Hello dear world

How was your weekend ? I hope you all had a nice one. I had a very great Sunday. I have a uncle named Noel visiting with us for the Thanksgiving holiday. The weather was not too cold today as of lately. my niece and I went to the movie theater. We went to see the Twilight saga "Breaking Dawn part 1" which was beyond awesome and amazing. I am an even bigger Robert Pattinson fan and I have to say that I would like to see the movie again soon.

I can't wait for the Thanksgiving holiday to come. I can't believe that it will soon be Christmas time already. I wonder if anyone has started their Christmas shopping ? Are you getting ready for the holidays ????

That's about all for now. I will talk to you again soon. By the way I am on Twitter now if you are on it. Feel free to look for me on Twitter. Thanks again for stopping by.

A Great Sunday....

Hello everyone ! Happy Halloween to you all.
I hope you all had a great weekend. I know I haven't been around in a while. I am sorry for being gone so long. I wanted to let you know that I have returned. I have been working and being fine.
Today my folks and I and my niece's and I went to go play Bingo at a lodge. I did not win however it was fun. After playing Bingo we went to Barnes and Noble bookstore. I picked up the Twilight graphic novel volume 1 that I ordered online. I am still a huge Twilight fan. I can't wait to see Breaking Dawn part 1 coming out on November 18th.
So how is everyone doing these days ? I hope you are all.

A Nice Day....

Hello everyone !!

Good evening everyone. How is everyone these days ? I hope you are all well. I know that I have not been around lately. I have been busy working and doing stuff with my family. I wanted to catch up with you and let you know how I have been doing. My niece Megan recently graduated from the 5th grade which is really exciting. She is getting so grown now. She recently got back from a trip to Tennessee to the aquarium with the girl scouts. my folks and I went to some yard sales in our area since the weather was nice. I got a free book from one of the yard sales we went to. There was this lady in her 80's and she told us that her brother had passed away recently. He had some stuff she wanted to sell. He was a pastor apparently and he had this old book from the gospel and I saw it and she said that I could have it for free. I told her that I would pay for it but she said no. I thought that was nice of her. We also went to another yard sale and I got another book at the yard sale that I wanted to look at.

After the yard sales we went over to Kohl's. I ended up buying some t-shirts that I wanted. I also looked around in Kohl's while we were there. Once we left Kohl's we went to Target. I got a book there at the store. I also got some movies that I wanted in Target. I also bought a new journal while I was there.

My dear world there was a preacher in California who said that the world was going to end today. I am happy to report that all is well here in my neck of the woods. My family and I are doing well. I hope you are also doing well. I wanted to tell you that I had a really nice day today and I had a nice time being out of the house today.

That's about all for now. I will talk to you again soon. Take care everyone.

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone. I want to tell you that I am sorry for not being around lately. I have been busy working and spending time with my family. I recently celebrated my 35th birthday.

Yesterday my folks and I went over to Party City. I found some good Eclipse plates, napkins and a Eclipse centerpiece for my party.

We also went over to Kohl's. I got some new tennis shoes for my birthday and a cute t-shirtAfter Kohl's we went to eat at La Parrilla which the food there is always good. My dad went to pick up my niece Megan from the bus stop. A little while later we went to church and the mass was nice.

Once we got home we took some pictures of my Twilight cake which was made by the store Publix. My niece Megan helped my to blow out my candles. It was my very first Twilight birthday party and I enjoyed it.

Anywho...I hope that you are all well. The weather here has been nice. I am doing well. That's all for now. I included a picture of my cake in case you wanted to see it. I will talk to you again later.

My Weekend...

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone how is everyone today ? I hope you are all well. The weather today was amazing amazing amazing. I wanted to come and share my weekend with you. Over the weekend my family and I went to a place with my niece Megan called "Victory Junction Gang Camp" here is the link -----> . They had kids and young people there with disabilities but they were able to do all sorts of things. We had a camp leader with us while we were there. We did all sorts of activities like archery, fishing, miniature golf, bowling and arts and crafts. There was dancing there after we ate and I was not all that into it. I liked the arts and crafts which was fun. I made a Jeff Gordon race car and I painted a plate in the arts and crafts. I also liked bowling.

The weather was warm which was nice. There was a lot of walking that we had to do to get to some of the activities. Over the weekend they did make chocolate cupcakes which were quite good.

Sunday we had to pack up the cabin that we were staying in. We had to later on go and eat breakfast with everyone. In the afternoon my mom and I and my niece Jeanette went to the gym. She taught us how to play ping pong and she showed us how to play pool.

Later in the day we had to go to the theater to see the dvd of the time we had at the camp. They packed up a lunch for all the families to take with them home which was nice. My dad did get sick over the weekend his blood pressure was high but the medical staff at the camp took good care of him. He seems to be feeling better.

My niece Jeanette drove us home halfway. We stopped off at rest stops along the way. We decided to stop off at a red lobster which is always good. I had the lobster tail, shrimp, steamed crab legs and mashed potatoes. The food was good.

We got home later in the evening. We unpacked the car. It was nice to get home again. While I was away from home I started reading "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" since I want to see the movie.

I have to share something with you. They didn't have any kind of soda at the camp and so I was craving soda all weekend. My niece Megan enjoyed herself and she had a good time with the other kids. My niece Megan and my niece Jeanette took part in a talent show Saturday night which they did quite well in.

So my dear world how was your weekend ? I hope that all is well in your part of the world. I shall talk to you again soon.

Take care everyone.

Driving Update....

Hello my dear world

Good evening everyone. How is everyone today ? I wanted to come and share my news with you. First the weather today was wonderful and it was a nice day to be out.

I am proud to announce that my mom and I went out today in the car. We went out by our church and by my work. I actually did good driving today. I still have a lot to learn but it was hard letting go of my fears but I did it. I am glad that I went out driving today and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. I am quite proud of myself though it took me a minute to learn to take my turns and to not keep a heavy foot. I still have a hard time when it comes to being out on the road with other people behind me but that is a part of driving I guess.

Thanks for all of your comments they are helpful to know that you were thinking of me. I will try to continue to practice my driving. I am not ready to go out on my own but I will get to that sooner or later. It will probably take me some time to get used to driving. I know that it takes time to learn something that I have NOT been doing. was your day today ? I hope that you are all having a nice weekend. I did treat myself to a little shopping at Hobby Lobby since I did well driving and all. I guess its time for me to gain a little more confidence and practice does make perfect.

I will keep you posted....

Needing To Talk....

Hello dear world

Good evening everyone. I hope you are all well. It is officially Friday aren't you all excited ? Well it was another day at work for me and the weather was quite nice. It is hard to be inside when the weather is nice.

I have some thoughts to share with you if you don't mind me bending your ear for a minute or two. First I know that many of us have fears and doubts about things in life. Some of us are afraid of heights, meeting new people, starting a new job, spiders or perhaps going to the doctor.

I have to tell you a secret that I have never shared with you before. I passed the driver's test in which I got my driver's license but I have never driven since then. I recently got a car but the thing is I am afraid to get behind the wheel of a car. I have been going to work with one of my coworker's. The thing is I have always been afraid to drive and to get out on the road. I know that certain people think it is silly for me to be afraid. I hate to be afraid to do something that so many people are doing. I know that there are a lot of people who are able to get behind the wheel and drive a car.

Many people I know have fears and doubts in their lives and they deal with them. How do you deal with having fears and doubts in your life ? Me it seems that I wish that I could just get over this and get on with things but its not so easy. So many things are easier said than done. I have never been able to get over this part of my life. I don't know why I have always been so afraid to drive. I have never thought that I would be afraid to do something that others can do. A lot of people have been trying to encourage me and tell me that I can get behind the wheel of a car but its not so easy to convince myself to believe the people that are trying to encourage me.

Anywho...I just needed to come and talk to you my dear world. I do hope that you all had a good week. I hope that you all will have a great weekend ahead. I will talk to you again soon.

Take care everyone.

Shopping....Chocolate.....And More Shopping

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone. How is everyone today ? I hope you are all well. Today the weather in my neck of the woods has been nice for a change. I thought I would come and share my day with you.

Today my family and I went to TJMaxx. I ended up buying an Elvis Presley journal, a movie called "In The Land Of Women" with Kristen Stewart. I also got a box of chocolate truffles and a bottle of VOSS water. I also got a book titled "NIGHTSHADE" by the writer Andrea Cremer.

After TJMaxx we went to JoAnn's where I got some stickers including some Harry Potter stickers I liked. I wish that J.K.Rowling would write some more Harry Potter books. I really like the books and the movies.

We also took a ride to the store JCPenney. I got (3) t-shirts that I liked. I also got some Godiva chocolate bars. Since its almost Valentines Day its always good to have chocolate for Valentines Day.

Anywho...after shopping I treated my family to eat at MOE's. The food there is always good. The burrito's are great and huge. I ended up getting the Homewrecker which is a type of burrito. The food was good and we always like going there.

So how are things in your neck of the woods my dear world ? How was your Saturday ? I hope that your day was a nice one. I wanted to let you know that I am glad that you all were thinking of me while I was gone from posting in my blog. I will try to post more often.

I do want to wish you all a "Happy Valentines Day"

Update....and I Am Back !!!!!

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone. I am sorry that I have not been around lately but I am back !!! I have been under the weather and not feeling very good. Do not be alarmed. I did go to the doctor and I am taking the medicine that the doctor gave me at Kaiser. The doctor told me that I have Bronchitis for which I am taking medicine for. I have also been doing breathing treatments and taking care of myself. I am working on getting better and I feeling better.

In other news my folks and I had to go and take care of a few things which we got done. I have to tell you that I had bought the book "In Too Deep" by Jayne Ann Krentz. I started reading it and I have to say unfortunately that I could NOT finish it. The more I read it the more I found it terrible and the story was just not believable enough to finish. I usually like her books but this one was just indeed....Too Much instead of Too Deep. I have to say that I do NOT recommend this book at all.

I don't know if any of you saw the Superbowl game last night but I wanted to report to those of you who did not see it. The Greenbay Packers won against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Black Eyed Peas also performed at the game as well as the singer Usher. I just wanted to share that.

I am quite sad to report that it was reported by the weather man that it is supposed to get cold again. I was looking forward to some nice weather but of course not and I guess Winter is still with us. I can't wait for Spring to arrive but not the pollen which I am sure will come.

Of course it was the beginning to another week at work for me. My coworker's and I have a new guy at work with us. Today was his first day at work. He is an older gentleman. He seemed to enjoy working with a whole bunch of us women. He seems to be a hard worker and he doesn't mind the work. I hope that he decides to stick around a while we could certainly use the help. He is a really nice guy and he was very good to work around. I hope that he likes us enough to want to stick around. We all liked him and he seemed to enjoy talking to us. Hopefully he will continue to keep with us. It is different working with someone new but it is nice having someone new around.

So my dear world how are things with you my dear world ? I hope that things are going fine with you. I hope that you have NOT given up on me. I will try to come back more often. I have been under the weather but I am doing better and I will try to post more often. Please do NOT lose hope in me I am still around.

That's all for now.

In Wake of Recent Events.....

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone. How is everyone today ? Some of you may be off watching football but I am not. My New Orleans Saints are not playing so I am not watching football. I do have some different things to talk of tonight. I have to warn you that what I am about to say that some of you may or may not agree with. I am about to voice my opinion on what happened in Tucson, Arizona. If you do not want to read this I am okay with that and you may feel free to stop reading at this moment. However please do know that even Mattie Stepanek was pretty interested in what happened in the world and so do I.

There was a shooting recently in Tucson, Arizona which killed and injured people. What happened in Tucson was a terrible tragedy. People are wanting to point the finger and place blame. A lot of people are wanting to know why. It could have been that the shooter had mental problems or that he was mad at someone. The thing is why he did it does not matter and it won't be considered by the legal system because it does not matter one way or the other. What does matter is that what happened that day, it happened. We do need to have much stricter gun laws and they need to be enforced. Weapons like that of handguns, rifles, knives and ammunition should not be easily accessible to just anyone.

I hate sounding like some politician running for office. I do not want to be in charge of making laws or writing such laws. I wouldn't want anything I say or opinion I have to be placed in the hands of someone that might want to put me in charge. I think that we need to stop pointing the finger. If we need to do so people should consider writing to their Congressmen and voice their displeasure over random acts of violence. I support our President Barack Obama for the speech he made in Tucson, Arizona. We have to give him credit where credit is due. He spoke not only for the victims but for the families and everyone in Tucson during a horrible time.

I just think that it is time to reflect on recent events with an open mind. We all need to stop and take the time to understand that it was not the gun's fault for what happened because guns do not shoot themselves. People need to take responsibility for their actions. It is understandable that people are mad about what happened but pointing the finger is not going to change what happened in Arizona. I think that everything that happened is terrible and I wish that it would not have happened but it did. I know that my opinion may not be liked by some but we all have to find a way to get through our feelings.

I just wanted to share my thoughts and opinions on the tragedy. I hope that you will all know that I will return to my regular scheduled programming of talking about my life at a later date. Thanks for listening everyone and take care everyone.

We Survived The Snow Blizzard....

Hello everyone

Good evening my dear world. How is everyone these days ? I hope you are all well. If you have been watching the news lately you might have heard what went on in my neighborhood. We recently were hit by a snow blizzard...yes a snow blizzard. It was bad and we are still dealing with the ice. On Tuesday my dad and my niece Jeanette went went walking to the Kroger near our house. The reason they had to walk is because nobody could drive with the icy roads. It was slippery as they went walking to the store. Someone gave them a ride on their way back from the store.

They ended up bringing back my mom and I some sandwiches since we had not eaten. My dad started baking like crazy. He was baking cookies, pudding and creme brulee. I could not eat all of that because I would have popped like a over inflated balloon. It was like the North Pole had exploded in our kitchen. There was food everywhere that he made.

Anywho...I had to head back to work today since my work was closed recently due to the weather. I have to tell you something that might just make you laugh out loud. When I got home our driveway is still an ice rink so I went to our grass which I thought was going to be safe but wasn't. My mother and my oldest niece Jeanette were inside the door and I could not walk on the grass with the ice being slippery. I was trying to walk and I failed by just standing on the ice. Well I had my purse and things in my hand and guess what happened next....well I had to sit down and literally scoot myself to the porch so I could get to the front door. My mother and my niece were laughing the entire time while I was scooting myself to the porch since walking was a definite hazard to my health. It took me a minute to get to the porch with all of the ice I had to slide on. The ice was quite cold and sharp of course. I found that I was not liking the entire situation but so there it is. I felt like a fish that had slipped out of a bowl and ended up on the floor. Can things have gotten any more funny than that ??? My dear world I am hoping that this ice will melt but it is supposed to be cold again tonight. I say the end of my day was not a fun one my dear world.

So how are things in your part of the world ?? Is the weather the same in your part of the world ? I hope that you got to have a nice day. I am beginning to wonder what tomorrow will be like. I just wanted to share my moment with you. You might find that I this is not true but I have to tell you that it is and I can tell you that sliding on ice is not a fun thing and it is not an experience I want to relive.

That's all for now. I shall talk to you again soon. Do enjoy the rest of your week ahead. Bye for now my dear world.

Update...And Robert Pattinson

Hello everyone

Good evening everyone. How is everyone today ? I am happy to report that my movie "Eclipse" from the Twilight series won as Favorite Movie at the People's Choice Awards.....I am happy it won. You might want to know that Friday night I went and got the movie "Remember Me" with my favorite actor Robert Pattinson. He is totally great in the movie and I really loved the movie. I can't wait to see Breaking Dawn.

In other news there is talk of snow in the forecast. It is terribly cold in my neck of the woods. I guess we might just get some snow. I hope that it will be coming early Monday morning.

At the moment I am reading the book "White Lies" by Jayne Ann Krentz. The book is quite good and I am enjoying reading it. Jayne is a great writer. The book is well worth reading. I highly recommend it as a book to check out whether its a cold evening or a warm evening.

I do have some sad news to report. My catfish that my family and I had in our aquarium died recently as well as our algae eater. My mom bought some goldfish for our aquarium.

So my dear world how are things in your part of the world ? I hope that all is well. I am hoping that you are enjoying the weekend. I hope that you and your loved ones had a wonderful Christmas season. I had a nice one. I do hope that your New Year has been a good one. My family and I are doing fine.

That's all for now. I will talk to you again soon. Do take care everyone. I shall return.
