One of our fellow bloggers will be on Good Morning America talking about cyberstalking. She will be talking about her own experience with a stalker.

Just a quick note, Kat is a great person and for anyone to ever, ever stalk her totally messed with the wrong person. This is what happens, justice will be served my friends.

Wow that was weird.

As usual, I always check my blogroll to see how everyone is doing. Well when I came across Kat's site it was like deja vue when she had posted about Kathy Sierra and the stalker. Because of the bullshit hell she went thru it was absolutely terrible. I felt terrible for Kat. I mean, it looked as if a Idiot of a Man would pick on a Single Mom trying to do her best even though the way her life was thrown at her with her health problems. It really pissed me off. From the outside looking in it was like watching a Football player picking on the waterboy. So many times I wanted to say, lets harass this person who is stalking her and see how he likes it. But why be childish when all it does is makes you look even more stupid yourself. And to stoop to that level, it wasn't me or any other female/male blogger that has been stalked.

Why can't people just be nice.

I was on the MSNBC page when I came across a news link on Death Threats of a fellow female blogger named Kathy Sierra. I can't believe the ignorance of someone to threaten someone online. Why did this person do this? I really would like to know. I was sicken to find her blog and totally sit here in shock over what was said to her. With the world these days and how sick people are, I am glad she is taking a stand in getting this sicko put away. I hope she stays safe and that justice is served on this idiot. I am sorry to say that but for someone to threaten and kill someone is outright crazy. I know this isn't the first time this has happened to anyone, another fellow blogger has had this awful stalker.

Stay safe ladies!!!

I am beat.

I've been working my tail off for the past week or so. With the weather getting hotter its only gonna get worse. That's the sucky part. We got another truck in last night with 25 racks of plants. I think we knocked out half of them today. And I was informed we are getting 13 plant trucks this week. No Sure we can handle that. I will survive it will only get better. I promise myself.

Nascar Sunday.

Yep, watched the race as usual. But before I did that I played outside in the yard for a bit. See we have this flowerbed that really needed a makeover. So I went out, took a before picture. Dug up all the old stuff, tilled the dirt. Layed the bricks back down and added some new mulch. The cool part is. I only paid $2.49 for both bags of mulch. So that is all it cost me to redo the flower bed. Sweet!!!!

I said it once, I will say it again...

How much worse can my day get? Let me tell you. My morning started off bad, when I got my drink from Burger King, they gave me freaking diet pop. YUCK!!!! So I called and complained as they always mess up my order anyhow. Well. Then at work we are so busy with plants arriving that we are so backed up. And we keep getting trucks in that aren't on the roster. Well, we decided to take a quick lunch, and low and behold my freaking van won't start. WTF? Its a flaw in Dodge Caravans and TnC Vans something with the ignition. Thank goodness my Brother lives in town that he stopped and said something about my steering wheel having too much pressure. Umm no, I know the problem something with the key itself. Well anyway he got it to start and my Dad came up and got me, took me back down to get my van and it did it again. POS!!!! Oh I forgot about lunch, they messed up my order TWICE. How difficult is it to make a bean and cheese burrito?? I mean seriously. Right now my van is out front. I am afraid to touch it.

Tomorrow, is going to be a good day. I don't care, I will make it a good day. Even if it fucking kills me.

Have you ever wished you could go back in time?

I do. Right at this moment I wish I still lived up in Rockford. I loved it up there. Even though my family was miles away, I was happy. Its a huge city. But a city that I enjoyed and had fun in. So much to do, so close to Wisconsin, Chicago and Six Flags. I miss being on the Fire Dept. too. My old job was awesome. I miss that even more because it was a easy job and I made damn good money too. I have since gone down hill in the money dept. But I am at least trying.

I think I am going to head off to bed cause me fingers are numb...and hurting.

I am hoping...

For a miracle. That maybe just maybe that I will win the lottery that I never I have given up on pop and I am having a hard time coping with my loss. Its like I lost my best friend. You know that one that has been there for you. Stood by you thru tough times, been your moral (Fat) support. Well, I will make it thru this. I know I will..I know I will.

We went to the Y today again, its good exercise. I love swimming. I hope this boosts my weight loss....

Its cold, wet and blah today.

Yes I am here on break. We got all the carts out this morning that were up in the store front. Then decided with the weather being so crappy, we are taking the rest of the day off. So I ran to Walmart and grabbed some kitty food and kitty litter. Came home fed the babies, they are content again. Now just waiting for Alysia to get here so we can run to the Y for a little R&R. I did a little cleaning here, like all the cat litter I spilled in the hallway....grrrr. Oh I forgot to tell ya, my baby girl Callie is PREGNANT. Yep....gonna be a Mom. She was tiny, now she looks healthy. Ya know?

Home and not happy.

I get to work, and its like someone said. "Hey, they got flowers in lets go mess it all up!" I am not kidding you. I think some people have radar and know when we get flowers. I don't mind being busy and all, just would like some damn help. My lower back is kicking my you know what at the moment. I did so much it was unbelievable. Tomorrow, I am taking it easy.

I want to say HI to couple of people and hope they are having a better day than me. Hi Gina and Jill, you guys are so sweet!!!

My Scary Bridge.

A while back I took a picture of the top of the bridge, the I-74 Bridge to be exact. I hate that bridge with a passion. But its rare to actually stop on the bridge itself. It moves very fast, well it was obvious there was an accident ahead so I grabbed my camera and took advantage of the bridge. It has great beauty So here is my pic, enjoy.

When it comes to my Son....don't mess with me.

Yes I am talking to the Father of my Son. I hope you never read this as, I am not going to feel guilty about what I did today. Actually it made me feel so much better as its sweet revenge. When you sit there and brag about how much your brought home in a weeks time and about a Cruise your taking in the fall, YET your $1627 behind in child support????? Hooo hummm. Seven years I took this crap. My Son deserves so much more. And today, I made the phone call that changed everything for his happy little family. He is applying for a passport for his cruise....stupid...your DENIED. Until your paid in full. Yep, I don't feel bad for you. Its already in the works, and now they are going after your drivers license. And, and...your Journeymans Card. WOW. There is no excuse for him to be that behind. Seriously dude, if the tables were turned he would be after every penny possible and then some. As for him trying to get Jonathan to move in with him, that is seriously funny. That will NEVER happen. I can't wait to see what happens once he finds out about his passport. Ahhh darn, poor honeymoon plans are kaput. Oh well, Karma is a bitch. Here I am working my ass off, getting no public assistance, and barely making it. He sits there and brags about how much money he makes. Well, that is ok. I might sound like a money hungry greedy bitch, I really don't care. Its when someone brags about money, and being as behind, then trying to talk about taking my Son away from me is when the Mother instinct kicks in and I get into defensive mode. When his Father called me tonight, I laid into him on how I didn't appreciate her asking MY Son to move in with them. He goes, oh she was probably joking. Well I don't take jokes when it comes to MY Son. She don't know me and frankly, she doesn't want to know me. I am going to get a copy of my divorce decree and highlight the child arrangements to remind him that I have SOLE custody. I insisted on joint but the Judge said otherwise since he didn't even show up to court. Hello? Yeah, it was hard. I did love him, and of course he wasn't there as usual.

For all the Mothers out there who are due Child Support per Court Orders, keep in contact with the State Agency that handles it. Its amazing what can be done with that Court Order. If you don't have a court order, you can go thru your State to find out the process and get the help without cost for your child/children. That is what Child Support is for. It is suppose to help out in their clothing needs, housing costs, medical costs, and food for the children.

I am getting my garden ready...

And planted some seeds directly on the ground. I pulled some seeds from some of my flowers last year and threw them down. I am hoping they grow. They are Moss Roses, very pretty flowers when they are blooming. I tilled up the garden itself, so I can plant the radishes, green onions and cilantro. We are getting tomato plants in on Thursday so I am going to buy two plants this year. I am leaning towards more organic foods from my own garden. I am not the skinniest person but I sure am eating healthier than before. We are eliminating Pop out of our diets, its gonna be hard but I want to lose the weight and be healthy. I am wanting to avoid surgery on my wrists for the carpal tunnel. Well I am going to rest now, I've been on the go since 8am.

I had a busy day.

And tomorrow is going to be worse. I prepared myself for tomorrow. With it being so cold for the past two weeks, we have lost a majority of our plants. It was expected. So now tomorrow we are getting in a large shipment of annuals. I am stoked man, Stoked I say. We are excited, the boss came in today and said it looked great in our store. Our hours went up, so that is even better. We now have 80 hours per store. Whoot!!! I've been sharing my hours, so now I can get more and more and more.

I really am here ...

Just haven't posted in a day or two due to the fact things are hectic as crap here. Not going into detail as I don't want to share this part of my life with everyone.

I guess when push comes to shove, the shoving always wins. Well, with the way things are with my Son and his Father. I am going to be the one shoving, how dare his "Fiancee" ask my Son to move in with them. HOW THE HELL? What right does she have to ask that? She doesn't know me, or MY SON. She doesn't know what she is getting into with me on asking MY Son. The one I gave birth too, the one I live my life for everyday, the one that I love to no end. She started this fire and I am going to put it out. I don't trust her or him anymore. Frankly, its time for this Momma to show who's boss in the fight. I sent a letter to Child Support about getting it raised. I am also writing a letter on the lies he told me about when he filled out his paperwork. I mean who spends $600 a month on entertainment and only $284 on Child Support??? I mean seriously. He brags about how much money he makes yet, I have never ever raised his child support. Oh and he had to call and brag about a Cruise he is taking this fall. Well if it works out, I will have a stop on his Passport for failure to pay child support. Yes this woman is going to be super bitch. I am also going to have a thing put on his Credit Report and his Drivers License. Since it is all thru the State, and a court order its time for me to step up and be a Mom. I am going to hate myself for doing it but I don't care. I want him to know what its like to suffer. Tomorrow is going to be a important day for me, its payback time. And technically, his Father is breaking the court order he isn't allowed to leave the state with our Son and he done moved to Iowa. Hmmmm. I think I am going to send him an email to let him know that Until he is caught up on Child Support he can kiss my ass on seeing his Son. I spend every dime on my Son, I pay high gas prices to get him to school and yet he pays a measly $66 a week while he is making $26 an hour. Pffft. I hope by weeks end, I will have a solution on his Father and I will get my way. That is being caught up on Child Support.

I am not with it tonight, I did however surf thru some blogs tonight. I noticed on Jill's blog she linked me but I am not sure how to do it. Jill if you read this...what do I do? lol. Your such a sweetheart!!!

I am wishing Mother Nature would get up off her lazy butt and turn the air off. We need some heat...OUTSIDE.
This is my good luck picture for warm weather!!!

Forgot to say HI.

Hi Werner,

I sure hope you guys are warm and safe in Chicago. With this crazy weather its unbelieveable how cold it is. I sure do miss you coming around like you did, but its wonderful that you have Meghan now. Every time we go across the I-74 bridge, it takes me back to the night we all went haunted housing and you sped so fast across that bridge. I mean I think about it every time. No joke. Well anyway, I just wanted to say HI. And hope you also had a great Easter Weekend, and for this weekend coming up, hope its all good.

Miss you much,

Christie and Jonathan

PS. For everyone else....nevermind this

We are to get some snow...grrrrr.

The forecasted snow amount was 5-7 inches. I hate snow right now. Its interrupting my job. Today we had to moved all the tulips off the carts they were one because being in the greenhouse, they were growing like mad cow disease. And I got wet today so I have a strange strange feeling I am going to get sick. I had the chills earlier, and my tummy is queasy. So I think I am going to take my medicine for my hands and head to bed. Gotta go wear my Got the Billy Idol look going on.

Not sure if I said anything yet but.

I have been having problems with my hands for about 3 weeks. It was getting to the point where I couldn't wash my own hair or brush it. I couldn't drive, and basically felt paralyzed. So I made an appt. with the ortho doc. yesterday. I went and sure enough it is Carpal Tunnel. I have to wear these braces for 4 weeks and take anti-inflammatory medicine. If its not better by then, then I make a appt. with the surgeon to discuss the surgery to correct it. It really sucks to wear the braces at night.

Onto another subject at hand, its been really cold here. And this time of year usually its not as cold and haven't lost as many plants. At work is another story. We have to go thru the plants and sort out the dead ones. They were all on pallets but left outside the first night and you can see the damage now. Can someone send us some warmth?

Whatcha think of my cupcakes?

Its about time.

Since the tragic death of Anna Nicole Smith a couple months back, its been nonstop drama on who the baby daddy was or is. Today, justice was served to Larry Birkhead...he will finally get his little girl. My hats are off to him, as he has been quiet but not so quiet on financial matters, all he's wanted was his daughter. Can you blame him? May Anna Nicole rest in peace finally.

Happy Easter!!!

With today being Easter, its all about Family. I hope that everyone had a wonderful day today. I know I did. Its been a long time since both my Grandparents have all been together as one. It was a surreal moment looking down the table and seeing my family all together. It was me, Jonathan, Mike, My Brother, Both my Sisters, My Parents, 2 of my nieces and 2 of my nephews and My Grandma and Grandparents. Oh and Josh one of my Sisters Hubby. I couldn't help myself and cry when I saw everyone. Cause I know what both my Grandma and Grandparents have been thru, and being thisclose to death. I thank my lucky stars.

On another note, I just got a shock. My Son comes out of his room and says. Mom, I can't get my TV to turn off. To my surprise his TV is sitting in water. OH I am sooooooo pissed at this moment. He blamed the cat, I said NO. That he should not of had anything in this room. So I had Mike take the TV out, I am going to let it dry. Hopefully it still works. Otherwise, this little girl is going on a rampage. I did punish Jonathan tonight with the most ultimate punishment. He knows now that life is going to be rough without a TV, NO video games, NOTHING. I told him that if its broke, that he is going to repay me back. He had the nicest TV in the house, a flat screen at that. So now...I am fuming. I give up. I just wanna leave and never come back.

My Customized Temp. Reader.

Here is my customized Temp. Reader...what do you think?

Tried to watch Happy Feet.

But I fell asleep and woke up in intense pain in my left arm. Actually in both arms, I can't sleep on the couch for some reason. My hands are still going numb and tingling. It hurts soooooooo bad. I've tried chiro care but its not working so I guess I am going to have to break down and go see a doc. I have people telling me its carpal tunnal but I don't know how. Or why? I can't hold a simple fork anymore, cut anything, use scissors, and the worst part is. Its hard for me to drive. I feel crippled. Monday I am calling the ortho doc to see if I can get an appt. this week. I need some relief because its getting worse.

Ya know how most Vans have the temp. thingy on the roof inside the vans. Well my Van doesnt have one, so I installed one myself. I just love it. Check out the pic above to

Going to Build A Bear today....whoot.

Mike's daughter still has her gift certificate from Christmas and has been waiting patiently to go. So we are going there now as we speak.

**Updated** She got a Pink Bear and named it Cupcake, its soooo pretty and soft. See the pic? She bought it with her birthday money and was estatic. If you notice in the picture, she is wearing a Pink Camoflauge SwimSuit. Its soooo cute.

I went and did something crazy.

Yep, I have been thinking about it for months. I really can't afford to get my hair cut, so one day while online I came across a $10 gift certificate for Regis. Well I went yesterday and had 6 inches cut off. Its been over 5 years since my last "Real" hair cut. And the only person that knows is my boyfriend. Oh well, it will be a surprise. Well off to see the wizard, I will post pictures of my haircut later. Right now its wet.
