As I mentioned on Twitter yesterday, just like that we are (not) homeowners. It is so much easier to be on the seller's end of the table at closing. It's more wham, bam, thank you, ma'am and less sign, here and here and here. That doesn't mean that it wasn't painful, because oh boy, was it ever painful handing over that check, but nonetheless it is done and over and I'm once again a road warrior.
Which brings me to the reason I fell in love with Jon all over again yesterday. I noticed a random cd sitting on the console in my car yesterday while sitting in traffic. It was a Rascal Flatts cd and I thought, "Oh, I'll just pop that in and escape from the endless drone of afternoon radio shows." Then I noticed there was already a cd in my stereo. I popped it out and it was a cd entitled "Songs for Katie".
Yes, folks, Jon made me a mix tape! Well, a mix cd but I prefer the term mix tape. He knew how much I have been dreading this commute so he put together a cd of some of my favorite songs, songs that remind me of him, our songs and songs that are commute appropriate. I drove home with the biggest grin on my face.
Some of the tracks include, "Can't Help Falling in Love" - UB40 (our original wedding song), "No Tears" - Scarface (from the hilarious scene in the beginning of Office Space), "Pussy Control" - Prince (one of my favorites), "Move, Bitch" - Ludacris (in homage to my aggressive driving), "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" - Wham (I always give my sleepy-doo a smooch before I leave), "Would You Go With Me?" - Josh Turner (one of our songs) and "Better Together" - Jack Johnson (a song that reminds me of him).
Le sigh. It totally made my commute a lot less dreadful. Gosh, I love him!
