total update!
things have been a bit crazy in my life the last few days. i'll start with friday night when i went down to texas station ( a local casino) to listen to some live music. i went by myself because it is a local place with plenty of security. the band sucked; most of it's members were old enough to be my father, and the music truly was not that great. when i went to leave, i met a very nice man, we spoke for a couple of minutes and then i left. saturday night tracy and i went to the orleans (another semi-local casino) where i saw the same security guard that had caught my eye a couple of weeks prior. i sucked up my pride, went over to introduce myself, and low and behold he called me on sunday afternoon. we should be getting together one evening this week for drinks. sunday night was man free for me as i went to my friend susan's for dinner, got to visit with her, husband joe and the two dogs (willie and caesar). this morning i received an e-mail from a man that i have been corresponding with on e-Harmony...his e-mails have been few and far apart but as he explained in todays e-mail he has been house hunting. anyway, he wants to meet for lunch this weekend. needless to say i am quite excited!

so what has changed since i turned 51 that men are starting to notice me? tracy and i talked about this saturday night. could it be that i am finally comfortable enough with myself that i have more confidence and really put myself "out there"? is it that i am just starting to really enjoy life and what it has to offer? i still don't really know what it is but i sure am glad to be in this position!!!!!!!!!!!

just need to brag
i ran to target last night just to pick up a couple of things i needed and happened to find the cutest pair of jeans. of course i just had to try them on and was very surprised when they were too big. ok, so here is the brag...i ended up buying a size 10!

getting what they deserve
these people are getting what they deserve, at least in my mind. i hope that they are put away for a very, very long time. I just feel so bad for their other kids, but hopefully they are safe now.

36 more days
to celebrate and get our thoughts together, tim (christy's half brother and my cabin mate for the cruise) came over for dinner last night. tim is 48, tall and funnier than all hell, he has the BEST personality of any man that i have met in years. it was so nice to have someone to talk with while grilling not to mention someone to look at while eating (normally i watch the news). neither of us can wait to leave, this will be tim's first cruise and my fourth, i am just excited about getting away for a few days. we have already decided that we will spend our days by the pool and huge water slide and our evenings between the piano bar and the karaoke lounge.

Tim has been fighting non-hodgkins lymphoma for half of his life. he went through three sessions of chemo earlier this year because the tumors had returned. the 3rd session made him really sick(this had never happened before) but the tumors disappeared. now they are back again, he will go to the hospital tomorrow for a four hour course of heavy duty anti-biotics to help him attack the tumors and then see his doctor next week to talk about another possible course of treatment. tim is such a great guy and never throws a pity party, he just keeps going. i want to spend as much time as possible with him and really want this cruise to be something special for him.

42 more days!
last year when i turned 50 i went to jamaica with kath and jason for a week and it was fabulous. this year i am taking a belated b-day cruise. nothing too special, just a four day baja on carvival, leaving long beach on a friday and sailing to ensenada and returning on monday. the best part is that i will be relaxing and having fun because thats just what girls want (and need) to do.

if it was possible...
if it was possible for you to be reincarnated, who or what would you want to come back as and why?

after giving this a lot of thought i have decided that i would want to come back as oprah winfrey because she has had the chance to help so many under priviledged people and meet so many influential people. i would love to in the position some day to help other people financially. i guess that you could say that this is my big dream.
