MMMM + Flying solo

Well, so begins five days of being the only parent; Ash is at a programming conference. Every now and then I wish my job required travel – but not really. Maybe just once a year it’d be nice to get away for a couple days. You know, soak in a nice tub, sleep in a bed I don’t have to make, and eat a breakfast that I didn’t have to prepare.

I let the boys walk from about half a mile from their school this morning in hopes that this camaraderie will lead to their relationship getting better. Meanwhile, I stress the whole time, even though they understand walking on a sidewalk, crossing with a crossing guard, etc. And Elliot has a way to text me when he gets there. But I still worry.

We had a nice three day weekend: brewing, hibachi, Sonny’s, Thor (holy crap, expect more pics from that movie; Hemsworth obsession renewed.) Now that my sinus issue is on the mend, I feel a little more aware of my life; I didn’t forget anything this morning and I am ready to work. It’s kind of a miracle!


Ok, today’s theme is “One hit wonders when I was in high-school”.

Let me start with ’94 and we’ll go on from there until ’97.

I really hated this song but it was indeed a one hit wonder.

This next song was damn catchy and one of the first CDs I bought for my Sony Discman.

The guys from this next band lived in a neighborhood not five minutes from my house. One of my sister’s friends ended up dating one of them.

This final song was always a little gritty and on the edge. I loved it because she is subverting the male/female roles.

  1. It was right around ’94 when I stopped listening to pop radio, so none of these were familiar, but they did remind me why I stopped listening to pop radio…

    Seriously, though, this was a good set, just not my cup of mud.

  2. YOU HAVE ROCKED THE HOUSE! Man, everyone really got into the theme today! awesome. Sorry I’m so late had a really busy day! Thanks for joinin’ us! Big hugs…
