You know I've come to realize that kicking a habit is somewhat harder than it seems. I see myself as a strong individual...but passive at the same time. I know that doesn't make sense, but trust me when I say that when I'm pushed to my limit, I can hold my own. I guess it's just like everyone says when you tell them your version of how they can "quit", it's always the same line.. "if you loved it like I do, you'd understand".. How true is that statement? Is it possible to be an outsider looking in..and still diagnose someone or help them .. or are you destined to be just that..helpless? Still as an outsider you see something consume another person.. you see problems that it's causing.. you hear all the same old stories of how and why ..and last but not least.. you listen to all the same promises over and over again, just to have them be broken. So..i'm kinda ranting.. but not really..wondering what you can do to make a person see that something is wrong.. or maybe not WRONG, but just not right.. Is that being judgmental? opinionated? hurtful? misunderstanding? jealous? I'm just curious..

Hey ya'll!! I know that the hubby has already posted his blog about the concert tonight..but anyone that knows me knows that I gotta get my 2 cents in. It was soooooooo awesome!! I've been to many concerts in my life, but I'm not sure if there's ever been 13000 people in any one building that I've been in. I have to be honest..I went expecting alot of rednecks and drunks, as concerts have gone in the past, but instead, I found that so so so many families of soldiers or people that have served..and a whole pile of people that were just proud to be American and live in the best country ever. I think the best part to me was Larry the cable guy..and when Sean Hannity sang "the devil came down to Georgia". I can't even begin to describe the overall ambience of being a part of something like that. It was an awesome experience.. I always knew that I was patriotic, but I just never knew how much. I truly am blessed to be a part of something so big and so wonderful as the country that I live in. Thank goodness Im a lucky woman.. and God's dealt me a pretty fair hand. But most of all GOD BLESS THE USA!!!!..and all my heartfelt thanks to all the men and women that serve to make this the LAND OF THE FREE!!!

Guess what my mother's day gift was??? For any of you that have read my previous blogs, you should have a good guess. I got an IFO trainer kit..lime green and royal blue are the colors that I chose. So much for it being a girly plane, but I like the colors. I told the hubby that I wanted to be involved in everything to do with the plane as far as getting it ready to fly and everything. I haven't had the time, but I'm looking forward to working on it and flying it for the first time. I know that the hubby would love for me to get as involved as he is..if for no other reason than to say "I told ya so." You guys wish me luck... and look for me on the flying field...lol

ok, I finally decided what kinda plane that I wanted to buy to be my starter plane, thanks for a few people who read my "girly" thread and responded. I've decided that I'm going to go with the IFO, in either purple and pink, or pink and yellow. I like the things that I've heard about it's durability, and the fact that I can get it in the colors that I want. Maybe after I've learned how to fly that I can move on to something better. I've been out to Hodges Hobbies a few times and I don't think that I've ever seen one. I'm anxious to see how one flies. I think that when I do get one I'll have to make a trip to the flying field when no one else is there, so I won't be so nervous about learning how. I'm not sure if I will have to or not, but I might have to use the buddy box and get the hubby to help me steer. You guys wish me luck! I know that I have alot to learn.

Well I joined RCg last night, mostly as a joke to my husband, who I thought would loathe the idea of me invading his "private time" with his friends, but he truly shocked me~ I'm sure he would tell his "buddies" that he hates me being here, but honestly he just acted like it was the most natural thing, and even invited a couple of people to make me feel welcome. By the way, thanks to everyone that has opened his/her arms to me to make me feel a part of the group I have found that there's some pretty interesting things going on around here, and have enjoyed coming back and checking threads and reading a few blogs.
We always joke that I blame Kenny ( icrashedthecub ) for Jeff getting so involved with the airplanes, and trust me when I say that Kenny is just an easy target. Truth is, the times that we've been to Kenny's over the years and Jeff saw the planes ..I could see him salivating...and smoke coming from his ears. Trying to think of every way possible that he could get involved in such an expensive hobby, but failing every time, fully knowing there's no way we could afford it. Well to be honest with you all, I was sooo irritated when he got his first plane, it seemed like every time he turned around he was spending money, just giving it out, hand over fist..for this or that...or more planes or whatever. I just didn't see the point of working 2 weeks to get one running..and then first flight crashing it to the ground, and having to spend the...Continue Reading
