You had to be a big shot didn't ya?
A couple more weeks until Billy Joel!! I am so stinkin' excited.

I can not believe my husband got tickets. Its probably going to rank right up there in shows for me. I think one of the best we ever saw was Aerosmith, believe it or not. We had seats right on the side of the stage probably less than ten feet from the stage. That was truly awesome.

I think the best show was when we saw Everclear in a small club. We were maybe 5 people back from the stage and everyone was so into the music. Then at the end of the first set they threw their drumsticks and guitar picks into the audience and a pick hit my eyebrow. A bunch of people scrambled around me to find it but none of us did. Then at the end of the show as we were ready to leave I found it on the floor under my foot. That made the show for me.

They had a great opening band too. They were called Cowboy Mouth. I've been hoping they'd get big because they were pretty terrific.

The Fit New Me
I've discovered a joy in fitness again. We joined a YMCA recently to do some swim classes for the boys. I checked out the childcare room a few times when we were there and thought, you know what, I'm just going to try this and see how it goes.

Its been over a week now that I've been trying to go every morning that Aiden is at school. So far I only missed one day because of an appointment. But I feel great. Its amazing how good exercise makes you feel. Its always done that for me. I don't know why I get so resistant to it.

Owen is doing pretty good with the seperation. The first day he lasted 30 minutes before they came to get me because he was upset, then 40 minutes, then 45 minutes. Monday he only lasted 20 minutes which was a bummer but today he lasted 40. They said he did really well today. No tears shed. I saw that his favorite caregiver was there today and she gave him some saltines which basically wraps him around your finger. He LOVES crackers.

I hope I can keep up this routine. I've never felt better.
