Yesterday evening Wild Child kept pestering her kitten on the porch and mean ol' Scrappy told her to leave it alone or she was going to get a "butt smack." Well...the situation ended with a "butt smack." Wild Child marched in the house...then turned back, opened the door, and said, "Mommy...you're FIRED!"

On the way home (in the rain) we passed Chapel Hill and Manga Dork practically threw herself out the car window. Do you know why?
BTW...I have a new obsession. First it was Orange County Housewives...then NYC...I never really got into Atlanta...and now...NEW JERSEY! I love them...they are so funny and interesting. You HAVE to give in and check them out on Tuesdays at 10pm on Bravo...it will have you saying "Buh-bees" and "Fabulous" and maybe even "Delicious and Juicy." My fave is Teresa. Last night one of them went in "Props for Today" in NYC....I was practically bouncing off the couch saying "I WAS IN THERE!" My mom now thinks I have went off the deep end...

On Day #1 we went to my fave scrap shop in town...they were closing and going on-line only! Then we went to my fave used book store...I got 2 Nicholas Sparks books. We ended the day at the awesome park...I even played a little tennis.
On Day #2 we headed for the beach!
We love Emerald Isle.
I get so excited when we drive over the Atlantic Intracostal Waterway!

DO NOT EVEN ATTEMPT TO WATCH THIS MOVIE UNLESS YOU ARE EXTREMELY HAPPY! I'm talking "It's my birthday and I just won the lottery" happy! This movie is haunting and thought provoking. It will tear your heart out and stomp on it...a couple times. I do suggest you watch it...just go into it happy! You feel what the characters are feeling. Beware of the "WHAT IF" game...this is where the tears fell the MOST! In the end...I felt it was one of the best I have seen in awhile. Just give it time to put everything together.
If you've seen it...What did you think?

One week til I go to Lil Sis's house!
Thursday, May 14, 2009
MIL will not let it go that I am going to AI concert and didn't invite SIL. SIL called yesterday and gave me the "I didn't know anything about it" line and said she would have liked to take Niece. I found out that SIL and MIL both talked to Dr. Hubby's aunt that is going with me yesterday. Honestly if they keep that up no one is going to want to do anything with me...cause they get "guilt tripped" about not inviting those two also. Why is it so hard for them to let me do things without including them? Argh.
I am planning on going to the beach for a 3 day weekend with the same aunt...SIL told her yesterday that she wants to plan a beach trip with her. MIL knew about the beach trip and has told SIL. SIL said that she can't do it on a weekend....so we need to go during the week. Argh. A perfect example of why I don't plan anything with her anymore. She has to change EVERYTHING to suit her. Sorry you had to hear more about them...I just needed to vent.
I was SO sad last night when Danny left AI. And I must add...I think the guest performers should not be allowed to show "favoritism" for any of the contestants. Katy Perry's cape with "Adam Lambert" on it was tacky and in poor taste. Not that I expect much from her anyway.

My trip to my parents' home for Mother's Day was hard. It was hard to only get to see them for 15 hours and then come home. I miss Lil Sis so much I can't type this sentence without tearing up. My grandparents have quit living and only talk about death and sickness..I came home and had a "melt down."
I miss my parents...I miss my sis...I miss my grandparents...I miss my side of the family...I miss BFF Ruth...I miss getting to go to events regularly for my family.
Then when I came home I pulled into our driveway...I found every flaw possible...I looked for them...I found a problem and I took it on myself...I found everything that needed to be done and became obsessed with how it was never going to get done because I couldn't do anything about it.
I scared my mom....I worried my husband...I hurt Manga Dork's feelings...I was ugly and I was going to wallow in it. How did my inlaws react? They somehow decided it was all about them and gave me guilt trips about "not liking them"..."not wanting them here"..."not feeling like they are important"..."not asking SIL to go to AI concert." Boy...that was not helpful at all. I became numb and retreated inside myself.
I was selfish...and now I am over it. Time to move on...

On Sundaywe went to breakfast with BIL's family at Bob Evans...more bad food! It was at Bob Evans that the most horrible thing happened....something that had only happened maybe one time before...something that threatened to ruin the day...my heart started pounding...then I could do nothing but throw up my hands, sigh, and declare...
"My camera battery is DEAD!" Argh.
My kids gave me scrapbook stuff and some cute trinkets from Micheals...Dr. Hubby gave me an air conditioner for the scrappy schoolhouse and 2 hanging baskets (geraniums).
We gave my mom chocolate and a $50 gift card to Michaels. We gave MIL a rose bush and binoculars...this is what she told Dr. Hubby she wanted! Now I just need window blinds for our house..LOL!
Happy Belated Mom's Day to all the great mom's here in BlogWorld!

Good News: Maybe this medicine will help me not be so sluggish and fatigued all the time!
Good News: On August 22 Manga Dork and I will be attending the American Idols Live Concert with Cousins Kay-Kay & B and their mom in Pittsburgh, PA.
Bad News: I mistakenly (is that a word) got 4 tickets instead of 5.

Last week's weight was 215.0
This week's weight is 208.6!
I lost 6.4 pounds this week!
I know that the first week is mostly water BUT it still feels good!
My BMI last week was 40.58
This week it is 39.38...I am still obese.
I hate the word "obese"...it is in the same category as "snot" and "vomit" LOL!
I am only 3.6 pounds away from my goal to lose 10 pounds by May 31st!
How did your #s look this morning?
The person who lost the most will receive a handmade card from me!
But you had to beat me too!
*Note...I do not measure my foods in the beginning...I wait until I start reaching the first plateau.
Breakfast: 2 Special K bars Strawberry and a Diet Coke
Lunch: Grilled Classic Chicken Sandwich from McD's, a salad with FF Catalina, Coke
Dinner: To celebrate Cinco de Mayo! 2 chicken fajitas, refried beans FF, chips/salsa, ChiChis sweet corn cakes, Diet Coke
