I realized earlier that it had been almost a week since I had posted. So much to say ...
We found out that Copper died due to a pulmonary embolism (blood clot to his lungs). That is also what almost killed my dad in the fall. I guess there was nothing we could have done to prevent or save him, but that doesn't make us miss him any less. I have posted a bunch of pictures of him here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=63418&l=f628d&id=731091130. I am also working on making a scrapbook for the girls.
So, last weekend was our trip to STL. My third favorite weekend of the year :) Although I cried here and there (and thanks to my friends for putting up with it) we had a great time. I have some pictures to post, but they are on my computer. Dave's computer was up and running and it was easier to sit here than to get mine out - right?
The Cardinals won - yeah! There was some dancing, some drinks, and overall merriment. I took some terrible self portraits of me with everyone. At the end, some did turn out. The Big Bang was much better this year. They actually talked less and played more music.
The shopping on Saturday was fine. But, why is it that when I am ready to spend money, I can't find things to buy? Overall, I spent less than $100 shopping. Probably better in the long run. Fast Eddie's was a better time than I have had there in a long time. The band this year was Millenium. They were great! I danced my tail off! I can always tell the caliber of a band if I dance with a glass cup or plastic. This girl was drinking draft beer out of plastic! I danced with several of our friends but had one interesting interaction - some guy came up and danced with me. And his cell phone. Texted the whole time. Awesome.
On one hand, I am glad that STL only comes once a year. I am not sure my body can take it all. On the other hand, I wish it was more often. I need that kind of fun in my life.
