disrespected yo!

oh man. 
we don't need to talk about it...
I'd rather focus on:

1) chat with a personal trainer today,
& finding a new way forward?!
2) a quiet work day
3) deep convo with Bea
4) a glass of wine
5) coconut cream pie for dessert!  

oh and yesterday's picture was an old x-ray of my back,
doesn't mean anything except, 
well... I might be revisiting that injury again.
I'm seeing a new dr., hopefully this week...

I dress this way just to keep them at bay, 'cause Halloween is everyday

while I am completely frustrated on many levels, 
I still want to focus on what is gnarly and copacetic right now...
so 5 GOOD things:

1) kid piles (& star wars movies!)
2) melting moments
3) that bit of sunshine we experienced yesterday
4) Italian Sweet Créme coffeemate
(I blame KG, she hooked me up!  : .)
5) remembering...

I'm off to visit my boyfriend!!!  ; .P

Monday, May 16, 2011

believe me when I say that I got something for his punk ass...

I'm feeling a little feisty right now...
I got my allergy shots a couple hours ago 
and had a reaction,
itchy hives.
To stop that in its tracks,
the doctor on call gave me a shot of epinephrine,
I guess to avert potential anaphylaxis.
While I was sitting there twitching,
the doc also made me take a dose of benadryl.
I asked if they would cancel each other out, heh!
The doctor and 2 nurses (I am sooo important!)
asked if there was anyone they should call.
Uh yeah, NO.
I feel fine now...still a bit itchy.

OK, on with my list of good things for today:

1) This idea!  
One of the engineers @ work
 heard I like old school typewriters and
 sent me the link,
cool yeah?!
2) Distributing these cookies to 
people who make me laugh!
3) 3 more days of work this week!
4) finding perfect gifts for kid friends!
5) Keanu Reeves movies, sigh.

Scrapping the Music - Dream Big

This rounds challenge at Scrapping the Music is 
Dream Big by Ryan Shupe & The RubberBand.

I met Sharon Wheat while visiting an art show in SF 
and was invited to her studio to play.

She was teasing me about having an itchy
photographic trigger finger, 
which set off a gigglefest. 
Such a joy-full moment!

: .)

Come and play along!!!

I stayed with Scott and his family 
and Scott took me on a tour of the
Columbia River Gorge
(where they filmed some of the Twilight movies).
We ate and drank a lot...  : .)
And after viewing prehistoric Sturgeon 
that were more than 7 feet long

gorgeous boy!

this pix has nothing to do with this post, but I love it, so I'm puttin' it here.

I've been neglecting this lil ole blog.  
I realized that when I had to stop running, 
all my motivation & creativity just flew away.
I think once I stop feeling sorry for myself, 
I can get back on track...

anyway, to reroute that negativity into some positivity,
 I think I'll restart my 5 good things lists...
I've been enjoying this blog.

for today...

("everyone wants candy, and I've got candy to give." eye candy, heh!)

2) speaking of eye candy  
the man-boy at the gym today with the biceps, hee!!!

3) dinner @  Aquis with Jack!
I wish I could have had a Sangria Swirl,

ok, tired, but great!

5) bare minerals make-up, sparkly lipgloss & micro-fiber mascara

Scrapping the Music - Falling Slowly

The current challenge for Scrapping the Music is 

My homage to hummingbirds continues,
I was inspired by a card from my friend Esther.

I really wanted to do some hand embroidery, so I incorporated it with my lyric choice,
which I'd like to think of as a message to the hb babies.

Doncha just love the effect of salt in watercolor???

(click the photo to see a larger image, the smaller one doesn't do the piece justice!)
