Just another Mom-ic Monday

It's been one of THOSE days.

Not a bad day, but the kind of day where what you planned and what actually happened bare no resemblance whatsoever.

It's my own fault really. What sane, mother-of-an-infant makes plans for her day and expects everything to go off with out a hitch anyways?

I was setting myself up for failure.

Excuse the choppiness of today's post, you see it's hard to blog on a consistent clear thought when you don't have any, and that's how today was. My mind was in a billion, million different places. And it's even harder to put your thoughts to paper-or screen- when you are doing so during naptime. Because you feel guilty for using naptime to blog instead of clean, or workout, or clip coupons, or eat, or do any one of the million things you wanted to and in the end nothing gets done, you give up and waste the time playing Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook and eating Buffalo Chicken Dip for dinner.

That might be a true story. That may be exactly how today went...and I'm not even sorry.

I caught up on the Grammy's during naptime, which is one of my favorite award shows. This is because most Grammys, except for the major ones , are given out in ceremonies before the actual show to allow for more performances during the broadcast. And Grammy performances are usually pretty good. I especially love all the collaborations. Lady Gaga and Sir Elton John were great. Taylor Swift and Stevie Nicks, well I had high hopes for the collaboration but it fell flat. Pun intended. Green Day and the Broadway cast of "American Idiot"- amazing! I don't even like the song "21 guns", but the performance was one of my favorites of the night. I also really enjoyed Pink's song and Cirque du Soleil performance, Andrea Bocelli and Mary J Blige singing "Bridge Over Trouble Water" and Slash's solo during "Blame it on the Alcohol."

The lows for me:
I can't decide if I am disappointed with the Michael Jackson tribute or just over Michael Jackson tributes in general. Before you all jump down my throat- I'm not hating on Michael Jackson. I think he was a music icon and his loss was a huge one to the music industry. What I do have a problem with is the fact that since he died people spend every waking moment paying homage to him, but when he was alive they tried their best to forget he even existed. Was he weird? Hell Yea! But most creative geniuses are. That's how they come up with things that the rest of us never could.

Another Low...Beyonce. And hate on me all you want here because I CAN'T STAND HER!! How is she even still relevant?? Sure I'll admit to humming "If you like it than you should've put a ring on it", but that's because you can't escape her music. It's everywhere!! And it all sounds the same!! And the fact that she inserted an Alanis Morissete song into her repertoire made me all the more annoyed. Enough already, she's like the Tony Shalhoub of the Grammy's (note: I love me some Monk, but he took way to many Emmy's home for the role) Step aside and give someone else a chance.

And who invited the Jersey Shore people? The only "Situation" on the Red Carpet should have been Lady Gaga's dress-which I actually happened to like.

I'm a little shocked that Lady Gaga didn't win at least one award for Record of the Year, Album of the Year or Song of the Year, which I always get confused about. Aren't they all the same? Don't bother trying to explain it to me. By next year I'll be googling it again.

The Red Carpet at The Grammy's is always entertaining, because this is one of the Award Shows where you can really push the envelope. It's hard to really pinpoint Best/Worst Dressed, because even the Worst Dressed are still entertaining.

Google Nadeea's Grammy arrival if you don't believe me!

It sounds bad... but I'm sick of Michael Jackson tributes... I'm over it. I loved his music, but I fast forward through all of that now. I am also sick of the Jersey Shore people. FI is part Italian and it makes him sick to see these losers lol.

I also totally <3 Gaga and her dress. And the performance, but then again I have always loved Sir Elton. Pink was performance of the night.
