Getting Ready

Hi everyone.  Hope you had a good day today.  I had a so so one.  I'm working only half a day tomorrow so I can finish getting packed for Saturday.  I can't wait to see my sister, I miss her so much.
I added a domestic violence hotline graphic, a cancer ribbon graphic, and a couple of pictures of Carrie Underwood to my sidebar.  I got the domestic violence graphic from Indigo Raven's Lament .  She is such a talent as well as a sweet, caring, and loving person.  Be sure to visit her.
I really don't have much more to talk about tonight so I will end this now.  Hope you will all have a Happy Tomorrow and enjoy your weekend.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Tired, Tired and Still Tired

Hi Everyone!  Today was a long day at work.  Not that the clients made it long but I was so tired out from yesterday that rest hasn't caught up with me yet and fatigue is still here even as I write this.
Me, Heather, Mom and Dad went to the Nascar race yesterday at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA.  We only got to enjoy 87 laps of racing even though we got there at 9am and didn't get home until after 9 o'clock last night.  The race had a couple of accidents and a bunch of weather related delays.  I was wet and tired let me tell you.  So we finally headed home and they were planning on restarting the race at eleven o'clock pm Pacific time but the water was still weeping from the seems in the track and they finally postponed it until today. 
So they finished the Sprint Cup race today without me in attendance.   Carl Edwards won but my driver Kasey Kahne did ok.  They also ran a Nationwide series race after the first race which had been postponed since Saturday.  Tony Stewart won that race.
So, I think I will end this now before I completely lose all of my readers entirely.  LOL  I know most of you don't like Nascar much or sports in general, but I grew up a daddy's girl and I am so sports oriented.  I'm a Dodgers fan, USC of course, Anaheim Ducks fan, and Lakers fan.
I will have to start getting ready for my trip to see my sister this weekend.  Time is creeping up fast and Saturday will be March already.  Dang, today is ten months until Christmas.  LOL
I hope you will all have a happy tomorrow and be sure to include a smile on your face as part of your daily routine.  Luv ya!  TTFN

February 19

Hi everyone!  I hope you are doing well, and indeed, visiting your journals I have found most of you are.  Though some are down right now, sorta like me, I am in this funk and can't seem to get out of it.  I wish I could figure out what is going on with me.
It was just a cool day today with many clouds in the sky with a hint of wetness.  I sound like the weather chick on the evening news.  LOL 
My sister is almost done with the chemo treatments.  She has three more to go and I know she will be very happy when they are done.  She is eating very scarcely and she says she has lost about ten pounds.  I worry so much about her.  She has always been so vibrant and athletic, always on the go and mostly with a smile on her face, but right  now, so much down time, not working, staying at home, and the dreaded throwing up.  The only positive thing she tells me is that her hair hasn't or isn't falling out and probably wont since the dosage isn't at the highest amount.  I will be visiting her for a week.  I will be leaving on Saturday morning March 1.  I'm not a big fan of flying these days but I am looking forward to seeing my big sister Carrie.
I think I have gone on enough with all of what is or isn't going on in my life at the moment.  I do hope you have a happy tomorrow and as always be sure to keep a smile on your face!   Luv ya!  TTFN

This That and the Other


Hi everyone!  I'm feeling a lot better this week.  Last week was just painful.  I haven't much felt like writing in here but here I am anyway.
I hope you all voted yesterday.  My candidate, Hillary Clinton, won here in the state of California.  I thought it was interesting that she won in Massachusetts after Ted Kennedy, Caroline Kennedy, and John Kerry endorsed Obama.  Maria Shriver, the Governator's wife here in Cali endorsed him as well.  The Governator himself endorsed John McCain who won the Republican side of the primary.
My sister isn't doing so hot these days.  She isn't eating very well, she is losing some weight, but so far no hair loss.  They told her she may not lose her hair because the dose of chemo she is receiving isn't the highest by any means.
I watched a story on 20/20 the other night about Natalee Holloway.  If any of  you read my last journal I was like a regular commenter on what was going on in that investigation.  It looks like that young kid that has been arrested a couple of times and released did know what happened to her.  He admitted to a friend, with a hidden camera in his car, that he was with her and she went into convulsions on the beach and laid lifeless.  He called a friend who took her out on his boat and dumped her in the ocean.  He also admitted that he didn't know for sure if she was dead or not.  I feel so bad for Natalee and her family.  What a terrible ordeal.
Did anyone see Jordin Sparks sing, or excuse me, lip sink the national anthem at the Super Bowl on Sunday.  I don't understand why she couldn't just sing it.  It was blatantly obvious that sound wasn't coming out of her mouth and that it was previously recorded.  Why have her there at all is she can't sing in front of a crowd. 
Anyway, I think that I have more than made up for not having an entry for a week.  Thank you to Dianna for the lovely graphic at the top and I just love the picture of Carrie Underwood that someone sent me that was taken on New Year's Eve.  Hope you will all have a happy tomorrow. Luv ya!  TTFN
