Peace, Love & Mickey Mouse

I have so many thoughts bouncing around in my head right now that I simply have to write them all down. Prepare yourself for a whirlwind of Whitney. Wow, did I just think of a new name for my blog? Haha.

Okay, first off, why do I relate soo much to the song "I dreamed a dream" from Les Mis? I like the Glee Cast Version. It's pretty much the most depressing song I've ever heard but it touches my heart every time I hear it. (Musical versions of songs tend to do that to me).

"I dreamed a dream and time gone by
When hope was high and life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving...

I had a dream my life would be
so different from this hell I'm living
so different now from what it seemed.
Now life has killed the dream.... my dream."

Fantine singing "I dreamed a dream" Broadway version

See what I mean? But it's just soo beautiful. Another broadway song that gets me every time is Endless Night from the Lion King. I cry every single time I hear it. It's soo beautiful. I'm not going to post the lyrics but you should listen to it sometime.

Also, that musical has the most beautiful costumes I have ever seen.

Moving on.... Every single morning when I get ready Ellie just lays on the floor and stares at me sadly with her ears down. She knows what's coming: Mom is leaving for work. Last week she spent some time with my Aunt Pam and her two adorable chihuahuas. She LOVED them. They played all day and ever since she has been home it's been a sad story. She's not eating as much and she seems sad. My heart hurts for her. I wish I lived in a house with a yard and that I could get her a little friend. Makes me want to cry.

I miss Florida. I wish I could live there. The sunshine state is calling my name. I miss the smell, the feel, the roads, the lights, the people. At least I'll get a fix next week. I'm going to see Suzanne, Abby, Kathleen and Kelly! I'm so excited but I wish Katie was coming too. We all need to be together again.

My mom is the best Kindergarten teacher ever. She does soo much to prepare for her incoming class and does so many creative new things every single year. I wish I had a job where I did something as miraculous as teaching children to read or introducing them to their schooling career.

I want to try those new pretzel m&ms... might have to go get some....

I had a dream last night that my car completely exploded, caught on fire and then some cute boy asked me out. This left me entirely unconcerned with my car's condition. I feel like this scenario would be pretty accurate in real life. Sad huh??

Start with those pretzel m&ms.
Pretzel m&ms = amazing.
And they somehow magically make you forget about everything else going on... at least until the bag's empty :)
