Here is our family room collage. At top left...a huge picture of M.
Thanks for all the kind words. Not to pick favorites, but I like what Christi said. "It would be really weird if this wait wasn't this emotionally draining for you." I guess it is normal to feel this way. After reading my post Dan thought I had officially lost it, but I assure you, it's normal. It would be weird if I didn't feel this way. Buying a new pair of shoes helps with a sad day, I have found. And remember, I'm not a shoe person, so you know I'm just not myself these days.

#1 - The Dodos, Visiter
This San-Fransisco based band put out the most fun and creative album we heard this year. Similar to Animal Collective (but less abstract), I guess their music could be called psychedelic folk. These guys are very talented musicians.
And the rest...
Bonnie Prince Billy, Lie Down in the Light
Just watch this video. Awesome.
Fleet Foxes, Fleet Foxes
As Autumn said, "it's just really good."
Jenny Lewis, Acid Tongue
While this album is very good, it became a favorite after seeing it performed live.
Conor Oberst, Conor Oberst
While the straightforward country-rock flair of this album turned many people off, it's the reason I love it. Rhett's favorite lyrics to sing along to this year: "Help me get my boots on, help me get my boots on, help me get my boots back on!"
Honorable mention: Department of Eagles, Wolf Parade, TV on the Radio, Blitzen Trapper, Horse Feathers
