Well after 5 1/2 years we have some good news to share The nodules in both of my lungs have started to shrink and my liver is stable (which means no change since April). My family and I want to THANK YOU for all your continued prayers and support. DebbyShare's mood: VERY HAPPY! =D -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Unfortunately, in 2009, Debby lost her battle to cancer. I was able to say my final goodbye during her funeral. Deb, you will be forever remembered in my heart. Thank you for giving me a new perspective on how precious life can be. One Shot share-bare loves you. You will truly be forever missed.
(Brief description about Steve. He is a gray haired Caucasian older male probably in his mid 60s with a tall and very very slender frame. He's very quiet, polite and quite a perfectionist. Whenever Jason and I would fubar, he would just be quiet about it. He's one of the people that when they are disappointed or upset, no words or facial expressions would be necessary. Pretty scary and intimidating. He kind of reminds me of a grandfather you would hate to piss off.)Our first task was installing insulation pads alongside of a staircase of a 3-story townhome. Insulation is like HELLA itchy. Second task sealing in the insulation with pieces of 2x4's. That was the hardest job. Long after, it was finally lunch time. We had ToGo sandwiches, chips and soda. Yummm! Exactly 30 minutes later...OK - breaks over! I headed off to meet up with Steve. We had to finish off the sealing of the insulation panels. The job was getting more difficult as we were approaching different types of piping inside of the walls. It was very critical that I not nail in my thick 3-inch carpenter nails through the wood and puncture the pipes or else I'm dead meat. He then handed me a power drill and says, "Go ahead and drill your holes into the wood. It'll be alot easier for you to drive the nails in." Ummmmm....Sir, I've never used a drill before. Help! I didn't tell him because, I didn't want to disappoint grandfather. I acted like I had previous experience. I think I played it off pretty darn well. It was sooo fun! I was scared at first but it was fairly easy. Once we were done with the second task, third task was adding more wood to the banister. I have no idea why. Something about dry wall. I didn't bother to question. Final task. Clean up the second floor. This involved clearing up wood chips, wood planks, pieces of insulations, empty water bottles & soda cans, nails, pieces of broken glass, dirt, and saw dust, etc. Gosh, the crew that came in the day before us were slobs! I was sweeping up and sneezing at the same time. Poor allergies. That concluded our work day. I had a good time. I was tired but again it feels good to help a good cause - Building affordable homes for low-income families. It's a indescribable feeling! Oh - I forgot to add. Remember how I mentioned it was the first time I operated a power drill? Well...it was also the first time I literally handled a drill bit. Note to self - Never grab a recently used drill bit by its head. LOL! Jason was switching the drill bit to a screw bit. While he removed the drill bit, he handed it to me with the tip out there for me to take with my fingertips. I immediately took it away from him. OMG! It was HOT!! I screamed and he laughed. The funny part was that I never let go! I was scared that I'd drop it into the pile of saw dust and lose it. I didn't want to get Steve mad... LOL! I should've known. Jason is such a prankster. But, Steve didn't laugh. Gosh - he must not have a sense of humor. That or he really REALLY took his job seriously.

You've hit the monthly usage limit. Upgrade to LAUNCHcast plus to listen with no restrictions.Nothing is for free anymore. I've been a devoted listener of LAUNCHcast for more than 3 years. LAUNCHcast helped me get through month/quarter/year end close. I'd be boppin' my head anytime some old school song came on. I'd be like, this is the jam...haaaaaaaaaay! (sigh) It was so cool because I was able to customize my radio station by rating the artists and songs. There was even an option called "Never play again". Gosh. What a way to start my Friday. Oh well...life goes on. I'm done venting. Thanks for letting me take it out on you. I'll just listen to Chuey Gomez now on 106.1 KMEL. Hope you have a good day! Happy Friday!

"You learn something new everyday"That saying is so cliche', but AMEN to that my dear! A few blogs ago, I accidentally came across urbandictionary.com via Google. Honestly, it was love at first sight! I'm learning alot of new slang terms. Woohoo! I really can't wait to use them. Here are a few: trill: true and real combined (originated from Texas) australian kiss: just like french kissing but down under (get it?) bare: equivalent to NorCal's slang term 'hella'. lots of or large amount of something (originated from West London) poopular: popular on the outside, poopy in the inside alculate: The act of figuring out the way to get the most drunk for the least amount of money ...And to my surprise LOL!... interesting: Something which arouses no interest at all. Used to politely avoid admitting this, which indirectly expresses your indifference. Sadly, I confess that this term has been overused in my vocabulary. LOL! I seriously thought no one knew the true meaning of it. Oh well. To all my friends & family that may have heard this term come out of my mouth during the act of conversing between one another - I'm terribly sorry. I hope you are not offended. Love you! ;) Gotta love the web, right?

Renee: What are you talking about? (cashiers gives me a blank stare)
share-bare: Dude, it's 10 cents! 7-up is only 10 cents!!
[before I tell Irene to go run to the soft drinks aisle to grab some more 2-liter bottles...Irene and I both take a glimpse at the monitor again...]
Renee: Share, that's the f**ckin CRV, you idiot.
share-bare: LMAO!! ....Oops
[I look at the cashier]
share-bare: Oh never mind. Keep scanning, I'm trippin'. I'm sorry.
Renee: Don't mind my stupid sister. LOL

[Dating reminds me of the game MONOPOLY. Your main goal is to get Boardwalk. Everything is going well, and then all of a sudden you get a minor setback. You flip that Chance card over that says, “Go to Jail. Go directly to Jail. Do not pass GO. Do not collect $200”. Next, you are blind-sighted by your opponent who takes over and gains possession of Boardwalk. After that, everything just goes downhill and you say f**k it! I’m done!
As a single woman in search of good company, I tend to question myself:
“How come no one ever asks me on a date?”
I think I may know, but I’m not going to make any assumptions. Let me tell you what really is bothersome about the initiation of dating. Honestly, why do we seriously need to rely on the World Wide Web (i.e. match.com, eHarmony.com) to locate a date? I find it absolutely hysterical that our generation’s last resort is “How to Get a Date” via wikihow:
“Step 1: Find Someone You Like Step 2: Make Contact. Start a conversation…”
Wow! I’m not even going to attempt to give you Steps 3 through 9. Are we really this dumb and idiotic? The point I’m trying to get at is that most of us single and available men/women are no longer self reliant on our own actions. The fact that we seek information elsewhere other than within ourselves is very sad and quite disappointing. We have come to the point of emptying our pockets to pay subscription dues. For what? To fill out a computerized compatibility test? What cracks me up is that we will attempt to retake and alter these tests over and over again until we are satisfied with the results we want to see. I’ve done it and I’m sure a few of you have as well. What a waste of time, right? Are we just getting too lazy to think for ourselves? Are we too lethargic (<—-I feel smart using that word) to even go out, mingle, and socialize with the opposite sex? I confess. I myself have fallen into this category. Therefore, it’s time to make a change for the better. Besides, I’m sure we can find more practical ways to spend our taxable dollars. Wouldn’t you agree?
BTW – Don’t start complaining to me how hard it is to meet people. That is just plain bullsh*t. We all know that getting a date can be very complicated but at the same time, it’s simple common sense. Back in the 1950’s, it was unheard of for a woman to ask for a date or to initiate the dating process. The men were supposed to do all the work. In the February 1959 issue of Seventeen magazine, a young man wrote:
“Growing up has taught me one thing: there is an infinite number of ways by which a boy can meet a girl. I’ve also found that once he meets a girl — and becomes interested in her — a boy must indulge in a sly, artful practice called pursuit.” (72)
Nowadays, we women need to recognize that it’s OK to make the first move. Let’s practice the women’s equal rights movement that our fellow ancestors fought so hard for back in the day. No more excuses and definitely no more putting all the blame on men.
To both men & women – I’m not going to list any rules that you should follow because you are all different. I’m not going to tell you the best place to meet someone. I’m not going to tell you how you should ask someone on a date. Lastly, I’m certainly not going to tell you what pick-up lines actually work. All I’m trying to communicate is that we need to just be ourselves and if you see someone of your interest – go for it! Don’t even think twice or hesitate. Dating is a pursuit, so go on girl/boy! Chase it!
p.s. Call me! ;)]

Diva: Mel come take a look. share-bare stand up! Stand up so we can see your beautiful outfit
share-bare: No! It's not a big deal. You guys swear I've never worn a skirt before.
Diva: Stand up!
Mel: Yeah, stand up. I want to see.
share-bare: You guys are trippin. I wore a skirt last year! Go away! (JayJay then comes by over to my cubicle)
Diva: Girl, I wasn't here last year
Mel: Neither was I. Come on, let's take a look.
Diva: I want to see what kind of skirt you're wearing.
share-bare: No, GO AWAY! It's just a plain old skirt. It's old.
Diva: Oh come on...let's us have quick peek. At least turn around
share-bare: Nope, I'm not ever getting out of my chair today
JayJay: What's going on over here?
Diva: share-bare is wearing a skirt and she won't get up so we can see!
JayJay: Oooh, I think someone has a date today!
share-bare: Shut up, JayJay!
JayJay: share-bare, I think we need to go and walk to Starbucks. Let's go.
share-bare: Later, JayJay. Now go away people. It's not a big deal. I'm wearing a skirt. Whoo hoo.
[They all laugh]
Diva: She's looking so cute.
Mel: Yeah, you look really nice.
Diva: Well, I just want to say that you look very pretty today.
[They all walk away giggly. One minute later,like literally, my phone rings and I answer]
share-bare: This is share-bare
QB: Hey, can you come by my office and check out this invoice?
share-bare: What invoice?
QB: Some invoice John sent to PAY. I'm confused. Can you come by and take a look.
share-bare: Sure, I'll be right there.
[I hang up the phone. I get up from my chair and walk to her office. As I'm walking in, QB tells me to come take a look at her monitor. I walk closer to her and out of no where, Diva and JayJay pop out from behind her office door]
Diva and JayJay: "GOTCHA!" (LOL)[QB begins to type into her Outlook calendar]
QB: Damn I good! (LOL)
share-bare: I HATE YOU GUYS!! IT'S NOT A FREAKIN BIG DEAL. I'M JUST WEARING A SKIRT. YOU SWEAR I'VE NEVER WORN A SKIRT BEFORE.
QB: Honestly, this is the first time I've seen you with a skirt.
share-bare: I wore one last year. It was a black pencil skirt, I think.
QB: No, you didn't. I would've remembered.
JayJay: I don't know - A skirt AND heels. Someone's definitely got a big lunch date. Who's the guy share-bare?
share-bare: I don't have a date! It's gonna be hot today, so I thought it be nice to wear a skirt. Simple as that.
Diva: Hmmmm, date with a dude at Subway for lunch today?
share-bare: Whatever, you guys are horrible.
QB: I'm going to log this into my calendar.
QB: Today, share-bare wore a skirt to work.
share-bare: OMG - Back to work! I'm never gonna wear a skirt EVER AGAIN!
She clicks the 'Save' button and turns to me and smiles! I just shake my head with total embarrassment and walk away.

"Oh Well, life goes on...."So of course I google the lyrics to this wonderful song just in case you, my lovely readers never heard of it.
I'm wiser now I'm not the foolish girl you used to know So long ago I'm stronger now I've learned from my mistakes which way to go And I should know I put myself aside to do it your way But now I need to do it all alone And I am not afraid to try it on my own I don't care if I'm right or wrong I'll live my life the way I feel No matter what I'll keep it real you know Time for me to do it on my own Yeah yeah, mmm, yeah yeah It's over now I can't go back to living through your eyes Too many lines And if you don't know by now I can't go back to being someone else Not anymore I never had a chance to do things my way So now it's time for me to take control And I am not afraid to try it on my own I don't care if I'm right or wrong I'll live my life the way I feel No matter what I'm gonna keep it real you know Time for me to do it Oh I start again go back to one I'm running things in my way Can't stop me now, I've just begun Don't even think about it There ain't no way about it I'm taking names, the ones of mine Yes I'm gonna take my turn It's time for me to finally stand alone, stand alone I am not afraid to try it on my own And I don't care if I'm right or wrong I'll live my life the way I feel No matter what I'm gonna keep it real you know It's time for me to do it See I'm not afraidI'm taking a friend's word of advice: KILL THE NOISE! Let's move on, shall we? Life goes on.....
