Happy New Year!

Wishing you a blessed 2010! 2009 is on its way out and too late to change, correct or redo anything. Life is short and precious and we never know when we will be called out. Make each moment count! Don't forget to tell loved ones you do!

I will be undergoing corrective eye surgery on January 14th. The Lord and power of prayer can accomplish many things and I know I will come out like my old self! Hmmmm, not sure this is what we all want! More on THAT later! I just want to be able to see! I know I am beautiful on the inside and loved by adoring family and my dear beloved friends and cherished co-workers.

In a few weeks I hope to not look like this woman I don't recognize in the mirror:
Not that there is ANYTHING wrong with how I look! I just can not get used to it and it is no longer just about vanity . . .. . . I want to be able to see! Every time I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, I have to ask "Who is that *LADY IN RED*?"

BTW, I am returning to the gym on Monday because I feel like I am physically able to now and not because I am trying to be "Super Girl," "Wonder Woman," "Hero," or any of the other names I was called when I wanted to go back to the gym three weeks after my near-fatal accident! Thank you for your concern and support but I sincerely believe I am ready and, more importantly, my entire body no longer hurts when I just THINK about going back to the gym!

You remember "THE" accident back . . . early November . . . was it just a dream? No! Take a look at my face! It took that and a little more to wake me up and learn to appreciate loved ones and life, but I do more and more with each passing day! Wouldn't you agree that I am, overall, a saner, nicer person? I think you should! I have held my tongue many a times since the accident! Maybe I should have held it more, but I am learning and doing my best! Anyway the accident gave me this sunnier disposition I now possess . . . just ask any of my cherished co-workers! Also, the "cute," "sweet," "endearing," "scatterbrain" thing I have had going on since the accident some of you have grown to love . . . I know we were all blaming it on the medication but it has been about three weeks since the last time I took meds! We should all also pray this is NOT permanent. PLEASE!!!!! I have had SEVERAL people tell me they like the difference in me because I am not such a know-it-all like I was before the accident, but remember, I would not have had to be such a know-it-all if some of you had at least known SOME of it! Remember, I'm a little bit crazy and I'm a little bit sane and all of this makes me the wonderful, loveable, bubbly woman before you!

Recently, Chaz Cameron shared a book with me . . . and I am so grateful to him for that . . . and I read something in it . . . actually a lot of stuff, but I am getting long-winded here . . . and I was trying really, really hard not to . . . I would like to share with you. It had a profound impact on my life . . . "The way we judge ourselves is the worst judge that ever existed." Don Miguel Ruiz . . . Think of this whenever you are being too hard on yourself for personal mistakes. It is VERY liberating! Forget and let go of the past! Don't wait to have your own near death experience before appreciating life and loved ones. May you live 2010, and every year thereafter, like it is your last!

Just when I think

things cannot get any better . . . they do!

By now, all important people in my life, should know about the accident I survived on November 7th.

Nothing has been better than returning to life, family, church and work and being embraced by family and friends! I am so blessed to be loved and appreciated by so many! I have had kindness bestowed upon me beyond words. I thought I was down and out and family and friends came in and lifted me on their wings! How much more blessed can I get?!?

I was to have corrective surgery on my right eye on December 17th. It was rescheduled for January 14th. I had been VERY busy feeling sorry for myself. It struck me one night as I sat in church with my sisters and mother how much more there is to life than one's appearance! Life is so precious and good for me at this moment! I am ALIVE and loved! What more can anyone ask for? It has come to my attention that my vanity is just so . . . unnecessary! If that can be believed!?! I am surrounded by people that love me for what is in my heart and soul! I have discovered late in life that this IS all that really matters!

I am truly attempting to be a person who speaks kind words and completes kind actions. That is a lot easier said than done! There are so many folks we encounter in life that do not deserve these things! I could just go on and on about them! But what I really want is nothing more than to focus on life's good moments and have good thoughts! I have to tell myself repeatedly that these people mean nothing personal by their actions and just continue to love them for the human beings that they are. Is that not why we were put on earth?

I'm a little

vain . . . and worried! I'm afraid I will not look like my profile photo again. And I am sorry, but I think I was a very pretty woman! :( I had some serious injury to my face and the right side is fallen . . . and cannot get up! lol Seriously, because of the car accident, there has been some nerve and muscle damage to the eye area on the right side of the face where I received the brunt of the force from the truck that hit us. I wish I could make myself show you the photos I have been taking! :( Maybe when it gets better. My first appointment isn't until December 11th, so I will be looking like this for awhile. I've already warned the guys at the office! I told them I would not be that beautiful girl they were used to seeing at the office anymore and I had one of the guys ask me "When were you a beautiful girl?" phfffft!

Really . . .

YES! I thank God I am alive. I was involved in a bad car wreck late night Friday, early Saturday morning. Broken ribs, punctured lung and stitches to my forehead was VERY sobering! Time for a lifestyle change I believe! When I feel better, I will come on here and let you know what happened!

Drum roll please . . .

And the winner is Cassie! Thanks for everyone who played. Not a lot of folks but it was fun none the less I think anyway! Cassie, please email me your addy so I can know where to send your goody bag!

I have had a LOT of changes since the last time I was on here, among them, stuff I have created and have not had a chance to take pics of! But soon!

Thanks to all the ladies that guessed correctly! It was a man's 6-pack of abs! I thought it was some kind of orange bug! lol

3 months, 2 weeks and 3 days lost forever

Have you ever met someone and afterwards thought to yourself "What a waste of time and energy!?!" I lived to be 47 yo and that had never happened to me. I have a friend to thank for this, but hey, she did not know any better. She only knew him from work. We all know that the face we present at work is not always the same face we wear at home with family or with friends. I like to think to myself that this man does not remember me like that. Well, on the last day words were said and things were done that probably should not have been, but by then, he was asking for it! lol I have come to understand that what he did, he did because that is the kind of person he is and it is what he had in his heart and it had NOTHING to do with who I am! There was no love or respect there and I consider it a blessing and a gift that he walked away the way that he did!
Who could make me feel this way?

Finally . . .

moved into our new home. Getting settled and not so settled . . . if you know what I mean!?! We also got a dog . . . the cutest little Chihuahua and Terrier mix you could ever lay eyes on! She looks like a golden lab puppy! However, she won't sit still long enough to take her photo! UGH! Savage she is not! We named her Fish! Nina's idea . . . enough said.

I plan to post pics of our new abode and Fish, if she stays still long enough, soon, so stay posted! :)

Jason is doing really well with the new therapist! He's still employed and we are all so grateful about that. He survived the massive layoffs and early retirement buyouts! He is now in charge of cleaning the doctors' lounge and keeping it stocked so he works all by himself. Perfect for him and he seems to love it. All is good in his world! :)

Nina is now working . . . what is considered full time . . . at Pub 50 as a bartender! No more late nights at CiCi's as a barmaid and I cannot tell you how happy I am about that! We have our moments, but the good thing about that is that . . . well . . . we haven't killed each other! Otherwise I would not be on here updating you! lol We really should play it safer because we obviously have lots of places to hide the body! Nina briefly dated a Lamesa police officer and he regaled us with stories of dead bodies he found in our neighborhood. He comforted us with the knowledge that these folks were all killed somewhere else and only dumped near here! :( I question if that was meant to comfort us?

As for my miserable or not miserable situation . . . well, I chose for the longest time to be miserable without him, but he wormed his way back into my life with . . . of course . . . promises of lots of beautiful things. And he has the most beautiful things to say to me . . . well, of course he does! He's 58 years old! He has had a lot of practice! :) But things seem to be not much different and above all else, I want to be number 1 in whomever I chose to share my time and life with. Because he would be number 1 in mine!

Finally, after moving, I turned . . . gasp . . . I almost told you! ;) Needless to say, I had a birthday and here are some pics I want to share with you.

This is me with my two OLDER sisters, Eva on the left and Lilly on the right. They do not like for me to always point out that they are older, but please, like as if I can hide that? lol ;) I had never noticed before now . . . how much we look alike! Aren't my sisters lucky?!? YES, THEY ARE! lol

Here are the usual hosts! Lilly and Clyde. What would our family do without them? I love them for letting me stay with them as long as I did when I first came back to Lubbock and all the support that they provide our family.

Here is Clyde at his attempt of a "sexy" pose. He stated that it was an imitation of Joe Cartwright from Bonanza. He actually thought I knew what show he was talking about! As if I would have ever heard of such a show at my age! lol ;)

Finally, I invited all the guys from the office, which of there are 7! Kelly was the only "gringo" . . . well from the office, anyway . . . to show up! lol He stayed quite awhile too and I was ever so touched by his attendance.

As you can see it was rather well attended. I loved that so many folks were there! I like to think that they attended because of the love they have for me and not because of the free food! lol

This is a birthday cake one of Nina's friends, Mando, bought for me! Isn't it the cutest? He stated he couldn't figure out which bug to buy for me, but that he thought the ladybug was fitting of me! He didn't even know that red is one of my favorite colors!

This is my brother, Manual, and his wife, Priscilla, and their daughter, Anastasia.

This is my only single brother Jimmy, my brother-in-law, Richard, Eva's husband and Juan, my niece, Frances', live-in boyfriend. And watch out single ladies! My brother is picky! If you do not have a car, a job or a house, please no need to apply! ;)

This is my sister Eva with her grandbaby, one of the newer additions to the family. She's such a proud granny! lol

Here is my nephew, Jesse and April, parents of one of the newest additions to the family. OK, and April is one of the other "gringos" to attend, but she wasn't from the office. She's part of the family!

This is my great-nephew, Freddy, III. I do not understand why he insists on calling me Aunt Ema when I have told him many times to call me Great Aunt Ema! lol

Finally, remember the forgotten birthday cake from 2007? Well, this year, it was not forgotten and my sister Eva commissioned this masterpiece for my birthday celebration. First, ok, my name was misspelled. Secondly, can you tell what it is? Well, if you post your guess as to what it is . . . by . . . let's say November 1st, I will put all the correct answers in a cup and have Nina draw a name . . . and I will send out a grab bag of papercrafting goodies! If you post a link to your blog back to my blog and let me know the link in your post, I will enter your name twice! I'm giving a longer period than usual, because since my long absence I have lost a lot of readers! :( But I hope to be back in full swing soon and I thought this would be a great way to get started again. Do not forget to let me know in your post how to get back to you if you are the winner!

Oh, and lest I forget, I made out like a bandit as well! I received a sleep shirt, a pretty white sweater, a stationary set and pumpkin-scented candles in orange jars! Plus, $160! I haven't spent it yet. I keep losing weight and am saving it to buy myself some clothes when I hit a plateau again. Which I hope is soon because I am running out of stuff to wear! lol For those that are interested, I will not tell you what I weigh, but I will tell you how much I have lost since last November . . . at last weigh in, 55 pounds! Amazing right?!? Just think, all I did was give up bread, sodas, flour tortillas, sweets, sugar in my coffee, drink non-fat milk, and just a few weeks ago added exercise to my plan. I'm up to 45 minutes at walking speed of 3MPH. I went from a size 26 to a size 16 or 18, depending on the cut. And the most important thing of all . . . I do not deprive myself and I do not make people accomodate my new eating habits. Life is too short to not enjoy dessert first! ;)

***Disclaimer: Please do not be offended by my use of the term "gringo." We use it and I have used it just now with love and affection and do not mean to offend anyone by it.***

Mi Vida Loca!

Well, a quick update for those I don't speak to often enough . . .

Jason is still living on his own! YEA! He is still working at Covenant! YEA! He is seeing a new therapist and that seems to be going really well also. Happy, happy all the way around.

Nina is still living with me. She's still working as a bartender, but has decided to go to college! YEA! We are working on financial aide and hopefully getting her started in January 2010. We bought her a 1997 Saturn . . . purple! Things are going along smoothly . . . for now.

I have quite a few changes. For starters, this . . .

And want to know why I have this change. Because I love pain! It is going so well for us that I am at the point that I have to decide whether I want to be miserable without him . . . or miserable with him. lol It is such a long story that I do not even know where to start. And I really don't have the time right now. I just wanted to update all.

We're also in the process of moving and hopefully that will change everything! I'll be able to come on here and post away and by then I will have decided for sure which miserable I want to be and can share it with you. Till then . . . :)

A letter to a friend

My dearest friend,

I feel like it has been a year and a day since we last spoke! lol Really though, wasn't it just about a month ago? You regaled me with stories of your birthday bash and I regaled you with . . . well, you know . . . public forum! lol Anyway, I often think of you and miss talking to you but of late, life seems to just keep getting in the way!

Let me update you a little bit . . . my new-to-me red car is just giving me one thrilling ride after another. Each day it gets me to work and back home without making any weird sounds or jerking! LOVE IT!

Jay? He's moved out on his own again! This time, he's moved into . . . get this . . . a one-bedroom house. Folks are, of course, criticizing me for dumping him in a drug-infested, crime-ridden neighborhood, but those are the folks that didn't have to live with him! It is not like that at all! Nina and I went to see it first and we thought the neighborhood seemed nice . . . and just last year, I went and saw two houses for myself in the same neighborhood that just did not work out for one reason or another. I think one did not have appliances and the other did not have W/D hook-ups. He seems quite happy at not having a neighbor on the other side of the wall or above or below. It's a small little house, but perfect for him! After all it's just him and his TV and video games. What else can a young man ask for? It's maybe about two miles to Covenant Medical Center. He's still employed there and although there have been talks of "restructuring" he still has a job and he seems happy with that as well. He's got a new counselor and we are excited at the possibilities this holds. He just started, but I'm very optimistic that this will be a turning point for him!

Nina? Well . . . now she's moved in with me! I must have someone live with me for a few months. Two car payments! Not sure I can do that on my own. She still has her old apartment and will not be moving completely out until the end of June, but for the most part, she's been staying with me since Jay moved out on the 12th. It's nice. She and I used to be very close when she was young and now that the "tween" years are behind us, we are once again finding things to talk about. She has always been a reader as I have been and . . . get this . . . she's started listening to C&W music! Funny as I seem to be "outgrowing'" that and listening more to Tejano music, but at least I know the artists she's referring to! She continues to work as a bartender and seems happy with that and well . . . what can I really do about that? She earns a good living and I guess that's what is most important to her at this time.

Did I tell you a got a new cell phone? Yes, a Moto Q 9c! I barely know how to answer it but nonetheless I feel so incredibly smart carrying around a "smart" phone! lol I had to change my phone number and I sent you a text message with the new number. I hope you got it!

Well, that's just a quick recap because what I really wanted to tell you is of my latest "discovery." We talked about this once and you raved about how liberating they were that I had to give them a try. Since losing weight, I find that my pants are riding down and tops are riding up. I did not want folks seeing my "granny panties!" So I had a look around and, to my dismay, all I could find were thongs! Do you remember our conversations about these? Well, I hope you do because I bought a pair based on your recommendation! It has taken some getting used to and there are times that I still look to put something on when I realize I already have something on! lol And you are right, they are somewhat liberating and . . . I cannot even begin to tell you . . . I even at times . . . feel quite sexy in them! lol I find that they also come with a dilemma and hence, you find me here writing you to ask for advice . . . although I've grown to enjoy wearing them I really feel as if I have a huge problem and I hope you have an answer for me or a suggestion, an idea . . . something to help me out! First, at my age, all of a sudden I've become quite modest! I must turn every shade of red when I have to pay for my purchase and it's a young man running the cash register! I believe that with time, I'll grow quite used to this whole novel idea, but what I most need help with is . . . how do I get the cashier to stop laughing . . . rolling around on the floor hugging themselves . . . crying "hahahahahahahaha, stop, *gasp* please stop, hahahahahahahaha!" long enough to ring up my purchase so I can be on my merry way? 8(

I'm Scrapping!

or pretending to anyway! :) Here is my latest:

Not quite a master piece, but for someone who can't find her mojo, I don't think it was too bad. I was using my Spellbinders Wizard! I bought it last summer and had not had the real opportunity to use it. I'd just played with it to see what it could do. Spellbinders was hosting a challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers so I jumped on the chance to possibly win $50 in products. No such luck, but it got me scrapping! Anyway, all the leaves are from the Spellbinders Shapeabilities. I just love the shapeabilities! I know everyone is using the nestabilities, edgeabilities and all the other wonderful abilities ;) Spellbinders has, but I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the shapeabilities. First I wadded up most of the leaves to give them that natural weathered look. Then I rubbed them with the wonderful Craf-T Products luster rub-ons. IRL, some of them have an almost metallic kind of look. These pictures are wicked old pictures. They are from fall 2003. Nina was 15 at the time. But I found them among my mother's belongings when I moved into her apartment. The fall paper is actually from the 2009 Avon calendar! I gave the calendar to Nina in case she needed one and she tore out all the pretty pictures. When she saw this one, she knew I wold love the colors and she was right! I had to use it! The CS is Bazill. I still lack the journaling but that has always been my downfall. I have never liked journaling for my scrap pages! Doesn't that just make me an awful scrapper? I tell folks I don't like journaling because I never know what to "say." I then usually have to pick them up off the floor cause they are just rolling around laughing so hard! I don't know why!?! Anyway, this weekend, I have every intention of finding my mojo. I'm quite sure it is somewhere in this apartment! :) Before I close, let me leave you with this thought . . . remember you cannot escape the consequences of your choices. I tell myself that everytime I want to order the Big Mac and chocolate shake instead of the side salad and fruit and yogurt parfait! :)

My friend, Jo Gress, has tagged me! Her blog is Buckeye Joe! Sad to say, I've never been to her blog before today, but what a wealth of information I gleamed from it! She has an inspirational post on the right hand side that I may just have to copy and post it somewhere on here. Her music is also QUITE entertaining! lol I am a-thinkin' she's a country gal! Not that it is a bad thing, cause I'm a bit of a country girl myself!

Sunday, February 1, 2009


I'm finally out on my own . . . well, sort of! Long story short, Jay had to come back to live with me and I am still not sure how I feel about that other than to write I hope it is not for long!

Anyway, really, really, really long story . . . my mom moved in with my oldest sister, Lilly, and I moved into my mother's apartment and took over it and most of her possessions. I know how I feel about that but this is a public forum and if you really want to know the scoop, you'll have to call me! :)

What's the first thing I bought? (Well, not really the first, cause I had to save up for it and I've been in this apartment since November, but it's the first pricey item!) You know it! I'm here aren't I? The sad thing is that there's no DSL in this area so guess how I'm downloading? Come on . . . guess . . . DIAL UP! UGH! :( What can I do? I'm checking into other alternatives, including MOVING again! We shall have to wait and see.

So anyway, it's been so long since I've been on here and I have soooooo much to tell you, but I just told you . . . I'm on DIAL UP! . . . so I'll give you the abbreviated version of what's happened in the past few months.

Moved into my own place (my mom's old apartment, hey, it's my place to me! :) ) Kind of rough in the beginning because my mom's 88 years old and this apartment is a 2 bedroom that she's lived in since about 1993 . . . get the picture? Lots of stuff packed into this place. So it was kind of topsy turvy, but not anything like what I showed you in my MasterCard story so it was all kind of good. :) Yeah, things are great, my mom has given me so many things that I could never afford to buy for myself and I am sooooooooo grateful to her for doing this. I have bought a few things, of course, RED APPLIANCES! I'm loving it! I had to so that they could match my red can opener! No, not THAT red can opener! :) I bought a red toaster, blender, coffee maker, crock pot and mini crock pot! :) Oh, and some of those Paula Deen red cookware. I did not get the whole set, just two frying pans, but it's a little at a time for now. And you know what freaks me out about the pans? They can go in the oven up to 350 degrees and they have "rubberized, dual-riveted handles for a comfortable and secure grip." I'm not trying it! Anyway, I'll eventually get the whole set. That's my goal for now! :) I have the computer as well and as slow as it is, I'm just so happy to have it! :) This next week, I'm also getting a 32" plasma! I'm really hyped about that since I've been watching satellite TV on a 17" monitor! :( Well, it's either the TV or a sofa. Something to sit on or something to watch? What a dilemma! Yeah, it's the TV for now! :)

Nina's moved to Lubbock. She's employed and living on her own and all I can say about that is HALLELUJAH! And that's VERY good. We are getting along so much better now as well and I am very happy about that! :D She's working as a server and she really, really likes her job. I keep telling myself that's the important thing! She's only been working there since early November and she was promoted to server trainer a couple of weeks ago. She's now training to be a bartender and she's really excited about that because she's seen what some of the other bartenders are taking home in tips. There's a co-worker that is a single mom, owns her home and drives a "nice" car (Nina's words) and Nina tells me that if she can do it, then so can she. Did you follow that? I just made her promise me she wouldn't try the single mom part though. :) It's not the job that a mom can brag about but like I wrote before, she's happy working there and really likes her job. I have dinner there Friday evenings (with Jay when he is not working) and if you saw her working, you'd see how happy she is. She found a boyfriend back in November as well and I have to tell you that she seems to be losing interest in him and I definitely know how I feel about that and that's all I'm gonna say about it! :D

Jay is still working at the hospital and recently had his 3-month review. He is getting his benefits as well and get this . . . his benefits are much better than mine! :( But it's all good anyway! :) He says he loves his job and co-workers.

Car I bought has turned out to be a novel and a half, but hey, for the most part, it gets me to work. Fortunately, Lubbock does not get a lot of snow so not having a heater is not so bad, unless it's freezing and wet! :) Thankfully, we've only had 2 days like that!

Oh, and before I forget! I decided late last year that I needed to make some life changes cause I was just getting so heavy that I was not comfortable. I cut out eating bread and drinking sodas. I am drinking more water and on occassion, I have had a soda, but when I have it's a diet Dr. Pepper (and I refuse to drink any other diet drink!) and since Christmas, I think I've had maybe five. Cutting out the bread was not so hard because hey I'm a Mexican and I could have tortillas! :) But I was inspired by my sister, Eva (she told my mom this is what she was doing, so it was her idea), and replaced those with corn tortillas. Kind of hard in the beginning cause I'm not a big fan of corn tortillas, but now I just LOVE them! I've become a GROWN-UP and started drinking my coffee without SUGAR! I do still add cream though cause otherwise . . . UGH! I changed the milk from low fat to 1%. I didn't really think it was anything drastic, but folks started asking if I was losing weight. Then, one Wednesday a couple of weeks ago, I put on a jacket that I bought back last fall. I think I may have mentioned it, but not sure. Eva had given me a gift certificate to Beall's for my birthday cause there was a jacket and skirt I JUST HAD TO HAVE! When I bought them, the jacket did not close and I almost did not buy it cause of that, but Eva said that I should and I could just wear a blouse under it. So I half-heartedly bought it, but I don't like it when jackets don't close! :) Well, when I put that jacket on a couple of weeks ago, it closed! Completely freaked me out! I just HAD to go weigh myself I was so freaked out about it. I'd lost 25 pounds! Mind you, I've not been putting much effort into it and I really did not think that changing the way I was eating was THAT life altering! 8( Can you imagine what I could do if I added exercise to this? Something to think about! :) Oh, and BTW, my sister Lilly says I am losing the weight like that cartoon woman for the commercial I think it's called Slimquick or something like that. In the commercial, the cartoon woman says she and her husband go on a diet and she says "this is what happened to him" and he shrinks in size all over and then she says "this is what happened to me" and she only shrunk on the top! Yeah! I had to go to Lane Bryant and get measured and buy something that would help me pick myself up! It is NOT a pretty picture! :(

So anyway, that's just a quick recap of what's been going on. I hope I'll be able to play with paper soon and show you what I come up with. I know, I know, short quick story, but hey, you don't know that I've been on here for almost TWO HOURS! Did I mention I have DIAL UP? :(

:) Hope you come back later to see what else I can accomplish in 2009! :)
