WHY AM I STILL AWAKE?!!!
Last night, I think I got about three hours of sleep, if that. The night before, I think it was around three hours also. I'm runnin' on empty here! If not for the wonder of COFFEE, I would not have made it through work tonight. Thank goodness I did, though, b/c I made about $65 (and believe me, it was SLOW) and I really needed the money! I thought it was funny when I delivered a pizza to a guy who had a Papa Johns car topper on his car, and he tipped me $6. He totally knows our plight!

So anyway, Trey and I went to LIVE X yesterday, and it ROCKED! We spent the majority of the time there sitting in the bleachers kinda off to the side of the stage. There was shade there and a decent breeze. The earlier bands were alright, but I wasn't there to see them, so we enjoyed them from a distance. I wanted to get up and dance and mosh when Breaking Benjamin was playing, but I opted to stay sitting so I could save my energy for later. We also walked around for a bit, bought some very overpriced water and a snowcone, and people watched. There were some very interesting people there, so there was no lack of entertainment in that area! Three Days Grace was after Breaking Benjamin, and they were quite awesome. I didn't realize they sing so many songs I like. I went and danced a little near the end of their set, but not much. The last band to play was Staind, and they were the BOMB! It was everything I hoped it would be. They are just as awesome live as they are on my cd's. I danced and headbanged till I couldn't handle anymore. Then we had to go sit down for a bit. We opted to leave a little early, before Staind had finished, b/c not only was I totally exhausted from being there for about 6 hours already, but I really didn't want to have to sit in the traffic when it was all over. I was sad to go during such a kick-ass band, but I'm glad we did.

Later, Trey and I were trying to figure out how old the lead singer of Staind is. He did a cover of the song "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd (The Wall), which my mom told me was released in 1979, and said that he used to listen to it all the time on the radio when he was in high school. Trey asked me if that was from the movie The Doors. "Uhhh, no. It's from the movie The Wall. The Doors was a movie about the band The Doors, and was made in the 90's." "Yeah, the one w/Val Kilmer. That's where this song came from, right?" I won't go on with the conversation, but it took me a while to get it through his head that The Doors had nothing to do with The Wall or the song. Looks like I need to rent us an old movie in the near future! My baby's got lots of learnin' ta do! We figured, though, that the lead singer must be around his late 30's, early 40's, but Trey just can't believe that could be. I mean, he's just so HOT and COOL! Huh, I just looked it up, and it says he was born in 72, which would make him only about 34 or so. He must have listened to an oldies station in high school!

Oh, one more thing. I got an ultrasound of Cole today. At the moment, he's 3 lbs., 7 oz., and his foot measures 5 1/2 cm, which is only a tiny bit smaller than Taryn's! In his pics, he had a total mean face for football, so Trey should be happy, and the ultrasound tech pointed out his manly parts enough during the ultrasound to make me quite sure he has nothing to worry about in that area. Then I went to see the dr., and she said everything looks fine. Yippee! Not much longer now. I'm at 30 wks. and 3 days, and I'm starting the every two week appts. now. The countdown is on...

Okay, I hope you have a great day, and I'll see you soon!

    Did somebody do a remake of that song? I can hear the Pink Floyd version in my head, but then I seem to remember hearing it all the time in high school and seeing the video for it on MTV. The word Numb is very clean in my mind.

    Never mind. That was U2, Numb. Totally different song. The lead singer of Staind is younger than my husband.
