Two road trips today!

So in a few minutes, I will be leaving on my way to drive to pick up my sister from Norfolk  for Thanksgiving, and a surprise for her from Richmond.  This should be exciting.  The "surprise" will be ready for delivery at 1200 noon. I can't say what that surprise is until I deliver...hehe. I am excited for the look on her face.  I have three hours round trip of driving to do, this should be an all day event. I will let you know about the "surprise" later.  I'll even post pictures.

Dentist visit

I just got back from the dentist, the entire left side of my face is soooooo numb, and I am soooooooooo sleepy.  I had to get a deep cleaning and next week I get to do this again on the right side of my face, then I get to get alot of other massive dental work done in the upcoming months to correct some things. Wisdom teeth pulled, implants put in place of molars that are so worn down...its going to be great. I hate the dentist, but I must take care of my teeth.  They are of course the windows to your health or so they say.

So that is all that has been going on in my world lately.  Started out with a toothache and then now I have to do over 7000.00 worth of dental work. Thank God I have the funds for that...I would never have been able to get it done a year ago.  My catastrophic gap will be maxed out after the next two procedures...hehe. Then the rest I pay for. A total of 5 procedures.  They said that my one tooth breaking was due to calcium deficiency as I had the tooth to show them and was due to that. So now I am also taking vitamins and calcium. teeth got worse after Peanut was born.

My kids Christmas is coming along, almost done with all the shopping...Black Friday I am going to only a handful of check out a couple of things but not sure if I am buying any of it, just want to see what is out there. I will try to avoid the hoardes of my PX, Kohls and possibly only Target this year.  Still need to grab a few things for my hubby.

My sister and I will be going and shopping it should be fun.
I have to pick her up tommorow at 1, so that will be cool.   We are having 4 guests this thanksgiving and possibly another 9 more...that should be interesting.  Well, my meds are kicking in, my face is still numb and I am very drowsy now...

Not dead :)

I have been so neglectful...sorry.  I did not die. I was just living life out here.
This weekend was a-mazing! I had a blast.  My friend raised 140.00 of her goal, and that was good. She is still raising money, so if you could could you check out this link and donate $5.00, its for a good cause--Help the Homeless, she is donating her money to use towards teaching the homeless computer skills so they can get a job-this was her way of reaching out without just giving it to a church and not really knowing what they were going to use it for, this way they can try to help themselves. I thought it was great, and it's tax deductable.

This week while living life out here, I managed to go on two playdates with my daughters, which was fun. Went to dinner with my husband, and had dinner with my family out, and had a lunch date with my husband and visited with my best friend.  So it was a good week so far, and it's only Thursday.

Today I am having a friend over and another playdate, and tommorow I am taking the girls to bounce room and then I have a private party to attend tommorow night at Fly Lounge.  I am trying to get my networking together... to meet more people and possibly go into promotions? I don't know, I think I have a knack for stuff like a part time gig.  I have met alot of people the last few days, and they seem great and I have been getting alot of invites.  EEK...I can't be in three places at once though!

Things are looking up and up on the friend situation.  I talked to the bestie...she is just depressed.  We had a great four hours the other day laughing and talking though, catching up and playing with the kids. It was nice. The holidays are around the corner and my sister and some friends are coming so that will be great.   We are also going to my best friends house the day after to have dinner, yay. Leftovers...I am taking ours to her house. Hehe so we can try to clear out some food. For Christmas I am going with my sister and kids and seeing my parents, we leave here on the 19th. My hubby is coming a few days before Christmas and is then going to go back to work.  I will spend New Years in Savannah this year, I am going to RSVP to some location and ring in the new year with my sis. Yay.  Only bad thing is Jere won't be there, but I promised my sister I would spend it with her, and he said it would be fine.  She is in the Army in AIT and relies on me for alot, since she is here in our area I am not leaving her hanging and she asked months ago and we agreed.  I love my little sister. She is the bestest!  Love my hubby too for not being even just slightly upset. I will make it up to him. :)

Pictures from Fly Private Friday's, and our own camera shots...

this picture was taken by Garai Rice
He had us pose doing silly stuff. So go check out his gallery. We are on several pages.
Here are my pictures:

Everyone kept asking me if I was a model...okay whatever.
I wanted to tell them, I am currently unemployed, never been a model, and I'm in my thirtiees and married with three kids. I think I did tell some people that.
We were treated like celebrities though and we were in VIP and got free perks just for promoting there that night.  That was the most inexpensive night I have ever had--it was free. It was great!  Met a few great people too, so glad to have went out. My back did not hurt one bit and although there were stairs, I did not trip going up or down either way! Yay for me!

thanks for all the well wishes, and the comments on my last post. I think I am going to take the job offer.  My back is feeling much better, yay for prescription drugs, needed them to get the muscles to untense. It was crazy excruciating pain...but I am just about all better now and completely off my meds.  They are stashed away in case of another emergency.

Sorry I missed out on the whole Happy Veteran's Day blog, but I did tweet it, and then spent time with my family.  My hubby had to work so I got to spend time with him after 1 pm, he came home after a half day and he has tommorow off.  Needless to say we are watching da Bears and having a couple few beers, kiddos are asleep and off in dreamland.

Just wanted to hop on here and say thanks. 

Tommorow night I am going to go to a benefit for the Homeless at Fly Lounge here in DC.  That should be fun. My girlfriend Roxzanne is hosting it, am super excited about that. I get to dance for a good cause.  It's called Dance for the Homeless at Fly Lounge.


Will post pictures, will make sure this time to take a bunch!

Sorry haven't checked up on blogs in two days, I will try to catch up this weekend. Love to read my subscriptions and love to read what you all are going through, doing or sharing, it's an inspiration to me and makes me feel like I am making some friends on here. Thanks!  KEEP BLOGGING!

((((Big HUGS))))

Good for you, Crazy!

I was at the commissary today and this woman bumped into me...I said "excuse me, my bad" she looked me up and down and was like " you are excused, how rude." i replied, "no what is rude is you, I didn't see you so I said excuse me, my bad, now how is that rude?" she went on to pull rank "well, I don't have time to sit here and argue with you, my husband is a Sgt in the Army and he's getting pinned today I have to go, I don't have time to argue with the likes of you."  I was like, " so what does that have to do about the price of tea in china? Since you are wearing your husband's rank on your shoulders, let me give you something, my husband is a Sergant first class in the army and he's not getting pinned today, but you sure will with that attitude of yours if you don't get out of my face with that garbage!"  Needless to say she apologised-half heartedly and walked away.

I was thinking to myself, good for you, crazy...cuz both of us were crazy to even go there. I never do, but I became the I DID...because she was really effin rude!  I hate this place.

I hate these women who actually run around like that and act like that and today it seems like I did the same thing...can any of this ever be forgiven, I don't want to become one of those...and now I am guilty.

She urked me and it was provoked though I swear...she didn't have to go there with that. Who cares?  Last time I checked it was their career. Not ours.

Speaking of the career front though, I have applied to another position, I am negotiating my salary and my former employers will be surprised because it seems like the contract is the new contract at the same store I was in. Yay for me. New bosses...same people.  I wonder how their faces are going to look when I show up in there being the head bitch in charge?  That is if I take it. The job does not start until April though, but the vacancy for it was announced last week.  I have time.  Lots of time, its not urgent for me to go to work, I just want to go back to working and doing what I love to do.

Excited about the possibilities, who knows maybe another position will come to strike my fancy and I won't go back to that place again...but the offer the new company is giving me is almost too irresistable...almost.  It's way more than I expected, but the work is alot more than what I am used to. It will take alot of due diligence and prayer because I don't want to be one of those people who go back to a place that has an agenda or a grudge to carry with me to I am glad I have until January to decide to take the position and name my pay-to an extent.  I also need to make sure that I am 100% going to go in there with a great outlook and with an open mind and heart, otherwise I will become just like they are and not be who I am.  I am a company minded individual and a team player, I don't like self-serving, coniving, backstabbing or shady people when it comes to business so I have alot to ponder.  The new contract though is offering me to be their boss, I fit the requirements to be a logistics director, so that is great.  I have to think and pray.  I have to pray real hard so that my heart is right in whatever decision I choose.

Maybe this is God's way of telling me that it will be okay. The new contractors have been very kind and very eager to have me join their crew. I am excited..but I will have to decide by January. My husband says to go for it, he says it would be great to see their faces, and have them for once walking on eggshells, but that is not what I am about. I would only take the job if I could give it 100% and also not take anything away from them unduly or do anything to undermine or be just as low as they are.  That is going to be hard.

Ok I have rambled enough.

What should I do?

Subject: My ER ordeal

My 5 hour ordeal in Er due to back spasms. Hurt my back walking upstairs last night (Friday) I am so drugged n so tired... Goes in and out. Back feeling better but this blog is to bitch about the visit... 5 hours! A first. Was seen in 2 but stayed for four-got shot with toradol and they sent me home with a slew of meds at 3 am - I did get best sleep ever though.

Today ventured with hubby and kids to the commissary on belvoir and saw some former co-workers who was glad to see me it was great! Even hugged Ms Carol and Aaron I missed them! Also seen my bestie we have plans to get together on Wednesday, yay! She's had a lot going on.

Last week went to a meetup where the organizer and I were the only ones to show although 5 others had rsvp'd yes. It was fun tho having our kids play. Have a few events I am going to attend in the future tho it's promising.

Just need a girlfriend or three that I can call who can be there who,s nearby to help me or rescue me or just have an understanding when gee I don't know-fall upstairs! :)

Also just need a friend to have coffee with, shop with, go out with, get nails done or just talk or laugh with!

As a child I made friends seamlessly and easily. Here I feel like I have to struggle to keep friendships or it takes everything I have just build them-without the same return that I am giving out the return is unbalanced it is ridiculous! Wondering if I treated people like this before and other girlfriends said that I didn't so unsure what type of karma or lesson this is??

Maybe I just haven't met the right people.

People are Illogical unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tommorow. Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vunerable. Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest minds can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds. Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs. Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them. Help people anyway.

Give the World the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you have anyway.

Fort Hood

Prayers go out to the families of the 13 people killed at the soldier processing center at Fort Hood this afternoon.

2 possibly 3 shooters could have been involved.  There was three seperate shootings on base, but the 7 were killed in the Processing center.  30 have been confirmed injured. One shooter has been caught. 
There was another shooting in the theatre and a seperate location on post as well.

Please say a prayer for the familes of the soldiers injured.  These were people inprocessing or getting ready for a deployment that where involved according to news sources.  The story is still developing.

I have been talking to a friend of mine of fb about it who is locked down in her office. The entire post is on lockdown.
