R.I.P. BooBoo Kitty

My Faithful, 18 year old cat died at the Vet's office last night. He had Pneumonia.
On Sunday afternoon, BooBoo was running around wanting to be feed (which was normal for him to beg for food ALL THE TIME) even after he ate, he would still beg for more! He was chasing the dogs.......and being his crazy catself. Sunday night was a different story........his breathing was very labored. Monday morning, I took him to his Vet. Monday night he died. I know he's 18, but it all happened way too quickly!
BooBoo Kitty was with me for 16.5 years. He's been my very first pet to die. Please pray for me.

Working-out ROCKS.

I have never enjoyed working out. In the past, I hated it. I have felt awkward always being the biggest girl in the gym. It's amazing how after 12 years of working-out on and off has changed my way of thinking.
I called my Karla Friend today to confess something. I really enjoy working out. Do I like getting up at 4:45am to get to the gym by 5am? My answer is absolutely NO! Honestly, I think working out in the morning before I start my day helps me tremendously. At the end of the day, my energy is zapped......all I can think about is how I can not wait to get home. I enjoy knowing I am doing something great for my body. I enjoy the quality time I have with Karla, even if we are sweating. I enjoy having lots of energy at the end of the day on the days I work out. I'm amazed at the difference in my body since I started working out.
Last week, I could not work out because I was sick. I missed it. I am shocked I even said that. I felt the difference of not working out for a week today after I finished working out and sat in my car. My legs were hurting. I loved it!

Do you work out? If so, do you love or hate it?

Make-up for Girls or Boys?

Last week, I was sick.....really sick. I woke up on Monday morning with my severe congestion & headache, runny nose, just pure nastiness. Since my eyes have been puffy, red, & itchy, I have not been able to wear make-up all week. I went to the Silly Family's house one day this weekend. I said something about not wearing make-up. Kenny, aka Silly Dad, has said numerous times women wear make-up for other women, NOT men. I keep thinking about Kenny's statement. I will agree and disagree with Kenny.

I agree with Kenny because I love watching how everyone I know has completely different make-up talents. I say talents because I believe it takes talent to "put on a face." I love to people watch especially how much/little make-up women wear. I never really thought about this until Kenny said women wear make-up for other women. I was about 14 years old when I really started wearing make-up. My Mom showed me how to put it on. Mom wears little make-up. So, I in-turn wear little make-up. When I was in college, I always put on a full face: foundation, powder, eye shadow, eye-liner, mascara, blush and lipstick. In college, I put on make-up because all my friends put it on.......this is why I agree with Kenny. We played "beauty shop" quite often. It was great.

I also disagree with Kenny. Since I am Single, I wear make-up to get noticed by men. I wear make-up to enhance my natural beauty. :) It amazes me the color of your lips can really turn on a man. With each man I have dated, they have always loved a different shade of lipstick on me. This is why I disagree with Kenny. Make-up does turn on men. So, I wear make-up for men too. It will be just my luck I will find a man wearing NO make-up & looking my worst.

What do you think? Do you wear make-up for Girls or Boys?

P.S. I need a "make-up" overhaul........Is anyone up for the challenge????

P.S. Thanks Heather for the pictures! :)

There's a First time for everything.....

I hate when "skinny/thin" people say, I forgot to eat breakfast/lunch/supper. Normally, "MY" Skinny Girl inside just wants to deck them right in the kisser when I hear they forgot to eat, but the Phat/Overweight Girl that I actually am holds the Skinny Girl back. How can some just forget to eat? Food is what gives us energy!

Well, I got to the office this morning with lots of orders and phone calls to place, lots of conversations among co-workers. I got to the office at 7:20am....and at 9am I thought to myself I need to eat b/c I am hungry. Then, the phone rang. Fifteen minutes ago, I started become so hungry........I thought to myself "Why am I so hungry b/c I had breakfast?!"

Tricia's Update

Tricia is in ICU after a successful surgery. Per Nate's Dad, the surgery was difficult due to the extent of Tricia's disease. The Great Part is Tricia is in ICU. Her family is patiently waiting until they see her again!

PRAISE GOD for miracle's. GOD is Good!

Friends, I just read Nate's blog. Tricia's double lung transplant is just starting. Please pray for the Surgeon's, Tricia, Nate, their families, and the donor family. We are so very blessed to live in this age with such great technology for organ transplants! Praise God!

I am going to bed, but I will update you tomorrow morning! If you can not wait for my update, please go to http://cfhusband.blogspot.com/


No Church for me.

Last Sunday, I slept until 10:30am. It was blissful. I skipped church. I hardly ever miss church. I was happy I slept in, but guilty. I did not go "see Jesus" on Sunday. Mind you, I see Jesus everyday, but I did not go to his house on Sunday to Worship & Praise Him.
In my family, it was tradition to go to MawMaw & PawPaw's for lunch every Sunday. I absolutely loved it. My entire family would come together for quality time. I really grew up with lunch being "my church". Pretty sad. When those lunches completely stopped, I thought my life was missing something. I ached for the quality time with my family.
On Sunday, I did not think I would miss church. I really did not until today. I missed the quality time with Jesus and my fellow Christians on Sunday. I missed the moment of Silence right before the Pastor prayers. I missed all the great hugs I get each Sunday. I love my old church, but it's time to find a new church. No more sleeping in for me. I'm on a mission.
One of my new year resolutions was to find a new church with a great Single's Ministry. Have I done it? Have I really looked for a new church? Nope. Will I start soon? Yes. I need to get plugged into a new church.
