I can not say what an amazing weekend I had at the National Trumpet Competition. I heard so much great trumpet playing, got to see some really good friends, got to meet some new people, and just had a great time personally and professionally!
All that being said, it’s good to be home! Yesterday, I had a 6 AM flight. I caught up on some Breaking Bad and Eastbound and Down. I love those shows. I got back and got all of my things pretty quickly and was around my house a 9 AM. I stopped off at Subway for breakfast, because I had an idea! This put me at the gym for a 9:30 class. VertMMAx with Kristen was great as always, then the fun began.
I got home (mind you, for the first time since Wednesday) and saw the chihuahua next door, Buck, standing outside. Buck is a fantastic dog and never gets out. I also knew the neighbors were at church, so I tried to get Buck. I petted him for a minute and then tried to scoop him up. Bad idea. Buck bit me and ran down the street. He turned right and ran down the main road. He turned right and ran around the back of the houses. Mind you, I have been up since 3 something eastern, been on a 4 hour flight, drove 45 minutes to get home and then worked out for an hour. Sprinting was not in my plans for the day. After I lost sight of him, I drove around for a while. I then checked inside, and somehow, Buck got back in and was laying in his crate with his sister Annabelle. All’s well that ends well, right?
I also got to go back to my Genghis store. There really is no place like home! The food was, of course, great. I think I have found my sauce of choice. The 3G/chili garlic mix really can not be beat! Try it out next time…
