We had an awesome time! We get there and there is a guy called Mike Rehlm there doing the scratchy record thing. As he moved the records back and forth the video's that he had would do funny stuff. He played all music from the 80's which was really good. Tom got us great seats so we were not far from the stage. I don't like being on the floor seats because you can't see over peoples heads; so we were in the front row on the side at the VanAndel Arena.
Then the Blue Man Group got up there and they do not say one word throughout the whole show. They are hilarious with all their facial expressions and body movements. When it was time to introduce the band, they got two people out of the audience to read out of a notebook the list of names.
The group did an awesome job and all the percussion equipment that they use is amazing. Different tubes and pvc pipes and other equipment. They even did a scene where they put fake televisions on their head and that was hilarious.
The show was more than I thought it would be. I knew there would be different sounds and music. Did not know that they had other people playing drums, guitars, keyboards and vocals, skits and all kinds of different light shows along with it and costumes.
I would recommend this to anyone who can stand to listen to music really loud. The comedy and entertainment that they provided was worth it. We were laughing so hard sometimes. So hard that you stomp your feet and hit your leg because it was hilarious. There was a guy behind us and his laugh was fun too.
Anyway, gotta get some stuff done around the house. Enjoy your day! God bless!

My daughter Amanda and her boyfriend Matt and his friend Jake went out to Grand Haven this afternoon. They enjoyed themselves out there and I am showing you some pictures from their little trip.Makes me wish that I went with them to take pictures myself. I look at the Lighthouse and see the people close to the water and think that they are crazy for going out on that pier. Hope they don't fall in. Then I think of what a cool picture that one person is taking of the ice build up on the lighthouse. That would be cool!
Matt and Jake on Lake Michigan.
Amanda and Matt out at the lakeshore. Looks windy and they said that it was.
Looks like they had a great time out there. The sunshine made it a really nice day! God makes many things beautiful!

Thought you would like to take a look at something that was put together. There is one picture that got rotated the wrong way. This is just a copy and is still being made. I will have to add more pictures to it eventually. All this takes time to do, but is a lot of fun. I actually do not get the credit for this part. Amanda's friend Lea is the one that put this part together for us. I will eventually finish it. Hope that you all enjoy! A lot of it is of when we got married in August 2006. We wanted it to be relaxed and had a Hawaiian Theme type wedding. Lots of fun and lots of comments on how relaxed everyone felt.
I get such a joy out of taking care of people and being able to make them laugh or just to help them when they cannot help themselves. That gives me great joy!
In two months I am taking my Certified Nurse Aide training again, because it has been four years since I have had that. I never renewed or knew that I had to tell the state that I changed my address or name so never got anything forwarded to me. So, now I have to take the class over. When I am finished, I am going to go back to work with my friends in Allendale. That will be a lot closer to home too. I won't like the fact that I have to work weekends and some holidays again, but, it is something I want to do. I don't mind being home and doing things here, but sometimes I just want to get out of the house. Plus, the best way to do that is to go take care of people. That makes me happy too.

We are all going to the Detroit Red Wing game on Friday. We will have so much fun. It is a first for all of us. Amanda's boyfriend's parents got the two of them tickets to go to this game on for a Christmas present. When we got together with his parent's his Dad asked if we wanted to go and he would try to get tickets. So, all of us and Matt's family are all going to the game. We are going to go to hockey town restaurant and have some food before the game. Then shuttle over to the game. After the game I will be driving us all back because Tom (my husband) has Coast Guard weekend. He is still in the reserves and has to put his weekend in. I will update all of you to let you know how everything went.
Today on the news I seen that horrible report on the accident over on Beltline about the car going under the semi. Not good! That just goes to prove that we need to live every day to the fullest and grasp every moment that we possibly can.
