Life is a series of ups and downs, peaks and valleys, and I think I'm in a valley right now. Makes me think of that song by Aretha Franklin and George Michael, Knew You Were Waiting for Me... except who's waiting for me? They sing about the mountain being high and the valley being low...
But seriously... sometimes when you're in one of the valleys of life, it seems like you will never get out. You know you will, but that ride back up seems like it will never happen. Trying to stay positive gets more difficult each day.
I guess I am much more cynical now than I was as a young woman. Back then, I daydreamed about romance and chivalry. Now, I'm more practical.
One of the many reasons I feel as if I am in a valley, besides relationships and work, is that I was injured at work last week by a reckless student. It wasn't intentional, but it hurt. I've got the neck, shoulder, and back pain to prove it and the bruises on my upper leg. Colorful bruises. So I have to go back to the workman's comp doctor today. My school will cover me for an hour to go to my appointment. I think they should have given me a day or two off. But, no.
And speaking of valleys... Some good news is that I've found a delicious new snack! Nature Valley Biscuits with Peanut Butter. I don't know why they call them biscuits because they more like cookies, Nutter Butter type cookies, just a little less sweet. They're so good! They're by the granola bars at the grocery store.
And now, Coffee Chat!
Our lovely hostess asks...
What song reflects your mood right now?
Hmmm. I have a song above that speaks of mountains and valleys, but it's a little too upbeat for my current mood.
It took me a while to decide which song best suits my mood right now. I considered Simon and Garfunkel's Sound of Silence. And I thought about the Youngblood's Get Together. Two Pink Floyd songs came to mind: Wish You Were Here and Comfortably Numb. I finally settled on this one.
That's all for now!
