Stronger

19 Mar

I really love it when I come across a song that perfectly expresses something I’m feeling.  Something to get your week started on the right note:

______

You know the bed feels warmer Sleeping here alone You know I dream in color And do the things I want

You think you’ve got the best of me Think you’ve had the last laugh Bet you think that everything good is gone Think you left me broken down Think that I’d come running back Baby, you don’t know me, ’cause you’re dead wrong

Chorus: What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger Stand a little taller Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter Footsteps even lighter Doesn’t mean I’m over ’cause you’re gone

Bridge: What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger Just me, myself and I What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger Stand a little taller Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone You heard that I was starting over with someone new They told you I was moving on, over you You didn’t think that I’d come back I’d come back swinging You tried to break me, but you see

Chorus: What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger Stand a little taller Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone What doesn’t kill you makes a fighter Footsteps even lighter Doesn’t mean I’m over ’cause you’re gone

Bridge: What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, stronger Just me, myself and I What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger Stand a little taller Doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone

Thanks to you I got a new thing started Thanks to you I’m not the broken-hearted Thanks to you I’m finally thinking ’bout me You know in the end the day you left is just my beginning In the end

I’m not alone

Sharing is caring, so one for you and one for me:

Pint of Guiness

May the lilt of Irish laughter
lighten every load.
May the mist of Irish magic
shorten every road…
And may all your friends remember
all the favours you are owed!

It’s finally done! Not bad for a first garment if I do say so myself.

Enjoying my Thanksgiving Weekend.  Much to be thankful for.  Visited Grandpa @Holy Cross cemetery with family and had a fabulous K-bbq lunch/dinner.


Which Hogwarts house will you be sorted into?

Wow.. didn’t expect that one. I’d always thought I’d be Griffindor

LMAO:

Living through it

27 Feb

Got to bed late on Friday night.  Watching TV and playing online.  I’d probably slept for only 1 hour before the shaking started.  Shook hubby’s arm, “KH, earthquake!”  He was already awake and alert like me.  At first I figured I’d just wait for the shaking to stop then go back to sleep.  My usual quake MO.  About 30 seconds into it when the smaller ones usually stop this one kept going and got stronger.  It was like someone hit the turbo or something.  Both of us realized at this point it was a big one.

We were rolling and bouncing around on the bed like someone put marbles in a box and shook it.  The wall behind us starts making cracking sounds and bits of the wall stuff fall on us while we hear something crash.  Later we discovered this was our bookcase in the bedroom.  Once the shaking stopped we sat stunned.  It was so eerie.  It was dead quiet.  No cars driving by.  Nothing.  We checked that each other was okay and I ventured off the bed to promptly step on a fallen picture frame and break the glass.  After we getting our wits about us and our shoes on we got the flashlight and checked around the apartment.  Miraculously the bookcase was the only thing that fell over and the picture frame I stepped on the only thing that broke.

After a few minutes of wandering around KH suggested we go downstairs to the lobby to check with other people.  I wasn’t too happy about this but agreed.  I was always taught that it was safer indoors after a quake provided your building was relatively sound.  About half the building was out front or in the lobby.  No cell phone or land line service.  Everyone was worried about family and friends elsewhere.  Our building has a generator  (as do most in the neighborhood where I live.) Finally after waiting a few hours in the lobby we were given the okay to go back up.  Sleep was elusive and aftershocks constant.

Being from So Cal I’m fairly accustomed to earthquakes.  All things considered I’m somewhat surprised that I wasn’t at all scared during this whole event.  Registering 8.3 where we are and seeming to go on for ages, I think I’m going to be able to face any earthquake without blinking an eye now.

We’re okay
