On to the Next Date

May 30th!

I knew it would take more than one date...I just didn't know it would be 30 days or so before we would get a second chance...seems with everyone trying to get a court application made before May 9th court dates have become scarce.

If you are looking for me, I will be having a long, hot shower for the next month!!!

Ode To Friday

“Let go, Monday!”
Dragging me from my fun weekend.
Yet, like all bullies, your meanness chases me to
school where I’m safe with my friends.

Tuesday, You coward, Monday’s henchman.
Yeah right, all you do is use your big, fat self to
keep me from Friday.

Wednesday, neutral. Not sweet, not sour.
I wait ‘til days end, only one more hour.

Thursday, good old fellow
like an old train, you see,
carrying me to Friday! Yippee!

Friday, Oh Friday,
The best of ‘em all.
A friendly old guy,
And kindly, indeed.

Saturday, good friend to Friday,
And me!
Why he’s more fun than climbing a tree!

Sunday, so nervous,
friend of Friday,
yet he is bullied by Monday,
and brainless fat Tuesday.
Sunday will do whatever they say
because Monday will always say,
“Give me those kids, take their weekends away!”

I am a bundle of nerves.

I was doing really well.

Trying not to get anxious or excited or worried or nervous...

...and then I woke up this morning!!

We have court this week.

I am still in denial I think...after all we been thru it is a bit surreal that we have court this week.

I know it might take more than one court date...I am fully preparing myself for that....but still...

1000 Awesome Things

I found this blog today on my gym's website - reading how happy our trainer was after reading some of the 1000 awesome things and other members posting some of their favourite things....I thought I would check it out.

And is awesome.

The 1000 Awesome Things Blog

is a reminder about how many things in life are well....awesome....and sometimes when we get caught up in our own selves we forget about living in the moment.

I know I do...especially right now...o.k. for the last 3 years....I have been living in the is good to be reminded about how much there is that is AWESOME right now!

So, as a continuation from my gym's blog and in the spirit of the 1000 Awesome Things Blog:

Here are 7 things I think are awesome:

1.) holding hands with my husband - this never gets old
2.) having all 4 of my animals snuggling on my lap at once (it happens)
3.)summer rainstorms - sitting on the front deck watching the rain and smelling the freshness of the air.
4.)trying a recipe for the first time and having it turn out
5.)a hot shower after hard work out
6.)vanilla ice cream on a sugar cone
7.)sitting by a campfire wrapped up in a blanket while someone plays the guitar and sings

What 7 things do you think are awesome?

We have a court date!!!

A Wee Me and My Beautiful Momma

My cousin sent me this picture of me when I was wee with my beautiful momma....she would have been about 24 and I would have been about 3 I think.....

My mom also had some old video footage she had my cousin convert to dvd - it is such a trip seeing your mom and you when you both are both so makes the heart swell.

My mom has always been there for me - thru the good and the bad I know I can count on her.

She has been my mom, my dad, my sister, my friend....she shaped me into the woman I am today.

I love her more than she will ever know!

Thanks beautiful momma of mine - I love you!!!

Michael Franti

Tomorrow night we are going to see John Mayer in concert.

But what is really exciting is that Michael Franti is opening for him who is also an amazing musician.

Did you know he was adopted?

He is.

Did you know he has a son named Ade?

He does.

Did you know he doesn't like wearing shoes unless he has to and then only flip flops...Wikipedia says it's so!
