A Million Little Pieces by James Frey



I have started reading A Million Little Pieces by James Frey. WOW WEEEEEEEEE What an amazing book!!! Oh my it takes my breath away. It is slow reading for me because it is emotionally draining as I read it. So I am reading a little bit at a time. James also has a book My Friend Leonard which I actually started reading first but I want to finish A Million Little Pieces first before moving onto My Friend Leonard. I just wanted to share these amazing books with my friends.

This is very funny because I think it describes me how I am feeling the past few days, but not how I am normally. I wonder if the results change depending on your mood.

I Miss You Very Much!!!!!!!!



Curses Wilma because I miss my friend Richard so very much. He always made a comment on every entry of my blog, it made me feel like I was special enough that he never missed a post. I miss reading his blog immensely; his wit, his compassion, his sense of humor, his thoughts and his HNT pics hubba hubba(2 have passed). He is a truly amazing human being. I prayed so hard that Wilma would spare his area and he would be safe. God answered; Richard is safe and his home is still standing!! Thank You God!! But I did not pray for his electricity, ugghhh..... I will know for next time but for now I am very lonely without him. My heart is breaking for him, (and the other 6 million people also) because I can not imagine being without electricity for this long. Cut off from my blog,ugghh *chuckles*... But of course Richard being the most awesome person that he is, he is just taking it in stride. Cell phones are great by the way!!!!!!! Without that contact I would have been going nuts because I would not have known this very special person was safe.

I clicked on one of my very favorite blogs today and it is gone. I am very saddened by this and I hope that
Cliff will return to blogging or that this was just a goof at blogland. If you are gone Cliff I will miss you and your blog immensely!!

How Much is Your Blog Worth?


My blog is worth $2,822.70.
How much is your blog worth?

UNDEFEATED 9 and 0


Oh YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

We finished our season last night and we are the first team in our league to ever be undefeated. Now off to the playoffs. Last night was a fantastic game 21 to 0. It was COLDDDDDDDDDDDDD we were all under blankets screaming and cheering for our boys. Of course my boy was a superstar. chuckles Okay well he is always a superstar in my eyes. But for a kid who tried baseball and hated it. He tried wrestling and mom hated it because it was so unorganized He tried lacrosse and we both hated it. He tried band, the drums ugghhhh but did not want to practice just wanted to be great. He has definitely found his nitch in life. This boy rocks at football!!!!!!!!! He is going to be something really special. This is only his second year playing and I wish he would have had an interest in football when he was younger but I guess he was too busy finding his nitch. Oh well I hope he will always have great coaches to teach him. I am always proud of my son and daughter, they are great kids even though I complain. I know they could be so much worse. As I look down the street and see the home of a pregnant 14 year old who's mother is excited about the new baby. Help me here am I crazy but if my girl was pregnant I do not know what I would do or where I would turn but excited is not one of the emotions I would be feeling. My heart breaks for this little girl. Because regardless of anything she is a little girl. I remember one time my daughter and her hooked up. She rode her bike down to play with my daughter a few years ago when they first moved in. Well my daughter was not allowed off the street and was still playing with Barbies. This girl could ride her bike anywhere she wished. Needless to say my daughter held her interest for less than a week. When she first arrived at our house my husband was like who the hell is that? I replied a girl from our daughter's class. He looked at me quite puzzled and said are you sure? She looks 10 years older. Well my daughter just turned fourteen a few weeks ago. Three years ago we were at the Island carnival (You know one of those little traveling carnivals) Well my children wanted to go on this one ride, as we are walking over I see a girl with the shortest shorts I have ever seen, her ass is all hanging out, she is kind of chunky so her belly is hanging out and she has this white tight shirt on that you could see her bra and boobs. I was thinking oh my this is great because I had my son. Well we get in line and I see that the girl has her bellybutton pierced she turns around and says hey to my daughter. My jaw hits the ground, I look at my daughter WHO IS THAT? She said Brandy I almost feel over. I said she has her belly button pierced?? My girl said mom she had that done in 5th grade. Okay what the hell am I talking about... I started talking about my superstar son and ended up on a poor pregnant child. Pops a ritalin.... Well I will keep you all informed during the playoffs. Winks to Lori because I know she cares about my son's football!

Word Verification for the Handicapped

















I must really suck at this word verification because 75% of the time I have to do it twice. What I love is when I get the second word verification it is so much easier to decipher. It is like the word verification is mocking me. The first verification has lots of letters, squiggled, leaning all different ways and lines through it. When I get the second verification it is four or five letters, not leaning, no lines just straight forward. I feel like the word verification is saying here you go idiot try this one.

Why Women Bitch

From Showers and Sunflower's Blog

















One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes inside each of us. The battle is between two "wolves" that we have inside.The first is Evil. It's anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilty, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.The second is Good. It's joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.The grandson, looking puzzled looked at his grandfather and asked, "Which wolf wins?"To which the grandfather replied, "The one you feed."

UNDEFEATED 8 and 0






















WOW what a game....14 to zip!! Football weather, muddy, wet and cold!! I really hate the close games. I was so nervous and thrilled when the game was finally over.

My son ROCKED!!! He had a few amazing plays, a bunch of awesome plays and even more great plays. Hehehe I am not prejudice, my boy truly rocks... laughs!!!! Well he is very good and I am very proud of him. This game was much closer than the last game so he played much more. As I mentioned previously he is on the 1st string, offense, 1st string defense and part of the 3rd string when they go out. The referees SUCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!! If they were not paid off before the game, I hope they at least got paid off after the game because they definitely compromised their self respect and integrity today. I would think they left the game quite ashamed and without the ability to look at themselves in the mirror.

Well we have one last game in the regular season, our last game is against a team we played earlier in the season. They are such a dirty team, I already blogged about this team click here if you are interested in seeing the post. I truly hope these boys can beat this team again and finish the season undefeated. It will be the first team in our league that ever finished undefeated.

Watching for Wilma














Okay I must admit the Flintstones is my most favorite cartoon ever!! I think Wilma is not a good name for a hurricane. Poor Mrs. Flintstone getting a bad rep here. All joking aside, my prayers are with everyone that Wilma's wrath visits. I am watching Wilma nervously anticipating her path and worrying about my loved ones in the path of this mighty hurricane.

EX Friend














Well... I had the unfortunate experience of running into my EX best friend in a chat room today. Well she stayed briefly and moved on, of course she has no clue it is me. My skin crawled just seeing her name. I do not understand how I can love someone one day and because of a betrayal I can hate her with such a great passion the next day. It makes me upset with myself because I do not wish her to have such power over me. I have forgiven her because she is human, but as for forgetting, never... The strange thing is that knowing me as I do, I would think I would love to have a great debate that escalates to an argument and then crawls into something I will be greatly ashamed of later. But... I do not even wish to talk to her. I do not wish to waste my breathe on her. chuckles as I know you are thinking I am wasting blog space on her. It just has me thinking of how close love and hate can be in the spectrum of life.

A New Favorite Song

My new favorite song is Doesnt Remind Me by Audioslave... I am giving Green day's Holiday and When September Ends a rest, much to the happiness of my children. I am horrible because when I like a song I can listen to it over and over again for months on end. They get very upset when I find a song I really love, it is like I can not get enough of the song. Well here are the lyrics and the video is beyond awesome!!!!!!!! I am a very visual person, I enjoy the music videos and sometimes for me that can make or break a song.















AUDIOSLAVE LYRICS
"Doesn't Remind Me"
I walk the streets of Japan till I get lost
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
With a graveyard tan carrying a cross
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like studying faces in a parking lot
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like driving backwards in the fog
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
[Chorus]The things that I've loved the things that I've lost
The things I've held sacred that I've dropped
I won't lie no more you can bet
I don't want to learn what I'll need to forget
I like gypsy moths and radio talk
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like gospel music and canned applause
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like colorful clothing in the sun
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I ilke hammering nails and speaking in tongues
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
[Chorus]The things that I've loved the things that I've lost
The things I've held sacred that I've dropped
I won't lie no more you can betI don't want to learn what I'll need to forget
Bend and shape me
I love the way you are
Slow and sweetly
Like never beforeCalm and sleeping
We won't stir up the past
So descretely
We won't look back
[Chorus]The things that I've loved the things that I've lost
The things I've held sacred that I've dropped
I won't lie no more you can bet
I don't want to learn what I'll need to forget
I like throwing my voice and breaking guitars
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
I like playing in the sand what's mine is ours
If it doesn't remind me of anything

Tracking George










I received a dollar bill that had information stamped on it about Wheres George a few months ago. Well I did not think much of it and I spent it without a second thought. Well I received another one last night. I decided what the heck and went to the website http://www.wheresgeorge.com/ and registered my dollar. Well... the dollar was first registered in Owings, Maryland which is Southern Maryland. Then it was registered in Stevensville, MD by a kid who's mother gave it to him/her for lunch money but they decided to bring it home and do the web page. Then my tracking entry was third. I am kind of excited to see where it goes and ends up. I hope people will participate but I think they will just spend it. hehe.. Well I spent the dollar this morning and wished it well on its journey. ~chuckles~ So hopefully now I will have a new obsession I can check where my dollar is instead of checking if anyone has commented on my blog. LAUGHS!!!

Separated at Birth??



















When my mom was pregnant with me she was HUGE!! I was due mid august and the doctor was becoming worried. He told my mom that the baby was so big he would have to induce her labor two weeks early because she would never be able to delivery me if I continued to bake, hehe. He continued to tell her I was at least 10lbs and they would induce her the next day. Well when I graced this world and took my first breath, the doctor told my mother that she had a little peanut and I barely weighed 5lbs. She then turned to the doctor and said you better check for another baby then. With that they knocked her out again and the last thing she remembers is looking over and the nurse putting me in a hospital cradle, draped a hospital blanket or sheet over the cradle so she could not see me and rolled the baby out of the room. With that they had called my dad into the conference room to tell him of the birth. He sat for hours in the room and no one came to him. His mind wandered, he imagined that both of us were dead. He could not understand why he was left sitting for hours. Then my mom came to still on the hospital bed, feet in the stirrups, completely naked with no covers on her. She yelled for the nurse and the nurse told her to stop her yelling and my mom said you cover me right now. Well my mom and dad shared their horror stories; Dad of his time waiting and waiting not knowing what was happening, and my mom of waking up naked on the table. Well they brought me home and I was so small that I did not fit in regular clothes. My mom dressed me in doll clothes. I never slept and I barely ate. My mom had to feed me every hour and she could barely get .5 ounce of formula into me. I cried a lot as a newborn. My mom was so run down because I never slept and feeding me every hour was taking it's toll. Of course my dad was too busy chasing women to help her take care of me. I never slept at night even as a toddler. My mother use to say the devil breathed life into me when I was one year old. I was so bad. I was able to flip out of my crib when I was a little over a year. They never understood how I could do it until my mom saw me one day when I was a bit older. I would hold onto the rail and begin jumping until it flipped me out of the crib. Then I was on the loose. I took great enjoyment in terrorizing my house at night when everyone else was sleeping. Turning on every light in the house was one of my favorite things to do. But my most favorite thing to do was to take my older brother (3.5 years older) out of his PJs, I would take his sheet, his fitted sheet, coverlet, and pillow case off his bed as well. He would wake up in the morning in his underwear with no pjs and no covers. Then after terrorizing the house anyway I could I would find the smallest place to hide in and fall asleep. Normally a cubby in my dad's closet. Well imagine the fear the first few times my mom woke up to every light in the house on and her 2 year old gone. Well needless to say my mom was able to make it through those days. I was an escape artist as well... They had to put locks on the tops of the doors because I would just leave from 2 years old on. I could still get out of the house, even with the locks and the neighborhood kept watch for me. If they saw me, the phone calls would begin, shes rounding the horseshoe. My mom would come find me, yell where are you going? I would say either I am going to see Joyce (my mom's friend) or I would say I was looking for someone, she would say who and I would say I do not know. I did have a great trick when I was little and I would entertain my brother and his friends. Remember the highback couches years ago.... ugghhhh dates myself okay okay I am 38 years old!!! well I would jump off the top of the couch and land on my tip toes on the concrete floor in our basement. My brother would love to gross his friends out with that trick. Alright back to my story. As I got older my mom noticed I could never leave the house one time. I always returned for something that I thought I forgot or I thought I was missing something. She thought it was an odd trait for a child in kindergarten to have such concerns. Well this continued to ummm the present. I still can not leave my house one time. I always go back to make sure the door is locked, the trash is up from the dog or the windows shut. It is maddening sometimes but it is a part of my life and I accept that. Well.... my mom always wondered about my low birth weight and how strangely I acted as a child but never really knew what it could be just figured I was odd. Until the day she was watching a television show on triplets separated at birth. The mother did not know she was having triplets because of course back then there was no sonograms. Well the mother was expecting one baby so when she had twins or triplets, the corrupt doctors and nurses would sell the other baby on the black market. That is what happened to the triplets, they sold two of them to different homes on the black market. Well a white healthy baby on the black market is worth a lot of money. They all had the same characteristics that I had growing up. They also did not thrive in the beginning of their lives, did not sleep and also had the feeling of something missing. My mother watched in awe as they told their stories. She had a sinking feeling when she remembered how they draped something over my cradle and ushered the cradle quickly out of the room, how when she asked the doctor to look for another baby she was immediately put back to sleep, also waking up naked in a room all alone. This has always bothered my mom and it bothers me too because I think it would explain so much in my life but unfortunately there is no paper trail. The only reason the triplets found each other is two of them went to the same college and classmates kept saying to both of them how much they look like the other one. They finally met and realized they had the same birthday and one was adopted. A few years later someone kept telling this kid at a convenience store how much he looked like a guy in her class. Finally she told the boy in her class and he rushed over to meet the boy at the store and found that the twins were triplets. They said they wondered if they were quadruplets and that is why they were on the show. Because the triplets were identical and wondered if there was 4 instead of 3.

Well that is my childhood story.

Leo and Proud














I have been doing some retrospective thinking on this dark gloomy day. Thinking about mistakes I have made in the past, lost friends, and regrets for things I have done. I try not to regret anything because I hope I am always doing my best when I make the decision I make, normally it is because it feels right. Sometimes it feels right for that moment in time, later however is another story. Well as I reflect I have been peeking at blogs, surfing the internet and I thought hmm let me check my horoscope. I never check my horoscope although I believe in astrology because it always seems to be right on the money and everyone always says I am a typical leo. Well, I wonder how on the money my horoscope is today, I hope it is wrong!! As far as me being a typical Leo, I actually met a man online who was from Georgia. He was quite the character; charming and evil wrapped up into a heavenly good looking southern gentleman. I met him while playing Literati (Online Scrabble through yahoo). He was not a good loser and I am an excellent Literati player. I rarely lose because I use to play all the time. Well the first game I beat him quickly and unmercifully, he was not happy. So we played a second a game, as the second game began, my first word was worth 76 points, I used all my letters. He said to me "Damn Leos" I said what? He said oh gimme a break young lady I know you are a leo, I can always tell a leo they drive me nuts. I laughed so hard so we continued playing. Oh my he would take forever to make a word, his need to win was hysterical to me. I am not competitive in the least and I do not mind losing at games, I figure you win some and you lose some. Well the second game took us hours. I was actually reading a book between him forming words because it took him so long. Midway through the game he said to me, not only are you a leo you are an Adult child of an alcoholic. I was like huh? Okay brother this is so NOT funny.... He kept saying I am not your brother. I was laughing so hard. He said to me you do not realize but everything about you screams leo and adult child of an alcoholic. Well we played a few more times on different days but his need to win was so annoying that I finally had to tell him no more games. Every game we played lasted hours. I did tell him if he ever wanted to play time limit Literati I would be thrilled to play and he said no way. That was years ago and I never saw him again.

My Horoscope for today:

Quickie:
Don't be disappointed if a new person turns out to be less than you'd hoped.


Overview:
Finally, others seem to be demonstrating the type of charm and civility you were born with a talent for -- and just in the nick of time, too. We can all use a dose of it now. And it'll be a lot more fun to be around them now, too.

Leo! About Your Sign...
The Leo type is the most dominant, spontaneously creative and extrovert of all the zodiacal characters. In grandeur of manner, splendor of bearing and magnanimity of personality, they are the monarch's among humans as the lion is king of beasts. They are ambitious, courageous, dominant, strong willed, positive, independent, self-confident there is no such a word as doubt in their vocabularies, and they are self-controlled. Born leaders, either in support of, or in revolt against, the status quo. They are at their most effective when in a position of command, their personal magnetism and innate courtesy of mind bringing out the best of loyalty from subordinates. They are uncomplicated, knowing exactly what they want and using all their energies, creativeness and resolution to get it, as well as being certain that they will get whatever they are after. Their followers know where they are with Leonians. Leonians think and act bigger than others would normally dare; the ambitiousness of their schemes and idealism sometimes daunt their followers, their practical hardheadedness and ability to go straight to the heart of any problem reassures those who depend on them. If Leonians meet with setbacks they thrive on the adversity. On the whole they are powers for good, for they are strongly idealistic, humane, and beneficent. They have powerful intelligence and are of a broad philosophical, sometimes religious, turn of mind. Those who are devout may become very obstinate in upholding traditional beliefs and will cling tenaciously, but with complete sincerity, to practices and doctrines which liberal thinkers regard as absurdly out-of-date. These will be found as the 'lions' of industries, and in the forefront of the cutting edge of technologies.


Their faults can be as large in scale as their virtues, and an excessively negative Leonian can be one of the most unpleasant human beings imaginable, displaying extreme arrogance, autocratic pride, haughtiness, and excessive hastiness of temper. If jealously suspicious of rivals, they will not hesitate to use cunning, lies and trickery to discredit them. Self-centeredness, greed for flattery, boastfulness, and bombast, pomposity, snobbish superiority, and overbearing, and intolerant disdain of underlings; to whom they will nevertheless delegate the carrying out of minor details in their grandiose schemes, and from whom they are not above borrowing immoderately if an occasion necessitates it. Any of these can be characteristic of Leo. Add to them a passion for luxury, a lust for power, unlimited sexual lust, and emotional indulgence, and a character emerges that no one would want to know either in public life or private. But their pride may go before a fall, as uncontrolled impetuosity is likely to bring them low. Fortunately it is rare that a Leo is so undisciplined as to give way thoroughly to this list of vices, and their tendencies to them are usually balanced by an innate wisdom. Those who are afflicted with them also have the intelligence it takes to consciously and actively overcome them.
In professional life they do well at any vocation at which there is room at the top. As politicians they are content with nothing less than a powerful position in government. In business they may be the chairman of their company's board, or at least directors or managers. They are excellent organizers and overseers, often laying the groundwork for new projects. If from the artisan ranks of society they will aspire to become the boss, partly because they are ambitious by nature, partly because they dislike manual labor, preferring to take charge of others doing it. If artistic, Leos can become stars of stage or screen (their bent is serious rather than light drama), maestros as musicians where they will gravitate toward the grand instruments or activities, such as the organ or conducting of orchestras and as painters; anything grand in conception and scale appeals to them. Leo women make exceptionally good welfare workers.

In his or her relations with others the Leo type is open, sincere, genuine and trusting. Outgoing, spontaneously warm hearted and plain spoken, though never lacking in kindliness, Leos are more disillusioned than the average if let down by those they trust. They are not good judges of character and are inclined to favoritism and an exaggerated faith in their followers which too often ends in disappointment. They have a strong sex drive and are so attracted to the opposite sex that they find it hard to be constant; they can be so intensely sexual as to become dissolute. They may have numerous love affairs for their love of pleasure and beauty is liable to drive them from one attractive partner to another. They are very much inclined to deceive. Their marriages may fail for the same reason, yet they are sincere and generous to their lovers while love lasts, and will remain attached to their homes so long as it is run for their benefit. They demand service but are incapable of giving it.


Acckkk I am not so sure I am a typical Leo

STILL UNDEFEATED!!! and WET!!! VERY WET!!!!!!















Well the rain I was waiting for all day finally appeared. Two minutes after my son's team started playing. When I say rain I really mean torrential downpours. Oh boy we were soaked and dripping. It was like hurricane rain, you know what I mean horizonal rain, the rain was not coming down, it was raining from East to West ugghhhhh...... The worst kind of rain. But.... on the other hand WE WON YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 13 to 0 yippppeeeeeeee!!! We are now 6 and 0 and the team we beat is 4 and 2. Well I am still drenched but happy!!!

Mother Nature Does Have a Sense of Humor





















This is the rain event I have been so looking forward to, I have placed a white circle around where I live and an arrow pointing to it. Not one drop of rain has fallen. I can not believe it is actually raining around me. Okay Mother Nature this is so NOT funny!! I am waiting for the rain.

Rain, Rain and More Rain














YEAHHHHHHH..... We are supposed to have a rain event this weekend. It is suppose to start raining today and continue through Sunday and I am thrilled. I love the rain. It engages my senses and awakens me. I love how the rain cleanses the outside; washing away all the dirt, dust, grass clippings and leaves. It all just washes away and everything seems so much more fresh and clean. The rain feeds the earth and animals. I love to listen to the rain as it beats a rythmic melody. I love the smell of the earth after a soaking rain, so fresh and clean.



I think the ultimate experience for me would be to have the opportunity to stand, sit and lay outside on a warm spring evening completely naked as the rain caresses every single inch of me.

Homecoming Weekend

Homecoming Weekend

Well thank You God, I made it through Homecoming weekend. My daughter going to her first football game and parade with her friends. (I did send my son with his friend and friend's father, was that cheating a bit? nahhh) She went to her first highschool dance. Now I have my angel home and I am so happy this God forsaken weekend is over!!!!! I arrived at the dance about 20 minutes early to pick up my daughter. I was so very tempted to peek in but I thought if she saw me she would kill me. My priest is the Police chaplain and attends all the dances. So he was patroling outside and came over to the car. He and I talked for 20 minutes and I was very relieved because he took my opportunity away to peek. I am sure if I sat their alone for 20 minutes I would have talked myself into peeking into the dance. Father and I were talking about how some of the kids dressed. You should have seen some of these dresses. They looked as if they should have been walking the street instead of going to a dance.
