Life Happened….

A few years ago there was a country song titled Life Happened.   Here is how it goes
From the time she was thirteen
Julie Thompson had a dream
That someday she would see her name in lights
And after every high school play
The grown-ups all would say
That Julie’s future sure was looking bright

Well I saw her selling videos
At a store in Eastland Mall
I said why aren’t you in Hollywood
Taking casting calls
And she handed me my change
And started laughing

And said…Life Happened
Me and Bobby Chaplain fell in love
Daddy passed away and the babies came
And drama school was just too much
Now there’s little league and mouths to feed
And I directed the kindergarten Christmas pageant
Life happened

Curtis had an old Chevelle
The cops knew that car well
He never lost a race on Windy Hollow road
By the time he turned eighteen
He was a Georgia dirt track king
Proudly sponsored by the local Texaco
I bumped into him at Murphy’s bar
And he ordered us a round
I said why aren’t you in Rockingham
Chasing Gordon down
He killed his drink
And tore the corners off his napkin

And said…Life happened
I was driving home from Athens
Late one night
A trucker fell asleep and swamped paint with me
Said I rolled that bed at least five times
Now I thank my stars and I sell used cars
And I teach drivers education at St. Catherine’s
Yeah life happened

I saw the rest of my old friends
At our reunion at the Holiday Inn
And it seemed like it was only yesterday
Standing in the gym in our cap and gown
Full of wonder lust and glory bound
We set out to chase our dreams on wings of passion
But somewhere along the way we got distracted

Life happened
Our clothes went out of fashion with our songs
We started families and bought SUV’s
Became step dads and soccer moms
I finally realized we turned out alright
And we spent the night just catching up and dancing
And life happened.

Basically it is saying that you can make all the plans you want but still that doesn’t mean it will happen. That is how I felt these past 2 weeks. I had plans to sit down and write several blog posts. But guess what Life Happened. I was sick two weeks ago and last week I still was not at 100% add that to working 4 out of the five days and I was exhausted when I got home. My oldest had two soccer games last week which by the way they won. They are first in their conference. They made the state playoffs so there is at least one more game for them. This is the first time their school’s soccer team (men’s or women’s) has ever been to the playoffs. So that is exciting and add that to field day at the elementary school on Friday, which also happened to be Gracie’s 9th birthday. I was at the school for most of the day on Friday, we brought Popsicles to the class and then add the preparations for her party the next day we were busy. Her birthday party which basically lasted all day Saturday and then with Mother’s Day yesterday ( by the way Happy Belated Mother’s Day to all of you)- Life Happened. So I have a lot of wonderful thing to share with you. It is just finding the time to sit at the computer to type it all up is the hard thing. But have some time today and tomorrow to get you some updates, freebies, contests and more. So how has life happened to you?
