How bad am I?

I have not been keeping this up at all. I have been checking on myspace, and pretty much ignoring my blog. I am a bad girl! I feel like I am saying that a TON lately! I don't know where all this guilt is coming from.

I have my psych consult for by surgery this week on Thurs. I have to go to TC for it, and I am going by myself, so I know I will have a good time. I love shopping by myself! I never feel rushed, or like I am driving someone crazy because I will look at the same shoes/shirt/whatever a dozen times before I decide that I can't live without them. This kills Warren..he's always like "just buy it, or don't, but don't drag me back there to look at it again!"

Happily, there's no family news to report. Dad's coming along well from the surgery...Mom's feeling fine-and Eric--well, there's no helping him. I keep trying to talk him into finishing school. I don't know if he will or if he's going to try to buy a house with the girlfriend and be stuck in Manistee for the rest of his life. I guess I don't care as long as he's happy. AHH, what do I know?

BTW, I don't know if you guys keep up on the casino promotions, but, we're having a Showtime boxing event broadcast live from Little River this weekend. There are going to be a bunch of celebrities around Manistee. We've been given an unofficial list of names, but I couldn't tell you one of them. None of them mean anything to me. But I thought it was kind of a fun fact to know. I'll update you if I get to meet any VIP's, I really doubt that they will be hanging out at the table until the wee hours of the morning, but I guess you never do know.....

My Space

I've been visiting quite a bit lately...I think I am becoming addicted to searching for people. I mean geez, for Pete's sake, its almost 3am, and I am still awake..and on the computer. I never consider the fact that I would only be going on hour 2 at work right I am supposed to be awake. I think I like being up at this hour though, there are no distractions. the phone won't ring (even if I'm not online), there aren't any cars going by the house, there's no one pulling into the driveway to make the dog bark...its kinda nice. All that, and I have the house to myself, so if I decide to play my music really loud, I don't have to worry about waking anyone up!

Anyway, back to myspace, I have an unofficial 'date' with Kelly LaFleur at the end of this month...she said something about having to cat sit for her 'rents, and I mentioned dollar beer night at First Street tavern is on Weds, which happens to also be my day off! Hopefully, she'll be able to meet me there...I don't think I have seen her since graduation, or shortly thereafter.

I went for a ride to Cadillac today, I had to pick up some groceries and things, and I noticed that the lakes around here are REALLY high. Lake Mitchell is almost over the edges of the canal (by the park) and the little pond thing (Pine River) by my house is really high...some days, it even goes over Low Bridge Rd. Which is the way I have to go to Cadillac, until they finish the Cooley Bridge (on M-55). I thought that the last few years, the water levels had been at record lows..It looks like things have changed...hmmm

I watched "the Perfect Man" today..with Heather Locklear, Hillary Duff, and Chris Noth...for a 'teeny bopper' movie, it wasn't that bad. I think I have a soft spot for "Mr. Big" though.

The Show was....

Freaking AWESOME!!!

Loved it!!! Had the best time! I am so in LOVE with Kenny Chesney. The seats were awesome, the beer was cold--and not too expensive, and did I mention, KENNY FRICKING CHESNEY!!!

holy crap!

oh, yeah, and Deirks Bentley and Carrie Underwood (that's her in the picture with no forehead! It was hard to see what I was shooting sometimes) were there too! Special guest was Uncle Cracker--they sang 3 songs together...The Sun goes down, one by Uncle Cracker...and COWBOY! (Kid Rock) It was sooo cool! We went with Warren's buddy Ted and his wife Cathy..they're both quite a bit older (I am the same age as their youngest boy) but, we still had a great time. Cathy is a huge Kenny fan too, so we sang and danced all night...while Warren and Ted drank beer and stared at Carrie Underwood (she was right behind us--I did say the seats were good--right?)
After the show, we went back to the room and pretty much passed out--I was exhausted and the man was drunk...Today, we went to TGIFriday's and then I got to do some shopping...I love Grand Rapids! All in all, we had a fantastic time!
