New York City Here We Come!!!

I think I'm going to have a nervous breakdown in anticipation of seeing Josh in NYC! I have decided to attempt a album cover recreation and that is adding to my anxiety in a HUGE way!

I know I'm not alone in this, but I think I'm putting way to much stress on myself to make the winning entry. I need to CALM DOWN! I'm over-analyzing it. I think the intention was to make it fun; but it's not fun. Maybe that is why I'm having such a difficult time coming up with something.

I'm not crafty or artistic, so I'm having to rely on my heart and photo imaging software that I haven't learned how to use yet. I've gotta take a deep breath and step back for a moment. Just not sure how to do it.

I have told my husband about 100 times that '07 is my year to meet Josh. It would be perfect in NYC because my hubby will be with me and we are using the couple of days we will be there to re-connect with one another. The concert, where we are staying and the city are a perfect combination! The cherry on top would be meeting Josh!

My 4 yr. old would be ecstatic if we came home with a picture with Josh! He knows we are going to see him - although I'm not sure he knows exactly what that means - and he is excited and a little disappointed that he can't go. The other day he said that Josh was his best friend! How cute is that? We might take him with us when he comes closer to our neck of the woods.

So back to this contest. I have a few ideas floating in my head, but how does one come to the conclusion that "this is the one". Does it just happen? I guess I'll work on several versions and then get the help of some friends to decide. Deep Breath!

Ok, so I'm trying not to hang out too much on the boards because I want to be surprised at the concert. It's hard though. I'll take a peak at the titles of some of the threads and have to force myself not to revel in all of my fellow Grobies concert stories.

Alright, I'm going to spend the rest of my lunch hour brainstorming! Wish me luck!
