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.

Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

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.

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

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.
