dANciNG mAchINeS...

During the day I keep the TV off while Owen is awake. I swore that I would not raise one of "those" kids who all they want to do it watch TV, play video games, & do NOTHING. So, while Owen is up I always have my iPOD playing with various artists playing. Typically I have either Billy Joel, Elton John, Beatles, Brandi Carlile, or my "FAVS" on.

Now while the music is on Owen either does this little dance, I sing (I know, scary thought, or hold him while I sing & we dance). He absolutely LOVES this!!! He has a huge smile on his face and a couple of giggles come out every now and then. I am not sure if he is laughing at the motion or my horrible singing. :D If someone ever saw us through the window they might think I need to be in a nut house. If Owen loves it, I do too! While dancing, one of my FAV songs by Billy Joel Came on...Only The Good Die MUST read the lyrics. SOOO true!!!

Come out Virginia, don't let me wait
You Catholic girls start much too late aw
But sooner or later it comes down to fate
I might as well be the one

well, They showed you a statue, told you to pray
They built you a temple and locked you away
Aw, but they never told you the price that you pay
For things that you might have done.....
Only the good die young
thats what i said only the good die young x2

You might have heard I run with a dangerous crowd
We ain't too pretty we ain't too proud
We might be laughing a bit too loud
aw But that never hurt no one

So come on Virginia show me a sign
Send up a signal I'll throw you the line
The stained-glass curtain you're hiding behind
Never lets in the sun
Darlin' only the good die young
woahi tell ya
only the good die young x2

You got a nice white dress and a party on your confirmation
You got a brand new soulmmmm, And a cross of gold
But Virginia they didn't give you quite enough information
You didn't count on me
When you were counting on your rosary (oh woah woah)

They say there's a heaven for those who will wait
Some say it's better but I say it ain't
I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints
the Sinners are much more fun...
you know that only the good die young
oh woah baby
i tell ya
only the good die young, X2

You say your mother told you all that I could give you was a reputation
Aww She never cared for me
But did she ever say a prayer for me? oh woah woah

Come out come out come out virgina dont let me wait,
You catholic girls start much too late
Sooner or later it comes down to fate
I might as well be the one,
You know that only the good die young

I'm telling you baby
You know that only the good die young
Only the good die young
Only the gooooooooooooooood
Only the good die young
Only the gooooooooooooooood
Only the good die youngOoooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooo oooooooooo...

It so so darn HOT here I think I am going to die! Not to mention it is ONLY June 9th...what am I going to do for the rest of the summer? Stay in, sing, dance, and a lot of story time with Owen. Sounds like a plan to me. Today we did venture out early this morning to Walgreens, SunTrust, Target (the other love of my life), Kohls, & Chick-Fil-A (for some good ol' sweet tea). I promise once we got home I thought for a brief second I need to take another shower. It is TOOOOOOO hot here.

In the process of "going green" we have started recycling, eating all organics, & trying to be more conscious about our ONLY Earth. We keep certain items in certain containers ie. the plastic bottles go in the tub, paper in the box, & cardboard in the bag. When I am doing laundry, I have to take all the recycling off the machines and put it in the kitchen floor. Well, it never fails that Owen gets the bottle container, takes them out & puts them back in, & pushes it through out the house. Today was no different...he is trying to be kind to our Earth.

Girlie's, I am off to pick up the house, decide what I am fixin' for dinner, relax, read some on my book & take a nice LONG break while Owen is FINALLY sleeping.
