HI! How does everyone like the new design? Lisanne did it for me. Isn’t she great? I love it so much. Johns Hopkins is having a telethon this weekend to raise money for The Children’s Center. This is where my cousin Meghan is right now. If you would like to donate you can go here or call 410-823-1065. If you can’t donate right now atleast take a look at thier website. They are a great hospital that helps so many kids. Meghan woke up and is talking and wants to go home. I haven’t heard much the past two days, but thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. She has an infection and they will be keeping her for a while. She surprised everyone when she opened her eyes.

Hi! I am alive. Three days with no updates. It has been a while since I have slacked so bad. One of the reasons is because something horrible is happening and I can’t do a thing. My cousin Meghan, a beautiful eight year old little girl is dying. She was diagnosed with Brain Cancer two years ago. This was a week after my mom got out of the hospital. Well she was operated on by world renowned surgeon Dr. Ben Carson. They thought they had removed all of the tumor and after radiation she was doing well. She was back in school and a happy seven year old. Well during one of her treatments at Johns Hopkins Hospital here in Baltimore they found that the cancer had spread to her spinal cord and was also back in her brain. her parents have taken her all over the world to any doctor who would look at her. None of this has effected her. She would tell her friends she had to run to Boston for a MRI but would be back to play by the end of the week. No matter what I write here I can’t describe this little girl. She is smart, funny, so cute! She didn’t get into the pre kindergarten in her area because she was “too advanced”. When the teacher asked her what her favorite movie was she replied “Romie and Michelle’s High School reunion”. She was four! LOL She did go to Kindergarten the next year and came home one day so mad because the kids didn’t know their bus numbers so she learned them all to help them. Then they had a unit on phone numbers and she learned the whole classes phone numbers so she could help them all again. She was a little ballerina and the year she was picked to play Tinkerbelle in the recital she was beside herself. She told me how she was “The Star”. Her part was the most important. She was a Soccer player. She even played last year when she was sick. I can’t stand feeling so helpless. Monday she was taken by ambulance to the nearest hospital to her house, she lives about an hour from Baltimore on Kent island. At the hospital in Annapolis they called for the helicopter and airlifted her to Johns Hopkins Hospital where she had emergency surgery to remove water from her brain. She has been having seizures and is in and out of consciousness. In the past month or so she has been losing feeling in her hands and feet. So now they have her hooked up to a breathing machine and are just waiting to see how things go. The doctor’s have told her parents that “They have exhausted all efforts”. That this is “The Beginning of the End”. Well this just sucks! She is a child! She has never done anything to anyone and I just can’t understand why God would do this to her, to her family. I ask you all to pray for her and for her 17 year old sister, 22 year old brother and her parents, who’s lives will never be the same without Meghan.

CRAMPS SUCK! I hate them. Last Night Greg…

CRAMPS SUCK! I hate them.

Last Night Greg and I went to our favorite place to eat. TGI Fridays. I love their Jack Daniel’s sauce. It was an hour wait so we went walking around the Harbour Center in Annapolis. We went to Bed Bath and Beyond and I got a cute pill box for my purse, pizza plates shaped like pieces of pizza, and a sparkly ice pack that you can re freeze and use in the place of ice when you hurt yourself. We also went to the Lindt chocolate store and get some truffles and to Office depot to get pens. It was a fun date. Then we had dinner and came home since it was so foggy. Again we didn’t make our comedy show. Maybe next week.

Today I spent with my Mom. We had a great day. We watched HGTV and then I made us a good dinner. Pork chops, mashed potatoes, carrots, and Green bean Casserole. Then I cleaned up and we worked on my recipe book. My Mom is writing down all her recipes for me in my own book. She is also including little notes on the bottom of all the pages. Like on the recipe for creamed carrots she put “Tell your kids carrots will make them have good eye site”. That is one thing I can’t stand. Knowing my kids will never know how great she is.

Sad:

1. sated; satisfied; weary; tired. heavy; weighty; ponderous; close; hard. dull; grave; dark; somber; — said of colors. serious; grave; sober; steadfast; not light or frivolous. affected with grief or unhappiness; cast down with affliction; downcast; gloomy; mournful. afflictive; calamitous; causing sorrow; as, a sad accident; a sad misfortune. hence, bad; naughty; troublesome; wicked.

This is the deffinition of sad. I don’t know why I feel so sad today. I went to the funneral home last night because my friend Jodi’s grandmother died. She was 93 years old. I think part of the reason I am sad is because my mom is sick today. Her back hurts so bad and she has an upset stomach and she told my sister this morning that she doesn’t think that she is gonning to last much longer. I don’t want her to die! I don’t know what I would do. I love her so much. How do people live with out a mom. She is always there for me. She is my best friend. I just am not ready to not have a mom yet. How can I get married buy a house have kids all with out a mom. How can I get a promotion at work, or ppick out an outfit to wear to party with out her. She is the best mom too. She was always the mom who drove no matter wear we were going. Always the mom who was at every soccer game or play or dance recital. She knows what size you wear and can buy you shoes or even bras with outyou there. I hate cancer! I can’t figure out why there isn’t a cure. Some times I get made at her because she has lung cancer and has smoked for 40 years. now sure she didn’t know it was bad when she started and when she had my sister and me no one told her it was bad, but she has known it was bad for the last 15 years at least. I will never smoke. I don’t think I could even marry a smoker. I don’t know how in 2003 any one would still smoke. I can’t imagine putting my kids through this. She has said 100 times if she believed something like this would happen to her, to us she would never had started smoking. But you never know. No one can see the future. God I love her!

Now I better go dry these tears and redo my hair and make up before Greg gets here. I hope this saddness passes, I am sure the fact I am PMSing and due to get my period tommorrow are not helping any!

Friday Five: 1. What is your most prized materi…

Friday Five:

1. What is your most prized material possession? My Pictures & A ring. The ring is a Diamond and Emerald ring. I was left a ugly ring when my great aunt died. It had a diamond solitaire that was like .39 carats. I never wore it cause it was UGLY. Well in 1997 my mom went to Jamaica and she bought me an emerald ring. It was a band with seven emeralds going a crossed it and a diamond on each end. I lost one of the emeralds so I couldn’t wear that an more. I had said for years I was going to have them made into one ring a big diamond in the center then three emeralds on each side and a little diamond on the end. I never did it, but unbeknownst to me my mom had Nikki steal both rings out of my room and my mom took them to a jeweler and had “my Ring” made for me for Christmas of 2001. She had just gotten sick that year and wanted to have something really special for me for Christmas. I haven’t taken it off since!

2. What item, that you currently own, have you had the longest? My old Holdie. I was brought home from the hospital in this blanket and I have slept with it every night until this Christmas when my mom had me a new Holdie made. I still have my old one.

3. Are you a packrat? I wish I could say no, but I am, just a little. Not as much as Greg is, He is the worst!

4. Do you prefer a spic-and-span clean house? Or is some clutter necessary to avoid the appearance of a museum? I prefer a neat house that looks lived in.

5. Do the rooms in your house have a theme? Or is it a mixture of knick-knacks here and there? My Basement is an underwater theme. My Kitchen and dining room is Green Ivy accented with purple. My Living room is a very interesting 1980’s style room. Teal wall, purple lamps and curtains. My Bathroom is the theme of “The Rainbow Fish” We even have framed pictures, wall paper border and the story book in there. My bed room is Purple and Light green and Nikki’s room is purple and Yellow and Rachel’s room (god daughter) is a very girly pastel room!

TGIF……..This has been the longest shortest wee…

TGIF……..This has been the longest shortest week ever! I am off to work now to finish the week! It has sucked. We have been so busy, from missing days from the snow. Nikki got back safely and we are all dug out of the snow mess! The damn city still hasn’t plowed or salted my street! I have been very disappointed at the way Baltimore City has handled this snow! I heard yesterday that the city has 108 snow plows and 84 of them are broken down. I love seeing all my tax dollars well spent. I have sent a letter to the mayor expressing my disgust on this snow removal matter. Will I hear anything back? Probally not, but I still wanted to bitch to the guy in charge!

It is snowing again! I am not kidding. I thought…

It is snowing again! I am not kidding. I thought this was over! I am not at work today! 🙂 They closed downt he MTA today and with no bus service there is no way I can get to work. Ik I am lying there is my dad, but I doubt anyone will be there and since I lost my office key I can’t get in. And anyways, I just don’t want to go…LOL My car is still covered. I think I might go and make me and Greg some scrabled eggs. We are starting to run out of food. We can probally get through today and tommorrow, but then we will be left to popcorn at water.
