One Day More

Hey guys!

If you are a Les Mis fan, you’ll recognize the title of my post for today. It has a double meaning for me tonight as I’m dreading tomorrow… My last day at a daycare where I’ve been employed  for close to two years now. We are shutting down due to low funds and I’ve already had to say goodbye to around 10-15 kids so far. The rest of my farewells will be tomorrow to approximately 45 kids. And even though I’m ready to move on for several different reasons, I do not want to go through those goodbyes. 

And so, of course, running through my head are the sad songs from the saddest movie/play I’ve ever seen… Les Mis. (I have said in previous blogs most anything in my life I can bring back to something from a movie, book or music!) I can hold my emotions in check pretty well but tonight its been a struggle. 

I am ready to move on but please do keep your thoughts and prayers for me and about 20 other of my fellow employees who will be without a job after tomorrow. Thank you so much!

All my love,



Mermaids Part of Our World?

Hey guys!

Nothing too exciting happened today except for the fact that I keep hearing about this show on Animal Planet called “Mermaids.” If you haven’t had the fortune of hearing or watching the show, the title is self-explanatory. Supposed real footage of mermaids, government conspiracies, ect.

Because of my current busy schedule, I have yet to watch an episode. But a fellow co-worker enlightened me by sharing video ‘footage’ taken from the show and let me tell you… I’m a bit creeped out now.

See, there’s one thing you need to know about me before I continue: I really don’t like fish. They’re rubbery-looking with bulging eyes and… uhg. I can’t even go on without shuddering. The weird thing is, I absolutely love aquariums. Its just those fishtanks from Walmart with the dead ones hanging out at the bottom that make me queasy. That, and the abnormally big ones that don’t belong on this planet. Or anywhere else, for that matter.

There was one time when I went to a lake to go have pictures taken, goldfish came to the edge that were half the size of my leg. No joke, I almost got sick right then and there. But anyway!

So basically one of the videos I saw was of a ‘mermaid’-thought-to-be-seal on a rock right before it literally crawled away into the ocean, tail dragging behind it and all. Do I believe it? Not sure. Am I creeped out? Definitely.

The point isn’t if its real or not… For me, the point is if I’m going to have nightmares about it tonight or not! Even so, my interest is piqued and I am thinking about watching the show.

What do you think? Are mermaids real or is all a hoax?

All my love!


Geek Time!

Hello everyone!

Tonight’s post will be short because sleep is calling me… I just can’t ignore it!

So for this round, I am going to be a geek freak. My apologies. But its not overly done, I promise. So.. here we go.

I have never watched the Star Trek series in my life. But after seeing the first movie from 2009 (I believe…) I have wanted to know everything about it. So yesterday, I basically dragged my mom (the only one willing to see it with me…) to see “Into The Darkness”. I have heard a lot of mixed reviews, as every movie has, but all in all I really enjoyed myself! Maybe it was the slap stick humor that I

Zachary Quinto as Spock in the 2009 Star Trek film

always fall for or the fact that Spock is officially my hero… either way, I’d give it a 9/10. (Considering Kirk’s character is a little bit of a womanizer but I won’t get into that because I still like him, too).

I know I know… I haven’t even seen the original series! And I’ll be getting right on that (if I can find someone willing to loan me their copy..)  with a pretty open summer ahead of me.

Share your thoughts! If you’ve seen the movie(s) let me know what you think of them! (keep in mind, I’m basically a newbie here when it comes to the entirety of ST…)


All my love,
