I did not want to get out of bed this morning to drive Lily to school… at all. It has taken a long time but I finally have her well trained for school mornings. Her alarm goes off at 6:20 am but mine doesn’t go off until 6:30 am. In the 10 minutes before I get up she gets herself dressed, combs her hair, brushes her teeth, etc. She has also gotten pretty good about making herself breakfast. She usually eats a bowl of cereal or pops something in the toaster. She use to be a big fan of eating breakfast at school but a few months ago she told me she doesn’t like the food anymore.
So as usual I got up, put on shorts and a t-shirt, and not to long later it was time to go. Traffic sucks on the way to school but on the way back it’s not to bad. I am so ready for next school year when she will be enrolled in the school down the street from our house.
I was listening to Y100 on my way home and as I was about to exit they asked for a caller to play a contest named Radio Scattergories to win tickets to see The Zac Brown Band at the AT&T Center in April. It has been years since I even tried to call a radio station but something in my head told me to call. I dialed 210-470-5299 expecting a busy signal and I was truly shocked when the guy answered and said “Y100!”. I told them I wanted to play the radio game. He put me on hold for a little bit and I pulled over in the first parking lot that I could find. He came back on and asked me what letter I wanted to use. I told him R but then they told me someone did that yesterday… so then I said S. This was gonna be a piece of cake!
I spent a total of 5 minutes on the phone with them and I won the tickets. After I won I was trying to hurry them off the phone so that I would be able to record the conversation with my phone. Success! Click here and you can hear me on the radio (please ignore the socks and flip flops… if only I had planned better). I do not know how to edit videos or I would have put this picture as the image… I mean this is how I felt!
If you don’t listen to The Zac Brown Band you should.
Here are my favorite songs by them. Simply click on the title and the videos will pop up.
