Trip of a lifetime (for me anyway)

On 10/5 I got to go to Texas Stadium and watch the Cowboys beat (although it was very close) the Bengals. I have always wanted to go to a Cowboys game and to be able to go to the stadium in its final year!! Very exciting! :Clap-Hands: My husband bought the tickets for me in September as a late birthday gift. I think it was the greatest thing I've ever recieved! :laughbounce: He knows how much of a fanatic I am about the Cowboys. I had to fight back the tears when I finally saw them run out o

and so it begins..........again

Today starts the first of many "widow weekends". Today it's to go feed the feeders, drink beer, set up camp, drink beer & BBQ, pull weeds, drink more beer. Hubby has been packed all week, as has my dad, ready to run out the door at 5:30 today to go do the "man thing". They're so funny about all this. My dad was scheduled to be here at 5:30 to pick up Joe and my son to drive 200+ miles to put out apples for the deer. I get home and Joe is practically standing on the street corner looking

Interresting Trip

I had to go to Miami on Tuesday for a business trip. Along the way I stopped in New Orleans to pick up a co-worker. She and I had never met but since I had to go over N.O. to get to Florida I figured I'd stop there and meet up with her and we'd continue on together. She's a very nice person, about the same age as me, she has an older daughter and a new baby (9 mos old), we had some things in common and enjoyed a nice chat during our flight. :chat: About half way through the trip she said lo

A dedication to my son

:Clap-Hands: My first born is 17 today! :cheer: Its so hard to believe, time has gone by so fast, its all a blur! I asked him how it felt to be 17, his answer: the same. :big_grin:   We went through a rough period probably due to puberty but all in all he is such a great kid despite some bad influences in his life, namely his sperm donor :ranting: . I've never had a single time where I thought he was doing something illegal or harmful. I trust him completely and we now have a wonderf

Monday GOOD Monday

Hubby got a new job yesterday :Clap-Hands: :Clap-Hands: He just has to pass the drug test and background check but neither of those are an issue. He starts on 6/26 installing security alarm/survelleince systems at businesses. He seems excited, its a little bit different that what he's been doing for so long which was in-house wiring for phones and computers. He actually ate dinner last night (then complained about how bloated he was). I don't think he had really eaten all week because he wa

Monday BAD Monday

Got to work a few minutes late this morning, because I had to drop my daughter off at my mom's house and mom LOVES to talk! :yadayada: :yadayada: Anyway, when I got here there was a message on my phone from my husband and it just said "gimme a call". So I did. Some small talk at first then......."I got fired". :Tantrum: Now, knowing my husband, I immediately thought he was pulling my leg. But there was something in the sound of his voice that told me different.   Why? That's a mys

That was rough

I went to the hospital to see my friend. I prayed for strength all night and again on the way to the hospital. I printed off the "Survivor's Bill of Rights" and "A Letter from your Brain" and took them with me. Her mom was there and I told them both that it may be a benefit to read them, when they could.   I decided that maybe I could be an inspiration to her if she saw how far I had come on the road to recovery. I told her most importantly she is a survivor and she is alive and that as

another lightening bolt

I was at the doctor with my youngest when I got a call on my cell. We had just been shown to an exam room, and I didn't really pay attention to who was calling and after I answered the phone the voice sounded like my friend when she is messing with me disguising her voice. But after I said WHAT DO YOU WANT, she didn't stop like she usually does. So I looked at the caller ID and realized that it was the wife of a co-worker. I really couldn't understand her, her voice sounded very distorted an

Life is too short

I just got word that a co-worker passed away last night. She was only 22 and has two young children. Her husband found her when he went to kiss her goodbye this morning. We don't know the cause yet but they are doing an autopsy and I guess we'll find out more later.   I know its all part of His plan but it sure upsets me to think about those two little ones having to grow up without their mommy. I guess we aren't supposed to understand it all, because I know I don't.   It also reminds

4 years ago today

I married the most wonderful man on the planet for 4 years ago today. We have been through things that have tested our strength, our faith and our patience and I think we've come through with flying colors! One month after we were married Joe was hurt on the job (crushed a bone in the middle of his ankle) and was out of work for about a year. Financially this seemed like it was going to be impossible. We survived and came out stronger in the end. A year later and after several weeks on bed

not with it today

Right after we left the house this morning I was singing along with the Wiggles and messing with my teenage daughter in the car and my 3 yr old was in the back seat laughing along when all of a sudden I heard this really loud honk. I focused in and realized that there was a school bus stopped on the left side of the street with it's flashers on. He was honking at me because I didn't stop. That is the first time in my whole driving life that I didn't stop for a school bus. I was so flustered
