Bubble Shooter Game

Friday, May 15, 2009

Sorry haven't blogged in over a week. The semester just ended and I was really worn out. I have been spending time with my daughter. We have seen Star Trek twice. We love that movie, and Kirk and Spock. We will be heading to the beach in a couple of weeks for a few days of sun and fun. Boy, do I need that. We will see David Cook while there. I look forward to good seafood, and hours on the beach. I have travel plans for this summer, I will go where no man has gone before. My niece, Ashleigh graduates from college this weekend. She is a doll baby. I love her so much. She will be a great teacher, because she is so caring and giving. Well. that is all for today. See you later in blogger land.

Happy Birthday Ryan

Wow, 22 years ago today. My husband and I tried for 2 years to get pregnant. We went to specialists, and had tests, and I kept records. It became very scientific, and mechanical. My poor hubby was under enthused after a few months. "Honey, it's a good time." "Baby can it wait until after the game?" It seemed as if he began to keep a mental record, and stayed clear of the bedroom. Yes, it put a strain on our marriage, because I was obsessed. When I asked him to get tested, oh my God! That was a direct challenged to his manhood. But, when the results said "the boys" were strong and capable, he was relieved and a little smug. He wanted a child also, but he was not over the moon about it. Until he laid eyes on Ryan. I was so sick right after the birth, that I stayed in the recovery room for 4 hours. He was the one to bond with our daughter. He gave her the first bath, and bottle. He spent that whole time with her. I was so jealous. It was so unfair, I should have been bonding, but, oh no, instead I was puking my guts out, and freezing to death. Anyway, all ended well. We only have the one, but she has been such a blessing. Truly Motherhood is the greatest gift in life.

May brings Babies

Doesn't it seem like everyone is having a baby in May. It is a perfect month to deliver. One more month and the pangs of Hell. I mean summer heat. Being large and in charge and sweating like the family pig on a spit. Sweat glands seem to triple in size during the last three months. You feel bad, your feet are two sizes larger then normal and everything gets on your nerves. Plus all you want to do is eat and sleep. I remember calling my doctor everyday for two weeks. I was miserable and Huge. I drove my poor husband crazy. The man really was a saint during this time. I would send him to the Ghetto for shrimp fried rice. I am not kidding. He would drive across town to this place that was a walk up window. With bars! Forget the nice Chinese restaurants with pleasant hostesses nearby. I had to have that rice, and nothing else would do. What a pain I was. I look back now and shake my head. Thank God for a loving husband, and supportive family. Oh, and by the way, my doctor was "conveniently out of town when I finally went into labor. More motherhood tales this month.

What I do know about men

Just reading a advice column, you know where people post their personal business for strangers to read. And respond with their bad experiences. Haven (not real name) is getting mixed signals from her male best friend. They have been close for years, but now things may be changing. He is telling her how he misses her while at work, and is distracted by thoughts of her. He is willing to drive an hour and a half to cheer her up. She is confused by the new attention. Should they sleep together? No, don't do it. Trust me nothing good will come of this. Most importantly ladies the BF relationship will not be salvageable. He will not feel comfortable around you again. Never crossed that friendship line. Men can not handle it. They will always feel you want more. There are too many men out there to risk losing a good shoulder to cry on.

100 Days

I was just on AOL where there was a comment section on our president. I read some of the posts, and was so sickened by several of them, that I could not post. President Obama, came to office with a mess on his hands. A mess created by the previous administration. I cannot understand why so many are trying to forget that the prolems were already there waiting for him. He faced a economy hanging on the edge. A very unpopular war in Iraq. Plus unemployment numbers not seen in decades.

All these problems are right in our face, but some people are posting hate. Calling him a ape. Saying the White House smells because of the first family. That it needs to be burned down after they leave. These are the same people that are our neighbors, and co-workers. They would never say these thimgs at lunch, or over the back fence. But, they hid behind the internet, where no one can know who they are. I am saddened by these comments. It took everyone of us to build this country. It will take Americans to bring us out of this era. Love this country and be proud of the achievements we have reached. Stop the hate, it is contagious. Why can't we find a cure for hatred?

Try being a 50 + college student, in todays fast pace world. Why am I getting a second degree. I know I could just get a masters, but, with this major I would not get all the courses I really need. It is not about the degree, but, about the Bible. There is so much to learn when it comes to Religious Studies. And guess what? I really want to learn it. Add to the fact that I am Catholic, well 2000 years worth of knowledge there. I love all aspects of the subject. It is really our true History. I think about the 12 Apostles, and how they went to theirs deaths gladly. All but John were put to death. What did they know? Had they truly seen the risen Christ. What other explanation could there be. These men died with the Lord's name on their lips, they were not afraid. They knew there was another life for them. They had walked with and touched Jesus. I think about it everyday. This has been my saving Grace.
