Happppppppppy "2013" New Year

Sunday, January 13, 2013



Happy, Happy "2013" New Years to you all............Wow, it's been a minute since I've blogged or have been on SparkPeople..........I have my reasons........seems like everyone's computer in Michigan decided to just breakdown all at the same time................My mom's just flat out quit working and my sister dropped her laptop right after getting it out of the shop the same day...........coincidence or what??????

Anyhoo, let me first confess, I was a bad, bad girl when I went home (12/25/12), I gained back 5lbs of the 8lbs I lost, but I had the best time ever, and I really mean “ever”...........I cooked and drank every day until I came back to Florida (1/9/2013).............but, it was all good and I "did not" beat myself up over it......... emoticon

The pic above is what I took as soon as I got home……........what I really wanted to take a pic of, was, my mom in tears because me and my daughter was home for the Christmas holiday since 2009 and she had no idea we were coming…….that was a “priceless” moment and I say this because I made my mom cry twice this year (her birthday and now, Christmas)…..lol…..I thought I was going to get cussed out, I wasn’t expecting tears……so, needless to say that got me and my daughter crying………..we are so mush, mush!!!!



These next set of pics are of my mom and children…………another priceless moment………….during my stay I went to the Casino on at least 4 occasions and won big money 3 of those days that I went, I’m not sure if my mom was my lucky charm, but between the two of us, of those 3 days we walked away with $1,520 with my mom winning the most. The first day I went I took $20 won $150 and gave it all back…..but those last three days I left with everything I won………feeling that the “2013” year would be mines to take…………..

Now, unfortunately, I will have to take 2 steps backwards to move 3 steps forward…………I will be going back to Michigan for at least 5 months, not longer than 6 months to help one of my siblings…..he is currently going through a nasty divorce and his youngest child was dropped on his plate (he has been wanting this) so, my job is to be nanny aunt w/pay for the next several months, until I can interview and hire a full time caregiver, who will be able to assist my brother for this long haul. I’ve always told any of my siblings that if they need me, I would return to help them until they could get back on their feet. This will help me in so many ways, 1) by not currently working and my unemployment running out this week, I will get paid weekly, 2) he has brought me a vehicle and will help me to finish paying on a vehicle violation that has been digging in my side for a few years now, so I can get my license here in Florida, and lastly, 3) I can get some delinquent bills paid up……….So, so much for staying away from the cold weather in Michigan brrrrrrrr and grrrrrrrrrrr…



And, these last set of pics are me and my children………we had so much fun together up until my daughter had to go back home to work for that damn Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck………..but, on the other hand, spending the rest of my time with the my son was awesome, because I was able to catch up on all that he was going through……..Since, I left Michigan (2009), my son has been on his own (he’s 22 yrs old now)—living with my mom and helping out…………….he is still with mom and she said she wouldn’t have it any other way…………..he pays what he’s supposed to every month, he works hard, and she said she just loves his company……….my son is silly as all get out, he has always been the one who could always make me smile when I was having a piss poor day………………now he does that for my mom………….I even went shopping with him for the very first time (another story for another blog---I have never been a shopper, so mom and sister were the shopaholics and handled all of my shopping for my kids and me) and he wouldn’t let me spend any money on myself. At that time, I saw that I had raised him right and he was more of a productive citizen than ever…………..without the help of his father, I did the damn thing and I can pat myself on the back!!!!!!!!

Anyhoo, enough of my bragging and talking about home, I thought I would share and let everyone know that I am still here, just didn’t have a computer during that time………..So, I wish all of you a happy and prosperous “2013” New Year……………..

ALL OF YOU JUST………”KEEP IT MOVING……….KEEP IT MOVING”

    Happy new year to you too! I am making a promise that this will be my year. I have another 68 pounds to go to get to my second goal, so I am still working on goal #1, Lose 50 pounds. I have lost 42 but keep regaining the same 4-5 pounds every two weeks. I really need to get a hold on BOREDOM eating.

And I am unemployed too! Can I come to Michigan and nanny out?? LOL. Actually, I am going to get a wonderful opportunity after August as my BFF is having her first child, and she knows NOTHING about children. This shoudl be fodder for many jokes of bad taste for the rest of her child's life. And I wouldn't miss it for the world.

Congratulatins for making your mommy cry... it's a special gift that we can give them!

Hugs and have a safe trip,
Angela
