I'm Working!!!! (And I had another David Cook dream).

First off, congrats to me because after eight months of unemployment, I am officially employed. Sadly, it's only a five-month temp position, but it's something. Yesterday was my first day and I still don't know what my job is... LOL! We spent about eight hours signing papers and watching videos about workplace safety. I'm a "clerk" so I know it's something clerical. I have more training today so I imagine I will know what my job is by the end of today's shift.
It's a little strange being back to work. I've spent the past eight months at home on my computer searching for work or concentrating on my writing, trying to make some use of all the free time between job interviews. It'll take some getting used to being out of the house for such long blocks of time.
I'm still on the job hunt. I need something to slide into after this job ends.
Writing will definitely take a hit. I've been so productive these past eight months, but I'm back to squeezing in time, which is harder now than when I worked before, because I'm also getting a business degree through online college courses. I have to squeeze those in before anything else so writing sadly has been pushed aside. *sigh*
Anyway, I'm glad to be working again and earning a paycheck.


On to my David Cook dream.... I dream about that man so much it's frightening. In this dream I was watching TV and there was a little special that came on about him and he and his band were doing a cover of The B-52's song, Love Shack. Crazy, huh? After the end he was talking and some woman yelled out "Bring your sexy ass down here!" which he thought was funny. He actually walked off the stage, asked who said that and then started running toward her. She started running toward him (she was a really big, jiggly, older woman)and you would have thought they'd meet in the middle, but she ran right past him with her hands up in the air and just screaming like crazy. David cracked up and was laughing hysterically and kind of jumping up and down with tears in his eyes. He kept trying to catch her but she was flopping all over like a fish, so excited she was going to get to hug him, yet she was missing the point of actually hugging him.
It was funny. I woke up laughing.

I have weird dreams. I know. At least they make me chuckle.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there. It truly is the greatest job imaginable, and the most rewarding.
It's so strange recalling that there once was a time I wasn't a mother. It feels like I've known my children forever and that raising them is what I was meant to do.

Each of my three children gave me a potted flower they grew at school and little things they made like a refrigerator magnet that said "MOM" and had my youngest's picture in the center of the O. They all made cards decorated by themselves. These are the greatest gifts. It's wonderful getting unique gifts from the heart. I treasure them more than diamonds and gold.

Mr. Man is making my favorite meal today: Fried chicken, pinto beans, corn cakes, macaroni and cheese and fried potatoes.

Gotta love it.

I hope everyone has as wonderful a Mother's Day as I.

God bless!

Legend of the Seeker Canceled? WTF????

Can Twitter save Legend of the Seeker?

Word on the street (or in this case, the internet) is that Legend of the Seeker will not be renewed for a third season due to low ratings.
As an avid fan of this show who knows its mass appeal to fans of fantasy and sci-fi I find this hilarious.
The show gets virtually no publicity and has been tossed around all season from one timeslot to another to make room for baseball on the WGN network, which isn’t exactly popular, yet still rakes in over two million viewers.

The hashtag, #LegendoftheSeeker has made its presence on Twitter today, currently ranking third in trending topics with no sign of disappearing. Fans are uniting to beseech the powers that be for a third show of this incredible show they have failed to properly represent.

In a world where vampires, werewolves, angels and every kind of fantasy creature you can conjure (Supernatural fans will know what I mean) are dominating the entertainment world what sense does it make to not promote a show that has the fantasy element and is as entertaining as this one?

Legend of the Seeker tells the story of Richard, a man who was brought up as a simple woodsman but later finds he is the Seeker, the man who will save his land from the evil among it. Some of the characters on the show include Kahlan Amnell, a confessor. She can tell whether people are lying or telling the truth, and with a touch of her hand she can confess them, making them bend to her will.
Zed is an old wizard of the first order, and Richard’s biological grandfather. He can shoot fire from his hands and perform a variety of spells.
Cara started out as a villainous Mord Sithe, a woman who can use others’ powers against them and serves Darken Rahl, the tyrant who tried to control the world. Now on Richard’s side, she has fast become one of the most popular and complex characters on the show.

Legend of the Seeker airs on Saturdays on the WGN network. Check your local listings for times (and hope they are right) to give this show a try.

Once you do, please consider joining to protest cancellation by joining in on the Twitter trending bandwagon or visit
