Mid Week Ramblings/SNAG


Yikes, has it been almost a week since I posted anything? Where does time fly to? I still don't have all my Steeler celebration pics uploaded. I went to work Monday feeling great, woke up Tues morning feeling nauseous. All the rest of the crappy stuff followed...headache, earache, sore throat. Yesterday, I was in bed all day. Today, I feel more back to life again. Tomorrow, I have to go to work if even for half a day. From what I've been reading on Facebook and here, it seems that so many are ill and feeling crappy. Megan is sick also. Joey is the only one in the house so far who's been spared. My BF is starting to get it now.

Anyway, today, my BFF that I grew up with contacted me on Facebook. We were inseparable all through school, had our first two children a month apart, our second a couple of months apart and then somehow we just drifted apart. We were each other's maids of honor. She was the sister I didn't have and vice versa. She has lived in eastern Pa for many years. So, how in the world do you ever let a friendship dry up and fall apart? Is it possible to rekindle it? I've wondered many times. Her brother still lives next door to my mom. The last time we spoke was when the year 2,000 came around. We are most definitely polar opposites but always have been. She could crack me up like no other person could. We spent most of our summers with her relatives in Bedford County chasing the country boys. Oh...the memories.

I want to thank everyone who gave me awards. I need to post them and pass them. Ugh, I'm terrible at doing that. I know Hollie and Sugar and Katie had some for me. I'm probably forgetting. I'll get back later and pass them on.

Becky is flying to Missouri to spend Valentine's Day with her BF. They are both my friends on Facebook. He does seem to really love her. She's leaving tomorrow and will be back Monday night. I'm anxious to see how this goes.

And that is about it for me. Almost the weekend. Boy, do I hate to take time off for sickness....ugh. Hugs to all....CHRIS

Valentines Day SNAGS



Just a quick entry to post some Valentines Day snags. I've been so busy this week. I'm behind on Blogger, Facebook, tags, my psp groups, etc. I've been spending about an hour a day trying to keep up with e-mail and read a few blogs. I'll catch up this weekend; at least that is my plan.

LOL...I live in Sixburgh. The parade for the Steelers went right by my building. Awesome! We spent our lunch hour right outside the entrance. We could reach out and touch and shake hands. I have some pictures of us celebrating and the parade that I haven't gotten uploaded yet so I guess you are still going to have to enter Steeler Country for another day or two.

Lovin the Black & Gold

SUGAR SHACK thanks, Sug!

LOL, what can I say? Pittsburgh born and bred. Gotta love the "Stillers." Try getting into Walmart today. I tried yesterday. There were absolutely no parking places. You had to wait for someone to pull out. I've never seen it that bad since it first opened. Ugh, everything black and gold is flying off the shelves. Parties galore. Terrible towels waving.

Mocha is wearing my jester hat in the pic below. This pic was from the previous SuperBowl when I was skinnier. I'm going to wear the same hoodie and get a pic of us this year. Just haven't done it yet. I'm trying to remember where our Terrible Towel is. The game will be interesting, for sure. Stevie Breaston on the Cardinals graduated from Woody High, our favorite high school in Pittsburgh. Becky graduated from Woody High. I was still a Woody High maniac when Breaston was quarterback in the Pa. State finals.

Anyway, onto my ultrasound. A cyst was found. I was terrified for a couple of days. It's definitely a cyst. I need a follow-up ultrasound in two months. If it's still there, everything is coming out which won't bother me one bit.

ROFL, I'm on Facebook now. Becky and her sweetie are officially engaged. He is also a friend of mine on FB. I sort of got addicted for this past week. It kept my mind busy and off of whatever was worrying me. You guys are all the best. I can't thank ya'll enough for your support.

I got my hair done yesterday. It's black now and not as short. Actually, I love it but hate my fat face. Can you believe I gained 5 lbs since I had my gyne appt. on January 22nd? I was in shock when I weighed myself at my BF's. 5 lbs in 9 days...ugh. I don't really know how. I haven't changed my eating habits. Yikes, I can't even begin to walk around here. There's 2 ft of snow. The roads are still terrible.
I'm still working on blog reading. If I missed you, I will get to you some time today. I hate being behind.
One more time: GO STEELERS!!!!!
