Old timey music

This week while I was packing up my apartment, I pulled out several albums I hadn't listened to in a long time - Wilco's Summerteeth, Radiohead's The Bends, and the Verve's Urban Hymns. It had been years since I'd listened to any of these, at least all the way through, and yet I found that I still knew the songs just as well as if I listened to them every day. It's odd how music can stick to you that way, or how a song or album can remind you so vividly of a particular time and place. All of these are CDs I bought back around the end of high school and beginning of college, and listening to them brought back those years and all I was experiencing at the time so clearly. It turned out to be great music to pack to - as I'm embarking on a completely new stage of life, it was nice to look back on old times.

Exciting news!

So I hadn't posted about this yet because I wanted to make sure to give Amy and Rich plenty of time to tell everyone they wanted before I started blabbing about it all over the interwebz, but...

My little sister is pregnant! They just found out about a week and a half ago, and she's not very far along yet - she thinks six or seven weeks, maybe. This was a bit of a surprise for them, since they weren't planning to start trying quite yet, but needless to say, we're all incredibly excited about it. Mom and Dad are completely on board with the idea of being grandparents, and I know Rich's parents have been longing for grandkids for a while now. And the best part is that they'll be moving back to Indiana, so we'll all be able to get our fill of baby Vail. I can't wait to be an aunt!
