...a beautiful, warm, autumn day...
I can look out my window and see the San Juan Islands glistening in the distance. It's fabulous. The sun is shining and there are homer simpson clouds in the sky.
I just wish that my head would stop pounding and my stomach would straighten itself out.
Stomach muscles. OUCH. Who would have thought that such tiny, innocuous exercises could have such an impact so quickly. I love that feeling that I've exercised a muscle to soreness, though. So I'm lovin' this.
I bought my first, full-price pair of shoes for Susi yesterday. Oh. My. God. Why didn't anyone TELL me that children's shoes are made out of GOLD??? All of her previous shoes were either gifts or purchased from Value Village at a reasonable price for something she outgrows in 3 months. We'll be re-selling these Stride Rites.
I sang with the choir last night. I like a large portion of the music, and I enjoy the conductor's love of life.
I just wish I could feel friendly towards the veteran members. I don't click with them. They crack jokes during rehearsal - ones that just aren't funny to me. Several of them seem to miss lots of rehearsals, waltz in late, never help with the chairs, and sit knitting, eating food, or checking the blackberry while we are singing. So, for a choir with high standards, there are some elements that are quite lax - but only if you've been around a long time. So I think that I will enjoy the singing until the end of the semester and then opt out.
