Web Curator

Well, I am coming out of my funk and feeling better! Really, the main thing that I am anxious about is that I have overscheduled myself this month! 5 concerts, one big antique trip, and then 4 days out of town at an art class. Don't get me wrong, all of it is totally fun, I am just one of those people that needs lots of downtime and when I don't get it I get panicky! This week Mike and I will go see The Polyphonic Spree (again! we just saw them in September, it was so good we have to go again!) and then the next night Jane, my brother, Todd, and I are going to see Van Halen!!! I am so excited about this concert! Todd and I used to listen to Van Halen all the time! Then on Sunday I have a double duty. During the day we are going back to Bloomington, IL for the Third Sunday Antique Market (me, my Mom, my friend Lorie, Jane, her Mom, and Trish...and maybe even Karen and Jody). I am hoping we can have a tailgate party at lunchtime with a show and tell! and then Sunday night Mike and I are going to see Bruce Springsteen!!!!

Next week Jane, Kim, Julie, and Beth and I are going to Valley Ridge in Wisconsin. We are taking a class with the famous Lynne Perrella!!!!!!! Dream come true!! Am I ready? NO!! Have I had almost a year to prepare for this? Yes!!! What a lame-O!!! Luckily, I took next Monday off from work so I can gather all the items we need for class. I have been collecting ephemera for year for this class. Is it in one place, organized, and ready to go? I think you know the answer!!!!

The picture above is courtesy of the world wide web. The colors here have not changed yet. Hopefully in the next several weeks there will be lots of beautiful leaves. Fall is my favorite season of all!!!!

yeh!! Laura is back in blogland. I too can get overwhelmed with just the thought of too much to do. I swear I am my own worst stressor. It is not the event, it is all the worry that goes with it. And who knew I worried??

Beth said...

I can't wait to see you !!!!

Thanks Laura! I've read a book you must read. It's called Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen. I absolutely loved that book. I wish I would have thought to put it in your package which you should have today for sure. I'd have to look to see what day last week I sent it, but it was at least the middle of the week.
I've got to think about my favorite artist. Hmmm.
