2. We bought Chrissy a new table! During the THROW SHIT OUT process of house cleaning, we got rid of a table he likes to lay on. Of course we had to replace it with something new!
3. The school year is winding down. I have 7.5 days with students left. My chorus concert is over and I only see each of my classes about two more times. I didn't realize how ready I would be for this year to be over. The kids have checked out. They have stopped following directions, and I have no patience left. Obviously not ideal circumstances.
Here are highlights from my 4th Grade Chorus/Recorder Karate Concert!
4. I love this!
5. I have been forgetting to show you the bookmark Paul got me. Isn't he the sweetest?
6. This week was the season finale of Bates Motel. (This is the series that is a huge prequel to the movie psycho. It stars Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga.) Guys, at the end of the episode, after Norma has died (Norman killed her), he was imagining her alive. Norma was playing the piano with the house all decorated for Christmas... and I bawled my eyes out. I don't know why! I hate the character Norma and I hate the character Norman! But that scene was just so gut wrenching that even though I hated the characters, it made me so sad. Well, I had my ugly cry and got it out of my system.
Apparently, Vera Farmiga played dead Norma... it wasn't a dummy. How did she do that so convincingly??? I tried it at home and Paul said I looked dead when I was very, very still, but I couldn't only hold it for a little bit without breathing.
And if telling you I was trying to pretend I am dead isn't random enough for ya, I have nothing else to say!
