Interesting things have been happening though.. I do appreciate all the emails, and nice words everyone has been sending me..Its funny though because people are wanting to know "WHY" and "What were they thinking" and all of that.. and how they can express their displeasure about the recent changes at KKNG.. Well I don't have most of those answers..I don't know "Why" or "What they were thinking" but I do find it amusing that 'they' would think that no one would notice or care that their favorite radio station just got re-routed, and redone! People don't usually like change, especially if its bad change..in which people lose their jobs, and lose their radio station.. So for those of you who would like to voice your displeasure you can email:
firstname.lastname@example.org and I think that will go to the appropriate "Powers that be". Then maybe they can give you some answers. As for me, I'm good..I do appreciate all the prayers, sweet cards, letters, emails, and calls..but honestly folks..This is going to be a blessing. It doesn't feel or look that way right now, but all things happen for a reason, and the Lord will take care of me. He always has, and always will.
In the Meanwhile..exciting news.. Before KKNG let me go, I had already planned a trip with MJ to Florida for the end of this month..So I'm still going to go. We leave next Wednesday. I'm also going to get to see an old friend that I went to college with, Chantry, so I'm excited about that too!
Tonight Sawyer goes on a Therapy visit..We'll see how he does.. I missed being on the air yesterday for St. Patricks day..Bill & I doing our horrible Irish/Scottish accents was one of my favorite things.. Oh, and we'd always call Ireland and see if we could get drunk people to sing to us..That was also good times.. Now we'll just have to find New good times.. I talked to Bill on Tuesday..he's doing good, and fixing some things around his house, and painting the rooms for the kids.. I'll keep you posted on him too.. In the meanwhile, if you need me: email@example.com is my new email address.. enjoy the sunshine today folks! I know I will!! XXOO

The parents are bringing up some heifers that we raised to show in the OKC Youth Expo this weekend at the fairgrounds, so MJ & I are going to go watch them.. He's never been to a cattle show before, so this could be wildly exciting! lol..

So I've realized that for the past 13 years in doing morning radio I miss the sun shine coming up..So if there is a silver lining, I suppose that would be it. I also went to have drinks/dinner with some good friends on Tuesday at the Iguana grill downtown..MM MM! It was Taco Tuesday so we had these fabulous little mini-tacos.. They were delish.. Then When we went outside Whitney & I noticed that we were right next door to the 'Sara Sara Cupcake house'.. OH MY GOSH..Those cupcakes are magical! It was also $2 Tuesday there, so I got 6 magical cupcakes..Strawberry, Crimson and Creme, Coconut Creme, Carrot cake, and vanilla.. I just had the Strawberry one, and I tell ya, if anything can make you feel better about getting canned at your job..that strawberry cupcake is it! It was so good!
Tonight I'm going to go have dinner with Bill & Leslie (Bill's Finance') and see if Bill is having any luck with the job front. Since we were both so caught off guard, we didn't even have our Resume updated! I've been doing that, and I've applied at several places already. But everyone keeps asking me if I'm going to another radio station.. Well I suppose that will be up to the other stations! lol.. Right now the radio business is just in an ugly place..I hope it turns around, because after being on the radio for 13 years, I just cannot imagine not being on the air..But I may have to have to get out for awhile. I'm looking at some part-time stuff with a few people, and I'm just keeping my options open. I'm sure Bill is doing the same..but I'll give you all an update on him too. Bill & I will always be friends, and he is still planning on getting married in July.
In the meanwhile I went back to see Dr. Cox yesterday and got 3 more silver fillings replaced..so we're at least making a dent in it! My mom is coming up this weekend, and I'm excited to see her.. Today I gave Miss Payslee a bath, because we have a therapy visit tonight at Sterling House. Her OSU cheerleader outfit came in, and its just adorable! She also got another cute Easter Dress in.. I'll post pics from her visit tonight, tomorrow.. Remember if you need me, I'm at firstname.lastname@example.org now.. :)

Well this is a whole new world to me. I've never been 'let go' from anything in my life, so I'm really kinda wondering what the heck to do! I woke up early this morning and re-did my resume, and I'm going to work on an aircheck later this afternoon. Its quite a process. I'm going back to the dentist tomorrow because I won't be able to keep my benefits forever, and need to get as much done as I can..so we'll see what we can accomplish. So thats what we're doing today folks! Its so pretty outside though, and later I'm going to go grab a drink with some of my friends! Woo hoo!

I had an excellent weekend! Friday night Lauren, Amy, Brandon, Bill, & Leslie went to see Lorrie Morgan & Pam Tillis at the Firelake Casino. They looked and sounded amazing. They are both SO cute! Pam Tillis got a new haircut and its just adorable on her. They sang most of their hits. My favorite was Lorrie singing "Good as I was to you" and "Something in Red".. and Pam singing "All the Good ones are Gone" and "Spilled Perfume".. They also did a tribute to their dads, and then sang "Silver Wings" together..their Encore was a little Beatles Medley..It was an excellent show..until these two ladies in front of me "Shusshed" me.. I was telling Lauren about Pam Tillis being in a car wreck and they turned around and shusshed me..Which yes, irritated me..but not as bad as when, 2 seconds later, they ANSWERED THEIR CELL PHONE AND BEGAN TALKING!! Seriously?!?! You're going to Shussh Me and then Answer your phone and talk! What a joke.. So yes, that was quite irritating..Other than that though..Great show! If you want to see more pictures from the show you can go
Saturday was Brandon's Birthday party so MJ and I went over there to surprise him. He had no idea we were coming over so he was all jolly about that..and the fact that I took him a Horsehead Cookie Cake.. I Mean who doesn't love cakes with a horsehead on them! So that was funtimes..
Yesterday MJ & I grilled some delicious Cusack Steaks outside..I decided to add some Gargonzola cheese and sautee'd mushrooms..HOLY MAGOLI it was delcious! Then we watched the Oscars. I was glad Monique won.. She played a very DARK role in "Precious" and it was well-deserved.. Also glad Sandra Bullock won..I loved "The Blind Side".. Speakin of movies..I went to see "Alice in Wonderland" in 3D IMAX and it was AMAZING! For those of you scared that its going to ruin the cartoon for you, it doesn't..It actually plays off that quite a bit, and the 3D stuff is just amazing..I LOVED Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter and The Queen of Hearts was really good too..So many colorful characters to look at..It was very good..But I think you will lose a little of the magic if you don't see it in 3D..
In case you missed the story about Brad Paisley falling off the show..Here it is for you..He thinks he may have cracked his ribs..Its almost at the very end of the video, and the audio is awful..but I didn't want you to miss out..lol.. Here ya go!
ONE MORE THING.. This little guy needs a home. His other family didn't want him anymore, because they had a new baby..not because of anything he did. He's a good boy and he just ADORES kids since thats what he was raised with..He's very smart, house-trained, and a good guy.. Let me know if you want more info about him: Just email me at email@example.com Here's YANKEE:

So yesterday I went back to the dentist..Its quite a process I'm going through just so you know.. lol.. I found out a few months ago that there were silver fillings in my mouth that had been there since I was 6 years old..Now for some bizarre reason I was thinking that those fillings would last forever.. I was wrong. Dr. Cox took pics of my teeth and those fillings were the most nasty, gross things I had seen in awhile! They were also causing more tooth decay because they were leaking all over the place.. So we decided to give my mouth an overhaul and get new, nice fillings in my mouth.. I got to the dentist just in time before I had really done some damage..so thats the good news.. the bad news? We have 16 fillings to replace! Geesh! My mouth is crap! lol.. Thanks crappy genetics! hahahaha! Sorry mom.. Okay, so anyway.. We have now replaced 4 out of the 16. We were supposed to do 3 yesterday but one was so giant that after 2 hours of working on it we decided to call it a day.. The good news is that its not NEARLY as terrible as I thought it would be. Its a process..but its painless.. and of course I love laughing gas, so there ya go.. Its a good thing I really like Dr. Cox, because I'm going to be spending a LOT of time with him over the next few months!!
MJ & I went to the Auto show last night.. Lots of neat cars out there.. I liked a bunch of them, but I can't remember the names of most of them! I do know that I loved a Black 4-Runner, and a Mercedes! Tonight I'm going on a therapy visit to Sterling House with Miss Payslee.. I think she's going to wear her Polka Dot Dress..Yes, I'm aware that dressing up my dogs is a bit ridiculous..but I tell ya..it sure does bring a smile to the little ladies faces!
This is the cutest/funniest thing.. Enjoy! http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid1610699488?bctid=31812464001

So Yesterday I got the clearance to be able to drive My little Hospice lady, Miss Dorothy to visit her husband George at the Nursing home. I got Payslee all dolled up in her Orange Gingham dress and we went to pick up Dorothy..Well how cute that she was also dressed in Orange! So she and Miss Pays matched.. We had a great visit. Miss Dorothy & George have been married for 64 years this year. She is 86 and he's 89. She still gets all dolled up to go see him everytime. Its so cute. Yesterday she had on Orange from head to toe! Orange heels..Orange Purse.. Orange pants..Orange Coat..Orange Jewlery and topped it off with Orange Lipstick!! She's such a neat lady. Here's a
Its always hard to take pics of the color of Payslee's eyes. Her eyes are gold because she is a "Liver" shih-tzu. A Liver means that her pigment is pink..Most Shih-tzu's have a black nose, and dark eyes..but Pays has gold eyes and a pink nose..with Pink Paw Pads, and Pink around her eyes as opposed to dark. Sawyer is a regular tzu with the dark eyes and nose.. Payslee had a great time visiting with the folks yesterday..she's quite a charmer! She always lets people smootch her right in the face if they want to do it!

Did you hear Blake Shelton on the air with us this morning? He's funny and awesome..and for some reason I told him he had a good Head on him? WHY WOULD I DO THAT???? I'm an idiot..so So far I've told the Mountain Man from the Oak Ridge Boys that he looked "Very Mountainish" and now I've told Blake Shelton he has a good HEAD on him! Geesh..Anyway, if you missed the interview here ya go.. http://kkng.podbean.com/
I had a good weekend..Didn't do much on Friday. Went to the sales at KOHL's and took the dog babes Rollerblading. Then Saturday MJ took me to a place in Norman called "Victoria's" to eat some delicious Italian Food. It was awesome! I had me some spinach Tortellini and it was excellent. Then we went home and watched some of this series we had recorded called "World War II in HD" on the History channel. There is a former soldier on there from Oklahoma that played for Coach Iba in Stillwater..and its just facinating to listen to. VERY good series!
Yesterday MJ and I went to an Open house in Yukon..Not to buy a house..but just to kinda look. I've been throwing away money in Rent up here for 3 years now, so it might be a more practical choice for me to buy a house. Speaking of..I got all the leather furniture polished and good to go. Got it rearranged the way I wanted it.. Spent last night on the new couch watching Jet & Cord McCoy on the Amazing Race..They are cracking me up. Jet & I had a class together at Swosu, so I'm enjoying cheering our Oklahoma boys on and hoping they take home more prizes!
