My kids take several music lessons throughout the week and they cannot do without their road runner case , in fact, all of them has one of them to carry their instruments from home to school and then from school to their music teacher’s home. Some might thing that these cases are way too heavy for a child to lug a long everyday but it’s one of the best cases to protect your musical instruments. Unlike in Asia, their are Filipino maids to carry the kids music cases, here in the West, they are pretty independent and carry it themselves. I’m proud of the way my kids are brought up because I don’t want to have a maid do everything for them and they literally become handicap once the maid is gone. So yes, my kids carry their own road rummer cases.
I was invited by some friends to a belly dancing evening in April and I have to say I loved belly dancing and indian food – what a great combination right? Dancing with music and tambourine player I heard to accompany the belly dancer – what more can a woman ask ? My friends and I always think of something interesting to do around town, and if there is nothing to do, we head up to the city and paint the town red. And I anticipated an evening of good fun as the hostess and host are both very charming. I look forward to a full belly and some belly dancing moments.
Yes, the things we do for our kids just to keep them happy and motivated. The oldest kid will be back from college for March break next week and he had asked the spouse to look at some parker guitars at music123 . It was a huge hint that the spouse should buy him one since he did so well this term. I’m really not for it because it is way too expensive – and too valuable to bring it with him to college. But in hindsight, he is no longer a kid – he will be turning 19 soon and if we can trust him with a car, why can’t we trust him with a guitar the spouse argued. So in the end the spouse agreed to get him the guitar, while I only paid for the hard case – the things we do for our kids!
The spouse and I are always invited for parties by friends and families and sometimes friends of friends – now the best ones are parties hosted by his company or those related to his company. Why? because they are so much more glamorous and I loved playing dress up and I loved those with live music and a dance floor. I collect dj business cards whenever I go to such parties in case I need their services in the future and it’s always good to have them when my friends are throwing a party – or need suggestions.
Thus far this year, we’ve attended a few parties and have thrown one ourselves during the spouse’s birthday – and we did have live music and dancing – so I’m glad I had hired the dj that we both liked at one of the parties we’ve attended. My friends who had attended our recent birthday party cannot stop raving about the dj we had – I was only too happy to pass along the contact.
Watching my son with the tele that he just bought makes me feel old. He was changing it to make it sound better so that he can bring it with him to college makes me feel really proud of him. Music had always been his passion even though we tell him that his studies are more important but he had proven to us that he is a responsible kid and we can trust him to spend his money and time wisely. I guess we didn’t do too shabby a job with bringing up our kids, all of them plays some kind of musical instrument and still excel in school. I have to say they are an all-rounder – they love sports, music and they do well in school. Socially, they get a long with almost everyone in school and out of school. They do well in church as well and they play in the church choir, I think we can’t ask for better kids.
The local kid’s act a dance group in town goes for many competition around the county and I know that a lot of kids in town loved going to Kid’s act. They not only teach the kid’s to dance but they give the kid’s a place to be safe and teaches them self confidence. They also uses numark dj gear for their competition from what my kids’ told me and my kid’s had asked for some accessories as well because one of them is into the retro stuff like a turntable. I figured if everyone can enjoy the turntable, we will donate one to the dance group as we loved giving back to society. The spouse don’t like me to donate a lot of stuff but I feel that giving back is important because it also shows our kids that it’s ok to be generous to the people or places that needs it. Kid’s Act is a non- profit organization, and if we can help out why not right?
Every year we are invited for Halloween parties by friends and relative but this year we are doing the hosting, so we are quite excited but we have a theme for our Halloween party. We wanted the theme to fit the young kids and the older us – and no ghost theme because we wanted this Halloween to be all fun. So we chose the 60s theme where ah go go music is the in thing and we are giving out sunglasses for Halloween party favors. We managed to get some custom sunglasses here very cheaply and we loved it – and am glad that we are able to get party favors for everyone who shows up for the party. Now when the kids have summer party or if I need to volunteer for summer camp, I know what to get for the kids – custom sunglasses! they are so cheap – I know everyone can use a sunglass during the summer.
My laptop is driving me nuts! and i know I’m not the only one who’ve had this problem at one time or another. But I hate to pay someone a lot of money to look at it – instead I’m going to try this slow computer fix that one can find online. You really don’t need to know a lot about your computer to fix a slow computer. So if you are like me and refused to spend tons of money and be at the mercy of some computer whizz, than you may want to try this out for yourself.
The spouse and I were on a mini – getaway with some friends who had wanted to head out to Magnetic Hill for a musical. So we tried to book a decent hotel but couldn’t find one of course since it was so last minute. But we did finally get a room in a 3-star hotel that didn’t have a fridge but who needs a fridge when you have a tub – hahah! and I thought we were too old to do something like that but I guess some people just loved to party and that said – my friends were big party people.
Anyhow, the musical was great and we did drain out all the water that had melted the next day and return home after a very tiring drive but we did have so much fun and I don’t know how we did it with so little sleep. I guess we were not as old as we thought we were – I’m glad we went to Magnetic Hill – it sure brought back a lot of memories for the spouse and I.
I’m not very tech or gadget savvy but the spouse, well he’s totally different from I, he knows just about everything about the newest gadget that is in town and when I need to update my playbook apps to watch a movie or to play a game with my kids, I go to him. You can call me lazy but why bother to drive myself crazy when you have a spouse who is good in this kind of stuff right? After all, you want to make him feel needed and smart at times too. I’m so good at that – or my girlfriends said I’m so spoilt by the spouse.
