So things are a bit crazy around here these days. We went to Carroll yesterday for Emily's visitation. We went back to Carroll today to go to her funeral. We didn't spend the night at my folks' house because Heidi had to work this morning and we didn't want Anna to miss any more school than she had to. Tomorrow, we're driving to Cedar Rapids to see Heidi's grandfather who is having quadruple bypass surgery later this week. When it rains around here, it pours. But we're persevering well even though I am blitzed.
Hard Candy leaked over the weekend and I have listened to the whole thing. I am breathing a huge sigh of relief because it's much better than I was anticipating. Don't let "4 Minutes" fool you. It's not indicative of the rest of the record. Definitely R&B/hip-hop inspired, but still a pop record. There was much rejoicing. I'm sure I'll have more to say about this later. Shocker!!
My Black CD, Wonderful Life, came today from Amazon Sellers! YAY! I will have to load that on my iPod before too much longer here.
I have lost my car keys but good somewhere in the house. I truly am running out of places for them to be. This is very disturbing.
I found this game at my folks' house today. Watching Return of the Jedi last week made me think of it. I can't believe they still had it.
It is actually worth quite a bit of money as it was not produced for very long, but sadly mine is not in great shape as is the case with most of my childhood toys. They just were played with too much!
And finally, I actually wore a tie today. Here's photographic evidence.
Look now, because it might be the last time until the next funeral. Or, as Heidi more optimistically pointed out, the next wedding.
