So Far Away...

Yeah, I know. My blogging ain't what it used to be.

Truly it isn't a lack of things to say - I have just been actually doing other things! Hard to imagine me doing other things, huh?

About the template - omg you have to help me find one that I like. I tweaked and screwed and messed around with everything that BlogSpot has - I hate them all. I want something new. Original. TerriBerriStyle. Help me! ;)

Our anniversary was spectacular. AMAzing even. For all that J put me through during the week, he made up for it fifty times over with the day I got to spend with him. We rode the bike to a neighboring town and went to an indie music producer's new warehouse - a grand opening with a keg of 90 Schilling and live music! Does life get any better? Yes, apparently it does. We then went to hear Drug Under do a set - remember that name. They are going to be huge. (Have I been wrong yet?!) The best part was that J had a good time. He interacted with everyone, enjoyed the music, let me drink myself silly with no derisive looks, bundled me back on the bike and brought me back to my children. Who had the house "clean" and the leaves in the yard "picked up". And had made us the most beautiful cards...the kind you NEVER throw away. No matter what.

It was a magical day, like none that I have ever experienced before.

I spent the rest of my free time working with my camera - so much to see, so little time. I have some great shots of the bands - but yeah. I cannot upload them. The batteries went dead. I was not expecting that at all. I thought my camera had committed suicide.

And guess what? I got all of that horrible paperwork finished. My shoulders have no idea what to do with themselves now that they are not weighed down with impossible tasks.

As I speak, I cannot express to you how happy I am on this Monday night. I will not be unreasonable and expect things to be this good forever, but I will enjoy the way it feels right now.

*sidenote: The warehouse owner and music producer is going to let me work for free in his shop - in exchange for CD's and entrance to shows - can you believe my luck?!

So glad that you and J had such a great time. You sound like you have the world by it's tail. It makes your mom's heart very happy. Love your mom so far away but so very close.

Sher: I love it when you talk like that! :)

Sarah: Indeed, these kind of days make the icky ones kinda dissappear. I am sure I will need to come back and visit this entry another day just to remember how great it CAN be.

Jock: ...now if I could just figure out what it is so that I can keep doing it!

Mom: I am glad that your heart is happy. I miss you.

Hey Terri!

Wow! Sounds like a great day!
I'm glad you had such a wonderful experience, as I feel you deserve it. It's important that we celebrate ourselves.

BTW, for the answer to your question about a certain photographic perspective, you'll have to e-mail me.

It sounds like you have truly found Shangrila! Hold on tight, you deserve to keep it

You RAWK girlie! I'm so glad you had a spectaculor day. I hope the thrill lasts forever. I am insanely jealous about working at the warehouse, though. Free CD's and show tickets would be AWESOME.

great anniversary! you put my husband and me to shame. and we've only been married 2 years. we should be having dynamite anniversaries still. for our 2nd anniversary, we went out to eat where i had 2 glasses of wine. he had to pull over on the way home so i could pass out in a stranger's lawn.

cool that you're into live music. and into photos. and cool that you're into pilates, except that i hate pilates because it's too challenging. i like exercise that is easy. :)

JACC: I'm all over it. I need to add about 15 more hours to my day to get done all of the things I want to do done...;)

Jorge: Thanks! And yes, it is very important that we celebrate ourselves...although I think I celebrate MYself way too much. HA!

Awww Jeff: Shangrila...I love it! I am trying hard to hold on...I promise. ;)

Becca: When can you come over? I have so much to show you! Bring your own headphones...

MsBiped: Haha! In a stranger's lawn?! That's aweeeesome! I might try that for my 17th...I will let you know how that turns out.
