My Life is Now Complete!

on December 13, 2006 - 5:07am

I FINALLY got to see the Oprah performance and I've gotta say his voice was pure and absolutely PERFECT! Wow! Thank you Nay for capturing all of these awesome performances and interviews. Without you I would be missing so much! Wow!

I'll leave it at that! What a way to start a day!

Boy do I have a busy weekend ahead! Christmas Gala on Friday night, my husband's work christmas party on Saturday night and the Jags/Colts game on Sunday. I could do without the parties but I can't wait for the game! Every year we get invited to sit in the skybox of one of my husband's friends. It is sooo fun! Hopefully it will be a good game. If we were to lose to anyone, I would want it to be the Colts as I am originally from Indy.

So, my friend and I decided at lunch on Friday that we wanted to get tattoos. So, we did. I now have a ladybug on my left foot and everytime I look down I feel like I need to swat it off. Not used to it yet. I have one on my hip already (my mom and I got them at the same time) and this one hurt BIG TIME! I guess there isn't a whole lot of meat on the top of your foot. I couldn't wait for it to be over with.

Confession: I BRIEFLY thought about getting a Josh smiley! I did! How cute would that have been? I knew my husband was going to be upset with me for getting one and if it was Josh related he would probably have divorced me. Not really, but it would not have been pretty.

Well, I guess I better get to work! Have a wonderful day!

I Love My Boss.....(today anyway) :)

on December 1, 2006 - 5:51am

First thing this morning, my boss asks me if I have a minute to chat and he starts to tell me about his evening last night.

He hasn't been feeling well lately and has had some rough days at work, so he told his wife that he just wanted to "chill" for the evening. So, he got a glass of wine and went to his CD collection and he said he instantly thought of me. He picked out "Awake", which I purchased for him, and sat on his back porch with Josh cranked.

It is SO FREAKIN' COOL that he he likes Josh like that. His favorite is "Awake", but loves them all.

One more thing, then I need to get to work. We traveled together to a new store opening this spring and he made sure that both of Josh's CDs were in the mix in the car. How sweet!

Anyhoo, gotta get to work. So glad it's Friday. I'm feeling a little better today, so hopefully I get back to normal this weekend. Probably taking Cameron to see Santa and we will finally get our tree up. more thing. My dad got a phone call last night from the wife of a very good friend of his. He had a massive heart attack on Tuesday and they pulled life support yesterday. When my mother was alive, she and dad would go boating with them a lot. Their boats were docked right next to each other for years. My mom and Ray used to pick at each other so much that it would sometimes turn into really silly arguments. His wife, Suzie, told dad that mom now has someone to pick on again when Ray joins her in heaven. Dad absolutely lost it! He hasn't cried like that for mom in a long time (at least that I know about). Anyway, he is expected to pass on any day and I will be there to support dad at the funeral. I really have to go. My boss is cool, but not that cool! ;)

Feeling like CRAP

on November 30, 2006 - 7:04am

Man! I wish I felt better. Even blasting Josh on the way in to work this morning didn't do the trick. Our boss came in with a nasty cold and somehow, I was the one that got it. I gave blood yesterday and probably shouldn't have since I wasn't feeling well. I think I might be at the peak of this thing and hopefully will start to feel better.

So Cameron choked the cat (Winslow) last night. I went into his room to make sure he was in bed and he had the cat pinned on the floor with his hands around his neck! What is THAT all about???? He and that cat are best buds. The cat was actually choking!

I was so shocked to see it that I scared Cameron half to death with my reaction. I was shaking I was so upset. Why do kids do things like that? Is it curiousity? He got into a heap of trouble for it though, so I'm almost positive he won't do it again. We still need to watch him around the cat for awhile though.

Never in a million years would I think I could do this, but I did! I HELD IN MY HANDS A TARANTULA! We went over to my sister-in-law's house for Thanksgiving and her step-son has 3 of them (one fully grown and two babies). I guess the glass of wine I had emboldened me, so I said, WHY NOT?

See, spiders freak me out. We have a lot of them in our house because we live in a heavily wooded area. They are everywhere. I typically will leave the room and let someone else deal with it when I see one. So, for me to look at this thing through glass was a miracle of it's own!

He didn't move much other than when he started to rub his legs against his body as a defense mechanism. That releases the tiny hairs (eeeuuuwwwww) and they make you itch. So very cool! There are even pictures; so I have PROOF! :)

Anyway, guess I better get to work.

Random thoughts.....

on November 25, 2006 - 6:30am

Edited: When I read through this once I posted it, I realized that I chose "Happy" as my mood. How funny is that??? There was nothing happy about this post! Tried to change it to "OK" but it wouldn't let me. Oh well!

I need to get my son outside in this beautiful weather but all I really want to do is hang out on FOJG, catch up on all of Josh's recent performances and dream about him. Sometimes I literally have to force myself away from the computer long enough to do what I need to do. I don't feel comfortable visiting FOJG when my HOG is home. 4 years ago, he thought it was cute that I liked Josh so much, but I think he is a little put out by it now. Doesn't help that our marriage is going down the tubes (one doesn't have to do with the other).

Speaking of my, I'm not going to get into that right now. Let's just say that I simply don't like him. It's as simple (and as complicated) as that.

Thanksgiving was nice. We went over to my sister-in-law's house and she did a fantastic job pulling it all together. I had to also spend it with my husbands ex-wife and her husband. It's an amicable (sp?) relationship, which is wonderful for their son.

For some reason, this year has been the hardest for me with mom gone. She has been gone for 6 years, but it hasn't hurt like this in several years. My dad doesn't want to have anything to do with the very extended family, so he wasn't around. All of the traditions that our family had - cooking while watching the parade - eating at 1:00 and then laying around the house for the rest of the day. I miss that so much. It was always just my mom, dad and I for the holidays because all of our family lived far away. It was very comfortable. I miss it very much.

I need to get myself psyched for Christmas for Cameron. This is th efirst year he is really going to understand it and enjoy it for more than just presents. I need to channel my emotions from missing Mom into something positive for Cameron.
