"I feel fine enough, I guess, considering everything's a mess..."

So, I think today was one of the saddest days I have ever had as a music fan! I was innocently checking Perez on my cell phone and saw the headline:

"Steven Page Leaving Barenaked Ladies."


I know it must seem stupid, but you can not know how sad this made me. I have been a fan of the band for well over ten years and have seen them in concert a number of times! I have always loved their energy, their lyrics, and how the song "If I Had $1,000,000" can always make me smile- it's my happy song! It was the very last song of the night at our wedding!!! Mostly though, I loved the Simon and Garfunkel-esque quality of the combination of Steven Page and Ed Robertson's voices. So even though Barenaked Ladies will still be making music as a band and still have that same amazing creative energy, they will sound very different from now on, and as a fan, that makes me a little sad.

Sigh...

As far as today goes, it was a typical busy Wednesday! Anna had dance class in the afternoon and after a hiatus last week due to illness, Riley was able to join us again! Today was "Bring A Friend" day at The Little Gym, but since Anna's friend is already in the class, we all enjoyed the company of the new friends the girls classmates brought along! There was a Princess (or Prince) theme this week, so the usual craziness of a bunch of little girls in tap shoes looked more like a Princess Mosh Pit today! The class was full to the brim with fluffy pink cuteness!

I promise to post a picture of poor Ellie tomorrow! Now that she is a big 1st grader, I get much less one on one time with her, and thereby less opportunities to take pictures of her! I always feel bad when I try to snap pictures while she's doing her homework!

And in other exciting news, our hallway is done being painted! Even though our walls are old and crappy, it looks fantastic to have bright, fresh color on the walls! The feathering of our nest has proven to be a slllooooooowwwwww process, but as each thing gets done, the more this old apartment feels like ours.

Now I am off to watch the last of the Flyers game and then go to bed!
