Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Payback Mondays With Music - 4Ms #Music Train

The kids are out of school Friday, the weekend, Monday and Tuesday.
Would you believe that I don't get to sleep in , not one of these days???????????????

Friday - Early morning student conferences and book fair
Saturday - 7am wake up for soccer game
Sunday - 7am wake up to be at church for skit, worship and choir
Monday - 7am wake up for 8am dentist appointment for the kids
Tuesday - Oh Lawd, there better not be anything on TUESDAY!!!!! Maybe I shouldn't look at the calendar!

I just want to sleep.

Not to mention the sickness traveling through my home. I just want to do early morning window openings in this house for awhile! Oy

Shaking it off with some big paypack.

My son just asked me why I wasn't playing any music. I'm so glad he asked. He has observed that his mother loves music in the house.

Welcome y'all.
