Before we went to Delaware we saw Jimmy Wayne, Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley in concert. They were awesome. I think Brad Paisley’s shows are the best. It’s so much more than music. He always has these cool little animation things going on. And I’m pretty sure that he does that himself.
School starts in 6 days and I got a message from the school last night, saying that school would be starting earlier, so that the kids should be ready 10 minutes earlier than last year. That means they will be getting on the bus at 7am. Yuck for me, we are so not the morning people. Guess I better rework my morning/night routines.
It's the end of August, 22 days until school starts. In the next 22 days we have 2 concerts to go to Allman Brothers and Brad Paisley.
We are going to Delaware on our annual trip to Rehobeth Beach. And my new first ever laptop will be delivered. That's very exciting to me.

Aren't they cute? They are the creation of my department at work. And last week the cleaning person took it all away everything, including the wig on the left, the blonde one, that was my daughter's Sharpay wig from High School Musical.
It all went into the garbage.
