One day a woman's husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't "anymore". No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more "just one minute." Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say good-bye, say "I love you." So while we have it, it's best we love it, care for it, fix it when it's broken and heal it when it's sick. This is true for marriage ..... And old cars .. And children with bad report cards, and dogs with bad hips, and aging parents and grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it. Some things we keep -- like a best friend who moved away or a sister-in-law after divorce. There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what. Life is important, like people we know who are special.. And so, we keep them close! I received this from someone who thought I was a 'keeper'! Then I sent it to the people I think of in the same way.... Now it's your turn to send this to all those people who are "keepers" in your life, including the person who sent it, if you feel that way. Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know you love them? I was thinking...I could die today, tomorrow or next week, and I wondered if I had any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that needed rekindling or three words needing to be said. Let every one of your friends know you love them. Even if you think they don't love you back, you would be amazed at what those three little words and a smile can do. And just in case I'm gone tomorrow.
I LOVE YA!!!
Live today to the fullest because tomorrow is not promised.
WOW, I can't believe how fast it got here. I just ordered it on Wednesday and it just got here. I can't wait to use it. Who else ordered one? I got the bundle deal. Came with the gun/adhesive and 3 extra adhesives. I paid $28 total. I think the shipping was free. ?? Great deal I think. I got it from stampingscrapping Awesome
Updates from Twilight Summit Entertainment responds to departure of Rachelle Lefevre. Yesterday at 11:15pmJuly 29th, 2009
We at Summit Entertainment are disappointed by Rachelle Lefevre’s recent comments which attempt to make her career choices the fault of the Studio. Her decision to discuss her version of the scheduling challenges publicly has forced the Studio to set the record straight and correct the facts. Ms. Lefevre's representatives were advised as early as April that THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE was expected to start shooting in early August.
If Ms. Lefevre was, as she describes “passionate,” about being part of THE TWILIGHT SAGA, we feel that she and her representatives would have included us in her decision to work on another film that would conflict with the shooting schedule of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE.
It was not until July 20th that Summit was first informed of Ms. Lefevre’s commitment to BARNEY’S VERSION, a commitment we have since been advised she accepted in early June. Summit had acted in good faith that she would be available to fulfill her obligations both in terms of rehearsals and shooting availability for THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE. We feel that her choice to withhold her scheduling conflict information from us can be viewed as a lack of cooperative spirit which affected the entire production.
Furthermore Ms. Lefevre took a role in the other film that places her in Europe during the required rehearsal time, and at least ten days of THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE’s principal photography. This period is essential for both rehearsal time with the cast, and for filming at key locations that are only available during the initial part of production. Contrary to Ms. Lefevre’s statement, it is simply untrue that the Studio dismissed her over a ten day overlap. It is not about a ten day overlap, but instead about the fact that THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE is an ensemble production that has to accommodate the schedules of numerous actors while respecting the established creative vision of the filmmaker and most importantly the story.
The fact remains that Ms. Lefevre’s commitment to the other project - which she chose to withhold from Summit until the last possible moment - makes her unfortunately unavailable to perform the role of Victoria in THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE.

I dont know what I did but yesterday I messed up something. I came to my blog today and the side bar on the right is not on the right at the top where it should be. It is way down below where it should not be. lol. I dont know how to fix it. I have tried and tried everything and nothing is working. Any ideas?
April 18th Donny came home from work (he really wasn't at work) and proceeds to tell me he cant stand being with me and I make him sick and he is leaving. April 19th he moves out and April 23rd he has an apartment in an upscale complex off of I-75 and Bruce B Downs. Well to later find out he does have a girlfriend (I accused him of it, but of course he denied it), and he had been seeing her for at least 6 months(that would make it around Nov. of 2008-I didn't find out until april 18 2009 that we were having problems). So our 11 years together (9 married on March 25th) was just one big misery for him. But all is good now. I no longer miss him, and I am glad he left. He always tried to tell me he did all he could to make me feel good about myself and not look down on myself, but he didn't. I NOW feel good about myself and have done everything I can to make myself healthy (and still am going on with that), I have had my leg vein surgerys, my hysterectomy, been to the heart doc/stress tests, mammogram, loosing weight, exercising. And starting to do things to have fun. I know there are things I "did wrong" in his eyes, but the problem with that is, he NEVER told me until the day he told me he was leaving. So there was no way to fix it. Anyhoo, I wasn't gonna get into all that, just wanted to let everyone know whats been going on with me (since I deleted the other posts). They were much more in detail. lol.I'm not saying all this for you to look down on him, he has issues he needs to work out and get his life together to try to be happy. I feel sorry for him and no longer hate him.
Hello to all bloggers out there. Lots gone on since I last blogged. I am newly single again (not by my choice-but good with it now), have lost around 30 pounds (still more to go, I am looking HOT- LOL), just had a hysterectomy (with a few repairs in there) and am now home trying to recoup from the surgery. By the time I am done recouping, it will be time to go back to work. WAHHHHHH. I don't wanna. lol, but I gotta. I can't wait till this 6 weeks of recovery are over. I want to get back to my weight loss/exercising, and to going out and having fun. Dancing, and doing things Iam scared to do (maybe some bungee jumping, rides riding, motorcycle riding, dirt bike riding, boating, etc. etc.). Anyhoo, not much scrapbooking going on lately, but hopefully will soon. I have not been able to go see the new Harry Potter movie (my surgery was day before it released) an can't wait for the New Moon (Twilight) movie to come out.
Ok this leg, this surgery, HURT. The veins in this leg are thicker and tougher than the other leg. No reason, just each leg can be different. When the doc tried putting the catheder in the vein, it wouldn't go in, but I guess it was so tough and it wouldn't go in correctly. Plus they were thinner. So the initial incision, where the catheder goes in, HURT LIKE THE DICKENS. Oh man. There were other times that there was pain, but it was tolerable. Then once the laser was all done, and it was time to pull out the veins, the doc got the top part, went all the way to my bikini area. The nurse got the bottom part of my leg. When she went to pull out a vein, she grabbed a nerve instead. HOLY COW, talk about pain. Man, I was so ready for that to end.

If you have any suggestions on the group please throw them my way. I am always open for any ideas. RIVERVIEW WALKERS
The 3 I have done today have all been at Universal Studios. We have annual passes so went for my bday. I think this was the day Haylee and Emily hung out together for their bday which is only 2 days after mine. So they did not want to go.
I had my second vein surgery today. Today was just the "flabectomy", I think is what they called it. The doc had already done the laser part the last time so did not have to do it again. Today was just removing some veins he did not get to last time (ran out of meds). So there is not as much pain this time. I am starting to hurt a little right now and need to get up and walk for a bit. I have to walk at least 10 minutes every hour but I do much more than that. My mom got off work early and took me (Wyatt was with us) and brought us home. Donny is at a Mason Lodge while one of his friends get "Raised" so he could not take me. Plus he had to work and could not get off in time. I remembered to take my camera this time so I have pics to share. If you have a sensitive stomach, you might not want to look at the pics. I think they are no big deal AT ALL, but I think this kind of stuff is neat at crap. Wish I could get pics when I go for my hysterectomy, but I know that is not possible. I will take my camera in case and see if someone will take some pics for me. I won't share those on here though, if you want to see, you will have to email me for the pics. LOL. Anyhoo, here are the pics. If you want to see a bigger pic, click on the pic and it will enlarge.
I still need to get some green tissue paper for the "grass" and one of those foam things you can put in pots to add fake flowers and such. I used my cricut Expression and my cuttlebug. I made the bunny from the George cartridge and the eggs from the Home Accents cart. The popcorn box is from Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More cart. Thanks for looking.
I started a while back, but always forget about it. I went on today and typed in Robert Pattinson.
I guess it's really him. My daughter tried to explain it to me, but who knows. Hopefully it's really him. Just the like the ROCK, Dwayne Johnson. I could live a very happy life with only seeing these two men (of course my hubby and son in there too). Rob and Dwayne. AHHHH. LOL
Anyhoo, while on Twitter I seen the message from Rob (is it really you?) and it said to check out this movie. It has Kristen Stuart (Bella) in it. Go check it out.
I am watching Harry Potter again (I LOVE Harry Potter (Rob is so hot) if you didn't know. lol)
but will turn on Twilight when it's over if I am still awake. It is 10:37 and it's 62 out and very windy and it sounded like rain but not sure. Took Wyatt to the pool today, it rained and he finally said it was too cold and we left. It is nice being on Spring Break, just wish it could last longer.
Have to add another pic or two of you know who.
enjoy, don't drool too much. :-) Don't wanna destroy the computer.
Oh and what is your favorite part of the movie (Twilight)? Mine, is
where they are in Bella's bedroom and he tells her he wants to try
something. Kissing of course. **SIGH**
And of course the end of the movie at the prom where he acts like
he will bite her *SIGH SIGH*, and where they are in the woods and
she tells him she is afraid and he says good and she says not of you, but
of you disappearing (I think that was the word), and how close they are
and you think they will kiss but don't. *SIGH SIGH SIGH*.Ok I know I
I just can't seem to get enough of Twilight. Am I crazy or what? I don't care. I just love it. I have
watched the 2 bonus video's and not sure how many times the movie. I am actually watching it now while laying in bed. I had planned on working on the skinny scarf I am making and reading some. But of course not. I am also addicted to Facebook. What would I do without my computer and tv, movies? I guess read more, scrapbook more (am I even scrapbooking?), card making more, knitting more. Exercising more??? I need to get in as much exercise as I can before Thursday. Another vein surgery and no exercising for over a week. I lost the 2 pounds I had lost and gained back again (lost 12.6-then gained 2 back, and now lost them back again. lol), hopefully I wont gain any more back. This really sucks. By the time I can do things again its time for another surgery. I can't wait till the 3rd one is done and over with. But then it will be time for my hysterectomy. FUN. 6 weeks or more of doing nothing. Wish me luck with my diet (Weight Watchers). I got off the subject of Twilight. How could I do that? I should be ashamed of myself. LOL. I cant wait for NEW MOON to come to theatres. So who has watched Twilight more than once since they bought their DVD?
Donny gave me $20 the other day to get my movie Twilight but no one had it (the 3 diff walmarts we went to), so I was NOT gonna settle for the plain ole 1 disc. LOL. A few lady's at work said that Super Target had them. So I called this eve and the lady said they had over 2 hundred of the 3 disc movies and they were still $17.99. So off we went (the kids and myself), while Donny went on a run. I am so happy to have it. And it has a digital copy on it also. I have never used the digital copies other movies came with, but I am sure I will download this one. I will watch it when I go to bed. Will probably fall asleep in the middle, but HEY it is mine and I can watch it whenever me wants. Who else has gotten their copies, or who has NOT gotten theirs? Hurry on over to super Target on Bloomingdale Ave. (that is if you live in this area) and get yours. Or call your Target and ask if they have it. Sweet Dreams of Edward.
Today is our 9th anniversary. We both FORGOT. I was rocking Michael to sleep at school today around 12:30 and I remembered. So I grabbed my phone from its location (hehe) and sent him a text. Sorry I forgot babe. Happy Anniversary. I love you. kissie kissie. lol. Anyhow, we actually celebrated it this past Saturday evening. He took me to a GREAT Japanese restuarant off Lumsden and Kings in that shopping center by the kids consignment shop. There is also a pub next to it. Across the street is O'briens I think. It was WONDERFUL. The only other time I had ever been to a J restaurant, I did NOT like it at all. But it was awesome. I had Tampa Roll, and California Roll, Shrimp Tempura, and some Beef something. Can't remember the name. Man O man O man it was soo good. The waitress came by and asked me what was wrong and did I not like the food cause I hardly ate. I told her I did and I am on weight watchers. I would eat it all if I could. Oh also had a salad with some kinda weird dressing, but it was good, and MeSo soup. YUM. So with the salad, soup, T and C rolls and the shrimp Tempura and then the beef stuff, I was SO stuffed after. We had lots of leftovers and had it for 2 days. LOL. YUM. We also went to the mall after so I could walk (supposed to walk after the vein surgery) off the food and get my walking in. We weren't there a long time, but did go to Sears and he got a couple things CHEAP (shirts) and me a jacket (CHEAP). They had some good sales going on. Oh and got a couple pillows that were buy one get one free. Our pillows were looking a bit YUK. No stuffing in them. LOL.
Anyhoo, here are my flowers he brought me home and the card is beautiful. Of course I didn't get him a card. But that's ok, our 11 year first date anniversary was Valentines day and I got him one but he forgot mine. We both are sooo forgetful.
Everything is looking really good. There is still a small dense area, but its not bad.
Wyatt had to tell the doc that he has NOT been wearing his braces at night (he doesn't
like them and the way they feel) and he cheats alot and uses his walker when he is home and
does a speedy gonzalez act with it. He always ends up walking or hopping really fast and just
not doing what he should be doing. It has been like 2 1/2 years being in the wheelchair and he
is just sick and tired, tired and sick of the thing. It is so hard for him, knowing he can walk with
no problem and NOT being able to. He is miserable. When he went to his appt. in December, the
doc told him if he continues to do what he should he might possibly be out of the wheelchair by Dec. of 2009. Well this last appt. she said the xrays looks so good and if he will PLEASE use his wheelchair more, and WEAR his braces (she even said dont wear them 12 hours, just say from 10pm-6am) and not walk, he will be out of his wheelchair come his next appt. in June. She also
said, from how good the Xrays look, if he had been wearing his braces and not walking/cheating,
he could have left the wheelchair and walker at the hospital and gone home and started walking again (no running though for a lot longer). That kind of upset him, but its his own fault for not doing what he should. He knows what he should do and chooses not to. Anyhoo, hopefully by
June, he just might be out of the wheelchair. So maybe next year in 3rd grade, he will no longer have to use the elevator at school (the new building should be done at school by then, so the portables will be GONE).
