I have two pieces of news for you on this Sunday:
1. Son C's band came in 7th place at their weekend marching contest (out of 14 finalists and 59 bands total)! This despite the fact that C's sousaphone bell FELL OFF during their performance and four people tripped over it! I know! It was a little bit more exciting than any of us had intended! Thank goodness everyone who tripped is okay; it was amazing to watch them all recover instantly and finish out the show like the rock stars they are. There were a CRAZY number of injuries at this contest. And ... that's why marching band counts as a P.E. credit, I guess.
2. I won a NaBloPoMo prize! And I totally never win anything! And it's A BOOK, which is tied with chocolate for the Very Best Thing To Win Ever! As soon as husband P fixes our fax machine so I can return the signed prize agreement whatsit thingie, a copy of Melissa Ford's Life From Scratch will be winging its way to me. I AM SO EXCITED. (And can I just say that I am in love with the cover of this book? I would like a wallpaper border of that made for my kitchen, please.)
Alrighty! Talk to you tomorrow! And the next day, and the next day, and the ... we have 24 more days of this, people. (I will try to become less boring. But don't hold your breath.)
