Christmas day 2006

Its 75 degrees outside and dady still wanted to lite the fireplace. Its so hot in here, but the ambiance surpasses the heat. I'm not complaining one bit. We are having a nice day and about to have xmas dinner. What's on the menu. We are having Kalua pork, corn on the cob stuffing (from the box) and zucchini, potato salad, white rice and that's it. For dessert we will have apple pie and French vanilla ice cream.

Christmas Eve

I woke up early this morning and headed in to work, after work I went to 3 different grocery stores with Rich to buy our Xmas dinner. Now I"m making decorative cut out cookies with Mianna. It's so nice to be home with my family enjoying the simple things. We will open one gift tonight, well Mianna will open one or maybe we will wait till morning. She got most of her gifts up front but I kept a few behind just for her to have some to open. This year is really simple for us and we didn't buy for anyone outside of the family. We did donate to a needy family here in Green Cove springs and I wrapped a lot of gifts for this needy family.

Snow in FL

I know it has been a long time since I wrote on this. I just to let you all know that I experienced snow in my county for 2 days in a row. It was flurries, and nothing stuck around, but as it fell from the sky you could see it build up on your windshield and then as you wipe it with the blades, it would gather on each side and then melt away. It's so crazy our weather, we had feezing temps for 3 days and then on the 4th day it was in the 70's and it's going to freeze again tonight. By friday we will be in the low 32's and probably have snow again. I'm off to bed. talk to you all later.

Vaction Adventures

Rich and I took vacation starting the 25th of October but didn't start our vacation journey till the 26th. We got up around 7am and left around 10:30am and drove down to Key West and got there after a 9-hour drive. When we reached the Keys the sun was setting and so it was nice to drive into the sunset. We were so excited to get there and we had a trailer reserved on base with MWR. We didn't plan to stay there, but they had an opening at the last minute for the next 3 days and so we were booked for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and we left the Keys on Sunday. We had planned this same trip last year but canceled it due to the hurricanes last year. We going down for this huge party called Fantasy Fest.. And let me tell you it was just that for us, a huge fantasy fest. All I can say is what goes on in Key West stays in Key West. We had so much fun walking up and down Duval Street and looking at all the wild dressed costumes or the lack of costumes for that matter. It was such an awesome time. The first day night we checked in to our trailer and then got a taxi ride that was latterly 2 minutes away within walking distance to the main street where we walked until we reached Fogertys were we had dinner and that was awesome. I feel in love with the way they made long island ice tea and so that became my drink of the night. The next few days we just hung out each night on Duval and ventured in to some of the clubs to dace ou booties off and then back to the room for rest, to get and do it all over again the next day. We had breakfast at a few hole in the wall places that were awesome. On Sunday we headed north to Miami to stay for a few days and that was like being in another world. Most people in Miami and not from FL, and speak no English. We stayed in South beach both nights and the first night I was on a mission to take Rich to his Birthday surprise and he was very surprised. We ate dinner at Nobu found inside the Shore Club hotel and we had the most relaxing sit and talk time at the Sky bar located right there in shore club and the feel of the Miami nights are just as you thought it would be, cool, relaxing and electric all at the same time. Let me see if I can recall what we had for dinner. For our drink we had a bottle of white wine from Italy it was #304 ehhehe. We couldn't read the bottle but Rich remembered the #.
For our entree we had Chilian Sea Bass Moromiso-yaki and Rock Shrimp Tempura (Ponzu or Creamy Sauce). We had some complementary shrimp appetizer and for dessert, we had the famous bento box, it's a chocolate soufflé with green tea ice cream. O my god I live for the bento box and wouldn’t be surprised if I try to make trip down to Miami every other month just to have it. We were going to go home but decided to stay one more night and have dinner at the place I’ve always wanted to go to, it’s called The bed. I saw this place many years ago on E TV and it just sounded like a neat concept. This place is set up with many beds all around the room and two beds in the center of the room. We had a bed off in the corner near the bar and it was just perfect for a quiet dinner out. I had a nice size 9oz lobster tail called Lobster Santos hence the name “Santos” its a
Caribbean Lobster, Baked Pineapple, Celery & Tomatoes with Coconut Cashew Ginger Sauce. It was mm mm good. Rich had the Filet Mignon Tenderloin with Herb Roasted Red Baby Bliss Potatoes, Shoestring Zucchini and Squash with Choice of Cabernet or Gorgonzola Sauce 36. We fed each other in bed and we also had a good bottle of red wine and to top it all off for dessert we had Fire and Ice Molten Chocolate Cake topped with Vanilla Rum Ice Cream with Carmel and Chocolate Sauces 12. The Fire and Ice was okay, the bento box defiantly puts it to shame. After we were done eating dinner we stuck around, because the restaurant turns into a nightclub and it was themed Al Capone night for a costume party. I was already dressed up a blond mistress, with my makeup done professionally by this lady down the street in a little spa shop. Rich was dressed in him Kenneth Cole from head to toe and it was looking hot. I tell you they do know how to party in Miami. I danced with a naughty nurse, Ali G, Lil John and Rich ehehhee. It was such a fun place to party. We got sleep and headed off to our hotel room, that was just down the way in what looked like little Spain or a Spanish town are of Miami. Over all we had a good time and those of you closes to us would love to hear all the juicy stories you know we have to many to tell and could never mention them in blogg. Eheheh. Yes life was full of fun and play for our vacation and it was long over due.

Yesterday my aunt called to tell me that grandma had suffered a stroke. She is in the hospital now and they really can't pinpoint when it happen, but the day she went into ER she had been complaining that her head hurt and her arm hurt. My mom was the one that was with here and I'm not real sure if they called 911 or if they just took her in. My aunt says that she has had some damage and it's evident in her speech and she is incoherent. They ask her what is the first name and she can say Evelyn but it's delayed. She couldn't give them her last name, but moments later would just blurt out her last name. Some of her speech is all jumbled and making no sense at all. I sure hope she is going to be okay. My grandma just turned 80 this year and I just spoke to her on Wednesday and she was telling me all about her new kitchen. She really is a strong lady and so I hope she pulls through this.

I'm telling you all,my hubby has got to be the most romantic man ever. He still continues to surprise me and it never sees to amaze me. The things he does for me are so little but makes me heart smile all day long, now thats some strong potion. It must have been a few weeks ago, he dropped by my job on base and gave me a little sticy note, that read, I was in your neck of the woods and just wanted to say that your my everything, "some thing like that, I actually took a picture of the sticky and still have it on my computer at work. This morning he had a check list by the bathroom sink and it said, Kiss virgi all over her sexy body. I smiled so big as I brushed my teeth. Then as I was walking into work this morning I heard someone say NO, stop , hey stay. it was my love in a distance, just jogging on base for the Navy 231st bday. He walked me to work and I was so turned on I just wanted to jump his sweaty bones that second, He loves me, that man really loves me. I love you Richie boy!

Numbers are haunting me.

I got off work today and decided to go grocery shopping and when it came time to pay the bill it freaked me out that my total was 166.66. I also got payed today at both jobs and it was 333 at one job and 777 at the other job. I'm just freaking out about the numbers and tomorrow is Friday the 13th. Maybe I should play the Lott, this might be a good luck thing and not a bad luck thing. I'm not real sure but I was the top seller that week at Bebe and my sales were 6666. I know this is probably all just silly, but I thought it was a little spooky, nex thing you know I'll gas my car and it will cost 33.33. I'm going to work tomorrow on my day off, but just to bring in some good over time money for our vacation we take in about 2 weeks. I need to get my but to bed, so I can get up at 5:30 and get ready for work, talk to you all later, have a safe Friday the 13th.

Last Friday we had the most serene and relaxing day at Ichnetucknee, where we went tubing down the river. I love that place and words could never describe the serenity that was felt that day. It was like we had the entire river to our selves as we tube down the river for over 1 1/2 hours. Along the river we enjoyed many turtles, birds and lovely wild flowers and it was just a priceless adventure.

Shades of Green

I know it has been such a long time since my last blogg. I forgot to tell you all about our fun weekend trip to Orlando. We stayed at our very own Military hotel called Shades of Green and it's located on the Disney resort grounds and it so special since it's only for military. We went down Saturday afternoon and stayed one night. The hotel is so beautiful and the pools are awesome. The first night there we went to Magic Kingdom and got on Pirates of the Caribbean first and then Peter Pan, Lelo and stitch and Space Mountain. After the park we walked around the Mall of millennia and then back to the hotel. We got up early Sunday morning and Mianna decided to sleep in, while Rich an I took a quick swim in both pools and sat in the Jacuzzi as well. We did go to that what we did after we checked in to the hotel and then we went to the mall to get starbuck and walk around a little bit. We had such an awesome time. Sunday we bought tickets to the water park, Typhoon Lagoon and had fun all day with all the water rides and we even road my favorite ride, over 8 times heheheh. We were just having so much fun it was a good family weekend getaway and we look forward to the next one.

Old and New

Erin in her room
Erins Moves
Aug. 2003


Sorry, I have been working like a mad woman ever since I got back from LA and today is such a rare moment for me, I only had to work at my regular job and so I'm home uploading my pictures from LA. I didn't take very many, but I'll post a few on flickr. So after we left the airport and headed back to Erins house to pick up her boyfriend Westin and then we went to eat at this cute Mexican returned. We had plans for the evening and headed back to the house to get ready for our night out. I wasn't sure where we were heading but after we got downtown Hollywood I recongnised the club was one that I had been too many years ago with Myke and Mary and now it was a not a rave but just a regular club. As we walked across the street to the club, we were crossing the street with Lloyd from Entourage. If you have no idea that is, it's one of my favorite shoes on HBO and Lloyd plays the secretary to Arie. Erin had recongnised him and asked if we could take a picture and so we stopped at that corner of the street while Westin took a picture of us. Lloyd was heading to the same club. We had so much fun , we watched DJ AM, that's the guy that use to date Nicole Richie off and on and he performed while the Parker dude, with all the tattoos played the drums and Too short rapped. It was such an awesome perforce and we stayed to watch the entire thing. After that we left to another club down the street and danced to 80 and 90's music, also some 60 and 70's. I was surprise I had so much energy since it was late, but really late for me since I was on east coast time and just couldn't believe how long my day was feeling. By the time we got home it was close to 3am and felt more like 6am for me and so I really didn't get to sleep at all. I was so jet lag, that I just lain in bed and stayed awake. The next day we had lots of running around to do and get things ready for the party the next day. We ate at this really good Cuban place and that was my first time to have Cuban sandwich and I really liked it. Later that day we just cleaned up at Erins parents house and got stuff ready or the party. I can't remember what else we did, but I think we ate out at another restaurant for dinner and it this was like an Irish place. After all that we just went home to rest up for the big day. We got up early Sat. Morning and we shopping at this ware house down town LA not far from China town and it was all vintage dresses. While we were shopping Erin pointed out to me that Michelle Williams from Brokeback Mountain was also in there shopping among us. She looks really tiny in person and her face is flawless. I can't believe she had a baby. I was really excited shopping in this huge warehouse with a famous star and everyone was getting undress right in front of one another since they had no dressing rooms. We had blast and Erin found a vintage 50's style bathing suit to wear for her pool party. I found a few dresses that were really brightly colored and cute. After all that the party was a success and I think everyone had a fun time. The taco guy she hired to cater was a THE BEST tacos and almost as good as my tacos ehehhe. I didn't want to get up the next mornig but I did and caught my flight to Arizona and had a 2 hours delay and was able to see Ron and Davina. I was so happy to see then since we haven't see one another in over 2 years. This was a rush story of what I did in LA, but I did mention all the fun parts.
seeing Lloyd while in LAMe , Ron and Bean

Seeing Stars

I'm back from my short trip to Hollywood, but I've done and seen more than could possibly imagine in such a short time. My birthday was on Wednesday and Rich and Mianna got me new coach bag, that I just love. I know I'm such a coach bag lady. We celebrated my birthday by shopping by day with Mianna at the outlet malls and then we all ate dinner at my favorite stop, Outback Crab Shack. When we had got home from dinner, Erin called to tell me she was going to get my butt butt on plane pronto and fly me out to LA., So she had a private Jet by the name of Southwest. ehhehe. I love you Erin. She is the bessssteesss buddy ever. I flew to LA in a mater of 12 hours of talking to her and was on my way to LAX. From the time I stepped off the plane, I was trying to keep my eyes peeled for stars, but then as I sat on a bench to wait for Erin, guess who walked in front of me and stood for a second. That dark curly haired, dark skinned guy from Lost. It gets Better and I have more stories, but I'm too sleepy to type it all so this will be continued ..................

LA bound

Thanks to my buddy in LA, I'm now at the airport in Nashville and on my way to LA for the weekend. I took 5 days off from work to just relax and have fun. I didn't plan this trip to LA till the very last minute and Erin was a big help in getting me the flight to LA with her flight points she has earned from being a frequent flyer. Thank you Erin! and I love you. I'm in TN for about 50 more minutes and got an itch to get on the net and blogg a little bit. I can now picture all the things that Mianna went through just a few weeks ago, when she was in this same airport. I see a your traveler just like her and she is sitting on the floor by the boarding letter so that she gets a good seat and that is exactly what Mianna told me she did. I'm not sure what Miss Erin had in store for us this weekend,but I do know it will include lot of FUN!!!! I always mange to have too much fun with her and I plan to take plenty of picture to post of Flikr. Well fellow blogger, I'm off to surf the web and get settled in before we boart the flight. Peace! Ill update you all on my Bday in the next blogg. I did have a good day!

Fractured pinky toe

It had been such a long time since my last confession, HAHA, that's how I like to look at my blog, a short confession of my everyday happenings. Sorry to all my dedicated fans that loves to read this crap. ehehhe. I have been so buy out of my mind that it's really hard to keep up with my blogg. I work so hard at 2 jobs and hardly find time to sit at my favorite spot in the house. I'm happy to report that my baby girl is finally home. I picked her up from the airport yesterday and the story is quite funny. I went into work at CRC to do some overtime as if I don't work enough already, and I got off at 1. I knew that her flight would land around 3 and so I figured I'd go hang with Rich at the company picnic, but Mianna called and said, mom I'm here. I was like "what? Your here already" I told her I was on my to the airport. I called Rich to cancel meeting up with him and began my trip to the airport. I was thinking, boy that plane must have caught some major tail wind and hauled ass to jaxs with 2 hours to spare. DAM. As I was driving along the 295 north I got a call from Mianna again, this time sure she was already at the baggage claim, but what happen, was the plane stopped in TN and she got off, O LORD, her flight was scheduled to come straight to Jax and it said 1 stop only and it didn't mention anything about TN. Mianna called to say she was at the wrong airport, but with some help from the flight crew and an old lady that also got off on accident, they ran to get back on the flight. ehhehe. I was 1/2 way to the air by this time and was not going to waist gas and time to drive back down to the picnic so I just hung out at the airport and played bejeweled on my cell phone. So you’re wondering about the title of this blogg????? Well the day before all of this drama, I was on my way to work, wearing my cute open toe, really small, almost non existent heal shoes, that I just bought for 9 bucks at Ross. Well anyways, as I was driving I came to a stop and my left foot was resting on the rubber rest plate at the left side of the car, and my foot slipped off and banged into the rest plate really hard. O my god, the light was green and I could hardly press on the gas pedal to take off because the pain to so great. I did manage to make it to work, but I was in so much pain. I worked for 5 hours with a throbbing toe and then my boss let me go home early. I decided to go to the ER and have it checked out. They were really quick with the x-rays and sure enough my little pinky toe on my left foot is broke. It’s not bad broke, but just fractured. I left the ER with my toe wrapped up since there is nothing they can do about it and went to my second job. I worked at BEBE for about 2 hours with the funny looking toe and then they let me go home.
Mianna is still asleep since she is on west coast time and so I suspect she will be having jet lag for about a week. Just in time to get back on schedule before school starts back. I'm going to clean house a little and then maybe take Mianna to Kohl's to look at some stuff and then go to Dads friends house for this retirement party. It's to nuts with everyone around us retiring and we are almost there with 2 1/2 years left. Man time sure is flying by. We still don't know what we want to do or where we want to settle down. I love FL and do not want to sale my home. But by Sep, we should start looking for orders.

It's Friday!!!

O the joy of being off. I got up early this morning and the first thing on my mind, was to call work and see if they needed my help, but then I came to my senses and said. HELLO take a break. I'm actually off from BOTH jobs today and here I am trying make my self go to work!!!!! Silly girl, so here I am, enjoying the day and being lazy and, also catching up on some house work and getting things in order around here. I cleaned off the nook table because it became and catch all mail pile instead of a table and I shredded old mail. I vacuumed the entire kitchen and living area and now my feet are happy! The birds always have a mess around their cage and table so I cleaned that up and here we are only 4 hours later and its a mess again. They are so playfull today that they are just making feather fly in the air, you would think they had some type of bird nip thats making them act all crazy. I should put on my paint clothes and go to town in the spare bedroom, but I'm just not in a painting mood. I want the house to be spotless for when Richie gets home and that will make him smile. He always cleans up for me so I come home to a nice home, but it's rare for me to do it, since I'm usually working 50 to 60 hours a week with the full and part time job. The money is not even close to what I thought it would be but it helps out with the extras. The discount from shopping at my favorite store is nice as well. I try not to shop as much and so I buys stuff on sale. I only bough a hat this past week and it was like 20 bucks. It's like so Jlo about 4 years ago, but I love it. I have to make sure I keep the sun off my face so I can age with grace. eheheh. I feel Mianna will be dropping some major $$$ for school supplies when she gets back from SD and so I'm saving up for that. I think I might send her to AZ in a few weeks and let her spend some time there. She wants to come home early and spend some time with us, but I have to put in for some days off from the jobs. Duke is the only one that is so alone without her, we miss her so much, but he is really hurting from her being gone. He actually mopes around with sad eyes looking like he wants him mommy. I let him listen to her on the cell phone today and he kept looking around in circles, trying to see her in the phone, it was so funny.

1999 Meridian

1999 Meridian
The other night ( 6-17-06) Rich opened up a bottle of 1999 Meridian Cab that we had on the wine rack, and O MY GOD it was the BEST I have had, since the 1999 Rutherford we had with Kim back in Lemoore. the wine was what 7 years OLD. o man it was so good. I did a little research and the wine got press in all these papers. 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon, California
Dallas Morning News GOLD
San Francisco Chronicle Silver
New World International Silver
Tasters Guild Silver
West Coast Wine Comp Bronze
Pacific Rim International Bronze
L.A. County Fair Bronze


I have spent the past few days, off from the second job and with nothing to do on my day off on Friday and Saturday. Mianna is in SD and it feels like I've lost my purse and this emptiness that is so hard to fill. I was so so board out of my mind and depressed the day she left that all I did was sleep. I couldn't even get happy windows shopping on the Mac .LOL. I still feel the same today and it's Fathers Day. My hubby is out BBQing and then we will be going over to some friends house for a gathering. I've been so depressed the past few days, I thinks it's because Mianna is gone and I'm not finding things to fulfill the void. I have been on-call at BEBE so much more than I actually work and that kind of stinks. I think I'll charge my camera battery and take plenty of pictures today. The weather outside is overcast and gray so that is how I feel today. I think we need to take a vacation and go some place fun.

ER room this morning

I got up this morning and started to get ready for work as usual when I found Rich in pain. He said he came home from work late last night and just started to have chest pains and then they started to get worst. He stayed up all night with the pain and it took me all morning to convince him to go in to the ER. The Dr did and EKG and chest x-rays and blood work twice. They found nothing wrong except one enzyme that was slightly elevated. They gave him some pain killers and told him to follow up with his Dr tomorrow. I called in to both jobs and got off since I had to take him in and just wouldn't feel comfortable leaving him, incase he had the pain again. This is about the 3 or 4th time he has had this similar pain and no one can really tell us what is going on. The Dr said it was some type of fluid in his cavity wall, but not in his lungs and that it just happens. I have no idea what these Dr are talking about, because they don't take the time to explain the situation well, and the nurse was actually more informative and reminded us of the Black Dr on Grays Anatomy, Dr Bailey. Rich is in bed resting since he was up for 24 hours and tomorrow we have to get up and head to the airport by 6am since Mianna leave to SD at 7:15am. My poor Richie boy scares me some times and I just hope he gets better.

2006 names

Alberto (currently a tropical strom) 6/12/06

Mianna leaves to SD

I just can't believe how long it had been seen my last blogg. I usually have no time to do this, but it looks like I'll have plenty of off time this week and with my new work hours at CRC, I'll be home by 6 every day, But it I have to run to BEBE, then not home till say 10:40 or 11pm. I'm only scheduled to work 7 hours this week, so most of the time I'm off or on call. I was oncall today and they didn't need me. Mianna is leaving for SD this Friday and she will be gone for one month. I'm already starting to get sad, but I know that she will have a fun summer and love spending time with our family in SD. I'm not sure how it's going to work out with not having her here and Duke being all alone again, he is really going to miss her bad. I suppose I should use this time that I'm home to make dinner and clean the house a little and do some laundry. It's like my work is never done, we just work work work. UHHHH. I'm so ready to stop working. Today we are having bad weather and I just heard on the weather channel on my XM radio that there is a tropical storm called Alberto in the gulf and he can develop into a hurricane and this is the first storm of the season. Here is a clip I took from
Tropical Storm Alberto, which stengthened between Sunday and Monday, is holding shy of hurricane strength. As of 4 p.m. CDT, Alberto's maximum sustained winds remained at 70 mph, 4 mph short of Category 1 hurricane strength.
Hurricane warnings were issued today for a portion of the Florida Gulf Coast. A hurricane warning means hurricane conditions may occur in the next 24 hours. The warning area covers the Gulf Coast from Longboat Key to the Ochlockonee River. A tropical storm warning has been extended northward to the Savannah River on the Atlantic Coast.

There is a slight chance that Alberto could reach minimal hurricane strength before making landfall around Taylor County, Florida by early Tuesday, but the storm seemed to weaken a bit on Monday afternoon.

Locally heavy rains may induce some scattered flooding but the general area has been very dry lately. Many locales will pick up 4 to 8 inches of rain with isolated 10-inch amounts possible. A storm surge of 8 to 10 feet above normal tide levels can be expected in the warned area which extends from Longboat Key to the Ochlockonee River. Isolated tornadoes are always possible with landfalling tropical systems.

The Season Ahead

Experts say the 2006 season could be another very active one. The latest forecast from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) calls for 13-16 total storms, 8-10 hurricanes, and 4-6 major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher).

Seeing more clearly now

BCBG Maxazria glasses
I got my eyes checked a few weeks ago and it just so happened it was on the day I had my pampered chef party and Lugo's going away party. I remember I as blind for about 4 hours after I had my pupils dilated. YUCK that really sucked! Today I picked up my new eye glasses and everyone at work likes the way they look on me. Mianna said I look younger and look like a college student. Now all I need is my braces and I'll really look 20 some thing. ehehhe. I love my new BCBG Maxazria glasses. ehehhe, I had to go designer... I'm such a nut. I have contacts ass well, but only need correction in one eye with the contact. I had Mianna snap this shot of me in my new look.

Crazy Busy

I have been so busy I haven't had time to sit at the computer to update my blogg. I worked at my full time job today but I'm off from BeBe for today and tomorrow. Then on Wednesday and Thursday I'll be working both jobs. I'm off from CRC on Friday and Sat, but work at BEBE both days and that makes a total of 57 hours this week. I'm finally getting the hang of the register at work and started helping clients with purchases and fashion decisions. So far I really like working at Bebe and the girls I work with are the coolest. Friday I had my pampered Chef party and for anyone that wants to order let me know by Wed, since I'll be closing the party then. We also had a farewell party for Lugo since he will be leaving this week to Puerto Rico for good. Rich finally painted the remainder of the living room and made me sad by painting over the kitchen. I was so sad I cried. He painted it without even asking me first. I was so hurt and now I have to paint it back, it's so ugly and blah! I have to get off this thing and take Mianna to the store to get a Bday gift for her best friend. I'm out!

Hippo poop

While we watched the Hippo's play it was so funny when one of them started pooping while wagging it's tail and the other one was drinking from the water. The entire crowd broke out in a loud EWWWWWW!!!!! it was the funniest thing ever!

Girls Night Out

My night out with girls was a success. We ended up going to a club in South Side called the Globe. We did shots of patrone all night. Well I had 2 1/2 and called it quits and only drank water and XL energy drinks..mmmmmmm, But S and C had so much fun and we danced our booties off. The atmosphere was great, but the kids looked so young, man we are getting old and it's so strange to be around such a young group of kids. I was having flash backs of when I was in my 20's and that was not too long ago. Our partying days of about 10 years ago, was filled with so many memories and good times. I wish I had some old pictures, but my friend M has all the pictures. I like to look back at them and see how skinny I was use to be with my short ass skirts and belly baring tops. This celebration was for S's Bday and lets just say she had way tooooo much fun!

Friday, May 05, 2006


I start my indoc for BeBe on Monday and Tuesday night will be my first day at work. whooo whooo. I'm so nervouse but excited at the same time. I keep telling everyone that I'm Jamaican with 2 jobs man!

Hooked on Sugar

While we were in Tampa shopping at Sephora I decided to buy this bar of soap by Sugar and I'm hooked after my 7 day test. This soap smell so good and makes me feel so soft I don't need lotion after my shower. I still put lotion on, but O man O man, this stuff is the best. I went to Sephora on Friday and they only had 3 bars left. I was told they would stop caring them, but I could still buy it online. I forgot to buy the last 3 bars, but hope they still have it when I go up next time. Rich even likes the soap.

Their back

Two Racoons
The racoon is back and this time it's not just one but two racoons. I watched them from the window as they tore into our trash yet once again. I guess they are really hungry and might have young ones to feed.

Rich took the test... HE loves this car the 07

I'm a Chevrolet Corvette!

You're a classic - powerful, athletic, and competitive. You're all about winning the race and getting the job done. While you have a practical everyday side, you get wild when anyone pushes your pedal. You hate to lose, but you hardly ever do.

Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

I'm a Lamborghini Murcielago!

You're not subtle, but you don't want to be. Fast, loud, and dramatic, you want people to notice you, and then get out of the way. In a world full of sheep, you're a raging bull.

Lost and Dead

Black Bear Hamster
We lost one of our bear hamsters when she got out of her cage about a month ago and never found her. We did find her sister and she just passed about 2 days ago. Mianna was not real sad, but we might get a new baby one day.


I got up this morning to call my job and tell them I'm sick!!!!! I am sick! I'm drained to the bone, my body is so week and my head feels as heavy as a bowling ball. I took some Day time medicine and it did clear up my nose so I can breath now, but I just feel week and limp. I spoke with my neighbor about doing our gutters and so it looks like we will probably get our gutters up in the next few weeks. I have plans with a few girls from work tomorrow to just hang out and do some shopping but if I don't feel so hot tomorrow we might have to cancel. My job asked me to work from 10-2 tomorrow and it's suppose to be my day off. I'm probably have to go in sick and all. O well. Looks like the cold that Mianna and Rich have had for 2 weeks now is finally catching up to me and this is how it usually goes within our little circle of sickness. Moms always get sick last because they need all there energy to take car of the kids and husband. Then when we are sick , no one takes car of us. :0(

Home early

I woke up this morning and felt sick. =( Mianna and Rich had been sick for a bout a week now and yesterday I was thinking , my time will be coming soon since I usually get sick after they get sick. My throat felt sore this morning and my nose was clogged. I decided to just go into work and that was a big mistake. I felt a little dizzy at work and so I decided to call it a day after 4 hours and I'm home now. I just had to check my email and now I"m off to rest. I Hate having a cold in hot weather.

Friday, April 21, 2006


Uah... I guess my dizzyness was still precent after that taunting test at the Dr office today. I hope I return to normal soon. I just have a sence of unsteadiness, no spinning, but more like a sway from side to side or front to back. I took Miannas computer in to have it upgraded with memory and a new video card if needed. I would have done it my self but the shop I normally go to had moved and so I found a new shop and just decided to have them do it for me. I love taking computers apart and messing with the inner workings, ehhehe. I need to spend my off time catching up on house work and laundry. I need a maid. With two jobs I will be so spent and not able to keep up on my house work. My daughter will have to step up and really start cleaning. We are thinking about sending her to Hawaii for the summer, but not sure if she wants to go yet. My friends mom lives in Hawaii and had asked if Mianna wanted to come out with her grandaughter for the summer. If I was Mianna I would go! After the computer store I took Mianna to watch Scary Movie4 and then out for an ice cream treat.

Minature Horse

I was at my Dr appointment today and this lady had a minutre hores for a guide named Conffetti. She had such soft hair and nibbled on my leg a little. I really got a kick out of Conffetti and instantly took a picture with my cell phone along with video and I blogged it from the Dr's office. ehehhe. My testing went well, but they did find that I am missing about 75% of my balance and it stems from a vistibular problem. I will have to do some physical therapy to retrain my brain to register my movement and balance and I should be a Okay again. I can't believe my brain had only been operation on 25% balance... that is a huge percentage. It's not only the barin, but my ear balance and the brain registering the balance.... WOW, anyways, I'm on my way to more recovery and I feel good about it. Todays tests made me so dizzy that it brought back memories of a few months ago when I was having bad vertigo.

New Job

I got the job.. LOL, not even sure if I told you all but I went for an interview a few weeks ago and I ended up landing the Job. I turned in my resignation from CRC on monday but today decided that I want to take it back, I know I'm crazy...... My Big boss said that he would love to see me stay and wanted to know the reason for me leaving in the first place. I told him it's not that I'm not happy, because I am happy from time to time at my current job, it's just strickly the money. I want to give this new job a try and see if I'm any good at it and if I excell I could make way more than my current position and have more freedom to save, invest, pay down my cars!!! and SAVE!!! I want to buy a second home as well. I'm trying to be super woman and work two jobs. My big boss said it was all okay with him but he was leaving the final say up to his right hand lady and she will make the final say as to if they will take back my resignation. If she says yes I'll be happy, but if she says no then I'll have to work part time at the new job and KICK some retail sales butt butt for that commission. I'm hustler at heart and definatly know how to get the $$$ bill ya'll. I'm not afraid to go for this new possition full force, but I'm trying to test the waters and see if it's the right position for me. I love the store and the clothing plus the discount is awesome since I have been a shopper there for over 10 years now. The area where I work is the ritzzy part of town and so the shoppers are plentiful. My new manager is a lady name Jennifer and she has been in retail for over 13 years and she is Tai. The mix of associates are from all over and so many I havn't met them all. I'm ready for my new venture.

Back from Tampa

Hard Rock Hotel Tampa
We got up early Friday and drove 3 1/2 hours to Tampa and got there a little too early to check in, but we Decided to go ahead and book the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. This was a really nice and I mean nice hotel. It's a lot nicer than the Hard Rock in Vegas. We were able to check in an hour early, but before we did that we went to the historic downtown and ate some sushi at a really nice place. I had my Hard Rock Special massage booked for 2pm and while I checked in to have my swedish massage with hot rocks, Rich and Mianna checked into the room and decided to hang out by the pool and play a game of pool. The Spa was really small but soooooooooo serene and beautifully decorated. I was in heaven with this massage and hooked for life. I will have to strive to get one at least once a month or every other month. I wish I could aford it every 2 weeks, like I use to get at the old apartments. After the massage I hung out in the spa and layed down in the steam room for about 10 minutes and that was really peaceful and relaxing as well. I was going to get into the indoor jacuzzi but decided to join my family outside and just in the jacuzzi out there. But before I left the spa I took a nice shower and fell in love with the huge shower head that come down on me like rain. I want a shower head like that in my bathroom... ehhehe. The pool at the Hard Rock played music under water and Mianna was amazed by that. I never got to hear it because they had a live band playing when I got out there and had turned off the music. We had to stop swimming after the life guard had found some thing that wasn't quite right in the pool. I suspect it was poop from one of kids that were down that end of the pool. We were at the deep end and so we never saw it, but they shut down the pool and we all retreated to the jacuzzi that was right next to a huge waterfall wall. After swimming we decided to go back to the room and get dressed and head to the mall. Rich got his watched sized and Mianna and I just tooka look around the mall and had fun playing in Sephora and bought some dirt; no not real dirt, but the hair product by Johnathan product. I love it and it really works. After the mall closed we decided to eat at California Pizza Kitchen and then headed back to the hotel. Rich and I went out at a little after midnight when the club Floyds opened up and we almost cosed it when we left at 5:30. I danced my boody off and had such a good time. The drinks were so over priced but we still had fun. I was too pooped to go gambling and not really into gambling so Rich went back down to play a little poker. No luck for him, but he had fun. The next morning we got up and requested a late check out and got ready to go the Bush Gardens. The park was fun but we didn't really have enough time to ride too many rides. Rich got on the huge coaster called SheiKra. I better get my butt butt to bed now, it's almost 1am.

Tampa for the weekend

We are going to Tampa for the weeked and having a fun time at Bush Gardens on Sat. We will head home Saterday night since I work on Sunday. Friday we will hang out by the pool and then check into our hotel and just have a relaxing day and evening and then spend the next day at Bush Gardens. I'm not sure if we will stay at the Sheraton or The Westin. Rich would like to stay at the Hard Rock Hotel I would love to go to the spa at the Hard Rock and also the pool is so NICE... o man I have to make a choice. Rich will be stuck to the machines and poker tables. ehhehe

MY MRI and Tshirt

Today I had what I hope is my last MRI and it went well. This MRI was to concentrate on the stem of the brain and it was louder then the previous areas I had done and so I couldn't hear the salsa music at all. I had on my Red T shirt that Rich got for me and got nothing but compliment and smiles from men. This one guy said to me in the parking lot that he likes my shirt and that it's TRUE. ehehhe. Okay so I love this shirt and the shoes I had on with it were just the cutes ever with polk a dots. It's a cute sandal by Nine West. ehehhe. Here is a little snap shot of my shirt.

Camera Phone Blogg

Toilet paper Roll on a roll

Today I had the funniest thing happen to me in the bathroom at work. I had to go so bad that I picked the first stall to go into and went rather quickly, as I reached over to get the toilet paper, It proceeded to fall off on to the floor and then took a long roll all the way across 5 stalls and into the handicap stall at the very end. I started to bust up at my self and I was the only one in the bathroom at the time. ehhehe. I had a second roll in there and so I just used that and then got up to fetch the one that fell on the floor and it was so funny to see it strung across all 5 stalls and under the chair in the handicap stall. I wish I had my camera because the sight of it was just to funny and priceless.

Jaguar XK

I have always had a thing for Jaguar cars and this new XK model is O my god out of this world with features like a V8 engine delivering 300hp. O MY god the speed is like somthing out of NASCAR. My TL is fast but not even close to the speed of the XK. I'm not in love with the exterior design at all, but the interior is very sleek in design. Price is OUT of this world.

Rich bugs me to buy him the new 06 Corvette and that thing is faster than teh XK with 505hp. Talk about fast as #$@&. Like I could really buy it for him, he knows I can't buy it if he can't buy it, but it's nice to have a dream car.

2006 Corvette Z06 2LZ
Inside every Z06 is an LS7 aluminum–block V8. It puts out a SAE-certified (Society of Automotive Engineers) 505 hp and 470 lb.–ft. of torque. Hand–built by the GM Performance Build Center in Wixom, Mich., the LS7 engine contains a litany of racing–derived components, such as an eight–quart dry–sump lubrication system, titanium valves and connecting rods, forged–steel crankshaft with six–bolt main bearings, high–profile cam, and Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machined heads for better air/fuel flow. Even with its performance, the engine does not incur a federal government gas–guzzler penalty.

Tell me when to go. LOVE this song

Pink's new CD is deep

Remember when Pink first came out back in the 2001 I think it was and it was an awesome CD that was really different from what was out at the time and her style is all her own. This new CD is very different from her first one, but it gives me a sense of her maturity and her voice is still PINK as every. I love the new CD, it's a must get. I'm feeling her deep vocals of intelligence and soulfulness. Dear Mr President is so touching and deals with today's issues that need to be heard loud and clear on the radio airwaves

Friday, April 07, 2006


Okay so I got up early this morning and had a little bit of nervousness since my interview was to take place at 11am. This was the first time I had an interview with 2 other girls in the room. I think it went well and I should know by middle of next week if I got the job or not. I could make lots of MULA and even up to 20 bucks an hour. I'm excited about working there and I havn't even got hte job yet. Okay so I know your all wondering how my body wrap went, I LOST LOST LOST. o my god I lost 19 inches all over and 3in just at my waist. I can fit into some of my size 0 capri and shorts that I couldn't put on yesterday. I will try to keep up with a good diet and maybe have a few massages and do lots of walking. I must say the experience was rather strange and made me feel like a mummy, but it was relaxing and the results are instant. I will do it again one day. I also lost 1 inch at my tummy area. The black slack I had on when I left it was so loose in the waist I really couldn't believe it and kept tuggy at the slack like you see in the adds for weight lost, I lost this much ! hehehe. I should have took a before and after picture. I can't shower for 4 hours and I will take a bath with some new soap I got from sephora today.

Take the day off cleansing balm

I just bought this the othere day and I LOVE IT TO DEATH. O man it makes your face feel so nice and soft. I use it everyday now. LUV IT, you have got to try it.

Body Wrap and Interview

Tomorrow I have an appointment to get my body wrap done. This will be my first time and I hope it helps me to loose some inches in all areas of my body. My friend at work did it and she lost a total of 12 inches overall her entire body. They will measure my body from head to toe and then wrap me and leave me for one hour and then take it all off and measure again to see what I have lost. I also have a job interview with the BEBE store in St. Johns town center and I'm so nervous but excited at the same time. I wish my wrap was first and then the interview, but my interview is at 11am and the wrap is at 4:30. Wish me luck on both. Last Friday I got my hair cut and had a facial and eybrow wax.... I know I love to be pampered. Tomorrow I'll get a pedicure and mani as well.

Walt Disney

We had a fun trip to WD this past weekend and got to ride the new ride at Animal Kingdom called Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain. I did have vertigo after the ride but it went away shortly after we got off. We also went to MGM to ride our favorite ride, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster. We watched Voyage of The Little Mermaid and that was really cute. Then we took a journey Into Narnia: Creating The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. We watched the DVD today, I can just watch it over and over again, I love that movie. We also went on the Great Movie Ride and that was okay. We will be back down to WD in about 4 weeks to meet up with our friends Myke and Mary coming from Cali. I should book our room now. We stayed at the Sheraton and for the next stay I'll pick another hotel.

200 causes for vertigo

Today was my appointment with the National Hearing and Balance Institute of Jacksonville. I learned so much at my appointment and I'm so excited to go to the next step for testing. I never did see Dr. Green today, but the PA was so in formative and very in depth. She made me feel confident that we would get to the bottom of my problem and diagnosis and help to treat what ever it is that is the underlining cause of my vertigo. I have been vertigo free for a month now, but still experience off balance from time to time. The civilian side of the medical world is so different from that of the Navy. I took another hearing test today and have some high tone loss in both ears and more in my right than my left. That test along with a few others is enough for them to want to figure out what the underlining cause is and there is a strong possibility that there are 6 different things that I could have and for now we are sure that it's not life threatening and THAT is such a relief. My vertigo could have been going on for the past 6 years and only now took a turn for the worst and we need to find out what triggered it. I was so bug eyed when the PA told me there are 200 causes for vertigo. WOW. I'm happy to be on the way to recovery and I'll be sure to update my blogg and keep you all posted step by step.

Duke is Home

Mianna called me at work to give me the good news. Our neighbor about 4 houses down found Duke and had him in their backyard. I will try and talk to the neighbor tomorrow and return the green leash she let us use. I'm not sure where or when they found him, but I'm so happy to have our BOOBOO back. I missed him. Mianna said he was all dirty and stinky, so she gave him a bath and he had a little owee on his elbow.

Quick update

It's really late and I have no time for a long blogg, but I have some sad news. We lost Duke the day we were heading to Orlando. Rich left the garage door open and Duke just ran off without us knowing. We looked for 2 hours and had no luck. Our neighbors said they would keep a lookout for us, but no luck so far. We still left for Orlando with much heartache, but we had no way of canceling our hotel reservation, since it was such short notice and so we decided to just go. Duke has gotten out many times before, but each time we found him quickly and this time it was different. Duke usually gets away at night and it's so hard to find him but we always manage. I just couldn't believe this time he got out in the middle of the morning and in full sun light and we couldn't find him. Mianna walk behind every house in the neighborhood with out a fence and even looked behind the ones with fences, while I looked in front. We looked for exactly 2 hours and even drove to other neighborhoods in the area. We only have 99 homes in this small neighborhood that consist of 2 col de sac and one main street. It was hard to have fun in Orlando while thinking about bobo. We had our dog for almost 14 years. I ran out of ink for my printer on the same day, so I was not able to print out flyers to post around town. I will get some printed this week and check with the pound and animal shelters. Duke has a chip in his shoulder blade area and so maybe they will be able to contact us if he is turned into a pound. I think the home number on the chip is my old home number but the cell number should be on there as well. I did get call before when he use to get out in Lemoore. I will call Lemoore tomorrow and see if I can get a hold of the # to the company that put the chip in him so I can update the information on the computer. I"M SO SAD it HURTS. I miss my dog. Surprisingly enough Mianna is taking it well and I haven't seen her cry yet or talk about it much. I think she is just trying to be a big girl about it. I think someone has him and is keeping him, but who knows. He had no color on but I hope someone turns him into the pound and they will know he has a chip in him. On a positive note, people in our area love there pets and pets in genaral. We have a pet shelter close by and a boarding facility and also a vet close by. I know people love there pets in our area, because we have more vets then nail shops and I kid you not we have more vets then any place I have ever seen. I can count 10 in a ten miles radius. I will visit all and post flyer as well.

Happy Birthday Ingrid

Thanks for always being a true friend and for being there for the birth of our baby girl almost 14 years ago. Even though we are so far apart, just remember that my thoughts and prayer are always with you and your family. I know you'll have a good day and I can see the SMILE you will be wearing all day long. LuV you like a sista.

Going to Disney World again

I'm so excited to leave Jaxs and go down to Orlando. We will have some fun at all the parks. I'm not sure if I'll ride many rides, but I will have fun. I haven't had any episodes of vertigo in almost 3 weeks and everyone has been so concerned with how I'm doing. I'm happy to report that I've been doing good for 3 weeks and next week I will go to the national hearing and balance institute downtown to have more test run and also I have all my MRI's and CT to take with me for them to read. I feel good and have been wearing all my new shoes that I couldn't wear when I was dizzy. ehehe. I had on my pink Charles David heels today and it's was so nice to have my feet free and I'm feeling the spring/summer time is going to be a fun filled time for us. Those of you who know me real well know that I'm a tuff cooking and I only make friends with real people and it's hard for me to get close to others. But I have been sad with no real friends to hang out with and have fun with. I'm so sick of people being fake and judjing me for what I look like on the outside. I just wish people would give me a chance and get to know me before they start to judge me. I always get the same shit when it comes to woman friends. It's suck to be a woman who is so insecure with her own inner being that she can't stand on her own thoughts and need other to validate her or a man to controle her. Sucks. I'm just so happy to be who I am and not a fake person. I some times think I have no friends because I am a bit hard core and I tell it like it is. Life is just to short to sweat the little things. I off to shop for a bathing suite online and maybe I'll find the one piece I seen in my in style magazine by Juicy Couture.

Gucci glasses

I have a pair of glasses that I just bough at Target by Mossimo and they look exactly like the Gucci glasses I just found on Bluefly. I only payed 15 bucks where as the Gucci glasses are 168.00 wow. I always buy cheap glasses because I end up scratching them or dropping them and they get all messed up. I'll stick to Target glasses. I do have one pair of real Gucci glasses and I've had them for years, but they are a little messed up. Mianna is home, we are off to the stores.

Happy Happy Happy

Guess what guys? I found my makeup. YUP, I'm so silly, I must have came home from work so sleepy and I put it under my side of the sink and it was filled with a little bit of water. We might have a little leak from when Rich took the sink apart because I had dropped my pearl earring down the drain. Rich gave me the cutest dangle pearl earrings for valentines day and I just love them. I was rushing to work one morning and dropped one down the drain. Thank goodness he rescued the earring for me. So now I guess I have no reason to go shopping for makeup today. LOL I'll just do some regular shopping, that always makes me happy. Mianna will be home from school in a alittle bit and I'm sure she wants to go shopping. I need a haircut and we will try to go do that when she gets home.

Lost Makeup

I'm so sad today and have been all day. I lost my makeup bag with all my favorite makeup and even my new stuff that I just got last week. I know it's all replaceable, but it's just that it's expensive stuff and I had just got it and now I've lost it all. I had my new favorite mascara by Fresh. I had some pretty expensive brushes too and I think it all comes to a lost of about 300 bucks. I know, it's only makeup but I had My new blush by Bare Escentuals along with a new eye shadow called naked beach and the mineral Vail that stuff is awesome. I had my Estee Lauder polish in purple and a few lipstick by Lancome and Estee. I had some good Mac brushes that were about 30 buck a piece and a few cheap sponges and some lip liners. I'm mostly sad about the new stuff I had just spent 80 bucks on. The price we pay for beauty and it's not cheap. I will just try and have some fun shopping for my replacements and maybe even take my butt to Mac and get a fun make over and buy some new stuff. I remember the days when Rich use to take me to the department stores to get made up and buy makeup. The last time we did it was way back in Vegas and he fell in love with the look and got me started on wearing false eyelashes. I want to get a facial done tomorrow and maybe after that I'll go buy my makeup.

Rich and I will take Mianna to Savannah with us on our next trip up and we plan to do more sight seeing and take a few of the ghost tours. There are so many old building in Savannah and even a haunted cemetery and countless numbers of old buildings filled with so much old energy and history. I really fell in love with what little I was able to see on our quick trip to the city. Rich has also read this book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and the statue on the cover of the book is on display in a museum in Savannah because people were so attracted to it after the book that they started to chip away at her for a piece of a memento and they had to remove it to keep it preserved. We didn't get to visit the statue but we plan to on the next trip and I will strive to read the book before we return.

the apartment was to send him out on the balcony with a Popsicle and tell him to
report on all the neighborhood activities.

He began his commentary as his parents put their plan into operation:

"There's a car being towed from the parking lot! ", he shouted.

A few moments passed .. "An ambulance just drove by"

A few moments later, "Looks like the Anderson's have company", he called out.

"Matt's riding a new bike....."

A few moments later, 'Looks like the Sanders are moving"

"Jason is on his skate board...."

A few more moments, "The Coopers are having sex!!"

Startled, Mother and Dad shot up in bed!!!

Dad cautiously asked, "How do you know they are having sex?"

"Jimmy Cooper is standing on his balcony with a Popsicle."

My new toy

I'm so excited like a little kid on Xmas day, ehhehe. I got a new phone today. I was so out of the loop with my old school cell phone that had no camera, no video, no TV , all that good stuff on the new phones now a days are so awesome. I love Samsung phones and so I got this one.. I sat in the car for all of 2 minutes to program my blue tooth and so I'm hands free baby. It's so coooooool. I'm love it. Now I'm going to add some music to my phone and I can jam out when ever I like. LOL. Check out my new phone on the link above

My surprise trip

Me sitting on the Heavenly Bed
Rich had been telling me all week that he had a surprise for me on Friday and to make no plans. I was like okay and really though nothing of it but then Friday came and he says, pack some outfits, we will be gone for one day and we are spending the night and not coming back until Sat. I was starting to get so excited and he helped me to pack a few cute things and some good walking shoes since he said we would do lots of walking. When we got in the car I had a feeling we were going to go north and I was right. As we left the FL border and headed into Georgia I stated to guess that maybe we were heading to Savannah. I was right. Rich surprised me and took me to Savannah Georgia to enjoy the festive celebration of St. Patricks day. It was a fun day with lots of walking along the River walk and we drank some beer and I also had the famous Wet Willie frozen drink. mmmm it was soooooo good. We stayed at the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf resort. And spa Our room was so BEAUTIFUL with all the luxury you would want in a hotel room. We had a double message shower head in our bathroom and feather down pillows and comforter on our queen size heavenly bed. We had 2 beds in the room with a little sitting area by the window with the view of the river. O , I was in heaven with the few and took a few shots. It was nice to watch the sunset from up in our bedroom window. We were on the 12th floor and so it was really nice being so high up. We took a ferry to the other side of the river where the celebration was going on with about 500,000 people walking up and down the river just having fun and drinking and laughing and eating.When we first arrived we watched some of the St. Patricks Day perade. We stood in line and got a giant turkey leg to eat for dinner and drank lots of beer. I wanted to go out clubbing but got so sleepy after about 5 beers and one Wet Willie. Rich was also sleepy and so we just called it a night and took the ferry back to our hotel room. I wanted to get a message in the hotel spa, but we didn't really plan on doing it and so we will have to do it next time. Rich just called me from work and said that he has booked out hotel stay for NEXT year already. ehhehe. He wants to go back to bad that he called to book the room. I will have to make sure I surprise him and book the most luxurious message for one entire day and surprise him. HEY don't read this blogg RICH, eheh, no he will probably read this, but for realz I'll book us a romantic message. I love my hubby, when he surprises me with such a fun trip. Thank Richie boy. I love YOU. You really feel right at home in a Westin Hotel.

Frog and Hamsters on the loose plus lost pearl

Duke eating peanut butter
I'm glad to report that the family is doing much better now. I'm on my way to getting better everyday and have the week off from physical therapy and still have my test coming up in a few days. My mom is home from the hospital and on her way to recovery. I haven't spoke to her yet, but she is a little out of it and just stays in her room at the house. My grandma and aunt are taking good care of her and so she will be just fine. Richie's dad had a little bit of a scare and had to go to the ER and spend one night in the hospital. They told him he needs to relax and have less stress. He was worrying about me and probably some other things and that was causing stress on him. I told him not to worry about me and that I'm getting much better. I had a fun weekend with Richie and Mianna. We hung out the mall and the St. Johns town center and I took Mianna shopping at her favorite store Limited Too. I also got a new shirt at BEBE, it's just to die for. I have it in white, but they only show it in two colors online. Rich was saying that I should work at the store so I could get the awesome employee discount and they were actually taking application and so he got me one.... hehehehe. I have so much to do around the house and have been feeling a little stress myself. I came home today, to find a frog in my bathroom. I was going into the toilet area of our bathroom and its an inclosed room with a door and all of a sudden I seen a frog jump from behind the door. I wanted to take a picture of it but Mianna caugh it for me in the empty trash pail and put him back outside, before I could take a pictures. Too funny. I love it when the frogs come out in FL. So besides loose frogs we have Loose hamsters too. YUP our bear hamsters have escaped from there cage and are some place lost in the house. We have no idea where to look for them. I will put some peanut butter out on a couple of spoons and maybe that will bring them out. I'm too sleepy to try and look for the hamsters now, and Mianna is off to bed, so maybe Rich can find them when he gets home. Oya, I forgot I dropped my Valentines gift (pearl earing) down the drain this morning and Rich had to rescue it for me. ehhee Thing need rescuing in this house. Mianna just found one hamster in her bathroom, phew! One down and one to go. I'm about to go now.ehhehe. I will have to take a picture of my new pearl earing to show them off, Rich had such good taste when it comes to pearls or just to jewelry in general, and he picked such an awsome pair of earing for me.

O no, Duke is eating the peanut butter and he looks so funny!!! I need to geet this on video

Therapy today

I went to physical therapy today and learned some new things to help get me back to normal. I'm so fustrated lately and my job seems to not be as understanding as I thought.
Anyways, I might have to look for a new job. I just can't deal with the fustration of my call center, but I think it's because I'm so worked up with the vertigo, that my patient with ANYONE at all is very little on non existent. I doubt people I work with truly understand what I'm going through. I just wish I could go back to normal. I had an episode today that was stonger than the normal, but still not as bad as the first few weeks I started to have my vertigo. I can walk now and do all normal things, but it just takes me more time to do some things. I'm driving on my own and that makes me happy. I hate feeling this way and I'm just getting so fed up. UGH. Yeah, this is a blogg to vent. It doesn't help that I'm having PMS too, but I just need a bath and some chocolate. Calgone take me away!

LA Rok

LA Rok
I love this top.
YA YA is making a fan out of me
This one too.
My pants but I have it in green

$18.99 a lb

Mianna spotted some crab claws and wanted it for dinner. I got her 1/2 lb for a little appetizer and she is in heaven. This girl loves almost all seafood know to man. She also loves raw oysters and just informed me that she need to practice shucking oysters for the shucking contest in her science class. We just ate oysters over the weekend and Rich is getting good at shucking. I have my favorite pinwheel salmon in the oven now with this stuffed talapia that I'm trying for the first time. Rich is at work now, but I will save him some for a late night snack. I love eating seafood since it's so light and almost no fat at all. I can see why Japanese people stay so healthy and skinny.

Our old man


My teenager


2nd day at work

I made it through the day with my vertigo kicking in at the 3rd hour. It was not too bad and so I was able to stick around for the last hour. I'm not sure if I'll be going in tomorrow since I might have my septoplasty done tomorrow morning. I also have physical therapy after my ENT appointment, but that might fall through if I do have the septoplasty and depending on how bad I might feel or if I can operate with all this gauze and junk on my nose, but I might have some anesthesia and I'm not sure what type. They say the surgery only last 20 minutes, so maybe it's not so bad. Hell I have no idea. I just hate the idea of the DR ticking tools up my nose. My nose is a sacred body part, LOL. O man, I'll be sure and update you all on the process. Right now I'm having some seriouse pain in my right cheek and right eye, I know it's due to sinus pressure and causing my sinus headache. HELP, I'm getting old and falling abart.LOL

Talk to my mom

I was just relaxing on the couch when the phone rang and it was my aunty Max calling from my moms room at the hospital. I talk to her but only for a second. She is just now getting a little better and has both arms wrapped up. Her back is okay and only bruized and I'm so happy about that. I'm sure my mom will recover well and have complete confidence in my aunt taking good care of her. I will not travel to SD, but hope that my mom has a speedy recovery and maybe she will travel to FL soon. I was hoping to get her out here this month of March and maybe that might not happen as but maybe this summer. O well, just happy she is okay and glad I was able to talk to her even if it was for a short period.

1/2 day

I finally went back to work today and stayed 1/2 day. I was fine for the first 2 hours and then my vertigo set in and I realized how this might be a long process for me and so I'm having to fill out FLMA so that I have the option for more time off here and there as I need it. I'm stuggling to be normal again and I just need to take it slow and not push my self to much. I have and ENT appointment this Thursday and also physical therapy and I hope it all goes well and maybe the PT will help me get better.

I'm working on painting our spare bedroom and have one wall done already. Mianna has been a big help with the painting and it's fun to see the room transform. I'll post pictures as soon as we get it all done. It will be a very serene guest bedroom in shades of lilac and deep purples.

Neurology and Physical therapy

Towel for a neck brace
I went to my neurology appointment and it all went well. I also had a physical therapy appointment and will continue that for about a month. I learned a lot of exercises to do at home and at work. I have a note saying I can go back to work for 1/2 day for the next two days and that will give me time to feel out how my vertigo treats me at work, if that makes any sence. I feel good about going back and trying to take is slow. I do feel better, but still need time to heal. My physical therapist made a make ship towel brace for my neck and it really helps to get me use to the positions that make my vertigo apear the most and help with keeping my head steady, yet I have to take it off from time to time so that I don't get a stiff neck. I'm ready to return to work and at least try. I'm still have to have another MRI and MRA.

Tuna with honey mustard sauce and Mango salsa

Friday night dinner is one of our classic dishes that I discovered while watching Bobby Flay on FoodTV one year. I also discovered Mango salsa and it's a tasty and easy recipe.

Carne Asada nachos

Saturday night dinner was MMM good.

Unique furniture

Rich wanted to go look at furniture today, and there was only I piece I sat in with Mianna and it looks like the link above. Very unique and stylish furniture. I thought I could walk around good today, but after the 3 store I was so out of it and walking so slow with almost no energy at all. I feel off balance without the vertigo feeling, but no feeling in my legs and my arms actually feel week also. I'm so ready to give up on this mess and just be me again. It's like one moment I'm find and the next, I can't function.

Balloon stye back in.

Okay so I've noticed that balloon style shirt, short and skirts are back in style. I remember wearing this style back in high school. I had a black balloon skirt that was my favorite, how funny. You have to be really skinny to wear the style otherwise you look fat. I couldn't war it now, but its funny to see it back in style. I wonde if Mianna will want a balloon skirt this sping/summer. They call it bubble skirt on her site, but I've always called it a balloon skirt. The BCBGirl line has some really cute and affordable pieces.

My favortie line

Yes I'm such a BCBG nut and I just love this dress for spring 2006. The link will take your to the entire line, but I love the white dress with beading around the neck. I have to blogg this so I remember to go back and look at the line. I also love the Dusty Surf Silk Habotai dress... Ugh it's so pretty. Look at the sirf printed crinkled silk habotai dress with lace detail. mmmmm sexy. I can only buy stuff when its on sale at the outlets in St. Augustine. I need to win the Lotto.ehehhee , I say that but I never play, so Rich needs to win the Lotto for US.hehehe.

Okay I have to metion the toffee combo printed silk shiffon dress is to die for!
the Avocado/smokey brown combo ombre silk chiffon gown with beaded detail, reminds me of he dress the whats his name (Santino) made on Project Runway. I love that show!

Okay I had to add one last thing to my list, hehehe. the chocolate satin strapless gown with beaded detail (NWS63509) I'm a sucker for fancy dresses. just looking at them makes me smile. I have a closet full of fancy dresses and I do have my one and only BCBG that I wore last year to the Xmas party. It's a rare piece.

High Hills

The worst part about having vertigo, is not being able to wear most of my shoes. I am such a high hill nut, that most of my shoes are just sitting there, screaming wear me! Wear me! I feel so much better today...Ugh finally there is some hope. I will walk to the mail box now. I just wish I could get out the house and go to the movies or just drive or just do anything. Go shopping, yeah, that's it. I miss shopping. I'm having shopping withdraw real bad! LOL see, I'm still me.

My mom in the hospital

My mommy
My mom took a good fall a few days ago when her knees gave out on her and she broke and fractured both arms and hurt her back. She is still in ICU. I have yet to talk to her, but my family is keeping me informed and here are a few pictures that my aunt sent in email this morning.

Suicide and Fall

I woke up to a phone call from San Diego. My aunt had called to inform me that my mother had a bad fall when her knees gave out. She should be walking with a cane and for what ever reason she was not walking with her cane and fell. She is in ICU at some big hospital in Hillcrest and I'm worried about her. She fractured her elbow and messed up her back and they are trying to run test and have her on morphine for the pain. I just want to go back to sleep and wake up from this hell of a dream right now. I had to go to the DR this morning for my physical therapy and got more info and help. My youngest aunt, my moms sister is also having problems of her own, and I had to call her and yell at her to wake up and take care of herself, she attempted to commit suicide by overdose of pills. O lord help my family right now. I did go to work to talk to my boss and they all miss me and are waiting till I return. I heard this saying today, When it rains it pours and right now it is literally raining outside, but I just feel like it's pouring on my family and the health we are all in now. I hope my mom gets better and wish I can talk to her soon. My aunt will have to shake her self silly and get some major help. Pray for us all please. I'm still here with the vertigo an all. The last thing I need is stress. I wish I could be on the west coast to help my mom and aunt.

Pretty Girls

Our birdsWe have been baby sitting these birds for our friend but I think they have struck a core in my heart and no they are ours to keep Our friend will be moving soon and can't take them. We call them pretty girls, skinny tail and Fat tail. I just love watching them play in the cage and listen to them make chirps with the music I play on my computer.

Test I will have soon

My next few weeks or months will concist of test like this...

Electronystagmography, which attaches small wires to your face that measure eye movements. It looks for the special eye movements that happen when the inner ear is stimulated. The pattern of eye movements can point to the location of the cause of the vertigo, such as the inner ear or the central nervous system.

I will have more of these done on my brain stem area, already had the brain done and it was good

Imaging tests, such as magnetic resonance image of the head (MRI) or computed tomography of the head (CT scan). These tests may be done if symptoms could be caused by a brain problem.

I had a hearing test today and just had problems with high pitch, but noting too bad

Hearing testing to detect hearing loss. A special hearing test can determine whether the nerve from the inner ear to the brain is working correctly. Hearing loss with vertigo usually indicates a problem other than BPPV, such as Ménière's disease or labyrinthitis.

Summary of my BPPV

I thought I would try with all my might to do one thing that makes me happy... Sit at my Mac and type a little summary on my blogg. I must say I run a fine line between keeping an online summary for myself and wanting to keep my readers updated on my everyday LIFE!

O, my goodness, just to get all off subject I have to tell you that my birds are whistling to Ludacris song,'s too funny, she was bumping to the beat real good. O my goodness she is really doing this, now she is doing it to this Pharell song and I'm just busting up at them as they play in the cage and make little noises with the beats, too funny. This is I; I just speak my mind and have to get all off the subject at the drop of a hat. I think it would be much better for me to update my blogg by voice, since I'm trying to type with vertigo, LOL.

I have to try and keep things as normal as I can and this is one thing that makes me so happy. I love to type and sit at my computer, hell I work with a computer all day, and it might not be in the way I would prefer to and on a system that most people don’t even use anymore. Yeah, my job is so behind the times as far as technology is concern but O well. I miss my coworkers. I have not made it through an entire workweek in over a month now and it doesn’t look like I’ll be going back anytime soon. I am trying my hardest to get well and it looks like it’s going to be a long and slow process.

Rich woke me up this morning and had all kinds of news for me. He is the BEST and I will tell y’all with all my heart, that he Listens to me and is such a take charge and caring person. I truly have my soul mate. Anyways, he woke me up this morning and said, babe I have an ENT appointment set up for you and it’s at 10:30 today. Big smile from me but a little wine in my voice, because I was up until 1:30 this morning and I’m just not a morning person and probably would have slept the day away. Ehhehe. My baby knows me to well and I’m so happy he got me in to ENT today. You all know I was hospitalized for 2 days and had a CT and MRI test done and that all came back good, but with the hearing test I had today at ENT, they found that I had high tone hearing lost in both ears and my DR had suggested more MRI and MRA test for my neck area. When I was in the hospital they were only focused on my brain and that was all good. We have to rule out nerve diseases and then we can move on from there. I’m a little excited about gong to the specialist in town, because they will run some really fun and in depth test on my motion. I’m only looking at this entire process as fun so I can make it past all of it with flying colors and FIX ME already. Dam it!!! No more drugs for me. I have been drug free for 4 days, but did take IB this morning for my cramps that are kicking my butt. I have to try and take Valium alone to see if it helps my vertigo and then let the DR know what it does for me. I have to try and go back to work, but Rich says he will take leave to be home with me and I'm not going back to work. =o( for now. sad face from me. I don't want to have to use saving to live, if we run out of money to pay bills. REAL LIFE. that is what I'm worried about.

Balance is determined by a complex combination
of inputs into the brain. These inputs are:

Proprioception (sensation of position of joints)
Inner ear

Too be continued.....

Cleaning house

I have been so fed up with this dirty house and so I have my family working like crazy to clean house. From the day I came home from the hospital with my cane in hand and all, I was cleaning house. I feel much better, but I'm still rocking my boat and having tension headaches on a constant basis with my eyes jumping like crazy from having to try and focus so hard. I have an ENT appointment on the 2nd of March and if I can hold out I will wait until then to have my hearing test and just try to schedule a sight test for the same day. I have no need or want to go to physical therapy since I have been walking better without the meds and I'm typing better too. I have pain and fullness in my right ear, but not so much that I need meds for it. I have taken my self off of all meds the DR gave me and I feel much better just dealing with the vertigo on my own without the meds. I have to take a break and just relax once in awhile and if it gets real bad and my stomach hurts, I sit down or lay down. Rich just power washed the outside of the house and now he is going to wash my car. I was thinking about test drving the H3 and trade my car in for it if I like it that much. ehhehe. I keep giving Rich a hard time about trading in his truck to get the H3, but he hates Hummers. We do love the TL too much but I'll still check out the H3. LOL. let me get off this computer and try to clean up my bedroom. I just feel much better when my house is clean and can't stand the clutter for one second.

Move over law

This is new news to me and a good law, now I know.

Jimmy J won

Feeling good at the moment

At the moment I'm feeling good. I just got a sudden urge to update my blogg,since I have more hand and eye coordination at the moment. I'm typing a little slow on my laptop that is sitting on my vanity stool up against the tub while I sit in luke warm water watching Gray's anatomy. I must admit that this feeling of being my self is sooooooooooooooo good. I had one spell of vertigo today, but I fought it like a champ and took no meds. I'm sick of meds and will not take it unless I absolutely need it. I did come home from the hospital and wanted to clean my house like a mad woman.

I'm out the tub now and had to stop typing from the tub for many reasons. First, I'm using some expensive laptop around water, ($1700.00) reason #2 Could damage Gray's Anatomy DVD $(19 bucks) reason #3 Virgi getting electrocuted, (priceless). Most of you who know me, can relate to my accident prone ass! I'm feeling much better just sitting her on the love seat in our formal living room just taking in the scent from a mango, papaya candle that Stacy from work, just brought by a few minutes ago. My friends at work have showed much concern for me and Stacy is one of my good coworkers that I get along with well. I'm almost completely off of the pills they gave me but I have been taking Ambien to help me sleep. I only take 1/2 a pill and so far, have only had it twice at home. Meclazine doesn't make me drowsy anymore and only makes me sick,so I have been fighting the vertigo and not taking a DAM thing. I'm stronger than this and I'm going to get past it. If there is one thing I know, it's that I'm a stronger little Guamanian lady with a temper and stamina of a Tiger! ehhehe. I miss the stability in my legs and feel it's gone from walking around like a darn old lady with no balance because of the vertigo. I have 8 days off from work and I will take as long as I need to get better. I will do as I please and remain strong. I miss being on the Net so bad, I was having withdrawals at the hospital.
Rich has been taking care of me like a queen like he always does and he is watching the las 8 laps of Daytona 500 and I wish we could be there in person. Next year we will be there. It's a very gloomy day with a bit of a chill. I'm off of here to watch the last 3 laps.

Home from Hospital

walking problems

Last night I got off work at 6pm and couldn't walk at all. I was not dizzy, not sleepy, just had no feeling in both legs. I used my work chair to get around, since it has wheels and just stayed to chat with the 2nd shift gals, until Rich came to pick me up. I'm heading back to the hospital today at 2pm and check out what's going on or what they can do. I think it's a side effect from the pills I'm on. I'm walking today, but very unsteady. I look so funy walking around like Rock woman thrying with all my might to take each step. I have to get ready now, since it might take me longer to get myself together for the appointment.

Just read Ingrid blogg and we are so opposite with the weather here on east being COLD as hell. It's 31 out but it feels like 24 with the wind chill factor and will get down to 28 as time goes on. I'm up really late or should I say early. I can't sleep, think it's my meds. :o( sucks, I'll be so sleepy tomorrow. I plan to wear my fir coat, hat, gloves, and scarf. Click the title above to see our crazy weather.





I want that

Too many cool things on this page that I would love to get.
