These are my best buds! I'm on their side no matter what!!
Pictures of my friends... Well since I work all the time I have my friends at work...
This is a picture of us last year for Halloween...I missed out on it this year. This is a more recent photo that we took last year because we added Sarah.
Enjoy the pictures...BY THE WAY.. they are in no particular order! I just grabbed them when I saw them in my file! I have many more but we would be here uploading all day. I would give shout outs to them but again we would be here all day!!!
This is a great picture of you! I thought that you would like it!!

Day 8 A place that I have been.
Well I have been lots of places. We can talk all day about places that I have been and the things that we have seen. I personally would love to go to more places. Italy, Ireland, Hawaii, France, Eastern part of Canada, etc...
I have seen some of the most beautiful mountains, waterfalls that would take your breath away. There is a place in upstate NY that will make you feel like we ( the people) are a gnat on an ant.
There is a spot at the beach in Cherry Grove that we used to call the point. It was where you could just walk out when the tide was low to the other side and find all these different looking sea shells, hermit crabs (that weren't in a store), horseshoe crabs.. some one found a sand dollar one time.
A place is where I put some of my favorite things. I have this wooden box that holds pictures of my father, old boyfriends, letters from my Granny along with letters from my Nonna. I have a picture in there of Blake. I have to add a picture of Ken and a picture of Hank.
There is a place in my heart for things. I have a special place for Hank. When I give him his bottle that little place melts. Also, when he has real tears falling it tugs on that special place in my heart because I feel bad for him. Poor baby!
Place... the place I'm going to go to right now is the Kitchen to feed this hungry boy I have so he can sleep peacefully through the night!!!

This is day 7 of my 30 day challenge. Favorite Movies. I have a TON of favorite movies. I have so many that I could not even seriously put them all on here. I have a story of course for each and every one... The first of course every girls first is DIRTY DANCING
I went to see this movie in November 1987. I have seen it 1,000,999,001 times since. I know every line. This just happens to be one of my favorite parts.. All you have to say is "I carried a watermelon" and immediately people know what movie you are talking about.
MaWidge.. MaWidge is wut bwings us togevor.
The Marquis de Sade. WOW. If you have never seen this movie it is a must!
The Sound of Music
Yea... I know I sing the songs too. Yea I know I thought when I was 16 I was going to be just like Liesel. I loved Maria's wedding gown as much as I did Princess Diana's. I wanted a wedding just like theirs.
Oh YEAH BABY.. URBAN COWBOY
How can you not love a movie about country dancing at a run down bar with a wooden floor.. (see 15 things that I love, Day 1)
Shag I know every line to this one too. I love this move because it has to do with the beach, spring break, friends, AND it has the best music ever! Who doesn't want to go to Myrtle Beach and meet boys? Plus I know where all the shots were done for the actual movie. I have been there and stood right there where they are dancing! Awesome!
Silence of the Lambs
WHAT?? GOOD BYE HORSES.. Don't make me get that freaky song on my blog again!!
A Christmas Story I love the 24 hrs of this on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I watch it all day long no matter the part that it is on. It goes off and I watch it from the beginning again. Bumpasses...Sons of bitchessss
Officer and a Gentleman
I love a man in uniform. Whew.. This movie made me feel all squishy inside.
I hope you have enjoyed your movie ride along with me today. Stay tuned for tomorrow when I write about A place I have traveled to.

30 day Challenge day 6. A picture of something that makes me feel good. The ocean makes me feel good. My exhusband used to say that he liked going to the beach with me because I was in such a better mood. HA so true, but in reality it was him who I was miserable because of. HAHAHA Anyhoo... The beach. I think it has to do with the fact that I am a picses. The water, whether it be an ocean, or a lake, I feel happy. It is a chance for everything that is on my mind for it to drift away with the tide. Im at total peace with myself, the world, my job, my headaches anything that is on my mind, it goes away. I always wanted to live at the beach from Memorial Day to Halloween. From Thanksgiving to Easter I want to live in Colorado on a ski slope. 1 year. Thats all I would like to take off of my life is 1 year. Not now. I have a kid, and a husband. I have a new Happy. The ocean will always have my heart! Stay tunned tomorrow for Favorite Movies!!!!
30 day Challenge day 5. Siblings:
While I was here at the beach I jump on to my mothers computer and, I decided to upload a picture of my Sibling. This is my sibling Bryce and his fiance Teresa. They will be getting married on May 22, 2011. We are so very excited. My sibling and I have had very different lives. Where I went left, Bryce went straight,around a curve, up a hill and through the woods. In those woods he was in, he found out what he needed to do to get out of those woods. He has been out of the woods for 2 years. He has met a very nice young woman and we are excited to have her part of our family. They live in a nice neighborhood with no woods around.
ALSO We went to the beach today and I took little man on a photo shoot. I think he did very well. Yankees didn't do so well baby. Maybe next year!
His toesies in the water. He loved it. He said he cant wait to come down here next summer and go swimming! Cant you tell he loves it...
I "think" he is going to be a thinker.

Day 4 is talking about my Parents.
My Parents. Parents. What to write about? I have no idea. Lets see.... Bill and Doreen became my parents on March 6th. From what I can remember I had a happy childhood. When I was a teen it got a tad tricky, but nothing that they couldn't handle of course. That means I was put in my place no if's and's or but's. As I look back to those days I remember thinking "If my kid ever wants gum Im going to buy it for them." If my kid ever wants to go to the movies with friends to a 9:00 show I'm going to let them." Well.. I had a car when I was 15. I had to pay for gas. Everything else was taken care of. I had a roof over my head. I had clothes on my back and food in my belly. I cried when they wouldn't let me go to a concert in the 7th grade because I had gotten a D on a test. I was layed out across my parents bed getting a spanking from my father when I was 14 yrs old because I got caught sneaking out of the house. When I came home drunk at the beach I got punished with my hangover instead of getting tv taken away. BELIEVE me... my parents didn't let me get by easily.. Ill explain that one to you personally if you want to hear it. When I came home from Spring Break and showed my father the pictures he said " where are the other 13 pictures.? " Me: huh what are you talking about those are it... Him: No a roll of film has 26 pictures.. where are the other 13.? Instead of me being smart and say they didn't come out. I was caught in a lie and I didn't want any punishment so I showed him the other 13 pictures. Me holding cans of Budweiser wasn't that bad.. Who knew 1 case of beer would last me all week....
All in all I think my parents looking back now were pretty right on target. I don't have therapy because of them. I grew up not thinking that I get everything I want because I want it. I grew up to be a pretty stable adult. Now that I have a kid I can take what my parents did for me and do it for him. I know times have changed and the kids these days aren't like we were when we were young.. but our kid will never know the difference. Oh and he WILL NOT get gum unless I think he deserves it and if he makes a D you better bet his little arse WILL NOT go to a concert! HA
Tune in tomorrow when I talk about my siblings......

Day 3 is talking about my first love.....
First I want to start with my friend Webster. He says that Love is a strong affection for another, arising out of kinship or personal ties (2) : attraction based on sexual desire : affection and tenderness felt by lovers (3) : affection based on admiration, benevolence, or common interests.
So I have thought about this post all night and so far all day. What was I going to write about? Lets start out about 14 yrs ago..... 14 yrs ago I was sitting in front of a priest and he asked me if there was only 1 person I could ever love. I said no. Well, my husband to be said that was wrong. I should love him and only him. We had this huge fight because I said that I could love other people. We got married on September 14, 1996. Our divorce was final on October 3, 2002. I have loved again.. they actually have nothing to do with my life now so there for they aren't even worth mentioning. All I can say is I have a great love now. Ken and I got married June 13, 2009. We had a greater "Love" together on October 1, 2010. Seeing as I can love more then 1 person I think I can first love more then 1 thing...
So my "First Loves" are as follows.....
I love Love Love LOVE the beach. I get Coastal Living so that I can get decorating ideas for the Beach house I don't have. I love my camera. I love my job. I love Fall. Decorating for Fall is my favorite. I think it is because all the scents I love comes alive in the fall.... Wood burning stoves, the smell of chili on the stove when it is cold outside...Halloween!!!
There are so many more loves that I can share but the most important love that I want to share is the love that I have for the human being that MY body grew. My first husband and I divorced because I could not give him a child. It wasn't the reason we used in court BUT deep down a woman knows why. I went through countless infertility treatments. 1 year of my life that I will never get back, wasted on infertility. Was it actually wasted? who knew that 11 yrs later, I would be married and in love with someone new, and have a baby totally by chance. No infertility drugs, no nothing. just plain and simple love. I look at his hands while I feed him and he holds on to my pinkie, squeezes just so and looks at me with total trust! That I think is my FIRST Love. Although I was just an incubator for 9 months because he looks NOTHING like me.. he looks just like his daddy. That doesn't matter.. I think his daddy is HAWT! Who knows what may happen in our years to come. I can honestly say that if I ever have to love again, the man will have to be something out of a fairy tale. I think I already have the best right now and I don't see how I can ever get better then him.
Tune in to tomorrow when I talk about my parents... Oh Boy!

This is Day 2 of my 30 Day Challenge. The meaning behind my Blog Name.
Well, And you wonder why I have so many mood swings was born, after people at my work told me that I need to be on medication! SO, I was on medication and then I hated it because I didnt want to depend on a little white pill to make me somewhat balanced. I could care less of the big things in my life that happened, I cared more about why in the hell the little pot was on the bottom and the big pot was sitting on the little pot in the cabinet. I mean HELLO little pot goes in big pot so everything is organized. Geez... It took my husband who had a near death experience to tell me to lighten the &%$* up. ( I still like an organized kitchen...I just dont say anything anymore and I move the damn pot myself )
So I created my blog so that I could get some sanity. If you read older posts you will see what goes on in my little head. I especially like the August Post in 2007. Delta Airlines.. For anyone who knows me knows about that Delta post. poor Delta.. we havent taken a flight with them since.
Everything on my mind about this blog is in my head when Im in the shower. As I sit here in front of the computer, I have baby Mozart playing and the gentle sound of a baby swing I cant think of one thing to really write about the name behind my blog. So wondering about why I have so many mood swings will have to be determined at a later date... Im sure as you read you will understand my little rants and begin to laugh at them as I have learned how to do. Happy mood swing reading!
Tune in tomorrow about my first love. This one could get interesting!

This is Hank. He is the recent in our lives so there for, this is my recent picture and my introduction. We still have little sleep at night, but in the words of Darius Rucker... " It won't be like this for long " Great song. I danced with Hank this morning as I listened to it. Made me tear a bit. That is nothing I cry these days at the flush of a toliet.
15 Interesting Facts:
1. I secretly like Barry Manilow. I can belt out his tunes in the car and pretend that Im on stage with him. No one sings better then me in my car!
2. I miss my job. Im out for the next 2 months and I am going NUTS!
3. I have a wonderful Hubby who supports me and my crazy mood swings. He deals well with the tears and all the smiles!
4. I hope to be a great mother. I had a great teacher.
5. I dont go anywhere without lipstick.
6. When I read a book I sometimes read in a different voices as my characters in the book. when they yell i yell in my head of course.
7. My Husband is a sports FANATIC and has sports on all the time. OR Seinfeld, and sometimes I just want to watch Food Network. Watching it in the other room loses it for me. I like to watch TV with him.
8. I would love to have another home. Right now it does not look promising to get one.
9. When I cook in the kitchen, I pretend that Im on a cooking show.
10. I sleep on 100% cotton pillowcases. They have to be worn. they have to have a certain "feel" to them. I have a closet full of then upstairs and if there is ever a fire besides my family, I would reach for the pillowcases, my camera and my pictures. Lipstick too of course.( it is safe to say that my family will already be outside. )
11. I love my camera. I love looking through the lens and seeing life through it. If in my next life I get to choose what I want to be, I would choose photographer!
12. I love boot scooting to country music. At a run down country bar. with a wooden dance floor and the more the red neck the more I LIKE IT!
13. I wished for my husband.
14. My wish came true. I got a man with no feet!
15. 15 facts is alot... Geez Eat an apple a day.... And dont forget your carmel dipping sauce! :o)
See you tomorrow for the meaning behind my blog name...

Well flip me over and call me Cole Slaw!!
Whew I smell good. Cabbage, bra, tube top, tank top, shirt , and I still smell the cabbage. Nice.... Ken thinks I would make a great Eve with cabbage instead of Fig Leaves.
The first night with Hank at home is gladly OVER! Geez. He was stressed, I was stressed, the dogs were stressed. The second night was much better. He is used to his new surroundings now, and we have an understanding that mommy needs to rest.
My tummy is healing nicely and from what I gather the scar is good too. C section is exactly what they showed us on the TV in our parenting class. It is an easy way to give birth. BUT it is slightly harder to recover. Will I do it again? Not right now. I am very sore not on or near my incision, it is where they pushed on my tummy to get him out. Since he wasn't in the birth canal, he was not descending properly. My pelvis was not spreading for him to get out. Plus, he was face up and not face down. All in all it has been a great experience and I would not trade it for anything. I am going to put the pics in order so they will start out with me on Thursday night at the hospital and continue to the day we bring him home. Enjoy!!
Just a picture I took yesterday because it has literally taken me 3 days to get this post updated!
