Soon my mom will be here. Soon I will be leaving for Milwaukee for a week with her and Sophia. Soon I will get to go to the Neil Diamond concert. Soon I will get to see some of my family and old friends. Soon I will visit my crack head brother in prison. All too soon I will be on my way back home. Soon my life will have some sort of routine to it.
I did some more cleaning at the old house today. OMG what a mess. I cleaned the fridge and deep moped the floors. Took more trash out. Josh is grumpy.. because I told him I didn't think we would get our deposit back even if he painted. As if he is helping clean anyway.. hump.. he lived there too, it is not alllllll my fault. We have four kids for crying out loud.. in very close quarters for over 3 years. He is just a bit stressed that our first mortgage payment is about due and his work is not as picked up as he wants it to be. I told him I DIDN'T even want to hear about it nor worry about it. I straight up asked him if he thought we were living in a house we could not afford.. he insisted no.
Friday has come up sooooooo fast!! Were did the week go? I still have to make sure that the kids are all ready for next week.. clothes set aside for school, snacks bought for school and lunch money paid. School picuters ofcourse are next week.. and I will be broke.. gurr.Josh may or may not be here while I am gone.. depending on his work. My friend from church will take care of the kids if he is not. In that case I told her she could use our van. So I have to make sure the van is cleaned out and that she knows about the leaking power steering fluid situation. Don't even get me started about that!!!!
I am excited about my mom coming and her and her husband getting to see our new house. I am even more excited about a week away.. even if I have to bring Sophia with. My mom is taking me and my sister to the Neil Diamond concert Monday. She says we have really good seats too!! She lovessssssss him, so I was raised on him and know all his songs by heart too. I tried to get Shilo to play in my journal.. not sure if it is or not.. I give up. I picked that one because it describes my childhood to a T! It still makes me tear up. I was tempted to put in Kentucky Women in honor of my friends Lori and Jess who are from KY. Stop thinking I am a freak for liking Neil Diamond lol!! Ya the Jazz Singer was not such a morally sound movie LOL and I for the longest time thought he was Jewish in real life! Now he is an old, gray,cigar smoking dude but I still love his songs and am passing on the tradition to my kids.
Neil Diamond - Shilo LyricsYoung child with dreams Dream ev'ry dream on your own When children play seems like you end up alone Papa says he'd love to be with you If he had the time So you turn on the only friend you can find There in your mind Shilo, when I was young I used to call you name When no one else would come Shilo, you always came And we'd play Young girl with fire Something said she understood I wanted to fly She made me feel like I could Held my hand out, and I let her take me Blind as a child All I saw was the way that she made me smile She made me smile Shilo, when I was young I used to call you name When no one else would come Shilo, you always came And you'd stay Had a dream, and it filled me with wonder She had other plans "Got to go, and I know that you'll understand" I understand Shilo, when I was young I used to call you name When no one else would come Shilo, you always came Come today
