Man in My Room

The weekend before last I woke up scared half to death.  What woke me?  A man’s voice.  A man’s voice in my bedroom!  I sat straight up in bed convinced there was a man in my bedroom.  Then the voice came again!  There was no man in my bedroom.  (Not that I would be complaining about a man in my room.  Yahoo!  But usually I know about his presence before waking up!  I’m just saying…)

So where was the voice coming from?!  Then I realized the voice was coming from the high school track PA system next door.  They were testing it for the track meet scheduled that day.  Ugh!  Not how I wanted to wake up.

Shortly after that, I realized the neighbors behind me where setting up for something in their back yard.  What could it be?  (I am such the neighbor stalker!  Aren’t you glad you don’t live next to me?)

An outdoor concert!  Mr. Neighbor is a music teacher.  All of his students and their families arrived at noon for a BBQ and to show off their newly acquired skills.  At first I was a little nervous about what torture to my ears was about to occur.  (Both my daughters play violin.  I know what I’m talking about here!)

But it turned out great!  The kids played instruments and sang for close to two hours.  It was such a great afternoon watching the track meet and listening to live music!

Last week my younger daughter had her annual gymnastics spring show.  Each student got to showcase several gymnastics maneuvers including cartwheels, handstands, balance beam, vault and bars with their class all at the same time.  It was a bit chaotic!

And my point and shoot camera took almost all blurry photos again.  This is the only decent shot I could get of her on the mats.  Hate you camera!

She’s in the back row, far right, in the green.

And then it was time for medals and another blurry photo (I swear my camera phone takes better photos)!  A year’s worth of gymnastics fees and she gets a medal.  That sounds about right…

Just kidding.  She loves gymnastics and is pretty good at it.  So I pay and she plays.  Priceless.

Do you get “free” entertainment at home?

    My mom said the same things while I was in gymnastics. Lots of money equaled one cheap medal. Then after several years and many competitions I started to get trophies and that made it all better. 🙂

      I don’t know about trophies. Medals take up a lot less room. Sassy already has a tendency to keep everything that comes into her life. LOL
