Dancing with the Stars

Oh boy! Have any of you guys been watching it?  As I have said before, I never intended on watching this season, however, I was curious to see Kate - as in Jon and Kate plus 8.  Well, tonight is the fist elimination and I honestly think that she will go before Buzz.  I mean this woman is just awful.  I give her credit for having the gaul to get up in front of millions and strut her stuff BUT!!!!!!My GAWD is this woman awful.  What makes it worse is that not only is her dancing awful, but so is her attitude.  She had a "blow out" with her "professional" partner.  She was criticizing the way he was teaching her!!!!!!! Are you serious Kate?  I was so hoping and praying that I would see her on the show and see that she is a nice person.  Let me tell you, she does not seem nice. Poor Tony, her partner.  I bet folks, he is betting they are the first to go.  I sadly have to announce I did vote for her on  and let me tell you, I am kicking myself in the arse!!!!!

On a different note, why does Pamela Anderson always look like she is either high or drunk?  Everytime they show that woman, she is twirling her head around, looking like she is ready to pounce on her partner and do the nasty.  However, she has surprised me with her dancing and I think she may be around for a while :)

Tuesdays Feel good Moment

A nurse took the tired, anxious serviceman to the bedside.

"Your son is here," she said to the old man.

She had to repeat the words several times before the patient's eyes opened.

Heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly saw the young uniformed Marine standing outside the oxygen tent.. He reached out his hand. The Marine wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man's limp ones, squeezing a message of love and encouragement.

The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine could sit beside the bed.All through the night the young Marine sat there in the poorly lighted ward, holding the old man's hand and offering him words of love and strength. Occasionally, the nurse suggested that the Marine move away and rest awhile.

He refused. Whenever the nurse came into the ward, the Marine was oblivious of her and of the night noises of the hospital - the clanking of the oxygen tank, the laughter of the night staff members exchanging greetings, the cries and moans of the other patients..

Now and then she heard him say a few gentle words. The dying man said nothing, only held tightly to his son all through the night.

Along towards dawn, the old man died. The Marine released the now lifeless hand he had been holding and went to tell the nurse. While she did what she had to do, he waited.

Finally, she returned. She started to offer words of sympathy, but the Marine interrupted her.

"Who was that man?" he asked.

The nurse was startled, "He was your father," she answered.

"No, he wasn't," the Marine replied. "I never saw him before in my life.."

"Then why didn't you say something when I took you to him?"

"I knew right away there had been a mistake,

But I also knew he needed his son, and his

Son just wasn't here.

When I realized that he was too sick to tell

Whether or not I was his son,

Knowing how much he needed me, I stayed."

I came here tonight to

Find a Mr. William Grey.

His Son was Killed in Iraq

Today, and I was sent to

Inform him. What was this

Gentleman's Name?

The Nurse with Tears in

Her Eyes Answered,

Mr. William Grey.............

The next time someone needs you ....... Just be there. Stay.





(love this line)

Hot Bath and Body Works Coupon

Spend $10 at Bath and Body Works and get a free Signature Collection Shower Gel (up to a $10.50 value)...
Simply go HERE


Today I awoke to the morning news and they had a story about a man who had lost his leg to a drunk driver.  That in it of itself is a story.  However, the story was not about that.  The  story was about how this man forgave this woman for what she did.  He read a victim impact statement in court that was short, all of about 2 minutes.  However, in that statement he told the woman that he knows that she is suffering, her family is suffering and he forgives her for what she did.  With  that, the man then gave this woman a hug.  I sat there for a moment in silence.  "WOW!" I thought.  What an incredible human being he is.  To be able to forgive this woman who left him with only one leg.  This man has three children and although he has an artificial leg, he will never be able to fully enjoy running around and being a dad with these three children.  This woman took something so very precious away from him and he forgave her.  It got me thinking to other things.  For instance, with the latest on the Jesse James and Tiger Woods infidelity scandals, do their wives forgive?  And with the 15'th Anniversary of the Susan Smith Story - you know, the woman that killed her two kids by making the car roll in to the river.  Does her ex husband forgive?  Without getting  too religious, I know that the bible tells us we must forgive.  However, I am not sure in all of these instances, I would be able to.  The infidelity - definitely not.  I think any one that cheats and says they have an addiction is using that as a cop out.  I do not beleive there is such a thing as a sexual addiction.  And if anybody, I don't care who they are EVER did anything to any one of my kids, I know  I could never forgive them. I mean,  I flew off the handle when my oldest came home and tells me his teacher made a spectacle of him in front of the class.  Forgiveness is a powerful thing.  They say that you can forgive, but you never forget.  I'm sorry, you do me wrong your not getting my forgiveness and you can be damn sure I'm not going to forget about it.  I look at people who are able to forgive certain  awful things and I admire them in a certain way.  It is truly hard to forgive and to be able to do it, I mean really do it, you have to be a very  strong person.  On the other hand, people that forgive  others that do them wrong ie cheating, they are just plain old stupid!  Have more respect for yourself!!!!
o.k. o.k. that was daily rant for the day :)  Happy Monday!

Dancing with the Stars

I said I wouldn't do it! Nope! I was sick of the less than interesting commentary from Tom Bergeron. And the Judges!!!!! ugh! C'mon , I can't even understand Bruno, Len (I think that's his name) in my opinion is too old to be judging a dance competition. o.k., o.k. he is a ballroom dancing judge. However, whenever the dancers try spicing it up, he HATES it. Kerry Ann I have nothing bad t say about her except when they say her name. It just gets under my skin......... Whew.... now that i just spewed all that at ya...I did watch Monday nights premiere. I have to be honest, I was really only watching it to see Kate Gosselin. Yes, I am a gossip junkie and with her recent tabloid headlines, I wanted to see how she did. part of me was sort of rooting for her. BUT after seeing her performance -MY GAWD!!!!!!!! Kate should just throw in the towel. Sorry Kate. And while we are one the subject of awful dancers - Buzz!!!!! Why oh why ABC do you find it necessary to bring in these "older" folks and embarrass them on national t.v. I understand he is an American Hero, but please don't put him in dance shoes.. that poor man had no rhythm at all. O.k. So what about "Jake the Bachelor" I mean really guy??? Did you not just finish up a reality t.v. show? Is it necessary for you to be on another one? Shouldn't you be spending your time getting top know your new Fiancee? AND when did reality t.v. folk become stars? When I hear the title of the show, "Dancing with the Stars" I'm thinking "Stars" not B or C list actors and certainly not reality t.v. stars - to those reality t.v. stars I say.. let it go.... your 15 minutes is up.

Before I end I do want to say that Pamela Anderson you did surprise me. Although your dance looked more like a strip tease, you dance quite well.. Rock on!!!!!

As I sit here on another Monday morning, another weekend just a distant memory. I had so many plans for this past weekend, so many "projects" I wanted to do, and things I wanted to do as a family. But it seems as if I blink and the weekend is gone. Saturday it was absolutely beautiful out and I wanted to go to the Park with Daddy and Liam and possible feed the ducks. But Daddy was off taking care of some other business. O.k. I thought, We still have Sunday. I even got up early on Sunday so I - err rather we, could all take full advantage of the day. Although we did get some projects done, I feel like we didn't spend any time together as a family. Eric was off doing his projects and I went running around with Liam to score some deals at the stores. I wish we went to the park or at least went for a walk. But before we knew it, it was 7:00 at night! Where did the day go?
Life passes us by so quickly. I know at least for me, I need to learn to slow down and enjoy the special moments with my family. It's o.k. to put off laundry another day, it's not going anywhere! I have to learn not to be such a neat freak and to not scowl at whoever leaves their shoes or toys lying around. I need to learn that when my kids leave their toys lying around, that's just them being kids, that's what kids do and as long as they are having fun, that's all that matters. I know that one day my kids will get older and not want me around so I must spend the time with them now to sit on the floor, get messy, play baseball - just be a goofy mom and hang out with them and create special memories with them. And with Eric, it seems like we are two passing ships in the night. By the time he gets home from work, it's dinner time and then he is so tired from working all day he usually hits the couch and his eyes are closed. I want to make it a point to engage in conversation with him when he gets home, give him a hug, a smile..anything but a rundown of how bad MY day was........We do have family dinner and that is a great thing. We all sit around and laugh and talk about our days. Sometimes I wish I could bottle up those times and relish in the memories. I thank God that he has sent Eric into my life and he has blessed me with such a wonderful family. Family is everything and I must remember that. I am going to cherish every second of everyday that God has given me with my loved ones.

Menu Plan Monday

I should have titled this Menu Plan Sunday. I missed posting this last week....o.k. o.k. I didn't plan ahead for last weeks dinners boo! And what a pain in the neck it was. So this week I made sure to plan ahead and so here goes:
Sunday - Perdue Roasting Chicken w/ garlic mashed potatoes and peas.

Monday - Steak Tips marinated overnight in Italian Dressing w/ baked potato and veggie

Tuesday - Chicken wings on the grill w/ Corn on the cob and rice

Wednesday - Lasagna w/ tossed salad and rolls

Thursday - Tangy Ranch Chicken w/ Pesto pasta and dinner rolls

Friday - We are making a pizza

Movie review time again kiddies......

O.k. so with all the free codes between Redbox and Blockbuster Express, Eric and I have rented a few movies this week. I already reviewed the BOX and if you want to see what I thought about it, you can scroll down to my older posts.
We rented 2012. I was kinda on the fence about renting this movie but I figured, "what the heck, it's free!" Well, I have to tell you that personally, I did not like it AT ALL. Eric enjoyed it though. This movie is like all the other "end of the world" movies you have your cast of "main Characters" That somehow escape the end of the world. You have your President wishing everyone well and lots of ridiculous action scenes that are so far fetched you have no choice but to laugh. My advice to you guys - don't waste your time!
We also rented The Time Traveller's Wife. This one was a bit weird, kinda started off very slow. However, I do have to say I enjoyed it. It's a nice love story. They story line was a little Blah but still a good movie in a cutesy sort of way. I would recommend this movie :)
Another movie we rented was Law Abiding Citizen. Unfortunately, I fell asleep :( However, Eric watched it and he loved it. He told me about it and it sounded like a really good movie. I would have to say that I would definitely recommend it.


Redbox codes

I'm going to post these again. I have used both and they both worked for me. I am not sure when they expire so you may want to use them up quickly.
*****You will still have to swipe your debit or credit card - this is in case you do not return the movie the next day*******
Between the redbox codes and the endless Blockbuster Express codes Eric and I have been watching movies all week. I think we watched more movies this past week that we watched all of last year.
