Wishing you all have a wonderfully, blessed Christmas!


My wonderful fiance bought this for me tonight  It happens to play our wedding song as well…

NO SURPRISE! SICKO!!!!,0,4290302.story

WHY is it that every time I hear about a catholic priest getting busted, I think of THIS ONE in particular?? I don’t like the fact that I KNEW this guy once, when he was a priest at the school I went to…SO disillusioned by all this, this man was so jolly and happy, always smiling and laughing…guess it all makes sense…he had been getting away with doing bad things

SO very disgusting!!!

Welcome TUESDAY!!

What a way to start the day! Drop my phone in the toilet, first thing this morning! DAMMIT! I’ve never done THAT before, so now it and the battery are sitting in rice…hopefully that will do the trick!

My daughter bought me a new coffee mug yesterday from her college! It’s big and the mouth is pretty wide, and it makes my coffee taste OH so DELICIOUS! (that and the fact that I cleaned out the coffee maker last night, by running vinegar through it twice  )

So no phone for several hours, but DAMN, I made a GREAT cup of coffee!!! Salud!  Will write more later…

Have a great day!


Woke up early, did my morning routine, took 2 of 4 kids to school, waiting to take the last two to college, then ME TIME! I love my morning’s when it’s just ME in the house and no one else.

I feel that this week is going to be a good one. It’s a short week, no work/school Friday, then next week, we go all week, but the week AFTER next, we go to school/work, 2 days then off for Thanksgiving holiday. I don’t know if the college kids are off, but the middle school, high school and myself are off

It’s a crisp morning, no rain, but the results after the rain yesterday are just beautiful! THIS is truly a FALL day

Hope you all have a great day! ENJOY!


it’s been a “minute” huh, since I was here last? I used to be really good at keeping journals when I was younger, and I would really love to do it again, so I start with the greatest of intentions, but then…. who knows. I guess my life is going pretty well, there isn’t too much to say, but then really, there is a lot to say, and I probably could say a lot

ANYWAY, my daughter is working at Mc D’s…she loves it, but doesn’t. I hope they keep her, as she needs to work, just wish THEY would adhere to her school schedule and stop scheduling her at the TIMES she has school. I thought they were “education friendly…” The way they mess with her this way, gives me cause to wonder….

OH, don’t forget to “Turn back time” tonight! YEAH! Who COULDN’T use an extra hour of sleep!? I know I could!!

Will write more later,



Of course, CA doesn’t have the 4 seasons like we USED to…where one could tell that it was Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, but alas, it IS FALL here…

Hope this post finds you all happy, healthy and wiser  I’m back to work, and love it, of course. Kids crack me up!

My female child is working at McDonalds but will be looking for better employment from a company that actually CARES about the fact that she is going to school, and one that actually FOLLOWS the schedule they put up for their employees.

We’ve had some viral guck flowing around here, first with me, some kind of viral sinus stuff, then my male child with a viral respiratory infection, and now my female child with a bad headache…not fun, and I hate when my kiddos are sick….

Other than stuff going on that I cannot comment on or write about, things have been going pretty good so far, I certainly cannot complain…

Until next time….

Monday 9-5-11

First off, let me start by saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my former stepson, Nick. Can it really be that he is 27?? WOW… Well, that’s it for that, LOL

My life…My daughter started college last month, she likes it. She is going to a JC right now, then will transfer to a state college in two yrs.

My son will start 9th grade in a couple days, gosh, time is just flying by! THANK GOD, I start back to work the day after my son starts school. It will be GREAT to be getting back to work!

Tomorrow I have to go file some papers at court against my ex. Although my daughter is 18 now, the DA will only enforce the child support arrears he owes. Thankfully, they have a lien against the house he lives in that is part of a family trust for that. What I am filing for is the medical arrears he owes. Apparently, I need to get a DOLLAR amount he will owe per month, and add that to the child support money he owes, and send the order to the DA so they can enforce that as well.

Everything else is working out as i…

Sweet, Emotional Salute from Father to son....

THIS is from my husband’s ex wife’s second husband to his son. I thought this was very sweet!

Are you MADLY in LOVE?

I already knew this!

You love your partner with all your heart. You couldnt possibly imagine hurting him/her or being without your partner. You will do anything you can to make your partner extremely happy.

Happy Carmageddon Day!!

THANKFULLY, I don’t ever drive the 405 fwy, unless going to the beach and I already told the kids we weren’t going ANYWHERE this weekend that requires a freeway  LA traffic is horrendous ANYWAY, and with this freeway closed down, AY Dios MIO!

Now, just getting some things done around here, before my surprise date night with my LOVE, I’m pretty excited! I think we need this In fact, I KNOW we do…getting too caught up with LIFE and not having alot of QT is not good, so hopefully this is something we can do more of.

Have a great day!!!


I always have good intentions when I start a blog. It’s supposed to be MY very own place to vent or rejoice or just share stuff, but I just can’t seem to get with it, LOL…ANYWAY,

What’s been going on since I wrote last, well, my son “Promoted” and in Sept. will now be in 9th grade. My daughter Graduated high school and will be starting college next month.

My fiancee and I were to get married next month as well, nearly everything was done, but we have postponed it. I’m sad about that, but we are working out some things, and it can only make us better.

We’re enjoying summer, just chillin’. Now that I’m not getting married next month, I was thinking of taking a road trip to WA to see my sister, but I’m not sure who can go with me, as I know my fiancee has to work. Maybe that will have to wait until next year, after taxes.

I was caught up in the Casey Anthony trial. I believe that SHE murdered her child and that the jury did a TOTAL injustice to little Caylee Anthony. VERY SAD…listening …

REAL Black History written by Robin Quivers

I’m watching African American Lives on PBS, a documentary featuring the ancestry of prominent African Americans. The show features famous entertainers like Chris Rock and Tina Turner and prominent business and community leaders. Usually, when people look up their ancestors it’s a happy occasion to learn where you came from and who you’re related too. This is not so if you were born black in America.
I found out just how hard it is to figure out who your ancestors are last year when I looked up my grandfather on my father’s side. It was so exciting to see his name in the government records, stating who he was married to and listing all of his children including my dad. My excitement was short lived, however, because that one census entry was all I found.
There was nothing at all before that one entry; it was as if he came from nowhere and suddenly appeared as a grown man with children. Watching …
