OK, so at work today I found out I offended a woman I work with. This is fine because she explained why to me and I let her know I wouldn't wear my hair a certain way any longer at work. Yes, my hair. I guess the way I wore my hair today represents slavery to her. Well, I explained in my culture women have worn their hair this way as well but I never thought of it as bad. I mean hell Lucy wore her hair this way on I Love Lucy.

I then come to find out that I've been the topic of conversation with other people as well in regards to my hair. I HATE gossip. I ended up writing an email to my boss about it all and spoke with someone after work who said I did the right thing.

I felt so bad all day....I left for lunch and that was nice but I can't believe people have nothing better to do then to discuss my hair and how I wear it. My one co-worker who told me about everyone else told me she called my boss today to say that my hair do today offended people and they were coming to her about it. Seriously, she called my boss. I then called my boss and apologized that I offended people. Why did I apologize? I'm so sick of the gossip at work. As the wise person I talked to reminded me this is one of the many reasons I will be leaving there in April.

I will go to work on Monday, do my job, keep my headphones on, and hope nothing else I do offends people. Ugghhh really people need to grow up. I've included me with my hair done the way I wore it today. I can't believe this actually offended people.

To slip or Not To slip

So I found out that now that I've lost weight and can wear the cute dresses that I may want a slip to not have static cling going on like I went through yesterday!

I went on a mission yesterday to get a slip and realized I ended up buying not a slip but clothes for E, his father, and a shirt for me.

I think this time of year makes me want to shop more because of all the sales and especially this year with all the weight I've lost. I loved my local mall last night (photo to right) with all the snowflake lights they have up already.

My goal, to buy a slip and not it possible? I hope so for the sake of my future dress wearing.

To Coexist

OK, so I have this Coexist sticker on my car. This sticker was to help me not be so angry when I drive in So. Cal traffic. However; it is so easy to forget that this sticker is even on my car.

I know to pause, relax, and even turn my radio up extremely loud while driving in traffic but sometimes I really don't understand how others got their license. I wonder if everyone in So. Cal feels the same way about everyone else.

It was recently said that So. Californians spend more and more in their cars each year. I so want to live where it doesn't take 45 min. to sometimes go 3 miles. That is just super crazy.

I will practice the rest of the week to understand that others most likely feel the same way I do and that it's all really not worth getting too worked up over.

A bit of quiet time....Thanksgiving

It's nice to have some quiet time to think...E and K are still sleeping. However; I feel that once K senses I am up all bets are off.

Thanksgiving was different this year. We all went to Ellen's and she wasn't doing well considering she just lost Leon. K and I tried to talk with her but I ended up helping E's aunt with the cooking and making a Whole Foods run for water (I ran out).

Dinner however was nice. E's sister and husband were down here and their girls. I fed baby Rachel and part of me thought "Do I really want another kid?" and the other part of me enjoyed it so much. Odd, yes I know. Sam and K played together so much and they both beat me up with pillows. Gotta love a seven and three year old. K and Sam were both grateful for their mommies and that was sweet.

I have so much to be grateful for. I've had a really good life thus far and yes, there have been some bad times but I've moved passed those times. I have a husband who adores me (with my attitude and all), I have a daughter who wants to be with me always (OK it's cute but she can be a bit of a Klingon), I have friends who I adore and who adore me (I really believe we all need a few good friends), I am healthy, I have a roof over my head, etc.

I need to remember that yes there are rough times but we can always get through them. I have a great support system yes. However; I can get my with the help of my HP whenever I need to. I can pray and yes over time things do get better.

My goal is to continue to try and grow this upcoming year. I know 100% that I will not be working past April 2008. I want to be there for my family and for me more. If I have to be on a strict budget so be it. You never know what can happen from moment to moment and I want to cherish all the ones I can.

OK, enough sappy from me today. I'm off to buy fruit for the magic bullets I bought yesterday after standing in a 2.5 hour line at Kohl's because yes, I'm crazy (:

Exercise sucks but....

Ok, so I will edit this daily to update the days I do exercise. I've just called LA Fitness and they're open until 2PM so I will be going in today. That is my first entry...I will eat breakfast with E and K and then I'm off to the gym. Stay tuned for future edits to this entry....

11.22.07 - Oh yeah baby...for the first time in my history I went to the gym on Thanksgiving and did 1.6 miles in 20 min. I even jogged at 5.0 for 3 minutes. 3.0 is too slow for me now. I know I'm no super jogger but it's progress baby!

11.24.07 - I will update what I accomplish later but I will be at the gym sometime today or I will go to the Zoo and do a ton of walking....Let's see how this day turns out. I skipped yesterday because I was shopping alot...Does that count as exercise lol.
11.24.07 - So the Zoo it was. I even got a stroller to make the walk even more enjoyable and pushing K I hope helped my muscles. I then went shopping for home stuff and groceries and pushing that heavy cart I believe helped as well. Until next time.

11.28.07 - My goal to get to the gym today. We'll see if I make it...I'm so tired and it's so cold.

12.08.07 - I've sucked at exercise since November 22nd using the excuse I'm so busy. However; today being cold and all I'm going to Cardio Kickboxing for the last time since the class will be over. I think I'll sign up for a dance class next time. Anywho, I will try my best to exercise daily busy or not!

Get off the computer......

Think before you have children is what I offer to all.....Now, I love my little girl oodles but I try and sneak out to get up early and spend some time online for moi and she knows I'm up....I can't get five minutes without her needing one thing or another....She's making her Christmas list and wants me to tell her what she wants....I'm so not a seven year old child.

I am grateful for her since it's Thanksgiving...I do love her but......why is it that she needs to get up when I do? Can't she sleep in for just one (1) day?????????

Happy Turkey Day....Off to watch Macy's parade, have breakfast with the family, and enjoy time with Erics family and my mother for dinner this evening.....

P.S. DD really needs to start her day over lol.....

I love fall. Too bad I'm not in No. Cal taking pictures but here's one I took in Palo Alto. I never see trees like this in So. Cal. It's nice to visit places that are actually seasonal.

My Blog

Ok so I figured I could give this a try...Why not?

I have a hard time saying how I really feel so maybe in a blog where I don't care what others think will help. I figure this could be great to write about moi, family, and whatever. I hope it works and if it doesn't....Oh well. Really I can only try.

So to begin it's Thanksgiving ev
e....Here's a short gratitude list:

  1. K...she helps to center me and calm me.
  2. E...He puts up with moi. Enough said.
  3. Leon...I'm grateful to have known him. What a wonderful man and I found out more about him today. You learn a lot about people once they pass. We should all try more to know the people in our lives fully while they're still here.
Until next time....Leon in his K and S's Great Grandpa Hat...

Rest in Peace Leon!
