Learn from the mistakes of others, you can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.

Good morning… I would like to take this opportunity 2 give a shout out to the one & only Mr. P. Yes, my hubby has finally found this blog… I didn’t hide it from him, He knew I had an idea to start it, I just didn’t mention that it was up & running.  Just because he is now an avid reader does not mean that my raw content or real feelings will change.

Reason

A lady walks into the drug store and asks the druggist for some arsenic.

The druggist asks “Ma’am, what do you want with arsenic?”

The lady say’s “To kill my husband.”

“I can’t sell you any for that reason” says the druggist.

The lady then reaches into her purse and pulls out a photo of a man and a woman in a compromising position,

the man is her husband and the lady is the druggist’s wife, and shows it to the druggist.

He looks at the photo and says “Oh, I didn’t know you had a prescription!”

I have been so busy with work that I really have been neglecting this blog. Last week I had been in my office at the most,  maybe an hour a day, and that was just to catch up on work e-mails. Needless to say, this is only Monday, but I have a feeling this will be a repeat of last week. I will be home soon, I really miss my Kitties and my lil guy Sancho.

I would like to be able to say that I miss my hubby, but I actually miss the “Old” him, the one I left about a year ago, this  “New” guy is more of a stranger than anything else. He said that everything will be back to normal when I return, but, I feel it’s already too late. People change, feelings change. Many circumstances I have faced with him could have been easily avoided, but instead I have been treated like a “side piece”. I know he will disagree, but that’s what he does.  I can’t change the past I can only focus on the future.

 

Karma is a law in Hinduism which maintains that every act done, no matter how insignificant, will eventually return to the doer with equal impact. Good will be returned with good; evil with evil. Since Hindus believe in reincarnation, karma knows no simple birth/death boundaries. If good or evil befall you, it is because of something you did in this or a previous lifetime. Karma is not fate, for humans act with free will creating their own destiny. But just as poison affects us if taken unknowingly, suffering caused unintentionally will also give appropriate karmic effect. We are in position to do something about our destiny by doing the right thing at the right time. Through positive actions, pure thoughts, prayer, mantra and meditation, we can resolve the influence of the karma in present life and turn the destiny for the better.

 

My Horoscope for Today

You’re not making much progress, but resist the urge to give up. You’re no quitter. Try not to worry too much about how to get ahead today — you need to focus instead on doing what’s right. If you can pull that off, the rest should take care of itself and you should be quite pleased with the results. Being brazen has its advantages. First of all, it’s extremely appealing to prospective suitors and an absolute magnet for friends. It’s fire, and whether it’s in a fireplace or a person’s attitude doesn’t matter. That famously hypnotic quality is still there. Someone who wants to woo you, for a variety of reasons, will show you more than a little bit of fire right now, and you’ll find it quite appealing. Play the game, though. Don’t let on just yet.

I have a funny feeling what the beginning of this horoscope is talking about. It’s Mr. P, and this thing we call marriage. It’s hard enough being apart, but it’s even harder when you can’t rely on or trust  your other half.  Game on!

 

If love is blind, why is marriage such an eye opener?

I know that my little blurbs about my days have become few and far between but, I have been really swamped at work these past couple weeks. My co-worker is supposed to come back today, and hopefully he will be able to take some of this stuff off my plate because I have become overwhelmed with all the work that has poured in.

Hubby You always carry my photo in your handbag to the office. Why?

Wife When there is a problem, no matter how impossible, I look at your picture and the problem disappears.

Hubby You see, how miraculous and powerful I am for you?

Wife Yes, I see your picture and say to myself, “What other problem can there be greater than this one?”

Mr.P has really lived up to his name this time. I had sent him a Valentines day box, and then another package, just because. It was filled with a whole bunch of movies ( about 40 to be exact), some boxers an Ed Hardy hat, and alot of other things. He finally went and picked it up today, and pretty much that was it. I ask him if he had looked at all that I sent, and he said “Not everything, because I picked it up on my way to work”. Okay, I can understand that… A few hours after he is OFF work he e-mails me, he doesn’t mention the gifts, he tells me something about his phone, so I call him and ask if he opened the box yet, he says he has…..     AND THAT’S IT!… Seriously, that was it, no “Thank You”, no “I really loved everything”, no “that was really thoughtful”, NO NOTHING. I politely told him I was really busy at work, and that I would like to get off the phone, and in mid sentence I hung up on him. I know I am a very sensitive individual, but damn, can’t I for once be surprised at his reaction after all that I do for him. Is it too much to ask for a little appreciation? I feel like crying right now, but, I’m at work, and I really don’t feel like anyone asking me what’s wrong. My husband could care less about anything I do for him, but expects me to keep doing  it. From this day forward I won’t be let down anymore. I will stop the “Just because’ gifts, and the cards to let him know I miss him, and anything else that comes from the heart. That way, I will be saving not only my time and  my money, but also my feelings. I really wish I didn’t give a hoot whether or not he was happy. My thing is, when I have a man, I want him to be happy, and maybe I put myself on the back burner trying to please him and spoil him when I should actually be doing it for myself.  He really thinks that he has done nothing wrong, he says that I should “Already know” how he feels, and you know what… That’s just fine, but there won’t be a “Next Time”, he will soon see a little “Thank You” goes a long way, and it’s not a bad price to pay for all that I had done for him.  Life can be GOOD or life can be GRAND, in this case he had “GRAND” and traded it for ” JUST OKAY”. And that’s completely Okay… I will be alright, I’m nobody’s Momma, and don’t have the Gold to dig for, so maybe when he gets a taste of his up & coming new lifestyle without my constant spoiling tendancies he will see what is it really means to be thankful. This love can only get better, and how I handle things in the future cannot be determined, but I am confident that things will look up.

Just Relax….

A man was on his death bed. His wife was stroking his hand lovingly and speaking gentle words to him for the last time.
“I gotta tell you something honey” said the man very weakly.
“No sweetie, it’s all right, relax” replied the woman.
The man took a deep breath and said, “I have to say that I cheated on you with your sister, your mother and your aunt!!”
The wife cooed, “Sssshhhh, I know, just relax and let the poison do its job.”

 

My Horoscope for Today:

Regardless of your gender, you need female energy. Women will bolster you right now. Your love life is moving along quite smoothly today (NOT!)– no matter where you are in the cycle of romance. You may be irresistible to that new hottie, or you may feel a new spark for your long-term partner. You want to see your friends, but you don’t want to go out. Fine. Bet they’re in the same kind of mood. So why not have an impromptu party at your place? Get the phone lines going, and make sure anyone who’s anyone knows where and what time. Whether you order some take-out or make it a potluck, you’ll have a wonderful time. And after these hectic few days, you certainly deserve a bit of rest and relaxation.

I don’t know when or where this “Impromptu Party” is supposed to take place, but I can tell you it will be no time soon. I am just too tired lately, and really not in the mood to hang out. I just want to go home. As far as the need for female energy, I think that is a bunch of HogWash, I don’t need that type of energy, I’m just fine with the female energy I hold myself. My love life is NOT going smoothly, I don’t know whether it is due to our distance, my absence or just the fact that shit is really out of my control, whatever it is can always be reversed.

If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments

Good morning, Afternoon, or Evening, wherever you are.  This weekend was okay, nothing fancy, and nothing to write home about. Valentines day was a bust. Some co-workers and I went out and had an unproductive night. We attempted to go play wheel of fortune, it wasn’t really organized, so we left and went to Poetry/Open mic night just like every other Sunday. My personal computer has been giving me problems…. Uggghhhhh!, I can get online, but apparently I have a bootleg version of Windows 7, wow, yes, I did receive the software from a third-party, but, I didn’t really expect for Microsoft to call me out.  I now have limited functions, and I am constantly reminded that “This is not a genuine version of Windows 7” on my screen. I guess I will have to either go back to VISTA or break down and find a genuine version Windows 7.

CIGARETTES AND TAMPONS 

A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up & down the aisles.. 

The sales girl notices him and asks him if she can help him. 

He answers that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife.. 

She directs him down the correct aisle. 

A few minutes later, he deposits a huge bag of cotton balls and a ball of string on the counter. 

She says, confused, ‘Sir, I thought you were looking for some tampons for your wife?

 

He answers, ‘You see, it’s like this, yesterday, I sent my wife to the store 

to get me a carton of cigarettes, and she came back with a tin of tobacco 

and some rolling papers; cause it’s sooo-ooo–oo- ooo much cheaper. 

So, I figure if I have to roll my own ………. so does she.

(I figure this guy is the one on the milk carton!)

I received a cute lil package from Mr. P for Valentines day. It had two cards in it, one from him, and one from the kitties & Sancho. He also sprayed my absolute favorite cologne in it. He had a little mirror that had a music box attached and it had a script written on the front, and then he had this tiny little purse with a stuffed chihuahua in it. He did good. He finally put some thought into things. He seems like he is taking a real interest in doing the right thing, but I still can’t forget what has already happened. My birthday is in one month, I will not mention it, lets see how he handles that. His son’s birthday is the day after mine, so I know he will remember.

 

My Horoscope for Today:

You never, ever miss a chance to spoil someone you love on a daily basis. So when a certain someone remembers to return the favor, don’t you dare argue about it. It’s now officially your turn to receive the benefits. Sit down, be quiet and smile. Oh, and when they’re done, go ahead and pass out those gifts you’ve been hoarding.  Hold off on the constructive advice — especially when it hasn’t been solicited. You need to so right by yourself today — it’s easier than ever, thanks to your great energy! It may be a good time for you to step up and make a bold move that you’ve been waiting for.

OOPS! I MADE A BOO-BOO

Sorry I haven’t been on lately, I accidently deleted all my graphics, and I had to go through every post, and either delete it, or replace what I had. Damn, I am still trying to get used to this site, and the build process. I was able to salvage a few posts, but some I couldn’t.

Chris Daughtry is supposed to be here this Saturday. I can’t wait to see him, I love his CD, and I think he is one of the best artists to come out of American Idol. I have been good, I am focused on leaving here, and going home. I don’t leave for a couple months, but I have already started to pack. I have always been an early bird as far as I can remember. I will pack for a vacation two weeks prior to leaving, I will be 45 minutes early for a date: If I’m early, I’m on time/If I’m on time I’m late/If I’m late, something bad must have happened. Weird, I know, I just can’t help it.

Mr. P and I got into it again, nothing serious, actually, I can admit, I started it this time, and I’m not even sorry. Sometimes we have to ruffle some feathers in order to get our point across. I checked the phone bill again, saw some stuff I didn’t like, so I called him out on it. I gave him the ultimate ultimatum, “It’s either them, or me”…. He tried to plead his case, but I wasn’t in the mood to hear it, as a matter of fact all I can remember from that conversation was “Blah, Blah, Blah”… I’ve heard it all before.  I’m not even really mad about it, I just think that maybe he needs a reality check. Life is NOT peaches and cream, no matter who you are, or how you look at it.

A Loving & Caring Wife

 A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor’s office.
After his checkup, the doctor called the wife into his office
alone.
He said, “Your husband is suffering from a very severe
disease, combined with horrible stress. If you don’t do the
following, your husband will surely die.

Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant, and
make sure he is in a good mood. For lunch make him a
nutritious meal he can take to work. And for dinner, prepare
an especially nice meal for him. Don’t burden him with
chores, as this could further his stress.

Don’t discuss your problems with him; it will only make his
stress worse. Try to relax your husband in the evening by
wearing lingerie and giving him plenty of backrubs. Encourage
him to watch some type of team sporting event on television.
And most importantly, make love with your husband several
times a week and satisfy his every whim. If you can do this
for the next 10 months to a year, I think your husband will
regain his health.

On the way home, the husband asked his wife, “What did the

Doctor say?

“Your going to die” she replied.

My Horoscope For Today:

The universe seems to be deliberately tossing obstacles between you and the object of your affection. Whether it’s a thousand miles, an ex who just won’t let go or someone’s responsibilities to family, don’t let it get to you. You’ve been up against worse challenges. Nothing is insurmountable if you really want to be together. Find a way around the roadblocks. It’ll make a great story for your grandkids. Take a risk. It’s something you’re good at. Go ahead — put your feelings out there. You’re part of the search for a new leader — maybe at work, maybe within your circle of friends. The reason behind the search could be almost anything, but your discerning eye is a huge help.

A good wife always forgives her husband when she’s wrong.

I know I haven’t wrote anything in a while. That damn profile picture post took me forever to get straight. The cropping, the content, wow, what a headache. I hope you enjoy it. I have been taking it easy, not too much socializing, pretty much keeping to myself. I will be reading a poem at poetry night tomorrow. I’m not  nervous yet, but, when they call my name, I’m sure I will get butterflies. This is what I will read:

Goodbye

How much time will it take for you to change?

Don’t tell me… – It’s my life I need to rearrange.

I waited long enough – For you to fix your many flaws

I thought you were worth all the pain – But to be honest, you were a lost cause.

Don’t rephrase my way of thinking – Into terms of disagreement

Don’t discriminate my feelings – And make my sorrow your achievement

Don’t pretend you weren’t happy – Don’t try and hide that smile

Don’t pretend you never told me – “Together we could walk that mile”

How could you treat my heart so carelessly? – I want you to explain

I never knew the bad in you – Until you left me in the rain

They say “love is unconditional” – They say “Love don’t cost a thing”

They say “love has no boundaries” – “They” should have bought “Your” ring

Wherever life will take us, the past will follow

You can’t leave it all behind – This lesson is hard to swallow

Why so many tears to cry? Why the sudden fear to fly?

Why the selfish emptiness that deepens as days go by?

Why so many endless nights? Why do opinions lead to fights?

Why are resistance and patience my only duties on your list of rights?

I needed you more than you’ll ever know – I wanted you more than I let show

I did without you even when I was with you – And without you I will go

I am trying so hard to become what I may

Working harder than ever to prove wrong what you say

One day someone will come to appreciate the woman I am

And when you compare yourself to him you will be like “Damn”

I’m realizing the truth, knowing I’m who’s to blame

For all those times swept under the rug that brought nothing but shame

Thinking about all those strangers who somehow knew your name

Looking back now I question everything you said, it was all a game.

Understanding at last all the speeches and wars that I fought

Cause I wore my heart on my sleeve without a second thought

I hope you understand where I’m comin’ from

Just so you know, when you were doing your dirt, I was just playin dumb.

I knew about this and that

I just thought it was better to keep the peace, than to grab a bat

It’s over now, sad but true

I had many to choose from but, settled for you

I thought you were going to be different from those other dudes

But you can’t turn no trick into a treat, I tried with you

I used to cry so much about you not caring

And the flirting with other girls?  You know I’m not sharing

Now I realize I can do so much better

By the way I hope you got the letter

I couldn’t stand to tell you face-to-face

This way you couldn’t really get on my case

Babe, I’m never gonna worry about you again or even cry

Imma say what I should have a long time ago & that’s “goodbye

I know it was pretty long, and I know it seems a lil cold. But, it was just something that needed to be said. No, I’m not leaving my husband…lol… but, that doesn’t mean I haven’t thought of it.  Mr. P and I have been getting along pretty well, I have finally sent off his Valentines box. He also mailed me something off too, which surprised the ishh out of me, because last years Valentines Day was a complete disaster. He has got it together little by little, but I don’t expect him to make a dramatic change. Every time I think he is taking one step forward, two steps back is soon to follow.  It’s all good… Life has a habit of throwing me lemons, it’s my job to figure out what to do with them.  I am under 90 days here, and I can’t wait to go home. My new puppy will be bonded with his daddy, so I might be on the lookout for a new pup when I get to my new destination…. It’s gonna be cool.

I watched a pretty good movie the other night, it was called Lovely Bones. Based on the best-selling book by Alice Sebold, The Lovely Bones is the story of a 14-year-old girl from suburban Pennsylvania who is murdered by her neighbor. She tells the story from Heaven, showing the lives of the people around her and how they have changed all while attempting to get someone to find her lost body. I’ve gotta read this book, I hear it is so much better than the movie. This movie seems like it could have been actually based on a true story. I recommend watching it.

My Horoscope for Today:

Get on with it already! Get over your hesitance and take that big, daring leap. Slow down a little and take stock — your intuitions should be more or less right on, so you can count on seeing the forest and the trees. Once you’re settled, it’s time to move out quickly! You’ve just about had it with the interference, the meddling and all those comments about what you ‘should’ do. Well, before you tell everyone to mind their own business, keep in mind that your friends’ intentions may be good. And if that’s the case, you wouldn’t want to hurt their feelings, right? Besides, haven’t you been accused once or twice of getting a bit too involved in someone else’s problems? Remember, if they didn’t care, they wouldn’t say a word.

I guess that ‘Daring Leap” is referring to my poem. But my horoscope tells me “Get on with it already” and then “Slow Down”… I’m confused. once I’m settled, why would I move out quickly? I don’t really have a comment on this..  I am still trying to figure out what it means. Someone must have been in a hurry when they wrote it.

 

Stress is nothing more than a socially acceptable form of mental illness

Cold Water

A man went to visit his 90-year-old grandfather in a secluded, rural area of the state. After spending the night, his grandfather prepared breakfast for him consisting of eggs and bacon. He noticed a film-like substance on his plate and he questioned his grandfather….are these plates clean?

His grandfather replied…. those plates are as clean as cold water can get them so go on and finish your meal.

That afternoon, while eating the hamburgers his grandfather made for lunch, he noticed tiny specks around the edge of this plate, and a substance that looked like dried egg yolks…so he asked again……are you sure these plates are clean?

Without looking up from his hamburger, the grandfather says…..I told you before, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them, now don’t ask me about it anymore!

Later that afternoon, he was on his way out to get dinner in a nearby town. As he was leaving, Grandfather’s dog started to growl and would not let him pass…. Grandfather, your dog won’t let me out.

Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching, Grandfather shouted, COLDWATER, GET OUT OF THE WAY!

Say Hello to my new edition… “Sancho”…. We got a puppy. Not exactly the type I had in mind, but Mr. P picked him out so, I will love him just as if he were my ideal pick. I am hope he doesn’t turn out to be a psycho dog, looking crazy or become obese. He is a little Chihuahua. Sancho is Mexican slang for “The other man”. I thought it was cuter than “Taco”, that’s what my hubby wanted to name him.  The breeder we adopted him from says that he is 4 months old, and has reached his target size, he is only 4 lbs, but I think he will get bigger. He is up to date on all his shots, but he will still need to be registered at the vet, and will need to go through the same import prerequisites that the cats do. Mr. P bought him a jacket, can you belive this. He went to Wal-Mart with his new buddy and they went shopping. How cute is that? I wish I could have been there.

THIS IS WHAT I HOPE SANCHO DOES NOT TURN OUT TO LOOK LIKE!!!!!

One wish Genie

A woman was walking along the beach when she stumbled upon a bottle. She picked it up & rubbed it, & lo & behold a Genie appeared. The amazed woman asked if she got three wishes.

The Genie said, ” Nope, sorry. Three-wish genies are a myth. Most of us are just single types. I’m a one-wish genie. So…what’ll it be?

The woman didn’t hesitate. She said, “I want peace in the Middle East. See this map? I want these countries to stop fighting with each other. It will bring about world peace & harmony.

The Genie looked at the map & exclaimed: “Lady, be reasonable! These countries have been at war for thousands of years. I’m, out of shape after being in a bottle for centuries. I’m good but not THAT good! Don’t think it can be done. Make another wish & please make it a bit more reasonable.”

The woman thought for a minute & said, “Well, I’ve never been able to find the right man. You know, one that’s considerate and fun, likes to cook and helps with the housecleaning, is great in bed and gets along with my family, doesn’t watch sports all the time, and is faithful…and handsome. That’s what I wish for….a good man I can marry and make my mate.”

The Genie let out a long sigh, shook his head and said “Show me the damn map again.

 

Last night KG, CW, Marz & I all played spades, it was cool, but of course they beat us two out of three. After the game we went to Poetry/Open Mic night which was okay. I was just too damn tired from answering either e-mails or calls all throughout the night/morning from Mr. P. He is so indecisive, he can’t seem to grasp the concept of making a decision on his own. But I would rather have input then to be disappointed like I have in the past.

My Horoscope for Today:

The strongest substance in nature is water — it knows how to move around obstacles. That brain of yours is in hyper-drive today, so make the most of it! Your rational side is especially powerful, so it’s a good time to deal with practicalities and the basics of getting through the day. Still not done clearing the air? Still feel as if there’s something you need to say? Well, go ahead. Just make sure you’re finished by tonight, because the heavens are ready to banish all such unpleasant moments to the past. To cooperate, all you have to do is finish up on that diatribe you started days ago — and then resolve to let it go, permanently. Are you up for it or what?

WHAT! I am too tired today to even think straight. I have yet to catch up on my much-needed sleep. As far as my brain being on “Hyper-Drive”…. I don’t think so, I need a pick-me-up. If I was home, I would be asleep right now. I have promised a co-worker that I would have dinner with him. We had a pretty bad falling out about 6 months ago, and really haven’t spoke much since. I was surprised when he asked me to join him. I guess that’s what my horoscope means by “Clearing the air”, It’s a good thing to get past this. It’s 2010, My Year, let the past be the past.
