Today kinda sucked for me.
I had to make a really brutal decision yesterday about my relationship with K and that’s been kickin’ my ass ever since. I think we both realize it was the right decision to make for any number of reasons, but it doesn’t make things any easier…especially knowing that we both really still care deeply for the other.
And then I spoke with my daughter’s mom last night. We talked about M’s impending 2-week visit (starting next Friday!!) and then the conversation moved to other things. Those other things will be blogged about tomorrow…but they’ve been weighing on my mind all day, too. Big time.
So I was relying on B to help me deal with my funk. I had relied on Wendy’s & Oreo’s…so now I had to shake that off and simply BE with my son.
It was cold and raining and crappy outside…so I spent the day inside (except for a 20 minute drive) and did my best to entertain my 2-year-old. Fortunately, he also seemed to do his best to entertain me…
Ahh. I can let out a sigh of relief. The day is over and I’ve gotten by pretty well. B’s pretty darn awesome and I’m very thankful that it was my weekend with him…I certainly needed this.
And if anybody knows this about me (and K knew this), it’s that I absolutely LOVE live music when it’s done well. I’m a big-time live music fan, although I don’t get a chance to see enough of it in person as I’d like.
But this is why I love YouTube so much. Much like the live Styx cover of a Gowan song that I posted yesterday, I went there today to see if anything would “tickle my fancy”. Luckily I did.
This is a tremendous live performance by an unknown artist. Much like KT Tunstall, this guy uses recording devices to capture segments of his performance so he can do “other parts” and it sounds like more than one person actually performing.
The artist’s name is Jacob Moon and he’s doing a cover of “Subdivisions” by Rush…a song I never really cared for too much. This video absolutely brought a smile to my face…
So all in all, I can’t really complain about my day. I’m going to try and continue my Six Feet Under viewings…something that K got me hooked on…and then catch a few Z’s and work on a whole new day tomorrow.
New beginnings…better memories. :-)
