Yep, that's what I said. Still don't half believe it myself, and I keep having to remind my brain and my heart that this is what's happening......but I'm going back to college next fall, to study music therapy. So everyone cheer, ok, because you won't have to hear my whining about the decision-making process anymore! And there was much rejoicing!!!!!!!!!!!
I thought about something earlier this morning: I've been wanting to be a Band director since I was in the 7th grade, which means basically 25 years. (!) Never any questioning it, never any thought of doing anything else once I decided that. But so many things in my adult life (at least the last 8-10 years) have gone entirely differently than I ever would have expected, so why should this be any different?
In more mundane news........DH is taking Mr. Literal to an NBA basketball game tonight. The NBA, and basketball in general, has become his newest obsession over the last few months. Imagine knowing that the one thing which will calm your child after a meltdown is turning on SportsCenter to watch NBA highlights. So, DH had the idea that he could take Mr. L to see the Charlotte Bobcats--our nearest team--if they had a home game this week, during Spring Break. And they do, against the 76ers. So they're headed out tonight for a special bonding time together, and Energizer is in the Upstate with grandparents. Me? I'm still in school---last day before MY break is tomorrow. The house is soooooo quiet. But hey, I slept until 7 am, then pushed snooze a time or two before getting up and taking a leisurely shower. Can't remember the last time I've done that. They'll all be home tomorrow by the time I get home from school, and then we've got until Sunday to all be on break together. The big question now is: What will I do next week when I'm on break and they're back in school? I'm thinking some major house cleaning/reorganizing/decluttering is in order. Sounds like tons of fun, huh?
