Tomorrow is Gavin's 1st Birthday

So tomorrow is Gavin's 1st Birthday and I can not tell you enough how much I am proud of him. He has been here on this earth for one year now and he has learned SO much. I know most people are going to think I'm crazy for thinking this and say most babies do learn that in there first year. But to watch my nephew almost every day to grow, learn, play, and most of all laugh is just so amazing.


P.S. Gavin....tomorrow will be your first party and we will rock out like a rock star :P

Finnally the weekend!!!

UGH I am soo tired I stayed out way to late last night. It first started off my calling my friend Nicki to ask him about something. Then it ended us going out on a date to a really nice place. He got all dressed up and I really didn't think he was going too. Last time I spoke to him I though he was joking but it was all dressed pants, nice shirt, and nice shoes. I was just wear a nice summer dress because it was still hot out. Plus the bill came out so much from all the drinks we were getting. I was planning on paying for me but he just took the bill and got it all. So after that we ended up going to a bar to meet up with some friends we haven't seen in a while. Also him paying for that too....I mean come on Nicki let me pay for something. Well my goal was to leave around 11 but we didn't leave until 12:30....all I have to say is UGH!!!!!!

Before all this happened I went out for a second job. Nothing to big. I looked into The GAP only because all of my nephew's clothes are from there. So I figure that would help out my sister. Also I looked into Bath & Body Works....I never shop there unless its for gifts. So I figure with that one I would never buy anything and waste more money :P So both stores just kind of talked to me and seemed really pleased. Also I think they are more pleased by the job I am working now so maybe that would help too. I will keep you all posted!!

Have a great weekend :)

Day 983 of my captivity. My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I Are fed Hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I Nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength. The Only thing that keeps me going is my dream of escape. In an Attempt to Disgust them, I once again vomit on the carpet. Today I decapitated a mouse and dropped its headless body at their Feet. I had hoped this would strike fear into their hearts, since it Clearly demonstrates what I am capable of. However, they merely made Condescending comments about what a 'good little hunter' I am. Bastards! There was some sort of assembly of their accomplices tonight. I was Placed in solitary confinement for the duration of the event. However, I could hear the noises and smell the food. I overheard that my Confinement was due to the power of 'allergies.' I must learn what this means, and how to use it to my advantage. Today I was almost successful in an attempt to assassinate one of my Tormentors by weaving around his feet as he was walking. I must try this again tomorrow -- but at the top of the stairs. I am convinced that the other prisoners here are flunkies and Snitches. The dog continues to receive special privileges. He is Regularly released - and seems to be more than willing to return. He Is obviously retarded.

Quote of the Day you help you through life :)

"Here's the bottom line: We have only so much time here - let it be spent on doing things that make us like ourselves. Perhaps it's wearing clothes that flatter our figures, or just making an effort to speak nicely to the girl in the mirror. It's one thing to want to look good - heaven help you the day you leave the house wearing a belly chain - it's another to torment yourself for not looking like someone you're not. Have you considered how much easier life would be if we stopped comparing ourselves to runway waifs and Extremely Made-Over fem-bots? We must remind ourselves that advertisements are artificial constructions, not reality. In order to sell products, industries create images that appeal to us emotionally, that say, "Buy this bra and you'll look like Gisele!" We can choose to filter this stuff out and refuse to accept the message that the media is sending."

Just so sad....

One of my friends who I have known for about 10 years now, was in a very, very bad motorcycle accident. He has been in ICU. He was riding his brand new motorcycle on the highway with friends behind him following him. Well someone pulling a trailer cut him off and my friend got stuck in the wheel of the trailer and was dragged about 20 feet. They had to cut off his bottom part of his right leg off, he has problems with one of his hands that was trone up, and all over his body many cuts and sraces. This is not in full detail because just thinking about it makes me sick. Working for a insurance company and handling claims I can not tell you how many times I have see this happen. The worst part this time is I know the person who it happened to. The docs says hes going to make it and everything will be fine expect for the part he has to be in a wheel chair or has to get a fake leg and most of the time insurance will not cover for a fake leg. He has a long way a head of him.

Gavin's 1st Birthday Gift!!!!

Ok I have been looking hours on hours on the web to get for my nephew. At first I wanted to get him something that would last him until he's an adult like a necklace or something so he could remember his first birthday gift I ever gave him. Well it wasn't looking that way so I talked it over with my sister and ended up getting this. Its the Little Tikes Jump n' Bounce!!! Not too bad of a price the only thing that got me was the shipping from Ohio to New Jersey. But in the end the gift is really for me to see the smile on my nephew's face when he see's this/ plays in it :)
