Ever Have One of Those Days?

(or even weeks) where you're ready to take your toys and run far, far away from anything resembling stress, like people, life, situations, etc?

I've been there for the last few days.

My professional/clinical side of me tells me it's a form of depression even though I am a Prozac Prin-cess'(Prin-cess' as how Julie Andrews says it in the movie "The Princess Diaries" or is it"The Princess Bride"?)

 Brain has failed me once again...

Perhaps a med adjustment is in order but I don't want to do that until after Michael gets back because that takes a while to regulate and it's not like I'm harming myself. 

Or others. 

Yet.  :-)

But all day long I've been singing the following songs to myself...


I Sing the Body Electric(from the musical Fame)

I sing the body electric...


I celebrate the me yet to come...

I toast to my own reunion

When I become one with the sun...



And I look back on Venus

I look back on Mars

And I burn with the fire of 10 million stars

And in time

And in time

We will all be stars...



I sing the body electric

I glory in the glow of rebirth

Creating my own tomorrow

When I shall embody the earth...



And I'll serenade Venus

I'll serenade Mars

And I'll burn with the fire of 10 million stars

And in time

And in time

We will all be stars...

(oh yeah)



We are the emperors now

And we are the czars

And in time

And in time

We will all be stars...



I sing the body electric...

I celebrate the me yet to come...

I toast to my own reunion

When I become one with the sun...



And I'll look back on Venus

I'll look back on Mars

And I'll burn with the fire of 10 million stars

And in time (and in time)

And in time (and in time)

We will all be stars...

Fame

Baby look at me


And tell me what you see

You ain't seen the best of me yet

Give me time, I'll make you forget the rest

I've got more in me, and you can set it free

I can catch the moon in my hand

Don't you know who I am

Remember my name



(Fame)

I'm gonna live forever

I'm gonna learn how to fly (high)

I feel it coming together

People will see me and cry (fame)

I'm gonna make it to heaven

Light up the sky like a flame (fame)

I'm gonna live forever

Baby, remember my name

(Remember) (Remember)

(Remember) (Remember)

(Remember) (Remember)

(Remember) (Remember)



Baby hold me tight

'Cause you can make it right

You can shoot me straight to the top

Give me love and take all I got to give

Baby I'll be tough

Too much is not enough, no

I can ride your heart till it breaks

Ooh, I got what it takes



(Fame)

I'm gonna live forever

I'm gonna learn how to fly (high)

I feel it coming together

People will see me and cry(fame)

I'm gonna make it to heaven

Light up the sky like a flame (fame)

I'm gonna live forever

Baby, remember my name

(Remember) (Remember)

(Remember) (Remember)

(Remember) (Remember)

(Remember)



[Instrumental Interlude]



(Fame)

I'm gonna make it to heaven

Light up the sky like a flame (fame)

I'm gonna live forever

Baby, remember my name

(Remember) (Remember)

(Remember) (Remember)

(Remember) (Remember)

(Remember) (Remember)

Remember my name

I'm gonna live forever

I'm gonna learn how to fly (high)

I feel it coming together

People will see me and cry (fame)

I'm gonna make it to heaven




Stay tuned...this could get interesting.


Can you have a midlife crisis at age 56 11/12?

Oh Ness.... I remember all of those lyrics. Last summer, my younger daughter and I watched the movie Fame on Netflix and I just started singing along, and she kept looking at me like "Mom, how could you possibly remember all those words from when you were my age???" But I did!!!

I'm sorry you are feeling blue... I've been having some ups and downs too of late... somehow though, music (especially from the past) has a way of uplifting the spirit, if only for a little while.

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit. I've been awful about keeping up with blogs lately. A little too internalized I guess.

I hear you Ness! I feel the same way right now. I want a vacation, or a change of scenery or just want to slap someone.

I think it has to do with spring, thats my story and I am sticking to it. LOL

hugs to you my friend..

Yep. I stay in a midlife crisis.

Hopefully when Michael gets back, you will feel better and I know, so relieved!

Hang in there hon. Just wait a few days and something will change. Usually does and all will be happier :)
