So I did what every normal American mom does when she finds herself at odds with her day... I wasted it.
My daughters don't think I wasted it because I spent the day looking at Steam Powered Giraffe videos and trolling their website. They are my oldest daughter's favorite band and we are all going to see them in concert this weekend.
I don't know if you remember, but this is the event I was shocked and appalled my oldest was grown up enough to get tickets on her own and plan to drive to on her own. I was coming to terms with it, but she was so excited about this band she wanted to share it with us.
Then my youngest daughter got excited about it, so my oldest bought my youngest a ticket for her birthday. Then my oldest put together some of their videos and bios and emailed them to us.
She showed me some of their videos while I was standing in her room one day and she constantly talks about what the band is doing. I started getting excited about it and so did dad, so we bought tickets.
Yesterday I figured I needed to catch up with the whole of the band before the concert by actually reading the email my daughter sent and watching all the videos. So I did.
Now I'm really excited about the concert because I know it will be a great show and although I'm not in groupie mode like my kids, we'll be taking them up there in the morning and dropping them off for fan events.
Here is their website and a couple of their videos for your viewing enjoyment; you'll know why it was worth wasting a day on:
