You know it's been a long road trip when...

You know it has been a long road trip when he sends you a Phil Collins song...
Any guesses which one?  Winner gets a big WHOO HOOOO from me. 
It has been a long couple of weeks without Neil - & yet... & yet... i can never complain about stretching growth, can i? 
i went grocery shopping & hosted overnight company twice while he was gone.  i managed to conquer my fear & drive downtown & get lost, get found & find parking.  We kept our little home spinning - running Cai to exams, girls to fiddle, little ones to karate, snuggling babes to sleep.  That's one of the hardest parts of Neil being gone.  When he's home, he'll usually snuggle Gage before bed & i snuggle Ephraim.  When he's gone, they double team me & bedtimes turn into a much longer, drawn out affair. 
But, i feel my Father here - in this travellin' man stage of life. 
i have a few words i'm mulling over that people have said to me... one is momentum & the other is endurance. 
i know this is a scattered post, but i'd rather post a snippet of real life than some of the other stuff in my drafts box. 
So, Phil Collins... Any guesses?

Hmm - well, admittedly, I have no idea what any of the Phil Collins songs are, so I went to Wikipedia and found a list...

and I'm gonna be corny and say that it's "Home".??? I have no clue what any of the lyrics are, so if it's a bad song, my apologies!!

Melissa said...

Gah. Apparently Wiki led me astray, and "Home" is a song by someone else which has taken lyrics from one of Phil Collins' other songs.

So, how about "one more night"? (Again, having no clue about the lyrics...)

My guess is Patricia the Stripper but it's not Phil Collins!!!

Hope it is "You'll Be in my Heart", as that is one of my favorites of his...Ginny

Hmm, could it be 'Two Hearts'?

Cara said...

My guess is "Groovy Kind of Love"....cause I think you two truly do have a groovy kind of love! Love reading your blog...been reading since you were pregnant with Gage (Feb 2008 birthclub on Babycenter), and have been encouraged by your fierce mother's heart, and love for God (and your hubby!) since then.

it's another day for you, another day in paradise...

Well the best Phil Collin's songs ever are Groovy Kind of Love and In The Air Tonight but since this post isn't about your kids' passing gas while cuddling you...I am guessing the first one!!!
