My first

So I totally stole this from Rene, but it looked fun!

1. Who was your FIRST prom date?
Bj Wilson...I was wearing a white lace dress and we ate at Mario's Italian restaurant, where the waiter brought Me like six napkins so I wouldn't mess up my dress.

2. Do you still talk to your FIRST love?
Yes, actually, I do.

3. What was your FIRST alcoholic drink?
One of my dad's friends gave me a sip of beer, and I promptly spit it back out all over his shoes, I was younger than 8 at the time.

4. What was your FIRST job?
Besides farm work, my first job was at Taco Hell. I HATE that place!!

5. What was your FIRST car?
Oooooh, It was a big 'ole gold Buick I think...Thank God it melted in the house fire. It was the ugliest car I'd ever seen!

6. Who was the FIRST person to text you today?
Nope, I don't do that! I hate texting!

7. Who is the FIRST person you thought of this morning?
Actually it was a lady that lived down the street from me, who last year apparently burnt her own house down, killing two of her kids, and seriously injuring her husband. It was on the radio when my alarm clock turned on. Horrible way to wake up!

8. Who was your FIRST grade teacher?
I was home schooled until 2nd grade, so my mom and dad!

9. Where did you go on your FIRST ride on an airplane?
Chicago, to meet my dad after he had his first heart attack. I can't remember how old I was, but it was young. My first ride as an adult was to Minnesota, in January!! For the Red Cross convention. (it was really fun, but it got to 30 below there!!!!)

10. Who was your FIRST best friend and are you still friends with them?
My first best friend was Shanae Young, and I haven't talked to her since I moved from Indianapolis, but I have tried to find her...

11. What was your FIRST sport played?
Soft ball, and soccer

12. Where was your FIRST sleep over?
I can't remember the girls name, but I called my dad at 3 am to come get me...first time I stayed all night was with Sheila dunnam I think, many years later lol

13. Who was the FIRST person you talked to today?
The girls, when I woke them up at 6 am.

14. Whose wedding were you in the FIRST time?
I don't think I've ever been IN a wedding, I'd have to ask my mom. It's really not my thing. I was the photographer at my friends Kim's wedding though.

15. What was the FIRST thing you did this morning?
I put my pants on, one leg at a time, just like everyone else. :)

16. What was the FIRST concert you ever went to?
I went to a concert at Barn lot theater, to see Black Stone Cherry, and Trip (two home town bands. BSC actually has a cd at the PX, Pretty cool!)

17. FIRST tattoo or piercing?
My ears at 14, then again a couple of years later, then my cartilage, then I got three tattoos later on.

18. FIRST foreign country you went to?
I am sad to say I have never left the USA. Hopefully soon though.

19. What was your FIRST run in with the law?
I got pulled over on the way to a pep band performance, with to license, and I didn't have my insurance card. That sucked!!

20. When was your FIRST detention?
I got in trouble sophomore year (I think) because some Bi#$%H got nasty when I looked in her direction. She knocked the pen out of my mouth, breaking my front tooth, then I beat the crap out of her. I ended up missing the detention though, because I decided to go to the vice principle first, trailing my hair behind me. She tore out so much of my hair I had a bald spot for months, but I got her back....

21. What was the FIRST state you lived in?

22. Who was the FIRST person to break your heart?
Um..Really break my heart? I guess that was BJ. He was a big meanie, I think he got me a couple of times before I got smart.

My first roomie was Sheila. During the big ice storm in KY my family moved in with hers for a while.

24. Where did you go on your FIRST limo ride?
I don't really remember, isn't that sad?

So I forgot...

Last week I was so busy I forgot to post on Tuesday! I just wanted to do a quick report, since tomorrow I will be doing it again...
I lost .4 last week, and I was SHOCKED b/c of the wonderful election day party I threw, and then the Volunteer Appreciation dinner last weekend!
In other news..Homecoming ceremonies abound, some friends are home, and I'm still counting down till Jay gets home. We are all getting really antsy here, so much so that I rearranged the entire front room last night after the kids went to bed. It was pretty funny to come downstairs with the girls and watch them look around (thinking something is wrong here....)
I basically moved the antique couch around so that my big dining room table has room to stretch, because we think (please please please) that Jay might be home in time for Thanksgiving dinner!!!
I still have some things to sort through before I'm done, but I got seriously motivated last night and things are such a mess that I have no choice but to stay motivated!
I am off to drop off rental movies and go have lunch with Renee, so I'll let you know how weight watchers goes tomorrow!

Just curious...

So, what do you think about our new president? Do ya like him? Are you worried? What do you like most about him? What scares you?
I'd really like to know what the rest of the world thinks too. Do you think that Obama will be good for America's relations with the rest of the planet?

Just when you think...'re going to be ok, you end up bursting into tears over nothing. Although "nothing" is usually "everything". I feel the weight of the world on my sholders, and my knees are buckling. Yesterday while talking about going to Fort Gordon, I just started to feel angry. I'm angry that time has started to move slower than molasses in January in Minnesota...
I am so looking forward to leaving here. I'm going to erase every telephone number, and every email address that is stored in my phone, and only those people that contact me in the first 6 months are going to be kept. I'm sure that SOUNDS harsh, but if they really loved me, they'd call, right? Right, that's my point! I'm not only cleaning out my drawers, and my garage, I'm cleaning out my life too. Sweep away the cobwebs. Keep my FRIENDS and dump the hangers-on. I need to figure out what I am going to do with my life other than take care of my family though. I love them, but sitting at home waiting for my life to walk through the door just isn't enough. The only issue is finding something that will squeeze into the tiny slot of time I have free for "me".
I'm just not having a good couple of months. I'm banking on a fresh start to make it better. Everything is always better when Jay's home. Now if anyone knows how to speed up the time space continum, let me know.

Freedom to live the way you choose...

Exit Polls: Gay Marriage in California
Posted: 12:25 AM ET

In California exit polls reported thus far tonight, Proposition 8 appears to be going down to a narrow 52 percent to 48 percent defeat.The proposition would amend California's state constitution to eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry. Earlier in the year, the California Supreme Court issued a ruling making such marriages legal under the state's constitution
If the trend holds, younger, first-time voters can be said to be responsible for Proposition 8's defeat. Voters between the ages of 18 and 29 opposed the proposition 66 percent to 34 percent; voters 30-64 were evenly split; voters 65 and above favored the amendment 57 percent to 43 percent.
First-time voters cast their ballots against the proposition by a 64 percent to 36 percent margin. The rest of the electorate favored the amendment 52 percent to 48 percent.
Californians who attend church weekly voted for Proposition 8 by an 83 percent to 17 percent. Those who attended church occasionally voted 40 percent in favor and 60 percent opposed. Californians who never attend church were 14 percent in favor and 86 percent against.
College graduates opposed Proposition 8 by a 57 percent to 43 percent margin. Those without a college degree favored it, 53 percent to 47 percent.
African-Americans voted for Proposition 8 by a 69 percent to 31 percent margin. However, 55 percent of white voters and 52 percent of Hispanics voted against the proposition.

WW's Tuesday

Yes, in the excitement of the day, I did remember to go to the weight watcher's meeting, and guess what? I lost one pound!!! Yay me!

America, F@#K ya!!

(To bum K's favorite line)
A history making night. I am extremely proud to have been a part of it. Now, lets roll up our sleeves and get to work. MY new President is someone that I firmly believe will change our country for the better, and I'm all for helping out. I can't wait for tomorrow morning!!!
