UGHHHHH!!!!


I have missed reading everyone's blog immensely. I hate that my time is so limited. I feel out of touch with everyone ~pouts~!!
Work has been absolutely unbelievable. I thought with the arrival of the new priest finally things at work would calm down. W*R*O*N*G!!! The past two weeks have been so busy I have not had time to blog or email or anything from work. I need time with my online friends. Life at home has been equally as busy. My son started football practice which means 2.5 hours at the field every night. Last weekend we ran from Friday afternoon until Monday night with kids, parties, sleep overs all weekend and movies. I am hoping this weekend will be better spent cleaning, relaxing and hopefully having lots of catch up time on the computer.

I am also looking forward to catching up on some much needed sleep. I have not slept for weeks and I can not seem to get a good night's rest. Sleep has never been a friend of mine and on a good night I get about 4 hours sleep.


When I was young I never slept. I literally terrorized my house from the age of about one year old. I was able to get out of my crib and I was on the loose (I wrote about this in more detail on an earlier blog enter, click here if you want to read it.) Then as time progressed I never slept because I was always afraid my dad would hurt my mom. Every single night I would sit on the top step and listen to my dad yelling, degrading and humiliating my mom. I would wait until the level rose to an alarming rate and I would yell down mom I have a headache, stomach ache, bad dream ect... She would beg me to go to sleep and I would just sit there all night long until he finally passed out from the 1/5 of Vodka that he drank. I would never spend the night away from home because I always felt like I had to protect my mom. When I was 18 - 19 years old I worked two jobs and went to college. I can remember staying out all night long arriving home just in time to step into the shower and off to work 12 hours or go to school. It never affected me in the least. When my husband and I were first married if we were having an argument I would always say watch out remember I can stay up for days without sleep. He would laugh nervously and say yup you are the only person I know who can go days even weeks without sleep.
I guess old age is catching up with me because now it is affecting me. I feel sluggish in the morning. I actually wake up at 4:30am and I am ready to face the day but by 7:30ish I am ready to sleep. Then when I get home from work I feel as if I could take a nap. I make dinner then off to football practice and home again around 9. I sit down to get on the computer, I begin yawning immediately, my eyes are watering and I feel as if I can not stay awake. So I go to bed in hopes that this will be the night I finally sleep!! But alas, I lay there tossing and turning, becoming more frustrated as the minutes tick by. Then I put the television on and watch it until I finally fall asleep, only to wake up at 1:30 then 3, ughhhhhh.....

Everynight I have faith that this will be the night I get a good night's rest!

Please know I am thinking of all my wonderful friends and looking forward to catching up on your blogs as soon as it is humanly possible.

WISHING EVERYONE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

I stole this from XMichra and I thought it was me perfectly!

You come from the Ocean. You've always been drawn to the sea, the sound of the waves, the crystal blue water, near the sea is where you belong.

What Matters?


A man found a long stretch of beach upon which hundreds of starfish had been stranded by a great storm. He observed a little girl cupping the starfish in her hands, one by one and gently placing them back into the ocean.

The man asked the little girl:
" What does it matter?
You'll never save them all anyway."
The little girl smiled softly and simply replied: "
It matters to the ones I save."



The simple pleasures of life matter

A phone call from a friend
A comment on your blog
An email from someone special
Children laughing and singing

A child's innocence


A simple thank you


A job well done


Being appreciated for that job
A smile from a stranger
A wink, a nod, or a nudge
A quiet walk on the beach
Sand between your toes

A warm kiss from the sun

The stars shining bright in the sky

Friends Like You Matter to Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TC's Poem and Quizes from XMichra

Please stop by and see TC and Xmichra

TC has written a breathtaking post, he has an amazing way with words; click here to see his most recent post: Evil

Snatched from Xmichra; click here to see her awesome blog:

What Your Soul Really Looks Like

You are a warm hearted and open minded person. It's easy for you to forgive and forget.

You are a grounded person, but you also leave room for imagination and dreams. You feet may be on the ground, but you're head is in the clouds.

You believe that people see you for how you are, not how you look. But deep down, you know that's not exactly true.

Your near future is calm, relaxing, and pretty much what you want. And it's something you've been anticipating for a while now.

For you, falling in love is all about the adventure and uncertainty. You can only fall in love with someone who keeps you guessing.




Your Brain's Pattern

Your mind is a multi dimensional wonderland, with many layers.
You're the type that always has multiple streams of though going.
And you can keep these thoughts going at any time.
You're very likely to be engaged in deep thought - and deep conversation.


Your Power Level is: 68%

You're a very powerful person, and you know that all of your power comes from within.
Keep on doing what you're doing, and you'll reach your goals.

True Friends


Warning Warning Warning

You are entering a rant zone!!!


I have a long time friend. Well I am his friend when he has nothing better to do. We have been friends for sometime online. He is a great guy and I really enjoy spending time with him. Well the first time he had an online girlfriend our friendship fell by the waste side. Well she did not last long and he came back pretty quick. But then the second online girlfriend lasted much longer. I bet about a year and half and again our friendship ceased to exist. I was shocked when he contacted me when their relationship got a bit rocky and eventually ended. I could not believe it was him. But I was thrilled because I really do enjoy his friendship, he is fun.

I guess that was a few months ago and we talk on and off but not frequently. Well all of sudden no contact, no messages, no nothing and I thought hmmmmm.... So I messaged him and said have you met someone? He said yes about a week ago. Well I am not one to mince words so I said oh I guess you will be gone yet again just like with the other ones. He said no I will not!!! I did not respond and he said "I will PROVE YOU WRONG!!!" I said okay I hope you do.

Guess what?? I have not heard from him since and that was about 2 weeks ago.



What would you do?

My Space Horrors

As you all know I have two teenagers, arggggghhhhhhh 13yr old boy and 14 yr old girl. I honestly believe these children are trying to put me in a home. I have started packing because I think they are going to win. Please just make the room padded with an internet connection.

I am a PROUD Leo! I absolutely adore lions. I think they are so beautiful and strong. So I always joke around and say the kids are my lion cubs. My husband always says they are my ducklings because when they were little I trained them to stay right with me at all times. So anywhere I would go I always had them in tow. The funny thing is if we are in the mall or in a crowd they still follow me the same way but shhhhh do not tell them. Okay POPS a Ritalin....

Back on Subject!!!

I have been looking for my children's My Space for a couple weeks or so. Well I found it yesterday. Let me back a bit first. I am very concerned over the My Space with all these internet predators. Sooooooooooo I agreed to the my space with rules. No pictures, No names, No location, No team names, no nothing!!!! Everytime there is a show on about internet predators I sit with them so they can see it, understand it and ask questions about it. I know for a fact that I have been completely clear about this. As I am sure you can tell if you have been reading my blog for any amount of time; there is very little grey in my life, it is black or white, yes or no and very few maybes... So I know I have been completely clear, black and white no questions about this my space and online activities.

So now I am reading my daughter's my space. She has her picture, her full name, where she lives, her cheerleading team's names, her school, her grade, her class schedule for next year, YES you read that right her CLASS SCHEDULE so any maniac can locate her easily. At this point things go a bit blurry, but I flew into a blind rage. Instead of telling her I found her my space, I told her someone called me who had seen it and said she had too much information on her My Space. This is what happened next:










The End

Thank you ~takes a bow~Thank you

Please hold your applause; just throw money
