brand new day

Today is a good day.

It might have something to do with the fact that the new baby is almost 2 weeks old and things are slowly getting back to normal.  The mere fact that I have something as mundane as Cleaning Bathrooms on my to-do list instead of just Nursing and Surviving proves it.  Whether or not I actually get to the aforementioned bathrooms is beside the point.

It also might be the little face laying in my arms.  There's something about a wrinkly forehead and pursed little lips that make the world seem fresh and new.

Not to mention after having rain off and on all last week, the sun is shining bright today and it finally feels like summer really, truly is here to stay.

I suppose the *cough*zoloft*cough* probably doesn't hurt much either.

So, when I heard Joshua Radin's Brand New Day on my Pandora playlist, I couldn't help but smile and sing along.

Here's to a brand new day for us all.

ps-here's a link to the official video.  I find it amusing and it's worth the watch, but it was the lyrics that make me so happy, hence the video I posted


  1. oooh, hooray for good days! Having smile music doesn't hurt a bit, either! ;)

  2. Oooo, I love. love. love. that song!! I think I need to make sure that I play it every day to remind myself "I'll be okay"... So happy to hear you are doing well. I know how difficult those first few weeks are and I am so glad to hear you are pulling out of the dark tunnel and into the light. :) Love you!!

  3. Happy Day! I'm glad things are slowly getting back to normal and going well for you. I feel like things are looking up too.
