Wrapping Up ...

the year 2006 !

2006 is coming to a close on Sunday. I think back to all that has happened this year ... and I can't really complain ... it's been a good year.

List of things I am grateful for in the year 2006:
  • Going to Boston to meet my Enclavian Bitches.
  • Paying off my car.
  • Redneck Reunion - great time with some great friends from home.
  • SBGS bowling tourney ... Hollywood (me) got LOADED !!!! I also got us a good table at the restaurant due to the fact that Peppermint P cut open my shirt !!! LOL !
  • Seeing Johnny in action (even though he was in a MFY uniform)
  • The MFY's NOT making it to the World Series
  • Bonding with some great work friends ... ('Niffer & Conway)
  • My passion for Scrapbooking !
  • My family. They are all wonderful (Mom, Dad, DS!)

The list could keep going ... but I am just sticking to some:


Wishing each of you happiness in 2007 !

Scrooge ?

Now that Christmas is over, I am beginning to wonder if I am Scrooge?

I am such a wicked awful crab today. I don't want to talk to anyone, and I am a talker - TRUST ME !

I just want to go home ... and relax ... I am just coming off of a 12 day vacation, and trying to adjust back to the real world again. *sigh*

Home ...

we made it ... safe and sound. It is such a long trip ... 6 hours ...

I unloaded the car last night, and set up some of the stuff for the ds because he wanted to play with his new toys ...

I took a shower, watched a movie, and went to sleep !!!

~ such a boring life ~

Merry Christmas !

The morning is now over !

I awoke to the ds shouting that

had come ... such a sweet child he is ...

We spent 2 hours opening gifts and laughing and taking pictures ... in the back of my mind I know that my vacation is coming to an end. I don't want to leave my mom.

The ds got a TON of stuff. WOW. He has already tried out about 4 of his new PS2 games. LOL !

I am thinking of putting in one of the many new DVD's that I received.

Here's to wishing everyone an enjoyable rest of the day ...

Merry Christmas (Eve)

Wishing everyone a safe, happy, love filled holiday with your family and friends ...

My mother is upstairs, baking away for a wonderful dinner tonight, and preparing for tomorrow's meal ... I should probably go help clean up some more ... :)

Have a great holiday !

up in the air ...

so ... i am seriously contemplating deleting this entire blog ... and starting new ...

sometimes i want a change in my life and i am not in the mood for anything drastic ... so i am going to think on this for a short while ...

Friday, December 22, 2006

I'm back ...

I need a vacation from my mini vacation to my cousins !!! LOL !

Oh ... what a great time ... my little sweetheart was spoiled rotten, and everyone knew it !

We baked cookies, and read stories - and I would change the names in the stories to be about us and others in her (our family), and we colored pictures ... and opened presents .... and went shopping ... and told secrets ... and played "kitchen" ... and watched a movie ... and had bath time ... and played and played and PLAYED !!

A little girl is MUCH more than I am used to ... my ds is very low maintenance compared to this little girl ... but what a treasure she is ...

We went to someone's house to view their Christmas lights ... they have 3 acres of ALL LIGHTS ! It's BEAUTIFUL ... I will post pics at some point .... they had free smores ... and free hot cider & coffee with cookies ... and the kids saw Santa ... and they got a free winter hat w/ a commemorative patch.


I wrapped some presents after a quick-mini, last-minute shopping trip this afternoon ... we just ordered some pizza ... so I have to go and pick that up ... will my day ever end ????

I'm not complaining !

Wednesday, December 20, 2006

another day of travel ...

I am going away with the ds for a couple of days to spend time with my cousin, his wife, and their 2 daughters.

Growing up as an only child, I bonded really close with him. We are only a year apart, and we are the best of friends ... I actually named my son after him ! LOL !

So, I am going to go and take care of their oldest daughter tomorrow - so we can have some good 'ol quality time together ... I just adore her and we are going to have a fun time.

I picked her and the ds up some new crayons and Christmas coloring books and some special snacks ... it's OUR DAY tomorrow ... and anything goes !!! Ice cream for breakfast ? Why Not !!! Cookies for lunch ? OK !!!! I don't get many opportunites to spoil her, so when I do get them I take advantage!!!


Today - well tonight actually ... my home away from home ... The Enclave is one year old ! I don't know whether it's Happy Birthday or Happy Anniversary ... but ... to all of my EB's ... it's been a great year ... we have so many memories together ... and I look forward to another year ... Ok ... I REALLY look forward to a summer trip to Boston with you all again, but that's neither here nor there !!!!

Tuesday, December 19, 2006

Just another day of ...

doing nothing !

It is 3:00 pm and I am still in my jammies !

My parents, the ds, and I played a round of Red Sox Monopoly (my mother whooped us !) and then we played a couple of games of cribbage. Cribbage is good for the ds so he can work on his math skills and not even realize he's doing it !

I am bringing him over to his paternal grandparents for a couple hours here shortly ... and then we are going to my gramma's restaurant for dinner.

*sigh* I love not having to do anything ...

It's a nice day today - I did bring the dog out to his kennel ... so I have done SOMETHING today!

Tomorrow we are heading out to my cousins so I can see his daughters ... I will have them open their Christmas gifts early since I heard through the grapevine that my aunt & uncle are going out of town for the holiday. They don't tell their kids anything so I am bringing my gifts with as I fear they don't know not to come home for Christmas. How sad is that !

~ I'm off to get dressed now ... I can't be a bum all day !

Saturday, December 16, 2006

Early Christmas gift ...


I just had to share ... I am so excited to have gotten this !!!

Friday, December 15, 2006

~ Safe Journey ~

I arrived ... safe and sound ... it was a long 6 hour drive ... but worth it to spend the next 2 weeks with my parents.

Out Of Office ...

I love being able to put my out of office reply on !!!

I am ready to leave ... a couple more hours and I will be on the road ...

Never fear ... I will be checking in periodically !

holiday stress ...

*sigh* I am stressed today.

I am going on vacation tomorrow and keep thinking maybe I shouldn't go - of course I am going to ... but I hate leaving my co-workers in the lurch. I can't help but think about it. I'm sorry (if you are reading this ...) I know that once I leave tomorrow, I will be fine. It's just today is the day I feel bad.

I have 1.5 million things to accomplish before I head out today. I need more time ! Wait ... maybe I just need to relax ... it will be fine. It can always wait until I return.

ok ... now my stomach hurts.

Wednesday, December 13, 2006


Thank Goodness ! I have something good in Red Sox news to talk about !!! I can FINALLY say Matsuzaka's Heading to Boston

Pre-Holiday Gift Giving !

We had our holiday party at work today - and exchanged our "secret santa style" gifts ...
The recipient of my gifts was very happy ... so I am pleased with that.
I - oooh ... am very happy as well with the wonderful gift I received. A friend of mine - Conway Twitty - was my "secret santa" ... and she fooled me good ... I asked for:
  • Scrapbooking Stuff
  • Red Sox Stuff
  • Hinder's CD

So ... I opened my card ... and got a great gift card to a scrapbook store ... and then my wrapped present ... held this:

IMAGINE MY EXCITEMENT ! 12 months of wonderful men in uniform !!!!

On a sad note ... Trot Nixon is February ...

Baseball on my mind ...

I talked to a friend of mine late last week. She lives out in Washington State, about an hour or so outside of Seattle. She is coming home for an extended visit this Spring (March/April-ish). I have been talking about going out there for about ... OH ... the past 3 years !

I have decided (at least for now) that if I go ... I would like to go for a long weekend in May. Well, I had the idea of checking the Mariners schedule ... and the MFY's will be in town when I want to go.

We all know I am not a MFY fan ... but in my heart I am forever a Johnny fan ... in addition to loving the Red Sox.

How perfect would it be to see him play another game ?

So ... at this point in time ... I am thinking about going out for the Mariner/MFY series ... it could be a good time. At this point, I would also like to extend an invite to any of my EB's ... if they would care to join me ... for some reason ... a flight to Seattle ... is pretty damn cheap !

It's Monday.

I have nothing to say.

Have a wonderful day !

Get to know me list ...

~ ~ the Holiday version ~ ~

I stole this idea from BonnieRose !!

1.Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Hot Chocolate – HMMM !

2.Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? The Elves wrap them of course …

3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? Colored Lights. Can’t you tell I love color ?

I got ...

Nothing !

I have nothing to say today !

or at least - I have nothing to share YET today !

Wednesday, December 06, 2006

Middle of the week ...

I am so grateful ... I have a break from hockey for the next 2 days ! WOO HOO !

It's Wednesday ... and tonight I am going to work on my Christmas cards a little more ... I need to get them done and mailed ... but I am not yet halfway there ... so any time I have to spare, will benefit the cause !

The ds and I put up the tree last night ... I let him put up all the ornaments ... I haven't been into all of the holiday decorating the past couple of years ... it's so much work ... I have to take down all my "regular" stuff ... to put up the holiday stuff ... I just don't have the time. My mother takes about 2 weeks to decorate ... 4 days to do the tree alone !

I would like to start wrapping some presents to put under the tree ... but the problem is ... I haven't bought much for the ds ... I just do NOT know what to get him. He wants a PS3 ... but I am not getting that this year. I want them to work out the bugs first ... for that amount of money, I want to feel comfortable with my purchase.

*sigh* I am ready for my holiday vacation ...

Tuesday, December 05, 2006

Whew ...

Today is the first day in about 2 weeks that I have woken up WITHOUT a headache. I slept so sound and well last night, usually I turn over in the night, but I woke up in the same spot I fell asleep. I needed a good nights rest, and I got it.

We had a late hockey practice last night ... but the kids had a good time - they scrimmaged and it went by fast. We have practice again tonight ... and then again Friday. Not to shabby !

Tonight I am going to have to work on Christmas cards again ... I need to get these done, and out in the mail ...

Kristi called last night ... to confirm those that have "rsvp'd" for the Redneck Reunion Take 2 ... it may be quieter this time ... apparently we are planning on ice fishing ... whatever ... as long as I can drink, I will be fine. I need to cut loose, and relax, and "bond" with some friends. I need to take it easy ... I need a day for me !

Monday, December 04, 2006


I was totally stressing today because I wasn't able to add the usual color to my blog ... the option to add this wonderful feature was missing ...

I have corrected the problem and am once again happy with all things blogged ...

So ... uh ... I really have nothing to say ... except that I am back in color !

falling ...

Snow ... Today ... on my way to work. *sigh* I'm so not ready for this !

We had a busy weekend ... 2 hockey games for the ds ... and shopping for me ...

Last night I talked to my friend Kristi ... we are planning a party back home the week before Christmas ... Redneck Reunion Take 2 ! We had so much fun in September, that we decided to do it again.

A bunch of friends are going to head North for a weekend of drinking, talking, shooting, and fishing ... we may pull the tractor out for a midnight spin ! It's a great time, time to catch up and talk about the days gone by ... play a few time honored drinking games ... and pretend we are young ... like when we all met !

I will need to print out the pictures I took from the September party to handout ... there are a couple of really funny ones ...

Am I being punished ?


Last night was a night from hell. I'm not kidding.

I was talking to my aunt last night ... yesterday was the 2 year anniversary of my cousins death and my aunt is still taking it very hard. I try to be there for her, so she can vent whatever she needs to so she can feel better without others judging her. I believe it is healthy for her to have those feelings and she needs a way to get through them, and that's me. She has come a long way.

My step-mom called last night to let me know that my father had a heart attack on Monday. He is now home from the hospital as of last night. He needed 3 stints put in.

I feel like everytime I talk to them all I get is bad news. My fathers has cancer. It's in the liver, lung, and kidney. He has a cancer nodule in his chest too. I just don't know how much more I can take. He is still active, and working to treat his cancer, so we hope that this heart attack was a blessing of sorts to get more blood flow and make him stronger.

I am not that close to my father, which was his doing. His life choices made it that way. When I was 15 we started getting together for a week or two in the summer. I feel anger towards him for denying me of a father as a child ... and I am working on getting over my anger and resentment, so I am not ready to lose him.

Then to top off the night, I called my mother because I was so upset. She too was at the doctor yesterday for the pain she has in her back. It turns out she is going to need a new hip eventually ... She is going to try whatever she needs to to put off getting this surgery.

My mother is my everything. I can't stand the thought of anything happening to her.

So ... my life sucks ... but I will get through it ... it's who I am.

** Rant Over **

Elephant ... Poo ? WTF ?!?!?!?

So ... my Enclavian Sistah, Belle ... is a whack-o ... she bought paper ... made of ... ELEPHANT POO !

I hate poo ... Poo Paper

Oh well ... I still love her ...

** yawn **

I was up early today ... and I didn't sleep well last night. My nose was stuffy and was making it hard to breathe. I'll quit whining now.

I worked on my Christmas cards last night - I brought them into work today to show some of my fellow scrapbooking friends and get their opinions. If they were no good, then why bother continuing to make them, right ? I have 12 or 13 done so far ... I did 5 last night in 2 hours ... I need to move a little faster, eh ? But, the cards were made with love ...

It's getting very cold out ... today I wish I had a hat ... but I never wear one ... I need to get out the gloves and scarves too.

Last night, a package came from ... the ds is so upset and doesn't think it's fair that I get all these packages. I had to explain to him that I am ordering Christmas gifts ... so I am not buying stuff for me ... well, I have been doing that too, but he need not know that ! *sigh* just more crap for the holidays.

have a pleasant day ... stay warm !

Wednesday, November 29, 2006

news of ... nothing !


Tonight ... the ds is going to disect a deer heart. On Sunday he was running water through the valves and playing with it in the sink. He got this heart from his gramma ... so he decided to make it part of a school assignment and he is going to write a report about it. He seems very interested ... so that's good.

Being the good, and somewhat squeamish, mother that I am ... I will take a couple of photos of him in his studies ... for the sake of his report.

So, Mel ... that was for you ... didn't want to keep you in suspense !

NOTE: The deer heart was from a legal deer kill from the MN deer hunting season.

early ...

I went to bed early last night ... I had a headache and the chills. I was down for the count by 7:00 last night. I am a loser!

The ds lost his front tooth last night. He got hit in the face with a football at school. It is a clean break and was a LITTLE wiggly ... and they found the tooth ... so that's a good thing. The Tooth Fairy even made an appearance last night ... $5.00 !!!! Jeepers !

I am feeling a little stress lately ... at work. It's not a bad stress where I get mad and hate the world, but an internal feeling of stress. It's hard to explain.

Tonight I am working on some more Christmas cards ... I need to get them done and mailed out ! I usually have them done by now, and that's only because I usually buy them. Why did I decide to make them this year ?????

I have a deep need to have baseball back right now. I don't want to sit and wait to see what's going to come in the 2007 season. I want it to be the 2007 season NOW. I want to (hopefully) plan a repeat event from last year. I want to attend the 2nd Annual Enclavian Slumber Party in the fine city of Boston and gather at the "holy" Fenway Park.

Tuesday, November 28, 2006

-No Time -

I don't have any this week, or so it feels like. Time is precious - and I am very short on it.

I am feeling under the weather a little bit ... just not feeling like myself.

We had hockey last night ... The weather was 45 degrees and raining yesterday - it was EXTRA cold in the arena last night because of the warmer weather outside. BRRRRR ... I had to go and sit in the warming area ... and I don't usually do that.

We have 2 games this weekend ... so it's not gonna be a quiet one. I am hoping the ds's father shows up ... we called him last night to let him know the times ... the ds would be happy to see him.

I just wanted to send a quick shout out to my Enclavian Sistah's ... You are all awesome for the world, and I sincerely treasure you all ...

Monday, November 27, 2006


I have the sniffles & sneezes today ...

Anyhoo .... *sigh* It's another Monday. The weekend was lovely ... I was sad to see my parents leave. I will see them over Christmas though for 10 days, and they will be back down in February I believe ... for the ds's hockey game. I can live with that !

Yesterday was a VERY lazy day. I took the ds to see "Flushed Away". The theatre was packed ... I am not kidding. The movie ranked very low in my opinion ... and I love movies, so my opinion matters!

We then went to the scrapbook store ... where I purchased the stuff to make my holiday cards. Uh ... $75.00 later we left. I knew I should have just gone to the Hallmark store to buy my cards ... would have been A LOT cheaper ... Anyone want me to send you one ? I'm kidding ! I made 7 of them yesterday, and they are all different. I don't know that I want to make all 40 of them ... oh well, lesson learned I guess. Maybe I will do it again, only I will start earlier in the year !

Well ... I have some stuff to do ... adios ...

Friday, November 24, 2006

oh goodness ...

I am tired. I am falling asleep at my desk. What is a girl to do? *sigh*

Well ... I should go take a nap ... but the ds has hockey practice in 2 hours ... and I don't want to be a crab ... there's time to sleep in tomorrow.

I did a little shopping on line today on my lunch ... a couple of Christmas gifts ... and some stuff for me ... I deserve some stuff, right ? LOL !

The day after ...

is a shoppers dream (or my nightmare) ... I like to go shopping, but I can't stand the thought of shopping the day after Thanksgiving. **HUGS TO MELLIE WHO IS IN RETAIL**

I had a wonderful day with my family yesterday. We threw around the football in the backyard ... we had a wonderful meal ... and just spent time together. * I am thankful for my family everyday. *

I hope everyone has a great weekend. I will be back later ...

Wednesday, November 22, 2006

Happy Thanksgiving ...

Warm, wonderful wishes to everyone and their families for a great holiday.

Just another manic ...

Wednesday !

What a long hellish night ... the ds had hockey practice, and I had a lot of housework to get done. Well ... I didn't get much done ... the house is clean and all ... but I wanted to get much more accomplished. Big Deal. I give up. I don't care.

I bought 2 new movies last night ... "You, Me, and Dupree" and "Accepted" ... Both are wicked funny ... I needed that - a few laughs ...

... more later ... I have stuff to do ... ciao!

Tuesday, November 21, 2006

I woke up ...

on the wrong side of the bed. I usually wake up really crabby and today is not that way. I was actually chipper - tired - but in a semi-happy mood.

I went in the bathroom to get ready for work, and cranked up some music. I was a singing fool this morning. I sing EVERY morning but I did it more so today. Today's choice of music was actually Carrie Underwood. Surprising, I know!

I watched Prison Break last night - only 1 more show until the fall finale. I HATE these "fall finale's" ... dumb I tell you. Well, it was still a good episode.

I started a new book last night. Some new Jackie Collins drama-filled smut book. LOL ! So far so good.

Well ... enough for now. I heard your yawns over the speakers on my computer ...

Monday, November 20, 2006

Nada ...

Just another rambling post of nothing.
I'm just sitting here ... on my lunch break. That's it.

So far I have:
  • Balanced my check book

  • Checked out E-Bay
  • Ragged on 'Nifer for being a SW !
  • Sent 4 new emails
  • Sent 1 text message
  • Visited the Enclave

wow. exciting. NOT !

I need a haircut. I haven't cut it in months. I tell myself it's ok to grow it out, let it get long again, but I need a change. BTW, I do this all the time. I say I want a change, but I really don't. I like being able to just throw it up in a half-pony or stick it in a RS hat ... so don't pay any attention.

Sorry for that endless babble ... LOL !
I need a vacation. I want summer back. I want to go here:
Just kidding ... I already live there ! That's a view from my house ... Oh, happy days gone by.

2 hours later ...

and my day still isn't any better ...

Another Monday !

Gawd ... I hate Monday's ... I really do.

I did NOT want to wake up this morning, but I did ... obviously.

The ds came home yesterday - with an attitude! We had a birthday party to go to. It was at the Gymnastics Center at the University ... OMG ! It was so fun. I even took a turn on the obstacle course, whew ... I can understand why the kids were tired.

I am really into this show, Brothers & Sisters, on ABC. Last night's episode, was another great show. I was happy to see things work out in their family (yes, I realize it's not a reality show, but I still get involved in the storyline).

*yawn* I really wish I could go home, climb the stairs, and crawl back into bed under the warm covers. *slaps herself* I can't think like that ... the day has just begun !

Anyone have anything exciting to share ?

** Also, would like to share my happiness with the Patriots beating the Pack ... someone up above has answered my prayers yet again. **

Saturday, November 18, 2006

Surprise !

Happy Saturday !

Novy makes a surpise appearance ... lol !

Hockey went really last night. The ds went with his father for the weekend ... he'll be home in time to go to a friends birthday party. YAY! *Note: take advil beforehand*

I went home, made some soup, watched a little tv, and fell asleep. Sounds super exciting doesn't it? Uh, yeah ... it's not.

I'm still a little tired ... I got some work to get done today, I have busted through a lot already, but it's still early.

Have a great weekend!

Friday, November 17, 2006

WTH ?!?

What is it in the damn turkey that makes me so tired ???

The wonderful company I work for had a catered turkey lunch for us today ... and now I can barely keep my eyes open !

I am too lazy to look it up ...



Hmmmm ... Lately I have been craving banana's ... they are so yummy and they have been perking me up. I have one on my desk leftover from yesterday ... 'Nifer went to the store on lunch and bought some ... so I hope she doesn't mind ... but I am eating this one for breakfast !

Watched my Grey's Anatomy last night. It was good, as usual. No complaints from me today, well, no complaints about the show.

I woke up to the phone ringing at 2:37 this morning. I hate it when people think they can call my damn house any damn time they want. I didn't answer, and it was a PRIVATE CALLER ... they didn't leave a message ... I hate the fact that I have to shut the ringer off on my bedroom phone at night, but ... I'll keep doing it if I have to though. It just ticks me off ... cause now my precious sleep was cut short ...

Good Lawd ... I love reading this site everyday ... it just cracks me up ... The Dugout

Thursday, November 16, 2006

Counting ...


to Thanksgiving.

I am so anxious to have my mom and dad here. I will have to get busy and get the house from comfortably, lived in messy ... to MOM CLEAN ! Nothing out of place ... I think they are bringing Beau dog with ... so the ds will be very happy.

I am still planning to veg out on Saturday. I may go into work for a few hours and then I think 'Nifer is going to bring Honey B over and we'll watch a movie. I told her if she brings the movie, I will make the garlic dip. I have forewarned her that I will be in my jammie pants ... LOL !

Wednesday, November 15, 2006

Shake, shake, shake ...

shake, shake, shake ... shake your booty ... shake your boooooooty ...

HAHA ... This was on the radio on my way into work this morning ... and now it's stuck in my head. Good Lawd ! Everyday it's a new song ... and I sing it all day long.

The ds had hockey pictures last night, and I think they will turn out good. Yesterday was a very taxing day on me, and seeing the cute little kids in their gear, posing for pictures literally brought some tears to my eyes yesterday. Seeing the joy in these kids faces as they were out there, on the ice, waiting their turn with the photographer was pure bliss.

I did it. I bought the Da Vinci Code last night ... but I didn't have time to watch it. I think I am going to wait until Friday or Saturday ... and I'll curl up on the couch downstairs and turn up the surround sound. I am childless this weekend, and it's gonna be all about me ... maybe I'll pamper myself a little bit ... or something ...

Congrats to the Red Sox for their winning bid ... for what ? The right to TALK to Japan's Matsuzaka ... to negotiate a contract with the Red Sox. I am all for it ... it's not my money - well, I suppose it KIND of is ... ya know, all the merchandise and tickets and crap, whatever. I digress. They have 30 days to come to a deal w/ his agen, Scott "Scumbag" Bore-Ass ... uh, sorry - maybe he's a nice guy (not) ... but after the whole Johnny deal and the whispers in his ear and the lies ... well, I don't like him.

As long as the MFY's didn't get him ... then I am as happy as a clam. Even though I hate clams.

Tuesday, November 14, 2006

Slow Down ...

I was going through my archives of funnies ... and this one I saved cause it's so touching. It's not a funny ... it is just one of those emails someone forwarded to me 1 year ago today.

Jack took a long look at his speedometer before slowing down: 73 in a 55zone. Fourth time in as many months. How could a guy get caught so often?

When his car had slowed to 10 miles an hour, Jack pulled over, but only partially. Let the cop worry about the potential traffic hazard. Maybe some other car will tweak his backside with a mirror. The cop was stepping out of his car, the big pad in hand.

Bob? Bob from Church? Jack sunk farther into his trench coat. This was worse than the coming ticket. A cop catching a guy from his own church. A guy who happened to be a little eager to get home after a long day at the office. A guy he was about to play golf with tomorrow.

Jumping out of the car, he approached a man he saw every Sunday, a man he'd never seen in uniform.

"Hi, Bob. Fancy meeting you like this."

"Hello, Jack." No smile.

"Guess you caught me red-handed in a rush to see my wife and kids."

"Yeah, I guess." Bob seemed uncertain Good.

"I've seen some long days at the office lately. I'm afraid I bent the rules a bit - just this once."Jack toed at a pebble on the pavement. "Diane said something about roast beef and potatoes tonight. Know what I mean?"

"I know what you mean. I also know that you have a reputation in our precinct ." Ouch. This was not going in the right direction. Time to change tactics.

"What'd you clock me at?"

"Seventy. Would you sit back in your car please?"

"Now wait a minute here, Bob. I checked as soon as saw you. I was barely nudging 65." The lie seemed to come easier with every ticket.

"Please, Jack, in the car."

Flustered, Jack hunched himself through the still-open door. Slamming it shut, he stared at the dashboard. He was in no rush to open the window. The minutes ticked by. Bob scribbled away on the pad.Why hadn't he asked for a driver's license? Whatever the reason, it would be a month of Sundays before Jack ever sat near this cop again.

A tap on the door jerked his head to the left. There was Bob, a folded paper in hand. Jack rolled down the window a mere two inches, just enough room for Bob to pass him the slip. "Thanks." Jack could not quite keep the sneer out of his voice.

Bob returned to his police car without a word. Jack watched his retreat inthe mirror. Jack unfolded the sheet of paper. How much was this one going to cost?

Wait a minute. What was this? Some kind of joke? Certainly not a ticket. Jack began to read:

"Dear Jack,

Once upon a time I had a daughter. She was six when killed by a car. You guessed it- a speeding driver. A fine and three months in jail,and the man was free. Free to hug his daughters, all three of them. I only had one, and I'm going to have to wait until Heaven before I can ever hug her again.

A thousand times I've tried to forgive that man. A thousand times Ithought I had. Maybe I did, but I need to do it again. Even now. Pray for me. And be careful, Jack, my son is all I have left.

Bob "

Jack turned around in time to see Bob's car pull away and head down the road. Jack watched until it disappeared. A full 15 minutes later, he too, pulled away and drove slowly home, praying for forgiveness and hugging asurprised wife and kids when he arrived.

E-Rod ...

another wonderful MFY funny ... courtesy of my dearest friend ... JTT ...

A chill in the air ...

Happy Monday !


The weekend was much too short. Instead of having1 friend stay over this weekend, the ds had 2. Everyone had a nice time ... they played ALOT of PS2 ... All boys are hockey players, so they were chatting about that and I set up the net in the driveway so they were shooting all morning.

I have not yet watched The DaVinci Code, and it comes out on DVD tomorrow. I am going to buy it, and hope it's good. Anyone seen it ?

Ugh ... I tried to avoid football yesterday. I did see that the Green Gay Packers beat the Vikings though ... most unfortunate. I don't know what it is, but I do NOT like the damn packers ... yuck.

Well ... I have a lot to get done ... but I will be back ... I am kind of spacey today ... so I just don't know how to express myself this morning.

Friday, November 10, 2006

WTF !!??!!??!!

What the hell !!! I don't think this is real ... but it very well could be ... ... ... thanks JTT for posting this in the Enclave ...
I ... uh ... don't think I will be giving this gift this holiday season ....

Another day ...

... another post.

First and foremost ... HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE !

We are in for 4-7 inches of snow through tomorrow. YIKES !! I'm not ready for this yet. You would think I would be ... coming from Northern Minnesota and all ... but ... yuck. Winter is NOT my favorite season ... it's my least favorite to be completely honest with you.

I did a little bit of on-line shopping yesterday. I got my dad some clothes from Cabella's and my mom ... well ... I'm not gonna say ... but it's something BEAUTIFUL. She will love it.

I am going to do some scrapbook shopping today for some holiday paper ... I want to be ready ... My mother asked for me to bring some stuff home so we can scrap over Christmas. She would like to learn, so I'm going to buy some paper I think she will enjoy ...

So ... today I will shop a little more on my lunch break ... I thought of a few more gifts I would like to buy. I am trying to avoid the mall this holiday shopping season AT ALL COSTS !

The ds is having a sleep-over at the house this weekend ... Better stock of on Advil !

Anything exciting for anyone else this weekend ?

Thirsty Thursday ...

When I was younger ... Thirsty Thursdays were my favorite day of the week. Wow, what growing up does to you, now it's just another day of the week. One day closer to the (non) wild weekend.

Gee ... last night I watched the "fall finale" of LOST. How dumb is that? I don't want to have to wait until friggin February to watch another episode. URGH !

Oh ... and I believe my folks are coming for Thanksgiving. That will be nice ... I wonder if they will bring me a tree ? I had an artificial one last year, and I didn't like it, but then again, I'm going home for Christmas so maybe I should just use the fake one again. *sigh* At least I will have real trees at my mom's.

Growing up in Minnesota was awesome. Seriously. I didn't drive until I was 17 - I didn't need to. I had a snowmobile to drive around to get me to work during the winter and a 4-wheeler to use in the summer, spring, and fall. I kid you not, I would WALK to a friends house in -40 degree weather, because I didn't want to stay home ... and wanted to hang out ... and then I would convince my dad to come and pick me up somehow ... LOL ...

The weather is grand today - we will be in the 70's - and then we are in for 4-7 inches of snow on Friday sometime ... tis the hockey season you know!

I also wanted to let my EB's know ... that I have been "reliving" our Enclavian Red Sox Game ... and watching the tape. Wow ... that reallly was a long game ...

Well ... happy wishes for a wonderful day ...

Teddy Bears ...

They Met in a Bar ...

A woman meets a man in a bar. They talk; they connect; they end up leaving together to his place.

The man shows her around his apartment, she notices that one wall of his bedroom is completely filled with soft, sweet, cuddly teddy bears. There are three shelves in the bedroom, with hundreds and hundreds of cute, cuddly teddy bears, carefully placed in rows covering the entire wall! It was obvious that he had taken quite some time to lovingly arrange them and she was immediately touched by the amount of thought he had put into organizing the display. There were small bears all along the bottom shelf, medium-sized bears covering the length of the middle shelf, and huge, enormous bears running all the way along the top shelf. She found it strange for an obviously masculine guy to have such a large a collection of Teddy Bears but doesn't mention this to him and actually is quite impressed by his sensitive side.

They share a bottle of wine and continue talking and, after a while, She finds herself thinking,

"Oh my God! Maybe, this guy could be the one! Maybe he could be the future father of my children?"

She turns to him and kisses him lightly on the lips. He responds warmly. They continue to kiss, the passion builds, and he romantically lifts her in his arms and carries her into his bedroom where they rip off each other's clothes and make hot, steamy love. She is so overwhelmed that she responds with more passion, more creativity, and more heat than she has ever known.

After an intense, explosive night of raw passion with this sensitive guy, they are lying there together in the afterglow. The woman rolls over, gently strokes his chest and asks coyly,

"Well, how was it?"

The guy gently smiles at her, strokes her cheek, looks deeply into her eyes, and says,

"Help yourself to anything on the second row."

- To my friends ...

... whomever you may be !

A little of this ...

and a little of that.


It's gonna be a long day.

I came into work early today and we have hockey tonight, so who knows when I will get home.

I have some errands to run after hockey, I suppose I could do them DURING practice, but I prefer to be there to watch. What if something happened to me driving in rush hour traffic, and the ds was done with practice, waiting for me? It's just better to wait there. I keep my MP3 player in my purse so I can zone out on the game and listen to some good tunes.

The ds is having a friend sleepover this weekend. He needed to make sure his room was clean last night ... and he did an excellent job. I was very proud. So, if he keeps it that way until Friday, I will put the PS2 in his room. It beats having the kids playing video games in my room ... then I can have some peace !

OOOH ... and I watched Prison Break on FOX last night ... it was awesome ... you can't trust anyone apparently.

... Wishing everyone a wonderful day ... the weather is great here today, so that's got me in a smiling mood ... (for now)

Monday, November 06, 2006


Seriously ... I'm not joking ... This has made my day ...

The NEW NYY logo ...

Ass Wipes !

LOVIN IT ! Thanks to my dear friend JTT ...

Happy Monday!

Good Morning, Good Morning ! It's a beautiful day ...

The weekend went by so fast. It was very nice - relaxing - quiet.

The ds had hockey on Saturday. It went really well, I was proud of how hard he was working out there.

We went out for lunch on Saturday. Nothing fancy - I just didn't feel like cooking. When do I ever? We just hung out and had a quiet day. We each read a book and just chilled.

Sunday we went to see The Santa Clause III ... what a cute movie this is! It helped me get a little excited for the upcoming holiday season. This will pass I am sure, but I hope it stays. It's been rough these past couple of Christmas's ... I just haven't been enjoying the decorating or baking. I have so much other stuff going on that it is more of a nuisance than anything. I have been giving myself the pep talk ... hopefully this year will be different.

The Christmas shopping has taken it's toll on me as well. I hate the other shoppers. Last year I actually yelled at a woman that is was because of her rudeness that I hate the holidays. I felt like I was falling off the deep end. So, this year, I vow to do as much online or catalog shopping as humanly possible.

Friday, November 03, 2006

Once again ...

I have made it to Friday.

I just want to say a couple of quick things.

To my current (and as of 2:00 today will be FORMER) co-worker - GEGEN-MONSTER: I wish you all the happiness I can offer. It was honestly a joy to get to work with you, and loan you out movies ... and you never know, Punch Drunk Love may just magically appear on your door step. If you ever have a movie request, you know my email address!

To my Enclavian Sistah Mellie ... HAVE A SAFE TRIP ! Have a good time, enjoy every moment. We'll talk to you when you get back ...

And ... finally ... to my new co-worker DuF ... pleasure having you aboard !

Thursday, November 02, 2006

Happy Birthday Belle !

Hope you have a great birthday ...

Your Enclavian Sisters are thinking of you ... wish we were partying with you ...

Busy, busy, busy ...

as a bee ...


Today I have so much to do. I have a 4 hour training this morning ... and it has me feeling a little overwhelmed. However, I keep telling myself " I am Novy, I can accomplish anything because I am strong enough to push through and stand tall. I have the confidence it takes to tackle this new project ..." ok ... LOL ... I think if I really say that I will start to laugh ... but, it was a good pep talk!

Tonight we have hockey again ... and I'm going to miss Ugly Betty ! I will just make it home in time to watch Grey's Anatomy which is a MUST SEE !! Can't. Miss. One. Second.

Ugh ... I have this back pain today ... so I am running on about 3 hours of sleep. No matter how I lay, I was in pain. So, nothing is in my favor today. :(

- sweet -

tear jerkingly so ...

I have received this email a few times in the past couple years, and it always makes me misty eyed, as I am such a romantic at heart. LOL!

A girl asked a guy if he thought she was pretty, He

She asked him if he would want to be with her forever...and he said no.

She then asked him if she were to leave would he cry, and once again he replied with a no.

She had heard enough. As she walked away, tears streaming down her face the boy grabbed her arm and said...

You're not pretty you're beautiful.

I don't want to be with you forever, I NEED to be with you forever.

And I wouldn't cry if you walked away...I'd die...

Chilly ...


I tood the ds trick or treating last night ... and boy, was it cold ! We went for about 2 hours and I couldn't take anymore, so we went out for dinner. We both had a cup of hot chocolate and it hurt my teeth I was so cold.

Ah, but the ds got a ton of candy I will probably end up throwing away because he will forget about it or get tired of it for a while. Thank goodness. There is a local dentist who pays you for your halloween candy by the pound ... I should do that!

Well, 'Nifer is off to ol Mississippi ... if she drove straight through, she would be there by now, but I haven't heard from her yet. I hope she stopped for a couple hours of sleep though, that's a long haul when you are driving by yourself.

I am lost right now. My friend Mel said it best when she asked "Is it baseball season yet?" ... I'm ready ... I want it back. I need something to focus on.

Tuesday, October 31, 2006

Happy Birthday Cowboy !

Happy Birthday ... I'm thinking of you !

= Mississippi =

Just wanted to take a minute to wish my good friend, 'Nifer, a safe trip to Mississippi ...

She is taking the trip down to see her baby bro and family ... and I just want her to know I am thinking of her ...

BE CAREFUL ... Call when you get there ...

(i'm such a mom)

Happy Halloween !

Happy Halloween !!
I love halloween ... well, when I was a kid I did. Now, I wonder who in their right mind came up with such a holiday. I mean, parents buy costumes for their kids, and strangers buy $40.00+ dollars worth of candy to give to little brats that come and ring their doorbell all night? WHAT? Eh ... maybe I am just a scrooge ... we are going trick-or-treating tonight so the ds can fill up on junk ... and then we will stop for dinner.
I dressed up today. Really ... I did. I have on jeans and a sweatshirt w/ my Red Sox (w/ the socks) hat. So, now, imagine you come up to me and ask me what I am supposed to be. I would show you a baseball (that has the beloved RS logo on it) and a handheld fan ... LOL !
Anyone else dress up today ? I only did it so I could wear my hat ...

Monday, October 30, 2006

nada ...

I got nuttin.

Today, 20 years ago, the 100th episode of CHEERS aired ...

and uh ... the ds has hockey tonight ... for like 3 hours or something ... YIKES ...

and ... what else ... i have a big headache ...

Busy, busy, busy ...

Wow, what a weekend ... it was a busy one.

Friday, of course, I went scrapbooking with some scrappin friends. It was fun ... I didn't get a ton done, I was more interested in watching others and shopping. I did get a couple of pages done, so I can't complain.

Saturday I slept in ... It felt awesome for the world. I woke up, and got busy cleaning in the ds's room. It looks great - I hung up some more pictures and moved around some furniture. I was quite relived to have gotten so much done.

Sunday. DRAMA! No, not really, but it felt like it. LOL !

I took the ds to the movie theatre, we saw "The Guardian" with Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher. It was really good, a tear jerker. I can't wait to buy it.

I called my friend Jerry to wish him a happy birthday. He didn't sound like himself, so I inquired, and he was going to break up with his girlfriend. I feel bad for him, and I have never met her, but he didn't seem happy. We just want him to be happy cause he's such a great guy.

The ds lost a tooth last night. He came to show me and then he dropped it on the floor, it took 15 minutes to find it. He then went to go and clean it up for the tooth fairy, and proceeded to drop it down the drain. I had him write a letter to the Tooth Fairy, and he didn't think it would work, but it did. He told the TF where it was and the TF left him $5.00 ! For Real ! $5.00 !!! When I was a kid I got like $1.00 ... kids are spoiled these days.

I am ticked about the World Series. I have nothing left to say on the matter, except that it sucks, but the better team won.

... I lead a boring life ... really ...

Friday, October 27, 2006

Sleep Deprived ...

Good Morning. Once again, it's Friday.

I fell asleep with the TV on last night, watching the disastrous Tigers game last night. So, anyway, I wake up at 5:59 (well, it was really 5:29 cause I keep my clock 30 minutes fast in my bedroom) to hear the news people say "At 2:00am, set your clock back an hour". I am thinking, wow, I get another hour of sleep now, and then I thought - no, you do that on Saturday. So, I was all confused and had to call my mom and find out what day it was!

So, tonight I am off to scrapbook. It's a potluck night at the scrapbook store I am going to, along with a potluck at work. I am going to work on some more of my Fenway pictures, but need to buy more baseball themed paper. I am excited to finish up this book.

Have a good day ...

- Ragging -


So, I am sitting here at work ... it's friggin cold out ... and it's my birthday.

So, what does my friend 'Nifer do? Calls me a spoiled, pampered princess!
Gee Whiz ! Just cause I make her sing to me all day does NOT make me a princess ... (even though I am) I can't help that I am a demanding person ... and spoiled ... I'm an only child ... blame it on my parents !
And ... AND ... Conway Twitty agrees with her ...

Quote of the day ...


I don't know who Jeanne-Marie Roland is ... but I like what she has to say:

"The more I see of men, the more I admire dogs."


Happy Birthday !

Cumpleaños felices !


Joyeux Anniversaire !

Glad Fødselsdag


Glücklicher Geburtstag !

Compleanno felice !

С днем рождения

Well, it's my birthday today ... that's all I got to say !

Wednesday, October 25, 2006

- Hump Day -

Woo Hoo ! It' s Wednesday !

Well, last night, I brought the ds back to hockey - we are going to be trying out the Goalie equipment the first part of the season. The coach thinks the ds would be a good fit, he tried it last year and seemed to enjoy it. I'm game.

I got a package in the mail from my Dad and Step-Mom yesterday. In this large package, were some of the things I bought on the Cape this August. I love to go shopping when I am there, so I know I can get whatever I want because they'll ship it home for me.

I forgot what I had bought even. I had gotten some kitchen glasses, that match the ones I already have, and I can't find them anymore - so I got 4 extra's. I picked up some small glass baskets, small decorative planter, Red Sox History book, scrapbooking paper, scented wax that I can only find at A.C. Moore - I'm rather particular. I had bought some clothes for the ds and some stained glass things for gifts. It was like Christmas.

Included was a copy of the picture of me from the Red Sox / MFY game that was on the BDD site and then the tape of the game I attended. I started watching it last night, searching center field for a glimpse of myself or my Enclavian friends. It's funny, watching it, because I saw it live, but it's a different view of the game. I was out in the field, behind my former beloved, so I got to watch his face, rather than his butt. Also, seeing Coco's face dive was different from the front than from behind ... it looked like he didn't get up because he was embarrassed that he missed the catch for the out, rather than possible injury ... but what do I know.

So, I am only into the start of the 3rd inning, and it's rough to relive this game, but I am gonna watch it, just in hopes of a glimpse of my friends or I.

Oh - - time to go ...

Tuesday, October 24, 2006


Well, it started ... hockey season has begun. We started last night - it was nice to be back in the chilling arena.

I am taking the ds again tonight, to tryout for the next level. He needs to be pushed and needs more training and practice on the game itself, not just skating. The kids need more than what they are getting ... but ... it's gonna cost me, and a pretty penny at that. I am gonna have to fork out a couple hundred bucks if they take him ... and donate 20-30 hours of my time throughout the season.

Jebus. Maybe I should try and convince the ds to play basketball instead.

Well ... have a nice Tuesday - I'll be back later ... I just have so much to do ...

Monday, October 23, 2006


Ugh. I hate Monday's.

This morning it was so dark when I woke up, I thought I forgot to change the clocks, but that's next weekend. I had to check.

I was so busy this weekend! I bought some new shelving units as I was overwhelmed w/ the DVD's all over the living room - and I bought the ds a new tv stand, so I had to put everything together - I even got out the cordless drill !

Good Job Tigers ! Tied up the series ... WAY TO GO ! Let's take the next 3 in St. Louis ! Please ...

Well, I have a ton to do this morning ... and I today the ds starts his 3rd year of hockey ... So, back to hockey mom mode I go.

Friday, October 20, 2006

- email -

People keep sending me emails today ... at work ... and it's ticking me off !



I'm a Tiger today ... ROAR !

sorry - i'm tired ... and i'm being petty ...

and i needed to vent that out ... cause 'Nifer wasn't at her desk !

Pardon the interuption - back as you were people.

Happy Friday ... ? ...

Well, once again I made it to Friday.

Damn those stupid Cardinals ... but at least it's a Midwestern Series ... I still would have preferred the Mets ... but it's out of my control.

I didn't really get to watch much of the game last night ... I would flip back and forth between either Ugly Betty and the game or Grey's Anatomy and the game.

I am a little pissed at McDreamy right now ... F*^% him ... he better be making things right ... well, I haven't even seen next week's show obviously ... but just the sneak peek pissed me off ...


.... sigh .... I need a nap ...

So ... have a good day ... I have a meeting in 28 minutes ... as spoken by Ah-nold: "I'll be back."

Thursday, October 19, 2006

Lots of laughs ...

So ... as I have previously mentioned ... I have about 400 DVD's ... I am a movie junkie ...

I keep a list of them on a spreadsheet, in alphabetical order.

My friends will ask for the list, and then borrow a couple of movies ... whatever. That's fine. Why spend the money, when I have the movie, and am not watching it, right?

So, I had just boughten The Lake House a couple weeks ago. I only had it a few days before my friend Remy asked to borrow it. LOL ... this is where it gets funny. I was in no hurry to get it back, I watched it already. Well, I told her that there would be late charges for not watching it because her husband wanted to see it too, and they were short on time.

On 10/13/06, while I was scrapping, her husband calls my cell phone. So I explained to him that it would be a dollar a day for each day they had the movie ... (a girls gotta make a living, right?) Hahaha ...

Two weeks was how long they had it ... (remember, this does not bother me, but I think it's funny cause her husband was ragging me.) So, today, I sent the Docmeister a bill for $10.00. It is for late fee's.

He's gonna be like "WTF?" HAHAHA !! I told my friend Remy what I was doing and she thinks it's hilarious ...

I even included a remittance stub!

I expect another phone call, only this time regarding his bill from Novy's Movie Rentals !!!!

Thursday Morning News by Novy ...

Well, last night, 10/18/06, the Mets beat out the Cardinals 4-2. The NY Mets force the Cardinals to a duel, winner-takes-all match up to compete for the NLCS title. I, along with all of Detroit, and all other baseball fans are eagerly awaiting the news of who will be facing off against the Tigers in the 'ship.

LOST - What the hell is up with this show? It takes so many twists and turns, but I am still intrigued by it ... and the ds loved seeing th polar bear again.

Nothing on the agenda today ... It's just a plain old Thursday, and I am stuck wearing G.D. pantyhose ... I haven't decided who invented them ... the Devil or George Steinbrenner.

Have a great day ...

Wednesday, October 18, 2006

... Yawn ...

Ugh, I am tired today ... I keep trying to laugh and stay upbeat ... so I won't fall asleep.

Hey, did I just rhyme? LOL !

Dude, seriously ... I totally forgot that LOST is on tonight ... It's Wednesday! So, I guess I will be staying up until at least 9:00 ... The ds will be so excited ...

Today's song of the day seems to be Smoke on the water ... I can't stop it ... It just is FORCING itself outta my vocal cords ...

... Yawn ...

I keep telling myself I would like to have a "word of the day" thing going on ... Like I have to pick a word in the morning, and use it in a real, honest to goodness sentence sometime throughout the day. I really need to broaden my horizons.

I am NOT starting this today ... too lazy.

Another day ...

Good Morning !

I know, I know, I am making a late appearance today, but I needed to sleep in a bit this morning. I didn’t get home until 9:00 last night – and I had left for work at 6:00 am – so I was gone for what, 15 hours yesterday ? It was a long day.

Conferences went good. My ds’s teacher likes me, so my conference was 1 hour and 40 minutes. She likes to thank me for all that I do for his education and knows that it isn’t easy being a single mom. Sometimes I need to be told that I am doing an OK job … I work full time, and can’t always be the mom that volunteers for everything, but I do what I can.

I did end up buying The Break-Up yesterday. I didn’t get to watch it yet, cause we got home so late, and Boston Legal was on, but I fell asleep! *sigh*

So, I see that the Cardinals won last night. I don’t really know how I feel about that. I guess I want the Mets to go to the World Series, but then again, I hate the National League, so I don’t care. … … … Wait for it … … … *sigh*

So … that’s it in a nutshell today.

I would like to send warm fuzzy feelings out to my friend JTT … I am thinking of you today !

G.D. Christmas Songs !!!!

Someone here at work was singing Deck the halls w/ boughs of holly ... fa la la la la ... lalalala ...


Don't they know that if they start singing a song ... I too will start singing it ... and it will be stuck in my head ... for the rest of the day ... ???????????


PH ? !!! ? Who, me ???

I would just like to quickly note, that my "dear" friend 'Nifer calls me the PH ... for the Pouch Hater. (inside joke)

WELL, today ... this dear friend of mine broke the stem off of her pumpkin that Swampy brought her.


Pumpkin Hater !

Cape Cod ...

I was looking through the old photobucket today and came across some of the pictures I took in 2005, when I took the ds to Cape Cod. We went on a whale watch, and below is some of what we saw ...

It was a nice vacation ... I love the Cape.

A Shout Out to Mellie!

Mellie - You are a superb friend ... I just adore you ...

So, this, dearest Mel, is for you ....

and a little bit of ...

And let us not forget one of your favorite moments ...

small note of thanks to whomever I "borrowed" these pictures from ... I appreciate it ... but I think I got them from a friend, of a friend, of a cousin, of a friend's brother ...
