I am WAY too involved…

November 30, 2007

I can’t believe how mentally/emotionally exhausted I am!

And it has nothing to do with me and my life.

One of my fav bloggers is Katie from Roses are Red, Violets are Violet and she is in the middle of adopting a little boy.  She has been writing about this for days now…meeting with the birth parents, shopping for little things, praying to God that the mother still goes through with it, etc. 

Well, yesterday Jacob was born.  Today is the day that the birthparents sign over parental rights to Katie and her family.  It’s so stinkin’ nerve-wracking!  Even through the emotional up and down roller-coaster of adopting she has always maintained that she wants God’s will in the outcome.

Please go on over to Katie’s and spill some love on her blog.  This will be a long 24-hours for her while she waits to hear if the birthparents have signed the papers or not.  Even after they sign, she still has to wait 14 days to actually have their son in hand.

I can’t even imagine….

Boyfriend Bob

November 28, 2007

That’s right…when I was 3-4 yrs old my imaginary friend’s name was Boyfriend Bob.  He always let me ride my catepillar inch-worm rider first.  He was the best boyfriend ever!

I remembered Boyfriend Bob the other day when I overheard Gremlin talking to all his “friends”.  It sounds like he had a whole herd of ’em in his room. 

OldMan had 2 very faithful friends:  Boy (who was a boy…shocker) and Kid (who was a girl).  Boy and Kid were great companions for OldMan up through Kindergarten.  I ended up having the conversation with him about moving on from his dear friends.

Gremlin’s been playing with his friends for about 6 months now.  He has so many I had to sit down with him and write it all down:

Big kid (boy)
T.D. (girl)
T.D. Bo-bah (boy)
Bo-Bay (girl)
Gi-bah (boy, but he’s at school.  He’s also 255 yrs old and irritates people.)

Apparently, he requires a crowd.  I asked him, “Are you sure about their gender?”

“Yep…that’s what they look like.”

Oh.  Right.  Sure. 

As goofy as those names are, he never changes them and is quite adament about who is who (or whom is whom…HELLO!…I live in the Ozarks.)

Apparently I was much more simple-minded when it came to my imaginary friend.  There was only one.  He was loyal, thought the stars hung in my eyes, and treated me like a lady.  And it took me over 20 years to find another like that.  Except he’s not imaginary!

So I’m curious, who was your imaginary friend?

Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you for joining me, Bob Cheezmeister, for the More 2007 Award Show this evening!  Tonight we will be giving out 3 outstanding awards.  Due to outrageous over-time issues with our end-of-season football games, our time this evening has been shorten.  So let’s dive in!

“Thanks, Bob-a-matic!”

“Luke, that was stupid.”

“Shut up, Owen.  This isn’t about me tonight.  It’s about a very serious award.”

“Yeah, you’re right.  Folks, we get the awesome chance to give away the ‘Thank you for being my Friend’ award.  This is also given by Misty Dawn.”

“Wow…she’s really giving the love out tonight, huh Owen.”

“Do you contribute anything, Luke?”

“Absolutely!  I already peeked and saw who is winning this award and she’s hot!”

“What’s that got to do with being useful??”

“Well….I figured we could save the funny banter for another time and just get GiGi up here to get her award.”

“Luke!!!  You just gave it away!”

“Oh, Owen.  Everyone knows that GiGi was gonna win!  Geez, get your head out of the tabloids.”

“You’re funny, Luke.  If you weren’t being so funny you might have noticed that GiGi’s not here.”

“Wha….oh man.  I was kinda hoping to hook up with her for, you know, blogging advice.”

“…you’re such a loser, Luke….”

Lights are up!

November 25, 2007

Well, at least on this blog it is.  Don’t even get me started on how out of sorts I feel because of the lack of holiday deco at my IRL house!  By now my house would be decked out to the max.  This year?  We haven’t even brought the boxes down from the attic….grrrrrr.  I may have to take matters into my own hands.  Scary, ya’ll, scary.

No matter…I’ve decked my blog and had a ton o’fun doing it.  I really wanted to do the white trash redneck thing, but there were WAY too many blogs with that same idea.  What does that tell ya?? I needed to get ready for some blog changes anyway.  Stay tuned for a new look and name sometime around the first of the year.  I think the name of my blog right now is freaking too many people out.  It’s a shame really.  I was talking with ‘the Gidge’ one night and telling her some of my ideas.  She asked me a very important question, “Are you trying to attract the coffee bloggers or the bible-thumpers?”  After I laughed my bootie off I realized she was right.  There are a ton of people that fit into those two categories.  And I’m not interested in either.  I just want real people who I “get”.  And that’s ya’ll!  SO I hope you’ll give me the thumbs up on the newness after the holidays.

Of course with my new holiday cheer I had to link up over at Marie and Stacey’s non-contest-contest site.  You don’t have to do much to link up.  Shoot….you could probably grab any old picture off the net to sign up.  I don’t think they’re too picky….just the more the merrier!  (Don’t you love their little button over here to the right?….pretty creative!)

To your good health

November 20, 2007

I was tagged with a very interesting meme by Trinity.  It’s Health and Beauty Tips.

Honestly…I immediately thought of fashion, but you know?  Right now it seems, health and fashion does not go hand in hand.  Between what was already on the list and the holiday we’re celebrating this week, I thought of this tip:

Share yourself.

Nothing can make you glow more than when you give of yourself to someone in need.  Unless you’re pregnant and we won’t go there.

Maybe it’s giving special time to a child or the elderly.  Maybe you can secretly bless someone struggling.  I know this.  The best way to uplift your life is to uplift some else.
