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?

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 = (

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??????

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.

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....
