Disco Duck

When can the killer treasure a betting knight?

Now if this makes any sense to you then let me know. Because for me it is just as good as Disco Duck and The Streak. You see, even though I adore music, I do not like corn ball music. Actually corn ball humor has never appealed to me.

But, of course these have been one hit wonders. So what is your least favorite type of music?

Let It Be

My life seems to be all about change these days. My children are changing from kids to tweens, and next month a teen. Dan is wanting to change jobs. The house is ever changing, as we try to renovate and improve. The weather is changing from warm to chilly. The friendships in my life are changing as the people around me change. I guess change is part of life.

I am trying to embrace these changes. It's great my kids are growing into healthy, happy, well adjusted little people. A change in Dan's job situation would be excellent and I think take away some of the stress in the house. Getting things done with the house is great as well, I just would love to see one completed project. The weather change is a blessing, bringing in the holidays and hopefully ushering out the mosquitoes. As for the friendships in my life, the evolve as people grow and change.

I just seem to be very out of sorts lately. I guess I am changing, drifting. I suppose that is simply life. All I can do is let it be.

WildBlue Yonder

We lived way out in the country for quite a few years and although I loved it most of the time, there were some things I hated about it. Like the fact that the only internet we could get was dial up. It was so slow, didn't work correctly most of the time, and just drove me crazy! At the time, it was that or nothing because satellite internet was not available. The worst was when people would email us family pics and we could not view them because they were so big that the connection took forever to load them. We were constantly aggravated because even something as simple as checking your email took what seemed like forever!

Now you can get wild blue satellite in even the most remote of locations. It is fast internet, which I would have loved! They offer connection speeds that can be as much as 30 times faster than dial up! Satellite internet is even faster than cable internet! Wild Blue seems to be a reputable company to go with for your satellite internet needs. They can get you hooked up anywhere in the contiguous United States. They are a great alternative for those whose only other option is dial up service. I know I would have been thrilled to have access to faster internet service back then.

You've Got The Touch

Dan loves it when I give him a massage. Especially when he isn't feeling well, like tonight. He has just not felt good all day and I feel awful for him. He says nothing relaxes him more than me rubbing his back. Isn't he sweet? I gave him a good back massage, but my hands wear out quite quickly. We need a live in masseuse or a massage chair or something.

Massage is so good for you. It stimulates circulation. It reduces stress, helping you relax. I personally think it helps with insomnia, by getting your mind and body into a relaxed state, something that doesn't happen with me very often. They are also great for those who deal with chronic pain, helping to give sweet relief to the normal pain they endure. My mother could really benefit from massage, as her back constantly gives her fits. She says it is some sort of hereditary condition. She better be lying. Anyway, back to what I was talking about. Massage just helps your body do all the things it needs to do. That's the bottom line. And don't we all want our bodies to function at the best they can? I know I sure do! Heck, if Dan had regular massages, maybe he wouldn't feel so icky right now.

So, I think we need something like these Human Touch Massage Chairs. They are much more affordable than a live in massuse, regular massages at a spa, or even weekly treats at the massage chairs at the mall. I really think they would be a great investment for anyone who finds massage beneficial. Or those whose wife's hand tire out quickly. I would love to get one for Dan as a surprise. I best start saving my pennies!

Do you enjoy a good massage? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Take This Job and Shove It

Office SpaceImage by Legozilla via Flickr

That is how poor Dan is feeling about his job lately. What he thought was going to to be his dream position has turned into his worst nightmare. He hates it so much and is desperately trying to get a position in a different department of the store. Please keep his job situation in you prayers, it is causing stress for the whole family.

His job troubles have got me to thinking about what my dream job is. I think I might really enjoy something like desktop publishing or design. This is something I could do at home and still be here for Dan and the kids. I think more stay at home moms are looking for jobs they can do it home these days to bring in some extra income. There are elearning courses available on Web Design & Publishing that would be of great help. A little more knowledge of basic computers and general software applications would be useful as well. I think after taking some courses on the computer that my dream job could become a reality.

I am just grateful that I am not trapped in a job I can't stand, wishing I could find my dream job. Being a stay at home mom is a great thing, it just doesn't pay very well! What is your dream job or are you lucky enough to already have it?

Tough Little Boys

Have I told you about my Dan? He was my first crush. He was my best friend's annoying older brother during our middle school years. He was my night in shining armor in high school. He is the love of my life. And he is the father of our amazing kids. He is the most beautiful soul I've ever known and I know I am so blessed to have him. Happy Father's Day to my amazing husband! We love you!

Well I never once
Backed down from a punch
Well I'd take it square on the chin
But I found out fast
That bullies just laugh
And we've got to stand up to them

So I didn't cry when I got a black eye
As bad as it hurt, I just grinned
But when tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into big babies again.

Scared me to death
When you took your first steps
And I'd fall every time you fell down
Your first day of school, I cried like a fool
And I followed your school bus to town

Well I didn't cry, when Old Yeller died
At least not in front of my friends
But when tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into big babies again

Well I'm a grown man
But as strong as I am
Sometimes its hard to believe
How one little girl, with little blonde curls
Could totally terrify me

If you were to ask, my wife would just laugh
She'd say "I know all about men
How tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into big babies again"

Well I know one day, I'll give you away
But I'm gonna stand there and smile
But when I get home, and I'm all alone
Well, I'll sit in your room for a while

Well I didn't cry when Old Yeller died
At least not in front of my friends
But when tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into big babies again

When tough little boys grow up to be dads
They turn into big babies again
