Flashback Friday--You Oughta Know

Sorry this is up late girlies! I remembered it once I was on the way to work, but it was too late to turn around.

I'm ill today because of even having to take the prednisone and also cause it is coursing through my veins. I hate it, and I hate that I feel this way, but such is life at this moment. So I thought of a Mad Woman song for today!

This song takes me back to 2 years or so after I graduated from high school. I played the heck out of the Alanis Morrisette CD in my pretty new car...a green 2 door Grand Am with a sunroof! I remember thinking of an ex-boyfriend who had attempted to reconcile with me (somewhat) after he broke my heart. I also remember listening to this song while my niece (who was high school age at the time) was in the car, and I would try to turn it down when she said the "f" word, but then I always seemed to miss it and turn it up right when she said it! It was a very empowering time in my life: I lived on my own, was paying my own way, working my first full time job, and felt very independent. Though I am very glad that I met Chris soon after, I'm very glad that I had that time to show that I could stand on my own two feet and survive, and even thrive. Life was good, despite the mad woman song pick! LOL

So here it is ladies!

What is taking YOU back today??

Have a fantastic weekend!

Wow that song alone brings back some interesting memories for me as well. LOL I will have to post something on my blog and get back to this. Every Friday morning on my way to work I listen to "flash back Fridays" and I LOOVE IT! The music is stuff I haven't heard in FOREVER...what a great way to start a Friday. LOL

I enjoyed that little flashback. Natalie Merchant's got such a great voice! I'd forgotten all that long hair she used to wear.
