Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 5/23/22 — 5/29/22

Most of this week was spent up in Arkansas, on a little mini-vacation.  It was pretty nice until I found myself standing browsing the aisles of a small store in Ft. Smith on Friday.  That was when I tripped because I was trying to avoid someone who, apparently unaware that there were other people standing behind him, nearly backed into me and I ended up straining my back as a result.  BLEH!  I know that I always say that getting sick or getting injured just means that you have more time to watch movies while you recover but you know what?  That’s mostly wishful thinking on my part.

Anyway, I’m back home now!  And my back hurts but I’m looking forward to watching a lot of movies while I recover!  Speaking of movies, here’s what I watched this week:

say you wanna live in a dream
but i’d rather you sit here with me
well it could be what you’re needing

so you know you know that its true
that when i’m here i’m thinking of you
well it could be what you’re needing

all dressed up for you
and baby you don’t even have a clue
all the things that i have tried to do
they never seem to get to you

lately you’re gone and its been too long
what’s going wrong
i’m still drawn to you

well are you tired of being alone
its been a while its time to come home
well it could be what you’re needing

all dressed up for you
and baby you don’t even have a clue
all the things that i have tried to do
they never seem to get to you

you told me once that you wanted to go somewhere with me
you told me let’s go lay in the theatre it’s empty
