Another Music Moves Me Monday song!!! Glee Cast - Loser Like Me (Glee Cast Version)

Monday, Monday, oh what a day!

I just had to share the Michael Franti & Spearhead song "The Sound Of Sunshine" with you all again! It came to my mind after my son left for school, and I was trying to get motivated (especially after working last night!). Sometimes I just need to hear a song on a day off,  after a long and crazy night at work! It calms our birds and gets me feeling good! I'm thinking about watching some Glee shows later on, while I have the house to myself! Maybe even paint my fingernails! And of course do some cleaning or laundry! What mom doesn't do laundry? I don't see any hands raised out there! :O)

I try to catch some tv some night before I go to work after hubby and son have gone to bed, but that wasn't the case last night! Son snuck into the family room, and decided that he would forego a bit of sleep and choose to catch a bit of PanAm. We watch some ABC shows, and have seen the commercials for PanAm. I didn't think that it would be a show that son would want to watch. Boy, was I wrong! He watched a bit of it with me before I left (whew, the captains were so cute!!), and I recorded it on the dvr. After I got home this morning while he was getting ready for school, we watched some of it, and will probably finish it tomorrow morning. The show's definitely interesting, and definitely retro! Is that the theme this fall? Retro, for both PanAm and The Playboy Club? We haven't seen the later show.

Steve's right knee (hubby this time!!!) has a torn meniscus, so we are looking at scheduling a same day surgery for him in the next two months. Not fun, he's been in pain and can't do any karate right now.   We are looking to schedule it around my days off, or to take a day off around my every other Friday off.   Hopefully we can plan it soon, I'm trying to sort out my calendar today, for that reason.

Watching a bit of "Alphas" this morning,  Gary's my favorite character, he's so cool! I don't think that I follow their show on twitter yet. I'm still bummed about having to wait till 2012 to watch the final shows of Eureka. I have a feeling that I'll have to wait till the summer for it! Man! Sanctuary's coming back on next month, for you SyFy fans out there!! Haven's getting interesting, and the past two episodes have been quite interesting with the Wendigos and with the "Crocker" thing!  Even Dr. Who was good this past weekend, I almost wanted to cry for him!!!

I would love nothing better than to have an at home spa day sometime with a group of my friends! I love to paint my fingernails, and every once in awhile paint my toes too!


 Glitter Toes Kit  is an awesome way of trying glitter powder or nail flowers or even Flitter---what I would pick!!! This kit would be perfect to put in a teen or adult woman's stocking at Christmas, for use at a little girl's birthday party, at Halloween, or whenever you feel like using it!!  Right now, they're running a deal for $39 through the enclosed link that I'm sharing with you!   Glitties Link

THEY WILL NOT BE FORGOTTEN

They will not be forgotten. Though my family did not lose any family in the attacks on 9/11/01, all of the heroes who lost their lives on that fateful day will not be forgotten. They were heroes.

The Bandana Splits CD Review and Giveaway

The Bandana Splits self-titled album, The Bandana Splits, recently came out, and I got the opportunity to review it.  Annie, Dawn, and Lauren formed their band earlier this year (believe it!), and have recorded a album live with an old RCA ribbon  microphone and Mr. Sam (their producer) played the instruments. These ladies have a retro sound to their music, similar to those of the 50's and 60's!  Their influences were The Ronettes, The Andrew Sisters and The Caravelles. (I was born in the 60's and vaguely remember the Andrew Sisters.) Wondering if they could have played at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, with youth  dancing the Shag to their music!  I liked how they harmonized together and the beat of their music. Their album is infused with Motown grooves, Brazilian psychedelia,  and a bit of some classic country. The Bandana Splits   I hadn't really listened to any retro bands recently, but I do like their album! I strongly suggest that you check them out! "Sometimes" is stuck in my head at the moment! "Sometimes", Choo Choo", and "Lavez Vous" are 3 of my favorites!

"Sometimes"  Check out their "Sometimes" video on YouTube!
