My Friend

I just got back from visiting one of my best friends in the world. She's not doing well and it scares the heck out of me. She was diagnosed with breast cancer the year before my mom. In fact, she was the one who helped me survive Mom's original diagnosis by giving me advice on what to do next and what to expect at the doctor visits and treatments. She's a selfless person who has always given and given of herself and now, she's the one who needs the help and yet, there's nothing I can do to make it better. Of course, she has my prayers and I'd drive back to WV in a heartbeat if she said she needed me back there. But other than just BEING THERE, I cannot take away the pain or assure her that everything will be alright. I tell her it will, but will it? I don't know. I cannot imagine her being taken from us anytime soon. I know that I'm suppose to pray for God's Will but I also find myself pleading with God not to take her from us. We need her, her family needs her, her precious children need her... I need her.

Get Fit and Flirty in 2010

Well, 2010 is here and we've all been talking about our New Year's Resolutions and we know that getting fit and losing weight seems to always be on everyone's lists. So I just thought I'd throw a fitness/weight loss plan out there for you....


With dvd's entitled "Booty Beat", "Just Teasing", and "Chair Dancing", you know this is right up your alley! And yes, for those, tigers out there who are willing to step it up in the name of fitness, there's even "The Pole Collection" videos. Okay, hold on, girls, because you can also purchase your own Flirty Girl "fitness" pole. (And for the record, it is removable, you know, for when those in-laws visit!)
Now, I will not admit to having these in my collection, but if you suddenly notice me looking firmer and trimmer, well, you can go with your own assumptions.

And for those of you always wanting more (as if this isn't enough!), this program could even lead to a new career! ; )

For those of you trying to google this... I'll save you the time:

The Great Snow of 2010

Okay, so it was actually just a little dusting, but you know us southerners. It was definitely enough for some good sledding which my boys took full advantage of using the neighbors steep driveway and the hill on the golf course. Well, except for Ripken, who opened the door and stated "it cold out there!" and promptly slammed the door and stayed inside!
