Feeling really crappy today. My tummy has been in an uproar. I bet I lost a pound today. Pepto and crackers. Ughhhhh

Exactly how I feel.

Lots and LOTS on my mind...nothing good.

Sorry I haven't made it around to comment. I will catch up...asap.

Yep, it's me trying to get motivated to go back to school next week. Can you see the enthusiasm??? Don't I just shout out EXCITEMENT? I think so!
I went school shopping today, The Gov. of Ga as of last year, gives teachers a 100.00 prepaid visa to buy stuff for our classroom. I needed folders, staples, markers, pens, tape, post it notes, colored paper.....I went over the 100 and paid the difference.
If you ever feel the need to buy a teacher a gift..get her a gift card to walmart or an office supply place. These make great Christmas gifts---even if it is 10 or 15 bucks.
I also registered for one class this fall. $702 bucks for one graduate class. OUCH.
I need a sugar daddy with patience, romance and unlimited bank account---of course he has to LOVE cats!!!!

Have you ever cried so hard you don't think you'll ever be able to catch your breathe?

Today was one of the most important days of my life...18 years ago, the love of my life walked up to me at a Tesla/Great White concert at the University of New Orleans and kissed me. He didn't say hello just a kiss. Our love was magical. Some people saw they get butterflies...I had a damn circus in my stomach every time we were together. We finished each other sentences, and created a language of our own. We still share that today. He will always be the most important person to ever step into my life and make such a lasting imprint on my heart and in my soul.
We just spent the last 2 hours on the phone. I have been teary eyed all damn day. I think of the pain I feel not having him in my life. He says Rebecca we should be celebrating the love we had and the things we taught each other, the moments in the moonlight. He is such a deserving soul. I know that if I can't be with him, at least he is being cared for. She will always be second best. He and I made so many mistakes together. We grew like some rose bushes intwined yet seperate. Our love is stronger than anything I have ever felt in my life. I know no one can take that away from either of us, but I still feel such a sense of loss this evening. We have a bond, never to be broken.

Although, we both feel as if we have broken hearts. Love should encompass your mind, wrap around your heart until you simply burst with laughter, take your breathe away, and run circles around the universe while layering it with passion and friendship. We shared that. My heart danced and sang . No other person will ever be able to make me feel that way.

He's married now and I am in another state, but our hearts are still one.

Yep, this will be me and one of my kitties, very shortly.
I had a long day. Ran errands, and still fell as though nothing was accomplished. I have tons of housework to do...and damn...I don't wanna!
I went back to the beauty school and had what they call reflexology. They work on your hands and feet. You have pressure point and these massage techniques are supposed to make your "inner" body parts function more productively.
After that I went back to Rodney and had him shampoo and style my hair. I just felt like it! He only charged me 20 bucks. = )
Tomorrow, I will force myself to 3 loads of laundry, and dishes and changing linens.
No news on Romeo--ok well I got his last name. I have a couple of people working on it. But, I'm sure I am getting my hopes up and he'll be a total retard or an ass....
I'm going to bed so that I might be 40% productive tomorrow. I have lots on my mind tonight~ I may share tomorrow.

random obscure thoughts

This is to Grad school this summer, and apparently my whole summer. I can KISS them both good bye.


I haven't had any events as to take any pictures, so I got desperate at my house! SAD, I know!

Could I get any lamer????? --------------------------------->

Does anyone have a camera they just LOVE? If so what qualities does it offer that makes you so happy?????
Next, Romeo across the street has been coming home in the company van the last few days. I am wondering where his truck is~ Well, after reading the name on the van I called my buddy T. They do the same kind of work, but with different companies. He made a phone call and called me back. Greg one of his buddies he knows Romeo and said he had moved in with his family after a nasty divorce. Which the divorce part I knew about....nasty--I didn't. T is supposed to find out if he's got a girlfriend, if hes ready to date and if he has kids. So send him telepathic messages to get me the scoop...and not a year from now....
Second, the city is wanting to 4 lane a 2 lane road right outside of my subdivision. So the church in the neighborhood had a city meeting this evening to discuss their options. ALOT of people would lose their homes if they widen the road. I had class at the college so my aunt went to the meeting. I sent her across the street to Romeo's g'ma place. As she gets there Romeo pulls up. She had a minute to talk to him and went in...he left her alone with g'ma...She said "We haven't seen your neice much this summer" My aunt told them I was working on my Masters. (I wish he had said that).... She gets back to my place and says my he's handsome. Yes, i think he's cute! But damn our timing is OFF...way OFF!
I still have the cute smiley face card I wanna put on his windshield, just scared people will catch me or think I'm the CRAZY one in the neighborhood.

Let me introduce to you........
He is 20 years old in human years. I have had him since early high school. Bless his heart he has awful arthritis, but is the *COOLEST* kitty in the world. He's at my parents house in Louisiana.
I miss him.
I took this this month.
I spent all of Tuesday at work, moving from one room to another, as the custodial staff attempted to wax the hall way. I went to school Monday and stayed an hour, they asked me to come back the next day as they would be finished....they asked me to come back an hour after I got their Tuesday....I simply said no. Well after they ran me off Monday....I decided to treat myself to a $13.00 facial. I went to the local beauty school. A new girl did my facial...and I will hunt her down when she gets her own salon. She spent 2 hours on me. I went home when she was finished..and slept for 4 hours...this is at 5:00 oclock inthe afternoon--mind you. OMG was she good.
I will see her again next week maybe Friday if I go back to New Olreans early in the week..I am supposed to try reflexology tomorrow afternoon with her. I have never had it....but apparently it works on pressure points in your hands and feet to regulate or attend to any internal problems you may be having.
I look at it this way, the expensive salon wanted 90.00 for their European Facial. I paid 13.oo, certainly I can go for another and a massage and still have 40 bucks left over to fill my car with gas... I can be thrifty~ I'm not crazy about it...But yes, I'm not high maintenance ALL of the TIME.

You gotta love Robin Williams......Even if he's nuts!
Leave it to Robin Williams to come up with the perfect plan.

What we need now is for our UN Ambassador to stand up and repeat this message. Robin Williams' plan...(Hard to argue with this logic!) "I see a lot of people yelling for peace but I have not heard of a plan for peace. So, here's one plan."

1) "The US will apologize to the world for our "interference" in their affairs, past & present. You know, Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Tojo, Noriega, Milosevic, Hussein, and the rest of those "good ' ole' boys", we will never "interfere" again.

2) We will withdraw our troops from all over the world, starting with Germany, South Korea, the Middle East, and the Philippines . They don't want us there. We would station troops at our borders. No one allowed sneaking through holes in the fence.

3) All illegal aliens have 90 days to get their affairs together and leave . We'll give them a free trip home. After 90 days the remainder will be gathered up and deported immediately, regardless of whom or where they are. They're illegal!!! France will welcome them.

4) All future visitors will be thoroughly checked and limited to 90 days unless given a special permit!!!! No one from a terrorist nation will be allowed in If you don't like it there, change it yourself and don't hide here. Asylum would never be available to anyone. We don't need any more cab drivers or 7-11 cashiers.

5) No foreign "students" over age 21. The older ones are the bombers. If they don't attend classes, they get a "D" and it's back home baby.

6) The US will make a strong effort to become self-sufficient energy wise. This will include developing nonpolluting sources of energy but will require a temporary drilling of oil in the Alaskan wilderness. The caribou will have to cope for awhile .

7) Offer Saudi Arabia and other oil producing countries $10 a barrel for their oil. If they don't like it, we go someplace else. They can go somewhere else to sell their production. (About a week of the wells filling up the storage sites would be enough.)

8) If there is a famine or other natural catastrophe in the world, we will not "interfere." They can pray to Allah or whomever, for seeds, rain, cement or whatever they need. Besides most of what we give them is stolen or given to the army. The people who need it most get very little, if anything.

9) Ship the UN Headquarters to an isolated island someplace. We don't need the spies and fair weather friends here. Besides, the building would make a good homeless shelter or lockup for illegal aliens.

10) All Americans must go to charm and beauty school. That way, no one can call us "Ugly Americans" any longer. The Language we speak is ENGLISH..learn it...or LEAVE...

Now, isn't that a winner of a plan?

"The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses." She's got a baseball bat and she's yelling, 'you want a piece of me?' "

the gas chamber

My oldest kitty here in Ga. I swear he can read my mind sometimes....He snuggled up under my arm...put his head half way on my pillow and the other half he nudged up into the palm of my hand and slept for two hours. I am beginning to think he's just my angel on this earth!!!

I was up LATE last night watching a John Grisham book turned movie with Gene Hackman. After the guard asked him...now I am asking my blogger buddies.

If you were sentenced to death....what would you want/request for your last meal?

Friday, July 20, 2007


Well, I went and had my hair high lighted and low lighted (copper w/ a few blonde streaks) with Rodney...my guy here at Hotlocks. His daughter has a very mild case of down syndrome, but my god can she massage your scalp!!! He styled my hair a new way and used new products...and I like....I know I won't be able to reproduce it.....But I might just go back and get a style and a shampoo for my birthday next month. He did tell me about a goddess who gives facials...I am going to get one before school starts. Her name is LORDESS~ She's at one of the most expensive spa's here...but you only live once!
Yep, it's countdown time. I have 2 weeks until I'm back at work. *HISS*
I went to Yankee Candle today and bought a new scent Creme Brulee' Yummy to my tummy and my bedroom!
I also went to Dillards and bought my Lancome BiFacial..It is ABLSOLUTELY the best eye make up remover! It's refreshing and never irritates. I can't live without it! Oh and Lancome is in gift...so I got a bag and some goodies out of it.
Tomorrow, I get to meet T's new lady. He's ****giggle senseless**** since he met her over a month ago. His b'day is Monday so several friends are having lunch.
Then my friend A is having a choral concert at the local library ---she is singing and her students are performing.
This next week...I have to get to my classroom and move to another room and plie crap upon crap and attempt to get adjusted. SCREAM
I called one of my favorite girls from last year and her phone is disconnected...So I emailed my smartest guy and we'll hope he comes through with muscle power.....
Oh warm and relaxing shower here I come...

May he get bitten by a thousand dogs

This guys makes me sick, not only beacuse he plays or my SAINTS arch rival but beacause what he had done is simply INHUMANE. I hope he gets a maximum sentence and not a slap on the wrist with just a dollar amount to pay.

"Our confidential source said he's been involved in dogfighting for more than 30 years. He has trained and fought -- by his estimation -- about 2,000 pit bulls and was poised to tell "Outside the Lines" about the time in 2000 when his dog squared off against a dog owned by someone he referred to as one of the "heavyweights" of the dogfighting world: Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick.He's a pit bull fighter," the source said of Vick. "He's one of the ones that they call 'the big boys': that's who bets a large dollar. And they have the money to bet large money. As I'm talking about large money -- $30,000 to $40,000 -- even higher. He's one of the heavyweights."
On April 25, authorities raided a house in Surry County, Va., owned by Vick and reportedly found -- among other things -- 66 dogs (most of which were pit bulls), a dog-fighting pit, bloodstained carpets and equipment commonly associated with dogfighting. Vick was not at the scene and denied knowledge of dogfighting at the property. To this point, no charges have been filed against him. But questions about Vick and his possible connection to dogfighting linger.
This source -- who required anonymity as a condition of our interview -- has helped law enforcement by supplying information on dog fights that has led to dozens of felony arrests.
"I've fought dogs, I pitted them, I bred them and I've done everything with them," said the source of his three decades in dogfighting. He then went on to describe the scene from that night seven years ago, as he took his 42-pound dog into the pit (the area dogs fight in) to face off against Vick's dog. He says Vick did not get into the pit but had a member of his entourage handle his dog while Vick placed bets with the 20 or so people in attendance. The NFL released this statement: "Dogfighting is cruel, degrading, and illegal. We support a thorough investigation into any allegations of this type of activity. Any NFL employee proved to be involved in this type of activity will be subject to prompt and significant discipline under our personal conduct policy."

Well..today was busy for me. I had lunch with my old team--co-teachers. There are a couple I am really going to miss. I'll see them don't get me wrong but working on another team with other people just will not be the same. We all had lunch at Olive Garden. I had lasagna. It was Yummy. I spent the afternoon working on school stuff that is due tomorrow and Thursday evening. Then I decided to shop...no I didn't need a damn thing, but came home with a new pair of linen striped pants, a royal blue and back top and a sexy babydoll. I found one I liked in a rich purple and black....I just had too, ya know??? Of course while I was trying clothes on and (telling myself I had to get rid of at least 20 items in my closet) The shopping rule as to NOT clutter your closet is for every one thing you bring home, 2 must be let go of, otherwise you will be PLOWING thru an endless mess. Well...my to do list all summer was to clean out and re-arrange the closet. I must give away at least 2 bags of clothes. Why is it so easy for some to part and other become complete CLUTTER bugs??? By the way blogger is pissing me off tonight, it won't let me start new paragraphs, or move pictures, it's like it is stuck in a stupid mode!!! The next money I decided to spend was when I was trying on all of these clothes....I realized my hair needed some love, some TLC and a trim...So I called at the mall and scheduled my guy for Friday afternoon. So I have an end of the week to look forward too.

Busy Busy day for me and well, I slept about 3 hours. I am dragging and moaning as I go.

My air is on and I am fresh out of the shower! I did just change linens on my bed, have a Yankee Buttercream candle going and my new bedding on...I bought on sale at Dillards a month or so ago. I dig it. I have expensive taste and a dime in my wallet. Aren't I brilliant??

Ok Romeo across the street hasn't been there in 4 days now. Hmmmmm. If it were during the week- I could think work trip (although- I have no idea what he does) . But now maybe I am thinking his vacation? I do not know G'ma well enough to ask her stuff, and frankly feel kinds weird about asking her stuff about Grandson...neighborhood stuff ok,

There are FRIENDS and There are SOUTHERN FRIENDS

FRIENDS: Never ask for food.
SOUTHERN FRIENDS: Always bring the food.

It has been a kinda busy weekend for me. I have accomplished a BUNCH of homework for the class I am taking this summer. Alleluhia!

Last night, Angel and I went to dinner at Red Lobster (anytime cheese and shrimp) are on the menu, I am game. Then we went to see the new Robin Williams movie (love him), " License to Wed" . It was cute. It wasn't as funny as I had hoped..however, it had one the the sweetest most romantic sentiments in it...The couple "failed" his couse if you will, and broke up on the nigt before they were to be married...well she took the tickets for the honeymoon and went way to clear her head. He followed her later...and wrote his wedding vows in the sand outside of her bedroom hotel window. He called her and she found them and him outside her window. It was a "bring you to tears" moment in the movie. After all, I am a hopeless romantic~ (even though, I am so damn cynical on here most of the time.

I haven't seen my boy across the street...he didn't come home last night---for me to be able to put the card on the truck....So that is a uh-oh and question I must ask...With friends? fishing? or with a g-friend????? Hmmmmm. Thoughts?

After the movie, we were going to go to a club, drove downtown..but I just wasn't feeling it. You must understand how difficult it is to have a single friend here and available to go out---god forbid she is female. So, pparently, I was feeling funky. We picked up her convertible and just took the top down and drove for a couple of hours with the wind in our hair and music to our ears.

Thursday, July 12, 2007

OK, it's midnight and I am just getting home. I have been at Cathy's house for 4 hours! We are taking a class together at CSU this summer and we are partners for a presentation due next week. So after class we went to dinner and then to her place and been staring at Power Point for 4 hours now. MEOW! However, I feel lucky because I got the BEST partner in the class. She's so funny! I told her she should have minored in comedy in under grad work. We are debating taking some more classes together in the Fall and Spring. Yes, for spring we are just feeling overwhelmed for FALL and back to school, plus she has 2 kids--

11 and 7. So we'll see~

No, other news here, I stayed in bed til noon. That was nice! I am going to do something festive with a friend Sat night. I hope it's a happy occassion.
I am a bit tempted by the fella across the street. So I need feedback~ *HINT *HINT *HINT*---especially my regulars BG, Mick and Rach....

He's moved in with his grandmother after a divorce--he's been there about 8 or 9 months now. He always waves when I see him. (I haven't seen him in a month now *sigh*) but my house alarm went off while I was in New Orleans at the beginning of the summer. The cops were called by ADT, my buddy Tommy was called and so was my aunt, but she was already here working her green thumb and didn't hear the alarm.

1.)He came over and checked on things with my aunt.

2.)I saw him when I got home and I accidentally left my garage door open over night--A week later he met me in the street and said is your garage door broken? (I think its cool he noticed and asked. )

3.) We had a long convo one afternoon when i was getting my mail. He knew from G'ma that I was a teacher and aked where--he asked me about one of my FAVorite kids from 2 ys ago. It ends up he is best friends with his dad. (Pretty cool--I had a GREAT relationship with this kid--he'd tell me anything I wanted to know come school time)

4.) During this convo he tells me he's divorced and staying with g'ma while he gets back on his feet. He just bought a new truck-I like it! He asked who I lived with--I said just the cats. Then he goes on to talk about how much he likes cats and his ideas on some of their habits that make them loveable.

Ok--well if we could ever catch each other outside at the same time...I would talk to him. I do not however feel like going to ask G'ma. I considered putting a note on his truck one evening and ask hime if he had talked to Logan and told him he was living across the street from me..He's the student that would give me rave reviews...I considered leaving my number. With my luck- I would attempt to put a note on his truck and his ALARM would go off, wake him, his G'ma and ALL of our neightbors and I would like like a damn fool!


I don't know if he's seeing anyone...I don't know about kids? I don't know ANYTHING. I just think he's kinda cute and seems very sweet....

not much on my mind today

A blonde, wanting to earn some extra money, decided to hire herself outas a "handy-woman" and started canvassing a nearby well-to-doneighborhood. She went to the front door of the first house, and askedthe owner if he Had any odd jobs for her to do.

"Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint my porch," he said, How much Will you charge me?" The blonde quickly responded, "How about$50?" The man agreed and told her that the paint and everything she would need Was in the garage.

The man's wife, hearing the conversation, said to her husband, "Does she realize that our porch goes all the way around the house?"He responded, "That's a bit cynical, isn't it?The wife replied, "You're right. I guess I'm starting to believe all those dumb blonde jokes we've been getting by e-mail lately."

A short time later, the blonde came to the door to collect her money."You're finished already?" the husband asked. "Yes," the blondereplied, "and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats."Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $50.00 and handed it to her."

And by the way," the blonde added, "it's not a Porch, it's a Lexus."

Howdy for a Tuesday morning. It's noon and I am just getting up. I have to LOVE the summer for my time off. Although I only have 3 weeks left until I go back to work. MEOW

Yesterday, I spent some time working on grad school stuff. I also managed to talk me aunt into going to the Military base. I needed some Lancome powder, and I wanted a new Yankee Candle. Buttercream~~~ Oh ya'll it truly smells like a lil bit of heaven.

I like sweet candles and I must admit that I am addicted. I also use wallflower plug ins that Bath and Body works sells. I must have 8 plugged in all over my house. They have a few scents that are sweet too! I like their creamy caramel, brown sugar & fig, french vanilla, and Mandarin mango. They last about 6-8 weeks and are great for smaller areas--kitchen, bathroom (above my 2 litter boxes! ) A friend gave me one as a Christmas gift several years ago and I have been a fan since ---thank you Hannah! http://www.teatopia.net/

You need to try one! Wait and catch a sale and you can get them at 5 dollars a piece.

For all of my weight loss bloggers...what motivates you on a daily basis?

Sunday, July 08, 2007

OK..Had a busy weekend. I need to keep busy with all of the stuff I have going on in my brain these days...

Sat I got up before 10:00a.m. (this is rare on a Sat much less during my summer break), drove over to my aunts house picked her up and we drove to Newnan to visit one of my uncles who is now in an assisted living situation. We spent 4 hours with him. (took him out for ice cream--he loves the stuff) and then we drove back here. I asked to her to look at a couple of pieces of land I read about in the paper. One of the seller met us there. He's asking 285,000 for 80 acres and no it's not frontage property. There is however a creek running through several acres and its loaded with young pine trees. I don't have 280---so the point was mute. I asked if he would split it in half...he'd rather not, but took my number just in case. Then I found one 10 acre lot--mostly cleared of trees and debree--he wants 61,500 for it. I'll keep looking.

We went out to dinner together (we don't do that enough) and I brought her home. Ya'll she is 80 yrs old and this has been a LONG day for her.

Today, I slept til 1:30. Yep, I felt like I was just in a coma. I fussed at myself as I looked at the clock---jumped up and ran out of the house knowing if I didn't I would have just been lazy and read some Reader's Digests and Progressive Farmers I have piled up. SO instead I treated my self to a pedicure and manicure (wahoo way to go Rebecca you slept almost ALL DAY) . I reward myself by getting pampered. Well, it rained here all day- no complaints cause we DESPERATELY need the rain) but it made for a dreary day.

I came home apparently feeling guilty and got busy! I cooked a skillet of Jambalaya. YUM.

I vacuumed the house. I took out garbage-- threw out clutter (2 bags of it)!!!! I did dishes ran the dishwasher and then unloaded it once they were dry. I did a load of laundry! I cleaned my kitty room...paid bills...and I dusted. OK I CAN HEAR THE APPLAUSE!

I am feeling a bit better--hell if I knew I could be that productive after a mani and pedi I get one once a week!

Thursday, July 05, 2007

As I was a traveler last weekend. The prices do hurt.
I found some ants in my car today...I cleaned out my car, water bottles and any napkins and ketchup packets around...Any suggestions??? I don't do bugs of any type.
Just getting home from Grad school. I have LOTS to do over the next 3 weeks. MEOW

Wednesday, July 04, 2007


Well, it's the evening of the 4th and I am stuck behind a computer typing Grad school stuff.

How sad is this?

I relaxed most of the day. I went through my mail and paid some bills.

I went to my aunts house and sent brought her some stuff my mom sent back by me.

My mom is having a tough time with this chemo round. Her eyes water like she is crying all the time, her face is broken out in a red type rash as a reaction to one of the meds they are pumping into her. She grew back about an inch of hair after surgery and had in after the following 2 rounds of chemo---but its all gone now. Ya'll she has been such a trooper through all of this. God, is helping and your prayers have meant alot.

We got together with Linda and her mom (the only people besides mom and dad_that I saw while I was home--) Sorry GEE. Linda's mom had both breasts removed and has been through all the chemo and radiation and al the other shit that goes with it. Karen is divorced and only has her daughter Linda to help her with things. HEr mom has to have blood transfusions every few weeks. She told us they are looking at having to replace a heart valve because her red blood cells won't seem to mature. She has really been through the ringer (So keep her in your prayers too). The four of us had a meal while I was home. My mom and Karen didn't eat much, but we got them out and able to visit--neither one would drive to see the other alone at this stage in their lives. They have been friends for 30 years now.

I cleaned and cooked soem so dad would have food and mom didn't have to worry about it.

I did manage to buy some tickets off of Ebay--any one had a bad experience with anything they bought off of there??? I BETTER NOT!
