Hectic = Forgetful


When I’m in a rush, I forget things. I think that’s something that happens to everyone occasionally.

Last night, the oldest child had what is for her, the final band performance at her school. Since we’re moving, she won’t have any more performances at this school. One of her very good friends wanted to go so I agreed to pick her up at the last minute. While I was out picking up said friend, (luckily, we live in a small town) and running red lights doing it, the oldest was home taking a shower. Why she waited until the eleventh hour to get in the shower is beyond me. Also, the Mister was doing his best to rush home so he would make it too. It was madness. I get home with the friend long enough to run in the house to pee and then we all ran out and piled in the car to go to the school. Her band instructor is a beast and very strict. We got the oldest to the school one minute late, heheh, but she didn’t get into trouble.

In all my rushing, I forgot the camera. Big :( I had it sitting on the mantel and  had even charged up some batteries for it but walked out the door without it. I’m totally bummed. Her last performance at this school and I don’t have any pictures or video. Again :(

Afterwards, we took the lot of us out for some Arby’s. We had dinner at 8:30 last night, heheh. Even without the camera, it was a good night. All three classes, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade bands, played Christmas songs so it was a good way to get in the Christmas spirit.


  1. I was just thinking this week about our band Christmas concerts when I was in middle school and high school. It really did make everything seem festive and by the time we played the concert, we all were so ready for Christmas.
    I'm going to myparents this weekend, I may have to dig out the VHS tape with the music. I can't ever hear Sleigh Ride without thinking of band.

    Awww.... I hate when I forget my camera. You are right though, those are the kinds of things that happen when you are in a rush. I was stressed and rushing on Monday and we forgot Jenna's project for school. It's always something.....

  3. Pam~~Despite the very uncomfortable bleacher seats, I enjoy the Christmas band concerts too. I'll miss them if my daughter ever decides to quit.

    Dana~~I'll have to remember the camera next year even though it will be at a different school.


I love comments. Leave me one. Now.
