United States of Motherhood: Hello! Is It Me You're Looking For?

Hello! Is It Me You're Looking For?

Hello, is it me you're looking for?

I know, I know, nacho!

So, I've been AWOL for the last few days.

Sorry, that Lionel Richie's song has been in my head since I watched American Idol with the kids two weeks ago.

The A.I. artist was actually very good. Who knew you could make a Lionel Richie video about a blind girl into an emo-rock contemporary hit. I liked it. What do you think?


Or the new version with David Cook:

I choose David Cook, although the original gives me flashbacks as a pre-teen of Lionel Ritchie. Yep, I thought he was hot.

So, hopefully, I will have time to blog more later.

This week-end has been a series of sports events. Eldest qualified for Sectionals (a big, multi-state meet with swimmers coming from Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Alaska, and Utah), so we spent Friday in Federal Way rather than in school. No worries, it was the last day of the trimester, so he only had 20 minute periods. My thoughts exactly--why bother? School was over by 10:30 AM.

Then yesterday,we had three back-to-back basketball games (including one play-off for Eldest) followed by a trophy party for the little guy.

Now, today, it's time again to go to the swim meet. Wish him luck. He didn't swim so well on Friday and had some upsetting social situations to deal with that day. Hopefully, it's better today.

Being that I am a few (cough, cough) years older than you, it's Lionel Richie for me. That was one of my favorites! I so lusted after that man ...

While I love that song...I personally find the video kind of distrubing! :) Good luck to your son at the swim meets! I was an avid USS swimmer growing up...and I now understand the immense time commitment by the parents!

How to get your head on striaght at a swim meet:

Go to quite corner. Spend 15-20 minutes visualizing win, time or whatever. Have on headphones to block out all noise. Be playing Eye of tiger or theme from Rocky.

Works like a charm. ;D

Was this for Far Westerns?

Ok, speaking from a male perspective. I vote David Cook and his updated version.

And as crow said, I find Lionel's video kind of troubling and weird.
