January 31, 2012 - Is it such a thing

Tuesday, January 31, 2012
Talk about an ending that made you happy.

Is it such a thing that there is a happy ending or is it just a fairy tale.  As for me I was brought up with the old Disney Princess being fragile and having my Prince come to my rescue and along with the Brady Bunch.  Everything will work itself out with a cup of hot cocoa and a hug from my parents. Then tomorrow it will all be gone and not have to worry about it again.  

With those kind of shows and movies, how can you not believe that  when it was one of the images drilled in your head.  Well it is a lie and only you can make a ending happy, not right away the happiness can be seen but doesn't mean it won't happen.

January 27, 2012 - Ending quickly

Friday, January 27, 2012
How do you feel about unfinished projects?

When I have a project and not complete the only thing I feel is failure and wonder why I started it but it winds up being why didn't I end it. Do I do this just because I like to set myself up for the failure.

Why I even feel like more of a failure is this is not the person I was in the past. Even with kids  I was able to bake, read and even go to school. Today, if I wash my dishes I am impressed I can complete that task.

January 25, 2012 - Reading is to be Enjoyed!

Wednesday, January 25, 2012
How do you feel about not finishing a book once you've read a few chapters?

Reading is the time where I like to spend wisely and enjoy the time to myself. Before children, I read the books tough I am not happy mid-book but today I consider it like fine wine.  

I feel no guilt in not finishing a book once I have read a few chapters because if there is interest lost, I return it.  Not all the times what Oprah and People magazine state it is a great read doesn't mean that it will pique our own interests.

January 24, 2012 - I'll do it tomorrow

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

What is something you recently started that you know you won't finish?

The to-do list has continually gotten longer with small comments listed as follows:
  • I don't feel good
  • I have dishes to do
  • I am too tired to start
  • I will begin tomorrow
That is how the cookie crumbles but look at me at 46, 10 years behind in starting a at a good paying job, no where even close to enjoying what I do at least at a 50% likeable factor.  

If the opportunity comes or need obviation, ask and receive. People do want to help you allow them.  It is the one key thing that will help motivation flowing when you need it.

January 23, 2012 - Finish What You Started...No

Monday, January 23, 2012
What have you recently started that you know you'll finish?

The saddest part of this question is that I have yet to find that out. I think the only thing is with finishing is getting my kids on the school bus.

January 20, 2012 - Cold Soup Again - Books

Reading is fundamental ..Reading is Fun the best part of reading is when the book is ready to be done.

When to jump ahead is when the books has to come to end quick that it never ends as expected.

Wow that is bad!!

January 19, 2012 - Do I leave when I miss a movie?

With the cost of seeing a movie outside the home, I intentionally leave early to ensure I am there for the previews and no later than 5 minutes for I feel that the beginning can also determine if it is worth it. If I am later than I go home and wait to get the mood to go out again and with my lazy being, I wind up seeing at home.

As for home, love the DVR, now I don't mind as much because I can pause knowing what time it starts and wait to start it when I am ready.

Of course another boring post of cold soup.

January 18, 2012 - What is the best first line of a book? Why?

Once again, there is not much to share on my memory of a book which I have the best first line. I am not an avid reader and that is my biggest regret.

January 17, 2012 - My First Favorite Teacher

I am so ashamed to admit that if I had a favorite teacher who influence me I don't remember. I don't recall making a connection with any of my teachers during elementary and high school. As a matter of fact, with high school I couldn't wait to leave and even had my eyes opened more realizing how politcs is a part of life before you leave school.

I am sorry that I have nothing of value to share.

January 16, 2012 - My Doll Chrissy

My first toy was my doll Chrissy. I loved her like no other kid could love a toy and can relate to Andy's relation with Woody in the Toy Story series.  My mom also made her clothes and always a new birthday dress that matched mine.

I will have to find out where she is today and replace so I can have a piece of my childhood for the rest of my life.

January 13, 2012 - My First Love

As I begin to recall my first love, I am hearing in my head Endless Love by Lionel Richie & Diana Ross with a flashback of Blue Lagooon. If this post you have not figured out the old lady I am, this is a giver.

My first love I met at church, as all good Catholic girls should I guess. When I first saw him was at the 12:45 Sunday mass when I was in 8th grade. The bad girl I am always made sure I was at that mass sitting behind him so when we shook hands for the peace, I was behind him. He always brought his little sister and there were times he was with his mom and a girl I believe he was dating. I did this without realizing I would actually meet and date though for a few months. 

His name was Mark with big brown hair and shaggy brown hair. He had this beach boy quality about him with a sweet smile.  He was three years older than me and lived by Adams High School and I met him by our local pizzeria. He saw me and recognized me from church and talked for hours.

The way I was brought up, I was not allowed to date boys so I snuck around for a few months until my dad caught us and I got punished.  That was the reason we broke up, and though it hurt it didn't sting.

I wish it was more exciting and maybe I can add a few tall tales but I won't since I like to leave the innocence there.

January 12, 2012 - Tell us about your earliest school memories.

The only memory I recall from my first day of school was taking a picture in my room. Back in the day going to Catholic School dress was very streamline and strict. 

My uniform was a hat, blue and white plaid jumper, crisp white shirt and a tie. My hair was long past my shoulders with huge banana curls.  In the picture I had my Barbie I don't know what it is the right way but it was my Barbie pageant walk way.

January 11, 2012 - My First Friend

My first friend was Jennifer who lived directly across from me. When I did meet her though we were the same age due to my birthday I was a year behind. Jennifer was always kind and made me feel welcome. During the summer we played double dutch with all the girls on the block. When it rained we played Barbies at our homes imagining what a great life they had in their town house.

January 10, 2012 - The Little Girl

Once upon a time there was a girl with big innocent brown eyes and very curly brown hair. She was a quiet girl but had a smile that brightened the room. Her mom was a seamstress and made all her Barbie clothes with many close friends on her block in Brooklyn. It was a good time where everyone said hello. Those days will always be missed.

January 9, 2012 - What is your earliest memory?

Earliest memory is one that I have been working on in Therapy in opening that Pandora Box that has been closed for a very long time. One faint and I mean faint memory was when I was three years old in the summer at my first dance recital in a basement type place. I know I had pink shoes, pink tutu and the Shirley Temple curls.

January 6, 2012 - Do you wish the start of the year was in a different season? Which one?

For this question I find it can be two fold. As for those who look at the New Year, I also figure if I cannot or not ready for the new year is to use it when Easter comes along for Christ is forgiving us of our sins when he is resurrected. I rather have it occur in Spring when the new life comes and the colors. It is also nice when the days are longer rather than be dark when 5:00 approaches

January 5, 2012 - What is the hardest part about a beginning?

The hardest part of having a beginning is the courage to start. Courage is what is needed for when you no longer have the strength and require help to be picked up just when all is lost. No matter how strong we believe we are, it is not the truth. Everyone needs help no matter how much we say we dont’ ..nor is it begging when you ask for it. It is the prided that stops us from beginning strong.

January 4, 2012 - Are you superstitious about beginnings?

Are you superstitious about beginnings? Anything you do to start out on the right foot?
Yes, I am very superstitious and each year I see signs that I realize could have been warning. I noticed when I start my year sick I wind up being ill for the remainder of the year. If I start disappointed it ends the same way.

January 3, 2012 - What is your favorite start-of-the-year tradition?

My favorite start-of-the-year tradition is going to the movies on New Year’s and incorporating the pork and black eye peas for the past two years hoping for luck but maybe I am having too high of expectations. I wish I could write more but at a loss. I realized also with it being my birthday and even more than ever my horoscope has more meaning to use a guidance for the new year.

January 2, 2012 - Welcome to the New Year

Welcome to the New Year
How was the holiday, wish I can say it was enjoyable but I be lying. At least to a point I will be lying. One thing I can admit to and fully grasp as each holiday gradually fades to a sunset there is a reason why some call their in-laws, out-laws.

For New Year’s Eve, it was spent food shopping to prepare for the return back to school and tentatively enjoying a quiet weekend. That is no such luck; it seems my darling DH accepted a dinner invitation to his mother’s.
First, before you beat me up saying the kids have to see their grandparents, I never stopped him in going. Do not get me wrong, I have not intent to see if I do not want to. Just negative energy drains me to a point that it takes a few weeks to recover.
As I babble, he tells me after I get the food started through my oldest child he is going to his mom’s for dinner and not sure what time he will be home. Fortunately, there was no frying pan out yet. It is just the overall principal to tell me his mother asked to come for dinner and he said yes. He is in this “I AM A MAN PHASE” and will do anything to entice an argument. That was not in the plan because I did not want to start my New Year angry or yelling or even being spiteful. Rather, I just agreed and supported the decision to ensure the children were ready for when they leave.
As for me, I did cook a nice dinner, which was a pork pot roast, hopping john and sauerkraut with apples. It was good and the remainder of the foods was to be eating on the next day for dinner with the family.
After dinner, I went to visit my parents and my sister who came over. As always, for once as much I do understand what the realistic side is of certain things I complain about, maybe one year she will let me vent and agree on what idiots they are. You have grown people on the out-law side who feels it is their job to reprimand my kids and all the children in this family.

When I am not there, they take every opportunity to be the parent of children, which are not theirs, but are hypocrites if someone reprimands their child especially when it is nothing that they felt wrong. If you feel the need to be in charge of your brother and sister’s children and they choose not to comment well then it is their choice. I for one, will not tolerate it and if certain people do not’ appreciate to hear then tell the person to literally turn the other cheek since to their ears sounds like Pig Latin.
