Its coming closer to the one year anniversary of Prince death and I don’t know how to feel about it. In a way I cannot believe that it has almost been a year since we lost him. We lost the musical genius that knew how to play over 23 instruments, that composed and produced his own music. I cant help but listen to his music and mesmerized by the way he used a synthesizer keyboard or a bass guitar.

I fell in love with his music at the age of 10 and never looked back. I had to have all his albums, I had to have anything that had his picture on it. I was just in love with the man. I cant say I didn’t cry when I heard he died. I was so devastated and it was so close to my birthday too. I wish I could be in paisley Park for his one year celebration but I know that’s not going to be possible.

Still sick and the noise makes it hard to rest

Posted February 1st, 2017 by admin

Well I went to the doctors yesterday and the doctor thinks it might be strep throat so on antibiotics I go. He told me to get lots of rest so I can get better. How does one get a lot of rest when you have 6 kids? It doesn’t help that I have asthma and right now just walking from my room to the bathroom tires me out. I am going to try my best to get some rest but I doubt I will be able to get a lot of it.

My house is so loud all the time, you would think I was running a music studio for rappers or something. Although it wouldn’t be a bad idea to invest into some headphones like the beyerdynamic at Guitar Center offers. I bet I would be able to get some sound sleep then if I had some noise cancelling earphones. While I love hearing my kids sing and play instruments when I am sick all I want to do is rest.

I have tons of house cleaning to do but I have no energy to do it. I will try to rest again and see if I can muster some energy to pick up a bit. How I wish I could hire someone to come and do the cleaning for me.

I feel like crap…why me

Posted January 30th, 2017 by admin

Can I ever go months without having to get sick? I hate having a low immune system. It seems that whenever anyone else is sick, I end up catching what they have or had. My youngest daughter had a sore throat and guess who ended up with the same that’s who. I started feeling that familiar scratchy throat feeling and by the evening it was a sore throat. I also ended up with a stuffy runny nose. Why cant it be one or the other? I hate having a stuffy and runny nose at the same time!!

I have tons of laundry to do and I have to clean up the living room but I haz no energy..whatsoever!! I am wheezy and all I want to do is put the covers over my head and go back to sleep. I don’t want to do anything at all!! maybe if I gather some energy after my nap I will do a little bit of housework…we will have to wait and see. I hope your start of the week is better than mine.

I don’t know if it happens to other people too, but I notice the weirdest things. Like I have gone to concerts with my friends and while I am listening to the music and enjoying the ambiance I am also noticing the musical instruments of the band. Like I notice what guitar the band members are playing or I will notice the yamaha subkick the drummer has on his drums or I will focus my attention on the keyboard player and his keyboard. I don’t know if that is part of my adhd kicking in or if its just one of the many quirks I have. Do any of you do the same thing?

I sometimes wonder if its because I am not that into the group playing at the time or what. I know when I went to the prince concert I didn’t pay attention to anyone but him but that is because he was my favorite musician so that might have played a part in it. It’s funny what I catch myself doing sometimes. Maybe I need to learn how to focus better. That might be something else to add to the list of what I want to improve in this new year.

New year new you or something like that

I had a rough year last year. I had a relapse of my migraines and spent most of the year in migraine hell. Almost every day with a migraine is no way to live. I tried different medications that the doctor prescribed and none seemed to be helping. I am sure the drastic weather changes triggered some of my migraines and I tried finding other triggers too.

While dealing with these migraines I lost my blogging mojo. Its a new year though and I plan on going back to blogging as it always made me feel better. I need a place to vent, a place to put my thoughts down and that is why I started this blog years ago. I just need to find my way back into the routine of things.

This year I plan to work better on my health too. I keep saying I will but I don’t do it. I need a swift kick in the butt to do it. I wish I had a better support system to help me do it. Since I don’t I need to learn to depend on myself more.

He is seriously interested in electric guitars

Posted March 24th, 2016 by admin

When you got as many kids as I do, you will find out that they all have different taste in music as well as wanting to play or learn to play different musical instruments. My oldest son is currently infatuated with learning how to play an electric guitar. I have heard him talking about different electric guitars such as the silvertone electric guitar and some other ones that I can’t remember the name of.

All I know is he is constantly telling his dad about them and seeing if he can somehow get one for Christmas or his birthday. He has been so dedicated to learning to play the flute that his dad is seriously considering getting him one. I thought he would get bored and forget all about practicing and learning how to play the flute and he kept up with it. He now wants to move to a guitar and I seriously think he will be dedicated to it too. We will see if his dad ends up buying him one.

I just love the look of the masonic rings

Posted February 11th, 2016 by admin

I have always admired masonic rings. My uncle owns one and he wears his proudly. Although I wish I knew more about the Mason’s he really doesn’t speak much on it. I do see him attend meetings and go and do some kind od social work but other than that I don’t know much.

I am guilty of telling my husband why couldn’t he join the masons and order one of masonic rings and then let me know what it is all about. I know that is just wrong but I truly think their rings are beautiful. Plus the Mason’s have been around for many years so it must be a great club to be in don’t you think ? Do you know anyone who is part of the Free Masons ? Have you been able to find out more information than I have ?

Please let me know if you know anything and let me know if they also own a masonic ring too.

Crappiness all around

Posted February 10th, 2016 by admin

Yet again one of the twins is sick. I don’t know what else I can do to stop these kids from getting sick. My son told me why cant I go to school one of the girls in my class has a cough and runny nose and she still went to school. I am sorry but I believe that is why my kids keep getting sick. If your child is sick , I think you should keep them home like I do when my kids are sick.

I hope he gets better soon. My oldest seems to have caught his cold and is a miserable little thing right now. I just hope I don’t get sick too. I have had enough sickness for the year I hope. These migraines on the other hand don’t seem to go away.

Whichever you decide is good for me

Posted February 2nd, 2016 by admin

I had been down and out not feeling to good. I have gone to the doctors and they have upped my meds so hopefully that takes care of my health. As soon as I started feeling better my son comes and tells me that he wants me to take a look at some musical instruments. Like I have mentioned before he is in band and has taken a major liking to learning how to play musical instruments. Whether its looking at guitar center ukulele or taking a look at guitar center guitar or keyboard he spends most of his time either practicing or looking up at what instruments he would like to try out next.

I would hate to crush his hopes and dreams so of course I will be as supportive as I can and let him try out different instruments until he finds the one that will be perfect for him. As a parent would you do the same thing? I know it takes me a while to try out different things before I make my choice so why would it be any different with him.

…… not up to it …..

Sorry I have not blogged much. This high blood pressure and migraines have been kicking my butt. I can barely stand any light much less the computer screen. As soon as I feel better I will back to my usual blogging self….
