Things I forget that I love…

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

I know this title sounds a little strange. How can one forget they love something? Easy! Life is busy, crazy, and I don’t always make time for all the little things I truly enjoy.

Reading: I definitely read more in the summer since I have a lot more time to go to the library and just while away a couple hours with a good book. Ever since I stopped taking melatonin, I have been reading before bed as a way to fall asleep. It is now part of my nightly routine and I am so glad I made time for it! I just requested a bunch of Mary Higgins Clark books from the library, but I am MOST excited for a book a bought off Amazon yesterday (DAMN TO HELL THAT 1 CLICK ORDERING PROCESS!!!)- The Murder of Marilyn Monroe: Case Closed. After listening to a podcast about her death, I am interested in reading about the theory she was murdered.

  
Teaching piano lessons: Tuesdays = doom. I work all day, then I go home and teach six piano lessons. I am not done until 7:30pm. I dread Tuesdays. But then once I’m in it, I realize I am actually enjoying myself. I have very nice students who are smart, funny, and occasionally hilarious. My goal is to begin looking at Tuesdays like this: I GET to teach piano lessons, not I HAVE to teach piano lessons.


Donuts: It is very sad that I often forget about donuts and how yummy they are. But on the other hand, maybe that is good… In any case, I recently remembered how much I love donuts and got a couple at the store yesterday.


Broadway music: When I was in high school, I would lock myself in my bedroom and listen to Broadway soundtracks straight through. Chicago, Sunset Boulevard, Joseph, Phantom... I was obsessed! I'm not quite as obsessed anymore, but I still LOVE musicals. I need to make more of an effort to listen to them. It's not like I don't have to opportunity... I sure have a lot of CDs in my basement!
What do you forget that you love?

  1. I adore reading. When I was younger I'd devour the library, especially in summer. Now I skim newspapers, magazines and non-fiction mostly. I feel like there's no time to dig in to a good book. Sigh. I love that you enjoy teaching piano so much! I feel that way about ice skating.

    1. I did not know you were a skater and taught ice skating! That is really cool. :)

  2. I am the same way about the piano lessons...once I get started, I am having a great time. I also love coaching xc and track.
    I recently started re-reading a bunch of books, mostly because my youngest is reading them, and this way we can discuss them more fluidly, but I really do enjoy re-reading old favorites.
    Last night we started watching "the Biggest Loser", I forgot how much I like that show. The contestants are so inspiring. Except Richard Hatch--I didn't like him on Survivor, and I still don't.

    1. Hatch is on The Biggest Loser this season!!?? OKay I think that makes me want to watch it! We used to watch TBL all the time. Maybe I can convince Paul to get back into it. The thing is the only time I really like it is when Bob and Jillian are on. I will have to see if they are on this season.

      You know me, I looooove rereading books! That is very cool you can discuss them with your children.

  3. Oh that book sounds interesting. Yea, I too forgot that I like musicals. My favorite soundtrack that I would play over and over was "Jesus Christ Super Star"! "Rent" was a close second!

    1. JCS and Rent- YESSSSS! I would listen to those all the time as well. I was in Rent a couple years ago so I am kind of "Rented" out by now. Haha, get it, rented out?

  4. I forget how much I love a good rainstorm. In Colorado we hardly get rain so when we do, I just love it (and love to go running in it). I also forget how much I love sour cream. I can't eat it due to lactose issues but the other night I had a taste of it and thought "I could eat this whole container right now". P.S. I love musicals but I never forget that and go every chance I get!

    1. I am glad you don't forget you love musicals! :)

      Sour cream is very good. I forget that I love that too!

      Rainstorms can be so beautiful!

  5. I like this post! It's good to remember these things, no doubt. Broadway musicals eh? I always think of Bette Midler. You know what I'd love to do that I've never done? Go to an opera. I LOVE OPERA. Once my running dies down, I will take up opera singing lessons. I've got it, I know I do. I want to be that little opera singer with tiny boobies that can make the house seats shake.

    1. LOL! Why the tiny little boobies?? Haha. I am not that into opera but I sure had to study it a lot during school. You should totally go see an opera!

  6. Over the holidays I made rice krispies treats several times. The first pan was so delicious we devoured it, then pan 2 and pan 3. I wish I would have forgot how good they were, because i think they account for some my weight gain :/

  7. Oooh we are the same person!!! I forget how much I love things too sometimes!!

    Like, I forget that I love reading, even though I read daily. Sometimes it takes a great, new-to-me book and four hours of uninterrupted time to make me remember how much I love the experience of reading. Or I forget how much I love it when I bother to straighten my hair. I'll wear it wavy for weeks and then straighten it randomly and then I'm like "OMG I'M A NEW PERSON!"

    1. lol I like your hair straightening story. It is crazy that we would forget that we love to read. I hope now that I have made it a habit to read before bed, that I never forget anymore.I just reserved a bunch of books at the library so I should be SET.

      Delete
    2. ME TOO on the hair straightening! I'll go months without doing it and then that one time I randomly do it I realize how much more civilized I look!

      I forget about songs that I love ... and then once I hear them again I go crazy and listen on repeat until I can't take it anymore! Right now that song for me is Boys by Britney Spears ;D Yes, I am an almost 30 year old woman in a very fulfilling long-term relationship blasting Boys while driving through town with my sunroof open!

    3. I never heard that song! Lady Gaga has one called Boys Boys Boys I love. You should go to Vegas and see Britney' show. :)

  8. I often forget how much I love meals that take a lot of prep! Partially because I rarely make them, like chicken dinner or turkey dinner. There will also be random songs that come on the radio that I remember I love. Like the 90s on 9 is my favourite!!!!!

    1. Oh man, that sounds like a radio station I would love! The radio is just horrible these days. I turned it on for 3 seconds as a joke today and a dumb Pink song was on and now I can't get it out of my head. I know people like Pink, but I do not like her music.
