Women Are Amazing

I have been bad about posting this week, I have found waay to many blogs that I am loving to read daily. There are so many creative women out there. I am thankful for blogspot and the easy access inside their homes and ideas. They have the homes I long to have. Some I have gone ahead and followed others I just read for an hr or so and come away with new ideas. So yes that is why I have not posted like I wanted too. Reading these wonderful womens blogs and seeing all their blogs makes me feel boring. I am going to start making Ryon go with me to the Brocantes(Belgium version of thrift stores) and get some good finds and fix them up. The only bad thing about being over here is that I do not have all the wonderful garage sales, thrift stores, Marshalls, Ross that I used to go to. I have to stick to ebay, and the broncates. But I WILL SPEND THE EUROS...I AM TOTALLY INSPIRED!! =) I want to paint something, fix it. So I am going to buy these UGLY, I mean UGLY gold mirrors I found for 50% off 75 bucks and will fix them up. I will post a before pic and after pic once I get the stuff to do it. It is cold outside right now so not good painting/sparypainting weather. BUT It will happen.=) I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I am planning on a busy one. Friends Birthday dinner in a charming lil town called Ghent.BE and tommorow a friends lil boy's b-day party, then a girls night out at the movies. Here is a picture of something that always makes me smile. Since I was talking about women who have inspired me. I wanted to post pictures of women who are very important in my life, who make me smile...friends and my sisters. Now I did not post a picture of every woman who is special in my life. These are just from the first picture folder I opened. They are old pictures from 2002-2003 time. WOW! My sisters Jessica and Alexandra, Ashley is in the next one, Then Kira and Then Marisa.Awww I miss them. Okay have to get ready for tonight I have to look good and plus the place is an hr away. See you around.

Funny Filler Post

Why, Why, Why!

Why do we press harder on a remotecontrol when we know the batteries are almost dead?

Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they already know there is not enough money?
Why does someone Believe you when you say there are four billion stars; but have to check when you say the paint is still wet?
Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?
Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?
Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

Whose idea was it to put an 'S' in the word 'lisp'?
If people evolved from apes, Why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?
Is there ever a day that mattresses Are not on sale?
Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?

Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance?

Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try?

How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?
When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping cart then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, 'It's all right?' Well, it isn't all right, so why don't we say, 'That really hurt, why don't you watch where you're going?'

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?
In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?
How come you never hear father-in-law jokes?

And my FAVORITE...... The statistics on sanity is that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

My Friend, My lover..My Husband

LOVE isn't just hearts and flowers
it's rainydays made sunny
It's the little daily triumphs
it's all the random rough spots
It's the way that you accept me
it's knowing you support me
It's wanting to be worthy
it's looking toward the future
It's mornings in the kitchen
it's cuddling up at night

This is LOVE, the daily stuff
and we've sure got it right

***I love you Ryon Ray, 6 years togther seems like it only just begun yet you have been there forever. Thank you, thank you, thank you.......just for you.

You are Mine,
As I am Yours,

Dreaming? If so please do not wake me up

I am taking a break from prepping for my trip tommorow. We are going to Paris, France for our anniversary. Tommorow at 120pm exactly we will be married 6yrs.Then the very next day is his 28th birthday. Yes he is going there before me. Yippeeee. But I am hoping to do this lil suprise thing for him. Which is okay to post here because of two reasons. 1. He does not read blogs 2. IF he choose to start it would not be till I have already suprised him so it is all good. Today I have just thought about our life togther alot. It is so crazy when I stop to look at the short amount that we have been togther. It feels like yesterday and forever all wrapped up in one awesome package. Now do not get me wrong we have had our ups and down. Every couple is not always happy. If they are and never fight and have been togther more than a few months...SOME ONE IS FAKING!! If you know someone who has been togther and never fights, or is un-happy in any way. Please get them to bottle their mojo and sell it. =)

So why the title? I am just so in love. With my husband, my animals, my friends are great, there is no drama. I mean yesterday we had a lil bit BUT ehh that was quick. I mean in our direct life and daily routine we are great. For those who really know me you know that...well last year was the first year in my WHOLE life that nothing bad has happened. It freaked me out at first and I wanted to find the other shoe. Going around like a chicken with its head cut off to find the dreaded "event" that would just have to be happening. But after getting here and not really having my family or my girls and 100% counting on my husband. Well I embraced the change. I tell myself everyday how lucky I am to have this life, to have my loved ones(family and friends). I tell my husband thank you everyday for this wonderful chance. So here I am now and am going with the acceptence. I got so excited last night booking our hotel in Dublin, Ireland for March I could have peeed my pants. I mean it!! Look at this place!!!!!!!

Isn't just wonderful looking it is CLONTARF CASTLE built in 1172. I am going to be not only visting a country I have most of my ancestry in but a castle?? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhh! Now both myself and my lovely husband are into history so we looked up some info. It was once held by the Knights of Templar, It was in some form of Royalty till the early 1900's, It then became a cabret and then sold in 1997 and has been a hotel since that keeps as you can tell its rich history very much alive. Oh and credit to the owners/runners of this place...MAJOR selling point. The history I told you was the 10 sec version if you want you should look some of it up. BTW this are not my photos, I wanted so desperatly to post some pics of the place we are staying that I looked for copyrights, or anything on the websites and could not find them. So I will replace these ones with my own in a few months time. So I will go and close this but I wanted to just hopefully share some of my joy. Is it making you sick yet? =) After reading some blogs out there I feel bad that mine can be so boring. But alas you are my friend so you must read it. I will try to post something poetic and whimsical or moving next week. I hope you have a great weekend. I will be posting on Monday again..I hope to but do not hold me to it.

Thank you for reading and see you around

How did it change from Postive to Negative??

What do you think of when you see that word? Do you think plays, movies or shows? Do you think something you do not want in your life? How did this word turn into a Negative. When we think drama we usually think..conflict, stupid gossip, problems, petty --well I do anyways. So I looked up the meaning:

(n.) Dramatic composition and the literature pertaining to or illustrating it; dramatic literature.
(n.) A series of real events invested with a dramatic unity and interest.
(n.) A composition, in prose or poetry, accommodated to action, and intended to exhibit a picture of human life, or to depict a series of grave or humorous actions of more than ordinary interest, tending toward some striking result. It is commonly designed to be spoken and represented by actors on the stage.

To make it quick and that way I am not telling something in my usual time which is longer than to long. =) I got a call this morning about some study material of my friend and my husbands co worker. It was study material for a computer. So you know how things have license and registrations? Well some one came to visit us over the holidays. Ryon took this person into his work to check it out since they do the same thing in different locations. Find out weeks later,....that person STOLE this study material and registered it in their name. Well it was already registered to my friend. So this person gets an email informing her. So then as crap always rolls down hill I get a call at 830 this morning asking about it. Because the name of the supposed friend who stole it is known and shows up. Sooooo to me that is drama. Not only did this person intrude on our holiday season, not buy any food while he ate here, not clean up anything, even left his bed messy the day he left. He goes and steals from my husbands work...and FROM MY/OUR FRIEND. Does not even care??? Lucky that we were able to find out and get in solved with in an hr what happened. Because how UN-comfortable would that be. This place is smaller than small town. So I would have been highly upset if I lost a friendship and had things spread that are not personality traits of ours passed around. Sooo now we or my husband gets to confront this "supposed friend" about it. BTW this dude is think he would be a little more respectful and smart about things.

So that is why I looked up drama. I hate having it in my life. I am not someone who avoids conflict, I more often than not go running into full speed ahead to deal with it. Which is good and bad. Since I am impulsive in everything but those things matter those I love. I sometimes stick my foot in my mouth. But even with me not afraid of facing it ...well I just hate it. You have to go over and over things in your head, then confront people, a back and forth period of time. If your feelings get upset then you end up saying things you do not mean. It is a horrible vicious cycle that I hate. Funny enough the only drama I had last year around Feb involved this same friend of my husbands. So sorry buddy there are no 3 strikes you are out with me. You are not close enough to us, you do not enhance my life, or our life in ANY WAY. So finally straw and you are cut. Which makes me sad for my hubby he worked with this person for 4yrs and traveled with this person. So has to be hard for him to think about confronting this guy again.

On a lighter note to do something different and a girl thing. I signed myself and 2 of my girlfriends up for a women's self defense course starting this Friday. It is only 2 classes but I am super super stoked about it. I always say a quote " I may not know karate but I know crazy"..=) hahahehee. That is a line from Shanghai Noon. Or that is the first place I heard it..I think it is a James Brown line in a song too. Not to sure but I say that and I am antsy to actually learn REAL moves. So I will tell you how it all is on Monday. I might not post Saturday since it is my 6Th wedding anniversary and we are going to Paris, France for the day. Then the next day is Ryon's 28Th birthday. I am supposed to post my photo blog that day too. Jen picked Sunset's so I am excited to see her pic. So I will do a quick blog on Sunday here as well to show a few pics from Paris and his birthday and tell you how the class went.

Plus oh in keeping up with "Working on the new and improved me" fit/body wise. I am starting up yoga 3x a week and spinning class once a week. That way I will not get bored and my body used to the same work out routine. I am excited. I have taken yoga before. Someone people think it is just stretching but to me it is so much more. Man the breathing, the kicks your butt for the first while you do it. So wish me luck. Okay off I go enough boring you. I just wanted to do a Lil HELLO OUT THERE blog and a venting session.

See you all Around on this Crazy Internet we love

Lyrics Change Everything..

So I was listening to what I thought was a favorite song by Imogen Heap called Loose Ends today. I got a bit of a wild hair and figured download it and put it on my ipod. So I went and did that. The Loose Ends I downloaded and the one that is on my playlist are two TOTALLY diffrent songs. Then that made me extrememly curious. So finally after reasearching the lyrics I found out it is a song from Silent Hill. That video game. Maybe Imogen Heap sings it is why I foudn it on under her name. But looking up the lyrics made me really focus on them. My main love of the song is the flow and the slow, relaxing instrumental part. But the lyrics made me think. What if you really felt that way about your mother? It really fits for those children who's mothers are not there. How the might feel if they could put their words this way. it really shows the hurt, the deep break inside. That made me sad then the other parts just made me think on the game. So watching the videos on it from it gave me another perspective on the song. This is someone who is not hurt by their mother. They actually hate her, she made up this demon world based on that hate. They made a horror movie out of it. So I sat and watched 30 mins of footage of bloody, ugly, violent shots of this video game that I never knew existed. All because I loved this song and wanted to download it to my ipod... So read the lyrics for yourself. Before you do...go to my playlist on the right hand side. Click on Loose Ends. So you can hear it as well.

You lie silent there before me
your tears they mean nothing to me the wind howling at the window
the love you never gave
I give to you Really don't deserve it but now there's nothing you can do
so sleep in your only memory of me my dearest mother
Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes

So insignificant sleeping dormant deep inside of me
are you hiding away lost
under the sewers maybe flying high in the clouds perhaps you're happy without me
so many seeds have been sown in the field and who could sprout up so blessedly if I had died
I would have never felt sad at all you will not hear me say I'm sorry
where is the light
wonder if it's weeping somewhere

Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes
Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye

it was always you that I despised I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes

Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
Here's a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised I don't feel enough for you to cry oh well
here's a lullaby to close your eyes

Now is that song not peaceful? Without the lyrics...The piano, the electornic touches, the drums...I just love it. But now it has put this dirty spin, dark,hateful on this song that was once beloved. So I will hope this passes or I will have to listen to that song when I am depressed or something. Here is a happy picture before I go and some nice thoughts from people about their moms and about the joys of motherhood. Now I am going to go call my mother since she is 10hrs behind me and tell her I love her.

God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers." -- Jewish proverb

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness." -- Honore' de Balzac

"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother." -- Abraham Lincoln

Not to be Cast Away

So today was the first day of Jen Jen and Myself to post our pictures of the week. I loved the serious and thoughtful spin she took with her picture. I on the other hand only tried to be artistic and put not serious spin on it except for wanting to choose the arm because it is a strong and much need body part that makes our lives so much simpler. I just wanted to have fun with the images...I took tons. I posted what I thought was the best one over on our blog. But I loved the others as well so I posted them here. I will give you a lil short description of why I took them the way I did.

<----This one to me was just to stiff, it was taken at the same place the one I choose to post was. Outside my front door. I had this awesome idea(so I thought) to have the sun be the bright light, and blur out my arm. Well winter in Belgium means no sun after um...530ish. So that never worked. But I think I adapted well with the security light.

Well I had a thought to make a heart out of my hands, did by these fake lemons in a vase I have. I really love this one. The contrast of my nails, necklace and the lemons was cool. But I could not get more of my arms in the picture. So this is more of a "human hand" pic. Sooo maybe some other time.

<-----I really wanted to show off my scars on my give it more depth than just...well an arm. Lol. So tried my dinning room light. Even tried to Photo Shop some but never got the desired effect. So here is just Another shot..this to me was lame.

So this is my "human" arm and my beloved Jax's "canine" arm. We were just laying on the rub in the upstairs office and thought this would be a good twist. If I could have edited my hand in the "STOP" postion then I might have used it.

I do not have much to say about my day today. Last night we went and had "Spaghetti Madness" at our friends house and played " Battle of the Sexes" which really did turn out to be a battle since all of us that were there are quite competive. Here is a picture of lovely Addison cheezing it up big time for the camera. I love this kid.

So off I go back to my Sex in the City Marthon Sunday. Being completely lazy for the weekend because of the week ahead has been my only thought today. So far so good!!

Catch you all around...=)

Mumblings is all I can give

Another cold, snow covered yet sunny day in good ole Belgium. I do not have much to say. Which is kinda of like all week. Figured why stop now with the trend right? I hope to bring you exciting posts next week. This week has been a test of my willpower. Ryon and I are both watching what we eat, making the lifestyle changes we said we would. I say that instead of diet, diet is temporary and most of them fail. So we have been a lil short tempered. He is the one person that if we argue or fight, even get negative with that it just leaves me mental exhausted. Why is that? But not to panic we were not fighting it is just so much easier to be lazy and enjoy the slowness of our small quiet life. I mean that is unless we are traveling. Which I am stoked to say going to Paris next Saturday for our 6th anniversary. Tonight we are to a friends house to play games and just eat. So that should be relaxing. I am bringing a veggie tray in case they serve something that is not that good for me. Which is usually the case. We all love to have dinner parties here and not go out since we are all paid in Amercian Dollar and have to live off the Euro. I would love to start doing my theme night idea. Where you choose a type of cusine and stick to that theme down to plates, cups, movie, music...dessert. Everything. I have not done one since our Cajun nite back in Sept. So off to go relax with my hubby till we leave later. Catch you all around.

Oh and I am really excited to see what picture Jen Jen took. We both post them in the morning. It was my idea this week and I choose the human arm. Just have to have it in there in some form. Go check it out further over at Two Pictures.

Pictures are my love

Okay so go to Two Friends. Two Pictures come next Monday. It will explain there what I thought would be a great way to keep in touch with a friend, get good use out of my New Fuji S5700, and to hone my photography skills. I love to take pics always have. But Instead of just capturing memories of social outings. This year I want to..well take pictures that make no sense to some and touch others. I have wishful thinking of owning a Canon Rebel XT one day, I would love a reg 35mm film camera, and a poloroid camera one day as well. Sooo not to much to ask for right? Anyways I was having trouble to sleep last night and stumbled upon a very cool gals blog. I will add a link once I ask her if it is okay if I use her name in her. But she in turn had some many wonderful photo blogs on her read list.

Soooo now I have inspiration from fellow women on taking great pictures. Okay anyways the point of this blog is to make sure if you like reading mine you add the other one...mentioned above. Oh and btw I posted two blogs but they got put into the orginal dates that I started them on. So if you want to go look for Where have the years gone and Why

See you Around

An Ode to Friends

I have been thinking about 2008, how great of a year it was. So that got me to thinking about people in my life. I wanted to say thank you to y'all. So this is going to be a long ass thank you to each person I feel blessed to have in my life, I do not know what I did in my other life to get the people I have in this one. But I love it. I am going to just randomly list they are not in order of meaning. So do not take any body's size of thank you or if their name is before yours. I care deeply for you all. As you know I am highly conscious of making sure I do not hurt any ones feelings. I will come back and continue to add to the list....I just want to make sure I thank everyone.

Your life has changed so quickly these last couple of years. You grew up fast and I think you are a great woman, sister, daughter, wife, mother and cousin to all of us lucky to have you in our life. I know some people are not close to their cousins but lucky me I am. I love you crazy girl.

Brittney- Your smile is infectious and wonderful to see. I am thankful that we made sure we got back in each others lives. You and I are kindred souls who have traveled down similar paths that left us some what broken I think. But to have come to where you are in should lift yourself up. You did it..when others said you would not. Look at all you have. It is great to see that. I know life threw you a couple of curve balls in the beg of 08' but to talk to you and hear you sound so damn happy lately is wonderful as someone who cares for you. Thanks for always giving me sound advice and always being willing to share a good meal and movie with me. Having you in my life is a great gift I will never give away. I look forward to seeing you when you get here. Miss you tons and Love you fellow Curly Q

Wow we live in Europe, it is just incredible the things we have seen and will continue to see together in our years here and as a couple. Our 6Th yr is coming up and it makes me smile in the inside more than my mouth can stretch. You are such a strong, determined person. You constantly keep me on my toes and make me want to do it all for you. Your touch can calm me, your words can move me(sometimes even to anger hehehe) we have never had a dull moment and I love you.

You are more than just the gorgeous face people see. You are such a multi-faceted person who constantly surprises me , your outlook on life, love, politics even music is great to listen to. We have been friends for more years than we can count on our hands. I love that! You being my friend is one of my many blessings I will never let go. You have been through things in life that would break a smaller person yet you get on trucking along with your flair for life. With busy schedules this year I know we will not talk as much as we want too. But that is fine. You are forever in my heart.

You are my little sister that has just shown me how much you can grow this year. You have been one of my favorite people since you were born. In true sisterly fashion you make me want to choke slam you as well. I love you goofiness rolled into the beautiful woman you are. Thank you for being such a fun loving, open-minded gal. You are not just a sister you are a friend. My sister-friend. I love you more today than I thought I could...look forward to seeing how your life will continue to UN-fold and look back fondly on your sometimes =) Especially when you followed me around in your diaper yelling "sissy".. you never have called me Bridge since you could talk. Just one more way you have to be different. Love you Aggie.

You just make me stop and cherish what a girlfriend is. You always know what to say, are willing to go on a ledge no one else will and stand proud that you did. Your vocabulary and intelligence are two things I long to have and look up to you for. Your fashion forward ways and amazing tech with make up is borderline envy/hate to see. Not really but is flawless.. You have always been such a beautiful person in my life, inner and outer. Thank you for being there when no one else was. You will never be able to know how much you mean to me..since I can never seem to tell you.

Jen-Jen aka Buttercup-
I have never seen someone go with their heart in everything they do the way you do. You have always been in some sort of "life-saver" role since I have known you. I always love to brag about my Nurse/EMT/Firefighter friend. You are the most prideful person in my life of your hertiage and I love that you are the whitest skinned Mexican on earth.hehehe You are my buttercup, bitch for life. I love how we can chat about everything and when other people in my life"could not handle me moving on" you stood by me and saw what I was going through. I always thought I hid it better. Your inner child always sneaks a peek out from the tough, perfectionist in you. I would have a broken heart if you were ever not in my life. Thank you for always being matter what.

I am so glad you moved to Vegas. You have been able to truly be yourself there. That is what I love about you. You are just matter what. And Screw anyone if they do not like you. Oh and you know I will regulate anyone who screws with you.You always can make me laugh and seem to always keep a good head on your shoulders and party like a rock star I love it. We have been friends through good and bad in both our lives. Thank you for sharing yours with me. I feel honored that someone of your caliber looks at me as a friend.

Your continuous strength inspires me. You never ask for help and yet look at how many people in life would help you without you asking. That should show you what type of person you are. Which is pretty freaking fabulous if you ask me. I hated working at Walmart in San Antonio. But the one thing It gave me was your friendship. We have partied like Rock stars, chilled at Barnes ALL DAY LONG and told each other inner feelings we would not share with others. In all those times we had fun. I love you and your beautiful boys. You enrich my life with your zest for standing on your own, your laugh is impossible not to laugh with. You are One Third of the Six Pack...and I will cherish your friendship for always.
PS. Hey I do not get mushy a lot so shut up and read it..=)

Steve R-

My love able are the only other positive thing that came from working at that store. You always do what you say. You are so responsible for your family others should be ashamed at their work ethic. I will always call you with a dirty joke or comment. Thank you for wanting to be part of my life. You are a friend I will always want in my life since you fill it with laughs and good advice for your young age. You have accomplished so much and still are not satisfied, your beautiful family should never worry with you as their backbone. I am so happy for you and Lorna and the New Ringley on the way. I will be happy when I can make that one want to come over to my house as much as Bella did.=( I do not say it enough but I luv ya Buddie..lots and lots. Thanks for always being there and trying to make me feel better.

Lil Bridget-
We both felt the same way from that time rolling our silverware at Cracker Barrel(eh) :" This girl is going to be great fun and my friend". You are such a sexy little thing rolled into one tiny, sweet and fun package. I love how you never leave a girl behind, always invited me out to places. How we lived in the same city for that year in 2005 never saw each other and yet remained friends. You are much more than people assume you are and you being someone I call a friend is something I am amazed at being able to do. You are the other One Third of the Six Pack...and I will always want you as a friend. The way you have adapted to motherhood, all you own too. Just shows that everyone can change when they want to. You gave up everything for London and she is one lucky Lil girl to have YOU AS HER PARENT. See you when you get here. I wont get all mushy and will just leave with I luv ya.

Steve M-

Thank you for taking care of my buttercup(if you even read this). You are strong man who I got to be able to know when we were just teenagers(19 counts). I am very proud to have someone in my life who has chosen your line of work. I will always feel safe in whatever city you live in. Be safe and take care of yourself have to many people who care for you. I know Ryon and I both look forward to living in the same city again. Plus I know you will let us borrow from your Blockbuster Store size movie collection. =) I do not say it enough nor talk to you enough anymore. but I miss you tons and love you dude.

My tree..a little late in the coming

So this will be quick and simple. Back in Sept or October I mentioned how I wanted to Nightmare Before Christmas for my tree this year. Well as I said no one here really had the black that I could find. Ryon and I switch off every year on who gets to choose color theme and decorations. To be works out great for us. Well in 2010 I will do the black and white. I will be buying stuff till then. Well this year was I went with my 2nd Idea. Gold, bronze, copper on a white tree. So I just wanted to show what it ended up looking like even though the it is Jan already.


Catch you all around this fab-O-lous land of the internet Later

FRIEND or FOE?????

Happy New Year Y' shoot me that it is the 3rd day of the year already. But I figure so many people told you Happy New Year on the actual day that this is okay to tell you late. Well it is a great start to my 2009. I am living in Belgium, starting school, loosing weight, getting along with all my family and friends, no DRAMA...can I repeat NONE in my life. SAY WHAT? It is soo refreshing to be able to say that. Now I have friends that have drama so that does cause some for me because I am one of those friends that when I love someone I feel what they are...but still I can handle others problems not my own. =) But no drama is actually "in" my life. Knock on wood. Anyways so 2009 feels like a great year. Do you feel it? We have THE FIRST BLACK cool is that? Our economy is doing kinda bad but hey it can only go up. Plus I think this will help people but what is really important back in focus, cut down on things they do not need, enjoy what they have and work harder for what they don't/ Enough of the super serious stuff though. This is a fun blog.

I was sitting there talking with my wonderful sexy know this guy?
Anyways we did not go to Paris, France for the New Year. Alas I know you all are sad for us. =) So we stayed home. We started to talk about our ready....NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS! Shocker....I am wondering when the trend to make them started? I was telling Ryon..."Are we setting ourselves up for failure by making these?" "Shouldn't we just call them what they are? GOALS. Just plain ole goals, and to possibly not fail them like YOU KNOW YOU DO every year. Go ahead and just break them down into monthly goals? Ryon says that people like to do that cause you are "starting the year off hopeful, for change, for you doing things you did not". He says so what if people fail them by March. At least they tried.

SO I agree yet disagree, I too made some resolutions which are going great 3 days in. lol. But at same time I want to make myself make other monthly goals. I want to be able to say I finished them. Would I be the first person to achieve their resolutions?? Who knows. Soooo that was all I wanted to post this blog about that I think they are more of a problem, Ryon says they help people out. What do you my dear readers? Which is one or two of you I guess since I AM LAME. =) What do you think? Tell me your thoughts and share your resolutions.

Here are mine

1. Take one picture a day, so that I have 365 random pictures at the end of the year.
2. Mail things out on time, every birthday and Holiday. (because I have this hate for the Post Office it never happens, my grandparents where Postal Clerks till they retired...I should go ahead and get over my stupid feelings)
3. Typical girl one------loose weight, stay healthily.
4. Quit procrastinating. Go ahead and do it right then like I used to. Before moving here 7 months ago and becoming quit comfy with the slowness and turned that into LAZY.
5. Actually do my volunteer work.

Okay those are it......

I will keep working on the blogs I have saved as drafts and start to post more. I know I need too. So I will see you all late rs.
