Today was Fair Day with our church. We all met up at the fair and hung out for awhile. It was a lot of fun. But of course there's this one guy who's always taking pictures, and now they're available on his website. So after careful consideration, I've decided......

I need a haircut.

That will probably be what I do tomorrow if I have any free time between noon and my lessons.

Happy August, everybody!

So my parents are moving back. In case I never told anybody, my brother came back from Michigan in March or April or somewhere. And now he's convinced my parents to come back, too.

So we're flying Nicole back down in the next few weeks so she can get a job and get a jump on saving for a deposit on an apartment. Nicole, Christi, and I are planning on moving out together once the parentals are back.

And that's the update for now. :)

I interviewed last week for a position in another music school. Their piano teacher went in for surgery on her wrist, and is going to be out for a few weeks, so they're pretty desperate for a replacement. It pays more than the other place, but I'm not thinking of replacing the old one; this is just a supplement. I also like that it's in Wellington, which is the area I'm planning on moving once I get my own place. So that's good.

I'm very happy about it.

So I've been reading a lot of Terry Pratchett lately. Actually, I read a couple back when my grandmother was dying, and then I read a bunch last year when my family were getting ready to move. So far I've read The Colour of Magic, The Light Fantastic, Equal Rites, Maskerade, Monstrous Regiment, Thud!, Night Watch, Guards! Guards!, Mort, The Truth, Thief of Time, The Fifth Elephant (which I don't really remember a lot about, honestly), and Moving Pictures. I have already bought, though have yet to read, Good Omens, Small Gods, Going Postal, Wyrd Sisters, and Pyramids, and I'm in the middle of Reaper Man right now. :)

This is how it is when I discover an author I like: I devour everything of theirs I can get my hands on, as fast as my schedule will allow. I'm enjoying myself thoroughly.

For those of you not on Facebook, my cat, Samson, died on Sunday night. I'm doing okay, all things considered, but still missing him, and I wish I had taken more pictures of him in the short time I had him.

I'm trying very hard to stop myself from getting another kitten.

I just thought I should let you guys know, in case I do get another kitten later and you're all "WTF happened to Samson?"

I just finished making dinner. I made dinner tonight because both of my sisters are working late, and therefore couldn't make it themselves.

I did not want to make dinner; I wasn't hungry, and there were a bunch of things I'd rather have been doing. Which made me think..... if I lived by myself, I probably would never eat dinner. At least, not on nights I work late. Maybe on weekends I would eat dinner.

I got a new kitten. His name is Samson. His favorite place to sit is on my lap. But he also likes boxes.


I'm still getting more students -- up to about 30 -- so I'm pretty busy. Trying to get up the nerve to finally quit the chiropractor's office.

Things I'm saving up for:
1. An apartment
2. A laptop
3. iPod Classic

Also, I really, really need a maid.

My stress level has gone so far down since it's been just me and the two youngest girls, it's not even funny. By the end of this month, I will have my credit cards all paid off, and a new bed. :)

Since my mom, Nicole, and Trevor went to Detroit, our cat, Aerial, has killed two rats and left them in the front yard. We think this is her "acting out" because of the confusion and/or loneliness.

So the other piano teacher at the place where I work...... died last night.

So weird. He was at work yesterday. He'd been having problems with his diabetes, but nobody thought he was going to drop dead.

They've asked me to take over some of his students, but I don't know yet how many, starting next week. Again, this is a very weird time for me, so..... hmmmm.

I'm still processing, I guess.
