Thursday and the constant need to get things done has not changed. I got up this morning and hopped right in the shower. Heather gave me a quick kiss and headed off to work. I got dressed and then got my bags together and ate my breakfast. We watched “The Early Show” on CBS and it was interesting as there was a discussion about FEMA running out of money and not being to help out the people who are relying on FEMA aid soon. Well, for those that aren’t aware, that directly impacts most everyone in the Twin Tiers. They may soon be looking at a lack of FEMA aide which means less money. It has me a little concerned, although I think this area will figure out a way to rebuild with or without FEMA. Anyway, after a while it was time for me to be off to work while the kids were off to school.
I got to work and set things up for my day today. It was a day of Music History. My sixth graders started their unit today by learning about the Antiquity Era. My seventh graders finished their unit on The Renaissance and then started their unit on the Baroque Period. My eighth graders finished their introduction to “Jazz” by Ken Burns. The day went well and there were a few minor interruptions, but overall the day went very well. I got done with my instructional day and came right home.
I got home and helped the kids a minute with some homework. Ruth was excited as she told me that her teacher wants to put in her application for Area All State and asked if it was okay. I told her of course it was okay and told her I was proud of her! After that, I went into the basement and watched some of my DVR’d shows including “How I Met Your Mother” and “Up All Night” along with “Free Agents” before Heather called me upstairs for dinner. I ate dinner with the family. After dinner, I finished watching “Free Agents” and started watching “Harry’s Law” a second time (I didn’t understand everything the first time around). After a while, I headed out.
I got to rehearsal for the Binghamton Community Orchestra. We started to get seated and another trumpet player showed up. By the end of the night, I got the impression that they didn’t want me playing first trumpet. I’m trying not to take it personally. I keep telling myself that I’m entering a group that is already established and I need to ditch my ego and just play the parts they tell me to play. So, I told the trumpet section leader as well as one of the directors that if they need to move me, move me. Just let me know. I got done with rehearsal and headed home.
I got home and Heather was “chomping at the bit” to watch Big Bang Theory, so we watched that show together on DVR. After that we watched the show “Whitney” which I had also DVR’d along with “Charlie’s Angels”, and “The Office”. After that, Heather and I went to bed.
Okay, so no reading again tonight.
