Observing and it's a small town *updated*

I learned on Saturday night just how small this town is. Ya'all remember the guy I dated last year (2007) right? Ok...there were two of them. The one I'm talking about here was the last one. R. I won't say his name. I won't smear my blog with his name again. :) Anyway...I have not run into him at all in the last year. That is a lovely thing. Saturday night my lovely moments were not so much a lovely thing. A friend and I decided to go out to Applebee's for appetizers and drinks. They have the most wonderful Pomegranate Margaritas. You should try them. Really...you should. I digress...sorry about that. I got to the restaurant after my friend so I wandered into the dining room and spotted her so what do I do? Well I wander up to her and say HI!!! Not in a quiet way. That is just not me. I'm a boistrous type of person but ya'll already know that right? :)

I sit down and order a drink...Pom Margarita in case you hadn't figured that out…

You have got to be freaking kidding me!!!

9am - Snowing like you would not believe. Huge...I mean...HUGE...flakes.

Noon - sun shining, blue sky, warming up, snow melting. Much better.

3pm - Snow!!!! Wind!!! Freaking cold!!! Snow is not supposed to fall sideways!!! Seriously...just 15 minutes ago the sky was clear and blue. Now? Flags outside of my window are holding on for dear life. Snow is falling SIDEWAYS!!! What in the bloody blazes is going on with this weather???

Look back at my previous post. See that beautiful hotel? See the palm trees? Only 94 days and I'll be there!!! It cannot come soon enough. Really...it can't.

UPDATE from when I posted just 2 minutes ago:

Snowing, gray sky, SUN SHINING!!!! I'll let you figure that one out.







Look close

It is December 22. Only the beginning of winter. I'm done with winter now. For the past 2 or 3 weeks we have been dealing with absolutely ridiculous temps. I believe it was last week we were -14 with the wind chill. Did you read that right??? NEGATIVE 14!!! That my friends is just not right. There is just no earthly reason why the temps need to get that low. I cannot for the life of me figure out the good things behind it. What was God thinking when He said "Let there be sub zero temperatures"? When I get to heaven I'm going to have a chat with Him about it.

Aside from the weather...all is well within my little home. It's just me and the critters until Thursday though. Kids are gone for a week. Kinda nice. Kinda lonely. I've been falling asleep in my recliner because I don't want to go to bed. How stupid is that? It's not like I've always had someone in my bed. For some odd reason though...since the kids have left...I don't l…

Thanks Nell!!!

Now if only humans could be this compassionate...

Weekend...

I won't get into it but if you watch this video you just might get the gist of it.



And with that...I am so done. Tired of the games, the leading on, and hurting my heart. It's insane and there is not one man on this planet who is worth all of that. I don't look for these guys. They find me. Well I'm hiding in my cave never to be seen in daylight again by someone who has a penis. This heart is now cold and shut solid.



PS...Love this song and it totally fits where I am at right now. Not a snowball's chance in hell will my mind be changed about any and all men...this is what ALL of them are.

I loved making this...

How you live

Image
Wake up to the sunlight with your windows open
Don't hold in your anger or leave things unspoken
Wear your red dress, use your good dishes
Make a big mess and make lots of wishes
And have what you want, but want what you have
And don't spend your life looking back

Turn up the music Turn it up loud
Take a few chances and let it all out
'Cause you won't regret it
Looking back from where you have been
'Cause it's not who you knew
And it's not what you did
It's how you live
So go to the ballgames and go to the ballet
And go see your folks more than just on the holidays
Kiss all your children, dance with your wife
Tell your husband you love him every night
Don't run from the truth 'cause you can't get away, oh no
Face it and you'll be okay

Oh, wherever you are and wherever you've been
Now is the time to begin
So give to the needy, and pray for the grieving
Even when you don't think that you can
'Cause all that you do is bound to come back to you
So think…
