I am amazed by the word “friend”.. It means so many different things to so many different people, but to me, the most important thing about the word friend is be one…. To have a friend you need to be a friend.

I am totally and utterly amazed by the friendships you make on the internet without even knowing the person. This really shouldn’t come as a surprise to me, yet it does.. The reason I say that is that I met my first husband that way. Not on the internet, but through writing letters. I was just out of high school and 17, working at a real job (being a waitress in a pizza parlor really didn’t count). So, I was working and was seeing someone that I went to school with, who happened to be a cop. Long story short we broke up and this woman I worked with wanted me to write to her son who was in the Marines. Don’t forget, we are talking about the Viet Nam era…. I said I wouldn’t know what to say and she said she would have him write first. As so it began. Letters from Okinawa, cards, and much much more. No internet then. Just letters. No phone cards, just letters and cards. He would draw me maps from his parents home to mine and the underlying current was marriage. We already said the “L” word to each other. Again, to make a long story short (because he really isn’t worth my time to think about) he came home Christmas Eve day in 1971, we were engaged in March and we were married in August of 1972. We felt like we knew each other so well. Oh….did I leave out that I knew his entire family, had been to their home, and still hadn’t met him…. His mom loved me, but that sure changed after a while… HA HA…As much as I never disrespected her to her face, the feeling was mutual…She was the typical mother in law from hell, and his whole family turned out that way too…well almost all, but that’s for another time….. So like I said you really do grow close to someone you have never met. That brings me back to the topic of friend because I have met some wonderful “friends” on here. Both from recipe groups, Care2, causes, cancer support groups, and the ever present face book. Never did My Space. I couldn’t remember my password. HA HA….

You don’t need to be in the same place, the same part of the world even. You just need to be in the same place in your heart….. That’s what it all boils down to. Friends of the heart… And so, to all my friends I want to say thank you for allowing me be part of your world. And to my late hubby Don, I want to say I love you still with all my heart and soul. You were my by far my bestest friend in the world.

January 10, 2011

Well, here it is Monday again. Not that one day is different than the other. When you don't work, they are all the same..

It is nasty out there. On the warm side but rained and lots of wind along with thunder that scared the holy bejolies out of my baby girl. She just shakes so bad, and there is nothing I can do that calms her down. You know if she doesn't want a treat there is something wrong. HA HA.

Just been very melancholy today. Maybe because I still don't feel good, or because I am thinking more about the biopsies that I am having done, but I really miss my hubby. I do know that he is an angel looking over me. I believe that with all my heart and soul.

Guess it will be left over pizza for supper tonight. I still have one piece left and I'm not very hunger, but I need to take my medicines, it is.

I have no idea what the post office does with my mail, especially postcards. They are always losing them. I am about ready to roll some heads over this. And it's not just postcards. It's other mail that I send too. Postage is expensive and so is my time for the crafts I make and send.

Well, guess that's it for now. At least I remembered to get back on here.

I have taken so many pictures of my baby girl, Miss Beulah Mae, that I will have to share them from time to time. So here is one of her adorable self.

Well, here I am trying to do this again. I am bound and determined to at least give it another shot. It may last an hour, a day, a week, or a lifetime. Who knows. What I do know if that I am at least trying, and this is my stepping stone.

I have had a rough few years, no doubt about that, but that is not an excuse to let it continue. This year started out with me sick, and I still am, but you know what...That doesn't matter. I am making it a good year. At least that is what my thinking is today anyway.. ha ha..

I didn't feel like cooking so I decided to make something simple. Didn't have any bread, and so I knew I had a can of Bush's baked beans, and some Hebrew National Hot Dogs, so beanie weanies to the the rescue. It really hit the spot...


Hot Dogs
Can of Baked Beans
Brown Sugar

Heat hot dogs in the microwave for a minute or so. Make sure you score them so they don't get big and fat.
Heat up the baked beans in a seperate bowl. Add as much brown sugar and mustard as you like. I used about 2 tablespoons of mustard and the same of the brown sugar.

Mix them all together and your on your way to sitting down to eat.
