#MicroblogMondays: Let it burn

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.

It's been a rough weekend. Between teething toddlers (I remember getting molars and how much it hurt), a husband who is finally recovering from being bed-ridden and learning that the course I'm suppose to be teaching spring quarter not being on the books (being rectified as we speak), there has been more stress than I care for. 

Granted, there were some good moments. Grey and I took the Beats to their first concert to see this guy, which was a lot of fun. And there were many, many moments to snuggle together as a family. Still, I struggle with feeling stuck and finding hope that the hard times will pass.

This morning, on the way into work, I heard a new song. One so new that it was being played for the first time on KEXP, introducing me to a new group called Magic Giant. Immediately I turned up the volume and found myself dancing in my seat. My new battle cry for facing the day. For facing those dark and hard moments. Let it burn.


  1. I hope it gets better. We love KEXP in our house! That and Austin City Limits is how my husband and I find good new music to love. Love that you brought the Beats to a concert, start that music lovin' up young! :)

  2. Sorry the teething has been rough! But how fun that y'all attended your first baby concert. Hope you have a great week.

  3. This is my first time hearing the song and I love it. Feel an iTunes purchase coming on...

  4. I was watching Caspar Babypsnts all weekend with Moonbeam and thinking of you!

  5. New to me, and thanks! Like the sound.

    I want to tell you about this band for the littles, too. One of our relatives is in it and we LOVED going to their concerts when they came to town and the kids were younger.

  6. I can see why it made you want to dance. They remind me of another band that makes me happy ... thanks for sharing!
