Busy Week

This week was really busy for me.  It seemed like we had something to do every day this week. 
Sunday night Mark and I went to see Melissa Ethridge with some friends of ours.  She was awesome.  This was the 2nd time that I have seen her in concert.  The first time was right before she was diagnoised with breast cancer.  She came out with the awakening album after that.  That album is great.  I still love Lucky the most though.  Her concert was really cool.  She made the concert into a little story of her life and the songs she sang were about each stage in her life.  Funny I never realized that alot of her songs were so real to her life.
Wednesday night I went to see my favorite of all time perfomer.  I have seen Rod at least 10 times.  Rod Stewart and the Faces were my older sisters favorite and I grew up listening to him.  It carried over into my adult life also.  I just love seeing him in concert and I never tire of seeing him.  If any of you have ever been to a Rod Stewart concert you know that he kicks soccer balls out into the audience each concert he does.  They are autographed by him.  I caught one of those socceer balls on his 2004 tour and it is one of my "prized possesions"!  That was the highlight of my week for sure.

These are a few of the pics that I took at the concert.  I took my older sister with me since she is the one that introduced me to Rod to begin with!  That is her and I at the concert.  I took so many pictures! 
The other really exciting event this week was the new addition to our family.  Her name is Maggie May (yep after Rod Stewarts song, it has always been my favorite)  She is 8 weeks old (born June 9th) and she is a multipoo.  I am totally in love with her already.  So is everyone in the house, oh yea all my neighbors too!

I think she is just so cute!  Our other dogs and our cat have all adjusted to her being her already.  Diva (the cat) did not like her at all for the first day or two but now they chase each other around the house.  It is comical to watch.  House breaking is going alot better than I thought.

Wow I didn't realize that it had been that long since I had made an entry in my journal!  I guess that means that nothing exciting has happened around my house.  That probably isn't true but I have no other excuse.

John and Josh are getting ready to leave for college.  Josh leaves on the 14th and John leaves on the 20th.  It is coming up fast.  I am not sure I am ready but I know that I don't have a choice.  Getting everything they need and taking care of all the financial aid forms and all the stuff that goes with that sure does take alot of time!  I think we now have everything in place for both of them though.  I hope!

We have been staying at the camper alot.  We just brought it home this past week (Monday) and I am enjoying my time at home.  I love the camper but after two weeks I am ready to come home and stay there for awhile.  We won't be taking the camper back until the 14th.  It is "girls" weekend.  Only girls allowed at the camper that weekend.  We will bring it home that Sunday (the 17th) but will take it back up there on that Tuesday (the 19th) and it will stay there for at least two weeks after that.  I will be on vacation the last week of August so it will be fun. I can't wait.  Ineed one!
