I have to tell you I am totally addicted to the show American Idol. Tonights 90 minute show just blew me away. But out of the male vocalists tonight, my favorite is David. That young man has the voice of a star. He is polite, smiles all the time, and is just so in love with singing. I voted for him. Even if he isn't voted the next American Idol, I believe he will go far in his singing career. Now when it is the girls turn to perform I will be voting again. I forget her name, but she is the nurse with the white in her hair. Whoa, can she sing. She puts so much energy into each of her performances, and you can tell she is having fun with it.
Speaking of music, our Rebecca had her first musical class today. My child is learning to play the violin. She is fasinated with it. Right now we are using one from the school, but I would so love to get her one of her own, so she can practice over the summer, and not lose interest. Ever since she was 2yrs old she has loved music. She'd get out my pots and pans and spoons and drum. She pretended she was playing an invisible guitar, and now she has her own guitar.
Ok, so I am in her class today, while she was upstairs in music class and it comes over the speaker, that the school is in lockdown. My God my heart just about stopped. Here I was locked in the classroom with a bunch of kids and the teacher, and my child isn't in the room with me. I was terrified. I wanted my baby by my side. But 5 minutes later the lockdown was lifted. We then got the kids coats and bookbags and took them outside to their parents. I waited almost 10 minutes for my child to come outside. When I saw her I grabbed her up and gave her the biggest hug ever. She told me, Mommy I was scared. I thought I wasn't going to see you for a long time. My heart sank and I almost cried, because she had tears in her eyes. I can promise you this. She will not be attending that school come September. There's only a few months of school left, and I can deal with that, but First Grade and up, no fricken way is she going there for those grades.
Moving is a number one priority for us now. Out of this city is a must. Philadelphia use to be a nice place, but now it is just horrible. You can't even sit on yourporch in fear of stray bullets or some other kind of trouble. Pathetic isn't it? Every where you look there is grafitti, trash, broken down cars, smashed windows, little drug bags on the ground. It is disgusting. Oh yea, and I found out today that the school Rebecca goes to was voted one of the worst schools in Philadelphia. There were 70 schools voted on and hers was one of the first 30.
Well, it is 10:30pm and I am tired. My legs are bothering me really bad tonight. Just aching all over, like a giant charlie horse. Only thing to do for that is take my 2 Arthritis Tylenol and get under my warm blankets and stretch out my legs. It's the only thing that helps. I hope the tylenol kicks in quickly.
UGHHHHHHH, I just heard the "S" word on the news. They said friday gonna be a nasty day. Snow, snow, snow, is spring here? I'm sick of cold winter weather. I'm sick of it being chilly in my apartment. Joe is heavy and he doesn't get cold so easy so he keeps the heater set on 65 to 66 during the day and 63 at night. My radiators have never gotten really hot, just warm.
Oh well, enough depressing things said already. Keep warm for those in the cold area's and keep cool for those in warmer areas.
Love you all.......................CINDY
