my love for music.
Today I went on a walk up North Mountain. Spencer and i just got home from our Babymoon last night (details later) and we had flown ALL day long. I actually started crying on the last flight because I was so swollen and sick of being cramped. Our journey yesterday took us from Fort Lauderdale Florida to Orlando to Philladelphia to St. Louis to Phoenix. It was kind of a lot for a 30-week pregnant woman. The only solace I took was that I could order all the cran-apple juice I wanted and baby gurl would move like CRAZY every time I drank it :)
So this morning I wanted to walk. And swing my arms and roll my shoulders and never get on an airplane again. Until after I give birth to this little wiggle worm. Please watch Brian Regan "Airplane" for your enjoyment.....
Back to my story... The reason this walk was so different though, was because I actually turned on my iPod for the first time in AT LEAST 6 months. I used to LIVE on my music. When I was a single lady, music ruled my life. If I was driving Music was blaring. I went to tons of concerts every chance I got. I felt lonely if I didn't have my music.
Now Spencer is my music. He and i do everything together and for the longest time I haven't even thought about turning on all those old songs that I got so emotionally attached to. I was so EMO. I loved to listen to punk and feel sorry for myself. I loved to listen to hip-hop and dance with my roommates. Now I just talk to Spencer and he talks back.
So when I put in my earphones today and Brand New was shuffled on, I remembered how much I love listening. It gave me more energy to walk up 7th street and keep going around the North Mountain "loop". I loved it! Not to mention how much I picked up my pace when Carrie Underwood came on... and then Mary J. Blige and then Foo Fighters and I didn't even change it when Good Charlotte popped up. (I used to always change Good Charlotte. I don't even know how it's on my iPod).
What I'm trying to say is that a healthy appreciation for music is GOOD. And this will be one of my 2011 "things". To become acquainted with MORE GOOD MUSIC! Let the good times roll.
