So Much On My Mind

  Hi friends, I am loving my time off from work.I was saddened yesterday to hear about the tiger getting loose at the S.F. Zoo. I have been to that zoo many times before.I am puzzled as to how the tiger got out.I enjoyed the Cold Case marathon yesterday, there were some episodes on TNT that I had never seen.I really admire the lead character on Cold Case, Lily Rush, she is a strong woman but she is also compassionate and caring.She reminds me alot of me in some ways.I still feel that Jorja's character Sara on CSI was like my twin, she reminded me so much of myself, the strength but yet the vulnerability.The insecurity but yet at times Sara always cared deeply about the crime victims and got personally involved.I was thinking back last night about a comment a former neighbor told me once , my neighbor Larry who was a policeman used to live across the street from me in Pacifica, he was talking to me once and he said that out of all three of my mom's kids I was the best -looking.I remember my mouth dropped .Me ???????? That was quite flattering I guess but my brothers are pretty good -looking I have always thought.Another neighbor Kathy who used to live across the street from me too and she has two daughters, one of them Katie had William's Syndrome.She was such a sweet girl and I loved baby-sitting her.Kathy told me once she wished Katie looked like me.I was'nt sure how to respond to that.I loved Katie the way she was.Her facial features were pretty to me.Of course my dad never did me any favors growing up and made fun of my Italian nose and I grew up feeling like the ugliest kid on earth.I wish I had a scanner, I was looking at some of my childhood pictures the other day.I noticed in alot of them when I was two I did'nt smile much.Did I sense my parents were unhappy together at such a young age ? Anthony turned 27 today, I hope he had a great birthday, I'm going to hit Bath and Body Works early tommorow for thier big sale,   I love the bubble baths they have there but I never buy the lotions there because Angie 's  ( Canyonsun) lotions and body butters are way better then any at any store !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Hi Lisa,

That must have been so hard as a child growing up, hearing such nonsense from your Dad.  I'm so sorry you had to endure that, and that your brother had to also.  I'll never understand how adults can be cruel like that, especially to children!

Take Care,
~Bilinda~

I got a lot of bath and body works for Christmas from my nieces. They smell so good. Sorry again about your brother, maybe you guys can talk and try to get back together. This is gonna worry you now especially since there is a child now. Just think how much joy that would bring into your family life. Children are magically they make you forget and forgive with their innocence.
Take care, Chrissie

I'm saddend about the tiger as well.  I can't imagine going to the zoo and never leaving!  I hear they think the tiger actually jumped the 25 feet it would have needed to make it over the wall. Unbelievable!!

Awww Lisa,
I wanna kick your lame fathers ass for all the pain he has caused you.
Then give you a hug.
His loss, not your hon.
Sorry about the sad pics...
Nice compliment from one neighbor,
I understand your confusion by the other...
like you I am emotional and sympathetic.
I feel we "get" each other.
Now, if you just lived near by??
Off to bed now.
Hope I don't have bad/dreams, that's what I got Christmas EVE...
bad/dreams/nightmares & solid sleep 9 hours...
but in my dreams I was upset...
Does that mean I rested or not??
I guess sleep is sleep, well maybe??
I did sleep last night,
& going early again ...now.
Love,
YOUR friend,
Happy 2008 to us both!
& son too.
