|I've got two pushers in my life. |
I love them both dearly.
T: She's a Pampered Chef pusher. Glad I could help you out to reach your goal. But let's get something straight up around here a'right? You and JP are the bakers in the family. Y'all need all that stuff and I'll be the one eating up your goodies. But for now you...you will have to listen to me whine when I get the dreaded hospital bill and keep on buying the Angel Soft tissue instead of Charmin. You know my ass can't take that much longer. And seriously, will my little bitty cramped apartment be able to hold the new purchases? Now I have to go get rid of something to make room for the new stuff. Y'all know that is the rule.
K: She's a social pusher. I did a bad thing and thought I could kick it like I used to last night. Um, can we say I am only about 65% well and really should have gone home around 10:00 but noooooo, we stayed out until after midnight and after partied here? I finally kicked all of them out around 4:00 AM and quickly proceeded to fall into a deep slumber until after 3:00 PM today. Ooops. Missed work. I'll work Saturday to make up for it.
So, how about you? Do you have pushers in your life too? Do tell.
Peace and Love Peeps. I gotta clean up a bit around here, go let my ass blow up, and get to bed. One of these days I swear I have a normal bowel movement again.
Peace and Love Peeps.

So there I am last night rinsing out a mug and it hits me.
I have running water available to me any time I choose.
I have the option to open my fridge and select from a number of choices provided I've stocked up.
I have the luxury of having grocery stores, convenience stores, drug stores, etc. literally in my backyard.
I can go and get what I want when I want.
Even though I have been sick, I have the blessing of life.
I have access to medical care.
All that hit me like a ton of bricks while I rinsed the decaf chai tea and soy milk from my mug.
It's time for me to express gratitude and be thankful instead of whining like I have been lately.
It's a beautiful thing peeps.
Peace and Love.

We've been trying to get tickets for the last hour. You know. Blowing up multiple computers, having multiple calls going back and forth to see who got what, if anything.
We were willing to pay $225.00 for a ticket. Then we said we'd settle for the $50.00. Just give up the tickets.
Lady luck was not on our side for the Seattle show.
Looks like a scalper might be getting some of our cash down the line.
Damn you pre-sale people snatching up all the tickets ahead of time.
All we wanted was a little PoPo in our life.
Screw that. A lot of pee.
You know what I am talking about. Come on. You've been there too haven't you?
It sucks. Royally.
Maybe I need to start doing some vajayjay exercises...
Tuesday, February 20, 2007
So, wasn't it about a week ago when I said I was finally feeling better? Well, I spoke too soon.
I got sick again Thursday. There was no playing around this time peeps. I ended up in the hospital. With pneumonia.
How ya' like them apples?
I'm home now and am feeling a bit better. Lets just say this shit is no fun nor is it a joke.
I can't begin to tell you how blessed I feel to have such great friends, that are my family too, that surround me. That have been taking care of me. That have been there for me. I love you all.
Marie, I will forever be grateful for you listening to your inner voice and coming to my rescue and convincing me that yes, indeed, my butt needed to go to the hospital. You are an angel among mortals and truly are a lifesaver.
Kyla, You are my soul sister and everything you've done in the past and especially right now means the world to me.
Marisol, You are a fantastic support, outstanding friend, and a fantastic gentle soul.
Ace, You are an amazing man who is going to make some woman very happy and lucky once she finds you and you find her. Keep those calls coming, even when I don't answer them. Your essence warms my heart and keeps my soul singing.
Walker, Always there with a helping hand. No questions asked. No explanations needed. Another angel among mortals.
And in case y'all are wondering, and I know you are, Pete has been here too. He took care of me for a bit Saturday morning before the worst of everything hit, has been checking in when he can't physically be here, stayed with me pretty much all day today, and calls about every two hours to make sure I'm good.
T and JP I know if you were closer you'd be here too.
For those of you who pray, will you keep me in your prayers? I'm not out of the woods yet and I need all the good energy I can get. Plus, I am really concerned there is something more going on with me. I mean come on. What 34 year old otherwise healthy women gets sick as easily and as often as I have since late September?
When I go back to my primary care doctor in 4 weeks for a follow up chest x-ray and check up, I have requested a complete physical instead of waiting until July, which is when I normally get my physical and yearly. I want it all tested. I need to know if there if there is something going on that I need to treat. This is getting out of control in my eyes. Know what I mean?
Whew. I'm pooped peeps. I'll be back later in the week.
Peace and Love.

I finally was able to keep some food down today. Me very happy.
Tonight I am going to have dinner with K but I won't be chancing it too much. Bring this girl a baked tater and let's call it good shall we.
Saw Pete for a bit today and he was acting a tad irritable. And peeps, I am looking extra special cute today, or so I have been told. My hair is all did. My makeup is applied well. I'm wearing a pinstripe pair of slacks, black stiletto heels, a starched white button down with a black fitted vest all topped off with the medium size hooka' silver hoops and there I am.
Boy howdy it didn't even seem to phase him. Guess we'll see what is up when we get together Thursday night.
Yea, you read that right. Thursday night. We aren't doing Valentine's Day. Hey, it really is all good.
I am not just saying that in an attempt to make myself feel like it is either. I am completely fine with not spending the day together.
See, here is how I feel about the day.
It's just another day on the calendar. It's an over commercialized day in which too many people place unnecessary expectations. If you need to set aside a day to tell those you love how you feel about them, then I feel you have underlying issues in your relationship.
Don't get me wrong here either. If you want to shower me with love and goodies I will take them but I don't need it to feel complete or feel loved. I may be in the minority on this but hey it's how I feel.
I told you I am more like a man than a woman didn't I? Guess that kinda' proves it huh?
Anywho, I have to get back to work. Hope things are good in your world.
Peace and Love Peeps.

The sun is shining. The temps are warm. My tummy is settled. Mo is a happy girl. Except...my boy left for home this afternoon.
T, You best get your ass up here soon. I miss you even more now than before.
Oh, and holy hell. I finally sat down to check my mail today. I've been really bad the last six months in regard to really reading and filing the important stuff.
Don't get me wrong. I pay my bills and take care of my business but I just haven't been anal like my normal self. Well, today I decide I'd go through the latest batch of mail and pay attention.
Guess what I found out? Are you sitting down? Welllllllll, I've been paying life insurance on the ex all this time!!!
Dee Dee Dee. There's my sign.
All I have to do is send MetLife a copy of the entire decree and they will backdate it. Thank god for small blessings.
And to top the Monday off. I have started my cycle. A week early. Oh yea.
It's a great Monday.
How's yours going?

That pretty much sums up my existence right about now peeps. Some solid food would be good right about now. Seriously.
Friday night I attempted to eat some bread and a side of mashed taters. Yea. Big mistake.
Yesterday I had some applesauce and a scrambled egg. Big mistake. For dinner, some bread and broth. Big mistake.
I swear I didn't think a stomach could make noises like that on empty.
And I throw this out to all of you, applesauce is made from apples which contain fiber. Is that really what I need right now? For real.
And can the artificial color and sugar in gatorade be good for me too? I know I need the extra stuff to make sure I don't get dehydrated but have you seen some of those colors? Crayon colors. Nothing real about them.
So, in case anyone is wondering, I am still suffering from this crap.
Other than this, nothing much to report in on.
We did miss some excitement last night apparently. See my "husband" and I stayed in. My gang went out and part of the crew last night was none other than Mary Kay Letourneau.
I don't condone what she did and since she lives up here it was bound to happen at some point. My girl K said people left her alone so that's good.
For now, I need to get cracking. Pics to download, some v day cards to possibly make, fam to see later for Sunday dinner. Well, I'll be the one eating the crackers.
Hope things are good in your world. Peace and Love Peeps.
PS: I don't like this new blogger.

Two of my bestest beaotches husband's need a place to crash at some point during the weekend and my place is closest for both of their needs.
I only wish I was feeling 100% for the company but oh such is the life.
Anywho, I am relaying the company coming and Pete went a little girly on me. He says to me, "Wouldn't he (meaning today's arrival) be more comfortable at my house?"
Um, nope. Don't think so. Thanks for the offer though.
I thought it was kind of cute as this was the first time a hint of the green eyed monster showed his colors.
Should I be worried that he didn't take my call earlier today and he hasn't called me back yet?
T, Your man made it safe and sound. I feel bad as I didn't stock the fridge in anticipation of his arrival. As soon as I let him in this afternoon I vacuumed. That's gotta count for something right?
Peace and Love Peeps. I gotta get back to work.

If you are interested in what I am talking about, click on the title above.
I'm not cool enough to post a youtube video. I am sure I could figure it out but honestly, I don't have the energy or patience to make it happen right now.
I ended up having to stay an extra night down south. I'm really off of my game in terms of packing. All that time off of the road took me out of my normal lunatic, over prepared, packing for just in case state.
Trust I will not make that mistake again. I am a girl scout at heart. You know, always be prepared and leave a place better than the way you found it. That's me.
See the crap that was yesterday put me behind but more than that when I got to digging and doing what I do, I found some not so pretty situations requiring my immediate attention. So, instead of driving home tonight, I'm hanging back out in my suite, parked in the north 40 once again.
Luckily the hotel had an extra room available and when I called, the reservations gal said my suite from last night was available. Thank goodness because I disinfected the hell out of the room last night and I'll probably sleep a little bit better tonight knowing no one else (I think and I hope) laid in the bed I'll be snoozing away in tonight.
Anywho, I had to break down and go to the shrewd and evil
I totally disagree with their business practices. Yes, it is true they are one of my company's biggest vendors and the prices are cheap but I, on principle, try to avoid the store. I don't want my hard earned money going to perpetuate their devil ways. I had no choice as I didn't leave the office until after 9:00 PM and this is the only store open 24 hours in the area. I couldn't drive to Target and get there before they closed.
Twice this week I have had to compromise my principles, bite my tongue, and enter the store; Sunday for the oil change and tonight to pick up airborne on the go packets (I am feeling a bit run down and achy so let's hope this will kick the crap out of anything that may be trying to invade my body), a pair of socks, a thong, and a pair of pants.
They got all of $29.80 from me tonight. Yes peeps. You read that right. Don't fall out. Me. Wal Mart. Unwashed new clothes.
I will be dealing with the heebie jeebies tomorrow as my privates, my legs, and my feet will be touching unwashed George khaki slacks, a random thong, and a pair of trouser socks.
Thankfully I work for a company with an endless supply of logoed polo shirts and carry an Ashworth golf pull-over in my car at all times.
I thought I had packed all of my hair stuff but nooooo. I don't have the antifrizz stuff so guess who may be fighting frizz on top of it all tomorrow?
I can't wait to get home tomorrow. Seriously. You have no idea.
Well, maybe you do...I bet you want me to be home again too so we can talk about some fun stuff instead of reading about my misfortune and whines. I'm even getting tired of myself.
Peace and Love...Keep them vibes coming beaotches. I still need 'em.

Ever had one of those days where nothing seems to go right for you? I had one of those days today.
First, I overslept. Gee imagine that. Go to bed after 12:30 AM and sleep right on through the 4:00 AM alarm. Sound too far fetched for you? Yea, me either.
So, I got to fight
In the fog. Fun times I tell you.
Wait. It gets better. I stop about two hours later to grab some sugar via a soda and something tells me to look at my bags.
Um, guess who grabbed the wrong overnight bag?
Guess who got to drive two hours back the way she came from only to turn around and drive back again and then some?
I finally arrived at the office at 4:30 PM. See, someone forgot about the protestors on I-5 for the soldier on trial going through his court martial.
It was a dang good thing I had jerky, oranges, celery, and soda in the car or I would have really been pissed off.
Peeps, I spent over 7 hours in the car for a trip that normally takes about 3.5 hours.
My lower back and ass are sore. I want a massage. I need sleep.
At least I got steamed veggies at Panda Express. That's fuel to keep me burning the midnight oil.
Oh, and here's something else to add to the day. After I picked up dinner, I realized I was on e and stopped at the local gas station to get gas. I go in to pay and as I am turning around proceed to run smack into a wire rack display of movies. The display proceeds to fall to the ground and DVD's flew everywhere.
Embarrassing...and a little painful.
The lady behind the counter looks at me like I was a crazy woman. I proceeded to tell her I was sorry, starting to pick up the movies, and she hands me a Mr. Goodbar and says, "Let me get those. You look like you need this."
Ah, the kindness of strangers. Or at the very least, the pity of a stranger on a poor sap like me.
Then I get to the hotel and guess who has to park in the north 40?
Anywho, I hope things are good in your world. Remember to keep sending me those vibes. You obviously can see I need them.
Peace and Love Peeps.

Holy Hell. I overscheduled myself this weekend and right this minute I am really tired and frustrated.
Don't get me wrong. I had a good time. I ended up not going to CA to be my girl's hair model and to support her but it was jam packed just the same.
I worked really late Friday, had dinner with two work peeps, and then ran some errands. Tra came over so we could catch up and since she was working until 11:00 PM, we ended up hanging out over here and we gabbed until 4:30 AM.
I was supposed to be doing laundry while we gabbed but I only got one load done. The rest will have to wait until later this week. Thankfully I did a load of delicates earlier in the week and the rest of my immediate needs are either clean or were picked up from the dry cleaners Saturday.
Saturday I worked a bit in the morning, had my brows done, ran a few more errands, and headed to Pete's. It was one of the girl's early birthday party and I couldn't miss that could I even though I have and had oodles of things to do?
Then, he and I stayed up until about 2:00 AM talking and snuggling. I was quickly woken up around 7:00 AM, which was a good thing since there were things to be done today. Pete made breakfast, we took my car in for an oil change, and I proceeded to catch up on some work, give us all manicures, and chill until the game started.
Congratulations to the COLTS. You did me proud. I knew you were going to bring it home.
I had to stop by the office on the way home to pick up a few files and my travel power cord. Y'all know what that means right?
Yep, I'm fixing to leave on a two day tour down South.
I just got home, loved on the kitties, checked the snail mail, scarfed down some roasted chicken and chopped broccoli and now need to get cracking on packing and the rest of the stuff I have to do before I leave at...are you ready? Freaking 4:45 AM.
You know you wish were me right about now dontcha'?
I'd love to tell you I'll be updating from the road but I know how the next few days are going to be. I'm telling ya' now there is no need to check back in on me until at least Wednesday night. My night that is. Ya' know, PST time.
Have a good couple of days. Send me some keep it cool vibes please. I am going to need 'em. Peace and Love Peeps.

Closing down the Last Supper Club. Great friends. Good times. On the streets of Pioneer Square. 'Nuff said.
Scooby snack in Queen Anne. Yum. Do you see the smiley face or do you see boobies?
Representing in the Chanel sunglasses. How do you like that zit on my chin? So pretty a'int it?
Give up the kitty cat crack and you can have the Uggs back.
Pete and I went to see Smokin' Aces last night. Great cast, good movie. I love that he gets my sense of humor. See, I am one of those who laughs at some of the "wrong" times. You know. I'm the only one laughing in the quiet movie theater. Random people look at you like WTF but hey, that's how I do.
Thought of M2 and T after the movie. We had dinner at Outback. Yummy shrooms and cow.
I grabbed the bill (a girl can pay too y'all) or at least I tried to treat. He paid me in cash later. The sweet little punk slipped a note and cash in my wallet for me to find this morning.
Anyway, he guessed the bill less $0.06. I'm the numbers beaotch and he guessed it that closely and proceeds to tell me with a big smile that he'd win the Price of Right showcase with an assessment like that. Again, may not sound so funny here but I was almost on the floor from laughing so hard.
And to continue with the nerdness, when we got back to my place he grabs the dictionary to see if I could guess a random word from the definition alone. He cracks open the beaten down, old college paperback dictionary and proceeds to read me the definition for has-been and gives me the hint of starts with h a. I guessed right. Ha! Take that.
Then I flipped the switch on him and read the definition of insolent to him. He got the same hint and he guessed correctly too. Right back at me babe!
Not sure why I am telling y'all this. It just seems like the right thing to do.
After about ten minutes of calling each other an insolent has-been because once you learn a new word you're supposed to use it as often as you can in a sentence but we both knew the words so it wasn't really necessary to call each other out was it? Anywho, I got a back rub and well you know...you do know right?
Remember how I said I've bonded with his girls? Well peeps, he's bonded with mine. Jasmine and Princess both cuddled with him at some point last night/this morning and being the good man that he is, he rolled with it. He even cleaned the box out this morning and took the poopie bag to the trash for me. Ahh, could this be love?
