Yesterday I woke up with the worst sore throat and body aches. Bleh. Eric thinks its because I was staying up all night playing with my sisters, and then playing so hard during the day too. I think its because Eric is home from work, and my body finally felt like it could let down its defenses. There are NO sick days when you're a mom, and I guess like my body felt like it needed to seize the opportunity.

I pretty much slept and/or watched the Michael Jackson hoopla all day yesterday. In regards to "The King of Pop," I don't find it annoying at all. Yes, the world has bigger problems, but I found the distraction sort of nice. I was one of millions who happened to be a child when "Heal the World" came out, and therefore sang it about 1,000 times in public for school recitals, etc. (never alone, ALWAYS in a choir). That song still gets me every time. Anyway, drama aside, Michael Jackson did change our world A LOT, and whether you like it or not, it happened. I thought the funeral was an incredible way to honor such a talented man, and his art. I want bagpipes at my funeral, by the way. And maybe some backup dancers too...

Oh yeah, and we want Nan and Pop to come back.

I love the bagpipes and backup dancers. I will SO be at your funeral! :)
Thanks for hosting our little get together last night. It's always so fun to get together and hang out with you guys. I had a blast. Too bad we don't live closer dangit! Really!
