I'm not really into country, but it seems to be the best I can do. I blame my parents. For some reason the other musical style my mother was into was Jewish folk. That's right - I was raised on country and Jewish folk music. You're lucky I can't play the accordion.

More Than A Little Tired

I'm more than a little tired, I'm
Not just a bit worn out, I
Won't be alright in a minute if
I can just put my feet up

And I don't think this will be fixed
Within the space of a cup of tea
It wearies me to breathe
I'm more than a little tired.

I asked Mr Bea the other day what he thought of the idea of a memorial service for our embryos. "One day in the future, I mean. Once we've finalised the body count."

He grimaced at my choice of phrase, but said he thought it would be nice. Hopefully folded into a Christening. A "Christening And Memorial Service". It's strange to think we might celebrate one without commemorating the others.

Well I am disappointed you can't play the accordian !
I was bought up with the accordian, we had a mini one in the house and us kids would always pick it up and play...well not really play just make a racket.

The memorial service is a sweet idea.

Tiredness is good, all good.

Once we've finalised the body count.

I shouldn't laugh, but seriously? I did. Mostly because I know the feeling, but also because I think humor helps.

Thank you for the lovely song, Bea. I am a closet country fan too, this was beautiful. xx

Lovely song!

I think a memorial service is a great idea and I'm really hoping that the "body count" is finalized from here on out!

Nica said...

I'm with Vee on the accordian. You could play tangos!

As to body count... Man. How strong of you to admit that. (I don't think I could).

Fingers crossed.

Thanks for singing to us. :-) You're lucky I don't attempt that.

"Hopefully folded into a Christening". I'm hoping for you.

Beagle said...

I think I wrote that song.

Vee said...

I am back to say I didn't hear the song before...

It is lovely.

Perhaps we can figure out how to have an online memorial for all of our embies that haven't made it.

Bumble said...

Aw Bea, here's a huge HUG for you. I really look forward to the Christening x

Millie said...

My parents were big country fans as well. I turned out ok even if I know too much Kris Kristofferson.

I think your idea of a memorial service is a great one.

I'm cringing too over body count. Laughing, but cringing.

Jewish folk music! And country! Is there a better combination?

Aurelia said...

I too am cringing and laughing over the body count comment.

If anyone fertile had made it, it wouldn't be funny, but from you to us, yes, LOL.

As for the memorial service, my support group runs them twice a year, with a candlelighting at Christmas, and a butterfly release in June.

We could do an online one someday maybe?

Oh geez, *slaps forehead*, when I wrote funny I meant funny poignant like I'm laughing internally cause that's familiar, not funny like I'm rolling on the ground.

Gahhh nevermind, hope you understand what I meant.
