Yeah, yeah, yeah… I’m quite late with my music post this week. But really and truly, I have some awesome reasons why.
First and foremost, AJ downloaded Lego “The Hobbit” for the X-Box. I go nuts with Lego games and can’t seem to stay away from them. There’s something therapeutic about smashing the crap out of all the Lego objects and collecting coins for it. Love it. So, the child and I have been enjoying playing this game together every evening (okay, really me more than him as Mom seems to take things at a much slower pace than he does).
Second, my fish are dying on me. (You can read about my horrors of raising fish here). I changed the filter cartridge on their tank last weekend, then BAM! The water quality in the tank turned to mud. I don’t have a clue what I did. I had finally put all 3 angelfish together in one tank, but now one of them has died. The other two are barely hanging on, and I’m trying my hardest to save them. I even bought an entirely new filter system. We’ll see…
And finally, work has become amazingly stressful because of this year’s squirrel apocalypse. I’m going to stop counting now (we’re up to over 70 squirrel admissions), and I think we’re all at our wits end at the center. We’re all very short-tempered and are ready for the season to be done. Thankfully we’re like a family, work well together, and don’t take anyone’s “snarkiness” personally. This too shall pass… and we know this.
Now on to some music. I really had no idea as to what song I was going to choose this week, but then I decided to choose one about self-love. Remember… it’s what’s in the heart that counts… everything else is just superficial and inconsequential. Don’t live your life seeking other people’s approval, live your life for you.
This is a fun little ditty and it makes me smile… Meghan Trainor with Me Too.
“I thank God every day
That I woke up feeling this way
And I can’t help loving myself
And I don’t need nobody else”
Have a great rest of your week! I’m off to Port Angeles for the next 4 days to explore Hurricane Ridge and the Olympic National Park!! (Heaven help my fish…)
Don’t forget to go visit James at 50 in 50 Marathon Quest and let him know your favorite pick for the week!
