Memory & Music


My friends and I when we were 18!! going to Manchester M.E.N Arena to see Westlife in Concert. YES we managed to get on a train, go to a different city and not get lost...who would of thought!








A few words:

Communication is a skill that you can learn. It's like riding a bicycle or typing. If you're willing to work at it, you can rapidly improve the quality of every part of your life.

My little Joker


My 4yr old son Jacob is a total clown, hes always saying & doing things that totally crack me up... today he was on a role!


1, Nothing like to kick start a diet!


Jacob comes up to me and pinches my belly and says mommy do you have another baby in there?


2, My husband and I were watching Knight and day.. Cameron diaz kisses Tom. Jacob is standing over Sophia's bouncer covering her eyes telling her she cant watch the people kiss because its yucky.


3, My husband is driving and takes a sharp turn... Jacob says "Easy Tiger" lol.

Seriously am I being unreasonable

I am going out of my mind stir crazy! We got new neighbors going back a few months ago who moved in up stairs, although I think I should really call them a platoon there is so many.
Lord give me strength i can not bare it any more. Club noise level music since day one! I have complained so many times to the rental office its become my regular Monday routine.
Two things in the past week have been the kicker for me:

1. Instead of taking there trash out the came downstairs and left it there in the entrance hall outside my door. SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! & it was there all weekend! you have to leave at some point you couldn't of taken it out when you went to your car??

2. 9:40pm last Sunday they decided to put there music back at club noise level for a get together. My kids are already in bed! my husband asks them to lower the music and the retards says and I quote "well what time is it the law says i can have this this loud til 10pm"

OMG I am losing my sanity and of course they ignored us and of course the music did not go off at 10pm... I don't understand I really don't if people have to leave your apartment to talk on there cell phones your music is too loud! Ive got strangers in and out of my building sounding like elephants in the middle of the night.

I'm not asking you to turn off your music I am asking you just to listen to it at a level that respects the people around you why is this too much to ask... and its the same everyday for at least 6hrs... word for word i can hear there music as if i was playing it. I mean I really don't think I'm being unreasonable so why the hell are these people being such A-holes about it.

AND whats making me even more angry is there is a whole bunch of them up there and when you sign lease for these apartments it states only 4people to each apartment. So there in violation with having freaking pull out beds and people sleeping in there living room like total hicks!

Lord help me please.

Karen Moning's ShadowFever


Ok let me first say the wait for this book was agony!! The cliff hanger we the reader was left on was the mother of all. ShadowFever book 5 in the Fever series is here.. and it couldnt of come fast enough.

About:

MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever.

Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

What follows is a shocking chain of events with devastating consequences, and now Mac struggles to cope with grief while continuing her mission to acquire and control the Sinsar Dubh—a book of dark, forbidden magic scribed by the mythical Unseelie King, containing the power to create and destroy worlds.

In an epic battle between humans and Fae, the hunter becomes the hunted when the Sinsar Dubh turns on Mac and begins mowing a deadly path through those she loves.
Who can she turn to? Who can she trust? Who is the woman haunting her dreams? More important, who is Mac herself and what is the destiny she glimpses in the black and crimson designs of an ancient tarot card?

From the luxury of the Lord Master’s penthouse to the sordid depths of an Unseelie nightclub, from the erotic bed of her lover to the terrifying bed of the Unseelie King, Mac’s journey will force her to face the truth of her exile, and to make a choice that will either save the world . . . or destroy it.

My opinion:

OMG this book was amazing! simply could not get any better. I read a 600 page book in a matter of 2short days, I was sad it had to end. There is more twist and turns in this book then a roller coaster at Conney island. Nothing can be guessed before Moning is allowing you to do so... its a slow start but once it gets going its fast paced and will leave you wanting more!


I don't want to talk "about" the actual story because it will give away the story, but trust me every fan of this series will be happy! There are hidden depth's to many characters... we get answers to many questions left lingering from the very 1st book.


AND... I love how characters from the highlander series comes into this last book, YES ladies the kelters arrive in Dublin AS WELL AS ADAM! woohoooooo.


5 stars! well written a great story with great characters, what an imagination KMM has.. such talent. I loved the world she created.. and so will you if you have not ever heard of the books go buy buy buy.


Feel the heat & catch the fever! and remember... stay to the lights :)

Ouch that hurt!

I haven't wrote a blog in what seems like forever! Here is the down low... Ive been trying hard to loose my baby weight, let me tell ya pregnancy changes your body in soooo many ways. If i didn't love my kids the world I think i could cry lol.
So at the recommendation of my husband (there was my first mistake :) ) I tried the P90x work out.... I wrenched my neck and ended up having to go to the doctor for an x-ray!

Headaches, Fever, sickly,dizzy, weak... I was a wreck! Turns out I also had a very low white blood cell count due to a infection I didn't know I had (so I guess I should thank him for that after all). SO YEA neck muscles in spasm and an infection GREAT, I really thought I've been dying for over a week. Which sucked because super mommy can not get sick with two kids let me tell you that's a fact.

Due to this I haven't read much boo boo boooooo! Although let me tell you guys about a great little series I like very much its called sweep by Cate Tiernan it has a Wicca storyline. There is 15 books altogether.. but here is the great news, they are re-releasing the books in volumes each volume will contain 3books and its only like $7 for them!!!! BARGAIN and well worth the read so check it out!

Happy New Year


Happy new year folks! I wish you all the best for 2011!

Well did everybody have a good holiday? I sure did :) We spent two fabulous weeks in Florida and believe me it still doesn't seem enough. We had soooo much fun.. it was the first Christmas I'd spent with my family in a while and Sophia's first xmas so it was that extra special for me this year, and to do it in what better place then where dreams come true.

To me Florida is like going home there are so many English people there with English products.. I just love it! so I did stock up on all my home goodies before I came back to NJ.


Ive got to take a moment to talk about my most amazing part of this trip... I mean lots of things were amazing, the lights, the parades, the characters... but nothing compared to the Wizard world of Harry Potter! AMMMMMAAAZZING. Normally I find when things of been hyped so much they fall short. This lived up to every one, the ride itself was fantastic and worth the 2hr wait. We ate at the restaurant, took pics with the train, bought our scarfs lol. Loved it!! Universal outdid itself with this..
Well now I am home :( all good things must end... time to take down my tree.
