Hmm...I found this quiz on Dagny's site, and not sure this theme song really fits me... What do you guys think?

Your Theme Song is Back in Black by AC/DC

"Back in black, I hit the sack,
I've been too long, I'm glad to be back"
Things sometimes get really crazy for you, and sometimes you have to get away from all the chaos.
But each time you stage your comeback, it's even better than the last!

And it was funny that the quiz asked about how I handle rough times in my life...since this whole year has been up and down for me so far. Another down - My mother called me from the hospital last Friday, and told me she had an emergency appendectomy the night before. I know that when she called she was doing well, and the surgery went fine. But for some reason it bothered me - I think being faced with the thought of losing a parent got to me. Both of my parents are great - and supportive in their own ways. I count myself incredibly lucky to have them, and am really glad that I've re-established a strong relationship with my father since the divorce. (I wasn't too happy with him for a while.) So, I freak out sometimes when that realization that they're not immortal hits me.
And oddly enough, it comforted me that my 24 yo brother was freaked out too. (Misery loves company?) The funny thing is that Tony and I are the ones that are always paranoid that every stomachache we have is appendicitis...but my mom never worries about that... (And from now on, it won't be a possibility.)
So, on top of that (which shouldn't really have bothered me, knowing that she was already recovering well), I talked to another friend on Friday night who will most likely be moving to Atlanta in around a month (her husband was flown out there by an interested company for an interview). It sounds like he has a good chance of getting the job, and I wish them well. But, I don't want them to move! Unfortunately for selfish little me, there is absolutely no good argument for them to stay in CA. It is just too expensive out here for a family of 5, let alone little old me! They'd be able to buy a nice house in GA, and have $$ for food, instead of living check to check here and not being able to save up anything.
And another friend is off to Denver (probably at the end of the week). Her husband is already there, working the new job and hopefully securing a lease on an apartment...long story. I've come to terms with their moving though, since she's been talking about it for over a year, and has wanted to move to Denver since I met her 12 years ago in college. (Wow, has it been that long??)
Anyway, it's just all making me feel lonelier. Even though I still have plenty of local friends around.
Um, wow, I really went on a lot longer than I had planned to...Sorry about that!

I feel your pain. I hope your mom gets better soon too.

kerri said...

Oh, and I have the same theme song. It doesn't fit me.

Tami said...

I don't know Kerri...I think we both have made some pretty good comebacks... :)

kerri said...

Oh well, comebacks yeah. But I really, do we listen to ACDC? Uhhhhhhh...

Christyn said...

I had the same theme song too! :) Not fitting either. LOL

Joie said...

Make that a fourth with the same theme song.

I don't find it particularly fitting.

Um, that's weird. A broken quiz??


Dagny said...

Nah, not a broken quiz since I got "Born to Be Wild" which really was not a shock for most people.

Sorry to hear about your mom. As for the friends, that's one of the things that happens when we grow up. If you're truly friends, then you find ways to keep in touch.
