i want to wake up where you are

well, yesterday was monkey's first day as a third grader. she had a great day, and is excited about the school year. she's not sure if the teacher will let her test on Harry Potter or not, but she hopes she will. monkey is starting the fifth of the series, and is really enjoying them. she read eragon and was really excited about reading eldest, the sequel. she stopped after the first few pages. she said it was too sad. now as promised a quick blog about a song and my apron escapades. i should have finished my apron this weekend, but i made a mistake and am now furious with myself and the apron. yeah i know, it isn't the aprons fault that i misread the pattern. now on to the song on my playlist: it is slide by the goo goo dolls.

Could you whisper in my ear
The things you wanna feel
I'd give you anythin'
To feel it comin'

Do you wake up on your own
And wonder where you are?
You live with all your faults

I wanna wake up where you are
I won't say anything at all
So why don't you slide

Yeah, I'm gonna let it slide

Don't you love the life you killed?
The priest is on the phone
Your father hit the wall
Your ma disowned you

Don't suppose I'll ever know
What it means to be a man
It's somethin' I can't change
I'll live around it

I wanna wake up where you are
I won't say anything at all
So why don't you slide
Ooh, slide

And I'll do anythin' you ever dreamed to be complete
Little pieces of the nothin' that fall
Oh, May
Put your arms around me
What you feel is what you are
And what you are is beautiful
Oh, May
Do you wanna get married Or run away?

And I'll do anythin' you ever dreamed to be complete
Little pieces of the nothin' that fall
Oh, May
Put your arms around me
What you feel is what you are
And what you are is beautiful
Oh, May
Do you wanna get married
Or run away?

I wanna wake up where you are
I won't say anything

And I'll do anythin' you ever dreamed to be complete
(Yeah, slide)
Little pieces of the nothin' that fall
(yeah slide)
And I'll do anythin' you ever dreamed to be complete
(Yeah slide)
Little pieces of the nothin' that fall
(Oh, oh slide)
Yeah, slide between the sheets of all them beds you never knew
(Yeah slide)
Why don't you slide into my room
Just slide into my room
Oh, we'll run away, run away, run away


yes, i know the song is written about something not very happy, but every time i hear it i grin. this song came out around the time i got married. my nick name is bei, pronounced bay, so when finch would hear this he would sing to me "bei do you wanna get married, or run away." when we were driving to vegas to get married slide played on every radio station all the way there. now i have a question for you. what songs bring a smile to your face? i'll post the full story of bei and finch on sept. 12. that is the 10 year anniversary of our first date. hope you guys are having a great week.

I'm glad Monkey enjoyed her first day of school. My two girls did too. We're hoping for a good experience this year. Last year didn't turn out so good (bad teachers).

The one song that always makes me smile is Rikki Don't Lose That Number- Steely Dan. Showing my age here, but I can remember hearing it when it first came out. Just reminds me of good times as a kid.

I love that song. 'Sharks Patrol These Waters' by Morphine makes me smile! The night DH and I met it was playing on his 'mix' of songs ... long before iPods ;-) I've been hooked on him ever since.

Did a double check on the song title/artist (in case I peaked your curiosity - he he) The song is title is "Sharks". Now you have to go and have a listen ;-)

I'm sure it was ALL that naughty apron's fault! Teach it who's boss, and then ship it off!!
