till there was you
we recently saw an outdoor production of the music man. one of our favoritest movies ever.
spell check says favoritest is not a word. i say phooey to spell check.
i love this song from the movie. but i could do without the spanish subtitles you tube has so generously provided. however, they are not to blame for the goofy look on paul’s face which makes me ponder how the beatles became so incredibly famous….i guess some things are just meant to be.
it is so good to be home. traveling long distances with my husband and children and staying in hotels and eating too much restaurant food makes me really grumpy for some reason.
i truly believe the hum of the fridge. the whirrrrr of the air conditioning and the bright lights glaring into our room also had something to do with it. but i am still not sure. and the fact of the matter is there is NO place like home. even a hot and messy one!
the bad news is my grandmama faces a double mastectomy. the cancer is bad and is spreading into her chest. and she is still undecided whether or not to go thru with the surgery at her age.
courageous and so sad at the same time.
the good news is: i was able to write down the story of how she and my grandfather met.
and i have been wanting to do that for some time.
so it is done.
and so now, on this hot august nite. i will go take my place next to my tired husband. (he always does all of the driving). and think about the good things in life.
i remain forever the optimist, dear readers.
because the fact is: till there was you, i was more inclined to focus on the bad.
i need this place.
not all of the time.
but it helps me to clear my head. and semi-connect with other like-minded souls.
i haven’t officially announced a “break” per se. but my absence here once in a while is a good thing. it means i am doing what i am supposed to be doing. i am not overly concerned with stats or hits. oddly enough more people find me via their search for dumb blonde jokes. and although that is not really what i’d like to be remembered for i do have another good one if you’d like…
