Bleeding Love

Ok another quick post, but this song has been in my head for weeks. Finally today I figured out who sings it. Bleeding Love by Leona Lewis is my new favorite song at the moment. It is so catchy and her voice just blows me away. I will admit the video is not that great but for some reason I can just keep listening to this song over and over. Call me crazy but it is a great song.
Check out the video I found on youtube.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sF84pIhP5UM

Ok made me laugh!

Ok this is random but I just noticed that on my side bar one of my google ads is how to get fast kidney stone relief. I mean does google know me or what. That is just funny. And right now at
work at 10:32pm I need a good laugh. Ok back to work I go. Catch you all later.

I Love My Grandma!

Well I hope everyone had a great Easter, I know I had a wonderful Easter. My grandparents, Aunt & Uncle, sister Lisa and her husband Mike came over for lunch. And our lunch was oh so yummy. We had ham, mac-n-cheese, sweet potatoes (or yams not sure), sour dough bread, deviled eggs, and much more.

But the best part of it all was sitting around talking. My aunt asks my grandma how she liked her new digital camera and my grandma said she had not gotten a chance to use it yet, but if my aunt wanted to take pictures now that she could. But then my grandma says, "oh wait I don't have any film in the camera".

Ok at this point I almost fall out of my seat laughing so hard. I love my grandma and it just makes me wonder what funny things I will say when I am old and grey and my kids know more then me on technology.

My Brain in a Frying Pan!


So I am finally feeling much much better. No more kidney stone pain and no more throwing up day in and day out. I think my toilet is feeling lonely these days. But just because I know you are dying to know, I actually cleaned my bathroom from head to toe. That is an accomplishment for me. I really hate chores. I even mopped the floor. My next thing to do is buy a new shower curtain. That really needs to be done. By now I know my sister Susan is dying laughing and is wanting to see pictures of this clean bathroom I talk about. As kids I was definitely the one that tried my hardest to sneak out of Saturday afternoon chores.

But all these painful actions brought to mind some bad habits of mine. Since I have currently been having problems with kidney stones, it has brought to light that I have a health problem. One that could be solved somewhat easily. That is, if I could lay off my personal crack called sodas. Yes, I said sodas. I have been trying for a while to cut out sodas, but I just have not been very successful. I will go for a couple of weeks and then all of a sudden I will fall off the wagon. Lately I have fallen off the wagon, but I am determined to get back on and stay on. Dr. Pepper is my current choice of crack. It is just so good. Working late hours doesn't help me at all either. I use Dr. Pepper to keep me awake and going. I know this is a bunch of excuses and I just need to suck it up and kick the habit.

Another lovely bad habit of mine that really gets on my boyfriend's nerves, I believe, is biting my nails. I know tons of you are saying gross. Do you know where those fingers have been and touched? But hey I just can't resist. They are just drawn to my mouth. I try to avoid them but next thing I know I am biting away. My dad loves to say, "Are you hungry? Did we not feed you enough?". As for the biting the nails habit, this is going to be tougher to break. But I am determined to try. So keep me in mind week to week and if you see me doing any of these bad habits, I give you permission to yell at me.

Oh, I almost forgot, one I have to start eating healthy foods like vegetables. Ok I said yes, vegetables, the green ones and all. Oh gosh I think my stomach just twisted. Ok got to run but I will catch you all later. And have a great Easter and enjoy your family and company this Sunday. I know I will.

Life is Good!

WARNING: This is a unedited post. Wrote by Kathy herself. So bad grammar, misspellings, and run-on sentences are sure to follow.


Well I hope everyone is doing well out there today. I have been sick for the past couple of weeks. Things have just not been going my way health wise. But yesterday I finally started to feel better. And in this life there are just a few simple pleasures that I believe we forget. Those for me yesterday was the great taste of a McDonald's McFlurry, Coke, and French Fries. Since being sick I have not been able to eat anything and keep it down.

So just taking a mouthful of that sweet cold McFlurry put a smile to my face. And tasting the salty French fries yum. The Coke oh my gosh was the best after a week worth of nothing but water. Do I need to say anything else. But luckily I am doing better.

Unfortunately today I am feeling a little kidney stone pain. But cross your fingers that this passes quickly. I am ready to be back to my cheerful Kathy self. Also to be back to making more blog entries for you great people. Have a great weekend all.

One More Time!


There are many things I would not wish upon my worst enemy. But lately what tops my list is kidney stones. Yes believe it or not I have actually managed to get another stone this week. I really don't understand my luck with these things. But lately, me and kidney stones just love each other. The pain started Wednesday night at work and has continued so far though Saturday. No fun whatsoever. On top of the kidney stone pain, I have been throwing up too. Talk about being hit hard twice. I am not quite sure which is worse: extreme pain in my side or hugging the toilet like it is my best friend all night long. But I think I am going to make it though it I am one tough cookie I believe.

On a happy note I have come across a blog that has been keeping my interest, Confessions of a Pioneer Woman. This is a big task because as many of you know I tend to have a small attention span for many things. But this blog is great. She talks about her family life and life on a ranch. The extra cool thing is she also has a cooking blog. Lately it has been really intriguing me as I want to become a better cook, shoot who am I fooling, I want to become a cook period. And just today I read that she is going to start a photoshop blog. Extra cool. I believe that maybe, just maybe. I found this out before Lisa did hehe. (*edit: I did not find out before Lisa.*) By the way, Lisa is the wonderful person that introduced me to this great new blog. I hope that you all enjoy it has much as I do. I am especially recommending this to my sister Susan. She has informed me that my blog has not been occupying the time she needs to kill at work and that the trusty blog she can count on is my best friend Lisa's. So there you go Susan don't say I never think about you.

Also wonderful this week was having lunch with my big sis Lisa. This is a huge event because, to be honest, me and my sister Lisa love each other but have never been super close. Lately we have been talking more and reaching out more than usual. This has made me super happy. The more and more I talk and get to know her, the more I realize she is pretty cool. We met at her work in Charlotte and had lunch at this place called Cabo Fish Taco's. Her workplace was super cool. It is located in a old coca cola factory and is decorated really modern. It even has its own bird cage with colorful small birds in it. Now sometimes I believe that my sister Lisa might have forgotten who her little sister is when she suggested eating at Cabo Fish Taco's. The name alone made my stomach curl. Most of you know that I am a super picky eater. A five year old probably has the same tastes as me. But I was able to find something to eat and I enjoyed my sister's company more than ever. So I look forward even more to the future conversations and time I will have with my cool sister Lisa. Don't worry Susan you are still extra cool also.

Since I have been sick this week I have actually been able to clean out my DVR listings. I know this is a huge task for those of you who know how much I have actually managed to store up on my DVR. But I am so proud of myself and now I don't have to listen to my dad scream every day about how the DVR can not hold this much. Now I actually think my dad has more on there than I do. Oh yeah! I am all caught up with my favorite shows such as Kyle XY, Ace of Cakes, and America's Dance Crew on MTV. Now I am just waiting for next Sunday when the ABC Family tv movie The Cutting Edge 3 comes on. I know I am a big dork but I love it.

Ok well that is all for now folks. My stomach is curling and I am starting to ramble on about nothing. I will catch you all later.
