B-Wavy, that picture is too cute! I love the expressions.

Best luck, NYN!!! I will keep my fingers and toes crossed, though I'm sure you'll do fine.

Omg, quit texting me!!

I need to put my vision plan in use. For the past 3 days my eyes have gotten horribly blurry, on and off, for several hours. Maybe it's fall allergies, maybe I'm having a reaction to my new mascara, or maybe I'm going blind. Anywho, I need to find out.

My Pure Barre instructor complimented me on my perfect form today. I was so excited.

I've always wondered why my handsome, intelligent, relatively articulate, hilariously funny, "normal-looking" son, who has always had girls chasing him and many friends, is so lacking in self confidence--other than his short stature issue. Turns out that he also had to endure the emotional trauma of being called "white-washed" and other similar terms, even in high school by people I thought were his friends. I don't even understand why...he wasn't a "nerd" or a geek. He was just like everyone else, minus the sagging pants and the "rachetness." He was just that cool, quiet, friendly kid that everyone liked. Me = then

It's a good gdam thing he didn't tell me about this at the time it was happening, because I'm pretty sure mama bear WOULD HAVE gone down to that school and shown some of those "real" black folks just how ratchet and ignorant we "white-washed wannabes" can be. I'm so angry because I thought by removing him from the homogeneous environment in which I was raised and allowing him to grow up in an extremely diverse area would allow him to circumvent the BS I had to grow up with...well, not so much. Sure, now I can look back on my own awful experiences and understand the psychology behind it and smile and say to myself, "Wow, I must have really been something special for people to hate me on sight without even getting to know me." But back then, I thought the flaw was in me. And even though my son knows better today, it has still crept into his psyche and affected his world view enough to make him wary of his "own people" and erode his self-esteem. I HATE that it has happened this way because we ARE "real" black people, and I NEVER wanted my son to feel uncomfortable around anyone, the way I do. We've both been called the "n" word and experience other forms of racism just like the "real" black people. My son's Chinese girlfriend's whackadoodle parents LOATHE him because he's a filthy, lazy, lying, cheating, "n." Interesting that dad is so busy cheating on mom, they can't stop fighting in the house they're defrauding the HUD system in order to live in long enough to see that their daughter is on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Yeah, my son's the lowlife, though. Sometimes, I WISH my son would be a little less of a standup guy just so it wouldn't p*** me off so much when people accuse and judge him unjustly.

I'm fairly certain that one day my head will explode and take out everyone and everything around me.

I just got so overwhelmed by work that now I can't concentrate on working.

Go RCC!! Do you love the workout? I've been reading up on Pure Barre instant videos, trying to decide which is the best to start with. It's too hard for me to keep us with regular classes on my work schedule. The way it's set up I could only make 1 or 2 a month. That's hardly worth it.

I do like it. I work a lot of evening shifts. 2-10:30 or 4-12. The noon classes work for me.

It's hard, even though it looks like you're not doing anything. Believe me, you are. I've gone to about 8 classes, so I don't see anything yet, but I do feel a little stronger.

It is very similar in fat content to the regular Lowfat lactaid milk. I love them both!

Argh, why did I get ready so early for this interview? Now I'm sitting here with nothing to do to distract me from my nerves!

On the plus side, my hair, makeup, and nails look great!

Good luck!

You will do great! Just remember to remain calm. You are qualified. They wouldn't have asked about you if you weren't.

Remember that.

That is what I read. I've paid attention to reviews and looked out for the ones that are not recommend for those unfamiliar to the work out. I'll hopefully find the best one to start with soon.

That's the type of workout I love. I recently rented a deep stretch yoga video. You are flat on your back 90% of the time, but you feel it. It was a great video. Several tense spots were worked out on the first try, and I was so relaxed afterward that I melted into the ground. I planned to follow up with a ballet inspired work out but I stopped 2 min in. It was killing my worn out bliss. I had to reverse the order the next time I worked out.

That's a let down, Rou. Tiny perfect pears should taste perfect too.

I've been craving pears. My supervisor brought the most beautiful fruit basket when my dad passed. It had one perfect pear in it, and that was the only thing I felt like eating. I made the mistake of leaving it un attended when extended family came over. A little girl, who has 666 somewhere on her scalp, played basketball with it.

I realize that's not a nice thing to say about a child but this girl is something else. I've watched her jump on strangers, climb onto their shoulders, and start ripping their hair out. She's also loves hurting small animals.
