Good Monday Morning Peeps...

Wow, what a whirlwind weekend. This post will be just a weekend wrap up of all that occurred since Thursday. Nothing majorly exciting, but a busy weekend none the less. I had the day off Friday, and boy was I excited. I slept in, of course. Woke up...

Mind Spill...

I am shocked at how fast time is flying by. Can you believe it is almost September already? I can not. I am thinking that someone hit fast forward on me, and I'd like that someone to just step away from the button already. So many things are changing,...

Living a Double Life....

I learned a lot of things being a child of an alcoholic father. I learned that alcohol can change your personality, and that is not always a good thing. I learned that alcohol allows you to say and do things you would not normally do, and that is not...

Friday Night Football Picture Blog........

Nothing ushers in fall, like Friday night high school football. In our neck of the woods, the rivalries come out as fast as the team t-shirts do. We are blessed with some really spirited fans and players. Friday night I attended the game at my Alma...

Feeling Blessed....

Today I feel blessed. My Sunshine is home, and we spent several hours watching television together. We have the same sense of humor, so we can just look at each other and laugh. We watched a comedy from Australia that her boyfriend loaned her. It is...

A Critical Look....

I consider myself a kind and loving person, non critical in most situations. Saturday I found myself in a situation that brought my critical side out, and I so hate that. I went with R.J. to watch pee wee football. When we arrived at the high school,...

The Blob..for Real!!

When I was a child, the original movie The Blob came out. It was on Shock Theater, and it scared the living hell out of me. Now don't get me wrong, I loved scary movies back then. Our entire neighborhood would pile into our living room on sleeping bags...

Friday Night Under The LIGHTS.....

It is that time of year again, time for Friday night football. All across our great nation, in little towns and big cities the boys are preparing for the game. Cheerleaders are excited to cheer, and players are pumped to hit the field. It is an...

Loving Anyway...

I was recently asked by a dear friend how I could love and miss my father, when he terrified me so as a child. How could I love him anyway, regardless of his emotional abuse of me? I make no secret of the fact that I was raised with an alcoholic...

Manipulators.....

I am always astonished at how manipulators work in our lives. Cunning and sweet to your face, whilst rubbing your back to find a soft spot to stab you. I think a manipulator is one of the worst kind of people you can encounter. I hate two faced people,...

Simple Pleasures of Everyday Living......

Heck folks, I feel lucky today. Why? Well I started lunch for the little people, and on the menu is corn dogs. I purchase State Farm Beef Corn Dogs, to meet federal guidelines. Last week I opened a pack of 8 to find an extra corn dog in the pack, a...

Welcome to Button Ville.....

Was just over at BootLady's blog reading her morning post about the silly drama seekers on thoughts.com. Pitapie made a comment about having a "smack this blogger upside the head" button beside the "be the first person to like this on facebook button."...

Facebook Like (Dislike) Button.....

For the record, I am a member of facebook. It is a social network that allows me to connect with family members/friends and my work families. It is not a place I drop my private thoughts, I reserve that for thoughts.com. I have been a member of...

Yes It Does Matter....

Anyone that says that all shampoos are the same, is an idiot. My hair stylist is awesome, he really is. He has his hands in more heads in this city, than anyone else. His advice on shampoo is this..buy a plain shampoo and skip the expensive stuff. It...

Thursday Again..an Update..pics.

I heard some tragic news last night. A friend of the family was killed in a motorcycle accident at his home, he was 15. No helmet and just goofing off I am sure. So tragic. It always amazes me that in a moments time, life changes forever. He comes from...

The Sun Goes to Bed...pics

Every night all over the world, the sun goes to bed. Tonight  I wanted to show you how he went to bed at my house...Enjoy!!   I think he went to sleep in grand fashion. Nice and peaceful and...

Skeptical Me....

This afternoon, CB and I will trip over to the high school for a financial planning session with the Vocational Rehabilitation Program Director (he has dyslexia).  She will show us how to budget the money CB is supposed to receive from this program. RJ...

Happy Birthday Daddy..

When I was young, one of my dads favorite sayings was "Don't go away mad, just go away".  This actually meant I need some quiet space, and if you don't give it to me, you are going to pay the consequences. I soon learned the consequences were not...

My Stupid Card.....

So folks, yesterday I figured out I had made a huge mistake. One that was going to make some people upset and make me look really stupid. Like the adult that I am, I owned up to my mistake, and accepted my stupid card. A little history first... ...

A New Beginning...

Yesterday I spent a great deal of my day on the phone talking to the powers that be at the local college. On Aug. 28Th classes begin for C.B. and we have not registered for classes yet. He did get his financial aid in on time, and was awarded a Pell...
