I am breathing a sigh of relief after the seven nights of chorus practice and concerts. It is exhilarating singing on stage with an entire orchestra....but it is also a relief to be home tonight with nowhere to be. My DVR is totally full. I have some important things to do tonight: Desperate Housewives, Brothers and Sisters, Grey's, The Office, Mad Men.... So many funny things have happened since I last blogged. My mom and I were cracking up repeatedly and discussing how I had to blog about various incidents. But I have already forgotten them. Life is just speeding by. The big news around here is that my dad bought Becca a terrarium when he was in town last week. And it sat around empty for awhile, except for a few doomed earthworms. The other night, late, around midnight, I saw a toad hopping along the sidewalk. I steathily caught it in a butterfly net (also provided by my dad). My mom and I screamed like little girls trying to get that nasty thing into the terrarium. Toads are SO GROSS.
And now...Lila the toad is a resident of our family room. She is pretty much the most boring pet ever....just stays buried all day. But last night, I was looking at her in the dark and she was hopping all over and flinging herself at the glass. I feel a bit guilty about imprisoning her....I am kind of starting to like her. I think I watch her more than Becca does. We went apple and pumpkin picking today. I'm trying my best to slow down and enjoy this. Every bit of it.
