Back to work.

If you can’t tell, school has started again and I’m back to work. The postings always decrease as we ramp up for a new semester. We’ve had 4 days of school yet so much activity. Here’s what has happened in a nutshell:

  • We entered 175 or so solos & ensembles in UIL Region 26 Solo & Ensemble contest (getting in all the paperwork – acurately – is always quite stressful).
  • Took 4 students to Waco for Area D Band Contest. Everyone did well in their rooms and we even had 1 student become a TMEA All-Stater. (The 2nd in SP history.)
  • Had our first Band Booster Meeting for the Spring.
  • Had my first Jazz Ensemble rehearsal for the year (it’s a zero hour class).
  • Played at a basketball game last night.
  • Had a fundraiser night at Gatt-i-land last night.
  • We had a photography company take pictures for a composite last November and that company has been here this week to make packages available to parents.
  • It’s little things but they add up and I’m exhausted already. I’ve also taken down Christmas from my house and did some more post-New Years Eve gathering clean-up (there were a lot of champagne glasses to wash). So, nothing too exciting; just busy.

    This afternoon, I have an appointment with an orthopedic specialist to see what we can do about making my knees healthy. They’ve gotten to hurting too often and my regular remedies of pain relief aren’t working as well. It’s time to get this thing fixed. As good as surgical procedures may be now, I really don’t want to have to go down that road quite yet. Let’s hope whatever the solution is, it’s mostly covered by insurance (yeah, right) or reasonably affordable. Whatever happens, I’m excited that I’m going to be able to have a better understanding of what’s going on with my knees. Let’s hope for the best!

    1. well hope ur knee feels better. ever since i leaped into my 30’s i feel every muslce ache and my joints make old man noises…

      better to be busy than bored is what i always say..


    2. Too bad you’re not old! Then, they’d let you have a knee replacement and you’d be as good as new. In the meantime, glucosamine works wonders for some folks. SAM-E or Microlactin do, too. I’ll cross my fingers that your doc will have a lovely quick fix.
