2.This post tugs at my heart every time...

I sit here sad because I miss my Pap-paw. If you know me you know that I loved my Pap-paw more than anything. I have written about him before and I still cant express my feelings about him. He got cancer the treatment didn't work and he died.... He was just gone from our lives just like that.

I went through the motions of dealing with death I went through the sadness and I tried to be strong for everyone. But I thought as time went on things would get easier but it hasn't, I just have this empty loss in my heart. Yes the holidays are a hard time but honestly I miss him more everyday. My Granny is my hero she lost her husband and best friend but still has the courage to go on. My Mom lost her dad and she still goes on, my brothers lost their Pap-paw too and they still go on. I still got on but with the emptiness in my heart.

I try to make light of it but I am angry at God for taking my Pap-Paw all I can say is "why' but I know that God has his plan but was it Gods plan to hurt my family?

I write all this to confess that I am scared to death of death.Its a fear that stops me in my tracks and consumes me. I also confess that I am really struggling with my faith in God. I know that if my Pap-paw was here he would give me a big hug and answer my questions and he would also tell me I should never doubt my faith.

I sit here typing with a heavy heart in tears hoping that by typing this out would help but it doesn't. I am still sad, still so sad for my Granny, still angry with God and still wishing my Pap-Paw was here. I know everyone has had to deal with death but I am strong enough to confess that I fear it

My Favorite Pap-Paw picture...

3. And so begins my love of the Pioneer Woman...


How about this, 2 post in 2 days!! I love nothing more than staying up late and having nothing to do the next day.

Tonight my brother, my dad and myself went to dinner at J.Alexanders downtown and it was yummy but I was full before we ever got our meal! Ryan loves the queso dip and I LOVE LOVE LOVE there side salads(I love them so much that I even had the box it up so I could bring it home) I also got salmon and rice. Tomorrow is Ryans birthday so I am sure we will be going out to dinner again!

I hate to bring this up because I am kinda tired of hearing about it but the Michael Jackson stuff is kind of getting old. I feel like his family is loving the attention and the kids mom is as well loving the attention. I feel bad for Michael Jackson because it seemed that everyone in his life were just using him. You never know what to believe in all the media coverage but everyone can see that Michael Jackson was a very troubled man. I bet the good ole'Governor of South Carolina is glad that some of the attention is takin off him. What a loser that guy is I mean lets give him some credit he loves his so called mistress soul mate but he is trying really hard to fall back in love with his wife, what a bozo!!!

The other night I made these cinnamon rolls and I am going to toot my own horn they are FABULOUS! Very rarely do I make something that I actually like but these things are so good! I had never worked with yeast before but I powered thru and they were worth it. You can check the recipe out here on The Pioneer Woman Blog If I knew how many it was going to make I would have halved the recipe but they were yummy and they are definitely worth and I will be making these again!! Yes they do take 9 cups of flour!!

Well kids I am signing off for then night! I have to finish making my magnets(I will post pictures when they are all done)! I am loving that I have a 3 day weekend!!!

Oh yeah I think I am going to take up tennis! Dont laugh I am serious! Steph do you have a racket????

You can also see more Pioneer Woman here and here too!

What Have I Learned!

Things that I have learned this week and its only Tuesday!

  • Mike Heimerdinger is actually a coach for the Titans rather than a player( I mean honestly lets face it I usually only pay attention to the score)
  • The copier at work can not change a document from 2 pages to 1- I spent 30 minutes on this task
  • A person can really have to much crafting supplies- that person being me
  • A Christmas tree can cause you to have a breakdown- again referring to myself
  • That coupons really are worth time and effort
  • A person really can change who they are which leaves me wondering if I ever really knew who they were?
  • That a sales person will do ANYTHING to get the boss on the phone
  • That I am just not going to be able to make my Christmas cards this year... that makes me sad but I dont have the time!
  • That my little brother is probably the smartest person I have ever met besides my Pap-Paw of course
  • That my car probably has NEVER been this dirty inside or out!
  • That I am not the only one who maps out my day for Black Friday!
  • That you can put to much Chocolate in Puppy Chow- making it stale...Yuck!
  • That I really do have a small obsession with Salsaritas salsa
  • I am not really upset about Jon and Kate going off the air- I thought I would cry but I didnt
  • That I have a little crush on Neil Orne on the Channel 2 news

Thanks for visiting. I'm going to have to come back and read here some more. I love your very long post : ) I write long posts quite often which I know is annoying to some but I cannot seem to make them any shorter.

I read your 100 things because I love those...#28. Yikes!

I live in the suburbs of NYC...we moved here last summer from the 'suburbs' of London. London is my favorite city in the world but NY is high on my list too.

I was a teacher, love to travel, love Sophie Kinsella and I have a daughter who doesn't balance her checkbook either which makes me crazy....she has a blog if you want to visit ( She just graduated from college.

Have a great weekend!
