I hate when I am soooooooooooooo busy I have no time to write, I really don't like it. I am going to figure out how to fix this, by the end of THIS year. Otherwise I am only going to be posting on my W.W. and this blog will be nuttin but pics.

So, Mish, Bug and I have been havin routine coffee on Sat. mornings in a central location and it has been great, minus the jinx we have had put on us. I love starting my Sat. mornings with these two and just sitting huddle around a lil Starbucks table talkin about NOTHING and EVERTHING!!! and When we meet we are there for HOURS which is also great so everyone gets a chance to chime in, since we have issues with this, and unload!!! :) The only BAD thing about our meeting is the last two, two of us got hit with CAR problems. BOOOOOOOOOOO. Hopefully Buggy has put a stop to this since she was the one due next for issues by not waiting until Sat. to recognize a problem and getting her car fixed in the middle of the week. Cause we have all decided these are becoming some EXPENSIVE coffees. I think between the 3 of us we are close to $1200. STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So we are not meeting this Sat. :( I am sad!

I am also on the prowl for a new car which is stressing me out. I have never bought a NEW car and not only that EVERY car I have EVER had has been passed down to me or chosen for me. I sat and thought about that the other day because WHAT kind of car do I want. I am not a car person what so ever. I don't car about what it looks like or even the color. Can it get me from A to B, that's what matters to me and is it Safe. Those are my requirements and from those I trust that I have talked to that is just not enough information. So I guess i have some research to do and some serious thinkin too. YUCK!! I think it is just easier for someone to pick the car and say here it's yours!!!

I miss my doggy MORE and MORE each day!!!! When I open the door after work I expect her to come sliding at me with her tail wagging and mouth hanging open cause she is SOOOO excited to see me and she is NOT there!!! I know she is soooo happy and being well taken care of and I did the right thing for her but I miss her like crazy!!!!! I keep thinking about taking the new owners up on there offer to go see her but I know in my heart that is probably not a good idea.

I am ALMOST done Christmas shopping, YEAH!!! and thank goodness since I just shelled out all my money for the freakin car. I have a few gifts left to buy but just a few and I am okay with that. What I need to do is start wrapping. I guess I will start dedicating some time to wrapping, but that means I need to get the tree out huh!!!!

I am loking forward to the holidays and time with my family/friends. I am excited about the cool weather even though I cringe in the mornings. I look more forward to the new year and pray these times will get better, pray we will not be as stressed and pray we can enjoy each other and the relationships we have and not focus so much on the MONEY/PRESENTS. Some said to me recently, I love Thanksgiving, I wish Christmas were more like it and I have to agree. It would be soooooo wonderful if we focused on BEING with the people we love and being excited about that and not all the material that Christmas comes with. Unfortunately it is embedded in us and it is a hard thing to turn around, tradition, but I think it is something I would like to try to bring more focus too, just bring together, being happy and healthy and appreciating the love that surrounds us!!! HOMEMADE gifts for everyone next year, get creative. (ummmm Princess T, that means I would like a blankey, k?!)

It's Friday and I am HAPPY!!!!!!!! I am taking my girls to see the Nutcracker tonight! I can't wait!!!! They have never seen it and neither have I. My Mommy comes home from FL tomorrow and I think I will put up the tree. Sunday will be time spent with my girls and their sisters. Happy Friday!

Where to start...........and giving thanks

I don't even know where to begin so much has happened since I last blogged and when was that, hmmmmmmmmmmm, I don't know an I should have checked so I don't repeat. Oh well I am to lazy. I am also suppose to be planning my second High-School reunion but that requires work too. The first one was a HUGE success and I am pattin myself on the back cause I was a lil nervous about how it would turn out. I will share some pics tomorrow, again requires work and I am not really up for that.

My girls are 14 officially for a few weeks now and they haven't turned in to monsters, YEAH! I am thankful for this blessing!!!

I found a new home for my Baby Doggie and I am sad. :( She is happy though and that is what matters to me. I am so thankful for this blessing...and Craigslist!

One of my best friends moved and in to her OWN place with her husband and family and I am so thankful for that blessing.

My bestest friend is coming for the holidays and I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO thankful and excited. Especially since I cried from missing her so much this past Sat. Thank you!!!!

I reunited with friends I haven't seen since 91-92....and it was like no time had passed between us. We shared memories and good times and talked about growing up....most of us have kids that were our ages when we met and were sweatin big time as we reminisced. I am thankful for rekindled friendships, it is indeed a blessing.

I bought a new camera, with 12x zoom, cause I NEED it!!!! Funny how many people tried to make claims on my other camera, duh, NOOOOOOOOOOOOO way!!! It is my favorite and this one will really only be used for long distance occasions. I love my camera, LOVE LOVE LOVE it (the original, not the new one) The new one is to big to carry around in my purse anyway. I am thankful that I was able to save the money to buy and then actually buy it. Being able to purchase a present for myself is a blessing!!!!

I am thankful for many more things because I am soooooooooooo blessed however I could be here all day writing about them and never get the second reunion planned. Hopefully I can get some pics uploaded for W.W.

THANK YOU JESUS for all my blessings and all the love that surrounds me everyday!

listening and learning

I hate trying to come up with a title when I just want to write what I want to write and be done. Maybe I should just write and not even think about the title and then go back to it after writing.

So I have not been good about sticking with my initative to stay on top of this blog thing this week. I mean here it is Thursday, YEAH!!!!! Thursday again, already, how do the weeks keep flying by and when will it slow down. It seems I miss alot of the week but Thursdays they seem to stick out for me and maybe because it's one day before Friday and I love Fridays even if I have to be at work for 8 hours, which I don't hate. I enjoy coming to work and I am thankful for that.

Soooooooooooooooo...back to where i just wanted to write. Lots has been going on and my mind is racing and I am overwhelmed to a certain point with life, or maybe just other peoples lives, not really my own. My life, well, it is good and I am happy and my kids are wonderful, although they can do better in school. When people ask me how am I doing the first word that comes to mind is blessed, the second wonderful. and I know because I have had lots of how are yous this morning. My circle of friends however, it seems like lots is going on and not leaning towards wonderful. For me that is hard, one because I am a fixer, a care taker, a problem solver, a believer in this to shall pass, we WILL get through this and we can. AND...when it is one person in my circle it is okay I can take on the negative vibes and the whoa is me and HELP...when it feels like it is my whole circle, it affects me and HARD. I know I can not save the world but DAMNIT I will give it my best shot and try as hard as I can and give it my all when it comes to those around me and the people I love and care about. Reality as SMACKED me in the face that sometimes I can't do it all and I just have to pray and put all my faith in God and my friends and stand back. I am sure I have done this in the past too, but not a time that I can pull up out of my memories. Probably cause I try to ONLY store the good ones and let the bad ones go.

My, what I thought was a permenant, sleepover has ended and it is a good thing. It is neat to sit back and watch your friends grow. Not really grow up but just grow as a person and for the better. It is even better when you watch that friend figure it out on their own and then you can cheer them on and support their own strengths they have drawn from and their own ideas and solutions. I have watched a lot of my closest friends really grow in the last year or two. I have seen some incredible changes and for the better. I have watched them learn about themselves and the stregnths they have within them and when to dig deep and pull it out. I have watched them go through things and have major success come out of it all and for me it is INCREDIBLE. I love it and it warms my heart and their success are mine as much as theirs so it encourages me and fills me with positive energy and fight and I love it!!! It has also taught me many things about myself, like how much of a freaking enabler I am!!!! I soothe, I coddle, I am the one that will convince you IT will be alright, but I am also recognizing that isn't always the best, nor does it always help the person at hand, my friend. The other thing I have learned it I chose TOUGH hard ass friends who give it to me straight and maybe expect the samething in return. I also make sure I have the one friend who will take care of my soul, my feelings, my emotions, the fact that I am beyond sensative and chose her words carefully and guess what...she is the one I run to first. She also gives it to me straight and tough but with an approach I can handle and actually listen to w/o running to the corner to hide. I tried to use what I ahve learned from her and how she deals with me to deal with this last craziness of the world and I think it made a diffence. I thank her for being the incredible friend she is and a great influence on me because I think she is an incredible woman all around. I am so grateful to have her in my life and to know when I am down I can call on her. I am so blessed to call her my friend and I am so lucky to have a friend like her in my corner which gives me the stregnth to be there for my many other best friends. I trust her and I listen to her and more importantly I hear her and I am so grateful to be so blessed and lucky to have someone like her in my life..someone I KNOW and am 1000% positive has my best interest at heart all the time everytime w/o a doubt. Thank you my soul mate, my friend, thank you for all your words and all the help!!!! I love you!!!!!!!!!!!
