A new beginning

November 28, 2008 at 3:52 pm (Melodie, Shit)

I feel like today is the start of a new beginning for me. I’ve been through some horrible (but necessary) shit this month and I am totally ready to move on. Rather than dwell in the past, I will be moving forward to a new future, a new beginning. Whatever happens, I know that I am a strong woman and will come out of this mess with a clear vision of what I want (and do NOT want) in my life. Thanks to everyone for your support, it’s been difficult. Of course, I know that the “hard” times are not over (in fact, probably far from it) but I need to breathe.  I am blessed with great friends, wonderful parents and the best little boys anyone could ever ask for.

Reminds me of Bob

November 6, 2008 at 9:07 pm (Bob)

So my brother is a great guy. He loves to buy drinks and schmooze. The boys and I love to listen to country music (something my brother abhors) and there is this one song that reminds me of my brother. 🙂 It’s “who’s gonna take me home” by Chris Young. Anyone who knows my brother and knows this song will see the “resemblance.” Basically, it’s a song about a guy who is at a bar and has had too much to drink. His friend left him on his own and he’s looking for a ride. Classic.

The last few lines are:

Twelve little hotties crammed in a back booth
With a bachelorette all drinkin’ Vermouth
Lucky for there’s just enough room

Well hello girls, next round’s on me
Toast a few drinks to the bride to be
Close the town down and then we’ll see
Who’s gonna take me home?

Let’s just say that my brother is not shy. He can work an entire crowd and make everyone happy. He gets this from my dad. SOOOO unlike me. I like a good party, but I like to be left alone to come out of my box on my own. Bob can be in a good mood instantly. I envy that about him. A social butterfly with excellent people skills.

Now, if I could just learn a few of those skills.

Feeling blah…

Oy!

I am ready for a change! My job is totally crappy, my life is full of homework, my children are sick and I need a break! Is it the weather? The time change? The election? Probably.

I’ve had a bit of writer’s block and can’t seem to generate words in an effective manner unless I’m being graded.

Will write more later. BAH
