I’ve been a little MIA lately. It’s not that anything isn’t going on, it’s just that I feel like I have some sort of writer’s block. How can one have writer’s block when all I write about is my daily musings as a mom? It seems kind of silly but that’s where I’m at. I haven’t felt like discussing Charlotte’s current bath strike or hunger strike or really anything in particular, so I’ve just stayed away from writing down anything.
But, I would like to share something ridiculous with you all. For the past week or so I have been listening to classical music. Literally it is the only type of music I have been putting on my headphones or in my car. And it is having the strangest effect on me. As in I don’t feel a murderous rage for everyone around me when I’m commuting, and car rides have been much calmer as well. For some reason this music has just been soothing me in a way that nothing other than wine can do. And I can’t go drinking wine on my commutes or my drives, for obvious reasons. Well, I guess I could, but I don’t feel like being arrested. But really! This music is where it is at for me lately. I’ve either been listening to the 50 greatest classical masterpieces on Apple music or the Symphony station on XM radio. And I absolutely love it, which is weird since I never in my life had the need to listen to this kind of music before.
I don’t know why I’m even writing about this, but I guess if you’re feeling murdery this morning I suggest a little Beethoven or Tchaikovsky. Happy Friday!
