My Weekend....

My Weekend started on Thursday. Since I work shift work I have every other weekend off. Friday thru Monday morning. So I met up with some girls I met on Meet Up.  If you have never heard of Meet Up it is groups of people with shared interests and you get together and plan events and events. I am always searching for new friends and hopefully maybe gain some close ones.. 

Anyway I met up with a few ladies that I have been hanging out with at Guappos Mexican restaurant after I got off on Thursday. These are a great groups of ladies and I love hanging out with them. We have some INTERESTING conversations.. About 15 ladies showed up and we talked, had some cocktails and some apps. It was a blast.. But the REAL fun occurred after a few of the ladies left and there was about 6 of us left. My oh My the conversations we had.... What happens at the meet up STAYS AT THE MEET UP.. LOL 

Here is a pic of all of us... 
Then on Friday Steve and I met up with my dad for dinner at Glory Days. We got ther…

Bad Day.....

I have a stressful job... I am a 911 Dispatcher. I take 911 calls, non-emergency calls, animal control calls, EMS calls, the list goes on and on. You name it I have probably heard it. And even somethings you never would think people would call for. I have been a dispatcher for almost 12 years. Until yesterday I have never wanted to quit on the spot. Not because I don't like it but I had a really rough call yesterday.  

I was taking Emergency calls and received a phone call from a male who stated he had just bought a gun and wanted to kill himself. I asked him where he was and he told me. I gathered his name and phone number and then he tells me he is going to put the phone down and then shoot himself.   I attempted to keep him on the phone and then I hear a gunshot. Then silence... Meanwhile I am looking for my supervisor to assist me and I hear him in the background cussing. He then gets back in the phone telling me the gun jammed and he is not injured.. Thank God.  I know nothing…

Weigh in Wednesday!

Hello to all my new followers!!!! I hope I do not bore you all! I am trying to post everyday and I am fairly new at this so.. please bear with me!!! 

Its that time again!!!! I once again had a rough week and did poorly. I did however weigh my self today and I have lost 1 lb of the 3 I gained over the weekend... So there is that. 
My husband has decided he is going to do Insanity.  He started it on Monday and was too sore yesterday to do it.. LOL I told him you can't just do Insanity from being as couch potato and not have it hurt. But good for him for starting it.. I am going to attempt to do it with him... I will do what I can and see what happens.... 

I am working on putting 100% into becoming a better me... I am still having some issues with willpower but I am willing to do it for myself.  Last night I worked on making a goal chart like this one. So for I have only done the weight countdown... I think I might make it a poster? Not too sure yet... I totally need something to motiva…

Dating Disasters....

Today I am linking up with Allie and Brin for our dating diasters... This is one I wish I could forget..... It occured in 1997... (yes I am old...)

Back in the late 90's when AOL was uber popular there was a feature called a Member Profile. It was just info about you. They still have it but since AOL was the only thing going on at the time (way before Facebook, Myspace, Twitter..etc) that was how we comunicated. Anyway I was always bored and in the chat rooms and met some INTERESTING people. Well I had a guy who lived near by me who asked to meet up and go to the movies. I had just broken up with my first "real" boyfriend and I was looking to get back out there. So I met him at the mall to see "Face Off" the Nick Cage and John Travolta movie. He seemed nice and funny and we had a good time during the movie. So afterwards we were sitting in my car talking and he decided that he wanted to upzip his pants and show me his penis.. I was like WTF weirdo. Seriously wh…
