Happy birthday Sweetheart

Today is my darling Lauren's Birthday.
today is the day in which a new life was brought into the world.

five years and nine months ago, I went to the OBGYN and had all the blood work done and I was told I was pregnant. I had the normal pap smear done and sent off to lab. I received a call a few days later from the doctor wanting to schedule another appointment. At that appointment I had another PAP done and was told that the reason was because I had some abnormal cells.
That PAP came back worst then the one before. My doctor scheduled a biopsy that following week to be done in his office. I was terrified. When the results came back from that test, my doctor told me he was sending me to Baton Rouge to get a second opinion. I went to BR and visited with another doctor that scheduled me another biopsy for that June...I was 5 months long.
that day in the hospital be for the biopsy, fred's mom prayed for me and the baby. I have never felt such peace. The surgery went well and all of the cancer was removed from my cervix.
that night in the hospital room was scary. The nurse told me to get up and walk so that the blood would not pool. Well, I did not listen. I got up to go to the bath room around 1:30 am and Fred almost had a heart attack. There was blood everywhere. The entire floor was bright red.
I was scared from all the blood and being 5 months long that I was going to lose my baby. But all was well.

fast forward to the ultra sound in July. Mom came with me because Fred had to work and could not get off. She keep saying "your gonna have a girl I know it". I told her not to jinx it, because I kinda had my heart set on a boy. We went in the room and during the US my mom saw it was a girl. Everyone with in the office heard her scream with joy... It was going to be a girl and I was so happy it was. I am so happy she is a girl....

I will not tell you the labor/c-section story due to the fact that they are almost all the same, but today at 1:40 pm my baby girl will be 5 years old....

so happy birthday Lauren and momma thanks you from the bottom of my heart.

Great weekend

birthday Senorita Lauren
we had a great weekend.....

Friday: went to work as normal . Then to fred's sister house for Lauren/kelsey's family birthday parties. Lauren has two parties for her birthday... The food was good....Mexican...And hence the theme Lauren dressed up. So cute ....
and we watched cars till 12:30 am....

Saturday: Fred and a couple friends went to the house and cut the carport away from the main house. geez! Seeing some movement there was nice. I forgot to take pictures of those guys working. But all went well. Me and Lauren went to eat at burger king. Was nice to spend some one on one time with her. She blows my mind.....
that night we went to Wally world to shop for Sunday's party for Robert.
and got a few gifts for lauren's birthday party on the 25th.
I baked a cake for Robert and we watched little mermaid.

Sunday: for some reason I woke up with the rooster....Excited? I have no idea. We ate breakfast and went to Roberts house to watch the saints play and eat. I enjoyed spending time with the girls and we finally got to meet cougar. He is so cute. (that's what they named their son)
Lauren loved to look and play with Diego. He is only 4 months old, but she liked playing with him.

so that's it in a nut shell....Now just to wait for the mover and get busy painting and laying floors....

I hope this is a good week.....infact I will assume it will be

some of me playing

i needed a picture of me for my rolodex cards i am doing......
i hate pictures of me.

help me decide:

1 , 2 or 3

random thoughts

driving to work this morning, i was thinking.

when you get stopped by a cop, why is this question asked first.

"do you know why i stopped you?"

how with that in mind, it's a trick question. if i were stopped this morning, it could be that i did not come to a complete stop at the stop sign or i was speeding.

would it be smart to play stupid, huh, no officer why did you stop me?

just thoughts...

This weekend

Friday after work, went grocery shopping at Wally world.
finally was able to pick up pictures from the circus. Now I can scrap!

Saturday we woke up a little late, decided to go the the Celtic festival at the Civic center, that was interesting. listened to Folk music and the bagpipes. why does the sound of bagpipes make me want to cry?
then we headed over to target to see what they had there,
(i was looking for Prima flowers) they did not have anything.
when we were leaving we ran into Robert , Ana and diego.
they invited us over for steaks and to watch the McNeese game. I was so hungry: so Lauren and I talked Fred into taking us to Johnny careno's...yummy...
then off to change clothes and go visit our friends and watch the game.
sunday: did not make it to church, woke up late from staying up till 12:30 the night before. then we went to visit my dad and ms. peggy at her mom's house. it started to rain...and still is today. dad noticed a few things about my attitude and said i need to lose the grip on the house thing.
today is a new day, just keep your head up and look forward.

so that's it for today, unless hell freezes over , the rain stops the house moves it self.....what ever.

oh, just a reminder: IT's MONDAY

Wednesday, October 11, 2006

gee wizz

I am so insane right now! I have no thoughts or feelings.
is it possible to go beyond insane?
have you ever come to the breaking point?
I am not suicidal. i am just so low with this house crap.
how can a person tell you one thing and then make your life a living hell.
i talked to him today again, and i feel like my heart is going to pop out of my chest.

dear God: i come to you know in my lowest low. please answer my prayers. i just want the house moved and complete. i want to be able to wake up and not have to worry about the house. i want lauren to get her ski vacation.

a fun saturday

we took lauren to the Shriner's circus saturday. she had a blast.
she loved the clowns and got her face painted. there was this one clown with a whistle, she laughed her hinney off. she rode a pony too!

after the circus we wondered the grounds of the civic center.
we visited our local 9-11 memorial. wow! it was breath taking.
just to see and touch those beams from the world trade centers was awesome!
what a great display.
also there was a slab of limestome , i think, from the pentagon.

then we took lauren down to the shell beach drive to see all the big houses.

she wanted mcalister's deli. so that's what we ate.

it was nice to take a break from worring about the house and just spend time
with my two lovers


I am so sick of the house mover!

this has been the things going on this last few days.

I was told Oct 3rd, the beams will be placed Thursday the 5th, jack up and ready to go on Friday the 6th. Moved on the 7th!

well, I torture my self everyday by driving in front of the house!

Thursday: I called "dork" and chewed ass out about not a damn thing being done.

Friday: chewed more ass! What the hell is going on?

Saturday: got back from town. Called chewing ass out on his voice mail.

that afternoon this guy, we shall call him DICK, called me a said he has been hired by the dork to move the house and he would like to meet with us to go over some minor things.
ok no big deal to me. Let's GO!
so he calls me Sunday at 1:00 pm and says he will meet us at the house at 5:30 pm.

....We get there at 5:20......Not a soul ....At 5:45 I call and leave a message, I am here where are you?..at 6:00 leave another message...........I know you are going to stand me up. I will be here till 6:30.......................... at 6:20 I call leave the final message........"You are a liar and cheated crook. "F" you!"

bastards! I felt like a 15 year old girl being stood up on a first date.

so I call him Monday morning and chewed his ass out yet again.
I really can not believe he is even able to sit down.

I called him nd spoke to him last night.
you have 24 hours from 9:00pm. To give me the money back, 5000.00 or a go to the lawyer and get not only the 5000.00, but the 1900.00 for late fees and 2500.00 for atty fees!

that's it in a nut shell.

38 days past due!

I was watching nick last night with Lauren and they were talking about Hispanic heritage month....What?

when did this come about?
why is it ?
I don't see an American heritage month?

why should we conform to other heritages? This is American and I know there is freedom here unlike elsewhere, but come on. I don't think I could go to south America or Mexico and rant about not having an American heritage month!

what are we going to have a Arabic heritage month next? Why not push the envelope and have a terrorist week? Or a remember Saddam birthday celebration?

I feel that we the people of America need to step up and make a stand.

I am all for my daughter learning about other heritages, but I don't want it to take over her learning about American history and where she came from , KWIM?

sorry for the rant. I feel better now. LOL

Monday, September 25, 2006

Hey dude!

have a great day mr mover. i am watching you.....beware

Horoscope for the day

Aquarius: Lighten up and be tolerant.

Tuesday, September 05, 2006

Update : still fuming

Ok update from Friday...

first off , I went out of this world with the message I left the house mover Friday.
yes I felt bad about the message left , but on the other hand I feel like he had it coming.

so Friday afternoon, once I got off work I went on a man hunt. I tracked him down and asked him why did he say he had insurance and did not? Well, he gave me the wrong policy to star off with. (I felt like a heel) :-(

so we talked and he said he would start on Monday. 9-4-2006

well, Saturday Fred and I went to lowe's , home depot and stine's to get materials to remodel the kitchen and paint for the living room, dining and kitchen. (geez, all that came out of our pocket)

then to Sunday, went to church.( I really needed that) :-)

after church, we went to eat and after eating I called and left messages for the contractor and the house mover to call me back...

the contractor called and said he had talked to the mover and it was looking like he would start the lifting of the house Tuesday......????? What????

then the house mover called and said since Monday was a holiday , he was going to have to give the state a call for a transport and he had to give them a 24 hr notice...

so looks like Wednesday is the day....After all this is over I am going to have to go on a little vacation...I am emotional stressed. Physically tired and so tired of all this crap!!!

and to you my dearest friend: thank you for calling me yesterday! No I am not in jail...I was at my sil house swimming and getting a nice sun burn...Ouch! But I feel refreshed today for the week ahead! Thanks for caring so much to call me!
hugs to you!

oh, and to add to the worrying and stress! My mother calls me and tells me she quit her job Friday to care for her mil... But that's a blog entry for another day!

have a great week everyone. I am looking forward...

Friday, September 01, 2006

Some things are just beyond control

Today is sept 1st. Only 4 days to get house moved and I have to deal with this shit.

I went home at lunch to get some paper work for the house move. I grabbed the insurance papers the mover gave me .
I decided to call the ins. Co to re-verify that he has insurance to move the house....The key word is "re-verify".

so I call, and talked to the same lady I talked to before in June.
she tells me that he does NOT have insurance to move the house... " What?" yes you heard me.
I chewed her a new asshole and hung up.

so I called the mover and left him a message that he has one hour to call me back. And has till 6:00 today to bring me back my money (5000.00) in cash or cashiers check.

what in the world am I going to do? I feel like god is punishing me for all the terrible things I have done in the past.

on the up side fred handled this better then i expected pissed off, but better then i expected.

so i call other house movers....get this the wait os 14-18 weeks before they can come out and give and estimate.....

the house is paid for. the slab is paid for.
oh god, please save my soul, for i know where the mover lives and i am thinking bad, thoughts which included torture.

so looks like if this dork, shithead doesn't call me back i will have no other choice then to go to the d.a.'s office and file charges. looks like i will be going to jail after all. just 3 days early

Thursday, August 31, 2006

Deadlines and stress

I really could spit fire right now!!!!

I am so damn mad and stressed....

1. Ok the "house mover" told me last Thursday that the house will be moved Tuesday the 29 the.....

2. I call him Monday to verify the next day appointment and he tells me this shit story and that we could bank on Friday....Ok I understand and I will see your ass Friday the 1st of sept...

3. I call Wednesday to check on things for Friday.... He tells me Monday the ...what the hell!!!!!
ok I am a easy person to get along with but this is bull shit!

4. So today I call him after looking at the weather channel and local weather cast and it will be raining Monday....................!!!!!!!
I call him and tell him, his response is this! " I have other jobs I need to complete and your next on the list" god bless his soul should that house get stuck in the mud.

I am so hot and mad that he is screwing with me! dh just calls me to call him, I wish he would take some control on this, but knowing dh this would stress him out more then me and I can not take that right now.

so in short......
should I not update my blog Tuesday September the 4th ...I will be in jail.

wonder if there is internet in jail???

Friday, August 25, 2006

it's F R I D A Y !!!

Thursday, August 24, 2006

Update: house

Well, I just got word, the house will be moved Tuesday the 29th. (weather permitting)
oh, the stress is rising again and I feel butterflies in my stomach. Just to be able to go home one day soon, and not have to worry about house things will be so nice.
the electric company came out yetersday and installed the poles. They will return today or Friday to run the lines.
we have decided to paint the paneling in the living, dining and kitchen at this moment. Money is running low and that is something that can be replaced later. As far as that kitchen!!!! I will need to hire a designer to do that later also, it is horrid...gag.

so that's the scoop today and hopefully I will be able to update a few more times before the big day. crossing fingers for no rain for the next few days

8-11 RANT

I hate when people think they are better then someone else! Who are they to judge?

I also dislike for someone to place their self higher then the next. We are all the same.

I have problems and I like to vent...Get over it.

yes you have your opinion, but hey I do too! You might not like it, and I might not like yours but life goes on!

if you see something that MIGHT bother you get over it and turn away!

I am 31 years old!!! Not a pre-teen.

I am free to speak my mind and I have worked for my freedom!

I work full time and I support my family. I hate welfare mouchers. Get off you fat , lazy butt and go to work. I hate have to support you and my own.

and hey have a great weekend! :-)

there's progress!

well, they will be pouring the concrete today at 10:00 am! yeah for me!

mil has been praying for days about the rain to go around and not dampen the work.
it has paid off! so come monday i'll post pictures of the slab!
crossing fingers to make it by september 4, 2006.

Tuesday, August 08, 2006

what a scare!

great neighbor 1/2 mile down the road luckly the lady that just bought the house down the highway calls a mutual friend we share and the friend calls me a work to tell me that there is a grass fire by your house.
ok so i tell her i will be home in 15 minutes and for her to call 9-1-1....so walking out the door i call my fil on his cell and he tells me he was burning some trees this morning and it was under control..??
me: where are you at?
fil: at home eating lunch, why?
me: i just told sky to call 911 about the fire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
fil: i will go check it out , i was just burning some small trees. no big deal. i am sure she is just seeing the smoke...i'll call when i get there!

the storyk, my father in law was in the field next to my house burning some old trees that fell down from the storm.....so he "sees" the fire is under control and leaves! to go to his house 4 miles away to eat lunch?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
so he calls me back within 5 minutes and is holloring over the sirens and coughing from the smoke! fil: lori, the fire got out of control!
me: What the hel*!!!!!!!!!! no sh@t
fil: yes , but it is all ok! they but it out, man, i got close to the house too!
me: ( now) how close?
fil: like 20 feet or so. none to worry about
me: i 'll be home in alittle bit.
fil: no need the guys got it under control..so here i sit at work wondering what the heck was he thinking? he's a retired farmer and should know better. gosh! i sh*t in my pants worring about all the scrapbooks and all the pictures and other old things that can not be replaced....and to top it off what would have happened if it did catch the house on fire? omg!and i still have 4 weeks to move in the newer house!sorry for the rant but the stress and heat is literally getting to me!

Can you say STRESS!!!!!!!

stress, n. : physical, mental, or emotional tension.

We have till September the 6th to get the house moved and get our things moved in...

the house moved called back yesterday and they want $10,000.00 to move the house, that is no big deal. the deal is they can not give me a time frame....we have 60 days , well 59 days, to get this together.... what in the heck?

the pad\dirt guy will start next week.( praying for no rain) then the concrete guy will do his thing...$11,730.00!

then the house will have to be moved before the sewage unit can be installed.( don't want them to run over the lines) $2600.00!

i just pray that once the house is moved on our property that when the bank comes to appraise it that it will appraise for $70,000.00 or we will be in deep do-do!

5 years ago today!

I was 3 months pregers with Lauren. Very happy with my life and on top of the world.
I had went to the Doctor the week before for a PAP. I was at work and the phone rang and it was my Dr. Telling me that the PAP came back abnormal and that I would have to go and see him that week. Well, I was tripping out.

you see, a little back ground: I got married at 18 and that was the first time I had went to the gynecologist. And I did not return to see him till I was pregers.
that makes it a 8 year span with no check ups.

so I went to see the doctor and he told me that my cervix was showing abnormal cells. So I had my first biopsy in his office and the results showed to be at the stage of 3 carcinoma not too bad but still worried, then he scheduled me to go to baton rouge to have another doctor see me. WOW!
so I went to Baton Rouge to see another doctor had a small biopsy and the stage went up to 4.
I was so freaking out. So he schedule me to enter the hospital and have a major removal of about 25% of the tissue of me cervix.

I have the surgery at 5 months pregers and I had Lauren at 38 weeks via c-section.

I have been going to the doctor every 3 months and no sign of the cancer comming back. And then I went to 6 months between visits and now I am graduated to once a year...

Monday, May 15, 2006

I am still here!

What a week.... !
just so i do not become a STALE blogger; Christy!

I had a great Mother's Day. (yesterday)
Fred and Lauren got me a very pretty dress and Lauren got me a pink lacey tanktop. It rained most of the day and we went to visit my Mom and give her our gifts and then we stayed home the rest of the day.

Today Fred is staying home with Lauren so Mi-Mi and Wayne can go to Houston for there medical check-ups.

i wonder if he will cook supper tonight?

Tuesday, May 09, 2006

Boring day!

I am so bored at work...I have work to do but, I don't fill like doing anything....I need a ME day...

Friday, May 05, 2006

Why? oh why?

ok, so last night i was at walmart waiting in line to check out. normal day at work and i had really no stress. Then while I was waiting for the crazy lady in front of me to get her things and leave i happened to look at the magazine stand... WTH???

ok, sorry for this vent!

Who cares that Richie Sambora is seeing Denise Richards....
Who cares that Jessica and Nick broke up....
Who cares that Kevin wants a divorce from Britney....
I think that it is horrible that the press and the general public have so much time on there hands to worry about these things.
How sad is it that Angelina and Brad had to go to Africa to have their child...SAD!
How sad is it that i now hate Tom Cruise because he is a nut...
( i still love his movies)...

ok, i think i got that rant out of my system... i just hate it that i adore some stars, but why should anyone care about their personal life... they are just like you and me...normal people...

ok have a great weekend....see ya Monday!

Thursday, May 04, 2006

My first job

Oh, those where the days!
When I got married to Fred, I was told that he did not want me to work...Well, 6 months in to the marriage, I got my first job...TELEMARKETING!!!
I totally hated it. My boss was an idiot. And he ignored me constantly. I worked from 3:00pm to 7:00pm. Monday thru Friday and 10:00am to 2:00 pm on Saturday.
I had to bother people at home and try to get them to set appointments for my boss to go by there and give them an estimate for vinyl siding for there house....
needless to say I did not last more than 2 months....
but my first check, I blew it on clothes and music. I made $125.00 the first week and if I set 10 or more appointments I would get $50.00. I never did...I so hated that job, the rejection, the headaches...
but, I must say about 5 years later I felt sorry for those telemarketers calling the house, because I was there and I knew they were just trying to make money to feed their families.
Now, I do not do to the fact that I can not understand a freakin work that they say... so I hang up before they can catch their first breath...
now ,I just wishI was able to stay at home and be the little wife... maybe one day I will win the lottery...whatever.

thank's beth for the blog idea for thursday....
