Sadie Got A Job!!


Hello my blog buds! I know it has been a while since I wrote or visited anyone. I have been really busy lately, because finally, after almost three and a half years, I am gainfully employed!! It’s not exactly the job I wanted or even remotely where I wanted to be, but it’s a decent job that pays fairly well and has benefits – all things I have been without for quite some time. I feel truly blessed and am so grateful! 🙂

After being out of work so long, I must admit, I am also really tired – we work a 9-80 schedule, and these 9-hour days are tough after riding the couch (metaphorically speaking) for so long! I won’t lie, after most, if not all, of those hours on the computer at work, I have not been on much at home. My eyes and butt need a break from the screen and the chair . . . 😉

Anyway, I wanted to share my good news with you all, as I know you have been in my corner, rooting for and supporting me. I have missed reading all of your wonderful posts and plan to get back in the swing of reading again, even if I don’t post much. Just trying to get my schedule down. I’ve been back to work for close to 3 weeks now, but I’m sure I’ll get acclimated soon. (I was behind on my post reading before that, which didn’t help!)

I hope this finds you all doing well! I will be catching up with you soon . . . probably in a stalkerish kind of binge ❤

Now if my husband could find a good job, we’d be back in the saddle again . . .

Just something I was thinking about . . .

I’m NOT Out – Song Lyric Sunday


In honor of Song Lyric Sunday – this week’s prompt was to share a song that helps pull you out of a dark place.  I really enjoy this prompt – I love music and it is a huge part of my life.

I have so many songs that I listen to when I am in a dark place (for differing reasons), so I had a hard time picking one out. Lately, this little ditty – though short on verse, is long on energy with its driving beat – has been part of my play list. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

I’m Down by The Almost

Lyrics courtesy of Google PLay Music
I had a dream I was giving up
I had a hole in my side
A shallow grave would be just enough
To bury me and my pride
I’m down, but I’m not out I’m down
Don’t count me out
I feel so desperate to waste this day
I ain’t got nothing to lose, no
I feel like giving it all away
Cause I got nothing to prove
Don’t even know who I am no more
Can’t recognize my own face
I’d burn it all and just walk away
For a moment of grace
I’m down, but I’m not out I’m down
Don’t count me out
Just something I was thinking about . . .

Your Third Party Vote Scares Me


I had to reblog this, as these are my thoughts exactly!! I have been that rebellious voter . . . and my preferred candidate is no longer in the race. But this year, I can’t take the chance with the future of this country, my grandchildren’s future, the world as I have known it.

Even if Hillary is not your candidate, she’s got to be the lesser of the two evils. If there was ever a time NOT to follow the road less traveled, exert your independence, and say “fuck you” to the establishment – THIS is that time . . .

Just something I was thinking about . . .

Drifting Through

Third Party voters. You’re everywhere. You’re young, you’re old. You’re Independents, or you’re disillusioned Democrats and Republicans. There’s a lot of you this time around.

And it scares the hell out of me.

You might think I’m being dramatic. Or experiencing some longest election year ever hysteria.

But right now there is a racist, bigoted, nationalistic, white supremacist baiting, federal reserve illiterate, foreign and  domestic policy ignorant, dangerous narcissist applying for the job of the most powerful person in the world.

And your protest vote could very well be the reason he gets the job.

I get it. You’re fed up. Frustrated. And you’re going to walk into that voting booth in November and vote your conscience.

But I don’t know if we can afford your conscience.

Your moral vote, your election day purity, your clean conscious, they are all luxuries we can’t afford in this election year. Not when…
