This is from the coolest chick I know...Chriselda . ..BTW I called you last night scootch..where was you at hooka?

When I stand up for myself and my beliefs,
they call me a bitch.

When I stand up for those I love,
they call me a bitch.

When I speak my mind, think my own thoughts
or do things my own way, they call me a

Being a bitch means I won't compromise what's in
my heart.

It means I live my life MY way.

It means I won't allow anyone to step on me.

When I refuse to tolerate injustice and speak against it,
I am defined as a bitch.

The same thing happens when I take time for
myself instead of being everyone's maid, or when I act a little selfish.

It means I have the courage and strength to allow myself to be who
I truly am and won't become anyone else's idea of what they think
I "should" be.

I am outspoken, opinionated and determined.

I want what I want and there is nothing wrong with that!

So try to stomp on me, try to douse my inner flame, try to squash every
ounce of beauty I hold within me.

You won't succeed.

And if that makes me a bitch, so be it.

I embrace the title and am proud to bear it.

B - Babe
I - In
T - Total
C - Control of
H - Herself

B = Beautiful
I = Intelligent
T = Talented
C = Charming
H = Hell of a Woman

B = Beautiful
I = Individual
T = That
C = Can
H = Handle anything

I guess that just about sums it up!

Rainy Day in Biloxi

Well yesterday it stormed so bad you couldn't see 1 foot in front of you and of course mother nature waiting util 5 o'clock to start raining. I am Jeepin it and it's a pain in the ass to get the kids in and out of it when the top is on. Luckily it let up a little bit so it wasn't so bad. This morning I woke up once again to black clouds. Please lord let it rain all day so it is through with at quitting time.

Here lately I have been in a really Blah mood. Hubby says I am in a bad mood but I don't exactly call it that. I like to say distant. Is it me, or does everyone get like that every now and then?

I sat down last night and finished V's CJ and let me tell ya...I am so pissed off. It looks like Hobby Lobby threw up on the sign in page. I can't believe I actually scrapped something that looks like this. I am so disappointed. I am to embarrassed to even post them so I will spare you. Elizabeth, bless her heart, said oh they're not that bad...she's lying I assure you...It's BAAAADDDDDDD!! Melana would have done better than this. I am a firm believer in not redoing a page though. I have contimplated on redoing it but I choose not to. I must have fiddled with that thing for 2 1/2 hours last night only for it it look worse and worse. Oh Well!

See I beat myself up when things aren't just pefect. I have to get out of that. I think my house should be perfectly clean and blah blah blah...if it's not it throws me into a frenzy and then I stress. I know everything in life can't be perfect. Especially with a 2 year old and 3 year old. At times I just have to step back and realize they are only 2 and 3 and I can't expect them to be perfectly clean and neat and tidy. It's just not possible. This is something I have been trying to work on but it is just not working for me. It works for about a week and then I start freaking out. Elizabeth thinks I am neurotic. See I have this thing with pajamas as well. My kids CANNOT and I repeat CANNOT go to bed without there pj's on. That is not acceptable. I will wake them up to put pj's on them if they fall asleep without them on. I know I am silly but that's just me. I have several other quirks I won't get into right now. Well I now feel better that I have ranted.

We now will return back to the regularly scheduled program!!

My New Ride.......

that I have to wait 8-12 weeks for. Waaaaaaa!! We decide to get rid of the gas guzzling Trail Blazer ( I sure am going to miss it) I loved that thing but with gas almost 3.00 a gallon and the way I rip and roar and burn up the skreet I thought it be best that I have a more efficient car so I decided I wanted a 2006 or it might be an 07 Honda Civic Hybrid. Yep that's right going big to small. We will now own the most effecient car on the road and the worst car on the road. The Hybrid that I am going to name Rhonda will get 50 MPG and the Jeep...please don't get me started on that damn Jeep, gets 9-12 miles to the gallon. I now have the pleasures of Jeepin it for the next 8-12 weeks..(I special ordered it) (god please let it only be 8). Now...I must say I am so excited to get a car that I have never test drove...yep that's right..how crazy is that? I know but look at all the cool things I am getting in it...Now folks don't be jealous....hehehehhe

This is the color I ordered in the inside. It will be silver with Navy Blue interior. All that stuff in it I am getting to....YAY! I love buttons and gadgets. The more the merrier...

My sterring wheel...see in the trailblazer i was spoiled with the air and radio buttons on the steering wheel so all my cars from here on out will have that. I also had leather in the trailblazer but unfortunatly that is not an option on this..but that's ok I can have then leathered up at a later date if I want..doubt it though...now onto the dash...

Yep that's right..don't be haten...my very own built in GPS.
You see...O'Neil always picks on me because I read a map upside down. He is amazed that I don't get us lost but you know I always get us where we are going. He says it's the damndess thing he has every seen. I think he is the crazy one. I know what's going on around here. NEVER doubt my directions people even though I read a map upside down doesn't mean we will get lost. Anywho so with this I asked him if I can set it to be upside down...he laughed at me...I didn't think it was a ridiculous question but hey what do I know??

Aggghhh and the smell of a new ride is always the shit...Man I cannot wait...650 miles to a tank of gas sure is sounding better and better seeings how today I went to work 10 miles one way to luch and back home and burned a quarter tank of gas...that is ridiculous....He needs to get rid of that damn Jeep

J-E-E-P stands for Just Empty Every Pocket....It's a money pit but now at least I have a jammin system since I have to ride in it for what feels like eternity.

Well have a great week!!

I threw on some clothes...slapped on some make-up myself fixed my hair..(wanted to do porno hair but ugh that didn't happen) then my mother..bless her heart asked if I would fix her hair and do her make-up as well...

okay, shoot me! i lied. i don't need to look at your template, i just wanted to get in here and let everyone know (if they didn't know already) how fuckin' fabulous you are in real life. i didn't want to ask for your information, but i tried to crack it for about 20 minutes last night and was completely unsuccessful!)

luv ya

greta & i at the donal snyder community center for inspector burriss' retirement party 4-17-06

can i just say that this girl rocks my socks off.


how we became friends

when greta started at the pd, she worked over in cid (criminal investigations division) and i was still the major's secretary over on the patrol side. on a daily basis, i had to bring her completed patrol follow up information and usually slid it through the lil slot that she had in her plastic window (no protection from the crazies with that).

she thought i was an uber bitch and i thought she seemed a lil mean.

when she first started at the pd, oneil (aka lieno...oneil spelled backwards...lol...thats another story) was still a deputy for the sheriff's department. i heard that he had been involved in a shooting and my heart immediately went out to greta. i wasn't sure of all the details at that time, but i knew what it was like to be an officer's wife.

i then did something that i have never done before. i called greta in her office to see how lieno was and to let her know that if she ever wanted to talk about what happened, to give me a call.

i then started going over to her office to chit chat and then on one particular day, i mentioned a scrapbooking magazine. we both discovered a love that we both shared.

the rest is history.

they're like two peas in a pod, but boy are they different

lol..its funny, me and greta are like night and day.

*i'm an introvert, she's and extrovert

*i'm afraid of getting caught, she is more then happy to take the chance

*i believe in love, she believes in one night stands ;)

*i can pour a mean batter into a cake pan, greta can pour a mean crown & coke

*i can paint a picture, greta can paint a face (and very well i might add

*i live in day dreams, she lives in the moment

*i like classic rock, she likes hip hop (or booty shakin' music as i call it ;)

these are just a few of the ways we are different. which is prolly why we get along so wonderfully. we compliment each other beautifully!

one of us is the exquisite meal, the other is the fine wine that goes with it perfectly.

what i love about greta

there are so many things that i love about this girl and so many things that she has taught me in the 3+ years that we have been friends, i don't know if i can fit them all into a post.

but i will name the things that are my favorite:

*greta has made me more me. what i mean is that greta doesn't let me forget that i don't need to give a rat's ass as to what anyone thinks of me and to just be me. for this i am forever greatful. i don't think that she will ever understand how this has changed my life.

*greta is always there to tell me how great i am...lol. she never lets me forget that i am a beautiful, talented woman.

*greta always tells me how it is (even if i don't want to hear its). she pulls my heads out of the clouds on a pretty regular basis and brings me back to reality. she lets me know if i am being a bitch (and believe you me, this is something that i need to be told, b/c sometimes for me, its just so natural that i don't even realize that i am being one).

*she always puts up with me when i am being a bitch :)

*i can walk around naked around greta. now before anyone gets all perverted (michael, i mean you if you are reading love) let me explain. i feel so comfortable in my skin (thanks to greta) that i can undress in front of her. i think the only person that i have ever been comfortable doing that in front of is mike. i won't even do that in front of my mom. but she has made me so comfortable and is so comfortable in her own skin, that i am able to do that.

*she will listen to me go on and on and on and on about the same ol shit and just listens to it.

*she calls me just cause. we may sit there in silence sometimes, but its nice to know she is on the other end.

*i can never get enough of her and if i don't have communication with her for even a few hours really, i have major "greta withdrawals".

*we are becoming in tuned with each other. i will think of her and she will call me. i love this about great friendships. that almost becoming one with each other.

*we can talk about the cat's meow over and over and over and over again and never get tired of it.

*we both have fallen in love with veronica mars (and a buncha other shows) and will talk about it like we know the folks.

*she excepts (and has to put up with) all my faults and still loves me.

i could keep going on and on and i am sure that when i am laying in bed tonight about to fall asleep, i'll think more things to add.

greta is simply one of the love's in my life.

i seriously love this girl and truly believe that a piece of my life would be missing if she wasn't in it.

i thank God every day that i stepped outta my shell and made that phone call.

girl, if you're reading (which i know you are) i love you! you make life fun. without you....well, shit, i don't know what i would do without you. know that i love you and would do absolutely anything that you needed. i hope you know that i am here for you ALWAYS!!!

shit, now i'm gonna get all weepy and wish that you were here to give a big ol hug to!

fuck diamonds, you truly are a girl's best friend.

i luv ya :)


love, elizabeth

Aww! I am a little teary eyed. That was just the sweetest thing. If you can believe this I am a little lost for words...I know, I know, that is a first. I am very good with comebacks but I guess in this case I am at a lost. I love you too...you rock!!!

There you have it my very first CJ. This is alot of fun. Now I am off to start on V's that I received on Friday. Her's is Zodiac and I am really excited about this one to. I love anything astrological related.

Hope ya'll have a great week!! I'll post my entry in those when I finish them.


This is some funny crap

Now I don't normally post stuff I get in emails but this one is just to good not to share with all you folks out there......this is so true and I would KILL O'Neil do you hear me screaming this!!!!

I never quite figured out why the sexual urge of men and women differ so much. And I never have figured out the whole Venus and Mars thing. I have never figured out why men think with their head and women with their heart.

FOR EXAMPLE: One evening last week, my girlfriend and I were getting into bed.

Well, the passion starts to heat up, and she eventually says "I don't feel like it, I just want you to hold me."

I said "WHAT??!! What was that?!"

So she says the words that every boyfriend on the planet dreads to hear... "You're just not in touch with my emotional needs as a woman enough for me to satisfy your physical needs as a man." She responded to my puzzled look by saying, "Can't you just love me for who I am and not what I do for you in the bedroom?"

Realizing that nothing was going to happen that night, I went to sleep.

The very next day I opted to take the day off of work to spend time with her. We went out to a nice lunch and then went shopping at a big, big unnamed department store. I walked around with her while she tried on several different very expensive outfits. She couldn't decide which one to take so I told her we'd just buy them all. She wanted new shoes to compliment her new clothes, so I said lets get a pair for each outfit. We went onto the jewelry department where she picked out a pair of diamond earrings. Let me tell you...she was so excited. She must have thought I was one wave short of a shipwreck. I started to think she was testing me because she asked for a tennis bracelet when she doesn't even know how to play tennis. I think I threw her for a loop when I said, "That's fine, honey." She was almost nearing sexual satisfaction from all of the excitement. Smiling with excited anticipation she finally said, "I think this is all
dear, let's go to the cashier."

I could hardly contain myself when I blurted out, "No honey, I don't feel like it."

Her face just went completely blank as her jaw dropped with a baffled WHAT?"

I then said "honey! I just want you to HOLD this stuff for a while. You're just not in touch with my financial needs as a man enough for me to satisfy your shopping needs as a woman." And just when she had this look like she was going to kill me, I added, "Why can't you just love me for who I am and not for the things I buy you?"

Apparently I'm not having sex tonight either....but at least that bitch knows I'm smarter than her.

Just pics from O'neil"s Birthday gathering

*Edited to change a pic to the correct one with O'Neil and my pink furry hat** OOPPS!

Last Saturday night a group of us got together and went out to dinner and drinks for O'Neil's Birthday. We had a blast. We started with dinner at the Outback and headed on over to this gay bar with some friends for the drag queen show. That was some funny shit. We had a blast. A couple of our friends are gay so we always go there with them. We all work together. Here are a few pics from out night out. They aren't the best because we were *ahem* drunk to say the least and couldn't focus all that well. I am proud to say, however, none of us are half off the pics. Hehehehe...Elizabeth and I just knew for sure we would have like and eyeball or something but they are ok....

Damn you Elizabeth for forgeting your small digi camera. Oh well the 35 mm wouldn't have let us down had we been just a wee bit hmmm...how ya say it??? Sober!! yeah that's the word I am looking for.

Since this post would be so long I am just going to summarize up the week for you with a few pics or two.

** Saturday I took Mason to a b-day party, yes another one, and it was a dress up-tea party(a girl in his class) They had the best little time. The boys had a top hat's and crowns with the bow tie and the girls had little dress up cinderella, snow white and princess dress. Here are a few pics:

Then after the party I get a phone call from my mother saying my sister had flipped her car on the highway. She said she swerved to miss hitting someone and lost control because she pulled the wheel to hard. She was on her way to work and thank god she didn't have the kids in the car with her. They told her had she not been as short as she is (4'9) that she would have been killed along with any passenger's in the vehicle. She's all messed up but seems to be doing ok. The swelling on her brain has gone down so that is a plus. She has a torn rotater cuff (sp?) and she is all bruised and banged up from head to toe. I think we have all decided she needs a bicycle or mopad. Her driving record is not that great. You'd think at 38 years old she would learn by now. She hasn't!!

Let's see what else...umm a bunch of us got together for O'Neil's Birthday and went out on Saturday night and got our drunk on. I haven't got those pics scanned yet so I won't elaborate to much just yet. I'll save that for another post. I wasn't even going to take the precious Rebel out while drinking. That is just a no -no so I pulled out the good old, never let ya down, 35 mm canon I have.

Image hosting by Photobucket

This was the next day when the kids put on Melana's plastic potty training pants on there heads and informed me that was their cooker hats. BWHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Sunday Eliz and I left for out conference in Baton Rouge. We had a good time. Not like we thought but it was ok. I only have one pic but it's at work and I forgot to take it down and bring home to scan. Maybe she will have it posted on her site. If not I will round that one up also to post. It was a very, very good pic of us if I do say so myself.

Okay so I know it comes with no suprise that I like the 80's (LMAO) so I leave you with this shirt that Elizabeth bought me.

Image hosting by Photobucket

I know this was a random ass post but I feel so overwhelmed with everything that has gone on and only having half my pics. So I leave you fine folks with this for now.

I will be playing catch up for the next few days. I have V's CJ I need to work on. I received it today. YAY!! So I will be working on that among a bunch of other stuff I have to finish up for this DAMN wedding next weekend. Hope everyone had a great week and I will be commenting soon.

Oh yeah and by the way, O'Neil has pink eye now also....poor thing!!
