I love Nascar so much!

But this last Sunday they had a good question for all of the pit crew chiefs and why most of them are going bald. They mentioned they need to find a cure for hair loss so these guys wouldn't be scratching their heads all the time and causing bald spots. I just thought it was really cute that they thought of this.

Then they showed about 90% of the guys, and they all have the same male pattern baldness. I say its stress would be the cause, eliminate the stress and there's your cure for hair loss..lol.

Happy Birthday Dawn!!!

Today is one of my Best Friend's Birthday...I am not there to share it with her, but I know she has one amazing family!! Happy Birthday dear friend!!

Before the day is over.

I have to call and get my insurance changed. It seems my auto insurance is now doubled. I am not very happy about that, I may get a life insurance rate quote as well. I want to make sure that we are set here. I don't want to stress if something happens to me and my Son is having to come up with money for me. People really need to look into their life insurance policies and make sure its enough. Also make sure that you get what you pay for. I cannot stress that enough.

Anyways, gonna lay down for a bit. My Son will be home after 3pm. Still not used to the time difference.

The best thing!

Is our new place!! Its amazing how everything was redone in here, new carpet, new appliances, new bathrooms and new flooring. I wasn't used to that at my last place. You know when a landlord appreciates his property and how well he takes care of it. My last landlord, just didn't want to do anything to make it better for us there. It was so cold inside that house during the winter months. I hated every minute in that house. Our place here, is so much more spacious and I love it. He told us that he redone the bathrooms here except the tubs/showers and even put in a new Toto toilet. I can't express enough how much I love it here. I wish my parents were here to enjoy it with me.

Okay, not feeling good.

I don't know what it is, but I ate some leftovers and now its not sitting well in my stomach. So I'm gonna sit here and watch reruns of Las Vegas.

Watchin' a crime show yesterday.

Isn't it amazing how they find clues to certain vehicles or clothes to who the suspects are. Like how found this Symbol LS2208 on the back of a panel, that lead to the crime suspect. And it was a smart part. A regular person like myself without proper training would never of known that.

But anyway, I am watching a movie Jawbreaker for a few minutes. I never really got into this one but maybe they should of done a better job of investigating into crimes on this one. Well back to the grind of getting this place cleaned up before the boys come home.

Miss my DirecTv.

I really wish we had it back. I am not a very big fan of the cable company that we currently have. Its hard to figure out the channels and where my shows are on. I guess its gonna take some time getting used to. I'm still getting used to all the stores and stuff around here.

When the time comes.

I want to get married again. It will be my second time for the both of us. He had a wedding, I had the court house. I had the reception, he didn't. So we want to make the most of it. I want to purchase some bridesmaid gifts because I know it will be both of my Sisters, then of course a couple of my closest friends standing up there for me. But then again, I don't know if I am ready or not to make another commitment. I guess having been through my first marriage and the crap I went through. Just not sure if I am ready or not.

To do list.

Today and tomorrow I have to myself. I've been wanting some time alone for awhile now and finally I have it. So I am organizing the closets since everything just got thrown in there. I know we are going to be having company this Summer and I want to make sure my house is spic and span. I am looking forward to the company. I miss my family like crazy.

Caught me off guard.

At the race on Saturday, it seems everyone comes out of the woodwork to come to these races. What really caught me off guard was these two guys wearing equestrian clothing and I asked myself. Okay, where are their horses? Seriously! But I keep forgetting that this is the desert and there is so much going on here. And yes, people ride their horses here in the city. Just like I'm still not used to seeing chickens in people's yards. Especially in the middle of the city. I'm used to back home where all that was out in the country. Here there is no country. Its cactus's and sand. Oh and dust nadoes.

So much as happened.

We went to our first Nascar race this past Saturday here in Phoenix, AZ. I simply loved it!! I really, really wish there was a way to get more involved in it. The roar of the cars gave me chills like no other. I am already looking forward to the next race here in November.

Tomorrow at the store.

I think I am going to go look for some natural diet supplements and see if there is anything that help me along in my journey to lose this excess body weight that I've been carrying around with me for the past 12 years. I want to be healthy for me and for my Son. I want him to be proud of me. I don't want his friends making fun of me. We have been walking a lot in a local park here that is a mountain. Its not a very big mountain but its big enough to wear my butt out.

Wishing you a Happy Easter.

I want to wish all my friends and family a Happy Easter! I won't be with my family this Easter, so I am cherishing the memories from last year and going to print out some pictures.

Just came from the store.

Let me tell you, it was a mess of a store tonight. This was the first store that I walked into with a Police Officer right inside the door. Are you serious? Every other store like this one has been really clean with no problems. After walking thru the store and buying our stuff, after reading some dermitage reviews we walked outside and almost got hit by a car. This girl was mad about something and I stopped right in front of her, put my hands up with my keys in them was so close to throwing them at her. She needs to slow her butt down.

I love TLC.

We are watching the Police Women of Maricopa County. Its about women here where I live that showcases that you don't mess with them, that they are just as tough as the men. This show is so interesting cause we are learning how the people are...tonights was pretty funny.

Since we moved.

I've seen some things out here that I haven't seen in years. Like restaurants and household products. Earlier today I seen some phisoderm and all I remember seeing are those commercials with the women washing their faces when I saw it. And then seeing the commercial for a carpet place that is no longer in business back home, I already knew the theme song.

Well tonight we went and got something to eat, so far its not agreeing with me. We went to this place before but tonight, my tummy is causing me issues. I feel sick. The customer service was awful and we probably won't go back.

I'm addicted to Ellen.

And I don't know why. But on today's show she is in Orlando and she has Portia there with her. And today, you can tell that she truly loves Ellen. I love seeing people in love. Makes me feel good.

You see all kinds.

Being out here, you see all kinds of cultures and other people. There are a ton of different backgrounds out here. But I guess the thing that surprises me the most is how people smoke outside. I seen this older gentlemen sitting down on a bench waiting for the bus or something and he was smoking these perdomo cigars and I questioned if it was cuban or not. I really don't know the difference in cigars. But just wasn't expecting it at that moment especially in the middle of the desert..you know?

Okay that was weird.

For some reason, our cable box rebooted itself. We were watching Ellen and it just went out. Alrighty then. I don't like that. What if it was a good movie or something? I would of missed about 10 minutes of it, and that would of been it. I would have to restart it all over again to see what I missed.

What a difference a state makes.

We came from living in the Midwest with all the cold and snow, to a place where its all warm and sand. I love this, I also love how the people are here. I've seen a lot of hip hop clothing amongst the young people. And hairstyles too amongst the teen girls. Granted their heritage, these young girls are beautiful. Don't get me wrong, they are beautiful back home. But here, the young girls tease their hair really, really high, but not in the front of the head but in the back. First time I saw this girls hair, I asked myself if she had a box under all that hair cause it was shaped like a box. Wow...what a wake up call.

Things are looking up.

I have to admit, I am not well off with money. We live paycheck to paycheck. Its very rough and its been very rough for the past couple of weeks. We are still working on our portion of the rent and deposit, and in the thick of it all. Both of our unemployment ran out. Mine is done, but hopefully my Boyfriends will start back up. Until then, its been very tight with food. Today, I had an appt. with DES. For food stamps and medical. I could apply for cash, but I choose not too. Because I know there are others out there who are far worse off than I am.

Out here, I might want too.

Think about using some prevention on my skin. It seems when you are exposed to the sun, it does a lot of damage to it. SO maybe if I use Sun Block at a high SPF and then use some anti wrinkle treatment I should be good. I hope. I don't want to look really old by the time I hit 50.

Anyhow, I have to get to the store today and buy some Easter Cards for my Nieces and Nephews. Its a must for me to get this done today, I also have to ship out my Dad's straps that we used when we moved out here. So much to do and so little time. I am also waiting for the landlord to get here to fix the toilet, it keeps running water and I don't want the water bill to be high.

Wow, I am that close.

I am this close to having almost 1000 posts on here. Wow. Its taken me how long to get here? I need to start posting more, so I can make it to 2000.
