At first, she could not imagine anything other than yawning waves of pain, as she contemplated the 'empty nest'.

But at some point, it became obvious that the worst of the pain were the waves of yawning caused by a consistent lack of sleep, caused by the exuberance of her daughter's youth, expressed in ever-later curfews.

Summer of the Sistah comes to an end

Making Memories of Us

Keith Urban sings the only "our song" we've ever had. 'Memories of Us' is a great song and when I found out Keith was coming to Iowa, well, we just had to go!

There must have been 20 or more of these semis. Amazing!

Excitement is building...

We were one of the last two cars to squeak into the good parking lot. Woot woot!!

Taken in the parking lot...bad lighting.

Taken in our bad seats in the nosebleed section. Booooo.

Big screens full-o-Keith!

Better seats halfway through the show led to a stellar experience!! Thanks to Miss Emily West and her sister Addy!!

That man worked his butt off. We totally got our money's worth out of that man!

The end of the show! What a blast we had.

Note the time...Keith Urban is no slacker!!
