A very sad night.

December 29, 2007 at 3:05 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 27 Comments

One of our Kidd’s Kids passed away yesterday — Cherry. So, so sad. I don’t think any of us realized how sick she was during the trip. I hate that so much for the family. I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose my child. I hope and pray I never have to find out. But we never know what tomorrow holds for any of us, so I am so thankful that things are good for me and my child today.

I have many new year’s resolutions piling up. I’ve already met with a financial planner who’s going to hopefully make sure my daughter and I don’t have to worry about our future.  I am setting up an appointment with an attorney who will draw up my will should — God forbid — something happen to me.  I have Amy’s husband getting together quotes on life insurance should — once again, God forbid — something happen to me.  And I will organize all of Emma Kelly’s pictures currently suffend in shoe boxes and drawers into photo albums!  How much more can I handle in one year? Oh yeah, I’m going to read a chapter of a book every day. Some of the books will be inspirational. Some will be instructional. And some will be downright dirty and wrong. But I’m going to READ, dang it! And I’m going to join a jogging club. And I’m going to get a tummy tuck. And I’m going to get somebody to show me how to work my iPod. And I’m going to stop being attracted to completely unavailable men.  I don’t know how I’m going to do that exactly, but there is just something about ME that attracts men who are off limits. I don’t if it’s the way I look or the way I stand. I don’t know if I’m giving off a vibe. I don’t know WHAT. But it’s been like that pretty much my entire adult life. And it’s not like I know immediately that these men are unavailable. It usually happens once my attraction fully sets in and I’m walking on air and I’m feeling those fun little butterflies in my tummy. Things will be going just a little TOO perfectly and then BAM!  “Kellie, I need to tell you something…” That is then followed by either a) “Technically, I’m still married…” or b) “I have a girlfriend, but it’s really nothing serious…” or c) “I just found out she’s pregnant…” or d) “I’ve got a gig in Chicago tomorrow night. See ya!” What’s up with that? What about me attracts that? I need to see a psychic. Add that to my list.

One week of vacation has come and gone. One more to go.

I think I did pretty good uploading three and getting the little descriptions up. But I tried to upload a fourth and it wouldn’t let me. I don’t know if I have a limit per blog entry or what. I’m sorry….I’ll keep trying.

Kidd also got us all video cameras he wants us to use to start posting video blogs. I don’t know how the heck I’m EVER going to figure that one out!!!!

Okay, I just tried posting a couple pictures to see how this works, and I’m freaking awful at it! I don’t know how to move stuff around. I’m going to play with this a little bit more and if I can’t get it right, I’ll sit down with the computer guy when we get back from Christmas vacation. Meantime, ya’ll can see pictures of Emma Kelly at www.myspace.com/kellierasberry.  It’s a lot easier for me to post stuff there.

Anyway! Christmas was great. We all got too much and ate too much, as usual. I’ve got a big New Year’s Eve party to go to and this fabulous dress I want to wear, but that means broth and fruit for the next week if I’m going to undo the damage that’s been done. And I’m thinking I won’t be sticking to that diet, so I’ll have to come up with another dress option. I do hope you all had a fabulous holiday and I’ll try to write a couple more times before we get back on the air. Hopefully something wonderful will happen that I can write about!

Daddy and me, Christmas Dayimg_2505.jpgimg_2498.jpgMama and me on Christmas Day

I am so freaking tired…

I just finished wrapping the last Christmas present for all the employees of Kidd Kraddick in the Morning. OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just realized I forgot somebody!!!! CRAP! I’m gonna have to steal from somebody else and give to him. Man that sucks! I’ll figure something out. It’s almost 10:00 at night and I’ve been to Wal-Mart one time too many today, and that would be twice.

My parents arrived safely after driving in all night from SC. Daddy has to drive the whole way because Mama sees star bursts and has panic attacks, and Daddy’s too stubborn to pay for a hotel room and divide up the trip. Wait a minute…stubborn or cheap? Is THAT where I got it from?? Anyway, they made it safely and now food-a-palooza is on at the Rasberry house. I can’t describe to you the mounds of JUNK laying on top of my counter right now that we’re supposed to eat. There are chocolate-covered everythings and cheese-flavored whatnots and things covered in caramel and salt that I didn’t even realize were culinary possibilities. And with all that food lying around begging to be eaten and turned into fresh, lumpy cellulite, what do we do? Order pizza. Ugh. I will not weigh tomorrow morning. I can’t. I’m depressed enough as it is for forgetting that guy at work and to gain a pound or two would just send me over the edge.

I am going to go now.


No more girl fights!

December 20, 2007 at 1:43 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 16 Comments

I made it thru Big Al’s birthday party and I didn’t get into a girl fight.  Yea me!  Redneck Steve was there with yet another girl and unlike last time when I came close to scrapping with his date because I made some joke about not remembering her name — I’m witty like that — this time, I said hello and then kept a polite distance.  I then successfully avoided any contact that could’ve been misinterpreted by the woman currently stuck in his revolving door.  End result? I walked out of that party unscathed!   Of course, it probably had something to do with the fact that I limited myself to one adult cocktail treat and spent the majority of my time concentrating on the buffet of fried.  Fried what?  I don’t know for sure.  I do know that every single thing on that buffet was double-dipped in batter and deep-fried.  And I DO think I had some shrimp…But it didn’t look like shrimp. It did have a tail, though, so I’m just going to pretend it was shrimp.

Only two more Christmas parties, a post-Christmas/pre-New Year’s party, and a New Year’s Eve party to go! I have a little something to brag about, too. So far during this holiday season, which I count starting back at Thanksgiving, I’ve actually lost about 6 pounds. I am so freaking proud of that!!! Of course, I can’t be hanging out next to the buffet of fried on a regular basis…
