The Calm Night for Me to Rock Out On!

Last night I decided that we all should go to the Chinn Center to watch the kids' swim lessons. Jonny didn't like it but his brother and sister have waited 3 to 4 hours watching him during gymnastics competitions. Jonny and I went to the library next door before we met back up at the Chinn center. I was upset because once again I turned in a book and the library didn't check it in. This has happened so many times and every time I confront a librarian about it they always look at me like I am nuts. That is until i prove that they didn't check my books in.

Viki is able to swim the length of the pool now and is doing a great job. I was so proud of her. Aron is learning to float on his back. I can tell he is still scared. Jonny fussed that he was bored the whole time. I took him to watch a racquetball game that was going on in another room.

We had taco night at home, one of the kids favorite meals. Aziz didn't want tacos so he cooked his own meal. It looked wonderful and Aziz did a great job. He used leftover chicken, pierogies,  and pepppers. It looked like a meal that I would have made and it took some creativity. I was real proud of him. The kids cleaned up the kitchen with no fighting.

Aziz and I played old 1990's music for the kids to show them that Lady Gaga is not original. We played Ace of Base and Madonna. It is amazing how much Lady Gaga copies Madonna. Watch a Madonna video from the early 1990's (during her sexual experimentation phase) and it looks almost exactly like Lady Gaga. If I was that desperate for money, I could have just copied Madonna and made millions? All I had to do was dye my hair blond and where weird clothes and sing about sex and Italy and be world famous? Oh,  yeah you have to kiss a girl to for the plan to work. Ask Katy Perry, it worked for her!

I am a cheerleader for bringing back classic rock. You know where music was dominated by bands who were accomplished at their instrument. You could make lists of the best guitarists, bassists, drummers and even vocalists. Those old rock vocalists would beat out any pop singer any day.

So I gave my kids a music lesson and then sent them off to do their homework. It was a wonderful quiet night.

Overprotective Mom's Guide to Pop Music this Week

I have 2 teens and so I try to keep up with what is going on in music. I want to know what my kids are listening to. I also need to be aware of what songs are playing on the radio while my kids are in the van. I listened to the Top Ten pop songs on the Billboard chart and wrote down my impressions of the songs.

My son asked me one afternoon, "Mom, why is Ariana Grande walking side to side?' I usually don't listen to the words and focus on the beat and melody so I was surprised that he caught what the lyrics were. The song he is referring to is "Side to Side" by Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj. I've heard that song around 200 times over the last couple of months. I just figured she was dancing with some guy and they were swaying side to side like you do at church dances. Well, I found out what it really means, prompted by my son's question. She's had sex with a guy all day and all night so she's so sore she walks side to side. (Vomit) Now I ch…

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made.

It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of wast…

Writer's Block

I usually have great ideas to write about especially if I am not under any pressure. Writer's block is horrible. I've had it at times, especially when I am busy or distracted. It's rare that it happens to me. 
What if I finally published a novel? It became popular and fans wanted a sequel. My anxiety would kick in like a huge block of ice, blocking my flow. What if I disappoint my fans? What if I can't repeat my previous success? Doubt will eventually lead to writer's block. Years go by and I still haven't published anything. Everyday I open up my computer and stare at a blank screen. I distract myself by going to Reddit or Twitter and discuss things like feminism in Star Wars and the worst sunburn I've ever had. 
One day I decide that I need to take my writing seriously. I put on some headphones and play white noise to try to clear my head while walking through a city park. The static masks the sounds of life and I am able to sit on a bench and clear my mi…
