Early Morning Rain

I couldn't tell you if you asked me how this song got to be my "I want to go home" song. I have a vague memory of my mom playing it throughout my life when it was cold and dreary outside, with dewy drops clinging to the oak leaves. And I was perched on the couch doing homework near the fireplace. A calm and lazy Sunday with my mom in the kitchen, doing her thing. And this song playing in the background. Now, when I crave my happy place, Gordon Lightfoot takes me back to the cabin by the creek.

You can't take us seriously.

Him: *while tripping over our dirty laundry pile that has taken over our room* So I put an ad on craigslist.
Me: For what?
Him: It said something like, "I want a wife exactly like mine except less busy so she can do my laundry."
Me: Good. Let me know if anyone calls. I want a wife like that too.

If my heart were a house, you'd be home.

Right now reminds me of home. My husband is in the garage using power tools and tracking sawdust into the house. I can hear him faintly in the background hammering and sawing away. I have some Dean Martin playing softly and chicken noodle soup wafting through the air. It's actually chicken dumpling soup but whatever (recipe post maybe?). And here I sit preoccupied by my homework- editing a Word file. Punching numbers absent-mindedly into a calculator. It's almost like I was back in high school and the man in the garage is my dad and my mom is the one making the soup. Funny how things come full circle.

Awake My Soul

How fickle my heart and how woozy my eyes
I struggle to find any truth in your lies
And now my heart stumbles on things I don't know
This weakness I feel I must finally show

Lend me your hand and we'll conquer them all
But lend me your heart and I'll just let you fall
Lend me your eyes I can change what you see
But your soul you must keep, totally free
-Mumford and Sons

My honey took me whale watching today because my "bucket list takes priority over everything."
We didn't see any whales but I don't mind. That just means I get to spend at least one more day staring into the cold water cuddling up to a bearded man.

Stress Relief

Recently I've been looking for a way to relieve some stress. I wanted something that I would look forward to do but also would refocus my energy. I believe I have found it. Just Dance 2 for the wii. And let me say, it is FUN. It's also a stress reliever because it is HILARIOUS to watch my husband do dances such as this one:
