So yesterday I was huddled in bed hiding from the world until after 9am (not an easy feat with the boys). I had terrible PMS which was making me totally morose and annoyed about Finn's asthma diagnosis (which, I realize I haven't told you about yet, but I'll post about that another time, AND I also realize that asthma is not cancer and I need to get my head together and deal with it, but again, I'll talk about that later).
Anyway, after consuming my weight in Reese's Cups and Almond Joys last night, today I am feeling better, partially because I took a huge walk this morning and reminded myself how lucky I am to live here:
One of my favorite views--The New York mountain range
And it seemed like every song that was being shuffled through on my iPod was something I wanted to listen to. Even though the iPod is loaded with all of my favorite CDs, stuff comes up all the time that I don't feel like listening to at that given moment. But today, I didn't hit forward once.
So I strolled along, singing (after looking covertly over my shoulder to make sure there wasn't someone behind me to hear), and enjoying the morning.
The picture above shows what I saw this morning. This is what my walk sounded like:
Sick of Myself, Matthew Sweet
Those Magic Changes, Sha-Na-Na
You Spin Me Round (Like a Record), Dead or Alive
Hold Me Down, Gin Blossoms
Does She Talk?, Matthew Sweet
Bohemian Rhapsody, Queen
Looking at the Sun, Matthew Sweet
Born to Hand Jive, Sha-Na-Na
Small Town Boy, Bronski Beat
The Meaning of Love, Depeche Mode
Bodhisattva, Steely Dan
Wild Honey, U2
Love in Itself, Depeche Mode
Get Back, The Beatles
Add it Up, Violent Femmes (OK, kind of not appropriate for a Sunday stroll)
What's the Matter Here?, 10,000 Maniacs
There She Goes, The Boo Radleys
Rhyme & Reason, Dave Matthews
Nikita, Elton John
Relax, Frankie Goes to Hollywood
Hmmm, I don't think there's anything in there from the 21st century. Perhaps I need to update my life's soundtrack.
