My mother in law was telling me when she went to school the school had quite a few loaner instruments fro the children. It was first come first serve as to what type of the musical instrument that you got and whatever was left over if you didn't like it then you didn't play any. At first, my step daughter wanted to play a trumpet but now buying a clarinet is all she has on her mind because her best girlfriend is playing one in school.

It's Easter Sunday. Outside is such a gloomy day I can remember years in the past when it was at least 60 degrees so the kids could have an Easter egg hunt outdoors. So this year we're having our Easter egg hunt inside. After the kids are done finding all the eggs the house was a wreck. The kids thought the Easter bunny would go to extremes hiding the eggs in tough places but hiding them in plain sight was the clue. The kids just walk right by some of the eggs.

It was such a beautiful day growing up in my neighborhood I'd always had my two girlfriends through thick and thin we would even be on the phone every night trying to figure out what we were wearing to school the next day. All of us got married in the same year and two of the guys were actually close friends to begin with. I don't know if it was a raise or not but the three of us girls were all pregnant at the same time. We put in hours and hours planning our own baby shower. The list of people grew and grew as the date got closer. Because we wanted it so perfect we sought the advice of a planner that could take care of all the little details that we might have overlooked. The original place that we thought we would have it at was too small for all the people that we invited. Considering we were inviting couples along with their small children this was a baby shower to ignite all baby showers. The Best Baby Shower checklist was gone over more than a Christmas present list. It turned out so wonderful for all of us. Now our children can grow up as we dis as friends forever we hope. Without this site and the help that became from it it would have been a lesser occasion.

Our new truck that we bought some of the interior parts are wore out and we like to get replacements for them. Looking for recaro seat covers to replace the ones that are there is more expensive than actually buying new seats off from eBay. A set of new seat covers because they're leather could cost 400-500 dollars a set of complete seats that look really great even though they were cloth is only 217 dollars.

You never where life is going to take you. After my husband got a call from a friend of his that had too much work for swimming pool installations in North Carolina at the time my husband was out of work in New York. We packed up a truckload of our personal belongings and headed there. While we were there my husband looked into a health insurance agency in nc to take care of our needs for our temporary stay.

We love watching gold rush on cable just to think about the weeks to come on how much gold they will find makes you want to go there and try it yourself. It's amazing on eBay how many gold trommel machines are available for purchase. The trommel is a machine that separates gold from dirt.

I can't wait for my son to see it. He hasn't been over to practice in three of four months. The family band continues but of course it's not the same without him there. We started the family band years ago as a way for all of us to spend time together with something we all enjoy. Even though we didn't go very far playing outside of the basement it was sure fun. I can't wait for my son to see the new
view that I purchased.
