In the times of Tschaikovsky....

So...I was nervous for NOTHING!!

Turns out, the Civic Orchestra is comprised of both professional musicians AND aspiring amateurs such as myself. So...when I sat down by the older gentleman playing the viola (did I see hearing aides?)...I took a deep breath and realized that I was, in fact, NOT in over my head. It was interesting to actually sit in on an orchestra rehearsal and observe string players. It's a WHOLE different world from band, that's for darn sure. The conductor is an he was quirky...but with perfect pitch. And that, my friends, was a good time.

Nothing else new going on here...fighting off a nasty three week cold....trying to muster up motivation to keep our apartment clean and my husband fed...happy that it's finally turning cooler...

And SUPER EXCITED that after this week, I might actually, finally, get to spend more time with my husband! Yes, it's true. Marching band has ONE MORE WEEKEND. After which, we are planning on parking our happy butts on the couch with supreme nachos and some really great movies...




It will be GLORious.

I have no idea what great movies...but we will, nontheless, find great movies.

Do you have any suggestions?

  1. A suggestion:

    This movie has been showing continuously in theaters in Mumbai since 1995 (when it was Bombay, haha). It is 3.5 hours of cuteness. I cried all the way through it. Hmm... perhaps it's more suited for a girls' night? :-)
