i know, i know, "keep calm" is tired...but this variation was apropos to the post, so had to include... (via this fantastic tumblr)
It's been a little bit of a comedy of errors in my world for the past few weeks...
Projects have imploded, plans have fallen through, ceilings have leaked in multiple places and muffins have been made sans baking powder...twice. I haven't written about it (until now), as I was going on the assumption that if I ignored them, the mishaps would just quietly skulk away...but no dice.
The latest in our string of bad luck? Audrey has a nice hearty case of strep throat, and while I was running into bathroom to grab her medicine this morning, I slipped on our hardwood floors, flew through the air and landed on Millie's metal baby doll cradle, banging up various body parts in the process. Actually it was such a crazy, slapstick fall that had it not hurt so badly, it definitely would have been comical.
Now I know this is majorly cliché, but the thing that's been easing us (me) through these spells of bad juju is to jump into the car with the girlies, roll down the windows and blast music... (The girls are key to this scenario as they dance like crazy in the car, which cracks me up, thus upping the feel-good factor significantly). And our tunes of choice are pretty much anything by Phoenix, but particularly "Lisztomania", or as Millie calls it, "the rhino song". We listen to it non-stop. Heavy repeat. It's a major happy maker.
But this rendition of it by PS22...well, it's feel-good off the charts. Watch this immediately. You can thank me later ;-)
