I want to blog. I really do. But I am pretty sure my brain is mush . . . literally, mush. I am surprised it hasn't started oozing out of my ears. I guess it is only a matter of time- so watch out. I don't feel like I can be clever or funny or even the least bit interesting so I have just stopped blogging. The 29th will be bring me much happiness and a needed break and hopefully my brain will start to solidify and I will be able to make sense of everything or maybe just ANYTHING again.

Things to look forward to on this blog.
1.Pictures my friend took of me for my graduation announcements.
2.More Sonja stories.
3.A report of what I will be doing this summer, including all my wacky adventures and my unwacky adventures (books I read)

I know you're excited. So am I!

I'm Sorry

I know, I have been the world's most terrible blogger lately. I have just been insanely busy. It's the last few weeks of my final big semester in graduate school, my totally awesome Celtic band has been in the studio recording our first album (I am not even remotely joking) and I got sick- all at the same time. So I have pretty much been crazy this past month. I've been neglecting my friends and family and even myself . . . and it's starting to take it's toll.

But the weather is starting to brighten so subsequently my mood is starting to brighten.

Last week was Easter and I wanted to share with the world what my mother made me. Being that I am the single one with no family, my mom has a tendency to go a little overboard. Worried that I might become suicidal or something if I don't celebrate. My mom made me this Easter basket.

. . . and yes, there are two stuffed bunnies- one, "you can hang on your door". It's really thoughtful, but she chose the most terrible Easter candy imaginable. Peeps, malted eggs, blow pops, sour gum. . . seriously awful. She also chose the mesh tulle covering the basket because she wanted it to be something I could "use later". Hmmm, she is so funny.

Just an added thing. I was talking to her today on the phone and here are three quotes, directly from the horse's mouth.

"I will not add water to her fire"
"She will cut her own goose"
"She is as crazy as a bed bug"

She was obviously frustrated with whoever she was talking about, but I couldn't stop laughing.

Pray for my mom, she was in the hospital and super sick yesterday, she is doing better today- but I worry.

As far as everything else. I am finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel. I will have to find a job soon, which is terrifying, but I am ready to not be poor anymore and to be a grownup again and write on my blog more.

Tonight You Calm My Restlessness . . .

Tonight Aliah and I spent the good part of 3am looking up old songs from our past. I remember trying to fall asleep when I was a small girl, listening to my old clock radio as the numbers would flip over. There were many songs that lulled me to sleep- Groovy Kind of Love, Islands in the Stream and even Janet Jackson singing Let's Wait a While. The mix we have come up with will do nothing less than put me in tears and I love it. But the all time favorite memory is this one:

I LOVED this song. I cried many a night to this song. My elementary school heart just couldn't handle it.

We want to buy the song, just this song, but have been unable to find a way to do so. The person who helps me get this song, so that I can play it on my ipod on eternal repeat, will get a very special slow dance. Believe me, it will be well worth all your efforts (even if you're a girl).

Or I could just do my ballet dance moves as you gaze at me through the window. You choose.
