The things you forget...

I'm having a rough week. Exhausted with bedrest and frustrated with having to rely on DH for everything. Surely he is also sick of having to attend to my every need. Under normal circumstances, the division of labor in our home is quite equal - so this is all new.

He reminded me how good I have it today by bringing part of our past back to life. It is a song we wrote and recorded to distribute at our wedding. It is the story of how we met. Two summers after we wrote the song,we dreamed about reviving our "band" while we were living in Berlin for 4 months. We named the band after our favorite German beer: Bergadler. It means mountain eagle.

Anyhow, you can listen to our one hit her on the my.space page he made: http://www.myspace.com/bergadler

I am off to my folks for a few days in an attempt to calm my nerves. The blue walls of my room are closing in around me. I am bored, and a little angry. It'll be nice to be at the farm, see my nieces and nephews and have my own person chef (mom.) She spoils me something terrible.

Sorry you're feeling blah - sounds like some much needed time at mom's is in order! Enjoy your pampering!

sweet song sweet memory. My husband and I still occasionally have an extra beer and find ourselves singing with guitars in hand. We recreate the songs we wrote while young and in love/lust....fun!
oh and I think you look perfect! I always carried small and, at times, let others make me feel insecure in my baby making. Screw them!

I hope that you have a good change of scenery at your mom's. Sorry about the blah and icky feeling. It must seem like a roller coaster most days. Hmmm - beer sounds good right now. Someday you and I will find a way to kick back a few cold ones, okay? ((hugs))

I'm so sorry to hear that you're in a funk. Hopefully things will start to turn around this week. If not, let me know and we can be beeotchy together, ok? :)

Fun! Thanks for sharing the link to the song. What a cool memory. Are you the guitar player, or is hubs?
