Merry Christmas

I just wanted to stop by and on behalf of my family to yours, Wish you a Very Merry Christmas!

I love all of you and you have given me the best Christmas present of all . . . You!

My sister and brother-in-law arrived late yesterday afternoon and I'm so glad she is here. I miss that girl more than she will ever know.

Please keep our Bloggerville friends Emmi and Donna, who supply us with so many wonderful tags and snags, in your prayers for the unfortunate times they are going through this holiday season. Merry Christmas to Valerie in Texas, I miss you and Luv ya Lots!

You Spread a Lot of Holiday Cheer

During the holidays, you represent the true spirit of Christmas.

You give freely, and you enjoy this special time of the year.

There's a good chance that you spread cheer every time of the year... not just during the holidays.

You're kind, upbeat, and generous. Anyone who crosses your path is lucky.

Friday Update

Hi Everyone, I thought I'd better update again. The last thing you saw from me was Cosmo and getting naughty. Hehe So I figured when Valerie came over tonight, to make up for that it was time to make super sweet so we can be on the nice list this year, so we watched the Santa Claus and the Santa Clause 2. Do any of you have tears in your eyes watching these movies like me? I do that for all sorts of movies that have any sentimentality to them. So hopefully Santa Baby saw that and put me on the nice list and if he did I have something nice for him come Wednesday night. Hehe

It was a very good week for me. I pretty much finished all my Christmas shopping, and had a very productive work week as well. I love this time of year don't you? All the twinkling little lights, the displays in the front yards, the work parties, the family get togethers. I absolutely just love it. Valerie is spending some time with me this weekend and we are going to Heather's family's big annual Christmas Party tomorrow night. Can't wait, it was so much fun last year.

Rene is doing well now that he is out of school until January. He is busy working and is out with the guys tonight. It's been a while since he had some free time and he deserves some fun time away from his wifey . . . but that doesn't mean he can stay away too long cause his little Allison has been reading some more Cosmo. LOL I will have to share again soon! : )~

Anyway, I have to finish up somethings so I can be ready for the Ghost Whisperer. Have a wonderful weekend. Luv ya! TTFN

You are Lively and Inspiring

You approach the holidays with lots of energy and enthusiasm.

It's definitely your favorite time of the year.

You are quite social during the holidays. You go to lots of events and get in touch with everyone you know.

While so much activity would make most people exhausted, it only energizes you more.

Of all the types, you are the most likely to treat your friends and family to expensive gifts.

You're also the most likely to wrap your gifts elegantly and simply.

***Adult Content*** ; ) Very Very Satisfying

I got this out of Cosmopolitan and me and Rene did this last night. Oh god did it feel so good. I know I'm being a little naughty but what can I say, I guess I am a little naughty. I really does feel good and maybe you can give it a try to if you haven't already. I can't wait for him to come home again LOL
Obviously, there are plenty of amazing sex positions to choose from, and we've brought you our fair share of them. But there's one in particular that rises above the rest on the steaminess meter: getting busy against a wall. In a recent Cosmo poll, men (and women too) voted this sexiest position of all. (Maybe we can thank the lusty library scene in Atonement, when James McAvoy ravishes Keira Knightley against a wall-to-wall bookshelf!)

The basic primal nature of having sex against a wall is the reason why it's unbelievably torrid. "When you're so aroused that you just can't wait another second, this is an immediate solution for expressing that intensity," says Lori Buckley, PhD, sex therapist in Pasadena, California. "The fact that your guy is pressing you into the wall lends it an urgent, almost aggressive feel." But while this position couldn't be hotter, it's not the smoothest to put into action. So it helps to have a primer.

Maximize What Makes It So Scorching
The sense of urgency in wall sex is one of its lustiest selling points. Amplify that by leaving on some of your clothes, suggests Buckley. Begin ripping off each other's attire as soon as you walk through the door, yet don't take everything off — for example, you can have him pull down your underwear but keep your skirt on or unbutton his shirt without stripping it off.

Also adding to the appeal is that you're being dominated. "Some guys love to feel powerful, and since he has you pinned against the wall, he's in complete control of the pace and depth of his thrusting," explains Sari locker, PhD, author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Amazing Sex. With your man right in front of you and the wall buffering your back, your movement is restricted. You'll experience a sensation of vulnerability and confinement, which can be a huge turn-on.

Another hot bonus is the superb clitoral stimulation the position provides, according to Buckley. Your pelvis is slightly lower than his, putting your hot spot directly in line with his pubic bone. When he's deep inside of you, gently rub your C-spot against him. At the same time, tighten your thighs — it'll narrow your vaginal canal, creating pleasurable friction.

Master the Position
Stand about a foot away from the wall, and lean your back against it. Your man should stand facing you, so close that you're almost touching. Straddle his legs, have him bend his knees slightly, and slide your back down the wall to lower yourself onto him. As he slips his hands under your butt, wrap your legs around his waist. For balance, circle your arms around his neck or back or hold on to his arms. Firmly press your back against the wall for leverage while he straightens himself up.

Because you have limited mobility, he'll be doing the thrusting, rocking your pelvis back and forth with his hands in tandem with his movements. When you're finished or want to try a new position, make the transition seamless by having him squat down until your feet reach the floor.

Special Challenges Since the position requires considerable strength on his part, you probably can't sustain it for very long. If there's not too much of a height difference between you, nix fatigue by remaining standing, rather than having him lift you. Hook one of your legs over his inner elbow, keeping the other on the floor for balance.

You might also worry that he's doing most of the work. "Stressing about whether he's running out of steam or you're too heavy can interfere with your enjoyment," says Buckley. Keep in mind: He's so excited to try this sizzling style that he's probably just thinking how sexy it all is.

If you do want to get more involved, here's a fix: Have him pull you a couple inches away from the wall, until only your shoulders rest on it. Then begin slowly circling your hips in either direction. It is a great sensation and also gives you some control.

Try a Sexy Variation
A doggie-style spin feels super-naughty, plus it's easier than the regular move. Stand an arm's length away from the wall, facing it, with your legs shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Bend over so your torso is at a right angle to the wall, parallel with the floor. Place your palms against the wall, and let him enter you from behind. (To make up for a minor height discrepancy, stand on your tiptoes or have him bend his knees until he's level with your vagina.) Push your hands against the wall in time with his thrusts or reach down and stimulate yourself.

You also can regulate how far he penetrates you. If you're craving intensity, bend farther toward the floor. "He'll be able to enter you very deeply, and you'll feel increased pressure," says Locker. For shallower penetration, straighten up slightly. "Each angle grips the penis differently, providing new sensations for both of you," explains Locker. You also can stand up and press your entire body into the wall.

For this next hot twist, place a bar stool against the wall, perch on the edge of it, and lean back to rest your shoulders on the wall. Your pelvises will be nearly aligned, so he can slide right into you. For increased friction, wrap your legs around his butt. "The stool allows the two of you to concentrate more on kissing and touching and less on maintaining balance," notes Locker.

And that extra affection lends the sexiest position a very sensual and intimate vibe too.

5 Hot Things to Do with Your Hands
While he's holding you during wall action, your fingers are free to roam. These moves will max the pleasure.

1. Draw him close.
Arch your back, and put one hand behind his neck and pull his face toward your breasts. It shows how bad you're craving him.

2. Apply pressure.
Push your nails into his back or gently tug the roots of his hair. A rough touch feels wild and conveys your excitement for him.

3. Stroke your breasts.
Watching you turn yourself on is a thrilling visual for him.

4. Hold his face.
Place your palms flat against his cheeks, and gaze directly into his eyes. This way, you'll be able to see each other's enjoyment.

5. Give a sexy squeeze.
Grip your guy's biceps, chest muscles, and shoulders — expressing how much you love his body gives him a confidence boost.

Hump Day Happenings

Had a very busy and trying day today. Sometimes clients get so emotional and when that happens it tends to make me get that way too. I know I have stated this in the past, but it is hard for me to not show emotion. It was actually a very good thing for my client today letting go since they had tried very hard to keep it bottled inside. The client saw my tear and started apologizing and I had to tell them that there is no reason that they should have to do so and that it is me that should be doing that. The person really felt a lot closer and really opened up to me the rest of the session. Very draining but very rewarding! Such as my life and I wouldn't change a thing about my career choice.

I'm chatting with some friends right now as I write this as well as commenting on blogs. I guess I'm in the mood for chit chat tonight. So if you are on right now IM me, the more the merrier I say! LOL
Nothing much on TV tonight, which is to say there aren't any reality shows that are on right now. Tomorrow is Survivor and the finale is Sunday night. Then what am I gonna do?!!! I guess the Bachelor and Idol aren't too far in the offing. I need another Big Brother to make it all worth while . . . and Lost will be starting up in January as well. Hooray!

I think that is about all for now. Hope you will have very happy Thursdays and only two more weeks to Christmas and three to New Year! Luv ya! TTFN

You Are Dancer

Carefree and fun, you always find reasons to do a happy dance.

Why You're Naughty: That dark stint you had as Santa's private dancer.

Why You're Nice: You're friendly. Very friendly.

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a nice Monday. Mine was ok but I have this awful headache which stems from my recurring neck problems from the car accident I had earlier this year. I don't think I'll ever get over it and it is something I will just have to cope with. I try not to complain about but some days it just gets pretty bad like it is right now.

Nothing much exciting happened at work today. Rene told me about some rude customer in the store yesterday who got mad because they were out of a certain Christmas fixture. I guess she raised holy hell and made a scene about it. They ended up giving her ten percent off something else but she was still a bit bitchy about it. Merry Christmas to her right?
The finale of the Amazing Race was last night and I was delighted to see Nick and Starr win the $1,000.000! I didn't care much for her at first but the more time went on I found myself rooting for her. She is a beautiful and I'm betting sweet girl. Survivor ends this next Sunday. I can't believe that is over already. I hope either Sugar or Bob end up winning.
I really don't have much more to say tonight so I will end this by wishing you a happy Tuesday. Oh btw, Lisa is now the proud owner of the Brownie points I was offering in the last entry. She was the first to tell me what TTFN meant. As Tigger says Ta Ta For Now. Luv ya!

Your Christmas Stocking Will Be Filled With Little Wrapped Presents

You've made Santa a very happy fellow this year.

Don't worry - what happens at the North Pole stays at the North Pole!

Hi Everyone! It's been a long busy week but the weekend is finally here? Hope you all have exciting plans or at least a relaxing couple of days ahead.

I wanted to thank all of you that went by our other journal and were kind to Valerie. It took a lot for her to tell everyone what she has been through over the past year and she told me to thank you all. She says she feels free from the emotional pain that was placed upon her. If you haven't had a chance to read her entry please do.
Val and Ally's Collaberation It has pretty much turned into Valerie's journal and that was mostly my plan from the start. Shhhh, don't tell her ok? Hehe
This is my Carrie Underwood photo of the day. Isn't she just gorgeous? Be sure to vote for her in the People's Choice awards. The link is on my sidebar at the top.
Me and Valerie will be going on out to the Rose Bowl tomorrow to watch USC, as Val would say "humiliate", UCLA. Sorry Michelle, but you know your Bruins aren't very good this year. Speaking of Michelle, she is doing ok after her separation. She is sad and her main focus is on her children and I just wanted to let her know that I love her very much and I plan on coming for a visit sometime soon hopefully.

Talked to Carrie on the phone today and she is doing well. She is really starting to love being in Washington, she never had too much of a chance to with all that she went through earlier this year. All she used to say was it was always rainy, dreary and cold. But now she is liking it, but of course she misses her little sis.

Anyway, hope you will all have wonderful weekends. Luv ya! TTFN
(BTW * * * The first person who can tell me what TTFN means gets 10 Brownie points!! LOL)

Oh no say it isn't so!!! Look at my blogthings survey today.

Your Christmas is Most Like: A Very Brady Christmas

For you, it's all about sharing times with family.

A Quick Hi and a Request : )

Hi Everyone. I've been pretty busy so far this week and I just haven't had much chance to dig into your blogs, but I will when I get a chance.

I wanted to direct you to the blog that Me and Valerie Co author. She has written an important entry about herself and she could use a little support if you could lend it to her. She is such a sweetie and I know you will think so too if you ever get to know her.
Val and Ally's Collaberation I know she will appreciate you stopping by.

I don't have much to say tonight other that to wish you all wonderful and happy Thursdays wherever you may be and whatever you may do. For me it is work but I will make it a happy one, you can bet your bottom dollar that the sun will come oup tomorrow. OMG . . . I think I'm Annie! LOL Luv ya! TTFN

Turkey Day Weekend Winds Down

Hi Everyone! I hope that you have all had sensational weekends so far. This is the end and then it is back to our normal weekly duties tomorrow.

I just got back from dropping Carrie and Dan off at the airport for their trip home. I get so emotional, I sat there with tears running down my face, Carrie just smiled at me and wiped one of those tears off in such a sweet sisterly way. Where is she now that I am doing it again? LOL Luckily it will be a few more weeks and they will be back here for Christmas, I can't wait for that.

Looks like Rene's family will make it up here for Christmas as well and I know he is very happy about that. Valerie had a great time on Thanksgiving with us and boy can that chick eat. I don't think we had any turkey left after she got through, of course she had a lot of help too. LOL She was very happy that her Cowboys and Longhorns won. We will see today if her Texas team will get to play in the Big 12 championship game. USC beat Notre Dame last night, Yea!!! All they have to do is beat UCLA, those stinkers, sorry Michelle, next week and the Rose Bowl is there's again. I hope that happens cause I will get to go.

Today, it is rest and relaxation day. Valerie may come over later. We spent the majority of the day together yesterday going out shopping and then coming back here to watch some of the football games. You should see the way the guys oogle over her when she walks by. That girl sure has it goin' on!

If you haven't noticed, on my sidebar I have put a link to vote in the People's choice awards coming up in about a month, and of course I am campaigning for Carrie Underwood to win. She is nominated for two awards. If you feel so inclined, please go and vote and don't forget Carrie! : )

Anyway, that is about all for now. Hope you will all have a fantastic Sunday and here's wishing you a very happy week ahead. Luv ya! TTFN

You Are an Impulse Shopper

When you go shopping, you have no set strategy. You just browse until something catches your eye.

You like sales, but you mostly like them because they're an excuse to shop.

Of all the types, you are the most likely to be a shopaholic. You can't stop shopping!

You're not the kind of person who makes a list or plans what to buy. So sometimes you end up with too much stuff.

Happy Thanksgiving

Hi Everyone! Hope you are off to a wonderful Thanksgiving this year. It should be a fantastic one around here. My sister and brother-in-law arrived late yesterday afternoon and I met them at the airport. For some reason I was extra emotional and I couldn't stop the tears from flowing with joy to see Carrie. I love my big sis soooo much.
I want to wish each and everyone of my dear friends, online and off, the most fantastic of Thanksgivings. If everyone looks into their lives I'm sure you could come up with a big list of things to be thankful for. Enjoy your meals, the football, and whatever else you have planned in this quite unique American holidays. Love ya! TTFN

You Are a Pilgrim

Like the pilgrims, you've felt persecuted for your beliefs from time to time.

You have a strong sense of right and wrong. Your morality sometimes makes you feel out of step with the modern world.

You may not go as far as moving across the world, but you still identify with the pilgrims.

Well, except for the whole stealing land and killing Indians thing.

Hump Day Tuesday Thoughts

Hi everyone! Here it is Hump Day Tuesday night. One more day to go and the four day Thanksgiving holiday is here. I have so much to be thankful for this year. Great friends, great career, great online friends, and not least my wonderful family. I cannot wait until tomorrow night when I go to the airport to pick up my Sister and Brother in Law. I am chomping at the bit to see Carrie. Can't you tell?

I did get some kinda not so good news from a family member today. My cousin Michelle. She broke up with her husband, well, kinda kicked him out of the house because of something he was doing, and it wasn't cheating. No one in their right mind would cheat on her because she is so sweet and beautiful. I don't want to go into details as to why, but could you all keep her and her two children in your thoughts and prayers. She told me she was thinking about coming back home to California. Only time will tell if that happens. I feel so bad for her and the kids, especially with the holidays coming, but there was no reason for her to put off what she had to do because of that. I support her decision 100 percent. I love you Michelle. xoxoxo

I just chatted with Valerie a couple of minutes ago. She seems a little down because this will be the first Thanksgiving she has ever spent without her family. I will do my best to make sure she is well taken care of and that she will feel plenty of love on Thursday. Rene is missing his parents as well. They moved back to Mexico a couple of years ago. He wants us to go their for Christmas. Maybe we can go for a couple of days, but I guess that is one thing that I am selfish about, spending time with my family that time of year. I'm trying to get him to get them to come here. Would be delightful if that happened.
I wanted to congratulate Carrie Underwood for winning an AMA on Sunday for the best Country Album. She is so darn talented and beautiful. Way to go Carrie. I guess you can see there are two Carries in my life. LOL
I saw on myspace my friend Brandi was touting that her gas was really really cheap in Houston. It is still over $2 a gallon here. I hate you Brandi . . .LOL . ..Jk of course. Gas prices sure have come down, I don't mean to be pessimistic, cause that is not in my nature, but aren't you like me, just waiting for the other shoe to drop and for those prices to just shoot up ridiculously again? Someone on CNBC the other morning had a good idea, he said with all the profits the oil companies are having maybe they should pitch in and help bail out the auto industry here in the U.S. I thought that made a lot of sense since both of those industries go hand in hand with one another.

Well, I think that is about all for tonight. Hope you have a great Wednesday and that your holidays are off to a fabulous start. Luv ya! TTFN

Much to Say and Thank You

Hi Everyone! How are you this fine Saturday? I hope well and having fun and possibly not reading this until after your fun is over with.

Nothing truly exciting has happened this week. Just your average, typical, run of the mill weeks. No USC football this week, they will be taking on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish next week and I will be there!! I am rooting for Arizona to knock off those pesky Beavers from Oregon St. today so we will have the inside track to the Rose Bowl.

Rene is busy working already today. Between work, class, and studying, that man is so very busy, puts me to shame. I have the sense that I am a lazy bones next to him these days. I'm proud of him trying to better himself and I think he is proud of himself as well.

My sister Carrie will be down this week for Thanksgiving and again on Christmas. I can't wait to see her. It seems like forever since I have seen her. She is doing pretty well these days having a normal life after what she went through physically at the end of last year. I just can't wait to hug her, I do so miss spending time with her. You take for granted all the times you have when you are young, when you see one another every day, but when life changes, and that happens a lot as I have found out, one becomes so much more sentimental of the past and you want to make every second in the present one that counts more than the last. I'm getting teary eyed thinking of what might have happened and so very thankful that it didn't and that I will get to see her in just a few short days.

Valerie will be coming with us to enjoy Thanksgiving with my family since she won't be going to Texas to see hers. She is bummed about that and misses her family very much. She will get to see them on Christmas, but this is the longest she has been away from her mom and dad in her life. She is such a sweet person.
Last, but certainly not least, I wanted to thank Terri at
Memories and Sweet Serenity for passing along an award to me. She is so sweet and sincere and if you haven't been on over to her blog then by all means please do so. It is very nice to be recognized for just being yourself. When someone sees you the way that you work hard at being, then you know you are doing something right in life. I will put the link to this award here but I don't think I could possibly find enough space in this entry to list everyone I think deserving of this award and I am limited to only five. Many of the people I am very fond of and enjoy their writing have already be recognized for these awards as well. Thank you so much Terri and forgive me if I don't exactly follow suit. I do so appreciate your recognition.

Well that is about all for today . . . I know, you are thinking dang Allison you have been long winded today! LOL Sometimes you just can't stop me once I get started, I can be like the Energizer bunny in that respect, I do like to talk. Anyway, have a very happy weekend. Luv ya! TTFN

Monday Evening

Just wanted to stop by and say thank you for worrying about me, but I was in no way near the fires to the extent that I was in any danger. The closest fire was about ten miles away. We did get our share of smoke but I feel really bad for all of those that lost their homes and are displaced. If you want to help in anyway I urge you to donate to the Red Cross.

I had an Ok Monday. I had a couple cancellations so I had time to do some extra reading and a few topics that pertain to a couple of my clients so that was good. I never seem to get enough time in the day to put in some extra studying.

Rene is still working his job, but he did start schooling but is going to take it slow. His work offered him more money to stay on and they want to groom him to be a store general manager. So he is conflicted, he does love the home improvement business. I think he is really good when it comes to people and customers. I thought I was too, but it can bet very tedious and some people just go out of their way to try to make you miserable. I am so much more happy doing what I am doing now.

Well everyone, that is about all I have for tonight. Hope you will all have very happy weeks and if you haven't already done so shoot Donna
Ds Designs and Other Things a get well message and tell her that she is missed. I'm sure she will appreciate it and maybe it will hasten her recovery time. Luv ya! TTFN

Fires Here in So Cal

Hi everyone. Hope you are having a happy weekend so far. It isn't such a happy one here in Southern California with all of the fires going on. The Sylmar fire really isn't too far from here. Over 600 homes have been lost, and they just said that this fire is being treated as a crime scene which would indicate arson. The Santa Ana winds are now supposed to last until tomorrow sometime.
There are also fires in Corona, Yorba Linda, and that one up near Santa Barbara as well. It is so sad to see all of this devestation and made even worse when some criminal decides he want for people to suffer. If someone were to die at this fire, God forbid, it would be treated as murder for the person or persons that may have set it.
Watching the TV right now and it is so very sad. People talking about losing their homes, I can't even imagine how that feels and I hope I never do. There are many evacuations, road closures, rolling blackouts and power outages, and 75 mile per hour winds have taken its toll in the LA area.

Anyway, please pray for these people, they need it and I hope you all have a good weekend. Luv ya! TTFN

Weekend, Friendship, Survey

Hi everyone! Hope you had a good weekend and a Happy Monday as well.

As you know I hoped Val get moved into her new apartment in Glendale and she is happy as heck. That chick had a grin from ear to ear all weekend. She is such a joy to be around. I do want to say it was very sad to see that a mutual friend of ours decided to leave some not so nice comments on our blogs and on myspace. Jealousy can be a very bad thing and I hope that you will get over it soon so we can all be happy friends again. I'd hate for you to think that I have forgotten you and that my friendship with Val has anything to do with ours that is negative. You know I love you and always will and I hope that we can talk soon.

It was a bit of a hectic day at work today. Scheduling miscues and a comedy of errors led to mass confusion, well maybe not mass confusion but you know what I mean. Once you upset the apple cart the rest can fall like dominos. At first the little things started getting to me and frustration set in but after a while I figured that it was well beyond my control and just chilled as best as I could. Now I just look on the day as one in many that I will live and a short while from now it won't mean anything. I guess that is the best way to view life, 100 years from now no one will know the difference of our daily lives, so live today as best you can and enjoy it likewise.

I'm sure chatty tonight for some reason. I heard about a friend of mine I met over the internet wasn't doing so well and she has had health problems that don't seem to be getting better and they are very serious. Would you all be so kind to keep her in your prayers . . . she lives in Kansas City, MO. Thank you so much.

I think it is time to go, but of course the former survey ho of J-land that now resides in Bloggerville will leave you a little blogthings survey for you consumption. Have a happy Tuesday. Luv ya! TTFN

Today and Our New Blog

Hi Everyone. I hope you all had a nice weekend followed by a better than decent Monday. It was a pretty good day for me. Nothing overly exciting happened I was just in a good mood for some reason and generally happy all day. I felt like Snow White with all the forrest animals coming to my aid full of happiness. LOL Sounds silly huh? That's me.

I wanted to stop by and let you know that me and Valerie have decided to do a blog together. At first I was going to let her post with me here but she insisted on us doing a separate one. So without further adieu here is the link.

Val and Ally's Collaberation

I hope it goes better than my Dear Ally journal. Maybe me and Val can give advice together. Who knows what will go on there. If you have any suggestion please suggest . . . we could sure use the input.

Hope you will all have a happy Tuesday. Luv ya! TTFN

To Answer a Commenter . . . Please read it all.

This was a comment in my last entry, a strange time for a comment like this but I'd like to address it.

No disrespect intended... and we are all certainly entitled to our own personal thoughts and opinions, myself included.After you get a bit older, smarter and experienced, you can pretty much accurately 'guess' how and why people think the way they do.You are under age 30, live in CA, highly educated and prob. in a very Liberal school... NO WONDER YOU ARE FOR OBAMA!! Woo Hoo! You might think that you belong to J-Land, but I KNOW that you have prob never read and studied the Bible, nor do you wish to understand. If you did you would know that sanctity and respect for the life of the unborn is much more important than our pocket books. God is against the Gay agenda and abortion and most everything else Mr. Obama stands for. Please ponder on this for a while.Have a great day.

Now I wouldn't characterize myself as too young to have opinions on things that are important. I also don't pretend that I know everything about everything. I personally am for Barrack Obama because I think he has the best chance at changing the direction this country is headed. I disagree with the McCain campaign's characterization of him as a socialist. Very interesting that he would choose to pretty much call him a communist or nazi as that is what a socialist is more generally known as. I don't believe in putting labels on people because it generally is done out of spite and desperation. If anyone has run a positive campaign this year it is Barrack Obama.

No doubt that in life I will experience new things and my opinions will change on issues over time. I don't think that my youth is a bad thing because youthful thinking is what change is all about. I'm sure there are plenty of things in the conservative side of the aisle that the founding fathers would be aghast about. With times, thinking changes, and people change. I don't think tolerance of people is ever a bad thing. I live my life by the motto "Live and let live". Who am I to tell someone else how to live or what they should do or believe. That is what God has given us, free will to decide for ourselves. He who is without sin shall cast the first stone. No person is of perfection, even Jesus being a man couldn't be 100% perfect now could he? I guess I have read the bible and maybe interpretation is the problem Mr. Commenter. You, I am assuming, are from an older generation when things weren't quite as open as they are today. No one knows exactly what God is all about and what he has intended for our futures. To read the bible and accept it verbatim without realizing that the old and new testaments were written by men long after the fact of the events taking place, and to boot, translated and retranslated over the millennia, an intelligent person would come to realize that the original texts, connotations, and context were most likely different than from today's world.

So what meant something one way then could mean something completely different now. I do believe in a higher power, I do believe in God and I do believe that the core values of the bible are God's word. To think that man didn't put his input into the bible is to think blindly. Man has a way of shaping things to make others believe the way they are thinking. So what bible are we to take verbatim anyway. The Catholics have their bible and believe that all other Christians are heathens and sinners. The Mormons have their "latter day" way of thinking. The Jews don't believe that Jesus was the Messiah. Who do we believe? Are only a select few right, or are we all mistaken?

I believe as a human being that everyone has a right to live life the way they see fit as long as it doesn't step on anyone else's. I believe as an American citizen that we all have a right to the "pursuit of happiness" and that we were all "created equal". I see nothing wrong with allowing marriages of the same sex to take place, who is that bothering? Is it something that is going to prevent a Christian from gaining his pass into Heaven? I think not. I also don't think that God would condemn me for love but would accept a repentant murderer on his death bed, do you?

As far as abortion is concerned, I am not in favor of it nor would I ever have one unless my life was in danger or the child was conceived out of criminal conduct on the part of someone who violated me. However, I don't think that I have the right to instill my beliefs onto someone else. I may not like what they are doing, but you know, we cannot ever have everything the way we would want it in life can we?

I am not a material girl. You will have to talk to Madonna if you want that. My pocket book has never been the driving force in my life. I am someone who gives of myself without expecting anything in return. That is the profession I am in and that is the way I have always believed.

I don't think belonging to J-land or Bloggerville is a bad thing. I love being here, I love my friends here, and I hope they value me in their lives. To me, love and friendship and happiness should never be taken for granted.

These issues I will ponder until the day I die.

Luv ya everyone. TTFN

A Co-Author With Me?

Hi everyone! Hope you have had a nice Tuesday. It has been ok here. Was going to watch the rest of World Series game five tonight, but that won't happen until tomorrow so I will probably watch something like "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" tonight. That is my favorite Peanuts cartoon . . . love it, love it, love it!

My friend Valerie was looking at my blog the other night when I was posting an entry and she noticed that you can have more than one author on your journal. Now she wants to be a co author of this journal with me. LOL She doesn't want to do one of her own but she thinks it would be cool if she could do this with me. What do you think? I will leave it up to my followers to decide. She is a very sweet person and I have no idea what, if anything, she would actually say here. I'm not totally opposed to the co-author thing. If you would, could you please vote on my poll on the left side of my blog page. : )

Anyway, I think I will go for now. Hope you will all have a very happy hump day tomorrow. Luv ya! TTFN

Hi everyone, and a very pleasant Sunday morning to you wherever you may be. It's been a pretty nice weekend around here. Rene has been in a very chipper mood and even brought me home this very pretty fall flower arrangement on Friday. I do love to be spoiled with flowers every once in a while. I think just about every girl likes that.

Yesterday, Valerie came over and we did a little shopping at the local mall, picked up some cute undies and Vickie's Secret. She made me watch the Texas football game yesterday, in which they squeaked by Oklahoma St, and they will still be number one in the polls which has her stoked. Last night I made her watch the USC game in which my guys held on to beat Arizona. We looked to see Heather and her dad in the stands but they didn't show too much of the USC cheering section so we didn't get a glimpse at all.

Valerie spent the night and as I write this that lazy bones is still conked out on the sofa bed. What a lazy chick she is. LOL I hate to disturb her though, she looks so pleasant, comfortable and sweet sleeping there.

Well today, supposed to head off to my mom and dad's for the weekly Nascar BBQ. I swear, I love going, don't get me wrong, but if I don't go for some reason I am made to feel so guilty. " We never get to see you!" "It isn't too much to ask for you to show your face to your mom and dad once a week is it?" I know I shouldn't fall for the guilty but what can I say, I'm human too. I do love them so very much but once in a while I would just love to veg and stay in my jammies all day doing nothing and going nowhere.

Before I end this I wanted to thank Mary,
Just Mary , she is so very kind as always has nice words of encouragement. I do wish she would continue with us all here in Bloggerville out of my own selfish reasons, and I do understand why she doesn't want to continue with her blogging full time. Just stop bye and tell her how much she has meant to those of you that know her and maybe keep the encouragement up so eventually she may change her mind.

Anyway, looks like lazy bones over there is starting to stir so I'd better get off of this think. Hope Y'all, Valerie Texas talk, LOL, have a very nice Sunday. Luv ya! TTFN

The Wind are Blowin!

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a good week so far. Mine has been pretty exceptional if I do say so. I have made tremendous progress with a couple clients and I feel stoked about it and I know they are feeling a whole lot better too. I guess I shouldn't take the credit since it was the clients who were the ones that were able to make break throughs with their therapy . . . but it makes me very very happy!

I had a nice weekend too. I guess I just love the fall such as it is here in California. We are once again in the midst of another Santa Ana wind event which could lead to more fires. The brush is so dry around here with not very much rain the past twelve months or so. I pray that fires don't get started but one of the fires last week was started by downed power lines from the winds. I wish they could put all those lines underground so the wind wouldn't effect them so much.

That is about all I have to report on for now. Hope Y'all have a great hump day tomorrow and be happy always with a smile on your faces. Luv ya! TTFN
