I am crushing HARD for this band right now! Muse, an English rock band that has been together since 1994, had always been one of those groups for me that I'd hear on the radio and think, "That's a cool song...", but for some reason would never actually buy the music. And I'm not really sure why? Of course I'm kicking myself, now. I mean, when you think of the time I wasted NOT listening to all of their awesome rock, it's really a pity. With a flair for dramatic intensity and guitar riffs that could send shivers up one's spine, it's no wonder they've had such long-term success. Needless to say, I finally DID purchase their latest CD titled, 'The 2nd Law', and it is AMAZING! Please, listen and watch a sample of their greatness above. It's the first video to come from the album and it's for the first single, 'Madness'. Enjoy!

Yep, that's pretty much what OUR garage looks like at our new home. You can hardly get around, and forget about parking a car in there! It's really odd to think of the fact that just about everything we own is boxed up and sitting out there just waiting to be unpacked and given life again in a whole new environment that we now call "home".
Of course, we HAVE been chipping away at the stuff, bringing a few boxes into the house here and a few there. But the problem is, just because it enters the house does not guarantee a box will get immediately unpacked. It's all just SO overwhelming, you guys! Know what I mean?

Boy, it's been four (4!) months since I last posted anything, and I must admit that I'm feeling a bit rusty. So, please, bear with me! I told you all in my last post that I was going on hiatus in order to find a new home for me, my husband, and our little chihuahua-mix circus dog, Esther. Well, I'm happy to finally be able to report that the house hunt is officially over...
We're now the proud owners of our very first house and it's quite exciting! Of course, the whole process of preparing to move (packing), the actual move itself (Thank heaven we're using professional movers!), and then ultimately unpacking everything on the other end is just completely overwhelming. But, fortunately, things worked out in such a way that we'll actually have the entire month of October to move everything into the new house. I can't even tell you how nice that's going to be! And after eighteen (18!) years of duplex-living, having our own house without any common walls is going to be beyond nice. Our own indoor laundry room, too! Aaaah... Oh, and our little Esther will have a huge backyard to run around in. That'll be fun to see! Can't wait 'til we're finally all moved in!
So that's it for my update. Stay tuned for more about the house, and maybe even some photos, too!

Hello, my ever faithful viewers (and those not-so-much... You know who you are.) I just want to say I'm sorry that I haven't been blogging regularly. You see, my husband and I have been looking for a house to buy and, well, it's rather time-consuming. We are having a fun time of it, though, as frustrating as the whole process can be... So, just so you know, I'll probably be tied up with this priority for a while... But hopefully not TOO long. I miss my circus.

Continuing on with my recent Gotye obsession, here's another great song and video that I think you'll like (That is, if you haven't already seen it - Like 'Thanks For Your Time', it's also been out for a few years. But, hey, it's all new to me right now!). Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Gotye is a Belgian-Australian multi-instrumental musician/singer/songwriter whose voice has been compared to both Sting and Peter Gabriel. I just discovered him while surfing YouTube and I'm sure glad that I did. So far he's done 3 studio albums and the range of creativity expressed is quite impressive. This song is actually on the lighter, upbeat side for him, too. It's an older one, I believe from around about 2007, but both the song and video are SO fun that it seems timeless to me. Plus, considering the collage technique used in it, it's no wonder that I like it like I do! Enjoy!
