Glad you had a great concert experience!

This doesn't even compare, but ... the first time (of twice) that we went to see Straight No Chaser live, it was in a fairly small auditorium, and we were about five rows from the front---terrific seats, especially when they did their encore ("O Holy Night") without mics! So when they came back to town the next year, we got tickets. But that time they were playing in a huge auditorium, we were sitting near the back of the floor level, and the amplification was too loud. Nothing will beat that first experience. That was a great evening. It was in December, so they did a set of their Christmas music, including "The 12 Days of Christmas"---fun to see that done live. (They must be sick of doing that by now.)
I love music, but can you believe I have only been to one concert my whole life. It was the Straight No Chaser concert in spring 2010, it was great, it was an anniversary gift of going out for a date with my wife.

What are your plans for tomorrow? I'm not sure what we'll do tomorrow yet, but it will be lots of family time, that is for sure. DH will be on his days off, so I am looking forward to it. I go back to work tomorrow night, then I will be off Monday.

Special news from my house! DS used the potty tonight before bed! He's been attempting to use for the past week, but he actually went on it tonight. I was so proud of him and he and his sister were too. He's not even 23 months yet, so I feel that's a pretty big accomplishment for a boy. I hope he can keep it up.

Well, I am off to read some more of the posts. I hope you all enjoy what's left of this night, then enjoy tomorrow. Thinking of all of you. God Bless and keep smiling!
Congrats to DS!!!
