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.
