Sorry to have gotten off of my posting schedule the last few days – there were good reasons, I swear!
The best of which may be this newest addition to our family:
Say hello to Munchkin! Or at least his name is Munchkin until we can all agree on a name for the little guy. He’s five months old and already a spoiled little shit, but we love him any way. He’s been sucking up a lot of my time for the last few days, since it’s difficult to type a blog post while a kitten is nibbling at your knuckles. I’ve also been doing a lot of back-to-school prep, which I hope to share on here in the next few days.
I’m also super-excited to tell you all about another recent development in my life: I bought a car! My previous car did NOT pass inspection, so my family was down to one car for a little over a week. But we went out and found me a car, I withdrew some money from a CD in my name at the bank, and paid cash for that sucker. I’m so excited, especially since it means that I’m going to be averaging around 32 miles+ to the gallon now!
I’ve been super-exhausted and run down, but I’ve been trying to make the best of the last few days of break. I got some really solid practice time in today after both my clarinets came back from the shop, and I’m really excited to truly dig in to this semester. But, at the same time, I’d really just like to sleep for another couple of weeks…
