Creepy Story and Scare them Video!

As much as I said in one post that I don't believe in Ghost or Paranormal activity... I actually do. The reason?

I've had stuff happen.

Creepy stuff.

Like, awhile back I fell asleep on the couch in our family room watching T.V. My husband woke me up I'm sure to come to bed and then went into the bedroom and proceeded to fall asleep, where I drop dead as soon as he left the room.

So about two in the morning I get woken up by what I THOUGHT was my daughter. A girl off by the door to the hallway that went to the rooms was just standing there staring at me. Since it was dark I tried to rub my sleep heavy eyes to see her, again what I thought was my daughter, more clearly. I said, "What, PeePs? What do you need honey?" And then the figure just faded away.

It was creepy... and I jumped up off the couch and ran into my room and woke my husband up as I shoved myself next to his warmth and said, "I just saw a girl standing in the family room and it freaked me out. Please hold me!"

He flipped me over to my other side, cuddled up next to me, wrapped his arm around me and said, "I'm sorry baby," as he sleepily drifted off into a snoring slumber.

So I believe.

And as I've told you before, I scare super easy. I rarely scare people back, because I hate the feeling of getting scared myself. But for a game I did in blogland I was suppose to scare someone as part of the competition. So in true Halloween spirit and pranks... I bring back ME scaring my Mom and Son. No wonder people love to do it so much!

Hope you all have a Happy, creepy, scary Halloween!!!

My Weekend and cell phone pics

PBR was a blast! For the second year in a row I have attended and been so sad that I didn't buy a ticket for more than one night.

My husband and I had SO much fun! Seriously.

We went down earlier in the day and stopped at the Premium Outlets. Usually my hubs and I argue when we do this kind of stuff because I tell him how and where to drive and he tells me to mind my own business and it just keeps going on and on. But ever since we bought our GPS thingy and use the Australian male accent... it has saved our marriage... no seriously. We just type in the address and Mr. Hot Australian Accent takes us right to our destination.

Back to my man's birthday.

We went to the Premium Outlets. My plan was to take him to get his Nike Shocks at the Nike Outlet, but he wasn't feeling good, yet... I was in a shopping mood. So, I got stuff, and he well didn't "feel like it". I told him that shopping always makes me feel better, but he didn't seem to go for that.

Just as we were leaving the Outlet mall he started feeling better and we headed to the PBR Event.

We sat by guys just out of high school, I swear, but they were super friendly and offered to buy us Beer and Peanuts. They kept talking, and drinking, and chewing (as in tobacco), and talking. It was all a smelly combination... but it didn't take away from the event. They gave respect when the bulls were riding--and man oh man we saw some great action from the Bull Riders, Bull Fighters, and the hot little girl holding up the sign that said, "Bring the Noise".

We had such a good time I didn't think to pull out the camera until the end. So here is what I got of that night.

This is Austin Meier, who was leading overall so was last to ride.  Which tells you when I pulled out my camera after I put it away when we first got there!  Cell phone pic, I apologize

This is us in the car after the PBR Event, cause I'm an idiot! Sorry it's a cell phone pic.

Today my daughter had my Mom take pics of her and my niece with her camera. My camera takes a bit to take the picture-plus my Mom is kinda phone handicapped. I thought they were funny because the first picture my daughter was posing... something I have trained her to do since she could smile on cue. But then the next picture took so long to take they have that-tired smile on both her and my niece, I don't know why, but that always makes me laugh.

How was your guys' weekend? How about them Rangers? Nascar? What else was this weekend?

Yay us! And Publicly Apologizing

Ask me what I'm doing this weekend... go ahead...

ask me.

I am going to the PBR Finals!!!

I'm so stoked! I loved it so much last year that this year, for my husband's birthday, I got us tickets!

Now... he is all for going with me... on his birthday, so he says...

I know this seems like a present more for me than him, but it's in Vegas, so he wins also!

YAY us!

Now for all seriousness... not that I haven't been serious, but let's talk.

I've sucked it up at commenting on your guys' blogs lately and I want to publicly apologize.

Here's the thing.  I read your blogs on reader, in between routings when I'm at work.  But we can't access blogs.  Which is probably a good thing or I'd never get any work done.  But I do READ what you guys are saying everyday or whenever you blog... I just don't always get to comment.

If I do get to comment, it's because I have a free minute after work when I'm not taking pictures or driving kids to classes, games, and practices, or editing to make a comment.

It doesn't excuse me however.  I am going to make a better effort to comment on your blogs because I know it counts in the grand scheme of things with bloggers.

I really really really do feel bad that I haven't been around and I do want to reconcile that.

And I love even more that you guys still come over to my neck of the woods and either privately email me a comment or comment in my inbox.

Seriously, thanks.

Love ya all!

I'm featured! Mad Libs and Is This Really My Life!

You guys!!!

Someone totally likes me. They spot lighted me on their BLOG. Okay, that may not mean she actually likes me... but anyway, that is besides the point.

All I that...

This girl, EMILY, I have met in person. She is, by far, one of the greatest human beings around. I can say that because I have met her in REAL LIFE. She is easy to get along with, vibrant with energy, and completely beautiful. I'm not kidding. She's gorgeous. Up close and personal too!

I feel like I've been accepted by the popular girl... so go over there and don't leave the comment box stranded... my ego depends on it!

Click on the pic!

"I don't care what people think", and other random stuff

Hello Everyone... I have things I need to get off my mind... but first, THE UPDATE.

Dun DUn DUN...

Well, went again and there she was, a wearin my jacket again, this time my Hubs was there to verify. He BB'd me this snarky comment, "That is a cool sweatshirt that she is wearing, didn't you have one like that?"

I didn't ask for it back. Let's leave it to me being a sissy.

Okay, next on the Agenda. Brett Farve.

What The Helk?

Are you freaking kidding me!?

A guy with his reputation should have SOMETHING more, uuuhhh, impressive to send out then what he's got goin on... can I get an Amen??? Go HERE to see what I saw... but I'm warning you, you might need a vomit bucket.

Last, but certainly not least, we need to talk about the phrase, "I don't care what people think".

Total lie.

I don't care WHO you are... you care, to some degree, you give a rat's butt.

I don't know why that phrase sounds like fingernails scraping a chalkboard, or teeth squeaking on a balloon, but it makes me go into a short bout of tourette's. I start twitching and saying things I wouldn't normally say when someone spouts that phrase.

Here's the thing, and ESPECIALLY with bloggers, you care. You KNOW how I KNOW you care... cause you BLOG and complain about it and then say YOU DON'T CARE what people think. BWAHAHAHA.

It's not true.

Of course you care. Everyone does. Nobody likes a random inconsiderate email. Nobody likes to be called fat. Nobody likes to be told their a douchebag for putting their opinion out there. Nobody likes to trip in front of a crowd. Nobody likes to be seen by an old high school flame, overweight-hair and clothes a mess-and snot from your 5th kid wiped all over you and them. Or pot bellied and unsuccessful. Ya know what I mean?

You care.

I know it's easier to try and convince yourself of it. But nobody is immune to caring what people think, because there IS someone out there that their opinion matters... stranger, foe, or friend.

So please spare me the twitches.

Serious Thought Sunday: Laughter

Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it.” -Bill Cosby

I love this quote, because for me it is exactly how I get through anything besides, of course, Heavenly Father.

I have found my laughter because I believe, no I know, that life here is to experience and to learn and then when it's done, which is inevitable because someday it will be, there is the world after this which brings eternity and peace, and that encompasses happiness.

Most of what life throws our way we have no control over... so better to laugh and work through it then to throw yourself into a deep pit of darkness.

I'm not sure what those of you who don't believe in God or a Father in Heaven or a power beyond this life believe, but I just can't believe there isn't something more incredible after this life, nothing to look forward to, nothing to live life here for.

I do hope, whether you believe in God or not, that you find your laughter.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

But I want it back! Let's Discuss...

Okay the weirdest thing happened to me.

Let's just say I was going to work out at this place that I have been going to for a long time... k?

And I'm there, minding my own business. And having fun... of course.

And all of a sudden, the boss's wife walks in... wearing a jacket I haven't been able to find in MONTHS!!!

Now, I know it is mine, because it was faded, old, and had the white stain on it exactly where I had accidentally bleached it while washing it. Now, it might be pure coincidence, but I'm assuming and going with that, that jacket is mine.

It's one of my favorites.

Now, obviously I had left it at this place and since it hadn't been claimed... I guess she liked it enough to wear around. I don't blame her...

But I honestly wanted to ask for it back! And I've been all this time without it and haven't really cried over it, just knew that I couldn't find it, but seeing someone else wear it... I automatically can't think of anything else!

I'm NOT going to ask for it back, I'm not going to say anything at all... but why do I feel like a child that has just gotten their favorite toy taken away!?

I hate when life happens like this and one realized that they haven't quite matured as much as they thought they had after high school...


Don't lose hope for me guys... k?

If you were in this situation... would you say something? Or not?

I'm talking about Facebook... I'm sure you have an opinion...

I wrote a post over at Real World talking about Facebook and Relationships...

Ruin or not ruin... does Facebook play a role in the recent divorce rate?

Here's the beginning of my post... Click the Real World image below to go to the post...

My BIL’s favorite saying since Facebook came about, “Facebook is of the devil”. At first, I admittedly scoffed when he said that, chalking it up to him not understanding Facebook... or the technology world in general. But now? Now I believe he may have some kind of freaky intuition.

You see. The last two friends who have gotten divorced that I know of... BOTH because of Facebook infidelity. I’m not even fibbing. That doesn’t count the ones before that. But the last two which have been in the last two months... Facebook has been a contributor. People spending hours and hours on Facebook with games and updates statuses... neglecting family and responsibilities, an Internet addiction of another kind.

NOW CLICK and read the rest!!!
