And welcome back!  After a long weekend of re-finishing my kitchen cabinets I should be exhausted but have great energy today!   I can't believe what I am capable of doing!  It is awesome. It makes me think I can do anything!

Now I have to plan a birthday party for my soon to be 3 year old.  I have to put my entire kitchen back together, make about 50 cupcakes, party favors, clean, get ready for house guests, and god knows what else will come up before Thursday!  Ok remember that energy I mentioned, I need about a triple dose.

I think my next blog post will about the insane number of exclamation points I use daily!!!!!

Today I say SUCK IT!

Ok few followers!  You should know how precious you are to be the first of may followers (I hope!)

I am starting today out with some words of wisdom!  I'd like to say SUCK IT to all of the people who have done a lovely job of f**king me over in my life.  Although you have been deleted, and no longer have the privilege of being in my life,  you somehow manage to get in my head... GET OUT!

I am taking my feelings back and not letting myself get stomped on any longer!  If you care not to agree with me that is ok.  I feel that when some one burns you, you don't have to let them be in your life.  Although you may forgive them along the way, that doesn't mean, you have to talk to them again, EVER.  My husband does not understand this...

I take my friendships very seriously, and through all my life my trust has been abused by various people.  So when I find those I can relate to and get close to, I sometimes sabotage it and find reasons to be upset with people.  Often with little or no reason, except I guess it is my defense mechanism.  But I am tired of being riddled with guilt!  I have too much going for me!  So here I am starting anew, and just going to enjoy my friends and enjoy my life... YAY!

And I'd like to thank my fellow tweeters for reading this and accepting me for me, no matter what I may say or how crazy I may get.  Thanks for the words of encouragement yesterday!

So it's been a slow week, I have to say that coming up with things to blog about is hard!  Well, ok its not hard, but I find I hold myself back from myself because I don't want to offend anyone. Well, this STOPS NOW!  The whole reason I started this blog was to get my feelings, thoughts, and crazy mind out there.

So here it is...  If you want to follow me great, if you want to slam me, great.  If you want to agree with me... bring it!  But most of all I will stop hiding behind myself, and start being honest with you and me!

So for all of you church goers, politicians, Mommy do-gooders, stay-at-homers, working Moms, Dads, vegetarians, work out buffs, healthy eaters, runners, sitters, chefs, bloggers, tweeters, environmentalists, photographers, and basically any genre I have missed considered yourself included.  You may love what I have to say, or despise it, but regardless of your views, I am still gonna say it!

Wish me luck!

Fun, Fear, and New Babies

So it is 2011, and my hubs and I made a pact to start for number 2!  Wow!  That past year went fast!  But I had blast, traveling with girlfriends, watching my brother get married, road trip from Chicago to Austin to help my sister move.   Awesome New Orleans trip with hubs.  So now it is time to get down to business.  Step number one, had my IUD taken out yesterday!  Let the fun begin!

Part of me is super excited, the other part, scared.  First pregnancy was not so easy, but hey no gallbladder to worry about this time.  I keep trying to remember what it was like to have a big round belly, and its just not coming back to me. Which I guess is good, and why mother nature erases all the bad stuff from our minds.  What a tricky lady!

So here I begin my journey.  Last time it happened right away, who knows what will be this time...  Here we go!
