Hi All,
I will be posting sporatically! Bear with me....I have had a LONG gruesome week. I have one hell of a sinus infection to which my doc gave me a antibiotic prescription. I took it Wed night and spent all evening in the bathroom. MEOW
I went to my dermatologist yesterday and he tells me apparently I was allergic to the antibiotic....and then proceeds to give me several shots in my shoulder to numb me up as he takes a slice off of my skin in search of skin cancer. My arm was numb all evening and sore as hell today.
Hubby left this morning for a conference in Kentucky for the weekend. I am sooooo sleepy. I think I could sleep all weekend if i tried.
How is your world?
I have a MidTerm to study for all weekend. UGHHHH-- Its an Educational Psychology course. Wish me luck and cooler weather.

Hello All

It has been quite busy in my world. Today I stayed home sick. My tummy gave me fits afte dinner yesterday. So I saw it best to stay home. I also skipped my night class Thursday. Hubby had a conference to speak at today in North Alabama. So I have had he house to myself...which has been kinda soothing. OMG is it an adjustment from not having a roommate for ten years and then one you are supposed to share everything with~ it seems much easier for him.

I went and bought the Sex and the City movie when it was put on shelves Tuesday. I really loved those girls. Their "issues" were real life and easy to relate too.

I am watching Amy Wives now...but it's just a runner up. The characters are real but not as loveable.

Has anyone seen any great movies lately? I wanna curl up with a few this weekend, Hubby and I wee going to see the new Nicholas Sparks book to movie with Richard Gere this weekend...

Friday, August 29, 2008

I'm off on MONDAY--wahoooo


Happy 3 day weekend! I am damn sure happy to be able to sleep!!!!!!!!!

Hope your Labor day is fun, relaxing and full of love!

Monday, August 25, 2008


Happy Birthday to me.
I want to live in a tree
That way housing would be free
No one could see
How crazy these kids make me

Monday, August 18, 2008

Sorry that I have been away for SOOO long...I am back to work now...and should have a few more posts these days.

My kids this year are really LOW academically, which concerns me...Last year my kids were the highest in the sixth grade! Wahoooo we beat out 2 other teams.

Married life has its challenges....mostly because I haven't had a live in in ten years....huge difference for me.

Nothing happening exciting with me....I have another college course that starts this Thursday night for me. Ughhhh. It's a Psychology course, which I think I will like. I know the teacher. I am wanting it to be on another night...I am so damn tired by Thurdsday, I wanna go home and fall into bed.

OK..I will try to make it around to a few blog friends in the next couple of days.

Hope all is well in your world.

Busy Busy Busy Yes, I am.

College --a Educational Research class is killing me. Although the Professor is quite the cutie! That helps when you are stuck in a 6 hour course.....and he knows the hubby...and he may be someone I want to work for in the next year...

Less than a month and I am back at work. YIKES

I have an obsession with several of the purses in the Sex & the City movie. I want one--a real CHANEL. I've been shopping on line. I joined Bag Borrow...the site mentioned in the movie...Can I say I am in love with the idea but not with their prices. I'd rather buy a new one...yes, I am talking several thousand...but it would be mine *all mine**

Good news for now for my mom. Her doc did a CT scan and found a suspicious spot on her right lung. We have been praying feverishly and he told her today...there is nothing to worry about right now, go back and see him in 3 months. They had given her basically 2 ideas:
1. It is lung cancer
2. it is scar tissue starting to form after her breast cancer surgery
Thank you Jesus.. I am on my hands and knees right now thanking him we did not here the word cancer again...keep her in your prayers.

Sorry to my regular blog buddies, I have been busy and neglecting all of you. I just need some sporadic time to sleep, shop, pray and work on college course work. Besides, I am still adjusting to having another person in the house 24/7. It's been a learning experience..and a patience pusher. I love him though! We are coming up on 3 months July 12....

Peace to you and yours!

Monday, June 23, 2008


I feel obligated to blog...however the last few weeks have not been full of free time. Today was really busy for me. My new step daughters are here with us. We spent the day together...We had pizza for lunch, went to the mall, drove over to my aunt's house to say hellO. We went to see daddy at work....they are at the neighborhood swimming pool right now with daddy. I'm taking a quiet break and need to get to work on college classwork. As I have classes Wed and Thursday....this summer course work is killing me. I want quiet time, sleeping in late and lots and LOTS of money.

We did get a new flat screen tv for the bedroom. We have a 46inch in the living room. So we boight a 40 inch for the master bedroom. We have it hooked up but we need a new HD reciever for the bedrom from Direct TV.

How in the hell is my summer 1/2 OVER ????????

Wish me calm tranquility~ and the ability NOT to shop. I have soooo much to pay for still. I have run wild for the last few months and my credit cards are paying for it and my interest rates are sharing a rapid heart beat as they accrue interest.

Much love

what are your thoughts on oral sex?

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

Sorry ya'll. I have had the last 2 days off no work or college classes...I have been a homebody and lazy as hell. I need downtime and lots of love from kitty cats~

Work was the worst two months I have had. I have to change schools this next school year. I put in for a transfer 2 days late and my principal refused to sign it. I'll have to train a new teacher in the fall and pray that *H* actually comes back.....I just don't even want to think about it.

Married life has it's ups and downs. I am having the hardest time simply because I am not accustomed to having a roommate. It's the little things that I have a rough time finding a sticky remote control, extra dishes, the inability to clean a stove after he cooked.

On the other hand, the ability to wake up next to the man I LOVE, the sweet notes he leaves around the house just because and eventually the few hundred dolars of savings I'll get each month. I am still paying wedding bills, his ring and we're splitting our new bedroom set..but still owe 3000 grand on it. I deserve a pay raise damn it. Teachers are not paid enough to deal with what we do...............

I am addicted to the tanning bed....Its the first year in my life I have ever been in one. I like looking tan!!!!!!! I am geting lots of compliments which is very cool.

Wednesday, May 28, 2008

I made it.
My boss has really pissed me off.
I am so in need of down time.

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

This is a story about a couple who had been happily married for years. The only friction in their marriage was the husband's habit of farting loudly every morning when he awoke.

The noise would wake his wife and the smell would make her eyes water and make her gasp for air. Every morning she would plead with him to stop ripping them off because it was making her sick. He told her he couldn't stop and that it was perfectly natural.

She told him to see a doctor. She was concerned that one day he would blow his guts out. The years went by and he continued to rip them out!

Then one Thanksgiving morning as she was preparing the turkey for dinner and he was upstairs sound asleep, she looked at the bowl where she had put the turkey innards and neck, gizzard, liver and all the spare parts and a malicious thought came to her. She took the bowl and went upstairs where her husband was sound asleep and, gently pulling back the bed covers, she pulled back the elastic waistband of his underpants and emptied the bowl of turkey guts into his shorts.

Some time later she heard her husband waken with his usual trumpeting which was followed by a blood curdling scream and the sound of frantic footsteps as he ran into the bathroom. The wife could hardly control herself as she rolled on the floor laughing, tears in her eyes! After years of torture she reckoned she had got him back pretty good.

About twenty minutes later, her husband came downstairs in his bloodstained underpants with a look of horror on his face.

She bit her lip as she asked him what was the matter. He said, "Honey, you were right. All these years you have warned me and I didn't listen to you. "What do you mean?" asked his wife.

"Well, you always told me that one day I would end up farting my guts out, and today it finally happened. But by the grace of God, some Vaseline, and these two fingers, I think I got most of them back in.

Yep this is how ll teachers are feeling at this point in the school year. CRAZY
11 more days of students and 14 for teachers.
TGIF tomorrow. I need a weekend to chill, clean house, and do laundry.....

Tuesday, May 06, 2008

This is me today. I have a headache...I am sleep deprived and my students are crazy as hell today. We have 15 more days together. I am ready and they are even more ready.
I need some down time. I need some quiet time. I need 8 solid hours of sleep. We got our bedroom set which we are both pleased with...but the 1800 mattress is too soft for both of us. We went to the furniture store yesterday and he said he'd swap it. It's got a latex memory foam that fits to your body....but it's just too soft for long term sleep.
I have lost a co worker due to violence in her home. She will not be back this year. I am sorry to say and I doubt she'll be back next year.
Send me calm soothing vibes with another paycheck.
Many Thanks.
Oh..and hell NO I would not vote for ..."HALF HONKEY---ALL DONKEY" O'bama.

A car gets a flat on the interstate one day. The BLONDE driver eases it over onto the shoulder of the road, carefully steps out of the car and opens the trunk. She takes out two cardboard men, unfolds them, and stands them at the rear of the vehicle, facing oncoming traffic.

The lifelike cardboard men are in trench coats, exposing their nude bodies and private parts to approaching drivers. Not surprisingly, the traffic becomes snarled and backed up.

It isn't very long before a police car arrives. The officer, clearly
enraged, approaches the BLONDE of the disabled vehicle, yelling, "What's going on here?"

"My car broke down officer" says the woman calmly. "Well, what the hell are these obscene cardboard pictures doing here by the road?" he asks.

"Helloooooooo!!!" says the BLONDE "Those are my emergency

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

THANK GOD it is payday!
I spent lots of money in the last few months and I will be paying on it for the next few months! SCREAM

I'm sleepy this morning. I was up late last night on-line doing stuff. I had a school meeting for parents that I had to attend. My house in in TOTAL disarray and I am beginning to suffer.

Although our new bedroom set and mattress set was delivered on Monday. It sleeps well and the furniture is HUGE. I feel like I need a step ladder to get out of the bed.

I was sick last week with sinus stuff. I should have stock with Kleenex now. I can't seem to clear my head.

Any thoughts on O'Bamas minister????? Hubby and I got into a debate last night. We will NEVER agree on politics.

Happy day to you all.

Tuesday, April 22, 2008

My kids were great! They were so sweet to do this for me. They sang "Oh Happy Day" and Hallelujah.
My will see him on American Idol as soon as he is old enough. The girls swoon over him and his stage presence, he's just a natural! His smile just lights up a room.

The Church on April 12, 2008.

These are two of the bright spots of our wedding party. Makenzie is on the left and Baylee on the right. They were precious flower girls!!! All of my girls puckering up for my hubby. He was BRIGHT red when they shot the photo.

My daddy loves me! He is not an affectionate fella, so this is a rare moment!

From left to right: Stephy my college roommate, Tara one of my high school buds, Gee my sister and Amy who was my Maid of Honor.
My new family......

My entrance. I was so nervous! I think I even scared my dad. I told him he better be ready to catch me if I fall.

First Presbyterian really is a beautiful church....I like all aspects but one. The carpet is hideous!

These are a few of my students who sang two songs at the wedding. They are student in 6, 7 & 8th grade. I taught them over the years. They sounded so sweet!

The whole wedding party. Gee, Dalton, Angel, Tara
Ben, Stephy, Amy, Me, Reagan, Mike, Makenzie and Baylee.

One pic ~

We are home.

I am exhausted. The next 3 weeks will be crazy as in he is moving in with me.
I have 2 weeks left to do do projects for Grad school.

I have thank you notes to write.

I need sleep.

The wedding went off with out a hitch...I think.
My kids were great at the ceremony.

The florist was wonderful. I would use her and promote her to anyone!

I was disappointed in the food at the Marriott.

Pictures maybe this week. Let me see how I get the house in some type of order and some notes mailed and a project completed.

Much love.

Thursday, April 10, 2008

It's 3:14 a.m.
I just hung up with my first true love. He and I have been in each others lives for 20 years this summer. We had an electric connection. He walked up to me at a concert at University of New Orleans and just kissed me. He didn't say hello, he just kissed me. We fell head over heels in love and will take that love with us to our graves.
He married about 9 years ago. He's content and has a beautiful daughter now.
Well, with my big day approaching we spent a few hours on the phone tonight. He is genuinely happy for me. Of course several of our friends are standing in the wedding. I sensed he felt a bit left out. He could be the life of the party. He has a great personality and blends well with all kinds of people.
I feel a bit of relief after talking to him. I have such fond memories of our years, our friends and the lust for life we shared. I am entering a new chapter in my life and have a real issue with change. It is typically something that I dread, I fight it and can be afraid of it.
Instead, he offers me new hope, a new segment of my life that should be embraced and cherished. He gives me his love, approval and best wishes.
I just needed to send God a thank you for the love he has sent me. I feel blessed.

Tuesday, April 08, 2008

Yes, I am nervous. I am nervous about the actually ceremony not the marriage...OK well, I haven't had a roommate in over a decade. I am a bit reluctant to give up all of my space. I'm a brat.

I am thrilled to be seeing all of my bridesmaids. You must realize I haven't seen 2 of them in 8-10 years. We talk of course, but one is in Texas and the other Florida. I wish we were able to spend more time together than we are actually going to. *frown*

I am running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I have so MUCH going on EXCEPT for sleep. I'm a cranky lady without sleep. MEOW MEOW

Much Love.....

Wednesday, April 02, 2008

10 days and I will be married! of my best friends here she is singing a solo at the wed...We went to the church last night after work and met with the organist. We met him in the choir loft and he played me several songs for the prelude and or actual ceremony. The Church is large and the organ is renowned for it's ability and intensity. He played me the traditional wedding march and I thought my heart would JUMP out of my chest. Ya"ll hear me arranging things and stressing out...but not until yesterday did I feel like it was really happening. Geezeeeeee.

On a *happy* note~

R gave me red and white flowers last night when I got home(these are the colors of the wedding flowers). They are lovely. He was sweet.

This morning about an hour after I got to department head had flowers delivered to work. They are a lovely mix of bright cheerful colors.

I go to my hairdresser this afternoon right after work...we have a brief faculty meeting to have our next year contracts passed out...

12 Days

Hello all~
I am feeling a bit more relaxed today. I know ODD for a Monday morning. I don't have any after school meeting today. AMEN.
I have a couple of places to go after work. But I don't feel a tremendous amount of pressure. THANK GOD!!!!!!

I need to run to my pastry shop. I bought some cookie cutters and she said she would make some cookies for my favor table. = ) I have tin box mints with our names and dates on them. I am thinking of ordering some pralines from N'Awlins too. I am also thinking of flower seeds in packages they can plant and watch grow and I bought baggies guests can use to pick up what they like.... The bags have a Fleur De Lis and our names and date. Other small quaint ideas??? or feedback on these?

We ordered the bedroom set like 3-4 weeks ago and I am so hoping it would come in this week. Send the shipping people positive energy.

"Legend The English translation of "fleur-de-lis" (sometimes spelled "fleur-de-lys") is "flower of the lily." This symbol, depicting a stylized lily or lotus flower, has many meanings. Traditionally, it has been used to represent French royalty, and in that sense it is said to signify perfection, light, and life."

17 days til the wedding

Howdy. Sorry it has been a week since a post. I really am busy. Monday after work I spent 3 hours with my florist. I REALLY like her. I think I will be pleased with her work.
Today Angel comes to rehearse with my kids after school. Then we go to the church to met with the organist.
I had a hair appointment tomorrow but called and changed it to next week so my hair would LOOK fresh.....
I ran by Dillards after work yesterday and talked to Laurel my friend at M.A.C. she is doing my make up and my bridesmaids make up for the wedding. Yeah!!!! I told her I would buy her a gift certificate for her work....Any ideas?
I use Lancome and Lauder most of the time...although I like MAC's demi lashes and their blush. I am a makeup queen. I love the stuff and should probably do something with the passion I have about it. favors...I am working on some mints and cookies with a bag I had a Fleur De Lis and our names with wedding date on them. Any other cute ideas? What do you think about flower seeds a few packets if people wanted to take them and plant them??? Cute inexpensive???

Sunday, March 16, 2008

My day went alright actually until I got home.

I managed to pick up my dress today. I spent the whole day in Atlanta at the bridal store and visiting my uncle who is in assisted living on the way there.

I spoke to my aunt and my cousins wife while I was there. My aunt and uncle's grand daughter is the cutest thing! She is talented too. Well, I asked if she would sing "Cross my Heart" by George Strait at the reception. One of my students ok I think my favorite student of all time....really wanted to play something either at the church or the reception. He's a good player for a 7th grader. His dad owns the local guitar shop and is INCREDIBLE as a player. Anyway he's playing the song and she is going to sing it. She could be on a kid star search...

Well, I call my fiance to tell him how my day was and such and mentioned this he goes NUTTY on me. Why didn't I ask him about it? Ok ladies...(and MICK)...he said he doesn't care much for cake...and when I brought him samples he didn't even wanna eat them. When I asked him about colors...he says it doesn't matter. The same with the why the hell shouldn't I take this into my own hands and make some decisions. We have a jazz guitarist a professional playing alone at the what if she sings a couple of songs????


Friday, March 14, 2008

Please check this site out and tell me what you think of the work being displayed.

Sunday, March 09, 2008

Well, I took the weekend to myself. I unplugged the phone Friday night and retreated. I feel like I have been sucked up into a whirlwind in the form of a tornado. I mean, how do people with families work, shop, clean, and find time for themselves? I am accustomed to living by myself and getting married is going to be a big deal for me. I am used to my own territory. HELP!!!

I finally ordered a cake this last week. I have to bring some picture in but I chose a strawberry light and fluffy with a butter cream frosting. Never in my life would I think it would be strawberry, but this pastry shop had 6 or 7 caked for me to try and I loved it! For me to choose strawberry over HAD to be YUMMY.

I managed to throw out 3 bags of clothing this weekend. I did some laundry and a little shopping this morning, I just finished a paper due for my college class. I just typed and submitted it. I did dishes and unloaded the dishwasher...and I also took a nap yesterday and again today which tells you I really am exhausted.


Thursday, March 06, 2008

Well, I think I got food poisoning of some type. Ya'll I have really picked up the crud over the last month! I feel a bit better today, I ate chicken noodle soup for lunch along with a handful of peanuts.

I had chills, stomach cramping and lots of time in the restroom. UGHHHHHHHHH
Two days of nastyness.... the smell of food was nauseating.

I am going to blogs as soon as I type this~

Wanted your thoughts on the pics ...

Tuesday, March 04, 2008

Well, all of my married bloggers ---can life actually look like this???
It is really nasty weather here today. Can I say YUCK? I drove in a down pour to work and left my umbrella at the house...double yuk.
We have registered at Dillards. We desperately need bed linens. We are getting a king size mattress as a wedding gift and neither of us have any king size sheets. I am rather picky and like high thread count 400-1000. The higher the netter in quality and softness. So I mentioned I know the ones we have picked are a bit expensive...but people could get gift cards and we could put a few together and buy 2 or 3 really good sets. Do I sound impractical?
I am tempted to mention that we could use gift certificates to dining establishments. It would allow us to eat out and not spend money we simply DO NOT have right now. We are both in our 30's and have many of the necessary things.....we do need a really good set of cookware.
Anybody out there have suggestions on adding to a registry things they wish they had asked for and didn't???
Thank you for being faithful readers and commentors!!!

Thursday, February 28, 2008

Ok. Here's how I feel. Yet again I have had a very busy week...and I haven;t made it to blogs...Barngoddess, Mick, Diet Coke, Diane, Angelfish, Cactus...I am missing you too. I am just not home to get online and feel like I am able to surf.
My mom goes home Sat. I have tomorrow to see her. When I left school today, I went and grabbed her. We went to the first pastry shop I found a month or so again. We called and set up a taste test.
I found that I loved her strawberry cake. Her vanilla not so much, but her red velvet was good and her double chocolate was tasty. I LOVED her chocolate whipped frosting. CAN I SAY OMG? She should produce her own "Betty Crocker" shelving of this!
However, as I am aware most wedding cakes are white/yellow....with a few smatterings thrown in for splashes of color. My mom was She will call me next week and let me try a caramel cake and her almond cake....(it's kind of a pound cake). I can get 3 square tiers for 250 + delivery. I'll admit she had more flavors than I anticipated. The local bakery by me only had white cake...and I had to pay extra for filling between layers....
I need money.

Monday, February 25, 2008

Sorry yet again that I have been away so long in the last month or so...
I ended up missing 6 days of work. I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotic gel my primary care physician gave me for the pink eye. I ended up going to an opthomologist and getting baush and laumb drops that cleared me up.

I am back at work today... my desk and the amount of paper work is WHEWWWWWW !

My mom came here Saturday. It is the first time she has been here since she was diagnosed with cancer a year and 4 months ago. She is very fragile. Her strength is not up to par neither is her blood cell count. So again, I ask for prayers.

I went for a fitting on my dress yesterday. The corset fits....the boobies have to be altered.

R moved a few things into the garage yesterday. We will have a close call with him parking his mustang in and my honda and his motorcycle.

I will make it around to all my buddies sometime soon...hopefully tomorrow.

Tuesday, February 19, 2008

I am still at home feeling FUNKY!! I went to an eye doctor today. He confirmed it was conjuntivitis. ICK. The gel my primary care guy gave me is apparently irritating my eyes, hence the pain and discomfort. MY EYES HURT DAMNIT.

It ruins everything. It hurts to read for more than a few minutes, my eyes itch. They get blurry and I woke up this morning and laid in bed with a cold compress on both of them.

I have taken 4 days off of work. I feel really behind not to mention using up my sick leave they little that I had~~~ Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I saw my man for a few hrs yesterday but I have asked him to stay away cause I am contagious. I am feeling totally buitchy and whiney!

Sunday, February 17, 2008

I'm home with Pink Eye. I have never had but two of my kids at school had it 2 weeks ago...and now here I am. I took Thursday and Friday off of work. I just feel yukky. I have a antibiotic gel that I put in my eye 3 times a day. I'm just a lovely lady.

No news here, just hanging at home feeling a bit glum. We have Monday off for Presidents day.
Hope you are well and happy!

Wednesday, February 13, 2008

Hi Ya'll.
I have been so busy that I haven't taken the time to blog or stop by anyone's blog. I feel totally swamped. At least after the last 2 weeks, I feel as though a few things are accomplished. The church is book and the reception area is too. We have the caterer, my hairdresser has that morning blocked off for my wedding party. I bought a dress, picked out bridesmaid dresses and 3 of the 4 girls have ordered them. My florist has been booked.
On the other hand, no cake yet, no invitations yet (i'm working on them), we need a wedding coordinator and our music is still a bit up in the air. I am waiting on approval from the head minister at the church who has been out of town for a week.
My ring is beautiful. He did really well. It needs a new more flattering mount. But he is definately a keeper!

I have class tonight at the college. Ugh. It doesn't start until just puts me home so late! I have tons of stuff for my class and I need to get with it...just kinda not my priority right now.

I wanna thank you all for your support and well wishes they mean ALOT to me!!!

Friday, February 08, 2008

The happy couple!!!
April 12th, 2008

Tuesday, February 05, 2008

It's official!
We are getting married April 12th.
I have been nuts a few weeks now, trying to get myself together. I bought a dress in Atlanta last weekend. I picked out colors and bridesmaid dresses too. I am so blessed to have Tara from Florida, Stephanie from Texas, My sister from Louisiana and Amy from New Orleans standing in my wedding.
Today I have an appointment with a florist.
I met with a pastry chef here. We booked the church and are trying to decide on where to have the reception. We have a few options. There are pluses and minues at each.

Monday, February 04, 2008

Questions I need answered:

What is your favorite church hymn?
Either to hear someone/choir sing that is special and or uplifting.

Thursday, January 31, 2008

Great News!!! The Professor as you know him on my blog was hired by AUBURN UNIVERSITY today.......He is so happy and DESERVING! It means a 9 rather than a 12 month job a year and the option to pick up classes in the summer if he wants too. He's working out the salary but it will be at least a 10,000 pay increase with summer's off. We could travel and see the world! We are going out to celebrate tonight. Wahoooooo

Wednesday, January 30, 2008

I am in a WHIRLWIND!
I have tons to do and not enough time to do it in!!!! I have class tonight at the college. I have a couple of chapters to read before then. We have progress reports going out in a coupld of days.
I think I have managed a total of 10 hours of sleep in 3 days. I need some definate DOWN time. I know that will not happen for quite awhile.

Wish me luck, love and good taste! ( not to mention the winning lotto numbers)

Tuesday, January 29, 2008

It is a GREAT day today!!!!

Monday, January 28, 2008

Stressed out is not a STRONG or ADEQUATE enough of a term to use on how my day and current life situation is feeling.

What do you do with meddlesome family members? Besides hire Tony Soprano? (It is getting close and he's as busy as he used to be)

Another strange note have any of my blog readers needed to skip your period for a week? Meaning have you even had a special occassion in which you would want "FLo" not to show up? Did your gyno do/say or offer any advice? Did you start a new pack of pills and skip your sugar pills? I put a call into mine talked to a nurse and she is checking with my doc.
I am wondering if I would have reactions....mood swings....emotional stuff and or added nervousness? Ideas????

Friday, January 25, 2008

What are your thoughts on a pre nuptial?

Thursday, January 24, 2008

Signs of EMOTIONAL EATING---( God I do it ALL the time!!!)

You strongly crave a certain comfort food, and a healthier choice won't do.
The urge to eat passes if you delay a few minutes.
The urge to eat is accompanied by a trigger, such as an emotion (stress, boredom or even happiness), particular place, person or situation.
You are eating to fill a void (loneliness, emptiness, lack of fulfillment).
You eat quickly, gobbling the food down without tasting or enjoying it.
You want a snack to relax, unwind or reward yourself.
You've eaten within the last two or three hours.

I have a busy day at work. Hope yours is short and sweet.

I have a killer headache. I took 3 tylenol in the last 2 relief yet. I know it's sinus stuff. All the people I work with have it. UGHHH

Ok, I need help for a friend we will call L. L has a lot of bad feelings towards her parents. She has always been the one to excel, but never gets the recognition she deserves. I mean NEVER. I think it causes problems for her in relationships. She sees herself as a failure with boyfriends, marriage and only holds on to her career. Is there anything I can do to build up her self esteem?

She seeks approval from family and will never get it. How can she cope?

I had yesterday off. I needed the rest. I did ALOT of school/ work.. I cleaned up some. Flo finally left me. Thank GOD!!!!

My husband, being unhappy with my mood swings, bought me a mood ring the other day so he would be able to monitor my moods.

We've discovered that when I'm in a good mood, it turns green and when I'm in a bad mood, it leaves a big friggin red mark on his forehead.

Maybe next time he'll buy me a diamond.


Who's the Boss?
A young couple on their wedding night were in their honeymoon suite.

As they were undressing for bed, the husband, a big burly man, tossed his trousers to his new bride. He said, "Here, put these on."

She put them on and the waist was twice the size of her body.
"I can't wear your trousers." she said.

"That's right,'' said the husband, "and don't you ever forget it. I'm the man who wears the pants in this family."

With that she flipped him her panties and said, "Try these on."

He tried them on and found he could only get them on as far as his kneecaps.

"Hell," he said. ''I can't get into your panties!"

She replied, "That's right...and that's the way it is going to stay until your attitude changes."

I Like Your Thinking

A teacher asks her class, "If there are five birds sitting on a fence and you shoot one of them, how many will be left?" She calls on little Johnny.

"None, they all fly away with the first gunshot."

The teacher replies, "The correct answer is four, but I like your thinking."

Then Little Johnny says, "I have a question for YOU. There are three women sitting on a bench having ice cream.

One is delicately licking the sides of the triple scoop of ice cream. The second is gobbling down the top and sucking the cone. The third is biting off the top of the ice cream. Which one is married?"

The teacher, blushing a great deal, replies, "Well I suppose the one that's gobbled down the top and sucked the cone."

"The correct answer is the one with the wedding ring on... but I like your thinking."

There was a cop on his horse waiting to cross the road when a little boy on his new shiny bike stopped beside him.

''Nice bike,'' the cop said, ''did Santa bring it to you?''

''Yep,'' the little boy said, ''he sure did!''

The cop looked at the bike and while handing the boy a $20 ticket he said, ''Next year, tell Santa to put a license plate on the back of it.''

To go along with the cop, the little boy said, ''Nice horse you got there sir, did Santa bring it to you?'' ''Yes, He sure did,'' said the cop.

The little boy looked up at the cop and said, ''Next year tell Santa to put the dick underneath the horse instead of on top.''

Big Boss Man

When the body was first made, all the parts wanted to be Boss.

The brain said, "I should be boss because I control the whole body's responses and functions."

The feet said, "We should be Boss as we carry the brain about and get him to where he wants to go."

The hands said, "We should be the boss because we do all the work and earn all the money."

And so it went on and on with the heart, the lungs, and the eyes until finally the asshole spoke up. All the parts laughed at the idea of the asshole being the Boss. So the asshole went on strike, blocked itself up and refused to work.

Within a short time the eyes became crossed, the hands clenched, the feet twitched, the heart and lungs began to panic and the brain fevered. Eventually they all decided that the asshole should be the boss, so the motion was passed. All the other parts did all the work while the boss just sat and passed out the shit!

Moral of the story: You don't need brains to be a boss - any asshole will do.

OK I am feeling totally hormonal this morning. I hit snooze several times. Flo is here....
I had dinner with my guy last night. He asked me to come to work when I left work, so I did. We ended up talking seriously for a couple of hours about anything and everything. Well, for the most part I felt even closer to him.
Just a few minutes ago, I called just to hear his voice this morning and to wish him a good day. Well, I was wanting more than an I love you. We haven't spent a night together in almost a week because of our schedule, his interview and timing. Frankly, I just feel like I need some cuddling! I told him he could come up here for lunch with me today -- I only get 30 minutes but it's 3 bucks and he gets a good meal. (not to mention GREAT company)...he says it will have to be a special occasion ....ok. I was BUMMED.

"Yesterday, I was buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for Charlie the wonder dog at Wal-Mart and was about to check out. A woman behind me asked if I had a dog. What did she think I had, an elephant? So since I'm retired, with little to do, on impulse, I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, and that I was starting the Purina Diet again.

Although I probably shouldn't, because I'd ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry and that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story.)

Horrified , she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no; I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish Setter's ass and a car hit us both.I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack, he was laughing so hard!

WAL-MART won't let me shop there anymore.."

I thought this was cute....

Pics of Tenn

This was one of the wonders I was able to capture...again, I am not accustomed to freezing aspects of the world. IN the Smokey Mountains--just one of the mountains of magic!
R took this of my all bundled up while awaiting the fire place to warm me up.
I just LOVED this monkey. It was in Gatlingurg in a shop window and I had to take the picture. The store was closed at the time, or I would have tried to buy it. My kids at school would have thought it was too cute!
My strong guy holding the tree up! He got home late last night from his interviews. He was a bit distraught over one of the committee members. She was rather cocky with him. He was told they had 30 applicants and they chose to interview only 3. He was impressed that he was one of the three. He felt like his weakness was they he had not yet completed his Ph.D. He's about 1/2 way there. They are supposed to let him know something by the end of next week. I get the impression he thinks it could go either way. So keep praying!
Have a decent Tuesday! Snap your fingers and make it Thursday or Friday soon...although Flo will be here and I will be moodier than ever. Send me positive vibes......and it sucks too cause I have a 3 day weekend coming up.

Oh well, I can't have everything... **SIGH**

My weekend was busy...but a bit frustrating.
Sat R took me to my favorite place for lunch. I had boiled well season shrimp and fried okra with a big glass of sweet tea. We went shopping for him to find a new pair of black pants for his 2 day interview process yesterday and today. I went to see ATONEMENT as a matinee yesterday. It was good, but not exactly what I had expected.

He's at AUBURN UNIVERSITY by the time I post this he's half way through his process. He had dinner with one of their committees last night. Today, he has presentations, interviews with another committee one of which is the History Department and a separate with the Department dean.

Please say a prayer for him!!!!!!!!!!!!! He wants this job it would be 10 months rather than 12 at the University where he is now....(we could travel!!!! ) or he could pick up summer classes and make more money. This job would be at least a 8,000 to 10,000 pay increase as well.
He has been rather stressed out about this ...who can blame him???

So with his stress...I am thinking of going to his house--I have a key-- and making his bed...and spelling out I Love You with miniature chocolate bars. He is addicted to Hershey's. So when he gets home at 10 or 11 tonight he will have a sweet sentiment awaiting.

Hey Hey
I started back to graduate school last night. I am taking an Instructional Design course and feeling a bit overwhelmed with the amount of work she is expecting. WOW. Most of the class is on line but the assignments are weekly and involve a considerable amount of reading and web creating. Web creating is not my strength...hell why do you think my blog looks so primative???

I signed up for another course that is supposed to be strictly on line and I need to make up my mind today about dropping it. I only get a refund if I drop it by 10 tonight. I can't get a syllabus out of the teacher thought~ I have tried for a couple of weeks now and no luck, its a new course and she hasn't created one yet! SCREAM.

Pray I make the right decision.

Snowy River

Hey Ya'll!!!!! I had a mini version of a winter wonderland. I really do enjoy spending time with R. He makes me happy!!! I really needed this get away! I felt decompressed and less stressed. This was our cabin~ It was really cozy.

I had a great time in Tennessee. We drove up New Year's Day and had the cabin reserved for 3 nights. The first night we got there it snowed!! We were both happy. I know I was thrilled. You have to realize growing up in the is a RARE occasion for me to see much less be able to pick up and throw a snow ball...or let snow flakes caress my face....

We did alot of shopping! Those of you who know me know that I was born to shop. We went to an 8 mile strip of arts and crafts shops. It was amazing! Shops included quilts, wood working, ceramics, pottery, art (photography and painting), and even some live music!
I am surrounded by snow!!!! YEAHHHHHHH I was as pleased as a kid in a candy store.

I am asking again.....because I didn't get but one response about proposals and the best or most unique that you have seen/heard of/ or participated in.....PLEASE SHARE WITH ME!!!!!!!!!
