As you know, my 11 year old friend is visiting. And am I EXHAUSTED. I am not used to the high energy and all the entertaining that go into an 11 year old. My daughter pretty much wants me to leave her alone, so I've gotten used to that and now I am the main form of entertainment for the kid that's here, which is fine as she's fun, but I've got to take a nap or I can't keep up.
My daughter's bf got Sing Star 80's and it's like Kareoke, but it has the actually music video for the song as well as the original song with lyrics. (I need the lyrics to help me). And it has the words on it like Kareoke.
Well Tay and I sang for 2 hours on Sat. We had a BLAST and to the amazement of both me and my family, I didn't suck. I'm not ready for American Idol, but I apparantly sing better than I thought. I got "lead singer" on Tempted by Squeeze. And Tay does Material Girl really well.
We had such a good time and I was horse from singing by the end.
I've already told her mother to get her this for her birthday in Feb. She has loved it. (me too. ha, my inner frustrated singer has found a new outlet. )
Today we are headed to the "dark corner". The area of the county near the NC border and where the mountains start. There is a covered bridge (the last in SC) and an old stone bridge built in 1820 that is said to be haunted. We will also visit a state park and picnic. Supposed to be sunny and 60 here today before we get plunged in the freezer on Wed.
There are also a couple country type general stores (the 11 year old has NOT done enough shopping. ) I want to visit (boiled peanuts!!!).
I don't know if I'll be up at midnight tonight.
I do know that I plan to sleep from Thur until Sun after I put her on the plane back home this week.
