Topsy Turvey Mind- New Blog

For some time now I have been considering creating a blog dedicated to my joys and struggles as I try to live a "normal" life while dealing with severe depression.  For some reason, today was the day for that to start, so check it out if you want or don't.

 It will be very open and honest and I am really excited about having a space to get things out of my head and maybe help others struggling with the same things have a safe place to talk about how they are feeling.

This blog will remain to talk about the random goings on of my family.

Dear Older Generation

I sit at work and listen to the classic rock station that is a popular workplace radio station here in southern idaho and I have come to a frustrating conclusion. Many people in the generation before mine (not all) have a big problem with a lot of the popular music of today because of its racy lyrics and sexual inuendo. NEWSFLASH: listen to the lyrics of the music you deem, apropriate although it may not have the beat and synthesizers that our music does, a lot of it doesn't have squeaky clean lyrics either.

Case in point- the song that was just on - that my 50 yr old office manager, who does happen to have a huge problem with popular music, was just singing along too-

Close your eyes, make a wish
And blow out the candlelight
For tonight is just your night
We're gonna celebrate, all thru the night
Pour the wine, light the fire
Girl your wish is my command
I submit to your demands
I'll do anything, girl you need only ask

I'll make love to you
Like you want me to
And I'll hold you tight
Baby all through the night
I'll make love to you
When you want me to

And I will not let go
Till you tell me to

Girl relax, let's go slow
I ain't got nowhere to go
I'm just gonna concentrate on you
Girl are you ready, it's gonna be a long night
Throw your clothes on the floor
I'm gonna take my clothes off too
I made plans to be with you
Girl whatever you ask me you know I'll do


Baby tonight is your night
And I will do you right
Just make a wish on your night
Anything that you ask
I will give you the love of your life

No sexual subject matter there at all... Double standards and hypocrites bug me.

Roman on the open road!

The last few weeks have been quite adventurous for us. We have had lots of family come visit, finished the work on the outside of the house and Roman and I took a trip to visit Thor in Pheonix!
It was quite the trip and Roman did such a good job in the car for basically 6 days and almost melted in the Pheonix heat (there was of course an excessive heat advisory while we were down there) but ultimately survived and made lots of new friends all along the way.

We had so much fun with our friends and family. Thanks Hunter, Thor and Toni for letting us play! We love you guys!
PS. if you are in the Mesa area this weekend go check out the musical Curtains at MCC. My big brother is the "assistant" director and has worked so hard for the last few months. The show is amazing!
