I learn more about myself all the time.
Today I re-learned that driving a long(er) distance (than around town) alone isn't bad. Shocker for those who (really) know me. And that it means I can listen to whatever music I want and skip songs I don't want, and I sing along as loud as I want. Even if it looks funny. I recommend these songs for singing along as loud as your vocal cords allow:
"Kissing the Lipless" - The Shins
"Am I Wrong" - Love Spit Love
"A Lack of Color" - Death Cab for Cutie
I'm sure there are others, but I can't think of them right this second. Also, the CDs playing in my car today were from mixes I made when I was 18 and 19. I was a cool kid. I still like those mixes, big time.
Secondly, I re-learned today that wearing makeup is sometimes more of a hassle than it's worth. I like rinsing my face mid-day, mostly because it's so hot outside. And today, having no makeup on = awesome. No makeup on my hand towel. And plus who cares.
Lately, I'm trying to figure out what to do with my life. I already have two things down: wife and dog owner. (That and daughter, sister, aunt, stepsister, granddaughter, etc., etc.) Beyond that, I'm an open book. Any suggestions? I have several options in mind: grad school student, nanny, dog walker, artist. Now it's your turn for some ideas.
Happy Monday to all my friends in blogland. And real land.
