Would you ever.....?

Go in a store and ask a cashier.....Do I have a hole in my pants right here and proceed to turn around and show him your butt and put your fingers there on your butt cheek???!!! And then when he looked and said "No" She said omg my friend lied to me!! She said I had a big hole in my pants!!
OMG yep that's what some lady did to Leon earlier tonight at work!! LOL..sorry but there is NO way that I would ever go into a store and ask a complete stranger and especially not a strange guy that I don't know if I had a hole in my pants on my butt!! Good grief what are people thinking???!! Really??!!!


My oldest son got a job today!! So proud of him!

I am a very proud and happy mother today!! My son who is soon to be 18, went out and got an application last night, brought it back today for his interview and got hired!! He starts tonight around 5! So happy and proud of him!! 


Funny how things happen by accident, he went up there with his friend who was wanting to get hired but he wasn't old enough yet so the guy asked Jared how old he was and he told him and he said here ya go come back tomorrow afternoon!!! How awesome is that??!! Its at a restaurant and the greatest thing is, its about 2-3 blocks from here so he can walk!! Yay I don't have to take him!! Just down a little in the same shopping center where hubby works! Pretty cool!

Nintendo 64 instead of the wii? Who would of thought?? LOL

Well good grief!!! When Leon and Jared first mentioned buying a nintendo 64 (we use to have one years ago) I thought no the rest of the kids aren't going to like it...they are into the gamecube and the wii. But I gave in and spent a whopping $20 on the nintendo 64 from the  pawn shop and a few games for $3 each. They were pretty cool games, like Mario and Pokemon and Donkey Kong but we need the expansion thing for the DK which we will go get for a whopping $2 later. Anyway, my youngest son Sean, who is very very picky on the systems and games that he plays....is in there playing the 64 this morning!! I didn't get woke up to hollering and bickering over whose got what and who did that and so forth!!! I got to sleep in..until 8! then layed back down trying to get rid of the headache...didn't work but anyway he's in there being quiet!! I love it!! No bickering and  pestering so far today! I will be going back to the pawn shops along with my movie hunting to buy more movies for $2 each and also be looking for 64 games for $3 each!! Wow I am just still in shock that he likes it that much!! He's 12...so its just shocking to me that he would like that better then the wii with Sims Agents which he wanted and loves too..Its hopefully going to be a quiet day/weekend..I can keep hoping b/c this headache and feeling like I'm going to get sick completely sucks!

Bargains at the Pawn Shop

So today we went into 2 pawn shops, there are a couple more here in town but really haven't checked them out yet. The first one they had a nintendo 64 for $25 but geez the games for them was freaking $8 each!! That just sounded to high for me. So we went to the other pawn shop and we found a nintendo 64 for $20 and not only that but the games was only $3 each!! So one of my son's and hubby picked out 6 games for it and 2 memory card things for it. Then I looked at the movies and got 3 of them for $2 each. Fantastic 4, Charlie's Angels Full Throttle and Just Married. I couldn't resist.
 
So anyway I am thinking that every week I will go to the pawn shops and get a few movies, one of them has all the friends DVD's seasons for $2 each so I might get a couple of those every week and eventually have them all and a few others too. I figure $2 isn't that much and why not get them used as long as they look good still shouldn't be a problem rather then buying new for $10 or whatever each.
 
While we were out I noticed 2 more thrift shops here in town! I was kinda shocked about that because this isn't that big of a town, definitely not a "city" so for us to have 4 or so thrift stores just kinda shocks me but anyway might make my way into one or both of the new ones next week too and look to see what kind of bargains I can find in there.
 
Jesse got a pair of jeans with pink something another lol on the back pockets for $5 from Dollar General today. They were like $10 or more. Love finding bargains. And we got a few of the Valentines clearance items like the stickers that was 50cents each. She loves stickers...takes after me :)
 


Beautiful weather out again today....

I am so glad that its calmed down here and its nice and pretty out..well not always pretty, partly cloudy for half of the day but its been so nice out in the lower 70s...I absolutely love this kind of weather and really wish that it could stay these temps all year around!
 
Hopefully wherever you all are, your having great weather and enjoying it :)
Have a great weekend everyone..lots of things to do this weekend, work being one of them...ugh! Need to get caught up and organize my work here in my home office..fun fun!

quiz - Does clutter control you?

Here is today's taking action on care2.com its about clutter...you can take the quiz and see what your score is...I'm not too bad but I do need to de-clutter soon!

http://www.care2.com/greenliving/quiz-does-clutter-control-you.html

Busy but productive day

Today I got some work done, probably not as much as I could of or should of but a lot. It doesn't help that the boss jumps from this task to the next one and then gives a list of things and then jumps back to the 3rd one on the list and then jumps back and forth all over the place so yea a few things got left out but will get them done tomorrow. Its a stressful job, of course probably anyone that is in the real estate field will tell you its a stressful job no matter what position your in...real estate is just stressful period! Dealing with banks, clients, and everyone else...
 
I got things done, kids came home, made supper, ate, watched TV and relaxed while eating. Watched Don't Forget the Lyrics  Love that show!! Then I made the mistake of turning it on HLN and watching a little of Issues with Jane Velez Mitchell and don't get me wrong..I love her!! She's great...its just I made the mistake of listening to all the heart breaking stories that are currently going on. Its upsetting to hear about the stories and to know that things could of been prevented was wasn't because someone somewhere wasn't doing their job!! Whether it was because they were lazy or overworked and underpaid and just didn't care or whatever the reasons, it could of been avoided. Story that comes to mind when I say this is the one about the dad and the son that was found in a truck with fumes of acid coming out of it and a dead 10 year old twin girl in a bag in the back of the truck!!! And the dad was the "adoptive" parent and Jane said that the biological aunt and uncle had been fighting for awhile and had a lawyer to get custody of the kids but for some reason the judge wasn't allowing it and then to top it off the "adoptive parents" was tying up the kids and the little girl was made to stay in the bath tub???? And was tied up with duct tape and only undone to eat??!!! How freaking outrageous is that???? And last week Thursday I believe there was an investigator that went to the house and then another one on Saturday or so but he/she didn't go in the house and see the twins!!!! What the hell???!!!! If I was either one of the investigators I would feel horrible and honestly would feel that I let the kids down by not doing my damn job and goign in there and making sure that everything was alright!!! I thought that when you call in an abuse hotline or something like that that they were supposed to actually go and check it out and do something???? Guess not and this was in Florida and then the idiot mom that shot both of her teens for being mouthy and killed the 2 of them for freaking being mouthy was in Florida too!!!! What the hell is going on with that???? Just disturbing and freaking sickening if you ask me!!!! 
 

Help and click today :)

Good evening everyone,
 
I know that we all are busy busy these days and usually at least for myself, don't ever get everything done that I was wanting to do in a day. But here lately I have been taking about 2 minutes out of my busy day and schedule to click on 2 sites and help out. I don't have a lot of money to donate to any one program or anything but I believe and hope that I am right when these sites like http://www.thehungersite.com say that when you click on the different things that it helps, I really hope that they are true because I have been doing my best lately to help in that way and also on the site http://www.care2.com I figure its the least that I can do to take out 1-2 minutes out of my busy day or evening and click on the things and help the kids, women and animals. Won't you do the same too and help out?
 
Have a great evening.

Love the clouds and today's weather

It was mid 60s and feeling good today..cloudy mostly all day but oh well it felt good out. Love the clouds and sky and will start taking pictures every evening again..missed doing that :) Here's one from earlier tonight

Happy Birthday to my brother Jared!!

Today is my brother Jared's birthday. I hope that he had a great day.
I miss him and love him so much. He's a great person, wonderful dad and a great brother  Hope to see him soon and my adorable nephew that definitely takes after him!

Temps warming up thank goodness!!

Love the weather this week so far. It was cloudy out today but the temp was perfect!! Mid 60's and the same for tomorrow and through the next 5 days or so its supposed to be mid 60s through mid 70s!! That is just the perfect weather I think. Not to chilly and not to warm.
 
I hope it stays like that for a while...so glad that the snow and ice are gone at least for now and hopefully will stay gone until the end of the year..we will see.

Could Eating Bugs Help Slow Climate Change?

So I was doing my clicking for today, I went to thehungersite.com and then to care2.com and as I was done with the clicking there is always a daily action in which you can do too. I went there and that was the title of it today... Could Eating Bugs Help Slow Climate Change?
 
My first reaction was Yuck!! And ewe!! I don't think that I would or could do that. I know that they are probably right when they say that it could help the environment and such and that other countries are doing this etc etc but I don't think that there is any way that I would be able to deal with eating bugs  instead of something like hamburgers or pizza or anything else that I am use to eating...just wouldn't be the same. And I'm not saying that I am "too good" to do it...just the thought of it makes me want to get sick. I have a weak stomach as it is.
 
So what is your thoughts on this? Interested or repulsed like me!

Matt Damon - 2 week rule keeps strong marriage



Matt Damon is one busy guy. With two films released back-to-back and another two films in production, how does the actor stay close with his kids and keep the romance alive with his wifeLuciana?
“We have a two-week rule,” Damon, 40, told PEOPLE Saturday at a press conference for his new movie The Adjustment Bureau in New York. “We don’t allow ourselves to be apart.”
“When I did True Grit, I asked Joel and Ethan[Coen] to board the movie so that I was never away from home for more than a week and they did that,” he says. “So I was working like two days a week and I would fly back [home].”
If works calls for uprooting the family away from home in New York City, Damon will pack his suitcases and take his entire brood of daughters — Alexia, 12, Isabella, 4½, Gia, 2½, and Stellaalmost 4 months — with him. “I just took this big movie in L.A. and we’re all there together,” he says.
With a balanced work and family life, Damon says he’s lucky not to carry the burden of sucking up to Lucy for being an absent husband. “We really don’t need those big dramatic moments running home with flowers shirtless,” he jokes.
In his upcoming romantic thriller The Adjustment Bureau — in theaters March 4 — Damon stars as a politician who is forced to fight for his own fate. In reality, he believes his destiny led him to meeting Lucy in 2003.
“There was Werner Herzog film called Rescue Dawn that Christian Bale did and I was really strongly considering it. Instead I met with the Farrelly brothers. I remember talking with my mother and she said, ‘You know, you don’t always have to go into a jungle and lose a bunch of weight. You’re allowed to have a little fun.’ And I did the Farrelly brothers movie [Stuck on You] and that was where I met my wife,” he explained. “So four kids later, that was a pretty fateful decision!”
– Paul Chi

I love Matt!! I think that he's a very very talented person and I love his movies and OMG I can't believe that he has all daughters!! Poor guy!! LOL....Congrats to them on their marriage and newest daughter.

YOU HAVE THE POWER TO SUCCEED



Truth isn't a matter of your personal viewpoint.
Learn to see things as they really are, not as you imagine they are.

Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or who says it.
No matter what you believe, it never changes the facts.
If they are there, the facts always speak for themselves.

The truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of people.
If sixty million people say a foolish thing, it's still a foolish thing.

The sky is no less blue because the blind man does not see it.



This is still from the morning coffee...just decided to break it up into 3 pieces so it wasn't so long.

Morning Coffee - Squeeze the anger out of your life



Squeeze Anger Out of Your Life
by Jane Powell
“Infuse tranquility into your life and relationships.”
Accepting responsibility for what you are feeling is hard, especially when what you are feeling is anger. If you leave angry feelings unresolved, they may turn into resentment, envy, jealousy, revenge and, eventually, hatred. These emotions also lie at the root of depression. And, who wants that?
Is there something that repeatedly makes your blood boil, that you end up screaming and yelling about, every time the subject comes up?
Ask yourself if you’re overreacting or taking something too seriously. If you still feel your anger is justified, change your response. The relief that comes after screaming and yelling is short lived.
Look for more constructive ways to vent. For starters, try talking your way through your anger, instead of reacting with rage.
Be proactive, take charge, be calm and bask in the light of serenity.

Valentines Day - Something special or just another day?

Well today was my 16th wedding anniversary...a few mixed feelings going on here. Well actually 15 if you count the year that he went off and did his own thing with another woman!! We were married and 5 weeks later, poof he decides that he's going to up and leave. At the time I didn't realize or even consider that I was already pregnant. And it wasn't until my son Christopher Brian was a couple of months old before he came back into the picture. And not only that, but the prick made us get a paternity test!!! The nerve of him wanting my son to get a paternity test when HE was the one out cheating!!! What a man!! Should of known and ended it then and there but because of my son I didn't...sometimes if I could turn back time...I love my children and wouldn't trade them for anything in the world...but the man that I married...I'm not happy, haven't been for awhile and I don't love him. So its basically just another day here...It use to actually mean something but not so much anymore. He's not the one that I love and he knows it, I have been completely upfront and honest with him...he knows my feelings, he's not listening to what I say but I have told him flat out I don't love him anymore.
 
I hope that all of you that are in love and living a happy life enjoyed today and spent it with the ones that you love....so Happy Valentines everyone...is it over yet?? 
 
 

The Bachelor - FINALLY a great night!!!!

So if you have been keeping up with the bachelor and watching tonight then you probably already know what or rather who I am referring too!! Yes it was an awesome show tonight. I can see the stress on all the ladies faces and on Brad's too and that is just heartbreaking because I just feel for them all. It takes a lot I am sure to put your feelings and heart out there on the line with someone that you have known for such a short amount of time.
 
I must say that I didn't like what Ashley did at the photo shoot!! I was shocked...I didn't think that she would of done that..at least she covered them with shells but still..I was shocked! Then the thing with the other girl Chantel O I think it was (I get those two Chantel and Shauntel mixed up all the time) well the one that did the photo shoot and started crying and having a conniption when he gave the rose to Ashley on the group date instead of her...I don't know, I didn't like that at all...just her attitude right there I didn't care for.
 
BUT the way that Michelle took over and what she did at the photo shoot with him...she reeled him in hook, line and sinker and that was just not right the way that she took him over and was all over him..ick! I knew that had to be the end of her because I thought that he was smarter then that and could see right through her and sure enough....I got my wish and she's gone!! The wicked ole witch is gone! Finally!!! 
 
Once he said that he didn't want to do the cocktail party and just wanted to get on with it...I had a feeling it was her b/c of the way that she did him on the group date and I just don't think that there was ever a connection more then a physical one like he said...it would of worn off eventually...yep!! He finally did some soul searching and realized that she was just there for attention and nothing else. She didn't even cry or anything on the limo out so I just think that she was fake and just not right for him at all.

Taylor Lautner turned 19 Friday Feb 11th :)



I completely agree with all of these!! LOL

Top 10 reasons it's perfectly acceptable to love Taylor if you're not a teen: 

1. The smile: Whether it's full wattage or his sexy half smile, there's no shame in melting a little at the sight of those pearly whites. 

2. He doesn't really look like a teenager: Throw that boy in a suit, and he'd fool us for mid-twenties any day. See No. 8.

3. His body: Let's be honest, those abs do not belong on a teenager. After bulking up to save his role in "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," it's been speculated that his new frame may have actually saved his entire career. 

4. He has artistic integrity: We're not complaining that the Teen Wolf had his shirt off for the majority of "New Moon," but that doesn't mean he's going to be that shirtless guy in every movie. He actively refused to bare his chest in "Valentine's Day," because he failed to see any relevance in the script. No gratuitous nudity here -- Taylor has gone on record saying he won't strip down for a role unless it specifically calls for it.

5. His paycheck: Lautner's wallet got a boost in 2010, as he out-earned even his "Twilight" nemesis, Robert Pattinson. By $6 million, to be exact.

6. His hair: It's always perfectly coiffed in that "I don't even have to try" kind of way. We doubt he wakes up with that kind of hair in the morning, but it still looks effortless. When he's not rockin' the Jacob Black wig, that is.

7. He started acting at age nine: So really, that makes him way older in the business, right? And he's totally not screwed up yet, either!

8. He's grounded: Spending many years practicing martial arts undoubtedly taught him discipline. He lives with his family (he is only 19) and still does his share of pitching in around the house. No lack of work ethic in this boy. 

8. Taylor Swift dated him: And then she dated Jake Gyllenhaal, who just turned 30. if you average the two ages you get 24.5, which is is a totally respectable age and makes us feel significantly less creepy.

9.  His car: Taylor owns a BMW 5 series with tinted windows. He can take us out for a night on the town in that ride anytime. 

10. He's still a werewolf: For the time being, at least. It only stands to reason that werewolves and cougars are a match made in heaven.
