Everything is a song to me right now. Even the title of this post. "Whoa, that bloggy feelin'. Bring back that bloggy feelin'..." Everything is a song because I'm in that crazy bubble of time right now...ordering cheer uniforms (done! "stayin' alive, stayin' alive. whoa whoa whoa whoa, stayin' aliiiiiiiiiiive"); collecting and assembling frustrating amounts of paperwork ("working 9-5, what a way to make a living..."); and finally, this week, starting cheer practices! And the music connection? Because I listen to a crazy, crazy amount of random music trying to find the right song for their dance this year. I listen to the music all around me, trying to find one that strikes me for a dance. Cuz I also have to choreograph this dance. And that's just not my thing. But I make it my thing. And the song is.....
Stray Cats "Rock This Town". It'll be fun. I have 20 girls this year. It'll be fun. Three nights a week for two hours at a pop. It'll be fun. I promise. (I'm talking to myself.)
These girls are truly so sweet. They have been patient with me this week. We slammed out 22 cheers in our first three practices. Uh-huh. Love them.
So, in an effort to get songs out of my head and get back my bloggy feelin' ("whoa, that bloggy feelin'"), I thought I would post some more interesting pictures that I would miss out on if I deleted things from my camera. They probably don't need much explanation.
When a 10-year old takes pictures of her dog:
When a hungry 16-year old makes pancakes:
When a curious cat climbs in the dryer:
When a mom finds it interesting that girls 3 years apart can share shoes:
When a 16-year old boy buys his momma some truffles as a gift when he's away at Silverwood, and that bag sits in the hot sun:
(The bag says, "Dear Mom, It's the thought that counts. Love, Alex")
And, yes, I still ate those truffles.
Okay, it feels so good to be back. Maybe I'll even get around to finishing our vacation pictures soon.
