I Miss You..

I Miss You.

I don't know what happened to us.
We used to be so close.
We were inseparable.
We were soul-mates.
All I had to do was think about you and you were there..almost in an instant.

Now, I hardly see you.
I hardly even know you.
I hate it.

I feel like we're not even friends.
I feel like you've found someone else.
I feel like you don't love me anymore.
I still love you!!
I would do anything for you at any time!

Everything and everyone interferes with our chances to be together.
I toss and turn at night since you're not there with me.
It sucks.

Admit it, you've moved on, right?
You found someone else who will embrace you the way I used to. Maybe better.
People tell me about spending ALL DAY with you.
I read about it ONLINE!
It's as if they are bragging about being with you.
My life feels like Adele songs without you.

Please come back to me.
I will do my best to make time for you.
I will be the best partner EVER! Just like old times.
I promise.
Okay, so I know you know I can't promise but I will TRY!

Don't you love me anymore??

I'm begging you,

Please, SLEEP, come back to me.

I've got some work to do...

Soooo..... I promised I would try to post more frequently. We all know how my promises play out. I'm gonna do my best this time....Uh,....I promise?

Okay, so I better not do the "promise" thing. I just gonna stick with...I'm gonna try. It's gotta be good enough.

If not..tough titties.

Okay, so I know that over the Christmas Holidays my body decided I was cold and self-insulated. It's not my fault. It wasn't my decision to gain these pounds. My body has a mind all it's own.

So, like I said, I am aware of this fact.

What I don't need is people pointing it out to me.

That's exactly what happened today. Who else is gonna come straight out and tell you about the extra weight you've packed on? Who else is gonna be so brutally honest to you about it? Who has no inhibitions when it comes to letting you know how you've been slacking in the hygiene, grooming, fashion or exercise departments?

Guess who...


That's right, she decided today that it was HER job to let me know that I was "GELLIN".
Yeah, folks, and she's not talking about Dr Scholl's ...

And she definitely wasn't looking at my feet.

I'm feeling the love.

Thanks MA!

Guess I'm gonna have to head to Wal-Mart today to get a new scale.

Now, if you've read the past posts when I was dieting (many, many moons ago..) then you know I HAD a scale. I liked it to cause it Lied to me and made me think I was thin.
My scale has met an untimely demise.

One of my cats peed on it.

Yup, you read that right.

I said PEED.

I've had lots of animals throughout the years and they've all done some quirky things but this cat is new. Her name is Princess.


She's peed on my bed, peed and pooped on any article of clothing left on the floor, pooped on the dustpan that was in the kitchen floor and even went so far as to poop in the cat food bowl in the restroom.
But now my poor scale was the victim this time.


I do believe she may have some serious problems. I put the cats out so they can do their business but It's like she holds her urine and poop until she's let back in the house.

Looks like I got some serious training to do...

If I can't get this problem under control, there's gonna be a situation.

I'm just sayin...

Christmas came and went last year and at work there is only one person who likes to decorate and celebrate the way I do. Her name is Lissa. She was going on and on about how shes "The Decorator" and how she's the shit.
Well...if you know me, I'm always up for a challenge. So I tell her, "Oh YEAH? Let's have a contest". We tried to get the whole office staff of 11 people involved but everyone else, besides one other guy whose name is Roque, considered the contest unworthy of participation.


I'm on it!

I didn't get a pic of her office by the time Christmas rolled around but I can say it was/is "cute".
MINE on the other hand was "THE SHIT"!
She'd walk by my "area" (cause I really didn't have an "office" per se) and I would taunt her by saying, "Wacha think about THAT Lisssssaaaaaaa" and "Wacha got NOW, girliieeeeee?"
She would chuckle out loud but I knew she was SKERD!

So here's what I did:

Go ahead.

Say it.

I'm THA SHIT, Right!

Yeah, I know.

Now that the new year is here and Santa's job is over. I'm smart enough to know that there's no Santa in the North Pole. C'mon, a white bearded man in a shop with elves working on making toys? Who would believe that nonsense? Pfft.


Santa is actually roaming the streets of McAllen.

It's too hot for his reindeer to take him anywhere in this valley weather. This isn't exactly "winter weather" they don't like the heat. They like the arctic cold so they leave Santa to fend for himself.

Too bad, Santa, too bad.

Moving on...

So We're moving on to the next holiday which is Valentine's Day and guess what?


Here's what I got so far:

Oh yeah, Baby! Lissa is going DOWN!!!

Here I have my interior decorator putting things together for me. His name is Robert and he's THE BEST!!
(Ok, so he's not actually an interior decorator, he's there to observe so he can gain hours to apply for the PTA program but I had to put him to good use. He was getting sleepy and we can't let THAT happen.)

We'll just call him my Intern.

Anywhoooo...Lissa is getting jealous because I have help and she's looking to recruit Roque to help her. Roque has already volunteered to dress as Cupid to help her cause.
Thanks Roque, now when I think about Cupid, I get this image in my head:

Go right ahead, Lissa!

Don't make me turn Robert into a Cupid also.
Two can play that game!
This could mean W-A-R!

Tomorrow I will post a pic of HER office, Yeah, she has hanging decor but that don't mean NUTHIN!!

Like I said. It's ON!

I was just about to end this post and make it public for you guys but something happened.

As I was typing away and twirling my neck all ghetto-like while I listen to Throwback Jams on the Music Choice channel, a Tevin Campbell song came on. I was like, "Oh hell yeah!" I love me some Tevin Campbell, especially back in the day when he and I were the same age and I was CRUSHIN on him and I would pretend he was singing to me and that we were gonna get married and grow old together.
As the years went on...I sometimes still fascinated about that. (but don't tell nobody)

Anyway, I'm jammin to his song "Goodbye" and semi-dreaming of those long lost fantasies.
Now, anyone who's listened to or seen the Music Choice channels, you know they flash pics of the artist throughout their songs, right? Right.

So I'm glancing up periodically and looking at the pics of my past love. He was so HAWT back then. I was so infatuated with him and his music.
Yeah, granted, these are pics from WAAY back but he's still so cute!
As the pics went on he's getting more and more sophisticated and intellectual looking as he ages.

OK, Wait....

What is this?

What just happened there?

Did everyone just see that?

It looked like a small psychotic break happened to the poor guy. I don't understand, what happened to his boyish good looks and his trendy back-in-da-day hairstyles?



Say it isn't SO!

I'm afraid he's exploded into full on driving the white van with tinted windows around the elementary schools..trolling for the kiddies.

(What's that high pitched sound?)

Oh wait, that's ME wincing in horror.

Goodness people. It took all of my might to unclench myself from my oldest, Dom, who was sitting next to me covering his eyes and looking away.

I used to love you, Tevin, but I see what has happened to you as I have married and moved on. I couldn't wait around any longer.
(I'm hoping we never see each other again)

With that folks....I'm O-U-T!

It's time to play Catch-Up!

Alright folks, I know it's been awhile so I'm going to just point out the important stuff that's been happening lately and then we will ......
*cough, cough*...


...sorry folks, my youngest just came in the room and as I was typing I asked him to look for the remotes to my TV. He ran around the room but didn't really find anything and then tried to bolt out of here. I had to stop typing for a min cause I realized he just farted and tried to escape and leave.
What the heck was he thinking?
YOU KNOW I called him back and called him on it.

Geez, that was foul.

Ok, so..back on track.

A lot has happened over the last year.

1. I got a new job. I'm no longer working home health. I'm the head of the physical therapy department in the facility and I have 2 tech working for me. It's an awesome job and the small staff that we have are THE BEST. I have an awesome boss so what more could you ask for??

2. I've had some ups and downs with my oldest. Not really going into the details about all the drama here but I WILL say that he's turn over a new leaf (hopefully this is a long term transformation). He's an awesome kids and I love him so no matter what I'm sticking by him. He just needs to continue to be aware that if he fucks up again..there's an ass-whooping in store for him.

3. This is the saddest part of the past year. My Dad had been fighting a battle to get his health in order. He suffered a heart attack in July and was able to recover from it. He went through rehab and ultimately ended up in a Veteran's nursing home. We were preparing for him to come home but one day his battle ended in November. I love him. I miss him.

4. Angel switched jobs to a job he really enjoys doing the same thing (machine operator) unfortunately, this new job does not come with medical insurance and because he has rheumatoid arthritis, he will need coverage. He's going to have to return to his old job that he hated but has awesome coverage. It sucks and now he will have to be further away from home for longer periods of time.

5. I've continued to coach. (I can't remember if I told you about that) I've been coaching Miah's volleyball, basketball and softball teams. It's super fun and I get to yell at the kids. There's no pay because it's voluntary so I throw in the yelling as an added bonus. I haven't had any complaints from the parents and they actually request me. It's all good. Currently it's basketball I will do my best to keep you updated on that.

6) Devyn and Miah qualified to go to STATE in summer track. Devyn for the 400 M relay and high jump and Miah for shot put. They were AWESOME and I was a super proud momma! Devyn came in 4th place in his division and Miah got 14. We're going for gold this year!

I think that is about it. Like I said, this is a Catch-Up blog.

Now I'm gonna get down to business in the next post.
