Uke uke uke

Because I'm a total slacker and still haven't taken more pictures of my darling children, here is a video of me playing ukulele. I recently had a fire lit under my ukulele-playing bum because a longtime friend asked me to play and sing in his wedding. No pressure. I started taking lessons last Saturday and had a bit of a breakthrough this week with strumming and playing at the same time.

In other news, my adorable children are still adorable. We met up with a friend at a mall with a play area today. It was nice. The kids were really good. They were rewarded at the end of the day with a carousel ride. Gummy Bear named his horse "Seven Silver" and Cheeky Monkey's "Black Tail." You guess why. Then we came home, where they mercifully took a nap, got up and then tormented each other while I made dinner. Good times. Tomorrow we're off to a friend's birthday party if we don't get crazy lots of snow. And Sunday, Ry comes home! Hurrah! Because being a single parent kind of sucks. And I miss him.

That was so good! You sounded great. Guess the lessons are going well?

Thanks! I've only had one lesson, so I'm not sure I can credit that. I did spend many many hours this week on one song. Once I could play that one with a strum pattern other than down-up, I could play lots. I had to stop thinking about the strumming before it all clicked. And then, eureka! All of a sudden I could sing and play.
