    Wednesday

    Supply teaching. Shopping. Bought a T-shirt, some loose tea and Sriracha sauce. Beautiful day! 24 C! We had our FIRST ASPARAGUS of the season tonight!! 1st from our new garden Of course, there was only enough for a tease...

    I took 2 rows of crinoline out of Daughter's dress. I can take it out, just don't ask me to put it BACK
    There is a HUGE garment bag FULL of crinoline. The dress is "flow-ier", but still not "perfect" again. Yet...

    • I bought GOT2 a few weeks ago, but I'm 'saving it' for a good time. Maybe Father's Day. Don't know if I can wait until Honey's birthday.

          64 Days, 21 Hours, 30 Minutes!

          Thursday

          Daughter had a 6 week apt. with the surgeon. Things are good. Then we went prom dress shopping.
          Again.
          A coupe possibilities. One is the same one that one of her good friends wants...

          to be continued


          More shopping. I bought a new wireless router (well, actually I bought 2 - another one for University Son) I haven't set it up yet. My old one is about 7?? years old. I also bought a few things for University Son's new place and capris and a skirt for my Daughter. I bought a T-shirt. Managed to spend almost $600! Yikes!

          We finished Season 2 of Game of Thrones tonight. 3 episodes

                            62 Days, 22 Hours, 21 Minutes!

                            Saturday

                            I went to a "Home Party" show. Weird, I know. You know how small towns have Craft Shows? Well, this was kinda like that. About 20 different Home Party businesses displayed in a community hall. Let's see if I can remember some of the businesses...Tupperware, Avon, Pampered Chef, PartyLite Candles, SheBella (purses), Steeped (teas), Enjo (cleaning cloths) and Xocia Chocolates. Of course I bought some chocolate. The sales lady was going on and on about how healthy the chocolates were...I liked the taste.

                            In the afternoon I helped Surfer Son and his Girlfriend paint the Bait Shop, then I came home had an iced tea and painted a doorbell post at our back door. I'll post before and after when I'm finished. Then I raked the Butterfly yard. University Son cut it while I was painting, it was really long and needed raking. This tree is flowering in my side yard. I wish I knew what it was...



                            Surfer Son and Girlfriend BBQd burgers. I picked asparagus and mashed an avocado.




                            Hockey is on the tv - again. I made a hot chocolate Chai. It was AWESOME!

                            No wine. I had iced tea instead. (Rosehip Hibiscus??? Maybe. I can't remember what it's called, but it's red.)
                            I had chocolate. A little square of the Xocia (But it's supposed to be GOOD for me!) and then the hot chocolate Chai (made with dark chocolate chips, whipping cream and a Chai bag)

                              Cleaned house. Spent time outside with the Butterflies. Roast chicken for supper with fresh asparagus from our garden University Son took the car back to Guelph loaded with stuff for his new place. Daughter wasn't happy about loosing the wheels for 2 weeks...

                                60 Days, 20 Hours, 53 Minutes!

                                Monday

                                Call at 8 to supply teach at 9 at the local school. Good day. Gave Daughter a ride, then she took the car to physio during her spare. Walk back to the barns with the butterflies after work.

                                After supper I stopped at the community theatre to pick up a prop chair for tomorrow. While I was loading it in my car, the director for the up-coming fall play formally asked me to be her Stage Manager. She said they wouldn't practice on Mondays. (when I have band - more on that in the next paragraph) I said yes.

                                Last band practice before the concert next week. Our conductor is stepping down after this concert. I've been asked to introduce the concert and dedicate it to the conductor next week at the concert. (I'm the only original member left). I'll probably cry. I've asked a guy to be my backup Thing is, I've been debating quitting band too. Part of me thinks I'm only still in band 'cause I'm the only "Charter Member" left (22 years)...not maybe the best reason to stay. I don't practice, I don't look forward to going to practice. I usually have to talk myself into it. I have fun while I'm there. I enjoy visiting with everyone....idk...I don't want to say anything, 'cause next week's concert is going to be all about the conductor leaving, I don't want to distract from that. I guess I still have time to think about it. Band won't start up again till September. Maybe it's time to shift from music to drama...

                                So, at band practice, I started thinking that this could be my LAST practice. And wouldn't you know, I had to get up and leave 'cause I started crying.

                                Sure, I can cry about THAT, but it took me WEEKS to cry about Surfer Son???

                                WTFs wrong with me???????

                                By all rights, I SHOULD have been a complete basket case during AND after Surfer Son's near drowning.
                                But I didn't/couldn't let myself.
