Harley's, etc.

on January 24, 2006 - 3:03pm

I'm doing so good writing in this everyday. I hope I keep it up. I'm back at work today after a long weekend. I've been at the Eye Center for 12 years and I love it. I quit for awhile to be home with my kids. Then all of a sudden they didn't act like they needed me much anymore and I became extremely bored. I was able to go back part-time so it works well. My husband has been a police officer for 20 years. We sound old but we are only in our 30's. Got an early start I guess. Robert makes fun of me for liking Josh Groban. When I read online that Josh likes Harley's I think that won him over. We are big Harley people. Robert says riding a Harley is like "prozac" to him. It keeps him sane. I love riding with him. It's liberating. He ride's a police Harley at work as well. He's in HOG heaven. Pardon the pun. I'd love to see Josh on a Harley - that would be fun!

Circle of friends

on January 23, 2006 - 5:09am

Yesterday I went to a funeral for a friend at work whose boyfriend just died. He went in for a routine gallbladder removal. They found cancer. They had to remove his pancreas. He died less than 2 weeks later. Just like that. So fast and final and so very young. We are all 30ish/40ish in our circle of friends at work. What I appreciated the most from everyone was their love. Everyone rushed to her and just sat there on the front rows of that chapel in the funeral home. I'm thankful for those people, my "work" friends.

A lesson in Banjos

on January 21, 2006 - 4:34pm

I was watching some more of LATG video today. That one song where the guy plays the banjo in it was awesome. Who knew that a banjo could be used in a NON country song. Can you tell I'm a little sheltered musically? I live near Dollywood for petes sake. We get lots of banjo playing there.
Watched a great movie the other night. "Dragonfly" with Kevin Costner. It was a thriller. I really enjoyed it. Not sure what kind of reviews it received, but I'd recommend it.

New member of FOJG

I joined the club today. A belated birthday gift to myself from October. Just recently fell in love with Josh's music after hearing a preview in the movie theater. I came home and searched the web for him. Went out and bought his CD's. Yesterday I bought LATG. I've really enjoyed the behind the scenes footage of the DVD. Josh is hilarious with his sense of humor. It reminds me of my husbands. Always a nut. I'm trying to get him to like Josh Groban. He says he's not sure about someone that can't sing in English. "What is he really saying" he asks. I reply "Can't you just appreciate the musical talent there?" We like to give each other a hard time. He has a complete obsession with Harley Davidson, so he can't say anything to me about my hobbies. He promised to go to a concert with me when the new CD and tour begins. Ok, I'm off for now. I like this journal........but I'm not sure about posting very much. Every journal I've ever had, I go back and burn it. We'll see.....
