Finally. It is over. Mom passed away yesterday at 2:00. Half of the family was there. We got there twenty minutes too late. But that's okay. She went peacefully, they said. Just stopped breathing.
She looks so different. A stranger. Mom weighed about 220lbs. This person is probably no more than 100lbs. So pale. So weak.
The veiwing is Thursday and funeral on Friday. There will probably be about a 1,000 people coming. I wish I didn't have to go.
With one "month" under wrap, here is a current cast list before I launch into the January editions:

I wasn't at Mom's bedside today. I was at our house, cleaning and decorating, pretending that nothing was wrong. I wish I could skip Christmas this year. I'm just not in the mood to deck the halls and ring those bells. I would, however, like to sit in a very dark room and drink vodka.

*note: Characters in green are here on a part-time or recurring basis
Today, I had no work but was left babysitting my younger brothers. Glad I don't work since it's cold and snowing. I hate snow with a passion.
Got to watch my soaps. I'm surprised my 2 yr old brother agreed. Although, he did try and change the channel during Guiding Light.
Loved Days today. Although, I hate that Jack & Jennifer are getting torn apart it's some great acting by Missy Reeves. I loved the Belle/Marlena scenes. They make such a great mom/daughter duo. And of course b
December 2005 Edition – Part 1
*note - Characters in RED denote first appearance.
Recap: The events of my fanfiction begin as if I were taking over the reign as headwriter of DAYS as of Dec 1, 2005. All the events that happen on screen in reality after that have no effect on my version of events. Here is a brief recap of what happened before I start deviating into the direction I plan to take the show:
-Marlena tells John that she chooses Alex, leaving John stunned and ready to fig
Effective Dec 1, 2005, the content in my FANFIC is different than the stories of the real DAYS. That is when my version deviates from the onscreen course.
Each FANFIC update edition will outline a week of story told in point-form notes. Each edition will follow the story progression more quickly than you'd see in real Soaps.
The Cast of my show will start to change. As of Dec 2, for instance, the characters of Laura Horton (Jamie Lyn Bauer) and Carrie Brady (Christie Clarke) enter the c

I've discovered lots of components of this whole blog thing - there are a lot of section, including an "about me" section. I have decided not to fill this section out without user/reader feedback. I'll fill it out in a Question and Answer format. I won't volunteer information about me, but if you ask I'll answer it in the "about me" section. For example:
Reader Question: What is your favourite
THis is my first blog entry.
According to board censorship terms, I have to avoid topics that could be called labelled as follows: inaccurate, vulgar, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, or otherwise violative of any law.
My question, does those same rules apply to the OT board?
I haven't decided what I want my blog to be. For a while now I've been toying with the idea of going back to fanfic writing. For those of you who do not know me, I used to post on the coffeerooms sites un
Wow, I just got new lines for Rockland County and my character finally, finally gets to interact with Arden and Dante (the previous interaction was very short). Roger Newcomb (a member of SON), who's the creator of both Scripts & Scruples as well as Rockland County has done a great job with both shows. I was a little hesitant at first about doing this, but as the weeks go by, I become more and more comfortable.
If you've been following the show, Elijah and Dante don't really get along. No
What a week it's been for me. Some good, some bad. But really bad on the boards. I got myself into a little bit of trouble this past week and while I won't go into it, I feel really bad. I took part in some things that were unneccessary and ended up making things worse. This just hasn't been a good week for me on SON.
To those who may have been offended, I apologize. That was not my intention. Sometimes even the best of intentions come back and bite you on the ass as it did with me. You know
I have always said that I preferred being cold than hot, but my goodness, this is unbearable. Living near (damn near on) the beach is fun, but not when it's cold. The wind chill factor here was like 14 degrees. That's nothing compared to when I was in PA and the wind chill was 5-10 below zero, but still. For NY/NJ to have a pretty moderate winter last year, this is the complete opposite. I wish it would already go ahead and snow. We know it's coming, we just don't know exactly when.
Oh, and o
My brother-in-law, Joe, is such an ass. He is dragging my sister-in-law off to some remote part of the US to help start a church. His church asked him to be part of the group that is going before they realized how sick mom was. The told him that he could back out, but no, he insists that they are going. "If you are not willing to forsake everything to follow the Lord, then you are not fit for the kingdom of heaven."
His wife is mom's oldest daughter. She asked mom how she would feel if
Five year old kids can drive you crazy. They say the worst possible thing at the worst possible time. They mess up the house. They puke in the middle of the night. They tell their school teacher that you say bad words some times. They make up stupid jokes. They think dandelions are more beautiful than orchids. They are unpretentious and bring unequaled joy into my life.
I was sad today. My husband's family is talking about bringing Mom home to die. Loren and I were lost in thought
The more that I think about it, the more it seems that everyone's life around me really, really sucks right now.
I have a friend who is twenty-two years old and is losing his eyesight. He is getting married in January and at the rate he's going, probably won't be able to see his bride. Nobody can figure out what's going on. The did a scan for tumors, there is no tumor. They did a battery of other tests - nothing. Twenty-two years old.
And he's a great kid. Hard worker. Great sense
The in-laws have always been kinda intimidating to me. Loren's mom and dad are firm believers in doing things the natural way. Using butter instead of margarine, feverfew instead of pain killers, no deoderant, and all that kink of things has been their way of life for over twenty-five years. They run an herb shop out of their home and have helped many sick people heal their bodies through nutrition. As far as I'm concerned, when it comes to health, they have got a pretty good advantage over
Sorry, I feel like I was whining. We are who we make ourselves and we can't blame our crappy lives on our mommies and daddies. We can only pick ourselves up make something good out of our lives. Life drops a pile of poop on our heads, it's up to us to plant the friggin roses.
I am starting this blog as an anonymous sketch of my life. I am a mother of three kids and probably the only time I will have to write is late late at night when my baby girl wakes me up and I can't get back to sleep, which is actually something that happens pretty regularly.
Right now my life is quietly crazy. Very ordinary. Very human.
First of all, myself. I'm 25, 167 pounds, an ex-blond, married with three kids. I got married when I was 18. Came home from a two week honey-moon when
Enter The...oh the hell with it.
I'm not gonna rant for long. I'll make this short and sweet. All of my plans for this week of been ruined. I was supposed to go down to Super Soap Weekend and enjoy myself. But no, Ryan can't be happy for too long can he? God damn it, my job decided today to exercise my "on call" clause in my contract due to me being the interim office administrator. Dude, I'm a freakin Executive Assistant, I don't want to run the office. The funny thing is though, tomorrow

Ever hear a song and it reminds you of something that is going on in your life or makes you re-evaluate how you handled a certain situation. Well, that happened to me today. I'm here listening to Carrie Underwood's new album and came across a song called "Starts With Goodbye". Here are the lyrics below.
That song made me so think about my relationship with my ex girlfriend. Obviously I'm still hung up on her because we've been broken up since February 2004 and I
