Double Life

Sorry I have been remiss in blogging the past few days, I’ve been crazy busy with my other job. I’m sure that most of you don’t know that I lead a double life.  By day, needlepoint shop owner. . . bu night, piano teacher. I have been teaching piano for 13 years and just can’t seem to give it up, despite all of my new responsibilities.  I fly out of the shop at 3 o’clock on the dot everyday, race to pick up my 5 year old at school, and try to not get stuck behind the school bus so I can beat my students to my house.  I will admit, I am very much looking forward to summer vacation and only working one job.

So, Thursday night was the piano recital. I teach 18 students every week.  Unfortunately, not everyone could make it.  The  highlight of the night (since I am his proud mommy), was my son Trip’s first performance.  He got it into his head a few months ago that he was going to be in the recital and was not budging about it.  Be sure to click on the link below.  This is too cute!

By the way, Trip is his nickname.  He’s really Raymond the third.  Who could deal with that confusion?


Back to stitching.  Oh, I wish!  Blogging, bills, cleaning, writing stitch guides. . . there’s not enough hours in the day!  Now maybe I’ll start making needlepoint videos.  I’m always cooking up something!

    How cute. I can remember my daughter Kelsey’s first piano recital and then piano practice would become, and I quote, “the bane of my existence”. Now she can’t walk through the living room without stopping to play something. Thank you for sharing and bringing back so many memories. Do you know how many musical christmas ornaments I have stitched over the years.
