Something I came across that I thought you'd all enjoy. Even though it's referring to women over 40 I think we all rock no matter how old or young we are!
Andy Rooney says:
As I grow in age, I value women who are over 40 most of all. Here are
just a few reasons why:
A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night to
ask, "What are you thinking?" She doesn't care what you think.
If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn
I received this in an e-mail and thought I'd like to share it with everyone. I think it has a lot of meaning, hope you enjoy reading it.
Recently I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport. They had announced the departure.
Standing near the security gate, they hugged and the mother said, "I love you and I wish you enough".
The daughter replied, "Mom, our life together has been more than enough. Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enou
Well anyone who knows me knows how I dread winter; just hate it. The summer we had this past year was spectacular, something we hadn't seen in several years and I loved every moment of it. I started sitting out in the sun in mid April tanning my goose bumps but I didn't care as the winter before was so snowy and cold. We were so lucky to see the snow recede as early as it did and I for one was not going to miss a single day of sunshine basking in it's warmth and radiance.
This brings me ba
Hmm, lets see. Someone started a post about crazy next door neighbors and I thought hmm, Iâ€™ve had my fair share of a few and it's probably best to just blog about some of my experiences . Here goes, and yes, it's all true!
Brooklyn- Crazy E and her teenage kids , where do I even begin? This woman had gotten an above ground pool in her yard. Every year it was the same story for about 5-6 years . They would drain the pool from the year before as the water was disgusting and smell
I never imagined being this attached to a dog (well most people see him as a dog, but we know the truth!). I had cats growing up, but when I started looking into getting my own place, the idea of company came up and I started researching shih tzus just solely based on what I had known of a friend's dog several years ago. I decided the breed was for me, and then out of no where, a co-worker said she knew of some puppies that were probably ready for homes.
Two nights later, I got a call f
First please forgive any typos as I have had 4 hrs sleep in since Tues night with a very light 3 hrs in-between.
What can I say, so far I'm having a great time although I am dead tired. I arrived yesterday at my hotel at 11 am their time (6am our) and I didn't sleep last night (I tried ) . I had walked all over the area yesterday and ended up last night at Harrodsâ€™s visiting Father Christmas (yes, I took my photo with him) and today I was all over London literally. I visited the D
Well it's been awhile since I've blogged but thought this deserved an entry, ! Those of you who know me know that I had been planning to travel to Europe this past September with my brother. I was really looking forward to this trip only to have my brother take a new position with another company, unable to go away. This left me with the choice of either canceling or going alone. After much debating and finding an offer I couldn't refuse, I am leaving on the evening of Nov 30th and will be
This past week has been a hard one for me. I am a speech-language pathologist in a public school. My first year of working (the 2003-04 school year), I had a little boy on my caseload that had a terminal disorder. He lived a lot longer than anyone ever expected and he passed away in his parents arms on November 10.
Here is what I wrote to read during the share time during visitation hours:

Wow, sometimes life can be so good and sometimes it seems like God just is mad at the whole world. My cousin passed away last week from a brain tumor, and a good friend of ours has just been given a few days to live who also has brain cancer. Sometimes you have to wonder what God is thinking. When a young very intelligent person has to go through something like this. Especially one who is such a good person. In all right now we have 4 family members or good friends who are battling this ter
Shelby is now 5 months old, potty training coming along well, Our first show will be in about 24 days, yikes am I ready for this! Shelby is such a smart little guy his favorite thing to do is to grab my hand and mouth it, very lovingly, he loves his momma.
So much is going on in my head, sitting here I hear Diamond being a morning grouch as he always is, Shelby (my new furkid) just wants to play, signed Shelby up for Puppy Classes to begin Training, going to try and do some fun matches in October and get him ready for our first show in November..Seems like so much to do in so little time..Cannot believe Shelby this morninghe ran out of his crate stright to his bed in the kitchen and piddled, #&#&## now why did you do that Shelby Wu? Though
Evacuating from Rita was one of the scariest experiences in my life. I live in a mandatory evacuation zone which was scheduled for evacuation on Thursday at noon. I decided to leave Wednesday at 1pm, just as I got home from work. I had already made hotel reservations at a Holiday Inn in Fort Worth which accepted pets (no freakinâ€™ WAY were Princess and Murphy going to be left behind or stuck in a shelter. Not when we have alternatives.).
I cannot describe how difficult it is to look ar
I was told not to worry about it for now as the chances of it happening so soon were nill but pfft, it happened! That's what I get for listening to a man! On Wednesday morning I awoke at 6am to turn on my screen and see a message to restart my computer. There was an uneasy feeling about it as I turned the power off but there was no other choice but to.....so I did. Little did I know that it meant everything that was ever on my computer, every e-mail, e-mail address, file. photo, graphic, son
Well my last kitty passed away about an hour ago. I tried really hard not to get attatched, but I had to cry anyway. At least I tried and the vet said that I was doing everything right, it just wasn't meant to be. So I am sitting here trying not to be sad but it isn't working. :)
Well, I am now down to one kitten. I am trying so hard not to get attatched to the little guy, but it is hard. We found the mother cat and she wants in the house, but she doesn't want anything to do with the kitten. So he is sleeping inside my heated throw blanket and I am feeding him with an eyedropper every 2 hours. By now I am dead on my feet getting up all night. Now I remember why I only had 2 children!
The poor little guy has the poops this morning. The vet told me to give hi
Well, the little female kitten with the cuts passed away about 3:30 this morning, but she sure did put up a fight. The two little boys are still doing okay. I hope they are getting enough to eat. I don't know how much a newborn kitten should eat.
Well I had better get lunch started for my kids and their friends. They always come home for lunch, well you know cafeteria food. My son needs as much nutrition as possible. He is 6'2" and weighs 121 lbs. He has a 29" waist and a 38" inse
Another anniversary is here to remind us all of a harsh tragedy that happened 4 years ago. The World Trade Center was my favorite place. Whenever I flew home the plane would always fly by it or if I was driving I'd see it from New Jersey, either way I knew that I was almost home. It was always a comfort when it was within sight and at the same time brought a feeling of excitement.
I guess that being a New York City girl, I will always have a bond with this big amazing
I guess today is about the same as most days. I am busy with getting things together for a fundraiser for my daughter's dance team. My mother-in-law called and my father-in-law is going for more tests to find out why he has been feeling so bad lately. I just finished cleaning up the lunch mess from my kids and 4 of their closest friends. The toilet is clogging up and so goes my life.
I just looked over and Buster has stuffed himself into this tiny little box and his fat little body is
It's a lovely day here in Houston. The sun is shining. The birds are singing. A warm breeze flows over the construction site next door in such a direction that we don't have to smell it at lunch.
Speaking of lunch...
Since it's such a lovely day, I decided to escape my ice-cold cubicle and sit outside to enjoy the weather. Luckily for me there was one bench and table left. Unbeknownst to me, it was covered in bird poop.
And many thanks to all of the coworkers who didn't fr
:) I washed all of my jeans when I was getting ready to start my monthly cycle. How does that make sense? Right when I'm feeling hugely fat, am completely bloated and have zero sense of humor, I make sure all of my blue jeans are way too tight. I'm talking so tight, the circulation is cut off to my head. (Which could explain things except that I lost my mind before I washed them.) Seriously, I stood up and saw SPOTS!
The cycle is about over (thank God), and I'm just now start
Well Country Fair Days are behind me again for another year, thank goodness as it is always a fun but exhausting event. Attendance was down from previous years but some of that might have been attributed to the weather. Saturday started out chilly, cloudy and windy but quickly heated up with the abundance of sun, followed by some of the heaviest downpours all within a 7 hour time period ! The one bad thing, not everyone anchored their tents, so some tried to go flying off. This is not s
I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do. Some of you will be more willing then others to put your thought or ideas in here but I love it, makes you feel good when someone takes the time to read about you and the events you choose to share. My blog will contain random things from events in my life, public and personal (very personal at times) to updates on what I'm working on or future ideas for the board. I already have 2 active blogs but have not updated them as recent as I should. If you
