Starting Over

I am ready to leave the past behind and take with me the lessons I have learned along the way. I am leaving the handbasket and starting a new blog called "I am Me". It is not very structured, organized, decked out, but it is what it is and a part of me. Just as in life, I will figure things out as I go.
I hope to see you along the way.

All things come to an end

Well I see my little game did not go over too well. That just tells me that it is time for me to stop blogging.
It was fun while it lasted, but all good things come to an end sometime and that time is now.
Thanks for all the comments and insite, I appreciate it all and definately will walk away a better person.

Cherish every day for you may not get another to cherish.

Movie Quote Game

Ok, I figured since I will be away from posting for a few days again, I would try something out that worked really well for a friend of mine when he posted on a regular basis. You can check out what he has been doing at

The point of this game is to quote a movie and use the next number in sequence. For example..."ONE may smile and smile and be a villain" (JFK). Then the next comment would have the #2 (two) in it such as "Are you TWO having a killer time?" (Napoleon Dynamite). Write the quote and name the movie then try and keep it going. The person with the most posts wins. Now be careful, cause if someone else is entering a quote at the same time, and beats you, you will be disqualified. And there is one big rule...YOU CANNOT POST 2 COMMENTS IN A ROW!

If you have played this before, try to come up with new quotes and not go back to previous know who you are.

Let's say we play till Tuesday...have fun!!

Gratitude and a whole lot more

Well it is Wednesday and I missed gratitude Tuesday imagine that. It was a long but wonderful weekend. We did well at the tournament and had a great time with all of our friends. It is one of those things that you are glad it is over and you can rest but you hate to see it end becuase it is not too often that you have that many friends in one place.

I am busy at work trying to get things done so that I can go to another tournament this weekend and to get ready for my transition into my new job, so the posts are going to be few and far between for awhile but I will try to comment as much as possible.

Some of the "g" words that I am greatful for:

Grass - Fresh cut grass on a warm summers day, lying there watching the world go by.

Gram - Even though she is not with us any more I will always be greatful for all that she did for me and the love she shared.

Gas - Fuel that is, even though the price is high, we still have the ability to drive our cars, fly our planes and heat our homes.

Gum - what is not to love about gum, I love the smell, the taste, and blowing bubbles

Gratitude - For being able to express my gratitude towards others

Greeting Cards - For that little surprise waiting in the mailbox

The list is short but I am greatful today and everyday.

Gone darting

It is a dart weekend and even though the tournament is close to home, we will stay the weekend and have some fun. This is by far one of my favorite tournaments. I have always done well here and hope that will ring true this year and I love the people. This is one of the tournaments that I know the most people at, mostly becuase I see them every weekend or they live close enough that I see them in between tournaments. There are quite a few people that I am excited to see and hang out with this weekend. I know it seems more like a social event than a tournament, but when it comes down to it, the competitiveness in all of us will shine.

So today is my last day of work for the week and I will soon be heading home to get ready to leave tomorrow. Now if I told you how close the tournament is and what all I am taking you would think that I am nuts, but you can never be too prepared for these things.

This is the first year that I will be sharing a room with friends and I can't wait as we always have a great time. I just have to remember to keep the nuts away from.....well you know who you are, and no ice by the suit cases or drinks on the bed.

So I am off, have a great weekend all.

Much about nothing

Well I had to finally switch over to the new blogger and it is not so bad, but I am having a bit of trouble posting comments to other blogs. No matter how is try to sign in, to post my comment, it tells me my pass word is wrong. So if I have not commented for a while you know why.

It was a pretty good weekend, spent all day Friday with my son doing various things, played darts Friday night and have a good time and took 4th place, laid on the couch all day Saturday and did those days, played darts Saturday night, did not win anything but had a great time seeing all that were there, did nothing Sunday but laundry and some reading.
This coming weekend is a dart tournament here in PA, it is only about 20 minutes or so from the house but it is a nice little get away weekend as I always stay. The tournament used to be states but not for quite a few years, it is starting to get big again so I think they may make it states again if they have not already. This is one of my favorite tournaments as there are so many people there and I know a lot of them. I am sure a good time will be had by all.

This morning when I can in, I had originally planned on a Valentines Day post and how much that I hate it and that everyone should let their loved ones know how special they are all of the time and not just on this one day, but I decided against it as I thought that maybe I felt so badly about it this year more so than any other year since I have no one to tell me that I am special not do I feel special. And that is all I have to say about that.

It is funny, last week we were at below zero temps and it was freezing in here, now that we are in the 20's it seems like the heat has decided to work and it is a hot house in here, there is never any happy medium with the tempatures at work. Now we are preparing for snow and freezing rain...just what I wanted. I really need to consider moving to a warmer climate where it does not snow, then again with the freaky weather these days, is anywhere safe?

For Christmas I bought my son a MP3 player, but my computer was not up to date to download WMP 11 so I ordered the XP service pack 2 to install. When I got it and tried installing it the first time I got an error stating that it would not load one of the files....needless to say I gave up. Yesterday I sat down again and everything went smoothly and I loaded the MP3 player with a bunch of songs he wanted. I was very excited about this accomplishment, more so than he was about having his MP3 player that has been collecting dust since Dec 25th. Now I really want one or maybe even an ipod, so I think I will sometime this month.

Well it seems that I have rambled on long enough, got to get ready for Gratitude Tuesday. Have a wonderful evening.
