I'm really ready for that vacation now...

Mentally, at least. I've been ready. More than ready. However, being on my own for the first time in over a dozen years means that in reality, I need to work more. And I will, as soon as I can get a second and/or third job. Not to mention, I am hardcore cleaning and doing what I can to renovate my home. I need to make it start feeling like mine. Oh, and I'm launching a new website this week. One that indulges my love of purple, and I can't wait for everyone to see it! So stay tuned for that.

But for now? I'm just getting lost in a song inspired by this week's "Monday's Music Moves Me" theme at X-Mas Dolly's, which is "splish-splash" and all about summertime, water, water sports, bodies of water, etc.

Here is Jane's Addiction's "Up the Beach." One of the most beautiful and relaxing songs I've ever heard. It is said that salt water cures all, either through sweat, tears or the ocean. And while life and responsibility are definitely calling on me now, I long to escape to the beach and let the salt water and ocean air recharge my nearly drained batteries!

  5. I like watching surfers, but YOU will NEVER find me riding the waves. I'm such a scaredy CAThy! I'll stick to the splish-splash of the kiddies pool, if that's ok. :) Thanks for joining the 4M crew on the dance floor today!

    1. Oh, I would never surf! Too many giant fish with teeth in the water! But I do enjoy watching others surf.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Callie! I hope for a vacation one of these days, but right now I'd gladly take more work :)

      I will be linking to the new site here as soon as content is up. Or at least as soon as the launch is done for real.

  8. take me with you!!!!!
    I so wanna have a day at the beach all to myself.
    I do love playing in the water with the kids, but it is not exactly relaxing. I just want my iPod, a good book and some Pringles.
    is that too much to ask? :)
    Great song!
