Songs and Podcasts

My brother told me my iPod would change my life.  He was right.  It has changed in that I am constantly thinking of songs and things I can add to Pinky.  In fact, I had to start a list.  I have 10 songs listed as needing to be added to Pinky.  I’ve also been listening to some pod casts and am not sure I will keep the one I’ve been listening to.  I have 3 more to check out.  So tell me, do those of you with mp3 players live life listening and listing songs you need to add? Does that ever go away and if so, when?  When your mp3 player is filled?  I’ve already spent $50 on music for Pinky and think I need to hold back for a bit.

I really feel pretty good this New Year.  In fact, I have counseling today and am at a loss as to what we are going to talk about.  I have some trepidation about that because since I feel so good, I am reticent to dredge up the bad, crappy stuff that makes me cry.  I don’t want to cry.  I want to keep feeling good.  Yet my counselor is too good at keeping me on task and focused on working through stuff.  She does NOT let me get away with trying to fill the hour with fluff or stuff.

Yesterday I made good on some resolutions.  I drank more water than soda.  I did have one can of Coke at lunch.  But I also drank two 32oz mugs of water at work plus more at home.  I was going to walk home from work but I forgot how dark it gets before I am even finished with my work day.  I also had to stop at the bank so I couldn’t do the walking thing.  I came home and made a home made dinner of spaghetti and meatballs.  Tonight it’s meatloaf.  We had a nice chat over our meal and some good quality time together before I went to bed.  Oh!  I was falling asleep while reading and decided to just hit the hay.  It was 7:30.  Yes.  I was in bed and mostly likely asleep by 7:35.  However, I was awoken at 4:30 by my restless husband and ended up just getting up for the day.

Last night I took all the cats’ catnip toys and put them away.  They have been acting like banshees afire lately and we are wondering if taking the catnip toys away will improve their behavior.  They just whip around the apartment like their tails are on fire.  They jump, leap, and crash into things and just overall make nuisances of themselves.  It drives us crazy.  We’ll see if this works.  At least when I came out of the bedroom this morning the cat tree was still standing, so that’s a good sign.  They still have several non-nip toys so they are not at all deprived of toy entertainment, lest you worry.

Are capnip toys/exposure only for special occasions? Maybe they're on overload and it has to get out of their systems. Silly kitties.

I only have a nano so I make play lists on the computer and switch it up every couple of days.
