Weekend Time

I had a really good day today.  I woke up this morning and miraculously my headache was gone, or was it because I medicated myself very well before I hit the sack?  Either way, I was cheery and rosey this morning.
Work went pretty well also.  I don't know, I guess maybe I was in a great mood today because it was the last day before the long Labor Day weekend.  And to all you guys out there Labor day doesn't mean we are pregnant!  LMAO    We are going to go to the race in Fontana on Sunday!  I can't wait.  Even better news than just that is we are going to get to go into one of the skyboxes which just happen to be AIR Conditioned.  It is supposed to be around one hundred degrees and this girl will wilt under that type of heat.   Go Kasey Kahne!
Here it is Friday night and here I sit waiting for Rene.  He will be home later from work.  He does have to work tomorrow and Monday but he did swing it so he could be with us at the race.  Let me tell you, he has never had a great time at a race, and he better had this time or I swear he is going to get it.  One time when we went he got jealous because some guy was talking to me.  Someone has to tell Rene that I can't help it if I am beautiful, it's just a fact!!  I hope you all know that I am kidding on that one.  I'm not conceited in the slightest and I never rank my own looks, only in jest. 
Well, I think I have said enough and don't want to overstay my welcome in your computer screens in your homes, so I willbid you adieu.  Have a marvelous weekend everyone!  TTFN

Here But Not Here

I'm sitting here by the computer and Big Brother is just coming on.  I just love that show, wish I had someone here to watch it with me, oh well.
I had a busy day at work as well as a doctor's appointment today.  That is always lots of fun!  Not!  I know that John has tried to IM me tonight and I'm sure Lisa would if I were to take myself off of away message but I have this headache tonight and it is hard to think at the moment.  I think I'm just tired, so don't think I'm trying to avoid anyone, just don't feel like talking much tonight.
Everyone, have a good Friday tomorrow!  Luv ya!  TTFN

Rewarding Hump Day

This will be a short entry tonight.  Just wanted to say I had a pretty good day at work today.  It was pretty worth while and rewarding.  I think I made a great breakthrough with a patient and I hope that will continue into the future.  Of course I cannot give details but it has really uplifted me tonight.
I hope everyone out there has had a great Hump Day like I have.  Is anyone doing anything special for the Labor Day holiday?  Right now I'm not sure what is going on around here.  There is a chance that I will be going out to the Nascar race in Fontana on Sunday.  That would be cool, or rather hot the way I hear it, the weather is supposed to be near 100 degrees if not over.  I melt in that kind of hear  LOL.
Have a great day tomorrow everyone!  Luv ya!  TTFN

Hi Everyone.  I hope you are doing well this Sunday.  I had a somewhat eventful for night . . . some for the good and some for the not so good.
First I talked online until almost midnight with my friend Lisa.  She is a very sweet girl.
Then Rene finally came home after being out with the guys.  I was so in the mood last night and as it turned out so was he.  Hehe  So we had lots of fun.
About four o'clock this morning I awoke in a cold sweat and I was very disheveled to say the least.  I had some sort of dream last night that scared me.  I am having a hard time remembering it but all I know is that I was very frightened and I even had tears falling down my face.  That is so unlike me, but then again I can be emotional at times.  Rene cuddled with me and I was able to fall back asleep without any further nightmares.
I got up this morning and mad Rene a nice breakfast before he had to head off to work.  I wish he could get some time off so we could spend a little quality time together.  I love and need him so very much.
Well, anyway, I guess that is all for now.  Enjoy your days everyone!  TTFN

Happy Weekend

Hi everyone!  How is your weekend going so far.  Mine is relaxing.  Rene had to go to work but he will be home relatively early tonight.  I plan on making him a nice dinner.  He has been working so hard I figured I will make him his favorite meal, enchiladas, and then for dessert, well me. LMAO
We went out to eat last night at the Black Angus.  I had a nice Filet Mignon, it was yummy.  Then we took in a movie.  We saw "The Invasion" starring Nicole Kidman.  I thought it would be a better movie.  It had some moments but overall nothing too exciting. 
It is getting a bit warm out today.  I'm sitting in here with the AC on.  My dad is having his weekly Nascar party and we will be going over there for some nice BBQ and watching the race from Bristol, TN tonight.
Hope you guys have a fabulous weekend.  Luv ya!  TTFN

End of the Day

Hi Everyone!  Here it is Tuesday night and I just got done watching Big Brother.  I just love that show.  I really wished they would have kept Amber on the block and got rid of that cry baby.  Unfortunately I had to watch it alone because Rene's store's inventory is just about here and it is "crunch time" as he says.  He is pretty much going to work a gaggle of hours the next couple of days and then maybe, just maybe, I will get him back.  I need him here, especially at night, it gets kinda lonely.
Work was work today.  I really can't talk to much about it because I am bound by patient confidentiality.  But I can tell you it was a pretty trying day today.  Very much emotional and I really could have used my husband here to lean on.  I did call my mom and talked to her a while about it.
Well, I think that is about it for tonight.  Luv ya!  TTFN

What Color are You?

My color is yellow according to this thing I found at Katie's journal.  I love yellow but pink would have been nice as well.  So Katie, what do you say about us painting the town yellow?  LOL

You Are a Yellow Crayon
Your world is colored with happy, warm, fun colors.
You have a thoughtful and wise way about you. Some people might even consider you a genius.
Charming and eloquent, you are able to get people to do things your way.
While you seem spontaneous and free wheeling, you are calculating to the extreme.

Your color wheel opposite is purple. You both are charismatic leaders, but purple people act like you have no depth.


Happy Sunday to everyone!  We had plans to go out and see a movie and have lunch, but low and behold, Rene was summoned into work at the last minute.  We were just seconds away from leaving too.
So I have got to figure something out to do.  I am sure my dad's weekly Nascar party is still going on despite the race being rained out.  I'm sure that is a bummer.
It's a nice day outside, a little on the warm side but pretty much what one would expect for a day in mid August in Southern California. 
It will be back to work in the morning.  At least I have Big Brother on TV tonight.  I just love that show.  What a coup they pulled on Dustin the other night.  Everyone wanted Dick out of the house all week and Dustin wanted to be put up as a pawn, and as so often happens the pawn is the one that leaves.  He will be the first person in the sequester house.
I'm sure I have taken enough of your time today so I'd better mosey on along and find something to occupy my time.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Friday! Yea!

It's been a long week.  Between tragedy in the family and work I am so ready to have a couple of days where I can relax and maybe do something fun.
Anyone have any great plans out there that they will be doing this weekend?  I'd love to know what they are.
It was so sad to hear about those rescuers for the miners being killed.  That truly is a tragedy when you are trying to save people that you don't even know are still alive and lose your life in the process.
I hope anyone that reads this will have a fun weekend.  TTFN

Sad Week so Far

It hasn't been a good start to the week so far.  Yesterday my Aunt's Father-in-law passed away.  They were living with them and I know they are going through a tough time right now.  I am kinda bummed out about it as well.  So if anyone is reading this please say a prayer for them.
Other than that, nothing else is going on around here of any importance.  Have a good week!

Sunday Morning

Here it is Sunday morning.  Rene came home late last night.  They are preparing for inventory so he is putting extremely long hours.  He is already off back to work this morning because the person that was supposed to be opening his store called him because they couldn't make it.  Rene was really pissed about that.  He was ranting and raving this morning and really it was a lot more peaceful around her once he finally left.
Sometimes I like being alone.  I have been alone a lot lately.  Even when Rene has off time from work it seems like he would rather be out at some bar with his friends.  When he is here it seems like he is constantly mad about something and it tends to bring me down.  So right at this moment I'm happy to have some peace around here.
Maybe I can call my friend Heather and maybe we can get together for a while.  Rene doesn't seem to like me spending too much time with my friends but it is OK for him to do that.
I have reconnected with a couple people that meant a lot to me when I was around online before.   I really value your friendship, it means a great deal to me and I wish I hadn't gone away like I had to.  I hope y'all understand that I had my reasons and that I don't know how long this may last this time either. 
Well, that is about all for now.  Have a good Sunday!  TTFN
I called Heather and she is going to meet me over at my mom and dad's for his weekly Nascar party/bbq.  So at least there  will be something fun to do today.: )

Lonely Saturday

Here is it a beautiful sunny summer Saturday in Southern California and all I have to do is sit here.  It is liberating and all being able to be back online again.  I've missed being here and the friends that I made over a year again.  Renewing friendships and making new ones are important to me.
Rene is at work, which is kind of a blessing to me right now.  I need some space from him.  He does continue to check on me via the phone it seems every hour.  Rene is a jealous man.  He is afraid that if I have any friends that I will somehow leave him for greener pastures or something.  I do love him and I know he loves me but sometimes I feel so smothered by him.  I try to be devoted to him but he makes that so hard sometimes.  He stays out late when he isn't working so he can be out with his friends, all the while not wanting me to do anything without him.  Maybe I will go to my parents house and spend a little time with my mom and dad.  My sister just got married last month and she moved all the way to Seattle.  I miss her lots.
I really don't have that much to say right now, or at least don't have the words to put them into writing at the moment.  I will be eating dinner alone tonight, which seems to be the norm these days.

I'm Back

This is my first new entry in about thirteen months.  I don't know really what to say other than I don't know how long this will last.  I miss being here.  I got a lot of joy as well as support while I was here before.  I don't know if anyone will remember Ally's Corner, my previous journal.  I did have a few friends and people I really cared for.  I hope they can understand that I left under circumstances that I would rather not go into at this point.

My life has changed over the past year a great deal.  I got married last July, and graduated from college with a BA in Psychology this year.

I hope to maybe make new friendships as well as renew some old acquaintences.  I will close by saying welcome to anyone that happens to come across this journal and as I used to end my entries . . . TTFN (Ta Ta For Now)

Hi Brandi!!!
