Today’s prompt from The Daily Post: When your feeling down, what songs do you want to hear to cheer you up?
Music makes the world go round…….. I don’t know about the rest of you but if I am in a certain mood there is certain music I do not care to hear at that time. Music may also determine my mood. If I sit in my bedroom and listen to “Lonesome Me” all day long, I am more than likely going to be depressed as h#)) for the rest of the day! Music without a doubt can alter your mood or state of mind.
So, what do I listen to when I am feeling blue? Here is my list of top songs sure to cheer me up and pick me up! Who knows? I may even pull a Tom Cruise in my own living room floor. Once I get started, I might even pull a Tom Cruise in YOUR living room floor! Never can tell………..
Last night, I went to hang out with two friends who are very near and dear to me. I ended up spending the night at their house. This morning a pang of anxiety hit. I love these two people but I started longing for home. Finally, it hit me. Every night, I put the kids to bed and afterwards take a long hot bubble bath. I lay there and float till the water cools. I let the water drain partly out and refill with the hottest water along with more bubbles. I asked my friend if she minded if I take a bubble bath know she did not care. As I layed there in the tub, I relaxed. My anxiety went away. What I did not do was use the hottest of water and fill their tub twice. I would not dare. The idea strikes me that my nightly bubble baths are one of my guilty pleasures. Urban Dictionary defines a guilty pleasure as something a person enjoys often while said person morally believes the practice to be wrong, abnormal, improper, or incorrect. I’m not sure I like the definition. If we enjoy doing something, we should not feel guilty about it. Right?
What are some of your guilty pleasures? Here are 10 of mine. I wonder if any of yours are the same as mine?
Taking my nightly bubble bath as I described above. This is by far, my most favorite guilty pleasure. I could probably cut our water bill in half if I did not refill the tub. It is just so relaxing.
Facebook and Zynga Texas Hold em Poker. My day is not complete till I check Facebook and the house is quiet enough to get in a few hands of poker.
Working out in my living room at mid-night half-naked. I do not know what it is that appeals to me about this nightly ritual but I cannot help myself.
Chocolate Milk. I try to only eat 1000 calories per day. Yet, I can’t seem to resist some good ol Chocolate milk.
Sleeping naked on the weekends. When my kids are at their dads house on the weekends. I am sleeping butt naked. I love it,.
AcroChallenge I play this game in the adult room only. I love this game and have to have daily dose. I play in the adult room. The game gives you some letters. Everyone types in a dirty sentence then votes for the best. It gets crazy. For example: tham Tonight, Hump At Moms.
Panties and Lingerie. I love my panties and soft silky lacy lingerie. I will buy these before I buy clothes.
Blue-Grass Music. People think I am insane. Who cares? I love it!
Cut your cable bill. Do you really need that many channels anyway?
Reduce your bills. Ask your service providers if they have bundled services. The best way is to only have the things you really need.
Don’t impulse shop. Never go shopping when you are depressed. Never go to the grocery store hungry. Make a list of the things you want and wait 2 weeks. If you still want something on your list than budget for it.
Work for yourself. Find something you really like to do and figure out a way to make money at it.
Wear your clothes longer. Easier said than done for me. Salvation Army is wonderful. I am lucky because I live in Scottsboro, Alabama which is home to Unclaimed Baggage!
Cut down on your food costs. Make meals at home. Do not go out to eat.
Cut back on cell phone usage. Most people have internet either at work or home use it instead.
Put it in the bank. Do you have at least 3 months income saved in case of emergency? If not stop spending and save.
Don’t feed bad habits. Especially gambling and drinking. Do you smoke? I figured out my cigarette bill and I could have taken my kids to Disneyland at least once per year already which would have been one item marked off my bucket list!
Use condoms. Kids are expensive……. Thats so awful. I love my children they are a gift from God! If you are young and single, you may want to think about this one!!
What in the world attracts us women to “bad boys?” It must be the thrill of the excitement. After 4 years of a on and off again relationship, Journalist Christina Mclarty will finally walk down the isle. Waiting at the end to take her hand in marriage? Joe Francis, the one and only Girls Gone Wild founder. I remember when I walked down the isle….. for one split second I almost turned and walked in the opposite direction. God only knows if I had to do all over again, I would have. RUN CHRISTINA! RUN!! It’s only fun for awhile!
collecting your jar of hearts and tearing love apart your gonna catch a cold from the ice thats in your soul so don’t come back for me who do you think you are…………
You go Christina Perri! Is all I have to say about that!! Awesome song!! Jar of Hearts is a single which was released on June 11, 2010. The song was played on “So You Think You Can Dance.” This song has powerful lyrics and Christina Perri has a unique voice. Jar of Hearts is beautiful! Listen!!
Wonder Woman has a new look people and personally I don’t like it! I’ve been surfing the net again taking a break from online college classes that are driving me nuts!!
For Wonder Woman’s 600th issue, she finally gets a makeover? Personally, I think they should have just left the old look in place. Besides, Wonder Woman’s old costume brings back some rather fond memories for myself and an old friend of mine. Dave Wilson, an artist, and a very good one at that and I were neighbors at one time. Myself, I like to write and I was always reciting my poetry to him to see what he thought. This one night….. I was looking for a little more than just reciting poetry. It was right after 9/11 and in Birmingham, Alabama there were people on the side of the road selling everything red, white, and blue. What did I find? My very own Wonder Woman costume. I put it on underneath a trench coat and went to his house to recite my latest poem and then some. You should have seen his face! So, please don’t change her outfit!! Look at it…. who the hell can fight in a coat anyway?
