Just wanted to take a minute to say Happy New Year to everyone. Lets hope and pray 2009 will be a great year for ALL of us. I realized yesterday that I do have a lot to be thankful for. I thought I would take a minute to list some of those things.
1. My boys....they make me crazy at times, but I am thankful for them
2. My friends...they are great...Belle and Susan, thanks for listening to be bellache and for dragging my butt home when I was in no shape to get there on my own.
3. My parents....they are great!
4. My boyfriend...he has put up with a lot from me and is still a great guy.
5. My cat, the princess....attitude and all, I love her.
6. My home, I have a roof over my head
7. My car, the boopmobile, it gets me where I need to go and gets good gas mileage

Christmas Don't Be Late

I admit, I am a sucker for the holidays. I love the lights, the wonder, and the excitement. I know this year will be a slim Christmas, but I am still believing in the magic of Christmas. Its fun to watch how everyone seems to have a look of wonder about them. Wouldn't it be great if the whole year could be this way? People seem to care about others and about the children around them. I know there are those that only think of the gifts they will get, but let me enjoy my Christmas magic time.
Today is my son's 17th birthday. He is living away for now with his Dad because of the school here, and I miss him. I talked to him this morning and sent his gift back with him after his visit this past weekend. I have a lot to be thankful for. I am thankful for both of my boys. God gave me two wonderful kids.
If I get too busy to get on here, Merry Christmas everyone!
Susan and Belle, have a great one!

Thats What Friends Are For.

Betrayed, that’s the only thing I can think of. For the past 2 months I have been going thru a personal Hell. A friend of mine, who supposedly was a good friend, has decided that I am the worse creature alive. First it started with her saying I had a STD, which Is totally untrue. Then it was that I was two faced and a liar, then it was, I am sorry. Lets try to get past this. Now its on again. I will admit, part of it started out as my fault because I agreed to have lunch with her ex husband to talk. I thought nothing of it, I really didn’t. She had told me she still loved him and he said he still loved her so I was trying to help them out. Then all of the he said she saids started and now somehow, I am the bad person again. At this point, I don’t know who to trust or what to believe. I guess I just needed to get it off my chest. Thanks for letting me vent.

Love the One You're With?

It has been a while since I have been on here. Seems like I am always too busy in the evenings and can’t think clear enough during the day to get on here. Hope everyone is doing well.
OK, so here is my dilemma today. Why is it when you are single, you never seem find anyone you really want to be with, but when you are in a committed relationship, men seem to come out of the wood work. I hate second guessing myself, but I seem to be doing it all the time now. Do I stay with the steady, sweet, really handsome guy who seems perfect? OR do I go with the one with the little bit of danger around him? You would think I would know these answers at this point in my life…I am not a spring chicken anymore. Sometimes I think I am just completely an idiot and will make bad choices the rest of my life.

Highway to Hell

All I can think of is “Highway to Hell”. I am heading out this evening to meet my ex husband to pick up our youngest son for a weekend visit. See, Hitler has done everything he can think of to keep me from seeing my son. Now, keep in mind, I have custody. I am allowing my son to live with his dad in order to try a new school. The school here in our little town is not all that great and my son had some incidents that happened last year and he is refusing to go back to school here. I am taking my oldest son who is 19 with me and Hitler and I will trade kids for the weekend. To make this trip a bit more interesting, I am taking my Dad with me. Yes, the one who just turned 70. He doesn’t remember that he is 70 and wants to go with me in case Hitler tries to be a butt again. I am just hoping the Highway to Hell will smooth out this evening and that the switch will go well so I can come back to the beautiful mountains here in WV.
This week has already been stressful enough here at home. I could really use a stress free weekend right now.
I am also looking forward to a party that Susan, Belle and I will be attending this weekend. Gotta love the passion parties…….
Have a good weekend, everyone.

Daddy's Girl

Can you believe that at my age I am STILL Daddy's girl. My Mr. Wonderful, that I have been dating for a little over 6 months now, asked me last night if I ever thought he could even come close to being as wonderful as I thought my Dad is. I smiled and told him that he could sure try, but I am pretty sure that he will have to settle for being wonderful in a whole different way than my Daddy. :)
I guess with Dad's birthday coming up this weekend it has me in a melancholy mood. I know I am VERY lucky to still have my parents and to have them both be healthy. I am thankful for that. I am not saying my Dad is perfect, trust me. He is male, after all. But in all honesty, he is everything a daughter could want in a Dad.
To all of you out there who still have your Dads....hug their necks and enjoy them.

My Dad

This weekend my Dad will be 70 years old. It is just so hard for me accept that my Dad will be 70. I have been thinking a lot the past few days about my Dad. Trust me, he isn’t perfect, but I have to admit he has been a great dad. He has told both my sister and I that he doesn’t want a gift for his birthday this year. I have been working on a letter to give him letting him know how much I appreciate all the things he has done. It has made me a little weepy the past few days. I can’t imagine life without either of my parents. I depend on them for so much.
Any ideas on anything else I can do for my Dad’s birthday to let him know how much I appreciate and love him?
