Maybe Just One Day Off

I need a day off just to take of all the little things that I've let pile up and have now become major issues. I get very overwhelmed very easily.

Last weekend, I saw Michael Buble in concert at the UCF Arena. I was worried that the show would be boring, although I really like his music. The show was awesome! He was so funny, kept everything very light. At point, he segued into Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit. And his opening act is a group called Naturally 7, seven men who use their voices for song and for sound (as mimicking a musical instrument). The man who did percussion and the one who voiced the bass were the best of the group. Their music was Christian in type, but it was very enjoyable.

I was worried because I bought the tickets for my mom as a birthday gift, and I was not sure that the crooner/swing part of Michael Buble would interest her. Lucky for me that we had good seats and the two plus hours seemed to fly by. Even if you didn't know MB's original songs, the standards were great. The money was well spent.

I think I want to learn to knit. The reason? I need a skill. Having a technical mind notwithstanding, I have no abilities with my hands, voice, etc. I can't draw, my voice is pretty awful (I don't even have those half-witted friends who would lie to me and say I sing well to get me on American Idol), and my athletic abilities are only seen in my dreams. I saw a really cool picture book at Borders and I think I can take on this challenge.
