We love
We laugh
We hold and comfort
We cook and clean
We smile and nod

Living the way we should
Enjoying what we have, but always wanting more
Marriage, family, cats, dogs, fish- who knows
There is always more
Or is there

Things take a turn
Something uncontrollable happens
And we fight like crazy to maintain composure through out
But in the shadows, and alone we can't
As much as it shouldn't affect us, it does- but we refuse to the let World know

Moms taught us to be strong
And walk with heads held high and shoulders thrown back
Taking on every little thing thrown at us
Making sure everyone else is taken care of, even when we feel low
Knowing that our gratification will come through that

It's hard, but we deal
It's sad, but we cry
It's scary, but we manage
Giving love and laughs is how we get through it
Receiving love and laughs is how we know it's all worth it.

My horrible addiction......

Is to Fashion Magazines. I have subscriptions to a few, and a doctor that supplies me with the rest from her collection. *sigh* I know its a horrid thing to be addicted to, but I just can't help it- the makeup the hair the clothes- the SHOES!

On my last adventure through one magazine, I found a haircut I am in Love with. It's going to take a bit of time, but I will make myself patient for this one- it's great...

I know, I know- she's a bitch she's ALWAYS in some trash magazine, but my goodness she has great hair.....

Thoughts after the drive to work

1. Construction work sometimes irritates me, especially when I am attempting to make a right turn and the corner is all torn up
2. The sun is extremely bright at 7am
3. I think the humidity may kill me
4. When did it become okay not to identify yourself on the telephone when conducting business?
5. Dinners with lovers are awesome!
6. Target clearance racks are super fun to browse, and even more fun to purchase from
7. Surprising my father with coffee at his work is fun, but seeing the smile he gets on his face is heartwarming

Simply Living

This weekend was full of wonderful people, great food and conversation and the simple pleasures in life!
Friday night Fishstick and I had a few friends over for drinks and some food. Last year when the weather cooled off we had "cocktail and music night on the front porch". It was awesome. I'd hit the grocery store on the way home from work on Fridays, and we would nibble a bit and have drinks and listen to music and talk for hours. It was always the perfect way to start the weekend. This past Friday we decided to share it with a couple we adore so very much. It was great. We talked until 11:30, had cocktails and laughed so hard at times. Perfect start to the weekend.
Saturday he worked all day, but my Cadie girl came over and we just hung out. Folded our laundry together, watched tv, snacked, talked and ended the evening with her cutting her hair off, my dying it for her and us making a killer frozen pizza. Her hair looks awesome! But, sometimes an estrogen fest is just what the doctor ordered! :)
Sunday was a lazy day, made breakfast we watched baseball, read books, had dinner with my family and dessert with Zen Bunny and the Misses.
Got home last night to two kitties that wanted nothing more than to super snuggle with me.

When I keep the important things in life to simple fun stuffs, everything is always wonderful!
Thanks to all the great people that made my simple weekend one of the best I have had in a while.
Love you guys! :)

Oh yeah I extended my morning walk to 3 miles this morning and did it in 40 minutes!

Morning Thoughts

1. waking up on the wrong side of the bed- bad, getting to see someone that makes you smile- great
2. sometimes coffee is better when it's got stuff in it
3. KJewel is a great radio station for feel good music
4. I cannot change the world or people in one day, but I am not going to give up trying
5. Family is a necessity
6. People continue to surprise me, not always in a good way
7. Being invited to things is such a treat

And this reminded me of a few people.....

Too many words, too much

I have a hard time with people that feel the need to "fluff" their egos on a constant basis. Yeah sometimes we get excited about something that is happening or something that we have had a hand in doing, but do we really need to consistantly publically pat ourselves on the back??
Is it necessary to tell the World how great a friend you are, how self-less you are? Nope, prove it.
Personally I would love to hear about what you're doing with family and friends, vacations, work, loves and hates. But feeling the need to remind people of how great you are..... ?

And since this can't just be a rant, a picture that keeps on making me smile! :)

The Crazies I call

My family. The people that I laugh and cry with The people I can always be myself with The people that may not always accept what I am doing But always support me crazy ass thoughts and actions

The people that keep it real The people that let me know it's all going to be okay The people that drive me nuts But keep me completely sane

The people that I live to love and make me love to live The people that are always there when no one else is The people that make me shoot water out of my nose and scream at the top of my lungs

The people who have taught me the most about the World and the people that inhabit it The rights and wrongs the good and the bad

To trust people and not to trust situations to love with all my heart and live life to its fullest the people that I love more than anything, you guys are AMAZING

I will never understand how families can disregard one another like they are yesterday's news. You will never see that here. I love you guys. Thanks for always being my stones, my heart and my soul.
