Now, I decided to stay away and take the little adventure of watching the new show Big Shots! I have to say that they have a pretty good cast. I really enjoyed the show. It had saddness, love, stupid funny,and some drama. It revolves around 4 men, their lives, family, and jobs. I can't wait to see what happens next week to be honest.
I still need to get the DVR box for my cable, not that I would've used it last night. I would only watch those 2 shows, nothing else really calls me. It seems though that Wednesday night is my big problem right now, which just seems weird. Again, I'm not usually a big TV person, but all of a sudden I am. I don't think I really watch anything on Monday, Tuesday is House for me, and then there is Wednesday, I want to watch Private Practice, Dirty Sexy Money, and Kitchen Nightmares. Then of course I have Thursday with Greys and Big Shots for now. I'm not even sure what comes on Fridays ---Hoping its Men in Trees, I just love that show. That is it for me.
Ok... I have to get myself up and moving this morning. Hope everyone has a Wonderful day and Weekend if you don't come back til' Monday.

I watched Private Practice (the spin off from Grey's) I really enjoyed it, but I have to say I missed a few tidbits here and there because I kept switching back to Fox for the Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsey! How dare they both be on at 9pm!
Then I have to say I was reluctant about viewing the new show that came on after Private Practice. It is called Dirty Sexy Money! Well.... I really was glued to the TV! I just loved it. Sutherland was terrific in this. I think I could be hooked on this one. I can't wait until next week!
Then I needed to switch over and watch Top Chef. We are down to the final 4! I was still hoping that Hung was going to be sent home, but it was not to be again! ugh. Unfortunately, Brian (sorry, if you didn't watch) was sent home. Dale actually won one finally and I was so happy for him. I'm not really sure who I want to win out of Casey and Dale, but I do know that I really don't want Hung to win.
Now to change the subject and I would like to just Thank You to everyone again for all their "Well Wishes" and Prayers. I know that we will overcome this and DJ will be back next year stronger and more determined to kick butt. I think God has a plan and hopefully it is one that will be carried out.
Ok.. I hope everyone has a Terrific Thursday!
Ok... we went to the specialist. He was very nice and very informative. I could not believe how much time he spent explaining everything to us. Danny of course was not in his element and just couldn't sit still (ladies, it gets worse when they turn 50 apparently). DJ was staring at him like he was a nut! But that is how Danny gets when he is nervous.
Anyway.... DJ does indeed have Epstein Barrs disease, which he will host for the rest of his life. Also, according to the blood work.... he had full blown Mono about 2 weeks ago and it is now leaving. Apparently, DJ can get a flair up (if that is what you want to call it) at any time. It would really flair if he is in contact with someone who is really sick even with just a flu bug. Like one of his bf's who had mono 3 weeks ago! Epstein Barr is like a parent of mono. It also goes hand and hand with any time of herpes (ie: cold sores, chicken pox, shingles) you get the picture. He will be fine in a few weeks, he just needs to take it easy. The dr thinks he is also having a very bad allergy season which can enhance the Epstein Barr, so he gave him the Z pack. DJ can get continue to get really sick and often if he doesn't take good care of himself for up to 2 years! It can take Epstein Barr 2 years to go into remission. Hopefully that won't happen and it will be much sooner.
I had to get him withdrawn from college yesterday also. It was very sad. He was upset and so was I. He has been looking so forward to this and wrestling for this school now that is over until next year. As long as he is feeling well, he is going to start up again in the spring. But wrestling season for college is over in March. Oh well.
Well, by the end of the evening I was too exhausted from all the running around (that campus is huge) that I did not do any scrapbooking. I sat and watched the first 1/2 of Dancing with the Stars (I just love that model-I think his name is Alex Reed, very cute and funny)then of course I headed over to Fox channel for my new season of HOUSE! Just gotta love him. I can't wait for next week, but I have to say that I miss old team! This is going to be something new and exciting for us all.
2 peas challenge for today: How often do you meet with friends to scrap? Do you wish it could be more? I have to say that most of normal friends do NOT scrap! I do however get together with some ladies usually once a month for a little crop which is great, but this summer I was not feeling good and soooo many things going on that I really didn't get there for probably 3 months. I couldn't wait to see everyone a few weeks ago. It was nice catching up.
Ohhh well.. I guess I need to get my behind moving here today. Have to be at work in 1 hour. The fun is just about to begin! Have a great day!

We got back DJ's blood work finally that he took on Wednesday. He has sever Ebstein Barr Disease and Mono. He is devastated. Because he just can't continue with school this semester. He is exhausted all the time. He keeps getting fevers. Its pretty bad this time to where the dr. is sending him now to an Infectious Disease dr. If any of you remember back to Christmas time last year... he just had mono. That wiped him out for 4 full weeks. And to be honest... even longer. We were trying to figure out how to get him to school and to classes, but it just won't work. He has many classes and he is just not functioning at all. This poor kid has not even gone to the gym in almost 2 weeks because he is so weak and tired. Also, very bad sore throat, and swollen glands. I keep wondering "WHY?" Why him. He is the one kid that tries so hard, works so hard and has the most determination out of all my kids. Hopefully, he will get better soon.
Hope everyone has a great day.

Ok... changing the subject now.... I have been scrapping a little lately. I'm doing about 1 page a night (notice I said about). I'm just having a little trouble journaling. As soon as I get the journaling done I will post them. I think they are pretty nice, if I do say so myself.
Well.... I've got to jump in for my shower and get to work. I got a late start this morning. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

- Growing up in my early years my parents decided to purchase 10 acres of land and move us all out to the boonies. A little town called Fort Drum which was about 40 miles away from the "Big" city Okeechobee (and you thought you had problems) The nearest school was a 40 mile hike everyday to Okeechobee. Even with all that, That is the place I really do miss. The wonderful wildness of it all. We had our own little farm which we grew our own veggies and raised our own food. We also had many pets! At one time we had 7 dogs, 13 puppies, an armadilo, 7 peacocks, and 4 horses, oh and I'm sure there was a few snakes in there also. We also had 100's of chickens, some were just for eggs and some were well for dinner. We also had our own pigs. If I could go back in time, I think it would be there. It was just so much fun.
- Since I was so young growing up on this farm and having two younger brothers (one is just 9 months younger, the other is 23 months younger) I had to be tough and my mom wouldn't let me be a normal prissy girl. YES! I was the biggest Tomboy. I would beat up all the boys and they would call me Jane (Jane of the Jungle). My brothers hated that I was always competing with them and their friends.
- I do not like driving in regular cars! I love SUV's or Conversion Vans. The higher the better. I love to look down at the little cars and I love to be able to look over and in front of most vehicles. I will say though that in my 20's I did have a normal car,several as a matter of fact, and my favorite car to this day is my Dodge Challenger!
- My best friend is Sandy, and we've been best friends since 1976 which totals up to 31 years! She lives in NC now and of course I'm here in NY. I was the first one to leave FL. I even lost her for a few years and then I found her. We know each other like a book.
- I really love to travel (even though I really haven't done much of that). My dh does not like to travel! I can't even get him to leave the house most of the time unless it is somewhere local. I would love to see Niagra Fall's and visit all the National Parks! Then I would really love to go to Europe. Its a dream right now, but who knows... maybe some day it will become a reality.
That just 5 little things you didn't know.
I hope everyone has a Terrific Thursday!

This first lo is of my wonderful niece Alley. This photo was taken right after she decided to cut off over 10 inches of her hair and donate it to Locks of Love! My niece is incredible. She really is very giving. I just love her spirit. So this is Alley sporting headbands for the first time with her new short hair style. The next lo is of ME! This is going to be the first page of my "All About Me" album. I decided I really should do one. I really think it will be fun and something exciting to do. Like I said many times before.... I don't have many photos of myself so this will be a challenge and I really don't have many of me from my youth because they were lost during a move many years ago. This is going to be a very interesting album that is for sure. I just want my kids and their kids and so on and so on... to know how I was, have a feel for things that I enjoy and love and I'm also going to put a family tree in it. Something they can look back on one day. 2 peas challenge for today: Have you every applied/submited to be on a designs team? I will be honest and say that I have never applied/ submited to any design teams! I don't feel that my work is design team material at this time. I love what I do for me and really don't care about being on a DT. Maybe one day down the road that will change, but for now, I'm very happy the way things are right now.
Hope everyone has a terrific Tuesday!
Hope everyone has a terrific day.

Jonathon, made it home safely last night and on time! Of course, he didn't call me to tell me that. I called him and said (when he answered the phone) "I guess you are ok, you answered the phone" he was like ohhh yeah I forgot to call you. I just said of course you did Jonathon, I'm only your mother. He just laughed. I said ok your alive, I'm going to bed now. Love ya. bye.
Well that is about it for me. I am trying to work on some lo's. One for the " This is me" journal blog challenge and the " All about Me" challenge. I'm looking forward to getting those finished. As soon as I do I will post them.
Hope everyone has a Wonderful Wednesday.

The movie was really good. Lot's of action, killing and a twist here and there. It really kept you on your toes. I'm not really into a lot of bloody movies with a lot of Karate and stuff like that, but this was very good. It also had some subtitles that you had to keep up with. I think I would give it a C+ grade, possibly a B-. The ending could've been a little better, but the movie was really action packed.
So, my Jonathon is going home tomorrow afternoon. I'm sad to see him go. I miss him so much, but he does have a life and really has nothing here. I'm already looking forward to hopefully getting out there in November sometime. That will be nice.
2peas challenge for today:Share something you miss having from when you were a young child growing up. I really miss a lot of things. I'm weird like that. But I truly miss talking with my grandfather. I miss him so much. He would love to talk and teach us stuff. I would always just sit there and soak it up. We were very close. My grandmother said we were glued at the hips when I was little.
I also miss my horses! Growing up in FL and on a farm we had a little bit of everything (except cows!). I miss my horses. I loved to ride, I felt free when I was on one of the horses. What do you miss???
I hope everyone has a terrific Tuesday and Hopefully I will be able to upload some of the photos from tonight.
Danny's best friend Joel and his wife Marilyn.
Me and Josephine.
Steven(dd's bf), me, Shannon, and Danny. They were doing a shot and I don't do them but they wanted me in the photo. I don't know what they were thinking.
A fun time was had by all. Once all the cooking was done and everything was out, it was a relaxing, fun evening.
Hope everyone has a great day!

So I asked him how his classes were today. Well the first one (which he missed on Tuesday due to getting lost) he sat down and it seemed like everyone got a supply list on Tuesday and everyone was prepared for class except him. What the heck. So guess what my wonderful son did. You've got it, he got up and left! This kid is going to kill me! He didn't even bother to say, excuse me, but I missed Tuesday due to an emergency or I got lost driving here, nothing. He just got up and left. The second class is English and he seemed to have no problem there. But then we come to that freakin' volleyball class (which, again, he missed on Tuesday) and he couldn't find anyone there in the assigned room. So you guessed it. He left! Instead of trying to find them, he walked to his car and came home! ugh. I think he is going to need to talk to his advisor! Like today. Thank goodness he has NO classes on Friday.
Apparently, Joseph had an ok day. As you might remember he tells me nothing. So I guess it was the same as Wednesday. I'm happy to report that I still have not gotten a call from the school asking where he is, this is a plus.
Now Shannon has taken off from work for the next few days so she can "party" with her older brother, Jonathon, who arrived from Las Vegas last night. What is this girl thinking. I swear I'm in a house full of misfits! or maybe it is me who is the misfit????? Hmmmm.... something to ponder. Well anyway, those two ended up going out after 11:30pm and didn't get home until 3:45am with McDonalds in hand.
This week has been so much fun! Can you feel the excitement??? And it is only going to get better with the little surprise party that I'm having for Danny tomorrow! Will this nightmare of a week ever end? I sure hope so. It can only start to get better I think, hope, pray. I'll try anything at this point!
I hope everyone has a terrific Friday! I've got a busy one that is for sure. I have work and then I have cooking and cleaning to do, plus finish up the grocery shopping for tomorrow. The fun just never ends, lol. Hopefully, I will have tons of photos to post by Monday.

As for Joseph's first day, I guess it went quite well. I get no information from that kid. Sometimes it's just better that way. I do know that he went to all his classes so that is a good start, but he did inform me that every other day he has study hall the period of the day and he won't be there. ugh.... When will this one finally move out of the house???? I swear if I had him first there wouldn't be any others. He is the poster child for birth control. My sister said that 16 years ago and it took her 10 years to finally decide to have child (thats because she moved away from him and didn't see him everyday, lol). I guess there is always going to be one.
Jonathon is flying in tonight at 11pm and I'm very excited. Its been 3 years since he's been home. I hope he is excited also.
Other than that,,, not too much going on here. Hope everyone has a terrific Thursday!
Tuesday, September 04, 2007
Joseph's first day of 11th grade is tomorrow. I'm not sure I will be able to get on here until late in the day because he is so difficult in the morning. I hope this year starts off better than last year! He better not goof around this year. Joseph is my kid who just doesn't care about anything! I mean nothing at all. He doesn't care if he is late or even if he makes it to class. He doesn't care if he passes or fails. This kid just doesn't care! He really needs to get back into counseling, but again... fights me everytime. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I don't get a call from the school the first day, lol.
I'm going to make this short and sweet tonight. I'm going to finish watching the US Open Tennis on the tv.
Hope everyone has an awesome Wednesday!
I, of course, want him to leave a littler earlier than I would normally leave just so he has an idea on how long it is going to take him to get there. He is going with the traffic and it is brutual. I will take him about 45 min's. I think, plus, he has no clue where the buildings are on this campus. He makes me nuts. I also wanted him to drive there this weekend so he could see what it would be like... but no... I'm dumb. He'll learn the hard way. I'm usually right.
Joseph starts school tomorrow. Ohhh boy, I can't wait to see this. He has been in rare form the last few days. He decided to runaway Saturday afternoon, but apparently broke in the house and snuck down to his room to sleep. He then got up early Sunday morning and no one saw him for over 30 hours. I didn't say a word. DH told him that we called the police and had to report him missing. He doesn't like the rules here. I told him then leave. I'm too old to put up with his crap. I did it for dd. So needless to say, he is grounded again until the Sept. 15th. I think he got off easy. That was dh's doing. If I did the grounding this time, he would've been grounded until the end of the month. He always gets off easy. He just exhausts me!
Oh well,,, I've got to go and see if DJ has everything he needs for today. Hope everyone has a great day.

There you go. I hope everyone has a terrific Holiday weekend!
