My Weekend

Hi everyone!  Well it was a wonderful weekend for me.  I hope you all had one as well.
Heather took me to the BMW dealer that a friend of her dad owns.  He showed me the model 328i that I was interested in. We took it for a test drive and of course I just fell in love with it.  I'm not one to be enamored over a car but this just seemed to fit me perfectly for some reason.  So I ended up purchasing it at their cost which was a good savings for me.  It is silver in color.  Heather and her family always seem to go out of their way to help me and make things and life a bit easier and many times more fun for me.  Rene thinks it is a cool car but now he wants a new truck since I have a new car.  Boys always have to one up us women huh?  LOL
Then Heather drove me and Rene down to Anaheim for the George Strait concert.  That man sure can sing.  I just love his music.  He was in the round, which means the stage is in the dead center of the arena, and our seats were very nice indeed.  I'd say we were probably around fifty feet from the stage.  We all enjoyed ourselves immensely.  I recommend seeing him if he ever comes to your area.
I hope you will all have a wonderful week ahead.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Late Friday Night

Hi everyone.  I hope your Friday was a good and that your Saturday and Sunday will be full of fun, friendship and Love!
I went out looking at cars tonight with Heather.  She has been urging me to get a BMW.  Where as I cannot afford the model that Heather has, there is a model or two that is affordable for me and I think that I am now leaning towards getting one.  Here is a link to the model I may be getting.
My Uncle Phil will be going to a baseball game tomorrow night and I would have loved to go but I am going to a concert.  I heard on the news tonight that at that baseball game they are expecting 115,000 fans.  That is so incredible.  I heard the record for a baseball game is 93,000 and the record for a game in any sport was a USC game against Notre Dame in 1929 at Soldier Field in Chicago and there were 112,000 for that.  Have fun with the crowd Phil.  LOL
Have a happy day everyone.  Luv ya!

Friday Eve, Weekend Plans

Hi everyone!  Hope you are all having satisfying week so far and tomorrow is Friday!!  Yippee!  This should be a very fun and exciting weekend for me.
First of all, I appreciate those of you who gave me some input on cars.  Lisa, I just don't want a hybrid car right now so I am not considering the Prius.  Katie, I had thought about a Volvo, they are pretty safe cars.  I have looked at a Nissan Sentra Michele, but I have decided against getting one.  I guess I have sold myself on a Volkswagon Passat probably.  That car just seems to fit me or is a perfect fir for me.  So tomorrow we will be going out and probably purchasing one.
Thanks to Diama for this! 
Then tomorrow night me and Rene and Heather will be going to a concert at Honda Center in Anaheim.  We were just there a couple of weeks ago for Carrie Underwood and this time we are going to see George Strait.  I have always wanted to see him so I am really looking forward to that.  It ought to be a long, fun, and fulfilling day Saturday.
I hope you will all have a wonderful weekend as well in whatever endeavor you choose to partake it.  Do me a favor and smile, be happy, and allow happiness into your hearts this weekend and always!  Luv ya!  TTFN

Monday and Meme and Gaz


To start off tonight you may notice that a couple of my pictures are of sexy males.  This is of course for all you women out there that need a little bit of a thrill.  But the main reason is for Gaz.  He needs something to perk his interest a little more so I thought I'd humor him a bit.  So here's to you Mr. Married Silly Boy!


Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and that your Mondays were not too long and dragged out.  Mine was ok and actually pretty interesting and somewhat fulfilling.

I have been looking at getting a new car and wonder if anyone has any suggestions.  Right now I am thinking about a Volkswagon Jetta or Passat.  Not really interested in a Beatle.  My old car was a Honda Civic and I liked it but I want something different now.  My friend Heather wants me to get a BMW but there is no way I can afford that.  If I tell Heather I couldn't pay for a BMW she would be offering to make up the difference, so I don't say that to her.
Anyway, tonight I will leave you with a Meme that I got from Michele's journal. My life, my rules   Have yourselves a Happy tomorrow.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Happy, Well Kinda

Hi Everyone!  I hope you had a wonderful day today, mine was pretty good.  I find myself in a very happy mood tonight and there really isn't any specific reason for it.  Just happy! 
I did finally get the situation with my car resolved with the insurance company of the woman that hit me from behind a little while back as you may recall.  They are finally cutting me a check so I can go get myself a new car.  My little Civic was totaled.  They are also going to pay me a certain amount of money to cover my medical bills and a little for the pain and suffering.  I do still have stiffness and soreness from time to time in my neck and upper back between my shoulder blades but the doctor has assured me that there is no damage in there because the x-rays I took were all negative.
I'm so happy that my boys, the USC Trojans, are in the NCAA Basketball tournament which started today.  This is the second year in a row and with OJ Mayo our star player, who knows, maybe we can make it at least to the final four.  My cousin Michelle just laughed at me and said they had no chance.  She graduating from the enemy, UCLA and she says that this year her Bruins won't be denied.  We'll see!  And darn it, I am watching the end of the USC game and they have tanked it.  One and done for my boys.  So I guess Michelle will get the better of me this time!  LOL
Anyway, I hope you will all have a very nice Good Friday tomorrow.  All of you that are Christian I hope you will take a moment to reflect upon what that day means and the significant sacrifice Jesus made for us.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Hmmm. A Good Question

Hmmm.  A question from my last entry I think I should address.
I was asked if Rene completes my life then why would I need a third wheel like Heather?
I have to say that I hardly consider my friend Heather a third wheel, whether it be in romance or anything else.  I can say that my life was a long way from being complete some three or four years ago.  At that point I was working in a bank at a job that wasn't fulfilling and I had a boyfriend at the time that turned out to be a cheater.  In fact, I walked in on him with his new found love in our bed.  That ended our relationship on the spot.  Believe me, that was absolutely no fun and it really pained me to the core inside and emotionally I was pretty much a wreck, though I tried hard on the outside to pretend that I was unaffected.
Since then, I was reunited with Rene after several years of not seeing him.  He enlisted and was in Iraq for a time.  We had grown apart and I really don't know why.  Rene was my first love going back to Junior High School.  He was the first man I had ever made love to.  Then, somehow, we drifted apart by the end of our Senior year in High school.  I really did miss him and there was an emptiness inside.
I didn't have a whole lot of friends in those days either.  That brings me to Heather.  I met her a few years ago when I decided to go back to college and complete my education so I could get myself into a career I found fulfilling and something that I felt I could make a difference in.  We hit it off from day one.  We did so many things together.  I never had a friend like her before and I am pretty sure that she had never known friendship like I was showing her either.  So I guess you can say we were joined at the hip for a while then. 
Our relationship has grown through the years and has gotten closer and closer while I had a relationship renaissance with Rene.  I don't throw my true friends under the bus for anything and Rene was aware of that.  What I hadn't expected was that I would end up having a physical relationship with Heather along with the closeness true friendship brings.  I have kind of stated this in the past so I am going to come right out and say it now.  I now consider myself bisexual.  Rene is aware of this and we have been able to work through this and even incorporate it into our lives.  I think at this point I would be lost without either of them in my life.  They both complete me.  They both help to shape who and what I am today, as well as keep my grounded.  I love them both on so many levels.
Romance comes in many shapes and forms.  I guess you can say that I like my cake and I eat it too.  I'm not asking for anyone to morally agree with my lifestyle.  You either accept an individual for who they are or you don't.  I have a belief of live and let live.  I never try to be judgmental about anyone and their situation.  I choose to make LOVE my primary life's goal.  Love, happiness, faith, friendship, being positive, smiling and just going with the flow has been my life for several years now. 
I have grown, learned about who and what I am, and have accepted it.  I hope that all of you understand that and like me for who I am.  I do care about all of you that choose to come here and read what I have to say and leave comments.  I read them all, and I appreciate each and everyone of them and you for taking the time out of your day, and to care enough to be here with your heart and to grace my life with your presence.
Ok, I think I won't go on and on.  I do hope that this answers the question and that maybe all of you know me a little better now.  I hope you will all have the most enjoyable of weekends and always keep a smile on your face because it is infectious. 
Luv ya!  Ta Ta For Now!

Last Night and Beyond

Hi Everyone!  Oh man, I had such a blast last night even though I didn't have much time to make myself pretty.  It was like, Rene walked in the door, showed me the tickets, I finished my entry in haste, signed off put on some clothes and out the door we went.  I probably looked hideous but I hardly cared I was so excited.
Did I ever tell you that Carrie Underwood is my fav?  LOL   And Keith Urban is so dreamy!  Carrie came out and sang her new number one single All American Girl.  Of course she sang all of her hits as well.  But the highlight of my evening was when Keith Urban sang "Memories of Us".  That is our song!  It means so much to me and Rene.  He leaned over and gave me a passionate kiss and told me he would marry me all over again without hesitation.  Awww.  I felt so special. 
He surprises me from time to time with things he knows I will go crazy over.  I have to say he makes my life complete.  Of course I rewarded him after we got home last night!   I showed him how much I loved him.
Today was an ok day.  Fridays are usually less stressful since we don't have as many appointments as a rule.  Here it is Friday evening and Heather will be coming over soon and spending the night.  I haven't seen that chick in a couple of weeks.  Tomorrow is shop til we drop day!  LOL  Not really, but going shopping with her is fun.  It's just fun to hang with her doing whatever.
I hope you will have a wonderful weekend.  Remember to always stay positive no matter what and keep a beautiful smile on your face.  Luv ya!  TTFN

My Day . . . OMG, Rene brought Home a Great Surprise

Hi everyone!  Hope you are having a good week so far.  Well if you haven't had one, don't despair, tomorrow is Friday, yippee!
It's been a tiring week emotionally.  Some of my clients have had breakthroughs but getting there we have had to endure much pain and sorrow and that can be draining.  I always try to remain positive, that is my mantra in life.
Do you have anything exciting planned for the weekend?  I am just planning on seeing my friend Heather and doing some shopping on Saturday and otherwise hanging out with her.
OMG!  You will never guess what just happened.  Rene just came home early from work and he had a surprise for me.  I tell you, this man loves me so much!  He is taking me out tonight.  We are going to go to Anaheim for a concert . . . Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban!  I can't believe it.  It has been sold out for a long time now.  I'd better get off of this thing and make myself presentable.  Have a great evening and a happy tomorrow.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Reality TV and New Friend

Hi everyone!  I thought I'd check in now that I have a moment or two.  I am just finishing watching the American Idol results show. I wish they had gotten rid of Amanda.  There is something about that chick I just don't get.  The person that did get voted off I think was a good choice.  David Hernandez was deserving of not coming back.  He had a weak performance and so did Kristie Cook and she had better step it up.  I do like her but she needs to find a song that suits her and get the audience going.  She is lovely, has a nice voice, but has not found her niche so far.
Big Brother was interesting tonight.  The person they voted out of the house they turned right around and voted back into the show.  James was very happy to be reunited with his newly found love Chelsia.  I must say that I'm not a great James fan but he makes her happy that is for sure.  I think Chelsia is sweet and she is very pretty.  We won't know who the new HOH is until Sunday, well, that is of course unless you have the live feed. 
Anyway, I wanted to say hi to my new friend Deb who I wonder if she will even see this shout out to her.  If you are reading this I want you to know that you are such a cool person that is very sweet and special and I am glad that I have gotten to know you.
Anyway, I think I better mosey on along and end this entry, but not of course, before I attach a wonderful survey courtesy of Blogthings.  Have a happy tomorrow and keep a smile on your face always.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Home Again

Just got back from my trip a little earlier.  Glad to get off the plane.  I like going places, if only I could bypass the airport everything would be marvelous.  And to make things worse is that I get one hour less of my much need beauty sleep tonight!  Gotta spring forward with all the other daylight savers.
I had a decent time seeing my sister.  I think maybe she is glad to see me go . . . not really, but I think I was too much the mother hen.  At the beginning of the week she was pretty weak and tired.  Carrie finished her last chemo treatment on Monday and by the end of the weak she was feeling much better.  She was doing a lot of smiling like I am accustomed to.  I am once again relegated to being some 1500 miles away from her once again which saddens me.  I do believe she will be ready to go back to work soon.  She is getting stir crazy being indoors and at home.  We did go out to a mall and did a little shopping yesterday.  I think that invigorated her.  She was sad to send me home today.  I hope I will see her again soon, I have tears in my eyes right now just thinking about not being there.  I'm too emotional sometimes.
I'm getting a bit tired so I think I will get my butt off of this thing, but not before I give you another wonderful survey!  Have a happy Sunday everyone.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Tuesday Afternoon

Hi everyone.  I'm here in Washington.  The flight was pretty uneventful, well that is excluding the screaming baby four rows back from me.  That did kinda get on my nerves.  Flying really isn't my favorite thing to do.  I Got here safe and sound on Saturday and Dan, Carrie's husband, picked me up at the airport.  The weather is a bit on the cool side for this Cali girl but I will cope.  I guess the weather this week here is considered good and will be sunny and 59 later this week.  Not bad.
It is so nice to be able to be here with my sister.  Carrie was so happy to see me as I was to see her.  She really doesn't have too much strength right now.  Thank goodness that Monday was her last chemo treatment.  I went with her so I could see what she went through.  It doesn't look like too much fun at all to say the least.  Then she was at home throwing up and I felt so helpless to do anything to help her.  She has been sleeping a lot and her energy level is very low right now, which is so out of the ordinary for her.  She is so outgoing but right now she is almost a recluse.  She doesn't want to come out of the house for anything.  She feels so down right now, but hopefully things will start looking up now that the chemo is done.  She misses her teaching job so much.
Right now she is in sleeping so I have a moment to do this.  The Maury Povich show is on right now and it is so over the top.  These girls are allowing these men to control them completely and are even hurting them physically.  I mean, if you were one of these guys doing this awful behavior why would you go on a show like this?  And then they are going to a boot camp.  I don't know, really crazy to me.  I would never stay with someone like that let alone go on one of these shows. 
Anyway, I hope you are all doing well and that you will have a happy week.  Keep a positive attitude and a smile on your face always.  Luv ya!  TTFN
