It's going to be one busy week for me and the rest of the upcoming months... I decided to take some photography classes and it starts this Wednesday. And I'm also seeing a Chiropractor for my sore back.
After school activities for my kids starts this week too. Tuesday's it's skating time for Patricia. Wednesday is swimming day for Patrick and Thursday is swimming and piano for Patricia. Patrick is trying out for their school's volleyball team, I hope he makes it and I hope it won't be in any conflict with our current activities.
I have a friend whose niece is celebrating her 18th birthday this month. They were looking for a photographer and I volunteered. They were here last night to see samples of my pictures. I'm not a pro, they know that. But in order to save, they may have to settle for an amateur like me. I know that my pictures still needs improvements, that's why I'm taking classes, but I'm quite happy with them. And I know that a few of my friends are happy too when I made them a photo book of our summer activities. I've done 5 photo books already [2 birthdays and 3 outings], all for friends. And I've been picking pictures of my kids so that I can make one for them.
Bad news -- Julian died. He just stopped swimming one day. He has been with us for 255 days only. My daughter wanted me to take him to the pet store to be looked at or the vet. She's really sad when she had to flush him down the toilet. Anyway, I ask her if she wanted another fish, but she said no, she wanted a cat or a dog this time. I don't think so!
I also decided to go back to volunteering at my kids' school. If you haven't read it, here's my first experience as a volunteer.
It may seem that I have tons of time on my hand since I only work part-time, but I honestly don't know where time goes.
"Life is short, break the rules, forgive sooner,
love with true love, laugh without control and always keep smiling.
Maybe life is not the party that we were expecting,
but in the mean time, we're here and we can still dance....."
