Where I Came From

I wasn't born yesterday, although it would make a great excuse some days. See, I seem to be suffering from CRS. For those of you that don't know, or are suffering from CRS, it is a very serious disease. It can strike anyone at any time, although it is more likely to hit as we get older (over 21, that's all I admit to). CRS was completely unknown to me until about 6 or 7 years ago when my beloved Grandma started showing signs of the disease. CRS stands for Can't Remember Shit. Actually, Grandma called it 'Stuff'. She was always a lady, and one of the mot important people in my life. She is in heaven now, baking and cooking, taking care of her flower beds, and shopping with other angels. I miss her every day. OK, well, I am the oldest (not old) of 4 siblings. I have a brother and two sisters. We grew up in Ohio, and moved to NJ when we were still kids. I have 3 nephews and 7 nieces, and love them all as if they were mine. Each one of these kids have a special placve in my heart. I try to spend time with each of them, quality time. For instance, I just spent my Saturday night watching three of the kids while their parents went out to dinner. We watched movies while we ate popcorn, peanuts, chips and dip, and wings. These are some pictures of me with the kids and my dog, Isabella.
I am a great aunt, but I am also mom to Matt. He will be getting plenty of time here. Matt is the love of my life, and some days he's the only reason I keep going. I am a single mom, its tough every day, all the time!

Now my whole story is out, I guess. My family consists of me, Matt and Isabella. Maybe we will add to our family one day, but not right now. I am just looking for a guy that likes to have fun, nothing more. I tried the "more" stuff, but it gets complicated. I want time to be me again, spend time with my loved ones and laugh. So, yeah, any single guys that can laugh and have fun, let's laugh. But you'd better like hot wings, icy cold beer and horror flicks. Otherwise, where's the fun?

Anyway, Saturday night with Frank, Miranda and Jade absolutely ROCKED! I have yet to meet the man who can outdo these kids in the fun department. Yes, that is a challenge...

My First Time

Ok, this is my first time at this stuff. I feel like the ultimate dork! Five years ago, I knew how to do just about anything asked of me having to do with a computer and the Internet/email. Today, I can't tell you exactly what an Ipod is, do not own one, and have no idea how to use them. And today, I had to learn what a Blog is. Hey, everyone else is doing it... Why can't I? So, I am gonna just do it! Maybe I waited because I was scared no one would be interested in what I did, or what I had to say. Who cares?
Today I was L... A... Z... Y. Isn't that what Sundays are for? I watched TV all day, did a few loads of laundry, and scrapbooked. Yes, I am a scrapaholic. If I had to choose, working on my scrapbooks is real high on my priority list, and one of my favorite pasttimes. Some days I would love to call out sick from work and spend an entire day doing something that I love. But, I have not done that, because I am too responsible, too honest. I put everyone else's needs in front of my own. How boring is that??
Question of the day (this is where I want feedback people): How can we make me less boring, more fun and exciting? I should be able to still be a "responsible adult" while having FUN.
I will be working on getting some pictures in here, some jokes that make my "A" list, and other things more fascinating.
Well, enough playing for one night. It is going to be one of those week's where there just isn't enough coffee to keep me going.
