National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)

begins at 12:01am November 01, 2005.

I won’t be staying up until midnight to begin writing. I will be writing during lunch each day & in the evenings after work. I had originally thought I’d stay up tonight to write.. but… I’m not.

Bon Jovi tickets

My sisters & I got tickets for the Bon Jovi show coming to Oklahoma City in January. We’ve been fans since the first album and have seen them in concert each tour that comes thru Oklahoma City… or Dallas.. or Little Rock, AR… or Shreveport, LA. (anywhere that’s within driving distance)

Anyway.. we were all excited that we got to buy our tickets in the pre-sale (since I’m a member of bonjovi.com.. lol) and were able to get them 24 hours before they went on sale to the general public.

My sis was looking online today at the prices of the tickets for the Dallas, TX show and the front section floor seats are selling at $685.00! Can you imagine?? I thought we were paying a fortune at $87.00 a ticket! Sheesh!!

$685.00. They are PROUD of those tickets to be selling them for that price.

There’s a radio contest going on here that is giving away the chance to be on the side of the stage during the concert. I think I’d pass out if I were to win that.

Colder than hell

I think that is one of the dumbest things to say. How cold does it have to be to be colder than hell? I mean… really.

My image of hell, probably from growing up in the Bible Belt, is fire & brimstone, lakes of fire.. and THAT, my dear friends, is pretty darn hot!

So, in my mind, COLDER than all of that heat doesn’t really have to be very cold.

I wonder.. do people actually listen to what they’re saying? or do they just spout off the first thing that comes to mind without thinking of how utterly stupid it sounds.

Can you tell that this is a pet peeve of mine?

You know what would be funny? To go around in 110 degree weather saying, “It’s COLDER than Hell today!” I bet the looks on people’s faces would be hilarious! I may have to do that next summer when it’s scorching outside & people are complaining about the heat & humidity. LOL


The girls are spending the night at our neighbor’s house.. birthday slumber party.. my son is going to a church event with a neighbor from 6-9. Am I going to do laundry & get this place cleaned up???

NO WAY!!!!

I’m going to Mom & Dad’s house to hang out & visit!

Gotta have priorities! 🙂


I don’t really remember having nighmares in the past couple of decades. I remember dreaming that I was searching for a bathroom when I was about seven years old. I kept having to run up wooden winding staircases. When I got to the top, there’d be a door. When I went thru it, another winding staircase. Finally, after what seemed like hours, I got to the top of all of the staircases. Inside the top room was a bathroom. When I went to the bathroom in the dream, I woke up in a wet bed.

Not a good dream, huh? Certainly not a nightmare, but not a good dream, either.

When I was in high school, I saw one of the Friday the 13th movies, I don’t remember which one. It’s the only Friday the 13th movie I’ve ever seen. I don’t remember having nighmares, but I did sleep on the floor in my parents’ bedroom one night because I was scared of going to sleep.

I’ve not seen many scary movies, actually. That experience is probably why. Plus, since I’m divorced, I’d not want to be a scaredy-cat when I’m supposed to be a brave adult here with my children.


I started taking the formulated thyroid medicine this morning. It is a combination of T3 and T4 based on the blood test that I had last month. The test measured free T3, free T4, thyroid peroxidase antibodies, and total thyroid. I think that is everything. It turns out that I have a really high number of thyroid antibodies fighting against the thyroid, causing an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Symptoms of this are fatigue, depression, sensitivity to cold, weight gain, increased menstrual flow, muscle cramps, constipation, dry or brittle hair. I have some of these symptoms, but thankfully not all.

freak accident

This lady who is a relative of someone Mom works with had an accident yesterday afternoon & I’m just floored by it.

Here’s what happened:

This 33 year old lady was going out with her children yesterday afternoon. She put her four children in the car, ages 11, 8, 5 and 3. When she shut the door of the car & turned it on, the mom noticed a bee in the car. When swatting at the bee, frantically trying to get it out of the car, the mom somehow fell out & got ran over by the car. She died this morning.

The bee story is how the 5 year old explained the accident to family members and police.

I cannot imagine what those children must be feeling or how the family is coping/dealing with this loss.
