The week has found me disgustingly busy around here. Last week, Joe and I headed up to Princeton to catch Mr. Anastasio. Hoping for some kind of nostalgia, we got just what we wanted. Tom came out and played a few tunes with Trey. What an odd feeling to be in the audience at the same venue I saw David Byrne at a year ago, sitting just behind Tom Marshall, who was now on stage. Weird! Overall, I still wasn't Trey Impressed, but the acoustic set always makes up for it and it's always fun to see Kuroda on the lights.
Our dryer arrived on Saturday afternoon. It made me wish I'd decided to buy the washer right then and there. That's ok, we can wait a few months til Spring! The washer will be a welcome (and futuristic) change to our laundry room, the last room to redo, not to mention the upstairs hardwood floors. I also spent two hours repainting the upstairs foyer and back stairwell. I painted it "Baked Scone" to match the two front downstairs rooms that we did this summer. It really pulls the house together nicely.
On top of all this, the school newspaper became my duty this year. I've spent the last few months managing a bulletin board of middle school kids in order to meet a deadline of last Monday for articles. Today, we went to print. Everyone is truly impressed and I can't say enough about my newspaper. Really, it ROCKS! I'm excited for the kids to be a part of a groundbreaking newspaper that I've facilitated.
