Argh! And my first Community Band Concert

After sleeping in this morning, I got up and had a nice shower and then went into Robert’s room.  I found him "working" in his "office" he has under his bed.  LOL  He got dressed and he asked if he could play Mario Kart after breakfast, and I said he could.  I tried to do my computer stuff, but found out we had no internet.  I tried a few things, but had to wait til Ryan got up.  He did some stuff.  We called Cox Communications and they did tests and had us do stuff and we determined that the modem was working fine.  So Ryan called tech support for the router and found out that our warranty had expired and they couldn’t help us.  I kind of say BS to that, but whatever.  We weren’t about to pay them money to try and figure out what was wrong with the modem.  I got on "text" support with my brother and my friend SH.  Rick came to the conclusion that our router was probably dead.  So we went to Best Buy to look at new ones, and we talked to the Geek Squad guy that took care of Ryan’s computer and he came to the same conclusion that it had died.  So we bought a new one, a different brand.  Then since we were at the mall, we thought we’d eat dinner at A & W.  But when we got to the food court, A&W is GONE.  I asked a Mall Security guy and he said it closed about 2 weeks ago.  The owner is from Phoenix and he was losing money here with it.  I don’t blame him.  The guy that owns the mall has such high rent, lots of the businesses in the mall are closing or moving elsewhere.  So Ryan had Taco Bell and Robert and I had Subway.  Then we came home and I got changed for my concert and Ryan started working on getting the new router set up.  I had my first concert with the Sierra Vista Community Band tonight.  We only played 4 tunes at the start of the second half of the Bisbee Community Chorus concert, but it was very well-received.  When I got home from the concert, I got attacked by a 5-year-old who was very happy to see his Mommy!  Then he went right back to bed, but he didn’t turn his light off.  The next thing I heard was talking coming from his room.  He was reading Hop on Pop by Dr. Seuss.  All by himself!!!  And he did very well with it!  Ryan was still working on the router, so I stitched for a while more.  But he finally got it working and now I’m back online.  I’ve probably got a million e-mails to go through.  LOL.  Ok, so probably not a million.  But a lot.
