There are a couple/few people in my life that these words really hold true for. . For Good - from Wicked
ELPHABA I'm limited: Just look at me - I'm limited And just look at you - You can do all I couldn't do, Glinda So now it's up to you (spoken) For both of us (sung) Now it's up to you:
GLINDA I've heard it said That people come into our lives for a reason Bringing something we must learn And we are led To those who help us most to grow If we let them And we help them in return Well, I don't know if I believe that's true But I know I'm who I am today Because I knew you:
Like a comet pulled from orbit As it passes a sun Like a stream that meets a boulder Halfway through the wood Who can say if I've been changed for the better? But because I knew you I have been changed for good
ELPHABA It well may be That we will never meet again In this lifetime So let me say before we part So much of me Is made of what I learned from you You'll be with me Like a handprint on my heart And now whatever way our stories end I know you have re-written mine By being my friend: Like a ship blown from its mooring By a wind off the sea Like a seed dropped by a skybird In a distant wood Who can say if I've been changed for the better? But because I knew you:
GLINDA Because I knew you:
BOTHI have been changed for good
ELPHABA And just to clear the air I ask forgiveness For the things I've done you blame me for
GLINDA But then, I guess we know There's blame to share
BOTH And none of it seems to matter anymore
GLINDA ELPHABA Like a comet pulled Like a ship blown From orbit as it Off it's mooring Passes a sun, like By a wind off the A stream that meets Sea, like a seed A boulder, half-way Dropped by a Through the wood Bird in the wood
BOTH Who can say if I've been changed for the better? I do believe I have been changed for the better?
GLINDA And because I knew you: ELPHABA Because I knew you:
BOTH Because I knew you: I have been changed for good.
Before going to rehearse with the organist for the wedding I played flute at today - - first time I've played a "gig" since I dunno. . .probably 2004ish - first time as a soloist at a wedding - ever I think. Goodness. :)
Jacob and Choco - Thursday night
The Fam before school a week or so ago
Solo shot before school
What I wore to the wedding today.
Just messing around taking pictures. . .imagine that!
My amazing salad I had for lunch today - grilled chicken, romaine, kale, squash, tiny cut up apple, carrots, cucumber!
So - -I kinda made a list - but I could only think of 25 things. And apparently I am too spastic to focus on one thing at a time. I HAVE started/made progress on: #25 - pick out a dream car/vehicle. . .so far I like the GMC Acadia the most. I did realize that I like Avalanches which GASP are 4-door trucks. Uh-oh. :) #20 - Develop an "About Me" document that is as inclusive as possible, as I try to figure myself out - -my wants, needs, hopes, etc. #3 - desk - I've started working on that. . .but yeah; lots more to go to get this thing cleared off!
A quick post between classes. . . There are 29 days before I go to Deming (AGAIN! YAY). I just had an idea that I should make a list of 29 things that need to be done (or SHOULD be done) before then, and do one each day. (In addition to my resolutions that I've been doing pretty good on). I'm thinking specific long-term house-work type things (ie - go through Jacob's clothes, purge, etc) and even some kinda-silly, but actually serious things (learn how to make not-life-changing decisions) and such.
It's you to me Your gentle face Overdue, worth the wait And out of my reach But I'm reaching out for you Me to the night I say goodbye The time is up I fight the time A needed award I can't afford A finished song One more cord
And it's already in my mind I'm in over my head inside And it's already in my mind Inside Inside
Everyone's back Hearts at war With all the plans I had before And I'm losing my grip But, I'd lose it all for you So I go driving all around And I'm denying all the sounds that hit my ear Drum the beat of a heart I can't defeat
And so it's already in my mind I'm in over my head inside And it's already in my mind Inside Inside
So. . .I went to the dentist today. Previously the dentist was a VERY scary experience for me, but today was actually no problem! YAY! And I LOVE what he did to my tooth. LOL. Maybe if I'm brave, I'll post before and after pictures soon. :)
On another "yay" note. . .I AM in fact going to Deming again. . .February 18-22. I fully expect to have an amazing time, and "we'll see" what happens.
I am in my LAST class for my Master's. I DO NOT WANT TO DO THE WORK. I know I will. I know I need to, but goodness, gracious, it's almost the last thing in the world I'd like to be doing. . .ok. . .I'm sure there are lots of things I would not want to do more than I don't want to do this, but still!!! Sigh.
So - a few minutes ago Jacob (who's in bed) was singing "Da-da-dee-dum- da-da dee da dum" (Disturbia by Rihanna) So. . .then I hear him switch to "Said Samuel, within five years, the night will be as day. . ." and right as I'm you know, filling with maternal pride about my 6 year old singing primary tunes (rather than Rihanna songs), I hear him continue, "And baby Choco will be born in a land far far away." :) Yeah. . .substituting in the name of the toy poodle instead of Jesus. He means no harm. LOL. :)
Ok - so tonight, I'm working on some stuff on the computer, and Jacob comes in and says, "listen to this" So he starts jumping up and down, and it sounds like he has a half-full water balloon under his shirt. I ask him, "what is that?" and he says, "My belly - I've been drinking lots of chocolate milk!" and he starts jumping, and sure enough, you can hear the sloshing. I lift up his shirt, sure enough, it's just his belly. So - - of course, I make a video. . .then I told him he should probably 1)quit jumping and 2)don't drink anymore for now. So - - turn up your sound, and enjoy. . .lol
