For the Ladies........

This one is definately for you! I'll be back after my appointment, and let you know what happened. In the meantime.....It is Friday!!!

At a cocktail party, one woman said to another,
"Aren't you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong
"Yes, I am. I married the wrong man."

A lady inserted an ad in the classifieds:
"Husband Wanted"
Next day she received a hundred letters.
They all said the same thing:
"You can have mine."

When a woman steals your husband,
there is no better revenge than to let her keep him.

A woman is incomplete until she is married. Then she

A little boy asked his father,
"Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?"
Father replied, "I don't know, son, I'm still paying."

A young son asked,
"Is it true, Dad, that in some parts of Africa
a man doesn't know his wife until he marries her?"
Dad replied, "That happens in every country, son."

Then there was a ! woman who said,
"I never knew what real happiness was until I got
and by then, it was too late."

Marriage is the triumph of imagination over

If you want your spouse to listen and
pay strict attention to every word you say -- talk in
your sleep.

Just think, if it wasn't for marriage, men would go
through life thinking they had no faults at all.

First guy says, "My wife's an angel!"
Second guy remarks, "You're lucky. Mine's still

A Woman's Prayer
Dear Lord, I pray for Wisdom, to understand a man, to
love and to forgive him, and for Patience, for his
moods. Because, Lord,
if I pray for Strength, I'll just beat him to death.


Husband and wife are waiting at the bus stop with
their nine children. A blind man joins them after a few
minutes. When the bus
arrives, they find it overloaded and only the wife and
the nine kids are
able to fit onto the bus.

So the husband and the blind man decide to walk. After
while, the husband gets irritated by the ticking of
the stick of the
blind man as he taps it on the sidewalk, and says to
him, "Why don't you
put a piece of rubber at the end of your stick? That
ticking sound is
driving me crazy."

The blind man replies, "If you would've put a rubber
the end of YOUR stick, we'd be riding the bus ... so
shut the hell up!!!!

Oh, and before I forget- Someone has a special day today.....

Happy Birthday Julie!!! Hope you have a great one Sweetie!!!!!!!!!

Love and Peace, KC

I went to Dr. B's, and he said he wants to see me twice weekly for a while. He put something on my wound which, after he peeled me off the ceiling ( it stung like a MO-FO!), did manage to stem the bleeding. They also said they'd send in the additional paperwork but alas, no call today from Metlife. So I will have to call them Monday, and see ( AGAIN!) what the hell is going on. But I did find out that my BIL ( the one that lives on the river- from here on called the "River BIL") is having a party tomorrow. So that should help to take my mind off things. I also got some neat stuff in the mail today!
I'll be sure to get pics of both, and share!
Have a good weekend all!
As Always, KC

I've made some decisions.....

AKA- Moon Jeep!

Well, I've decided I'm not going to sweat the darn insurance stuff. If I get approved, so be it. If not, well, I'll just deal! I've talked to a few people, and they can't really see how Metlife would make me go back to work, when I'm still not "done healing" anyway. I mean- what would happen if I re-opened the wound. Or it got infected because I couldn't properly take care of it? So I think everything will work out. I'll just wait and see.

I'm going out running around with Mom today. I think I'm gonna look for a better Video burning program. I just can't seem to get my Roxio to work right. Every file I try to put on there from my computer, it states that it may not work in a DVD player. I've got this darn thing full of videos, and I'd like to burn them and clean some of my hard drive up. But I don't want to just lose them outright. I have some overseas DL interviews and stuff that are really cool, and I'd like to be able to have them for my collection. So if there are any of you that have any recomendations, let me know.

And I found out something neat the other day. I don't usually watch Oprah ( I'm not usually home then) but she's doing something kinda neat. Instead of taking cash donations, she is allowing you to buy something. It can be as small as a toaster- or a whole house!! And then she'll get it to the Katrina victims ( Via her "Angels Network"). I think along with the Habitat for Humanity people, this is a great idea. At least you know EXACTLY what your money's going for! All you do is go to www.oprah.com, and go to her "Katrina houses" link. I intend to buy some towels or something, as soon as I get paid. I mean, I gave to the Red Cross and all, but this is something tangible, something personal I can do.

Well, I guess I've bored you all enough for today. I'll be back around later to see you all. Have a great day! Peace and Love, KC

I just recieved a call from Metlife. They've only extended my disability through Friday!! She said it was because the paperwork the Dr. sent was "vague"??? I have my next appointment Friday morning, and then they are supposed to send the notes from the visit to Metlife. THEN maybe they'll extend me further. Jeez, don't give me any time for a "plan B" if necessary. I mean, they'll already have the schedule at work made up, so if I'm not extended, I'm basically F*cked! The *only* good thing is that my caseworker said as soon as she gets the additional paperwork, she'll jump right on it- and call me as soon as it's decided. So I won't spend the whole weekend worrying if I don't have to. I think I have some vacation days left I could use, but I had hoped to save them for emergency purposes ( like the kids getting sick, additional dr's appointments, etc). Now I have to wait and pray again. SHIT,SHIT,SHIT!
A question for you all. I have used Winmx for about a year or so. I've gotten some really good "bootleg" mp3's and video clips off of there ( I DO NOT DOWNLOAD commercially available music/video/etc!! ONLY stuff you can't buy!). But apparently Winmx is off line indefinately ( from what I read, the RIAA got to them). So do you all know of any other P2P programs that I could use. I've heard about some having alot of spyware/virus/crap on them, So I just don't want to pick one randomly. And you all know the type of stuff I'd want ( DL mainly, with various other artist thrown in ) So any suggestions? I tried Warez, but all they have is the regular "comercially available" stuff, and I won't touch that. No bootleg stuff at all. Since I don't have a lot of stuff that I can use on a "trade" site, this is the only way I can get these things.

Well, I'm gonna go blast some music. Or watch a comedy DVD. Anything to get me out of this pissy mood I've been put in. Did you know- I actually offered to e-mail that nurse at Metlife a picture of my "wound"?? Just so she'd know I wasn't faking it!!??? Sheesh. I wish I could work in the garden. I'm in the right mood to attack weeds right now!!! I guess I'll have to settle for the "dust bunnies" in my house.
I'll come back later, when I'm calmer.

I don't need no stinkin' Title!!!

Andy in front of a shuttle.

This is one of the prototypes that never flew, but they let the public into to see what they're really like. Let me tell you, the crew compartment is smaller than my livingroom. If I were crammed in there with 6 other people, I'd go mad! I tried to take some pictures of the inside, but it was waaaay too dark. You've already seen the one that came out. Sorry!

Well, I'm still waiting to hear if my Disability has been extended. They still have my paperwork "in process". Which is driving me looney, because tomorrow is the end of the initial period I was approved for. Which means, if I am NOT approved for an extention, I'll have to do some fancy maneuvers to get myself back to work. Put Thurs. & Friday on as vacation days ( I guess?), and then get them to put me back on the schedule for next week. Which will suck, since I will still have this stupid wound on my..er..you know. I don't know how I will be able to change my bandages in our "public restroom" while at work. Not to mention the fact that if I sweat, and it goes *there*, I'll be in some serious pain!! I know I'm probably worrying over nothing, but still.....! Oh and because my payments are so far behind, I figured out that I will be getting 2 paychecks when I get back to work. They'll still owe me for my disability, while I'll be earning my regular pay. Silly, No?
Anyway, I hope I get that phone call soon, cause the "not knowing" is gonna drive me NUTS! ( I know, I already am a nut, but right now I'm worse than normal!!)

*edit* I just got off the phone with Walgreens Payroll. I won't be "booted" off for at least another week. And she said since my paperwork is already "in process", it shouldn't be a problem. Still, the waiting is making me nervous. So keep those finger's crossed for me please!!

I'm thinking about going down to the store ( Wal-mart), and picking up Viv's new CD. I don't know whether they'll have it here ( ours just sucks when it comes to CD's!). I may have to wait, and go down to Best Buy. Then again, there's always Amazon.com! Yea, there's the ticket! It's just too hot outside to go anywhere, and I really don't feel like getting dressed at the moment. (well, I'm dressed, just not for public consuption!) And then I'm going organize some photos I found. They've been hiding in a box for YEARS! Most of them are from college, and around the time Jon and I first got married. So I've got my "project-du-jour". I'll be back later, to check on you all!

"Where dreams become reality"

This is the VAB- Vehicle assembly building. This is where the rockets/shuttles are put together, and on their launch pads. I know it doesn't look like much in the picture, but bear in mind we were about a half mile away in a bus. This is the 3rd largest building in the world- volumewise. You can fit 3 & 1/2 Empire State buildings in there! It's something like 600ft tall on the inside. The Saturn 5 rockets just cleared those front doors ( the grey ones on the side) by about 6 ft. With the shuttles, they only have to open the bottom 3 slats! Speaking of which:

This is one of the Saturn 5 rockets. It's so darn big, that you can't fit the whole thing in one photo. But with the people in the shot- you can get the jist of the size of the thing! Check out the difference: Saturn 5 engine- actually 1 of 3 that it took to get it into orbit!

Taken from about 25 ft back, looking up. Now check out the size of a Shuttle engine:

We've come a LOOONNNNGG way!

Andy and Kim inside the Shuttle cargo hold. Sorry you can't see too well, but it's dark in that puppy! Oh, and something for my Canadian friends:

Looky who made the Shuttle's robot arm! So we are not in this business alone!

Well, we had a good time. And it's nice that they give us "locals" the opportunity to see the place for free. Although the food, drink and such are outrageously priced ( a bottle of Aquafina is $2.50!!) But we're used to "tourist" prices down here. They've added so much stuff to see there, although since 9/11, they don't let the public get as "close" to the important areas. Like the launch pads, and control centers. Which is understandable. When I went there as a kid, they even let you into the VAB. But since the shuttles, they can't- because they store the rocket boosters and such in there as well. Just too dangerous for the general public. I have some more pictures, but I'll share them over the next few days. I don't want to "overload" you all in one post!

Other than that, this was a fairly quiet weekend. Just the usual cleaning/laundry/rest which is the norm here. Hope you all have a great Monday. I'll talk at you all soon! Peace and Love, KC

See you soon!

We've heard that this is the weekend that it is FREE for anyone in Brevard county to go to Kennedy Space Center. So that's where we are bound tomorrow. I will take pictures, and hopefully spend Monday recounting the details. Jon has not been there since before Becky was born (1990) and there is sooooo much more stuff to see!
I hope all of you are having a great weekend.
Peace and Love, KC!

I know this is late but......

I've been cleaning the computer all evening. You all remember when I was having a problem with the "temporary internet files"? Well, it seems that the program I use- CCleaner- has only been working on MY part of the computer. You know how XP lets everyone have their own "space"? Well, Jon and Becky's have not been getting "cleaned" at all! So I had to go in to each of their's and clean up. Which took about 2 hours! But at least NOW I know this thing is in good working order.
Anywho- on with the fun stuff! As you know, I was seriously short on jokes. Thanks to Jude for this one!


! 1. Everyone around you has an attitude problem.
2. You're adding chocolate chips to your cheese omelet
3. The dryer has shrunk every last pair of your jeans.
4. Your husband is suddenly agreeing to everything you say.
5. You're using your cellular phone to dial up every bumper sticker that says: "How's my driving-call 1- 800-"
6. Everyone's head looks like an invitation to batting practice.
7. Everyone seems to have just landed here from "outer space."
8. You can't believe they don't make a tampon bigger than Super Plus.
9. You're sure that everyone is scheming to drive you crazy.
10. The ibuprofen bottle is empty and you bought it yesterday.

And this is one that managed to come in today- short but funny!


A local man was found dead in his home over the weekend.

Detectives at the scene found the man face down in his bathtub.

The tub had been filled with milk, sugar and cornflakes.

A banana was sticking out of his ass.

Police suspect a cereal killer

Have a great weekend!

Random Stuff

Well, just a few things to say
1- Traci, take care. I hope to whatever power that's in charge that you get through Rita safe, and that you come home soon ( and to a house, and not anything less!)

2- I've added a new link to my sidebar. Orion's McBlog, which I started reading whilst hanging out at Tracey's & Jude's Blogs. He's interesting, funny, and just one more place worth visiting. 'Nuf said!

3- Well, I managed to get my book collection straightened out, and in the process, took a long hard look at my closet. I know I cleaned it out last spring, but I'm still seeing a heck of a lot of stuff that I really don't need in there. So here I go again, armed with garbage bags, to make a dent in what I like to call the "Fine pack-rat" mentality. And if I have time, Hubby's closet could use some purging. Waste Management is gonna hate me before it's all said and done. But this is one chore I CAN DO, despite my surgery. So I guess I'm on a mission. Becky has gotten into the act as well, and has filled 3 big bags with stuff out of the girl's room as well! Even Martha would call it a good thing- no?

4- I FINALLY got my disability pay! WOO HOO! And since I sent the paperwork off to get my time extended, I should be in good shape. I'll call Metlife later today to see if they recieved it, and if I'm approved. Because if I'm not- I'll have to call Tom and get my butt back on the schedule. Although the thought of going back to work with a still open wound is not one I want to deal with. Change my bandages in a PUBLIC RESTROOM?? Yuck! But I don't think that will happen. Dr. B. wouldn't be so cruel, not after all I've been through. Hell, he was the one who said that radiation was overdoing it with me, and that I'd done enough! But until I make the call this afternoon, I won't rest easy. Keep your fingers crossed please! ( it's worked so well in the past!)

Well, that's all I can think of for now. I just wish the weather would clear up. It's a scary thing that Rita is about 500+ miles west of me, and she's still managing to dump rain here. Show how awesome "Mother Nature" can be. My thoughts and prayers are with all in Texas. Been there, Done that, Bought the stupid T-shirt. I wish them all safety!
Love and Peace, KC

Update 9:45am
I just got off the phone with Dr. B- they sent my paperwork out. She ( his nurse) said "Karen, there's just no WAY you can go back to work right now! Don't worry, Dr. B's got you covered! WHEW! Now I can relax and not spend 1/2 my brain on worrying. After all, I don't have that much to spare lol!

Something that makes you go HMMMMM!

Borrowed with permission from Monique:
If you go to Google's homepage, type in the word "failure"- then hit the "I feel lucky" key. this is what comes up: CLICK HERE

OK, I have to run by my store. It seems that my disability payments ( not that I've seen any yet!!) are due to end next Weds. And I don't even see dr. B until next FRIDAY! So I have to get them to extend my time off, or I'll be in big trouble. I'll be back later to see if any of you tried my little "something"
Til later- Peace, KC


OK- I'm back!
Let's hope that paperwork gets processed asap, or your's truly will be up *that* creek without a paddle, heading for Niagra Falls!! Going a whole month, on 1 week's pay, is not my idea of fun. Poor Tom, he heard about it an offered to go get his checkbook ( bless him!) and write me a check. Which I may have to do if I don't see any of my money by Friday. I'm not going to charge another weeks groceries- damn-it! That shouldn't have to happen!

Well, Rita may be headed west, but I think she's left some of herself behind. I swear it has been thundering and raining all morning long. Which is not conducive of any energy on my part. Now that I've got the "big" project out of the way( and with the help of Waste Management- really GONE!) I had another in mind. I have a walk-in closet, with a bunch of spare room. And since I bought some extender shelves last week (thinking that Andy would need them- and he doesn't now) I thought to use them for bookshelves inside my closet. I just don't have that many clothes, and a TON of books. Especially by my 3 favorites. Since these authors have "series" type lines, I thought I could commit a shelf for each, and keep them in order. That way, I can "fill in the blanks" that I have for each, without shuffling through stacks of books. But I just can't seem to get myself together today to do anything. BLEH!

Well, I'm going to go find something to brighten up this dull day. A message to Traci- STAY SAFE SWEETIE! We'll all ( I'm sure!) Be praying that Rita leaves you and yours the heck alone!Along with the rest of the Gulf Coast- they've just plain had enough! I think I can say I know a bit about that ;-)
Peace and Love to you all, KC

Pray for me, 'cause I'm about to enter the 9th dimension of HELL ( A.K.A. Andy's room!) He has supposedly cleared/cleaned it out, only to make even MORE of a mess ( I know, I didn't think it was possible either!

Wish me luck! I'll be back with pics if I survive. ( If not, I bequeath my Clothes to the Salvation Army, my books to the Palm Bay Library, my CD.'s to....................... ;-) )


UPDATE: Hey! I think I found Jimmy Hoffa! And he's talking to Elvis somewhere in there!! lol! Ok, back to work- where did I put the whip and chair??????????????

Ok, off to finish up


Ok, so you all thought I was kidding, Huh? Well see the before:

Now do you believe me????????????

Now- after numerous garbage bags and much sweat later: AFTER MOM!

Oh and BTW- Jimmy and Elvis are having lunch at Burger King- I was too tired to join them ;-)

I just hope to hell he keeps it somewhat neat now. ( heck, what am I saying- he doesn't have anything left to make a mess with!!!) Well, I'm gonna take a nap now, I think I've earned it!

I Have a question???

I've never had this problem, but Maggie is chewing/biting/pulling at all of Mom's electrical cords! Now, as small as she is, you'd think this wouldn't be a big problem. But she's already almost pulled Mom's stereo down on top of her! Not to mention the damage to her- and any electronics involved. I've always adopted "older" dogs, that are past the "chewing" phase, and so has Mom. So what can we get to deter this little critter from danger? All of Mom's outlets ( unfortunately) are down low, so we can't just plug them up out of harms way. Mom has had to unplug all her stuff before leaving the house or going to sleep! Which, in this day and age- is a BIG pain in the butt. So any ideas would be greatfully appreciated. I'm going to "surf" around for ideas, but if you all have any it would be great!

Oh, and I finally heard from my friend Devon last night! Pharmacy school is going great for her, and she seems in good spirits! Wonderful news! Her son is managing to adapt well too. She's supposed to come up around the 1st, so maybe we can get together. Another worry gone, thankfully!

And I also managed to get some herbs and flowers planted. Not as much as I had hoped, but I didn't want to overdo. So I'm gonna take it REALLY SLOW, and maybe, eventually, I'll be able to look outside without cringing. I don't think I'll be able to do the whole vegetable garden this year, it's just too much work. That will be a first for me, but Oh well!

Oh, and I lost my e-bay bid AGAIN! I swear, I think some people sit on their computers, and wait until the last minute to out-bid me! I checked it less than 1 hour before it closed, and I was the highest bidder by over $10. And then I was outbid by 50 cents! Crap! Well, I guess I'll just keep trying. Sooner or later, I'll get that darn thing!!!
I hope you all had a great weekend ( except for poor Jude, who is living in remodel HELL right now!) and I'll catch you all later.

Silly Sunday

Just for sh*t's and giggles-
The Keys to Your Heart
You are attracted to good manners and elegance.
In love, you feel the most alive when things are straight-forward, and you're told that you're loved.
You'd like to your lover to think you are loyal and faithful... that you'll never change.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was ruthless, cold-blooded, and sarcastic.
Your ideal relationship is lasting. You want a relationship that looks to the future... one you can grow with.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage something you've always wanted... though you haven't really thought about it.
In this moment, you think of love as commitment. Love only works when both people are totally devoted.
What Are The Keys To Your Heart?

Ok, sounds good to me! Oh, and I got my herbs and flowers planted. ( NO- I didn't do myself any harm, although sweat in an "open wound" is not my idea of a fun time!!)

And just because---

And the winner is....................

2-0 on the season. **off to do her silly little happy dance, complete with her "Terrible Towel***

Friday again!

The family in Jamestown, VA.

Well, another week gone. And I have something to do today! I went out yesterday and bought some herbs and flowers. I just can't stand seeing all my beds just standing empty. The summer heat has decimated what was there, and dirt and sand ( and weeds!) are just not my ideal landscape. So today, when Jon gets home, I'm gonna get some fertilizer, and replant a few beds. The weather down here has gone from "hell" to just "hot", so hopefully these will at least have a fighting chance. And no, I will not do any heavy work- Jon will do that. I'll just settle for putting the actual plants in, and arranging the beds. It's just very hard for me to just sit here and look at all that needs to be done- and not be able to do anything about it. This will ( hopefully) help a little of that frustration go away!

Well, since it's Friday- You all know what comes next! This first one comes from my Cousin Rae:

The Genie
While trying to escape through Pakistan, Osama Bin Laden found a bottle on a beach and picked it up.
Suddenly a female genie rose from the bottle and with a smile said, "Master, may I grant you one wish?"
"You ignorant, unworthy daughter-of-a-dog! Don't you know who I am? I don't need any common woman giving me anything" barked Bin Laden.

The shocked genie said "Please, I must grant you a wish or I will be returned to that bottle forever. "

Osama thought a moment, then grumbled about the impertinence of the woman and said, "Very well, I want to awaken with three American women in my bed in the morning.
So just do it and be off with you!"

The annoyed genie said, "So be it!" and disappeared.

The next morning Bin Laden woke up in bed with Lorena Bobbitt, Tonya Harding, and Hillary Clinton.
His penis was gone, his knees were broken, and he had no health insurance.
God is good

And our very own Sandy sent me this one! And it hit's close to home!

I lie awake
I lie awake waiting for you.

As I lie on my bed, thinking about you, I feel this strong urge to grab you and squeeze you, because I can't forget last night.

You came to me unexpectedly during the balmy and calm night and what happened in my bed still leaves a tingling sensation in me.

You appeared from nowhere and shamelessly, without any reservations, you lay on my naked body...
You sensed my indifference, so you applied your hungry mouth to me without any guilt or humiliation, and you nearly drove me crazy while you drained me.

Finally I went to sleep.
Today when I woke up, you were gone. I searched for you but to no avail, only the sheets bore witness to last night's events.

My body still bears faint marks of your enthusiastic ravishings,
making it harder to forget you.

Tonight I will remain awake waiting for you...

... you fucking mosquito!

Have a great day, and a great weekend all!
Peace and Love, KC

Boring days

I know, but that's what it's like. I can't go shopping- I have no money ( yet!)
I can't garden- can't rip the stitches.
I can't do anything major around the house - see above

Well, now that I've got that out of my system... ;-)

Kat- No, I can't make it. We have a family thing to do on that day ( birthday ) so that comes first. I *may* be over there monday evening however. My favorite author is having a book signing at a B & N on Colonial drive. I just have to convince hubby that I should go. I would LOVE to get her to sign one of my books!!

I thought I'd mention that ( if you look at the blurry picture) that my hair is finally growing back. It's to the point now that it doesn't look like "Chemo head" hair. It's still toooooo short for my taste, but it does look like a very short hairstyle. Now if the rest of my body would just finish healing, I could put the whole experience where it belongs- in my "live and learn" file. I'll still have to take medications, and be checked up on every three months. But at least it will no longer be the main thing in my life. About friggin' time, No?

Andy has joined the school T.V.( in house) news. Right now, he's in charge of the teleprompter ( which, with how he spells- scares the heck out of me!!) But he may be moved up to an Anchor position. He's really excited about the whole process. Perhaps I have a budding Dan Rather on my hands? My son, the reporter! Sorry, having a "Proud Mommy-moment" here *sigh*!

No one has yet guessed the "name that tune" lyrics. Y'all are slacking big-time! So get on the stick- Jules needs some competition!! Not that I care who wins- But the scoreboard is pretty blank at the moment!!

Well, nothing else going on. I'll cruise around and be back later. I'm in the mood to get/find some silly stuff. You've all been warned ;-)
Peace and Love, KC

Meet Maggie

I have no idea why all my pictures lately are so "fuzzy"? I think maybe Kimmie may have put fingerprints on the lens. I know my hands aren't that shaky!! But since I didn't realize the problem until after Maggie left, this is the best I can do at the present.

Becky's home from school today- she's got a bit of a stomach bug. So no "quiet" today for me. So I'll probably just do some reading. I had hoped to get at few chores, but she's sleeping ( since she didn't much last night) and I don't want to wake her. Sheesh, just when I get the energy up to do something constructive.... :(

Someone needs to stop me! I am addicted to a website! That one on my sidebar, with the free(ish) Silver jewelry? I've ordered a bunch of stuff ( all which is great- btw!) and if I don't stop soon, I'll have to take out a loan! Or at least buy a new jewelry box. I just love silver, and this just feeds me too well!

Well, I'm gonna surf a little, and go do some laundry. I'm so bored of all that, so if anyone's in the mood to chat.... ;-)

Have a great day friends! Peace and Love, KC

**Update by me**
I found that darn "Unplugged" on E-bay again! So wish me luck that I get it this time. Anyone have any pointers? Maybe I don't know how to "play the game"????

New Music Monday!!

A new video for you all, and new lyrics on the bottom. Come on, Y'all, Jules is kicking everyone's butt here in the "name that tune" portion of our little world. So far she's the first both times. And I really wanted a different video on here, but they say the code's not available. So this was my next pick. I really like Matchbox 20's music, especially this video.

Well, as I said before, I didn't win my E-bay auctions. I thin the problem was I wasn't online during the last hour, and couldn't "upgrade" my bids. And they are 2 videos that I've been trying to get my hands on for years! Even Winmx hasn't had them on long enough for me to download them. If any of you have any suggestions on where I could lay my hands on them, I'd appreciate it. I don't have enough to "trade" for them, I'm really just getting started on the whole "bootleg" scene. And I have yet to figure out how to convert the videos I have on my desktop to DVD. I keep getting warnings when I try ( like- this file may not play on your player- type warnings) and I can't figure it out yet. So these are the ones I'm trying to get:

Muchmoremusic's "Unplugged and Unshaved"- I have the audio, but not video,
WZZO's 1999 soccer match with DL.

Anyway, later today Mom's bringing over her new "baby" for me to see. Her new little beagle puppy, "Maggie". I'll try and get a picture to show you all- she's only 10 weeks old, and all belly according to Mom! I wonder what our Shadow will make of her? If they get along, it will go a long way in convincing me that another dog would not be a problem, should we decided to get one. That's one of the reasons that I've resisted getting another dog, although now would be the perfect time, since I'm here all day and could train it before heading back to work. We'll just have to see what happens.

Well, the dirty dishes in the kitchen are calling me. I'll catch you all later!
Have a great day! Peace and Love, KC

What Time Period Do You Belong In? (Updated!)
brought to you by Quizilla

I love this period in time! Even when I read my "lite" books, they're either back in this time period, or have something to do with fantasy/mythology.

Well, I'm on here because Jon's working overtime this morning ( YEAH!) I can tell you that he makes a pretty penny when he does. Which is just fine with me, since Walgreens still owes me a week's back pay. At least if he makes a bit extra, the budget won't suffer too badly. I hate cutting things too thin. Takes me back to when we were hurting so bad, that I didn't know where the grocery money was coming from. I never want to go back there again, Thankyousoverymuch!!! Besides, I've got 2 bids up on E-bay right now ( not high, but on 2 things I've wanted for some time!) And it will help me to pay for those as well. A couple of DL rare DVD's- the "unpluged and unshaved" dvd, and one of a soccer match they had in 1999. Keep your fingers crossed for me!! (Seems E-bay is the only way I can get a hold of these things. I don't have anything to trade on the "trade" sites as of yet.)

I've been playing with a landscape program on this thing. I'm trying to come up with a plan for our backyard. It's just a hodge-podge right now, and I'd like it to look like somewhere we could spend some time. We have a couple of trees we planted, that are not doing well, along with a Ponderosa lemon tree that's seen better days ( those are lemons that are the size of grapefruit- which make the best lemonade you've ever tasted!) So hopefully come October, when the weather gets to the point that you can spend more than 5 minutes outside, I'll have all figured out. A rock garden, sitting area, along with my veggie garden are all on the bill. Oh, and a big old Oak tree for shade. Sitting under an tree, in a nice chair- drink and book in hand. God, I can't wait!! So that's where I'm headed now. Maybe a nice little pond/waterfall by said sitting area? I know- I'm a dreamer. But hey, if we can't dream........ ;-)

Have a great weekend all! Peace and Love, KC

Sunday update: Lost BOTH the E-Bay bids. Darn it! I'll never get to see those darn things. I've bid on those 2 items about 10 times over the last 4 year, and never won. Shit! I think I'll go drown in some mint chocolate chip ice cream. Yup, that will take the edge off. Darn! :(

Dr. Visit

went ok. Looks like I'll be out a little longer. He doesn't even want me back to see him until Sept. 30th, which means at least 1 more week out. And he gave me an ointment to help with the healing. We'll see how it goes.

Hubby's working tomorrow morning, so I have to get off this thing. I'll post more in the morning. I just thought you all would like to know how it went.

Friday Funny

As I have to go to the Dr. this morning- I thought I'd post this early. I will be back later today and let you all know how it went. But I thought you might like a giggle ( or two) to start the day:


She's sitting at the table with her gourmet coffee.
Her son is on the cover of the Wheaties box.
Her daughter is on the cover of Business Week.
Her boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl.
And her husband is on the back of the milk carton.


"Cash, check or charge?" I asked, after folding items the woman
wished to purchase. As she fumbled for her wallet. I noticed a
remote control for a television set in her purse.
"So, do you always carry your TV remote?" I asked.
"No," she replied, "but my husband refused to come shopping with me,
and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him


I know I'm not going to understand women. I'll never understand how
you can take boiling hot wax pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the
hair out by the root, and still be afraid of a spider.


While attending a Marriage Seminar dealing with communication, Tom
and his wife Grace listened to the instructor, "It is essential that
husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other."
He addressed the man, "Can you describe your wife's favorite flower?"
Tom leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and whispered,
"It's Pillsbury, isn't it?
The rest of the story gets rather ugly, so I'll stop right here.


A man walks into a pharmacy and wanders up and down the aisles. The
sales girl notices him and asks him if she can help him. He answers
that he is looking for a box of tampons for his wife. She directs
him down the correct aisle. A few minutes later, he deposits a huge
bag of cotton balls and a ball of string on the counter.
She says, confused, "Sir, I thought you were looking for some
tampons for your wife?
He answers, "You see, it's like this, yesterday, I sent my wife to
the store to get me a carton of cigarettes, and she came back with a
tin of tobacco and some rolling papers; cause it's sooo-ooo much
So, I figure if I have to roll my own .......so does she.


A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a
word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of
them wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of
mules, goats, and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, "Relatives
of yours?"
"Yep," the wife replied, "in-laws."


A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use
a day... 30,000 to a man's 15,000. The wife replied, "The reason
has to be because we have to repeat
everything to men...The husband then turned to his wife and
asked, "What?"


A man said to his wife one day, "I don't know how you can be so
stupid and so beautiful all at the same time. "The wife
responded, "Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would
be attracted to me; God made me stupid so I would be attracted to


A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the
coffee each morning.
The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then
we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee."

The husband said, " You are in charge of cooking around here and you
should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my

Wife replies, "No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible
that the man should do the coffee. "Husband replies, "I can't
believe that, show me."

So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed
him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says........."HEBREWS

Drizzle, Drazzle, Ho, Hum

Well, this is Ophelia at work. It's been like this for 2 days, and will remain this way until she decides to move her sorry butt! I know it could be worse, but not the kind of weather to make you jump up with enthusiam. And my Father-in-law wonders why I will not move to Seattle. The thing is ( Tig will back me on this I'm sure!) when we get rain down here, it usually is over in an hour or so. for it to rain for 2-3 days straight is very unusual. Thankfully!

At the beginning of the school year, I signed Andy and Kimmie up for their school lunch accounts. These are ones that you can pay for on-line ( mylunchmoney.com ). Well, I got a call this morning from the school saying that Andy owes the cafeteria $1.10. I went on to the site to check things out, and they will not let me sign on! I even did the "I can't remember my password" stuff, and I'm doing everything right?
So now I'll have to call them, and get that whole mess straightened out. 'Cause if Andy is short on lunch money, Kimmie will be too! Bleh!

Just a few short notes:

Kim- I think "brown" Sucks!

Michael- Go on the apple website, under their forum section. It tells you how to report your I-Pod stolen, and they can help you get it back ( hopefully!)

Lisa- I'm sorry the song made you cry! If you want let me know I'll change it fast!

Robin- I've been watching VH1 Classic all morning- JBJ is all over it ( FYI)


I go to see the Dr. tomorrow, which is a good thing. I changed my bandage this morning, and I don't think things are healing as they should. I know he said I'd heal from the inside out, but it shouldn't look so bad you'd want to gag either- right?! Not that it hurts badly, but the darn thing should look alot better- Hell, it's been 3 weeks!! I'll find out tomorrow I guess.
Hope you all are having a great day. I'm off to find the water-wings for the car ;-)

A new song for you all!!

And maybe this one will not cause my daughter to turn down the headphones. It's one of the albums we have that I actually have her turn up! I just like it- so shoot me!

Well, Andy just informed me last nite that he has nothing to wear. It seems the boy is going through one of those dreaded "growth spurts", were everything that fit last week is now too small. So I am dragging "Nanny" out with me, and we'll see what I can find. She works at a dept. store ( Beall's, if any of you have heard of it) and she get's a really good discount. So hopefully, I won't have to break my budget to re-clothe the boy. I knew it was coming, since he wears the same size shoe as his dad, but is only a little under 5 foot tall right now. But I have to do something- he only has 3 pair of pants that fit him!!

And we have to go by Pet's mart. Shadow needs new dishes, and lead for the backyard. She broke the last one, although it was pretty old, and didn't take much effort on her part! Mom also gets her new puppy on Saturday, so I'm sure she'll need some stuff as well. Let's just hope I don't see any "strays" that need a good home. I'm in that kind of mood, I just may cave!

On to the good stuff- DL! I see some more tour dates coming out. I even saw one in California ( KIM!!). I'm not really holding out any hope for more Fl. dates though- they had 4 of them the first time around. They really did cover the whole state already, and there are so many places that they haven't gone to yet. Which is ok by me, since I really have to pay off all the bills from those shows, + our vacation. I don't think that Jon will allow any more "Lep-treks" until we're a bit more solvent. So maybe next summer, Huh? At least we know it's not going to be another 3-year-gap between tours again. Thank goodness!

Well, I'd better get my stuff together, and go meet Mom. I'll catch you all later
Oh, and Jude? Tomorrow for sure ;-)

Well, Another week

And hopefully it will be less stressful. One can always dream.

I went down to my store this morning, to get more bandages/tape for my stitches. The first thing they said was how much they miss me. ( ok, all together now- ***sigh***) Well, it seems things have really been a mess since I've been gone. They DID finally get rid of the guy I called "N", but not for what you'd think. It seems he was buying things with a food stamp card & his employee discount, and then turning around and SELLING the stuff in his brother's store! Illegal as hell, and he said he didn't know it was!! But at least we've seen the last of him! And they've apparently been having a problem covering my shifts. All the "extra" help that I/they were told was around hasn't materialized. But I told them there is no way I can be back before the end of September, I'm just not healing as fast as I'd hoped. They're really OK with that, they want me back, but not to the detriment of my health. So I don't feel too bad about it.

Oh, and you want to know one problem with having too much time on your hands? You get into trouble. I spent this morning just crusing the net, and ended up buying some stuff for fun. No, I didn't need it, just some goofy bumperstickers and such. And while I spent a grand total of $20- I feel a little guilty. But I'll get over it. One I got was pretty funny: " I know all about Hell- I work in Retail" I think that one is VERY appropriate- yes?!

Well, I'm just gonna relax some today. We have this little tropical depression off the coast, and it's supposed to be rainy most of the day. Maybe I'll burn a few CD's. I haven't done that for a while ( and I owe Kim one!). And check in with all of you. Hey, did you all see that Mark's site is back up? And wonder of wonders- he has me linked??? I doubt he comes here though- he doesn't even know who I am lol. But if he does, I saw the perfect T-Shirt for him while I was shopping this morning- It said ( of course) "Arrogant Bastard"!! And of course I thought of him ;-)

Have a great Tuesday all!

I'm exhausted!

I've spent the last 2 days "de-bugging" the house. Not one piece of furniture, not one piece of clothing, linen, hats, hair "do-hickeys" etc has not seen my wrath. I've treated everyone's hair in the house, and if I find one of those darn things- I'm gonna go "postal"! Even every stuffed animal in the house has spent time in the clothes dryer for at least 1/2 hour. Short of "tenting" the whole house, I don't think there's anything more we can do. But I'm pretty confident that this should end the problem. It better ;-)

Other than that fun, there's really been not much going on. I've just been watching whats going on with the people of the Gulf Coast. And reading some books. I hate the fact that I read so fast, that I can finish a 500+ page book in a day! All that reading I had to do in college really made me a speedy reader. Which is fine when you have a big "book budget". But I don't, and I've already gone through most of what the local library has that interests me. So I'm going to have to find a new "project" to keep me sane. One that I can do with my limited physical capabilities. Either that, or I'm gonna go stir crazy soon!

Well, I've got to finish up with the laundry. Maybe I'll play around with my I-Tunes. I've got some stuff to rearrange on the thing anyway. I just thought I'd drop by and let you know I'm still here. I hope you all are having a great weekend. Until tomorrow...
Love and Peace, KC

P.S.- For those of you asking about the whole-class "head checks". It seems that a few years back, some parents took exception to them. There was a massive outbreak at the school ( of which "we" were apparently immune) Since parents had to take time off from work to both pick the kids up, and drive the kids in the next morning to be rechecked- Some complained about nearly losing jobs because of it. Anyway, this caused a major problem for the school system, which decided to change their policy. Now, a child has to have a "live louse" in their hair ( a nit was sufficient in the past) and only that child can be "checked". Which the school nurse readily admitted made it hard to control a problem. Only if 5+ kids in any one class are found to be "infested", can a blanket check occur. And only Kimmie and one other have had the problem in her class. I don't agree with it, but that's the policy at present. And there doesn't seem to be any way around it. I talked to her principal, and unless the problem becomes widespread, she can't change things. So here I am, playing "Terminex lady". The only good thing that's come of it, is I've finally learned how to cut my kids' hair ( well, Kim's and Andy's!) Looking on the bright side here!!!!!!! ;-)

Another day...

And more shit from the school. Andy came home early today ( he said HE had lice- Jeez!) and then as I was leaving to go to the bus stop for Kimmie, the school called. Seems since Andy wasn't on the bus- Kimmie was taken off! No one told me it was mandatory for Kindergarteners to have a designated "escort" on the buses!!! Sheesh. Well, now that I know, I can fix it. But so much for a peaceful day.

Went for my check-up this morning, and Dr. B said I'm healing well. Not as fast as some would, but between the Chemo and Radiation, my skin & body just won't heal as fast as most would. But that's ok, just so long as it does eventually!!!

Well, I've had it for this week. Between Katrina, and my own personal crap I could really use a joke. Or maybe 2?

Question: How many women with MENOPAUSE does it take to change a
light bulb?

Answer: One! ONLY ONE!!!!

And do you know WHY? Because no one else
in this house knows HOW to change a light bulb!

They don't even know that the bulb is BURNED OUT!!

They would sit in the dark for THREE DAYS before they figured it out. And, once they figured it out, they wouldn't be able to find the #&%!* light bulbs despite the fact that they've been in the SAME CABINET for the past 17 YEARS!

But if they did, by some miracle of GOD, actually find them, 2 DAYS LATER, the chair they dragged over to stand on to change the STUPID light bulb would STILL BE IN THE SAME SPOT!!!!! AND UNDERNEATH IT WOULD BE THE WRAPPER THE FREAKING LIGHT BULBS CAME IN!!!



I'm sorry. What was the question?


Subject: Men -- Choosing a wife:

A man wanted to get married. He was having trouble choosing among three
likely candidates. He gives each woman a present of $5,000 and watches to see
what they do with the money.

The first does a total make over. She goes to a fancy beauty salon gets her
hair done, new make up and buys several new outfits and dresses up very
nicely for the man. She tells him that she has done this to be more attractive
for him because she loves him so much.

The man was impressed.

The second goes shopping to buy the man gifts. She gets him a new set of
golf clubs, some new gizmos for his computer, and some expensive clothes. As
she presents these gifts, she tells him that she has spent all the money on
him because she loves him so much.

Again, the man is impressed.

The third invests the money in the stock market. She earns several !
times the $5,000. She gives him back his $5000 and reinvests the remainder
in a joint account. She tells him that she wants to save for their future
because she loves him so much.

Obviously, the man was impressed.

The man thought for a long time about what each woman had done with the
money he'd given her.

Then, he married the one with the biggest boobs.

Men are like that, you know.

...There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than
on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large
elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no
recollection of what to do with them.

Me here- The fomer will not be me!!!!!
Peace and Love, KC

My day in HELL!

I swear, I thought I was going to have a peaceful day yesterday. Just run some errands with Mom, come home, relax. NOT!

First, let me say that the lice problem with Kimmie is still there. I keep treating her hair( along with all the other precautions like spraying the house,washing the linens etc), but she gets to school, and picks up more! Anyway, I dropped her off at school ( via the nurse's office. If a child leaves due to head lice, they must be "examined" before they can come back. She was, and declared clean). about 11:15 my phone rings. It's the school nurse. He said she had been scratching, and her teacher wanted her out! So back to pick her up, and after a discussion with the nurse where I mentioned the fact that we both know she was good when she came in, he promised to have a discussion with her teacher. He and I both feel that there must be a child in her class that is infested, and possibly is so used to them that they don't scratch. Unfortunatly, for some reason the school can not do any "blanket" head checks, so until we find the "source", Kimmie's up a creek! But I and said nurse are very concerned about using the shampoo's for this so much. After all, it is a pesticide, and could harm her skin if overdone. I've told him that if it happens again, I want a meeting with the principal. I am not going to put Kimmie through any more of this, to the detriment of HER health. Nope, not me. I just hope it doesn't come to that.

Anywho, we picked herself up, and went to get a bite to eat. While heading home, I get ANOTHER call from the school. It seems my less-than-graceful son Andy had an accident on the playground. They have a "balance-beam" out there, and Andy fell, landing on his CHEST on the bar! He's ok now, but he has a nasty bruise right across his rib cage. But he almost knocked himself out in the fall, and scared the heck out of his teacher. All I could think was; "who's idea was it to have kids again, oh yeah! Jon's toast!" I love my kids- don't get me wrong! But day's like yesterday really get to you. Needless to say, I told the nurse this morning-" no offense, but I hope I DON'T see you again for awhile!" He smiled, and heartly agreed. He said while I've been a real trouper through all this, he understands completely! AMEN to that!

And of course, because of all the chaos of laundry, cleaning ( in general, and due to the "bug" situation) I think I've ripped a stitch or something **sigh**. I am "leaking" again, and have my one side packed with gauze. So today I'm going to sit, relax, and pray that the phone doesn't ring. 'Cause if it does, I may look a little like this:

Pray I don't go there!
The only good thing that happened is I fixed this darn blog!! New song- name that tune!!!!!! ( round 2- of course!)

Hope you all have a better day! Peace and Love, KC

**edit by me**
(I almost forgot! Horror of horrors!)

Happy Anniversary to my friend, lover, soul and heart. If not for you, Jon, my life would not be complete. I love you more than that day 21 years ago, when we took those first steps together. I pray we have at LEAST 21 more! Karen
