Greetings, whoever reads my blog! Sorry I haven’t updated you guys in a while- I’ve been too busy to do so!
I thought about doing a post called, “The past few weeks of my life in pictures,” but I didn’t have pictures of everything I’ve done. So I guess I’ll just have to tell you what I’ve been up to and the pictures will have to wait.
So for the last few weeks, I’ve been doing a lot of the normal stuff- orchestra on Monday nights (though we had a concert about two weeks ago and now we’re done!!!), piano and violin on Tuesdays, church on Wednesdays, babysitting on Thursday morning, work on Thursday and Friday, and yardwork on Saturdays- and that has kept me running around, but there have been quite a few extra things we’ve done.
Last Thursday, Arwen and I had a Royal Schools examination (a fancy piano exam) and I don’t think I did too well on my scales, which was a bummer. But I do have an excuse for not doing well! I was sick two weeks ago from Thursday to Saturday, then had an awful ear infection last Monday that I’m still recovering from. That’s the reason I didn’t practice much. Last Monday, I was stuck in bed with a laptop watching dumb movies. Believe it or not, I’d rather have been doing school!! Instead of finishing my math last Thursday, I won’t be done until Friday.
Anyway, Friday was my little brother’s 2nd birthday and also the first day of a homeschool conference, which went through Saturday. I got to meet some famous people that I admire and one of them even signed my copy of their book!! (It would be an understatement to say I was overjoyed. My head was in the clouds for the rest of the day!)
At this certain conference, they had a session on movie-making, which is something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. It got me all geared up to start working on a script again, but the more I thought of the idea I’d had, the more it seemed kind of dumb, so I think I’m going to put that aside for a while. The more I think about making a movie, the more I’m nervous about it looking cheesy. But enough about that….
The next few weeks are going to be very busy for us, so if I don’t post for a while, don’t get worried! Arwen is graduating this year, so that’s going to keep us on our toes until June, then we’re having a party for her (a hoedown is more like it- a bootscoot!!), and then Arwen on down to my younger brother (child four of the five of us) are going to our grandparents’ house for the annual Camp Grandma-Honey!! I recently got the idea to do a movie with my cousins, so that’s another thing to think about. (I have so many writing things on my plate right now, it’s not even funny. If I’ve promised a short story or chapter or something to any of you who’s reading this, please know that I haven’t forgotten, I’ve just been busy. I’m working on it!!!)
Let’s see… is there anything I’ve forgotten? Oh, yeah! Last Thursday, I got my first phone! It looks exactly like Arwen’s, but I put a little beady-string-thing on it, so we can tell the difference between ours now!
Guess that’s it! Until my next post….
