Time to get moving

I tried going to bed early last night. I felt tired and so I read a little and then turned out the lights around 10:30. At 11:30, I was still awake so I gave up. I took 1/2 a tylenol p.m. and then came and made the rosary that will be fore my friend's new baby. Then I got back in bed and crocheted until I felt the drugs kicking in. Of course that means I slept in late this morning. I just emailed my principal about my concerns on teaching comm. app. next year. We'll see what happens with that, but I figured that nothing would change if I didn't ask. I offered the possibility of teaching the classes in the fall only and we'll see if he bites on that one. The spring is so full of activities that I barely functioned last year with just three classes.
Today we play our two concerts for director's band. Thankfully the music this year isn't too bad and I can play almost all of it. I could probably have gotten it all if I could have practiced, but since Josh and I are sharing the clarinet, it makes it difficult. I've got to start looking into buying him his own clarinet. The problem is that a new one will cost about $2700. If I could find a decent used one, I'd buy it, but the problem is finding it. There are several on ebay, but you never know what you'll get on there so there's risk involved. I guess I'll keep my eye out.
Josh comes home tomorrow. It will be nice to have him back. I've talked to him a couple of times at camp and he seems to be having a good time. He was, however, upset with the lack of etiquette shown at some of the concerts. I really wish that students understood how rude it is to talk during a performance or to put their feet up on the seats. You'd think that band students would have been taught those things.
Well, it's time for lunch so I better go find something to eat.

I hope the concerts went well. It will be nice to have your son home. It gets awefully quiet when they're not around :-)

Just catching up. Sorry to hear about the extra classes. Couldn't you talk to the principal and remind him of the spoken deal you had last year?
