Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

Who is this guy, and where did he come from?
He’s run 157 races in the Cup series, but has only won twice in all those races. And those two wins come this season. Two wins in the last eight races. Unbelievable, kid. Truly unbelievable.

I’m not a Ricky Stenhouse Jr fan by any means. In fact, one of the main reasons I don’t like him, is becuase he’s dating Danica Patrick. Don’t like her, don’t cheer for her, don’t give a damn if she wins. BUT, this kid has promise.

Seems like the Roush drivers have figured it out this season. Good for them. Really wishing the Gibbs organization can get their feet on the ground and start getting some wins.

On to Kentucky!

NASCAR - The Halfway Point

We are just about to reach the halfway point in the 2017 season, and can you believe the way the points standings look? Kyle Larson on the top in first? Whaaaat?!? I’d like to thank NASCAR for the addition of the stages. It’s definitely shaken things up a bit, and the races aren’t typically so boring. It’s keeping me on the edge of my seat some weekends.

Let’s talk about a few drivers.

Kyle Busch - I don’t know what is going on with the whole Joe Gibbs Racing team, but there’s definitely something. Kyle isn’t having too much trouble running up in the top 5 or 10, and he’s even won a few stages, but the problem comes towards the end of the race when it really matters. He either gets passed because he stayed out during a caution and doesn’t have fresh tires, or he’s just got a slower car than the leader. It’s frustrating for us fans, and I’m sure even more so for him.

Martin Truex Jr. - This guy. A few years ago I was asking the question, “Who is MTJ?” because he consistently ran in the back and just ultimately seemed distracted by life. Perhaps that was because of his girlfriends battle with cancer. Once she offically became cancer free, his racing changed. He became a different person. He won races. Now he is the leader in stage wins with TEN! This guy will be a strong contender for the Championship.

Ryan Blaney/Chase Elliott/Erik Jones (The Rookies) - Whoa at these guys. These guys are fierce. And they are on a mission to win. Both Ryan and Chase have some big shoes to fill, and they’re doing a heck of a job. Ryan just got his first win, and Chase isn’t too far from getting his first. Erik shows consistency and a LOT of promise. All three of these guys are going to be Championship winners. I promise!

Seeing drivers like Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kasey Kahne outside of the top 16, is frightening. In fact, if the Chase started today, based on points/wins, Clint Bowyer would be out also. How crazy is that?

Stage wins. Race wins. It all adds up. Drivers need to be trying to collect more points if they can’t win races. Fingers crossed some can figure it out.

On to Sonoma….

Friday Letters

It’s Friday. Time to write some letters.

Dear RJ: You’ve been staying at my house for three weeks now, and it’s been great. There haven’t been any big issues, and everyone seems to be getting along just fine. You still have a few weeks to go, and I’m looking forward to spending all that time with you.

Dear Val: I know you’re hurting. I know you’re struggling. And I know you’re trying your best. Just keep it up. Things will fall into place. And if you don’t like how it works out, then change something. Perhaps a major change in scenery is due?

Dear Cashier at Walmart: I was really sorry to hear that you were having such a horrible day, and based on your negative attitude, the day will just drag on for you. Maybe next time try being a little more upbeat. It works wonders, I promise.

Dear In-N-Out: Your burgers are simply amazing. I smile very big every time I get the opportunity to eat one. Thanks for always making me smile.

Dear The X: We had a lot of years of not working together for the better of RJ, but the last few years have been different. Thank you for that.

Dear RJ: It’s been so much fun having you here. It’s been three weeks, and it already feels like it’s just natural. I’ll be sad to see you go at the end of the month, but that’s still two weeks away. More fun until then!

And just like that, the papers were signed.

It’s over. It’s finally over. It has taken ten long years to get to this point, but my divorce is finally over. Spent an entire day in court last week, but it’s finally over. And it’s kind of sad.

While we were sitting in the courtroom waiting to be called up, The X looked over at me and said, with tears in his eyes, “It’s kind of sad.”

He was right. It was kind of sad. But we both ultimately knew we didn’t want to be with each other anymore, and that proved true by the fact that both of us had already moved on to other relationships. It didn’t mean we couldn’t be friends. It didn’t mean we had to stop coparenting RJ. And it didn’t even mean we had to stop talking. But I totally understood what he meant. And as I drove away from the courthouse, I cried too.

I’ve written about this before, in a previous post about the divorce being final, but now that it’s actually happening, the feelings are much stronger. And I don’t think I was prepared for that.

There will always be a special place in my heart for The X, simply because we shared a lot of years together, and have a son together, but, ultimately, I know we’re both glad to be rid of the other. At least in marriage.

Here’s to hoping my next marriage brings on happier times.

Flashback to the 90’s

When I was in middle school, I was very much into music that wasn’t Country. Can you believe it? There once was a time I didn’t listen to Country? I was into Rap, Hip Hop, and even boy bands. Crazy, I know. My very first concert was Billy Joel, which I attended with my parents and some of their friends. The next concert after that, was Michael Bolton. Then Bruce Springsteen. Again, all with my parents. They weren’t the type to allow me to attend a concert on my own, or even with friends without adult supervision, so bands like Bel Biv Devoe and Naughty By Nature weren’t concerts I was ever going to attend. And I just had to accept that.

As the years went by, I attended dozens of concerts, all in the Country music genre, secretly wishing I could go back in time and see those other bands I enjoyed as a preteen, but as an adult.

Then….a Facebook post came across my feed about a concert that was taking place at The Hollywood Bowl in June. It was three artists I absolutely loved when I was growing up, but knew for sure I’d never see. Although Sis lives in another state, I still sent her the post with four simple words “Wish you were here…”. Within one week, she had a flight booked and tickets ordered. We were actually going to be seeing Boyz II Men, Paula Abdul, and New Kids on the Block. It was a dream come true for a preteen.

I have some video from each of the performers, but because of YouTube’s policy about uploading videos from concerts, I’ll hold off on that for now. But know that we had an amazing time.

Boyz II Men shocked the hell out of us by playing a few Lenny Kravitz songs. Didn’t even know those guys knew how to play instraments. Just assumed they only sang and danced.

We were a little skeptical about which Paula we would get. 90’s hip hop Paula, or 2017’s pill popping/alcoholic Paula. To our surprise, we got 90’s Paula. She was so right-on!

The New Kids on the Block were phenomenal. They sang songs that everyone was familiar with from the late 80’s, and 90’s, along with songs from their new album, which were pretty good. They sound just the same, but they look waaaaay older. I did think it was a little strange of Jordan Knight to be rubbing himself and humping the ground right after they sung Happy Birthday to a 13-year-old girl that was in the front row, but whatever. Apparently her mom knows what’s best for her.

There were way more men at the concert than I expected there to be. I assumed they were there to see Boyz II Men, but they were singing along to all the Paula and NKOTB songs as well. There were a LOT of groups of women. Some of them it seemed as if they were seeing each other for the first time since high school. Some were unneccessarily drunk and ridiculous, but most people were nice and courteous and just there to genuinly have a great time.

Sis and I had a memorable evening. We didn’t have any issues with anything, and I can’t wait until the next time we get to experience something from our past.

Lost Cat

It’s Summertime, and you know what that means?

That means warm temperatures, weekend picnics, and trips to the beach. It also means that RJ and Lil’ SS are visiting.

A couple of days ago, RJ and Lil’ SS went to take the trash out. As they were coming back, a black cat caught up with them and started following them. As they were about to walk up the stairs to get to our place (garages are below us so our first floor is actually the second floor), the cat ran past them and beat them to the top of the stairs. He stood there waiting as if he was saying, “Come on!” No idea where the cat came from, but it was determined to come to our house.

At first, he layed outside our front door on the welcome mat. Because I have such bad cat allergies, SS and the kids gave it water and hung out with it. It seemed very tired, as all it wanted to do was lay down. It didn’t have the coat of an outdoor cat, and with ears as clean as they were, I knew this had to belong to someone. This wasn’t a stray cat.

After about a half hour of the kids going in and out the front door, they decided to go ahead and let it in the house. Remember, I have cat allergies, so I was against this the entire time. However, when there are three other people in the house that are voting against you, it’s harder than you think to come out the victor.

After the cat took a really long nap, we decided it best to put it back outside and allow it to go back to where it came from. Everyone was sad, but we knew we couldn’t keep it. It just wasn’t our cat.

About an hour later, SS decided to go downstairs and look around to see if he could find the cat. He walked all around, when suddenly it came wandering out from under one of the cars in a garage. According to the people that live there, the cat didn’t belong to them, so Lil’ SS came down and took the cat back to our place. A few hours later, SS and I found ourselves at the local PetSmart buying a litter box, litter, food, and a matching bowl set that SS just had to have.

The cat ended up staying the night. She slept with Sis most of the night. (Sis is in town for the weekend for a concert her and I went to. Will post details about that later.)

Day 2 - the cat seems to be very comfortable. Used the litter box during the night, and ate quite a bit for breakfast before using the litter box again. I think it’s safe to say she’s happy.

Day 3 - she snuck out the patio door when SS went to water one of the plants. She jumped up onto the ledge and acted as if she wanted to jump down, so when SS left for work, we decided it best to just let her out. She had a home somewhere else that she was likely wanting to get back to, and we weren’t going to prevent her from doing it. What if there was a little girl crying somewhere because her kitty is gone?

About 20 minutes later, I decided I’d go for a little walk around the area she originally came from. I looked all around, but never saw her. I went ahead and headed back home, but when I reached the stairs to our place, I saw this at the top…

So, she’s back at our house. The kids keep a good eye on her, so she doesn’t do things like this…

For now, we have a cat living with us. And we’ve named her Ebony.
We will keep an eye out for signs advertising a lost cat, but until then, she will get a lot of love from us.
Okay, maybe from SS and the kids.

Week 6 - Martinsville Speedway

Last year, Kyle Busch dominated at Martinsville Speedway and swept the weekend with wins in both the Camping World Truck Series and the Monster Energy Cup Series. This year, he led 274 laps but came up short on the final lap. The win went to Brad Keselowski (PUKE!), who scored his very first Matinsville Grandfather clock.

What do you guys think about Ryan Blaney? I didn’t expect that kid to do so well this year, since it’s his first year as a full time Cup driver, but he’s sure proved me wrong. That kid can drive. He’s aggressive enough to get the nose of his car where he wants it, but not aggressive enough to make the win. In time, kid. In time.

And since we’re talking about rookies, how about Erik Jones? What ya think of him? He drove for Kyle Busch, so he has definitely learned from watching him. I expect to see this kid in victory lane before long.

Martin Truex Jr has had an amazing couple of years. That guy has definitely got some win coming his way. Hopefully!

Kyle Busch has come up from P10 to P6 in the standing. Great news! Always moving forward.

On to Texas…..

Week 5 - Auto Club Speedway

Whoa! It’s the end of March and I just realized I haven’t written anything this entire month. Oops!

Auto Club Speedway…

My Mom and her boyfriend came into town for six days, and during that time, we played around at Auto Club Speedway, inside the garages and the pits.

SS had to pee while we were walking around the garage area, and ended up peeing with Elliot Sadler, Erik Jones, Joey Logano, and Chad Knaus. So, in case you ever wanted to know, the bathroom in the garage area is the place to hang out…LOL!

Mom got to meet her most favorite driver ever - Elliot Sadler

Then, she got to meet her second favorite driver - Brad Keselowski

My Mom was in heaven during these two days of racing. She got signatures from eleven drivers, one Crew Chief, and one team owner. The weather was beautiful, so that made it even better.

SS got to play on the track before the race…

…then we stood in front of Driver Introductions, and got this great photo of the driver who swept the whole weekend - Kyle Larson!

 

Full panaramic photo from our seats…

Such an amazing weekend. On to Martinsville…

Tearjerker Tuesday

Have you heard of this show? Do you watch it? If you haven’t heard of it, or have but just haven’t watched it, you need to drop everything you’re doing after the kids go to bed tonight, and watch the first episode. I promise you won’t want to stop. It will have you hooked like no show ever has. It tugs at heart strings, and hits nerves that vibrate down to the very core of who we are as human beings. There hasn’t been one single episode that I haven’t been able to relate to in some form or another. Simply put, it’s amazing!

I had seen a few friends posting about how emotional an episode was one night, and another posting about how connected they were to the characters. It peeked my interest, so I went ahead and watched the first episode one day while SS was at work. I couldn’t believe the number of times I cried during those 45 minutes. When SS got home that night, I mentioned it to him and within a few minutes, we had it on the tv. And yes, SS cried a bunch.

The crying isn’t always because it’s sad. They’ve done an amazing job with telling a story and creating a feeling that the person watching is somehow engaged with this family. As if they were their own. It’s personal. I catch myself smiling a ridiculously large grin when something great happens, while almost simultaneously crying because something bad happens to someone else. It’s a crazy mix of feelings and emotions that you’re thrown into episode after episode, but it keeps me coming back for more.

A new episode airs tonight on NBC. We can’t wait!

If you watch, which character do you relate the most to?

Change

I’ve written about change so many times, it’s hard to count. However, since this program keeps track for me, the number is eleven.

Another big change has made its way through our home, and although SS and I are not thrilled about it, I can tell you that the feeling of wanting to kill myself every morning, has gone away. I finally sleep peacefully at night. And that in itself, makes me happy.

When I decided to go back to school, it was because I was in a job I no longer enjoyed and wanted something different out of life. I set out in search of something that made me happy. Something that would make me feel like I’d finally made it in life. I went back to work knowing that it would be temporary and I’d be able to leave on my terms. Then school closed and I suddenly felt like my option to leave was gone. The feelings I was having, were not what I wanted from my future. The crying, the anxiety, the overwhelming feeling of not being good enough for them, just got to be too much, so I walked away.

With the exception of money trouble now that I don’t have a job, I’m so much happier and don’t regret walking away. I’m sure my bosses were not happy with me, and probably would like to yell and say a few words to me, but they too will move on, and we will all be better people for it.

The struggle to find a new job will be stressful, I have no doubt, but I will make it through this, just as I have made it through other things.

Change. It’s just part of life.

Quote For Today…

Whatever you feel, matters only to you.
Whatever you do about it, matters to the world.
Your life, and your relationships, are a sum of your choices and actions.
Meatloaf is just an excuse to serve a giant, bunless hamburger.

Marriage.

“Marriage is harder than parenting. We have this inept and unconditional love for our children that is just there. Marriage is work. You must reinvent and change as time and life changes you, and you must do it together as one. Really, it’s a very long three-legged race on a rocky trail. Marriage is compromises beyond your imagination. Marriage is forgiveness ahead of pride. Marriage is humbeling. Marriage is a beautiful privelage and should not be taken lightly. Be honest with yourself before taking the leap. Its not a leap of faith…this is a concious choice. There should be no doubt, no uncertainties, no banking on potential. Marriage is part of who you are. It’s a sum of two people. You should move, act, and behave as one. Marriage should be the most unselfish thing you do, besides being a parent.”

This quote came from a blog post of a friend. It speaks volumes to what I’ve been feeling lately.

Over a week ago, The Ex and I signed the final divorce papers that will officially end our marriage. It’s been a very long ten years waiting for this moment, but it’s finally here. The papers have been sent off to the judge for signature, so in six to eight weeks, we’ll get them back and be officially divorced. It’s the greatest feeling ever.

So why do I feel so afraid? Why do I suddenly feel vulnerable and naked?

The first person I dated after The Ex and I split up, was Jeffy. No matter how many years we spent together, and how close we got, there was always a safe barrier that stood between us. It was my marriage. I was still legally married in the eyes of the law, so knew that our relationship could never turn into anything more concrete. I felt that same sense of safety from that barrier once SS and I started dating. Now that my barrier is gone, I feel a little scared. I feel that I don’t have anything holding me back anymore, and the thought of possibly getting married again some day, scares me.

SS and I have been together for three years now. In those three years, we’ve moved in together, taken vacations with each others families, contributed to each others children, and created a life intertwinded with each other. It’s a life we have created together, through a rollercoaster of emotions, both good and bad.

Unquestionable love. Compromise. Forgiveness. Unselfishness. All the things of which a marriage should be. And all the things I’m scared to completely give in to.

As I walk through this new chapter of my life, I hope that my fears aren’t so overwhelming and that I learn to embrace the vulnerability of being divorced.

 

Three+ weeks

 

Twenty-six more days until the Daytona 500. Are you excited for another year of racing? Are you excited to see your driver climb into their car after being out for a few months?

What do you think about the new race format?

Let’s get this chat going for the new season. 2017. It’s bound to bring some amazing moments, and where better to talk about them than right here?

He Knew I Was There

Faith. I struggle with it. Believing there is a higher power, is something I’ll always question. Eight very long years of catholic school, and two additional years of religion classes to make my Confirmation, left me with a bad attitude towards the church. And twenty-three years later, I just can’t say that I believe any more than I did when I was attending.

Today, I had a brief moment to stop and talk to two people I haven’t actually spoken to in more than sixteen years. As I told them both all the good and bad things happening in my life, a little Earthworm came out from the grass and started circling my grandfathers name.

When my grandfather was alive, he was obsessed with gardening and making his flowers the most beautiful in the neighborhood. He would pick fresh ones every week and give them to my grandmother to put in her kitchen window above the sink where she did dishes. When there were too many flowers, he would give them to people walking down the street. Women walking with kids, men walking dogs, the mailman. Anyone that would walk by, he would offer flowers to. He would light up like a flashlight when people would comment on how big and beautiful they were. He was just so proud.

But with gardening comes worms. Lots and lots of worms. I remember him showing me them and trying to teach me that they weren’t “gross bugs” as I so lovingly named them. They were just there doing their job. A very important job.

Was it a coinsidence? I don’t know. I’d like to believe that he knew I was there and was saying hi to me, but the skeptic in me, thinks it just might have been the heavy rains that brought out Mr Worm. I saw no other worms as I walked along the grounds, but who really knows?

**As a side note, every single headstone around this one, was covered in mud and sitting water from all the rains we’ve had recently. Why was this one spared?

Happy New Year

Another year has come and gone. It’s in the past, and all we have to remember it, are a few pictures and videos, and a possible chance at not forgetting it in my brain. Not likely for me, but a possibility I’ll at least remember everything about our trip to Hawaii.

I haven’t made a New Years resolution in years. Mostly because I always set unrealistic goals for myself knowing I couldn’t follow through with them. However, this year, SS and I have agreed that exercising is an important thing to start doing. We do very little exerising throughout the rest of the year, so we’ve decided to change that. Here’s to hoping we follow through.

I’m also going to go into the new year with a completely different outlook on this blog. I miss writing. I miss sitting down to this computer every day and spilling out my feelings and emotions. I miss talking about the good, and the bad. And I miss the feedback of others. So, in 2017, I vow to write more. And maybe a little more about Nascar. ;-)

What are some of your New Year resolutions?

Road Trip

We spent Thanksgiving in Oregon this year. For the most part, it was a really fun trip. One of my favorite things about SS, is his ability to make sweet juicy lemonade out of rotten lemons.

We drove a total of 2,092 miles in this fabulous 2016 Buick Verano. Most comfortable car I’ve ever driven. I would definitely recommend this car to anyone looking to purchase something new.

Thankfully the rental car had XM radio because leaving at 4am is tougher than it seems. Between Madonna, Right Said Fred, and Roxette, I made it to sunrise without falling asleep.

Thanksgiving dinner at my Aunt’s new house…

 

A trip to Multnomah Falls -

 

 

And what driving trip to Oregon would be complete without a photo of Mt. Shasta?

I hope your Thanksgiving holiday was amazing and filled with a lot of great memories.

The Countdown Has Begun

In just eight days, SS and I will be on the road to our Thanksgiving destination, where we will spend three full days relaxing, eating a lot, and doing fun things with family.

Can’t wait.

…And Then There Were Four

Yesterday’s race at Phoenix International Raceway, proved to be a major disappointment for some, and a big win for others.

With only two spots available, six drivers had to be on the top of their game and have one of the best days of this season. Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano, Kurt Busch, and Denny Hamlin battled for 324 laps before Joey Logano finally took the checkered flag. Kyle Busch’s second place finish allowed him to take the last spot in the final four.

Yay!!

In all honesty, I’m very happy that Kevin Harvick isn’t going to get a chance at the Sprint Cup. He’s my uncle’s favorite driver, and one of my least favorite. His attitude towards his entire crew this year, has been horrible, and although I’m not a fan, I’d be disappointed if I actually was.

I’m not thrilled about Joey Logano being in the final four, along with Jimmie Johnson, but when Kyle Busch wins, it’ll give me satisfaction knowing he took away Jimmie’s chance at a 7th championship. Ha!

My fingers are crossed that Kyle will dominate and put on a fantastic final show.

Favorite Shows

Now that we’re a few weeks into the new season of most television shows, let’s talk about which are our favorites.

Gotham- This show is beginning to get a little more gruesome than I’d like. The extreme way in which they feel they need to actually show someone dying or being killed, is just getting to be a bit much. However, the stories are so great, I can’t help but tune in week after week.
I assumed it would follow the exact storyline as in the original Batman movie that we know (okay, by this I actually mean the Michael Keaton story of Batman. Because, well, that is the best), but I feel like it’s a bit different. SS thinks there’s no way it will be exactly the same, so should we not assume that Barbara becomes Barbara Gordon?

 

The Big Bang Theory- El oh el at this show. Each episode, even after 10 years, still has me laughing out loud. It’s great. I’ve heard people say it several times, that when a show is in trouble, they always bring in a new kid to spice things up. I remember The Cosby Show doing that. I also remember All In The Family doing it. I’m sure there are others, but you get the point.

 

NCIS- This show has me scratching my head. It’s not the storylines, they’re fine, which is surprising after 14 seasons. It’s Bishop. It’s Quinn. It’s Torres. I just can’t get behind them. I don’t like the chemistry between them. Wait, there’s not any. That’s the problem. I don’t know why, but it’s all wrong. Quinn has an attitude that I can’t stand, Torres is too busy thinking about his past and where he was, and Bishop is just not a great actress. She’s not believable. I’ve tried for a couple of seasons now, to get used to her, but I just can’t.
It’s Ducky’s last season, so that leaves Gibbs, McGee, and Abby to make up the backbone of this show we’ve all grown to love. I’m not sure they are strong enough to outweigh the bad acting of the other three before people stop watching.
Perhaps it’s time to just end it? Ugh. I hate the thought of that. Or maybe Gibbs, McGee, and Abby can move to New Orleans and work with the cast of NCIS: New Orleans. I hear they’re looking for a new person. ;-)

 

Scorpion- Great cast, great chemistry, great story lines, great show. No matter what case these guys are put on by Homeland Security, they’re hilarious, informative, and a little strange. And they make it work. Plus, I think having Katharine McPhee on the show, adds a little spice. I remember her from American Idol, and never imagined she would make the jump to acting. In all honesty, I like her better as an actor than a singer.

 

Bull- This is Michael Weatherly’s new show. Most people know him as Tony DiNozzo from NCIS. A little bit of the DiNozzo character comes out once in a while, but for the most part, he’s a completely different person. The show is very impressive, and the cast is fantastic. They’re believable, and THAT is what makes good television.
I’m very curious to see how many different stories and ways they can make their strategy continue to work, so I’ll keep tuning in each week to find out.

 

No Tomorrow- Brand new show about a guy who is convinced that the world is going to end in a little over eight months. He’s hell bent on crossing everything off his Apocolist, and he’s caught the eye and heart of a woman who is definitely not a risk taker. His jumping in fountains and doing embarassing things, leave her questioning his sanity, but when she realizes how freeing and fun these things can be, she makes her own Apocolist and they help each other.
Falling in love, though, doesn’t come without a price when someone wants to try everything before dying.

 

Notorious- Piper Perabo’s new show. Love her!
The media and criminal law have a complicated relationship. The story of a salacious crime is a powerful tool to drive up news viewership numbers, while what's being reported and how it's portrayed can sway public perception of crimes and the parties involved. These facts are far from lost on news producer Julia George and criminal defense attorney Jake Gregorian, who have a relationship built on the ways they can benefit each other professionally. "Notorious" is inspired by true stories about Mark Geragos and Wendy Walker, who also serve as executive producers.

That’s enough from me for today. I could go on and on with other shows I love like, Blacklist, Blindspot, Hawaii Five-0, American Housewife, or How to Get Away with Murder, but I’ll save those for another time.

Did I mention any of your favorite shows? If not, tell me about them.
