Announcing my new Dear Ally Journal


Hi everyone.  I have taken the step of creating another journal for the sole purposes of the Dear Ally column I mentioned in my last entry.  I figured it would be better that way.
I welcome all questions for advice whether or not you think the problem to be important or not.  Here is the link Dear Ally and you can also always find the link by clicking the Dear Ally graphic in the sidebar to this journal or the graphic on this entry.
I do hope you all will participate, it would make me happy.  Hope you all had nice weekends and that your four day work weeks will be great as well.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Lot's to Talk About in a Short Time

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful week and that you have many good and fun plans for the weekend.  My week went pretty well and was pretty fast.  Next week will even be faster with only four working days and then one of my favorite holidays Independence Day!
I wanted to share with you a couple charities that are close to my heart.  I do so love children and most of you know that I can't wait to someday have some of my own. Sometimes children don't get the live the lives that they need and their lives are cut short due to many reasons including catastrophic illness.  It breaks my heart when a little one will never be able to grow up to live as an adult.  So I wanted to pass along a couple of links to these charities so you could check them out and maybe get involved in someway in your communities.
Dear Ally?
Rene  has been bugging me for a while now saying that I am so addicted to the Internet that I should make myself useful.  LOL  He thinks that I'd be great at giving advice to people that may want it.  He often calls me Dear Ally and thinks I'm more hip than the old Dear Abby column.  I don't know about that but I do care about people and decided that I would love it if any of you wanted to ask me advice on anything I'd be happy to do my best to help you.  So please send me your problems and or relationship questions and I will be more than happy to answer them here.
Reality Shows
As most of you know I love watching reality TV shows.  My favorite, Big Brother, will be back on the air on July 13 Woohoo!  Hell's Kitchen is down to the final two between Petrozza and Christina!  Should be exciting.  The Mole has been pretty fun to watch and that caps off a wonderful Monday night with The Bachelorette on before it.  I really do like DeAnna and hope she finds what she is looking for.
Anyway, I think I've jabbered enough for one day.  I know you all have many journals to read.  Have yourselves a happy weekend and remember to keep a smile on your pretty faces.  Luv ya!  TTFN

Hi Everyone!  I hope you have had a happy weekend so far.  I've had a pretty good one.  Today is relaxing day and of course BBQ day at Mom and Daddy's!

Friday night me and Rene went to dinner at Black Angus and we went to see the movie "Get Smart".  It was pretty good.  It was slow starting but it was ok, not great, but fun.  I will say that Anne Hathaway is a really pretty girl and I sure wish that I had her legs!
Yesterday went over to Heather's and went swimming with her family and Valerie.  They have such a beautiful pool and hot tub.  You never want to leave or get out.  The weather has been so fricken hot here the past several days.  It is supposed to start cooling a bit today.  Summer is here!
I wanted to pass my condolences to the people in the NHRA community who lost Scott Kalitta yesterday in a horrendous crash in New Jersey.  It was fiery and ending in a big wreck at the end of the drag strip.  They will race today with heavy hearts.
Hope you all have happy weeks ahead and here's sending good vibes to all of you!  Luv ya!  TTFN

Laker Girls vs Celtics Dancers

This is my contribution to the NBA finals which are ending tonight as our Lakers are clearly getting trounced by the Boston Celtics.  I mean, this game is so bad I was forced to come up with something that makes me happy.  LOL  So here they are the Celtics Dancers and the Laker Girls.  I singled out two of them, one from each team.



This is Allison, she is a graduate from USC!!  Yeah baby!  You go girl.


This is Alison as well.  She only has one "L" in her name so is isn't quite as perfect as me or my Laker Girl friend of the same spelling as me!  LOL

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

I Think I'm Back to Normal

I think I'm getting back to my old self.  It has taken me longer than I would have ever anticipated.  The end of last week hit me with such ferocity and unexpectedness that I guess I was ill equipped to deal with my own feelings and emotions.  I guess it is way easier for me to help others than to help myself when something not so good happens.
I think my friend Deb really helped today with getting me out of the duldrums.  She sent me such a sweet, caring and wonderful email that it just hit the right spot at exactly the right time.  She told me how much light I had inside of me, how I do so much to make her feel better when she isn't feeling so great.  I guess that I just realize that I have so much more to offer than sitting her moping around.  It took a little longer than it should have but here I am, feeling much better and more like me.
Thank you all for your concern, I truly from the bottom of my heart appreciate each and everyone of you that I consider my friend.  I hope you will all have a happy tomorrow, which just so happens to be Friday the 13th.  Don't walk under any ladders or allow a black cat to cross your paths.  LOL    Luv ya!  TTFN
Your Ice Cream Personality:
You like to think of yourself as a fairly modest person. And it's true that you don't talk yourself up... but you're also pretty happy with who you are.

You are a pretty cautious person. You look before you leap, and you don't leap often. There's a bit of a wild child within you, but it doesn't get out often.

You are a fairly open minded person with a wide range of tastes. You are quite accepting of unusual ideas and people.

You tend to have a one track mind. You prefer not to multitask.

You can be a big dramatic and over the top sometimes. You are bold in every way

Sad and in a Daze

Hi everyone!  I haven't much felt like being online the past couple of days.  I've been in a real funk and kinda depressed.  I've been crying a lot too since Friday night.  One of the clients I really liked committed suicide.  I just saw her on Wednesday and she didn't seem to be any different than she always has.  She has had bouts of depression in the past.  I feel like there should have been something I could have done to have prevented it and I feel a lot guilty right now.  Maybe I'm not cut out for this kind of work.
I want to acknowledge my friend Jimmy for picking me as one of his editor's picks this week.  I have had two in two weeks and I feel special here in J-land. 
Kasey Kahne won the Nascar race today and that made me a little bit happy.  Usually I'd be ecstatic about that but I am just not feeling it at the moment.  I really wish I could reset the hands of time and go back to Wednesday and change the outcome of the events for the rest of the week.  I'm sorry if I'm a downer today so I will just leave this entry at that. 
Hope you will all have a good week.  Luv ya!
