Working (and playing) for the weekend

Posted on Updated on

First off, Happy Fathers’ Day to all the baby-daddies out there. Here are a couple of my past Fathers’ Day posts:

Secondly, how is it Fathers’ Day already? And by that, I mean mid-June. WTF, time?

Despite having to work Saturday (I survived!), I’ve actually had a really nice weekend, thanks to a few catnaps.important things.

Friday night, my sister and I went out for dinner (I had a groupon to this place) and then hung with my cousin  and his wife before we all headed to see the Postal Service at Barclays Center. My inner 17-year-old was freaking the f*** out in the best way possible. Ben Gibbard and Jenny Lewis on the same stage? I was a happy camper.

I feel like I’ve been talking a lot about music on this blog lately—even more than usual. I may also have a playlist coming your way soon. I go through phases where I basically depend on it—it’s my frame of reference and my therapy and part of how I process things. Even the most positive changes bring challenges, and having some go-to songs for those tough moments makes all the differences. I also find that I get attached to certain songs that speak to a particular experience I’m having. Later, when I listen to those songs I feel like I’m traveling in time, for better or worse (I think a lot of us have “lost” favorite albums or artists to relationships gone south).

Luckily, the weather has been beautiful this weekend. I spent most of Saturday afternoon/early evening outside near the water—freaking gorgeous! Wore myself out all over again…

What have you been up to this weekend? Do you “time travel” through music?

    Yay for getting to see The Postal Service!!!! I know, my inner 17 year old is so obsessed, (and if I’m being real, so is my current 28 year old). How rad!

    I’ve been dodging rain drops and eating scones this past weekend…it was great! Glad to know the weather in NYC in June can be reasonable. I’m a bit scared if I’m being honest. 🙂

      Why is it that rain and scones go so perfectly well together? Sounds very British or something!

    […] As mentioned last weekend, I have a new playlist for you, inspired by my dating rant from a few weekends back when I asked wtf is wrong with men. I think it’s good to put on while doing a little therapeutic Saturday-night cleaning. Enjoy! […]
