I have always been interested in music, as a child - I tool piano lessons. However, music seemed NOT interested in me though. While I enjoy singing, I could not carry a tune. While I love listening to musical instruments, learning them didn't feel natural to me. I guess, while watching American Idol this year and seeing 16 year old Filipino-Mexican Jessica Sanchez, my frustrations are hightened. She's so young but she can belt out a Whitney classic without breaking a sweat. She moves in the stage like a pro!
My 2-year old who watches the show with me shows promise unlike me. He loves to sing - so that's a great sign that he's musically inclined. I am thinking that when the time comes I might enroll him in singing lessons, drum lessons, guitar or whatever he might be interested in. I would love to watch him grow up to be a performer. fIf so, it is going to be the first in the family. Speaking of instruments, I've came across these baritone horns for sale! This site is interesting, they sell band and orchestra instruments. Who knows? Maybe in 5 years I might need to check back. It is good to know where I can find these things as early as now.

Last Friday, Joshua had his Pretend Day which was the culminating activity for the preschool kids.
Last year he wanted to be a paleontologist and now a soldier! =) Amazing how different his interests are in a span of 1 year.
DrawSomething App is super addictive!
I've been playing it the whole day today and I can't seem to stop. Ack. Before, I was hooked to Plants Vs. Zombies then Angry Birds, Temple Run now - this.

I've been having headaches for the past couple of weeks and I know what's causing it. My impacted lower wisdom teeth.
I asked my friend who just had his extracted and this is how our conversation went.
Me: From a scale of 1-10, how painful was it?
Friend: I kid, I kid, it's only 9.5
Me: Oh. Great.
This right here on the left of your screen is my lower left wisdom tooth, scaheduled for extraction on March 16. I am freaking out with the thought because I know it is going to be agonizing and bloody. Imagine having your gums sliced, your tooth drilled and broken into 4 pieces and taken out? All that while you are awake, trying to keep your mouth wide open and stopping yourself from swallowing all the blood gushing out. Not a pleasant thought right? Sorry. Why did you fail me tooth? I guess it just came out like that because my jaw did not have enough space for my teeth. Which is weird really - why do we have wisdom teeth in the first place?
Then! As if that's not enough, one month later, you have to do it all over again for this baby right here on the right. The dentist said it would be a much easier procedure compared to the first one since it is already partially out and it is not too deep down to get. I was tempted to just leave them there and pretend they don't exist however, the persistent headache and the fact that my teeth are crowding in the front got the best of me. The procedure has to be done and I have to power through the pain of it all.

Here in MA we got a little snow...third storm this winter! Nothing like this huge pile, which was what last winter was like. And...here we go!
1. When I heard ABOUT THE VIOLENCE THAT HAPPENED IN OHIO, IT SADDENS ME TO THINK HOW KIDS/TEENAGERS NOWADAYS HAVE BECOME SO VIOLENT.
2. THESE ISSUES makes me want TO BRING MY 2 BOYS UNDERGROUND (ALA BLAST FROM THE PAST).
3. Get A CLUE!
4. THE BEACH is where I WISH TO BE IN RIGHT NOW.
5. Hands RECEIVE A LOT OF ABUSE DAILY - THAT'S WHY I MAKE IT A POINT TO MOISTURIZE IT AND HAVE REGULAR MANICURE'S TO KEEP IT LOOKING PRETTY.
6. I NEVER WANTED to put anybody down.
