From all bad things comes good....

So as upset as I was about my car being broken into and being violated there are a few good things that have come from it.

1. The manager where I work has contracted an electrician to have the back parking lot where I work properly lit so no one else has their car jacked up. (This is the 3rd break in of employee cars since October. All break ins happened in the same spot)

2. MY NEW CAR!!!!

I love it!! It rides great. Its a 2008 KIA Sportage with a 10 year 100,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty, roadside assistant FULLY Loaded, 4WD.

I am such a lucky girl. And just in time too we got 10 inches of snow overnight!!

What a tangled web we weave..

Do you have those friends in your life that have SO MUCH drama it makes you sick.

But you feel sort of like you need to save this person from themselves?

I did a horrible thing today. And I need to vent a little. I hurt someone I care about. But it was not malicious or hurtful it was the truth.

It was a truth that was not my place to tell and I told.

A friend of mine cheated on her boyfriend. 5 times. (I know CRAZY) and by cheating I am not suggesting a little "kissing" or "flirting" it was full on cheating.

See, she lost her phone on Friday. And she used mine to call her boyfriend who is 2000 miles away in Texas on training for 2 months. He sent me a text today asking if she she is being a good girl.

Umm I ignored it for a long time. But he was very persistent.

So I told him he needed to talk to her about it and be honest. Neither of them are really ready for a relationship...

And it all went downhill from there, I never said for sure that she did, I just suggested around the bush a little bit.

And he was of coarse a boy about it. He went off (keeping in mind this was all done through text) and said some horrible things about her and also what he had done.

I went to talk to her. To say sorry and show her all the texts and to apologize for getting involved because its not my place to say who or what is good for her. Or to tel him about her cheating ways.

She may or may not forgive me. Its the truth and I can not lie. If she really wanted to be in a relationship then she needs to stop sleeping around and commit to the relationship and I told her this too. He is going to find out anyways. The guy she slept with last night WORKS IN THE SAME UNIT (military) and they all know each other...

I grew out of this crap a long time ago...... What are your thoughts??

We FINALLY have moving dates!! Sort of

The details so far are:

Hubby signs out of his current facilitie Monday Feb 2. 11 DAYS!!!

And then drives to Kansas City, KS to report for duty Feb 3rd!! I am so excited to finally have dates!!

We are being put into temporary housing for 30 days in Kansas and we still do not have dates for the movers yet.


I have already booked an appointment for Daisy for a doggie wellness check up for the 29th. Not sure if y'all remember but our last move caused her so much stress she got really sick with a bladder infection and belly issues and was at the vet for 3 days. This time around though she will be on doggie prozac to calm her nerves and help her with the adjustments. We are going to do blood work and stuff just to make sure she is healthy and thriving... I know it sounds cruel to medicate your dog but seeing her so sick last time I am going to take preventative measures this time.

Ok so now I need everyone to keep their fingers crossed that I either get a new car, or my car is fixed before I have to make the LONG drive to Kansas.

So weird being on my feet again all day...

But its good.

Its a nice change. To be honest its a relief really for the next few weeks we are still here before the move to be doing something I love.

The hubby should have a "time frame" tomorrow so fingers crossed!

A new week.. A new beginning

It has to get better from here.

It sucks to have your car broken into on a Saturday night. Well because EVERYTHING is closed Sundays... Which means today I will have to wait for the insurance to call (I filed my claim on line) and the adjuster to come out.

Everything happens for a reason.....

So this week has taught me it could be worse. I had a table at the restaurant today and nice little lady the first thing she said to me was "I am having the worst week ever"

So me being me I challenged her to it and listed my "shittest week ever stats"

Monday~ Got "fired"

Tuesday ~ Found out about funeral I would be attending for a child and the situation behind the death.

Wednesday~ Went to funeral and it was HORRIBLE, mom and dad did not even cry. Maybe its the divorce. Maybe? But they seemed more relieved that anything... It really bothered me.

Thursday~ Went out to the bar and ran into mother of dead child. Parting like she did not just bury her child. Avoided jail by immediately leaving bar.

Friday~ Received bill in the mail for ADDITIONALS for my teeth. $981.

Saturday~ Car got jacked up and broken into lots of damage.

Sunday~ I am still alive to tell the story.

She won. And I bought her lunch.

I am thankful for all the blessings in my life. I am a firm believer that everything that happens to you is a test. Its how you deal with these tests that builds your character.

I have my marriage (for now, he is really frustrated with me not wanting a new car. Oh and me costing him so much money)

I have my health.

I have my family and friends.

I have Daisy that misses me even when I am only gone 5 minutes.

I have a closet full of FABULOUS shoes.

I have a part time job that took me in Full time now that I asked.

Life is good.

Each day is a blessing.

Are you F&*KING kidding me?? REALLY??


Yeah it looks like a big slash in the top of my covertible roof?? Yeah thats what it is.. Some FUCKER broke into my car

This beautiful view is from the inside....

And they stole shit. Shopping. They stole MY NEW FUCKING BEAUTIFUL SHOES!!! Winter coat all my paperwork from the glove box. The FUCKER stole my SUNTAN FUCKING LOTION!! Bastards.
I am so angry. Mad. Upset!!!


I need to just go to bed and sleep the rest of this week off. I mean really I should not be driving.

Serious!! FUCK!

Even worse than anything I could imagine

I am going to a funeral tomorrow.

For a baby.

3 months old.

Who after the child stopped breathing "mom" called 911 the child was airlifted to children s hospital and was on life support for 4 days.

He would have never had brain function.

His skull was cracked.

By his mother.

But the police are going to let her bury her baby she killed before charges are laid.

I work with the father.

Who's FUCKING wife also after killing his only son took out an obituary and listed HER FUCKING BOYFRIEND as a step father to the dead child.

Shaping up for the worst week EVER!!

I have never been fired from a job.


Until today.

Well they never really said "fired" as much as it was "without cause"

My manager could not even look at me. And its Gov so they are not required to give a reason because if the probationary period....

There are a few reason I could think of.

1. I told them in August that I would be leaving and still have not given them a date

2. I do not fit into their "cookie cutter" world and if something or someone bothers me I let them know as much....

3. Its the Gov.. a friend suggested down sizing? I mean everyone knows someone thats been laid off.

But as much as I should be upset I am not. I am a bit relieved and angry all at the same time. I mean I am thankful for the time they afforded me and the experience but without reason really bothers me.

I would like to know "why" but then again it really does not matter.

Everything happens for a reason

I may have been a little hysterical...

Have you ever had a moment in your life where you are part of something so horrible you try to block it from your mind?

For the last 5 hours I have not been able to get it out of my mind.

I drove to Colorado today to go shopping. Something I have done a million times before.

Shopping went well. I took Daisy with me so we could have some quality mom and dog time, she LOVES the car and I like her company.

We had a great day and headed home around 5pm. I called the hubby to let him know I was on my way.

About 20 miles home into the trip its dark the moon is HUGE and I notice that there are NO CARS on the other side of the highway. None. Not a single car. So strange because this is one of the busiest highways in Colorado.

Then I see the break lights, no problem we come around the bend and the night is illuminated buy flashing nights. Police cars go by us on the left side of the road.

I immediately feel sick. I hate accidents. I do not realize how bad an accident until my car is in park on the highway. About 20 minutes pass and we are directed off onto the shoulder onto another side street beside the highway to go pass.

I am praying out loud, for who ever was involved. For the first responders for the ambulance drivers that are the only vehicles on the opposite side of the road that are taking people to the hospital.

As we near the scene of the accident I am so close we can hear the firefighters yelling to each other.

I can hear metal on metal being torn apart by the jaws of life.

I drive through clothing, suitcases, paper filling the road.

I see the cars. About 5 that I can see. And the scene makes me sick. Cars upside down, laying on there sides.

A HUGE accident. A medivac helicopter flys very close over my head. The other side of the highway has 3 more helicopters parked on the highway.

I start to cry. Daisy licks my tears. I call the hubby in hysterics. I am so upset I get sick into a cup I had in the car.

I prayed all the way home.

I am still sick about it.

Interview me....

So I saw this GREAT meme over The Princess Diaries

And I asked her to interview me... So here it is

1. I thought you were starting a blog devoted to your shoes...what ever came of that??
Umm I started... Its right here but I never got to uploading any pictures.. Maybe I will get back to this some day..

2. Speaking of shoes, are you like me and just buy the pretty ones that you can afford, or do you also buy Prada and Gucci?
I only buy cheap ones.. I just could never warrant spending too much on shoes. I prefer to spend under $30 mostly. I have splurged a few times on ones that I HAD TO HAVE. But my max was $100. And they were Guess, and patent leather and purple. My name was all over them.

3. How's the Twilight Journey going? Are you Team Edward or Team Jacob?
Just finished the books. Today actually. I am team Edward for sure. I did say I liked the movie better, but after getting through the series and having gone back to see the movie again. The books are better!

4. George Clooney or Brad Pitt?
Ugg on both of them. I am more of a Vin Diesel fan? Or the Rock....

5. What would your luxury item on Survivor be?
Lip gloss.. I have about 15 in my purse I can not stand to have dry lips!! Its one of my pet peeves.. that or a bottle to hold my water. I drink LOTS of water in a day..

"Want to be part of it? Follow these instructions:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions."

Happy New Year!!

Wow a new year already!! I looked back at what I wrote for 2008 I thought it was really cute. My resolutions for 2008 (things I learned from my dog)

I am not a real "make resolutions" type of girl. However looking forward on the year things are going to change ALOT for us in 2009 and I am really excited!!

We are moving to Kansas City, KS for the hubby's job. So this year again brings new beginnings and many HUGE changes.

We are hoping to buy a house this year. He should be in the same position for at least 3 years so now is the time!

Daisy is going to be 2 years old. WOW. 2 years. I wonder what we ever did without her?

I am going home to Canada at least 2 times this year. Its been 2 years so I am very excited. One of my best friends is due this month with her 3rd baby and I am excited to finally meet him!

It will be a year of changes. Both the hubby and I are going to focus on our health this year. We have both committed to make some changes in the new year to lose some weight and start eating healthier. I lost 25 pounds last year which was huge. I still have 37 to go to be back at my weight I was before I broke my neck.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Here's hoping its going to be a great new year for everyone!
