Sorry that I haven't been around. I do want to

I am kinda unsure of my plans the next few I will make it around to my buddy blogs sometime soon.....Tomorrow I go to Mississippi with him to bring his daughters to the ex-wife. After that we're coming back here for our 2 month anniversary. We have been looking into cabins in Tenn & North Carolina. He wants a view, I want to make snow angels. We'll see what the weather holds....

Hi Everyone! I hope you and your family had a very Merry Christmas! I hope 2008 will be your best year yet!

I had a really nice Christmas. My aunt, the professor and I had Christmas at my house. We all cooked and dined as it rained outside here. It was a cold my lit fire place was wonderful!

My parents ended up with a stomach virus and did not come here. It was the first Christmas I have spent without my parents. It was a sad in that aspect, especially with the year that my parents (mom's cancer) have struggled through.

The professor and I exchanged gifts. He can be very thoughtful! He found me a New Orleans newspaper printed SAINT book with all of the success last year after the hurricane and the trials and tribulations that faced the city. He also got me some Fleur De Lis bookends,a Fleur DE lis gold book mark, a DVD series Kings of Queens, and 3 carat peridot ring. He took me into every jewelry store in the mall and many magazines/flyers. He found the earrings to match in another store. He really does have a sweet tender heart. We had a nice romantic Christmas at my house.

I came to work today. I did NOTHING yesterday, I was a sick lazy bum. I really felt crappy. I am feeling a bit better today.
My kids are watching Sponge Bob Christmas. THey made cards for the cafe ladies. The ladies seemed so pleased. =)
I need to wrap stuff at home. I need to clean house from top to bottom. I have all of mom's stuff wrapped. I need to wrap 3 or more things for R. I think I went overboard for him. My aunt is always the hardest to buy for!!!!! She has everything. I got her gift cards to a few places for meals. She's like me and chooses not to cook at much-- for just her. Know what I mean?
My kids brought me all kinds of stuff today from chocolate to candles...two of my favorite things.

Thursday, December 20, 2007


I made in ***A*** in my graduate class this semester. Yeah!!!

I'm home from work today. I just can't handle feeling this crappy and screaming at kids to hush.
I absolutely did the right thing. Ughhhh

I am feeling a bit of 'undeclared confusion" at the moment. Last night he called and had a few things to tell me. One was that he wants me to go to a party for one of his faculty members Sat night at a blues martini bar.

Second, he says I did tell you my Ex is coming in for a night to see the girls when they are here a day or two after Christmas. I told her she could stay here. I was totally silent. I trust him...but I guess I wanted sometype of input asked of me, rather than him saying this is whats happening. Are ya with me?

He did tell me over a week ago he doesn't want to see anyone else and wants us in a committed relationship.

I need to go back to bed and then wrap some gifts.
Hope you feel better today than I do.

Wednesday, December 19, 2007

I left work at noon....and I have accomplished a few things...but my head hurts, my throat hurts and I have a miserable cough. Oh, and did I mention Flo came to see me at the beginning of the week. What else can I add to my misery?

Tuesday, December 18, 2007

Meow Meow Meow

I got out of bed and to work in 15 minutes this morning. I didn't however put a lick of makeup on. I have been at my school for 4 years, never has this happened before. I spent 2 hours up coughing last night. R spent the night and I knew I would keep him I finally got out of bed and on the couch for my coughing couch reclines so I wasn't lying flat which helps.......
My work Christmas party was last night. The 6th grade teachers all brought a dish. I made Jambalaya for 40. Good house will smell like it for a week.
It was at my favorite teachers house....she just had it built this summer and it is simply lovely.
Reagan went with me = )

"Last night my sister and I were sitting in the den and I said to her, 'I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle to keep me alive. That would be no quality of life at all, If that ever happens, just pull the plug.' So she got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out my wine. She's such a bitch!" Maxine
The concert was great! Jake is such a HOttie!!! He has a hit "YEE HAW" and closed the show with it and a young girl from the audience, she must be 5 yrs old. It was the cutest thing to hear her sing yee haw for the audience.
Sugarland was awesome. I wish I had Jennifer Nettles energy and her voice. She has a set of lungs on her. They did a couple of cover tunes that surprised me...They closed the show with all 3 acts coming out.
Well unfortunately, I have a sinus head from the depths of hell. I was miserable last night and this morning. I am taking meds...but tonight is our school Christmas party and the 6th grade teachers are the one catering.SO i spent a couple of hours yesterday cooking 4 pots of jambalaya--chicken, shrimp and sausage.....R is coming with me which really excites me.
He finally decided he doesn't want to see other people.... = ) Ya'll I really dig him.
I feel like I get to show him off!!!!! Did I tell you Auburn University called him and he has an interview set up early January?? I'm excited for him because it will be a step up and more money and a more prestigious college. On the down side, I am not sure what that means as far as travel's a 40 minute drive over there and if it's 5 days a week, it will get old soon.

Friday, December 14, 2007

Well, I have an evening that I am looking forward to enjoying! I have floor tickets to see Jake Owen/Little Big Town/Sugarland. I saw Sugarland open for Brooks and DUNN 2 years ago and they were great! Jennifer Nettles has so much energy on stage and damn does she have a set of lungs on her. She did a song with Jon Bon Jovi last year.
Can I tell you I am excited that it's finally FRIDAY?
R is going to the concert with me. Romeo is going with his g'friend. I hope I get to see her! Several of my students have told me they are going too. My only decision is what the hell am I going to wear?????
Tomorrow-- I get to sleep in !!! YEAHHH!!!!!!! Really, to be able to sleep til 10.. God do I need that. I"m moving a bit s-l-0-w-l-y today.
I have just a couple of gifts left to buy~~
Hope you have a great weekend!!!!!!!!!!

Wednesday, December 12, 2007

It's a stange day for me. I wish I was at home. Just didn't wanna move from my bed this morning!

Yesterday, I took R 3 balloons, some flowers and chocolate fudge brownies. (He LOVES chocolate) Well, he told me to call after my work meetings. I did he answered his work phone, "R's house of flowers". I thought it was cute. I had a choral concert last night and invited him to go with me. We met for dinner and he said he was going home from there. He says "The flowers and stuff was a bold move for you". I wasn't quite sure how to take that ~~~ I wanted a THANK YOU !

He asked me to come over after the concert, but I went home instead. He just emailed and said he stayed home from work today that he wasn't feeling well. I told him i'd pick up anything he needed after work...if he didn't need anything then I was going home. I have so much stuff to do at home --I have been neglecting!!!!
Has everyone but me finished their Christmas shopping????

I wanted to pass out my N.O. goodies, spices and mixes to my teacher friends by the end of this week...otherwise we get stuff from kids later in the week and wanted to be seperated from the other stuff. I am cranky today can you tell???????

Tuesday, December 11, 2007

I'm not feeling quite that bad...actually I woke up with a smile on my face and my guy next to me. I was so comfy that I did not want to get out of bed at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I made it here barely. I am in a rather good mood. I played Jeopardy with my Language Arts classes today. We covered vocabulary, spelling, parts of speech and a novel we just finished.

I took the liberty to go pick up a Santa balloon,one red and green balloon, 2 brownies and put together a few flowers and drove them over to R's work which is the college. I knew he wasn't there (he was in Atlanta for a conference this morning). So I'll wait til I hear from him. Only one person saw me deliver them to his office.... so I doubt I'll totally freak him out.

Last night he decorated more in my front yard and brought over a wreath for my front door. He really is a home maker....I DIG IT.

How do my blog readers feel...what are your personal thoughts on Eloping????

Monday, December 10, 2007

I'll dedicate this to my dad. As it is his birthday today...however he is on Portsmouth England for business. He is testing some Hovercrafts and their mechanical functions. He designs them and handles Propulsion...I am proud of him....
I did have a really busy weekend. I was sick Thursday night. A god awful tummy virus. I called into work sick Friday. I was up practically all night Thursday running to the bathroom. Can I say YUK!!!!

I had a great day yesterday. I got to wake up to R. We ran a few errands and he grilled shrimp, salmon (in a honey sauce), smoked sausage stuffed with artichoke and cheese. HE also sauteed tomato, squash and zucchini...It was yummy and I have left overs for the whole week!

We just had a really good weekend...lots of positive talking and sweet sentiments. He hung up some more Christmas lights in my front yard. We watched some football. Ya'll It's getting all kinds weird.......I am feeling all warm and fuzzy!!!!

Thursday, December 06, 2007

Well, it's finally Thursday. I am feeling a bit odd. (Sorry that is normal for me).
Last night R surprised me with two bouquets of burgundy and white chrysanthemums. I was in a moo moo doing dishes out of the shower and with my hair on top of my head . I looked like a ton of bricks hit me. Can I say scary?

He came in and grabbed some of the Christmas lights I bought and set them out in my yard. He did a pretty good job. We watched a little tv and talked. He apologized for being a butt head Monday night. He was just really cranky.

Tomorrow is Friday. Can I say AMEN?

How pushy am I to have sent him and email that reads: "OK. You said once or twice that you didn't know what to shop for when it came to me.
I am going to go out on a limb and act completely presumptious...geeze do I hope I am not making a mistake on this one. I was in Sam's last week and saw a couple of things that I liked. So I am going to include a link......please don't misconstrue this as pressure. Think of it as getting to know my taste.....

Sam's Club - Search Results "

OK. I am the star of the show. This last week has been really tough on me. I am close to 2 family members....both of them are ON me about losing weight. One is just not tactful. The other one tries to guilt me into it. She says if you won't do it for me....then do it for your new man. Well, what about losing for the health problems...the high blood pressure and the type 2 diabetes.

I told you he hurt my feelings over the weekend right? Well, we were driving down the road and talking about his ex- whom I liked. He made some comment that she was chunky now...I said "You think she's chunky now?' He says "well yes, she lost alot of weight a couple of years ago I mean she used to be as big as you are" .

Ok my heart sank. I mean really sank. He likes BBW women....and I knew that going into to this...but the comparison he made really distraught me. It ruined my entire day. We ended up talking on my couch that night...he went home and made me brownies of all things. I just started crying. I mean I felt like if anyone was on my side he was. I am not even PMSing. I just lost it. He apologized and said he liked me just the way I was, but if it bothered me why not do something about it.

Last night one of my relatives just laid into me...I finally said "If you and she don't shut up about my weight, I will just quit talking to you". and I hung up the phone.

This is one of the ceiling Murial's in the wedding church of my dreams. I want everyone to know how spectacular this church is!

Below is the out side of the church in the middle of Jackson square. I can dream.

My weekend was alright.... Yesterday was pretty good. I slept in....I was lazy until after noon. I did get alot accomplished though. I managed to cook a couple of dishes. I made a shrimp fettuccine pasta with cheddar cheese and bacon. I also made jambalaya. R came over and blew off my drive way, rearranged my shelving in my garage and changed some outside light bulbs for me. He was feeling like playing house apparently!

We watched the Saints get beat. It was sad. I was upset they lost in the last 20 seconds of the game. PATHETIC.

We rearranged my furniture and put up my Christmas tree. He appreciates balance. I enjoyed the "playing house" aspect. I did dishes, vacuumed, and laundry.
I am being realistic though...I have seen the multi faceted aspect of his personality. He's pretty vocal on some things.

I still need to find something personal to give him. Mustangs are the only connection I have to go on, well o.k. I can gear it towards photography. He has books, I thought about finding a mustang toy of some type.

Saturday, December 01, 2007

Well the hair I am pleased with...The colors are not as drastic as I had hoped...but he always does a great job styling me...I wanna have him here at the house for daily attention.

R hurt my feelings...I just clamed up. I called a friend and she ranted and raved that I not let it ruin my day. I am going to try. He did this before the salon this morning. I went there stayed 3 hours...and then took myself for a manicure. I feel a bit more relaxed.

We met on Halloween---so technically today is a month we have been seeing each other.We have moved so quickly it feels like we have been seeing each other six months. I had an after noon of football planned and my favorite dining establishment booked with reservations for 8. I need to perk up.

I do have a paper to wrap up for my class. I need to email it in the next hour. I better get busy.

Men suck. Sorry. He just hit a nerve.

Friday, November 30, 2007

Thank God it's Friday and that I get to leave work in an hour....AMEN AMEN AMEN

I have a busy day tomorrow. I have a hair appointment at 11:00--- I am soooooooo NOT a morning person. I need to be able to SLEEP in til noon. At least I do not want to have to function (i.e. put on makeup and leave the house) before 10:30. I do however need to get my highlights take care of again--It has been 2 months ok..maybe 3. I am debating on a few colors. I usually go copper and blonde...because my hair is a light brown. I have considered a copper and a darker brown. I usually go pretty safe when it comes to hair. After all, in high school I did dye it every color possible....blonde, black, blue black (gothic look), red...all but green.

LSU play Tennessee in a very important game tomorrow afternoon. (Hence I made the hair appt early) Then I made reservations at my favorite place The Market for tomorrow night. I am taking the professor we met a month ago tomorrow. WOW~ it seems like it has been longer. I hope that is a good sign.
Sunday my SAINTS play Tampa Bay in another really big game. WE NEED to win this one!!!!!

Tonight, Reagan wants me to go to a college basketball game with him tonight. I am not a basketball fan at all. I said no last night , but figured I should change my mind today.

We'll talk about Romeo tomorrow. I have seen him 2 days in a row.

Thursday, November 29, 2007

OK most of you know about my buddy T. He was like an older brother with whom I spent 2-3 days a week with---shopping and dining out. He found the love of his life over Fourth of July weekend. I have seen him twice since July. I was really hurt to begin with. My friend Angel said I was acting like a scorned lover...Well she called last night and left me a few messages on my cell phone. She says well I guess I have been kicked to the curb by you and T. She said she was so upset with T. He found out 10 days ago she might have to have surgery and he just called yesterday. He said he's just been busy. She said to me are you going to leave me too?
Why do people forget about their friends when they start a new relationship?I just don't understand.

On my mind today......
Feeling kinda *unsure* about things today. Nothing has changed, I am just wondering about the whole commitment issue.

Wednesday, November 28, 2007

Well, I was a few minutes late to work this morning. I was sooooo sleepy. To begin with I am NOT a morning person...but the house was cool, the bed was warm....and damn I was comfy! I hit snooze five times. I have to get in bed earlier. How many hours a night do you like to sleep?

Tuesday, November 27, 2007


I really had a great weekend! Sorry ya'll will get tired with my ***blissful*** moments. They are few and far between, so I am trying to enjoy them.
The presentation went all right. I am happy it's over with. I was bummed she gave me 8 out of 10 points. MEOW.
I am thinking of putting together a few *coupons* for R for this weekend. Wanna throw me a couple of ideas? I have a few of my own....and wanted some of my *love bloggers* to offer feedback~~~ THINK THINK THINK~ Mick, tell me from a guys point what kind of coupon you'd like besides sex.... a one month anniversary. (My god we have moved quickly)....I am going to take him to my favorite place for dinner Sat night. He wants to watch the LSU Tennessee game Sat afternoon. I called this morning and tried to get a hair appointment for Sat morning, so I could try to look fabulous!
The salon isn't opened yet = (

Monday, November 26, 2007

ok, MY 'DETAILS" as requested by BarnGoddess.

Last week R had both of his girls here for the weekend and thru Thanksgiving. They were adorable, I might add. We did alot of stuff together. Fantasy in Lights, Drag race, Dinner at Olive Garden, a Mexican place here and pizza with my aunt..(all of us).

Well, Thanksgiving day we drove to Hattisburg to drop the girls off at their mom's (his ex-wife). I got to meet the ex. They were married 11 years, right out of high school. I liked her! Really, I felt like if we had met under any other circumstances...we would be friends. She was really sweet and I thought she was cute. She is remarried and has 2 step kids as well. I also met her hubby. He wasn't what I expected.
My parents picked me up in Hattisburg that afternoon. (they met very briefly)I spent the night with them and he stayed at his parents.
Friday, he drove to my parents house and we went to the French Quarter for the day. He put up with my shopping! (BIG SCORE THERE). We strolled down Royal street, ate lunch on Bourbon Street and shopped in the French Market. We walked along the river walk and took pictures. Most importantly, he went to St. Louis Cathedral with me. OK this is a big deal because---as you know he has commitment issues---and he knows this is the church I have always dreamed about getting married in--It is the heart of Jackson Square and simply exquisite with the stained glass and murals on the ceiling.
We also went to the Piano bar at Pat Obriens and had a few drinks. He enjoyed that!
That evening we went to Metairie (suburb) and met one of my best friends AMY. We shopped at the mall there and he found his girls some Christmas gifts. He also helped me shop at Lane Bryant. We all 3 of us went to ACME Oyster house and had a YUMMY meal! Shrimp po-boys , grilled bbq'd and fried. We shared a chocolate caramel SINFUL slice of pie. Can I say OMG????

We went back and stayed at my parents for the night. Mom made us a great breakfast. She made Eggs Golden Rod. Again YUM!
We headed back to Ga, but stopped at the Outlet mall in Gulfport Miss. He found some Rock Port shoes and I found a Lane Bryant Outlet. He also brought me into a jewelry store. He wanted to see what I liked and showed me the wedding band he would like to have. I was a bit shocked but overjoyed in the same. I bought a few jackets. We drove on to Mobile and found an incredible Oyster place for a late lunch--it was 4:00 by now. We made it back to my house about 10:30 and watched the end of the IRON bowl.
Sunday he built us a fire in my fireplace....He also made a red sauce with smoked sausage and stuffed pasta with cheese. We watched the Saints win an actual game...we took a nap...built another fire...and he gave me feedback on the power point presentation I have to give in about an hour and a half.

I had a WONDERFUL WONDERFUL weekend!!! What can I tell you???
I am in serious like! My parents liked R. Amy liked R.
I have a field trip today. I need to get moving.
Have a great day.
Wish me luck on my presentation at the college tonight.

Wednesday, November 21, 2007

First of all....I wanna wish all my blog friends a HAPPY Thanksgiving! May you all have plenty to eat, love around you and happiness inside of you!

Second, wanted everyone to make sure to read the Dear Abby post from 2 days ago. I got it from one of the secretaries at school. It made me smile.

Third, I did some shopping for Christmas at the PX today. I found it it is the 3rd largest in the world, here at Fort Benning. I spents lots of money---I don't have...but 85% was on Christmas Gifts. I did buy myself the Daughtry CD, Lancome eyeliner, lancome eye makeup remover and Vera Wang's newer scent PRINCESS.

How can I slam on the breaks of from serious like to love? I refuse to get my heart pushed into a meat crusher and come out in the form of ground round.

He surprised me by calling last night after he taught his class and said just wanted to warn you I am about 2 minutes from your house. I threw on a tyedye t-shirt and shorts. I looked like bloody hell. He stood at the door with both of his daughters and a bouquet of flowers. It was so sweet. ...they stay about an hour and he danced around my living room with both girls. It was too cute!!!! Today he brought the girls over to meet my aunt and we all went out to dinner. His girls are adorable!!!!!!!!!

Tuesday, November 20, 2007


These made me smile, I hope they do the same for you!
My class was cancelled last night, so I went over to R's place. We ended up going to Fantasy in Lights at Callaway Gardens. We took the girls and the trolley through it. I had a great time!

I need your prayers. I really want this one to work out.
He has commitment issues, so send him positive vibes please!
I mean wow. I have't felt this way in a L-O-N-G time.

It helps that today, I know I have the rest of the week off. The new PX at Fort Benning opens tomorrow and it's HUGE. I get to go shopping again!!! I love to shop!!!!
I am going to go crazy, I can feel it already. Just imagine a discount Dillards!!!!!

OK, give me more ideas for a Christmas gift for R. I know of a couple of things I am getting...a shirt and a Cd he wants, but I want to get something else a bit more personal. Any suggestions??????

Monday, November 19, 2007

Dear Abby,

I am a crack dealer in Beaumont, Texas who has recently been diagnosed as a carrier of HIV visus. My parents live in Fort Worth and one of my sisters, who lives in Pflugerville, is married to a transvestite.

My father and mother have recently been arrested for growing and selling marijuana. They are financially dependent on my other two sisters, who are prostitutes in Dallas.

I have two brothers, one is currrently serving a non-parole life sentence at Huntsville for the murder of a teenage boy in 1994. My other brother is currently in jail awaiting charges of sexual misconduct with his three children.

I have recently become engaged to marry a former prostitute who lives in Longview, she is a part time "working girl. "

All things considered, my problem is this. I love my fiance and look forward to bringing her into the family. I certainly want to be totally open and honest with her.

Should I tell her about my cousin who supports Hillary Clinton for president?

My football team lost.

I have to go to work today.

I need to clean house.

I have more college work to do.

I need money and a maid.

Saturday, November 17, 2007

I am hard at work on a PowerPoint presentation for my night class at the college. I will be thrilled when I finish..It is the one assignment I keep putting off!
R is driving back from Miss with his girls. We went to Red Lobster for dinner last night. I refused to work on my stuff after a long day at school...instead I watched the Pursuit of Happiness with Will SMith. It was a touching film.
The weather is awesome here. I will save on electricity this month!
Unfortunately, I went to ULTA last night and spent 100 bucks. I am soooo OCD when it comes to shopping. I am a kid in a candy store when it comes to cosmetics and jewelry! I bought some Nick Chavez hair care products. I have seen his line on QVC for a couple of years and wanted to try.....I like it from just washing last night. I bought his "Thick N Full" line.
Anyone ever heard of this Beverly Hills designer???
I want to be watching football instead I am typing.

Thursday, November 15, 2007

Here's hoping the professor turns out to be the genuine article! I can deal with a few abnormalities....

I went to a Staff Development seminar today. It was alright actually. I was blessed with L and H that I work with----two of my favorite people. The topic was geared to English---which is my field.

She let us out an hour earlier than if I had gone to school. I hopped into my car and went to the professor's house. He took the day off cause he was feeling crappy. She let us go at 3 and I knew he had a doc appt--they worked him in this morning. So I got there just in time to drive him to his doc's appointment. He invited me to the back for the doc visit, which shocked me. I was expecting to sit in the waiting room. SERIOUSLY~

He said I earned major brownie points for being so thoughtful. = )

He's so hard headed. He went and taught his night class tonight. But he's not going in tomorrow. He's packing, resting and then driving to get his girl's tomorrow night. We're going to dinner on his way out. He wanted to skip rush hour traffic.

Sunday he is (making me go) to a drag race that lasts most of the day. The four of us are should be interesting. At least for me. I have never been to one....Pray for me! (See my city gal roots are coming out)!!!!!!Suggestions? I plan to put on jeans and tennis shoes. (I am missing the SAINTS Game for this) Can you tell now I really like him???????

Wednesday, November 14, 2007

Hey Hey

It's Tuesday. I am taking a break from sorting progress reports. They go out this afternoon. We have Professional Development tomorrow. So I also have to get lesson plans together today for who ever shows up sub wise for me tomorrow. It's just a whirlwind of a week.

I am thinking happy thoughts of the Professor though. I am hopeful. I hope I have the right to feel that way!

Monday, November 12, 2007

Hey there what do you think??? If only I had this kind of confidence!!!!
I had a great weekend. After the professor and Bill met....He took me to dinner at a chinese place. We both giggled over our fortune cookies.
His said: "Watch your relations with other people carefully, be reserved."
Mine said: "Your present plans are going to succeed".
His response was I think ours got mixed up. I have been very inquisitive and somewhat reserved with him. Bloggers, I really like him. He has some wonderful qualities. I think I could really fall for him. I am trying to maintain my cool and not get my heart broken.
Saturday we ran a couple of errands and we went to my Aunt's house so that she could meet him. He felt a bit on guard....if you knew my aunt you would know the HIGH standards she holds. I did ask him to change clothes at his place. He picked out an outfit and I liked another shirt he had better....he changed to make me happy. = P
I took us to dinner after he was so willing to talk to auntie for me. We went back to my place for some football. Then we went to a Blues club for the evening. The music was GREAT! It's a band he likes....
Sunday he went and bought me a small grill and grilled lunch for me and a friend Angel . He said consider the grill a late birthday gift. He knows what a Saints fan I am and cooked while we watched the game and of course talked about him.
******why do men have such an issue with commitment**********

Hi ya'll. It has been a busy weekend for me. I have really slacked in blogger visits and in blogger posts. I apologize cause I really miss your comments when I am away.

Today is Veteran's Day observed and I am off from work, but have class at the college tonight. I debated on going, but I need to save an off day for when I really need it and not when i'm just feeling lazy!

OK just a start of my weekend. Friday, I left work and came home with no plans. About 30 minutes after I got here, by doorbell rang. Romeo showed up. I haven't seen or talked to him in a few weeks even though we live across the street from each other. HE came in and started telling me about the Greg Allman concert last weekend. He said how I should have gone because his girlfriend only knew a couple of the songs. Well, if you guys remember I asked him to go and he flat out said no, he had other plans. Well, my phone rings and I have Direct Tv--so the caller is displayed on my television. It's Reagan and wants to know if we can go to dinner somewhere. Of course I said yes but that I needed to get dressed and paint my face...he said he'd come over. Well, R is sitting across from me and listened to out entire conversation and plans we have covering the next few weekends...So when we hung up he gave me some ?????? about all of this. I told him a few complimentary things about the Professor. He seemed a bit taken back. I told him over again, you and I talked about dating and our timing is just off, and you seem pretty content about your g' what's up? He said well you never know how things will work out. I just don't know ..Well next thing you know he says there is a car in your driveway. Professor made it here in like 10 minutes. R jumped up and said do you want me to go get the door for you. Ya'll he was nervous. HELL, I was nervous! Professor looked good! He was in a coat and tie....I was impressed. They introduced themselves and I stood there in my living room a tad bit uncomfortable. They talked cars cause Prof has a fully loaded decked out Mustang that really is sweet. Bill left and I know when he pulled up all weekend he saw his car over here. I am just wondering if he is having second thoughts now?????

Comments on any of this????

Divorce Letter

Dear Wife:

I'm writing you this letter to tell you that I'm leaving you forever! I've been a good man to you for seven years and I have nothing to show for it. These last two weeks have been hell. Your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today and that was the last straw.Last week, you came home and didn't even notice that I had a new haircut, had cooked your favorite meal and even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers. You ate in two minutes, and went straight to sleep after watching all of your soaps.

You don't tell me you love me anymore; you don't want sex or anything that connects us as husband and wife. Either you're cheating on me or you don't love me anymore; whatever the case, I'm gone!Your EX-Husband

P.S. Don't try to find me. Your SISTER and I are moving away to West Virginia together! Have a great life!

Her reply:

Dear Ex-Husband:

Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. It's true that you and I have been married for seven years, although a good man is a far cry from what you've been. I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining and griping. Too bad that doesn't work.

I DID notice when you got a hair cut last week, but the first thing that came to mind was 'You look just like a girl!' Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can't say something nice, I didn't comment. And when you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY SISTER, because I stopped eating pork seven years ago. About those new silk boxers: I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, and I prayed that it was a coincidence that my sister had just borrowed fifty dollars from me that morning.After all of this, I still loved you and felt that we could work it out. So when I hit the lotto for ten million dollars, I quit my job and bought us two tickets to Jamaica. But when I got home you were gone. Everything happens for a reason, I guess.I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted. My lawyer said the letter you wrote ensures you won't get a dime from me.

So take care.


Your Ex-Wife, Rich As Heck and Free!

P.S. I don't know if I ever told you this, but my sister Carla was born Carl. I hope that's not a problem

I am wishing it was Friday! Meow Meow Meow

R called tonight I swear we can talk about lots of stuff.....and it is never a 20 minute convo...

I am taking my antibiotics..and right now feeling kinda drowsy. I need to go crash.

If you could have 5 things right now what would they be??????

  1. Explosive, butterflies in your stomach, true, faithful love
  2. Have my closest friends near me
  3. lots of money to pay the bills and to shop with!
  4. The Saints WIN the Superbowl
  5. Ronnie Dunn at my discretion to sing to me and only me whenever I want him too!

See ya'll, I don't want much!!

I went to the doc yesterday and managed to get a flu shot. = ) Some of my students are getting sick already so I thought it might be wise. I was checked for a MRSA spot on my neck but it ends up it was just a pimple. I am thankful. It is a gawd awful staph infection that is rampant in the schools all over the country. SO AMEN!!!!!
I'm on meds for an ear infection...which explains why my glands in my neck hurt which is where my pimple is...hence my concern.
I must admit I am smitten with Reagan. He called last night and I wasn't home. I just sent him an email. I hope this can work out. I was stuck at Walmart last night waiting on prescriptions. So I found a cute Winnie the Pooh card. It says something like:
Today I am thinking happy thoughts
Tomorrow, I find even happier thoughts about you.
Do you think it was ok?
Well I mailed it to his house today. What do my blogger buddies think???

Monday, November 05, 2007 weekend was busy. How about yours???

Reagan is the professor. He has quite the resume. He came over Sat afternoon to watch the LSU Bama football game. LSU won!!!! I was pleased! = } I put out 2 trays of munchies....fresh broccoli, carrots, and cheese cubes. Also, some crackers and dip. We had great conversation and are very open with each other on topics. He is easy to be with! We snuggled up on the love seat for the game and for the movie Night at the Museum.
He came back Sunday afternoon and cooked me dinner! He brought over fresh shrimp, tomato, squash, and zucchini. He sauteed the veggies in olive oil and added them to a Alfredo sauce with pasta. It was yummy! I was impressed. Ladies, he even did the dishes!

Yesterday was a bit odd though. His Ex was head of West Minister at the local college where he teaches and where I attend. They had a reception after church yesterday with First Presbyterian where I have attended and where my aunt is a prominent member. Well, his ex came into town for this event and actually had a few words as a short presentation. My aunt went to check her out. Reagan was going to go but wasn't up for the "social engagement". So my aunt gave me a complete description. I have only seen one picture. I was indifferent. She's tall, no make up, but pretty and quite bright. She was also very active in the community.

When we left this morning, my back tire was really low...he took out his gage and then actually had an automatic tire pump and inflated...hooked it up and my car got me to work safely. He could come in quite handy.

I'm smitten but also feeling really guarded after a convo we had at 2:00a.m. We have moved so incredibly fast...I mean we met for dinner Wed and had only talked on line for a week before hand. We spent damn near the whole weekend together.

I'm sleepy.

Friday, November 02, 2007

It's FRIDAY!!! WAHOOOOOO Can I scream any louder??????? My kiddies at work have lost their minds and I am soon to follow.

A dear friend is having a medical procedure today and needs your prayers. So please send them.
On a positive note (Yep---twice in one week I am positive...I am going for a record! )
The professor emailed me three times yesterday and called me after teaching his class last night. I was on the phone for almost 3 hours. There is not a lack for conversation or for topics.
So far so good. He wanted me to go to a car race tonight. We are having a school dance to help out our PTA and lots of my kids want me here. So tomorrow he's coming over to watch the Alabama Vs. LSU game at 5:00. I suppose I need to get some munchies in....Suggestions?????

He's sweet and flirty. He's really bright. We have some common interests such as education, football, photography and travel. He's also OCD. So I hope that won't I am a total OCD personality. He hugged me the other night after dinner. I kissed him on the cheek. It was sweet.
When he called he informed me that he had talked to a coworker about our date yesterday. Funny because, I spoke to 2 of my co workers about him. He judges the National History Day
projects at my school and has for several years. It is really odd that we have never come in contact with each other before now. Two of the teachers I really like gave him thumbs up and spoke highly of his intellectual capability. One of the had him tutor her daughters in high school and college.

Ok...I don't want to get my hopes too high...but he's definitely got some possibilities. I haven't said that in quite sometime when it comes to dating and men.

Thursday, November 01, 2007

Well, I am feeling kinda good today. I had an Internet date last night. I think it went really well. We stayed at the restaurant 3 1/2 hours just talking. He is working on his Ph.D. He is a professor at a local college and has recently applied at Auburn. He'll find out in March.

He's attractive....from a small town in Mississippi and enjoys cars. He's divorced and has two girls...They are still in Miss. So his hometown is about an hour from my parents. It's a small world. I enjoyed the conversation and look forward to another date. Wish me luck.
I am not getting my heart set.....but he certainly has several of the qualities that I want in a mate. So we'll just wait and see....

Back to work I go. I get kids in 20 minutes....

Tuesday, October 30, 2007

After all of the chemotherapy, surgery and daily radiation my mom endured until very recently...please ladies check yourself and visit your doc yearly for his testing!!!!!!


Monday, October 29, 2007

Do any of my plus size friends have any favorite on line sites for lingerie?

Sunday, October 28, 2007

OK.I am worn smack out.

Today was a day just for me....well, me and my credit card. I needed a day to shop. I spent the whole day in Atlanta.I hit 4 different malls. Yeah!!!! I haven't been to Atlanta since I met Mick there over a month ago. I spent almost 300 bucks. I found several tops, some sexy lingerie, and some beauty products from the Body shop. I use their tea tree oil, seaweed wash and I am trying some of their eyeshadow. They are earth and animal friendly....both of which make me happy.

Those of you who have been with my blog for a year or more know their are 2 things God did NOT give me...

1.) a green thumb

2.) a sense (okay--ANY SENSE) of direction.

I was so proud of myself for getting to 4 malls in Atlanta all by myself--ok help from Map quest..but still. Atlanta is soooooooooooooooo spread out. N'awlins is not...It has tons of one way streets, but it is tiny in comparison.

I did manage to hit wal-mart when i made it back home, but unfortunately the pharmacy was I left with cut frozen okra instead. Tomorrow, I make Gumbo. (before the Saints game)---AMEN we finally have a cool breeze outside. I LOVE COOL WEATHER.

Ok, I'll leave you with a thought or I attempt to go beddy bye.

Tuesday, October 23, 2007

Well....wanting public opinion for a friend. For my bloggers that are married what was your wedding song? For those of you not married just yet---what 3 songs would you want played at your wedding???

Thanks..may this Wed truly have a HUMP of happiness shoved into it!!!!

Monday, October 22, 2007

Yep. This is how my day went----

Mean people SUCK. Especially those who try to make up for their inadequacies by being BOSSY.

Sunday, October 21, 2007

I heard "Our Lips are Sealed" on the radio this morning and I can't get it out of my head.

Lazy, that's me. I took this weekend and only did a few things that are worthy of mentioning. I changed sheets, did laundry, took out trash, and paid bills.
I am trying to make myself get started on a PowerPoint presentation and I am totally not motivated. I have several projects for my night class and I can't seem to want to start to put my brain in gear~
I got some really bad news the end of last week and I have been really sad about it. Tigger is my 20 yr old kitty that is at my parents house. He was named after John Taylor the bassist in Duran Duran. He has been the coolest kitty in the world. He has had a tough time with arthritis in the last 2 years. The vet has tried some meds and its helped some. Well, he went for his annual last week along with Boris his best playmate who is 16. Tigger has muscle cancer. Hi has a cyst that has developed on his tail bone. The doc said with his age, that surgery probably isn't an option. Boris has lost 6 pounds in the last year, he looks really ill. The vet did blood work on him and thinks he has a thyroid problem. If that turns out the be the case he may have 6 months.

I took these pictures when I was home for Linda's wedding a month or so ago. Please pray for my man. He has the sweetest disposition and such a way with people.

Friday, October 19, 2007

Finally you are getting to see some of my birthday concert pics. I love this fella!!!!

AMEN . Yes, I said AMEN.

It is finally Friday. I have to do a couple of things but nothing compared to what I did last Friday night. I'm a bit ready to relax, and by God I deserve it!

I do have a couple of projects to work on for my class at the college..but other than that...I am free as a bird to sleep late, love on my kitties and watch football. There are several SEC games tomorrow and My Saints play Atlanta Sunday at 1:00. I got TONS of grief from my Atlanta Falcons fans at school. So my boys have to represent as my kids would say this Sunday!

I am currently munching on Doritos and a couple of cheese cubes left over from the luncheon. I brought home a really yummy squash casserole for dinner from school today. I refuse to cook.

Hope all is well in your world.

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

OK FINALLY I added my pics to kodak easy share. I did have 293 of them. So I will slowly share them with ya'll over the next week or so...I mean I figured 300 of them you'd rather not have on one post...besides you need to see something in between all of my complaints RIGHT?????
This was my centerpiece for out luncheon last weekend. Fresh cut flower blooms, a few rocks and water. They were nice floating!

This was one of the place settings. I wish I had taken a good picture of my Goblets. They are crystal etched Fleur De Lis glasses. I found them at the hospital gift shop when my mom had surgery about 6 months ago.

Looking at this pic, I wished I had opened the blinds just a bit. Oh well.

One of the best parts was desert! A chocolate DOBERGE cake from New Orleans...Gambino's bakery.

Why does chocolate have to taste so damn good????

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

My random thoughts today:

Feeling funky.

I didn't sleep real well last night.

You have just entered my own pity party.

I'm single.

I spent my whole paycheck for the month and then some = (

I feel alone.

I'm fat.
I'm tired.

Monday, October 15, 2007


Ok now that I have that off of my chest. I am not a morning person. YUK.

My SAINTS finally won a game!!! WAHOOOOO!!!!!!! It was a good game against Seattle Seahawks~~~

The weekend went well. The luncheon was a hit. I have people asking for recipes! My Fleur De Lis Goblets (crystal etched ) were a hit...and my red beans, my brushetta shrimp any my tomato basil soup--it is so rich. Things went well, i got compliments on everything it seemed. The silver, my house, my wood floors, my decor and most importantly the food. I assure you no one left hungry! = )

Not to mention after all of that work my house is spotless, and I refuse to clean anything besides dishes and laundry for 2 weeks.

I took a few pics--not many but I will share sometime this week.

No make up news to share today...besides MAKE UP SURE HELPS ME FEEL BETTER !!!!

Friday, October 12, 2007

Luncheon for 6

Well, finally it is Friday!!! This has been a long and busy week for me! I am thankful it is finally almost over!! One of the teachers I work with has had a hard time adjusting to the new school. So her kids made her cards earlier in the week and today they are throwing her a surprise party. They brought chips, dip, ice cream, cupcakes and coca cola....They are going to get her in the bathroom to surprise her as they set up the room.

I am almost finished with planning my menu for tomorrow afternoons party at my house. I have 6 teachers coming over. Tell me what you think about food choices....

Paula Deens Cucumber/Dill dip/dressing with pretzels

An assortment of cheese slices with crackers

First off everyone gets Tomato Basil soup with Parmesan croutons and Asia go cheese sprinkled

Second, They get a choice between New Orleans Red Beans and Rice
Chicken Ambassador--which is chicken stuffed with spinach and cream cheese along with a sweet potato casserole

Dessert: is a DOBERGE cake from New Orleans or a Vanilla creme filled Almond Croissant from New Orleans

Drinks: Red or white wine, tea or a mixed drink of choice.

Your comments REALLY ??? BE kind or not. I will not be insulted!!!

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

I felt REALLY yuckky today. My day just started awful. I woke to my house alarm going off at 4:30 this morning. I freak out and think someone is in my house. I grab my gun...and start prowling. The security people called to see if I was alive.
I am left with two options. The alarm was so loud whomever ran like hell the other way or the wind was fierce and blew a window and the contact point may have been jiggled. Needless to say I did not get back to sleep.
I realize my tummy is NOT happy with me. I am a type 2 diabetic. My doctor has been on me to take Glucophage on a regular basis. Well, after my doc visit last week, I have really been trying to get into a routine. The problem is that it TEARS up my stomach. I have to eat with it. I have tried just a glass of milk and no can do. He says it takes some people a month to adjust other a year, but that I needed to keep trying. Well, I took 2 pills yesterday. One at lunch and one with dinner. I was a miserable woman this morning. He wants me taking 4 pills a day. OMG
I tried to call subfinder only to find out it was out of order. Luckily, I woke up a sub at 6:00 a.m. and she took my classes. Then I called a co- worker ok two co workers and my principal. Then I typed up lesson plans. I mean damn I worked more this morning before 6:30 than I do all all morning on some days.
Any suggestions on the coating of tummy? Christine? Any others with Type 2?
I am going for some pepto and then to bed...... in hopes of sound sleep.

Tuesday, October 09, 2007


I am a bit bummed that I haven't had many comments as of late. *sad face* = + (

I skipped class last night and went shopping for a new tv stand for my other bedroom that I am trying to redecorate. I finally found one for 100 bucks at Big Lots. Well, Angel drove me around in her dad's truck until we found something. Well, I called Romeo across the street and got his voice mail. He called me back about ten minutes later. I asked him to meet me at my house and help us unload this HEAVY box from her truck. Sure enough he came over, helped us carry this in and he put it together! I spent 2 1/2 hours. He is so sweet and funny. I really like him. I made it clear that he is never home. He spends so much time at the girlfriends house. *sigh*

He met Angel for the first time. He had her laughing in stitches. He does just enough to flirt with me....She thought he was cute and fun to be with. I REALLY wish he was single!

Well, how does your world feel today?

Make Up Mondays

A *quickie*---we all know those can be sometimes!! (= P )

Ladies, when you are applying foundation or concealer---NEVER use your index finger. It has more power than your middle or fourth finger. It will stretch your skin and do more damage. Especially in the delicate eye area.

Sunday, October 07, 2007

This is what LSU was serving as they played against Fla this evening. It was a hell of a game! I mean WOW. Back and forth and I really enjoyed each quarter.....I love my football!!!!

Now if Only My SAINTS can provide the same sort of stamina tomorrow against Carolina.

Saturday, October 06, 2007

It's Saturday...I don't have any kids!!!!! Wahoooooo
Sorry it has been a hectic week. I am happy to have some peace and quiet.

I do have TONS I mean TONS of stuff to do at home. I bought a new coffee and end tables last weekend and I am waiting for the Ashley to deliver them. I have dishes to do, a dishwasher to unload....bills to pay, laundry to do, boxes to consolidate...garbage to throw out. Can I tell you tons of shit! I need a maid here with me today, preferably one that locks like Matthew Mc or Keith Urban or Alec a pair of shorts and a duster....I don't want much.

Wednesday, October 03, 2007

OK, so my day went alright. ........

I made it through the day okay. I decided to work when I got home. I am in the process of resorting and decluttering one of my bedrooms---that I have forever called the "cat room". It houses their food, treats, toys and litter boxes. It also holds 7 or 8 boxes of stuff along with my treadmill, an entertainment center and a TV....It did hold my DVDs and my old cassettes (yes, people I am that ancient when it comes to my music) You are lucky I didn't say vinyl.

I was sorting through and mind you managed to ditch 2 garbage bags full of door bell rings~ I look to see whose car is car. So I throw my school clothes back on and find Romeo at my door. I feel like I looked like crap as I had my hair up and feeling in the declutter mood. He comes in and say you don't have any light s on...well, Yes I do...but there on in the back bedroom because I am working in there....So he decides to make it clear he came for a visit. So i go in the living room, put my stuff down and turn on a light. Our conversations go well. His grandmother just found out she has cancer in her lymph nodes. She is 83 so he's a bit concerned even though they don't have the best relationship. The girlfriend is still in the picture. I enjoy his company---but I would have finished those boxes if he hadn't made it over here. Oh well. He was here 2 1/2 hours. He just left.

I'm going to grab a bite of dinner and shower......

Will my timing ever be right?

Monday, October 01, 2007

I feel like a damn cow today.

"Flo" is here visiting for starters....

Ok, I had my aunt over here last night she wanted to type some stuff for a family reunion in a week. She doesn't know her way around Microsoft Word, so she comes here for help. Well, I was attempting to change a vacuum bag out last night and she came in to she decides as I am sitting on the floor and rummaging through a box of flip the switch for the vacuum. Well EVERYTHING flies out as I have the bag 1/2 way off...I have the worst head ache sinus ache known to man today.

Second, I don't dream frequently but i woke up SCREAMING this morning at 4 a.m. from a dream. It was awful.

Third, I woke up twice with a charlie horse in my calf twice..apparently before and after the dream. I got up at 8a.m. and ate a banana, knowing the potassium is supposed to help. I have another for tomorrow morning......Any other suggestions from those of you who had had a cramp in the calf???My leg is so sore today.

I got up and got out of the house hoping to get my mind off of head ache my weary body from lack of GOOD sleep and a ache in my calf. I went all over! Target, Lazy-Boy, Rooms to GO, Ashley Furniture, and Big lots. I bought a new coffee table and end pieces from Ashley.

I have a 4th bedroom that I call the Cat I use it for storage, kitty stuff, a bike and my treadmill. I am probably getting a cat door installed tomorrow from my laundry area to my garage so kitties can eat and dump out there..My only concern is when I leave in a morning and my garage door opens. My kitties are inside kitties.....a fear of one of them getting out and getting hurt. IDEAS?????

Thursday, September 27, 2007

Busy Busy Busy YES I AM!!!
I didn't have a moment peace since I got up this morning.
First, I wanted to throw the alarm across the room when it went off this morning. After I paint my face and get dressed I turn off the bedroom light and boom. I step bare footed into regurgitated meow mix on my hard wood floor....Mind you I have 20 minutes to get to work and it takes me 15 to get there. I get to are crying, others want to talk to me because they trust me from last year. Some idiot wants to start a fight with one of my best girls from last on planning I am seeking out her new teachers and the I have a personal errand to run, one of the counselors needs me, but I have to talk her into tomorrow for an ESOL student before a HELL of a conference we have scheduled for 9:00 a.m. I am trying to leave and get to m y car a student chases me down to tell me she wants me to adopt her......
I make it back in time to lock up my purse sign back in and have kids until 3:30. I have a boy SHOVE a girl into a wall on the way to lunch. I have my annual gyno visit, but he has moved to a new I scatter my bus students to 2 other teachers hop in the car to have it rain on me...but I found his office and have to set up some stuff over the next few weeks...because my mom was diagnosed with Breast Cancer within this last year. Hence, I am twice as likely.
When I do leave, I am in tears because of the stressful day I have had, the thought and Talk about all of the pain and suffering my mom has gone through in the last year......
