New Year’s Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time.

I don’t have much to say today, I’ve been kind of busy with work, and all. I Hope you all have a great New Year. I don’t have much planned. Maybe go to KB’s office for dinner, then off to a lil party down the street. I still have to work in the morning, and we can’t drink alcohol here, so It’s safe to say, I will probably be in bed before the New Year.

Mr. P says that he has an Airsoft tournament tomorrow night (His New Years Eve), That’s cool, if that really what it is he will be doing. Who knows? He asked me last night why don’t I give him the benefit of the doubt when he tells me something… I told him ” You have used up ALL your benefits, all I have left is doubt”. It’s true. I don’t believe anything that comes out of his mouth. 

He asked me to write a letter to his supervisor in order to get his job transferred when we move, I normally would have done this, but not this time. I tried a different approach, I said ” If you want me to do something for you, you will have to do something for me first, I am tired of doing you favors, and I get nothing in return” So, he agreed. I gave him a task to complete, and I stated that when he was done with that, let me know, and I will start on that letter for his job. It really sucks that I have to go to this extent in order to get him to do what needs to be done. He was NEVER like this when I was physically there, it’s like he has completely disregarded everything since I left. I know he will straighten out when I return, but there are so many things that have yet to be accomplished this year because he has sat by and done NOTHING.

I hope that you New Year brings new love, new happiness, and new adventures. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank those who have supported me from day one.  I would probably not have made it this far if I wasn’t for the confidence, and advice that I received throughout  my life. Many people thought I wasn’t listening, but I actually was.

When the clock strikes twelve on December 31st, people all over the world cheer and wish each other a very Happy New Year. For some, this event is no more than a change of a calendar. For others, the New Year symbolizes the beginning of a better tomorrow.

  The Old Year has gone.  Let the dead past bury its own dead.  The New Year has taken possession of the clock of time.  All hail the duties and possibilities of the coming twelve months!

I do think New Year’s resolutions can’t technically be expected to begin on New Year’s Day, don’t you?  Since, because it’s an extension of New Year’s Eve, smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system.  Also dieting on New Year’s Day isn’t a good idea as you can’t eat rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment, in order to ease your hangover.  I think it would be much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the second.

My 2010 Overview

Okay, pause for a moment and check your pulse. Still there? Good. That means you survived the last couple of years with both Saturn and Pluto in less-than-perfect places for you. And by “less than perfect,” I mean “lousy.” Good news! Both of astrology’s heavyweights have moved on to more constructive places for you. Now is the time to take that famous Pisces sensitivity (still intact from the challenges of the last while) and put it to work making your life a happier and more comfortable place.

You’ll be receiving a lot more attention from others in 2010: loved ones, family and co-workers will all be drawn to you at times like moths to a flame. And as a result of the last couple of years worth of hassle, you’ll be a stronger person with better judgment, and much better able to handle the influx. Enjoy your new position at the center of your own social circle!

One more noteworthy change from the previous year: Jupiter will be in your sign for most of the year, giving you a newfound sense of optimism and happiness about things no matter how they turn out. You’ll be feeling expansive, but be careful not to expand too much — this transit also comes with a more than usual chance of weight gain. There will be a renewed emphasis on health, fitness and personal well-being in the spring — take advantage of that. Then again, maybe you just deserve the break. What’s a pound or to compared to real happiness?

We only have One Mom, One Mommy, One Mother in this World, One life. Don’t wait for the Tomorrow’s to tell Mom, you love her.

Today is Moms birthday, she would have been 65.

She passed away 10 years ago, but is still very much alive in my heart.

I wanted to take today to remember my Mom.

MY ROCK

( My Mom)

Sometimes I catch myself  calling my Mom on the phone,

No one answers, then  I remember, I’m alone.

She was always there To answer my calls

 To listen to my “small talk”

Or when I climbed the walls.

 At times, I didn’t feel like talking,

And somehow she understood.

 She didn’t say she wished I’d call,

Or make me feel like I should.

Now, I wish I would have had more times, to show I cared

To reminisce about all those times we shared.

 I could have shown my love so much more than I did

 I never did it enough Even when I was a kid.

Now it’s too late to do or say all those things I wish I had

 No way to ease the pain inside when my heart is sad.

 She was my “anchor” to this life,

The “rock” that I clung to

  The place, where I could turn

When, nowhere else would do.

 Now, the ravages of time have worn my “rock” away

  And all I have to cling to are memories of yesterday.

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than 10,000 tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love. ~ Washington Irving

“In just two days, tomorrow will be yesterday”

I MESSED UP DAMNIT!!!!! So, I was almost asleep last night, when I hear this “riiinnnnngggg-rriiiiinnnnngggg”, and I answered it, without looking… It was Mr. P, He asked me what was up, I said “Nothing”, then he asked why he hadn’t heard from me, and I said “Why haven’t I heard from you”. He explains how he has sent me three IM’s, and of course, I said I didn’t get them, just like he says that he didn’t get my calls. I tell him that I don’t wanna talk and I’m going back to bed, then I hang up. Damn, I was really not wanting to talk to him. He then hits me up on IM, and asks me what was wrong, I said “The players change, but your games stay the same, that’s my problem”. He says “Babe, if I would have heard the phone, you know I would have answered it”, WHATEVER. I say again that I’m going to bed, and I don’t wanna talk, he says “Is it that you just don’t wanna talk to me”, I said “Yes, that’s what it is, I’m going to bed, and I won’t be responding to anything else you send, bye” He then sends “I love You” three times. I am thinking to myself, why do you love me when I’m upset with you? Why can’t you “Love” me all the time? This morning I sign on to Yahoo IM, under his account, and the 1st thing that pops up is a message from that same chick that he has been in constant contact with since I left. The message said “If you do come over, can you bring some movies, at least one scary one”… So, I guess he has plans tonight… hmmmm. Of course, if I mentioned this, he wouldn’t explain himself, he would go off on me about why I’m being so nosey, and why would I go through his private things. So, I just keep this to myself, file it away with all the other ammo I have, and when I get home, I will fire it all off. He told me that there is NOTHING going on between them, they are just friends. But, if that’s the case, when I mention I have a problem with this “Innocent relationship” they have, he says, I will minimize contact with her, and still NOTHING has been done. If they aren’t texting, their IM’ing, or calling each other… 8 months this has been going on. I feel helpless, because I can’t do anything from out here.
 
 
My friend KB is going through something very similar to me, the big difference is, that both her and her man have children, not together, but both have boys that are close enough to be blood brothers. I feel bad, because I cannot give her the same advice as I usually would, because I am going through it too, all I can say is.. “We will get through this”.. And I sincerely mean it. I know these things don’t seem like much to your average person, but I guarantee, if you were the one that was constantly lied to, or the one who kept catching your significant other doing stupid things, then maybe  you would understand. It’s so easy to say “Leave him, he’s not worth it”, but it’s just not that simple.
 
I’m going to leave you with this:
  • “All marriages are happy. It’s the living together afterward that causes all the trouble.” -Raymond Hull
  • “The total amount of undesired sex endured by women is probably greater in marriage than in prostitution.” -Bertrand Russell
  • “You’d be surprised how much it costs to look this cheap.” – Dolly Parton
  • “I should like to see any kind of man, distinguishable from a gorilla, that some good and even pretty woman could not shape a husband out of.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
  • “A woman might as well propose: her husband will claim she did.” – Edgar Watson Howe

Have a great day.

 
 

This One Is For The Ladies

This was too good not to post…
sometimes men DO say the right thing!

Jack wakes up with a huge hangover after the night at a business function. He forces himself to open his eyes and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins next to a glass of water on the side table. And, next to them, a single red rose!

Jack sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. Jack
looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotlessly clean. So is the rest of the house. He takes the aspirins and cringes when he sees a huge black eye staring back at him in the bathroom mirror and notices a note on the table:

“Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go shopping – Love you!”

He stumbles to the kitchen and sure enough, there is hot breakfast and the morning newspaper. His son is also at the table. Jack asks, “Son, what happened last night?”

Well, you came home after 3 am, drunk out of your mind. You broke the coffee table, puked in the hallway and got that black eye when you ran into the door.”

So, why is everything in such perfect order, so clean, I have a rose and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?”

His son replies, “Oh, THAT! Mom dragged you to the bedroom and when she tried to take your pants off, you screamed, “Leave me alone, bitch, I’m married!”.

You What????…It’s Over! (Public) Expressions Of ‘Broken’ Love

 

No one said that love (or sex) was easy — or not without recrimination…especially if cheating or screwing your friend’s spouse or blatant misbehavior is involved. Sometimes even if no misbehavior is involved, feelings are left raw…or in need of some form of healthy expression. Or unhealthy expression. How many failed relationships don’t leave one of the parties aggrieved and with some desire to express himself or herself?      
 

Here are some examples of these (public) expressions — people in one way or another who feel hurt or enraged or liberated and who simply can’t keep it to themselves.        

_____________________________________
_______________________________
      
 

    Sometimes the deepest hurt feelings are most honestly and movingly expressed through art.  
 

      

Finally, an Independence Day sale worthy of the fireworks.      
 

       

It’s a known fact. When you get really really mad, the first thing to go is your spelling.      
 

   
 

At least she wants to have sex with someone…      
 


 

Not sure exactly who this sign is aimed at…squirrels, chipmunks? The goat?      
 


 

Probably not a good idea to expect a big reward here.      
 

 
 

If only they’d gotten married when they were older than 12…      
 

 
 

Billboard classics. If you’ve got a lot of money and a lot of issues, and you’re really pissed off, this is how you express yourself apparently…      
 

  

 

If friends can’t get over this, what can they get over?     

  

If only he’d done it with just one other women…or two women but at different times.       

 

Hmm. We get the ex-wife? What if we prefer the lawn ornaments? (Ok, not funny.)     


Your phone was busy, internet down…just wanted to let you know. Decent thing to do. 

 

The b***h took everything. I’m broke. Please help me. Please.       

Was thinking of maybe, ‘slut’…but thought ‘whore’ better represented.       

Hmm…buy boat, get sex. Or do we only have to offer on the boat?      

 

I’m not happy but, well…I’ll be back in an hour, OK?      

 

In Relationships, Honesty Is The Best Policy … Or Not

You’re in a relationship and you like some things about it but not so much other things. You want to communicate — honesty is always best, right? — but you’re not sure how without creating tension, maybe threatening the relationship. So what do you do? How do you find the right balance?

Here’s one guy’s approach. A guy apparently reaching the point where he simply has to confess — in this case about a minor difference in musical tastes with his girlfriend. We appreciate the balance struck — between profound delicacy and sensitivity and honest feeling. We’re sure this will only serve to unite this couple further, strengthening their bonds and mutual respect … or not.
