Another day - Another Dollar

So... I've mentioned to most of the people in our building that I will be leaving at the end of this school year. It kills me when I think about leaving "my gurls". The people here have become my family. They went through the divorce, my depression, Krissi's problems, losing Anthony, the wedding..... my life! BUT... they are memories... they don't pay the bills. I'm going to miss these gurls! I love you girls!

This Morning

So.... he didn't kiss me goodbye this morning. I love this crazy man! I just can't believe that he didn't wake me up and kiss me bye.... he always does. He must be nervous about the customers coming to the shop today. He better kiss me when he gets home to make up for it!

Here's a pic of Anthony and Kevin last Christmas. Silly guys!

New Look

So... I've been tinkering with my blog this afternoon. I would love to be able to do this kind of stuff full time! Well, I hope you all like the new look. Don't put it past me to change it again sometime this weekend though! ~grin~

Thought I would post some old pics that you guys might enjoy! This was Anthony in Kindergarten. Adorable, huh?!?!?!


I've got some of the most spectacular friends in my life. Thank you.... for being my "Bella"!

Prayer Request

Anita Abernathy's son, Steven, received an eye injury during a soccer game. He waited a few days until he finally let his mom take him to the eye dr and now it's very serious. He is at risk of losing his vision in that eye. She will be taking him to see another specialist in the morning. Please help pray for this young man who "just loves the game"! Pray hard! and pray often!

For those that pray to our saints.... Saint Lucy is the patron saint of vision.

Just in case you don't know Anita - she is the admin assistant to the Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum for CISD.

The Shack

So... the ladies at NES are involved in their own little book club. Tammy talked me into reading this book so I could join. I have to say... with much resistance.. I finished reading the book. I went through every emotion known to mankind while reading. I can't call it a religious book.... it is a beautiful story of one man's life. A story of forgiveness, prayer, belief in God and mankind. Wow! I've never gotten so much out of a book.... EVER! I can tell you that Tam and I wanted to put the book down several times. It's thick (not size, but more like deep to understand). DON'T QUIT READING! There is a chapter for everyone. One chapter will hit home for you... I promise! It did for me and Tam. Enjoy it and read it with an open mind. God Bless! If anything matters; everything matters!

I forgive you....... I forgive you........ I forgive you.......


Not much happening today. I'm working for a few hours to get a few things caught up. Anthony wasn't feeling well this morning, so he's with me in the office. (yes, he had school today) Moma Ruth is doing better. She is responding to questions and comments that we make to her. Kevin worked today... bummer! I love spending time with him! He brightens my day! I love that crazy man! Tam and I are getting reading for the TCEA conference. I dont' have enough clothes to take. I sure hope it's nice and warm that week! I have lots of capris.

So... what I ponder today... I really miss my momma! I never thought that I would say Grosse Tete, LA is my "home". BUT, it is. I didn't grow up moving around. Sheldon was my home. But, when Mom and Dad moved and I went through the depression then, I felt homeless. How stupid is that, right? Then, they moved to Cleveland.... that wasn't "home" for sure. Then, when my grandmother passed away and my parents got this wild idea to move to Grosse Tete.... where did I belong then???? The divorce came along and all I wanted to do was get to my Momma... no matter where she was. I realized how much I belonged there. I miss my Mom and Dad and my cousins and aunts & uncles. I belong there. And Kevin - what does he think? He just wants to be with me. He wants to be where ever I am and where ever I'm happy. What an awesome man that I have. Do I think that we'll move there? YES. Do I have any idea when? NOPE! Do I think Kevin and I will be happy there? DEFINITELY! Will we miss our family and friends here? OF COURSE! I just want to spend the rest of my life with my man and keep him happy. He and I deserve to be happy! If you were able to get through my boring diary writing.... pray for us! Pray that we make the right decision. I love my family!

Momma Ruth

Great News! Ruth woke up yesterday! She opened her eyes and everything! They still aren't sure how many brain damage has been done, but we should find that out soon. She is still scheduled to move today or tomorrow to a rehab facility. Keep praying!

a little happier

Okay... so my cuz just sent me this silly video... it at least put a grin on my face!!!


Why do I let people get to me so much? Why can't I just shrug them off? Why can't I just say... piss on you!... and be done with it? Why can't I walk away? Why do I walk away and cry? Are these questions that I should be asking of the world? You are my friends and my family... does anyone have a solution???? btw... alcohol doesn't help!

Woo Hoo!

OMG! A relatively boring day! How exciting is that!!!! Okay, Kari left with a serious migraine - that was a bummer (but, she's feeling better now). Tammy spent the day working on our "scanning computer" that acquired a fabulous virus for the wonderful world wide. I have Anthony tonight, but he's too busy watching a movie to spend time with me. It's one of those weird sci-fi movies that I don't like - bummer! Kevin stinks - no literally smells bad! I cooked fried rabbit, french fries and corn - quit grossing out..... they were raised to be eaten! Ruffles needs a bath and a haircut. Noodles needs to quit shedding. Gumbo needs to be fed. So, there's my life today... nice and boring! woo hoo!
