Daddy's Girl

I've always felt safe while you were holding my hand; now let me be there to hold yours...

I've cancelled my flight to Orlando. Some things have come up.

PreBurning Calories

I finally gave in and enrolled at World Fitness across the street from work. Kevin and I were members at Charleston Health and Fitness, but it was off of Rivers Avenue. Once we moved out to Moncks Corner, it was out of our way to work out, and I spent months paying for a gym we never used anymore. Remember his BowFlex he promised we'd work out together with? Okay...not happening. I decided that he can keep convincing himself he'll get up early in the mornings to stare at a cluttered garage to work out. Meanwhile, I will be here stuck in another 2 year membership, working out in a work-out type environment.

So far, I've been doing really well. I've spent about 3 hours every open day sweating my arse off. I'm trying to lose these couple of holiday pounds I put on, plus prepare myself for this Orlando trip I'll be leaving for on Thursday. I just know Erick is gonna be cooking up a storm of his gourmet type dishes, and I gotta be prepared. Beefcake!!

Christmas 2004

Christmas Morning

My brothers and sisters were all able to make it home for Christmas this year! I was very happy to be able to be with everyone once again. I think that my parents were especially happy with this.

Our normal Christmas tradition was a little different this year. Our usual Christmas parties, midnight mass, and midnight snacking were not on my to-do list this time. All I was concerned about was that everyone would be able to make it home safely and relax together. That wish was indeed granted, and I am very grateful for that. I would like to think that with Christmas gone now, I can sigh a sigh of relief. However, I know that there is still much to be done...

It's Nice To Be Needed

we have to pee.


I want you to know that you make me so very happy every day since I met you. I am happy and proud to be your husband.
I Love You!

P.S. Silence has to go out

After a long and dragging day of work, this card was on the kitchen counter greeting my arrival. It's so funny how different things make you happy as you get older. It's good to be home.

Another Doggone Christmas

"Another year with no presents for me under the tree..."

Crossing My Fingers

I can't believe that Christmas is almost here again. I have actually finished all of my shopping...well, almost. I have one more thing to pick up.

The past few days are the first ones this year that have really felt like winter. Our mornings we have been waking up with temperature in the 20's. I hear that if our current conditions continue, we might be expecting some snow on Sunday and Monday. Woo-Hoo!! I hope so.

Looking Up

Dad: "You know, I think after all of this, I am going to stick to fish and veggies. No more fried foods; I'm going to start taking better care of myself..."

Today is a good day.

Star Through the Telescope

Can you see the luminous gases coming off of the green glow? Stars are so cool!

I made two wishes on the first two shooting stars I saw tonight. One was a wish for me, and the other a heartfelt prayer meant for my loved-ones and family...

Castor and Pollux, the Gemini twins, have been shooting their arrows from the heavens this past week! Between 10 pm Monday night, thru 2 am Tuesday morning will be the best time to watch them!! I read that as many as 75 meteors per hour can be seen. Just be sure to look at the darkest area of the sky, to be able to see them better. Time to break out the telescope!

Did you notice I finally got a picture up on my profile? Woo-Hoo!!

Geminids Meteors!

Pressure Is Rising

Her: "I don't know why Cher's been having such an attitude lately. You know, I can be a bitch if I want to..."

So, what is your normal personality called??? Whatever.

It seems that my posts have been becoming less frequent. Probably because day after day, my days have all been the same. My long awaited weekend is finally here, and I've just a bit more Christmas shopping to finish up. I just haven't been much in the celebrating mood lately.

Kevin and I went out to shop last Sunday, and I had my heart set out for a new crucifix and an MP3 player. Only thing is, when I did find what I wanted, I wasn't "allowed" to buy them ("Christmas is on the way!"). That sucks. Shopping usually makes me feel better, temporarily, and I came home empty handed. Now, I have no new jewelry to wear, and no music to listen to while I work out. Can't say that this shopping trip lifted my spirits at all. Not one bit.

Domo Arrigato, Mr. Roboto!

Kevin and I went out to Kobe's, a Japanese restaurant last night. I don't often drink, and didn't plan on drinking, but they had Ichiban beer. That's the only beer I really truly enjoy drinking. After a couple of beers, along with my tolerance, I was feeling pretty good.

Well, after feeling good, I was getting in the mood to drink and whatda ya know? Here comes the carafes of sake! Another couple sharing our table apparently decided they were in the mood to drink as well, and began passing their carafes down to us too. We had the cook, wait staff, and even the owner drinking with us, and bringing us more as compliments to our patronage.

I don't think we really needed to, but we all decided to continue on downtown to Wet Willy's. Two more rounds of drinks, and I was done. I was an absolute stumbling, bumbling fool. I can't even remember coming home last night, and woke in my bed fully clothed in my going-out attire. It took me a second or two to remember last night, but the nausea quickly reminded me. Kevin says he had a blast, but I don't want to touch a drop of alcohol for at least another month. Although my intention to take a little break from my last highly stressful weeks was indeed slightly overdone, we did have a kick ass time and created more laughable memories that won't be forgotten.

Shall I or Shan't I?

Almost every Thursday night, Kevin and I go out for Wing Night. Since Thanksgiving, I've eaten nothing but junk! He's just left the office, and I am still here, surfing the net-I told him to go ahead, and I would just go home and eat something healthier.

As I watch him drive away, visions of chicken wings drowned in ranch sauce are suddenly taunting me. Should I just get in the car and go home, or shall I chase him down and give in to temptation??, hell, tomorrow is another day to to lose my Turkey Day weight....

Gotta go!!........
