    This blog entry reminds me of the one I wrote a few weeks ago. I was sick and trying to get some rest, and my family kept calling and coming in and out of my house. Why was the school broadcast system coming on so late anyway? (Grrrr...) I hope your doctor's appointment will go well and that you will recover very soon. *hugs*

    That was an interesting evening. I hate those kinds of calls. I've gotten them too, I've gotten a lot where people will call and just start talking. So, I let them finish what they have to say and then tell them they have the wrong number. LOL They are mostly calls on my cell phone. When I first moved into this house, my number was very similar to the hospital emergency room .. do I need to say more?

You get better soon. I know what bronchitis can do to you. I don't know where you live but if it's in the north, be careful with all that cold and snow and wind. Bundle up very well.

Blessings, YIM

Kitty Giggles-From The Kids

Friday, January 18, 2008

Today i took a day off..a day to get caught up with life... i woke up earlier than i wanted but compared to my normal wake up time...slept in... if that makes any sense... migrane has finally totally went away... for which i was happy... today i decide to take the kids to lunch... which is always an being no exeption... we first went to the chinese was still closed...went to wally waffles...they were too busy...'s subway... after taking 15 minutes to order...we sat down to eat... needless to say... before lunch was done, we were laughing to the point of food flying out of our mouths... it was time to get out of there... so we clean up and leave...get in the car.... just then, oldest daughter remembers she forgot her purse in subway...son dashes in to get it... and dashes out with it in hand... at this point, one sister says he looks like he just robbed a little ole' stop and imagine... there are people all around... including a family that was just getting out of their car right beside us...nobody could have heard daughter...or even know that oldest had left her purse behind and brother was just retrieving it... and then here he comes...yelling "come on, let's get out of here, i got it and there after me" and he says this with a straight face...roflmao... i had to turn off the car... and just laugh... the kinda laugh that has you clutching your stomach and tears streaming down your face...and glad that you just went potty...

aaahhhh...another great adominal workout thanks to my wonderful teenagers :)

    Yr kids sound like they have the same sense of humor as mine. Mine regularly sneak up to me in the supermarket and then proceed to loudly exclaim with indignant voices and expressions...."hey take your hand out my bag". Naturally they quickly right the wrong and I've long stopped being embarrassed. I love the sound of your relationship with your kids. Hope they are your weight loss cheerleaders as well.

Sharing My Dream

Friday, January 11, 2008

Ok..for those that haven't heard it yet..and for those that have but need the extra laugh... i go to bed last night wore out and stripped of any energy... i have been putting in long days at work trying to keep up with my job and the other girls job.... it's been a rough week...i'm exhausted... i hit the pillow and fall right to sleep...something i never do... the next thing i know, i'm dreaming.... and wake up laughing... hysterically.... a good thing...if it hadn't been the middle of the night and i could of stopped within a reasonable nooooo... i dream that my mom, me, my 3 nieces and my 3 kids are on a family vacation... this was to a cute hotel that had everything there..shops... restraunts...and a small amuzement type park area... the kids all scatter to do their things... my eldest, my mom and i stop to get an ice cream cone...don't ask me what kind the daughter and i got... but i remember my mom had a peach colored one... (funny what things you remember and don't remember from your dreams) any ways... we go to the ride area..they have those rides like those that are outside of stores.... the ones kids ride on... so the 3 of us each get on is the first (and only) to put her quarter in....'s not a kids ride...more like a mechanical shook her so hard that her ice cream splattered everywhere...including on her... and her hair stuck straight up.... the ride stops, she takes her finger, scoops up some ice cream that got on her, licked it and said "whoa..." at this point, i'm laughing so hard i wake up... and then couldn't stop laughing....i couldn't even get up i was laughing so hard...i thought for sure i was going to pee and it didn't matter... i could not stop laughing.... even writing this is cracking me up... mind you...this is the middle of the i didn't wake my kids up from laughing, i don't know... but now they are just kinda looking at me like i've lost my mind....but that's ok... i can live with that...but stomach hurts from laughing so much and so hard... i know i've had a good work out... too bad we can't record

if your not laughing yet...sit back and close your eyes... think of an adult sitting on a toy ride...that is moving like a mechanical bull.... the body jerking back and forth...and her not letting go of the ice cream..that is splattering every where...and then the hair..can't forget that...standing straight up...and then she just looks slightly suprised and says "whoa" tell me..that didn't bring at least a smile to your

at this point..i need sleep...real funny

A Long Over Due Good Bye

Sunday, January 06, 2008

Have you ever said good bye to someone or something you love? it's never easy.. but there are times in our lives we have to close one door to open another... back in June of last year, i had decided to say good bye to my unhealthy self to open the door for a thinner healthier me... it's been an on going process...i find myself still entertaining the unhealthy ways... this year, i've made a pac with myself..i am saying good bye to half of me... it won't happen over fact... it will take more than this year to extract a half... but this is where it begins..right here..right now... and this is the letter to the half of me that is leaving... i hope to hear from all of you and read some of your good bye letters also...whether it is to a certain food, unhealthy life choice or the fat... let's say good bye here and now...hand it's good bye letter and move on with the divorce... this does not mean it will be easy... good bye never is... doesn't mean we will never fall backwards... divorce doesn't mean it disappears...but this is a way to finally come to terms with what we are doing and move forward to a better us :)

Dear Fat,
You have been with me for many years now...growing to a whole other fact i am now carrying 2 overweight people. I cannot continue this way. My mental and physical health are jeapordized and i just cannot take the pain any longer. I have hinted for you to just leave, i have given you the silent treatment, i have cried and i have gotten angry and even yelled at fact i have tried just about everything to get rid of you, and yet, you won't leave. So, i am removing you from my home and my temple. You are no longer allowed to stay here, and you will be removed ounce by ounce, pound by pound and inch by inch. I am no longer angry at you, i have been your biggest supporter after all, i have since learned from this and will no longer support your lifestyle and your painful past.

Good bye half of me and hello life.

Dear unhealthy me,
I am just too fed up with you. I hate it when you make me, in my 20s, feel like I'm in my 50s or older. I hate the fat body you've given me, the way you make me pant after walking a small distance and the way you have decreased my flexibility. Therefore, I've decided to say goodbye. I'll change and make sure you leave for good.
New me

A Friends Grief

Wednesday, January 02, 2008

I don't even know where to begin. I sit here, after talking once again with a friend. I've talked to her a couple times today, and each time she sounds... i don't know...wore out.... though i know it's all part of the grieving process she is now going through. The shock is wearing off and reality is hitting. During this time she has 2 small children she has to help get through this also. A couple years ago, she was in love, had 2 beautiful babies with this man. A man who chose drugs over anything else. She left him, knowing that where it was leading was no good. It wasn't easy for her to do, but she had 2 wonderful girls to take care of now. She worked hard, very rarely seeing any child support, to raise these precious girls... the youngest is now 4...the oldest just 5... a couple months ago, the 5 yearold woke up several times...every night for a couple weeks... with nightmares that her daddy was shot to death.... being of such a young age, it wasn't anything she could of watched.... they don't have cable and the mom kept very good tabs on what they watched.... i remember my friend asking me then... what do i do if it comes true.... we both knew the life that the dad was leading could very well end just how the girl had dreamed.... and as of January 1st, 2008, did.... just as there were no words then to as what to say...there are no words now... all my friend can really say now is all this was for is $300 worth of pot and a pair of tennis shoes. in another life, i would of thought, well, he chose the life he led, and knew the dangers. if i knew of him not as the man my friend once loved, or the man that was a father to 2 so very precious little girls... i would of said he was worthless even.... but i do know that woman that loved him...i do know those 2 little girls... i do know that though he may of not paid child support or did as he should of for them... he was someones love...he was someones dad... he is also someones son.... the mother a dear loving woman... and someones brother... to siblings that stuck beside him through it all... and friends that will miss him so. He left this world on New Years the age of 32...shot by a boy of 18.... 2 still very young lives...along with another homocide victim.... also very young.... 3 lives...2 that are no more...and 1, so young...with a lifetime of jail ahead of him... don't get me wrong..i do believe in justice...but i think of the boy that was before he turned to drugs... and the mother that loves him.... does he have kids yet? what about siblings? 3 lives... and yet..these are not the only "victims" in a world of drugs.... they leave so many more lives.... innocent lives... lives that didn't have any part of the drug scene... yet... are still paying the price. Will pay that price the rest of their lives....

    I am so sorry for your friend! I understand the worries of family and friends being involved in drugs. My son WAS one of them. Always hiding away from a door in fear of being shot. His friend was shot while at a party, opened the door to let 'friends' in unknowing..thankfully only in the arm. My friend son was stabbed over 11 times at a party for the very same reasons..he is only 19 was 17 at the is strange for those who participate in the drug scene and sadly it ends for some who were just bystanders.. I hope your friend heals quickly and remembers she is #1 and needs to take care of her for those two little ones, because if she doesn't who will? Kylie

    I am very sorry to hear this. I've always believed that there is noone that's purely evil in this world. If your friend is a believer, tell her to pray for him. The girls should pray, too. At a time like this, all his bad things should be forgotten and only the good stuff should be remembered. He was not murdered by the 18 year old. That was only a weapon. We all know he was killed by drugs. My heart goes out to you, your friend and her daughters. I'll keep you and him in my prayers.

    Oh, what a tragedy... I'm so sorry for everyone involved...especially on New Year's Day. It's supposed to be a day of hope and renewal. Yet for everyone who ever loved these people, it was the beginning of a painful road ahead. My thoughts and prayers are with these lost souls' family and friends. May the daughters of this man have a brighter future than their father's. I have a few relatives who were also in drugs. A couple of them have turned their lives around, are holding decent jobs, got married, and have children. I hope they will continue to stay out of trouble. I have one more relative who is still behind bars. Hopefully he will choose a better life for himself when he's released. Kitty, thank you for being such a caring friend to so many here on SP and in your "real" life. *hugs*

    What a shame and what a tragedy. I really feel for your friend and her children at the loss of their father. It seems people would learn yet history constantly repeats the same type of tragedies over and over.

People often think, well, it's my life, and I can do what I want. But they need to think about all those who are affected by their choices. It is a lesson to us all to think of others and talk things over with many counsellors before we make decisions to do 'our' thing.

I am so sorry for the loss of these young men and the loss to their families. My prayers go up for them.
