I soooo love Days of Our Lives.

I am one of the biggest fans of this show. I am always looking for updates and Days of our Lives spoilers
, I don't like being in the dark on the Sammy and Lucas situation, or Bo and Hope. I've been watching this show for years, I mean years. I came across its one of the best sites I've ever seen that has my updates for Days of Our Lives. I think my favorite part of the site is the Comings and Goings of characters. I was upset when the original Shawn left and he was replaced but I went read about it and the reasons. has alot of information for the avid Days fan.

I remember the days of the characters being all back stabbing, well it still happens. But at least I know what will happen or has happened if I happen to miss my show. With me working during the day I tend to miss my favorite TV Shows, and of course Days Of Our Lives being one of them. So go check out the site and check out whats going on with your favorite soap.

I have tons to do today.

And not enough time to do it. Gotta get my Son to school. BBL.

I have been without internet for days.

Yes since Saturday night, living here in the good old Midwest the weather is unpredictable. We had one heck of a snowstorm/ice storm, whatever you want to call it. On our local newspaper QConline has some of the details. My Parents were without power til' 11:30pm last night. And as far as I know my Sister is still without power. My Grandparents live south of me, they didn't have power for over 24 hours but its back on. There are companies that started arriving late Sat. Night to help with getting our power back on. We had about a quarter size thick on all the power lines, trees and bushes. It was one of the most unbelieveable nights I have ever experienced. I had to go outside about 1 in the morning on Sunday, and it was almost as bright as day outside, very eery. We had Thunder Snow, that is cool but not good for appliances. We also had main interstates closed due to how bad the roads were. I can't believe how bad it actually got. I am still in shock along with half the city.

Its Freezing Rain...halleujah!!!

I hate this weather, its sucks. Sean and I already went out to scrape windows because Mike has to work tonight in this crap stuff. Its about an inch thick. We went and ate this morning, came back out about an half hour later and it was just caked on my Van. And its suppose to get worse. I am hoping it misses but its not looking too good.

***Internet went out*** Bad Bad weather.

Wanna FlipTrack?

If not try Fliptrack, its a tool that makes it easy for you to create music videos by adding your photos with our selection of popular music. Its a really cool tool that allows you to make videos to match lyrics and rhythm to pictures and images, like how they make for a video for music and movie soundtracks..

The Best part it is legal, yes Legal. Fliptrack has tons of Pre-licensed songs so that is the best and neat part of Fliptrack. You can also use FlipTrack to make slides for scrapbooking, slideshows and holiday greetings. Here is a link to a demo that they have on their site.

Feelin' better.

Somewhat still don't have much of a voice. I will live. I go to the Doctor where I had my Nissan Fundolipocation done in 2003. I've been having heartburn so bad its now coming back up again. So I go in March 5th at 3:30. Yay!!!!! So tomorrow I have to run to my gastro. doctor tomorrow and have my files sent over of my last scope. I have a feeling it came undone or is not as tight as before. So I guess I will see.

Do you own a business or run a online business?

I have found a site that accepts Credit Card orders online, its cool,fast and easy. Thousands of Businesses need Merchant and Credit Card Accounts AdvantageProcessors has deals with merchant accounts, credit card processors, high chargebacks, low chargebacks and they even handle Telephone orders. Having a company depends on how and when a potential customer can pay for goods. By clicking on this link you can sign up thru the Merchant sign up.

I have been searching online on how I can start accepting Credit Card payments thru a company and coming across this one gave me a sense of security. Money is a important part of a company, and if you don't make Money then you don't have a company. So go check out Advantage Processors, I am sure you won't be disappointed.

I always tell a person to do their homework when conducting business, and found this company to be reputable.

For once I am speechless.

I have no voice now. It started with a sore throat, then a sporatic cough that was deep in my throat and now I feel fine very tired but feel fine minus my voice. Its completely gone. People are looking at me funny. My friend Dawn's little girl asked what happened to my voice, I said I lost it...and she goes where? It was so priceless. Not much else going on, went to Rockford yesterday as my exFIL is in the hospital he had open heart surgery over the weekend. He is doing ok but is running a fever. Which we all know what that means. So he is doing breathing treatments to open up his lungs. Well I am going to surf some blogs and see what's going on.

I am taking a road trip Monday.

I got a phone call today from my exMIL. My exFIL is in the hospital, he had surgery today for his heart. He had 5 arteries clogged and one that was completely blocked. They did the balloon thing to open the artery, but that is all I know right now. Not sure what his condition is, I do know he's in ICU. I guess I get to break my Van in on Monday.

Now tomorrow is a BIG day for Nascar, yes I am a avid Nascar fan, WTG JIMMIE, he's the (My) man. So tomorrow is the Daytona 500, whoot. Then I get to go pick my Son up from his Dads. Yay, that's a road trip within itself. I am gonna see if anyone wants to ride with me. Its pretty lonely out there by

Lets see if I can make it thru this.

Every other weekend my Son goes to his Dad's as per our divorce agreement. So its my night to think and reflect on the previous week. Well the conversation between his Father and I was shocking. I remember very clearly him saying he will never remarry because I was a money hungry b*tch, and no man can afford me. Boy was he wrong about that one. Our wedding rings were matching bands, he never bought me a diamond whatsoever, nor did I ever ask for one. I valued money to much to ask for expensive gifts. I am sorry I look at the bigger picture here folks. If we don't have the money, why should I expect that person to buy me something that I know we can't afford. During my entire marriage I worked a full time job. I devoted my life to our marriage. We didn't have any kids, we always had money and always went shopping. I mean it was great. But then reality hit, we had a baby and our lives my case forever. No one knows what I went thru during my divorce, I mean no one. No one knows the pain, the feelings of not being loved anymore, the stress of no money for myself or our Son. I've come along way and I am proud where I am today. But when he mentioned he was engaged, it wasn't so much shocking but I held my tongue back cause I so badly wanted to say, WOW, you said you were never gonna remarry, what's up with that. But I decided not to say a word, I've always wanted him to be happy again. I know we were once happy too. I wish them the best of luck, I hope they have a wonderful marriage, I really do but if this comes to a header of him taking Jonathan away from me. Then by all means, I don't have a problem fighting fire with fire. Me, Myself I don't know if I can handle being married again. I am not ready for that commitment, I have trust issues as it is. I guess what I am saying is, some things have happened and I am not sure what I want anymore. My Boyfriends Ex is completely pissing me off. I mean come on, on the weekends my Son is at his Dads is my weekend of time off from being a parent. Why would I want to watch her kids, especially when their Dad is working, which is my Boyfriend. To have that disrespect to me, burns a hole in the rug for her. I sent her back an email stating I could NOT watch them as I am busy. If I didn't have a car payment maybe it would be different but see I do and staying home isn't going to pay the bills. This isn't the first time she has asked either. She wanted to switch weekends because her Boyfriend's Ex switched weekends, I told my BF, heck no am I changing my life for her. It don't happen like that. I guess I wish I had some time to myself to be here alone without anyone but my Son here. My Son is my life, I love him to pieces and would like for him to be happy. Right now, that isn't happening. I need a miracle.

Looking for Life, Auto and Home Insurance?

I recently bought a "Used" Vehicle and of course with the new Laws, insurance is needed. So I went online and got some quotes to get the best prices. I need Full coverage on my Car Insurance since it is a loan, I don't mind. I know my vehicle and family is covered. I feel much safer now.

I am also getting to that age to where Life insurance is the upmost important to one. I am a Mother to a Happy 9 year old and if anything were to of happened to me I want to know that my Son is taken care of and that no one has to cover my burial. I have found some great quotes online and within my budget too.

Along with Car and Life insurance, I felt the need to insure my home as well. With Home Insurance I feel secure in knowing if anything happened, I will not have to fork out tons of money to replace items or if my home was broken into. I won't have to worry about my New computer being stolen. I might not have much but having that extra security lets me sleep at night. No one knows for sure how important insurance is until a disaster, an accident or a death happens. There is that little in the back of your head saying, I should of did this, I should of did that. I feel safe knowing, I did do that.

Do your homework and with Insurance Portaonline you can be sure to get the best rates.

Valentines Day is coming!!!

My Valentinr - pookee004
Get your own valentinr

Mondays Suck.

Why? I don't know. I hate waking up, I love to sleep. But I know in this day and life that isn't going to happen. I have to pay for stuff, like my phone. I am scraping today to do that. Its bites. I am getting ready to leave here soon, just waiting for my clothes to dry. I want to find something to take for my Son's Valentines day party on Wednesday. I wish we could make cupcakes but it isn't allowed anymore. So I might go find some cookies and have him take them in or something good for the class.

Well I burned my first DVD yesterday, I wanted to make a copy of Chronicles of Narnia for my boyfriends Son, he loves that movie. Well, the program I downloaded wasn't compatible with Vista yet. I am finding that alot here with some programs already out there. Oh well I make them work But with my DVD burner it also has the Lightscribe capabilities. Its AWESOME. I love it. I burned an image onto the DVD of the Lion, its SWEET.

Not much else going on, I am running to the dungeon real quick...

My Lips hurt.

They have been so chapped its unbelieveable. I can't do anything with them, I have tried chapstick, something to help but to NO avail they are still chapped. Yesterday was Jonathan's Pinewood Derby at the Quad City Auto Show in Davenport, IA. It was pretty neat, the set up was cool. There was only two other people from his Den there. He didn't place but that is ok, he had a blast with the other Scouts. His Father came up from outside of Muscatine, IA, about an hour away to watch him race. It was a nice afternoon for Jonathan having both his parents there to support him was priceless. I am posting some pics of our afternoon in the HOT sun of the Auto Show.

What a day!

I am just sitting here thinking about how lucky I am, its hard to explain. I am in love with my New "Used" Van. Its my baby, its my love well of course next to my Son. It drives so smoooooth. I just wanna drive it all over and enjoy life. I am not used to having something so nice. I have worked hard for this, yes it has taken me alot longer than usual its because I wanted to make sure I could afford it. I am not getting child support at the moment but it really doesn't have an impact on the situation. The amount he owes me would pay off my van but when I do receive whatever I get its for Jonathan. Anyway don't want to stray from the Subject at hand. All I can say is I love my VAN.

Tuesday and Cub Scouts is cancelled.

I was hoping it was cause the weather isn't the greatest out there. Its been snowing all day. I woke up tired, again. Man oh man wish I knew why I was so tired. My lip hurts, its swollen and I think the cat scratched it during the night. I went and laid down around noon today and woke up around 3...ooops. I was a tad bit tired. Now I am going to finish watching CSI.

I have a serious headache.

I can't beat this beast in my head. Its been going on since Friday. I know alot of it is stress, but geezzz already. I took a hot bath and soaked for 15 minutes still no relief. I had a nightmare last night I am wondering if that is apart of my headache.

Congratulations to the Colts for Winning the Superbowl, it was well deserved. The Bears put up a good game in the first half but in the end, The Colts pulled themselves ahead and totally dominated the Bears. And Mr. Peyton Manning being MVP...WHOOOT!

I think we have to find one of our kitties a new home, I came home to a blood bath today from picking up my Son. Ms. Peanut head was covered in blood. I know what happened but wow. Hope no one ever gets killed here, they will question the blood in the kitchen, had to disinfect the counter top. Ewe.

Ok I can finally talk about it.

As of Friday Feb. 2, 2007. I am now the proud owner of a 98 Dodge Grand Caravan Gold in Color. I used my income tax money for it. I am sooo happy right now, it something that I feel proud of again. Usually for income tax, I go crazy and buy stuff we really need, like pots and pan, dishes, silverware, new sheets, comforters, etc. But this year we needed another vehicle. The only pitfall it was in a minor accident and only the tailgate had to be replaced and repainted. Along with the bumper. I am taking pictures tomorrow so I can post it. I also bought myself a Brand new HP computer. I like to keep up with the changing Windows platforms. I liked to learn all the new tricks and see how advanced it can be. So far I love Vista. I have 2 computers now, one I bought back in 2003 and then now. My New Computer has so much to offer, it has the Lightscribe DVD Burner, Flatscreen Monitor and its just purrrrty. Yes I enjoyed the Dell but with renting it was ridiculous and if I wanted to upgrade it would cost me even more money. I paid less for the new one with the Upgrade. Whoot!!!

For some reason my lips feel extremely dry. We have cold, cold weather outside and its horrendous. The Temp right now is -3 degrees with a windchill of -21 degrees. Why oh why does it have to be sooo cold.
