This weekend Milla had a concert in Newburg. I realized after getting down there that I was imagining McMinnville when I was thinking of the city and deciding what to bring with me while I waited around three hours for her performance. Unfortunately, Newburg is a lot smaller than McMinnville. There was nothing to do. I regretted having no book or work or computer with me. Isabel slept a lot of the time, so I just sat in the classroom where Milla’s stuff was while she was in the green room until her performance. Boring. The funny thing is that when I arrived home I was so tired. I don’t know why driving a while and then doing nothing for several hours is so exhausting, but it is. I wish I would have had more time this weekend to accomplish something productive (like writing, or sewing, or cleaning the house). Ah well. It’s the end of the weekend and I need to go to bed.
As an aside, Milla’s playing and the symphony were both lovely. She played well and has definitely improved playing with this group. She also has a new teacher who has been very good for her. We are looking forward to the knowledge and skills she will gain working with this new instructor.
