This week @lesleehorner has been very low key. It’s actually an interesting story. For a long time now my intuition has been telling me to spend less time online. I think you guys know this about me by now. I’ve written about it before. When I try to do it on my own, I can’t seem to resist the urge to just “check” my email and pages. The checking usually turns into chatting, replying, tweeting, and updating. By the time I am finished my 5 minute check turns into an hour or more of playing. On Sunday, I had popped onto the blog and thought my Sunday Quote had not published. I was frantically trying to post a new quote when suddenly the internet just stopped working. Mark went to troubleshoot and realized the router had just died. What a coincidence? I still have internet access but not on my own computer and the set up is complicated. So my goal for the week has been to spend no more than 30 minutes online per day. Luckily I had scheduled the entire week’s worth of posts except for today’s before our problem occurred.
So with that in mind, I’m keeping it short. I went to the gym on Monday and listened to my Ipod while on the elliptical. It’s when I am working out that I realize just how much music touches me. I don’t have extremely sophisticated taste in music. I mostly enjoy what’s popular. I like a catchy tune and sweet lyrics. I recently added a few new songs to my collection and one of them is currently my favorite. It’s odd to say it, but as I listened to it during my work out Monday, I experienced pure bliss. It was like my entire body was smiling. I allowed myself to forget about everything else, including where I was and what I was doing, and just get lost in the song. So for today, in honor of simplicity, I decided to just share my current happy song. Catchy tune, cheesy lyrics, enjoy! (And if this is not your happy song, I suggest finding one and letting yourself escape in it for a few minutes!)
