Celebrations for special days are stupid. They should just be outlawed completely. Perhaps I should celebrate my birthday on some random day in September. The weather is always better in September than in May anyway.
Mother’s Day ended in tears. Mine and theirs.
My anniversary ended in tears. Mine and theirs.
How will my birthday end? MYSTERY!
Let’s just say I am a little ornery rightthisverysecond. I thought, Hey! since I am going away on a lovely trip (my first real vacation in FOUR YEARS) I will share my anniversary with my entire family and invite my children to accompany us to a cloth-napkined restaurant for a lovely night out. Until one cried. And then another cried. And I put my cloth napkin on the table, grabbed the keys, and like a stubborn toddler, stomped out of the restaurant to sit in the car and be angry in peace. Needless to say, a meal in a restaurant was not in the cards.
So, I got into bed and stuffed my face with the guilt cupcakes my husband brought home.
(Guilt cupcakes > a husband who plays hockey on your anniversary)
And then I watched Grey’s Anatomy while IÂ yelled at my TV that this was so effing ridiculous. Also, kind of repulsive. I WAS EATING CUPCAKES YOU KNOW. Also, I was annoyed by my Twitter stream and suddenly felt horrible for all of my west coast friends. I hope they shut down their social media between 9-10pm EST.
But! Just because I am ornery today (and not just because one of my most favorite people on the planet doesn’t think the movie Elf is funny)(and not just because my iMac shits the bed every morning)(and not just because I have 13,456 things on my to-do list before I get on an airplane today) doesn’t mean I won’t make book on promises.
After a Twitter conversation led to two thingsâ€”The song Wild Horses stuck in my head AND a compliment about my recommendations getting to my swollen head (*giggle*)â€”I promised to recommend some great music that you may not have heard but I annoy my children with on a daily basis. I have a habit of putting songs on repeat and listening to them over and over and over and over.
So, behold. Here are some REPEATERS for your enjoyment. Happy Friday!
