It's Friday and I'm glad. Don't know exactly why, but I am. Play day is a bit different today. The boys won't be here until around 6PM - parents are going to hear a speaker at their church. Papa and I will be the boy's playmates until around 9:30 or so. I foresee snacks and a movie.
Harry is playing golf today so I'm having a fairly quiet day. Many, many things I should be doing but I'm not doing even one of them. Maybe another day - who knows..... I better be resting today because tomorrow will be a killer. I have to rise and shine early, make two (made from scratch) coconut pies, attend a reef club meeting, and attend two (yes two) recitals.
The two oldest grandsons are both in music and both have a recital tomorrow. Jesse's is at 1:30 and James' at 4:30. Both boys are moving right along in their music. Jesse will sing and accompany himself (without written music) at the Grand Piano. James will play a solo, but he won't have to sing. He is certainly capable of singing but I hope he goes along with the program and doesn't decide to sing anyway. Maybe I can get good pictures or perhaps their dad can get a video clip so I can post it. The children don't wear formal for these recitals - rather they wear what they'd wear to church. That makes it a lot easier on parents' bank accounts.
I'm so far behind that I don't feel like I'll ever catch up. I think I mentioned in an earlier post that I have my yearly physical next Wednesday. I hope the doctor can pinpoint a reason for my being so lazy and lethargic for the past few weeks. He'll probably tell me to force myself off my butt and get busy. That will be OK, too. I have a doctor that I have confidence in and he just tells it like it is - no mincing words. He's made me very angry at times over many years but I have to admit that I've never had him be wrong about me. One time several years ago he told me to "Go home, take aspirin, drink juice. I have lots of sick people in this office and need to take care of them." I was whining about a common cold at the time. I was ready to spit fire, but did what he said because I knew he was right.
I think I'll take a short nap before the evening fun begins. I want to be as fresh as possible for the boys. I enjoy them so much and they always make me feel better.
