So, Chris is a euphonium player. He is really good at it. There is a big competition every year that he goes to, the Falcone Festival. It's a big deal for euphonium players. Most of the rest of the world doesn't know euphoniums exist, let alone the Falcone Festival, but for the small group of us who know what it is, it's a big deal. Anyway, so Chris goes to this competition every year, and spends a weekend up in Michigan with no cell service. And a few years ago he placed second. Then he placed third. This year, he came home victorious.
High fives all around! I am so proud of him.
Every 2 or 3 months I go through a week or two of funk. The symptoms are a pile of wrinkled, clean laundry in the floor, no clean spoons, no blogging, and naps on the couch after work. There is no known cure, but I usually just get sick of the mess and snap out of it. As of right now, the dishwasher is unloaded, the clothes are hung, and hey look I'm blogging!
The next couple weeks will be a little crazy but I am looking forward to them. This weekend I am headed home to do fun wedding things. (like try on a dress!) Weekend after that, Chris and I are off to Chicago for a little birthday celebration and an adventure in a new city. I am excited to do something new and take lot of pictures, and make something when I get home. It will be good to have fresh pictures and new experiences! I have lofty goals of getting some excellent journal wreckage in as well.
To give you something interesting to look at, here are 5 of my recently starred posts in Google Reader:
WHOOSH. July went by fast.
I did not go to California as planned, but I did do some book-destroying, some yard-saleing, some country-celebrating, some baseball-watching, some pooling, and some cat-grass-growing. I got a dining room table and some mismatched chairs, Molly and Hiram got a sweet baby, and Harry Potter was most excellent. It was a good month.
August should be just as fun. I'm headed to west Texas, Atlanta and Chicago and am greatly looking forward to the adventures. I am hoping to be better about documenting the month in progress than I was with July. Come on, August!
