Day 09- Something you’re proud of in the past few days

I am proud of my middle son Ethan. A year ago we were lucky to get 2 words out of him and as of late he has been a non stop talking machine! Yesterday i was painting my new room and ethan was with me "helping". a few days before we had painted his room green and black and the whole time he said " green is my favorite color". so very cute! well i was painting my room teal and he said " green is my favorite color" to which i replied " this isnt green honey its teal" he then said "i know this is blue and green" for most moms a 8 year old saying this is no big deal but to me its the world.

Day 07- A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you

At first my automatic thought for this was my children. And of course they have had the biggest impact on my life by far and they will continue to be for the rest of my life as i am working on becoming a mother they deserve. But as i looked for a couple good pictures of them, a time consuming task as there are so many, i came upon some of my brother Eric. Then i started to think about him. He is a great man and gives me hope. He found love again with Leslie and started a real family. So yes it is possible and that gives me hope. lets face it our previous spouses sucked (both figurative and literally).Not only that but i see how much he loves his baby girls and that gives me hope. A man can really love his children and work hard to give them the best.His life is dedicated to his wife and daughters and that is beautiful. My brother has a huge impact on me and gives me so much hope. He can build a family with love and hard work and therefor so can i. thank you Eric for always being there for me and never telling me i was doing well when i was not. You are a huge blessing upon my life.

Day 5- A picture of a place you've been



this is a picture of the scientology church entrance in los angelas. we didnt go inside because it was closed but we did talk to some of its staff. i might offend some of you but i think scientology is one big joke and an evil one at that. i have done my fair share of research on it after watching a news program talking about the evils of it. and come to think of it the staff creeped me out too. i dont think the followers are evil just mislead.

Day 4- A habit I wish I didnt have....

There are so little things (if any) that I do wrong it might take me a bit to find a bad habit. Hmm let me think. The reality is there are so many bad habits its hard to pick just one. In my defense I think the worst of them all was smoking cigarettes and that I no longer do. I pick at my face to much but no one really wants to read about that, so I am going to say my worst habit is not putting away clean clothes.
I don’t mind doing laundry at all. As a matter of fact I love the sounds of the washer and dryer. It is such a comfy home sound. Perhaps it reminds me of my childhood falling asleep for a nap while my mom did her daily chores. Even the smell puts me in a relaxed mood. Maybe that’s the problem. Laundry makes me sleepy. So when I am done and ready to fold those cozy warm clothes I get lazy and take a nap instead.
The problem with all of that is when I snap out of my laundry coma I have already mentally moved on to something else and the laundry never gets put away in a timely manner. So because it sits on the bed in a pile some of it falls on the ground and gets mixed up with the dirty clothes and gets washed again. An unnecessary step really. I do however usually …sometimes… put these clothes away when it gets bad about once a week or so. Needless to say it’s a bad habit I really need to break, but after twenty some years it might be a harder one to break than smoking. Wish me luck!
Live , laugh, but above all LOVE.

Today is a new day!

Today is the start of a new lifestyle. I am starting this raw detox diet. It is a great book that i found in colorado. I dont really want o call it a diet because diet is kinda like a four letter word. I plan on changing the entire way i look at life and food. I let myself get to frumpy here in oklahoma which i promised myself i wouldnt do when i moved here.needles to say i am a little disappointed in myself.In total i plan on losing around 20 pounds. so i am telling all you in hope that i will not get lazy.ok thats it for now. live laugh and above all love.

castle rockin!

we are currently on a long weekend at my brothers house in castle rock. I am in love with this area and i feel as though i have stepped out of the dark ages. I was lucky enough to shop at sprouts today and king suppers, and i laughed with my mom because i felt like a kid at a candy store. In sprouts my eyes welled up with tears (no joke) at all the fantastic healthy foods readily available. Honestly i am dreading going back to just our super walmart for shopping. the air is thin up here and we are feeling it for sure. But the sky is blue the air smells clean and the view of the rockies is priceless. we helped my brother with his booth at Oktoberfest. He is involved with this company called thrive. it is super cool freeze dried food that taste fabulous with no additives! yum yum!!! the cousins have had an absolute blast together. the parks up here are so nice and so clean! It is a little bit like orange county but not enough to suck. if you wanna see pictures check out my castle rock album on facebook.
