What I’m Thinking Right Now

Posted by Shelley on May 22, 2010 in Uncensored Shelley

You didn’t ask for it but here it is :)

Mike bought some Ugly Dawg salsa. It is gluten free. Says so right on the back of the jar. We managed to eat 3/4′s of it just now. It’s dawg-gone good. Might be sending him out for some mo’ here in a minute.

Ummm…. AOL radio “totally 80′s” is about the best app my iPhone currently has going. PYT is on right now. Need I say more?

And did you know the word “awwwww” actually comes up in spell check on the iPhone? It has several more w’s in it btw, in case you are grammatically correct when it comes to these things. It also spell checks the word “ya’ll”. Which is “ya’ll” according to the iPhone. But really it is short for “you all” which should be “y’all”, at least that I was I learned in the previous century. I double checked this with the 5th grader in the house who actually has a (albeit 21st century) grammar teacher. She said “y’all” is correct. Which means the iPhone is wrong. Aren’t you glad you decided to read this far?

So there is this blog by the Christian author who is “pretty out there” which means, she basically just throws it out there kinda like me but she’s written a few books and actually has a “following”. She’s very genuine and honest and I have the utmost respect for her. Her latest is on “The Idol of Hurry.” I concur. Except I think most of the folks I know, including myself, are all about the idol of busy. Think about it, if you’re busy do you really have time to connect, bond or really, really care? You know the answer to this but I don’t blame you if you don’t answer. It’s a shame. But it’s the truth and I live, breathe and walk it out every day determined to change it. But that’s hard to do when the mind is willin’ but the spirit is weak.

Well, awwwwwwwwww…. not sure if that’s right not, b/c wordpress is not picking up on it… my kids are finishing up school this week. My son brought home his 5K memory book and I got out my daughter’s 5K memory book from 2004-2005. It is about the fourth of the size of his. Why do I mention this? For a variety of reasons but I think I will stop there. This deserves its very own blog entry.

Well, “99 Luft Balloons” just came on AOL radio and I think that is my cue to stop and listen to the wonderful lyrics of this song. Are they in German? and if so why I am listening to a German song on AMERICA online radio? good grief.

It’s all good now. “Jungle Love” is on. And you just can’t go wrong with Morris Day and the Time, I don’t care what decade you’re in. Oh-wee-oh-wi-oh.

Repost (kinda, sorta)

Posted by Shelley on May 2, 2010 in songs

I’m watching “Meet the Robinsons” and it reminded me of a post I did in September 2009. The song at the end of the movie is a good one and would be included in the soundtrack of my life, if there ever was one!

Going back and revisiting moments in time, trying to make sense of it all is nothing new to me. Expressing it outloud and sharing it with the world on a weblog was a little different. So, this is one of those days. Rethinking it and telling the world about it. In a “shelley-esque” kind of way.

09/26/09 I posted a few of the words this song that defined what I was going through at that time. Here is the whole song. Now I see those lyrics defined more than just that day and that particular moment in time. Instead, the song explained the twists and turns of fate in my life and gave me an answer to the “whys” about those small hours. Some of these lyrics I need to just go ahead and tattoo on myself. Words like “clarity”, “let it go”, and “let it slide” just seem to jump off the page at me.

let it go,
let it roll right off your shoulder
don’t you know
the hardest part is over
let it in,
let your clarity define you
in the end
we will only just remember how it feels

our lives are made
in these small hours
these little wonders,
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away,
but these small hours,
these small hours still remain

let it slide,
let your troubles fall behind you
let it shine
until you feel it all around you
and i don’t mind
if it’s me you need to turn to
we’ll get by,
it’s the heart that really matters in the end

our lives are made
in these small hours
these little wonders,
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away,
but these small hours,
these small hours still remain

all of my regret
will wash away some how
but i can not forget
the way i feel right now

in these small hours
these little wonders
these twists & turns of fate
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away but these small hours
these small hours, still remain,
still remain
these little wonders
these twists & turns of fate
time falls away
but these small hours
these little wonders still remain
