Musical Neighbor

You have to understand that I don’t have a single musical bone in my body. I can’t carry tune, in fact my babies would cry when I would try and sing to them in an effort to comfort or soothe them into a nice slumber. NOT! They would cry and scream even louder, something I took to heart for a very long time and still throw in their face from time to time and we have a good laugh about. But it still a fact that I can’t sing.

I have never had any luck with any musical instrument that I have found myself attracted to or given access to. I took piano lessons for 2 1/2 years and still can’t read music or play even the simplest tune that many 2nd graders know by heart. I couldn’t even memorize chop sticks for goodness sakes!

So my neighbor was rattling on about his new microphone from the local guitar center atlanta that his wife had gave him for his birthday, last year, She round it at which he really didn’t have a birthday at all because he is a leap year baby and last year wasn’t a leap year. It seems that the years that he really doesn’t have a calendar birthday his wife really goes out of her way to make up for “inconvenience” of being a leap year baby, which I think is pretty cool of her. They are good people, don’t get me wrong. It is such a pleasure to have neighbors that are as nice as these people are it’s just not what I had planned for tomorrow night, but nothing that I can’t reschedule.

House Cleaning

My sister’s really out did themselves this year for my birthday present. They know how much a truly hate doing house work. My place isn’t necessarily dirty but it is cluttered and could really use a good top to bottom do over. So this year they found a raleigh nc house cleaning company online and they worked it out where I will be having help around the place for the next couple of weeks.

If only I can keep it that way until the holiday seasons come around. I mean really, summer is on it’s way out and fall is following it right on it’s heels and after that it will be Christmas! With all of my friends and family members that stop by for the holidays I always get stressed out just thinking about it all.

Bean Bag Chairs

Last month was a great month considering my bonus had came in from work, that has been long over due and had a big smile on my face while paying bills that desperately needed to be paid. After all my bills were all up to date I still had a big chunk of money left and I knew my nieces birthday was coming up, so I had my husband come with me to so some shopping for her birthday party that we were both planning on attending.

After going from store to store in town we found only one gift we both thought she would like, but I felt that it just wasn’t enough for such a  such a great kid as my niece. I made a quick phone call to my sister to see if she had any ideas on what my niece really wanted or needed, and found that she had been asking for a bean bag chair. My sister mentioned she hadn’t gotten one for her and told me that she wouldn’t get one I’d I was going to get her one, and so I told her my husband and I would love to get her one.

Shortly after that phone call I sat down at my computer in my office at home and searched around on the Internet to see if I could find one for a good deal. It didn’t take long at all for me to find one for a price I just couldn’t refuse. Needless to say I ordered not only one but two, so if she had a friend over then they could both hangout sitting on their cool bean bag chairs. It arrived shortly on my doorstep, and I wrapped them up and put them away until my nieces birthday party. When her big day came, she ripped open her gifts and she was ecstatic to have not only one bean bag chair but two! I’m so happy to give her something she wanted and to see such a big smile on her face on her special day and have all my bills paid and up to date.

The Best Electric Guitar For Rock Players

So my sisters and brothers have all now greed that this excellent looking Gibson SG Special 2014 Electric Bass Guitar would be best for rock players such as our kid brother is and would be the perfect guitar for all of us to give to him for his birthday that is quickly approaching.  We think he will like the Chocolate Satin one rather than the Fireburst Satin or Cherry Satin ones that are offered as well.

This is a bit cheaper than the previous Fender Road Worn Stratocaster  that we were considering, so this just might be the winner after all. We only a few weeks to decide, September will be here sooner than we can blink an eye. I hate September. That is when all the school buses are back on the road, making our daily commute a hassle. And it also means that winter is right around the corner, ugh.

For The Love Of A Guitar

I couldn’t tell you if $899 is a good price for a Fender Road Worn Stratocaster or not. But I do know that if our brother doesn’t get one for his birthday on September 3rd, which is only a little less than two months away, I know he will be hard to deal with. Little brother had to sell his guitar 3 years ago because he lost his job and almost lost his house and he has been more miserable than normal ever since.

I brought it to my other siblings attention and we all decided to pitch in and buy him one. I’m glad that it isn’t me doing the looking around for this particular type of guitar because I really don’t know much about guitars and wouldn’t know a good deal if it was staring me in the face. But what ever is found and decided on is fine with me.
