Soggy and Sappy

Do you ever have those days where at the end of it, you feel so drained that you just want to cry? There's no exact reason for the tears, it just feels like it's something you feel like doing.

Call it whacked out hormones, too much Starbucks coffee, a full day with the 2 1/2 year old asking Why and What, or just the fact that it's the right thing to do, but now that the little adorable Baby Boo is sound asleep, I am wiping tears. Actually, what started it was hearing the song, this song.



It brought back memories of when watching the Mickey Mouse Club invoked feelings of warm fuzzies and just pure happiness. My sis and I would wait until the song was over and we'd re-enact the show all over again. No, we couldn't tap dance, but we did try to glue soda caps on the bottoms on our shoes and give it a try. We envisioned being the next Mouseketeers and that too never happened but it was so much fun trying.

It also brought back memories of TV Boo crying every single time the song came on when she was little. We had to turn it off before the introduction because she would go to pieces. I'd ask her why she cried and she'd reply, "Cause I sad." There was just something about the ending of the song that brought that out in her.

But, you know what? Tears are good for the soul. So maybe I'll just let them flow and by tomorrow, I'll be ready to Whack a Mole or lick the beaters or finger paint once again.

I showed Josh the clip and he said, "But that's not Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!" :)

Mari said...

You know, that clip is kind of sad. I never realized it before.
Sometimes it is good to cry and let it out. Hope you are feeling better today though - and smiling!

Sorry for the sadness, Simone. (That last sentence was blissfully alliterative.)

I get that way some days and realize it's my hormones' and their last gasp.

The end song of the original Mickey Mouse Club used to make me sad too, but you know which song always brought tears to my eyes? The beginning of THE MONKEES! Really!

Hope you wake up this Monday morning feeling fit as a fiddle and ready for fun!

Cleansing tears, wash it away and start all over in the morning. Hope today is a good one for you!

I have been a crying mess for weeks. Think it will only get worse as CJ gets closer to leaving. Hell, I cried at a Target commercial the other day!

Hope today is better but sometimes you just need a good cry!

mother goose said...

yes, it just happened yesterday as I was packing away their photo albums and going through them. the time goes by so fast but while in the moment you never think you are going to get through it. It makes me wonder if I was enough back then.

Yvonne said...

It's my party and I can cry if I want to.
Cry if I want. Cry if I want to.....

I always loved that version of the show. It was never the same when it went to color. It just didn't have the emotion to it anymore.

Tears are cleansing. :)

Kwana said...

I've had plenty of those days. Guess you have to just go with it. Smiles today I hope.

A good cathartic cry is often times the best thing in the world.

Deb said...

Gluing bottlecaps to your shoes! Awesome!

As for the crying...don't I know it!

Have a nice week.

Ina in Alaska said...

Ah memories. I never missed that show. All those sweet faces from long ago, and of course Annette... Thanks for the memory and for sharing... and ...if you ever see another Alaskan plate on your roads you should ask the driver because I have Snowbird friends in the Palm Springs area for the winter!! Much love to you Simone xoxo

Veronica Lee said...

Hope you're feeling better today, Simone.

((hugs))

SuziCate said...

I was going to say that "Tears are good for the soul". If men got a good little cry out every now and then like we women do, can you imagine how much better they'd feel?!

Diva Ma @ Mommy Fabulous said...

Got a little something for you on my post today!

Saranne said...

Oh memories, memories! Yes, my eyes welled up when I watched it...hope that your tears washed your soul clean and that you are having a wonderful day today! OXOX

Nezzy said...

Oh, I hope today is a brighter day for ya'll! I used to get up and dance and sing with Annette every day of the Mickey Mouse Club, mouse ears and all.

Have an uplifting glorious day!
God bless!

Deborah Ann said...

Aw, that's so cute, gluing soda caps to your shoes! Have a good cry and let God comfort you, it feels great!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Sometimes a good cry kicks the happy tears into gear.

I know you're a great cook so I vote your lick the beaters from some yummy dessert you baked.

Sending smiles your way.

Christella said...

Tears let it all hang out and are good for the soul. Cry as much as you need.

SMJ said...

"too much Starbucks"...are you crazy woman? no such thing. :) so there.

lagirl/sweet tea said...

Enjoy your tears,Simone, they are a blessing. I take a medication that has a side effect which causes me to be unable to cry. I miss having a good cry from time to time. I think tears operate like a safety valve and keep us from exploding. That's my medical theory. LOL

Elle Bee said...

Just hem each day in with prayer and you will be like new tomorrow. :o)
Sometimes when I wake up in the morning, before my eyes are even open, I pray "please give me strength to face this day". Then at night I say "please give me strength for tomorrow". :o)
You inspire me Simone! Blessings on you and hang in there. :o)

Helene said...

I get it, I really do. I've had a lot of those kinds of days lately. It does feel good to get the blah's out of my system.

Hope you're feeling happier tomorrow!

BTW, how funny that we have those same kitchen canisters!! I love that color but my husband doesn't so it's the only thing in our kitchen that's blue.

ethelmaepotter! said...

I'm in tears after watching it, too.
Are we crying for the irretrievable days of our youth or the simpler times of yore? Either way, the Mouseketeers will always hold a special spot in my heart.
And you are so right - tears ARE good for the soul. So let them flow, but smile when they end. Why? Because WE LIKE YOU!

Sherry said...

Tears are so very good for the soul, you're right Simone. Some days we just need to feel them.

That song is sad...no matter what it's meant to be, TV Boo was right - listening to it now, it made ME sad!!

Looking at this clip takes me back to that time...and I think "oh my gosh, how innocent" we were back then!
