Don't Think I Don't Think About It - Darius Rucker


I left out in a cloud of taillights and dust. Swore I wasn't coming back, said I'd had enough. Saw you in the rear view standing, fading from my life. But I wasn't turnin' 'round, no not this time. But don't think I don't think about it. Don't think I don't have regrets. Don't think it don't get to me, between the work and the hurt and the whiskey. Don't think I don't wonder 'bout could've been, should've been all worked out. I know what I felt, and I know what I said, but don't think I don't think about it. When we make choices, we gotta live with them. Heard you found a real good man and you married him. I wonder if sometimes I cross your mind. Where would we be today if I never drove that car away? 

I don't have a lot to say about the song, it's a favorite of mine, and I listen to it often. Maybe more than I should lately. Everything happens for a reason, right?


I saw "Eat, Pray, Love" today. I've read the book 1.5 times (Yes, I'm halfway through re-reading it). I had heard about it for a while, but I picked it up the weekend that the ex and I called off the wedding. I had no idea that it would mirror how I was feeling, or the impact it would have on me. I found myself picking it up here and there, and not reading it all at once, but that seemed to work based on what was going on in my life. I went alone today, by design, and willed the people watching it with me to be courteous movie-goers. Without giving it away - all I can say is...WOW. Just wow. It's funny how it still mirrors my thoughts. I will be seeing it again in theaters and I can guarantee that I will have the DVD when it comes out. See the movie. You won't regret it.

Tonight I went shopping for groceries and found myself wanting fresh mozzarella. I picked up some plum tomatoes, fresh mozz, some pearl mozz, basil and pesto among other things. I decided in light of my new love affair with the gym, I'm going to have a love affair with food. Good, flavorful food that is still within my diet and daily calories. There's something to be said for savoring flavors. I need to get some prosciutto at some point, but I like the idea of the "anti-pasta"  platter for meals. Simple, yet full of flavor. That's what I'm going for. Good food, great workouts, and a new love affair... with life.

Don't think I don't wonder 'bout could've been, should've been all worked out. I know what I felt, and I know what I said, but don't think I don't think about it. When we make choices, we gotta live with them.
