'Cause I Can

So I've decided to write another blog post.  No particular reason behind this decision, but I'm home, I recently finished a portion of homework, and as the title says...I can!  So interesting day today.  At work we had to discuss fetal demises, still births, non viable live births, and neonatal resuscitation.  That's sort of a depressing yet necessary topic that had to be covered.  The weird part about this is that I had a good day!  Do you think that makes me morbid/weird?!?  Oh well, I am ME and that's all I can be.  So my friend Kendra, who doesn't have a blog so I have to share this story for her, was on the Sounder train today when it apparently hit someone.  She ended up having to be stuck on the train for over 2 1/2 hours (I think, sorry if the time isn't exact) and over such a depressing thing to have happen.  Yet again, my good mood stayed.  I listened to some emotive (big word) instrumental music that my friend Seth sent me, and still my good mood stayed.  Fricking weird!  That's what that is.  So now I'm writing a blog post mostly because I don't want to do anymore homework, there is nothing on TV, and now you all have to read what I'm writing about.  Well you don't have to, but assuming you're here you're going to anyway because you want to know what I'm writing about.....
Speaking of nothing being on TV, watching Monty Python's Life of Brian.  Not normally something I would choose, but hey, here it is on my TV anyway.  So my other plan for the night (other than to take Kendra to her car which didn't happen cause they bus-ed people up to the park and ride) was to go to my sister's house and put the baby (yes Tiff I know she's 3 years old and Sarah had a baby that is younger, but Frances is still the baby to me) to sleep.  Why would I want to go put a 3 year old to sleep you ask?  SEE ABOVE people...I am weird.  I love singing her to sleep at night, after we read several books where she sometimes corrects me if I read it wrong or I don't say it with the voices/noises that her mama does.  And of course as I'm singing her to sleep if I try to hum the words she corrects me and tells me to sing it instead....thankfully when she falls into the first stage of her sleep she will let me hum it.  There are only so many times I can sing the 4 songs of my "Frances Night Time" repertoire before I just want to hum it.  Not to mention the fact that two of those songs I'm a little light on the lyrics in (which she thankfully doesn't know yet).
So I got tired of Monty Python, switched to Law and Order Criminal Intent.  I know I know, it's not SVU,  but it will do in a pinch.  Have you ever watched the London/UK/British version of Law and Order?  I've tried to watch it, can't really get into it the same way that I can the originals!  I'm sure you're all tired of reading my randomness for the night so I'll leave you with a song dedicated to a special someone...you know who you are!!

One and Only~Adele
You've been on my mind
I grow fonder every day,
Lose myself in time
Just thinking of your face
God only knows
Why it's taking me so long
To let my doubts go
You're the only one that I want

I don't know why I'm scared, I've been here before
Every feeling, every word, I've imagined it all,
You never know if you never try
To forgive your past and simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
Promise I'm worthy to hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance
To prove that I'm the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts

I've been on your mind
You hang on every word I say, lose yourself in time
At the mention of my name,
Will I ever know how it feels to hold you close?
And have you tell me whichever road I choose you'll go

I don't know why I'm scared 'cause I've been here before
Every feeling every word, I've imagined it all,
You never know if you never tried
To forgive your past and simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
I promise I'm worthy to hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance
To prove that I'm the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts

I know it ain't easy
Giving up your heart
I know it ain't easy
Giving up your heart

(Nobody's perfect, trust me I've learnt it)
I know it ain't easy, giving up your heart
(Nobody's perfect, trust me I've learnt it)
I know it ain't easy, giving up your heart

I know it ain't easy
Giving up your heart

So I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
I promise I'm worthy to hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance
To prove I'm the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts
Come on and give me a chance
To prove that I'm the one who can
Walk that mile until the end starts.
