I've been panicking for a while now about my clarinet. I know it was delivered approximately three weeks ago, but I hadn't heard anything about it. I've started to have wild imagination scenarios go through my mind that it was delivered to the wrong place or I copied the wrong address down. I even had some nightmares about it. I finally decided I just needed to call and ask about it. My worries were unfounded. My clarinet is fine. He actually just finished it this evening he said. He needs to let it sit for a few days to make sure that everything is set the way it needs to be. He said that it should hopefully be on its way on Saturday. Whew! I know I don't play it much, but it's like my baby and I really feel lost without it. Actually, it will technically become Josh's instrument, but I think he'll let me play it every once in a while. I have high hopes and good intentions to get Josh his very own brand new Buffet clarinet as a graduation present, but I'll just have to wait and see how my finances are at that time. That is when I should be getting out of debt, but it will also be when Josh loses his SSI. The clarinet really needs a new case. Mine has been battered and torn over the past 27 years. Maybe I can suggest that as a Christmas present from my aunt.

Well, I need to head to the game shortly. I have no idea what to eat for dinner. I don't have any simple single meal things to cook. I was kind of hoping I might have some birthday money in the mail. I usually don't get any presents. My aunt, however, almost always sends both me and Josh checks which comes in handy. I try to spend it on myself, but well... you know how it is... always self-sacrificing. Money is short this month, but I'm prayer-ful and hopeful that the craft fair will go well. If you are of a mind to pray at all, I certainly wouldn't mind a little word lifted up on my behalf.
