A new holiday for me me me!!

it was annouced at work yesterday that they are going to start to give us Presidents day off!!! wooohoooo!! I am so excited! SO haha to you postal and bank workers, I have one of YOUR holidays off too now. I am so happy about this.

In other news, we are going to see my mom this weekend if the weather is ok. so far it looks like it will be ok. My brother said he "needed to talk to" me and hubby but I will only see him Friday night at the applebees. So I am hoping he wont try to push the move issue, I guess he wont though if that's the only time I see him. My kids have plans Friday but are coming Saturday. My plan is to get mom out of the house as much as possible this weekend. She is becoming a hermit!

This cold weather is really bothering me, my legs have been hurting alot more. I am sure its the cold that doing it. Then yesterday I heard a stupid song on the radio and it reminded me of dad and I was crying and driving. Not good. But I have been doing better, lately I have only cried once a week and that's when Grey's is on. They need a happy episode with no death or dying dads or Amish girls. Is that too much to ask?? OK it was funny when Izzie said George needed so much sex he broke his girlfriend's vagina. haha. I wish my husband was more like George LOL!

I hate mondays oh yes I do!
Hubby told me last week I needed to get a hobby! This computer is my hobby. Maybe he thinks I need some other hobby. I dunno, I am not crafty in any way shape or form. My dad did crosswords obsessively, maybe I should try that? Worrying about what to do for a hobby is stressing me out! Aren't hobbies supposed to calm you??

I'm pissed today, I cant post utube videos anymore since I upgraded. I had a hilarious Office one to post. I dont understand it because Its part of Goggle too I think.

I got my rings back, Yeah! I missed them. I had to have a new head put on the engagement ring too. I have tried and tried to get a decent pic but I this was the best one. I really need to figure out how to turn off the flash on my digital camera.

Yesterday hubby and I went grocery shopping. I found Clamato Juice! I had to take a pic. Notice they had it beside the sports drinks haha! But get this! Hubby has drunk Clamato juice and likes it!! He says you can drink with beer. Clamato juice and Beer??? Really sounds nasty to me. Must be a Canadian thing. Has anyone else hard of this?

More proof that hiking is bad for you....

woman saves husband from Mountain Lion

This is why I don't hike, there are critters just waiting LOL. Actually if my legs worked right maybe I would hike just because I could.

Someone asked what was wrong with my legs. I had heart failure 4 years ago and at the same time I started losing the use of my legs. I was diagnosed with Multifocal Motor Nueropathy, and none of the treatments have helped. Its kinda like MS I guess. I also have lupus and a history of blood clots (in the legs) so I am just a mess of medical issues LOL.

I try not to talk about it alot or whine about the pain, because really no one wants to hear and what can they do anyway? These week I have been close to whining though, Its been a bad week. Extreme temps make this worse and its been extremely cold here for the south this week.

BUT!!!! We were promised a 1/2 day at work today wooohoooo!! YEAH for 1/2 day Fridays!!

OH!!! PS I guess, Can you PS a blog like a letter??? Well I am so deal with it. I wanna know who else cried during Greys last night?? I was a blubbering fool.

Later, really this time.

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.....

Yesterday was an adventurous day for me. lets go back and relive all the fun....

I had to get my blood drawn, its usually a quick process. But I got added to my husband's health insurance this year as well as keeping my own (Hopefully this will help me from adding alot to my mountain of medical debts) and there was some discussion when I checked in as to what is primary and secondary. Then I go back to the lab and I hate to wait 45 minutes, they were short staffed. Usually I am in and out. I took my book but I had people on both sides of me, the lady on the left started talking to me. Then the older couple to the left were having a loud conversation about grits. Yes grits. They weren't arguing really but they were having a loud disagreement as to whether grits are a grain and would he have eaten eggs that morning if she had made them?? The answer (I know you are dying to know) is NO he wouldn't but his point was that she didn't know that. Needless to say I didn't get any reading done. I wonder if me and the Canadian will be like that in our later years? But anyway when I finally got back to the lab, it was quick and no pain so that was nice.

After the visit to the vampires, I had to get some groceries. I had 3 items on my list. But I walked out with $46 worth of groceries! How does this happen? Are there aliens that abducted me in my past and implanted a micro chip to make me buy more groceries than I need so they can track human eating habits? (hey, it could happen!) Look at what I was tricked into buying! Yummy frozen mini eclairs!

Last night I fell again, I have been falling alot lately, its the nature of the beast when your legs and feet don't work like they are supposed to. The dogs thought I was playing and were all over me, they are not too bright sometimes. The worst part about falling is trying to get myself up off the floor. Sounds easy but for me its not. I have to crawl over to the nearest taller object and pull myself up with just my arms as my legs are useless in such a situation (no yoga classes for me)

I talked to Stuffgirl last night and she has a date Sunday with Cute military guy!! She is excited, long hair guy never took her dates she says, they just "hung out" whatever. She is young and good looking she should be having fun so I am glad. The other guy she went out with never called her. She thinks its because they went to all you can eat pizza buffet and he saw how much food she can pack away for such a skinny girl LOL. Kornfan says he has been invited to play guitar with a band that has had some local success, so I am thrilled! Maybe he will get rich and famous and be a rock star and buy his mom extravagant presents (hey it can happen too LOL)

Back to last night. I wasn't sleepy and was up later then usual. I was laying there close to sleep when I hear a barking dog outside. I lay there wondering who is the inconsiderate person with the barking dog at midnight. The barking continued and I was getting irritated, when it occurred me that barking was coming from MY yard!!! I got up and checked and Baby had gone out the dog door and for some reason was barking like a fool!! Greyhounds are not usually big barkers but no one told her and she is very vocal. Took me forever to get her inside and I had to lure her in with a treat (that's right lets reward this behavior but I was desperate) I am sure all my neighbors hate me this morning.

Maybe today will be a better day. At least I have eclairs.

I forgot to mention another addiction....

Celebrity Gossip. I just love it. I don't know why, and I know its bad but I cant seem to help myself. And I don't understand why some stars complain about the paparazzi but hang out where they KNOW they will be. Britney goes on TV to fuss about the media, and then in the next week is selling her pictures to People Magazine. Speaking of Brit, have I missed something? I don't think I have seen any pictures of Jaden. Is she finally wising up??

I know I am in the minority here but Brad and Angelina SO get on my nerves with their "I'm going to save the world" thing they have going on. Yes I know they donate time and money to the downtrodden. I feel like Brad is just into the humanitarian thing because he wants to continue to screw Angelina. Whatever. She couldn't even be bothered to answer questions at the Golden Globes. She was to promote her movies yet she is too above everyone else to be interviewed?? They acted like they were Royalty or something.Plleaze!! I really feel for Jennifer Aniston, having her xhusbands infidelity constantly in her face.

Can you tell I have nothing to post about?? Ha. Happy Tuesday

Comments whore....
can Anyone answer why I got more comments on a post that most people couldn't read than any other post?? Does this say something about how boring I am? I think so.

Its a dreary miserable Sunday here. They were calling for an ice storm but then they changed it and its 43 now no ice but its rainy and damp icky cold. I hate cold weather!! How much further south do I need to move to get away from winter? Last week it was so mild that the daffodils were blooming. See, the flowers are as confused as me!

Beth had posted about addictions and I responded in her comments but thought I would list my addictions here too. Join in, its fun!

These are in no particular order

1. TV. I have always watched too much TV. I am better lately and don't watch nearly as much but I cant Miss The Office, Earl or Greys! Waiting for new episodes of Heroes, Sopranos, entourage and Project Runway.

2. Banana pops! Mayfields changed the name from banana stix to banana pops. Doesn't matter, I still have to have some!

3. Tim Hortons coffee. I fell in love while visiting the Canadians homeland and now have to order off ebay for my fix.

4. Carbs. If its got noddles or Rice and is served with Bread than I am one happy camper.

5. Blogging

6. and now Bunco on MSN (thanks Zed!)

7. Minute Maid Fruit punch. I used to be addicted to Coca Cola and still drink those at work for the caffeine but at home I have to have fruit punch. Talk about Carbs and sugar. I do drink a lot of water though too.

8. Music. I really am enjoying my new toys, my gigabeat and my Sirius Radio.

9. my hubby. I complain sometimes but I love him so much its scary. Gwen Stefani summed it up, "I still love to wash in your old bath water, makes me feel like you couldn't love another. I cant help it, you're my kind of man" I tried to upload the video but it didn't work. Just picture me as Gwen (I wish)

Update, now the ice storm is maybe back on?? LOL This global warming is confusing us all!

Friday, January 19, 2007

Yup thats how I feel today...

George's dad died on GA last night and it was pretty bad. It brought back memories (has it only been 2 months now?) of my dad's last couple of days. I was thinking of him alot yesterday anyway. George summed it up last night "I don't know how to exist in a world without my dad in it". Of course I am better lately but it still just sucks.

On the work front we had some drama going on last week but thank goodness its over. I hate drama. OH!! the office was great last night! I wanna be on the party committee :)

Gotta run. Work calls. Oh joy.

Ice Ice baby....
well we are in the middle of an ice storm here is redneckville. I don't know whether to get ready for work or not. If the schools are closed then we are closed and the school district here waits FOREVER to freaking decide anything. I want to go back to bed. There is nothing better than sleeping when an ice storm is raging.

I just saw where TR Knight is going to be on Ellen today!! So I hope I get to stay home and see that since I am
don't have my TIVO yet (I want TIVO bad). I love TR! He is so cute. He plays George on Grey's Anatomy and there has been controversary about one of his co stars (the very handsome Issiah Washington) calling him a (insert gay slur word here. I refuse to use that word at all). This whole situation is really saddens me and I am on Team TR on this one. Why do people have to be so bigoted and mean? I mean come on!

News on the
Stuffgirl front, turns out her boyfriend is now saying he is "in a relationship" with the 16 year old. What pisses me off is he told Stuffgirl when he broke up with her that the reason for the breakup was she was too demanding and all his friends hated her, making her feel bad about herself when he just wanted to get in the pants of this 16 year old!!! I wanna go wring his scrawny neck!!! Really Its a good thing I live so far away because I am seeing red!! Lets chip away at her self esteem, and break up with her. She seems better and even went out on a date last night (she has 2 guys ask her out since they broke up) so hopefully she is better today

OK I better check the school schedule again.


Update. I had to work all day. I didnt get to go back to sleep OR see Ellen. Damn.

How do you mend a broken heaaartttt....

Stuffgirl and the long hair guy (that finally did get a haircut)broke up last Tuesday, and she has been a wreck. She was too upset to go to work on Thursday, she has been calling me LOTS. She is brokenhearted, and this jerk of a guy is now dating a freaking 16 year old from what I understand. He could get arrested for that cant he?? I am trying to be supportive and I remember how bad my first break up was. I have been through this before with her with the same guy, they dated a year ago and he broke up with her to be with another girl and pretty much as soon as Stuffgirl got over him and started the dating the cute guy with the military haircut, here he came again wanting to get back together and she dumped cute military haircut guy.

I am worried, she seems ok and then she is calling me in tears again. Last night she called me at 12:30 am! "oh were you asleep??" So she ruins another good nights sleep (I am keeping track from babyhood on, my favorite moment was when she was about 5 I woke up to her running down the hall to my bedroom, leaning over and looking at me barfing all over me) It hurts me to hear the pain her voice, and I cant do anything about this one. Its part of growing up. I guess. The lesson here is never EVER trust a teenage boy and turn the ringer off your phone.

Lets all take a moment to mourn the passing of another weekend. And all you folks that have MLK day off, enjoy. I really dont like you today.

Sunday, January 14, 2007

Its official...I am old.

I had fun bowling. I didnt bowl though but it was fun nonetheless. Next time I will bowl, but I need my own shoes, I just cant see wearing those shoes that everyone in the place has worn! I mean ewwww!
Anyway, I need to talk about my hair. I have mentioned this before on my blog but I stopped coloring my hair 2 years ago. I have alot of grey but still some brown...ok its mostly grey. But I kinda like it,. it looks frosted I think. I just hate the continual upkeep of dying my hair. I dyed it over 15 years and I am tired of dealing with it! Anyway, it really irks my friend Judy. She hates that I wont dye my grey and Saturday she told me I looked old. I ignored her as usual. But then TODAY I went out to breakfast at the Golden corral breakfast with another friend. After we ate my friend was looking at the receipts and asked why my breakfast was cheaper than hers. I looked and they rang me with a senior citizen discount!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ACKKKKKK! I really cannot deal with that. I am buying me some was in color tomorrow.

I am thinking of getting a Betta fish for my desk. I will name him Kiefer. Or Jack Bauer. I wonder if Kiefer has to dye his hair. Probably not *sigh* I am so not ready for a senior citizen discount!!!

24 was awesome tonight! I missed it so.

Gone Bowling.....seriously!

My best friend got the kiss bowling ball for Christmas, and she wants to go to the no smoking bowling today. I don't bowl, so this should be real fun. The things I do for my friends. Anyway I am staying over at her house tonight (she is the one that lives an hour away). Hilarity will ensue.

Oh! My mom did go to the cemetary yesterday and was not robbed,


Friday, January 12, 2007

I am getting better I think.

I don't think of my dad constantly. I am not mad at him anymore. It still sucks, don't get me wrong but I am getting on with my life such that it is. I have learned one thing, I am going to get out and do stuff. I am planning a trip for me and the Canadian since I am not going on my Jekyll Island trip this year. Dont know where or when yet, but I am thinking spring (so it wont be too hot) and someplace within driving distance.

My mom however, seems to be getting worse. She was with him for over 50 years and the last 10 years they pretty were together 24/7. She is very sad. I am trying to get stuffgirl to go stay the night over there soon but she is in mid break up with her boyfriend and all that drama.

Mom wants to go to the cemetery and leave some flowers on dads grave but was warned by people at her church that cemeteries are the new Mall as far as robberies go, so she is afraid she will get robbed! Have you ever? Robbing people in a cemetery is a new low! I will be going up to visit in 2 weeks so I will take her then if she cant get there before.

The picture is stuffgirl with Dad's licence plate, Kornfan was not there that day. I wanted a picture of the plate because its gone now, we had to turn it in to get the insurance off their other car. But its sad, someone else is Papax2 now. The bear is the Bubba, its a talking bear that was popular several years ago, Dad loved that stupid talking bear! Its freaky,the battery in Bubba died when dad did.

Anyway, its FRIDAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! Yeah! wooohoooo!!

Just guessing here but I think he was a dentist. I took this the day of dad's funeral. I know, I am not being wordless! I suck at being wordless LOL.

Nothing says romance quite like Larry the Cable guy...

I have to apologize for the quality of the picture, I took it with my cell phone at the local redneck Grocery store. I just couldnt believe that they had this product. And for a mere $6.49 its a bargain for sure. There will be some happy redneck women around here come valentine's day!

In more personal news I can no longer wear my wedding rings. They have been too tight for over a year and yesterday I almost ripped my finger off trying to get them off. My hands are swollen from my disease AND my weight gain has contributed to this. I never wanted to take these rings off they mean so much to me! But I am taking them this weekend to the get them resized. But I want everyone to know that when my pictures hits the tabloids (Damn papazzri just wont leave me alone) with a close up of my ringless hand and the caption ITS OVER that I am not breaking up with Brad Pitt ooops I mean the Canadian.

I want my cake and eat it too...

warning, depressed rant post. Read at your own peril.

I have made plans to go visit my mom the last weekend of the month. I have cleared schedules, took time off and everything. The plan, I THOUGHT was to go through dad's stuff. At first my brother and mom said I would be there. But then when I told them when I was coming they decided not to wait so long. My brother said he has to work Saturdays like I knew this, I had no idea he worked on Saturdays. So anyway, mom starts going through his stuff and threw out socks and underwear and is planning on donating his clothes (the man had some nice clothes, he was a big of a clothes hog and loved dressing up)to the Veterans. I am personally upset just about me not being there. There is nothing of value there, but some things have sentimental significance. Like dad's shoes, mom threw them out even before the funeral, I mean who would want old yucky holy shoes. Stuffgirl did, we had to pull them out of the trash for her. Mom said my Brother wanted some of the bluegrass tapes and some old records (records from the 50s really old but beat up not worth anything) and mom asked if there was anything I wanted. I replied how would I know, I am not there and I don't know what all he had! So I think I made her mad. But it is distressing to me. I know its he house and all that stuff is hers now. She wants it gone, like yesterday. But the day I am coming is only 2 months to the day he died, why cant she wait a bit? I know this all is harder on her than it is on me, she has to live there and see reminders everywhere. Logically I know this. Emotionally I don't want her to throw stuff out, at least without me there.

When does this get easier? I dreamed about him last night, I dreamed he was healthy and tan and younger and had woken up from the coma, and the only thing he was worried about was his health insurance. Go figure.

And now I find out Paris and Britney have broken up!!! Geez, just last week they were BFF! Now they aren't even on speaking terms! As if I don't have enough on my mind. *sigh*

Maybe this is my year after all....

Its a Friday tradition at my work that we order lunch and someone go get it (or have it delivered)and we all eat together and take a shorter lunch since most Fridays we close up early. Yesterday we chose Applebee's. The gal that went had collected the money and put the cash in separate envelopes. I gave her a $20 dollar bill, and I was paying for my helper too (she never has any money). I should have had maybe $2 back. Later, after eating delicious chicken fingers, I opened my envelope and there was my receipt and $23.23 in change. I was confused, I checked and every one else got the correct change. So I am KEEPING my ill gotten extra cash! Maybe I should go to Vegas this weekend while I am still on a luck streak huh?

Christmas presents....

Well its been a normal week, and I am tired. I spent my afternoon off getting my blood drawn and my B12 shot, going to the mall and the grocery store. Whew.

There was major drama today at work, the new boss is off for a few days and one gal felt slighted that she wasn't asked to do certain things and another gal was. A mild version of the whose in charge incident when Reagan was shot. There were words exchanged and angry talk but at the end of the day it seemed like the drama was over. I hate drama, I stayed as far away as I could but its a small office and its hard to avoid it completely. I am glad everything seemed to be sorted out. My new helper was hired on from the temp agency yesterday. Her work is awesome but she seems to thrive on the drama, she is very negative and comes over to my desk (she is ALWAYS at my desk) with all this negative talk and I try not to get involved in it. she is one of those people that seem constantly angry. I don't get that, life is short, why be angry all the time?

Anyway, I am posting pictures of my Christmas presents, and my anniversary present. It was all about music this year, the Canadian got me a Gigabeat, the toshiba version of an Ipod. I love it!! I listen to it at work every day! Then for Christmas I got Sirius radio for the car and the house. I cannot tell you how AWESOME it is to listen to decent radio! I love love love it!!!
I like Alt Nation, first Wave and Octane. Hubby loves HairNation blech. I haven't listened to all the stations yet, there are so many, I cant wait to explore. Take that sucky small town south radio!!! Oh the new bag, is it not cool??? I feel like a Hollywood it girl when I am carrying it! haha.

I am harboring a Killer in my house.

This the killer and her latest victim. She slowly and methodically kills dog toys (of Stuffies as I like to call them). She starts by silencing the squeaker. But that's not enough for her. Next she has to perform a "sqeakerectomy" to remove the offending squeaker. When that's out then the REAL fun begins, pulling out all the stuffing until its an empty husk and tossing the stuffing all over the house. My dogs got 11 new toys for Christmas. So far only 5 remain intact., and she is the only dog that's kills them so she has been very busy. No wonder she sleeps so soundly at night, she 's exhausted!

Back to work today
Heavy sighs all around the globe.......

Monday, January 01, 2007

Its 2007 bitches!!! My year my year my year!

I have been complaining last year was so bad for me and how 2007 things are gonna turn around but after thinking about it there were so many good things about 2006 too. My daughter graduated High School against all odds with her learning disorder. My son met Royce Gracie and is training to do fight in whatever that style of fighting is (LOL I know so much about it) and has won a bunch of bouts, whatevers. My Parents had a kick ass 50th wedding anniversary party, even if I was in the hospital and couldn't attend. I am so glad they had that. And the wicked witch evil boss from Hell quit which made my job go from hellish to a really nice place to work.

It was a bad year too, from my
Gamma treatments to my ongoing decreased ability to be mobile, to my blood clot and several hospital stays. Then Dad's cancer and stroke, and then his funeral.

But all in all I
don't have much to complain about, I have a husband who is the best ever (even if he drives me crazy sometimes), who has stuck with me even though at one point I told him to go find him a healthy woman. My dogs are all healthy, I have a nice house and all kinds of gadgets to amuse me. My kids are both healthy, what more could I ask for?

The best part of the year has been blogging. It helps me so much to write things out and when I started I found a whole community of
bloggers and made some friends along the way. I love reading other peoples blogs, and I love when I get comments on mine.

So While I am declaring 2007 as MY year I am
willing to share, lets all have a great year OK?
