I sit here today knowing I have so much I have to do today, but not really wanting to start.

I attended the Steak & Lobster dinner last night and it was yummy!! Thanks to JB for being my date.(You are truly a super friend) It was great to see my old friends!

But as I looked around and visited, I realized that things in this small town will never change!
In some ways that is good and in others its not.

Well all the clocks are changed, my work is done for now. I'm going to curl up on the couch with a good book and chill for the rest of the afternoon!!

Hope ya all had a super weekend!

This years Pumpkins came out pretty good!! We still have 2 more to do!!

Flip Off Friday!!

Woo Hoo!

Finally Flip Off Friday!

Today I give one big Flip Off to my Personel Stalker.....(yes I know you come here every day)
You call me a BITCH like its a bad thing!

When I stand up for myself and my beliefs, they call me a bitch.
When I stand up for those I love, they call me a bitch.
When I speak my mind, think my own thoughts or do things my own way, they call me a bitch.
Being a bitch means I won't compromise what's in my heart.
It means I live my life MY way.
It means I won't allow anyone to step on me.
When I refuse to tolerate injustice and speak against it, I am defined as a bitch.
The same thing happens when I take time for myself instead of being everyone's maid, or when I act a little selfish.
It means I have the courage and strength to allow myself to be who I truly am and won't become anyone else's idea of what they think I "should" be.
I am outspoken, opinionated and determined.
I want what I want and there is nothing wrong with that!
So try to stomp on me, try to douse my inner flame, try to squash every ounce of beauty I hold within me.
You won't succeed. And if that makes me a bitch, so be it.
I embrace the title and am proud to bear it.

Have a super weekend!!

My trip to Seattle was brief but fun. I got to see the Space Needle from the rental car as we drove by on the freeway to our meeting. It would have been nice to actually stay and see some sights, but it was only a fly in, fly out kinda trip.

I'm going to put Seattle on my places I want to visit before I die.

My oldest son is making the move into his new house. So now comes the fun part! I get to decorate!!!

Have a super Hump day!!!!

Corn Maze

Today we took our annual trip to the Corn Maze!! Its always lots of fun. It took us almost an hour to complete the maze. I was pretty sure this year we where going to be stuck in there forever. By the time we finally made it out I had made up my mind that I am going to quit smoking!!I will not forever be attached to my inhaler.(which I left in the car).It damn near killed me and I want to be able to enjoy activities like this for many years to come. The photo above is the actual Corn field. It is put on every year by the local 4-H club. After the corn maze we get our pumpkins that we will carve for Halloween. It took us longer to pick out the perfect pumpkins than to complete the maze.

We always carve one pumpkin for each of us. The third pumpkin is carved in honor of my dear friend CWG who pasted away in 1997.

Flip Off Friday!!

Happy Flip Off Friday!!!!

Today I am going to give a really HUGE DOUBLE Flip off to...........the 3 T's rule!! (see post dated 10/18/2005) I have made a decision to base the length of time I must avoid the 3T's based on the length of a relationship. The actual 3 T's time limit was based on a very intense 2 year relationship that had just ended.So that comes out to 25%. Based on this I only have to avoid the 3T's for 1.5 months. has been over 1.5 months!!!!!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!

Have a very very happy weekend!!!!!

Full Moon

Tonight after I picked up my youngest son from Boy Scouts, he was rambling about Armageddon. I was kinda listening to him when I heard him say that we will know when Armageddon is going to happen because monkeys will fly out of our ears!!! WOW!! I think that's good to know. I just have to wonder if they will be miniature monkeys, cause I think it would hurt like hell to have big ones flying out your ears.

Sometimes he is so helpful, usually when is is avoiding doing his home work. He just made me a cup of tea to relax my muscles and help me sleep. He knows I can't sleep on a full moon. I must be part Werewolf. My grandpa is the same way, not a Werewolf, he can't sleep for 3 nights on a full moon!

Well I'm off to see if I can't get some sleep!! Night all!!

Monday Monday!!!!

My morning started off on an unusual note, I woke up around my usual time 6am, headed for the coffee pot and grabbed my smokes, settled myself into my chair, when I heard an awful commotion coming from my back door. So off I go to investigate. Its rather dark out so I at first can not see where this noise is coming from, so I turn on the light...And lo and behold...Its my Grand Puppy, Rex(who is not so much a puppy anymore but a full grown huge lab)!! Well actually just his head stuck in the cat door, I instantly opened the door trying to free him from the cat door. (I should have grabbed my camera instead) It was just too funny!!! I managed to free him and boy was he happy!!! I do not know how long he had been there. Rex has been staying at my mothers house about 4 blocks away from my home, while my oldest son's house is completed. How he got away from her house is still a mystery. The rest of my day has been rather normal.

Hope ya all had a great Monday!!!!!

12th Anniversary

I touched on Domestic Violence in my Oct 5th post . Today marks the 12th anniversary of the beginning of my journey out of that situation. It was a long hard fight, but I feel I am a better person today because of it.

So in honor of this date, I am taking back my blog. I have been very careful recently of the things I have posted about,I have even deleted and reworded posts, but this is my blog. I created it to express my thought and feelings. So from this day forward I plan to do just that!!

Have a super Tuesday everyone!!!

Monday, October 10, 2005


Finish each day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities have crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit
to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Monday's got to love them!!!!

Ok, how many of you started out your morning like this?

So much has been given to me;
I have no time to ponder over that
which has been denied.

October Marks Domestic Violence Awareness Month

I did not write this message, I only borrowed it to share with you. Eleven years ago I was where Rachel was, but by the grace of God I survived. You may ask yourself, why we just don't leave? The answer to that is the abuse gets worse after we leave, and our abuser looses control, they do everything in their power to get us back. It becomes a living hell, worse than the one we where in, so we go back to stop the pain, and it does stop for awhile, then the cycle starts all over again. I remember as if it where yesterday the first time he put me in the hospital. I was asked many questions about what happened and of course I lied, but in my head I was screaming out, Please help me! But all I could think about was my baby sitting out in the waiting room with the man who put me in the hospital. Would he take him? Would he hurt him? So I kept silent. 6 months later I did leave for good,I endured 3 years of living hell, always looking over my shoulder, always watching. Today I live a happy and complete life with my two sons.

You can find more information by clicking on the title of this post. To reach the National Domestic Violence Hotline 1-800-799-SAFE (7233)

On April 26, 2000 Rachel died at the hands of her ex-husband.
I leave this for you as a memorial to someone I had just begun a friendship with.

Rachel's Story- To Hell and Back
by: Rachel
Mar 24 2000 04:51 AM
I have been graciously asked to share my story with all of you on this message board. Here it is:

Rachel's Story

I have read a lot of statistics and personal testimonies about Domestic Violence situations. Most of us know the patterns. Most of us are familiar with the statistics. Oftentimes statistics are just numbers unless you or someone you know have become one and have lived that hell personally. Many of us have, including myself. While we can, and should, do our part as individuals and as groups, to lobby for protection, for awareness, and for support, we also need to realize that, as difficult as it may seem, each of us has been given free will. While it may seem the most difficult thing to accept that we maintain some control of our destiny in most cases- especially after years of being told otherwise- it is ultimately the most empowering realization. I know it was for me. As a victim of the most extreme forms of physical and verbal domestic abuse for six years- having been beaten bloody and unconscious on a regular basis, having been raped and tortured almost daily- I came to a point where I knew that while I had the support of family and friends, it was ultimately me alone who would make the final decision to walk away from something that wasn't right and could no longer continue. That was probably the most difficult thing for me to do in my whole life. I always believed that marriage is something you do not take lightly. I took the words "till death do us part" literally up to that point. My children- whom I loved and cherished more than anything in the world- were the product of this marriage. Up until I made this difficult decision, I thought it was my duty to God, and to my family to continue things as they were. Until I realized that "till death do us part" took on a whole new meaning. If I had stayed, this man would have killed me. Each beating escalated to the point that I was convinced this man will end my life at some point had I stayed. Imagine how I felt the day I decided to walk away for my own safety and for the safety of my children. I didn't sneak out of the house. I waited for the father of my children to come home. I looked him in the face and told him I was leaving, and with escorts, I did so with my children and ran for three years in fear. Today, I have attained the financial stability to provide for my family after a long and hard road, that far exceeds the money my ex husband would not allow me to have in our marriage. Today, I am engaged in a wonderful, healthy relationship that made me realize that I wasn't the problem all along as my ex husband told me every time I was beaten for offenses only unacceptable to him. I cannot promise you financial success after you leave a marriage, nor will I tell you that leaving a marriage or relationship is the right thing to do in a particular case. But I will tell you that the cycle of violence can end with you and with those whom you allow to help you should you find yourself trapped in an abusive relationship. From the time I said "I do" I fell under the umbrella of statistics that show that a woman is battered every 15 seconds in this country. In the time it took you to read this, approximately 6 women were battered in one form or another by an intimate. What happens behind closed doors is not none of our business, because behind those closed doors could be your sister, your mother, your daughter, your friend..even you..This is how I envision a stop in the cycle. I envision a candle that lights the way for others. I have a candle and perhaps others do as well. And that is a start, but imagine what happens when the flames of two or more candles join. They shine brighter and with greater strength but don't suffer in their individuality. So, I have a flame and maybe you or someone you know does also. What do you want to do with them? They could mean the difference between life and death for those who cannot yet make their voices heard.

Just one month and two days after this was written
Rachel was beaten.
She lived long enough to tell authorities who did it.

The new Nickleback CD comes out today!! If I did not have to work I'd be at the store right now! I have to have it. I listen to a wide variety of music, classic rock, reggae, country, jazz. You name it! I listen to it. I feel it has a way of cleansing the soul.

So today I leave you with one of my favorite lyrics from Kid Rock! This was my morning commute music. You have got to hear the whole song it Rocks!!!!!

"Run Off to LA"

Its a classic line baby I just wanna be friends
But baby my friends don't have the keys to my Mercedes Benz,
no I think I know what you mean
You wanna talk and such
Tell me all your problems
But we don't fuck
Aint that right
I had plenty of friends before I met you
I don't need no more
So now I thinks its time you started headin out for that door,
and even tho I feel real bad tonight
Please pack your shit
And take the first train out of my life

I have decided I need a hobby. So I'm taking up photography! I just purchased this camera after much research. Maybe I can turn it into a business. I really need some more deductions. I had to pay taxes out the ass for last year!

Have a super day!!!

Sunday Confession

I love the Monster Truck Nationals!! We go every year. Its just something about men in big trucks. Lord!!! Those guys are Hot Hot Hot! Tom Meentz in Maximum Destruction is my all time favorite! I have a collection of autographed T's from all the years that we have gone. I even have a collection of small Monster Trucks!

So, if that's a sin, I ask the Lord to forgive me! I really do not think it is a sin, just a little unknown fact about me!
