At least thats what the calendar says . When I left this morning it was cold windy and snowy, so much for spring Currently the temp is about 26F or -4C but the sun is out and the snow gone. I am still surprised we've not had a huge snowfall this winter. I feel like it's waiting out there, lurking and going to hit us when we least expect it. I can't wait to feel the warmth of the summer sun and at this time of year I start to get impatient as I'm so weary of the cold, drab weather. At le
Well I went to the Doctors today for my pre-op visit, . He asks "so are you ready" and of course I start to laugh and ask "are you ready" . He said he's looking forward to it as it's a different surgery then what he commonly gets to do, it's not unfamiliar just not the same daily routine. So I was a good girl, got my blood drawn at the lab, have my pain perscription to fill which I'll do this weekend and now I just have to get my call from the surgi-center to find out what time next Thurs
Well on Monday evening, I went to meet the cast of the play. We read through the entire thing and I'll have to say that I'm really starting to look forward to this, it will be quite funny . Now as for me, as of Monday night, I had zero in the way of lines, lol. All I knew was that I'd be playing a saloon girl and that things will come in time. I had to attend a blocking rehersal last night for the first and last scenes. I now have a name and several lines. My name is Tinsel , will have
I am not a fan of grocery shopping but I usually go on a Sunday to do my weekly shopping. I needed to pick up lots of "odd things" this time such as spices and such. You know the kind of items you'd not normally buy more then a couple times a year and are never in the same location as you found them last time . Our local store here is forever rearranging things and even their own employees are never really sure where things were relocated. I was just about done with my shopping when I reme
I went to the audition last night for the play. There were 7 of us there auditioning and 3 people to listen to us read, one being the director. I have never done this before and I felt a little out of place as I was the only first timer there . I also found out after I was the only one looking at the script for the first time as the others had known about this audition for at least a week if not longer and had received copies ahead of time . I had no clue before Saturday night that it w
Well many of you who know me know that I am very community oriented and involved in a community service club. Back in the Fall we had a couple of people from our local theater group come to speak at one of our dinner meetings. They had some of us participate in an improv type skit and since, Dick has been trying to get me to go to an audition . I missed the last one in December as I was in London and the play opened this weekend. I had gone with several members of my club and sure enough, I
Well yesterday after I helped someone figure out their brand new lap top (loading different programs and stuff) I was just down the road from the mall so I decided to stop on in to see what kind of "Sales" were actually going on. I was amazed to see that JC Penney had multiple rounders full of clothing marked down to $4.77 an item , I had a good time going through them. I found a pretty blouse, 2 skirts, a sweater thats designed like a blazer (originally priced at $72) and 3 lingerie items f
I love music but have never really been a big fan of Pink, until today. I have to tell you that I've heard her new song called "Stupid Girl" and wasn't really sure what I thought about it till I saw this video. I am LMAO as this video is the best, it is so funny and very true at the same time. I hope it makes it to the top and stays there for some time as it really sends a positive message out for young girls. If you have not had a chance to see it, you can view a stream of it here: Clicky
Well I wanted to take this oppertunity to wish anyone reading this a wonderful Valentine's Day! I've always wondered about this so called holiday usually filled with flowers, hearts and chocolate and decided to pull up some fun facts about it. Here goes, hope you enjoy
Long before St Valentine lived, February 14th had strong links with fertility. The date traditionally is known for when birds choose their mates.
February 15th was the date of the Roman festival of Lupercalia -
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.

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
