Shut up

Have you ever thought that ummm you might talk to much? Share too much??

Well after 33 years I got it with that stick today in a bad way. 

By nature I am a defender, a lover, a doer, a tell it the way I see it kind of person. 

Well that just doesn't benefit me in all areas - professionally and personally! 

I am realizing that about 85% (maybe more) of my issues are self inflicted. Go figure.... 

Well I learn things the hard way and it is pounded into my head! I hope pray anyway....

As I was looking  on Facebook I ran across this quote that I think I will have tattooed on my wrist to forever catch myself...

Never miss a great opportunity to shut up.

It's that great!!! 

Here is too shutting up!!!!! 

Grandma 2

As another day goes by and you are still in the hospital I started thinking of very selfish reAsons as why you can not leave yet.

One - grandma I cannot sew!! 
Two - I want to redecorate the kids bathroom and I planned on you sewing the curtains for me 
Three - stroganoff I can't make that and we love it

Grandma I love you so much and these are just selfish reasons for me to want you to stay.

But I am praying for you and thinking if you.

I love you grandma!!! 


Grandma I love you so much. I am sitting here praying for to be healthy, you to be happy, you to not hurt anymore.

You have been a strong woman my whole life and it makes my heart hurt to see you in pain.

So instead of seeing you in pain I am going to fill my head, my heart and my thoughts to the fun times! 

I can remember sitting between you and grandpa in that little tiny yellow Datsun - "helping" the pool business.

I can remember you swimming for hours wih me. 

I can remember dying like 1000 eggs for Easter and man was that a blast.

I can remember making you the worst coffee know to man because I wanted you up for Christmas morning.

I can remember you picking me up from kindergarten in our huge yellow bus/motor home.

I can remember you always strong always there always driving that big yellow Ford! 

I love you grandma! 

So grandma I love you - we love you! We are all praying on this.

Prayers of all kind our welcomed - our grandmother went into the hospital today and she is in the ccu. 


I think I am have lived a very sheltered life. If it isn't within a 25 mile radius and off of the freeway that I was born near I don't like to branch out.

New food - what's that? I stick what I know - not adventurous at all.

Well #5987 that I love my husband - we are getting out there (haha just LA but still).

We bought the kids tickets to. Frozen at the El Captain Theatre - amazing. However walking around LA is so beyond different for me - out of my comfort zone. But today was a blast! We even walked through The Grove and The Farmers Market (wouldn't eat the food but still a wonderful time).

So as I sit there in the car for the looong drive home (53 miles haha) I am just beaming because I know that I am growing and I am slowly kicking my sheltered life to the curb - watch out ! 

Enjoy your new year because I am.
Still finalizing my goals for 2014....stay tuned.
