My Favorite Song Today

Yesterday I had a discussion with my husband and tweener son about why I don't blog or tweet more than I do.  I told them I didn't know what to write about.  Later that night I was scrolling though Pinterest, which is my go to procrastination/happy place.  I saw a pin with a 365 day music challenge My husband is a music buff so I shared it with him.  We decided this was something we could do together, I would write a daily post on the topic and he started a Tumblr for his. 

 

So here it is, my first 365 day music challenge post:

 My Favorite Song Today

The Impression That I Get by the Mighty Mighty Bosstones


I took this to mean the song I like most today and not my all time favorite song, that will come later on the list.  This song does rate in my top 100 and on days like today I sing it as a reminder.
 
We've had the whole water in the basement problem going on for a while and today we felt the full extent of it.  It was hard not to have that sinking feeling as we tore down the walls and discovered more and more damage.  The cost kept mounting, in dollars and time as I thought of all the repair work we're in for.  

When faced with something like that it's hard to stay positive, but in truth we really don't have it that bad.  In a world such as ours people are facing way worse things than water in the basement on a daily basis.  I'm not going to turn this post into a list of all the problems in the world, we all know them and know someone who has suffered them at one point or another.  I'm just going to say the next time something seems insurmountable to you or things keep piling up and you aren't sure how you're going to make it through, listen to The Impression That I Get and be thankful because you've never had to knock on wood.

"I've never had to knock on wood, but I know someone who has.
Which makes me wonder if I could.
It makes me wonder if I've never had to knock on wood.
And I'm glad I haven't yet because I'm sure it isn't good,
That's the impression that I get."

 

What was your favorite song today?
