Random observations from my day

Squats make my butt hurt...all day (please tell me that means they're working).

Clarinets make really squeaky sounds (please tell me that with some practice, that will stop).

Bass Clarinets squeak, too...only lower. And they're big. As big as my 11 yr. old trying to play it. (please tell me she'll grow into it).

8 yr. old girls love to chat (please tell me it'll resolve before she's 38 - ha!).

Hubby home on time...dinner on the stove (and it's not 7:00)...Grandma over for a visit...life is good (please tell me things will always be this happy - except the butt hurting part).

As a former clarinet (B flat, alto, and bass) I can say that the goose squawking you hear will subside with practice.

Despite all that, sounds like you have a good day and your parting wish is my wish for you too!

OK, I didn't use to BE a clarinet, I used to PLAY a clarinet.

You know - just for the record.

Spin class makes your saddle hurt...more than squats.

I'm glad you mentioned your blog in your comment on mine today. I've been thinking that you were another Karen I knew, but she doesn't have a blog!

We have clarinet hell here at my house too, but I must say I prefer it to saxophone hell.

Lorena, CF - Thanks for visiting.

The clarinet situation here was great last year. Odd as that was the 1st year playing. What's up with the squeaking getting worse? UGH!

CF sorry about the sax. Happily (maybe) child #2 here will be playing violin...

When I am sore, I seriously think I can fit into smaller clothes. Seriously. Like, because it all feels so tight, I must have shrunk.

I fell for ya on the squats and clarinet and girls. I hate squats cause I feel them for the rest of the day. Growing up, my sis played clarinet and the sqeak was about to drive us all mad. And having activity days for 2 years made me very greatful to have only boys. Good Luck, you have my sympathies.

Have your husband massage your butt while your 11 yr. plays the bass clarinet and your 8 year old chats. I'm sure at least one of those will rid you of the butt pain.
