Me on Wed..


I have decided to make wed the day I give myself permission to ramble..So I am going to try to make it my self portrait and rambling day since some how in my brain the two go together...OK I seem to be felling much better..but that could change tomorrow...I am more aware of my happiness and sadness.. I think I need to pray more..My girl friend found out she was sick and it changed my view of my girlfriends...I am really learning how much I love them and how much I need them. My girlfriend appreciation meter with myself went way up..I have been spending lots of time with Carrie she is very inspirational to me...(thank you C)...I love mail don't you...I am trying to send out a card to a friend every week...Monday is still my favorite day of the week and I hope that never changes..OK...my kids...I am in love with all three...My little boy...well I am trying really hard to be both loving and strong but I have to admit I think I am too nice so that makes me a pushover...but I am aware and trying...My little girl ...well she is her own girl and I love that she tries to be like me and that she tries not to be like me...My soon to be 16 year old...She is so pretty and she can be very sweet too but hello she is 15....so all can say in reagards to my mothering is I love them completely ...
OK...and I just want to touch on this because know I am not the only one...My sadness comes and goes and I tried meds...but they make me so tired and hazy....so I am doing the only thing that seems to work for me...exercise and the one day at a time method..Some days are GREAT others OK and others just suck....but don't give up (right) because there is always tomorrow and tomorrow might be great if so we just keep moving forward well we are bound to run into all of it...a rainbow of beautiful human emotions....and I dont want to miss any of it....

Jane made the cutest little bicycle with the perfect yellow I love you...

My mom the superhero

This is my little boy that does not let me take his picture anymore...I wanted to share this mad libs that turned into a mothers day card to me....I think its perfect coming from my 9 year old boy...
Dear Mom,
If you were a superhero, like wonder pizza you would have a -lot of fat powers..Like dumpsters in the back of your head.. Then you would be able to see everything that my chipmunks do when they think you are not cleaning. And you would be able to do 7 things all at once. You could talk to a chicken while cooking and plan the calendar while talking on the phone. Think of all the things you could do in a day. You could work at Wallmart . Then drive me to gymnastics for practice.Take me out to an evil dinner with your shoes on backwards. Then come and watch me play video games at school Wait.....that's just a typical day for you right....That's so secret!! Thanks for all you do!
Love Christopher

Pink Ninja addicts....monday




I adore my little boy...I did this layout using The Carrie kit that you can get here... I love how sweet and not completely girly it turned out..The embellishments were so cute and so stack able..that's important because we all love to stack green flowers with yellow flowers etc ..My little guy is not really into letting me take his picture anymore so when I get a cute one I scrap it..Have a great Monday....

Pink Ninja addicts....





This layout was created with June Kit..from the Pink Nina Addicts I am dedicating this layout to my sweet 15 year old ..Paola
We have had a really good relationship lately..She has been such a good girl ..Its amazing being 38 with a 15 year old. I have to remind myself often that she needs me to be a mom mare than a friend. Its a fine line. I cant remember not having her in my life ..My fondest moments include her. I am listening more and she is talking more, I actually think the jet black hair she is sporting today looks cute on her..Her music choices are a little crazy but at 15 I believe mine were too..Most of the time not always we are OK together..right now we are flowing . I am her mommy a little bit friend with a dash of fashion consultant and pinch of weird...

My dad and I at the expo...

At the expo....Thinking, hoping dreaming about going to this race one day....Can she do it? well one day YES..
At the expo... hanging out with my best friend ...if Elvis can do it...check out my dad..He can do it....When we hang out..we are funny we make fun of each other..He takes good care of me..He makes me his daughter..He runs with me and sometimes kicks my butt...He always shows up..It funny because I am not loud but when I hang out with my dad..We are loud and I can tell you we laugh a-lot..I think its so cool we ran a marathon together...
He did so great..He took 20 minutes of his PR. and he went all out..
This is what we are like together....Thanks to you Dad..for being so good to me and being such a good man ... and always calling just to say I am checking on my Princess ...I love you....
