Featured Song of the Week: Breakdown, Jack Johnson

Hi All-

I'm keeping this Sunday's blog short (in theory---I can never be short when rambling)... Quite frankly, I'm mentally drained. My job has been kicking me in the backside for three solid weeks and I don't see it subsiding anytime soon. My weekends right now are incredibly precious....precious...my precious...

I've done some housekeeping around here. I've given up on having a playlist for now. I've killed some stuff I don't use. Cleaning is good... mindless, methodical work is good... yes... very good...

I have added some blogs to a few of my blogrolls-- especially the "have some more coffee" blog roll. I've been reading a lot of mil blogs and mom blogs... go figure... I really like this gal at Mommy Needs Coffee.

I discovered Diane had really cool stuff when I was checking out Joshua's plaid flannel. Check out Diane's radioblog... nice mix of older stuff... Both these folks are just as nice as can be.

Please visit my dear friends Master Jedi Rob and Wonder Woman. Both will be brilliant and witty and wonderful.

Go visit Michael and tell him I told you to stop by. Who is he? He is the love my life. Thank God I have him.

I'm all right... I'm tired... and when I'm tired, I'm emotional...usually angry and foul mouthed... but now I'm just weepy... What the hell?? My wiring right now is frantic...I don't know how to "turn off" work sometimes... Thanks to Coffee and Varnish... click on the link below. It sums up what has been happening at work...and subsequently in my brain.... just wish it were this tidy... I stared at this for wow... a long time....



I hope this old train breaks down
Then I could take a walk around
And, see what there is to see
And time is just a melody
All the people in the street
Walk as fast as their feet can take them
I just roam through town
And though my windows got a view
The frame im looking through
Seems to have no concern for me now
So for now

I need this here
Old train to breakdown
Oh please just
Let me please breakdown

This engine screams out loud
Sayin the beat gunna crawl westbound
So I dont even make a sound
Cause its gunna sting me when I leave this town
All the people in the street
That i'll never get to meet
If these dont bend somehow
And I got no time
That I got to get to
Where I dont need to be
So I

I need this here
Old train to breakdown
Oh please just
Let me please breakdown
I need this here
Old train to breakdown
Oh please just
Let me please breakdown
I wanna break on down
But I cant stop now
Let me break on down

But you cant stop nothing
If you got no control
Of the thoughts in your mind
That you kept in, you know
You don't know nothing
But you don't need to know
The wisdoms in the trees
Not the glass windows
You cant stop wishing
If you don't let go
But things that you find
And you lose, and you know
You keep on rolling
Put the moment on hold
The frames too bright
So put the blinds down low

I need this here
Old train to breakdown
Oh please just
Let me please breakdown
I need this here
Old train to breakdown
Oh please just
Let me please breakdown
I wanna break on down
But I cant stop now


I'll leave you with some pictures from our trip up to Amish Country last weekend.... Have a great week everyone!!

It's SUNDAY - Hello Cathy - should have stopped and said hi when you passed! (give or take 30 miles) Great SUNDAY rhythm! Too bad it's asking for permission to "Break Down?!" Don't work too hard. Think you have the right idea here - only post once a week - it makes for better posts! ;-)

I am LOVING the Jack Johnson song! Good pick... he's one of my favs.

Happy Sunday Cathy, kick back relax!

There's no relaxing for me today, it's my oldest's 7th B-day and I'll be probably be singing this song in my head by this afternoon when there are a million kids bouncing off of eachother in the big jumpy slide thing of a ma jiggy we rented. At least they're going to get worn out!

Anyway... good to hear from you, you help make Sunday special.
