Have you seen this show yet?

It is a classic brains vs beauty thing, but yet fresh enough to keep your attention.


Update on the job front: I have not received one call from the school district, and a lot of the postings are gone. So I will try not to be too disappointed and keep looking. But I must admit its hard on the self esteem. I truly believe its time to reevaluate my life, how I do things, how I act and react. Seeing the positives in life instead of the negatives, instead of showing the middle finger when someone cuts me off in traffic-maybe just smiling and waving, giving the grocery clerk a little slack when I'm in line with 250.00 worth of food just wanting to pay and get outta there but she would rather flirt with the bag boy-maybe just smile and think to myself man if I was 30 years younger and 50 pounds lighter id be giving her a run for her money.


More patience with my daughter-just living for the moment with her after all it seems it was just yesterday her brother was this age and now look at him hes all grown up and living on his own, and now doesn't have much time for mom. Renew some spark in the marriage being sick the last year hasn't helped much and the hubby has been a real trooper. Re evaluate my relationship with God,see I believe, I have faith but its still pretty shaky-get involved more ,give more of myself.

Get out there and live life again - I have become somewhat of a recluse embarrassed of how I looked with the basketball sized hernia-its fixed now its gone get over myself and get on with living.

ok thats that


see ya'll tommorow

Look at those Legs.....The Rockettes missed out


Can you figure out who this is??
Those legs and that smile sent many a young boy on his way while we were in school.

Respect your elders-sometimes its impossible


I know the old adage "respect your elders" but when they act like this...
I pulled into a parking space this morning opened my door and stepped out at the same timeAlexis opened her door. I am standing there holding her door so she and her friend can get out.

This older man (grandpa age ) starts to pull in the space next to me sees both truck doors open hesitates for a nano second and then proceeds to literally gun it and pulls into the space he barely misses both my doors Alexis jumps back as she is half in and half out. I stand there my mouth open to my knees cant believe this is happening. The man jumps out and I say couldn't you have waited a minute? I have 2 small children I am getting out of the truck ,he says no I have three kids inside and that beats your 2 by 1.(at this point its on... you old sob) So I loudly
say.... oops I hit your car with my door so sorry... he comes running back screaming you had better not have. I shrug my shoulders and say oops. Then he says you had better watch your self you never know what could happen to your truck while your in there. Ohhh ok ASSHOLE its on now... I call local pd they will have an officer make contact with me, walk into the pool sit down at a table look up and low and behold guess whos in the pool yeppers mr asshole himself, he glares at me my phone rings it pd... I very very loudly proceed to file a report complete with description of his vehicle, plate number and describe him perfectly and let the officer know that he is glaring at me as we speak, next thing I know he jumps out of pool and disappears officer suggests I follow him and make sure hes not out in parking lot... sure enough hes out there... hes moving his vehicle clear across the parking lot. So as you can today it was very very hard to respect my elders.

Its official


Well folks its official after the hubby and I talked long and hard about the economy, the future of my business ( I detail used cars for the major Chevy dealership here in Austin) and my health we have decided its best I sell the business and go back to work in an office setting. I have many years experience and to be honest Alexis is 7 and during the school year really doesn't need me during the hours of 8-5 except of course for special things at school. I have decided to follow in my best friends(Rhonda) steps and apply with my local school district, which of course would be the ideal place to get hired, mostly the same days off as Alexis and the entire summer also. Now don't laugh ya'll it took me over a week to tweak my resume and to design a new and hip cover letter (just as I was writing it the yahoo front page had a huge article about the new black in cover letters, said that the key words like team player, goal orientated were not any good) well hell anyways... So its done the application has been filled out and resume and cover letters sent, there was 9 positions within the district I was qualified for and interested in. Pray for me ya'll god only knows if I get 9 rejection letters were my self esteem will fall ( hehehe ) not really funny.. damn scary if ya think about it its been 7 years since I worked out side the home and our 2 business's. Hell ya'll I don't even own appropriate clothing ... unless jean shorts, t-shirts and tennis shoes are the new office wear. The fun thing will be if I am blessed to get one of the positions both Alexis and I will be going back to school shopping.

Is it time for to school to start yet??


Today is the day that Alexis will see her mother turn into a screaming meme right in front of her eyes. I swear the child has found every button and every last nerve. Can I have this, can I eat this, can we go here?? It has been non stop since the butt crack of dawn (5:45 am). Now please don't get me wrong I love this child with all my heart, I'm just not liking her much at this moment, she has an answer for everything, a roll of the eyes and a sigh. And I swear if the child puts her hand on her hip and tells me to get a grip one more time... (there is not a court in the world that would convict me for what I am about to do).

The best things come in the mail (just ask Alexis)


Remember this? Well it came in the mail the week I was in the hospital, I didnt get to see her open it, but daddy said she screamed and then proceeded to kick him out of the living room so that she could listen to it.




Thank you Jeani for finding the cd and sending it to Alexis!! you are a hero.

Good Morning




Hope everyone had a nice 4th of July!! Its funny how the each holiday some how means different things to different people. We spent several hours at our local celebration riding rides,eating funnel cakes,lemonade you know all the major food groups. Then went to a wonderful BBQ with good friends,again good food,good conversation and little ones every where. We headed back into town to see the fireworks and meet up with another group of friends and of course more good food (notice a pattern here?) Sadly with the major drought here in Texas and fireworks available fires sprung up every where the last couple of days.

Wednesdays only in Texas

Sigh when he turns it all on, the comforter and the sheet rise at least a foot in the air unless its strategically tucked under ones body.
