Tunes for Tuesday: Stand by Rascal Flatts
I need to take something to the next level (but what is it?)

Tunes for Tuesday: Ain't It Fun, by Paramore

Every now and then when I'm doing a "grownup thing," like driving, paying bills or doing laundry (y'know, the fun stuff!), I stop for a moment.

This is hard to put into words because it seems silly, but I think to myself "Wow, I can drive a car like it's second nature," thinking back to driver's ed class in high school when I had no idea what I was doing. I thought I would never get the hang of it. I remember the first bill I paid -- a subscription to "Rolling Stone" magazine. It was also the first check I wrote, right before I went away to college. 

I think it's because I have a teenager who is just starting to learn the "grownup things" in life, which brings me to today's song, which I heard yesterday on the way back from the gym -- the "grownup" way to get activity, unlike swinging on monkey bars or something.

I love the fun energy of the song and the lyrics, which poke fun at "living in the real world."

(Oh, did I mention that I'm the mayor of my Planet Fitness? I've never been the mayor of anything on Foursquare, let alone a GYM.)
