Moving on .

I've been blogging for a few years now. Sometimes sporadically sometimes daily, but almost regularly. I have finally separated from XSU and starting to live a new life on my own. The original blog helped me get through the painful process of the end of the marriage, along with some bumpy roads dealing with a critically ill child in the midst of the end of marriage mess. Now this blog will see me through the new paths and adventures that life has to offer. Restructuring my life. My way. My experiences, ventings, musings on that whole big and not so big deal.

Sunday Snippets

I have watched this cheesy version of a Christmas Carol called "Ebbie" with Susan Lucci three times yep 3 TIMES in the past few weeks, the latest being this morning.  Makes me tear up every time.  I mean cheesy, cheesy.  Yet the tears flow. 

 The WII Console is sold out all over town.  Luckily, Rebel isn't around at Christmas and so it won't be too bad if I don't get it til afterwards.   I bought Rebel a sweater and a couple of Disney movies ( she loves her Disney- Sleeping Beauty and Snow White are in the platinum edition!) to have as presents while away with her dad. 

Damn you Apple.  No such thing as a 16 ipod Touch any more.  There's an 8 and a 32 - Price difference is from $200 to $300.  I know an 8 isn't enough.  WHEN did that happen?  I STILL think the kid is lucky to be getting this regardless. 32 it will be.  Luckily I have 5 cell phones to give Best Buy.  They recycle them and give you reward points.  I am counting on a few serious points to bring the cost of this one down.  Will see.  XSU forked over a whole whack of money to pay for all this thank goodness.
 It's nearly 3 PM and I am still in PJs moving rather lethargically.   Might be because I didn't get home last night til nearly 2 AM.  I had a lovely time at a friend's annual martini Christmas party.  Had a choco-tini, a Bellini, a traditional (gin not vodka) and some kind of raspberry blue thing.  Don't worry - I paced myself.  One drink an hour plus food and water between drinks.  We danced in the kitchen.  It was a good time. 

RJ told me her dad was going to a party and wouldn't it have been funny if we were going to the same party.  Now there's a thought.  OF course this would be highly unlikely, but for a half a nano second ...

gah! not funny

I have been very happy to have seen the ex so very few (next to none) times since the divorce.

I just don't want to. It isn't about anything else. She left, stay gone.

Good luck with the points, I should see if my best buy does that too. Everything is different in AK cuz of the extra cost of shipping to America.

btw, still not dressed either, watching the Bolts game

My idiot X is always way more uncomfortable when we end up at the same place than I will ever be. I like it that way. Keeps him on his toes.

Nothing wrong at all with a PJ's day. I think it builds character. :-)

I hope that BB gives you lots of reward points for your recycling. I wonder if ours does this. We now have a bunch of old cells running around this house. {and some in a box in the garage. heh!}

I never knew that Susan Lucci was in a cheesy version of A Christmas Carol. I am gonna have to hunt that down.

Happy Sunday, Girlfriend.
love and hugs,
