You asked for it!

Okay, Betties, you asked for it!  You have been after me to blog for over a year now.  Well, here you go.  I am blogging!  Hang on, it's going to be a wild ride!
Being a champion procrastinator, I am creating this blog, finally, after procrastinating for so very long, instead of doing the real work on which I need to focus this Valentine's night, or paying the bills...really need to do that!  I am certain that is next on my list.  I am getting right on that.  Here I go...Any minute now...
Or, I could rant a little more.
So, in an effort to avoid working last night, I watched the Grammy Awards for the first time in at least ten years.  I must be getting old.  All I could think about as I watched Eminem giving his "brilliant" performance was,"For the love of Pete, pull your pants up in the back you fool!  You are wearing a belt!  Use it to hoist your jeans up over your behind!  Nobody needs to see that!  Who are you inviting in back there?"  Only some of that was I able to keep inside my head...I tried, really I did, but it just got too loud in there and I had to let it fly! 
On the flip side, I will say that I cracked right up to Cee-Lo Green, dressed like one of the Mardi Gras Chiefs from Treme', and Gwyneth Paltrow singing "Forget You" with the puppets.  That was the first time I had heard any version of that song, and I immediately went to iTunes and downloaded the explicit version which I have been singing in my head, and occasionally under my breath all day!  I even quoted the clean version today, explaining to one of my classes what the yearbook company would be telling us if we miss our deadline.  "Forget you!"  They laughed.  Kids are easy...sometimes.
At the end of the day, I love that I know that song!  I will be playing it my head constantly now.  I think it will make me smile more, and I smile a lot as it is. 
I have the best life of anyone I know.  I have a partner who loves me and who I love.  He challenges me, and I challenge him.  We grow together.  I have an amazing family who not only love, but actually like each other.  I have friends who I treasure above any measure.  I have a job, a home, relatively good health, and the ability to laugh every day.  My life is good, and I am so thankful to everyone in it to helping make it amazing.
It's good to be a Betty.
Okay, now I'll go do the stuff on my list.
Happy Valentine's Night!
Thanks for reading!
