Make Me Smile
Mood:  amorous
Now Playing: "Make Me Smile" by Chicago
Topic: Matt is Awesome

For my baby! I love you with all my heart, body and soul...TO US!!!

Children play in the park, they don't know
I'm alone in the dark, even though
Time and time again I see your face smiling inside

I'm so happy that you love me
Life is lovely when you're near me
Tell me you will stay make me smile

Living life is just a game so they say
All the games we used to play fade away
We may now enjoy the dreams we shared so long ago

Oh my darling, got to have you.
Feel the magic when I hold you
Cry sweet tears of joy, touch the sky

Now I need you more than ever.
No more crying we're together
Tell me you will stay make me smile 

Laughing

Roses from Matt
Mood:  amorous
Topic: Matt is Awesome

Just wanted to shout to the hill tops again for anyone who has missed the obvious when reading my blog, but my husband is awesome. He sent me two dozen long stem red roses in a red flared vase and a heart shaped box of chocolates (creams, truffles, and caramels) for Valentine's Day. He made sure they arrived a day early so I could have them all day on the 14th. Now isn't he just a sweetie pie or what. He also wrote me a poem, and I've pinned that to my stick board next to last year's Valentine's Day message. What a romantic, sweet, wonderful man!

My Baby Is Awesome and I love him clap your hands *clap clap*
Mood:  cool
Topic: Matt is Awesome

Yes, he is!

He came home from work last night to the children and I, tired from work AND yet, he still spent the next six hours playing games with the children!

Everyone sing - Mmmmmyyyyy Baby is so Awsome clap your hands *clap clap*

Okay - I know that can get annoying, I'm just saying, that's how I feel. 

So, this morning I am in a Monty Python mood. So far on YouTube I've watched the Dead Parrot, Spam, Deja Vu, Nudge Nudge, Hospital Machine That Goes Ping - and Argument Clinic sketches. I am in the British comedy mood.

That or I am in an Oscar Wilde mood. Or - I am some other mood I haven't identified as of yet.

Needless to say that I am in a good mood, comedic even. What I need to do about that, I just don't know.

I haven't blogged in a week. Shame on me. BUT, it has been an extrememly busy week. I trained a co-worker this week on portions of my job, working through lunch on both Tuesday and Wednesday since hers hours are 9 to 2 and if I didn't work through lunch with her I would loose that time and probably wouldn't be able to get her back doing what I needed her to do.

Thursday, I went to an all day training on OMB Circular A-133 Single Audits for Non-Profits, States, and Local Governments. The teacher was an anal retentive loon as most auditors I have ever met are. That doesn't mean I didn't learn anything from the nutjob, because I did, but still, I did not like the guy at all.

Friday, well, I had the day off work and spent it with the children. Michelle and I played D&D together while Kyle played on the computer or read.

Anyway - today, I don't think we have any plans, just hanging around the house. I would like to get more D&D time in, but I don't know if the children would like to. I need to get my skills honed to a sharp edge before Shurree arrives and we have a D&D marathon evening.

Well - this is going to be a short blog today. I am off to play with the children and my husband - who - is Awesome Baby!

My baby is so awesome and I love him
Mood:  happy
Topic: Matt is Awesome

I wrote this huge post about how awesome my husband is an it didn't save...bummer.

Well, in a nutshell, he picked up dinner and a movie on the way home. We watched the movie snuggling together on the couch, and he is planning on taking me to the movies this weekend to see the Simpson's movie and the weekend after that to see the Bourne Ultimatum. Two date nights lined up for two weekends in a row while the children are at his parents house in Pennsylvania.

He is totally awesome. He thinks about me during his day and goes out of his way to do small things to make my life better.

I couldn't be happier with him or my life. He makes every day an absolute joy and I am so utterly blessed to be his wife.  We are so lucky. Our refinancing application was approved. We hopefully get to close escrow next week. It's wonderful.

Thank you powers of the universe for bringing Matt into my life. Thank you for giving me another chance at happiness and fulfillment as a wife and mother. Thank you for the simple happiness and joy I feel in every day that I am with him.

Update on the Ali Babba-ster
Mood:  happy
Now Playing: "Plush" by Stone Temple Pilots
Topic: Matt is Awesome

 Updated August 3, 2003

 

WOW! It has been forever and a day since I updated this website. Now that I finally have the time to do so, let me bring the world up to speed.

 

Basically, I have a completely new life. Yep! I scraped everything and started over.

 

To say that I was utterly unhappy towards the end of my marriage is an understatement. My husband, Mike, well, he wanted to be friends and not have any children. He said he wasn't in love with me anymore, but he still wanted to live with me. NO WAY JOSE! I couldn't be in a loveless relationship without children for the rest of my life.

 

SO, I decided to leave Mike and I did so with a great deal of support from my friends and family.  It was very difficult because I felt like a failure. I couldn't be what he wanted me to be, and he didn't love me anymore. My self-esteem was the size of a dried up pea. I moved into my own apartment. After a great trip to Las Vegas and a fabulous vacation in Kansas, I started to pursue a relationship with a very good friend who had shown some interest in me, but had done little to nothing about it.

 

Well, time passed quickly in 2002. I was in therapy and discovering the me I had covered up and left for dead when I submitted myself to Mike. I say it like that because in the beginning I wanted to do anything to make him love me or please him. That meant suppressing a great deal of my true wants. Well, hell with that now.

 

NOW, I am me and I love it.

 

I decided to leave my career as an Administrator and Grant Manager (acting Chief Financial Officer from time to time) with the Blue Lake Rancheria Tribe in Northern California and move from California to Kansas. Yes, KANSAS! It meant leaving my choirs- The Merry Melody Makers, and the UCC Choir, but it was something I had to do. They all understood and were very supportive.

 

Well, I fell in love with my friend, Matt. Yep. Here it is world...the truth of the matter. Matt fell in love with me, and I loved him in return. It felt right immediately and neither one of us has looked back.

 

My divorce was final November 13, 2002 I moved to Kansas November 17, 2002 leaving California and my former life behind me. Some of my so called friends (like MICHELE) have treated me like the plague since I left and never want to speak to me again. Why I don't know? She said she felt slighted because someone told her that I didn't want to see her when I returned to California to pick up the rest of my belongings in March of 2003. That was a bunch of bull! I never said anything like that, but Michele was a very sweet and very easily swayed person, believing lies that Kim told her about me. Well, whatever. Too bad so sad for her. She wrote me a nasty email saying she never wanted to see me again and really hurt my feelings. Can you tell it pissed me off? Damn straight it did! All I have to say is that those people who didn't want me to leave them in California are WAY jealous that I am so happy...finally. I am grateful for good friends that still keep in touch like Jeanette, Arla, TallChief, and Bruce...and of course Tim and Yarrow in Hawaii. Some people just don't deal with change well. Therapy taught me to stand up for myself and not let others take advantage of me. Some of those I left in California told me that I had changed and was being demanding and bitchy. I took it as a compliment, since they were the ones that kept on asking me to cover for them time and again, and I simply refused to do it anymore. Perhaps they will see that they need some work on themselves.

 

Well, I moved to Kansas, married Matt on New Year's Eve (12/31/2002). We are very happy and looking forward to the future and children together. Matt already has two kids, Kyle and Michelle, and they are both adorable and I love them to pieces.

 

On the career front, I got a job on December 13 for Wichita Public Schools as a Budget Analyst for Grant Funds. I started my job on December 30th and it has been one heck of a ride ever since. I love my job, and all my fellow budget staff members. My bosses, Linda and Ronda are fabulous and inspirational.

 

What can I say? I am happier than I ever thought I would be, and feel more like me than I ever have. Life is fabulous!!!
