a battle ended...

Just wanted to keep everyone updates. I will probably be away from my blog for the week.

My step mom passed away yesterday morning after a year long battle with cancer. L
So I will be spending time with my family this week.

Thanks for all of the prayers and concerns over the last year for her and for our family.

I just want to sleep

I feel like I a suffocating…
All the life is being sucked out of me.
I just want to sleep.

I feel like I am being smothered by life
Cut off of any feeling other than of sadness
I just want to sleep

I feel like I will never be happy
Just full of an endless sadness
I just want to sleep

I feel like my bed is my only sanctuary
Where reality can’t reach me
I just want to sleep

I feel like sleep is my only reprieve
Where the sadness is gone
I just want to sleep

Realization Friday

Well its realization Friday time…. And I am not really in the mood to do anything… but I know I have been slacking… A LOT… so I wanted to make sure I got all of these lovely realizations up…

So here it goes!!

This week I have come to realize that:

~ life never seems to happen the way you want it to..

~ it only takes one small thing to burst your bubble and make you drop back to reality

~ that I really do think I am forever meant to be where I am now. L

~ part of me wants to find a new church that is closer to home.. and part of me loves my church so much that I don’t want to leave.

~ that I am in a down funk mood this past week really…  I just want to go to sleep and wake up when everything is wonderful again.

~ people are annoying. 

~ nothing and noone is ever as they seem

~ I have the best mom in the world.

~ I feel like I am in a caotic whirlwind that I don’t really know how to get out of..

~ I kinda miss my “have no life” days… where it consisted of going home everyday and doing nothing… weekends of being lazy and watching movies all night by myself.. lol.

~ I have been in a “I just want to be alone” kinda mood…

~ ugh.

~ Ive lost my motivation again.

Well I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and have a great weekend!!

I’ve got a lot going on in my head…
I really didn’t want to get out of bed today and face the world… but I had to. I had to be an adult and take care of my responsibilities. 

Things aren’t looking great for my step mom. L

And it seemed like everything just kinda hit me last night.  What the future could be.. quicker than we thought.

But I have faith in my Lord that He will get us thru it all.

I am so tired today… all I keep thinking about is going to bed… getting a nap in… going to bed early… something.. anything… just sleep.  I am even considering taking a sleeping pill or something cuz even tho I do sleep… apparently its not good sleep cuz I am still tired every morning.

great weekend!!

This past weekend was absolutely fabulous. 

The weather was gorgeous. I got so much done.. and I spent wonderful time with some wonderful people!! J

Friday I had a girls night out. It was fun.. called it an early night tho. ;-)

Saturday I went shopping with my Mom all day. Came home… took the AC units out of the windows and put in the garage, mowed the front and back yards, bathed the dogs.. and took a nap. (I was exhausted after all that).. Then my bff came over and we watched some movies.  

Sunday I was up super early.  So I ended up getting the whole house cleaned up!!  I went to lunch with my sis and my daughter. Went up to visit my dad (he’s in a nursing facility cuz he just had surgery on his foot and can’t walk on it at all). Then went to my moms for dinner.  After dinner went home for girls night which is always a great time. J

I feel great!! :-D

I do feel a lil bad about this weekend cuz I didn’t go to Bible study or church. I really didn’t have the motivation for it.. and I hate that.. but I really don’t know what to do to change it L

Hope ya’ll had a great weekend!!!

Realization Friday

This is a rush job.. L

Sorry!!!  But thank you for every one who sent them in!!!

This week… I have come to realize that:

~ I really dislike impatient people.

~ Insecurity is a turn off.

~ People are annoying

~ That one ex is just an annoying douche bag

~ I have issues with trust and tend to second guess everyone.

~ I am really scared to fall for someone again.

~ when my phone messes up- it really stresses me out.

~ sometimes I think I would rather just stay single- wont get hurt that way.

~ I really need to quit picking my fingers

~ I don’t get why its so hard to see your kid consistently.

~ God is so good to me…even tho I don’t deserve it.

Have a great weekend ya’ll!!!

Jarritos- Mexican Soda! YUM!


I just got another delivery from Jarritos!!

Back in July I was contacted by Jarritos to try their Mexican Soda. Of course I said sure because I had seen it at my local favorite Mexican restaurant but was always too scared to try it incase I didn’t like it and then would waste the money…

My son, daughter and I tried all the flavors they sent.. and they were all pretty good but my favorite was definitely the Fruit Punch flavor.  I have been meaning to blog about it since then… but life seemed to get in the way and when I would blog.. I just never thought of it L I suck sometimes at that… especially lately. 

But today I received another special delivery from them of more soda and this time instead of sending a tshirt and cd they sent a Mexican wrestling mask and two Mexican wrestling action figures! Lil Man is going to love it!!

Also in my package there was a letter from them asking me to ask you to check out their website as they announce the arrival of their new branding campaign for Jarritos…
So please go to and look around! Listen to what each bottle as to say and be sure to click on the hombre with the movie camera. He will kindly direct you to Fuerte Vision, a new TV channel loaded with Jarritos approved programming. J

you can see the tshirt they sent me in the back round.. i love that shirt!! 

I have nothing but praise for the soda, for the company, and for the wonderful people that work there… So make sure you check them out and enjoy yourself a wonderful tasting soda. J
