My birthday wish

I was in search for a ghillie suit for Nick ( its a weird thing you can wear when in the military or in his case paintballing) up in 29 Palms. It was such a beautiful drive, and I took this shot and was in awe of the clouds and the trees and all the beauty along the way... But I heard about this a while ago and decided to see how far away from 29 Palms it was. Turns out, its not far at all and my birthday is coming up and I WANT A SOUND BATH!!!!!! So theres my birthday wish (hint hint Tom)
Oh and btw, no ghillie suit at the 29 Palms military surplus, only the netting to make one. So in the next 24 hours I will be attempting to make one for Nick before Xmas, nothing like waiting til the last minute.

When it rains it pours

In a nutshell, I got a new close up camera lens from Tom and I love it!!!!! My car window wont go up which sucks when its pouring rain, also the heater wont turn off.  I took a class and its over and the kids are out of school for the next 2 weeks leaving us plenty of time to relax a little. I baked low-fat gluten free, organic, fair trade cookies for Steveos 9th birthday and I was told they were actually yummy. Now that I have more time, I can finally read my new book on Anthrax vaccines being tested on the military, maybe perhaps Tom might want to read it when Im finished. I cant wait for Nick and Steveo to open there xmas presents, I almost want them to open them early, but I will wait.

Barbie and Ken

Being the thrifty bitch that I am, I purchased a Barbie book written in 1964. It was worth the 2 bucks. Heres a little snippet.

"Barbie didn't know whether to be glad or sorry when Ken was offered an exciting job that would take him to a distant city. Ken couldn't make up his mind, either...until another girl tried to do it for him!"
Oh shit. Some whore is moving in on Barbie's man. That's okay Ken was most likely using Barbie as his "beard" anyway. And she doesn't seem to bright, so she probably wouldn't have a clue about this other "girl" if were happening right in front of her.
I cant believe my mom bought me Barbies. What kind of message does that send to a half Mexican brown haired brown eyed girl with curly hair? I did learn how to cut hair on my Barbies though, most of them had a stylish mullet or butch haircut, so I guess they weren't a complete waste of my moms money.

Creative ADHD, Eco-friendly Xmas, and trying to be kind

This year, I will make a statement to the few people I will give gifts to, by using recycled materials only.
I found cool vintage postcards at a thrift store, made a frame with markers and then framed the frame with the picture. Make sense? Hard to explain see the picture.
I want to learn to sew. I will be a sewing fool when I do learn, and everyone can look forward to receiving something hand made for birthday gifts.
I have been fighting off a sore throat with Yerba Mate tea with milk and honey, so yummy, but the sore throat is still here.
I have had this little santa since I was a little girl, it was my moms when she was little too. Steveo says he's creepy with a sinister grin. Silly boy.
I am trying to be nice when snowbirds drive to slow, patient when Steveo talks a mile a minute, and truthful with my feelings while communicating with someone that hurt my feelings by not showing up to my wedding because she had to "work" only to see her facebook post about how she went to the movies and had a blast, and keeps calling because she wants me to attend HER wedding to photograph it. Childish, I know. I just have a habit of not speaking up and letting people walk all over me, not to say that's what this person is doing, I just think she has a tendency to be selfish at times, and with school, xmas, recovering from my wedding/honeymoon/thanksgiving/still havent taken the lanterns down from the wedding reception, and my entire family having birthdays this month, my time is valuable and I wish to spend it with those that deserve it.
Okay, that's all I have time for at the moment, I'm looking forward to the new year with new goals and surrounding myself with loved ones.
