Louie !!!!...

OK, sooooo I had the best thing happen to me on Friday.  A lady came to the counter who volunteers many incredible hours to a very wonderful organization.  Every time she comes in we have fun small talk over her purse which is a Louis Vuitton (sp?).  I have even offered to babysit it for her !!  lol  old me that her mom lives back east and goes to estate sales and buys up anything LV even knock offs.  So this angel reaches into her purse and hands me 2 knock off LV purses and tells me that she thought of me and knew I would love to have them for FREE !!!!  I was so excited and beside myself that I first hid the purses for fear someone would steal them then I thought NOO wait I need to share what I got !  So I was able to unwind with the girls tonight with a glass of wine and home to an empty house cause the girl went to spend the night with reptile boy !!  Uggh .... ok ..yep I am now coming in second to reptile boy.  WTH ???? !!!   Maybe that is just the jealousy coming out .... hhmmm blech.,,

Simply Me...

Well I have been doing a little remodeling on my blog, trying to find the right "feel" so when I get on here I want to blog.  I am going with a new title..."Simply Me".  I think it is very appropriate !!  I am trying to find my niche at this blogging stuff.  I seem to be being steared in a very traditional way, my journey with being a single mom of 2 adult children (literally) and just my start at finding my own way and independence again. 

So getting off to a great start (not) I was wondering if there was a way to un-spoil an 18 year old.  Hhhmm I ask myself "What the hell have you done?".  She is so used to getting everything she wants and needs that when I ask her now to do chores around the house since she is now out of school and not working and being able to wake up naturally that it should in no way be a problem .... right?  Oh NO.  The chore list is a week old now and she needs hair dye... soooooo hhhmm.... do the damn chores and I MIGHT consider getting you freakin hair dye !!!  It worked, however with an attitude and things being half assed done.  So next will be the threat of "the dreaded car".  Now that one might just work !!!

On another note, I have an important decision to make....Digital Photography or Watercolors ??  As much as I love photography I think I might choose the less likely one.  Watercolors !!  I am excited just thinking about it !!  This will count as an art credit I need to get my AA (2 year degree) that has taken me 16 years to get !!
