COMPUTERS ARE GREAT....WHEN THEY WORK!

on December 7, 2006 - 7:31am

Oh boy........I had a virus on my computer and it was down a couple days. I can't believe how much I missed it.....much like people, we take things for granted until they're gone. This month marks the loss of my mother to cancer 22 years ago. I was a newly wed and only 20 years old. I've been going through some yucky (it's the only word I come up with describing this situation) physical "things" only a woman would know about. Missing mom during the holidays, raising kids, marriage ups and downs, and now this....I have so many questions for her, like; when did she go through her "change"? - OK - I said it - it's a personal thing, and probably TMI for most of you out there, but it's on my mind constantly because frankly I don't dare leave the house today; just incase.....if you know what I mean. Ugh. OK enough of that. I'm thinking of my dad today too. He was a very passionate patriotic man and I know if I were to talk to him today, he'd mention the fact that it's Pearl Harbor day. He died of cancer in January, 2002. WOW, a girl, even at 42, feels a bit abandoned when both parents are gone. They raised me strong, though, thankfully, strong in faith; which comes in quite handy EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY! I have so much to be thankful for. As you get to know me, you'll know that I LOVE SNOW. Living in Minnesota we used to see lots of snow...but over the years it seems less and less. Yesterday we had just a dusting, but you wouldn't believe what it did for me mentally. It's so beautiful! And here's my feeling...if it's going to be cold, it might just as well be snowing! My body doesn't like the cold.....my fibromayalsia flares up and the more I fight it, the more likely I end up in bed; oh well, I'm learning to cope! Just about have my Christmas shopping done. I have so much fun choosing just the right gift for the people I love. There truly is more joy in giving than receiving. If my kids can stay healthy and happy and safe this year, that's all I ask for. Raising two teenagers isn't the easiest job in the world; not so physical as when they were little, but now more emotional with the ups and downs of school, friends, and every day pressures of being a kid. I didn't have all of this growing up; it's heart-breaking to see them have to deal with so much "stuff"...I guess that makes them strong in their faith too, and courageous in making wise decisions based on goodness and not on pressure, right! I better get to work; I'm trying to build my home business and things can be so distracting...I "must keep on task" (SMILE). Good day to all of you Grobanites out there! Let's start a petition to get Josh to make a Christmas album! I'd just LOVE that!

I have GROBANITIS....

on December 4, 2006 - 9:06am

I put off playing my Christmas CDs this morning to listen to Josh....AWAKE....I actually dreamed about him last night (DON'T THINK I'M WEIRD, PLEASE!) It was strange, he was just a part of our family. My 13 year old and Josh were in our backyard doing some underground wiring; I think for his next concert; because there were other people around I didn't know. But the rest of my family, including my dad who passed away 4 years ago, was watching from my deck....is that bizarre or what? So........do any of you out there has a list of "WHAT I'D LIKE TO DO BEFORE I DIE"? Well, I would LOVE to meet Josh Groban. I'm almost old enough to be his mama (I'm almost 43 - remember we share the same birthday month) but he brings out an emotion in me that nobody elses music can do. I'd like to tell him that someday and just hug him and let him know how special he is. I love his humor, his child-like, yet mature, manor and OK, I admit, he's SO CUTE! AND I love his curly hair - my son had long curly hair up until the age of about three. I will miss seeing him in the Minneapolis area in February......maybe next year? OK....have I gone on and on? Enough already. I better get some work done - that's the ONLY downfall of owning your own business and having your office set up in your home......little (BUT IMPORTANT AND WORTHWHILE) distractions like the net. Josh Groban......YOU'RE THE BEST! Anybody else out there feel a need to comment on that? I know, we all feel the same; that's what makes us GROBANITES!!

GETTING READY FOR ANOTHER WEEK

on December 3, 2006 - 9:16pm

The silence is kinda nice - just had to check in and see if there's any news on Josh with TV appearances, etc. Better get some beauty sleep - was real restless last night; too much on my mind. Lots of people I love are sick and/or in the hospital. Have to just keep praying God will bless them with health.

Was looking at some UTube videos late late last night and saw the one of Josh singing "Oh Holy Night" at the Vatican in 2002.....WOW - made me cry. What a guy - just can't get over the talent....and yeah; he's so nice to look at too! :)

VISIT ME!

on December 2, 2006 - 9:55pm

I should be in bed 'cause it's really quite late - I have church in the morning. But, my head is spinning, I just watched Phantom of the Opera with my daughter. LOVE THAT MOVIE...........would love to see Hannah play Christine some day! Thought I'd check to see if anybody commented on my journal...........but not yet! This is an invitation! I'd love to talk to someone out there who "loves" Josh as much as I do! Better try sleep - I'll put my earphones on and listen to Josh - what a great way to fall into la la land!
Goodnight everybody!

MUSIC CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE

on December 2, 2006 - 12:36pm

It's a cold blustery day here in Minnesota - I just wish it would snow as long as it's cold anyway! Besides the fact that my hubby is in the snowblower business! Anyway - I'm sitting here on my computer in a nice cozy office with music filtered throughout the house, candles lit and bread in the oven - feeling life is a blessing! OH, and my daughter (who sings like an angel) is in our local paper in the "weekender" section singing and preparing for our high school Madrigal dinner. It's a pretty neat write-up about how the kids put the whole show together - can't wait to see it next weekend. My head is spinning with mail coming daily inviting Hannah to attend THEIR college! She will make a career and lifestyle with her music..just have to decide where to go. Anyway........I'm babbling......oh, one more thought - I'm so disappointed Josh won't be travelling to Minnesota on his tour in February/March - I was hoping to make it an annual event to see him in concert EVERY YEAR. Poor me...........right!
