Since we've been stuck inside so much, it's been a bit of a struggle to keep the kids entertained. I thought I had struck gold when I had the idea to turn an old cardboard box into a playhouse. The fun didn't last too long though because the asshole stray cat claimed it as his own and would cut anyone who came near it. Oh well, things like this regularly happen when the animals so heavily outnumber the people. There are no rules anymore.
The boy has been nagging us to get him a guitar. We kept telling him that we were "working on it" which loosely translates to "We are stringing you along until this phase passes, as we all know it inevitably will. We never plan on buying you a guitar." Well the boy got lucky because our wonderful friend Max gave him one.
The boy found some videos of guitar lessons online. Progress is moving slowly, especially because he decided to just skip over all the "boring stuff." I think he thought he would just magically morph into a rock star once he dyed his hair green and picked up a guitar. Another life lesson learned. At least it didn't cost me anything.
Friday night my mom and I went to see The String Kings. They included a few R.E.M songs, which of course I loved since I'm in such an R.E.M mood lately.
Sadly, they could not be convinced to do 'Mandy' by Barry Manilow, but Danny did sing a couple verses so I'm holding out hope for next time.
Well, that brings another update to a close. But before I go I want to post this picture from last night of my mom and Super Dave:
Super Dave is always fun!
