I have almost completed the first week back from a whole week off for Presidents Day. And suffice to say, this has been The. Longest. Week. Ever. The week of “vacation” was fun.* Play dates were fun. We baked. We went to the Henry Ford Museum.
However, it takes work to be a cruise director. Add a slew of out-town guests for a death in the family and an injured husband and it was a crazy week.
Even though it was nice to catch up with family that I haven’t seen in a while and spend some quality time with The Babes, sometimes I long for easier times when getting a five-page term paper and figuring out what party I was going to go to were my biggest worries. (Worries? If I knew then what I know now –geez)! I fondly remember the times when I would pretend my empty beer bottle was a microphone as I belted out Don’t Speak by No Doubt with my freshly pink highlighted hair.
But those days are long gone. Long. Gone. And I don’t want to go back because there were plenty of things I didn’t like about my 20’s. But I like to reminisce. I find the best way to remember those times without looking like a desperate fool (you know, getting lit up at a party while dressed in an outfit that no longer looks appropriate in my post-baby body)is to listen to the music that I rocked out during that oh-so-brief time in my life.
Without further ado, I present to you My Playlist: 1995 – 2000:
What songs remind you of that magical time known as your late teens, early twenties?
* It’s not a vacation unless I’m on a sandy beach with a rum drink in my hand with nothing but the sound of waves crashing along the shore.
