Friday Fill -in's

Never found out what the smell was in the miraculously disappeared!! very very strange! Especially since there are only 2 of us in the office!

Went to Weight watchers last night and lost another 5.6 pounds!! I am so excited! I love this diet. I have to adjust my points this week, shouldn't be a big deal since I really wasn't using all of my allotted points anyway.
While we were at the meeting, my 9 year old went with me, the leader was talking about "feeling" hungry and how alot of people will eat even when they don't have that feeling. My 9 year old says, "that's what I would do!", out loud in from of about 20 people. Everyone laughed and she was quite embarrassed as I don't think that she meant to say it that loud! Before we went in to the meeting she wanted to know if she could take her Doritos in with her...."I don't think that would be a good idea honey!"

Well...TGIF...I hope everyone has a great weekend! Rainy here today and getting cold again over the weekend...yea me!!

Question and Advice appreciated

My daughter, the 14 year old has/had a Facebook account. A couple of months ago she wrote some not so good feeling about her step mom on there. She was made to take them off and her Facebook account has been monitored ever since. Here and there she will make up some stupid little status saying but other than that nothing. She then got grounded by me from her phone and Facebook for getting a D+ on Gym...that was a whole other post. She has been grounded for 3 weeks from it. Tried to access it once here at my house and I changed the password. Evidently when she was at her dad's this past week her step mother says that she tried to access it again on Thursday. Without telling anyone her step mom deactivated her account. Emily's grounding was up tonight and when i tried to log her on, since she didn't know the password, we couldn't get on. THAT was when I found out what the step mother had done. She "assumed" that all Emily would have to do is reactivate by email...NO it wipes the whole thing out.
So now her dad and i are arguing because I feel since I am the one that imposed this grounding, the step mom should have taken it up with me before deactivating the account. I feel she overstepped her boundaries.....what do you think? I now have a bawling 14 year old here, she had a ton of pictures and pictures that she created, friends and alot of "meaningful" things to a 14 year old on here. Needless to say I AM PISSED. This isn't the first time this step mom has overstepped her boundaries, but of course her husband, my ex husband only sees her side of it!

February 22nd 14 years ago

At 9am 14 years ago i was being taken to the delivery room for a C section. While they were prepping me, my mom and mil were out in the lobby taking pictures of a baby. Cooing and awing over this little baby that had "my button" nose etc...only to find wasn't their grandchild they thought it was!! I think I have a picture of that "someone elses " baby somewhere! Emily was born about 930am. She was the best baby ever. Slept alot, never cried, slept all night thru at only 4 weeks old..she was perfect! She was and still is the best thing that ever happened to me!! Happy Birthday Emily...I can't believe you are 14!! You will always be my baby!!!

14 years ago

14 years ago tonight i was in the hospital in a dead end labor. I went into the hospital at 11am. Walked the halls, walked the halls some more....nothing. No labor pains, no contractions no nothing! The doc came into break my water, i am in the hospital bed laying facing the door in all my glory. In walks my dad...nice...."what's going on"...he said....uh...the Dr is breaking my water....glad you could make it!! lol Anyway the doctor, being rude as can be tells me to "RELAX" while he is "manually" making me am trying, but i would be more than willing to bet, since you are a male, that you don;t know how this "SHUT IT!" Anyway...long story short, I still didn't dilate, still didn't go into labor. So, it was time for the lovely "pit" drip....still no contractions other than Braxton hicks and a little bit of back labor, still only dilated 2. Doctor comes back in, "I'll be back in in the morning, we will probably have to do a C section if you don't progress anymore....ok, i have been here 12 nothing, do you really think I am going to progress?'re the doc. So there i lay waiting.....the nurses kept asking if I wanted the epidural, i really hadn't felt any real labor pains yet, and if I was truly going to have a c section, would have liked to have experienced some sort of childbirth pain. At about 3am i finally gave in and let them give me the epidural so I could maybe sleep alittle bit. That was fun! I slept alittle bit and then 9am February 22 came.......more tomorrow!

14 years ago today I was expecting one of the best things that has ever happened to me. My daughter was due....but of course like most other 1st pregnancies...we had to wait....5 more days before she would finally decide to show up, which is another post later this week. But this is a poem i wrote her at Christmas time.

I have a China Doll
She’s beautiful and so fair
And when she needs anything
I will always be right here
Eyes as blue as the sky
Hair so pretty and long
This China Doll is my heart and soul
She’s so special in every way
For this doll I will have tried to do everything and more
And for her I’ll never stray
My China Doll is my daughter
Emily Dawn
If you haven’t guessed by now
She is my heart, my soul, my life
I’ll be here for her forever
Emily Dawn you are my China Doll!

I love you always!

Not Me Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I did not sort of chuckle when my sister called to tell me about a mouse in her house...says she will move...i did that same thing years ago!
I did not start weight watchers on Thursday only to weigh myself on Friday....did I really think one day would make a difference...damn right I did!
I did not surprise myself at how easy this weight watchers deal would be...kind of liking it.
I did not get mad this past weekend at John, about a shelf i had hung up and decorated, only to have him tell me to change... it it was too busy.
I did not take everything off of said shelf and rip it (the shelf) out of the wall and throw it on the childish would that be?
Once again....I did not do this Not Me Monday while i was working....
Not an exciting week!

Follow up Friday

Friday the 13th huh? Anyone out there superstitious? I heard on the radio this morning that in America 1 billion dollars are lost every time the 13th falls on Friday due to superstitious people cancelling flights, trips, calling off work etc....CRAZY. I myself am not superstitious.
My friend Kim hasn't called yet for an update to her surgery, so I can't share anything about that with you just yet. As soon as I hear anything though i will be sure to pass it on!
The post here about John's possible birth mother....we got the DNA test in the mail this week and sent it in, she sent hers n hopefully by the end of the week we will know something. They have talked on the phone a couple of times and via IM....very interesting to say the least. If this is not his birth mom....than it is one hell of a coincidence!!
My daughter asked me at the beginning of the week if we would take her and some friends to see Friday the 13th.....I said, "do you know how many people will be trying to get in to see that on Friday the 13th?" So I promised to take her in a week or so....what is one more "Jason" movie? lol
John is on his 30th day of sobriety....exactly one month today and still doing great, still not even craving a for a job!! It is nice having him home, house is kept clean, laundry is done, etc...but it isn't good for him, he is getting stir crazy.
I went to my first weight watchers meeting last night....I think I can do this. I am kind of excited about it too. I am allowed so many points a day, so far today I have done well. Breakfast I had, hard boiled egg, plain english muffin, for a snack i had a 100 calorie cheese nips and an apple. Lunch I had yogurt, 1/2 a muffin, 100 calorie snack, so far so good today. My problem is, I am not a breakfast eater. If I eat breakfast i am hungry all day long it we will see....i ran off a bunch of recipe's and points today, so I will be doing my "weight watchers" grocery shopping this weekend!!
I am sooooo glad today is Friday.....this has been one long week!!! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!!
Now i have to go, i need to find a new route home since a black cat just crossed my path!!

First Post Friday

Humoring Deb at Dirty Socks and Pizza today with my very first post ever in blog goes Deb!!
Hope you are enjoying your alone time!!

My, I could probably write a book or be a Lifetime movie!!
I think I was lost for a long time. That is the only way to explain it. I wasn't raised the wrong way, I didn't have a bad childhood, I had a great family life, very close and very involved, great siblings, great memories....the only thing I can conclude was that I was lost!!
I feel like I have gotten a second chance at life. I have two great kids...most of the time. I have an awesome family and a wonderful man. I am not going to disappoint any of them! The past is the past and although some mistakes are hard to forgive myself for I am trying. If it wasn't for my family or my girls I don't know where I would be.
There were times when I put myself first ALL the time. Selfishness...what an awful trait to have. I would like to say that I have finally outgrown that. If I can make my girls remember one thing in life it will be, don't be could ruin you!
I hope my kids can look back at their childhood and say that is was as good as mine was. I have the best childhood memories! My mom and dad were/are the best parents anyone could ever ask for. Stern but loving...very loving. Granted my parents have been married for 30+ (almost 40) years, and I am girls have adapted and they have overcome alot! This used to worry me, but seeing them growing up as loving, happy, smart girls...I am ok with it now.
All I want now is to settle in a house that they can call home, no more moving, and make the best of every minute of the rest of their lives. I know the rest will fall into place from there.
Thank you to everyone who has endured the hard times and the pain, the highs and the lows in my life, and the ones who will be there until the end!! I love you guys and honestly don't know where I would be without you. Especially my mom and dad!! Here is to a new life, I am finally loving myself!!


Please keep my very very good friend Kim in your prayers, she is having surgery on her neck can see her post here.

Dear Rain:

I can't stand you. You are depressing, cold and wet, none of which i find comfort in. You make me want to stay in bed all day when you appear. You make my bones hurt, you make me very sleepy. You make is hard to see and drive in and you just plain and simple make all things ugly.

I know we can't live without you but do you really think it is necessary to make an appearance just when all of your couterparts, (snow and ice) have melted away and left everything all muddy and messy already? You know the saying..."rain rain go away, come again another day"....Angie can't stand you!

As Promised....

Here are some pictures of our new house. These are "pre-putting things away" pictures...i will post "after" pics hopefully after this weekend!

This is looking at it from the road

This is our "cleaned" off driveway...we took a U Haul up it this same day! When you get to the top of this part you turn left 90 degrees and go up again! Fun!

Another shot from the road

Part of the living room

the kitchen

another angle

laundry/storage room

steps from the main level where the bedrooms are to the upstairs where the kitchen, living room, bathroom and laundry rooms are

This is the rec room/computer room/play area
I will save the bedrooms for when I show the "after" pics!!
Stay tuned for my 100th!!

Welcome Back Angie!!!

Ok...maybe that is alittle much...maybe some of you haven't missed me!! BUT...I have missed all of you!!
We have been moving and moving and more moving. I would think that I would have this down pat by will say the same thing after you read my 100 things about about 2 more posts!!
Let's see...too catch up.
  • We have still been in contact with the lady who thinks she may be John's birth mother. We have exchanged pictures, alot of resemblances, answering questions, learning more and more. Next step is probably going to be a DNA test, which is about $325.00...

  • Have you looked up the word "laziness" in the dictionary? Let me know if this is what it says......

Laziness : (verb) - your daughter getting a D+ in Gym...Phys Ed!!! oldest (13 yr old) daughter got a D+ in gym class!! All A's & B's in everything else...but a freaking D+ in gym class....c'mon. I told her I would rather see an F in Math than a D in gym...i expect nothing less than an A in gym FROM NOW ON. Grounded...NO cell phone and computer for the 1st 3 weeks of the grading period. Of course she "doesn't know" why this happened!!

  • We got moved into our new house...we love love love it! I will post pics later today, I am at work right now - shhhh. The driveway is a little tricky, especially in the snow/ice. We (John) only got the Uhaul stuck once!
  • John's rehab is delayed indefinitely. We couldn't get there because of the weather, now that he is 20+ days sober on his own, he is not a "priority" for this free rehab. The people being detoxed go first. So...he is going to go to AA meetings and we will go from there...he is doing awesome though!!

I think that is all I have time for for now. I will post again tonight...and keep checking back for my 100th post!!!

Swap Time!

Check it out!!! Sign up!!! Hurry...deadline Frb 13th....go get the details from Mamarazzi!!!
