Chicago's Coming

Last day of work this week. Sweet. I'm sure by the end of the weekend by brain will be so full I'm not sure what I'll do with it. We've decided to leave a bit earlier tomorrow. Hopefully around 9:30-10:00. We weren't planning on leaving until noon, but that'd get us into the city about rush hour. I know any hour of traffic in Chicago isn't good, but I'd like to avoid that. The past 24 hours I've been working hard to get things together. Is anyone else like that? You bust your butt to clean before leaving on a trip in hopes that when you get back you come home to a clean and orderly house? The bathrooms are cleaned, dogs have had baths, flea and heartworm preventatives given, wash done, folded, and put away. The list goes on. Leaving for Disney should be interesting. Even more things to do and let's hope that the cats don't secretly have a party when we're away! I always think of that Tidy Cats commercial when they're having a party while the owner's away. Jax always watches us from the window while we leave to go anywhere. I can just see him being the lookout and then running in and unlocking the dog kennels and having a good ol' time. I know, it's not realistic, but it brings a smile to my face thinking about it. So mischevious. I've also been working on a Photo Story project for someone at work. Her son will be 1 in December, so it's all pictures from his first year. Just trying to find that right song(s) to put with it. My tastes may be very different than hers and we seem to be having a hard time thinking of one. Or we'll hear something and I try to find it to download it and can't find it. At this point I don't want to buy an entire CD just for one song for this. I was thinking of using a Jim Brickman song. Piano that's very soothing and progressive at the same time. However, with the amount of pictures (69) I'm going to need another song. So I was thinking something slower to begin with and then maybe a more upbeat one. Any ideas??? Better get going. Hope ya'll have a great end to the week and warm and cozy weekend.

Dad and I brainstormed about the music for the video. Since it is for a very young child, you might want to consider Brahm's Lullaby for the beginning/birth and then go into a Raffi song or one geared for someone young. Does he have a name that is used in a song (ex. My Name Is Michael). Just thinkin'.... Good luck, I know it will be great. You might want to ask Erika, I'm sure she is up on all the songs that little ones like.
