The New Addition

Well as most of you know I went home for spring break so I could see my new baby niece get born. Well not actually get born. I do not even want to watch my own children get born. I maintain that I was meant to be an adult in the late 50's where the times were simpler. Where Nat King Cole was on the radio and men stayed in the waiting room where they belong. Where I Love Lucy was on the television and husband and wives had their own beds........and you all wonder why I am not married yet. And my inability to behave like a normal adult is a post meant for a different day. This post is dedicated to my precious (yes I realize that as a straight adult man that word should not be coming out of my mouth but once you see these pictures there are really no other words left to aptly describe her.)

Introducing Brooklyn Love Cummings. Coming in at 7bs 2 ounces and 18.5 inches long.

Music makes me feel

So a friend of mine (Melissa) jokes around with me that whenever I go home for a break and then come back to Arizona I create a new playlist that is super depressing, borderline homeless hipster, because I am homesick for a week or two. She is........correct (Don't let it get to your head). So here is the playlist for this comeback slumpback..... REMIX. Warning, don't listen to if if you are sad. Also, next post will be pics of my amazingly adorable brand new baby niece. So stay tuned. That will be the happy post when I get out of this bluesy funk. In the meantime, get sappy and reminisce with me on how fun it is to have me at home.

Rivers and Road - by The Head and the Heart

There is a hook in the song that says, "And my family lives in a different state, if you don't know what to make of it, then we will not relate." It basically sums up how I feel like 90% of the time.

Ghosts - Ingrid Michaelson

I'm a Ghost, haunting these halls, climbing up walls, that I never knew where there. And I'm lost. Broken down the middle of my hard heart. Broken down the middle of my hard heart.

Where I Stood - Cover by Dia Frampton

I don't know what I've done. Or if I like what I've begun. But something told me to run And honey you know me it's all or none . . . .
And I won't be far from where you are if ever you should call. You meant more to me than anyone I ever loved at all
But you taught me how to trust myself and so I say to you. This is what I have to do.

Cough Syrup - Young the Giant

And so I run now to the things they said could restore me. Restore life the way it should be. I'm waiting for this cough syrup to come down

Happy Pills - Norah Jones (she still gets me)

Carolina in My Mind - James Taylor

It's been a holy host of others standing round me. Still I'm on the dark side of the moon. And it seems like it goes on like this forever. You must forgive me. If I'm up and goin' to Carolina in my mind. In my mind I'm goin' to Carolina. Can't you see the sunshine. Can't you just feel the moonshine. Ain't it just like a friend of mine. To hit me from behind. And I'm goin' to Carolina in my mind

Shadow Days - John Mayer

Did you know that you could be wrong. And swear you're right. Some people been known to do it. All their lives
But you find yourself alone. Just like you found yourself before. Like I found myself in pieces. On the hotel floor
Hard times have helped me see

I'm a good man, with a good heart. Had a tough time, got a rough start. But I finally learned to let it go. Now I'm right here, and I'm right now. And I'm open, knowing somehow. That my shadow days are over

Real Love - Cover by......Adam Sandler (Haha, I know, No one and I mean NO ONE, can compare to the John Lennon version. But this comes from one of my favorite movies and its the version I am listening to right now. Do not hate crime me.)

Somebody that I Used to Know - Goyte

Break Even - Cover by Xenia

Invisible - Skylar Grey

A Song for You - a cover by Gavin Degraw

Keep Me in Your Heart For a While - Warren Zevon. (The only song that can make me, a grown man, get a little misty eyed)

Sometimes when you are doing simple things around the house, maybe you'll think of me and smile. You know I'm tied to you l like the buttons on your blouse. Keep me in your heart for a while.

Vienna - Cover by Xenia

Yeah.....you know its bad when there are not 1 but 2 John Mayer Songs

Half of My Heart - John Mayer

Half of my heart will always be in Utah. Growing up sucks sometimes. I thought it would be easy. I thought that at some point it is just suppose to come easier. I thought my life would be different than it is somehow. That moving away would be easy for me to do. Don't get me wrong. I do like it here. It has been so incredibly good for me and helped me grow up so much. But, half of my heart will always be in Utah with the people that I love. I miss my mom. I miss my dad. I miss my sisters. I miss my brother and his amazing family. I miss my nephew and I miss my two nieces. I miss my best friend 5 year old next door neighbor. I miss my grandparents. I miss my friends. You know who you are. You are the only ones who read this POS blog and the only reason I keep posting things on here. You all make me a better person for letting me be a part of your lives. So here I thank you for leaving permanent footprints on my heart. For remaining my friend even though I moved 700 miles away to go to school and figure out my life. For answering my phone calls. For cheering me up. For letting me sleep over when I come home and staying up late just talking. For endless gchats. For group lunches. For birthday wishes. For funny stories. For all the reminders of how lucky I am to have you in my life.
