TaLkIn TuEsDaY

Today shouldn't be called talkin Tuesday it should be called thinking Tuesday. Lately I have been doing a lot of thinking about memories. How interesting memories can be. I have been thinking about some good some bad some old and new. What triggers memories for me is a song, a movie or even a picture. If I hear or see it, I can almost go back to that memory and know what was going on or what I was doing. Especially with songs, I don't know why. I do love music and all kinds but almost any song especially from my past I have a memory too. Some times it will make me happy and sometimes sad and not always a bad sad just "oh how I miss those days". For example any song I hear on Light FM 100 that's older it makes me think of my parents and my childhood. It will take me back to that "time" or that certain memory. It also reminds me of what great parents I have and what a fun childhood I really had that sometimes I want to go back and wish I was little again.Karen Carpenter will always remind me of my mom and Christmas and how she always tried to make us have the best Christmas's ever and how that was the one time of year Jamie and I actually got along....lol and every love song from the early 80's reminds me of how my dad feels about our mother because he would say "oh I used to sing this to your mom when we were dating" or "this is how I feel about your mom"......so sweet!(sorry I can't remember all the songs or I would tell you but if I heard it I would know and that's my whole point) Or how the whole Alanis Morisette soundtrack "Jagged Little Pill" reminds me of going to Cali in the 7th grade with my family and Jen Kirkland's family. We rented a Van and they played her songs on the radio all the time. Or everytime I hear Natalia Imbruglia song "Torn" it reminds me in the 9th grade when my first boyfriend and love broke up with me and a few days later I got really sick with the flu. I had fallen asleep that night on the couch watching music videos I am sure on VH1 and I woke up at like three in the morning and that music video was on so now everytime I hear it that's what I think of. Or any rap song from the late 90's early year 2000 reminds me of Highschool and school dances mostly about my good friend Cammi and some others friends. Or Sarah McClaughlin "Building a Mystery" reminds me of driving up to Park City the fall after I graduated with an old friend and talking while listining to that CD the whole way up. Or how Jann Arden reminds me of the fun times in Jr. High having sleepovers at my friend Jenna's house (remember Kristi) and how much fun we had and how much Jenna loved Jann Arden (for those that don't know who she is she sings the one hit wonder "Insensitive" the whole soundtrack is actually good though or was) and we would watch Bed of Roses over over and over again and we all loved the song from the movie soundtrack "Independent love song" and thought that's how love should be. Anyway there are so many songs and so many more memories but I was just thinking lately about how funny my brain is when it does that and all the time too but its ok I like it, I like to remember the fun, happy, silly, laughable, sad and stupid times I had and all the great people and friends I have met and that have come in and out of my life that have helped make these memories. I know I probably have a song or something that reminds me of each of you especially if it was from Jr. High or Highschool and since I can't write a memory about all of you, if you want when you leave a comment today you can maybe post a memory that we share or something that makes you think of me and then if at the time I can think of it I will respond a memory or song that makes me think of you. Thanks all for reading my ramblings every Tuesday until next time...........


PS Happy Veterans Day! Thanks to all that have served us in the past and the present in fighting for our country for your freedom and my freedom, Thanks again!

That is so funny about Alanis Morrisette. B/c the first time I heard "One hand in my pocket" Jen Kirkland was seranading me at her house. It will always make me think of her. But, the other day a song came on and it reminded me of you. But, now i can't think of what it was. But, truth be told TONS of songs remind me of you. Madonna will remind me of our "streaking days" oh man.... good times!!!

Now that you mentioned it, we should all get together for a girls night and watch Bed of Roses! And I've got too many songs that TOTALY remind me of you and Junior High to count! But to name a few artist.....Salt n' Peppa, TLC, En Vogue, Shania Twain (Any man of mine)!!!! Haha, remember we used to use my moms weights as microphones and sing in my basement! Good times!

Well... I don't have a song that reminds me of you but I do have a particular song that I can not stand to hear to this day. I had morning sickness so bad with Kailey and the song that Leanne Rhymes sings, "How can I live without you", makes me want to puke everytime I hear it. I love music also. I also thought it was interesting the you grew up on the Carpenters. My Dad always played their Christmas Potrait soundtrack at Christmas time over and over. I love that CD.
