|oooo, one more thing
The Steve who friended me on myspace is NOT my Steve. In fact, I met him for coffee once and that's 3 hours of my life I'll never get back.
And my business website is: www.healingtraditions.biz
check it out if you have a chance. I'm open to opinions and suggestions :)
|been nudged.....so here goes
K, it's been like over 2 years since I've posted anything. It's been a long 2 years. Here's the recap.
Went to massage school and now I'm a certified massage therapist in the state of Wisconsin. I'm in the process of starting my own part time business doing massage therapy, Reiki, and crystal healing. I've become a Reiki Master teacher and completed 8 levels of crystal classes, so I'll be teaching Reiki and crystal healing as well. On the 21st of this month I'll be completing advanced aromatherapy, which will give me my Level 1 certificate from the NAHA.
I still work at the phone company and probably will for the next 16yrs until I can retire.
I'm divorced and own a new home in Brookfield, WI. I have full custody of my daughter and joint custody of my 2 sons. I still see them everyday :) I also have my 19yr old niece and her friend living with me.
As for the cute guy from work, we've become much closer, but still not dating yet. I'm not going to rush it. It'll happen when it's supposed to.
Congrats to Tee on the novel!!!!
Hope everyone is doing well. I've been keeping up my myspace more and have pics on there. If you're interested, you can go to www.myspace.com/gingergurl83 and check it out.
Take care, and maybe it won't be 2 yrs before I update this again LOL

|I may be evil, but at least I'm not too bitchy :P
|You Are 45% Bitchy|
Generally, you're an average woman, with average moods. But sometimes... well, watch out!
Sometimes, you let your mean side get the better of you. And you enjoy every minute of it.

|Find your voice and sing like there's no tomorrow
Well, I've done it.
Most of you know that my situation at home has been less than pleasant for this past year.
In March 2005, my husband was in a horrible situation at work and we agreed that he could quit his job and take 2-3 months off before searching for another job.
Here we are, over a year later, and I still have yet to see him start his job hunt. This last year I've been going through my own personal hell, bringing to the forefront memories of all of my past relationships with drunken losers. I had patience and sat back, hoping history was not about to repeat itself.
After much consultation with friends, a psychic, a Reiki healer....
I've found my inner strength and voice and spoke my truth. I sat down with my husband yesterday and discussed all of our problems, including those prior to the quitting of the job, problems we've had for years. I then told him he had until the end of June to get a job and fix our problems, or it would be the end of our marriage.
Now, per the advice of my spirit guides, I shall wait and see. Current Mood: peaceful

|Attack of the Bubbleheaded Bleach Blondes!!
First, my workout update: 3.5miles on the treadmill and 20mins of pilates.
Now: Midnight Musings from the Ginger-Haired Mistress of the Dark
It's a sad, sad state of affairs when hoochie mamas can't get a man on a Saturday night.
Most of you know that I work 3rd shift as a phone technician (Inside technician, I don't climb poles -- shoosh you! filthy minds
Anyhoo, when I work on a Friday or Saturday night I do a lot of driving around town, during which I always stop at my usual gas station to get a package of peanuts and coffee or soda. So, I'm in the gas station around 3:40am getting the usual when in walks skank #1.
Now, I'm doing my last bit of shopping (picking up a newspaper) when I hear the clerk tell skank#1, "That register's closed, but I can help you over on this one." Apparently the 2 racks of candy bars blocking the closed register weren't enough of a hint. I'm close enough to easily cut her off and get in line first but I figure hey, I'm in no hurry so I'll just let skank#1 go ahead. With the tiny 3FEET of counter space, skank#1 decided to put her bottle of water and soda down as far away from the register as possible, leaving me behind juggling my newspaper, wallet, and bag of peanuts while balancing my soda on my nose. Do you think the skank might've moved up so I could at least put my stuff down since I was nice enough to let her go first? Of course not. Do you think skank#1 could move her stuff after she was checked out and was trying to determine if her change should go into her coin purse or billfold part of her wallet? Nah....
As I'm exiting the gas station, I see another car of skanks. This time I'll call them skank#2 and skank#3 so as not to confuse the reader. As I'm walking to my car, skank#2 gets out of the passenger side of her car, stands in the headlights of the car right in front of the gas station window, and makes a complete spectacle of herself digging her underwear out of her ass while skank#3 is Woohooing and honking her horn.
At this point I make an effort to get into the car as quickly as possible because I can't restrain the irresistible urge to sing, "Where, oh where, have the smart people gone?" (Pink, "Stupid Girl") With every ounce of good judgment, I'm able to retain my composure and get into the car without a sound. Can't.....be.....snarky.....in........public.......on.........company.........time......................
Being 'the glass is half full' type of person that I am, I try to put a positive spin on this. 3 Skanks at a gas station at 3:40am on a Saturday night/Sunday morning, with no sign of any men. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Could it be that maybe men are starting to come to the realization that their time and money are better spent on down-to-earth women with an IQ in the 3 digit range (no decimal points!)?

|No Workout Today, Was Too Busy Being a Proud Mum
While I appreciate all of your support in my fitness quest, I'm sorry to say there is no workout today. However.........
At 8:30 this morning, my daughter gets a call from her
snotty little friend Chelsea.
Chelsea: "Danielle, we have a 4H Volleyball tournament today."
Danielle: "We do?"
Chelsea: "We need one more player or we can't play!!!!!"
Danielle: "Lemme ask my Mom."
Mum: *still pondering what we should do on our first free Saturday in months* "Cool beans! Now we have something to do. Tell her we'll be there in 20mins."
The first game of the Tournament: We
got our Asses Kicked lost. None of the kids seemed to know what to do and looked like bumbling idiots out there!! I grabbed a ball and took to kids over to an unused portion of the gym and ran some drills with them.
The second game (double elimination tournament): Er, I thought they knew what to do. But I guess I forgot to mention that SOMEBODY had to hit the ball!!! Preferably before it bounced! At least Danielle made some effort and was able to actually get the ball over the net.
Beaten and disheartened, as we are used to being due to years of very poor basketball coaching (eh, that's another story), we get our coats and start heading out, when one of the high school girls approaches us......
Stephanie (teh high school girl): "Danielle, we're shorthanded for the senior tournament. Would you like to come back at 11:30 and play with us?"
Beaten and disheartened Danielle: "Not really."
Wide-eyed Mum pulls Danielle aside: "Do you know why she's asking you?"
Depressed Danielle: "No."
Shocked Mum: "Because you were one of the better players out there. You know, she didn't even ask your
snotty little friend Chelsea, or Colleen to stay."
Bright-eyed Danielle: "Really?" Turns to Stephanie: "Sure, I'll play."
Between tournaments, we spend some quality Mother/Daughter time at Target, where I buy her her first pair of jeans in the Junior section. She's a size 3. A Size 3!!! Er, those genes didn't come from my side of the family. I'm suddenly inspired to have a salad for lunch instead of a fish sandwich.
We got back to the gym promptly at 11:30 ready to play. Now, 10 teams + 2 courts = A looooooong wait. We don't play our first game until 12:45. In the mean time, I'm watching all the other teams that consist of mainly high school students. Our team consists of 3 high school kids, an 8th grader, my ickle 6th grader, and a 4th grader. We are going to get our asses kicked. eh, maybe we shoulda just went home.
The first game: Our team goes on the court and the high school kids spread out to help the ickle ones, making sure the 4th grader is the last to serve. As the ball goes back and forth,
Mummy's Little Pride and Joy, er, Danielle, is actually bumping, setting, and getting the ball over the net very well. She's playing right up there with the high school kids. The only thing she couldn't do was get the ball over the net on a serve because they had to serve from farther back in the senior tournie. But in the end, WE WON!!!!!
In between games, I show Danielle the proper technique for serving.
Teh last game: Oh crap, the other team consists of 6 high school juniors and seniors. Here comes the ass-kicking.
Mummy's Little Athlete, er Danielle, continues to play well, to the amazement of her older teammates and spectators. She serves for the first time, but doesn't quite have enough oomph to get the ball over the net. When she rotates around to serve again, the game is close. Mummy's Little Volleyball Star, er, Danielle makes it over the net!!!! And makes it over again!!! And again!!!!!! But this time, they lose the serve on the volley. The game was close up until the end, but they did lose. They made it all the way to the semi-finals.
More importantly, for the first time in her athletic career, Danielle felt what it was like to be on the winning side of the bracket. I think it gave her a shot of confidence that she sorely needed.
Am such a PROUD MUMMY!!!!!
(Sorry about the crappy resolution, I had to use my camera phone. Danielle is the one serving.)

|Inspired by Deena
After seeing how wonderful almond_joyz
has been doing with her workouts, I think I'm going to try to update my lj daily with my workout info. So........today I did a combination cardio and weight lifting for an hour (Kathy Smith is totally kicking my ass). Yesterday I walked 4miles on the treadmill and did a 15min pilates workout.
My goal is to workout for at least an hour, six days per week. Since I've been doing this the entire month of March, I don't have any witty soreness banter for you, just boring old results. Current Mood: accomplished

|You might be a redneck if.....
So, I went to my in-laws to celebrate Christmas last Sunday. Just a little back story here: I married into a somewhat well-to-do family, all of which are nice except for my snobby brother-in-law. I don't know why he feels the need to be a snob, he's just a technician like me, making the same base wage as I do.
Anyhoo, on with the story...
He's telling me about this metal sculpture of a cat with a clock in its belly that he bought for his wife for Christmas. (She's mumbling to me about the diamond earrings she has asked for for the last 2yrs that he refuses to buy her.)
He tells me that he got it at some art gallery, the same gallery he got this hideous looking metal peacock from that he gave his wife for Christmas last year. (and off to the side, I'm still hearing about the earrings she wanted)
He is shocked at the puzzled look I'm giving him because I'd never heard of the place, nor did I care. He then tells me I'm not refined and into the arts, so of course I wouldn't know about this. (off to the side I see my husband smirking, waiting for my cheeky response)
I decided not to let him bate me into an argument and just mumble something about putting a big dent into the bottle of wine I have waiting for me at home.
The brother-in-law pipes in, "I like wine. What kind do you have?"
I say, "Sangria."
He says, "What kind of Sangria."
I say, "The $2.99 a bottle Sangria."
He looks at me aghast. I say, "At least it's not in a box. I'm not 'refined' remember?"
End of conversation, because at this point all of my inlaws are cracking up, (except for said brother-in-law, who now feels guilty.)
