Today’s song is “What Are You Doing New Years?” Last night the guys all went out and I worked on my collection of goals for 2010. #2 son and I ordered a pizza while it was just the two of us here. Since Wii Fit measures weight in tenths of a pound, I can therefore […]

I’m not sleeping well. I keep waking up, looking at the clock to see that it’s too early to get up, and trying to get back to sleep. Today I gave up and got up early to polish up my business plan and send it to my SCORE counselor. Of course, I was also able […]

I got a new assignment yesterday, and another new one today. I’m about 16% through with the current arts center lessons, but I had hoped to finish them this week. While it is good that I continue to be busy, it looks as though that idea I had of getting all my filing done and […]

Today’s song is “Brightest and Best of the Sons of the Morning” , a really pretty hymn well-suited to singing around the piano. I’m not singing around the piano today. I’m plunging into work, with #2 son snoozing away on the daybed in his bedroom which I took over as an office while he was […]

Good morning! I have to get ready for church, so I will just bring you the song of the day: “Earth Today Rejoices.”

We had a day of sloth yesterday, with books and games and movies and food to keep us amused. Today we go over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house. It is the Feast of Stephen, which you may recall from the carol “Good King Wenceslas.” This song, from the middle of the […]

Merry Christmas! We have a white Christmas for the first time since 1975, so we’re not going anywhere today. I am therefore reporting on Christmas Eve festivities for the the relatives we won’t be seeing today. We were hearing a lot about the terrible blizzard yesterday, so I was in church worrying about #2 daughter […]

Here’s how it looks chez fibermom on the day before Christmas.  I got up at my usual time, but did not start working. Instead, I ran to the grocery before any else got there and bought more wrapping paper and more eggs. I had run out of these two things, so I had no choice. […]

Today’s song is the lilting Irish carol, “Don Oiche Ud ImBeithil.” The words are pretty in English or in Irish, and it’s a calming tune. Which might be what we need right now. I got my contracts signed and found my classroom for next term, and took #2 son out to do some final small […]

“Christmas for Cowboys” is some kind of special genre: Christmas cowboy songs. Lyrics and guitar tab. If you don’t like classical music, or pop music, or folk music, or you want something really different to sing, or perhaps you plan to go to a party tonight and get drunk enough to sing stupid songs, then […]
