My husband and I just finished watching VH1's Top 100 songs of the '90s. NOT suitable for children, but we really enjoyed it. We bet early on what song would be the number one - he went with the vague "something by Madonna" and I was absolutely certain it would be Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit". How could it be anything else? That song came out my freshman year in high school and still it sounds so wonderfully new - that's been 16 years ago, I think?
It's been a day - from the moment I clicked on my email this morning through the checking of the mail to the serving of canned Spaghetti O's for dinner - which really sums of the reality of life right now more than anything else could. My husband took the children out for a day of fun so I could clean house and wrap presents and instead I spent the entire day working on health insurance forms. I'd like to rant a little bit about that, but I won't. I'm trying to just get over it. I've had lots of practice just trying to get over it (an excellent motivation for going through natural childbirth is your insurance company saying they aren't going to pay for your epidural - those things aren't cheap). Really now. Don't get me started on health insurance.
But a couple of hours smiling with my husband both of us repeating, "I love that song." was just what I needed.
