Starting my day off just right!
Every morning I leave my house the exact same time for work. 6:46 a.m. I cannot leave at any other time....I'm ocd like that. Pray for me. I always get to school before my friend Janet and I wait on her so we can walk inside together. We're weird like that. Pray for us. Now she does not suffer from any symptoms of ocd-ness at all. None, She might pull in school at 6:51 or 6:58 or 6:44...no set time whatsoever. aaaagggghhhh!!!! that is me ... gasping for air. I cannot live like that. I need and crave and demand a set routine. I am boring like that. Pray for me. So to kill the time every morning I change the channel on my radio. Yes, I still listen to the actual radio!!! Not Pandora or an i-phone or a playlist of some sort but the radio with live people on it that play songs of their choice. Imagine that! On the radio I mostly listen to K-LOVE or our local Christian station -WBFJ. If Piper and Savannah are in my car we listen to this great kids Sunday School songs on a cd. But in the morning while I am waiting on my friend I search around for some catchy song that I can sing and dance to while I am sitting in the car in the school parking lot. Needless to say, many school employees see and (at times) hear me singing. Because most mornings I roll down the windows and crank up the volume and serenade Janet as she is parking her car. She has been greeted by "Burning Down The House", "Brick House", "Boogie Fever", "Stayin' Alive", and "Midnight Train To Georgia" the past week or so. But this morning when I started my search I picked up an old Doobie Brothers song but it was almost over and then ppppppprrrrrrrr drumroll please... The best song ever to sing as loud as I can......"Jessie's Girl" by Rick Springfield. I sang my heart out I tell you. And of course....Janet was late and missed the whole concert I was performing. wwwwaaaahhhhh I cried I tell you. Cried! She was of course very sad and sorrowful that she missed out so I sang it for her without the accompaniment of Rick. I might not have started Janet's day off right but I sure did mine! Ssssshhhhhh...don't tell "Journey" but I think Janet may have stopped believin''. Pray for her!
