"See ya kid."

Memories, light the corners of my mind

Misty watercolor memories of the way we were.
Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
smiles we give to one another
for the way we were.

Can it be that it was all so simple then
or has time rewritten every line?
If we had the chance to do it all again
tell me would we? Could we?

Memories, may be beautiful and yet
what's too painful to remember
we simply choose to forget
So it's the laughter we will remember
whenever we remember
the way we were.

I sometimes picture my life like it's a movie, or better yet, a music video.   Like somehow me just driving down the road could be set to music and it would instantly be more interesting.    Doesn't music make everything more interesting?   As overdone as it's been, I must say that "The Way We Were" brings up those photographic images in my mind.   Every time I hear it I think of my own memories and the people, places I've left behind.  What a wonderful movie to go with the song.  The ending in my opinion is one of the best.    It brings me to tears every time.    We all have our own cinematic moments in our lives.   Some we look back on and smile, and some we'd rather forget.    But I guess it's the good and the bad that make us who we are and who we were.  

"I can't come Katie... I can't."

"I know." 

Sigh..... what a great movie!

You want the truth?

I was tagged by my friend Amy over at Handprints of the Heart to do this "truth" survey.  So here goes:

6. If you could move somewhere else, would you?  Probably not at this point in my life, unless my circumstances changed somehow.   Though I would love to live somewhere else.  Top on my list would be New York, California, or even London....  but at this point in my life I probably will end up staying where I'm at.

11. When was the last time you cried really hard?  I cried twice today actually for dumb reasons!  Once while watching "Oprah's Favorite Things" and once while listening to a song.... haha!    But cried "really hard,".... it's probably been a while, and I can't remember exactly the reason.

Guest Blogger

Well we've been planning for weeks a wonderful blog post to be written today by my baby, Yoda.  But I'm very sorry that he will not cooperate.    Next time I have a guest blogger I'll be sure to steer clear of the divas.

What a brat.

Yeah, I'm boring.

I feel like I haven't written a real post in a while.  I guess because I haven't had anything too exciting going on.   We've been working on our house a lot, trying to get it all painted before it gets too cold.   It looks SO much better!  We have a brick home but we've been painting the trim and doors and it's made a big difference.   Also we're getting new windows, yay!  

Anyway, enough of the boring stuff.   Did I mention that I've been taking hip hop classes?  That's right, I'm hardcore.   Jake's been taking them with me.  It's been a lot of fun.  We have our concert coming up the first week of December, I'm excited for it!   I'll have to try to post a video when it's all said and done so you can all laugh at me trying to be gangster.  ; )  

Sorry I'm so boring these days.   In random news, I have been totally obsessed with this song lately.  I don't even like Pink usually, but I love this song, and I cannot stop watching her grammy performance... it was amazing!

I'll write again when I can think of something more interesting!

My Ode to Summer

Oh summer, dear summer...
where have you gone?
you promised to call,
but it's been way too long!

My tank tops are saddened,
my flip flops are too,
my skin is so white,
it almost looks blue!

I hate wearing sweaters,
and coats are for fools,
I just want the sun
and a day by the pool...

I know there are some,
who cursed at your heat,
but baby I love it,
You're SO hot to me!

I'll take heat over cold
any day of the week,
cause those who love winter,
are seriously freaks!

So please come back to me
and help me get tan
cause summer, I promise
I'm you're number one fan.
