a little reunion

So I took a girl that I work with to the block last night and we watched a few girls strip. We were out for about 3 hours and I saw some people from the past. Some that look good and some that look "not so good" there was a fight between the girls late last night as we were leaving the club.

We first went to a club where I knew the bartender. She use to travel with me and watch my daughter while I was dancing in other states and now she is bartending in a club. She has 2 kids now. The last time I saw her she was 17 and now she is 25....time goes by way to fast. She is the one that introduced me to my husband almost 8 years ago. It's crazy to because I watch the girls on you-tube and a lot of those girls can really dance on a pole but there are not a lot of girls who can dance like that at a's all a hustle game but if they could dance it would make the hustle game a little easier!

The next club we went to was a 2 part club.....its set up weird and in the last 10 years it has been 4 different clubs. The club always seems to make money but never stays open for long. This time the upstairs is used mostly as a "black girl" club the girls can dance and they work their ass off to make the money that they do make but I think that it is sad and that they play up to the young black boys to much and work to hard for a dollar.....there are better clubs to make money and those "young hoppers" are not trying to ease up on that money. I just think that shaking your ass in front of a mans face for over 3 min is to much attention for one man to just get one or two dollars...maybe its just me! All the girls seems to be getting along OK in the upstairs part of the club but I was tired of watching them have to beg for tips so we left to go downstairs.

The bad part about going downstairs is that you have to leave the club and was not like that a few years ago but I guess they want to make people feel like they are going into a different club. At this club we were told to sit at the front of the club but someone else told me that a bartender that I know was at the back of the club so that we me and my girl started to walk. We found two seats and sat down and some "dancer" started to run her mouth. I guess some guy bought her a drink and she was upset that me and my friend (customers) took her seat when she was away (maybe buying drugs). Oh well, she really got upset when my girlfriend did a guest set on her time and stole the stage. I love it!

This was my was yours? I have to go practice on my stripper pole now....see you later!

hi, my name is, my name is.....

ok, did you think that the stripper exercise people took me away to a galaxy far...far.....away? That's what I would have thought because I have been gone for so long....I have still been around kind of. I did go and I loved the idea of working out like that again but I hate someone telling me how to dance. Dance is about expression and how can you express yourself when someone is telling you how to move and when to move that way? I decided to but a pole for myself so I still have a few passes left and I quit the gym (that was the agreement between me and my husband) and we put a pole up in the extra bedroom. I love it and he is happy also. For anyone that had been reading this for awhile then you will know that I have been trying to get him to buy one for me for a few years and I finally got my way ;)

I will follow up with all of you into he next day or two to see what I have been missing...once again...I am such a bad blogger....oh, for those who care...James now owes me over 15,000 in child support and he is on work release from what I understand but I have not seen my money yet ;(

I can't believe that I found a place the does stripper aerobics. I am so excited. What is even more cool about the whole thing is that it is really close to me. Right between work and home and I only work about 10 min from the house so as you can see this is close! I was looking for something else online and came across a message board where they were talking about lucky for me hu??? So, they have a free intro class and I will be there this weekend and then I will buy a pass. I already know its a good workout. They don't have to sell me on that part!

I never thought that they would have a place like that around here but I am glad that I found it. I can't wait to use that pole....I know that I will hurt for days works your whole body. Well I guess I will have to tell you more about after my first intro class this weekend ;)

What I Want Wednesday 1/31/07

I love this bag from can find the link on my sidebar with all my other online shopping links. The bag is cute...It's a little pricey for me right now at $119.00 but still not to bad.
I think I will keep and eye on the price though and get it if the price comes down some. Besides I do get my bonus from work in a month and that would be a good present to myself for all my hard work ;)

I have been doing a lot of online shopping lately but nothing is really catching my eye. I'm sorry....I have also been working overtime at work to catch up on some bills so that we can get everything together and maybe move from this neighborhood. We went driving yesterday and I saw this house that has my attention. Its a very old house built back in the 1800's but has an addition and lots of yard. I hope that is stays on the market for a little while and they cut the price down a bit. We are going to do some investigation work on the house but it's really nice from what I have seen.

Anyway, I do not have much else to post today. I have more e-mails to go through and some online browsing to do and then I have to get ready for work....I am working 7 hours of overtime today. I might take off on Sunday to watch the superbowl. It tradition and I never miss one so I might do that! Also I want to say that I have posted more than once a week this month...I think this is a total of 6 to 7 post...Go Dawn!!!! I should have some cheerleaders doing a dance for me right about now.

If you want to pay along with me on what I want Wednesday then please post something that you have found online and let me know so we can online shop together!

The title says it all folks......that is what I plan on doing today and for most of the day tomorrow. I have been working some overtime so that I can make some extra money to pay off any bills that are laying around and so that we can start to make double payments on the cars. I have not really had time to myself lately. I need to go out to get my taxed done today and I am afraid of how that will go....then we are gonna look at some property and get some real estate books to look over. It should be a pretty good day though.


Anna went to school mad at me though. My brother gave her a cell phone that he had that can only make an emergency 911 call. I told her to leave the cell phone here because she wanted to take it to school and she got mad about that. I am sorry, I do not think that she needs a phone. She is 10 years old. She is at school or with me or my husband all the time...we are not a 2 working household and someone is always with her....there is no reason for her to have a cell phone. Besides, I am her mother and I see how she uses the house phone....NO WAY! I think that every circumstance is different and as long as your educated then a cell phone for your child can be ok, but....not in my case! It's a waste of money on her. Maybe when I get that big fat child support check I am waiting on we can get her that cell phone she wants..with all the "bells and whistles".


I guess I am going to spend the day catching up on cleaning and maybe doing some online shopping. I want to start "What I Want Wednesday" again so that I can post what I found that I love the most for you. Ok, I am gonna end this might die when you see I have posted so close to the date of my last post...don't want ya'll to think I am spoiling you ;)

I am missing something

I feel like I am missing something. We are talking about the possibility of moving and I am ready for it. I am just not happy here. The schools are not great. The people are rude. I want some property and more space in the house and I just want more peace and we just don't have that now.

I will be working lots.....lots....lots of over time this year to get all my bills in order and plenty of money saved so that we can do what we need to in order to move and have money to buy what ever we may need to. I want to move by the time that Anna moved to Middle school and make that the last move EVER!!!!

Well, that is the most recent update....I will talk to ya'll later!

P.S. ~ James is over $14, 500 in child support, it just keeps adding up!

how can ya tell

well, how can I tell that I don't post much any more.....let me count the ways....

1) when there are 3 months worth of post on a page that should say that I do not post much.

2) when people visit once a month and post to say "Hey, where are you" that is also a sign

3) when I forget my login to post...That's major sign!

here is what I realized this morning...well, it really started this week. Thanks to a friend of mine...I belong to a weight loss group..not really sure who I belong to a group I have been with this group for almost a year...I have about 25lbs to lose (I know it is not that much compared to what most people in this group have to lose). Anyways, I feel like the outcast of the group, most of the people in the group are very church going people and older then myself. I have always felt like people who are very "church going" are very critical of other people and I do not understand why??? I do not go to church but I am catholic and stopped going to church when I was in middle school when my parents stopped going.

Anyways, I don't know if it is just me but I so not think that people are as nice as they should be and I think that people are really stuck up. In my neighborhood people think that they are better then everyone else. I work a late shift at work by choice not because I have to but because I want to. My husband can stay at home with my daughter and we live very well. I do not have to want for anything. Because Anna does not like Dancing and Soccer she is the outcast and the parents in this town treat her this way. She just turned 10 this week and she wanted to have a birthday party and all the parents made sure to make me know in no uncertain terms that "all the little girls would be busy" really one mother called to inform me for all the other mothers!

Anna was crushed at first but then I took her and her "boyfriend" out for her birthday and now she is ok...that made all the little girls inher school mad because they like that little boy and now they are trying to make Anna break up with him and Anna will not go for it....she knows that they are just trying to make her mad.

It upsets me to see her going through this. I know that they treat Anna like the outcast also because I am such a young mother. Most of the parent in her school had their children when they were in their 30's and I had Anna when I was 18.
