songs for a season


April 18, 2011 by Heather

Sorry for the lack of blogging.  Since I last posted, things got busy and in the spaces between the busy-ness I felt it more important to hang out with husband+pets and do things like exercise and sleep instead of trying to come up with something witty and awesomely awesome to write about.  A few updates:

  • I get to have a root canal done in the morning, yay.  It was supposed to be this coming Friday for $1100, but (thanks to Andrew’s advice) I shopped around and am now having it done tomorrow for $800.  What a bargain.  Part of me wants to insert a bitter “damn dentists” here, but it feels too, well, bitter.  It is what it is.  Blah.  If you would like to donate to my root canal fund, I am taking donations in increments of $100.  Thank you for your support.
  • Packing is coming along smoothly.  Today I am working on condensing our clothing.  I am rather enjoying it.
  • I am getting over a weird throat/head/cough thing I had this weekend.  After a couple of Nyquil hangovers, I am feeling much better.  Love that stuff.
  • While sick, I ran the college’s 5k race and got 2nd place in the ladies category.  Last year I came in first, but this year my time was 2 minutes faster, so I was pleased.  And a tad sore.
  • Last Wednesday did in fact end up being my last day working at the library.  I was kind of glad, shhh.


So I’ve been thinking lately about songs that sort of defined certain seasons of my life.  Defined might be a strong word.  More like… songs that, if my life were a movie, would be played in the background while I was going through whatever I was going through at the time.  Just to give an example, “Keep Breathing” by Ingrid Michaelson was a song that I listened to over and over while dealing with my parents’ divorce last year.  It’s not a song about divorce, but it conveyed exactly how I was feeling at the time and I would sit and close my eyes and listen to it and somehow know that everything was going to be ok.

On a lighter note, this is the song for the current season I am in now.  It has nothing to do with what’s going on in my life, really, but it makes me feel happy and truly alive.  Which is how I am feeling these days.
