Chill in the air.... that kind of mood

Well the morning came like a freight train,
bearing down on me from a thousand miles away.
Well it came and went and kept rolling on,
Then laying up all night with tear stained sheet as my veil

I don't want to see you again,
I don't want to feel your breath
As you leaned on me so peacefully, yes we said
I don't want the keys to our door,
I don't live there anymore
And I'll do my best to forget the dreams we've dreamt.

Well the morning came with the pouring rain,
and I feelas empty as a pail
With the evidence and the crime confessed,
it don't feel alive that I'll see .. in jail.

I don't want to see you again,
I don't want to feel your breath
As you leaned on me so peacefully, yes we said
I don't want the keys to our door,
I don't live there anymore
And I'll do my best to forget the dreams we've dreamt.

If you feel a chill in the air,
It's my spirit hanging somewhere
And if you ever feel scared,
Look on the bright side
You've got a new life.

When the evening came and I'm all lone
I can't figure out the silence of my ..
I keep holding on, but I ain't too strong
I've gotta get the sleep before the train come down again.

I don't want to see you again,
I don't want to feel your breath
As you leaned on me so peacefully, yes we said
I don't want the keys to our door,
I don't live there anymore
And I'll do my best to forget the dreams we've dreamt.

Saturday in the hood :)

How was your week?  I didnt do much blogging or writing this week and I can really feel it today! Seems like everything is bursting out.  So far I have worked on my Travel Facebook page, My Tumblr, my personal FB page and now I'm here ready to do some writing. I have a yummy mug of steaming hot chocolate with EXTRA marshmallow and some music playing! Speaking of music, that will be my next big project since my Itunes is completely messed up. When I got a new computer the transfer of the Itunes didnt go so well so I have to download hundreds of cds all over again!! UGHH but its worth it because I got a brand new Ipod for Christmas so I am itching to use it on the treadmill....which brings me to my second big project, ME ! I have decided to try the Wheat Belly diet so I wont be eating any wheat and I will be limiting my sugar. ( drinking my SUGARY hot chocolate as I write this hahaha).  Within the last 3 months I have had a family member have a stroke, another diagnosed with cancer and another suffering from his FIFTH heart attack. It just was a major wake up call. I have been too unhealthy for a long time now and I just think that I need to get back to being healthy and try avoid these time bombs in my history !!  

Heart disease is very prominent in my family and family grandfather suffered his first heart attack at the age of 29 and he died when my mom was only 16 from a massive heart attack. My aunt passed away at age 49 and my uncle has had open heart surgery. SOOOOOO that has lead me to this healthy living revelation today. I need to work out, i need to eat better, I need to laugh more and I need to stop worrying about the past. All of those things will lead me to a happier and healthier life.

And since we are on the subject of a happier and healthier life, I wanted to update you on teddy. Poor guy has had a bad couple of months since getting sick on Thanksgiving day. He has been through the emergency vet, injections, antibiotics, steriods, pain meds, then he got ear mites but we didnt know what it was so he went through grooming, baths, ear drops, baby benedryl until finally we took him back to the vet and found out it was ear mites so he had to have 2 shots and medicine. He is SOOOOO done with vets.  So thats why he is hiding in the chair in this picture. He is just so done. BUT im happy to say he is feeling much better and the vet said " Teddy...go be a dog for the next year and I dont want to see you back here " hahaha  

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday and stay warm.

it reminds me of you

The first person I loved reminds me of the color was the color of his camaro; the smell was of floor wax and sweat that he got from working for the maintenance crew in my high school; The sound of Van was his favorite band, and the taste of that reminds me of him is the taste of tears.   I saw him recently in Marshalls shopping with his wife ,I assume. Wow how 20 years had changed us both and not.... I smile now thinking of him. First love is meant for smile...not tears! 

Thank you to the Daily Writers write writers prompts !!!  :)  great inspiration!!

Special stone

I can remember every detail about that stone. Probably because for a long 3 minutes I stared down at it , focusing only on that stone while trying to block out the world. I noted its oblong shape with odd rough borders, its sand color with pink speckles and the slight grooves on the left side of it. But mostly I noticed the loudness of the rock. It started as a hum but now it is nothing but screams. Screams for me to turn back, to not go forward, for me to not make that final step. And for those long minutes I look, examine and listen to the last stepping stone on the path from your house. The last stone before I reach my car and end my walk with you....end my life with you. I will remember every detail of that stone because it was the last memory I have of us and our beautiful, colorful, odd and rocky love.

Surprise snow :)

What a beautiful morning. I wasnt expecting any snow but I woke up to a winter wonderland. I am so glad that I had a day off and didnt have to worry about how the road will be. Instead I have decided to maybe do some baking ( I just wrote BANKING hhahaa I probably should be doing that instead but thats no fun haha). I am sitting here listening to Teddy barking at the guys with the snow plows and drinking a yummy Hot Chocolate.  I figured I'd do some writing today so expect some random posts. 
Here are some pictures of my Christmas tree. It is on my deck headed for the chipper but it looks so pretty snow covered that I think it might get a reprieve for the day :)  haha

Thank you mother nature for giving me some photo subjects today :)     I hope you all have a wonderful friday!!!

2014-a new day

Resolution # 4 -work more on my blog. So here I am :)   2013 was a mix of good and bad but the ending of 2013 really did a number on me and my family. So Im hoping that 2014 will be a much better year with some major changes :)  But I will reflect on some of the good that happened in 2013 :

** I got a job that I absoultely love love LOVE. I would still do it even if i won the lotto.
** I became a Godmother (again) to my adorable sweet godson Zachary. I love him so much !
** I traveled a lot to florida and got to spend time with my family and friends.
** I was able to go Hershey Pa with my bestie Michele and we spent some fun times and also went to see Joel Osteen. His message was amazing and I would love to see him again!
** I was able to see my Packers play at Metlife stadium against the Giants. We didnt win but i had the best day (except for a flat tire) but it was awesome!!
** I made a lot of new friends in 2013 and they have all become very important in my life. I am thankful for them everyday !
** I spent a super fun weekend in Vermont for labor Day weekend . I forgot what a beautiful state it is and i cant wait to go back.

2014 I want to travel more and experience more joy in my life.  I want to visit friends and spend more quality time with those I love. I want to try new things and learn new things. I want to expand my horizons. I want to live a fuller life and I want to love who I am.
I am wishing a very happy new year for you all and I apologize in advance for all the posts. I plan on being a blogging FOOL in 2014 ! :)
