Please mom I want to go home, but they won't let me go, please mom I want to go home!
I am feeling terribly homesick today. I am stressed and sad and I want to go home. I feel I have grown a bit being out here on my own in the great big world. I am heading towards my ultimate job being a photographer. My daughter is doing well in school and for the most part is happy. Will is doing great and enjoying his job. Me I want to go home. I just can't afford it. I miss my mommy and daddy and sister and niece and nephew. I miss my aunts and grandma I miss the good old USA. I want to go out at 10 o'clock at night and find something open. I want to shop at a superstore and get everything I need at one stop. I want Taco Bell. I want well... I want my family. It's been 7 months since I last stepped foot on my homeland and believe it or not I miss it. Australia is beautiful and for the most part the people are great and caring. They seem to genuinely love their country. The landscapes are stunning and the oceans are amazing but I miss Pittsburgh. I miss the rolling hills and the sweet little creek that runs behind my parents home. I MISS WALMART. I miss going to my mothers home for dinner and drinks. I miss sitting in her little pool and playing games with the kids. I just want to go home. I miss home.

I am my mothers daughter. I have inherited her ability to debt collect. I wasn't sure it was something that was passed through the genes but apparently I was wrong. Perhaps its like a super power inherited through the womb during my all important debt collecting growth moments in utero. If you don't know my mom you are truly missing out. She is 5 foot nothing and full of beans. She use to debt collect when she was pregnant with me. Were talking repossesing cars, beds, houses you name it. She was good at it. Apparently people like to have there stuff taken by a cute, short, little Italian. I have began debt collecting at work. For the past three years no one has wanted the job and it has gone undone for way to long. The strangest thing about all this is I like doing the work. I don't mind calling people up and saying hey you owe us money when can you pay up? I am my mothers daughter.

Today I went jogging. Yes you heard me right I jogged. I went out for 25 min and 12 seconds and actually jogged for at least 10 minutes of it. So now I have been going to the personal trainer for two weeks and have started to add Veggies and fruit. I even made Lamb with White wine, garlic and lemon with an herb rub. Plus steamed veggies. I head for the gym again tomorrow so perhaps I will even lose some weight this month.

Tanya and I went to see this movie Friday night and came out feeling a bit empty. I am a hopeless romantic and I wanted to see a Hollywood ending. You know where everyone walks into the sunset arm and arm. Well if that is what you want then you want another movie. I left feeling empty and unfufilled. The arguments were true to life and you could see yourself in the characters. The man argument of the movie is why won't some men do things for their partners just because there partners want to do it. Like sitting in a motorcycle shop for hours in the cold just cus that's where the man you love is. Why can't he inturn go to the arts festival just because you love it? Well in my world that just doesn't happen. My favorite quote from the movie is

I'm sick (said through sniffles). I have been so for around a week. My head hurts, my throat hurts, my nose hurts...! Lets just say I am going for a whole body ache! I can't seem to shake it. I fear it may be permanent. Where does all this snot come from anyway? I can blow and blow and blow and it seems to do absolutes no good what so ever. On other news I have just been informed that The Greater Pittsburgh Renaissance Faire has closed its doors for good. There will not be a thirteenth season. On that note I am going to go and blow my nose!

I have decided to give a bad habit a chance. No I am not taking up drugs or alcohol! I have ADD and we have addictive personalities as it is. I am taking up caffeine. Why caffeine well I am rather tired and I have a sluggish metabolism. So I am going the way of the coffee. So here it goes. Cross your fingers that it doesn't make me to crazy!
