HELLO???

Hello...ello...ello

Is anybody there...ere...ere

Hello...ello...ello

Im alive...ive...ive

Everyone come back...ack...ack

Im here...ere...ere


{ Kara's BRAIN thinking:  Do they all think i have abandon them :(  }

Hellerr...err...err


OK!  I AM here!!!  I PROMISE!  So, most of you know the health, car wreck, stress issues I have had goin on the last 2 1/2 MONTHS!!!  SERIOUSLY...WHEN IT RAINS IT POURS!!!

I am SO SORRY I have been MIA...but I NEEDED to set all things aside for a bit, and GET WELL!  I have felt SO BAD just leaving you all "Hanging", but I HAD to take a lil break from everything and concentrate on getting well, DEstress, TAKE A BREATH and clear my head...Im SO SORRY I have been gone for { what feels like } FOREVA'!!!

Well...I think i am "Good to GO"!

And can I just say:

IF I DO NOT SEE ANOTHER DOCTOR FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE, THAT WOULD MAKE ME BEYOND HAPPY!  SICK OF DOCTORS OFFICES!!! HAD ENOUGH OF THEM LATELY!!!
NO SUCH LUCK!

I have a Drs appointment this morning...HOWEVER...Its just my Annual check up...WHICH... by the way, I HATE!   Because, it involves NEEDLES in my vein, SUCKING OUT MY BLOOD...Uuugg...I HATE NEEDLES!  I HATE NEEDLES!  I HATE NEEDLES!  Im a FAINTER!!!
It ALSO involves him CRANKING me OPEN { In my feminine AREA }  with some sort of metal CAR JACK or the "JAWS" of Life { in such a FRAGILE, PRIVATE area }...Like REALLY?  WHO designed that dang MEDICAL DEVICE anyway???  Had to be a MAN, cuz a woman would have designed it to be made of some sort of  SOFT, Teflon-ish, microwave safe, { so as to be able to be WARMED up a tad } to BLEND with our NATURAL body temperature!  NOT a  FREEZING piece of metal with "Razor" like edges, CRAMMED so far up it feels like its gonna come out our MOUTH!!!  Wwwaaa!!
THEN!  Lets not forget the FABULOUS experience of the EVER so POPULAR, MAMOGRAM!!!
Yeah!  I think that was designed by the same DUDE!  Seriously...let me PLOP your "Bubbies" WAY UP HERE { that stupid machine is up so high, I am LITERALLY on my TIPPIEST of toes...hhmmm, maybe today I will take some Stelettos } and SMASH IT in between the two METAL plates till we just are at the point we think they might EXPLODE!  Uuuuuyyeah!  THATS a BLAST!  Like, why dont you just take me out to the parking lot and RUN OVER my Bubbies with the car tires!  I would LUUUUUVVV to see that man { Mister METAL DEVICE creator }, lets see him PLOP his lil privates up on that "Car Crusher" and SHHMOOOSH his "Fragiles"...Thats actually EXACTLY what I think that machine is, now that I think about it...I think they have gone to the caryard, where they CRUNCH CARS, and just moved one right in the Drs office!  YEP!  That is the LOVELY morning I have in store for me!  ARE YA JEALOUS?!?!
I DO NOT WANT TO GO!  I think I PREFER the Ears, Nose and Throat Doctor...Actually...I DO!

SO!  I have to get ready to go ENJOY { HA! } my morning with my Car Jack CRANKIN, NEEDLE STABBING, Bubbie CRUNCHING Doctor...

HELP!!!  elp...elp...

I will see yall tomorrow for WHASSUP!

Whassup WHASSUP? And, Am I a CAR SNOB...

HELLER LADIES!!!

Its ME!  KARA!
  Do yall remember me?  Im the GOOFY, dorky, dont take myself too seriously gal!
WHEW!  It has been a ROUGH 6 weeks!  For the LOVE of PETE!  I am READY to be 100%!!!!
Im feeling much better!  On the upswing from those DANG shingles!  The car wreck...my hand is still quite sore and my neck is HURTING, but Im hoping that will get better with a little more time!

Let me just tell yall....I am in COURTSEY CAR HAYDES!!!!  OMJaaaaaaaaaayyy!  LOL.....
So, my car { brand new I will add :(   }  the front end is TOAST, so it is in the Body Shop getting a
 "CarLift" and the SUPER NICE guys over at the body shop have given me a Courtsey Car.
  Dont get it twisted,  I am VERY THANKFUL for the "Ride" they have provided for me!
  Because otherwise, I have been STUCK HERE at ALKATRAZ!!!  I mean STUCK!
  So, I am glad to have a way around....
HOWEVER....
The "car",  if you can call it that,  is a LOWRIDER if I have ever driven one!!!
Like, ME THINKS I could NOT rear end ANYONE...
I think this car would just DRIVE RIGHT UNDER the car in front of me!!!
 I mean, like I am 5 feet tall, and when getting out of the car, it is so LOW to the ground,
 my CHIN about hits my KNEES!  AND...
  I get VERY concerned when I hit a bump in the road, that the GRAVEL might come through the seat and SCRAPE/ SCRATCH my HINEY!!!
 OOOHH!
  And the car windows...I have to MANUALLY ROLL them DOWN then ROLL them UP!
I had NO IDEA that they made those Manual window roller UPers and DOWNers anymore!  LOL!
 My son thinks its WAAAY cool!  Me and my daughter...Uuuummm, NOT SO MUCH!  She asked me when she first got in the car, "Mommy, are these roller THINGYS on the car door to WIND UP THE WHEELS and make the car GO?"
{ Like a WIND UP toy car!  Like the ones from SONIC! }
{ OK!  Laughing HYSTERICALLY! }
When I explained they were for the windows, she looked at me like I was CRAZY!
and said "Well...THATS DUMB!"
OH NO!  Are we both "Princesses"?  Eeeekkk!
 Can you get a ticket for driving with a SACK OVER YO HEAD?  Im just sayin!
  I would of course cut out EYEBALL holes....Like is there an actual citation for that???
Really, all I need is a clown costume, clown hair, makeup and all,
then PILE IN about 20 more Clowns and head over to the NEAREST CIRCUS and I AM SET!
 Oooooooooooooooooooooo  Noooooooooooooooooooo!!!
I am seriously, SO LOW to the ground that I LITERALLY TRIED to sit in my daughters booster seat in the drivers seat, but THEN MY HEAD HIT the ROOF!  LOL!  Oh My Gosh!  It was quite COMICAL!
 We were all laughing hysterically!!!
 The car is the size of a CEREAL BOX!!!!  So now I have wheels to get around....
AND I am NOW considering STAYING in ALKATRAZ! {home}!!!!!!
SOOOOOOOOOOOOO, does that make me a Car Snob???
  Im teasing about not driving it...I have things I have to go do...
 Ssshhhhh, did anyone tell me if its against the law to drive with a sack over my head? WITH eyeball holes?

I Will Survive...Donna Summer???

NO!
 Its Kara...NOT Donna Summer!
 DANGIT!
  I am VERY rough around the edges right now,  but For the LOVE of PETE...I will Survive!
Sooooo...the back of my hands are BRUISED beyond and "Ouchie"...my neck...Check it in the ICU...and where my seatbelt "Grabbed Me",  uuuuuhhh..... HELLER.... HURTS!  But By Golly...I will come out fighting!
 So!  I HAVE had my FILL of bad luck lately...SO, I am gonna do the BEST I can do on posting for right now...I have some completed projects that I am going to TRY and get "Narrated", {ppsssttt} it does hurt the back of my hands a lil bit to type, but Im gonna TRY! 
So...let me say, I have been BEYOND TOUCHED with the support, love, caring thoughts and the FRIENDSHIPS I have made with ALL of you SPECIAL ladies...God could not have Blessed me more than he did with all of you!  If I could reach through the computer screen and Hug and Kiss each and every one of you...I WOULD!  How AMAZING are ya'll???  Im typing through tears as I think of every comment you have left!  I have been SO WORRIED I would get back on the computer and perhaps, some of you would have given up on me!  How DUMB am I???  It is TRULY through tears of love I write and say THANK YOU...ALL...for your AMAZING love and friendship!  I am BEYOND BLESSED! 
I have CLEARLY gotten behind on Whassup "Features", so the best I can offer is features on the previous weeks Whassup...I am HOPING to post this coming week...but also trying to follow Dr's orders and rest and recoup! 
Thank you ALL so much for taking the time to let me know that you are still here and I have FRIENDS to come back to!

May God BLESS every one of you!

All my HEART and LOVE....

Whassup #18...

Hey everyone.  Kara was in a car wreck, and is pretty banged up, bruised and sore.  By Dr orders, she has to rest, not stress and recoupe.  She will need to take a bit of a "Break"...she WILL be back, hopefully soon, once she is over the Shingles and her injuries.  She wanted me to set up her linky party.  Also, she wanted me to tell yall that she WILL post as soon as she can.  Thank you all for being so understanding.  She also wanted me to ask yall to PLEASE come back, as you are all VERY important to her!

Thank you!  The HUB...

Facing Any Giants?

I hope everyone had a Special Mothers Day...You are ALL such special ladies, you DESERVE BLESSED days...Everyday :)

We didnt really get to celebrate Mothers Day...We have a HUGE open house Viewing with the Top real estate brokers in the area...OH, like 60 agents!  HOLY LOVE!  The PRESSURE!  So...we spent our whole day cleaning, fixing things on the "To Do" list { Yea, the one I gave the Hub like, oh, i dont know...say about THREE YEARS AGO!!!  Yep!  I said 3 YEARS! }
  Nothing like PROCRASTINATION!!!
Uuuggg! 
**TRYING TO SMILE**

SO!  Today, I am posting on something from my heart...WAIT...didnt I just do that Friday???  SHEEZ LOUISE, Kara!  Oh well...Yall know me!  I post from the heart all the time..sometimes the Posts come out
GOOFY...Sad...dorky...RAW...Funny...GRAB the Kleenex box....Ya NEVER KNOW what your gonna get with me, Right???   Well...our family is facing a LOT of trials right now...BEYOND feeling like a small hurdle....No, they feel like MOUNT EVEREST!!!  But ya know what...We are ALL facing struggles in our lives, some HUGE and some small, either way, I am posting this for ME and ANY of you all who need this!

Do you EVER feel like David facing GOLIATH but feel like you are NOT gonna be able to "Beat him"?
Ooorrrr, am I ALONE HERE???  Well, if you can relate...this is for all of us!  I LOVE you all and feel BEYOND BLESSED to have gained yall as my FRIENDS!
I hope this helps...Its definately a testimony of having FAITH!  And, that is NOT easy to do all the time! 

Heres to God...and what FAITH can accomplish...







Oh what I would do to have
The kind of faith it takes
To climb out of this boat I'm in
Onto the crashing waves

To step out of my comfort zone
Into the realm of the unknown where Jesus is
And He's holding out His hand

But the waves are calling out my name
And they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times
I've tried before and failed
The waves they keep on telling me
Time and time again. "Boy, you'll never win!"
"You'll never win!"

Chorus:
But the voice of truth tells me a different story
The voice of truth says, "Do not be afraid!"
The voice of truth says, "This is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant
With just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they'd have had the strength to stand

But the giant's calling out my name
And he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times
I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
Time and time again. "Boy you'll never win!"
"You'll never win!"

But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don't seem so high
From on top of them lookin' down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me

I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

When God Thought of Mother...
When God thought of Mother, He must have laughed with satisfaction, and framed it quickly~so rich, so deep, so devine, so full of soul, power and beauty was the conception~
Henry Ward Beecher



Only a Mothers Faith...
There are times when only a Mothers faith can help us on lifes way and inspire in us the confidence we need from day to day~
Unknown



A Mother Dreams Our Dreams...
A Mother laughs our laughs, sheds our tears, returns our love, fears our fears.  She lives our joys, cares our cares, and all our hopes and dreams she shares~
Unknown



Gods Greatest Creation...
I affirm my profound belief that Gods greatest creation is womanhood.  I also believe that there is no greater good in all the world than motherhood.  The influence of a mother in the lives of her children is beyond calculation~
James E. Faust



A Mother...
A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces
 she never did care for pie~
Tenneva Jordan



Mother Dear...
Once upon a memory, someone wiped away a tear, held me close and loved me, thank you Mother Dear~
Unknown



Happy Mothers Day to ALL of my PRECIOUS Girlfriends in Blogland...
Those who are already Moms....and to those who may not yet be, but have motherhood in their future....

All my Love~xoxokara
