Our Budding Musician Wants to Expand His Ability

My son plays the trumpet in the school concert band and he’s enjoying it to the fullest. He loves it so much that he wanted to try playing other instruments too. But he was assigned to the trumpet section and must concentrate on learning that. Well, for now, that is because we never what the future holds. Maybe we will enroll him in a music class.

Aside from the trumpet, he is also interested to play drums and the keyboard. Musical instruments can be expensive but we can always choose between new & used. It would totally depend on the budget. But let’s just cross the bridge when we get there. He’s schedule is still hectic anyway, so we’ll see when we can squeeze playing more instruments in.

It's Just Around the Corner

Can you believe it? Valentine's Day is just around the corner. I couldn't believe it either not until I saw all the Valentine decorations at the stores over the weekend when we went shopping. I was like, wow! It's full of love in here. My husband was so amused when I said that.

And speaking of Valentine's Day, I am now thinking of what to give my beloved better half. Usually, we only give each other candies or chocolates. Wait, I did give him things other than that on the previous Valentine's Day that we celebrated. He also has given me stuffed toys with all the chocolates and candies.

There are a lot of ideas though when it comes to it on Pinterest. I actually saw this bouquet of liquor in mini bottles. It is really cute and for sure, my husband would go nuts if I'll give him one. But, I don't want a drunk husband especially on Valentine's Day or I'll will go nuts too. LOL. Nah, I know he will not get drunk. I know him so well.

I'll continue to browse Pinterest and see what else I'll find.

His Soul is Well Nourished

Listening to music is one of the many things that I love to do during my spare time. Sometimes, I even do it while I am juggling all my tasks either offline or online. Music gives me energy. And I listen to almost any kind.

And I am so glad to know that it is one of the things that my only son inherited from me. He loves to listen to music and he loves to sing too. He’s so like me. But the greatest thing that he recently did which really made me delighted and overjoyed was when he decided to join the school concert band. I was never interested in playing a musical instrument but he was and I couldn’t be any happier. And my husband was ecstatic; he played in his high school concert band so the legacy continues. I truly believe his music discovery at such an early age will take him places. He is only 11-years-old and he is showing so much interest in music – more than I could ever imagine. As his mother, I am here to support him every step of the way.

There’s a famous saying that says, music is food for the soul. Do you believe in that? I do.

After Christmas Sale

The husband was sorry that he got me the wrong thing for Christmas. Well, I told him not to worry because we can always return it. And that also meant one thing, I get to go shopping. Woohoo!!!

So off we went to the mall last Saturday. And lo and behold, there were after Christmas sales galore! I was ecstatic to say the least. More so that we are returning something at H&M. The husband surely knew where to go shopping for me.

We returned something and got me a new one. Well, we returned a bunch of socks. And guess what I got in exchange for it? A poncho! I've always wanted to have one and that time was just perfect. Why? It was 60% off. It gets no better than that, does it?

I was so happy that we got such a great deal. The socks were cheaper but the husband was more than willing to pay extra for the poncho. Isn't he sweet?

It was definitely a merry Christmas for me! (",)
