I Got You Babe – Song Lyric Sunday


Oh Happy Sunday!!!

I’ve been trying to get back in the saddle and swing, and Song Lyric Sunday is one of my favorite exercises in sharing 🙂  Helen Espinosa hosts this great prompt idea.

I wrote a post for my other blog – Windchimes and Dreamcatchers, and it really got me to thinking. On that platform, I post poetry, fiction, romance, and writing prompts that I don’t think fit the platform of this blog, and usually never anything personal. As I was working on it, I wrote one line that just hit home something fierce 🙂

Helen’s prompt for today is to share a LOVE song in honor of Valentine’s Day (and her upcoming wedding – YAY!!)

I’ve been with my husband going on 40 years. We met when I was 16, he was 18; we got our first apartment when I was 17. Neither of us could wait to get out on our own and live our own lives – together 🙂 Though we didn’t make much money, we managed and still had enough to have quite a bit of fun close to home. We were together about eight years when we decided to start our little family.

Though I couldn’t begin to count all the love songs that have been close to my heart for different reasons at different times, I have a few all-time favorites. I shared a couple of those on my other blog, yeah, I said a couple 😉

As I was writing a line below the video for Sonny & Cher’s I Got You Babe, and listening to the song, I couldn’t help but tear up. This was our song from the very beginning. It wasn’t all that old in 1978, we really were pretty young. But something about when we talked (and when we didn’t), we just knew we were soulmates – and yes I believe in that sort of thing 🙂

It’s just a simple little ditty, some might even say corny now – but it is so much more. So, here it is, the song that probably would be my #1 go-to love song to describe us ❤

 

I Got You Babe – Performed by Sonny & Cher

They say we’re young and we don’t know
We won’t find out until we grow
Well I don’t know if all that’s true
‘Cause you got me, and baby I got you

Babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

They say our love won’t pay the rent
Before it’s earned, our money’s all been spent
I guess that’s so, we don’t have a pot
But at least I’m sure of all the things we got

Babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

I got flowers in the spring
I got you to wear my ring
And when I’m sad, you’re a clown
And if I get scared, you’re always around

Don’t let them say your hair’s too long
‘Cause I don’t care, with you I can’t go wrong
Then put your little hand in mine
There ain’t no hill or mountain we can’t climb

Babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

I got you to hold my hand
I got you to understand
I got you to walk with me
I got you to talk with me
I got you to kiss goodnight
I got you to hold me tight
I got you, I won’t let go
I got you to love me so

I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

Anyway, just something I was thinking about . . . my soulmate, our life . . . ❤

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 . . .

Diane’s 70 (JJIJ)


I love Diane Keaton and am amazed that she just turned 70 years old last week, on January 5. The Oscar-winning actress has made 49 movies, appeared on television, and won many other awards in a career acting in drama and comedy that has spanned 46 years.

Here’s a few clips of her interviews that I just love, as well as the trailer for my favorite D.K. movie, Something’s Gotta Give. She is so me in this movie. 😉  (AND yes I can be a sucker for a good romance, though that is so not all I am about. One of my other fav movies is Man on Fire – go figure 😉 )

Anyway – here’s Diane . . .

You go girl!! ❤ 🙂

 

 

She just cracks me up!!!

Anyway – Happy 70th Birthday Diane, you badass you 😉

I Passed!!!!


Oh my goodness – I passed the insurance exam, and now can apply for my license to be a producer for Life Health & Accident Insurance!! And I made a pretty respectable score, better than I was expecting. (Yeah, I was stressing just a bit!)

I haven’t had to take a test like this in a long time and though I have always been an above average student and an excellent test-taker, I was a bit worried. I am a lot older and my memory, in my opinion, doesn’t seem to be as good, and in all honesty this isn’t something I ever saw myself attempting to obtain.

Life can lead you down some strange and unexpected paths throughout your lifetime. At least mine has, that’s for sure. I’ve always been a good writer, and love the craft. I have spent the last 20 years working as a writer, which in all honesty I never anticipated, or even dreamed of, in my twenties. I can be a natural-born storyteller, and can have a roomful of people cracking the fuck up and fully engaged. I tend to make people think in different perspectives. I’m not always what one might expect 😉 I like that about me, and I think others do, too.

Be open-minded . . .

Having said all that, I am not a salesperson, and have NEVER aspired to be. BUT, from my own experiences, I know how important and advantageous safe annuities and Long Term Care insurance can be to one’s future. Right now I am setting appointments, and will now be making commissions 🙂 Never worked on commission before, that’ll be different. And here’s to having mentors – people who may see things in you that you might not see.

Well, here’s to a new path, new adventure, new experiences, and hopefully some income that’s not from our 401K. Stopping the bleeding there would be awesome . . .

Anyway – I want to thank all of you for your support

I have a wonderful family, and it continues to grow larger (just had a new great-niece born three weeks ago), and more great friends than I can count, but my blogging family is important to me, too. I miss y’all when I am absent, just like with my other friends and family. I miss reading your posts, and will be blog-bingging/stalking you soon! And I know I have been so neglectful of my blogs, but I am hoping to start posting more regularly. Thanks for sticking with me 🙂

Oh, and I just have to say . . . I will miss Doobster . . . Mindful Digressions can be such a pleasure . . .
