She Loves Me This Much!

The wonderful, boobalicious Sue from Beggar's Shotglass gave me this sweet, sweet award! I am so touched, and among great company in receiving it. So now I'm going to pass it on!
I have a new bloggy friend, Chel, from Chasing Contentment. If you haven't already checked her out....do it!
Krissy gave me the sweetest shout-out on her blog, Firecracker Mom! She is one of my longest bloggy friends and I just love her.
And honestly, I can't settle on just a few more people to give it to. I can't! So many of you have been so supportive of me in my weight loss journey and in my life in general. You all mean so much to me! So if you're on my blogroll or even if you read my blog and wish me well, this is for you. Seriously! Take it! And spread the love.
We're off to tube down the Ichetucknee and MAYBE camp for the night if these children don't drive me out of my mind. Have a great weekend!


Thankful Thursday

(From My Sassy Pants)

Where to begin? I have so much to be thankful for. I recently saw a familiar saying.
"We may not have it all together, but together, we have it all."
And it really applies to us right now.
We have a bunch of messy kids and animals. Our house is not going to be featured in a magazine any time soon. The yard needs more grass. The cars need to be traded in. I am rarely organized. I'm usually late for everything; field trip permission slips, appointments, paying bills...you name it. There's not a whole lot in the bank account. There are usually dishes in the sink. There's always laundry that needs to be done. There's pretty much always something that I need to do, but I'm procrastinating. We definitely don't have it all together!
But we have IT ALL.
We have four wonderful kids. They drive us crazy much of the time. They are opinionated, loud, funny, mischievious, curious, and very entertaining.
We have our dogs. The experience of rescuing and fostering is incredibly rewarding. I love the lesson we are teaching our children.
We have our beautiful cat, who the girls decided to take responsibility for. We did not ask, they begged to do it! They clean her litter box, and feed her twice a day. All of her supplies are in the girls' room.
We have a roof over our heads, and we love fixing up our little house, bit by bit. We have a big yard, which our kids and dogs love to play in. We love beautifying it, bit by bit. I'm working on my little garden....it's my relaxation place. Soon I'll have a pond there, and a fountain. It will be my little haven.
We have our families. My in-laws may drive me crazy sometimes, but they are incredibly loving, kind, and generous. They spoil us. They are good to my kids, for which I am incredibly thankful. We have my niece who is one of my best friends, and I am so thankful for that, and her very entertaining boyfriend. My sister, my brother, his family, my aunts and uncles and cousins (one of whom was recently featured in the paper - for a good thing! He's a sheriff). Such an amazing amount of people who love us.
We have our friends. The love and support we have from them is beyond measure.
We have everything we need, and many things we want.
We have a lot of fun and laughter.
We live in a beautiful place, with many fun things to do, and many beautiful places to visit.
We visit those places as often as we can.
We have our health, and so much happiness.
Without a doubt, we don't have it all together.
And without a doubt, together, we have it all.


Wordless Wednesday ~ I love this one...

My niece took this pic on Mother's Day....I think it's my favorite pic ever.


You May Notice....

...that there's a March for Babies widget on my sidebar. The walk that we do every year takes place in November, which is obviously a long time away. But I made a Virtual Memorial Page for Dysfunctional Dad's first son, who passed away from complications of prematurity, so I decided to go ahead and activate the link for this year so that I could post it on that site. I won't start begging asking for donations until closer to the actual walk date, but I figured why not put it up now? It can't hurt. I will NEVER solicit money on this blog for anything other than causes I am extremely passionate about, and never for myself. EVER.
But if I can raise money for animals or babies? I.Will.Do.Whateverittakes!
This Virtual Memorial thing is really cool, but I can only keep the pretty pictures and music up for 2 weeks unless I pay a one-time $50 fee. Not exactly in the budget right now, so it looks like it'll be plain after 2 weeks. So go check it out now while it's purty, and sign the guestbook!
Oh...and I realized today that the date of the Gator Walk this year, is the anniversary of that date of Baby JW's death. That makes it even MORE special!


You Asked For It....

...you got it! A few of my bloggy friends have asked for before & after shots of me. I've been putting it off until I lost a decent amount of weight, lol! But at ~64.5 lbs, I guess I'm ready.

This was actually taken right after my surgery. I had only lost a few pounds at this point.


And these were taken this weekend.


Me and Dysfunctional Dad in St Augustine, at Fiesta Falls Mini-Golf.


My niece and I, also at the mini-golf place.


Dysfunctional Dad and I at a Blue Crab Festival earlier today.
This would be a great picture, except DD decided to CLOSE HIS EYES!!
So there you have it. Me, after losing 64.5 lbs, and over halfway to my tentative goal weight. WOOT!


Thursday Thirteen


Just 13 random things.

1. This week I learned that bribery will get me results! My Princess has been having Moments lately, but a reward chart with promises of prizes has brought about some very pleasant changes.

2. I also learned that my son is officially one inch taller than me. Granted, I'm short, but still. It's scary!

3. A Thankful Thursday moment: I am so glad I was a SAHM for much of my children's pre-school life. I loved it and wouldn't trade that for the world.

4. Another TT moment: Work is going MUCH better now.

5. One more: I have the most amazing husband. He loves me for who I am, no matter what. He is so good to me.

6. We went to the Horse Sanctuary again this weekend. This is the Princess & Spiderman.

7. This is where they bury the horses who have passed on.

8. I can't even imagine what happened to this horse. =(

9. "Whew, Shrek, did you do that?! Man, you gotta warn somebody before you crack one like that. My mouth was open and everything!"

10. While at the Horse Sanctuary, Spiderman out of nowhere puts his hands on the back of his head, shakes his hips, and says "Bow Chicka BOW WOW!"
He never fails to entertain.
He LOVED our newest foster dog, Suzi.

11. My family had a cake made for my birthday, even though they knew I wouldn't eat any. It was pretty freaking cute, if I do say so myself!
Yep, that's me. What a cute baby! hee hee

12. It's harder to think of 13 things to blog about than I thought it would be.

13. My sister's cat is very, very sick. He has diabetes and nobody knew. Now he's in bad shape. We're praying he makes it through the night.

Hope you all have a good Friday!


Wordless Wednesday: Confession Coming Back to Haunt Me

My confession is haunting me, everywhere I go:


And I must share these with you, as they make me laugh, and take me to my happy place.






I barely know which end is up these days! Things have been so busy, at home and at work. I haven't had time to post or read many blogs, and I'm so behind. I miss reading your blogs and hope to catch up very soon.
I forgot to mention this in my last post, but at the same festival I mentioned in that post, I found out that a former boss of mine had died. (it was a really emotional festival! geez)
When my ex and I first seperated, I got a job cleaning houses. It's not easy to rejoin the workforce after being a SAHM for years. But my friend worked for this guy cleaning houses, and got me a job there. I expected to hate it, but I loved it, and the boss was part of the reason for that. He was hilarious, and I worked directly with him and another girl much of the time. We had way too much fun. He was an awesome boss. He finally sold the business and fully retired, and died 2 months later from complications post-heart surgery. I still can't quite believe it.
But otherwise, life is good. As of yesterday I have lost 62½ lbs. 62½ POUNDS, peeps! Gone forever. I am still amazed. I have met goals and I weigh less than I have in a very long time. I'm incredibly happy and proud of myself! I am working very hard and it's paying off. I eat very healthy foods and I feel good about treating my body better than I ever have. I drink water and skim milk only. I've never eaten this healthy in my life! I watch others eating desserts and crap food and am so thankful I made this change in my life.
NONE of my clothes fit, I'm going to do a little shopping this weekend. I hate to buy much, since it'll be too big in a couple of weeks, but it's getting ridiculous...I look like a clown! I'm not bragging......oh hell, maybe I am!
I've also inspired two co-worker/friends to get help with their weight loss efforts. Yay!
This weekend, we're planning on going camping in St Augustine. But, it's Memorial Day weekend and I'm not having much luck finding a campsite. So if you're in the area and you see a tent on the side of the road, honk & wave!
We had planned on going for Mother's Day weekend, but the van needed a tire and the kid needed glasses. So, that took priority, because of this whole "we're grown-ups now" thing. WhatEVER!
But this weekend should be a go. And that's good; I'm very much in need of a get-away.
And I am SO going shopping!
That's the recap; hopefully I'll get back in the swing of blog life very soon.


Emotional Sucker Punch

Have you ever had something happen that totally caught you off guard? Left you almost unable to breathe, not sure how to react, whether to laugh or cry........
That happened to me this past weekend.
In 1994, my cousin died. He was older than me by about 8 or 9 years, and although we hadn't grown up close, we grew closer before his death. He moved closer to us, married, and had a son. I attended his wedding, and visited the hospital after his baby was born. He attended my first wedding.
In 1994, his sister got married. He traveled to South Florida to be a groomsman. They had a great time at the wedding, and the reception, and then, still in their tuxes, some of the guys walked down A1A to a nearby bar. They partied for a little longer, then my cousin decided to walk back down A1A, to his hotel room.
Nobody knows exactly what happened. Maybe my cousin had a little too much to drink and stumbled onto the highway. Maybe the car swerved a little off the highway.
Either way, my cousin was struck by a car and killed.
I took it hard. I cried for him, and for his mother who had lost her only son. I had just became a mother myself, to my son. I couldn't imagine losing him, at any age.
He was buried with a picture of the three year old son he left behind.
That little boy will soon be seventeen. All these years he's grown up without a dad, and my family wasn't sure how much his mother had kept his memory alive. At the time of my cousin's death, he and his wife were seperated and talking divorce.
But this past weekend, I coincidentally ran into my cousin's son. I was at a festival with my husband, aunt, & mom. We were all chatting with him while he was at a stand, buying a soda. When he pulled out his wallet to pay for the soda.......that's when it happened.
In the front and center position, where people would normally have their driver's license, I saw a picture that I instantly recognized.
It was a picture of my cousin when he first joined the army. That typical military picture with the short haircut and the flag in the background.
I almost couldn't breathe when I saw it. I was so caught off guard to see that picture there. I've seen it a million times before, looking through family albums. But there, in his teenage son's wallet.......it just floored me.
First I showed my husband........then I had to walk away. All of those emotions from twelve years ago came rushing back. Then I walked back, and pointed out the picture to my aunt and mother. Then I told my cousin's son how wonderful I thought it was that he carries that picture.
And I keep reliving that moment over and over in my head.

For Mother's Day...............

Making the decision to have a child - it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. ~Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty

Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible. ~Marion C. Garretty

Where we love is home - home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

Couldn't resist throwing this one in......

Setting a good example for your children takes all the fun out of middle age. ~William Feather

Oh, not THAT kind of prayer?

What was that?
That's not exactly what you meant?


Wordless Wednesday: These Are My Confessions

It's almost Wordless Wednesday.
And I must confess.
I wear Crocs.


In my defense, I work in a hospital! It's practically the law.

I'm a sucker for an adorable face.
This is my Princess & a kitten named Harley.


My niece and I found this kitten wandering around next to a major highway this weekend. Harley is now safe and sound, with my niece, being spoiled and very well taken care of.

Happy Wednesday!


Cinco De Mayo!

cinco de mayo red

Did anyone celebrate Cinco De Mayo yesterday?
We did.......I made authentic mexican food for dinner. Tacos, taco bake, mexican rice, and corn.
Thank you, Old El Paso!


I also played mexican music on the computer while we ate.
Yep, I am that goofy! But it was fun.


Get Moving Monday!

Get Moving Monday is courtesy of The Mombabe.

It moved!
The scale, that is.
It was STUCK for the longest time. Around 10 days, I think. And I know I shouldn't weigh every day. But, I do.
And it finally moved! First one pound, then another. YAY!!!
I am now at ~52.5 lbs, GONE FOREVER!!!

*Don't forget to check out Weighting 4 Change!


Fresh Ink

Tattooed Mama
I got a new tattoo today.
Guess where it is?
Yeah, just on my upper back. Nothing scandalous.
This one HURT. It's my third tattoo, and hurt far more than my other two, which are on my legs.
But I'm so glad I got it! It means so much to me at this time in my life.
Because the lotus emerges from the mud to bloom, it is a symbol of how wisdom can surface even from the ignorance encountered (both inner and outer) in our world.
Along with this, the lotus symbolizes awakened consciousness, enlightenment, and also spiritual realization. Other meanings for the lotus can also include spiritual freedom, sacred grace, and liberation.
Now I'm taking my sore self to bed.


When I Grow Up

Huckdoll did this way cool meme, and I'm playing along.
Jobs I've Had vs. Jobs I've Wanted
The first 'job' I ever had was babysitting. I guess most teenage girls do this for extra cash. But it seemed to be a theme that followed me around for a while.......
Next I got my first real job, as a cashier at Publix (a supermarket based in the South). I really liked that job, lots of cute guys!
Then I got an office job. Ugh, it sucked. I worked at the DMV! It was as awful as it sounds. People hated us, and we got death threats. It was very stressful. I got laid off because when my kid was sick, I stayed home with him instead of pawning him off on someone else, as my boss actually had the nerve to suggest to me. Losing that job ranks right up there as one of the best things that ever happened to me!
Because then I became a SAHM. The best job ever! And that's when the babysitting thing started following me around.....I did home child care to make extra money. And T-bone had kids to play with. Win/win!
When I finally decided to go back to work, Child Care was the most logical choice for me. That way, I could still be close to my kids, get cheap/free child care for them, and I certainly had plenty of experience. Other than a brief stint working for an evil Florist, I did that for years.
After my third child was born, I became a SAHM again. Until my divorce (another one of those negative things that ends up being one of the best things to ever happen!). Then, I had to get a job quick. And I knew that I was not emotionally up for working in child care. I happened to see a good friend of mine and she was cleaning houses for a small company. She hooked me up with a job, and I cleaned houses for about three years. I loved it, much to my surprise.
Then I moved on to doing child care again, for about 2 years. But that's when those jobs I always wanted came in to play.
I had always wanted to work in the medical field, especially once I had kids and they were constantly going to the pediatrician. It really seemed like the field for me. I had applied at our large local hospital off and on for years, but never heard back. But when I was cleaning houses, I also went to school at night. I didn't finish, but it wasn't a total waste........those classes finally got me a job at the hospital! I started out as a Unit Clerk and now I'm a Clerk Monitor Tech. I love this job, although I'm hoping to transfer to a different unit.
And the ultimate job I always wanted is one that I'm hoping to take steps towards doing in the fall....a nurse in a neonatal ICU.
The first job I remember wanting, though, is a Kindergarten teacher.
Was I insane? I'd have never made it past a week.
I also wanted to be a photographer. Now, I'm a pathetic wanna-be with my point & shoot camera.
And for many years, I wanted to be an artist. But the only thing I lacked....was talent.
I also went through the veterinarian stage. I used to buy that 'slime' stuff and play with it, thinking it would help me get used to seeing icky things as a vet. (I was a weird kid.)
And one dream job that I still dream about is being a writer. I really love true crime books and I'd love to go watch the really good court trials and write about them.
Maybe I'll be a NICU Nurse/True Crime Writer when I grow up.

Book Titles You Won't Find in Your Local Library:









These are supposedly actual signs that have appeared at various locations across the United States and rest of the world.

In a New York drugstore: "We dispense with accuracy."

In the offices of a loan company: "Ask about our plans for owning your home."

In a New York medical building: "Mental Health Prevention Center"

On a New York convalescent home: "For the sick and tired of the Episcopal Church."

On a Maine shop: "Our motto is to give our customers the lowest possible prices and workmanship."

Random Twisted Jokes:

A leper walked into a bar and sat down. The bartender glanced over and promptly threw up all over himself and the floor.
The leper looked hurt and said, "Hey, I know I'm not exactly handsome, but I do have feelings and you could be a little sensitive about them."
The bartender, wiping his mouth on his sleeve, looked up and proclaimed, "I'm sorry as hell man, but it wasn't you. That guy sitting next to you keeps dipping his crackers in your neck."
Bob goes into the public restroom and sees this guy standing next to the urinal. The guy has no arms. As Bob's standing there, taking care of business, he wonders to himself how the poor wretch is going to take a leak.
Bob finishes and starts to leave when the man asks Bob to help him out. Being a kind soul, Bob says, "Ah, OK, sure, I'll help you."
The man asks, "Can you unzip my zipper?"
Bob says, "OK."
Then the man says, "Can you pull it out for me?"
Bob replies, "Uh, yeah, OK."
Bob pulls it out and it has all kinds of mold and red bumps, with hair clumps, rashes, moles, scabs, scars, and reeks something awful. Then the guy asks Bob to point it for him, and Bob points for him. Bob then shakes it, puts it back in and zips it up.
The guy tells Bob, "Thanks, man, I really appreciate it."
Bob says, "No problem, but what the hell's wrong with your penis?"
The guy pulls his arms out of his shirt and says, "I don't know, but I ain't touching it."
And finally, Mistakes on Resumes:

These are from actual resumes:

"Personal: I'm married with 9 children. I don't require prescription drugs."

"I am extremely loyal to my present firm, so please don't let them know of my immediate availability."

"I intentionally omitted my salary history. I've made money and lost money. I've been rich and I've been poor. I prefer being rich."

"Note: Please don't misconstrue my 14 jobs as 'job-hopping'. I have never quit a job."

"Number of dependents: 40."

"Here are my qualifications for you to overlook."

"Please call me after 5:30 because I am self-employed and my employer does not know I am looking for another job."

"I procrastinate - especially when the task is unpleasant."

"I was proud to win the Gregg Typting Award."


"Responsibility makes me nervous."

"They insisted that all employees get to work by 8:45 every morning. Couldn't work under those conditions."

"Was met with a string of broken promises and lies, as well as cockroaches."

"I was working for my mom until she decided to move."

"The company made me a scapegoat - just like my three previous employers."

THE END! Hope you enjoyed my 100th Post.
