Vaca Time

It sure does not feel like a February. The weather is actually rather pleasant and it has not been cold. You know what the best part of this winter has been? The fact that there’s been hardly any snow! I can count on one hand how many times it has snowed and stuck! And by the next day, it is all gone. It has been glorious! I have been able to really take some time and enjoy the outside world this winter. Normally, we are all locked up inside because it is just too cold to go out. I hope that doesn’t mean that this summer will be super hot. 😛

Soon we will be going on a vacation. I really would like to check out guitar center pasadena tx and see their great offers. There’s a lot of places we would like to go!

Long Time

It has been so long since I have last posted! Honestly, I didn’t even realize I still had this site! My Shainakins.com is no longer, but that’s okay! I’ll be creating a new website here shortly. I just have to sit down and actually work it all out. 😀 Maybe I’ll bring back Shainakins! I did have that site for about 10 years! It is sad to see it go.

Anyway, there hasn’t been much that has been going on. I know, it’s been so long and I still have nothing to write about. Just random ramblings.

Jeremy might be going into piano classes. Which is awesome. I know how much he enjoys music and I feel like this would be great for him. I looked into musicians friend catalog to see if I could find anything good for him. There are so many things on that site that I would love to purchase not only for Jeremy, but for myself too!!!

Guitar Time

I spend a lot of time with my boys. Obviously, I’m a stay at home parent. A homemaker if you must. 😛 I’ve tried getting Jeremy into music and wanting to play an instrument and he just was not interested. And my rule is, if they aren’t interested, don’t push them into it. It’s not fair to them and they won’t give their all if they don’t want it.

Anyways, I decided to give it a go with Oliver. So far, he seems very interested in musical instruments. This could of course be just because they make noise and well, he loves making noise. He loves playing his little piano. That is his favorite!

I decided I was going to check out marshall jtm45 to see if it would be a good fit to try showing Oliver and see if guitars will be something he is interested in. I hope so! I think that would be so much fun! And the price isn’t bad either! And if he doesn’t like the guitar, I can hand it over to my sister as a gift! It’s a win win!

Groceries, laundry, cleaning, what more?

Things have been crazy here. I haven’t spent as much time online working on my sites as much as I would like to. The boys have been keeping me super busy. The only reason I am able to be on right now is because it’s not even 8 am yet. Oliver hasn’t requested his breakfast yet. 😛

I won’t be able to spend too much time on here. Even though I would love to. I have a lot to do. Like clean the house. Do the laundry. Change all the sheets and towels. :( Sundays are not my fun days at all. You see what I did there? Not to mention, I also have to finish a painting for a friend. There’s just a lot to do. It might not sound like a lot, but I also have to squeeze all this in in between caring for Oliver.

Let’s just say today is going to be a busy day.

Oh, grocery shopping. I have that to do too. It just never ends.

Musical Christmas

Holy cow! Is September really coming to an end already?! Where has this year gone?! I can’t believe that already we are coming to the end of 2016! Almost October already!!!! It seems like just the other day the new year was just starting. Time really does fly.

Which means that Christmas is also right around the corner. I have started to buy a few things here and there. I really need to just sit down and do it. Spend some time on it and get most of it done. There’s so many people to shop for! Which is why I made a list and who to buy for each month. Haha, yeah, I’m that mom. 😛

I will probably check out american music store to see what I can find there. I know I can usually find some pretty awesome discounts and score on gift buying this time of year.

If you know someone who is into the music scene, I highly recommend checking them out. I am sure you will find something there!
