A Request and a Warning

Gosh, I'm grouchy today. I found myself thinking that I'd be a dang good mother if I just didn't have any children! I realized that it maybe, possibly could be me after musing at length on how impossible everyone is to live with. I got to thinking....."Wait. What are the mathematical probabilities that everyone in my life is annoying at exactly the same time? Divide those calculations by the lunar calendar and you have your answer: PMS-induced insanity."

So stay away from me today. Don't call. It's for your own good.

But that's not what I want to blog about today. I need your help. I've started exercising again, and I need some ideas of really good songs to run to. Right now my favorite is Black Horse and a Cherry Tree. You just have to move around when that song's playing. I also love Crazy, by Gnarles Barkley. Some other ones that get me going are the Indian songs from the soundtrack to Bride and Prejudice. All those drums....love 'em. But I need more than that. Any ideas please? Pretty, pretty please? It's safe to leave your comment, I promise.

A few that I like to run to, although a bit random, are "You Got Me" by Tristan Prettyman, "Groove With Me Tonight" by MDO, "Now That We've Found Love" by Soozy Q, "The Sign" by Ace of Base, and "Blue Sky" by Francesca Battistelli.

I like history and war movies and usually those soundtracks get me going, they give me the energy to do the laundry or when I need to tackle an uneasy task.

Sometimes even if I haven't seen the movie but it helps if you have and you envision the battlefield, also LOTR is nice but I don't have that soundtrack yet.

My latest one is the soundtrack from the movie "Alexander", so far I haven't exercised much, but I like to listen to it while driving, it makes me think my car is a chariot.

And to answer your question in your post:

usually brothers tend to synchronize with each other, so if one decides to be annoying, the others follow :)

I started to notice this pattern with my two little ones, they wake up at the same time and start crying and filling their diapers at the same time, at first I couldn't believe that, so little, he could already be so in synch with his brother :)

"Push the Button" by the Chemical Brothers. From the opening notes to the final track, it is the perfect workout album. Especially since the last two songs are mellow, they make for an excellent cool down. My favorite track is "Believe", it just keeps building up and up and up! Good for you and your workout!

"I Like to Move It, Move It" from Madagascar. I really like that one when we're dancing around the house. I'm sure it would work for running too. I just read while I run.
