A day in the life…

So… Joe of Joe & Co. turned me on to this rock group. I know it’s not every one’s cup of tea, but for what ever reason, this song just hit a cord with me… I really like it!

Like I said, it’s hard rock, it’s not for everyone. But for me, I dunno… it makes me feel very alive and very much like the woman I was in my early 20’s before work and responsibilities and student loans.

I feel like I’ve been asleep for a very long time and I’m just now waking up. I think that’s a good analogy. I’m going out with my friends on Fridays and Saturdays now. I’m listening to music again, I’d stopped for a very long time, too. I’m even planning on going to a hard rock festival with a dear friend. THAT I wouldn’t have done in the last 10 years at least. I did one concert back in 2005, and the ONLY reason I did it was because it was Fleetwood Mac. They are my all time favorite band.

I also can honestly say that I’m at peace for the first time in a long time, too. It’s nice. Life is uncomplicated and un-dramatic. I have no complaints about work and home is lovely.

Speaking of home… Papa is doing wonderfully. He’s sleeping ALOT. But, the PT dood said that this is completely normal and it may take several months for the effects of the anesthesia to wear off so that he isn’t sleeping all the time and feeling wiped out. It’s ok, I think. He doesn’t like it, but heck, he has high expectations.

I am off. My day ends at 11am on Fridays. The 9 hour work days are a killer Monday thru Thurs. but then Friday comes along and I’m Golden…

Have a great weekend!

    Hey Juli, I know what you mean about that song. I heard it and really knew I needed to look into getting the album. Funny how years go by and things slip away like that. There are certainly things that can wake us up again that’s a wonderful thing. Hope you have a great time doing what you do. Blessings to you Juli.
