Well it seems i start to update and things start to get really crazy here, so the kids are at school and i have a few minutes before i have to get ready for work...so I'm finally updating...and then the phone rings....x2....I can't type and talk at the same time..
So i finally got that check thing fixed after the bank put it threw twice,now wouldn't you think that a 20,000 dollar check,for a friggin water bill would seem like an over site, but the bank was great, the rest of the week went about as good as it started, stressful,that check thing happened on a Monday night , then my sis calls and tells me her arm might be broke, ( 2 days before thanksgiving),but it was not, (she found out after thanksgiving) so she did make one heck of a dinner with arm in cast thing and all!!!!!once again her dinner was the best!
on Fri. after thanksgiving on Fri. Dave and i start our shopping,and all is good ,till sat when i go to the store to buy the forbidden cig, and they tell me my debit card is DECLINED, what the hell, since Dave just deposited his pay check fri....well that damn check was still haunting me, grrrrrrrrrrr....we were over drawn 18,000 dollars.damn, i do not think i have ever been that stressed....and all the while still thinking my water bill is still not payed....my mom did come up for thanksgiving and yes she did stay here for 2 nights,yea.....so i asked my mom, if i could borrow the money to pay the water bill and write her a check...she just looked at me...yea right.....then on Sunday, we are all visiting and my sister calls, her husband was choking on a piece of meat(carne asada) and needed to go to the hospital....a few things i learned if your choking on meat as follows: when your choking on meat that is dislodge, Do not jump on your tractor and go in circles, the bouncing motion will not dislodge it, do not stick a spark plug wire down your throat, it will not help,and you could tear you esophagus, and the hymlik does not always work....my brother in law is just fine now, thank god...and it was a very serious situation...
Well i have every ones Christmas shopping done ,hmmm but my kids...damn how does that always happen...I've been working every day and it finally cold here 50 degrees and freezing grrrrrrr...doing the brownies, and being busy with that, the girls will be in the Christmas parade this weekend...which will be fun! so last week after my brownie meeting i had to go by the boys and girls club, to talk with someone and of course bitching about how unorganized about how our troop is and the women who runs the boys and girls club is there, and after i left she asked my friend if i would be interested in working there....yes another real job....of course i said yes, but i still have to go threw the application process..so hopefully things will work out and I'll have another job!..
anyways just a quick note about marriage....sometime when people get married they dread there in laws..and as you all no my mother in law and i are not the best of friends and maybe never will be...but it is what it is ! but my husbands aunt is the greatest, she is a retired school teacher who right now is living in Oregon,but is just the nicest person in the world, yesterday i talked to her for about a half hour, and she is the type of person after you talk to you feel so good about yourself,she is not judge mental,and she is just the greatest, there are not enough things to say how woderful she truly is!anyways her and i will be sort of Internet dieting together and I'm very
well i must get going will try to update again before Christmas, no only joking!!!
Have a great day everyone!

Yes it has been weeks.. and sorry for that....
Hmm were to start, hm oh someone tried to break into my house, and they did come in , but thank god for alarm systems, i saw finger prints on the top of my computer, so what i think happen is when they came in, the alarm went off,and when whomever it was kept hearing the blaring alarm, figured the cops would be here soon and left! whew, now i lock my door and set the alarm....
I went to go have lots of blood work done and a two hour glucose test,(note to people, if you ever have this done bring a book)
And i did finnally go and have that ct scan done, my sister went with me, then we went to lunch, and it was yummy, there is nothing like a good Chinese restaurant...we had a great day!~
So the Dr.s finally call me and tell me I HAVE to go into there office for the results,(they usually give them to me on the phone)so now i am very worried and stressed, damn do i have cancer, why did i not quit smoking ect...so i go to the Dr.s and NO I do not have cancer, just some scar tissue from bronchitis, that i get every year..
but i am diabetic, my blood sugar was 232, which i guess is very high,and a fatty liver,which could leed to serossis of the liver, so now I'm fat(like i don't know that),and i can't eat fudge at Christmas..
hmmmm this explains why i seem so tired at the end of the day!
but i have goals...and it sounds pretty good,I'm gonna start exercising to the point where i can start jogging ,where i don't feel like i need oxygen, then maybe next year run walk in a 3k 5k race....now i just need to not think about it and do it!
Halloween was great,the kids dressed up really cute, the girls and i walked up the street, then my sister came over and we all drove around the neighborhood,her husband drives and we walk then drive and walk ect. until a its too late and there are no lights on or we are just tired...we do this every year, and its fun, this year my nephew brought his little friend and she was cute..a little pirate...
and one last thing, last week at school there is this first grader and it seems he is always in some sort of trouble,so he was kickin the balls that are off limits to kicking and i told him to go put it away and come see me, well this said child is pron to not listening, anyways I'm watching him and tell him to hurry,and he tosses the ball in the basket and i tell him to hurry, again this little boy turns and starts to run back in a dead run, not realizing there was a basketball pole not three feet in front of him, and blam, he hit that pole full speed ahead, i was so shocked, this little child fell backwards, and when he got up he had the biggest lump on his head......it was something straight out of a cartoon, he did go to the nurse and went home,was back at school the next day,not even a bruise. but damn i still could not believe it happened..
our brownie troop made flags out of construction paper and and wrote little notes on the back for our U.S. soldiers and we are gonna mail them to some troop in Iraq,today. its very exciting and the girl were so happy, then on Tuesday we are going to an old cemetery and put flag on some old veterans graves..
So what are every ones thanksgiving plans...on the 23 of this month we will be going with Dave to az,we're going to stay at the casino,they have an indoor water park, then we'll be back on the 26 and going to my sisters house for dinner..hope my mom goes, that would be awesome.. and my sister does know how to make the best turkey dinner...can't wait!
so now I am updated , will not lag anymore
just for fun:

You Are a Good Friend Because You're Honest
Like it or not, your friends are going to hear the truth from you.
You know that the truth hurts, but living a life of lies is much worse.
So while you're definitely kind and supportive, you don't pull any punches with your friends.
Everyone knows where they stand with you. And what you like and dislike about them.
While some may be initially turned off by your honesty, your friends have come to consider it a virtue.
After all, in world of white lies and deceptive politeness, you can be counted on for honesty and integrity.
Your friends need you most when: They need good advice or an intelligent opinion
You really can't be friends with: Needy, emotional people
Your friendship quote: "True friendship can afford true knowledge. It does not depend on darkness and ignorance."
this last ques, had multiple answer for me so i just picked out one
..Hmmm as everyone knows, i have been looking for a basset hound puppy, one that is not to expensive..so I'm looking in the penny saver.. and i see an ad in the real estate section and there is an ad for rentals, blah blah blah.call Wendy ...the no. is bal blah..and my mid starts wonderng is this my dear old friend Wendy.. from adelanto.. the one i laughed with cried with.. went to willie nelson with.. so i call the no. and YES it is my dear old friend.. it is always so could to reconnect with good friends..and we did. so today we had a lot of good laughs, and yes shed a tear, or two... but things are good for her and her husband somedays name is dave.. how weird is that...i talked to smocha to, and she is well.. oh thank god....anyways have a great day peeps..i just stayed home and did laundry..my favorite thing...not.........

You Are a Heart
Your life philosophy can be summed up as, "Love like you've never been hurt."
Your greatest wish is to have harmony in all of your relationships.
You can't help loving people, even when they're incredibly flawed.
You are a true romantic, and you are willing to give almost anyone a second chance.
