I really need to get on here more often and update what's going on. I've just been lazy and then I forgot all about this site, lol.

I'm so glad that Christmas is over & life is getting back to normal. I worked tons of hours over the holidays. Between that & running out of some of my meds I was so very tired that it was a challenge to stay alert.

This Christmas was a good one but kinda a bummer also. We didn't decorate like we ALWAYS do. We did have a tree up but it had no ornaments on it & only had lights cause it's a pre-lit tree, lol. I even bought some new things to decorate with but....I was so busy with work that I didn't have time.

Mom is now living with us but we never see her, well, I don't ever see her. When she's home I'm at work and when I'm home she's at work. Mom is now making & selling candy at her shop so she's been busy doing that. I need to go get her website up & running for her.

I've had the whole weekend off, it was weird! I've not got anything accomplished though. There just isn't enough time in the day!

I've got some bookmarks made and posted on FaceBook. I'm considering making & selling them. I need to make some more. I've also been crocheting more. I've completed one blanket & have 2 more to finish.

I've also got more recipes to post but prob won't for awhile still while I'm trying to get everything else done, lol.

My Mother's Day

My mother's day was pretty good. Yesterday Brandon gave me a bracelet, it's one of those rubbery ones, it says courage on it and it's different colors of brown and white. I love it, it matches most of my clothes that I wear, lol. Then Brandon & Kevin took me to Birmingham to the thrift stores. I found 2 carebears that I didn't have, everytime I go to that one store they usually have carebears that I don't have so I've been buying them and collecting them. I also got some books. Then we went to the other thrift store and I got some books there also. I had a nice time. It was a bit disappointing driving all that way, there wasn't very many books to choose from. The first store had very few, the other store had a little more but a lot of their books were in bad condition, nasty, bent up or tore up. But I did get 11 or 12 that I kept and then some that I posted on book mooch to trade.

Today we got up early and went to Kevin's mom's house. We cooked her and Lisa breakfast. We ate and talked and had a really nice time. We hung out there for a few hours. Then we left and I called my mom, I had already given her her gift. I got her 8 Dean Koontz books that she didn't have. Then we went to Wal-Mart and got a few things that we needed. We looked in the garden section for pond liners but they didn't have any. We came home and I had to lay down for awhile, I was so sleepy and felt bad. My sister came up to visit while she was visiting Daddy. It was nice seeing her, we looked at books and flowers. Then after they left, Kevin helped me, well he done most of the work, lol. He made a flower bed around my mimosa tree. I planted some caladiums and freesias around the tree. I hope it turns out pretty!! I have to go tomorrow and get some potting soil to finish filling it up with dirt. We need to make 2 more, one around my Japanese Tulip tree and one around my Dogwood tree. I still have at least 9 calla lilies to plant, 3 of 3 different colors. Not sure how we'll do the other 2 flower beds, but the area around the dogwood tree is hard to mow around so we'll probably make it kinda big so it can have rounded edges and I'll probably plants my calla lilies in it and most likely won't plant anything with the tulip tree. I can't wait til we get them done and everything comes up!!

WooHoo! My New Frige!!!

I LOVE my new refrigerator!! I've always wanted one like this, it has the freezer on the bottom. The best part is, I got it for about half off! They said it has a blemish but we couldn't find anything wrong with it. The freezer part isn't very big but we kept our other refrigerator too. Now if only we had food in it! lol


I highlighted my hair but it turned a red/orange color. At first I didn't like it but I kinda like it now that the boldness has worn off. I love my do though!! I usually grieve when I cut my hair off but this time I didn't. I think I'm gonna keep this style for awhile.

Going on a Diet

I went to the doctor on Monday and got my lab results back. I have high cholesterol so I have to go on a diet, not to mention I've gained a ton of weight. So, I started dieting on Monday. I'm also keeping a food diary so I can keep track of what I'm eating and how much. If I don't get my cholesterol down I'll have to start taking meds for it and I can't afford to take anymore meds. I go back in 1 month, hopefully I'll have lost some weight by then.

Time for a change

I got a new hair~do

This is before, it came to about the middle of my back

This is after

I like it but it's time consuming. It took me about 45 minutes yesterday to blow dry it and then straighten it and then of course it still wants to curl in some places. But over all, I like it. It's so much softer and healthier looking with all the dried out, dead ends off of it.

Pitty Party...

Life has gotten me down in the past few weeks. I feel like I'm in a rut and can't get out. I don't know what to do about it. Now, I'm sick once again, yay me! It seems every time I turn around I'm sick with something. It's awful! I'm so tired, I don't want to do anything but sleep. I don't even want to read a book and that is very unusual for me! I made a 70 on my Micro test cause I just don't have the energy to study, let alone pay attention to what I'm doing. I hate getting crappy grades, it's just that much harder that I have to work to get my gpa back up. I don't know what to do about it. Hopefully when this semester ends next month, I'll begin to get better and stop being so sick all the time. There are so many things that I want to do, like get back into scrapbooking and card making, read some of the books on my shelf, go explore some new places, cook some really good things, get my craft room fixed up. I really really want to start exercising so I can maybe lose some weight but I just have no motovation what so ever to get up and do it! I have a learn to belly dance cd but I've not tried it yet, it might be pretty cool, lol. Yeah, a fat person belly dancing, soo sexy! (Not) I think i would like to join a gym, think I'll check into it!!
