Weekend Recap

Once again, I find myself on the exit lane of another weekend. This one was filled with emotion, tenderness, drinks, and laughs. It was a good time even though it started on the wrong foot.
I'm not sure what really happened to me on Thursday and Friday nights. I became an emotional whirling dervish. I was upset, unhappy and went to bed early both nights. I yelled at the person closest to me for no real good reason. The good part is he is the closest person to me and forgives me for being a mess sometimes.
Saturday and Sunday however, went by too happily and quickly. I had fun and laughs with friends I haven't seen in too long. It was really really, a good time. Sunday was spent with friends how every Sunday should be spent, drinking and watching football. The night was a blur and Monday morning met me with a great case of the black tongue (too much red wine).
I've saved the best for last. The best part of my weekend, "You're the best things that's ever happened to me".
How great is that?

So True

"Our deepest fear is not that we are Inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?"
Nelson Mandela
This quote was the discussion on my group last night. In thinking about my own fears it so much is true. It is the light, true, happy person inside myself struggling to be shown all the time. I'm getting there and this really made me think.

Feeling Sunday

I always feel sad when he leaves on Sunday. The house is always so quiet and lonely without him. The first few hours are the worst. As soon as he's turned the corner and is out of my sight, it's all so different again. Please don't get me wrong (and I've promised myself not to be sad in front of him), I'm realistic he needs to get back to work and it only temporary but I miss him.
The first couple hours are just the worst. I walk around my house and everything now suddenly reminds me of him. I wash the dishes, clean up from the night before and start doing the laundry just to keep me busy until I can call and tell him I miss him. That time has already passed today and we're talking about next week now. The best part is that he's home.
Have a great day and Go Tigers!

Go Get 'Em Tigers!


The Detroit Tigers are going to the World Series!
I grew up outside of Detroit and the Tigers have always been a constant in my life. The background of my childhood memories is Al Kaline and Tiger's baseball. The men in my family would listen to games on the radio while fixing the car, mowing the lawn, driving in the car or just sitting on the porch. It's all very familiar to me. While I'm not a huge fan, I couldn't been happier for my home town team.
Go Get 'Em Tigers!

Wings


I'm thinking about getting a new tattoo (I have four others). The image of wings keeps coming back to me and it's what I want next. These wings are very cool, but a little bigger (a lot bigger) than what I'm looking for, but I like the idea. I want something original, colorful and beautiful.

All Tire No Jack


I may be required to turn in my "independent Woman" card. Sunday morning I got in my car and started to drive and found I had a flat tire. Before you start asking the obvious questions; No, I didn't see it when I got in the car and Yes, I noticed as soon as I started driving. My friend was in the house so I told him my tire was flat and can I use your truck to get coffee (keeping my priorities intact). Later that day we walked outside so we (of course by we I mean him) could change the tire. Now, I must admit I've never changed a tire before it's just never come up in all my years of driving. I "assumed" I could do it and it wouldn't have any issues.
The car I'm driving now I've had for a little over a year. I never had the chance to check out the jack and tire iron in my truck, I just figured they were just fine and waiting for me. I was wrong. My friend opened the trunk and no jack and no tire iron but I did have a spare. We went through several questions of how, why, didn't you before he pulled the supplies from him truck. The tire was quickly changed and the lecture (very much deserved) of having the proper supplies in my truck. Yes, I know he's right.
First thing this morning I went to buy a new tire and new tire changing accessories.
