Just a little line to say goodbye to my Uncle Tom. He was a kind man who will be missed.
Rest in Peace Uncle Tom!

Veterans Day

Thursday, November 11, 2010

Happy Veterans Day to all the Vets out there and thank you for all you have given for your country!


When a win isn't really a win...

Monday, September 13, 2010

So the official puts his arms in the air signalling a touchdown and the Lions get their first road win in something like 3 years....
Not so fast.
Suddenly in what seems like a bad practical joke the play is reviewed and with someone speaking in terms of a "process" the Lions lose their touchdown and with it the game. I won't type about bad calls the next two plays- where pass interference was happening... I won't be that fan that says the refs are out to get us... but I also won't be happy that an obvious catch was ruled an incomplete pass and left the Lions with another loss.
Next game- we need to work harder, we need it to not matter if someone catches the ball with 12 seconds left... we need to go out there and get a win.
Go Lions- you can do it!

    Totally agree- rules need to be revised but the Lions need to just PLAY FOOTBALL and then it won't matter. If they would have kept their momentum instead of letting up when it was 14 to 3 this probably wouldn't have mattered.

    That was pretty lame as he obviously caught the ball, but from what I've heard it was the proper interpretation of a really bad rule. To add injury to insult, it looks like Stafford will be done for awhile.

Lost and found box?

Tuesday, August 03, 2010

Anyone know where the lost and found box is here on SparkPeople? I seem to have lost July. It was right around the corner a minute ago when I was getting the garden ready, planting the flower beds, etc and the next thing you know it's gone!
Oh sure, it's August and it's nice and warm and the garden is going gang-busters and I have only one birthday cake to bake this month but dang, I was soooooooo looking forward to a nice July and I blink- ok maybe a couple blinks and it's gone.
No dune trips yet- no beaching- no canoeing- it just doesn't seem like it should be August already!
Positive twist- if I keep losing entire months like this I'll be retired in no time!


I'm not missing you at all- ok well maybe a little bit...

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

So it has been about a month since I had 10 inches chopped off my hair... and I really don't miss it at all... well... ok maybe I do. It is great when I want to dry it or toss it up in a baseball hat to not have to mess with all that length. It's amazing how much lighter my head feels too. But there are times when I go all "awwwwwwwwwww" and think of the killer french braid I used to be able to do, or the super long pony tail. I still have enough to put it up in a pony tail, but people at work tell me I look like I'm in college when I have it up- wait- is that a bad thing? I guess not- but it's not like I have a choice in it- the hair is gone-
Missing my hair? How silly huh? I mean, it's only hair- it'll grow back... if I want it to.

    I know exactly what you mean! I'm prone to cutting my hair on impulse, telling myself that it's just hair and it will grow back. Then I always regret not having it longer. I don't think it's silly to have different moods and emotions about your hair at all. I think for women hair is very closely linked to our self image. Oh and by the way...I totally support looking like your still in College!! ;-)

    Thanks you two for the great posts- I think I was just in one of those moods yesterday- this morning I'm loving the hair short because with the humid weather it's not as crazy as it used to be when it was long! ~grin~
Thanks again!!!!
