(A cookie for anyone who knows what song that comes from - without google!)

I have a post half written about everything that happened while I was at home for Christmas ... but I still haven't found the time to complete it.

Work is work - I had an employee put in their notice. With three people laid off and a hiring freeze ... this is going to get interesting. I am attempting to shave down the number of insects we are taking care of.

Life is rather hard right now. I came back from NC a little on edge because my parents were fighting for the last couple of days while I was at home and then I was immediately back in the thick of things here. There are some days that I am so very tired of being the responsible one or dependable one. Everyone else can dork around because they know that I will pick up any slack.

I think I will feel better once I have had a day off to spend at home. I am hoping to get my bike tuned up and have a blinker attached so I can start riding to work again. I need to get back in the habit.

Re: I want my cookie
Alas, no - it is from "Jenny Says" by Cowboy Mouth.

I fell in love with this song and band back in 1998 when it was introduced to me by a couple of friends (Ironically enough I just recently found out that the band if from New Orleans). It is kind of my theme song for when I am overstressed in a frustrated, angry sort of way ... "Again Today" by Brandi Carlile is my overstressed, lonely song. Oddly I think I have a song for pretty much every emotional state and attached to all the major memories/experiences in my life.

I tend to think I pick my music based on my moods but I also concede the fact that by listening to certain songs I can change my mood (not always for the better).

If you are curious:
Jenny Says

Again Today
The passage that always gets me:

"The path of least resistance
Is catching up with me again today
I'm broken down, not good enough
The broken promises add up
To twice their weight in tears which I have caused
I'm afraid to sink, I'm afraid to swim
I'm sad to say I miss my friends
I know that I'm supposed to step away
But they need me to stay and keep a watchful eye
On all my heroes and all their demons..."

Brandi Carlile is awesome. Her entire CD "The Story" is amazing. If you want me to upload any of this feel free to ask ...
