i was out walking the dog today and this song just popped into my head. i have no idea where it came from:

k that’s not a creepy freeze frame at all ^^^

the ’80’s did such a good job of making really happy peppy songs about kinda quasi serious issues. like i looked the lyrics for this one up when i got home and it’s actually about either breaking up – or not being together, or like leaving someone high and dry…. but it’s just SO g.d. catchy!

i thought it was pretty fitting because i’ve been kinda a crab the past couple days – anything but either upbeat or tender. i think the job search coupled with the fact that i’m still pretty unsettled in life had been getting on my nerves and it just came out in snips to those people closest around me. unfortunately … mike always takes the brunt of it.

when you’re with someone, they see all sides of you: the good, the bad and the ugly. you just hope that the good outweighs the other two 🙂

i dunno for whatever reason after i started humming this song it made me think that it’s not just about not nagging, or listening, it’s about being kind and thoughtful and putting more in then you think is necessary. because really, when you’re all caught up in your own world it’s easy to forget that we all just need a little TLC.

lesson for the day brought you via time travel by 1985.

  1. So, I played the video earlier when I first read your blog, and now it’s been stuck in my head…which is a good thing! This song makes me happy, but I never think about it. Thank you for sharing it today!

    Sorry you’re feeling unsettled and such- that is such a tough spot to be in. Hang in there.

    • Ha ha! I guess misery loves company?! It was stuck in my head all night too 😀

      Thanks so much for the kind words – I’m still a firm believer of “good things come to those who wait” …. and work hard in the meantime 😉

Will bake for comments!
