After Thanksgiving Thoughts

Hi friends, that rainbow picture  below I took myself a few months back, am proud of it, anyhow hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, I had a little bit of a rough day but in the end I have great friends and an awesome mom and so much to be thankful for.My store will be crazy for the next 5 weeks so I pray I can make it through yet another Christmas working retail.I get really stressed this time of the year and the mean customers who come out this time of the year can be really hard to deal with for me anyway.

OMG last Friday my mom and I went out to eat at T.G.I Fridays and I got really sick from the food I ate from there, am never going there again, I would warn anyone around here to not go there, I am finally almost back to normal after almost a week, hoping you all have a good weekend, Love You All Lisa XOXO

Brushing off the cobwebs

Hi friends, it's been a while, thought I would update my journal and let you know I am still alive, lol.Not too much excitement going on in my life right now, soon work will be really busy and the mall will be bustling with Christmas shoppers.As most of you know I am  always on Facebook, most of my fellow bloggers are there too.

I have met many great people on Facebook, would be nice though if it worked right once in a while.Lately I have been having trouble sleeping again, could be stress- related, but it's frustrating to say the least.All this H1N1 hype makes me nervous and I really hate getting sick and this time of the year I ca'nt afford to get sick and miss too much work.Anyway thanks to those of you who have stuck by me even though I do'nt blog much anymore, I have great friends, Better get some sleep, I love you all Lisa XOXOXO

It's been a while

Hi friends, it's me Lisa, lol. Sorry I have'nt been around too much lately.I spend way too much time playing on Facebook and I am on too as well as My Space.OMG The Cold Case ending last night really had me upset, I love Lilly on Cold Case and I hope to God she is ok, I wish I could fast forward this week to next Sunday the 10'th so I can find out if Lilly is ok,  I know I always mention Jorja and post her pictures because I love her and she's my favorite actress, but I have come to love all of the characters on Cold Case especially  Scotty and Lilly.I can relate to Lilly in a big way with the abuse from her past and her bad relationship with her father, I think she is a terrific actress too .Speaking of fathers this coming week drums up a time that I do'nt like thinking about,  This coming Thursday the 7'th  it would be one year since my dad died.I look back and wish things could have been different between us , and I really do think that he wished his stepkids were his own kids instead of me and my brother.I never mentioned this before except to one good friend, but it was his stepkids who scattered his ashes a few weeks after the memorial service instead of me and my brother.Yeah that bothers me, but I am used to people shutting me out especially family members.Anyway thanks for listening to my rant, I am watching Randy Pausch giving The Last Lecture and once again seeing how amazing he was as a person,  I love you all Lisa XOXOXO

Dusting off the cobwebs

Hi friends, whew it's been a while, thought I would surprise you all with an entry, I've been doing ok, working lots and getting ready for summer.It was really hot today so I went back to my old hometown on the coast in Pacifica to visit, the beach was packed !!!!!!! I love my new apartment, I never get tired of looking at the ducks out my living room window or the cranes and pelicans during the fall.

I still love Facebook, spend way too much time on there, lol.It will be one year next month on the 7'th since my dad passed away, I ca'nt believe it, I do wish we could have had a better relationship years ago but you ca'nt really change the past I guess, just move forward , my dad's brother is moving to Vegas in a couple of months, He retired from his longtime job last week, I worry about him, I do'nt think he will like the heat much there in the summer, I am also worried about my  22 year old brother, he has really bad acid reflux , He is finally seeing a doctor tommorow, hope he does'nt have throat cancer or sonething, he is always clearing his throat, will update as soon as I hear something from him tommorow, should be hot again tommorow, Have a good week everyone, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Oh what a day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG, totally just totally sucked to say the least, When I woke up this morning I saw that my ipod clock radio had somehow broken, lovely, that was only the start.I went to work feeling like I had been hit by a car since I did'nt sleep well last night.I got to work and heard Sunday morning there was a store meeting at 7:30 a.m. until 10 :00, gee ca'nt wait,I was hoping when I came into work to be in the front end of the store because it's cooler up there , but I was stuck in the back all day where there is no air and it's extremely hot.I had to grab a fan in the store to keep myself cool, when it was finally time for my break I went to Starbucks to get a refill of my favorite iced tea lemonade but the girl behind the counter refused to give me a refill because nobody had bothered to mark my drink cup there this morning, I was really pissed considering I go there every day and give them business, defeated I went back to work thirsty hot and irritated.The day just dragged on today forever, when I finally got off work I spilled a cup of cranberry juice all over the front of me and when I was taking the bus home I accidently jabbed the woman sitting in front of me with my fingernail on the head,I have a bad habit of putting my hand on the seat in front of me,  she turned around and gave me the dirtiest look, anyone want to be me ?????? Thanks for listening, I do hope tommorow is better since I'm working tommorow and Friday too, Thank you to Lyn who sent me a cute card in the mail, it was the only time I smiled all day, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

I bid you farewell

They say all good things must come to an end and so must this blog, it just seems to be getting to be a chore and once something does'nt become fun anymore there is no point.Rest assured I will still be visiting all of your blogs and commenting, To those of you that stuck with me through the years I thank you all with all my heart and now the sun must set , Love Always Lisa XOXOXOXO

My rant and finally an update

Hi friends, yup it's me, I'm still here, thanks for those of you who were concerned as to why I have'nt updated lately, my life is pretty boring for the most part.See that beautiful little girl whose picture I posted there ? I heard tonight on the news that man who took her life 16 years ago was appealing his death sentence.Made me so mad, Polly was only 12 when she was kidnapped and bound and gagged and then strangled to death.Why should her killer Richard Allen Davis be allowed to live when he murdered an innocent child ?He is a useless piece of garbage , as it is he has lived longer then Polly did.

Polly's case touched my life in such a profound way, I remember when she first went missing hanging up flyers at my high school with her smiling face praying she was found in time.I was devastated when her body was found, Polly never deserved what happened to her.I still think of her sometimes.

Anyhow I've been ok, finally got some hours back at work this week, my store is'nt as busy as it used to be and it's sad but I am grateful to have a job still, I love my new place, it's awesome, I can see the airplanes coming in to SFO from my bedroom window, I love seeing all the water wildlife too like the ducks and the cranes, wishing you all a good week what is left of it, I Love You All Lisa XOXOXO

The True Friendship Award

Hi friends, wow another entry , lol.Anyhow wanted to pass this award along to 4 very deserving J- landers

Amy who has the journal Odd Mom Out and who is such a great mom to her  three adorable sons, she has always been a true friend to me offering me advice or just simply being there for me and I feel like she is family because we know each other so well, she truly deserves this award.

Emmi who has the journal Emmi's Snagger Tagger and the journal If Scales Could Talk , Emmi has always been such a great friend to me consoling me over the phone when I heard Jorja was leaving CSI, she always leaves me kind comments in both of my journals and always sends me pretty cards in the mail.She is deserving of this award.

Lisa Jo  is very deserving of this award too, she has always been kind and thoughtful sending me CSI articles in the mail , I have known her a while now and she is one of the most caring people I have ever known , I got her to watch CSI and Cold Case too.

Chrissie who has the journal Nay's Cache is also deserving of this award, she is such a great nay- nay to her adorable grandson Kyan, I always enjoy my late night IM chats with her and I loved talking to her on the phone too before, she is a wonderful lady and a great friend to many.

Well there you have it, my 4 nominees, I wish I could nominate all of you , but to each of you that stop by and read my journal and comment I thank you, XOXO Lisa

Saturday Thoughts

Hi friends, thought I'd better give you all a little update, I have been getting ready for my move this coming week and still feel really lame I gave you all my wrong apt number , for those of you that did'nt get a heads up I gave my new address to my new apt number is # 305 instead of # 303 , please make a note  , anyhow I am really glad I am moving from here because the people below me have become absolute nightmares, every night when I turn over in bed they are knocking on my wall and in the last 2 weeks they have filed two noise complaints against me, total bs !!!!!!!!! Another thing I do'nt get is that they have lived below me since 07 and are saying they have just noticed noise in the last 3 weeks , WTF ????????? I am not noisy at all, but I sure hope whoever moves in here next is , I hope it's a young college kid that likes to blast thier stereo into the wee hours of the night.

Anyhow work has been kind of quiet lately, I will be back Monday and hopefully meet our new manager .I guess at Christmas he was at our store helping out setting displays up and what not.Robin said he was a sweetheart so I was happy to hear that.I hope you all have a great Sunday, I'll try and do one more entry on here before I move, I Love You All Lisa XOXOXO

Hi friends, it me checking in :)

Hi friends, thank you to Emmi for the beautiful tag, hope you all have been ok, I'm still here preparing for my move in two weeks, so our new manager starts this coming Tuesday, thank God because Diane just absolutely drove me and everyone else at work nuts, I'm working this coming Sunday, but I'm not really into football that much so I do'nt care, lol.

A huge thanks to Lisa Jo for the snail mail that came today, I love getting mail, thanks so much Lisa, you totally made my day :) I ca'nt believe tommorow is Friday yet again, wishing you all a good one and a great weekend too, I Love You All Lisa XOXO

Doing a Happy Dance !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi friends, hope you all had a great weekend, I got some wonderful news last night, a co -worker of mine called me and told me our current manager Diane is leaving after this week, all I can say is " Thank God " I never liked her and although I never really blogged much about her on here she made me miserable.I never felt that she liked me and she disrespected me several times putting me down to work on days I requested off even threatening to replace me one time over the phone so all I have to say is "So long bitch and do'nt let the door hit ya on the way out "

Anyhow things are going ok regarding my move, I will be here in this place for about three more weeks and then next month on Valentine's Day I'll be all settled in my new digs, I hope I gave you all my new address, if not please email me and I'll give it to you.I must say I am loving Facebook, it's quickly become my favorite website and I try to keep quiet on there about work issues because some of my co - workers are on my friend's list including one of my asst managers, wishing you all a wonderful upcoming week, I love you all Lisa XOXOXOXO

Boy can I relate !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi friends, I have not been very good about updating here lately, I must say my new addiction is Facebook, worse then candy or fast food that website I'm telling ya, lol.Anyhow I was reading the new issue of US magazine earlier about how Jennifer Love Hewitt called off her wedding and part of it was because of body insecurities, Usually I look of celebs and think they have it all, beauty, wealth, a great lifestyle , but reading the article about Jennifer made me stop and think, I look at her and see a beautiful woman, but man who would think that she was insecure with herself ? I would'nt, I admit I eat to mask emotional issues and food can be a great comfort right ? It ca'nt call you names or make you feel bad, it's always there.

When I was growing up I was always made fun of by my father and it made me grow up to be very insecure and unsure of myself, I feel at times like I am never good enough or pretty enough and it sucks.I'll share a secret with you all, after my dad passed away it was his stepkids that went and scattered his ashes, not me and my brother.I feel again like I was'nt good enough to  be there for that, but who knows ? Maybe his last wishes were for them to scatter his ashes, I'll never know I guess, I was in Sequoia National Park the day he died, but seriously I never really did feel like he ever loved me, sure we made up before he passed away and everything , but that uncomfortable tension still lingered in the air, I read years ago that Jennifer Love Hewitt's dad walked out of her life years ago too, I feel for her knowing that , I really am touched when I read about fathers who are always there for thier kids and would do anything for them, sometimes I wish I could have known what that was like, I am a work in progress , but I try to be the best person I can be and love others without judgement and accept them for who they are, thanks for listening to my rant, I love you all Lisa XOXOXO

Is it just me ???????

Hi friends, thought it was a good opportunity to use this tag, a huge thank you to Sugar !!!!!! Did any of you hear this weekend about the disturbing story of an elderly couple that fell off of a Carnival cruise ship ? It is thought that they both commited suicide because thier cabin room was locked from the inside, does'nt it seem like there have been way too many accidents on cruise ships lately ?
What the hell is going on anyway ??????? Not too long ago a woman jumped from a cruise ship and then two days later a cruise ship employee fell overboard, Anyhow I am excited tommorow Obama will be sworn in, I think he will make a great president and I look forward to having him in office, Wishing you all a great Tuesday, I love you all Lisa XOXO

My new favorite Grissom and Sara picture !!!!!!!!!!

As a fan fiction writer I could'nt have written them both a better ending, I am glad I did'nt have to, my favorite TV couple are finally happy !!!!! Makes my little heart burst with joy !!!!!!!

Finally an update !!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi friends, sorry it 's been a while since my last update, I've been busy packing stuff up here getting ready for my move.I got good news yesterday when I went to work, my store will not be one of the 26 stores that will be closing, thank God !!!!!!

Now all you CSI fans, tommorow is the night, I am sad that Grissom will be leaving the show, it will never be the same without him, I am hoping that Sara is supposed to be on tommorow's show that there is a happy ending in store for my favorite couple.Please no more sad endings and tension between Grissom and Sara, let them both be together because they deserve to be happy.I hope the producers give me the ending I want for them and for all of us too who love Grissom and Sara.I will miss seeing Jorja after tommorow's show, but I hope she finds work for another show because she is an amazing actress , she means so much to me, I hope someday to meet Jorja and give her a huge hug and tell her how much she means to me.I was pissed off to hear that Bush will be giving a speech tommorow night, I hope it does'nt screw up CSI's time slot and for those of you who are recording the show tommorow night, please do'nt forget to set up your VCR's for like 70 minutes instead of the usual 60 minutes, I have my new address so for those of you that would like it please email me at and I'll gladly give it to you.My first day in my new place will be Valentine's Day, sweet deal, lol.Hope you all are doing well, I Love You All Lisa XOXOXO

Well looks like the move is official, lol

  Hi friends, it's been a tiring day,  but it's official, I'll be moving to another remodeled unit here on Feb 14'th, lol.I viewed the new place tonight, it was really nice, freshly remodeled kitchen, pretty new carpeting, newly remodeled bathrooms, and best of all I wo'nt have to live around the remodel either like my next door neighbors did, That is never easy and a total pain in the ass.

When I got the mail today there was a very nice picture of Billy Petersen on the cover of this Friday's TV Guide, however the headline " Goodbye Grissom" made me sad, I did also read tonight on one of Jorja's fansites when the final CSI airs where Grissom leaves to be sure and set up your VCR's a few minutes beyond the hour because it said the ending is not to be missed, well I know for a fact I'll be watching next Thursday with wet eyes, It will be a sad night for me, Wishing you all a good Thursday tommorow, I Love You All Lisa XOXO
