de-funked

today was just one of those days.
in a rut.
feeling like poop.
unmotivated.
lazy.

after the girls had a bath velzy asked for "a fast song" to dance to on my bed before she got her jammies on.   sure, why not.  so i turned on the ipod in it's bose dock (possibly my favorite home appliance) and turned it up really loud and this is what came on:



as i was holding ivy dancing/jumping around watching her little face glow with glee as she giggled and watching velzy jump as high as she possibly could while shouting "am i so high now?" it all melted away.
i put them to bed happily, put away some groceries, folded some laundry, cleaned up some toys, vaccumed and swiffered the floor, took a shower and finished my mermiad embroidery that will hopefully turn into a backpack for her birthday.

who doesn't love flogging molly?

i've definitely felt like that before and there's nothing like a awesome dance party with your baby (babies in your case) to help you get out of the funk.

I love those turnaround days. Nothing like kids laughing to turn things right-side up again!

okay I have not heard flogging molly forEVER!!! like since a was a freshman.

those days are THE WORST! i'm glad they got you out of your funk. I'm a little tiny bit relieved to hear that I'm not the only one who gets like that once in a while.
