Some Sad News....And Some Shopping Of Course

Hello everyone

Good evening. How is everyone today ? I hope you are all well. I have a little sad news to report but please do NOT be alarmed. I am sad to report that my baby Albino Catfish passed away today. He had been sick recently and we tried everything we could to putting medicine tablets in the water to changing the aquarium every single day and making sure that the water stayed alright but nothing seemed to help. He wasn't doing well at all today and a little later in the evening he passed away. We will be burying him in the yard as soon as the rain is gone. We will all miss our catfish he was with us for quite a while. I really liked our catfish and my niece's really liked him too. Its always sad to go through a loss of a pet and tonight was a little bit sad for me. I think that at least he is NOT sick anymore which is great but it was still hard to lose him.

In other news my cousin Peter came over to the house for a little visit which was nice. He will be going back home Tuesday he will be coming back over tomorrow for a little dinner and another visit. Later in the evening we dropped him off at my aunt's house. After dropping my cousin off my folks and I and my niece's decided to go for a ride to JCPenney's for a little shopping which was fun. I did happen to do a lot of window shopping and I also purchased some really cute t-shirts with sayings on them. I also looked at all of the Christmas ornaments in the store which was fun. I loved going to the store it was fun to look around as well as purchasing some shirts that I liked. I will be doing some more shopping later on in the coming weeks.

So my dear world how was your day today ?? I do hope that you had a really nice Saturday ? Have you lost a pet recently ??? I do hope that all is well in your neck of the woods ?? I also hope that you are enjoying the holidays.

Take care

Its Friday !!!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone

How are all of you ??? Its FRIDAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well here I am again. I have to say that even though it is cold in Atlanta, Georgia today I am doing fine. Of course it was another day at work for me but it wasn't too busy. My coworker's and I will be off of work for Thanksgiving. I did stop by the pawn shop which I go to from time to time and I ended up getting two movies and the lady in the store told me that she would give me a deal that if I saw three more movies I wanted I could have all five movies for $10.00. I did get three movies which I liked and I got them all for $10.00 which was a great price for five movies. The owner came in as we were leaving and he knew immediately that I was going to buy some movies. Their movies they have at the store are limitless and they always have something I like there.

Anywho....after work I went and volunteered to serve pizza, chips, little bottles of punch and cookies to four groups of students at my youngest niece's school since they were having a Read-A-Thon. I have to say that volunteering is a job in itself. You might want to know that I did a great job volunteering.

After volunteering my niece's and I and my mom went to eat at IHOP which was really really good. They have this new item on the menu called "Nutella Crepe's" which were quite good. The crepe's were covered with powdered sugar and whipped cream. Inside of the crepe's was the hazelnut chocolate spread called Nutella which I happen to like. Inside of the crepe's were also slices of banana which made the crepe's that much more great. I ate all of my crepe's at IHOP. Here is the link if you want to check it out -----> . You have to try this spread it is quite delicious and well worth trying.

The movie "TWILIGHT" came out today and I have to tell you that I can't wait to see it. I really want to see this movie and I think that from the preview's that it will be worth seeing. Have any of you gone to see it yet ??

So how was your day ??? I do hope all is well with you. Do have a great weekend !!!!!!!!!!

A Little Sad....

Hello everyone

Today I have to share some rather sad news that I received. By the way how is everyone today ? I hope you are all well. might want to know that earlier this morning my boss called me and two of my coworker's into the office but not the new people. My boss called us into the office to inform us that a lady who used to work in our department a while back passed away yesterday of a heart attack. The lady's name is Theresa and I was the one who took her place since she left on medical disability. I met her a few times since I had started in her place. I have to say that Theresa was a very sweet and caring person. She was very nice to me and she would call us from time to time at work to see how we were doing. She was known by a lot of people at our job and she will truly be missed by all of us. I talked to Theresa a few times on the phone at work and she always made sure to ask how I was. My coworker's and I didn't know until our boss told us that she had died. We were surprised by the news of her death. I am completely saddened by the news because she was a pretty nice person. Everyone was shocked by the news that she had passed. I do hope that her family knows that we all liked her and remember her fondly. My coworker's and I went to her house today to see her boyfriend and he was still dealing with the news of her having passed. I still can't believe the news. was your day ??? I do hope that you had a really nice day. Of course it is still cold here in Georgia. How is the weather where you are ??

I'll talk to you later. Good night

Work....And A Really Gorgeous Guy

Hello everyone

Okay so good evening how are all of you ?? It was a pretty cold day outside but there was NO snow in sight however. started another week at work for me. It was a very busy busy busy busy busy day. I do have to tell you that I saw the most gorgeous guy today at work and yes I talked to him. This guy was a lawyer who looked very much like the singer Brian McKnight here is the link if you want to get an idea of how the guy looked ---> . I saw the guy and I said hello to him with a smile and he said hello back and I asked him how he was and he responded with a smile and he said he was doing fine. This guy let me tell you that he had the most amazing smile and he had really nice eyes. I did happen to like his voice as well. As I walking back down the hallway I told him good-bye with another smile and he told me to have a good day and I responded with telling him to have a good day as well. He was dressed in a really nice suit and tie and I have to tell you that I wish I could have asked him for his phone number. I didn't get to see him later in the day however but I wonder if I will see him tomorrow.

You might want to know that I am reading the book I bought called "The Man Of My Dreams" by Curtis Sittenfeld and it is a really great book. I am enjoying reading it a lot and I wonder how it will end. Have you read any good books lately ?? Do let me know.

By the way we have a new guy working with us at work he started today. His name is D*****D and he is a much older gentlemen. He is a really nice guy and he is a good worker. I don't know much about him but I am sure we will get to know him as he works with us. He seems to like us and he didn't mind being around us. Hopefully we will get to know him as time goes on. Its a change to have someone new around but sometimes change can be an interesting thing. You just never know I guess so we will have to wait and see.

So how was your day today ?? I do hope you all had a really nice Monday. As you may know Thanksgiving is almost here. Are you ready for Thanksgiving ?? I do want to wish you all the best of the holidays.

Take care

I Love The Holidays.....

Hello everyone

Good afternoon !!!!!!! I do hope you are all well. I wanted to come by and tell you that yesterday I had a really wonderful fun day and I wanted to share it with you.

First, my folks and I and my niece's went to Steak-n-Shake for lunch. I had a white chocolate milkshake with red and green sprinkles which was quite good. The place was packed full with people. The food was quite good too.

After lunch we took a ride to Garden Ridge which was quite fun. I found some cute light up Christmas stickers, a funny Christmas ornament which was a moose sitting in a outhouse and some Christmas buttons and a book called "The Man of my Dreams" by the writer Curtis Sittenfeld. It sure did look like Christmas at Garden Ridge. We decided not to get the purple Christmas tree after all. We are going to use the one we already have. It was fun going to Garden Ridge. Check this link out ------->

***I am going to ask the question : Are you in the Christmas spirit ??? Let me know. *****

After Garden Ridge we went to TJMaxx where I found (2) more Christmas ornaments which I liked and a cute green t-shirt that I ended up purchasing at the store. After shopping at TJMaxx we went to Burlington Coat Factory where I found some sunglasses I wanted and a pair of Apple Bottom sunglasses for my oldest niece that she wanted.

Immediately after shopping at TJMaxx we went to Blockbuster where I rented my family some movies we wanted to see. I also bought some movies including the new "Sex & the City" movie and "The Jane Austen Book Club". I have to tell you that the movie "Journey To The Center of the Earth" was a really great movie that my mom and my oldest niece and I watched this morning. I highly recommend the movie as a must see movie.

Yes it seemed like everybody was out shopping like I was at the stores. It didn't seem like there was an economic crisis going on. It didn't look like the stores were hurting for money at all. I did have a great time going out shopping with my family. I can't wait until Christmas comes.

So how was your day yesterday ? Did you do any shopping as I did ? I do hope that you had a nice weekend as I did. What have you been up to this weekend by the way ? I haven't heard on the news about the shooting yet I do hope that the guy is doing alright. I also hope that they caught the guy who shot him at the pool hall. Anywho...its been a nice weekend in my neck of the woods today.

I'll talk to you again later.

Its Friday....And A Shooting

Hello everyone

Good evening. How is everyone today ?? Well let me begin by saying that it was a very foggy day in Atlanta, Georgia and the sky looked like a cloudy bowl of clam chowder. was another day at work for me of course. You might want to know that one of my coworker's told me that she thinks I am fat which I think was a really terrible thing to say. I don't feel that its right to talk about someone's weight or what a person looks like I just think its rather rude and NOT at all polite. Am I wrong ? I didn't say anything to her because I was mad at her at the time and I am still mad at her for what she said.

Once my family and I got home my mom and I took my youngest niece to her swimming lesson she takes at a recreaction center near my work. My oldest niece went with her grandfather to her piano lessons that she takes from time to time. My youngest niece does quite well at swimming and she is getting better and better every time. Once we got home we went and picked up my father and my oldest niece so we could go out for dinner. We ended up going to a Mexican restaurant and the food was good. After we ate we noticed a lot of Police cars and Emergency crew's driving in to a place which was near the Mexican restaurant we were at. Apparently a guy was shot at the pool hall which is a few stores down from the Mexican restaurant. There was quite a commotion going on but hopefully the Police were able to catch whoever shot the guy. I wonder if the news of the shooting will be on television tonight you just never know do you. I do hope that the guy who was shot is alright and that he was NOT killed.

Of course we left the area and we took a ride to the mall which is always fun. We all did some window shopping which is fun. I saw quite a few things but I didn't buy anthing. I will be buying my family a purple Christmas tree this year which my family wants. I can't wait to go buy it.

So how are all of you tonight ?? I do hope that all is well in your neck of the woods. By the way a few days ago I bought two movies which consisted of : "Stir Of Echoes" with Kevin Bacon and the other movie was "Hidden Places". I have NOT seen the movies yet but I plan to.

Of course tomorrow starts the weekend do you have any plans ?????

That's all for now. Good night.

A New Hair-Do....

Hello everyone !!!!!

Good evening to you all. I have to say that I have been doing quite well these days. It has been a week of work for me but I have to say that I have been feeling really really really really good.

I have to share something with you. A few days ago I was playing around with my hair and I found out that my hair has grown out quite a bit. The thing is I have started wearing my hair down in a little style which I still like. A lot of people at my work especially some of the men have told me that they like my hair and that they think I look cute. I have been getting a ton of compliments on my hair and how it looks. I have been enjoying all of the compliments about my hair.

The thing is the guy that I wanted to notice me actually has NOT noticed that I changed my hair. He hasn't said anything about my hair or how I have been wearing it. I thought that he would say something and did he ??? NO !!!!!!! Maybe I shouldn't worry about what he thinks anymore. Maybe he just is NOT into me.

I have enjoyed hearing from people that I look cute and that they like my hair.

So how is everyone these days ??? Has anyone been shopping lately ??? You might want to know that its almost THANKSGIVING. Do you have any plans for the holidays yet ???

Do keep me posted. Take care.

A Great Football Game.....

Hello everyone !!!!!!

How is everyone today ?? I have to say that I had a really wonderful time today. My dad and I and my niece's had a great time at the game. We were sitting in section 340 and I have to say that it was a great game. The Atlanta Falcons beat the New Orleans Saints 34 to 20.

I really had a great time at the game. There were quite a lot of people there at the game. We rode the Marta train to get to the game and they had to check purses and everything. I had a great time screaming with the other Falcon's fans who were at the game. My niece's also enjoyed themselves at the game as well. I thought that it was fun seeing everyone else in their Atlanta Falcons outfits and things. They also had face painting people who were at the Georgia dome. The game began as soon as we got there. It took a while for us to get to our seat's. I had fun with the other people who were sitting near us. I must say that it was a great time for us and the weather was pretty nice today to be going to the football game. I would like to go back to another game I just don't know when. My mom decided not to go to the game this time and I wish she could have went with us.

So how was your day my dear world ?? I do hope that you got to have a really nice Sunday. I'll talk to you all again later.

Hello. Its me again. I have such news for you that I wanted to come by and share it with you.

You might want to know that Brian Nichols who was known for his escape and killing in Atlanta, Georgia in the Fulton County courthouse on March 11, 2005 was found guilty on all 54 counts on November 7, 2008. His charges included murder, kidnapping, robbery, felony murder, aggravated assault on a police officer, battery, theft, carjacking, rape and escape from authorities.

I have to say that I am so very happy that the jurors found him guilty for the things he did. I have to say that justice was served by the jurors and by the judge presiding over the case. I am happy to know that he will spend the rest of his life behind bars. I think that the families of those that he killed are able to see that he was punished for the lives he took. I think that Brian needs to understand that what he did was wrong and that he needs to be punished for what he did on March 11, 2005. It was sad to know what he did on that tragic day and I am sure that no one in Atlanta, Georgia will ever forget what he did. Anywho I am just relieved over the verdict. I can't wait to hear the sentence that he will get so the case can be resolved once and for all.

On a much happier note tomorrow my dad and I and my nieces will be going to the Atlanta Falcons football game tomorrow. I have NEVER been to a football game. Usually we watch the game on television but tomorrow I get to see it up close and personal. I can't wait until I get to go to my very first football game. I am sure it will totally be fun and well worth it. I do hope that the Falcons win the game tomorrow that will be something to see.

That's all my news for now. I'll talk to you again later.


Hello everyone

Good morning to you all. Its me again. Well you might want to know that on Tuesday I did go to vote at E.W. Oliver Elementary School before I went to work. The line was quite long and yes we eventually got to get out of line and go ahead of the people waiting in line since my mom had a cane with her and the people said that we could go ahead since my mom was walking with a cane due to her Multiple Sclerosis. Anywho we did go vote and yes as you might know Barack Obama was elected to be our next President of the United States of America.

Eventually I got to work on Tuesday a little bit late but my boss was okay with the fact that I was late. On Thursday my mom felt quite a bit sick and she needed me to go to Kaiser with her to the after hours care which I did. It was found that she had an infection and they did give her medicine which made her feel better. While I was at Kaiser I ended up getting my Flu shot which didn't take long at all. After Kaiser my mom treated me to doughnuts at Krispy Kreme which I have to say that their doughnuts should be considered one of the basic food groups. Krispy Kreme has the best doughnuts in the world in my opinion.

Friday of course was another day at work for me. We had a nice day at work and there wasn't a lot of people there. The people at my work really do like me and I like the people at my work. There are a lot of nice people at my work and its nice to have some pretty friendly people at my work. I do miss my coworker Willie he was a really nice guy and I hope that his family is doing well. I am sure his family misses him very much but I hope that they are doing alright. A lot of people at work still can't believe he's gone and a lot of people still talk about him a lot.

You might want to know that yesterday I bought the book "Marley & Me" which I can't wait to read. Here is the link for the movie -----> . I am still reading Janet Evanovich's book "Thanksgiving" which is a pretty good book to read for the holidays. I can't wait to see the movie. Have you read any good books recently ?????

Also one of the ladies at my work will be getting married pretty soon. She had a Bridal shower at work and a lot of the women gave her presents at the shower. Unfortunately my coworker's and I could NOT attend the shower but we did see her in the hallway and we gave her a card which had a gift card in it from Lowe's where she is registered and hopefully she will be able to buy some things she likes from Lowe's.

In other news the weather here has been pretty nice and the leaves have all changed color. I like this time of year and all of the stores are filled with Christmas decorations and things. Pretty soon it will be Thanksgiving however.

Well my dear world how are things with you ? I do hope that all is well with you and your family. By the way how are things in your neck of the woods ? I do hope that things are going fine.

Do keep me posted.

Some News....

Hello everyone

Good evening !!!!!!! Here I am again. Of course its another week at work for me. The weather in my neck of the woods which is Atlanta, Georgia was rather nice today.

As you might NOT know I hate to say that I have NOT voted yet. I am supposed to go tomorrow but hopefully the line won't be too long. coworker who recently passed his sister brought us a card thanking us for all that we did for her and the family. We all miss Willie and it was sad to lose a coworker that we had known for quite a while. We continue to think of him every day however.

We did get a new coworker who is a woman named A*** and she is a very nice person. We didn't talk a lot today since she just started. She did tell us that she likes working with us and that we are pretty nice people to be around. I hope that she continues to enjoy working with us. I will have to get to know her and she will have to get to know me. It will probably take time getting to know someone new but change can sometimes be a nice thing but its also different sometimes meeting someone new. I will just have to wait and see you never know.

In other news my family and I are doing well. My youngest niece who is eight years old is still doing swimming lessons and she is still learning. I am sure it will take some time for her to learn. My oldest niece who is seventeen years old is still taking piano lessons and she is a senior in High school and she is enjoying her friends and school.

At the moment I am still reading the book "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer and it is a good book. I can't wait until it gets to the theater because I really want to see it. I am enjoying the story and I really hope that the movie is as good as the book.

How are things with you my dear world ??? I do hope that things are well. That's all for now. I'll talk to you again later.
