Celebrity Dirt- I am so BEHIND

So while I have been living in my unemployment bubble, I tend to forget to look at the major celeb gossip sites. So I did and guess what....

Paris Hilton and her "Hills" tag along boyfriend Doug Reinhardt broke up, I mean who cares, but I totally didn't see this one coming...NOT!

Apparently there is an HIV outbreak in the porn industry, again, who cares, but I totally didn't that happening either...HA!! Come on people if you play with fire, you might catch something that dieasel and a wire brush can't get rid of.

Apparently Brett Michaels busted his face while at the Tony awards. Well now his face matches his busted hair!

Miley Cyrus is in Savannah filming a movie and apparently riding Jet ski's down south with Nick Jonas. Apparently Miley dumped her model boyfriend and may be back with a Jonas. CRAZY!! I bet all the kids are going nutso in Savannah, trying to get a glimpse of Miley!

Kendra "Girls Next Door" is preggers! Good to know it's not Hef's, otherwise I think their maybe another mysterious case of Benjamin Button, except the kid would look like an old man forever.

Karl Lagerfeld called Heidi Klum "heavy", jf Heidi is heavy, what am I a hippo!!!

There is another "pirates" sequel coming out, "Where's the Rum?" Everyone loves a little Jack Sparrow!!

USH...ERRRRR is getting divorced after 2 years, who really thought that this R & B marriage would last...NOT ME, but again who really cares!

Miss America was "Fired", who knew that you could get fired, I thought they called it taking the crown away, but now they treat it like a job. I mean all they are talking heads, what's with pagent girls anyway!! Again who cares, it's not like she was saving the planet or anything.

Swine flu is now a worldwide pandemic....okay I know this isn't celebrity gossip, but it was on Perez, and I did just find this out.

Okay that's enough, just thought maybe someone else may be behind on this info and needs to know!!!

Have a great Weekend!

When God closes Doors, He opens Windows

Back in March, God closed a door on me. One of unemployment. I was pissed and embarrassed a little, thinking that I was some black sheep that didn't have a job. After a week on moping around, I embraced it, decided that it was God's way of saying, take a break, and I will take care of you. He did. I didn't have to worry about money, because due to the way the unemployment system works, and due to a battle last year for my sales commission, I got paid my entire bonus in one quarter, and unemployment pays you on your highest paid quarter, therefore, I was getting just a little less than my former salary. God's little blessing in disquise from last year's battle about bonus! God knew what was ahead for me.

Just this week, my former employer let more people go and cut everyone's salary and making everyone take a mandatory two week unpaid vacation, therefore leaving me more profitable with unemployment. I know that unemployment isn't lasting forever, nor do I want to be on it for a long time, but I know that this gives me the opportunity to search for a job that I "want" and not one that I "need". It's about passion, and I want to find something that I am passionate about. So my layoff in March was a blessing in disquise yet again, because God was looking out for me because of the future things to come at my old employer.

I have found it so hard to keep my faith in God this year. I have lost alot, and I am not going to say, I know other's have lost more and I should be thankful for what I have, because I am bitter, and I don't believe this, I am thankful for what I have, but I miss the hell out of my Dad. Father's day is coming up and it's taking alot to get through it, but I have faith in God that he has put the right people in my life to see me through it.

Hopefully I found the window that God opened for me, it took me awhile, but I think or hope that I found it. I recieved a call yesterday about a possible job and I have a meeting next week. It's with someone I met with over a year ago about a job. Good things comes to those who wait, right? I am just not patient, and I believe this has been God's way of saying "Kelly, hold your britches just a minute!" So I have had to put my big girl panties on and be patient, luckily I have gotten a good tan and reading some good books all while being as patient as I possibly can!

Lumsden Farms- North Carolina Branch

Well apparently "I got it from my.." Daddy. Farming skills that is! I am currently growing two tomato plants in one large clay pot and two squash plants in another container on my back deck. I am happy to report good things, I currently have two tiny baby tomato's dangling from the vines, I mean they kind of look like little dingleberries right now, but very very cute!! Also I learned how squash plant, flowers, then when the flowers open up, little yellow "things" coming out of the center. I am so excited that I am going to fresh veggies this summer. I decided to take things slow and start with tomato's and squash next year I will branch out.
Everyone is complaining about all the rain, but my 'mater and squashy plants are doing happy dances!!
