Boatloads of Shame


Shame [Avett Brothers]

Okay so I was wrong about
My reasons for us fallin’ out
Of love I want to fall back in

My life is different now I swear
I know now what it means to care
About somebody other than myself

I know the things I said to you
They were untender and untrue
I’d like to see those things undo

So if you could find it in your heart
To give a man a second start
I promise things won’t end the same

Shame, boatloads of shame
Day after day, more of the same
Blame, please lift it off
Please take it off, please make it stop

Okay so I have read the mail
The stories people often tell
About us that we never knew

But their existence will float away
And just like every word they say
And we will hold hands as they fade

Shame, boatloads of shame
Day after day, more of the same
Blame, please lift it off
Please take it off, please make it stop

I felt so sure of everything
My love to you so well received
And I just strutted around your town
Knowing I didn’t let you down
The truth be known, the truth be told
My heart was always fairly cold
Posing to be as warm as yours
My way of getting in your world
But now I’m out and I’ve had time
To look around and think
And sink into another world
That’s filled with guilt and overwhelming

Shame, boatloads of shame
Day after day, more of the same
Blame, please lift it off
Please take it off, please make it stop

And everyone they have a heart
And when they break and fall apart
And need somebody’s helping hand

I used to say just let ’em fall
It wouldn’t bother me at all
I couldn’t help them now I can

Bedroom Facelift

I finished my bedroom project last night just in time for sleep. I used 1' x 1' scrapbook paper that I got for sale and covered the entire wall. I love it! Now I need to spend more quality time in my room...preferably sleeping!

Show and Tell


As of lately I have been preoccupied with large piles of homework like the one below:
This is just half my pile and it doesn't include my art supplies. I may have to buy stock in book bags. We have been busy in the house getting Sully's room finished [finally!] and I found many treasures tucked away from when we moved. Here's some of my fave finds:
An old copy of Thumbelina from when I was little and a Plantation Melodies book from 1888 with some wicked cool illustrations:


My old kitty statue my Mom bought for me at a garage sale [How can you not love this?!]

Also a bunny statue my Mom bought for me:
This is the kick butt picture Ugly made for me when we went North [Tour de Fat]

My bedroom is getting a facelift...here's a clue as to what's going to be happening...I'll post pics when I'm finished

AND MY VERY FAVORITE THING EVER! I found this today for 50% off and I had to have it to hang some scarves and jewelery on. Yes, I am weird, but thrilled! Thanks to my husband for letting me hang this freaky thing on the wall. I named him Ferdinand [original, I know]
And as promised: Here is your present Ugly! Happy 5th of July!



So that's my show and tell for the first of September, I have some more pretty exciting things to share....that will have to wait until tomorrow!
