Time
lovethyone
This is my "Saturday" and I am exhausted from every angle. BUT!!!! I have a weekend to spend with the one I love, SO! I must march onward for there is a suitcase to pack, shaving of legs to ensue, perfume to spray, strawberries to buy (for the champagne), and miles to drive to him......


oh, yes, life is charmed, life is a roller-coaster of charms and daggers.

Downs and Ups~
lovethyone
I am trying wholeheartedly to pull myself up from crashing into depression. Blah.

Single motherhood is not the issue, I've been doing that married for 13 years anyway.. It seems to be the immense pressure of financial issues that I have allowed to beat me down. I don't want to lose what I have gained. I keep praying that I will make it. I have to!! I have three children who deserve the best!

Onward. Upward.


ciao babies,

Shannon

Update
lovethyone
As of May 18th, my divorce was final.

I am now living in a townhouse (oh how I do NOT miss living so close to other people!!) but I am grateful because this place is mine and my children's, at least for the next year.

I am finally at peace and life is treating me with kid-gloves (at the moment) and I laugh every single day!


Ciao,

Shannon

Guess the movie title
lovethyone

<input ... >
Guess the movie title!
1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Post a quote from each movie.
3. Tag everyone who you want to guess.
4. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search or looking at my favorite movies on my Facebook page.
(And NO you do not have to put them in order from ''most favorite to least favorite''...At least I know I'm not...Plus, it keeps it kinda more exciting if you mix it up a bit!:-)
Ahhh..I have WAY more favorite movies than this..But oh well, go ahead and take a whack at it! Here's a few:

1. "I'll love you my whole life"

2. "Were you going to leave without telling me?"

3. "Life is..........you never know what you're going to get" (too easy) ;)

4. "I won't kiss you again until you ask me" " And that I never will"

5. " The people back home wouldn't buy a ring if they knew it cost someone else their hand"

6. "Please don't let them kill me. I... I promise I won't be Tutsi anymore. " and " What- what are you going to do... shoot me? Shoot me. Please shoot me. It would be a blessing. I would pay you to shoot my family. You can not hurt me." (the immense strength of Aficans! amazing!)

7. " You tell them that our lives can change with every breath we take and to hold on like hell to what they've got: Each other and a mother who would die for them and almost did. You tell them we've all got bad in us, but we've got goodness too. And the only thing worth living for is the good. And that's why we've got to make sure we pass it on. "

8. "And those are the words of a gentleman? From the moment I met you your aroggance and conceit and your selfish disdain for the feelings of other made me realize that you are the last man in the world I could ever be prevailed upon to marry. " ahh, but she did anyway!

9. "If he loved you with all the power of his soul for a whole lifetime, he couldn't love you as much as I do in a single day. " *melts*

10. " She is my sister, therefore one-half of me"

anxious!

This is where I went yesterday with my Nigerian Priest. It was gorgeous!!




Realization
lovethyone
I've begun to notice that I seem to postpone appointments with dr.'s, my priest, family, people, my instructors, basically anyone really and I don't know why..

Even when it is things that I want to do with them, I seem to cancel and postpone them, push them off for a couple of days, or weeks.

This is sounding like an avoidance issue, but avoidance to what?

I want to kick myself because I have missed doing so many good things with wonderful people because I do this stupid thing!


Weird, disturbing, immature, irritating.


What a Day!!!
lovethyone
Yesterday, we got word that our beloved priest, Fr. Charles, was missing. He had to return to his home country of Nigeria and was supposed to have flown back to the U.S. by two Sundays ago, however, no one could find him or reach him via phone. (There are dangerous situations in Nigeria, and priest are kidnapped and sometimes killed.) Needless to say, all of us were terribly upset, worried and had not slept. I emailed him twice yesterday, and finally today around 9am he emailed me back that he was safe! His dear mother is very ill and he had left his cell phone when they took her to the hospital and he could not go back to retrieve it. Everyone is beyond relieved!

And.....my first cousin had her first child this afternoon! A precious daughter, Ava Grace!


ciao,
S.
