Days Like These

I've had a very difficult time motivating myself today. The kids have been at my mother-in-laws for a few hours. Aside from a good run, I've been mostly useless. It's cloudy and grey here in NJ and that always gets me down. It's very hard to not wish myself in California lately. The weather here has been dreary all week. ALL WEEK, this weather. Am I repeating myself?

Thankfully, I am just about out the door to another delicious meal at said in-laws and I'll forget that there are only for days until Spring Break and I have nothing special planned yet to keep me from insanity during that extended time alone with the kids. The weather. Oh gawd, the weather.

To cheer myself I have been listening to some music while I clean and putter around the house. I bet you don't know this about me, but I love reggae and ska music. Oh, and jazz. Mixed together. Seriously. Stop laughing, I do. When I lived in CA, I developed a taste for it and it's my music of choice on days like today. The group that does this best is Cat Empire, who I saw live in San Diego several years ago. So, I thought I might share them with you in case you are feeling blue, or bored or are unpacking in a new house and miss me. Hi Angela!
