Hurricane Irene

Friday, August 26, 2011

I'm not the only one who had baby wipes on their  list
I was in Walmart around 11 last night and this what was left on the bread aisle


The governor has issued a state of emergency for North Carolina. Hurricane Irene is coming and she isn't going to hold back any of her winds.


6 a.m. – Hurricane Irene is moving off the coast of Florida and Georgia at about 14 mph as a Category 2 storm. It's about 456 miles from Raleigh and has 110 mph winds. Irene is expected to increase to a Category 3 again before hitting our state

8 a.m. Saturday, forecasts show heavy surf off the coasts of South Carolina and Wilmington. A vast band of tropical storm strength wind – up to 90 mph – will build inland from the state's southeast corner. Winds could reach 105 mph across the northeastern corner of the state as the storm makes landfall Saturday afternoon.
For North Carolina, the main impacts of damaging winds and storm surge flooding will be confined to the far eastern portions of the state.

Last night I went to Walmart to pick up some last minute items. As you can see from the pictures above, there wasn't hardly any bread left and baby wipes.

SunTrust eliminates free checking

Wednesday, August 24, 2011



I have a free checking account at SunTrust that I use for grocery shopping, gas, things for the house and entertainment. Plus, SunTrust banks can be found in most states. I use my Credit Union account for my bills. I like keeping my bill money separate from my other money, because  it keeps me balance and I don't have to worry about overspending.




SunTrust will be replacing its Free Checking accounts, which carried no monthly maintenance fees and required no minimum balance, with what it’s calling “Everyday Checking” accounts. These will carry a $7 monthly maintenance fee unless customers maintain a $500 balance or post a $100 direct deposit into their accounts.


“Are you serious?”.. I will be closing my free checking account with SunTrust because I don't like the fact that I have to pay $5 a month for using their debit card for transactions. That is just crazy.

5 Signs He’s Not the One

Thursday, August 18, 2011


 

My last relationship was the one of the worst ones that I have ever been in. I think it was more harder for me to let go because I still loved him. I felt that all the time and energy invested that we could still work it out. NOT..I stayed with him knowing he was no good for me. When I found myself being out of character it was really time for me to step back and ask what the HELL am I doing.


I came across this list the other day on the internet by Liz Campanille , 5 Signs He's Not the One.


It’s a tough realization, gals, when the man you thought was the One turns out to be a zero. I’ve been there, and completely understand how difficult it can be. As a former dating veteran, I want to give you the insight you need to move on if you’re with the guy who’s not the “One.”

The first question I’d ask was, “What constitutes a deal breaker?” That’s always going to be a personal preference, but some signs can’t be ignored. Aside from obvious things like abuse (be it emotional, mental, spiritual or physical) which is not acceptable now or ever, here are five signs that you need to get out of Dodge.

1. You can’t trust him. Trust is the cornerstone of any relationship, and without it, there is no relationship to be had. The concept of trust permeates every facet of any partnership with two people, most significantly in romantic ones.

Trust can cover many types of behavior, including doing what he says he’s going to do, keeping promises, showing up, and following through. These are all important actions in the dating dynamic. In a galaxy far away, I dated a guy who was always shifty and vague when we made plans. This made me not trust him, and as it later turned out, he was validating my fears with his infidelity. In a word… next!

2. He brings out the worst in you. Any man who seems to thrive on conflict or discord within your relationship is bad news. If he’s anything less than compassionate and supportive, chances are he’s not into the relationship for anything other than drama. The point of a romantic relationship is to love, support and nurture each other. (Contrary to what reality shows might tell you, they’re not about drama, hurt feelings, conspiracy plots, or psychologist bills.)

Life is too short to deny yourself the love and support you deserve. Again, if this is happening, move on!

3. You have no shared interests outside the bedroom. Ah yes, the thrill of exploring the sexual landscape in a new relationship is exciting and fun, but it’s important to cultivate interests outside of sex. If there are no shared interests, that could be telling. Without common interests and goals, the relationship will become one-dimensional (which leads to “stifling,” which leads to “it’s over”). If he’s only interested in the physical part of your relationship, you have to look at that closely. Chances are that you’re limiting your own range of experiences, and you can do so much better, girlfriend.

4. You have to make excuses for his behavior. If he’s saying or doing things that make you uncomfortable, he’s definitely telling you something about himself and his character. Different people have different ideals and comfort levels; one person’s “acceptable” can be another’s “unacceptable.” If your man is behaving in ways you find unacceptable and putting you in an uncomfy place, look at that. As Grandma Ellie used to say, “Actions tell the tale” – and, honey, they do.

What are his actions telling you? If they’re anything less than supportive, ethical, fair and fabulous, move on!

5. He’s not available. Do you notice that personal ads never advertise: “Cold, unfeeling bastard seeking doormat girlfriend to annoy?” They don’t, because everyone who says they’re out to find a relationship is out to have a relationship, right? Not necessarily, my fair sisters. Sometimes the unavailable come dressed up as available, reasonable, sane men and try to drive us insane with their inconsistencies. Don’t let it happen to you. Again, listen to the words he’s saying and cross reference with what he’s doing. Is he pining for you all day only to avoid your calls that evening? If the actions and words are out of whack, you have to take a good, honest look. Does he say he’s ready for a relationship only to do and say things that alienate you?

Be fearless! Know that if “he” isn’t the One, the Universe will provide. Trust and believe: you’re hearing this from a gal who’s been there. I know from my own experience that letting go of the game-playing boys-disguised-as-men freed my time, and I found the One. I wish you the same happiness and success!

Happier Life

Thursday, August 4, 2011




My life is defiantly not perfect. I have my good and bad days. Sometimes I feel overwhelm when "BAD" things start to happen back to back.

Yesterday I had to get four new tires and there were not in my budget. On top of that I got a speeding ticket about three weeks ago and the cost is $200. I broke a table lamp while cleaning up and my dog dug my carpet up.

I know that I am blessed, but when things start to go wrong in my life I do get a little depressed. I know that I can sit here and think of all the negative things that has happen, but know at the end of the day ..... I am truly blessed.

Day 9: Weight Loss

Wednesday, August 3, 2011




It's day 9 and I have only lost 4.6 pounds. I expected to have lost more than that, but I have been feeling a little sick lately. I have no energy at all. I need to go get my B12/6 shot. In the mornings for breakfast I normally have 2-3 boiled eggs and 4 slices of turkey bacon. Lunch I have a protein bar or sometimes nothing at all. Dinner I will eat a P & J sandwich or have 5-6 buffalo wings.
