Tuesday already!!

Yesterday just flew by. I was super busy at work and probably will be today again. The fog of depression seems to be lifting and for that I am grateful. Depression sucks! I mean it really does its just down right depressing, and I made up my mind that I was just not going to be that way!!

I can't believe it almost Christmas and I have not even started my shopping. I guess I better get out there and shop my heart out! I'm just do not know what to get my boys this year. My family draws names so that makes it easier on all of us. All I really want for Christmas is a fence and a really good looking guy to put it up!!! Hey.......... a lady can dream!!
Whats on your Christmas list?!

Hope you all have a great day!!

Never fails!

I get a long weekend and I got sick!! I spent most of Thursday & Friday sleeping. I'm feeling better today! I might even actually get out of my PJ's! So my Thanksgiving was kind of a blur.

My son and I put a coat of paint on the hallway and we hope to have it finished up today. I'm going to try to enjoy what's left of my weekend. Maybe do some shopping. I have never been one of those people who gets up at the crack of dawn the day after Thanksgiving and goes shopping. That's to many people for me. I actually do most of my shopping online. Its so much easier!

I'm getting out of the house today and enjoy the sunshine. I seem to be really depressed and I can't figure out why.It must be the holidays! I have managed to loose 10lbs and thats not a good thing, but it always happens when I get depressed. I seem to just be rambling! So I'm gonna jet out of the house and soak up some sunshine!

Have a super weekend!!

Pregnancy, Estrogen and Women!

Pregnancy Q & A & more!

I am so glad its a short week! Tomorrow is my Friday!!!!!! I had the day from hell today, but I still managed to keep a smile on my face. On the home front the new computer seems to be working fine and I am still in the process of loading all my software. That is such a pain in the ass! I really can not think of anything witty to say so....I'm done gonna grab a beer and see what's on TV.

Sunday Update!

I got up early Sunday morning. I was going to get my book work done for the bar early, so I could finish my painting. I went to update my accounting software. I had to turn off my Virus stuff to do this. So my computer will not let me update so I restart and nothing happens. My desktop comes up, but I can't access any of my programs. I try everything!!! Scream in frustration!!!! So I decide I have put up with my computer having its way with me and decide to get a new one. So off I go about a 40 minute drive from home to the nearest well known chain store. I pick the computer I need, wait 2 hours while they get it ready. So I went shopping and got some really nice sweaters, On sale!!!! Woo hoo!!!!! So back to the well know chain store where my computer is still not ready. I wait another 30 minutes and finally its ready. So I head home thinking my whole day has been shot I have just enough time to set it up load up my software and then hit the sack. Well.......I load my accounting software and restore all my information, restart, and yes you guessed it I get the blue screen of death. Not enough memory!!!! I bought a computer with !! WTF!!! So I take a closer look and I have the wrong computer!!! I call the well known chain store and the explain the situation. Then I get to speak to the manager, he offers to take $50.00 off when I come in and do the exchange. I have just enough time to drive 40 minutes to exchange it. Which takes 2 hours!!!! So I get home only install my DSL service and head to be because it has been along day. This morning, I grab my coffee head to my computer and OMG!!!!! The same blue screen of death!!!!! I manage to restore to an early point, but that's about it. I'm just a tad bit upset!!! I will be calling again. Its a brand new computer!!! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!

Hope you all have a super Monday!! I will be on the phone kicking ass!!!

Paint Fumes!

I have been painting my hallway today and I think the fumes have gotten to me. I have a massive headache but the hall way looks pretty good. I just need to finish one more coat and then the trim. I going with colors this time instead of your normal off white. I felt I needed a little color in my life. I really hate painting, but it has to be done, and I only fell off the ladder once! Which is really good for me. I am a major klutz. I even managed to get most of the paint on the walls instead of myself. Just wanted to update. I'm headed out the door for one of those wonderful singles meet and greets. Did I mention dating really sucks!! Its fun but it does have its down sides. Everyone is so nice when you first meet them and after the awhile the real person comes out and sometimes its scary. I'm thinking about just giving it up and living the rest of my life as an old lady with cats!!

Have a super evening!

I'm spending my weekend in reflection on my past and returning myself back to the time when I was happy. I seem to have lost my faith and I want it back! I gave up my spirituality and that was so wrong. It is so easy to slip back into your old ways. But having already fought this battle I know in my heart it will not take me long to return to the person God has chosen for me to be. God has put me here for a purpose. I believe! I have faith! I have trust! I am not afraid!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Now what does HNT and tacos have in common you ask? Well nothing really! I made tacos last night for dinner at my sons request. We have not had tacos since one of my former boyfriends cooked them. Which is really nice, but, and there is a but. He did not use any seasonings in his taco meat because it made them too much like Taco Bell tacos....hmmmmmm.....So we had hamburger meat wrapped in tortillas... I do not complain because he is cooking, but sometimes I really did not understand his reasoning. Like he did not like me to wear jeans because he felt women stole jeans from men....hmmmmmmmm......SO back to the tacos, I get home from work dinner is ready but I'm not hungry and would like to get some work done in the backyard before I eat. He never liked to eat right after he got home... So I think no problems right? Wrong!!! He feeds the kids and himself and yells out the backdoor to me:

Him:Sweetie, are you going to eat?

Me: Not right now Babe,I really need to get all of these weeds cut down before the city comes by and gives me a ticket for a fire hazard.(What I really want to add is, "That I have been asking you to help me with for weeks, and you could have done it on any of your 4 days off")

Him: Ok I will save it for you.

Me: Thanks Babe!

Later, I come in the house and clean up. He is giving the little one a bath. I head into the kitchen to eat, but can not find the taco stuff. So I head off to the bathroom to ask:

Me: Babe, where is the food?

Him: I threw it away.

Me: Why?

Him: Because there was not enough left.

Me: Them why did you offer it to me earlier?

Him: ummmmmmmmmm, Well there was only enough for one or two.

Me: that's all I ever eat.

I realize there is no point on continuing this conversation. It was just another one of his punishments he loved to dish out.

So now you now a little about why I am single again.

Thanks for letting me get that off my chest!

Happy HNT!!!!!

#1...Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting weak?

#2..Why do banks charge a fee on "insufficient funds" when they know there is no money in the account?

#4...Why doesn't glue stick to the bottle?

#11..Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?

#12..Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

#13..Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

#16..How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

#18...Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?

#19..In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

So much had happened in the last couple of weeks its almost been overwhelming! So this morning I'm taking a small break to blog. I had a great 3 day weekend, if you take out the near scalping I almost received on Saturday, it was a close one. Yesterday was a whirlwind of work, and this morning I come in prepared to tackle the stacks of paperwork on my desk only to find the internet is down! No big deal, I thought, but it seems all the work I have to get done requires the internet! I guess I should make hard copies of my forms and such. It now makes me wonder what we did before we had the great wide web. I'm working on a new personal business project and that has taken up alot of time. But if it all works out, it will be well worth the time and effort I have put on. Plus with starting dating again my time is pretty booked. But I'm having the time of my life and it feels great!!

Back to work for me!!
Have a happy Tuesday!!
I got tired of working so I took this quiz.

Your Seduction Style: Fantasy Lover

You know that ideal love that each of us dreams of from childhood? That's you!
Not because you posess all of the ideal characteristics, but because you are a savvy shape shifter.
You have the uncanny ability to detect someone's particular fantasy... and make it you.

You inspire each person to be an idealist and passionate, and you make each moment memorable
Even a simple coffee date with you can be the most romantic moment of someone's life
By giving your date exactly what he or she desires, you quickly become the ideal lover.

Your abilities to make dreams come true is so strong, that you are often the love of many people's lives.
Your ex's (and even people you have simply met or been friends with) long to be yours.
No doubt you are the one others have dreamed of... your biggest challenge is finding *your* dream lover.

Dating Again!

Yes, I have jumped back into dating. Call me crazy, but its so much fun!!!
This time I have made a vow to myself to do the background check before I get involved. Call me a bitch, but it is really something we all should do. I know we are supposed to trust people and I do, but having some information on that person is kinda handy and very informative. Wish I would have done this in the past, but I am one who learns from my mistakes.
Hell, at my age its more like a job interview than a date. So I'm taking my time and enjoying every minute of it.

Hope you all had a super weekend!!!!

Dominant Personality: Understanding

Good Traits: You gravitate towards people,
and are a shoulder to lean on. You give advice
at any given time.

Bad Traits: You aren't close with any one
person. You immerse yourself in other people's
problems and forget your own.

People see you as: Friendly, secretive, and
popular. People envy you, and may try and use
you as a tool

You're most like: Grace. You both have
positive relationships with people. Neither of
you have close friends, but unlike graceful
people, you try to help people out and aren't
as arrogant.

You need more: Solitude. You hardly get the
chance to breathe when you take on the world's
problems. You can't take other's
responsibilities or put them before your own.
Be selfish once in a while and discover who you
really are.

What's your dominant trait? (10 unique results)

My Tummy Hurts!!!

One of my favorite things to do with my son is watch movies. We have theme nights. Last night we had Willy Wonka night. Its one of our favorite movies. So when the new version came out we had to have it. So what you do is buy lots of candy, cookies and ice cream. Pop in the movies and eat all the candy you want. Its really lots of fun.

The new version is good but I really do not think anyone can ever top Gene Wilder! He was awesome as Willy Wonka!

Have a super Wednesday!!

Weekend Update!!

Weekends go so fast, I did not get any painting done. But I baked some awesome cookies. I went out Friday night dancing. I love to dance and have not been in ages. I had a blast. It has been along time since I have hit the hot spots out of town. I was glad to get out of this town if just for the night.

Saturday brought a call from an ex boyfriend(from 4 years ago) it was great to chat. We must have talked for 2 hours. We talked about our breakup and neither of us could come up with why it happened. He asked if I had been to our favorite restaurant, which I have not. It was our place, Im silly that way I guess. We always went for drives to find the most out of the way places to eat. He was very close to both of my boys, as a matter of fact my oldest son and his friends still talk about him and tell me I made a huge mistake letting him go. So I guess today Im feeling kinda sentimental, and wishing that things could have been different with him. Who knows maybe this will be a new beginning for us. I know that I miss him and his quirky ways. Maybe nothing will come of it, but I know I will always love him and he will always be one of my true friends.

Sunday is almost over and tomorrow brings a new day.

Hope you all had a super weekend!

I moved!!

I decided to move my blog because of personal reasons. I just felt that I needed a place to vent about things in my life. It becomes hard to do that when sometimes the people I want to vent about read my blog. Ok so its my fault I gave out my blog address. So I withdrew and it sucked. So it was just easier to move. But it only took that certain person a very short time to find my new site. So I will post whatever I want and if it hurts you, remember you made the choice to come here.

So here we go!!!

I am human, I hurt, I love, and I trust!

A Love Story

I will seek and find you . . .

I shall take you to bed and have my way with you .

I will make you ache, shake & sweat until you moan & groan.

I will make you beg for mercy, beg for me to stop.

I will exhaust you to the point that you will be relieved when I'm finished with you.

And, when I am finished, you will be weak for days.

All my love,

The Flu.

Now, get your mind out of the gutter and go get your flu shot!!!
