Just another day in paradise

Much to discuss – overwhelming itching and fatigue, freaking myself out about rare liver disorder that will result in delivery of baby four weeks early. Not that I have this – but there’s nothing like the internet for self diagnosis…

I was on my way to the doctor’s today (for bloodwork to rule out rare and complicated liver disorder) and was listening to the radio – and started crying, listening to my favorite Phil Vassar song. My musical tastes stopped developing right around the same time Jess was born (coincidence? I think not) and that song always makes me smile. It does not generally reduce me to tears – but mix in a little pregnancy hormones, plus lack of sleep, and it’s all me, sobbing my way down Main Street, trying to find the right street for the hospital…

Because this – more than anything – is my song.

Just Another Day In Paradise lyrics

The kids screaming, phone ringing
Dog barking at the mailman bringing
That stack of bills – overdue
Good morning baby, how are you?
Got a half hour, quick shower
Take a drink of milk but the milk’s gone sour
My funny face makes you laugh
Twist the top on and I put it back
There goes the washing machine
Baby, don’t kick it.I promise I’ll fix it
Long about a million other things

Well, it’s ok. It’s so nice
It’s just another day in paradise
Well, there’s no place thatI’d rather be
Well, it’s two hearts
And one dream
I wouldn’t trade it for anything
And I ask the lord every night
For just another day in paradise

Friday, you’re late
Guess we’ll never make our dinner date
At the restaurant you start to cry
Baby, we’ll just improvise
Well, plan B looks like
Dominoes’ pizza in the candle light
Then we’ll tippy toe to our room
Make a little love that’s overdue
But somebody had a bad dream
Mama and daddy
Can me and my teddy
Come in to sleep in between?
Yeah it’s ok. It’s so nice.
It’s just another day in paradise.
Well, there’s no place that
I’d rather be

Well, it’s two hearts
And one dream
I wouldn’t trade it for anything
And I ask the lord every night
For just another day in paradise

Well, it’s ok. It’s so nice.
It’s just another day in paradise.
Well, there’s no place that
I’d rather be
Two hearts
And one dream
I wouldn’t trade it for anything
And I ask the lord every night
For just another day in paradise
For just another day in paradise

Well, it’s the kids screaming.
The phone ringing
Just another day
Well, it’s Friday. You’re late
Oh yeah, it’s just another day in paradise
