I found another furniture site you might like too

I have been looking at all sorts of furniture web sites and have found one that you just might like too.  They have modern furniture that is absolutely gorgeous!  I was amazed at some of the pieces they have on their site.  Beautiful furniture really makes a house a home and if you like modern furniture, this will definitely make you house feel more homey!

Your bedroom should feel more like a sanctuary from the hard cruel world and with their bedroom furniture, you’re almost certain to find just the right style for you.  I like for my bedroom to be not only comfortable but beautiful too.  That is what makes my bedroom my sanctuary and I bet your the same way.  How can you get a good nights sleep in a ugly bedroom?  I sure couldn’t.

Well here’s the cure for the ‘ugly bedroom’ for sure.  Just take a look at some of the platform beds they have to offer and you’ll see the cure.  Absolutely beautiful beds that I can see myself curled up in the middle of with a cup of coffee and a good book.  I’m so glad I decided to shop around a little longer before I decided to buy.

I am so tired of hearing about Nadia

Octomom is getting on my nerves.  You can’t go anywhere without seeing or hearing something new about her.  She is constantly on TV, on the computer, on just about everything here and there.  I’m sorry but I don’t feel the least bit sorry for this ‘unusual’ woman.  Why in the world would the mother of 6 children want 6 more implanted and then end up giving birth to a litter of eight babies instead of donating the embryos to other couples that can’t have children?  That would have been the sensible thing to do.

While we’re on that subject (sensible that is), it seems that she has now fired all of the nannies that are supposed to help her with her babies.  Good move!!!  Let’s see her take care of the 10 she has at home now.  The department of Social Services will definitely be investigating now because no one can take care of the 4 of the octuplets that she has home now and the other 6 at one time.  She fired them because she said they were spying on her.  There’s something wrong with this picture!!!

I need help!

There is nothing worse than having a totally unorganized house.  I hate it.  My house has gotten so disorganized that I can’t hardly find anything when I need it.  My closets, well they are all disaster areas.  I can’t find my clothes that I know are supposed to be in there but are hidden in the clutter.  I need help!  Well I found exactly what I needed and it’s new york custom closets.  They custom build what ever it is that you need to totally organize your closet and it’s built the way you want it.  Not a kit like you can get most anywhere that doesn’t even fit and takes a scientist to be able to put the darn thing together.

They not only specialize in custom closets but they are professional organizers too.  They will even custom build kitchen cabinets that are designed to be organized so everything has a place and you can actually find what is in your cabinets almost at a glance.  I love that.  They will design custom storage for your garage to your specifications and just about any other space you need to be organized.  My pantry is now even organized instead of just having everything shoved in it.  The prices are surprisingly affordable too.

I hear the birds singing

The birds are everywhere again and singing their wonderful springtime songs.  I love sitting at my window watching all of the different types of birds eating out of my bird feeders.  It’s amazing just how many different types of birds come to share a meal.  You have to watch the darn squirrels too or they will figure out a way to climb up my pole and shake all of the food out for themselves.  I have a squirrel feeder on a tree.  It has a screw on it that you take a corn cob and screw down on it for them to eat but they want the bird food too.  Oh well, such is life and do love to see all of the springtime critters out my window.

What a phenomenal woman

In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday…Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older. And, there on television, she said it was ‘exciting.’

Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every day…like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist first. The audience laughed so hard, they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!

Maya Angelou said this:

‘I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow only if you want it to be.’

‘I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things:weather, respect and lost luggage.’

‘I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. It is then you realize that no one can ever love and care for you more than they do. And that no one can ever replace them. I wish they were with me now!

‘I’ve learned that making a ‘living’ is not the same thing as ‘making a life.”

‘I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. So don’t make the same mistakes again.’

‘I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back.’

‘I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.’

‘I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.’

‘I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.’

‘I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.’

‘I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel , especially your loved ones.’

Hard work pays off

It used to be that people came to our country in search of the American dream.  We have long been known as the land of opportunity and I believe we still are as long as you are willing to work hard.  It’s no wonder so many come from other countries like Mexico in search of a better life.  I can’t blame them one bit since my ancestors did the same thing and I’m glad they did because I know I wouldn’t have the chances I do now if they hadn’t.

Laura Diaz is one of the people who’s family came here hoping to make a better life for their family.  Well this lady has done her family and herself proud.  She worked hard and has become one of the top influential Hispanic News Anchors in the country.  She is an amazing young woman.  She has also won several awards. She is an eight-time Emmy Award winner. That is an amazing accomplishment in itself. She won an Emmy in 2006 for Individual Achievement in Feature Reporting. She won back-to-back Golden Mike Awards in 2005 and 2006 for best feature reporting. She earned her a national Imagen Award in 2006 for the first in depth television interview with incoming Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.

In 2003, Ms. Diaz received the L.A. Press Club’s highest honor, the “Joseph M. Quinn Award” for journalistic excellence and distinction. Her story about Billy Queen, a federal agent who went undercover to bust up a murderous motorcycle gang, was awarded an Emmy and a Golden Mike. She also confronted an angry gang member for a story on “Emotional Gangs,” a new kind of street gang that spreads hate between African Americans and Latinos in Los Angeles.  So not only does this woman have guts when it comes to getting a story, she has the determination to reach for excellence and accomplish it.

Spring is almost here

With spring around the corner, I’m hot and heavy into ‘spring cleaning mode’ if you know what I mean.  I am so sick of the clutter that seems to accumulate every winter.  Why is that?  Is it in our nature to gather stuff for the long winter like animals do?  Maybe but I hate clutter and my house is over cluttered now and I’m doing something about it.

I’m not quite sure how but all of a sudden I have shoes everywhere.  I have been looking for shoe racks to help me keep my shoes organized so I can find both of the same shoe at the same time instead of having to dig like I have lately.    I found some great ones online.  Another thing that has really helped me with all of the clutter is bed risers.  My mother has used  these for years.  Under the bed is a great place to store your winter clothes that you won’t be wearing anymore until next year that is.

But you will never guess what I have found to be one of the best for hiding clutter.  Room dividers.  Imagine that.  You can take a room divider and put it in a corner to hide what ever you don’t want seen and it looks like you have dressed your room up instead of just hid something.

Mrs. Madoff

Okay, Bernard has been charged and sent to prison which was not quite enough punishment if you ask me.  But now Mrs. Madoff is trying to say that the millions she has are hers and did not come from her husband cheating all of those people.  Okay then just where did she work or from whom did she inherit this money from???

They need to take everything both of them had, sell every bit of it and compensate all of the people that Bernard cheated out of their hard earned money.  He didn’t earn a dime of it and from what I can see, his wife didn’t either but maybe I’m not seeing the whole picture here.  I doubt it because she may be just his wife and somewhat innocent in the whole ordeal but I’m sorry, she needs to be put out of the penthouse and into a small house she could afford to keep up herself on ‘her income’ she makes honestly like the people that had to return to work when they found out they had squat thanks to Bernard Madoff but that’s my opinion!!!!

Time for an adventure!

I have some vacation time saved up and really need a break.  I have saved all year for an adventure and have finally decided where I’m going to take that adventure.   I have decided to go to Universal Studios Orlando because it has been years since I was last there and I want to go to Mardi Gras there.   I have always wanted to go to New Orleans for Mardi Gras but this will be just as good if not even better.  I can’t wait either.  They have some really great prices this time of year too so that will save me a bundle there.

The thing I’m looking the most forward to is all of the costumes.  You get to be anyone you want during Mardi Gras.  The beautiful costumes, the masks, and the wonderful food.  I think I just gained 10 pounds thinking about it too.  But hopefully I’ll walk most of it off going around to see everything.  We can only hope anyway.   From what I have seen of the wonderful handmade masks, I can’t wait to pick out one for myself.  I have always thought I was born in the wrong time.  I should have been born back when Gone with the Wind was made.  I love those beautiful long dresses and can’t wait to wear one for Mardi Gras.

I wonder how I’m going to be able to ride the roller coaster with one of those on though?   I guess I could dress up in clothes like that for the Mardi Gras.  I need to find out more about it I guess.  But one things for sure, I love roller coasters and the bigger and faster, the better.  They have a huge one that turns you upside down and absolutely flies.  I can’t wait.  Now all I have to do is pack and make my reservations and I’m off!!!  I’ll let you know how much fun I had.

Ever had one of ‘those’ days?

This morning, everything seemed just fine and then all of a sudden, it turned into one of ‘those’ days.  You know what ‘those’ days are, don’t you?  They’re the kind of day that just out of no where seems a bit sad, or like somethings missing maybe.  I don’t know how to explain it.

I guess one way is that all of a sudden I feel alone in an office full of people.  How crazy is that?  I can’t put my finger on any one thing that might have brought it on either.  If I could, then maybe I could make it go away.  Hopefully it’ll go away on it’s on!!!!
