Songs of Life...

they ring, from quiet steeples, to distant valleys, along the hillsides...of lovers hearts, of lovers hearts....

I love Neil Diamond.

His music is so soothing and it makes me feel good.

...and they will keep you from ever wanting, from ever needing, forever more, forever more....

If I could seriously change anything about myself it would be to have the ability to sing.

With a beautiful, strong, voice.

...and when the moment's true, they sing so softly to me and you...

How glorious it must be to be able to hold a tune at the top of your lungs.

...and you will know me, and I'll be yours, and you'll be mine...

Big Government is BAD!

"It is the responsibility of the citizens to support their government. It is not the responsibility of the government to support its citizens." Grover Cleveland

We shouldn't be creating a monster, the more government you have, the more bureaucracy and inefficiencies you have, which increases costs and decreases effectiveness.

If you've ever tried to get anything done with the government you know what I mean. You can't fire anyone and they just keep hiring more people.

A free market is needed to keep things streamlined and on the cutting edge. The more layers we create and the more we involve government the less free thinking and innovations you will have and the worse off we're going to be.

If you don't like a free market move to China, or to the UK.

Same, same, only different.

My mind is a blank

And I can't think of anything to write about.


Maybe it's my aged brain.

Or maybe I haven't had enough coffee today.

It could even be that all is even in my world.

Not extraordinarily good or crap, just even.

That can be good I guess.

I'm going to throw up.

And I'm at work.

I want to sleep

I want to sleep. I am TIRED.

I need rest from my vacation, and I started today - TMI?

When it's "that time of the month" I'm always extra tired and I want to stay in bed and just move extra slow.


In my bed - my comfortable Sterns and Fosters bed.

With my down comforter and down pillows.

Too bad I have a client meeting today, I'd just go back home.

And wallow.

I'm going to create a new posting label - just for My Bed.

I'mmmm Baacckk....

I'm back from whooping it up in Europe.  And I'm tired.

I could have stayed in bed again today.  I'm too old to party all the time. 

Not that we partied all the time.  It was really just the last night. 

Big mistake, huge mistake.

But we live and learn then move on.

I'm done with my mid-life crisis. 

It's really too much trouble to have one.  I don't know how people do it.

So it's done, fini, no more talk about that.

Anyway - I'm back at work and I really, really need coffee.

We had a great morning today -

Took a walk

Had breakfast - with real pig bacon.

Now we're getting ready to go look at windmills....

We're in Amsterdam!

SP and I are in Amsterdam! We're hanging at the hotel having a good time chatting. Getting ready to go out and we're looking at You Tube.

Yep - we're in Amsterdam looking at You Tube in our hotel room.

You gotta love good friends. You don't have to do anything and you have a great time doing it.

Here are the words you want to enter into the You Tube search:

Armageddon Gerbil - This is hilarious!

Social Security Check - Southern woman from Alabama - this is very funny too

Nail Salon Anjelah Johnson - listen to the long version~

Peace out!

It's the weekend, it's a party...

It's Thursday!!!!  I'm wearing my jeans! 

And I need coffee...of course I always need coffee.

Today I'm leaving for Amsterdam to meet friends - a continued celebration of my 40th!

Give me a Woop! Woop!

Oh Yeah Baby!  The republicans are starting to take it back!  Virginia and NJ now have Republican Governors.

I had no sweets yesterday and only did the 10 sit ups - I did 10 more this morning - so CLEARLY I won't be doing any excercising at night.  

At least right now.

So my little goal today is rolling over from yesterday.  

No sweets, 10 sit-ups.

I need some coffee.

I'm going to Amsterdam on Friday...I've decided I'm not giving up on my mid-life crisis.

I don't have any children to impress with my wild ways, but I do have my self respect.

And self love.

And how can I look myself in the mirror if I don't do something crazy? 


And it should rate something...unless of course mid-life for me is 50. 

ohhhh - maybe I should drag my mid-life crisis out for the next 10 years.  Do something really crazy every year or six months. 

Then when I'm old I can be like those women they put on the History Channel chronicling their crazy insane lives. 

They can say things like "in her day women didn't normally [insert crazy act here] but Judith was a rebel".  "She was doing [insert another crazy thing here] when women her age were doing [insert normal thing here]".

It's something to think about.

I wonder if my husband could stand 10 years of crazy?

I wonder what crazy things I should do?

Obama and Healthcare

I am against this universal healthcare crap he's trying to push thru.  But I need to gather my thoughts and research before I write more. 

I met my goal yesterday for sweets - but I didn't do my 5 sit-ups until today - so I did 10 this morning. 

Can that count for yesterday if I do 5 more tonight? 

I'm going for the same Goal today.  Maybe I'll try a weekly goal starting next week - after my vacation!  Right now daily is all I can handle.

My husband told me I'm going bald.  Now I'm freaking out and need to see how to keep my hair in my head. 

I don't want hair plugs.  They look weird.

But if I have to I will.

Or maybe I'll just shave it all off and go around bald. 

Or wear head scarves and hats.

Comb overs are not attractive.  But I guess no hair isn't that attractive either.  But no hair would be more dignified than the comb over.

Just call me Kojak.

Goal update...

I have good news and bad news...

The good news is - I didn't eat any sweets yesterday.

The bad...I didn't excercise for 15 minutes.

So today we're going with no sweets and 5 sit ups. 

Maybe I can acheive that.

Freak Out!

This morning I about had a melt down.

I couldn't find my passport. 

I leave in 4 days to meet SP to have a girl's weekend, and I couldn't find my passport. 

And I didn't remember putting it up after my last trip - which was only 2 weeks ago.

So I called the housekeeper, I called the cab service, and then I went online to the US Embassy in Dubai.

I should be able to get a replacement in a day, right?


It takes 7 because they are processed back in the States.

Talk about a freak out session.  Now I have to cancel everything.  The hotels, the flight, and worst of all - I can't see my BFF, SP. 

Who took off a week of work, and was leaving her chillins at home with their father.  So we could have a mid-life crisis, girly weekend, drinking whiskey and smoking cigars together.

To celebrate my birthday - my big 4.0.

And I 'm really freaking out.  Just about ready to burst into tears when...

The phone rings.

It's the housekeeper.

She found my passport - she put it up in a "little drawer" and forgot about it.

Thank God.

I can't wait for my vacation to start.
