browsing through my reader this morning, I came across a post from Kate. She usually has something interesting to say, especially when she's blogging from prompts like this one... where is home for you?
So I thought to myself, I want to do that too (feeling a bit teary after reading her post, can I still blame hormones?). Anyway, the first thing that came to mind was a song by Chantal Kreviazuk* from the movie How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. So I was listening to this soundtrack a lot when husband and I first started going out and this song resonated with me, mostly because of the complications surrounding our relationship in the beginning (a story for another day), but the song lyrics made me think that yes, despite the crap, we should stay together because it was true.
"Somethin' in your eyes, makes me wanna lose myself
Makes me wanna lose myself, in your arms
There's somethin' in your voice, makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts, the rest of my lifeIf you knew how lonely my life has been
And how long I've been so alone
And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you've done"
And so, when Kate was talking about home being her husband and her kitties, this song came to mind and so did my hubby. Anywhere he is, and the monster, is home to me. As sappy as I may be, it's true and I'm okay with that. Man, here I go again... making myself tear up. What's the deal? I'm going to have to find this CD when I get home. That makes me feel old, a CD. haha. Do they still make CDs? And, do people still buy them?
*Just realized there is a Bonnie Raitt version of this song as well. I'll have to give it a listen.
