what's new? not much i guess.
i spend my days at work and they just seem to be going by faster and faster. i spend my evenings with people i love and they love me back. two nights a week i am at the warm and friendly home of the pagayonan's. i love, love, love my girls. tara, samona and ella. otherwise known as mummer higgins, mo-mo and bebe. cute, cuddly, fun and full of love. i feel so at home and part of the family. i don't know how i lived my life without them before i had the great fortune to meet them.
weekend days come and i get to spend time with my grandkids. gabriel is so smart and the most loving boy i a have know since his father was his age. lily just turned 2 last week and she is so much fun. she always makes us laugh. i am so, so blessed to have my kids and grandkids. i love them so much. kelsey roo is so very cute and smart and loving. always a princess and ready to play with her nana. i wish i could see them all everyday. i don't know how grandmothers who live far away from their kids and grandkids survive.
my mom and i got a nintendo wii and we have had so much fun playing mario party 8 and the disney princess enchanted journey game! we pre ordered animal crossing and it should arrive tomorrow. i am really looking forward to playing friday, saturday and sunday. my mom is so much fun she is just a little kid stuck in a grandma's body like me. i am so grateful to have her in my life.
i miss my friends because i don't get to see them as much as i used to, since i am on the road a lot and in sonoma for most of the weekends. i don't get to scrapbook every weekend like i used to.
i have done liz's creating intentions kits every month and i love them. they have helped me grow so much and changed my life. i wish everyone i know would do them and learn what i have from them.
one last thought..........Twilight comes out this weekend and i am going to storm the movie theater!! how about you?

Liz has really created a method of scrapbooking that can change your life. She is such a smart and beautiful woman. Listen to her video message and check out her web site. Look back often as she will be coming out with new Creating Intentions kits, DVDs, book and retreats.
It's truly amazing.
My wish for all of you is to awaken to your inner thoughts and intentions and let them inspire you into action.

i have recently begun living the gypsy life. due to an issue with me husband i recently felt the immediate need to leave my house for an indefinite, maybe forever, amount of time. so i am now living the gypsy life by "living" at my mom's in sonoma and commuting to berkeley to keep my job. to cut down on the driving miles i am staying at one of the kid's house on mondays and then staying at my friend liz's house on tuesdays and wednesdays since i "nanny" for her on those evenings anyway. so far, the gypsy life is not so bad. living out of the boxes and bags in the back of my car, realizing just how little a person really needs to survive the daily living of working by day and babysitting by night. since i don't have my computer hooked up anywhere.......i will probably not be blogging much except my long boring word bloggings, no pictures of projects or grandkids or interesting things like that.
emotionally i am feeling better than i have in months and months. it is so amazing what taking care of yourself and not worrying about how to fix someone else can do for you! so anyone who was worried about me, worries be gone...........i am fine. i am even better than fine.
for all of you who lent your ears, shoulders, arms and homes to me in the past few weeks, Thank You all. i have the best friends and family a girl could ever have.
i will keep you all apprised of the gypsy life as the days go by.

i could not leave out a picture of my sweet grandog penny. she is a chug (part pug part chihuahua) and she belongs to my youngest girl nicole and her boyfriend cory. she went swimming too with her life jacket on but i did not get any pics of that. darn it.
so anyway, now my mountain vacation is over and i am back to the land of reality. my husband lost his job, my car got towed from in front of my house yesterday due to an issue that is making it not pass smog so i had a sticker on the back window with the extension from the dmv but it apparently was expired the end of july so since i had it parked on the street instead of in the driveway they towed it away, the bastards! and it is going to cost me almost 400 dollars to get it back tomorrow. welcome home. i know life could be much worse and there are people so much worse off than me but i am just having a crappy time! i had a super bad day at work today and spent some time hiding in the bathroom, crying. it was not a good day at all, but i got invited by a friend tonight to share in a celebration of something special in her life and that made life so much better. i spent the evening among friends, laughing and talking and eating. just what i needed. so tomorrow i will spend a third of my paycheck rescuing my car from the pokey and then i will somehow figure out a way to pay the bills, the rent and buy groceries and pull myself up out of this pit i am in and trust in god to make things right again. and maybe even get a winter trip in to shaver lake and for sure visit it again next summer. somebody please slap me and tell me to get a grip and stop being so down and keep my chin up. come on, do it, slap me, a good one upside the head and tell me that there are people out there who have it way, way worse than me!!! i know it's true but it just isn't helping to think about that too much right now!! ok, throw me some cheese to go with my whine and i will shut up.
love to all of you out there that i love and hold so dear to my heart. you all know who you are don't you?

here we are me, bonnie, linda and rain. i will have to scan a picture of us from high school and post it for comparison!!!
ok, so see what happens when i don't post for a while? i end up posting a huge long boring thing!!
but i do have one more thing to tell you all. a few nights ago i created with liz pagayonan's creating intentions kit which you can find here http://www.creatingintentions.com/ or click on the link to her blog in my list in the right margin. people, you need to run not walk to your computer and go to her site and buy this kit and do it now. it will change your life, i am not kidding. seriously, it is amazing. liz has created a method for creating art that comes from the depths of your soul. it is absolutely amazing. you need to go to her site and blog and read about it and what it all means. i just don't know how to explain it like she does. it truly is changing my life.
ok, i will shut up now and go to bed, it is late and i do have to get up for work in the morning.
well, one more picture can't hurt, can it? here is my grandaughter kelsey dressed in my clothes being silly. love this girl bunches and bunches.

i just saw a blog post of some guys i know who are so in love with each other and have two wonderful babies and they were finally able to get married legally. they posted pictures of the whole thing on their blog. it made me cry. i am just so happy for them. it is not for me to judge others and say whether it is right or wrong for people of the same sex to be together. i leave that to God and i know that there are people who believe that it is written in the bible that it is wrong but i myself have never read that in the bible and i believe in a loving God that would never want people to be miserable with a life of trying to be someone they are not, so i believe that if you are gay, so be it. who cares! i want so badly to live in a world where there are no prejudices. that all people love each other no matter the color of their skin or their sexual orientation or their beliefs. so, i am very happy that people of the same sex can now be married just like people of the opposite sex who are in love and want to share their lives with each other. let's leave the judging to God and focus on ourselves instead of criticising others for who they are.
see, i am being all serious and not posting about artfully creative things!!! i guess i am just going to have to be who i am, and just blog about the things i think about and want to talk about. and
hopefully have an artfully creative thing to throw in when the creative mojo hits. i so envy all of you who are so talented and are able to creative beautiful things all the time. i just don't know where my mojo has gone but i want it back. maybe i will take the time soon to do the mdw wishchicks challenges and that will spark some creativity. happy day to all of you, i hope i have not bored you to death.
