sorry i have been M.I.A.

but I have been in my own world lately.  Today is a very sad day for me sistahs.  This is one  thing I don’t like when I am in the ‘public eye’.  I am a very ‘to myself’ person when it comes to dealing with personal issues (even though it may not seem it at times) .. but I think one of the benefits of being in the ‘public eye’ is that it helps me cope with certain things.  We picked up bella over the weekend and she was just scrumptious.  TRULY scrumptious.  My daughter, Jayden, started having reactions to her.. in terms of her health.. although she is deemed to be completely hypoallergenic, I could not risk the health of my little one.. so after falling in love HARD.  and I mean REALLY HARD, Ryan and I made the decision to send her back to her mommy and daddy where she will be happier.  We are truly devastated about this.  My children don’t know yet but I just could not risk anything and the longer I would have kept her, the more traumatized we all would have felt.  Does this even make sense?  I feel like a rotten person.. I feel horrible.  I am very sad today.  I promise in the next coupla days, I will hopefully feel better about all of this (I am not thinking so) but I just had to share since all my sistahs have been emailing me about what the outcome of Bella was. 

In comemoration (sp?) of Bella, I would like to devote this stamp to her!

Enjoy sistahs

mwah! from a very sad sistah

so these are the plans

tomorrow morning, waking up supah early and hub and i are driving 4 FREAKIN’ hours to pick up Bella.  Yes, she is finally ready to come home (my darling new little oochy coochy teeny weeny loo loo laa laa Havanese puppy).  Actually we are going to stay the night and on Saturday will be picking her up and driving her back home to the kidlets who will drive her absolutely mental.  No no I would NEVAH allow that.  Bella who will grow to be 10 pounds max will be my mascot at the store.. ya know, a guard dog..LOL.  I can’t wait to show you pictures!!

So that will be the next coupla days.. will keep da sistahs posted. please wish me luck, oh and wish Ryan luck as HE will be the one doing NIGHT DOOTIE (lol-duty.. just wanted to spell it that way,k?)

Mwah to da sistahs who may or may not be cleaning up poopies and peepees

OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG

It is now 6:34pm.  I am sitting in my office.  I am looking at my 18 walls.  I am looking at the boxes on my floor.  But MOST IMPORTANTLY, I am looking at a LIVE computer screen THAT WORKS!!! SISTAHHHHHSSSSS MWAHHHHHHH, I LOOOVEEEY YOUUUUU AND MISSSSSY YOU……..   OH how I have wanted to say that for the past week.

Phew! I feel so much better now.

So a little bit about this past week.  IT WAS HELL.  I worked so hard as did Ryan and everyone around me.  I have moved boxes, unpacked, put up racking etc.. but  I am INNN.  I thank you so much for everyone who wrote me and supported me through this.  It’s a great thing, don’t get me wrong.. but really was not prepared for the intensity of the work involved.

So this is why I couldn’t BLOG.  I am so embarassed to admit this but hey.. there is never a “filter” here so why should I start now? LOL.  First of all, I got a new laptop that for some reason, blew my router and didn’t have internet at home for eons.  THEN I had to order another one and it blew again.  Then I wanted to blog so badly BUT… I didn’t have my password to get in! ( how embarassing).. I only had it as a bookmark on THIS computer in my office and I didn’t HAVE internet at my office.. BLECH.  The internet providers promised to come on Tuesday and never showed up.. I got my computer guys to do some handiwork and get things going. SOOOO here I am… BACK IN CYBERFLESH.  and LOOOOVING IT.

Ok, I am too excited to type.  Gotta go tap dance on my new hardwood (fake) floor.
Mwah to da patient sistahs who I missed so
