No Time Like The Present

I am getting married next year. Even though my wedding is a year away, I feel like the best time for me to start planning it is right now. I heard about how stressful wedding planning is. That is why I believe it is best to start planning early. I have already contacted the wedding saxophonist, the venue and caterer. I have also selected my bridesmaids.

I want my big day to go as smoothly as possible. I am hoping that there are no mishaps. I am also hoping that I do not turn into a bridezilla. I have a tendency to be a worry wart, so I am always thinking about what can go wrong. However, my wonderful husband-to-be is always reassuring me that everything will go as planned.

Memories Of A Wonderful Gift

My husband and I just went through our wedding album. After 25 years of marriage, we are still happy and grateful to have found each other. Reviewing the album on our anniversary is a pleasant reminder of the day we were married.

We were blessed to have such a beautiful day for our wedding. The weather was bright and sunny, but it wasn’t too hot. There was a light breeze that didn’t interfere with our outdoor reception. We found the perfect caterers and our roast beef dinner was enjoyed by everyone.

One of the nicest surprises of the day was the wedding violinist Manchester. My husband had hired him as a surprise gift for me. He walked through the reception, playing beautiful music. Everywhere he walked, people stopped talking and listened. It was a magical performance that I will never forget. It was a wonderful gift that I will hold in my heart for the rest of my life.

Regular Cooling System

It’s warm in this part of the country, even during the holiday season. Air conditioning Manchester is a must have for every home or office, just ask my neighbor. His family always makes sure that their central cooling system is updated seasonally. They have lived here several years, so nobody needs to tell them how important regular maintenance is to any hard working cooling device. It seems like someone is always on their rooftop every few months. This is the best way to make sure that your equipment is running efficiently and never breaks down in an emergency. By doing this regularly for any home, office, or other important place you own, your family will avoid unnecessary costs each year. My neighbor and his family are a great example of how to keep cool during every season. This year, I will be following their example and keeping my cooling system maintained.

The Morning Dance

The Morning Dance…you know the one I’m talking about. It’s no Rumba, definitely not a Waltz. It could, I suppose, resemble a Salsa due to the speed. I’m talking about the multi-tasking and speed that it takes for a mom to get everyone up and out the door on time for school. If we were to post a Bolton CCTV in the home of Beth, mother of Lincoln (2), William (4) and Kate (9), this is what her morning dance would look like.

6am Wake up to the sound of Lincoln’s feet running down the hall to her room.
6:01 Put him in bed with her so she can sleep longer.
6:15 6:30 6:32 Wake up to the poking of little feet in her back.
7:00 Lay awake browsing Facebook on her phone while he lays comfortably over her head sleeping soundly horizontally somehow forcing her to sleep on the last 6 inches of the king-size bed.
7:30 Get the rest of the crew up and ready for school.
7:35 Remind everyone to brush teeth, go potty and brush hair.
7:40 Make breakfast. Ok, put waffles in the toaster and spread some peanut butter on them for protein.
7:45 As Beth’s morning dance of packing lunches, braiding hair and filling water bottles continues in hyper speed she is stopped in her tracks…interrupted by a mysterious flushing sound.
7:46 She discovers that yes, once again Lincoln tried to flush the remote. Thankfully…it didn’t go down…like the toothbrush did. Causing a major flooding incident just a few days prior.
7:47 Close and lock the bathroom door to prevent Lincoln from entering and flushing more items.
7:48 Return to packing lunches, braiding hair and filling water bottles.
7:50 Unlock the bathroom door for William who needs to go potty. Again.
7:53 Sign Kate’s agenda and report card slips.
7:54 Write a check for the book order that is due.
7:56 Write a check for a fundraiser order that is due so Kate can earn fantastic junk…uh, prizes.
8:00 Realize Kate’s homework had a front AND a back. Rush her to finish it while she eats a waffle being careful not to drip the peanut butter on her shirt because it’s picture day…shoot!!
8:01 Write a check for school pictures.
8:10 Call everyone to action…Kate’s brown boots are missing. The gray ones are in the closet, they don’t match. The black don’t even come close. She must have brown. It’s critical. It’s picture day after all! Even though she wore them the night before. They’ve vanished. The search team must find and locate them! Too bad the search team is 2, 4 & 9 and the worse finders ever!
8:15 FINALLY Beth finds the boots. In the car. Of course. Why wouldn’t they be in the car?!
8:16 Another mysterious flushing sound. William forgot to shut the door. This time it was a (thankfully mini) Captain America. He didn’t survive. All that is left is his shield which Lincoln is holding with a death-grip as he has a super sensor that tells him when William wants something causing William to melt down.
8:18 Tell everyone to head to the car instructing them to bring waffles with them.
8:20 Coats. Where are the coats?!
8:21 Find the coats in the car.
8:22 Catch the cat who got out the door when they were finding coats.
8:23 Change Lincoln’s diaper.
8:25 She finally gets out the door and buckles William and Lincoln into their car seats.
8:25 Something smells.
8:26 Head back in the door to change Lincoln’s poopy diaper.
8:30 Sprint out the door and zip out of the driveway to avoid being late for school…again.
8:35 Realize the gas light is on…and the sensor says zero miles left.
8:40 Offer up a prayer that they’ll make it…they live in the country. There are no gas stations in the corn fields.
8:43 Make it to school in time. Barely.
8:44 Pull up for Kate to exit. Look right at the teacher on duty and say, ‘I love you’ as she is closing the door for Kate who is already far enough away it’s clear the ‘I love you’ wasn’t for her…
8:46 Post to Facebook about the embarrassing proclamation of affection to the teacher.
8:47 Drive to the next school to drop off William.
9:00 Head home to recoup just in time to do the dance all over again the next day.

His Assistant

My dad is someone who works at an ear wax clinic Manchester and who helps out a variety of individuals by doing that. He is someone who looks out for everyone who comes into his clinic and who treats each visitor with respect. I have taken the job of being my dad’s assistant, and I am very happy to be giving him a hand in all that he does. I am excited for the job that I have and the chance that I have to affect lives. I know that my dad is happy to have me working with him, and it has been nice to have the chance to get to know him in a new way by working alongside him. I love the job that I have and the man that I work for and assist.

A Great Gift

Yesterday I went shopping for my dads birthday and I decided that I would get him a sentimental gift as well as a humorous one. For the first gift I got him a large picture of my family and a new fishing pole. For the second set of gifts I got him a package of depends and some hearing aids Manchester. My dad thinks he is the worlds biggest comedian so I decided to show him up a little bit. I have to say I am more than estatic to watch him open his gifts tonight after dinner. He is always pulling pranks on me and cracking jokes so I figured a few pranks myself would not do any harm. I just hope my mother has a sense of humor towards this as she is tired of the constant messing around between the boys in the family.

Halloween Fun

There are many make up secrets that every person on Halloween has some are fun to plain scary. The scary effects do look better when a makeup artist Manchester does the job, but many people can do a fine job on there own. The safe Halloween makeup comes in large quantities. There are multiple colors in cream make up including the white no smudge cream and the cream that glows in the dark. Grease makeup is also fondly used and that comes in different colors. Different colors and sparkles of eye shadow palates, eyeliner, mascara, and roll on body glitter. Many different types and kinds of lip gloss and lip balm are hard to choose from. There are tattoo kits, eyelashes, and children’s body stickers. There are also many different kinds of make up kits to produce something innocent or something scary. Dressing up is best saved for Halloween.

A Band Teacher Making A Difference

I wasn’t the typical band geek in high school. It was a requirement to either take chorus or band, and anyone who has heard me sing knows that was never going to be my strong point. So band it was.

Because I wasn’t particularally musically inclined, I found it difficult to focus in band practice. Many of my teachers were harsh with anyone who was not a prodigy, and I felt defeated each time I left the room. But one teacher saw my struggle and reached out to me.

He was a saxophone player Manchester, but was willing to help a struggling drummer find her coordination and rhythm. He offered private lessons, constructive criticism, and heaps of encouragement. He made band fun. He made music fun.

I no longer take band, and I am far from a professional drummer. But I’ve never forgotten his kindness and support, and will occasionally tap out a few beats in his honor.
