Believe me, I understand how vomitous it is to read yet another blog post by someone saying how busy they are.
But I am seriously, no-holds-barred, barely-can-find-time-to-take-a-shower, ready-to-run-screaming-down-the-street kind of busy right now.
So please forgive me for my bloggy neglect.
And to ADD to the busyness I am seriously thinking of taking up the harmonica. I have no idea why. I just want to. My dad played a little, and maybe I’m just having missing-my-daddy issues. But the harmonica looks like so much dang fun to play.
On the downside, I’ve never really been able to get proficient in playing any other instrument. Five years of piano lessons gave me the ability to plunk through a few elementary-age songs fairly well. That is the height of my expertise.
To make it even worse, I have several family members who can pick up any musical instrument and make it bend to their will immediately.
Stupid gene selection!!
We have a neighbor who sits out on her back deck every night and plays the Native American flute. Won’t it be cool when I just chime in with my harmonica out of the blue one evening???!!! It’s almost worth it to learn just for that moment alone.
But the most positive side effect of all? My boys will see that you are NEVER too old to let your interests lead you toward learning. Golly, I love unschooling!!
