I'm BACK in Control of ME!
(I will not be held hostage by a drug anymore)

As most of y'all know, I've been sick for the past 2 1/2 weeks. I have NOT been in control of me. I have felt like I've had an out of body experience. You are probably wondering what I'm talking about. Well, yeppers, I'm going to tell you.

DRUGS - yes I said it... I've been on drugs. These drugs that I'm talking about I STOPPED taking because they made me loopy. Yes, loopier than normal.... I felt like I was coming out of my skin and my nerves were shredded into pieces. So, I decided that I wasn't going to take anymore of these drugs.

The first week I was taking a cough/congestion med called Medent. This drug caused my vision to blur so bad that I could not even see my hand in front of me.... did NOTHING for my cough/congetion. So, I went back to the doctor Thursday and he gave me a drug called X-PECT AT. Now this drug didn't mess with my vision but sure as hell made me feel like I was coming out of my skin. I decided over the weekend that I'm NOT taking anymore drugs.

During this whole ordeal, I'm thinking... "Why do people want to do drugs?" "Why do people not want to be in control of themselves?" This is something that I cannot understand. They may think they are "in control" of them themself, when in fact they are not. It's the drugs that control them.... they DO NOT control themself.

SO...... if over the past couple of weeks, if I've done anything STUPID...i'ts because I've not been in control of myself! I do not like NOT being in control of myself. I am taking ME back and I'M BACK IN CONTROL!

Now onto other topics......

It is very hard for me to believe it but the Tennessee Titans FINALLY won yesterday. It's about time..... and sadly, my St. Louis Cardinals lost to the NY Mets last night. The series is tied at 2 games each... they play again tonight......... GO CARDINALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations to Am's Auburn Tigers for beating Florida!!!! woooooooo Like I've said before, my two favorite teams are Tennessee who ever plays Florida! We had a bye week... Saturday we take on the Crimson Tide of Alabama.... now that should be a good game. More on that later in the week.....

Girls Raised in the South

Two nicely dressed ladies happen to start up a conversationduring an endless wait in the LAX airport. The first lady was an arrogant California woman married to a wealthy man. The second was a well mannered elderly woman from the South.

When the conversation centered on whether they had any children the California woman started by saying, "When my first child was born, my husband built a beautiful mansion for me."

The lady from the South commented, "Well, isn't that precious?"

The first woman continued, "When my second child was born, my husband bought me a beautiful Mercedes-Benz."

Again, the lady from the South commented, "Well, isn't that precious?"

The first woman continued boasting,

"Then, when my third child was born, my husband bought me this exquisite diamond bracelet."

And again, the Southern lady commented, "Well, isn't that precious?"

The first woman then asked the Southern lady,

"What did your husband buy for you when you had your first child?"

"My husband sent me to charm school," declared the Southern lady."

Charm school?" the first woman cried, "Oh my God! What on earth for?" asked the first woman.

The Southern lady responded, "Well for example, instead of saying "Who gives a shit?" I learned to say, "Well, isn't that precious.
(thanks Duckles for the joke)

YEA LEE ANN!! I can't take a lot of meds because they make me feel worse than the illness they are supposed to treat.

And gladly cheering on your Cards over the hated Mets.Just think--if the Cards win it will be the Duckmaster vs. the Duck!

We go to charm school in NY to learn to politely grab them by the throat and lean in close and say "Like I give a F***K"
Well...the charm school is so we don't yell it out in public!
