Dear J and the 9s,
I just can’t quit you J and the 9s. Whenever I try to listen to something else, I always come back to your music. No one is more excited that you have new music than me.
It has so much energy, which many of us lack. Maybe we’re living vicariously through your band. You guys are out there living the dream. I cannot even find my coffee right now.
So your music could help to save the day. Maybe your music will help people to discover their untapped potential and live their own dreams. Maybe not.
At the very least, the music that you make is a mood booster. Who doesn’t need something to lift their spirits? Until I find my coffee, your music will have to fill the void.
Thanks for being awesome!
Me . . . . again

The bartender said that this is a Zombie, even though it’s not green. It gave me heartburn so I felt like I was dying for a brief moment.
If it was closer to Halloween, I could have dressed up like a Zombie for a zombie run. It’s still on my bucket list.
We visited the Paper Moon Vineyards on Saturday. There was an ambulance there when we arrived; however, there was not a mass Exodus so we went inside.
Lucas and I sampled 5 wines each. My favorite was the sangria. He liked the Honeymoon Mead.

Octopus on left, Squid on the right. Butterfly roll in the back.
The squid was kind of plain. The octopus was almost impossible to eat without shark teeth or a sharp knife. I didn’t have either of those things.
The butterfly roll has eel, shrimp, avocado and cucumber. It was delicious.
In this one plate, I crossed three things off of the bucket list.
A few weeks ago, I read an article about the waterfall at Brandywine Falls at Cuyahoga Valley National Park. So I dragged Lucas along. Not really, he drove. I just had the plan and the directions.
It was totally worth the drive to see the waterfall. There are also hiking trails if you’re into that sort of thing. I was excited that I could count it towards my exercise plan.

Originally, I was going to ride a mechanical bull. Unfortunately, I don’t live close to one and I ran out of time.
So a lot of time has been spent researching bucket list goals that start with the letter M. I didn’t have a goal that fit the bill so I added one at the last minute. My bucket list is always changing. I might never finish everything but that’s ok. Last year, I didn’t do one thing on the list and it was a little disappointing. Hopefully, there will be more time this year. I’ve already done more this month that I did for the entirety of 2016.
My daughter wanted to wear matching t-shirts. In public. We found the perfect shirts. The hardest decision was to figure out when to wear them – to a party or to glow bowling. We wore them to Lucas’ surprise birthday party. He was surprised by the actual party and that my kid wanted to wear the same shirt as her mother out in public.
So here we are in our matching “Let’s Get Weird” shirts. Twinsies.

I grew up within 10 miles of this bridge. Today was the first time that I had ever seen it in person. This is the Mull Covered Bridge in Fremont, Ohio.
My mom has some pictures of it somewhere. Honestly, I thought it was in a totally different place.
There weren’t many visitors, which was good. The parking lot is so small and I am a terrible driver.
It was totally worth the 20 minute trip and all of the whining from my kid on the way home.
