Snow shmow!

So I am sitting in the midst of a upcoming snow storm, or as the great corrupted state of Illinois is calling it, “A Snow Disaster.” I think  its all bullshit! Its 2011 people! Deal with it! It’s not gonna kill you! 20+ inches is NOTHING!

Okay… so let’s change the subject!  Music! Yes! Music!

Today I have listening to a few really good songs.

“Fuckin Perfect”  by P!nk

“Higher” by Taio Cruz and Travie McCoy

“Pose” by Daddy Yankee”

“More” by Usher

“Bon Bon” by Pitbull

Oh oh and another thing! My knee is even more f**ked up than before. I have to start wearing my knee brace full time now! It’s ridiculous! Dr. Cham’s P.A. doesn’t know what to do! Well…. time to go lay down and take a few pillz to calm down!

MOVIE TIME! What to watch?! Pans Labyrinth? I don’t know! I will figure it out! weeeeeeeee!

BEARS VS THE CHEESE

So today the CHICAGO BEARS are going to be playing the

GREEN BAY PACKERS .

We are going to be eating some CHEESE and WHINE!

I am really hoping the BEARS WIN! This will be the

3rd Super Bowl they have been to and they need to

WIN it!

So it goes without saying, “BEAR DOWN CHICAGO

BEARS! EAT SOME CHEESE AND SERVE IT WITH

WHINE!”  We can do it! Let’s do the Super Bowl

Shuffle!

 

The Quality of life matters….or does age matter? Happiness?

“The quality, not the longevity, of one’s life is what is important.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

The quality of one’s life….is it based on age, happiness, love? The quality of one’s life is the most important thing to know when a loved one passes into God’s Glorious Heaven. It doesn’t matter how long they lived…it doesn’t matter how much money they had or how happy they were. It doesn’t matter who they loved?

But what about dying? Is there a reason for death? Is it inevitable? Yes, everyone dies. No one is immortal…that we know of. Would you die for something? Take a bullet for someone or something you love? Would put yourself in the line of fire to protect someone else?

“If a man hasn’t discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said this. If you don’t have something to die for, you don’t deserve to live….. any points on this?

Tata for now!

Martin Luther King, Jr.

So I am going to start with a quote by Dr. King, Jr.

“Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college 
degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. 
A soul generated by love.”

  - Martin Luther King, Jr.
 
For those of you who were born before Dr. King, Jr’s speech, were you able to understand what he was talking about? 
Did it offend you in any way? Do you believe that history would be the same if he hadn’t taken control of racism? What 
are your thoughts?
 
 

Good friends….good times

Our friends Rachael and Kris are joining us for sandwiches and chips for dinner tonight. It will be a great night. Today we went to Gurnee to Bass Pro. I got to see the range….. it was nice. Had a good chat with Matt’s coworker Katie too. Matt and I have decided to take a trip for our 5th wedding anniversary in July. We are going to Las Vegas. It will be nice.

Another day….followed by another night….

Another day, another night….So today was sort of uneventful. I woke up, showered, and then headed out to the health department for my yearly check up… and as I turned my iPod on to put my music through the car’s speakers, my reminder came up… my appointment was at 10:00 not 10:30 like I thought. So as I made my way to the clinic, I called and asked if they would still take me. They said yes, so I made it there at 10:35….. to wait a flipping hour and a half to be called in… which was sort of ridiculous but oh well. I saw the Nurse Practitioner who was really nice, and I got my prescription for my BC pills. That was good! I need those. And I had to end up postponing my interview twice.

So then I headed home at around 12:45, got dressed, grabbed my laptop (good thing I did because it would come in handy), and headed up to McHenry. Met the director of a child care facility and had an interview. Apparently I am director qualified and teacher qualified, but my knowledge of DCFS Standards and classroom ratios is not up to snuff. I don’t think I was fit for the job anyways, but it never hurts to interview. So after that, I called my mommy in law, Diane, who is the sweetest woman I know (besides my own mommy) and asked if I could stop by and grab a couple Tylenol for a tooth ache. We chatted for a bit and she showed me what they were doing in the bathroom as far as remodeling and construction, and then home I went….Grabbed some chicken nuggets on my way out… and got home. Spent some time reading and applying for nanny jobs, and then the hubby came home. We sat in the little man’s room and chatted. Then it was time for dinner….yummmy…..pizza! Once that was done, Dad came home with Matt’s iGo tip for his phone and we are now charging it. (that’s a story in and of itself)….

Matt brought the boy upstairs for a bath and pajama time while I sat downstairs. Of course the kiddo had to go to bed….so Matt laid with him and he’s asleep now. We decided that we weren’t going to work on my DnD character tonight….too much to think about when really tired. So now it’s time for me to go lay down and watch some Grey’s Anatomy. Thank God for Comcast DVRs!

Tomorrow’s another day…let us see what happens. We have to go to Target to get some stuff for Baby Nicolosi (our upcoming niece/nephew). I think we also may head over to Bass Pro Shops so Jake can see his girlfriends and check out the fish. He loves to do that. Then stop over at the Finney’s to get our hats.

Well, its time for me to scoot. Have a pleasant night! Off to bed I go!

Running a DnD campaign

so the hubby and I decided to start running a DnD campaign with our friends Kris, Jacki, and Eric. It will be quite interesting. I am hoping to create my druid character, which at level 10, I can morph into a Rhinoceros. Sounds like fun huh? So now to spend some quality time with the man to develop my shtuff! wellll…. illlll be back!
