1. The last band I saw live was the contemporary band at church this past weekend. Or maybe the Butler Pep Band at a basketball game last winter? If you're talking real concert, Kathleen and I saw Melissa Etheridge live just...oh, my, that was like almost 2 years ago.
2. What I look forward to most on Thanksgiving is only driving to Marion for lunch, and being home in the evening. This year I'm going to try to watch Holiday Inn, one of my favorite holiday movies, and for some reason I love to watch it at Thanksgiving, but it eludes me.
3. My Christmas/holiday shopping is barely begun. I've picked up some goodies for Chris over the last few months, but for others...only in theory.
4. Thoughts of Baby Blankets fill my head. I went shopping for yarn, and had to stop myself from going totally nutsy, because I have some expectant friends, and I keep thinking what sorts of recipes I want to do for them or for me. I've currently got an upstairs sewing project and a downstairs sewing project. Plus, I got super motivated and started working on a quilt project that had been set aside for Chris for a year, a quilt made out of his receiving blankets. This week, during my Preschool break, I pinned and stitched the top AND bottom, it's going to be reversible. :) Now I just have to stuff, bind, quilt or tie.
5. I wish I could wear cheap bras. How lovely it would be to be able to find a little satiny number at Wal-mart that fit me.
6. Bagpipes are cool. That's a skill that I personally don't want to develop, but I admire in others. Something about hearing bagpipes and seeing them played makes me stop and pause.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to going to bed. MOPS is having a Mom's Night Out, and boy howdy could I use the escape, but Eric is having Lasik surgery this afternoon (eww!) and I have to tote his barge, and he may not be up to watching a boy alone. Plus, Chris only slept 3 consecutive hours last night, and they were all before I fell asleep. Then he was up every hour all night long, so I'm pooped. Tomorrow my plans include running my husband to a follow up Lasik surgery appointment at the eye doctor-whoopie...and I told him I'm getting the biggest fattest nap and Sunday, I want to take another nap! But I'd also like to empty out the back bedroom (or rather have Eric do the emptying), and take all our crap to hide in our friend's basement, because we're really hoping to paint the back bedroom (to make it Chris's) over Thanksgiving Weekend.

Hope the Lasik surgery went well! It was one of the BEST things I ever did! I still wake up sometimes and am amazed that I can see the clock from my bed!
