Okay, so those are the lyrics from Oklahoma, of course, but if you think that is my life, then think again! :)
Just kidding, I don't mean to sound so negative. BUT, I do have a nice little anecdote for you...
Last night I was in orchestra rehearsal and about thirty minutes into it I could see that we were really rehearsing and that I wouldn't have time to do some homework like I thought I would. So, I reached into my purse to grab my phone to text Marcus and see if he would want to meet up at Starbucks after orchestra so I could do some homework. Well, good thing I grabbed my phone, because what I saw on my screen was: FIVE missed calls, THREE voicemails, and TWO text messages all from Marcus. The texts just said "Call me." and "Please call." Oui vey. So of course I start to get paranoid that either someone died or our apartment was on fire or something crazy like that. I texted him quickly saying "Can't call." --obviously, since I was in rehearsal. So, at one point during Brahms I had ten measures of rest so I quickly hunched over behind my stand and listened to my voicemail....
Turns out...we blew a fuse! No one died and nothing was on fire. Good grief. Such a big deal about something so small. The message said that we blew a fuse in our apartment and that the maintenance guy can't get there till the morning. Of course Marcus tried flipping all of the breakers, etc., but nothing would get things up and running again. The message also said that since nothing was working, he was leaving. So, I texted him my original plan, "Meet at 'bux?" He texts back, "I'm at Red Star"....ahh...suddenly it ALL comes together. Why would Marcus choose Red Star Tavern over Starbucks for a place to spend his evening???? Oh yes, THE WHITE SOX GAME WAS ON. And with the power out- he needed to watch it somewhere! Haha, that made me laugh. So, after orchestra he walked across the parking lot from Red Star to Starbucks and met me there. Of course I asked him why he made such a big deal about the power being out, and really, what in the world did he expect ME to do about it from orchestra??? His response?
"I just wanted to know if I could get a beer."
Oui vey. Gotta love him. :)
So, in conclusion, we took our showers and got ready this morning by candlelight which happens to be one of my recurring nightmares. For real- I often have a bad dream that the power is out and that my alarm doesn't work (which did happen- my phone didn't wake me up like I thought I had set it to do) and then I have to get ready in the dark. My bad dream really happened! But then, we got to go to Panera for breakfast and now here I am at school...obviously with nothing better to do. :) Hopefully the power gets fixed soon enough before the food/milk in the fridge goes bad...
Hope you have a great day...the kids are coming in!
