A New Me: Quit Being the Victim

A New Me: Quit Being the Victim: Petty stuff!  Semi traumatic incidents! The little things in life are often over dramatized over and over again!  Do you know people like that, I sure do...

How will Aly Explode?

As some of you know, I am fan of The Bold and The Beautiful Soap Opera.  When I was a stay-at-home-mom I watched all the CBS Soap Operas, but after returning to work I didn't get to see them much and lost interest (this was before DVR).

Over the years I have watched here and there and stayed caught up the big events for the most part.  However, about 4 years ago I started back watching The Bold and The Beautiful because it is on when I was at work.

This was a good time since Liam had just gotten back with Hope and things were getting interesting!!

((Thinks haven't changed much with the love triangles during these 4 years ... Liam's still flip-flopping))

Steffy's back and him and Ivy seem to be already broken-up, yet they haven't had that talk... BUT Aly is about to spice things up and blow a top!!  I can't wait for some action on here... seems more like love connection that anything else lately.

I don't want Liam with Steffy, I want him with HOPE; but Kim Matula wanted to further her career & wish her luck!  However, I do wish she'd return permanently and blow him and Steffy out of the water!!!!

Rumors are stirring and according to this article ( Hope may make an appearance during Fashion Show week.... Hoping it is to show Steffy how confused Liam really is about who he wants to be with!!

OR.. will she be home because of what Aly does?  Other online spoilers are also hinting of return from Thomas & Thorne as well.

This week appears to be looking intense!!  I am hoping this is all true because I don't want another let down!  Things with Aly has been brewing for 3 weeks now, so the aftermath needs to as well!

A lot of time has been spent focused on sporting the Transgender Community and I hope that EQUAL time is spent reflecting  on her Mental Health (which is a huge problem in the world today)!

Hoping that next week is BIG showdown like the build up has been... and the previews look like it just might be!!!  Check out Monday's Preview and the one for this week coming up as well...

Monday's Preview:

Next week on the B&B it appears that Aly is going to run Steffy down!!!  See preview at

What do you think is in store on the B&B?

You were Born to Stand Out

Tonight I was trying to find an old picture, but since we swapped computers it was gone.  I went to Facebook looking through mine, my husbands, and then my daughter's pictures... This lead me down memory lane! (*tear)

This upcoming school year she will be a Senior in High School.  Wow, where did time go!!??  It was like I was taking a walk down memory lane, seeing pictures that I don't remember ever seeing.  

... and I thought, My baby is growing up.  She will be venturing off into her own world in such a short time.  I'm not an emotional person, but this is so bittersweet.  I can't wait to see what the world has to offer her; she is so smart and I want everything to be great for her!!  BUT we all know that Life throws a few curve-balls and we need to be able to handle it (as best as possible that is).

I've been trying to put together a memory album for her, especially her High School years as she ends her journey through the easiest part of life,  as a reminder to cherish.  This is what really got me looking through her (& a lot of her friends) pictures.  

So many lives changing...  Trying to find there way in what they want to be and how they want to live their lives as they become young adults.  I grown to love many of these kids like they were my own and I'm so proud of all of them.  I want them all to strive to be there best they can be and Stand Out!

This made me think of the  quote pages a friend from My Memories had made for her son whom was graduating from High School.. an awesome scrapbook with Life Advice from a Mother to a Son.

Back when I first started the Life's Weekly Quotes here .. I was lucky enough to get her approval of sharing a few as long as she wasn't tagged.. Didn't want him to see it!  It was such an awesome idea, love it.

As I read what she had wrote to him along the side of the page, she gave him strong, firm, and loving advice that any parent would give, fitting the Dr. Seuss quote perfectly!  Ending with his quote, "Why Fit in, when You were Born to Stand Out!"  

I wish this for my daughter, her friends, and everyone reading this post!!  Be YOU!!  Strive to be the best person you can be, stand out from the crowd, and appreciate life everyday!!
