I am the MOM and I was here FIRST!

My photo
I am a 44 year old mother of three children and grandmother of one. I am divorced from my children's father whom I share joint physical custody of our youngest two children with. I have been married to my fabulous husband for over 9 near-perfect years. I LOVE this man! He is a wonderful generous, affectionate, tolerant and all forgiving husband. He is also a terrific step-dad/male role model to my kids and an even better grand father to our two year old grand daughter. My oldest daughter attends college to obtain her nursing degree. She has been on her own for over three years now (no longer part of a shared custody arrangement like her brother & sister) My middle daughter is in high school and plays on the freshmen volleyball & soccer teams. She's really creative and talented. My son is in middle school and plays hockey and lacrosse. He is a sweet sensitive boy who still says "I love you Mom" frequently. I work part time running an online ebay store. I have terrific and supportive relationships with my family, friends and of course my kids. I am extremely close to my sister, my Mom and my sister-in-laws. They are my best friends.

Does it really need to become a law?

It looks like a local nearby city is going to pass a law against texting while driving. HUH? Do people really text while their driving? Who does that? A law needs to be passed to punish and ticket people who get caught doing this?? UNREAL!

As if driving didn't require my full attention to the road while I am forced to "watch out" for (stupid) drivers yacking on their cell phones. It's inconceivable that I am also on the road with an even more ignorant breed of people who are actually trying to type in letters on a little key pad while stepping on the gas of a 2000 pound vehicle.

At some time or another... my children, husband, granddaughter and/or parents are in my car with me. There is nothing that I need to "type/say" more important than protecting the people that I love most in this world. It is absolutely ARROGANT AND IGNORANT that someone honestly believes that they are capable of driving safely while texting.


Great Weekend

My birthday is tomorrow.

Wow... I'll be 44. Where did the time go?

My husband took me downtown to a casino and out to eat to celebrate. We had sooooooo much fun together. We walked out of the casino $300.00 richer than when we walked in. Then we went to a great restaurant with fabulous greek food. We had saganaki, lemon rice soup and gyro's. Yum! Then we came home and settled in for the night with a couple of good movies. I'm sure I've mentioned before how much I love and adore my husband. We'll celebrate 9 years of marriage together this year and my love for him grows stronger every day. He is a perfect match to me and so satisfying to be in the company of.

Yesterday was spent reading the paper, listening to music and just relaxing together. My husband and I did not want the weekend to end nor did we want to get out of bed this morning. But it's Monday. We both have work to do and it's back to the routine of the week.

I'm off to make dinner for my wonderful husband. I get butterflies still... knowing he'll be walking in the door soon....
