I made it through the kids' spring break!!! Wow. It had snuck (is that a word???) up on my so fast. I guess 'cause it's so early here. It's so early that the Friday they got out of school, we had 4 inches of snow! Then the rest of the break we had 70+ degree weather, sunshine, and of course, storms. In fact, the morning after Atlanta was hit, a funnel cloud went over (apparently--I SLEPT THROUGH IT!!! my weather radio NEVER EVEN WENT OFF and the town sirens didn't either!!!). The tornado ended up touching down just a few miles from here...

Now I need a spring break! Where should I go??? Yeah right. With hubby jetting all over the planet for work, I am pretty well stuck here. One of these days Cinderelly will get to go to the ball!!! hahaha

Hmmmm...what else...ummmmm....I dunno...I've been reading so much lately that I haven't really had any adventures to report I guess I'm off to check on everyone else's!!!

I'm better....

on March 6, 2008 - 9:54pm

Okay. I don't know what it is about it, but just putting my thoughts out on the journal must've helped. I've felt much better today. I do appreciate the comments I received!

My "middle" daughter turned 6 today. We just had a cozy little family party. She's so cute when she opens her gifts! She's so grateful for every single present. No matter what it is she gets the sweetest smile on her face, jumps up, and squeezes the giver's neck. THOSE are the moments I LIVE for!!!! Honestly, I have to brag on all 3 of my girls for being grateful when someone gives them something. I cannot say I loved everything I ever got for my birthday as a child. However, I am thankful that I have lived long enough to appreciate the nightgowns and "cutesy" socks my aunt gave me seemingly every year and the odd-ball, off-the-wall gifts my parents gave me. Those were the ones I ended up treasuring the most later on! And I would LOVE it if someone gave me a new nightgown every year, now! LOL

Hubby needs the computer and my time's up! hahaha Goodnight!

I really want to get over this...

on March 5, 2008 - 10:47pm

I really do. And I'm not talking about my stupid cold. I don't want to be the whiney one. I just want to know if there's really a place for me here at FOJG anymore...I'm not begging for attention or anything like that. I just cannot get over the disappointment I felt over last Monday's "appearance". It is so hard to try to live the way I want to anymore without feeling like there's absolutely nowhere left that I can feel free to do so without some kind of backlash. Josh's music and FOJG were where I turned to "get away" from everyday stressors. It always felt like a "safe" place to be as far as not too much controversy and relatively clean atmosphere. For the most part I didn't have to worry about bad language or outside pressures or any every day stress stuff. It was my oasis, I guess. Josh's music to me, as I know it is to many, is so close to my heart...and his voice carried it straight there. I stumbled across the video of that "appearance" last week and my heart is so broken. I am not so stupid as to think that I could live in a bubble--or put someone else in one, for that matter. Yes, I realize that Josh can choose to do whatever he may. But why should I be so afraid to voice my opinion on the boards? I try to get along with everyone; I am not out to make any enemies, but I know if I say too much, that's what I'd end up with. Besides, I have so many people that dump their problems on me (not that I don't want to be supportive) and family members that constantly want to drag me into the middle of every single family feud (flattering as it might should be to be known as a 'peacemaker', it gets ridiculously exhausting)the last place I needed strife was here. I wish so badly that I didn't feel like this...

Once again, I'm at a loss for any more words....maybe I should try rewriting Taylor Swift's song "Teardrops on my Guitar" and change it to say "he's the reason for the teardrops on my keyboard"! hahaha

Sorry. Just tryin' to find my sense of humor...

Hoping Josh has a happy birthday.

I'm really not in a great mood today, so I won't hang around to get it all over everywhere! And with all the drama around here right now, I'm sure I'd only get more frustrated anyway!

Please send hugs my way! Hopefully I'll be better tomorrow...

Just my opinion...

on February 26, 2008 - 9:43am

Since I have recently "found my words", I figure I'll take 'em for a ride...

Call me a prude (though I've always thought that had to be a persnickety old grouchy lady--which I am NOT! LOL) but I hate that Josh was in that stupid waste of film that Jimmy Kimmel did... I'm not a huge fan of Kimmel's--only like it that he's a fan of Josh's, so I didn't see it on the show. I stumbled on it here on the boards, and stupidly watched it as I would a trainwreck! Why does vulgarity seem to always = "funny" in society? I appreciate Josh's real, goofy, silly humor. The creative stuff. Even the "panda song" wasn't like this latest one! Though it's not something I wanted to watch over and over, nor would I let my kids watch it, I do laugh when I see a panda! But I mean, how creative to you have to be to use profanity??? I realize I'm probably making a "name" for myself by saying this...but I am entitled to my opinion. I didn't want to cause a huge 'deal' on the forum boards and upset everybody. But I really felt the need to say what I feel so strongly.

Other than that, I am having a decent day...getting a lot accomplished, and feeling good about it! Oh, and I did get in my Raise 27 birthday donation earlier, too!

Well, I think hubby has come home for his lunch! Time to go! I need to get back to work on the laundry, anyway!
