RIP Pillsbury Doughboy

The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and complications
from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 73. Doughboy was buried in a lightly
greased coffin.

Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects at his funeral, including Mrs Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies. Captain Crunch sent his apologies. The gravesite was piled high with flours.

Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy in the graveyard and lovingly described
Doughboy as a man who did not realize how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose
quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was
not considered a very ‘smart’ cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked
schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still, even as a crusty old
man, was considered a roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife, Playa Dough; two children, John Dough and Jane Dough; plus they have one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly
father, Pop Tart. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

The American Cancer Society's most recent estimates for breast cancer in the United States are for 2010:

  • About 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.
  • About 54,010 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
  • About 39,840 women will die from breast cancer
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. The chance of developing invasive breast cancer at some time in a woman's life is a little less than 1 in 8
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, exceeded only by lung cancer. The chance that breast cancer will be responsible for a woman's death is about 1 in 35
Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1990, with larger decreases in women younger than 50. These decreases are believed to be the result of earlier detection through screening and increased awareness, as well as improved treatment

At this time there are over 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States

(my mom lost her battle with breast cancer in 1998)

If Roses grow in Heaven
Lord, please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my Mother's arms
and tell her they're from me.

Tell her that I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.

Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there's an ache within my heart
that will never go away.

I wish that I could....

Get a good nights rest. I have not slept through the night since the day my oldest was told he was going to Iraq. Every single night I toss and turn, every single night I wake up with feelings of anxiety, every single night I wish Id wake up to find that its all been a bad dream, and life is all peachy and wonderful....YEAH RIGHT!!! I cant remember the last time life was peachy and wonderful. As you know from my last post , I not only have this going on with my son, but I also have family living with me and its really a struggle, it puts alot of stress on me, and my loved ones. We now have extra mouths to feed, and extra electricity and water usage to pay for, we now have no quiet alone time, and we now feel like we have to leave our own home every chance we get just to get some peace of mind. Its truly not been a good experience. Its funny how you think you know someone...UNTIL YOU LIVE WITH THEM!!!! Suddenly everything you thought they were turns out to be the exact opposite. At any rate Im still alive..still kickin...and still looking forward to the time when I get my home back..and I finally get a good nights rest!!!

hello again

I know its been awhile since my last post and I know Ive lost alot of followers, and I've missed out on alot of the happenings in all of your lives. I apologize for that. Life has thrown me some major curve balls lately and well I have found myself lost....Im almost scared to write here for fear someone in my life might read it and take offense, but then again it is MY blog and it is for me to write about MY thoughts and MY feelings...right????? But I also dont like to cause problems with anyone so once again I find myself not feeling like I have the freedom to just vent!!! Im just curious though, has anyone out there ever let a family member or members move in with them??? If so how did it go??? Did you survive it? After they moved out were you still on talking terms??? We have house guest and well its ALOT different then what you think its going to be like, and you truly do see another side to people and sometimes its not such a good side. Along with us dealing with house guest, we also have been dealing with the fact my oldest Kody, who is the National Guard just found out he was chosen to go from his unit to another one that is heading over to Iraq in January. We thought he was safe as he is still in college and his unit is a new unit, what we didnt know is that you are only safe the first 2 years of college, and that if you score the highest on everything they can pull you from your unit and put you in a different one, and thats what has happened. Im not taking this news very well, Im actually falling apart. My boys are my world, and it is just too hard for me to accept the fact hes going to be sooooo far away and for a year!!! Im so used to daily phone calls, and him showing up for the week-end or going to spend the day with him on my day off, I just cant think about going a year without seeing that smile, and feeling his bear hugs, having him here to raid the cupboard for food, or calling me up asking me to listen to his paper he wrote for class. I know he's doing something good an it is for all of us, but my heart is aching so much and it is killing me inside thinking about being so far from him. I feel like I wont be complete again until he returns. I cant even make it though this post without crying my eyes out. And yet I know that I have to dig deep down inside and try to find the strength to get though this, and I feel like all my strength is gone. I pray that I will survive this and most importantly that Kody will come back home safe and sound, I know I have a couple moths before he goes although most of it he will be in Texas for training, I pray the next year will go by fast, and that we will find a way to be in touch with each other often. When he was asked by someone if he was scared to go, he said he was more scared to tell his mom he had to go, just that let me know just how much my son truly loves me. He's my rock, my heart and soul and we will truly need your prayers to get though this next year!!!

Mom, why are you crying?" he asked his mom.

"Because I'm a woman" she told him.

"I don't understand," he said.

His mom just hugged him and said, "and you never will." Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?"

"All women cry for no reason" was all his dad could say.

The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.

Finally he put in a call to GOD. When GOD got on the phone the man said, "GOD, why do women cry so easily?"

GOD said:

"When I made women she had to be special. I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world; yet, gentle enough to give comfort.

I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children.

I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining.

I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly. This same sensitivity helps her to make a child's boo-boo feel better and shares in her teenagers anxieties and fears.

I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.

I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him falteringly.

I gave her a tear to shed, it's hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed. It's her only weakness; it's a tear for mankind."

Hey girls…..Finally a good explanation….

With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much
information and
wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room,
it distributes out
to the rest of our bodies. So we aren’t heavy,
we are enormously cultured,
educated and happy.

Beginning today,
when I look at my butt in the mirror
I will think,
Good grief,
just look how smart and happy I am!

Random Thoughts for the Day . . .

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

(I dont have anything on mine that Id need to worry about but I have no doubt that some people would die if others knew what they've been doing)

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

(I bet this has happened to everyone at least once, although I will say I try really hard not to argue unless I know Im right!! )

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

(No doubt, because now there are days Id do anything just to be able to lay down for a bit in the middle of the day)

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

(enough said)

5. How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

(I have no idea....thats why as soon as I wash them I put them back on the beds)

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

(Maybe not..but I will say I tend to write in cursive more often then print because I think its faster)

7. Mapquest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

(I so agree with this one)

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

(yep I agree with this too, is that ad of me? It kinda is I think but I can't help wondering what happened to the person)

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

(again....enough said)

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

(without a doubt , especially if its someone else's story)

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

(I do child care at home....this doesnt really apply to me)

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blu Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection...again.

(I agree, we just started a blu-ray collection and I said the same thing....please dont go changing things on me AGAIN!!)

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

(yep...I sit and think hmmmmm what did I change??? )

14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this -- ever.

15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Darn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

(this has happened to probably everyone, this or we are texting and I decide to call and you dont answer...Im thinking what the hell just happened to you????)

16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day...

What a waste!

(happens to me all the time...I work at home and I always look good..week-end comes and we are going out and I cant get my damn hair to do a thing!!)

17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

(yes its true!)

18. My 4-year old son asked me in the car the other day "Dad what would happen if you ran over a ninja?" How the heck do I respond to that?

(hmmmmm, Id said what do you think would happen??)

19. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

(I agree)

20. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night, more kisses begin with Miller Lite than with Kay.

(hehe sad but I bet its true!)

I received these in an email and I laughed my butt off....because as Im sure you did when you read them there was a few I totally could relate to..and totally have pondered over myself!

Hope that all is going great for everyone..I know Im still not getting to my blogging on a regular basis like I said I was going to....its been busy around here. And lately we've had some very stressful things going on that kind of just make you feel like you just cant think anymore...ever have those kind of days??? Well I think we've had more than our share of them in the last couple of weeks. But as with everything this too shall pass and I hope when it does life can just go back to normal...whatever that is?!?!


Are you the kind of friend that you would want to have as a friend?

Rude people suck!

This post is just for me to have a moment to blow off some steam so to speak! I feel that a blog is something just allows each person to write about what is on their mind. I place where we can voice our opinion about something, or write about whats happening in our lives, some times even a place to express our talents like poetry. Sometimes we enjoy maybe even look forward to what our readers have to say. Enjoy the controversy that can rise from difference of opinions. But the one thing I do not understand is why some people find it necessary to be just plain rude! I wrote a blog about something that was on my mind you can read it here I had someone that felt the need to leave three comments telling me I'm an idiot because of my view on this, I didn't publish their comment that's my right not to, they had nothing more to say then just that, and wanted to get their point across so they left it three times for me. When I write about something and give my point of view or my opinion about a certain subject I don't expect everyone to agree with me. But it is very unnecessary to leave comments telling someone they are an idiot for believing in what they believe in. I have read other peoples blogs and I have seen where some people will leave the most horrible comments and I always wonder why? Why are there people that just feel the need to be rude, why if you don't agree with what someone writes on their own blog cant you either leave a comment of what your opinion is about it or just move on. Does it make a rude person feel better if they are able to leave a bit of their rudeness behind for the rest of us? I don't know what their reasoning Align Centeris but one thing I do know is......RUDE PEOPLE SUCK!!!

The news haunts me

Lately it seems that the news I see on tv haunts me all day and night. Like this one I saw last night, a pediatrician molested 103 children during Dr. visits!! If you haven't heard about this you can click here to read about it and even see a picture of this man!! This has been on my mind so much it just really upsets me and once again makes me wonder what is happening to the people in this world. Why does it seem like it is becoming harder and harder for us to know who we can trust. And what makes it even worse is when there are reports made and investigations that are supposed to be done and yet people like this don't get punished, which was the case with this man. Well now he's been caught and they have 13 hours of video of him doing what he did to these innocent children so now he had better pay the price for this, and I hope and pray I never read or hear about the day that this man is walking freely among us again!!
It also made me think when I heard about this where were the parents that took the kids to the doctor?? I dont know the details about how the doc got the kids away from the parent to have time to do this but I know that when my children were little and went for visits no way did they spend time alone with the doctor without me and I think this should be a wake up call to parents all over the world. There should be no reason that a doctor has to examine your child without you being present...after all its nothing we haven't seen before!
I really look forward to those days when I click on the news and I read about the GOOD people in this world because its really scary knowing we live among monsters like this!

my struggle

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone that left comments and emails to encourage me in not giving up with trying to lose all this extra weight Ive been carrying around. It does help when you hear words of encouragement and or even when someone tells you about their success with the same issue. Josh and I have decided to get serious about doing the EA active on the wii at least until the weather gets nicer and we can get out and start walking and bike riding. So maybe one day this wont be my one of my struggles!!
FatWomenTryingtogetpantson.jpg image by scudzilla69

Now this brings me to a thought that I sometimes have. Back in the early 1800s the average woman looked like this:

and that was considered attractive to men, for a woman to have extra weight on her body meant that she was of good health. Then in the early 19oo's the full-figured female body was replaced by the ultra-thin body, our country saw an increase in eating disorders and a preoccupation with obesity. Some women internalize our society's thinness ideal and when they can not measure up to the ridiculous standards set for the female body, they often develop a negative body image. Negative body images can lead some individuals into unhealthy eating patterns and eating disorders. When I was a teenager I was one of those girls I starved myself so that I felt like I was skinny and fit into what was accepted even though I was in NO WAY even considered to be fat at all,I even landed myself in the hospital with a feeding tube so that I could get my strength back. As I was so weak I couldnt even walk. I am past those days and would never do anything like that now, but I do struggle with my weight gain and it does get the best of me. I dont have a desire to be like some skinny super model I just want to be back to the point where I feel comfortable in my own skin again. Where I can walk up and down my stairs in my house and not feel winded. Where I can put on my clothes and actually feel like I look good and not be worrying about how to try to hide the fat rolls.
For now keep your words of encouragement coming and keep sharing your stories with me and one day I will have my own weight loss success story to share with you!

Im FAT!!!!!

I know that its normal for most people to put on some weight during the winter months but I honestly feel like Ive packed on so much weight that I feel like when I was nine months pregnant (AND NO IM NOT PREGNANT) but I do have that fear that one day someone will ask me that question and man would I just die! I get so upset with this. I honestly don't over eat, and I drink lots of water, I know I need to get more physical I got the wii ea active and man is it a work out but I talk myself out of doing it all the time and that's not good at all. And now I just simply feel very down and depressed about my weight I honestly no longer feel comfortable in my skin! Josh said once it warms up that he will get out and walk with me and we can ride our bikes Im just afraid by the time it gets warmer out I will be even more out of shape. I have a fear of stopping for a break every few minutes because Im out of breath

or looking like this on a bike

and then summer will be here and it will be time to go soak up the sun in the back yard and Im afraid of the exposing the neighbors to this!

UGGGG its truly time I do something about this or this is all Im going to find to fit into!!! And I dont know about you but its just not my style!

Something on my mind

So the other day I was listening to the news on tv as I was washing the dishes and I heard them talking about a boy that had shot and killed his fathers pregnant girl friend and how he was going to be held on two counts of murder, one for the death of the girl friend and one for the unborn baby. This got me to thinking, how is it that if someone kills a pregnant woman that it is possible for them to be charged with TWO counts of murder and yet there are woman every day,approximately 3,700 everyday in the USA alone, that go and have abortions which in my estimation is the same as killing an unborn baby. I do not understand this!!
Can anyone help me to make sense of this????
I realize that this is one of those subjects that is very touchy with some people...but I will not apologize for my own feelings. I just do not believe in abortion and when I heard about this case it just made me stop and wonder how the laws can change for the situations and yet they both are basically the same crime.

Im just curious is anyone else getting comments from people they dont know in a language you dont speak (or in this case read)? I get at least 3 or 4 a day and its driving me crazy!!!!! Some of them I can read and they are advertisements for some kind of scam, others will have a bunch of symbols with once in awhile a word in english and the word is usually something to do with sex...Im just curious if this kind of thing is happening to anyone else out there and if you know how you get it to stop!! I just reject the comments and dont let them be published but I wasnt sure if there was something that can be done to get them to stop all together....if anyone has an idea on what can be done about this PLEASE let me know!!!

A thought for you

thoughtpod964dayquote.jpg thought for the day image by sissytanya_1905


I just have to share with everyone that I am still feeling good. I take my vitamins religiously and I think that plays a big part in why I didnt get the sickies that Josh, Devin and my babysitting kids all had and I was exposed to over and over again! So here's my little piece of good advice Im throwing out there for all of you...TAKE YOUR VITAMINS!!!!

Im not a doctor and I dont play one on tv but I do truly think that by making sure that your body gets the vitamins it needs that it really does do your body good. Im not one that goes and gets the flue shot...actually Ive never had one. I just take my vitamins and I seem to be just fine. Ive always been around kids I used to actually work at a day care where I was subjected to all kinds of things and I never missed a day because I was sick!

There you go..that was my one piece of advise for you...oh and another little piece of advice...dont do this to your self ..its just WRONG!!!!

Somebody help me!!!

Both Devin and Josh are sick, Devin has been sick since Sunday and is finally feeling alot better and will probably return to school tomorrow. But now Josh is sick!!! He got sick during the night and ran a super high fever, which made it hard for either of us to get any sleep. So now Ive been exposed to whatever it is they have plus the little ones I babysit have been sick and Ive been exposed to that too!! Im usually really lucky and I rarely ever get sick (knock on wood) but man am I feeling a bit scared right now after being exposed to all these germs, lysol has become my best friend....Ive washed all the bedding, disinfected the house (especially the bathroom and beds) and Im hoping I got rid of all the germs

So say a little prayer for me.....
