Today was Friday – 9/23/2011. Songs that most closely matches my mood = “Be Somebody”, Kings of Leon; and “Breathe”, Michelle Branch. I’m feeling happy, blessed, and wanting to dance. These songs are in my head not for their words or meaning, but because of their vibe.
I’m at my brother’s in Charlotte, NC right now. Well, actually it’s about 20 miles or so north of Charlotte in a little town called Denver. Pretty much all I did today was get up, shower, pick up my rental car, and drive here. I got here at around 9p, and just hung out with Lee Jay, James, Mom, Vickie, and Cooper (Lee Jay’s dog). Never met a dog I like as much as I like Cooper, and for some reason he really likes me too. He freaks out with giddiness when I visit. Most dogs don’t take to me like this – I guess they can sense I’m more of a cat person. I guess Cooper can tell we’re all family. We hang – he’s my bud.
We didn’t do much tonight except sit around and talk. I tossed a football around with James and Lee Jay. We sat up and watched the TV – watching 80’s movies all night on HBO and Cinemax. Right now the flick “Legend” is on – the fantasy movie with Tom Cruise, Mia Sara, and Tim Curry. I LOVE this movie. However, it also pouring the rain right now and the satellite keeps going out. Bummer.
Everyone had to go to bed fairly early tonight, because James has a soccer game at 9 in the morning. Ugh lol! I’m glad we didn’t have games on Saturdays when I was a kid. Saturdays was cartoon day when I was very young, but when I got to around James’ age it was more like sleep day lol. Which is what it is for me now as well. 🙂
So it’s been a great day, really. It took 5 hours to get here (usually it’s a 3.5 to 4 hour drive), but I didn’t mind because I had my music going. Then once I got here, it’s just been family time. I don’t take these days for granted like I did when I was younger. Once you spend so much time away from your family, which I do being in Atlanta by myself, you treasure these times. I can’t wait for us to spend more of this time together tomorrow. James also has a baseball game tomorrow at 3p, which is far more temporally acceptable for me hahaha. We’re gonna have fun there. Then we’re going to eat some wings and/or some pizza at this sweet ass sweet local pizza place here. Then WVU plays LSU, and that game will kickie assie! I’m hoping we play a bit of texas hold em as well. Then Sunday we will of course be watching NFL football all day – woo hoo!
Well, it’s bedtime for me, folks. Until next time – when I will share it all with you After The Fact!
