Hello! I took a little break from here as I was having trouble uploading pictures for some blogs. I think it was a blogger error. Anyway, we got a little over 5 inches of snow the other day/night and this was the first bigger snow storm of the season so far!

Well, if any of you were fans of Full House and John Stamos, you will know what I'm talking about here! :) I loved Full house and still do. Those were the days when TV was actually worth watching! I can't stand most shows that are on TV today. There are a few good ones, but nope nothing like it was back in the 80's, 90's and early 2000's!

There is a big difference in being realistic and negative. Being negative about everything in life and never having anything positive to say is not a way of living. Wake up each morning and find joy in living each day because tomorrow is never promised. Enjoy life and be thankful you're alive! :)

When I found out that they were coming here I must admit, I started to cry. Gonna be a freakin' awesome time!!! All I have to do is book the train and the hotel and then I am set. :) I will be taking a load of pictures at this show. I plan to be right in front row and center so I can be in front of Matt and close to Brad during 3DG ;D. I'm glad the train drops off about three blocks from the venue! Also there is a hotel just down the street. How awesome is that? :)

So, I am seeing Stardog Champion in September. Very excited. Not only am I seeing some of my favorite musicians up close & personal again, but it will be an early birthday show for me. :) I sent Nick a message to let him know I was coming. :) Here is a video from their first show as Stardog Champion and their first song performed ever. Enjoy!

Haha. I had to make this into a quote image. Seriously thinking about having a shirt made out of this too, so I can wear it around and hopefully some of the 40's and up group of guys will get the drift that I have no interest in them. :P I have this one guy who is a customer at work (as you probably seen in a past post I wrote.) who seems to 'like' me and he must be at least in his 40's. Anyway, I treat all my customers especially my regulars who I've seen for the last going on 6 years, special. Anyway, his route changed back to coming through Champaign, so I have been seeing him more again lately, but thankfully I have been busy most of the time so all he could do was wave at me from afar. Although, yesterday, he was still there when I got off work, and started talking to me and asking me when we're going to go out and do something fun, my response was; you and I probably see fun as two different things. I've already told the guy in general that I'm not in looking to date anyone. He is definitely not my type and I have no interest in him like that. Anyway, I am beginning to feel that the more I know about this guy, the more I feel like he has ulterior motives. I have had this happen before, a few guys that were supposed to be friends and knew that is all I wanted to be with them were fine with it, then a few weeks later they started to push themselves on me for more and one was even trying to buy my love by having ulterior motives, paying for when ever we'd go out to eat or to a movie even when I told him numerous times that I want to pay my way and do not want him to pay for my dinner or movie. I don't mind if I am in relationship with someone if they offer to pay and we're out on a date, but otherwise, it's just weird for me. Anyway, I've smartened up a lot when it comes to people over the years. Because I know how most can be. Most are not out there to be good and true to people and are just out for themselves, so yes I am on guard when it comes to letting people into my life easily anymore. So if he becomes pushy I will not stand for it at all.

Organization is fun. I've had this CD rack on the left for at least 4 years and my CD collection wayyyy out grew it a long time ago. I've had to put my remaining CD's (plus CD's I've bought since then!)that would not fit on this shelf anymore in a box about a year ago. So yesterday I went out to a huge parking lot sale and found this awesome black shelf ( almost like the one I found last weekend for my DVD's!) So I put the CD's that were on the rack on it and put some regular DVD's that I had no room for on my other shelf & put some concert DVD's on the bottom shelf as well as some music bios/memoirs. Just need to find two more of these shelves and also find a larger bookcase with at least 3 - 5 shelves to organize my books, then I think I will be pretty well set! :)

I picked up this poster of Kurt Cobain today at a garage sale for $1.00. They had several other rock posters for $1.00, too, that I did buy like Metallica and Kiss. But this one really struck me to take a picture of it as it is an awesome photograph. The raw black and white and the pose Cobain did is just excellent.

They never fail to amaze me. Their set was awesome. :)Lots of energy as usual. Three Days Grace!!! It was definitely one of the best Three Days Grace shows I've seen.
