Hi friends, Thanks Sugar for the awesome New Year's tag on the left,It has been a few days since I last updated and I do apologize for that, Been sick with the cold from hell and got some bad news a few days ago about a good friend of mine I met in high school who has Stage 4 cancer which is'nt curable so I guess I was kind of depressed and wanting to lay low and cry and be alone for a few days.I went back to work today for the first time in 5 days, got my sinus headache back at work, it made for a long and tiring day to say the least.I was really happy to go home today, I ca'nt believe tommorow is New Year's , 2008 was not a good year for me, I lost my dad and other crap happened I do'nt really want to talk about, but I have high hopes for the new year, and we have a new president that I think is totally awesome and I think 2009 will be better for all of us..I wish you all a wonderful upcoming New Year's , am happy I met some new Blogger friends this year, I am grateful to have such great friends in my life, I love you all Lisa XOXO

Hi friends, hope you all had a good weekend, see that look on Jorja's face in the picture I posted, I will have that same look on my face Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. when I am off work and all the Christmas rush is over - relief I made it through another Christmas.When I went to work tonight the place was a zoo, Um what bad economy I asked several people, could have fooled me seeing the crowds and long lines.I love this time of the year but I also do'nt like it also, the holidays tend out to bring out the ugly side of alot of people and it 's really sad to see.
I found out some sad news a couple of days ago, this girl I went to high school with was found dead on a golf course in my former hometown, I was friendly with her in high school and she was shy , but really nice.I feel for her family and I hope they can get some answers as to what happened to Laura.
I would like to thank Chrissie , Monica and MJ for the cards that came in the past two days, as most of you know I love getting mail.Wishing you all a great week, It should be a wet one here, I love you all Lisa XOXO

Hi friends, I am home after a very busy day at work, Oh man it was crazy in there today.I just tried my best to keep the lines moving as fast as I could so nobody would yell at me or give me dirty looks and guess what, it worked, lol.For the most part the customers in my store are pretty cool, but trust me there are trolls who come in a store this time of the year and complain about the lines, do'nt know what they really expect at Christmas time, stay home and shop online if you do'nt like it, shit, lol.
Anyhow I am off for the next 2 days , yea got so much to do yet.Caylee Anthony has been on my mind all week long, that beautiful little girl should be celebrating Christmas too like other children instead of being buried , God it's sad, that never should have happened to her.Wishing you all a relaxing Friday, got one card in the mail from my awesome friend Jen in Arizona, Jen is a Jorja friend of mine, I Love You All Lisa XOXOXO

Hi friends, hope you all had a good Tuesday, man it is cold here !!!!!!!!!! Temps are in the 30's, that is cold for San Mateo.My store was a madhouse from the minute I walked in today until the minute I left, When I came in I saw this woman who have waited before in the past, she is what I would consider a huge troll !!!!!! Anyhow Virginia wanted me to go over to the Christmas food section and check something that troll lady wanted to buy, however what she wanted was'nt there so it was very satifying for me to tell her we were out of what she wanted which we were.
I'm watching some vintage CSI episodes on Spike TV, I am sad about Billy Petersen leaving the show in January, last week's episode where he announced he was leaving was sad, I am not sure about how Lawrence Fishbourne will be on CSI.I ca'nt imagine CSI without Grissom myself, No Christmas cards today when I checked the mail, but I must say it is fun to get them in the mail, Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday, I Love You All Lisa XOXOXO

Hi friends, I tried to post an entry earlier, but I was having trouble.Thankfully everything is ok now, Ok now you all must have seen that video clip of that guy throwing his shoes at George Bush yesterday, Oh man , that was priceless, lol. I guess George Bush wo'nt be asking for new shoes for Christmas, snicker, sorry could'nt resist.
Tommorow I will be back at work, hopefully the day will go smoothly with no trolls, but it seems like there is one in every crowd.I love my Apple ipod, I can send emails from it or check my mail, pretty cool.There is a CSI marathon on Spike TV right now, pretty cool.I miss Jorja on there so much, I saw some new pictures of her today, she is just so beautiful !!!!!!! Wishing you all a good upcoming week and thank you to Emmi and Cindy for the pretty cards, I love you all Lisa XOXOXO

Hi friends, I have a heavy heart tonight as I type this, I was just devastated this morning when I found out Caylee Anthony's body was found.Although from the minute she went missing June 16, th she captured my heart.She had such a beautiful angelic face I had always hoped deep down she would be found alive.I followed this case from the beginning turning on Nancy Grace every night to find out the latest news about Caylee.
I always prayed every night for Caylee and she crossed my mind at least once a day whether at work or at the grocery store.Lisa Jo I know you must be so sad hearing about this too, you and I both followed this case very closely.I do'nt have much more to say tonight, but I love you all very much, Lisa XOXOXO

Hi friends, hope you all had a good Wednesday.My day was pretty hectic to say the least.My store was so busy today several times I asked myself " What bad economy ?" When I was trying to go use the restroom today this old man walked up to me with a bag of candy and asked "How much?" I calmly told him one of the cashiers could check for him and went on my way, people can be so annoying sometimes.
Later on during this afternoon a customer got mad at Diane when it took her 15 minutes to come over to Julie's register and approve a return.The lady snapped to Diane "It took you long enough" Diane with a clenched lip muttered " I was with a customer" I fought a huge smile.I finally got all of my Christmas cards written out so you all should be recieving them very soon in the mail.My last paycheck I recieved was majorly screwed up so I had to be reissued another one and it has'nt come yet, so frustrating because I have more shopping to do, sigh .......... I was playing around with my ipod touch last night and it is sooooooo awesome,. I can check my email on there or post a journal entry, hope you all have a good Thursday, A huge thanks to Lyn for the pretty Christmas card that came yesterday, I love you all Lisa XOXOXO

Hi friends, hope you all had a good start to your week.I was off work today so I spent a good majority of the day writing out my Christmas cards.Thank you so much for all of your kind comments regarding my Saturday entry, really I'll be ok, Sometimes I try so hard to see the good in others I blind myself to the fact that not everyone is real or a true friend.I do believe that there are good people in the world however because everyone that reads my journal is a good person.
Well tommorow it will be back to work, hopefully my day will go fast with no trolls.I get nervous this time of the year working in retail because I see alot of trolls out in the stores, I wish those kind of people would just stay home and shop online, anyhow wishing you all a good rest of the week, thank you to Amy and Gretchen for the Christmas cards, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Hi friends, hope you all are having an enjoyable weekend.Recently I learned another hard lesson in life about someone I thought was a friend, but it turns out this person is a user and does'nt care about me at all.It's not a J- lander , but someone I worked with .Unfortunately there is a store meeting tommorow early so I will be stuck seeing this person.I came to care about this person alot, even emailed them to see how they were doing since we work different shifts now, but they never bothered to write back so I see now that this friend - ship is one sided with me doing all the work, that's it. It's over, another hard lesson in life, I could cry about this, but it's not worth it.I'll get over it, eventually.

Hi friends, hope you all had a good Tuesday.Mine was ok, My store was pretty crazy today and it will just get worse in the next 3 weeks.I'm telling you, bears have it good, they get to hibernate in the winter and wake up in the Spring.Wish I could transform myself into a bear between now until January 1'st.
I am going to try and get my Christmas cards out this coming Saturday so anyone that would like to exchange cards with me, email me your address please if I do'nt have it already.I am so excited I have most of all of you again on Blogger.I thought I would end up hating Blogger, but it's not really bad.I must say those 6 months when my computer was down was pure hell for me, my computer is my lifeline !!!!!!!! I love being able to talk to you all again and being able to journal again.
Anyhow hope you all have a good hump day tommorow, Emmi thank you so much for the Thanksgiving card and the picture of you , you are so beautiful !!!!! I just love getting snail -mail.My tv in the living room crapped out this weekend so I went to Best Buy on Saturday and bought a flat screen one.It will not be delivered until December 14'th however because Best Buy has been really busy lately.I mailed Jorja's Christmas present off Monday, I hope she likes it.I got her a pretty eco -logical calender with pretty pictures inside like icebergs and polar bears and flowers, and peace sign earrings.I love Jorja so much, she is such a great human being and a good person in real life.I am proud to be her # 1 fan, lol.Have a good Wednesday everyone, I Love You All Lisa XOXOXO
