Fergie - Big Girls Don't Cry MUSIC VIDEO

I love this song. I'm obviously not a music snob! I don't care that it's top-40 or that it's sung by Fergie (who usually annoys me).

I kind of relate to the words. No, I'm not leaving my husband, but there are some things you have to handle alone, within yourself. I recognize that I'm coming off a bad year, maybe even a bad decade. Dealing with: the death of my beloved Dad; a child who was sick so often that his principal recommended he just get his GED; the deterioration and death of my mother-in-law; the death of our dog; the end of my run in our local paper; the end of my youth; and the end of being the mom of young boys who loved my company.

Lots of unpleasant stuff. But it's time to stop wallowing in sadness and get on with it. Fergie sings, "I've got to get a move on with my life..." Yeah. Time to be a big girl now and see what the second half of my life will bring!

Good for you for going on with your life and not wallowing, Caryl.

Now, as far as the song goes, it is a little creepy in the middle with the "we'll be playmates & lovers" in the context of the whole schoolyard thing! What the? But, it is an awesome song for bellowing in the car all alone!

The last comment was written by Jennifer, not me!! I'm new at this blogging thing. I edited my post but tried to save her comment and when it showed up it had my name as the author of it.

I don't have time to figure this out, so I'm leaving it!

Jennifer, I had the same thought. Playmates and lovers? I would have rewritten that.

I don't want to grow up, I'm a Toys R Us kid . . . I know you've had a bad year, caryl, but you're right, you need to start looking foward. Don't make it sound like a death sentence though, life is fun!
