Since I live so far away from my family it means that I don't get to participate in all the cool things that happen in my family's life. Well, today I got an extra special treat.
My niece and nephew had their band concert tonight and I got to listen via my mom's cell phone (thanks, Mom!) whilst munching down a bowl of popcorn. It was almost like I was there! Although the sound wasn't perfect through the phone, what I could hear was fantastic! I could not believe how GOOD they were! They are in 7th and 8th grade but sounded better than most high school bands I've heard.
Way to go guys!! Great job!
I know my sister's going to hate reading this, but I took Peter for a walk after work while it was still 85 degrees outside. This weather is absolutely unbelievable! Anyway, on my way back towards my house I had to walk a little distance on a busier road. At one point, the cars were stopped at a light and I noticed this guy driver was staring at me and smiling. I sorta assessed the situation out of the corner of my eye and deduced that he wasn't jeering at me or anything else threatening, so I sorta looked his way so he knew I was aware of him. He smiled even more. This guy was totally checking me out! Feeling a little flattered but annoyed, I looked back at him--straight on--and realized yes, he was smiling at me, but he wasn't flirting. It was one of the docs from work trying to say "hello".
