A Day in the Life


Music I am currently listening to…

The TV in the station is down today.  And the center is eerily quiet without the TV.  You never realize the near constant noise of life until it suddenly stops…

So I’m listening to Pandora (a rarity believe me, I much prefer Spotify but I can’t download that to work PC and the WiFi here is spotty so don’t want to use up my mobile data using it on my phone).

So I’m rocking to showtunes.  Yay for Broadway!

WickedHamiltonLes MisChicago, even The Music Man has come across.  I like it.  Only problem is it distracts me more than the TV did.  The instrumentals don’t as much so I might kick over to the Game soundtracks station I have.  We’ll see.  I like my Broadway so I’m OK for now.


A Day in the Life


The movie that most reminds you of your childhood.

Easy, Labyrinth.

David Bowie in classic 80’s rock hair and tights and singing?  Hell yeah!

Plus Henson muppetry?  No contest!

I’ve loved this movie since I saw it as a kid.  No matter what I do or where I go, a copy of this movie has come with me.  I’ve tried introducing it to DD but she’s too goldfish to sit for any movie yet.  She does stop and watch some of the muppetry parts of it (because she’s my kid and loves all things Henson-related).

I know every word of every song and every line.  The other day I actually was setting an alarm for work and it said “This alarm will go off in 9 hours and 23 minutes” and I turned it into “In 9 hours and 23 minutes you’ll be mine” (which is a line in the movie said by Bowie).

Since the big anniversary fell in the same timeframe, unfortunately, as Bowie’s death, there has been a lot of Labyrinth merchandise available that normally isn’t.  So for Christmas this year, my mom got me all the Funko Pop figures  (except one of the Jareth’s) and a little Ludo plushie.  Plus we got the extended blu-ray with the little book.  I was a happy geek.

A Day in the Life


Starting a 365 journal plan.  With my mother in law.  In the hopes that writing will help me stay sane and also get back some of my creativity.

What is your number one goal this year?

I don’t have a goal persé.  Although I guess you could say this is my goal.  Journaling.  And keeping up with it every day.  Because clearly, I’m bad at that part.

But this isn’t my only goal and I’m not even sure if you’d consider it my number 1 when ranking in importance.  I guess in that case I don’t have a number 1 goal.  I have lots of little goals but they all rank equally as important.

  1. Journal daily
  2. Get back into running (because I’ve been slacking off with everything going on)
  3. Pay off some of our debt/increase our savings account
  4. Get new appliances for our kitchen
  5. Start planning our Disney trip
  6. Get answers for Hubby’s health
  7. Get DD to be more effectively expressive/talking (working with our local PEID program on that one)
  8. Work on myself (health- & beauty-wise, as well as stress levels)
  9. Get back to cooking at home instead of ordering in or going out to eat

So getting back to journaling, I guess you could consider that goal #1 for the moment (Since I’ll likely be writing about all the other goals too).  I have several prompts saved on Pinterest so that I have my choice of what to write about if I have nothing going on to write about (which happens of course).

I think tomorrow I won’t need a real prompt as I’ll likely be venting about a couple of the things on my goals list which are partly why I didn’t write any entries between November and now.  (i.e., goals 6 & 7).
