I got my new glasses today!! I love them. I can look down and up and they stay on my face. For months (yes sad I know) I have had to hold my glasses at the bridge if I want to look down or heaven forbid, walk with my glasses on (they used to slide down my face) but now they are snug in place. I promised the optician man that I would not adust themmyself. He was so dframatic when he told me not to, its was cute and made me not feel so
dumb silly for trying to adjust them myself.
My mother and I went to pick up my glasses and when she got home there was a message on the answering machine from the doctors office.
This past monday she went for a mammogram and today they called and left a message for her to cal back. Now she is worried, afraid, and obsessing. On the drive home with my new glasses on I thought to myself 2012 is going to be a great year and I am so glad my mother is Cancer free. I have faith that she is fine and we have nothing to worry about yet I hate that she is worried and afraid. I hate that she is afraid….
I called my SIL who is a nurse and she told me that just because the doctor called doesn’t mean its bad news. I agree. My mother thinks that when the doctors office calls after a test its always bad news and I HATE that she thinks that. All the tests she has done so far in the past month have been great and she had had nothing but positive news from all of them. I hate that now I am wondering the same thing about this message though deep down I have faith that she is fine.
I wish she was stronger. She stands in church and proclaims victory over Cancer almost every Sunday yet today she sat after telling me she got a missed message and looked like the doctor just gave her the worst news of he rlife and its all from her imagination. We don’t know, so why assume the worst? She’s on the phone with her friend now who is a pastor. I hope when the call is over she will be in better spirits because I have run out of things to say and I wish she would hold tighter to her faith and just believe. You are what you believe not what you feel. I want her to believe and not worry. I don’t want to worry.
Yesterday was my birthday and I gotta say it was AMAZING! I slept in til around 11 am then woke up and headed out with my mom. First to my uncle’s house where I ran some errands for him. I really don’t mind because he has been such an important part of my life. It was really cold today and he is unable to walk without a lot of difficulty so I didn’t mind walking across the street to do all the things he would have liked to.
After that my mom and I headed to the mall and I had a really good consultation at the MAC story with a really great MAC consultant. She was sweet, gentle, kind and informative. I bought some great stuff and I think we are both on the same page when it comes to what make up looks great on my skin tone. A lot of MUA (make up artists) misunderstand what works with me so finding someone who totally got it made me feel great. After wards my mom and I browsed the COACH store (I love that store) then Michel Kors (my new love) and finally a few other stores including Victoria Secret – they have an AMAZING sale going on right now among other stores.
I was determined to have dinner at Milestones Restaurant but a water main break closed all the restaurants in the mall. I parked very far and walked in the wind chill to the parking parkade, fought with my phone to find other locations open and finally battled the traffic around the mall to pick my mom up. I decided to give the restaraunt one more try and guess what? They were open! God is good. I’m glad my phone gave me some issues to pull everything up so that I gave the restaurant another try. My waitress was amazing and the food was great!
To sum up my day and evening after the restaurant I’d have to say was amazing. Everything I wanted I was blessed to have. God is good and this was an amazing day!! My facebook wall is full of well wishes from friends and family and acquaintances. I’m typing this Jan 2nd with 51 minutes left in my day and I wish I had another 24 hours to do it all over again!! I had a great NYE with my family (a bit tipsy bit that makes it so fun), a quiet and relaxing day with my brothers house as the baby slept, my SIL folded laundry and talked to her mom and one of 3 cats, Bubble and looking out the window at nothing as she purrs against my face. Not to mention my SIL made an awesome chocolate birthday cake for me!
This is going to be my year! It has started off so great already! A complete 180 from last January.
I hope you guys had a great day as well!!! Talk to you all soon!
I’ve been busy lately studying for my finals. I’m taking a break tommarow after work to meet RJ (Mr. Dominican) at the batting cages to chat and hit some balls! LOL The thought of hitting balls excites me! But not for the reason you may think! Nope, I want to get some frustration out (not that kind). But since someone out there reading this is probably giving me the side eyeso I’ll induldge a bit. I have a thing for knives. They fascinate me. For years I have wanted to buy a Kitana sword. I think there is nothing sexier then a feminine whoman who knows how to weild a sword with deadly precision. I love it.Its dangerous, sexy and fun! It fits in nicely since I also like to throw things so a few ninja stars would be nice too. I’m starting to wonder a few things about myself. Being single has given me a chane to reconnect with what I like, what turns me on and what doesn’t. Knives turn me on, swords turn me on, biting turns me on and so does being blind folded. I love it. I love biting but not so much being biten. I plan to keep these tidbits of information to myself till I find someone I want to share them with, or do them to which ever comes first.
Either way, I wont be debuting these “turn on’s” tommarow at the batting cages. But I did enjoy sharing them with you all. As allways I will share all the details with you when I get back.
Talk to you all later!
I don’t like BS. That being said I try pretty hard to be upfront and honest in my interactions with men. I decided I wanted to do whats right for me and take time to re-charge my batteries and focus on myself. Its funny, because you ever notice that when you make that affirmation out loud, some guy comes along and proposes that you should “give him a chance”? I met someone off match.com. He is 4 years over my threshold but he seemed “nice” so I figured why not get to know him over the phone. Midterms and my assignment had me really busy so it wasn’t the best timing to get to know someone but I made an effort. But he is not really my type in the looks department but I figured if he is a nice guy why not give him a chance and see if we are compatible. 3 years ago I made the same decision and 3 years later it ended in Walmart in a flurry of mean accusations, even meaner affirmations and a smirk or two to added a special twist on the knife being put into my heart and back. You would think I would have learned by now that someone “caring” and being “nice” doesn’t replace compatibility and interest.
Soon my alarm bells started going off. He seemed waaaay too attentive. I didn’t like that because it seemed a bit too soon for good mornings every morning. I didn’t like that at all. So I contemplated how I could nicely nip that in the bud without coming off as a bitch or as I like to say, “killing a fly with a blow torch”. Then I noticed he was suddenly becoming a bit distant. I figured he felt a ways that I was studying every night, even though he knew my course is a semester and began talking to someone else. Then I noticed I was the one initiating contact. Not cool. I stopped contacting him because my gut began to tell me that he was no longer interested. So he messages me to tell me we should meet Saturday to see if we are on the same page. Hmmm…
What do you guys think? I’m not really attracted to him all that much but I also didn’t hear from him today at all. So I began wondering. I’m going to go with my gut on this one.
Talk to you all later.
I had a plan today that I would jet out of work as soon as the long hand reached the 12. An hour before hand I began the count down and spread out my work so I could do just that. Well, the long hand reached all the way to the 15 and I was still at work. For some reason it was just us girls so it didn’t feel so rushed. As we stood around talking the OM noticed a white bird land in front of our glass door. We walked over to see and sure enough this very pretty white bird was limping and pulling her head into her feathers and puffing out her chest.
Poor birdie was hurt. At first we thought it was her leg but quickly realized it was her wing. Bird aren’t really meant to walk so try as she did she stumbled and fell a few times before coming to stand still in the middle of the drive way.Cars drive very quickly through there so we tried ushering her along, we gently nudged her but she wouldn’t budge. She was scared but still determined to get across the driveway to the grassy area. Since she didn’t want to move (probably because she was scared) we decided to play crossing guard and warn drivers by standing in front of her and directing them around. A really nice lady came by and together we picked up the bird (in a paper towel because we don’t know how clean she is) and set her in the grassy area. When I left 10 minutes later she was still there. I hope she is ok.
Today, I helped save a bird. Feels good. I love nature and I don’t like seeing any living thing hurt so I was glad to help her out.
Talk to you all soon 🙂
Did Apple drop the ball on their new release of the iphone 4s?
I think this post will deviate slightly from my normal and onto my other passion. Technology! I own a blackberry aka my crackberry and even I was excited about the impending release of the iPhone 5. I couldn’t wait and I became caught up in all the speculation of the cool new things it could do. I kept abreast of the latest news on gadget websites and I just couldn’t wait for it to come out. So when it was delayed, and delayed I began to wonder what was up. Are they going to release the iPhone 5? Whats the hold up and is it going to live up to all this expectation?
On October 3rd I came across an article on yahoo.ca that suggested the iPhone 5 was not going to be released but rather the iPhone 4S. I read it and wondered if this could be a valid assumption. Something deep down inside said it might be because of all these delays. But my heart was set on the iPhone 5 and since I am already 4 months into the last year of my contract I was hoping I could use the new iPhone 5 release as the final push to switch sides and jump ship. Sorry blackberry users – I love my blackberry but I’ve been feeling the pull and lull of the iPhone for some time and blackberry hasn’t come out with any new phones that has placed it in a competitive postion in the Apple and Android market.
Well I bet RIM was screaming shouts of joy October 4th when the news broke that the iPhone 5 was not being released but rather the iPhone 4S. Now to be fair, the 4S is lightening faster then the iPhone 4 but its not an iPhone 5 which is what everyone has been waiting for with baited breath all this time. I felt a bit let down and led on myself even if some of it was self induced. The disappointment could be read on many techno blogs as people voiced what they felt was a huge build up and sore let down. In fact, it was the first time they felt that way since the iPhone made its first debut.
So now I wonder, when my contract is up in July will there be another generation of iPhone that I can purchase? Or will RIM produce a phone that can comptetively compete with the Android’s and iPhone markets.
What kind of phone do you have? An iPhone? Android? or Blackberry?
I had a spider in my car!
(At time I wrote this post I was sitting in a parking lot waiting outside of a grocery store – Enjoy!).
There’s a white spider currently walking up the side of the passenger seat in my car. I know I’m not crazy. Its pretty big. If I try to usher it onto a my key strap (to kick it out of my car) it runs for dear life (and I scream for mine) but that doesn’t stop it from coming back and sitting in my car (like right now and I turn to the right and there it is staring at me). I think I’m brave for even trying considering I’m afraid of spiders!
I’m standing outside my car thinking about my hair and the possibility it will go on my sweater sitting on the back seat. I don’t want this spider to crawl into my hair out of curiosity and I, driving along have no idea its there. It seems to be afraid of me yet it won’t leave my car! I love my car too but damn! I just want it to go away! Help!!!!
My mom comes out the grocery store, found it and ushers it out. Wuss? Yea I know! But Bronze doesn’t do spiders and I tried as feeble as it was (I think my scream helped send it running now that I look back on it) to get it out on my own! Nope! Sorry! And yes I called her over to get it out and yes I waited outside the car (it was breezy out there but safe) while she “escorted it out” too. That’s what moms do, they are used to the gross stuff like this! I HATE bugs!! One day when I have a daughter I will do the same…I hope! Actually I’ll probably just get my husband to do it *smiles* lol
Either way Thank God Mr. Spider is out and here’s to hoping it never returns!!!! LoL
Cheers to that!
Today was a day of flirting.
I flirted with the cute Puerto Rican guy who stopped to ask me “directions” to a restaurant that was right in front of him. Then he proceeds to ask me if I am Dominican which I deny. I have been asked by a lot of people before which is cool. I am proud of my ethnicity and I have no problems denying being something I am not. LOL I thought to myself, “wow, what am I going to say when I finally become fluent in Spanish lol”.
D43 came in today, for God know’s what, talked with the business manager than left. He later sent me a text message complimenting me on how nice he thought I looked in pink. I said thank you and left it at that. Moving along….
Later on today, I had to go to head office and go to the filing room all the way in the basement to get some files for the controller. No biggie. Problem is, the box I needed was about 3 shelves up and from a health and safety standpoint wouldn’t have been the wisest decision to try to climb the shelves in a skirt and heels so I went upstairs and looked for an “able bodied strong man” to do it for me. I found him in the form of a tall good-looking porter. I forget his name right now because I was lost in his pretty hazel eyes. So I put on my best damsel in distress and flirted it up while I asked him if he could come downstairs with me and take that “heavy box” down off the shelf for me. He obliged, even though he was just about to go on lunch. *smiles*
So he came with me, all the way down there, and in the dark filing room. I did note that he closed the door behind him even though he didn’t have to. *smiles*. And he took the heavy box down which turned out to actually be heavy and held it for me while I rummaged through it to find the file. So strong! Then he replaced it and walked back with me upstairs. We stopped briefly as he randomly shown me something that really didn’t need to be shown to me and then he explained it to me even though he really didn’t have to. I was flattered. He was cute and I enjoyed the interaction very much! lol
That concluded my day of flirting. I think the highlight was definitely the porter who graciously helping me with that box. He’s taller than me, sexy, nice eyes, nice body and great smile not to mention it was fun flirting a little bit with him. I could see him crumbling under my spell. LOL Kinda like I was glamouring him or something (if you’ve ever watched True Blood you will know what I mean by that).
I think I should have another day of flirting tomorrow 🙂 What do you think?
LOL Talk to you all later !!
My tooth is back with a vengence and really started hurting mid afternoon. So I took a nap today to help my pain meds out. My face still hurts so I think this might be my last post for the day.
Talk to you guys later
