A place for me to share my thoughts and bare my heart: Not for the easily offended.

         Snow covered the world around me as though God himself had decided to his erase his own creation. I felt a weight in my heart, a deep sadness. I sighed into the chilly December morning, my breath like smoke as it clung to the air before me. The world felt blank, empty.

         As the snow began to melt and colors peeked from below the thick blanket of white, I began to feel lighter. I had been given a sign.

         I knew, staring at the stark whiteness of snow that clung to the ground, that this was Mother Nature's way of cleansing herself, of allowing herself a fresh, new start. It was a metaphor for my own life, Mother Nature in infinite wisdom had given the maternal advice that I needed. It was time for me, too, to start anew.

         With a clean, blank slate, I smiled. Life was about to begin...

         December 23, 2009. The above is how I feel right now and what I've experienced over the last few days. This is my new beginning and this blog, though old, will follow me through this journey as I rebuild my life from this clean slate.

Yup. Sick of getting the "Update Your Blog" e-mails. LOL

Check out my other blog: http://stephaniegracetats.blogspot.com *Wink*

Eventually, I'll get back into this one ...maybe. *Laugh*

So, my e-mail told me I should update my blog. I find it semi-weird as I updated my other blog just a few days ago. *Laugh* I guess my tatting blog doesn't count. {e:pout}

Things are looking like they're going to get better. Daddy is healing fine (thought they do have him wearing some funky machine thing around his neck for four hours each day... some machine that apparently cannot come in contact with a computer because it will mess up the hard drive and should not be near pace makers because it will effect those too --I don't care what the woman said the other day, I still say he shouldn't use the microwave while wearing it! LOL).

My heart is still sore from Jersey's passing, but I ordered books (one for me; one for Daddy) from SnapFish of all of our pets and I take comfort in the hope that they're all playing together in that big ol' field in the sky. (Where I'm sure my Yorkie-Maltese mix, BeBe, is playing Queen Bitch as she did on Earth....).

Mommy's going for knee surgery which will hopefully go well since my mom tends to have complications with everything. *Rolleyes*

So, holding true to my theory, life started getting better once football started... and as good as things have been going since then, I'm pretty sure when the actual season starts, we'll hit the lottery! *Laugh* Really... that good. I won TWO giveaways from a giveaway blog, Mom and Sis took Mom and Dad's "tenant" away today, our finances suck still, but we now should be able to make it through to the end of January without too much strain --I mean, we can keep the lights and food. LOL, I befriended a woman who hand dyes threads and sells them VERY cheap for HDTs and ordered about 1800 yards from her, LOL, I saved $66 on a SnapFish order which resulted in paying less than $11 for two books (8x11"; 20 pages; around 95 photographs), 60-something prints, an 8x10 print, and an 8x10 collage(!), I finally mailed two exchanges that came in before everything went haywire on me, I realized that back-to-school sales and Labor Day sales mean cheap prices for my birthday, and I started watching a friend's kid to bring in some cash....

Okay, that last one.... GRRR!!! ARGH! UGH!!!! Still have not seen said money and I'm pretty sure I'll be taking the loss and calling it an end to the friendship. This happens every time...

The only other "Grr" I have is that I fell asleep with my finest tatting needle stuck in my blanket and didn't know it... *Blush* I woke up to a poke (From the eye end, but, still.... Eek!), thought I was imagining things, moved the same away again and had to get up at that point because I knew it was real. It was so deeply embedded in the blanket that I had to pull the string attached to it to get it out... It's bent all sorts of ways since then! *Cry* My poor needle! Thank God my birthday is coming and I'll be able to order more needles and threads!

While speaking of my birthday.... I got a WONDERFUL gift today!!!!! I'm not sure if I'm supposed to publicize the incredible act of kindness since it was from a WDC member, but I just want to say THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!! The UPS man must've thought I was nuts when I saw a box in his hands and said, "what now?" LOL. (Last time I said, "Oh.. that's what it is." He said, "Yeah, something frozen." That was just a few days ago. Me and this man are getting good with our two-second conversations. LOL). I thought it had to be a mistake... but, NO! It was a wonderful gift that I'm THRILLED and HONORED to have received! THANK YOU!! :-*

Okay, okay, enough rambling from me!

(There, e-mail, I updated!) *Pthb*

I think I *finally* figured out why I haven't been on WDC much lately... Too few items that I enjoy. Really, I'm as honest as I can be, but I don't think anyone really wants honesty. Some of the things that I've read... well, let's just say, a lot of people would be crying if I was fully honest with them. Some things just cannot be said nicely and I'm a cunt. I feel like I have to change myself so that no one gets their feelings hurt when, offline, I rarely give thought to others' feelings and refuse to lie just to make someone feel good.

It's starting to feel like I'm sacrificing my ideals and beliefs for this website. No, not for this website, but for its members and for the groups of which I am a member.

By the way, I think that the affiliation tool is a horrible thing --too many groups now only care about the promotion of having sig and/or affiliation instead of quality of review. *Sick*

I was in such a good mood before I signed into WDC today... Perhaps I should just stick to reading books?

Sorry... I needed to get that out... Now, back to reviewing...

I just got the message: I need to grow up and stop this writing nonsense. I have known it all along... I understand it now, Thank you, WDC!

Fried beef and pork cubes
all in a line,
to be stewed with onions, peppers,
and potatoes --Goulasch: Divine!
--But what is this?
Fried rice in the mix!
This recipe calls
for five ingredients, not six!
Oh dear! Oh dear!
Here comes Mother-in-law!
Mrs. Schneider will be angry for sure...
But, really, it's not my flaw!
Rice looks like meal worms
and so I stay away
and did not realize
that Hubby ordered fired rice anyway!

Wonderland Ranch Thoughts on 06/26/09

Rest your head in comfort tonight,
know that God has made this world right.
For though this world is not perfect,
Evil now has once less aspect...

An entertainer born and bred,
but never quite right in the head,
bought his innocents innocence with money,
But, that man is dead now, Honey!

Innocent babe, sleep sound tonight,
the world is now closer to "right";
Your dreams to someday be a star,
are no longer so very far.

A pedophile passed away,
--his name I cannot even say--
sleep tight tonight my little star,
That ol' monster, in Hell, will char!
         -Stephanie Grace

Now, maybe we can mourn for Ed McMahon and Farrah Fawcett --who truly deserve it!
