Everyday life can be a soul sucking drag. It can be Groundhog Day over and over and I've never been a fan of that movie. Side question, is any girl? I only know guys who list it in their top ten. Everyday life is the same thing, the dishes get dirty, the clothes get piled, the table gets papered, and some days it's kind of overwhelming and I want to run away to the beach and sip tasty adult beverages while my book lays in my lap, unread, because I'm too busy doing nothing.
Yesterday seemed like one of those everyday blahs, but my husband asked me to tell him one thing that was good about my day.
My first thought was to snap, "Nothing!" and then I remembered a certain baby niece of mine dancing her heart out to Kanye West's "Gold Digger," and I couldn't help but smile and laugh. Playing different music to an adorable baby to see which makes her boogie isn't everyday life....but maybe it should be. Even today, the memory of her not moving to "All the Single Ladies" but bopping to "Posse On Broadway" makes me happy, and that's with a kitchen sink full of every cup we own and a work day when I was supposed to be off.
Everyday is for dancing babies. Ally McBeal might have been on to something....
