Awful, Beautiful Life...

Well... I have a ton of catching up to do on here. Between Christmas and job searching I have had very little time to devote to spending time in others blogs. I am not ignoring you I promise, well not on purpose. I have a ton of post ideas that I just want to get out as well. Emotions and thoughts I am thinking and I will be putting these up as well over the next day. I head tomorrow to Dallas for a job interview I am incredibly excited about.

I just got back from Target because, believe it or not, I have done ZERO shopping this year. I realized why. Christmas shopping for kids and family alone SUCKS! So I bought QTips. LOL I think I am just going to give everyone QTips this year. OK not really, but sheeesh. I had a desire to find a christmas stocking with a monkey on it, just to have something in here that was in the Christmas Spirit. No luck. OH well, the search continues.

I made a choice today to not fall for the poor ol’ Traveling routine. So I made my time there as productive as I possibly could. Which was a positive. As I drove away from the Target a song came on the radio. While I have other blogs I want to post today, this is the first one and the lyrics, as they normally do, pounded me. I know, I know “Another lyric post?” And in answer I say yes, and if you were here I would stick my tongue out at you, just because I am feeling like being a trouble maker. Of course I would then run because you would be chasing me with a heavy piece of furniture and I am not fond of bruises left by heavy pieces of furniture.

Artist: Darryl Worley
Song: Awful, Beautiful Life

I woke up early with a poundin’ in my head
I’d been out the night before with all my friends
A little worried, kinda wonderin’ what I did
I said, “ Lord, please forgive me for my sins.”
My wife wanted to kill me, but she tried to save me first
“You’re goin’ if I have to drag your butt to church.”

I love this crazy, tragic,
Sometimes almost magic,
Awful, beautiful life

I read the hymns and kinda sorta sang along
And made it through the Sunday sermon wide awake
We met the family for dinner at our home
Drank some beer, watched a game, and cooked some steaks
My little brother had a big fight with his wife
And my poor mother sat between’em both all night

I love this crazy, tragic,
Sometimes almost magic,
Awful, beautiful life

We said a prayer for Cousin Michael in Iraq
We’re all aware that he may never make it back
We talked about the way we missed his stupid jokes
And how he loved to be a soldier more than most

I laid in bed that night and thought about the day
And how my life is like a roller coaster ride
The ups and downs and crazy turns along the way
It’ll throw you off if you don’t hold on tight
You can’t really smile until you’ve shed some tears
I could die today or I might live on for years

I love this crazy, tragic,
Sometimes almost magic,
Awful, beautiful life

Good luck on your job interview! Darryl Worley is a 'Great American' and an up and coming country singer. All of his songs resonate with real people as does this one!

Laying awake at night, thinking about the day, feeling the roller coaster of life...who hasn't experienced that last stanza?

No complaints about the lyrics from me, Trav.
I'll just wish you a good night's rest and good luck for that interview.

Own that interview Trav.

Still don't get the q-tip thing ... that's what car keys are for

S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s'i'odo il vero,
Senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo
