My Boy Rocks! Literally!!!

Here's a video of my son's band, "The Release", playing at the Rockit Room in San Francisco, just a few weeks ago. Taken from a camera phone, so it's not the highest quality.

What an inspiration!

If you have a moment, please click on the link to the right: MckMamma and gorgeous children.

The author of this blog is one of the sweetest people I've come to know. I've been reading her blog for about the last six weeks. She is having a difficult pregnancy and her unborn baby Stellan is very, very sick. She's got people praying around the world for this little guy. Won't you be part of her prayer team?

Reading her blog has become such an inspiration to me and I honestly believe it is opening a beginning of a new journey in my life.

Please take a moment to visit her site and take a moment to pray for this sweet woman and her family.

Something New I've Come to Loathe

I sat down and watched an episode of "John & Kate plus 8" with my 12 year old and lo and behold, Kate Gosselin reminds me of me and her husband reminds me of my husband.

With all those kids, I'm not sure that I would in the best frame of mind. Kudos to them and God bless 'em! I'm honestly glad it's not me.

So Cool

As I write this post, my first born (who is almost 22) is playing his first "gig" with a band he joined called "The Release". They are playing at a club in San Francisco and then again tomorrow night at another club in the city and next week in the East Bay.

I am so proud of him for pursuing his goal as a musician. Love you Dan! Break a leg! (well.....oh GOD, not literally!)

Very Odd, Indeed!

The San Francisco Bay Area had a 4.2 earthquake at 9 p.m. PDT tonight. Nothing earth-shattering (pardon the pun)being that this is earthquake country, right?

The weird thing is, when I came home from work this afternoon, my kitten Ollie and my 1 year old Bernese Mt. Dog, Fiona started making noise around the same time and for NO reason. Ollie was laying on my dresser and he looked right at me and meowed and Fiona was outside whimpering. I just raised my eyebrow and thought "I wonder if there's gonna be an earthquake?"

I even took the thought one step further and wondered if we had an earthquake, would my 2nd story bedroom be safe? Then I remembered that our home is built on a mountain of bedrock and have always heard that bedrock was very stable.

Tonight, I received affirmation of a few things:

1) Animals DO act strange before earthquakes
2) My gut feeling was right on
3) My bedroom won't crash to the 1st level; and
4) Bedrock is stable.
