The Truth about Black Friday...

happy friday! so i had a good day today. chatted with my love and went to a local consignment shop and did some $0.69 shopping on books and clothes...wahoo! no black friday lines, all moved quiet smoothly. so here is really my take on black friday. let's call it what it really is; i posted it on facebook too! here is the link to my page (if you want to add me as a friend :)

"Black Friday should just be called the "Hunger Games". Let's think about this... at least one person from each family is chosen to go and stand in line and fight for a deal. You may die, but if you are the last one left you get your prize of a $98 40 inch TV and praised by all. Ohh...the rest of us are watching you and the madness unfold on the 6pm and 11pm news. IJS. #blackfriday #itreallyisthehungergames" "and may the odds be ever in your favor!"

did you all brave the black friday madness?

Words that make me wonder how you feel

hello all! hope you have a great Tuesday! i have a little bit of an issue and i know you all can provide some thoughts to it. so what do you think of the word "DITTO"? it was cute in the movie Ghost, but as a way to respond to something sweet that was said...i do not like it. i want a genuine response back not "DITTO". personally i hate that word, it seems like you really do not mean it. what does "DITTO" mean anyway? so here is why i am upset about the word...i was texting with my love and i was all about being sweet to him as always. well, i said to him: "thank you for sticking by and with me, i appreciate that a lot" and his reply was..."DITTO" ugh, i was SOO mad! then i said "i love you, chat with you soon after the game" again i guessed it... "DITTO". ugh. see why that word and i are not friends!! i feel like i derserved more than "ditto" in response.

i could also be taking things very personally right now as i have had a lot going on and a lot of stress as well as we have been back and forth with arguments and knit picking back and forth for a while, so i guess I AM just on the edge with the whole thing and wondering where it is all going from here. i want it to work, but not too sure what to do other than keep to myself and quiet until he comes around b/c i have no energy to fight anymore....that is my goal!

i have also linked up with the Marriage and Relationship Goals link up!

Friday 4 and Weight Loss!

yea! it is Friday and it should be a good one at that! i get to eat some yummy mexican for lunch: chimichanga with rice and beans and chips and salsa. that is my fav, and i could basically just eat the chips and salsa alone and be just fine! i have also lost some weight i am now in the 140's!! wahoo! i was in the 150's before. today i went from 158 lb to 145 lb, a 13 pound weight loss. i feel as if i have lost my butt, but maybe now since my clothes are big on me, that is why i cannot find my butt?? hmmm?? well, i have not been doing much to lose weight other than not eating that much, but with my span of eye surgeries and the anastassia and drops and meds, i have not really had much of an appetite to say the least. i do hope i can continue to keep it off! ok...

now on to the Friday 4 with Hillary at Feeling Beachie

Words that Scare me and Anniversary

happy Thursday! there was an accident right in front of the entrance of my sub-division last night and it got me thinking of words that scare me. it was a multi-car accident and i do hope that all will be well even though their cars were a mess. here are some words that just somehow bring in some fear to me when i hear them:

hospital, accident, snakes, miscarriage, roach, surgery, fat, break-up, death, cancer, disease, hurricane, unemployment, suicide, hate, liar, fire, un-happy, lost, etc. i am sure there are more, but these are the few that came to my mind right now. what are some words that you would not want to hear/scare you?

now for some happy day my love and i have been together for 4 years!!! Happy Anniversary to us! now, i will say, i did not think we would make it to this day b/c the past 3 months with my eye surgeries, past being brought up on both our sides, and lots of arguing over petty things that brought out other feelings, searching for better jobs, being 5 hrs away, etc. but we did it and the day is here! although it has been really rough, i think it has made us stronger and in some strange way more in love with each other and better communicators. now...let's see if HE will remember and wish us a Happy Anniversary!!

Would you Rather...

i had a writers block so i am so thankful for my new blogging friend over at "Innerworkings of the Female Mind" and her set of questions this Wednesday for "Would your Rather..." here we go:

would you rather...

1.  "be happy for 8hrs/day and poor or sad for 8hrs/day and rich?": hmmm, i think at this point i would rather be sad for 8 hrs a day and rich. money cannot by happiness, but it can sure take off some stress. also there are 24 hours in day and if 8 of them are sad ones, but i can get stuff done and function...i could handle it. and also, you can ALWAYS find something to be happy about. 

2. "live without music or live without tv?": i can live without music and be ok. i got to have my tv an shows and hey, for the music there are always the music awards on tv, so i may not be at a total loss.

3. "have a kangaroo or koala as your pet?": a koala

4. "be invisible or able to read minds?": read minds. that way i can maybe understand men a little better and be able to figure out people's wants and needs better.

5. "have superhuman memory or teleportation?": teleportation for sure! i would be able to travel the world in the blink of an eye and also it would be MUCH easier to see my love anytime and not have him commute 5 hours each way.

let's talk medical stuff...

happy monday to all! i am slowly but surely getting back in the swing of blogging...trying to at least. so i am linking up with Your Doctor's Wife-Medical Monday because i sure have had a lot of medical scares the past 3 months. here we go!

so i think i can link up this week for medical monday. i am and have been thinking about medical school for a while and i still am. i struggled with the sciences in college, but still enjoyed them and graduated with an overall gpa above 3.4. then i went on to do my masters in public health and had a 4.0 gpa. so there is some hope right? that is what i do not know. should i try and get in to a USA school or go for the Caribbean route? rumor has it that Caribbean trained doctors are not as well received by their USA colleges? is this the case? what are some other options in the medical field other than nursing or pa that one can go into and still come out a "doctor"? sometimes i think my chances are slim to none, but there is always a way around something right? what do you all suggest? 

now here is some insight to my medical issue. both of my retina's detached at my young age of 29 (i am still 29). it just happened spontaneously after i recovered from being sick/systemic infection. i guess even though i was taking antibiotics for it, it must have still decided to play with my retina. i have had blurry vision since september. i have had the retina repair surgery with a vitrectomy. i hope to be fully recovered and back to "normal" vision before the new year...perhaps by Christmas time?

and for another link up going on about the kitchen and food...yummo...check out this link up over at Never the Same Spice Twice blog. i sure would love to make this. i am a fan of one pot meals. i bet this paired up with some bread/rolls would be SOOOO good!one pot creamy chicken and noodles. mmm...i can almost smell it now!
One Pot Creamy Chicken and Noodles- simple and easy
