As I was thinking of what to write today, I thought to myself, “Self? When my kids think back someday about dear old mom, what will they most remember about me?” There are certain things about me: what I do, what I wear, what I say, music that I listen to, what I eat, etc. that my kids will associate with me – and I hope that (for the most part) they are all good things. I know without a doubt one thing they will know to be a favorite of mine – Whitesnake! I love love love the 80’s hair band, Whitesnake, and have listened to them faithfully since 1985 (my junior year of high school). My favorite song is “Here I Go Again” and it very well describes most of my life. Over the past few years though, I’ve wanted to add a disclaimer that it applies to the mate part of my life – not the God part. I know that “like a drifter I was born to walk alone” doesn’t mean God. And it doesn’t necessarily mean a mate anymore either. I just really like the song. Those who know me well know that I am a Whitesnake freak. My mom even has that song as my personal ringtone, so it plays when I call her. (I have a cool mom like that!) I went to see Whitesnake in concert the summer of 2005 at a Harley-Davidson parking lot party. I was definitely the nerd of the bunch! Anyways, that’s another one of my favorite things that I wanted to share with you.
