It's been a while...

And so I will update!! My dog has gotten longer- I swear she has to have gotten bigger. She is too cute. She is very spoiled and can pretend to be high maintenance but so loveable.

I went to the Alabama game this weekend with dad and geeze that game was too close!! But it was a lot of fun. :) Now, I am part of a group that 'pokes' the opposing team's QB the week before gameday- it is a facebook thing. I love it!! real news...oh wait!! I go promoted woo isnt announced until Friday but I was told Monday. I am super excited!!

For now I have gotten myself in a debate on Embryonic Stem Cell research. I find myself in these discussions often.

Here is my opinion, if you care to read it:

I approve of the President's rejection of a bill that would further promote the dehumanization of human embryos and result in further promotion of , in an attempt to legitimize, abortion.

I value all human life. It is my core belief that all life is sacred and I use this as a basis for all my political votes.

Everything Changes

If you just walked away
What could I really say?
Would it matter anyway?
Would it change how you feel?

I am the mess you chose
The closet you cannot close
The devil in you I suppose
Cause the wounds never heal

But everything changes
If I could...... Turn back the years
If you could..... Learn to forgive me
Then I could learn to feel

Sometimes the things I say
In moments of disarray
Succumbing to the games we play
To make sure that it's real

But everything changes
If I could........ Turn back the years
If you could.... Learn to forgive me
Then I could learn to feel

When it's just me and you
Who knows what we could do
If we can just make it through
The toughest part of the day

But everything changes
If I could.......... Turn back the years
If you could....... Learn to forgive me
Then I could Learn how to feel
Then we could
Stay here together
And we could
Conquer the world
If we could
Say that forever
Is more than just a word
If you just walked away
What could I really say?
And would it matter anyway?
It wouldn't change how you feel

I have seen
Too many sad eyes look at me
The eyes that set me free
All the places that I've been

Thank you for
The letters that you thought you wrote in vain
And for
The times you chose to stand out in the rain
And wait
For me

Your words help me to see
A little honesty
In a world that doesn't share
And your eyes
Tell the story of your pain
Severity of your disdain
In a world that doesn't care

So thank you for
The letters that you thought you wrote in vain
And for
The times you chose to stand out in the rain
And wait
For me

You understand my pain
From this I gather strength
In that we are the same

So thank you for
The letters that you thought you wrote in vain
And for
The times you chose to stand out in the rain
And wait
The life I live would never be the same
Without you here

That's all for now...Everything Changes is one of my favorite songs now. It just fits....

It's been a while.......

I have been spending most of my time reading and writing recently. I have read four chapters in Ann Coulter's new book and I am addicted. I also picked up True Believer by Nicholas Sparks this weekend. I havent started it yet.

Th rest of my time has been consumed by writing poetry, letters or anything that allows me to be expressive. I enjoy spending the latter half of my lunch at work on a blanket, under a shade tree (half in the sun), earbuds in (MP3 Player turned up) with my pen and paper, feverishly writing. Does it turn out well? Sometimes but not always....some of it is well...crap..but at least I know it..well off to write more and read my book before bed.

A tribute...

Here is a little photo tribute to my cousin and her beautiful family!

He is a little man!!

TA DA! I believe this was Maggie pointing to the movie "Shark Tale" during the song 'car wash.' Either way it is a cute picture!
And here is me, Maggie, Amy, Bentley and my uncle Mike.

Maggie and Bentley sharing a chair and being oh so adoreable!

Here's to many more fun pictures and cherished memories. :)

Dulce Bella

My beautiful dog

While grilling the kabobs outside, my dog Dulce (pronounced Dul-chay like the ice cream) decided she wanted to be part of the action or at least witness it. Here she is staring at me, licking the window and giving me a sad face to get outside...I love my baby girl

Martha Stuart- Maybe not...

Sunday afternoon lunch:

I may not be Martha Stuart but I play a good one. Today, I made BBQ chicken kabobs and steak kabobs marinated in worchestershire sauce (My favorite!) with squash, zuccini and onion. They were wonderful. It was another 90 some odd degrees here. I was so proud of the way the kabobs turned out, I took pictures...yes it is strange but then again so am I...

More randomness- political

Poli Sci major? Yes!

Anyone dare guess my political affiliation? I have to say that I am a republican but first and foremost just plain ole Kim- a conservative. I associate with republicans because they best fit my ideals, morals and vision. I am not a republican because of my parents. I am more political than both of them combined.

Admittedly, I was reading Rush Limbaugh's book "The way things outta be" in 6th grade, but what Poli Sci graduate didnt? Ever since I can remember, I have been opinionated, outspoken and passionately committed to my beliefs. Ann Coulter is my hero. I dont want to hear it. She is the only woman out there- scratch that- the only PERSON out there that will speak their mind regardless of what the media will say about them or what it will do to their career. It is refreshing to hear people express their true feelings and beliefs with no regard to what others will say.

I believe in the freedom of speech. I believe in the 10 commandments. I believe in the right to pursue happiness as long as it does not violate someone else's rights. I believe not everyone is a victim. I believe in personal responsibility- tell me why a man who allowed his mistress to drown (after driving the car into a river) can hold public office and be revered by the media. I believe "America's sweetheart" is a callus, calculating, manipulative woman with ill intent. She uses her exposure in the media to influence people and to bias stories. Pay close attention to those who deliver the news and the verbage they use. You can tell someone is trying to influence you when they say the "so called right to lifers;" they are trying to change the topic from a news story to propaganda. Be careful and listen closely- get your news from more than one source...can you tell I am political??

My number one topic is a 'hot button' issue: abortion. As a woman, I feel that I have no more 'right' to kill a child than anyone else. A person is a person. We can argue over personhood- when it begins and what it is- but that does not matter. It is human. If not, then what is it? It is a being. If not, then there is nothing to kill or abort. All human life is sacred. No child should be punished for someone else's mistake- be it the woman, the man or both. The most innocent form of human life can be killed in its most fragile state. Is it really any wonder that mankind is so violent by "nature". When you teach that life is not valuable, you cannot expect people to respect human life in any stage.

I will get off my soap box. I warned you that I am opinionated. I have an education to back it up so I am not a rambling fool foaming propaganda from my mouth. One day, I will be in a position of public office. I just have not gotten there yet but I'm only 24. I have plenty of time. :)

First Time...

Well, it is my first time 'blogging'. I have attempted a similar activity in High School but abandoned it after much distraction. I tend to lose focus. I begin things and then....what is that over there? Oh what a pretty butterfly...wait what was I saying? Oh yes, I get distracted.

To catch anyone and everyone up to speed, I am Kimmer. This is my life. It is crazy. It is like a rollercoaster- albeit rough at times, dramatic lows and sky-high highs, it is a ride and a half and I am buckled in.

Well, I am up entirely too late for my work schedule-as usual. I am a night owl that has to be at work at 7:30- by choice. I dont know what I was thinking. I suppose the dramatic difference in traffic caused me to make such a wretched decision. So, adieu until next time!


Welcome to my crazy life!!!!!!!!!
