I haven't blogged in a whole week.
The problem with not blogging is that there's a sense of needing to play catch-up, and I often don't know where to begin with that.
So I'll just say that FavoriteBoy had his senior recital, and he was wonderful. I'm biased, but not everyone in the audience who clapped him through four separate bows was as biased as I am, so I think I can safely say his recital was widely considered a success. He played a Bach English Suite, Beethoven's 'Les Adieux' Sonata, and Brahms' Klavierstucke Op. 76. He was wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.
But the sad news is that the recording equipment in the recital hall was apparently not working, and all we have to show for the brilliant recital is a CD with precise minutes and seconds of... silence.
The in-laws have come and gone, and they too enjoyed the recital very much. They said only nice things about the apartment, my painting jobs, and my cooking.
All in all it's been a good week since I last wrote.
And nowadays, FavoriteBoy and I spend evenings relaxing and spending time together... imagine that!
