Tuesday morning I received a horrifying phone call stating mom was in the hospital and had fallen down the stairs and broken her ankle. My friends mom that lives in her building found her laying on the ground screaming for help. The dr decided to do surgery that evening as the swelling and breaks were so bad.
I took off the following day and headed to So FL as I know she would need my help as my sis has recently started a new job and I don't want her to lose it. She broke her ankle in two places. They put in pins, screws a wire across and a plate. She has been in so much pain and it was such a tough 4 days watching someone you love suffer so badly. I hate to see anyone in pain and my mom it freaks me out as she isn't in the best of health to begin with. It could have been much much worse- -she got very lucky the dr said that she didn't break her hip.
I had to drive back home yesterday and all I can do is think of her and pray she is okay. My sister made extra keys to moms house for a couple ppl to go in and check on her as she barely can make it to the bathroom alone. I just feel terrible that when things like this happen I don't live closer. *sniff*
I changed my time off so Christmas I'll be missing my family. This will be the very first Christmas I've ever spent w/out them. Here, I was so worried about where I'd fit her and my sis in this one bedroom apt. I feel rather selfish worrying over stupid shit.

Well it's been some time so I figured a real post might be better than a simple hello. Been very stressed these days grrrr. Holiday season does this to most of us so I'm not alone.
My family will be here in 4 weeks. They've never met Bri and he and I am stressed as I don't even know where to fit them in this one bedroom apt for a week... shit ya know. I don't want them staying at a hotel I just think my mother forgets I no longer rent the big house I was in for the last 8 yrs prior to moving back to apt life. She even tried to tell me she saw this apt furnished and knows there's room. I quickly reminded her ugh no ya didn't you were gone for 2 weeks before the new furniture I purchased was even delivered. Grrr nothing like arguing over stupid shit.
So what else...oh renewing the lease here for another year. Rent increased 51.00 a month but I really can't see moving at this point. Last yr it was so draining and I will not be moving on New Years Eve no way! I work only 4.5-5 miles from here so that alone saves money on gas nd wear and tear on the car so in all actuality I should consider it a gain.
Job-Doing very well. Learning so much more over the last 6 months since I'm under a new team/boss. Always more to learn and more stress but I'm hanging in. My efforts are hard work are finally getting noticed. I got my evaluation this week & notta one negative thing was said. Actually it made me feel pretty damn useful and good about myself. *pats own back*
Bri-Has lots of good news to tell. He oughta post ;) Forgive his absence as WoW was to blame for so long but now he's playing another game so we'll just crown him fucking video king and leave it at that hahahaha ;)
On another line been shopping like a fucking maniac. In debt and shopping oh will I ever learn lol. It is great therapy for me though ;) Seriously, I have found steals this past month and I'm thinking hard about selling on ebay come January. I've been pondering on this for months now and I think it's time!
Lastly, all else is fine. Mom's condo is finally for sale. Just awaiting a buyer and she's moved everything into her other condo now and the bathroom and kitchen got a total makeover so I can't wait to see it. I need to get home again soon. It's been so long and I miss sunny South Florida and my friends *sniff*
Hope you all are well. Sorry for the book but it's been so damn long!
Love you guys- xo

Fleetwood's Mac & Cheese
GoGo's Jello Shots
Culture Club Sandwiches

Thanks All xo

So Bri calls me Imelda as she was known for her "excessively large collection of shoes". I have a problem I admit and just love shoes. I have MANY and my favorite brands are Nine West, Steve Madden and Franco Sarto ohhhhh and just *anything* cute hehe.
Now.....I must ask ladies or gents too -do tell how many pairs of shoes do you own? I just want to know if I am abnormal here....and after I hear from you I will reveal the number *blushes* unless I am "of the norm" then I can just spit it out hoorah.
Get to counting someday soon and let me know! Oh the things we do when we are bored. And the most embarrassing story is when I moved from the terradome to the apt my sis was carrying BAGS full of shoes but didn't know what was in the zippered bags. She said: "gosh you have alot of clothes" me: Ummmm, no those are just my shoes!
|Friday, July 28th, 2006|
Finally it's Friday! I wish I could say I had a whole lot planned for the w/end but don't. And you????? Go on make me jealous.....
Anyways, Happy Friday All-

|How many of you have pets??????
Was curious as I know alot of you have cats awhhh! For now, Bri is the only pet around here hahaha. I miss my dogs so much and hate that they both passed on within a yrs time. It happens but as you know now in an apt especially this one it is not the best for a dog round here especially as I am a fan of *BIG* dogs. Bring on the Newfies hehe ;)
I've never had a cat before or owned any animal other than dogs oh and fish lol. I am really trying to think of a pet that's inexpensive and won't tear the place up. Bri loves snakes I am a little afraid of them yes, I am a whimp!
Should I stick with some fish? Maybe I ought to just get some. I've never had a cool aquarium or anything like that. I shouldn't spend the $ but, but, but....... I am really going to try my hardest this week for a p-t job at night so again something not too costly would be a good choice. I think it would cheer me too- -something else to love :)
Any suggestions on a cool pet or would you say Go Fish;)

|Woke Up To BOOM.........
WTF so it's a rainy day here in ATL and I hope to see some f-ing sunshine this weekend. Worked a half day yesterday as I couldn't sleep at all Thurs. night go figure. It's all Bri's fault lol.
Slept better last night till this morning the thunder I thought was going to blow the apt up Christ! Can't sleep now and wide awake. So much for sleep ugh!
I am bored and surfing LJ for some new pals. Anyone wanna share some friends awhhh.
Happy W-End All!!!!!! Anyone got plans? Huh, Huh....
|Friday, July 21st, 2006|
So if a man gets aroused and gets none =blue balls correct?
So if the same happens to a woman what do we call this anyone, anyone...... There's got to be a word here. I've always wanted to know it.
Happy Friday lets fucking brainstorm here- -Step right on up and gimme a term!
|Thursday, July 20th, 2006|
Here's the dilema....debts! Every paycheck I get is already spent save a few hundred which my c/c bills minimum pymts are. So, I am trying to think of a way out of this mess.
My sis tells me to get a second job- -the problem is I work 9:30-6 M-F so other than w/ends where do you think I can find work after 6 pm other than shake dancing? Help any ideas????????
I'm thinking hard and I have been considering waiting tables. A good friend of mine says negative and tells me most waitresses want weekend because that's where the money comes in and that I will have a hard time finding something during the week due to my availability being ughhh not so flexible.
Recently got a small raise hey better than none but it is not cutting it! Other than that......how does one survive when the outgo is more than the income HELP!!!! Any ideas to cut expenses? And yes I clip my coupons damnit.
|Monday, July 17th, 2006|

|Viva Las Vegas......
Leaving Sunday for LV and that's my latest exciting news lol. Yes, I love Las Vegas and this makes my 15th trip there. Ready to see my fam and hang out with my sis, soak up some desert rays, party, gamble, drink and have some fun. I need it and I need the getaway bad to free my head of craziness ;)ie, work especially as it has been hectic!
We need some new pics together and I don't have a digital camera. Might be a good investment as I'd like to show you guys some pics of the apt as well as of me to scare you all away hahaha.
Any recommendations on a decent camera that isn't too pricey? Lemme know. Happy Monday urrrr!

Learn from our mistakes. Why can't I seem to do this? Kind of like repeated offenders or habitual violators pft. In my case, I have proven to be my own worst enemy- - save the big house. Case Closed! *needs* head exmamined fast.
