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.

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.
Pretty sure that’s why they were one hit wonders!
This made me think of the times my girls walked to school, I would walk behind them for “exercise” but really just to make sure they got there ok without fighting and such
