You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

Our Baby K is Officially 1!

Well, here she is our birthday girl!

sitting here with her mom taking it all in!
and of course the gratuitous photo of nonni and baby K
As suspected, she like the wrapping and boxes better!
but man was she tired by the end of the day!

It was a beautiful day in the park! The weather was perfect! The Gods were looking down on us last Saturday, making sure everything was perfect for Baby k's first birthday! She had cake, friends, presents, bubbles and hot dogs! what more could a kid want! Too bad it totally didn't phase her... she had no clue what was going on around her, but we did get some great photos! I think between all digitals involved it was about 300 photos...Spoiled Rotten Baby!

So Concludes This Birthday Weekend! Gothman, this shot's for you!!!!

So, this is it folks! The birthday weekend is over, I have turned another year older(no wait, never older,I turned another year wiser!) and baby K has turned a year!
This has been an incredible weekend, though it started on Thursday, but man am I glad it's over!
Thursday was my birthday!!!! Yeah!!! I worked half a day, and then so stared the fun, I had lunch with an wonderful friend and then went to watch Little G bowl, then pizza and shots! One of Little G's bowling mates' father's was also celebrating his birthday as well, and so started the party! I kept up with him, a "seasoned" partyer, I suspect, 7 shots for 7 shots!!! JD straight! I probably should have stopped at shot number 4, put pushed on to #5, by #6, I was feeling no pain and well, by #7 I felt nothing, my face was numb! I woke up at 2am with a flipping head ache and stomach ache, thought I would die...MY OWN FAULT! Took some Excedrin, which worked for the headache, but the stomach was on it's own...I pushed on, took my mom to the dentist, went to work, took baby K to CHUCK E. CHEESE FOR HER BIRTHDAY ... ICK!!!!
Went shopping for baby K's birthday party the next day and made salads. etc....
Saturday, got up and walked my 3 miles, and got ready for the party and then was out in the park for 6 hours, finished up there, went to dinner, then hit the Ron White Comedy Show, which was hilarious! came home and went to sleep only to start my Mothers day, pretty much the the same way! Crap! There was a lot of activity going on... I'm glad it's Monday and I have to go to work! I can actually catch my breath!!!

Thanks Mistress…

A)Available or Single… isn’t this the same? No, I don’t think it is…hum… Yes, I suppose I’m available, but no I’m not single…** hummmm***
B)Best Friend…My sister, Debi. And Liz, we’ve been friends since the 3rd grade and I would consider Denise one of my best friends, we’ve been friends for the last 15 or so years… she knows things, like I don’t care for her husband. I can’t just have one… they are all my best friends for different reasons!
C)Cake or Pie…While both are just wrong for this Italian girl cuz, it will just go straight to my A**, I love Tiramisu and Italian Rum Cake. But alas, I must not indulge… too much cake makes for too much Ann!~
D)Drink of Choice…I love Ice water not a big fan of soda, though, it would be Diet Pepsi if I do drink soda., I hate diet coke.… oh and Jack Daniels Straight!!! Gothman…Prost! **as she slams back the shot, and she’ll be slamming back a few on the 10th Gothman, join us for pizza and shots!**
E)Essential Items…Hair straightener, Make up (Make up whore) my laptop, my cell, my contacts/glasses, CD’s, my CAR!!!

I'm finally up and running!!!!

I love my laptop! I'm feeling a tad stupid, however, because it is just abit different from my desktop. But I'm working out the kinks. Little G sits and looks at it, like a puppy sitting at his master's feet at the dinner table waiting for scraps of food to drop...She is upset that mom is being so mean by not letting her "play" on the computer. OH well life's a bitch and... so is mommy!
The day I got it I brought it home and tried to get it all set up to be in the wireless mode. OH ok like that was going to happen! I spent about an hour reading the directions, plugging, unplugging cables, cursing, then I called my friend who's husband dabbles in this type of crap... he's couldn't walk me through it. So he came over to the house on Saturday and HOOKED ME UP!!! IT'S OFFICIAL FOLKS, I'M WIRELESS!!!!
Gothman, I thank you for your offer to 'hook me up" I will keep this information, should I need further assistance!!! Your awesome to offer to help me out 1/2 way around the world!!!
