Music, Moods, And Whimsies

Spotify is fast becoming one of my new best friends. Currently it has jumped to the top of my music streaming tool list along with Amazon Music. You don’t always need music when writing, of course, but there are times when the music needs to fit the scene and for the past couple of days X Ambassadors has been the fit needed.  Their CD, Love Songs Drug Songs, from 2013 is catchy and has the song “Renegades” – my current favorite song.

I didn’t know who they were until the commercial for Jeep Renegade started playing.  At first I thought the song being played was only for the commercial.  As soon as I found out it wasn’t and the song being played was an actual song, away to the Internet I flew and have found a wonderful new bad to listen to.  I have only listened to the complete CD once, but want to just sit one day and listen with my headphones on to experience the full CD before giving a complete review of it, but I really don’t expect to be disappointed on any song.  Perhaps I’ve set my standards too high, but, for some reason, I don’t believe I have.

Along with the writing, X Ambassadors is going only perfectly with my mood of late:  Happily expecting warmer weather and being able to get outside more – as soon as my wheelchair is fixed, of course.  *le sigh*  I am almost afraid of getting my wheelchair back because, with its past track record, I may have it for only a couple of days, or weeks, before it breaks down again.  Should I use it like normal when it gets back, or should I simply use it for the really bad pain days and for going out of the apartment?  This would mean to continue to use the manual and hurt more every day, but it could save the wheelchair possibly?  OK – it might not “save” the wheelchair, but it could save us from sending it back to the provider again for them to hold it for many days, or weeks.

Putting the wheelchair concerns to the side, there is very little going to stop me from looking forward to warmer weather, less pain (fingers crossed), and day trips to town and the library.  (Yes, I know, my world is such an exciting one!)  There will be whimsy trips to the mall, library, and Barnes & Noble.  This reminds me – I need to see if the laptop will fit into my newest traveling bag!

Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics.
