I’m so proud of my sons Aj and Trist. They have a band and two other brothers that are their musical friends now are playing with them. My guys (sons) play awesomely together and my oldest son writes the music. Problem is with one of the guys in the band just learning vocals and he needs some work, which Aj is giving him. Aj is now going to do the back up and plays lead. Tristian used to be on vocals, but drummed at home. Once he and Aj started to get down to putting their musical talents together while playing, it’s like they read one another mind with each beat of the guitar and drum. Kicker is, they played here at home, but because of amps and equipment, and the drum set being large and extended, we don’t have the room right now. They have bedrooms side by side and I can watch them playing their magic in different rooms but so much in sync. It’s an awesome Mom moment, and I’m not one of those “My kid is the best and bla bla bla…” I know what is good and would indeed offer constructive criticism, which I have done when asked. But these kids need the support to go for the dream. I’m all for it!
They have a show coming up soon and if I can get a video from it, this I will post for sure. I’ve been having problems with my camera. But someone will video it. I’m excited to see them play. The good thing is, they are getting paid. Not much at all but it is incentive. They are putting into the bands fund and not touching it. More shows are coming up.
If in the near future, I go all the way deaf, someone remind me it is for the arts and the sons! LOL!
But support local bands!! Really people, they need and deserve it. Our young people are our future. If they are occupied and using talents, not wasting them, I truly believe that on down the line, they will survive and thrive. But they need help.
For the last two days I’ve been cleaning out totes and drawers getting all the family T shirts together, for either mending, keeping, throwing away, and donating. I didn’t realize how many band T shirts alone that we had. Good Lords, I have T shirts from the late 60′s that are so darn cool to remember the concert by, or the time the band first came out. Some of mine are actually promo shirts when bands like Meat Loaf, Seger, Ozzy, and so many more artists, who were young at the time, artists would play at the quarry at a true real life Battle of the Bands. We were so young. One of my money conscious friends told me I should sell the really old ones. I don’t know about that. If someone will groove with them, then more power to them.
With my husband being a motorcycle club member and the president/Nomad of such club, over his years the Harley T shirts from some really great places we visited that were so cool! Running out of space to keep them wasn’t. Cool I mean. There are some great memories that come along with them.
I think I need a bigger house if all of these will be kept, which when it comes down to it and if it’s my husband’s decision, we are going to at least need storage ideas. But this isn’t over yet. I know the Harley Davidson shirts will be on my husband’s mine and my musical and silly sayings from all over the US shirts are going to be on mine. I think I know which eventually will go to donation or bought at the club house.
Still, the T shirts that have logos on various towns, states, cities, and heck, even all the bar and grills and events may take first place to the count of piles. I said if they aren’t 100% cotton, I’m not keeping them. Same with the other T’s. We’ll see if I move out to the farm for awhile over this clean out. 100% more calming of a place right now.
Not only am in a flux because I dislike this month and have cabin fever since it feels like winter will never end, but we get teased by nice weather, and I want to do spring cleaning.
I’m seriously have a block when it comes to making the orders for the shipment of unique and once of a kind masks. I have a little leeway with the deadline, but usually I’m right into a design and work on it until I finish. Right now, it feels like a chore. This we do not want.
Plus I have a feeling I’m going to hire a person who will help me, maybe hire a CEO. I’m beginning to realize that it’s going to be important and I honestly can’t and don’t want to do what the job entails by myself. The way I figure it, I keep creating, and it keeps selling. I need someone to take care of the other side of things.
This is my mid Feb. rant. Next month we’ll see what I can Rant about. The is however a lot I have to Rave about, also. Always the way!
Every now and then a person may need money and I’ve been told there is indeed help with a bad credit loans. Because of some major debt, my sister needed a loan and was turned down by quite a few creditors which left her feeling rather desperate, as it wasn’t herself that had ruined her credit, it was unfortunately her ex husband. Prior to this, she didn’t have great credit, but at least she had a bit.
When I needed two personal loans, I found I was able to finally get one even though I had no credit at all. It was good to know that during the emergency I had, that I was able to get this loan. It helped a great deal and I was able to pay it back in no time at all. It gave me peace of mind, knowing that there are companies that are willing to work with you.
Getting loans may be worrisome at times, but they can be gotten. It definitely has changed my mind about borrowing money when there are companies who give a person a chance.

My youngest son came home from school and announced that he is going to run track this spring, and to be honest I’m thrilled. There are football moms, soccer moms, wrestling moms, but I am a track mom! I love watching my son run and also do the long jump. He’s darn good too, and has medals and pins to prove it. I just wasn’t expecting him to run this year, as he had been rather undecided.
The coach would occasionally ask me if I was going to “let” my son run track this year. I kept telling him and the other coaches the he would run if he wanted to, and didn’t think that it would interfere with his grades. It’s entirely up to him.
At school functions I see the coaches eying my son, who has shot up since last year a good foot or so. It seems like it happened over night, and that kid’s legs are LONG! He’s also very fast, and pulled the track team out a head last year. I think that is why they keep asking me if he’ll be on varsity this year. We’ll see what happens, but I am proud of him and am fortunate that he puts his class work and also grades ahead of sports right now.
