Jesus loves me

This I know for the Bible tells me so. Little ones to him be long they are weak, but he is strong. Yes Jesus loves me, Yes Jesus loves me, Yes Jesus loves me the Bible tells me so. It just doesn't get any simpler than that.

Happy Birthday to.....

my husbands grandmother. She is 87 today. We are going to spend the day with her today. We don't see her much and this will be a good day to be able to spend some time with her. Eric's sister was supposed to come into town this weekend, but her flight got all messed up. It will encourage both her and my mother in law for us to come and spend the day.

I haven't posted in how long?

I can't belive first of all that has been so long since i posted. Now I can't believe that I am writing about how long it has been since I posted. lol. You can tell that I have had an uneventful week.

Funny Phrases!

Some friends were talking with me last night about funny phrases we hear only hear in the south. Some examples are

Isn't he pitiful.
Bless her heart.
I am going to carry her to the store.

I found it very amusing to hear of there first encounters with southerners saying these phrases. If these phrases don't seem to be odd to you, you are definitely a southerner. lol.

Ode to the E!!!

I met Eric about 15 years ago. The first time I talked with him, I realized that I could spend the rest of my life with him. He was passionate and on the same path as I was. I was so taken back by him. Not just by the way he looked, but by his attitude of no fear. I believed that he was the most wonderful man in the whole wide world. I still do today. If there is one thing that I have learned during this journey with him, it is that I love him and seeing him happy is worth anything that I posses. There is nothing more fulfilling to me than to see him fulfilled. His passion for things still is a turn on for for me. He is a great father to our two girls. He has surpassed any home of dad that I had for him. What do you say about someone you have known for as long as I have him. I love you E and I will always love you. There are several songs that come to mind when I think of him and one of them is on the clip of the week. Here are the lyrics to another one that reminds me of Eric. But in truthfulness, there are no words that could truly express how I feel for him. He in is Eness. I love you Eric. Forever.

Some people live for the fortune
Some people live just for the fame
Some people live for the power yeah
Some people live just to play the game
Some people think that the physical things
Define what's within
I've been there before
But that life's a bore
So full of the superficial
Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you
Some people search for a fountain
Promises forever young
Some people need three dozen roses
And that's the only way to prove you love them
And in a world on a silver platter
And wondering what it means
No one to share, no one who truly cares for me
Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you
Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you
If I ain't got you with me baby
Nothing in this whole wide world don't mean a thing
If I ain't got you with me baby

In honor of anniversary's and romance

This was a unique way to pop the question.

Roll Tide Anyway. I thought the game dragged a little and this did not look like the same team that played Arkansas. With Mastin and Hall injured, It is sad to say they weren't the same team. DJ Hall is not the Alabama Savior or anything, but he sure makes a good addition. It is hard to re coop 185 yards out of 1 other player. But this is a young team and will be good for a long time. There will be time for championships. This loss to Georgia in the SEC conference will make a miracle be the only way to win that title. (interpretation beating LSU). All things are possible though.

In other news, the Colts won. Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Journeying together

Journey group was great tonight. I feel that we discussed some great issues we as Christians struggle with. It is always nice to know that there are other people in the trenches with you.

Alabama vs. Georgia

The game this week will be a true test of the team I think. I hope they pull off a win. My dad and I who are both die hard Alabama fans have a wager going on. He wants AL to win, but doesn't think they will. He was truly amazed last week when they pulled off the win. So, It will be exciting Saturday evening to be here at home watching the game. Roll Tide.

Acting it up!

I have been acting up this week. Class went great last night. It was fun to watch everyone do a wonderful job. I am doing a monologue from The Star Spangled Girl by Neil Simon. It is truly a perfect fit for me. Doing Meisner is so amazing. The transformation of my craft just continues to blossom as I cultivate it. Being Truthful moment to moment. I do struggle somewhat peeling layers off of myself.

Improv and Short Form

We have been working our way toward short form in the improv troupe in which I am involved. It was pretty cool last night to watch what developed. I don't know where that stuff came from. It was insane really. I had a hard time holding on to the accent, but I was some what distracted by the kids yesterday. Tonight I have my other class. I hope that want repeat itself. I hope to give a great performance tonight.


I am truly amazed how much God loves me. I was listening to my ipod this morning as I walked on the greenway. The lyrics of one of the songs still rings in my ear. He knows the depths of my heart and he still loves me the same. (Chris Tomlin). Amazing how God can know our deepest thoughts and still love us.

Roll Tide and Invincible

Last night we watched the Bama game. It was awesome. I sat thinking wow it would be awesome to be there. I found out 4 of my friends went to the game. What can I say, but they are so the people. lol. Great game. A lot to work on, but a great game. After the game, I flipped to find another game. I found Invincible instead. The Mark Walberg movie that is about football. Great flick. The girls were able to watch with me because it was a pretty clean movie. It had only one curse word and no sex, but a good story. I totally reccomend that movie.

Time Lapse

Wow, it has been a long time since I watch the Big Labowski. I think tonight is the night. That movie cracks me up. Also, I am going to watch the Score with Deniro and Ed Norton. It will be a most bodacious adventure. For sure.

Camp Mcdowell

Man it is in the boon docks. Wow. The middle of no where. I went there with a friend to deliver her son a birthday cake today. What more can you ask for than cake and great conversation. That is exactly what we had. It was a good time. I could not help but ponder over childhood memories as I was reminded of them due to the scenery of junk in yards everywhere.

I am a regular Julia Child

Lately, I have been tyring a lot of new recipes out. I guess maybe I have more time to do that kind of stuff now that both kids are in school. This week I made pumpkin muffins, banana bread, and Frappuccinos. It has been fun. And all the recipes passed the families inspection and have been approved for repeats. Tonight, we will be having Spaghetti and meatballs with some Garlic bread. All though I have been baking, I still am watching the intake. I know that eating at home is saving money and calories. I guess It is false to say that I am a regular Julia Child. Maybe I just should say I am a wannabe

has effected my brain I think. Helping Heidi with Science has about fried my brain. She is only in 5th Grade. I never did well in Science in school, especially college. My theory is that gravity is taking over my brain and it has fell to my feet. ARGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

I have an imaginary cat named Senor Bill. He is very pretty. I pet him all of the time. He is a Persian. He loves mice. He talks. He says meow. Pretty smart cat huh.


The definition of honor according to is

High respect, as that shown for special merit; esteem: the honor shown to a Nobel laureate.
Good name; reputation.
A source or cause of credit: was an honor to the profession.
Glory or recognition; distinction.
A mark, token, or gesture of respect or distinction: the place of honor at the table.
A military decoration.
A title conferred for achievement.
High rank.

I was reminded to today that If I give Honor to God and do things for him and to him, that It will work out. If I do things his way, not my own. That He is faithful to take care of me. Sometimes, I feel like a big jack ass or a dumb sheep. I forget how many times that he is taken care of me. I forget so soon how Wonderful He really is.


A Butterfly is amazing. I often see them when I walk on the greenway. There beautiful. I began to think of how we are like butterflies emotionally.

Egg - A butterfly starts its life as an egg.
Larva - The larva (caterpillar) hatches from an egg and eats leaves or flowers almost constantly. The caterpillar molts (loses its old skin) many times as it grows.
Pupa - It turns into a pupa (chrysalis); this is a resting stage.
Adult - A beautiful, flying adult emerges. There is no growth during this stage. This adult will continue the cycle and reproduce.

Butterflies live on a cycle. As humans, we often live the same cycle, only repetitively.

I can only speak for myself, but there are times in my life that I feed my soul through many outlets. Then there are times that I rest and then there are times that I fly and soar and become beautiful. I was reminded of this as I was struggling to make a decision. As I prayed to ask God to give me direction and peace, He spoke to me through his creation.

I began to realize that in this area, that I am in the larva stage and I must allow myself to go through this cycle of growth and I must realize that the day will come that I will soar.

It feels good....

to have a great show with a great audience. That is exactly what we had this evening at our improv show. It was a blast to work with everyone. I was nervous because we have not played a lot of games in rehearsal, but we have been doing some short form. It really help add more depth to the work I think as our leader Gene stated. The great thing is that I get to do this again tomorrow night. Yeah me. 7:00 at Ars Nova South Huntsville. hoo hoo.

Blah blahs!

I hate days like to day. I am from now on and forevermore going to refer to it as the Blah Blahs. Just feel pretty much yucky, crappy, and really nothing is wrong. These are the days you get up and do what you have to, but all along you want to go to stay in bed and sleep all day. Tomorrow will come and all will be well, but for now all I can say is Blah!

Tonight was awesome!

I had acting class tonight. I worked hard on my monologue all week and I enjoyed doing the monologue in class tonight. I love when I feel good about my work. I can't wait to do more more this weekend. I hope to get to be in at least 1 show. That will be a blast. I can't wait. I hope we have a good turn out. It has been down since we moved to South Huntsville.


I have been thinking a lot lately about the direction of where I want to go with my career as an actor as a teacher. I still don't have the answer yet, but many things have come to mind. There are so many things that I would like to do with the Acting and I just have to keep pressing on. I just love the production side of film as well. I love editing, gripping, filming, directing, and producing. I wouldn't mind one day owning my on theater or film studio. I have a lot to learn before that come about. I think that I could get a good bit of funding from several folks. So finances may not be much of an issue, but I just got to stay committed to learning the fundamentals of this business. I am on the right track, I just got to keep the train moving. Choo Choo.

So what that means for me is doing a lot of research and reading and working with media software. Watching a ton of movies and reading a ton of plays. It is obtainable that is for sure. A quote from the movie Goal! living the dream sums it all up really.

"The only one who can tell me I'm not good enough is you. And even then I may not agree with you." Santiago Munez

Back to the Greenway

That is where I was this morning. It was a split walk for me. I walked 2 miles with one friend and 2 dogs, one mile with another friend and one mile by myself. It was interesting needless to say. It took a little more time, but I wasn't walking alone. This is the important thing.

"The Holiday"

I had a chance to catch this movie this weekend at the lake. It was so girly, but so good. If you like looking at Jude Law and you love the acting of Kate Winslet as I do, then you should watch this movie. It was good story to. Jack Black and Cameron Diaz were good in it as well. Cute film. I give it 5 cutesies up.

Neil Simon

I have been reading several of Neil Simon"s plays. So I went to the Library and found vol 2 of the Collected Plays of Neil Simon. The introduction was written by him. It was amazing. It really ties in to where I am on my journey. He tells a story about going to opening night of one of his plays. A little old lady came up to him and said shame on you Mr. Simon, Shame on you. He began to realize that he had to be happy with his work and everyone else did not. There were several parts in this introduction of only 9 pages that just made me say wow. So now I am about to read the second selection from the book called the Gingerbread Lady. I am going to try to read as many of his plays as possible, then it is on to Woody Allen next I think. We shall see.
