It's a sad day when I have the bikini line that's been shaved and is growing back in itch.... not because I shaved to be sexy for my hubby but because I had an ob/gyn appointment this past week. I could have made a fur lined parka with my leg hairs....

That's just gross and sad!

the crying game...

It's a good thing that things come in three's... that way I can cry once and move on!

1. My hubby broke my heart
2. My daughter's dog is eating my puppy that I love dearly and I have to give her up
3. I have a great friend who told me how wonderful I am

Work In Progress

So I had this brilliant idea and finally sketched it out on paper....

Then we started our work in progress. This was all for my kiddo so dang right I made her help!!!! She is waaaaay over painting after doing her room.... She picked a bright orange and green... it turned out way cute.

Now I am off to go get her dresser and bed so I can put those together and then move her TV into her wall unit and then start building the other half.... yes, I chose to do this :-)

So far so good!

Well I have to stuck to my deal so far...

I started building a wall unit thing for my kiddo today. We should have it done, painted and put up tomorrow. I will post pictures. This covers my doing something for someone else and myself. It will be a great sense of accomplishment.

Also I went to my best friends house on the 1st and we weighed in so the workouts begin tomorrow! I will start with walking my dogs so I can wear their butts out so they stop dog fighting!!!!! I swear!

Happy New Year!!!!

I wish all a great and prosperous New Year!

Voice Mails from the Edge....

A month or so ago, my brother broke his computer. Since I lost my job this past summer, I don't have access to parts and such so I have been doing what I can when I can. Mind you, this was a computer that I had given to my brother (for FREE).... My brother also doesn't work and just sponges off my mom (granted she lets him which ticks me off also....) So here is the string of voice mails that I received and the incidents that have led up to them...

Wed. morning around 8:30. My phone rang but I was in the shower...
VM from my brother:


yep, no hello, no good morning, no thanks, no please.... story of my brother....

Wed. 1:30pm the phone rings and it's him but I choose not to answer it because I have a million things going along with the fact that I was working on another pc for him and his earlier vm ticked me off....

"Sis this business is booming and I have a million emails that I haven't checked and I really need to get in contact with people about my business. I can't do anything because I am waiting on you!"

Wed. 3:00pm I am really not answering the phone because I was taught that if I didn't have anything nice to say, don't speak!

"some common courtesy as far as I was brought up means that if you own a cell phone you will either answer the damn thing or you will return a call within 24 hours. Just thought I would gives you a heads up on that deal."

Thurs. 9:39am Aparently my mom said something to him about me being under a lot of stress and what he did was wrong

"hey sis I just want to tell you that I love you and am on your side. Anything that I can do to help you is what I would like to be doing. I would like us to be on the same page. This business that I opened up is booming and I can't do everything by myself because I would like you to be my friend and partner on this. We can be grabbing cash like everyone else is doing.

Brother and sister teamed up. I would really like it if you and I got along a little better and do some of the stuff like friends do and accomplish goals. I know you are inteligent and are capable. I don't know what you think of me but I know that I am inteligent and capable as well. I can tell stories about everything that I have set my mind to do I have done that.

It's booming and there is money to be made. These advertisements show a full staff. I'm not going to sit here and judge them but they aren't as cool as us. It doesn't take a bunch of cash to get this going. I don't know why they are able to do this. People want to buy medicine no matter what. It's like alcohol. I would like you to jump on board and help me out. Help us out. We need to have a niche in this before it gets out of control.

I wish your spirits were up. I love you. I'm your brother and we won't always get along but I love you."

My take on it is he is only in contact with me now because he needs something. Side note, he has blown up at the family before and NEVER has apologized yet I have witnessed him saying sorry to almost strangers countless times. We as his family OWE him everything.

5:30pm I didn't have my phone on me because I was at a holiday party for my husbands work.

"hey there is a city council meeting tonight at 6. Want to go?"

This is for his medical marijuana stuff which makes my skin crawl. If you indulge, I don't care but I don't and the last thing I want to do with my life is surround myself with a bunch of junkies! This entire thing is also a sore spot with me because he has my mom's house overran with strangers and plants, etc..... she lost her sanctuary...

Friday morning 8:54 am Aparently my mom said something to him again....

"Hey sis you can't demand an apology from somebody. I don't even know what I am supposed to be apologizing for. I have been sitting here trying to get ahold of you and you are ignoring me so that. So if you don't think that is causing a problem what the hell. I don't know what I am supposed to be apologizing for. You know me, I would apologize if I were in the wrong. But because you are my sister and I love you I am going to go ahead and apologize. With you being silent, I am not getting any wiser on what I am supposed to apologize for.

So you need to quit playing a game and talk to me if you want to be my friend. If you don't, you are still my sister. But you are putting a lot of uncomfort here and it's not my deal. This is your stuff.

I apologize now WHAT AM I APOLOGIZING FOR??? (This is in caps because he was screaming)"

Do you ever think....

that "God" gets bored with all the idiots in the world like we do and turns His attention to the 'strong' to see how much they will actually put up with????
