Ya it’s Saturday. But I’m just happy that I finally am able to write at all. It’s obvious I haven’t been on here for awhile and there are plenty of good reasons why. If you are interested in what has been going on you can check it out on my shop blog here. I just really don’t feel like writing that all up again. And also I don’t want to relive some of those feelings I had while writing it.
So now it’s time to do this confession thing. It will be pretty random, but that’s just who I am.
♥ I can tell that I’ve been struggling hard care lately with the lack of blogging. It has also affected me in pretty much everything else.
♥ I really hate going to funerals. But at the same time I feel that it refreshes me to not take things for granted and to live each day as if it was your last.
♥ Because of this I’m determined to some things I’ve been wanting to do. Just because I want to. Like learning new languages.
♥ My plans are to study Spanish, French, and Italian.
♥ I know very random, but I have my reasons.
♥ I have also been reevaluating bigger things in my life. Like to not worry about what others thing so much anymore. I won’t lie, I hate making enemies. But sometimes no matter how much you try to make things right or how nice and giving you try to to be, sometimes those people are just plain dicks and don’t deserve YOUR friendship anyway. So really, quit forcing it. Move on to people that do care and focus on making every moment count with them instead.
♥ Regarding my last comment, I am VERY thankful for the people that I do talk to. Everyday. You mean the world to me. I love you I love you I love you. You make everything run so much smoother and have this charm that always seems to make me smile. YOU ARE AMAZING.
♥ Also I’ve had to make some very big decisions to cut certain people out of my life. It was difficult. If I am going to try and have a happy life, I can’t have their negativity poisoning every moment. I can’t have them twist my every word into something bad when really it’s not like that, but they refuse to listen. I can only try so much. I can only give so much to you before I can tell it’s taking a toll on MY family life.
♥ It’s really hard to be motivated to do anything when you have two major events happen in a row. I know that I will bounce back and I’m hoping that it will kick in soon. I can tell that in ways I’m trying to fake certain feelings, but really…….it will only get me so far.
♥ I have a lot of major changes I need to make in my life, but I’m a little overwhelmed where to start.
I can’t promise right now that I’ll be better at blogging. I’m still grieving in ways of losing two people so close together. One through cancer and one because differences in opinions has torn us apart. I think in ways I’m still in shock and numb, but I know that today I am better than where I was last week. And I know next week I’ll be better than I am today. I have a wonderful opportunity that I’m hoping will happen. And if I do I will for sure be sharing the good news. This will probably be the best news I’ve had all year.
Regarding my ankle issue, it looks like I WON’T be getting surgery. I have nerve damage that we are trying to work on in other ways. I’m also going to physical therapy and that seems to be helping. Even though I’ve only been twice.
Now it’s time to start my day. And to find the motivation to get me off of this incredibly comfy couch. Every time I try to get up it seems to suck me back in. (But then I remember I have some shopping to do and it seems to make everything easier) 😉
Goodbye for now. I hope you have a great weekend.
Hello friends. I am VERY happy that it’s Friday. For some reason this week especially has made me long for Friday even more. And I’m very happy it’s finally come to greet me.
So time to confess my week!
♥ I went to dinner with some dear friends this week. And I LOVED it! K, I know you may be thinking big deal! But I haven’t seen these people since December and it took everything in my power to not squeal like I was 5! 🙂
♥ I’m so excited because I have some new print ideas brewing in my head and I can’t wait to share! (I think I actually got a little dizzy because I got a little too happy….Hmmmmmm)
♥ Kids had Spring Break this week. I admit. It was extremely rough. They were off of school, but I still had to work. They were not liking this at all and wanted every ounce of my attention which I could not give. It got messy. 😀 (made up with constant kisses and hugs. And letting them play the WII!)
♥ I have another blog interview coming up and spilled something I don’t share with many people. I guess I can give you a sneak preview and share here. Ready?……………………..I can do an AMAZING impression of a goat. My hubby is VERY proud and shows me off to his friends. 🙂
♥ So I did something dumb today. Today was a good ankle day. So I thought, hmmmm….maybe I’m getting better and not realizing it! So while fixing the kiddo’s lunch today, I put a little pressure on my ankle. Not a TON, but enough that I was thinking, hey……this is ok!……WRONG!!!. It started to KILL me. I couldn’t even put ANY pressure on it. So needles to say, won’t be doing that again. Walking on it will not help it heal. 😉
♥ So I like contests. Do you like contests? Because I came up with a fabulous idea to have some art dedicated to you. I’m very excited to share and there is virtually no work on your end accept to send me your idea of a print you would like to see. And it will be named after you. Isn’t it kinda fun to have something that’s you? I will be selling the print in my shop and you will be getting one as well. 😀 Totally worth it! I’ll give a date for submission soon! 🙂
Well now it’s time to finish enjoying my weekend. Starting with going to bed since it is pretty late. But I have some very special friends that are coming to visit tomorrow and I must be well prepared and ready. 😀
Have a good weekend loves!

No, I’m not trying to sound like a jerk. I really thought we had a chance. We were doing SO great. But at the end, this thought popped in my head. I was sad to see them lose. I was also sad because The Jazz has been through a lot this year and even though I haven’t followed sports very much this time, (been lost in a lots of other things!)I felt because I was there, I needed to root for my home team.
Here we are on our way to see the Jazz/Lakers game. (I have a problem with accidentally cutting off his face in pics. Oops. ) I forgot how much of a nightmare it is to find parking. Let alone handicapped parking for my poor crippled foot.
Finally after finding some ok parking, the hop in was quite the challenge. I’m getting to the point of being a pro on my crutches so walking in wasn’t at bad as I thought. It was just tiring. But then…..we got to the stairs. WOW. We sat in the upperbowl I was convinced that I would walk up with my crutches, but my hubs was convinced it would take another hour we didn’t have. So I ended up getting a piggy back ride up the stairs. I felt guilty. His poor back has been through SO much and carrying me UP A FLIGHT OF STAIRS is not an easy task. But I have to say, it was cute seeing all the reactions he was getting for being so brave.
This seems SO far away. So now you have an idea how going up those stairs was quite the task. But after finally settling down in our seats, I didn’t realize how much I would appreciate and yet hate my right ear. Weird? I know. But as I was going to talk about in my previous post, I had an opportunity of sitting next to “Utah” Lakers fans. I know it’s fun rooting for the teams you like and bla bla…but Derek and I have this thing about rooting for your home team because….well…it’s YOUR home team.
But during the game I was quickly realizing that my poor ear was going to be in pain for the rest of the night. My left ear was great because Derek was sitting on the left side of me.
But I ended up sitting next to the LOUDEST Laker fan there. My ear was aching. He wasn’t just cheering….it was like someone was getting massacred and he was either a witness or doing the massacring. And he wouldn’t stop. Even when there wasn’t much going on, he kept going. My head was swimming with ideas of telling him to take it down a notch or just deal with it because we were having fun. Luckily at this time the lortab officially hit my system and I was able to bear with it a little more.
Even though Derek was super tired, I was in constant pain with my ankle and my ear slowly starting to bleed, we did enjoy ourselves very much. We even had the opportunity to see John Stockton there. And I even was able to sneak a pic of him smiling!!!! See!!
It was SO nice to get out of the house and it NOT be because I’m going to the doctors. Sometimes I forget what it’s like out there because me and my couch have ended up best friends. I’ll be SO glad when I can have everything back to normal. I felt like I was going to die with all that walking on my crutches. I even had to take a couple breaks because my hands and leg were starting to give out on me.
So friends and family, send all your healing rays! I need to heal!!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
