Sooooooo tired

 Hi friends, hope you all had a great weekend.I am so tired , I wrote letters to Billy Petersen and Carol Mendelsohn and Jorja Fox that will be going out in the mail tommorow.I know some of you have written letters to Jorja as well and I am so touched .Thank you from the bottom of my heart , you know who you are. Also thank you to everyone who has signed the petition for Jorja as well.I know some of you thought the first episode of CSI was boring but I thought it was amazing and Jorja did a outstanding job in that episode.She is so strong and brave.I knew she would be ok, I found a youtube clip of the ending from Dead Doll and saved it . I ca'nt watch the end without crying during the part where Grissom is holding her hand and she opens her eyes and looks at him.OMG the tears, I love the way he looked at her, so sweet !!!!!!!!!!  Oh and by the way Thursday night CSI won the ratings for the night, Woo-hoo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a feeling on next week's CSI Ecklie is going to give them both hell about thier relationship.I have been a lazy bum all day, doing chores and not much else.I washed up the dishes, threw some laundry in the washer, made my bed, took out the trash , exciting huh ? Lol anyhow I hope you all have a good upcoming week, I ca'nt believe September is over, it went by so fast.October is here  and Halloween is fast approaching, I love Halloween, I like it better then Christmas, Christmas is so over -rated.Halloween is just fun :) Have a good week everyone, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

A huge "Thank You "

 Hi friends, today has not been a very good one for me but a sweet angel in J-land made it a little more easier to bear today.I cried so much today that my eyes hurt.I am shattered by the news that Jorja Fox is leaving the show in November.To me she is the biggest part of why I watch the show and I wo'nt be watching the show anymore if she is'nt on there. I always felt such a huge connection to her character Sara on the show.I feel like I have riding a roller coaster to hell these past two days.When I got home there was a package waiting for me in my mailbox from Angie who makes her own line of skincare products ( CanyonSun)  which are so amazing.She sent me an apple pie body butter and a lemon meringue pie whipped body butter and they both smell absolutely fabulous !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Her products are wonderful and better then any lotions that are sold in stores.Thank you Angie so very much, you and talking to Emmi on the phone this morning both helped my awful day a little bit brighter.I Love You All, have a great weekend Lisa XOXO

Damn it anyway :(

 Hi friends, Well I was happy last night after the show ended that Sara lived but then shortly after that I found Jorja's interview article with TV Guide that comes out next week in stores and it looks like she will be leaving the show after all in November.Damn it, Damn , it, Damn it :( I cried this morning after reading it, I am crushed that she is leaving.CSI will not be the same without Jorja, now if you all will excuse me I'm going to go pout in the corner.Sigh .................... I Love You All and Emmi thanks for being there for me this morning when I called you up crying.I am tore up over this news.

Ok breathe Lisa breathe........... It's ok

 OMG that show tonight, wow is all I can say.I am sweating and my mascara has streaked down my face and I probably look laughable right now, but I am so happy I do'nt give a shit- Sara is alive !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Thank God , this summer of hell is over, and I am exhausted.Now I will need to get through the rest of the week till next Thursday night and Ecklie if you have any heart at all inside of you , you will go easy on Grissom and Sara next week cuz if you do'nt I might have to kick your ass into the desert myself and stick you under a car !!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyhow on that note , going to bed, Peace , Love You All Lisa XOXO

Tonight is the night :)

 Ok guys, tonight is the night , I have been waiting all summer long for tonight, I'm hoping and praying that there is a good outcome for Sara, I will be very depressed if there is'nt, Hope you all enjoy the show tonight and if you would like a write a review in your journals after you see it, I would like to read it, I Love You All Lisa XO P.S. Long live Sara !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok guys tommorow is the day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Hi friends, well tommorow night is the night I have been waiting for all summer long.This whole summer was pure hell for me wondering if Sara will live or die.I just hope that Sara has a good outcome .I wo'nt handle it well if she dies.I may need a nurse to come over here and sedate me if Sara dies.I also do'nt think after everything Sara has been through on the show that it would be fair to kill her off. I think Sara is a very important character on CSI. I feel very attached to Sara , she is like me in so many ways.Besides Sara makes Grissom happy and we all want to see that beautiful smile on Grissom's face right ???????? Work was good today, I went in as a favor to Anthony, when he gave me a high five today he squeezed my hand and I got tingles in my stomach, lol.It was a slow day but a good day.I wore my CSI T shirt to work since I am off tommorow.One of my former managers Autumn loved CSI and I never knew that until after she had left our store, figures.I heard though that she is working at a new Cost Plus in Las Vegas now, I should find out which store and call her up and say "Hi" I hope you all have a great Thursday, you know where I will be at 9:00 p.m. , hope you all enjoy the show tommorow night too and long live Sara !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I Love You All  Lisa XOXO And one more day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Had to throw that in, hehe :)

Sunday Musings

 Hi friends, hope you all had a good Sunday.I am happy to report that I am finally starting to feel better and last night I got some much needed sleep -yea !!!!!!!!!!! I was at the grocery store last night and I bought a box of Mucinex-this stuff works great !!!!!It clears up chest congestion so you can breathe easier.  It seemed a little expensive, the box was $ 11.99 but well worth the price because now I can breathe without coughing.I spent the day reading CSI Fan Fictions and getting caught up on journals and thinking up a Chapter 51 for my own CSI fan fiction , still composing an entry in my head.I will be doing a birthday entry in my journal Tuesday for a very special friend of mine , Emmi who is one of the sweetest and most awesome friends I have ever met online.Also I would like all of you to say a little prayer for my good friend Margo.She is leaving tommorow for a two week adventure, please pray that she has a safe trip and comes home safe, thank you all . :) 4 more days until CSI starts, wahoo !!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope you all have a great upcoming week, I am going to post a really good chicken recipe tommorow , I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Sooooooooooooooooo Tired

 Hi friends, I just got home from work and I am drained.It was a very busy Saturday, rainy days are extremely busy for us always.This morning when I woke up hacking and with blurry eyes it took all the strength I had not to call in sick.Ugh I so did'nt want to go in today, but I did.I made it through the day, and another thing , the bigwigs from Corporate never did show up but was I upset about that ? No, of course not, I was thrilled.I had a hard time talking today because every other sentence led to a coughing fit so I had to keep a cup of water next to me at the register the whole day.I hope since I am off until Tuesday that I can shake this bug by then.Being sick is one thing I do'nt like about Fall, the fear of always getting sick is always on my mind.I try to get the flu shot every year so I do'nt have to worry about catching that.I absolutely hate the flu and I will do anything I can to avoid catching it.Chrissie I am so glad your daughters got to thier destination safely, I prayed for them last night and sweet little Daniel as well, Cindy I hope he is feeling better by now .I hope you all have a good Sunday, I have'nt slept in 3 days, I feel like a walking zombie, before I end this, 5 more days until CSI !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yea, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

I made it through the day

  Hi friends, hope you all had a good Friday.Next week at this time I will know Sara's fate on CSI and it will be a relief for me because this whole summer has been pure hell for me.I went back to work today, still feeling congested and having trouble talking too long without a coughing fit.One of my co-workers Virginia brought her 2 month old grandson by for me to meet and wow I wanted to hold that little precious baby so bad , but I sadly told her that I was sick, and she understood.Her grandson had been born premature and had been in the hospital for a while after his birth so there was no way I would want to expose him to more germs .It would'nt be fair to him.My day was pretty quiet, Anthony informed me that tommorow some people from Corporate would be stopping by, Great, that should be a fun-packed day.I have to say one thing, thier timing of visits is pretty crappy, I mean Saturday is the busiest day of the week for us and Anthony will be needed for returns and furniture carry -outs , sigh............ wish me luck tommorow, ugh hopefully thier visit will be a short one.I am so tired , last night before bed I drank some Thera-Flu but when I went to bed later after that I could'nt sleep.Is that stuff loaded with caffiene or something ??????????? I hope you all have a good weekend, 6 more days until CSI, lol.I am so excited, Cindy I advise you maybe to tape next week's show so you do'nt miss it, you do'nt want to miss next week's premiere , trust me. I am hoping and praying Sara lives too, because if she does'nt I am going to need some big -time hugs.I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Still Sick :(

 Hi friends, hope you all are having a good Thursday.I am still sick and trying to recover before going back to work tommorow.My nose is still stuffed up and I have an annoying tickle in my throat which makes even talking on the phone impossible because talking can trigger a coughing fit which causes me to gag.Ugh last night I tried eating some chicken noodle soup , it tasted good but then after eating it I felt nauseous and decided to go back to my bedroom and stay close to the toilet.I hate being sick, I am going to try and rest before Living Doll comes on CBS at 9:00 p.m. later, I am so glad I have a second chance to see that episode again, the only thing I am starting to wonder is why every time it is on are I sick ?????? Lol the ending of Living Doll gives me shivers down my spine when it shows Sara's hand moving under the car in the raining desert, and then To Be Continued .........This summer has been agony for me, I love Sara's character on CSI and seeing her hurt or in trouble kills me. Also having a cliff hanger ending back in May when Living Doll first premiered was a first ever for CSI.Finally next Thursday on CBS Dead Doll will be premiering, I am hoping that the Dead Doll part refers to Sara's kidnapper Natalie by the way and not Sara .I am hoping Grissom can finally fess up to his feelings and tell Sara he loves her.C'mon Grissom let her know how you feel, tell Sara you love her.Before I forget I want to thank Chrissie for sending me a letter, it means so much to me that you took the time to sit down and write to me,I absolutely love getting snail-mail,  thank you so much.Tommorow is Friday, back at work for me, I hope this virus would have started to clear up a little more, I hate being at work sick, Have a good Friday everyone, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Boycotting the Emmy's tonight

  Hi friends, hope you all had a good Sunday today.I was upset to read this morning that CSI was snubbed by the Emmy Awards once again so I wo'nt bother watching them tonight.It pisses me off so much that CSI is always overlooked by them.It's the best show on TV !!!!!!!!!!! They will always be #1 to me except if Sara gets killed off, then I may have to find another show to love.I heard this morning O.J. Simpson was arrested in Las Vegas at the Palms Hotel, what a creep !!!!!!! Hope they lock his arrogant ass up in jail and throw away the key, keep that guy off the streets, tommorow I am off so I will have time to read the rest of my library books so I can return them.I walked today for 45 minutes , but it was nice to get out for a while. Chrissie I have another letter for you to go out tommorow as well.Tonight I'm making tacos for dinner, Have a good week everyone, I Love You All Lisa,  and if you are a CSI fan skip the Emmy's tonight, Jorja totally deserved an award for Empty Eyes and Billy deserved an Emmy for Burn Out !!!!!!!!!! I hate that CSI got snubbed again !!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday Happenings And a CSI Spoiler

 Hi friends, hope you all had a good Saturday.I worked today for a little while and it was a very busy day.The hours went by quickly and I got 15 emails for Anthony and 4 customers to sign up for our World Market credit card as well.Debbi will be moving back here in about two weeks, I am very happy about that, I entered a contest today to win a Tivo this morning , I doubt I will win but I will pray that I do.I think maybe at Christmas I'll ask for one, I do'nt want much anyway, lol.2 more weeks until CSI's first new premiere, I ca'n t wait and I have a fresh box of Kleenex on my nightstand waiting for that night because I know that I will cry during that episode, I am off for the next two days, time to hit the exercise room, Chrissie, there will be another letter going out for you Monday, Have a good Sunday everyone,  By the way I just read a CSI spoiler someone posted on the Wiki board that Sara does live and Grissom hugs her when he finds her, OMG Yes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am officially happy now, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

The Weekend Is Coming

 Hi friends, hope you all had a good Friday.I am still in a little bit of a funk , think Mr Red may be the factor for that, Sometimes I get a little blue before Mr Red's arrival, I am planning on getting a V.C.R. soon but it wo'nt be before C.S.I. starts on the 27'th.There is no way , I have lots of bills this month that have to be paid, probably in a month I will be able to get one.Angie thank you so much for offering to have your dad tape that episode for me, You do'nt know how much I appreciate that,  Chrissie I appreciate you trying to help me as well .I am not sure yet about the time though of C.S.I. on the 27'th though, usually it always starts at 9:00 p.m. usually on CBS every Thursday, but Jodi told me a few weeks ago that Grey's Anatomy was premiering the same night as CSI so the start for CSI was going to be at an earlier time that night.Aaaaaaarrrrrrggggghhhhhhhh,  hope I do'nt forget it may be on earlier, I had a doctor's appt today, she said my blood pressure is lower now in the 120's so I guess my pills are finally working.She wants me to exercise 4 or 5 times a week and cut back on chinese food which is my biggest weakness.Tommorow I am working 12 -5 , should be interesting.I hope you all have a great weekend, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Back to the drawing board

  Hi friends, for right now it does'nt look like I'll be getting the DVR in time for CSI's premiere in two weeks.I'm sad and frustrated ,  I do'nt have $ 200 to buy one brand new at Circuit City or Best Buy not to mention paying someone there to  come hook it up for me here, another $ 80 - $100 , I went on the CSI message board and begged them all if someone could record the first episode for me on a disk on Sept 27'th, I got 2 responses saying watch it on innertube, yeah maybe if my computer was more modern I could, besides I  much prefer watching something on TV rather then on the computer, I called Comcast today and I should have known renting a DVR was not what I thought, the gal on the phone told me it would be $ 11.95 for 6 months and then after that I would have to upgrade my cable and pay more each month, I was 'nt banking on that, ugh so much for that idea, I may just have to go back to the dark ages and buy a V.C.R. at this point, are they running pretty cheap nowadays ? Hope you all have a good Friday, I'm bummed but I'll live, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

What a day

     Hi friends, I am so tired, today was very long and tiring .I woke up and knew it was going to be a long day.I went into work feeling like someone had poked a hole in me and sucked all the energy out of me.When I was helping someone in my store I saw Cyndie come in yakking on her cell phone, probably showing off.She dressed like Minnie Mouse gone bad today -she was wearing a black top and skirt with white polka dots and her big tummy was hanging out of the shirt, literally hanging out of the bottom of the too tight top,  wow is all I thought, does'nt she ever look in the mirror before she leaves the house ? It is funny to me that Cyndie is a district manager because she is certainly no role model, she was in a horrible mood today too, her eyes had this glassy,  lifeless look to them, it was a very long day indeed with Cyndie hanging out for much of the 8 hours I was there, I had a hard time staying awake at work too which was not an easy thing to hide, everytime Cyndie was'nt around I went into one of the aisles and yawned, I was so happy when I got off tonight, I came home and read the new TV Guide for next week which came today, there was a big CSI article in it which showed all the cast , but Sara which made me tear up.Darn those producers anyway, I know they want to keep up the suspense and mystery until Sept 27'th but I've had enough.Sara is my favorite on C.S.I. and it has been a long summer of wondering will she live or not, looking for spoilers online,digging for a clue and hoping she lives, I've exhausted myself finding out updates and articles about Jorja , praying for her to come back, I know for a fact if Sara is killed off on C.S.I. I for one wo'nt watch anymore, that will be the end for me, I am so glad I have the next two days off, I 'm going to call 1800- Comcast tommorow and try to get someone here this week to install a DVR.Wish me luck, I need it, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Remembering 9/ 11 and other things

  Hi friends, thank you to Sugar for the beautiful tag above, 6 years ago today was a day I will never forget.I woke up early at 7:00 p.m. as usual to get ready for work and the first images on the TV screen were breaking news and the sight of a plane crashing through the left tower of the  World Trade Center, my mouth dropped and my hand quickly covered it.I could'nt believe what I was seeing.I screamed a few minutes later when the second tower was hit, I cried so much that day, I went to work feeling numb, it was a day that changed America forever, God Bless all the innocent lives that were lost that day and all the heroes who saved  numerous lives.I also send up prayers for all of the victim's families as well offering them comfort and all the brave solders who continue to fight for us.

I wanted to remind you all tonight on Spike TV is the CSI episode Empty Eyes at 8:00 p.m., this is the episode where Jorja Fox wore the necklace I sent her at the end when Grissom was wiping her tears, this is a very powerful episode of C.S.I. that is on tonight,  fitting that it is airing tonight on September 11'th, I think Jorja should have been nominated for an Emmy award for her role in this episode but once again C.S.I. was snubbed by the Emmy's this year so I wo'nt be watching them.Off to work I go soon, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Feeling a little better

  Hi friends, I am feeling a little better now . I never stay sad for very long, I bounce back pretty fast.I went for a walk by the water and did some soul searching.Lisa Jo I went to the liquor store earlier to buy some ice and on the newstand I saw a surprise for you there begging me to buy it so I did.It was a hard to find magazine with your favorite actress on the cover.It may take me a couple of weeks to get it to you but I will.I went out for mexican food earlier, funny how you feel ok right after and then later you start feeling full and bloated and like you never want to eat again.Anyhow I left a message for the Comcast guy earlier, hope he gets back to me tommorow, I would'nt think Monday would be that busy of a day for him , it never is in my store, have a good week everyone, Love You All Lisa XOXO

Feeling Depressed

 Hi everyone, I'm feeling a little down today, a good friend wrote an entry yesterday that hit home with me, made me go deep inside myself and remember how it felt growing up feeling second best as my dad's parents favored my two cousins Andrea and Christopher over me and my brothers.We were the forgotten ones on the holidays and graduations because my dad's parents were too busy attending all of Andrea and Christopher's events.I have always felt like a 5'th wheel in life, probably because of feeling second best all through life growing up.My dad favored my youngest brother over me and my other brother who is'nt in my life Anthony although Anthony was brave enough to call him on it, my youngest brother was smart and outgoing and funny.I was the kid who had A.D.D., the huge disappointment, the one who nobody had any hopes for, I have long accepted having A.D.D. but I feel in a way it has also been a curse in some ways too because I felt stupid growing up and I got the message that no matter what it did it would never be good enough.I feel in a way my grandparents ( my dad's mom and dad) favored my cousins over me and Anthony because they had no struggles in school like me, they were rich and privedged unlike us.It sucks big time being second best , feeling like you will never measure up but many times that is how I feel, Anthony was very hurt by my dad 's betrayal to him and I thought when he was in high school he experimented with drugs and started drinking to ease the hurt.His personality changed and he became an angry kid who was extremely handsome, it was sad to see, he distanced himself and we grew apart, I have'nt seen him in years, last I heard he got married and moved to Georgia.He has the number here but has never called.I have'nt talked to my dad in almost 6 years but I do'nt feel the need really.He always made me feel like crap and a failure.I could never measure up to his expectations and he could never accept me for me so why should I have to be someone other then myself to please him ? Being me is'nt easy sometimes but I try to be a good person and take the curveballs life throws at me.Thanks for listening, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

A favor to ask

  Hi friends, this is my third attempt writing a journal entry for tonight.Aol is on my last nerve right now, I was feeling weepy today and on the verge of tears, thanks Mr Red :) I have a question to ask those of you who have rented a DVR before from a cable company -do they make you pay a deposit in case the DVR gets broken or something ? More then likely I will have a DVR before Sept 27'th 's premiere of CSI but in case I do'nt I wondered if one of you could record it for me onto a blank disk, knowing me I will want to see that episode more then once , I honestly do'nt think Sara is going to die, Carol Mendelsohn even said the fans would be happy with the outcome of the first show so I think it's highly unlikely Sara wo'nt be found alive. Just as well I would'nt have handled that well since she is my favorite on the show and my favorite actress as well.On Sept 11'th on Spike TV the episode Empty Eyes will be on at 8:00 p.m. - that is the episode from this season where Jorja wore the necklace I sent her in the end where Grissom was so sweetly wiping her tears away, I need a Grissom in my life, there is a new kitty who has appeared here , very pretty white cat with a striped tail and blue eyes so the new kitty is Sara and Grissom and Catherine come every night for food too.Nick was around today too so I put food out for him as well.Hope you all have a good Sunday, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

I'm Home :)

  Hi friends, I made it home safely from Vegas tonight.Whew I am tired and my mailbox is overflowing but I'm happy.Vegas was so fun , it was really hot there the first 3 days, over 100 degrees, whew !!!!!!!!!! I took some awesome pictures for you guys, MGM was a nice hotel to stay at, the view I had out the window was the New York , New York , the hotel I stayed at last time, lol.In Vegas there are helicopters constantly whirring overhead all day and night, it's weird to not hear one now as I sit here, lol.I got lots of much -needed exercise walking around Vegas during the days, I hit almost every hotel , Celine Dion's show was amazing, I felt my eyes fill with tears as she came onto the stage looking beautiful, she has the voice of an angel- a gift from God, I also met Louie Anderson after his show, he used to host the Family Fued , he is a very sweet person and he posed for a picture with me.I was saddened to hear about Luciano Paravotti passing away.He had a beautiful voice and I enjoyed his music very much.I bought the new Us magazine yesterday with Anna Nicole on the cover to read by the pool yesterday and there was a little article inside about CSI- Carol Mendelsohn said "You will need a tissue during the first CSI" Uh one tissue ?????? I will need a whole damn box, lol.I was reading on one of Jorja's fansites tonight and was upset to see an article saying Jorja was only listed for 3 episodes and her name did'nt appear in anymore after that - Damn it anyway !!!!!!!!!!! I am hoping beyond hope that is a rumor, Grrrrrrrrrrr this summer is killing me, lol.I missed you all so much, I am playing catch up in all your journals so be patient with me, I Love You All and Missed You All Beyond Words Love Lisa XOXOXOXO
