American Idol and Webkinz

     **************************** SPOILER ALERT*************************************

Just in case anyone is going to an American Idol concert, I didn't want to ruin anything for anyone.  I was able to go to the American Idol concert last night in Columbus (thanks to birthday presents for the girls and myself from Grandma!!)  Anyway, I was terrified I was going to be in China and miss the concert.  Silly, huh?  So, the good news about this whole long China process was the I got to go to the concert.   My good friend Amber gave me tickets last year, even though I didn't even watch American Idol.  I loved it so much, without evening knowing the people, that I decided to become a fan of this show this year.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE David A's voice.  He could sing me to sleep every night.  I was however, a bit disappointed in this year's concert.  It was really good, don't get me wrong.  I just did not like the format at all.  They started with #10, Chickezee (spelling very wrong) and went to #3  Seyesha, letting everyone sing three songs each.  David A and David Cook sang 4 songs each.  The 10 of them only sang one song together.  Last year, two of them would sing together.  Then 5 of them, 8 of them, 3 of them, etc....  I just really didn't want to hear Chickezee and Ramielle sing 3 songs in a row.  So, if one wanted to go to 10 different concerts, it was fabulous.  I just wanted them to sing together more.

     Now, onto Webkinz...  I feel like instead of a little girl from China,  I feel like I have a Webkinz.   I get on the computer periodically, look at her, and then close the computer.  That's what I see my kids do with their Webkinz.  Well, they do feed it and make it do jobs, and put it to bed.   But, you get the idea.  Sometimes, it just feels like she's not real.

Hoping against all odds to hear some great news this week!
