Happy Birthday to Me!

Well, I turned the big 3-0 today. Just another day to me for the most part. I went out to eat lunch with my best friend in the world, Crystal #2. We ate at a local resturaunt during her lunch break. We had a piece of blueberry cheesecake as my cake. Had a nice girl talk session. Afterwards I went and got my nails done. Then me, Chris and the kids rode to Virginia Beach and let the kids play at a park for a bit. Then we just rode until it was time for dinner. We ate dinner then I went to ride around with Cheyenne until she fell asleep. I then spent the last half hour of my birthday with the one person I wanted to spend the day with. Well, that was my big birthday.

I did get two early (and I mean early) morning texts wishing me happy birthday. One was my friend, Ashley and the other was the aforementioned special person. My own mother never called me. What a b*tch!!!

New Endings

I recently heard a quote that made a large impact on my life. It's from Carl Bard (1907 - 1978), a Scottish Theologian.

"Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending." - Carl Bard

Very few will ever realize why this quote is so meaningful to me. That of course, is my secret to keep.

But, I know someone who has a not so wonderful past. And no matter how much they want to change it, they can't. And no matter how much I want to change it for them, I can't. But, they can start from now and change their ending. Which I hope they do.

♥ My Love ♥

Has Anyone Seen My Sanity?!?!

I just returned from a lovely trip to McDonald's. What is it about a chicken nugget that fascinates kids of all ages? So here I am at the drive thru ordering 40 nuggets! Wonder what they think inside?

So in the meantime I am still reeling over the state of our judicial system.Ok, so someone gets one too many parking tickets and they, the unfortunate souls that they are, get a lovely vacation to the local jail. But someone, namely my wonderful perfect little brother, can steal from people, fraud people, use other people's credit cards - all just for a playstation 3 and some steaks - and get probation. Probation added on to the 10 years probation he already has! Where is the fairness of that? I guess the moral of this story is to steal but don't speed, right?

Now, people automatically assume I have lost my sanity when I simply say that I home school my children. Well, 2 for the time being. Now, why would I have lost my sanity over that? I would lose my sanity faster by sending my children to the sorry excuse of a school we have here and subjecting them to the BS that goes on. But, now to add to teaching my 2 oldest that are in 1st and 4th grades, as well as teaching preschool to my 2 3-year olds and taking care of my 2 9-month olds, I, myself am going back to college. That's right my friends, I am going back to school full time. I have decided that it is high time I finish what I started 12 years ago. My first plan is to get my degree in Accounting. Accountants make good money, correct? Then I also want a degree in Business Management and another in Resturaunt Management. Can we tell that my ultimate goal in life is to own my own Resturaunt. I need to go back to school for many reasons. First and foremost its high time I made something of my life. I need to be something besides Wife and Mommy. Even if they are wonderful titles, I need to get the identity of Crystal back as well. Second, I need a way to one day support myself and be able to stand on my own 2 feet. Tomorrow is not guaranteed and nothing is for certain. And third, I need something that is going to make me feel good about myself.

I am that girl......

Flowers are beautiful, but I'd rather hear that I'm beautiful. Chocolate is sweet but to me cuddling is sweeter. Jewels sparkle but seeing your love for me sparkle in your eyes is worth all the money in the world to me.

You ask yourself what are you looking for in life. A woman who loves you uncondtionally; never asks you for anything. I am that girl. A woman who looks past your mistakes and still sees the good in you. I am that girl. A woman who is proud to say that you are her man. I am that girl. A woman who notices the small things. I am that girl. A woman who chooses being with you over all material possessions. I am that girl.
