Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone

What I Am Listening To...

I cranked the tunes as I made dinner tonight. A fabulous, gourmet meal of tomato soup and chicken finger salad. I danced through my kitchen and the living room. The dog chased me and danced around me as well...it was a great time. Freeing and liberating. Crazy and fun.

A blast from the past came my way through the magic of iTunes...ahhh, Alanis Morisette. I missed you so. I remember fondly back to the days of Grade 10 when Jagged Little Pill came out and it was all the rage (Do people still say "all the rage"? It's hard to stay on top of the trends when you teach Grade 8 and they say all sorts of weird things you can possible hope to keep up. Anyway, Head Over Feet started playing and all sorts of memories flooded back through me, the way only a good song can influence. I loved it. This song was an important part of a happy time for me and the lyrics are something to be remembered for sure.

"Head Over Feet" ~ Alanis Morisette

I had no choice but to hear you
You stated your case time and again
I thought about it

You treat me like I'm a princess
I'm not used to liking that
You ask how my day was

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

Your love is thick and it swallowed me whole
You're so much braver than I gave you credit for
That's not lip service

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

You are the bearer of unconditional things
You held your breath and the door for me
Thanks for your patience

You're the best listener that I've ever met
You're my best friend
Best friend with benefits
What took me so long

I've never felt this healthy before
I've never wanted something rational
I am aware now
I am aware now

You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
Don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault

Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one's thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.
