Help a friend please?

One of my high school girlfriends has written a book. She also has a web page that you can visit.

go to

If you have ever been abused by a family member or you know someone who has been then you might want to buy them her book. It is truthful (I know first hand) and its painful. It even may help you heal (or the one who you give it too)

She not only wrote this book but did the illustration of the cover. She is multi-talented.

So please take a look. Its on Amazon in book section. Search time for refelctions and healing.

You can also find it at Barns and Noble. Go check it out.

What the HELL is wrong with F*****people?

Ok, Now I'm seriously pissed! Most of you all know that I hurt my back several years ago due to my sister not having her braces on. Then it got aggravated from the car accident last Oct. The first time I injured it the Doctor told me not to lift anything more than 1 lb! So now you have a little information to help you understand why I'm so pissed!!!

Today, I had a Doctors appointment. You know Physical therapy?
Well I'm getting out of my car and I notice this lady running across the parking lot. Not giving it much thought I locked my car and started in. Only to realise that the lady who had been running was now sitting on the steps of the building crying. I ask her if she's ok. She tells me no she thinks she dislocated her shoulder. I ask if I should call 911. She says no she just wants to get into the building where she works. I say ok can you get up? She says maybe if you help me.
So I tried to help her up by grabbing her under her left arm. Mean while I happen to notice that there are about 3 or 4 people standing there in the doorway of the building just watching. After the third try of trying to get up her all the while she is crying and screaming in pain, another lady comes out to help me get her up.
As soon as she was standing the other lady disappeared. (WHAT?) So I slowly walk her to the door and grab the handle and open the door (and everyone is just standing there) I got her into the building. I starting walking her towards the bank of elevators, and a lady comes running out and asks the lady I was helping in what happened. She told her and the other lady helped me get her into the office where they both work.
I then go upstairs to my appointment only to realise that I can hardly move. SO I tell my Doc and he sets me up with the roller machine, which really hurt. I then had the electrodes on my back then I went for an adjustment and he also used a electric massage thingy which helped until he hit the lower part of my back. I was able to get up and walk somewhat better than when I first walked in but oooohhhhhh does it hurt!!!!!!

After getting done I checked the time and seen that I had a little extra before having to get home so Mr Gab can go to work, I stopped down to the office where I took the lady. I walked in and inquired how she was doing. They told me that she ended up going to the hospital. So I said please tell her I hope shes ok soon. They asked who I was and I said the one who walked her in and gave them my name. They said thanks for helping her.

BUT PLEASE TELL ME......WHY? Why no one wanted to help? Not even to open doors.
Mr Gab told me because they didn't want to get hurt either. I'm like that is just so wrong though but yet I can understand. Thing is I just couldn't not help! Even if my back was perfectly A-OK I would still stop and help. It's just the way I am.

So I really hope she's ok, and I'm glad I helped even though it hurt me, because honestly I don't think anyone else would have and who knows how long she would have sat there hadn't I helped.

I finally figured it all out now give me the money!

I DID IT! I figured it all out. It's not about the people who come to try out for American Idol! It the drama of the judges! OMG. I swear... no wait I wont swear, but believe me Ive thought of it. So we get a few nuts on there that really and truly should not have opened their mouths. And then we go to.........the judges. Now Barman has put it clearly in a comment in my last blog and I quote" An if Paula is still a judge, do you really think she is a "professional"? She has more comments about what they look like or other truly worthless stuff then anything that is important. That and Randi, I love the man, dog, but I really do not listen to much to what he says either. The only person I think you really get anything of use from is Simon. He may be mean a lot but you best pay attention to what he is saying. I know this time they are suppose to have a 4th judge but having not watched the show I have no idea what she is like."
Barman hon you hit the nail truly on the head! Simon even though he is tough he seems to be the only one to keep the stuff real. The girls last night and tonight just had so much "drama" that it was all about them and not the singers. To be honest I cant believe that any one of the 4 judges would laugh at some one while they were singing. COME ON please be a little nice to these fools I mean folks, they are trying their hardest to sing. Its not their fault that they have no clue that they shouldn't be here in front of millions of people making an ass of them self's.
Now lets explore another item that happened tonight. Guy got done singing they all said no and he started to walk out he he tells them to be careful. They took that as a threat. Should they have taken it as a threat? Or should they have thought wow this guy is concerned for our safety that we don't fall down some steps or to be a little careful out there driving? I myself understood they guy saying be careful for what it was meant to be...or at least what I hope he meant it to be. I guess because after having my car accident and knowing that it can happen to anyone at any time that I too find my self saying be careful. I was one of these people who always figured I was not going to be in a car accident. After all I went my whole childhood without being in a car accident and most of my adult life without being in a car accident, then one day bam some one runs a red light and there I am getting hit. Ok now I may have miss lead you a tad. Because I was in a car accident before when a young kid fell asleep at the wheel and hit me. But no one was hurt in that accident. My accident in Oct we were hurt. And again it wasn't my fault. But the point I guess I'm making is that even though I was involved in that other accident it wasn't one where someone was hurt so I discounted it as an accident. My version of what accident is is when you crash and people are hurt. and yeah I know that's really wrong. Because when you are in a car accident where your car is damaged then you have been in an accident whether your fault or not. I got a letter in the mail the other day.... the city is going to court to charge the lady who ran the red light on Feb 2nd. I'm going to be there.
Well this week has warmed up considerably since last week but they said this is just temporary and we will be freezing again in a day or two. :-(
any who how hope your week is going well.

American Idol-Busy-Games-Cold

Have you gone shopping with me yet? Have you just looked? Please do so. I'm not asking you to buy but should you see something that you would like go ahead and make that purchase.

So I've been really busy these last few days. I've been busy playing on pogo, Ive been busy playing on Facebook, babysitting the boys and trying to stay warm.

Today is the 4th straight day we've had below zero temps. and today the kids didn't have school. It was and wasn't because of the weather. Stumped? Well let me explain. The buses that take the kids to school have bio-diesel fuel. This fuel isn't suppose to freeze but with our weather as cold as it has been it didn't exactly freeze but it did gel where it then breaks away and sinks to the bottom of fuel tanks and clogs the lines. Yesterday when it was around -15 some of the buses broke down leaving kids out in the freezing cold. Two of my grandkids were on one such bus. I myself thought that I should have kept the kids home yesterday but in the end they went. One reason is The oldest grandson got a ride from his mom to school then I went and picked him up after school. The second oldest I drove to the bus stop. Then the kindergartner, the bus stops in front of my house so he just goes from our front door out to bus. Again I drive down to bus stop after school and pick them up. But in between when others are being dropped off anything can happen such as a bus breaking down. The boys said they huddled under a tree and waited about 3-5 minutes for a replacement bus. They said they didn't get to cold waiting but I think they just didn't want to admit it as they had pretty red cheeks.
And the baby (he's almost two but to me he's still my baby lol), He had a terrible cold so I had to ask daughter to take him in and he ended up having pneumonia, poor little guy. He's with daddy this weekend so I just have 3 boys which was good for today with them all home from school. There is no school Monday of course and then I will have all 4.

This week American Idol started again and I was right there watching it. Again I can not believe that there are folks who dress like well gosh idiots! I was thinking morons but didn't want to go there. And those who really cant sing a note and was told no but they kept trying to get the judges to change their minds please oh please get a life. The one guy who sticks the most in my mind was the guy who said he mom didn't support him and she didn't believe that he was a good singer and when he came out he cried! WHAT? Are you kidding me? If my mom said to me don't go you cant sing worth a dang, and I went anyways and the judges told me NO and I just stood there and kept singing like that was going to change their minds I just wouldn't go out and stand in front of the cameras for all of America to see and cry! And the lady who sounded like she was threatening the judges oooh wee look out! I'm waiting for the news to say she tried to harm one of the judges because she didn't get picked. Again these people are professionals and know if you can carry a tune or even have a chance to work with a voice coach and possibly end up being our next idol. But please if they say no just say thank you and walk away. Don't swear, don't cry, don't threaten. Keep you dignity and leave.

Ok I'm climbing down off my soap box!
Hope your all keeping warm. They say that by Monday we will be up into the 30's and will be there a couple of days and we will have some of this snow melting. I will believe it when I see it!

Welcome to 2009!

Well we are already 8 days into 2009 and so far so good. I've been a little busy here just trying to do every day things and then.... wellllll lets see remember back when I said I was seeing red?
Well that person has annoyed me so much that the red seems to be part of me now. I spoke with my sister C and it made her almost as mad as it had made me.
The thing of it is this:
This person hasn't been in our lives for many years. Then through some ways and means they all of a sudden have a desire of how to run my life and or tell me what I'm doing wrong. Many of you know that Mr Gab and I have had our house in foreclosure a couple of times this past year. And as you may or may not know we are sorta still there. Now honestly it would take a whole lotta time to try and explain it to you as to what sorta means and I want to get this posted yet today.
Any way this family member seems to think that if I didn't go shopping at costly places such as Macy's and Daytons(back when there was a Daytons) that I would have money. Also if I hadn't given all my kids everything they ever asked for I would have money. And if I didn't eat at fancy restaurants all the time I'd have money. And if I would have slept in cheaper hotels/motels I'd have money.
Do you get the picture? Ok so now let me tell you a little secret! This family member is the one who goes to the most expensive stores they would never dream of shopping K-mart Target or even Wal-Mart or even a thrift store.(these are where I shop)
They would never dream of eating at McDonalds, Arby's or Taco Bell (where I eat when I can afford to)
And my kids never ever had name brand anything when they were growing up!!!!!
Why then are we so broke? Well lets see....economy had something to do with it, prices going up faster than our pay checks. Oh yes and I did buy some collectibles that I guess I really didn't need. But here's the thing, all the while our kids were growing up we made sure they had a roof over their heads and food in their tummy's and clothes to wear and a warm bed to sleep in. While Mr Gab and myself went without.
Now here is the funniest thing ever.........................................If you knew my daughter and some of her friends they would all tell you that the jacket I'm wearing right now for winter I've had for like 20 years! In fact the one friend hasn't seen me since I came back here to care for my dad and when they seen me they are like you still have that Jacket and your still wearing it? Like they just couldn't believe that I would still have such an out of date style and still wearing it.
In fact my oldest grandson's dad hasn't seen me in 13 years and was surprised that I was still wearing the same ole coat!
One of the other places our money went was into fixing up this house a few times so that we could live comfortably, like when we went from a 2 bedroom to a four bedroom. Like when we added a 4 car garage on, to house our cars so Mr Gab didn't have to lay in the snow to fix them when they broke down. Oh yes and that's another thing Mr Gab always fixed our cars rarely did we ever take them in to a mechanic.
Whew I'm done!

Anyways if you haven't had a chance to check out the store over there on the left hand side under shop with me at lookatwhats4u. Please do and take a minute to sign my guess book. We just had it all updated and are pretty proud of the things we offer in our store. I'm not asking you to buy but should you see something you'd like please feel free to go ahead and purchase it.
Oh and if you have visited it once or twice in the past know that our front page items change daily.
Hope you week is going well.
