Love It

Whenever I'm having an off day, it is certain that this song can always make it better.

I will love you more than me
and more than yesterday
If you can but prove to me
you are the new day

Send the sun in time for dawn
Let the birds all hail the morning
Love of life will urge me say
you are the new day

When I lay me down at night
knowing we must pay
Thoughts occur that this night might
stay yesterday

Thoughts that we as humans small
could slow worlds and end it all
lie around me where they fall
before the new day

One more day when time is running out
for everyone
Like a breath I knew would come I reach for
the new day

Hope is my philosophy
Just needs days in which to be
Love of life means hope for me
borne on a new day

You are the new day

Ode to the Bathroom

So, I hate germs. Really bad. I acquired this dislike growing up in the household I did. (Germs were not allowed in under any circumstance). I owe it all to my mother, who well, owes it all to her mother. So I guess this post should be entitled, Thank You Grandma Helen. While I'm on the topic of thanking people though, I may as well thank Marissa my dear sweet cousin as well. I'll tell you why in just a little bit. 

First a little history about the past few months while I've been living in this 12x9 square I call 'home', I'm proud to say I've yet to intentionally step bare-foot in our absolutely disgusting bathroom. Better known as The Mold BoxI better explain this though. Our bathroom really is usually kept up, our apartment mother ... aka ... Kelli seems to do a good job at cleaning the sickest parts, the tub and toilet, often. (Thank you by the way) and I have a thing about our t.p. countertops and soap. We always have Bath and Body soap (which reminds me, I need to make a mall run, we are running low) but still, it is disgusting. 

The reason for this post though is now, courtesy of Marissa - we have TOILET SEAT COVERS!!!  Thats right. Be jealous if you would like. Marissa gave them to me the other day as an early Birthday Present. FIVE THOUSAND OF THEM. Love her for forever because of that. I've attached a picture so you can see them in all of their glory. 

These little babies are helping me make it through the homestretch as germ free as possible.
