"The Club"

Since I a child I dreamed of being a mom.
Since I was a child I have wrote down names I loved and had to name my future children.
Since I was a teenager I thought about "the club"

Some women gain acceptance into "the club" by accident.
Some woman gain acceptance into "the club" without any problems.
Some women gain acceptance into "the club" after years of trying.
Some woman gain acceptance into "the club" after spending thousands of dollars.
Some woman gain acceptance into "the club" after seeing a swarm of doctors and specialist.
Some woman gain acceptance into "the club" after years of trying, failed attempts, and spending thousands of dollars.

To me all moms no matter HOW they became a mom are members of this "club" .

I have wanted to be a member of this "club" since I can remember.
I am hoping in 2011 I will be able to gain acceptance into "The Club"

such a slacker!!

Not having a computert at home anymore realling hinders your blogging time!


I have Cloie (Goddaughter) almost full time now, not legalized (yet) but her mom agreed to it. She is going to school where I work at and it is awesome!! We get to spend so much time together, do homework ( not so much fun) , projects, school pics were last week & I signed her up to be in the school fashion show, girl scouts & ballroom dancing. If she was with her mom she would probably miss school all the time & falling behind & not doing any of the fun activites she is doing now. I am not trying to knoeck her mom but her mom is pregnant yet AGAIN!!!! She has Cloie -6 Michael - 4 James - 9 months (born 15 weeks early) and is now pregnant again. It amazes me that people like here can just keep popping out kids. So she would really not have time to do all these things with Cloie.

I could really turn this into a VENT post againt her mom but I won't.

I am really looking forward to the next few weeks with the holidays and seasons changing. Not so much my gas bill but....

I am going to try to upload some new pictures today if I have my camara cord.

Hope everytone is well!!!!

Wow talk about being MIA

Hey Everyone,

I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted, nothing has really changed.
Still working as a school scretary & loving it.
I have spent some time with my Neice/God-daughter Cloie I had her over Memorial weekend & took her to my old neighorhoods annual parade & she even got to see the Mayor of Philadelophia and The Govonor of Pennsylvania. They come to our parade EVER YEAR!!!!

This past weekend I took her to the shore from Thursday to Monday and we had so much fun. We went to the beach everyday played in the water, built sandcastles, played vollyball. Last yr she liked the water but would not really go in, This year was a whole differant ball game. She LOVE the water she spend most of the time in the water. As soon as we put our bags down on the sand she would take a beeline righ to the water.

We went to the boardwalk one night and she wanton rides for over 2 hours. I took lots of pictures but will have to post them on Tues because I forgot to bring my camara cord to work today and I am off on Monday , so I will have to post them all on Tuesday

Sorry this is so sort but I have to get back to sending out supply list to the families!!!

oh yea

The hell with the Diet this week, Give me a cheesesteak!!! :)


Thank God it is Friday!!! Work has be SUPER busy, I am lucky if I actually get to pee during the day. I have been eating lunch at my desk & working like crazy!!!
See I work for a school & from now until Sept is my busy time. In April we had our lottery to choose who gets in or who does not. So after the lottery I have parents calling me crying " my baby didn't get in I'm so upset" or people yelling at me because that already have children here and the youngest one did not. Or my favorite "What is a waiting list?" SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!
We only really took Kindergarten children because the rest of the students will move up, so we may have only had 1-3 spots in the other grades.

Well in May we have all the new students coming for a screening to see where they are academically, so we know how to place them in September. I had to mail out postcards to tell the parents that their children were accepted. However if they do not come to the screening that will forfeit their spot. I'm taking bets how many parents will not show up and then call on Thursday , after she screening process and tell me that did not know about it. WELL TO BAD it was on the website, & it was mailed to you. So sorry but your spot has been filled!!!!

I just have to mentally prepare myself for the CRAZY people!
Well it is 6:30 and I have been here since 6:45 this morning & I have to come in tomorrow for a few hours to help with out 9th grade screenings. UGGG I love this time if the year!

Have a GREAT weekend!!

Okay I have let myself go long enough!!! It is time for serious dieting!!
I have let myself go long enough. Back in 06 I joined we.ight Wat.chers LOVED IT!!!! I lost the weight so quick, when I actually followed it. And I can honestly tell you that it doesn't feel like a You can eat whatever you want, you can even DRINK your points if you so choose too.
The hardest part is the 1st week getting your body out of the routine of eating whatever and whenever you want. But after that it is EASY!!!!

I have also begun going to the gym every morning at 5am yes 5 AM. I have to be in work at 7:30 and usually do not get home until after 7 so their is no way I am going to want to go out to the gym once I get home from working 12 hours, plus going to the gym pumps your adrenaline up so it is hard to fall asleep. So now I drag my out of bed at 4:45 (okay sometimes I hit snooze but just once) then I am at the gym by 5:20 workout for a hour then run home to get read for work. I can honestly say the hardest part is actually getting out of bed, once I am out of bed it is easy. I feel so good the rest of the day, I have so much more energy!!!!

Last night I actually took a picture of myself in my FAVORITE pair of jeans size 8 they would button BUT were VERY TIGHT!!!! I am using that as a incentive to lose the weight, I actually want to get into a 6 we shall see!!!!

I will take a new picture every 2 weeks to show my progress getting into my size 8 jeans! I am going to wait to post them until I have my 2nd picture to show my progress so far!

Okay I have to get back to doing some work!!!

Baby James

Hello all,

I have a few minutes so I will update you on Cloie's brother.
Mom work up bleeding a lot, she said the tub was full of blood and clots ( sry TMI)
they rushed her to the hospital and tried to stop he from being born but they couldn't so
He was born on Tues Feb 23rd 15 weeks too early. He ( as well as mom) immediately had to receive blood transfusions. They told mom that they almost lost her.
He weighed in at 1lb 10 oz and was 13 inches long. He is hooked up to all kinds of machines.
He has a hole in a heart valve & a leak in his lung but they are healing with medicine. But he does have bleeding in his brain & they are very worried about it. :(
He also tested positive for Marijuana so now DHS is involved. I am hoping that they call me to take Cloie.
Mom was discharged on Friday, James will be there until prob May.
It is so sad because mom or dad do not drive so they will have to take the bus to the hospital to see him so I doubt they will go everyday. Unfortunately the NICU at the hospital he is in is level 3 ??? so nobody can see him except mom and dad we can't even look thru the glass to look at him. :(
Please continue to pray from baby James.

My God Daughter's mom had her baby this morning at 25 weeks pregnant. I am not sure of the details I am going to go to the hospital tonight after work. PLEASE PRAY for little baby boy!!!

Things I HATE!!!

1. I hate that my relationship with my bestfriend has changed, since the birth of her AWESOME, adorable,wonderful, so stinky cute twins, whom I LOVE SO MUCH!!!!. Sadly I knew it would when she was pregnant that things would never be the same. She didnt think things would change, but deep down I knew i miss our days of spedning the day together, shopping, movies, eating & Yummy Margaritas.

2. I hate that when I tapped MAC this morning my account didnt have as much as I was expecting & now must rethink what bills I was going to pay.

3. I hate that I am supposed to leave work at 4 today and will probable get screwed and get stuck here until 7:30, missing my time with C.loie. I am supposed to leave at 6:30 everyday but have been staying late because I am swamped. ( with out pay)

4. I hate not really hate but I get upset with the fact that all these celebrities are so concerened with Hai.ti. BELIEVE ME I AM TOO but there are so many children here in THE U.SA who are going to bed hungry, with no heat, come to school with no lunch, and clothes with holes in them, and we are focused on Hait.i. NOW I know that children who are hungry and cold here in the US.A have it off better then the children in Hai.ti, JUST because they are US.A citizens. But it still makes me upset. ( wow is that awful)

5. I hate the work blocked Face.Book .

Will Post more later!!!!!

hopefully snowed in!?!?!

So about 6-7 months ago I took my niece Cloie to the "Jersey Shore" in Wildwood for the weekend. We had so much fun playing in the water building sand castles, looking for shells, chasing down the Fudgy Wudgy man down the beach. Here she is Posing in the Ocean

Well I talked to her mom and I am going to take her this weekend. WOO HOO Not to mention that we are "supposed" to get up to 12+ inches of snow so the next post I will be posting pictures of Cloie with all her snow gear on.
I am hoping that if it is bad out the school I work at will close on Monday so I will have more time with her.
CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!

Joys of working!!!

Okay So I am sitting here at my desk at work trying to catch up on blogs oops I mean Work, When the security guard of my after school program came to me bring innocent Siddiq who by the way is only in KINDERGARTEN. Since I am also the director I must deal with all the fun issues that arise. Mr. Siddiq got in trouble in class and his teacher (sweet ole' Ms. H) gave him a pink Slip ( behavior write up) but instead of giving it to him to put in his school bag she asked Mr. X to hold onto it and give it to his parents when they came. All was fine until Mr. X had a feeling to look on his desk where he HID the form to discover it was gone.

Mr. X - Siddiq where is the pink slip??

Siddiq- I don't know, some kid crumbled it up and threw it in to the toilet and it went all the way down.
Mr X- Siddiq who did it?
Siddiq- I don't know who it was.

They bring him to me !!

I was talking to him asking him question about what happened to the paper and he gave me the same line. I then said well if you didn't do it then how do u know what happened to it????
he said he didn't know the kids name ( umm siddiq we have all been in Aftercare since Sept and you know every one's names but you know what why don't you point him out to me???

Siddiq then said oh he already left. ( hummm lie much)

finally after 10-15 mins of talking to him and not getting him to confess a light bulb went off
so I said okay Siddiq we are going to have to go check the video camera's and whoever did it will be in big trouble, but if you did it and have been lying about it it will be very serious ( blah blah) he finally admitted to it. he said he didn't want to get in trouble for being rude to his teacher but NOW you will be in trouble for theft, lying, destruction of property, and that you could have damaged the toilet for throwing paper down into it.

So I kept him with me in my office and made him write his site words 3 times and his alphabet then let him draw. He kept asking for crayons and to get a pencil with a sharp point. I would just keep saying "nope you are in trouble it is not fun time"

the thing that cracks me up is he is in KINDERGARTEN what the hell will he be doing when he is 10, 16, 18 ahhhh I can't even think about it because he will most likely still be at this school since we are K-12 lucky me!!!!!!
