Even a 12 step program is not enough for me!

  • We start with jazz band rehearsal on Monday, Jan. 23. They start at 7 am. Why do I do this to myself? I guess ’cause I enjoy it. Not the “torture” of the hours but the activity. I’m addicted to band.

    Hello, my name is Cathy Benford. I’m a band addict.

    Today is my dad’s 76th birthday. Unfortunately, because of everyone’s crazy schedules, (Trish has it rough since Steve Jobs introduced the Intel based Apples this last week) I have no idea when we’re going to go celebrate. My mom’s birthday is coming up in a few weeks and I think I might be having to go out of town that weekend so maybe we can just have one big celebration for the both of them….

    I spent this morning making a lasagna I can eat off of all week. It’s the only way I can eat healthy and not spend what little money I have left over from the last paycheck I got almost a month & a half ago.

    Can you believe they ask us to go a month and a half without pay between the December paycheck and the January one? Sucks. Every year, I say I’m going to put money aside to help me survive that time period. Every year, I never get around to it. I’ve gotta figure out some plan to accomplish that this year. Hell, if I’m going to buy a house in May, every penny is going to count for a long time. Luckily, I’ll have my car paid off this summer so that’s a little more money I’ll have to put towards a house payment.

    Okay, back to my lasagna…. The sauce is almost done. This little ninja sure can make some sauce!

    1. damn you UIL for putting S&E so early this year!! Ugh. Ours in Feb. 4. Talk about WAYY too eary. Whatever. We’ll just play our crappy, easy ensembles/solos, get our ones, and then pick the real music for State.

      Mmmm…lasagna sounds good. I’ll have that.

    2. Our S&E is on Feb 11. It’s about when they normally do it here. Last year, it was too late, I think. I am glad ours isn’t a week earlier. It’s amazing how much you can get done in one week.

    3. Great idea with the Lasagna!! Comfort food always helps when the days are busy!! Eat well and don’t forget about sleep. No more sickness allowed!!!!!

      I’ll have to get down there next time you make Lasagna!! I’ll bring the Chianti Classico Riserva.

    4. OH GOD does lasagna sound wonderful right now! It’s been ages since I’ve had any. Mmmmm…Uuuugggglllll! Just ship some of those leftovers down this way! ;o) Well good luck with your busy week, hope it is enjoyable even though it sounds manic!
