I guess the joke is on me -- again. I always assume a person will give me the same consideration as I would them.


Even a hint or a glimmer of thoughtfullness would be better than nothing.

Saying/doing nothing says a lot.

I'm tired.

My body is tired. My mind is tired. My heart is tired.

This just isn't working. I'm only one person. I can only do so much. I can only take so much. I want to do it all but just can't do it all.

Something has got to change.

Anybody out there on myspace? Add me (us) if you'd like...




So last night I played Bunco with some of the women in my neighborhood. I had so much fun... more than just fun.... it was great!!! I drank waaaaay too much and ate too much. And I won $20! I SO needed a night out!!!!!!! I feel awful today though, but it was worth it. I was able to forget about all the crap at home for a little while. They get together once a month to play, so I'm going to do my best to make it to more parties. Next month is going to be a Mexican night I believe...

(If any local girls out there are interested, you're more than welcome to come!!!)

I love a mystery

Well my friends, it seems there is a spy among us. Perhaps even two. I can't be 100% certain, but I have a pretty good idea who it could be.

Visitor#1, if you are who I think you are, I'm truly amazed you remembered melliemelo to search MSN for me. You didn't remember much in the office. (I'm not surprised you had to search, instead of just simply typing www.melliemelo.com !!!) I don't care that you're here, but I'd really love to know why. For 11 years, you had very little to say to me. Why would you be interested in my life now?

Visitor#2, I've not much to say. I'm not sure you've been here. I think so though. Myspace Copycat...

Who knows, I could be wrong in both cases. Something tells me I'm not.

Hello. :-)

Monday, January 02, 2006

Our New Year's was pretty nice. My parents stayed over to watch Valerie so we were able to have a night out. I would have loved to go "out", but we both dread the smoke, crowds, and loudness of bars. We went to the movies instead. Please go see "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe!!" Very Magical. After the movie, we went by a friend's house. They were having a small NYE party, but we were so tired that we left about 11:15!! And were back home just before midnight. We're such old fogies!

My dad was up and said Val had just gone to bed about 11:00!! Normally she's sleeping by 7:00. Wow. I'm guessing she was excited that MawMaw MeMe and Poppi were here. Either that or the fireworks kept her up. Even after we got home, she was up every hour or so... whining and crying. We were so tired yesterday!!!

New Year's Day we went to my mom's for dinner. Some other friends came by last night to watch fireworks, but it started raining. Today we're just hanging out at home and will work on picking up the rest o thef Christmas stuff.

2006 resolutions ~ lose the baby belly!! I'm already going to the gym 4-5 days a week, but it's not doing anything. We're going to try doing low carb for a while and see if it helps. Clint wants to lose 10 lbs. too. I'm happy with the scale number, but I just want to have a smaller stomach!! My other goal is to keep the house cleaner and be more organized.
