this is huge. I'm really proud of him.
so if you know anyone in the area who is limping through "Stairway" and wants to take guitar lessons, send 'em our way. hammer-ons, pull-offs, that wheedlywheedlywheedly stuff, Smoke on the Water, Advanced Spandex - he's your guy. c'mon down!
it's cool because a) it's something he knows really well, rock guitar, and b) he is totally NOT a 9-5 tie guy and this is a good way for him to make some money and stay sane (more or less), and c) he will have a delightfully flexible schedule which will be great for when the baby comes in february.
so rock on, my husband. I am really proud of you and bragging to the whole blogosphere. (hope that doesn't jinx it...)
The job sounds marvelous! I'd go if I lived closer, as I have a lovely Fender who's mocking me on a daily basis.
Really? Baby? (trying to turn off the Southern Housewife gush)
we're kind of freaked out by it all.
we found out the day before his BIG INTERVIEW. he kept his shit together surprisingly well.
we told his grandmother over the holiday - she said "well, I'm not surprised...huh, looks like rain..."
I was a little hurt, until I remembered she'd had thirteen children of her own.
tell me about your instrument, rootie!
Coma-rousing songs! Good luck!
And - whoa. A baby? Shows how much (or little, rather) I've been keeping up with my reading. Damn girl! Congrats to both of you!!
found out the day before the interview.
we were a little dizzy and off kilter and terrified for a while. but we cool now.
And AP, glad to see you're posting here and there. Does this mean, you will NOT stop blogging? (fingers crossed that you're here to stay!)
WHOA! Missed that one!
WHOA!!! Really? OH BOY, wheeeee, congratulations!
Wanna here more and everything as time passes!
yeah yeah, first time for everything... ;)
so Kim, when ya coming down with your guitar? you can make some noise in my living room any time.
My Fender? A narrow-necked 6 string acoustic guitar given to me when I sighed one day and said "gee I wish I could play the guitar" Proof that I really should be more careful what I say around my husband. My son has a vintage Fender bass, sometimes we play together and make horrible 'music'.
it's not horrible music - it's a joyful noise. it's covered in the bible. so please, carry on.
so please, rock on. you don't have to be "good". you have to be TRUE.
