Tomorrow is my birthday, I will be the big 35. Age doesn't bother me, mentally I feel young and physically I feel good most of the time. i just need to lose some weight. I have put on 55 pounds in the past three years. It makes for low self-esteem. I just love carbs:))

I walked avery to school this morning it takes 12 minutes to walk there and 12 to walk back. I took both dogs with me, they have no walking manners and pull me so I wont be taking both anymore. I try the tips I see on tv. but they dont work for me. Im going to make a pot of ham and beans with the last of my leftover ham I have, my mom used to serve them with fried potatoes so thats what I wil do. I finally have everything out of the upstairs unit:)) On Sunday our 1 and a half year old microwave (General Electric) caught fire so we went and bought a Panasonic Microwave. Justin says we cant buy GE products anymore. One of my favorite black and white classics is coming on today. " A streetcar named Desire" I love that movie and haven't seen it since I was pregnant with my daughter. I love old movies and that is what I want to do tomorrow, just lay on the couch with a cozy blanket and watch good movies. That sounds like a good birthday doesn't it? Have a blessed day ladies.

Your kitty's are so cute:)

My grandma used to make fried potatoes too--very yummy--and my southern husband loves fried anything...LOL:)

I have never seen that movie--I have heard of it of course--I do enjoy old movies though.

Your Friday sounds lovely:))

We had a microwave catch fire a few years ago. My husband was popping popcorn in it, thankfully he was standing in front of the microwave when the fire started. I hate to think about what could have happened had Keith and myself not been home and it happen with one of my sons using it, they would have freaked out.

Hi Dana,
I haven't been around much, my everyday life has gotten in the way of blogging, but I have had you on my mind.
I just caught up with your blog. You have been busy, and have a lot going on.

Love the pictures of the kitties!

Remember no matter what happens in your life to take care of *YOU*.

Oh that IS weird that your microwave caught fire while popping popcorn too! It took me a long time after we got our new one to pop popcorn in it.

I cant wait to get my new flooring. I dont think it will be to hard to keep clean as long as I keep on top of it daily, you know sweeping and such.

Oh and thanks, now I am craving fried potatoes!!! lol I love them with a little onion chopped in with them while they are frying.

Happy Birthday!!! Thirty five is still young. I love the carbs as well....way too much. It's like an addiction.
Ham, beans and fried potatoes, that sounds good. I usually make some sort of soup with leftover ham and that's pretty good as well.
Curled up on the couch watching old movies...that sounds very relaxing.
I hope you have a good birthday. :)

Oh what sweet kitties. I love old movies, but believe it or not I have never watched "A Street Car Named Desire." I guess I need to rent it and soon. Bless you sweetie, you've inspired me. Kathi

Happy Birthday Dana !! I hope this year is the best one yet and may they only get better :)

I wrote an article on natural flea care on the herb blog for you.

We haven't had a microwave in about 3 years and I don't plan on getting one any time soon, tho my son wants one badly for some reason :)
