Sometimes I feel like the Grinch. All the noise, noise, noise, noise! I spent over two hours getting my hair colored and cut this afternoon. As soon as I got home Heath said the kids were hungry so we all piled into the van for someone else to fix dinner. On the way home we stopped off at the grocery store where the kids talked incessantly about total nonsense. I was at the end of my mental rope barely holding on!

I went upstairs to fold laundry and listen to music. Pandora hooked me up bigtime. She started with a Rob Thomas song. I felt my blood pressure immediately drop as I visibly relaxed. The next song almost brought tears to my eyes.

I love this song. I closed my eyes and let the rest of my stress just melt away. It reminded me of the Sunday that Parker came running upstairs to let me know that my favorite song was on. I went downstairs where Pandora was playing Cristofori’s Dream. I sank into a chair. My eyes stayed shut and I felt transported to another world until the song was finished. Total bliss.

It’s been a good day. I cleaned my bathroom, did laundry including washing Gavin’s campfire smelling camping clothes twice, and transformed my hair back to its natural and former self. Rob Thomas crooning Ever the Same was the cherry on top.
