My Wish for YOU

Hi All,

I wanted to post this wish to you all.....HAPPY NEW YEAR. May ALL of Your Dreams Come True in 2007.

I wont be able to visit each of you individually so here is my wish to you. My brother and I are having a little party for new years...well its my brothers party I am just going to be here. Steve is going to spend the night with my parents. This is the first time he has ever spent the whole night away from me other than being with his father. I guess it is time.

This is the first new years in many years that I can remember doing something other than celebrating East Coast style and going to bed.

The last one where I went out and danced with someone special was Happy New Year 96 -I will remember it fondly for the rest of my life. I did not kiss anyone that night but I danced with a very special person, he will forever be in my heart.

To you all I wish you a Wonderful New Year. Please have fun and BE SAFE.

A Real Man

I would love to meet this man....does he really exist????

Author Unknown:


1.) THIS MAN respects his mother and places God and his family first. He understands that true existence is measured by how much the people around you love and respect who you are

2.) THIS MAN does his best to be a roll model to kids, even if they are not his own, and NEVER to win the favor of a lady!

3.) THIS MAN supports his woman's desire to develop herself, and assists her whenever possible, asking only the same in return!

4.) THIS MAN doesn't expect anyone to walk in his shoes; he lets his actions dictate to others what makes him A REAL MAN.

5.) THIS MAN doesn't Break Promises....EVER!

6.) THIS MAN calls you beautiful everyday because of WHO you ARE!


9.) THIS MAN looks past your past, and asks only the same....I think they call it RESPECT!!

10.) THIS MAN wants to spend as much time as he can with you & won't get sick of you, because he understands that tomorrow is never guaranteed, and nothing replaces the "daily moments" that give meaning to life!!

11.) THIS MAN comes over just to watch movies with you....and just so he can smell you on his clothes during the drive home.

12.) THIS MAN kisses you on the forehead just because.

13.) THIS MAN doesn't tell you what he thinks you want to hear. He tells you what's real, and asks only the same in return.

14.) THIS MAN should be treated like one.

15.) THIS MAN doesn't ask questions when you say you need something...rather does his best to see you get it.

16.) THIS MAN lets others know How He Feels About his Girl....more importantly; he lets his "girl" know....constantly.

17.) THIS MAN doesn't play games, nor take kindly to being played!!!!!!!!!!!

18.) THIS MAN doesn't leave his girl to go and hang out with his friends if he hasn't seen her in a week and then call her at 4 in the morning because he needs some loving. <-----ok, that's just wrong!!

19.) THIS MAN doesn't deny you; he listens to your opinion, and works with you to find the right path.

20.) THIS MAN doesn't look for a way out when things get rough.

21.) THIS MAN Doesn't Judge the book by the cover, but he must be intrigued by the "story".

22.) THIS MAN wouldn't use his friendship card to get what he wants.

23.) THIS MAN knows the difference between a REAL WOMAN and a random girl.

24.) THIS MAN won’t degrade a woman with words nor will he ever put his hands on her in anger. AMEN!

25.) THIS MAN Sends you flowers Just Because it's Tuesday, or because a song came on the radio that made him think of you.

26) THIS MAN strokes your hair when you cuddle because it comforts HIM to know YOU'RE there!!

27) THIS MAN holds the line, and will not tolerate certain "vices" in life.....rather will offer to work WITH you to get through them....unless YOU decide that they are more important than your relationship....

28) THIS MAN will make you soup when you are sick.

29) THIS MAN is NOT for sale, and will not sacrifice his life for the "almighty dollar" because he knows that true "riches" in life are sitting in a rocking chair when your old, holding your wife's hand and remembering the wealth of priceless moments you shared, not catching up on what you missed because you were at work 90% of the time!

30) THIS MAN wants to grow WITH you!

31) THIS MAN wants to hold you Christmas morning, because YOU are the greatest gift in his life!

32) THIS MAN wants to look foolish, simply because it makes you smile!

33) THIS MAN will fight FOR you, not OVER you!

34) THIS MAN asks you to forgive him if he does something to make you upset.

35) THIS MAN holds open your door for the rest of your life because you are a Lady, more importantly, because you are His Lady!

36) THIS MAN chooses to discuss NOT each other the courtesy of acting like adults with your differences.....common ground is ALWAYS within reach!!

37) THIS MAN will do whatever it takes to remind you of the sound of your own heartbeat ;)

38) THIS MAN seeks honesty, and gives the same in return.

39) THIS MAN wants only you to see his vulnerable side.

40) THIS MAN seeks the rest of his life, knows it takes hard work, trust, respect, and communication to cultivate a lifelong love, and is more than willing to embark on that journey.

Is it real or made up?

This is a real word...but if I saw someone use it I would have thought they made it up. Have you ever seen this word used?


flibbertigibbet \FLIB-ur-tee-jib-it\, noun:
A silly, flighty, or scatterbrained person, especially a pert young woman with such qualities.

We discover here not the flibbertigibbet Connolly describes but a serious reader (Goethe, Tolstoy, Proust) who found her cultural ideal in 18th-century France.
-- Martin Stannard, "Enter Shrieking", New York Times, November 28, 1993

He argues persuasively that Millay's reputation has been harmed not only by academics who dread and fear her heartfelt "simplicity," but by the very admirers who wished to promote her as a kind of whimsical flibbertigibbet, a poetical Anne of Green Gables.
-- Liz Rosenberg, "So Young, So Good, So Popular", New York Times, March 15, 1992

Well I am officially on vacation for the rest of 2006. But I am working. Why you ask...well because as I was getting ready to leave last night someone found a problem...and it could be a big deal. Hopefully it wont take long to figure out because I have a date with Steve today. Owell

Other than that things are pretty good. This time of year is always very busy professionally and personally. The power outages just caused that to be ever more hectic. Steve spent the last two days with me at work. Schools were closed because of power outages. And because we were staying someplace else grandma was not close by. We were staying with someone else in the beginning because of the power outages but we had planned to stay with them anyway later.

Its been two years since I left my ex, came home and spent my first Christmas at home with my family. This year my cousin is going through a separation and at this point it looks like its an inevtiable divorce. This professional man decided that drugs were more important that his family of 15+ years. Steve and I are staying with her and her daughter to be a distraction, support and whatever else they need. I remember having to take care of all the crap that you have to do and I remember feeling so alone. I was in another state on my own at least now I can be here for them.

My ex let me know that he is getting another divorce and plans to look into moving up here in a few months. Hes more likely to get married than to move up here. He says Steve needs him and he needs Steve. That may be true but he only feels that way right now because he is in the middle of breaking up his marriage. He will find a replacement for his wife and life will be good again.

Anyway...I hope you are all enjoying your Holiday Season. Merry Christmas!!

Tis the Season

To feel sentimental and so much more. Some good and some not so good. Some wonderful and some sad.

Last week I saw a little concert by some elementary students. They did not do the traditional Christmas songs for obvious reasons, which was fine.
They were amazing, heartfelt and inspirational. It was amazing to watch and hear such little people give such powerful message. It brought tears to those that enjoyed the included.

The general message is that we are all human beings. No matter what color, no matter what religion, no matter lifestyle we are all the same inside. Celebrate whatever you celebrate, cherish what you cherish, worship what you worship and respect others when they do the same.

I wish for peace on earth and good will toward people. All of us.

Went to Snow Flake Lane in Bellevue last week with Steve. We danced on the sidewalk with many others. It was fun and beautiful. Something to see.

Another night Steve and I went to the Botanical Gardens in Bellevue...That was a nice walk too....

Its kinda funny....

It is really kinda funny that "first date" #1 emailed me and the very next day "first date" #2 emailed me. Must be something in the air.

I did respond to both of them. Number 1 also invited me to be his friend on Myspace....Number 2 did that a long time ago. Number 2 said in his email something like this

"its been a long time since I have heard from you Kylee, I don't know what happend."

Gee maybe it was because after we went to lunch, I wasn't interested in anything more than a friendship and he wigged out that I did not call, email every day.

Anyway...I just gotta must be the season.

on a side note:
The box is gone and I never did make the call...maybe someone else did...

What gives...

So I got an email message today from one of my "first" dates during the summer. The message was from the one that I was kinda interested in but felt that he had no interest at all. I have heard from him a couple of times since then but not much and not for a couple of months. So I get this email...basically its like this

"Hey I just got back from a job out of town. Man I work to much. How are you Kylee? I hope all is well."

I mean do guys really just wait months to contact someone that normal or is he just desperate and bored?
