Ask Me…What 3 songs 5/29/18

High Hopes by Panic at the Disco

Allow me to Geek out completely for a minute. I adore Panic! Brendon is a hottie. His music crosses so many genres. And I totally thrive on his Instagram snippits. Especially the interview he does while playing with dogs. LOVE IT!!!! His new album, Pray for the Wicked is coming out soon and I am in heaven all over again.

Mama said
Burn your biographies
Rewrite your history
Light up your wildest dreams
Museum victories, everyday
We wanted everything, wanted everything

Mama said don’t give up, it’s a little complicated
All tied up, no more love and I’d hate to see you waiting Continue reading

Inside My Journal…5/27/18

Snippets from my secret side… Is it a recent entry or from years ago…does it matter?

I still can’t tell whether I’m okay or not. Am I happy? What is happy? I am lazy, unmotivated, tired, lazy, fat, slobbish, but am I unhappy? I can’t tell because i can’t feel!

I haven’t attempted to do something I’m afraid to do. Does that make me weak? Fearful? Or just not adventurous?

Ask Me…what 3 songs 5/26/18

So,today I found my old Ipod nano and squealed with delight. It’s been missing for about almost a year. I found it in an old purse. (I have way to many of those!) I couldn’t wait to see what great oldies were on it and share my next couple posts. So let’s begin…

Rockabye by Clean Bandit

She tells him “ooh love”
No one’s ever gonna hurt you, love
I’m gonna give you all of my love
Nobody matters like you (stay up there, stay up there)
She tells him “your life ain’t gonna be nothing like my life (straight)
You’re gonna grow and have a good life
I’m gonna do what I’ve got to do” (stay up there, stay up there)

This song is one of those that I like to listen to when I need energy to exercise or to clean. I like the beat. The words are simple enough to understand and to sing along to. And Anne-Marie’s voice is a good one.  Continue reading

What I’m Reading Right Now 5/21/18

Black Dagger Brotherhood

Have you heard of them?

J.R. Ward writes divine alpha male stories.

I’m on book three right now. It’s not my first go at this series, however, she has written three books I’ve not read. I figured I would re-read them, catch up on the characters, and then dive into the newest books.

I’ve heard that Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series is similar. Has anyone read her series? Do you suggest it or do you have a better suggestion?

I’d love to know your thoughts!

What I….Saw

We each experience things that change us.

Moments that teach us. Force growth. Alter our beings and we are forever different than the previous moment.

Today it was a simple little event. My first child, now almost 19, about to graduate, went to prom. But that is not what I’m going to share about today.

No. I’m going to share about the crazy things you’ll do, the length and depths for your children. It sounds silly but I wanted the event to be special, you know? Yes, I realize that there are millions who never even get to go to school much less prom. I’m not in the least bit ignorant of the many blessings I have in my life. Having said that, allow me to make you laugh, or cringe, depending on the type of person you are.

Ask Me…What 3 Songs 5/19/18

Good Evening/Morning Folks,

So…what’s on your playlist? I like to share mine in hopes of lighting a fire within you viewers but also per chance to introduce you to something new. So here goes…

Mambo No. 5 by Lou Bega

Ladies and gentleman, this is mambo number five
One, two, three, four, five everybody in the car, so come on
Let’s ride to the liquor store around the corner
The boys say they want some gin and juice
But I really don’t wanna, beer bust like I had last week
I must stay deep because talk is cheap

Bega started singing at the age of 11. This song became big in 1999. I absolutely loved it! Although he had multiple albums after this first, none did quite as well, and that’s putting it nicely. I don’t know why, I just love bopping along to it. What do you think? 🙂  Continue reading

Midnight Musings 5/19/18

Image result for midnight       Midnight Musings

 

I’d only just found peace. It creaked into my life, like an old man with a cane. Still, at least it arrived. I’d finally shut down the inner eye, calmed the visions, the voices. I could breathe a sigh of relief. Until i couldn’t. He stole the memories within me, and now being used against me. Taunting me, pressuring me back into the madness. What choices does one have when all choices are ripped away? Now I look down the barrel of a gun if I go one way and walk off a cliff if I go the others.

He tells me it’s time I pay my dues. The burden heavy, the debt too big. I think I’ll never be able to, but I must. To save Him. I will. I left the bag on the porch, at the door. Who knows what lies behind it. Within the bag is dirt, mud, dust. The first two buried the last once upon a time. How is it he can play god, raise life from that dust? Does it even matter?

Editing and other fun stuff

So this week I did something…

I ordered the proof version and got to hold this thing in my hand. It’s so far from being ready, but man it felt great having it in my hands. I can’t edit my writing while staring at a computer screen. I like to have the book in my hand so I can take it everywhere I go. I’m going to mark this thing up all to hell. By the time I’m done with it, it will look like it’s been through the ringer a dozen times. Then I can sit back down and begin making all the official changes. Continue reading

Ask me…what 3 Songs?

Cover of the Rolling Stone…Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show

This one is an oldie but goodie. I can’t help but visualize my mom tapping her toes, exhaling her cigarette smoke from her Virgina Slim, and singing along with this song. Ah…the good ol’ 80’s (for me anyway). Haha

I got a freaky ole lady name a cocaine Katy
Who embroideries on my jeans
I got my poor ole grey haired daddy
Drivin’ my limousine
Now it’s all designed to blow our minds
But our minds won’t really be blown
Like the blow that’ll gitcha when you get your picture
On the cover of the Rollin’ Stone

She Looks so Perfect….Five Seconds of Summer

Even though I’m listening to it now, I also heard it earlier today while driving in the car with my 12 and 15 year old. They both agreed to liking the song as they bobbed their heads to the music. Me…39 years old connecting with my teenagers…it’s a great day when that happens. 🙂

You look so perfect standing there
In my American Apparel underwear
And I know now, that I’m so down
Your lipstick stain is a work of art
I got your name tattooed in an arrow heart
And I know now, that I’m so down

Reflections…MisterWives

This is one of my morning ‘wake me up’ songs. I tell Alexa (my echo device) to turn up the volume and blast away my sleepiness with this song. I’ll admit I never could understand how the music video connected with the lyrics though. I got to see Mandy Lee in concert with Panic at the Disco and it was my first experience with her music. I’ll admit most of her other music doesn’t appeal to me, but this song is enough for me.

You didn’t close the door
Left a crack open
I couldn’t ignore the faint possibility
Of having hope in this insanity
That we still could be
But we’re stuck floating in between

Those are my songs from today’s playlist. What’s on yours?
