Link Love Tuesday

Showing some link love...
post a comment and I'll check you out.

Have you ever seen a cotton field...let alone raw cotton? I never have, but Stormee gives us a glimpes. Kids say the darnest things and Miss Shadae is no exception to the rule. I don't know her, but you've got to love her.
Well, Fall is upon us and its time to get our wardrobe together. Budget? No problem. Can you sew? If so, Erica B. will show you some D.I.Y. style. Can't sew? No problem. The Budget Chic may inspire you with what she wears. Speaking of budgets check out Free Money Finance to find out the best and worst buys at warehouse clubs (i.e., Costco etc.).

Nic may fight like a girl, but the key is she's fighting all along bringing cancer awarness to us all. Looking forward to the "Fred(the lump) Is Dead Remission" celebration.

The Weekend Recap...

This was a busy weekend, but a nice one.

Spent some time with my parents on Friday evening. Then, I came home and stayed on the phone with Verizon til 3am; attempting to get my DSL line straight. The lady who was helping me was where...[you know not in the good USA] in China. She asked, had I heard about the problem with the milk. I said, yeah, it's killing people, mainly children. I asked her what was her government thinking. I told her, I was leary of anything that states "Made in China". I no longer purchase toys [especially the brightly colored ones] from China due to the lead problem. Luckily,I no longer really buy toys...we're at the stage where all my son wants is PS2 games or games for his other electronic systems. After all the test attempted, it was concluded that I need a new modem/router. So, I'm suppose to get a new one Monday or Tuesday. I couldn't believe we were on the phone that long. Especially, when I needed to get up to take my son to his football game.

The busiest day of the entire weekend was Saturday. I got up late and was running around trying to fix breakfast, walk the dog and get my son straight so we could get out of the house. Funny, when I opened the door it was pouring down raining...I had no idea. Usually, I can hear the raindrops hitting against the window. So, I was somewhat happy that the game was canceled. I had placed alot of my son items up for consignment at a children's consignment sale and I had to be there by a certain time to pick up the remaining unsold items. Then, I had to take my son to a birthday party on the other side of town. I dropped him off and went back on my side of town to finialize a cruise (I'm a PT Travel Agent) and then went back to pick my son up from the bday/sleep over party[he didn't want to sleepover]. I sat and talked with my girlfriend and her friends and family for a few hours. It was nice to chill and have an adult conversation. Again, I couldn't believe it was midnight when we left. I couldn't wait to get back on the other side of town to take my butt to bed.

Didn't do much today but cook and watch the game.
To top the day off the REDSKINS beat the Cowboys!!!
Great Weekend...how was yours?

A Family That Prey's...

I saw the movie tonight. Let's just say I'm glad I had some tissues in my purse. I'm not going to spoil it for others. I will say I liked the movie.

Please go out and support the movie and then later when the majority of folks have seen it, we can discuss it.

It's Been A Year...

since my son and I left his father's home. My son still misses being there, but he seems to have adjusted living in "our" home. I've adjusted, it's nothing like peace of mind. Sometimes, I don't know if I'm coming or going though. I wish I had some "me" time, but that will come. I'm working on that. The only drama I have in my life is that which my son's father attempts to create. However, the majority of the time it doesn't phase me. It's when you care that it hurts the most. When you don't care...or not as much you can begin to see the insecurities of another. Thus, the answer to "Why the drama when we've been apart for a year and you're doing "you"? Only he can truly answer that question...and so we will never know. But , my guess...insecurity, self esteem and among other reasons come to mind. A secure person doesn't have to tear another down in attempt to make themselves look "good".

To think this time last year I was packing and moving at the same time. I was so hurt, angry and disappointed. I felt betrayed by many. I forgive, but I don't forget!

So, today, my son and I spent Labor day together and enjoyed our day this year.
I'm looking forward to my [our] future and not looking back at my past.
