Failure



Our yard no longer looks like that. Yay! However, that is what a blizzard looks like, in case you were ever wondering. Yes, I am a full week late on this. But let's face it, my blogging skillz ain't what they used to be.

Shameful as it is, I have failed at blogging everyday. I missed Friday and so I figured what's the point in posting Saturday when I have nothing to say? Embarrassing.

I am so hungry. I cannot stop eating. I have this huge gnawing hunger in my tummy that WILL NOT GO AWAY. In fact, I am typing this post with chip encrusted fingers.

In case you were ever wondering how many times I could listen to Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" in a row, the answer is INFINITY. Where was this song my entire life? I'm totally blaming my parents for keeping me away from secular music for the first 15 years of my life. Kelly Clarkson and Ingrid Michaelson better watch out because Steve Perry is making a run for the money in the song count on my iTunes.

I finished reading "The Sun Road" today and HAAAAAAATED it. Holy cow, my ire for that book could not be any stronger. I thought that was pretty strange because the two lovely ladies who read the book before me enjoyed it and gave it a solid "Good" rating. I, on the other hand, found the entire thing boring and pretentious and wordy. By the end of the book, I was yelling about how much I was annoyed. (Which is SO pleasant to be around, might I add. I read a few passages aloud to Alex who graciously humored me. God bless him.) I will admit that it did make me cry towards the end, but I am contributing that to the fact that my father-in-law recently passed away from cancer and not from the gibbersh-filled excuse for prose. Because it was dreadful! Absolutely dreadful!

so nice that you "found" Steve haha. Infinity is also the name of an early Journey album.... coincidence? Have a listen to some of that and you'll be amazed even more.
