this is my "real post"

OK so it will not be that great of a post but I have been neglecting you lately. Let me explain....sorry I have no good excuse but who cares? I am here now!

I have been updating my blogroll and I also have added some cool places to shop online to my "walk into my closet"section. I still have some more updating to do but I have started. For those of you who are wondering....yes I am burned from the sun yesterday and it hurts!

I still have cleaning to do do when my vacation starts next weekend I can just lounge around in my PJ's all day and do nothing. I love vacation time! If you really want to know the truth I will be most likley be school shopping and working out a lot.

My mind is off in la la land and I can not think of anything to write about....I want to end this now so I can find some more sites to go shopping on. If you have a favorite online clothing site that you love please give me the information. I have money this week and it is burning a hole in my pocket.

I have a secret

I will only tell you about this if you promise not to laugh at me. Do you promise???

OK......I can not swim. Anna taught me how to float 3 years ago. She is the only person that I trust. How can you not trust a 5 year old who says...."it is ok mom, I have you. I won't let you go."

I mean really how could you not trust a child like that. Hey, it worked because I can float now. She must have done something right.

I went to a co-workers house today to sit around her pool and I am all red from the sun. I should have know better.....I can feel all the heat from my body. I will really feel the pain tomorrow. I will write a real post tomorrow I promise!

this was my day......

Wednesday, July 27, 2005


I hate all this heat. It is to hot for me do anything. My car has no air and I can not drive to the gym. I guess that is ok though....I have weights at the house and today is my lifting weights day. I really want the house to be totally clean before my vacation starts next weekend. We are not really going to go anywhere so I want my time at home to be peaceful and relaxing and clean!

I guess the next week and a half will be full of me cleaning out each room one by one. I also have to start getting Anna ready for school because school starts in a month.

Work is going ok for right now. I have a desk and I am getting a lot done...I am just not going to get the credit for it. Not to much I can do about that though. This is the time of the year that they start to let go of people to cut payroll. They got rid of 3 girls yesterday and there is more to come. It is nothing new it happens every year....twice a year.

I have so much to do so I will get back on here later.

I am one lucky b*$#@

I was on my way home for lunch today and there is a place on the way home that everyone slows down for because it is a hill so most cars loose their speed and cause the other cars so slow down. I thought that we were slowing down because of the hill. I was about 2 car lengths away from an SUV when I realized that the car in from of the SUV slammed on his brakes so he would not hit a........squirrel.

I am all for NOT killing animals but......If it is my life or the animals you better believe that I choose my life. Why would people be so stupid and come to a complete stop like that? I was lucky and slammed on my breaks and moved to the side of the road because if I did not then my car would be damaged beyond repair and I would be in the hospital for sure. My car did not come to a complete stop until the middle of my back car door was equal to the SUV's back bumper.

It scared the crap outta me! Some people are so stupid! Why would you choose an animal life over a human life? What do you think is going to hurt you more......running over a squirrel or having a large SUV hit your dumb ass? It is just pure stupidity! The dumb ass who was driving was in a geo metro (very small car) and he was in his late 30's/early 40's and he was alone in the car.......WHY????? Why was he so stupid?

OK I am done with my rant for the day.

more shopping to come...

I still have to go out to do more shopping but this is what I have bought thus far......
Image hosted by Photobucket.comI love it...I love the little see through jacket. It is simple and it will not be to hot to wear tomorrow.

Cute top...yes I know! But take a closer look...I do not need to buy any jewelry see
It has some ties around my sexy! Image hosted by

Look at my shoesImage hosted by

I know, they are sooo cute! Now all I have to do is buy a pair of pants to go with the top. I also have to buy a card and wrapping paper for the gift I got them. I know this is bad but I only spent $3.00 on the gift for them...I will post a picture of that later. It is a crystal vase and I got it from HECHT'S and there was a major sale going on. It was $30.00 but with some smart shopping I got it for $3.15. Am I good or what?

So what do you think? Nice outfit....minus the pants:-)

Wednesday, July 20, 2005


I am sitting here waiting for the energy to go to the gym. I will get there today I am just not sure when. I want to thanks those of you who told me how much you love me....there were not many of you but that is ok because I love those who love me back! I have everything I need for the wedding except for a pair of pants....I am not sure what type of pants I am going to go with yet but I love the top I bought. I will get a picture and post it sometime next week.

Work is stressful but when is it not? I am dealing with it until something better comes along. I am still waiting on my raise that is a month overdue and I am sure I will not hear anything about it for another month. Oh well, that is nothing new for them. This happens every year.

I have been so not really bust I just don't want to be that the same as being busy? I really don't want to have chicken and salad for dinner but I am really making progress with the whole weight loss issue so I do not want to screw it all up. I have to look good because I am getting married in November. Oh let me show you a picture of a top I want to get...Image hosted by

I found this today and it was funny....I needed a good laugh.







Funny hu? I thought so.

Monday, July 18, 2005


I am sooo cute today! I have to go shopping now....I will be back later.....try not to miss me to much! While I am gone you can tell me how much you love me and let me know what a wonderful person I am.

my baby is back

Anna just got home but I wanted to show off something special that she bought for me. The picture is a little fuzzy but I think you get the point:)
Image hosted by
See, she is sooo sweet. I love Betty Boop! I have the ring on my finger now. She also bought me and Greg a shot glass because we collect them. She also brought home a bag of sea shells that she found on the beach. Girlfriend is so tanned. She had a blast. I am going to go through her suitcase and put her stuff away. I also have a picture of Paul's tattoo to share with you. I think it looks pretty good.

The weather is awful! I hate all this rain. Our lamp in the livingroom is broken so it is so dark in the house. I wanted to go shopping today but I really do not want to go anywhere in this weather. Anna comes home today!

I was such a good girl.....I went to the gym last night to life my weights and I went again this morning and did my 20 min. on the treadmill and I took my 45 min clubbin' cardio class. If it stops raining than I will go back to the guy later tonight to get some more cardio in. I just looked outside and I see to break in the rain. I guess I could do some weighted crunches at home and I have to clean the bedroom (mine and Anna's). I guess that will be my day. Pretty boring hu? I guess a day like this is good because I really do have so much to do around the house.

We lost power for a min or two earlier and that is strange for us because we are on the same electrical line as the airport. I believe that there are 5 or 7 homes in our neighborhood on the same line so we NEVER lose power and if we do it is only for a second and then it always comes right back on.

I still have to go shopping sometime this week for an outfit to wear to a wedding. The guy who teaches my clubbin cardio class that I love so much is getting married on Saturday. I can't wait to go because they are having an outside wedding and I want to see the house they live in. I have seen pictures and it is HUGE! Greg will not go because he hate weddings so I asked a girlfriend of mine if she wanted to go. She use to take his class with me but she moved about an hour away a few months ago. I thought that she would love to see everyone again and she is now my date! I tried to convince Greg that he could have two women if he changed his mind but he just gave me "that look" so I left it alone.

I think I have talked about nothing for long enough. I will end this here.

my tattoos

I have three tattoos and I figured with my brother getting his I would tell the story behind all three of mine.

I got my first tattoo the night before my 20th birthday.It is a symbol of friendship and 5 of my girlfriends had already had it done a few months before me. It was paid for by them as a birthday gift and I was so scared....this tattoo hurt the most. I am only really friends with one of the girls now. I do see another on occasion but that is because she is married to my personal trainer. We are just not really close. The other girls have moved on in their lives and I guess they don't want to be reminded about the past. We all worked together as dancers. It is a part of my life that I can not forget about. I am glad I have this tattoo and I do not regret having 5 friends out there with the same tattoo. These girls helped me get through some very rough times in my life. We had birthday parties for the kids together, we have been through everything the best of friends could go through and more. These ladies know more about me than anyone else. They have seen my strength and my weakness. I really miss having them in my life everyday but I will never forget the times we shared together. We have a special bond even though we do not get together like we should. Carrie, Angie, Heather, Robin, Kris, and Dawn have a special bond and that will not change. This is a symbol of our friendship..........

My second tattoo came about 2 months after my first one. I did not pick a picture out of a book, I told the tattoo artist what I wanted and he came up with his own idea and colors. Anna loves it and like to show it off to her friends. I went on a trip to Atlantic City with my girlfriend (my tattoo friend). We went with some guys that she knew....they were old and wanted a pretty girl on their arms while they threw money around. We had a pretty good time. They seemed to know all the important people. We said that we would go back without "our guys" but we never did. I made pretty good money....not as much as my girlfriend did but I was not sleeping with my guy. I never went back on an Atlantic City trip again but I did have dinner a few times and I still keep updated on the main guy(the money guy). He is doing well he keeps in touch with a good friend of mine so that is how I know how he is doing.

I got my tattoo 2 nights after I got back from my trip and I had another one of my tattoo girls with me when I got this tattoo done. Mom was real mad about this tattoo...she said that people would think I was gay. She would never walk with me because she though people would think she was my lover......I told you she is crazy! This is my daughter favorite....if you could not guess it by looking at it.
Image hosted by

My third tattoo I have had for over 4 years. I got this because I love Greg so much. He has helped me in soooo many ways and I will love him forever. If we were to break up for whatever reason I would never regret getting this tattoo. He has been there for me and Anna more than anyone else ever would. To answer you question no he does not have my name on him. He can not have any tattoos because his body rejects the ink.
Image hosted by

Here is a picture of Greg's old tattoo that they had to cut out. Just so you don't think he is scared to get a tattoo. he had this cut out over 16 years ago! His tattoo took up his whole upper arm and now it looks like nothing. I am so glad that I was not around to see it when the cut it out:(

time to relax

I am just sitting here and enjoying the night. We are going to eat cake tonight:) Don't tell my trainer! I have been playing around with my site change on my Avon page. It looks a lot better.....if you want to take a look at this link. I think it looks a lot better than it did.

I know I have been away for a couple of days but I have been sick and I am trying to catch up on some things that I have been neglecting. Anna is at the ocean this week so I am all alone:( I miss her already! I will be spending a lot of time at the gym for the next two weeks so I will have that to keep me busy. I need to get my Avon business back up and running like I use to have it.....I hope my new site really takes off. I think it looks great. I don;t like that new customers have to answer questions before they can view a book but what can I do about that????

I also will have a post with a question of the day so be on the look out for that. Have a great weekend!

question of the day 7/8

Thursday, July 07, 2005

I am still here

Things have been crazy and our computer screen is trash so we had to go out and buy a new one. This computer is has nothing to do with a virus...the computer is just junk! We have had to replace the computer's motherboard twice and the hard drive three times....we are on our 4th hard drive. The computer screen went up and the computer is only 1 and a half old. This computer was not a cheap one but we will NEVER buy from HP again. I tried to be understanding that it was a fluke and it only happens to maybe one in a million but this is a little crazy! Greg is going to bust the screen in little pieces and send it back to HP.

I have a bunch of e-mail to catch up on and I will try to make a real post later on tonight.

how was your 4th?

It is rare that I have the whole house to myself but I do. I am like a kid in a candy store I am not sure what to do. I have not been on the computer in a two days so here I am....did you miss me? I am getting ready to meet with my trainer Todd and I know he will not be happy with my lack of progress but I can only move forward right?

I had a pretty good day at work today and it is a good thing because last night was stressful. I went to see the fireworks with my dad and some of his friends, my younger brother and his friends and of course Anna was there with me. Guess who sat behind us???? Jessica and James can you believe that? After the fireworks Jessica walked up behind my dad and tried to apologize for having his arrested for child abuse and he said very calmly "I have nothing to say to you....get away from me before I call the MP's on you." and dad walked away. Jessica started screaming and throwing out family history to everyone on the field and another lady started to holler at her for using bad language around her kids.

I missed all the drama up to the part with the other lady screaming at Jessica. I walked over to that lady a Jessica was leaving to apologize for Jessica's behavior. When I looked back Anna was crying and shaking she was so upset over the whole thing. She kept saying "we were having such a nice time and Jessica had to ruin it...I hate her." Harsh work for a 8 year old but who can argue with the truth? I had dad take Anna to his house because Jessica was headed in the direction of my car so I had Anna go with Dad.

When I got back to my car (I was parked next to my brother) him and my stepbrother started to argue over the fact the Paul had to carry everything to my dad's car and my stepbrother walked his girlfriend to the car and did not bother to help Paul. I thought they were going to kill each other..............

THIS IS MY LIFE..................sounds like fun hu?

Sunday, July 03, 2005


I just want to thank everyone for the answers and help regarding my daughter. I do appreciate all your help.

My computer has really been acting crazy since yesterday and we are not sure how to fix the problem. We have only had our computer for a year and a half and have had nothing but problems. I can not wait to get a new one because this one is junk and the sad part it that this computer was not a cheap one. Oh well, we learned out lesson and will NEVER buy another hp computer again.

I hope everyone has a great 4th!

a call for help

I am asking for help. When I was a little girl I never had the "bird and the bees" talk with my mom. When I did try to talk to her about it (I was 17) she said "I thought you would have had sex by now." This is not an example of how I want my "talk" with Anna to go.

I have already explained to Anna about getting her period and she open to ask me any questions. I am leaving the lines of communication open. Now my eight year old daughter want to know about the "bird and the bees" I can not tell her a story about the stork and she already knows that her theory of me picking her out at wal-mart is not how do I go about explaining this to a 8 year old. I can not lie to her and make up a story....I tried that when she was younger. What have you done? How do you explain this? I already explained to you how my mother handled this so it is not like I can go by my childhood experience............PLEASE HELP ME!!!!! How have you or would you talk to your kids about this?

I was talking to a guy I work with and he told me that his dad gave him a box of condoms and a XXX tape and told him "use these while you do this." He was 13 at the time. I don't think that will work with Anna. Also I am going to put Anna on the depo (birth control) shot as soon as she get her period. Let me know what you think about that. I just don't want her to make me a grandmother to early. I want her to get an education and be independent before she thinks about babies.

Please let me know what you all are thinking. I really need your help because Anna is asking questions and I am not sure how to answer.....HELP!
