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.

new year resolution #1

To post more often....."yeah right!" like that happened. Sorry ya'll I have had some things going on and this past weekend I was out all weekend with Anna. Her birthday was yesterday the 16th. I took her and her little boyfriend out the the Harbor and we went to the aquarium and also to Little Italy for an Italian dinner. It was a good day. We just had to get the day started off early because of the Raven/Colts game and the Harbor was a mess....there were so many people out and the Ravens still lost!

Anyways, back to my daughters day....I got some really good pictures of them and he bought her a heart necklace for her birthday and he is such a polite boy. This weekend I am going to take Anna to see his hockey game and that should be pretty good and after the game we will be taking them out for breakfast. He asked Anna the other day if she would like to spend the night over his house and that he would ask his mother (ok, my baby is only 10 years old) even if it is just little kids there is no way in hell I will let my daughter spend the night over a boys house!

Its not that serious though....I know that his mother would never allow it either.


I am working a new shift at work now so I go in late and I come home late...I like it better though and the money is not to bad. I have a little bit more time now because I took a semester off from school. I needed the break! I hope that all is well with ya'll and I am trying to get on here more often...I swear!
