December 7th...a date "which will live in infamy".
I'm getting a jump start on my New Year's resolutions. I'm going to be writing a lot more on this 'blog. Whether or not I'll have anything noteworthy to write remains to be seen.
So...it's been several months; what's up?
I joined the Ward Choir. Then I joined the Stake Choir. It's Xmas time! Time to get my Cantata on!
We perform the night of the 11th. Should be a good program. It's not actually a Cantata as such...that's just what we've been calling it these past few years. Our Choir Mistress, sister Ashton, has selected an interesting and even challenging repertoire. I do hope my voice will be fully recovered by then, because I've been sick with a chest cold these past two weeks.
Our Ward Choir will also be performing, although I'm not sure exactly when. I've also been invited into a quartet to sing "With Wondering Awe". I'm supposed to be learning the Tenor part for it. With my voice in its present condition, this has been a little difficult.
In other news, Mom and Dad are not coming to BC for Xmas. I was really hoping my kids would get some "bonding time" with their Sanderson Grandparents. They have elected to stay home in Cardston to be near Karen and her kids; who may be needing a little extra support this year as Chad's health issues have come to a head of sorts and it's causing problems for Karen and their kids.
I should still be able to see my kids and get some good "Daddy" times in. I'm spoiling those two rotten, and it's showing in my finances. Of course, if I weren't spending my largesse (such as it is) on my kids, I'd probably just spend it on myself.
Speaking of which; I've decided to sell Max come the spring. The VW Passat is a fun car to drive, but this particular example is just plain annoying. Cosmetically and Mechanically the car is fine. Electrically, however, it has revealed numerous bugs and glitches that mean I will need to spend some cash and time getting the car up to par. I'm also selling the little Golf - still not dead yet - and Lord knows what I'll be driving next. I'm even starting to get nostalgic about that Caravan! Despite its age, it was a solid, mechanically reliable and easily-maintained vehicle.
I am slowly - oh so slowly - taking care of the numerous loose ends still left after the divorce. Selling off items of property I don't need, banking, bonds, taxes, etc. I really hate dealing with ANY sort of bureaucracy. I should have everything wrapped up by the time Kath and Grant's lease on this place expires at the beginning of April. No idea what they/we are going to do/move into next. We'll see what happens.
