Okay I did our taxes and now we just have to wait and see if it was accepted by the IRS and then sit back and wait for our refund. This will be our best refund yet, thanks to the purchase of this house. LOL. I love my house. Let me go clean it. I still can't find my digital camera. :o(

Super Bowl Threat

Super Bowl xxx|x is here this year and this town is already getting crazy. Normal hotel prices have been raised as much as 5 times the normal price. We did not raise our prices and the lodge, but all of our lodges in FL are booke even as far as Keywest,Pesacola and GA. CRAZY. I'm ready for tall the parties. LOL.


I forgot what it was like to sit in bed and check email. I'm actually doing my blogg as I sit here in bed waiting on Mianna to get ready for school. I have so much to do today on my 1 and only day off this week. Yesterday the cable guy come buy and put up anther outlet for me and I had him put it on the far wall by the fireplace and a little hight on the wall since we will put our flat screen tv there. LOL. I'm planning for the future. lol we also got another digital box for our bedroom so now we can watch on demand in our room and and the livingroom. Mianna has no box in her room but maybe she will get one later on. anyways, I have to drop off the bugg. I'll blogg later on. bye.

Start cleaning

Well guys, Mianna had her first sleep over last night and on a school night too. eheheh. Her friend Jenny really needed to use our computer and so she just came over after school and spent the night here. This morning I took them to school and then headed over to the apartment to start moving out more stuff. I just had a few breakables that I wanted to move over slowly and it looks like I might have to make one more trip and it will all be done and we can start cleaning. I hate this part of cleaning and this morning I was so irritated just thinking about it. Rich said he would clean tonight and I'll also do some on Friday my only day off. I'm working this Sat to cover one of the girls that took some time off. We are loosing yet another employee and will be so short handed. I'm thinking about changing my schedule and if I get to I'll be home more and making a little less pay. I have no idea what to do, but I do miss being home at night and it's just so hard when I'm up in the day and ready to work but I do love being home all day just able to decorate and clean up and run errands. I'm so back and forth when it comes to my schedule. I do love have free time in the day to do things, with less traffic and people out at the stores. Nights work for me, since I’m such a night owl. I have to talk it over with Rich some more and see if we can come up with a solution. LOL. Listen to me reasoning with my self on my blogg. This blogg has become real helpful with clearing my thoughts and remember what I have done in the past. LOL. Okay, so back to work for me, I’m working on taxes too. Trying to see if we will get a good refund and I hope to have it done today. Not to mention I still need to put away the stuff I took over from the apartment and look for my digital camera. My family and friends you know I miss and love you all, sorry for not calling and I promise to send some pics of the house. Talk to you all later.

Car shopping

We are still up in the air with what to buy, but we had so much fun on Friday when we test drove the Mazda 3, Nissan Murano and Nissan Pathfinder. I really liked the Mazda 3 it's so cute and it had both standard and automatic. But I fell in love with the Nissan Pathfinder. It is really big and of a lot of space for us, but I just love the 270 horsepower and it drives like a luxury car. O man I really want that one. Rich likes the smoky gray color and I like the pearl white or silver. But the price is a little bit high. If we get it without all the fancy stuff we could save so much. I'm not sure what we plan on doing but I think we will save up some and buy our new car by April. I think we will use the savings and tax money for a good down payment and get a lower monthly payment at a good interest rate. I want to save up at least 4 or 5 thousand by April will have to be pretty tight with our expenses these next few months and after Feb. no more payments to the apartment and that will help out big time. Feb first we have to pay rent and mortgage so we will have a pretty tight budget. Rich and Mianna went to the commissary yesterday and I must say it feels so good to have food in our new fridge. I'm having a technician come out tomorrow to fix the water dispenser in the door since it's not working properly. This fridge is so cool I love it. I kind of want a bigger one, so we have 30 days to keep shopping and decide on taking it back and trading it in for another. Our space can fit a much bigger side by side if we like. Anyways, I better get in the shower and get ready for work, I have to run to Comcast and the post office before work to make an address change.

Saturday, January 22, 2005


LOOK at AVENN he is so big now. I talk to Myke the other day and he is already walking =o) man they grow up too fast.

Kenmore Elite

We bought our fridge yesterday and will have it delivered some time between 4-7 today. I'm so excited to fill it with food and be able to cook again. We got it for less than 1000 at Sears Outlet in Mandarin. It has a little scratch but it is worth the savings of close to 300 bucks for that small scratch. The fridge is brand new with the Stainless Steel front and black on the sides. It will match our black front stove that is also a Kenmore. Ill post pics when we get it in today. LOL.

Wednesday, January 19, 2005


My friends baby boy is so cute. I have new pics, but ill have to make the file smaller when I get home and I'll post them. Check out the link above

The Move

We did it!!!! It took us only 3 hours to move over the bulk of the stuff with 2 trips in the 14 ft Uhal truck.Rich had a friend from work come help at 3 and we finished by 6pm.We continued to pack up at the apartment until 10pm and then we were so pooped that we did the last trip this morning at 8 and turned the truck in at 11am. Rich and Mianna are back at the apartment taking car of some last minute stuff and washing the dog before they bring him over. I was just setting up the bathroom supplies and getting some things put away. The house is so full to the max with boxes and furniture just half scattered in spots. We should have it all set up and in place, within the week. Our new phone line is having some problems so I have to call Bellsouth and have them fix it. We got Comcast digital cable and cable for our computer and man it's so fast. I bought a PCI wireless card for Miannas computer and I installed in on my own and so now her PC is wireless.As soon as we get things set up and looking right I'll take some pics and post them. I better get back to work now before I get caught taking a break. LOL

LA CONCHITA, California

Snoop Talk

Okay so I was checking out the Urban dictionar and there is no meaning for the word forshisal. LOL I belive it mean for sure. or for real. They did have a meaning for my nizzle. forshisal my nizzle dizzle. LOL> okay so I was listening to a new song on the radio by snoop and it's funny that here in FL they don't beeb parts of the song that I know they would in CA. I guess the FL radio sensor people have no clue what snoop is singing so they don't beep it. Anyways. here are some of the lyrics from the song and they play the real version here.

"Drop It Like It's Hot"
(feat. Pharrell Williams)


[Chorus - Snoop Dogg]
When the pimp's in the crib ma
Drop it like it's hot
Drop it like it's hot
Drop it like it's hot
When the pigs try to get at ya
Park it like it's hot
Park it like it's hot
Park it like it's hot
And if a nigga get a attitude
Pop it like it's hot
Pop it like it's hot
Pop it like it's hot
I got the rolly on my arm and I'm pouring Chandon
And I roll the best weed cause I got it going on

[Verse - Pharrell Williams]
Uh! I'm a nice dude, with some nice dreams
See these ice cubes, see these Ice Creams?
Eligible bachelor, million dollar boat
That's whiter than what's spilling down your throat
The Phantom, exterior like fish eggs
The interior like suicide wrist red
I can excercise you, this can be your Phys. Ed
Cheat on your man ma, that's how you get ahizzead
Killer wit the beat, I know killers in the street
Wit the steel that'll make you feel like Chinchilla in the heat
So don't try to run up on my ear talking all that raspy shit
Trying to ask me shit
When my niggaz fill ya vest they ain't gon pass me shit
You should think about it, take a second
Matter fact, you should take four B
And think before you fuck wit lil skateboard P


[Verse - Snoop Dogg]
I'm a gangsta, but y'all knew that
Da Big Bo$$ Dogg, yeah I had to do that
I keep a blue flag hanging out my backside
But only on the left side, yeah that's the Crip side
Ain't no other way to play the game the way I play
I cut so much you thought I was a DJ
[scratches] "two!" - "one!" - "yep, three!"
S-N double O-P, D-O double G
I can't fake it, just break it, and when I take it
See I specialize in making all the girls get naked
So bring your friends, all of y'all come inside
We got a world premiere right here, now get live!
So don't change the dizzle, turn it up a little
I got a living room full of fine dime brizzles
Waiting on the Pizzle, the Dizzle and the Shizzle

Pistol whip you, dip you then flip you
Then dance to this motherfucking music we crip to
Subscribe nigga, get yo issue
Baby come close, let me see how you get loose!



Freak Dancing

Read about the freak dancing in Lemoore, CA. LOL..... too funny... it was on the radio this morning here in FL, I guess it's making headline news. Incase you have been living under a rock for a few years you can check the meaning of freak dancing out in an urban dictionary. To me it the same thing as dirty dancing, maybe just a little bit more crazy for today. I did a google on freak dancing in Lemoore and it come up with more than one link.
Dances Cancelled in Lemoore

High schoolers 'freak' themselves out of a prom

January 11, 2005

LEMOORE, Calif. -- Fed up with students' racy moves, a principal has taken the unusual step of canceling the rest of this year's school dances.

Principal Jim Bennett of Lemoore Union High School said he warned students at a winter formal dance last month to either quit dirty dancing or face the possibility of not dancing at all.

But he said the students continued ''freak dancing,'' a form of sexually suggestive dancing.

The ban on dances includes the school's Sadie Hawkins dance in February and the junior and senior proms in the spring, but Bennett said they could be rescheduled if students modify their behavior.

Organizers of the Sadie Hawkins dance, a fund-raiser for the school's FFA Organization, formerly Future Farmers of America, are working with Bennett to come up with regulations, which could allow that dance to go on.

One idea is to let students sign a form stating that raunchy dancing will get them kicked out. Students hope regulations could lead to the reinstatement of dances.

''Some students save up all year to buy a dress or rent a tuxedo and buy flowers for the prom,'' said student body president Zohra Lakhani. ''To crush everyone's dreams, it's not fair.'' AP

Monday, January 10, 2005


I might have found the SUV that is perfect for us. We do love to travel by car and this new hybrid by Toyota can go up to 600 miles before it needs gas. Man, if I only had this car when we use to drive to SD from Lemoore. LOL. I'll just wait till spring to buy my new car. RICH>>>>>> I want that one. I don't know I'm still in love with the Infinity SUV and also the Nissan Murano. HELP> ehehhe. I could get a write off on my taxes if I buy the hybrid. LOL


Okay today I'm going nutts with all these callers calling in with some of the thickest southern accents I've ever heard and this one lady called in and all I could understand was cancelation. Most of the time my hair stands up when I hear a thick souther accent. I just can't stand the sound of it. HELP LOL.

Working Late

Okay it's Monday the worst day here at CRC and I'm working pass my normal scedual to cover someone who called in sick. It's a good thing I'm working with my good buddy Merranda. We get out of here at 11:30 and she is giving me a ride home. I will have to get up at 5am to take Rich to work and the later on I'll head over to the house since they will be painting our bar wall. Ugh it's only 10 and we have 1 1/2 hours to go. :o(

Jan. is hot

Yes we are blessed. This weather is nicer than San Diego it seems. eheheheh LOL.No, it's real similar to SD. We have had summer like temps for the past two weeks. I can get up at 5am and walk the dog in my tank top or t-shirt and NO jacket. Today I put on a tank top and really wanted to put on my flip flops, but I need a pedicure so bad. I'll have to get one if this weather keeps up with temps in the high 70's. The evening and morning have fog and it feels so strange to see fog in FL. When we were living in Lemoore there was no question we would see fog this time of the year and it was really thick and horrible fog. Well, I'm just feeling a little spoiled with such beautiful weather here almost in the middle of Jan and some people are knee deep in snow. Will I ever get a chance to use my fire place?? Mianna is eager to use the fireplace to roast marshmellows and I'm not real sure if we can do that. HELP???? Anyone? LOL.

Thick Shake

Thick shake or thin? Why you ask? My friend here at work is from Australia and she told me she was going to McDonald to buy a thick shake. In Australia they call milk shakes, thick shakes. I just think it's so funny. She also informed me that they call cookies biscuits and biscuits are called scones. LOL ehehhe. I can't wait to visit Australia one day. My friend Liesel has the cutes Australia accent and she says the cutest things.

Rent per day

I went into the office here at the apartment yesterday to find out how much rent we will have to pay in Feb. and they broke it down by the day. I don't know but it just sounds so much better to say we pay 43 buck a day instead of 1290 a month. That made me start to think, Hmmmmm. so we will be paying only 16 days in Feb. and Also we pay our first mortgage in Feb. We are just having to watch our funds until we are totally paid up and out of the apartment. I'm so so anxious for that day to come. I'm just a little worried about having to deal with pickup and drop off of Mianna to school. Looks like I'll have to come up with some thing quick to make it worth our while. I just don't want to have to change my work schedule since I really like the hours I have now. If have to pay for after school care again, I'll do it. It will be about 55 bucks a week. :o( sucks but we have no bus in our neighborhood and anyways she is out of the district to continue going to her school. I really don't want to change her out of schools so late in the year. Kids get so messed up when you do that to them and at her age it's a little harder since she has made such good friends. I'm already making a big sacrifice by working the hours I have now.I never get to be with my family on Sunday's and I also never eat dinner with them. I need to start looking around for a different job as soon as I can handle the travel with a reliable car and maybe I can have the weekends off. I'm just not sure how Ill be able to manage my schedule for now. I have always been there for my girl and now it's like I can't help her with school work or cook her dinner. I'm only there in the mornings. Okay so back to the subject of Rent per day. I just thought it was neat to figure out the price per day rather that the price per month. My superviser her at work has a granddaughter who live in some townhouses down the street from our neighborhood and she only pays 400 a month. They told me that it use to be military housing but it was remodeled and updated. The outside of the townhomes, look so much like the old housing in SD and Hawaii. The funny thing is that we thought it looked like military housing the first time we drove pass it. I can't believe rent on that townhouse in Green Cove is only 13.33 a day. wow. what a steal of a deal. I would never live in military housing again and it took me close to 15 years to figure that out.

Craigs List

I found this beautiful house for rent on Craigs List, I wonder who it belongs to????hmmmmmm LOL. I'm at work just goofing around and for some reason I decided to check craigs list to see what it had. LOL. I miss YOU all in SD.

Ice Box vs. Refrigerator

Okay I found an ice box I like. I remember when I was little and my dad use to get made at me for calling the refrigerator and ice box. I guess back in his day they really had ice boxes and in our day we have refrigerators. I do like this frige, I'll have to run down to the Sears Outlet and check it out.

New House smell

I'm still working on the move and it seems to be taking forever. Friday after Mianna got out of school we headed over to the house with a car load of stuff and we also took Duke with us. We gave Duke a shower outside in the backyard and so we wouldn't bring his stinky butt butt into the house and he was so excited. Duke ran around to every room and had to look out each window. His feet sound like high heels tapping on to the wood floors in the family room and kitchen. After unloading the car we took a much needed brake by just laying on the brand new carpet in the Office/guest bedroom. The smell of brand new house is much better than the smell of new car. We are shopping around for a new car now, but I'll give us till April to have it done and maybe a little sooner if we find a good deal. I think Rich has decided to buy a truck and so we will have lots of space to hall around things we might need for the house. The kitchen is almost completely moved over and I have more cabinet space than I thought.I will actually be able to fit all of my things and still have room to spare. I got liners for the cabinets and plan on lining every cabinet on monday, including the cabinets under the sink in both bathrooms. Monday I have to be at the house by 10 since they will be patching up the drywall at the bar area behind the sink. We are still shopping around for our refridgerator and I hope we find one by the end of the month. After this move I hope we stay put for the next 3 years and then maybe we will move again and buy another house.

Finally a Day Off

I'm trying to enjoy my day off and just catch up on some house chores, plus start moving over the kitchen to the new house. I wish I could just hire someone to do it all for me. I'm so lazy on my days off and I just feel like being a bum all day. I think I might go buy some paint and try painting my family room. I love that I have Fridays and Sat. off, it give me time to spend with Mianna and Rich. Rich works this weekend so we might not see much of him. Tonight I’m supposed to meet a group of girls from work for dinner and drinks at TGIF and then a movie. We will watch the new one that came out today called White Noise. It's suppose to be really scary. I'm looking forward to the movie but I'm a little skeptical because it's staring Michael Keaton and he is never in good movies. LOL, So far it got bad reviews but I never pay attention to that when I go watch a movie. I just like to go see if for myself and then decide. I better get back to work now, or else I'll sit here and blogg all day. I have lots of WORK TO DO. HELP!!!!!!!!

The Detective and Killer

When I got to work at 1:30 today there was so much laughter going on and smiling faces. I sat down only to find out that I was about to play a card came with the group and join in on the laughter. We were playing this real simple game of Detective and Killer. The cards are passed out to the group and with only one Ace and King card. The King is the killer and has to wink at the players they suspect are normal player. IF you get winked at and your not holding the Ace, you have to say I'm dead. The detective has to try and find out who the killer is by guessing or catching them in the act of the wink. It was just so much fun. soooooooo funny. We were still answering calls in-between the game, but we were having a blast and got in a little trouble. Try and guess who was laughing the loudest? LOL

Sleepless Night

Last night I was having a hard time falling asleep and when I finally got some shut eye, I started having the strangest dreams. Nothing made sense at all. I remember at one point I was trying to get a soda out of soda machine and it got stuck. At another point in this dream I was on a beach looking down into a little box in the sand that had tiny baby like hands sticking out of the sand clapping. I know I was on my way to Disneyland, but I only remember standing in a long line and never seemed to move. All of my surroundings in the dream seemed to be familiar and also the people but I have no idea who I was around after I woke up. I wonder if I can find out what it means to dream of hands in sand? Anyone? LOL

B&B for pets

This bed and breakfast is right next to our neighborhood. It's so cool that it's so convenient. We might have to take Duke there when we travel this summer. We have our regular kennel in Middleburg, but this one is much closer. This brand new kennel just opened up at the Jax's airport and that can be real convenient also.

75 and 79 IN JAN

We have had 3 days of beautiful weather and the forcast for the rest of the week will be in the hi 75 and by Tuesday it will be we might have to turn on the AC again. I just love the weather here. More and more I start to believe I will never want to leave Florida.

Green Cove Springs

Our new house is located in Green Cove Springs. It's just past Fleming Island and Martha's Walk. We can see the St. John River from Miannas bed room window.

Bye Bye X-Mas Tree

I just finished taking down the x-mas tree decorations and all the other accents I had up around the house. It took me almost 2 hours to do and Mianna helped me some. Rich will take the tree out to the trash now and then we can clean up the pines and have space again. We will need the room to start packing up our stuff to move to the house. I'll look into renting a truck for a day or two on the weekends. I want to try and have most of the stuff moved out by the 15th of this month and maybe start staying in the new house by the end of the month beginning of Feb. We will have so much more space. The apartment is 1423sf, and the lanai is 111sf. The new house is 2015 sf. Mianna's bedroom in the new house is 1 foot bigger, so she might not notice much of a difference in her space, but she has a window with view of the water, way in the distance. Our bedroom in the new house is much smaller then the one here in the apartment, but we will have less stuff in it, since we have such a big walk in closet. Mianna will probably take one of the dressers in my room and maybe the armoire also. I think we will all adjust nicely to the new house.

Seeing Orange

More on Color

Red is the highest arc and outer edge of the rainbow, as well as the longest wavelength of color.

Let's see how red, orange and yellow fit into the scheme of things.


Red feels exciting. It is associated with power, passion, dominance, activity and heat. It represents youthfulness, impulse and intensity. Red is also a grounding color and can make you feel secure. It is associated with courtship and love. You've no doubt heard of "seeing the world through rose-colored glasses," meaning that everything seems fine when viewed through these magic lenses.

One medical study has gone so far as to suggest that chickens seeing red during the day are happier. And there's even a company that markets red contact lenses for chickens! Supposedly, these rose-colored glasses make them produce more eggs.

Then there's the evil twin of red, which can bring out rage, confrontation, fierceness, aggressiveness and bloody messes. But that bloodiness isn't always bad, because red can be connected to life and living, which we automatically associate with life-blood. In Christianity, for example, red stands for the blood of Christ. Red has been known to raise blood pressure. In casinos, red is widely used so that people will stay and continue to gamble, not realizing that time is flying by.

And red supposedly stimulates appetites so it is often used in restaurants.

It is also a color that demands attention. You see it in warning lights, fire engines and hydrants. Red is the highest arc and outer edge of the rainbow and the longest wavelength of color.

Red Decor : Red will wake up a room. It should be used as an accent in accessories, part of a pattern in upholstery or one impressive chair or bench. Red is a good color to have in a nursery because it stimulates and aids the development of neural connections in an infant's brain.


Feels citrus-y. You'd think orange would be comfortable in its own skin, but it's not. Actually orange has an identity crisis. It is always in second place right after red. Orange is the natural color of fire but red is the name used to symbolize it. Orange represents excitement and can be stimulating. It can make you feel like hurrying and that is why it's usually a color used in fast-food places and quick-mart-type stores. They want you in and out quickly, so the smart store designers use orange with the idea that it will facilitate that.

Orange Decor: Orange is good as an accent color coupled with brown or yellow. For use in a home, rust is the better shade as it is easier on the eye.


Yellow feels happy. But too much of a good thing can be bad. It's the most fatiguing color out there, especially pure, bright lemon yellow.

A yellow kitchen might look bright and cheerful, but be assured that there will be more arguing between cooks in this atmosphere. I imagine, too, that movie stars throw more tantrums in yellow dressing rooms.

Yellow should be treated like sunlight. You want it around for the happiness it produces but you don't want it to be overpowering. Soft yellow is pleasing. Bold yellow should be used as an accent. Other attributes include philosophical detachment, anticipation, hope and communication. It expresses activity and in some religions is associated with the deity.

Yellow is said to be a color that is admired by intellectuals, perhaps because is stimulates the memory. It is associated with enlightenment, both mental and spiritual.

A touch of yellow in every room might help in remembering where you left your keys, eyeglasses or the neighbor's phone number.

Yellow Decor: Yellow does well watered down greatly with white for walls. If a room receives little or no sunlight, the soft yellow walls help make the room bright. Yellow sings arias as a splash of accent in pillows, vases and other accessories. Yes, one grand chair or sofa upholstered in yellow and piped in blue can be smashing. Yellow also would be a good color for a workout room, particularly if aerobics were involved. It's also a good color for a game room, study or office because it helps to keep you attentive. A yellow bathroom will take the chill out of the air.

Orange is HOT

As most of you know by now I've been trying to pick a color to paint my family room and have my mind set on an Orange similar to that of terra cotta pot. I want the room to be light but slightly bright with a texture on the wall. I was just doing some reading online when I came across this article. I found it pretty interesting that there is a board of color experts that meet to decide on what the new color trend it going to be ... LOL. I have noticed that yellow and greens tamed down and orange had been popping up all over the place. I have always loved the color of orange because it reminds me of the sunset and that is one of my favorite times to look at the sky. I've always wanted to paint the Inside of my house green or yellow if I ever got the chance and I have that. I just thought it would be nice to do some research on paint colors and techniques till I decided on my final choice. I know its only paint and I can always change it, but I want to love it and leave it up for a few years or longer. Last night was a fun trial and error for us when we started painting Mianna's room. I get off work in 2 1/2 hours and I can't wait to go to the house and check out how the color in her room has dried and what it looks like in the day light. In the mean time I'll be checking out the Venetian plaster by BEHR. We used all BEHR paint for Mianna's room. Check out the website, they have this awesome tool to help you create a room. I also just purchase this online tool that also helps with room design, but I have yet to use with with my digital pics. I'll try to take more pictures of the house today. Soon Ill post more of my decorating ideas.

Our formal dining room

Our dining room I am still trying to come up the color for this room, but it will be the same as the formal living room. These are the first rooms you see as you walk in the front door. We will probably paint it last.


We just watched the ball drop in New York (on tv of course) We should be there next year in 2006.
