Letting Go, Getting 'Rocks'

I've been sick for over a week now. It started with horrible stomach pains and progressed to exhaustion, the worst sore throat of my life and now day three of laryngitis. In short, it's been the pits. I'm mainly a marketer at my day job, but I'm also the PR person when there is a crisis and yesterday, sadly, we had one of those. Sometimes things happen that put everything else in to perspective, you know? You're reminded that life is really short and there's no point wasting time on people who suck, jobs you hate, bands you don't like... or diet ice cream. Don't even get me started on diet ice cream.

So I made it through my day of hell, keeping in mind things were much worse for many others. After dinner I watched some episodes of M*A*S*H and then Survivor. My husband and I talked about Eminem - Eric has always been a huge fan. While I've always been into Metal, Eric really loved rap in the 90s and early 2000s, especially Notorious B.I.G. and Eminem.

So anyway, I was reflecting on all the stuff that Eric and I like and I realized I hadn't listened to an actual Aerosmith CD in my car... in ages. Aerosmith is my favorite band and I listened to them while working last week but it struck me as odd that I didn't have a single CD of my favorite band in my car. How is this possible? I tend to take things in the house, file them away and then forget about it. I don't like clutter, so everything is "away" - either on a shelf or in a box, etc. This time, "away" means a giant CD zip binder that should probably really live in my car. The thing holds like 200 albums or something. It's just sitting in the top of my closet, not doing anything other than collecting dust. All because it's more "orderly" there.

So after a week of hell and day of chaos, I vowed to live a little: take down the CD binder, let it live in my car and be slightly messy. Who cares if the CDs won't always be in order or the binder takes up space in the backseat? I don't ever drive anyone else, anyway! Live a little. I'll be listening to Rocks on the way to work tomorrow.

If you’re going to pick an Aerosmith album, that’s the one to pick Allyson 😎 (Followed closely by Toys In The Attic and Get Your Wings) At least in this I’d guys opinion.
