no, i am not dead

so, it has really been since the 19th since i have posted last. i won't count how many days exactly that has been....but it has been a long dang time i know.

and it was not by choice, let me tell you. i have moved into my newly divorced pad, and it's a good thing i don't listen to my parents anymore (like i ever did) but my dad's response upon the first inspection of my new paradise was to comment "well, you've lived in worse places"
hmphhhh.... some people have no vision of greatness to come.

me on the other hand, i am inspired by all the blood, sweat and money that will have to poured into this place to have it where i invision it to be.

it's an old farmhouse with a back yard so big only a lawn boy charging by the hour could lust over. it has crown molding and shelving and original REAL (not laminate) wood flooring and best of all........4 BEDROOMS (not that it will keep the munchkins out of my bed) but still, I am pumped. It has character and i just feel like it is a good place to start my new chapter in life and to hell with snotty comments from people that don't have to live here. go back to your own boring house and talk all you want.

my neighbors are my landlords (hahahaha) they have lived on this block for 42 MARRIED years, which will tell you how old they are, and they are just as cute as can be. the chicken houses down the street are not so cute but hey, it only smells at night. :)

so any way, i know i have been awol for awhile so i have a LOT of catching up to do. thank you NOLA for reminding me why i adore you so much, it's nice to know i was missed :) and pictures are forthcoming

much needed low key weekend

so no, i did not forget that i have to finish my last post, but my brain is too mushy right now to work that hard. i am so content to report that i had a much needed low key weekend. i did not get to move but i did sign my lease, so the joys of relocation will take place next weekend. i got to hang with an old but new friend on Saturday and that was much needed and very relaxing (well, as relaxed as you can feel after laughing so hard you basically wet your pants.) that girl is funny!
today is Mother's Day. my own mom is consumed by her various gardens so i bought her a clematis (had to be purple) to plant (was gonna be a good daughter and do it myself but a) it's allergy season and i hate going outside and b.) it was raining
other than that, it's almost 9pm and i am going to bed :)
Happy Mother's Day friend.

as you are reading my post listen closely for the strains of the Rocky theme song playing in the background

man, that was a looong post title huh? BUT IT'S HOW I FEEL!!!

after a long search i can happily report i have found a new place to make breakup cds and watch Twilight.


(translation: i found a new house and am moving this weekend)


have not figured out the part about how to pay for it and food every month, but hey, i like to live dangerously so it'll work out.


and to top off THAT exciting news I have run (well, half run-half walked) 2 miles for the past few days......


see I told you









i am sorry to report though that i have cleared out all e-z mart, conoco, fast trip and white oak stations shelves of this product....


so if you live within a ten mile radius of me, sorry. you'd think by now i would remember to get the big bottle at Wal-mart but no. not me. anyway, hopefully i will have some fun pics of the new pad soon :) :)

Friend Making Mondays...man I just did this post

Today Friend Makin Mondays is being guest hosted by Amber over at AEFILKINS


and here is what she wants to know (oh yeah, if you don't know what FMM is by now visit Kasey @ ALL THAT IS GOOD to get the scoop.)




Name 5 toys that remind you of your childhood:





Which is not as easy as it looks when you want to be original and creative (and everyone else already did their posts a million hours ago, cause I don't get off of work till 6pm now. sniff) so bear with me as I try to be clever.



okay, so once I got started I could not stop, this was a fun one


here we go




NUMBER 1. ahhhh. many happy hours were spent playing with my brothers He-Man "Masters of the Universe" toys. I was not so into She-Ra for some reason just the man with the silver breastplate fighting off Skeletor and Snake Mountain. good times good times. Heck, I even saw the movie




NUMBER 2 is my good ol pogo ball



that is until the air all went out of it and I twisted my ankle on the dang thing.

NUMBER 3 still gives me goosebumps when I think of that freaky electronic sound but I loved my Simon game all the same



NUMBER 4 is my PRE-Tetris obsession ATARI (imagine if you could have taken that into the bathroom like I can my gameboy. I could have skipped Jr. High and just been so less worse for the wear )



and no list of my favorite childhood toys would be complete without the good old lite bright




many happy hours were spent spelling out naughty words aimed at my mom for making me go to bed at 8:30 (AND I WAS 14), or for not letting me watch 90210 (altough I did it anyway), having to wear identical matching dresses she made me and my sister to church all the time, and who could forget the hideous yellow shag carpet and sunflower wallpaper (that if I had my choice I would use in my room in a heart beat now!!!) ah the pain....I mean joys of childhood. This trip down memory lane sure was swell.....:)
