Todd Snider and Hard Working Americans

I love this guy. He's kind of the unofficial "spokesperson" for East Nashville, a funky little part of town where a lot of the singer/songwriters live and an area in town that the hub and I love. We're even thinking about hanging up the suburban life for a little spot in the city at some point. If, that is, I can get my shit together enough to get the house ready to put on the market. Ugh.

I love me some Todd Snider. His personality is so refreshing--whether he is telling a story or singing a song, he always throws in that genuine ear-to-ear grin which is very contagious. You can feel the love he has for writing and his audience.

His humility should humble the best of musicians. 

Watch out Jack (White), I have a new BF.

A New Year, A New Beginning

It's been a while, I admit. I had really lost all interest in blogging. That's after eight years of writing. 

Now, being an empty nester--yes, I am--I need something to fill my thoughts other than nothingness. Funny how almost overnight you lose your identity. People ask, "What do you do for a living?" Well, guess I'm no longer a stay-at-home mom. Now what. I need to find an identity. Took an entire year off--nothingness.

Now, I'm up. 

I hibernated in January. It was not my time to begin anew.

February, it's time to awake.

It's time to reinvent myself. What better way then to start taking care of the inside. I fell off the wagon with my three-year diet. Have gained quite a bit of weight in the last year.

So, today, I'm starting anew. Incognito blogging, again. Too many unwanted "acquaintances" and family found my other blog. Thanks hub for telling everyone! Geeeesh. It's a funny feeling when folks that don't think too highly of you, nor you of them, is following you, like every day, on your blog. I need to move on from that. That kind of blew my mind. 

Those of you who do know me and this blog, I welcome you, of course. Big hugs.
