A week!!! Am I getting on track or what??

Okay-so it has been exactly a week and I'm back on here updating my blog!!! Shut the front door!! I'm done - patting myself on the back isn't a position I'm comfortable with, but I'm going to get better at it. I am one of those people who require alot of positive reinforcements, and unfortunately, I haven't been getting them either in my job or at home, so I have decided to start it for myself. Hopefully others will pick up on this and take over this oh so important job that I have!!

What a crazy week this has been! My heart goes out to those in the Joplin, Missouri area who were hit with the nasty storms/tornado's!!! I've been glued to my TV set watching as much as I can - it makes me feel more connected I guess. I told my hubby this am that I was going to donate $$ to the RedCross. I have lots of clothes that I can donate as well - but will do that after they get their housing situation all lined up. I can't imagine sending down a bunch of clothes and items until they get a place to live established. Hopefully there will be others thinking along this same line.

Getting geared up for the weekend!!! I'm taking tomorrow off - going for a much needed pedicure with a girl-friend, I can not wait!!! Then another friend has a birthday tomorrow and my hubby's is on Saturday so we are having a combined party of Sunday for the birthdays! I have invited about 25 people over, we (my hubby) is going to smoke a turkey and deep fry one as well. So I gotta remember to get those out of the freezer tonight so we can marinate them Saturday night - oh they will be delicious!!! I cannot wait!!

Taking home good ole KFC tonight for supper - this is my hub's favorite so this will be his birthday supper!!! An easy night for me in the kitchen!!!

Going to sign off for now, I'll be back now I just know it!!!

Wow - I am such a slacker!!!

Ok, so it has only been a couple of years......who would have thought that I haven't been back to update this!!!

So life was a roller coaster for the last couple of years, maybe I have my head on, maybe I don't!! We'll see what happens!!!

My son has joined the Marine Corps - he's been in 2 years in December and is now deployed to parts unknown!! OPSEC tells us that we can't know where they are at because of National Security - okay, just let me know he's okay for the love of God!!! I know he is, but it is still soooo hard to have him away. He's my one and only child, so he has to handle his mother, mothering him all over the place!! I don't think he minds much - he's pretty used to my ways by now!! My problem currently is not being able to touch him and look in his eyes to know that he is okay - I will get that chance soon tho - the end of September and he will be back in the states!! Woo Hoo!! I can't wait for the moment that I will first see him, and it is suppose to happen on my 50th birthday!!! I'm sure I will be back many times (at least I hope) harping about what a great guy he is, but that is my job, right???

Also, I've kinda moved from more primitive/crafty ideals on decorating to junk - that's right - junk!!! It really just speaks to me for some reason!! Hopefully, I will be able to get my act together soon to make a difference on my home. I know I will!!!

Enough for today - gotta finish my 9-5 job!!! Thanks for reading if you are and if you didn't come today - you missed out on ME!!!!
