It's my

Birthday eve and for the first time in forever it does not feel like my birthday!  Instead I am feeling bummed about not being able to share the day with My Esa, feeling excited for those that are going to C8 ( Star Wars Celebration Orlando ), but also bummed for the fact that Froggy and I can't make in!

I'm also fighting a cold, so my mind is more spacey then normal!

But on the flipside is that I have gotten a few early birthday gifts. Also got to enjoy two movie dates with Froggy! Been able to reconnect with an old friend! Been able to talk with my east coast and the Fab 4 are as close as ever (even if you don't get to talk as much as we would like) !

So I am just trying to remember that each day is a new day filled with good and bad!

Regarding today

My friend Steven said it best :

"When Democrats are in office, Government passes laws that nobody knows the details of.

When Republicans are in office, unknown laws are dead on arrival."

Here are my thoughts - Is one way better, I am not really sure if one can say at this point in but I will let you my dear readers be the judge of that!

What I do know is that these are interesting times that we are living in. Each day is a different spin of the hour glass, for better or worse we just keep putting one foot in front of the other!

Its been a year

Since I lost my job and not much has really changed. I am still jobless but now have an idea as to what I really want to do. Sometimes I still feel like a failure but I am learning to get past that. I am getting better with organizations skills so that is some improvements.

The thing that has stood out the most is the support from my friends and family.  They have put up with good days and the bad. They are still by my side though it all, giving encouragement and supporting words and deeds.

I am so thankful for my husband who has not looked down on me, but instead lifted me up. He has been my rock and safe harbor in this storm. I am so very lucky and thankful for having him by my side.

This is the start of a new year and I have hope that things are going to work out and this time next year, there will be even more improvements.

Valentines day 2017

We believe in celebrating each other each and every day, so Valentines day is almost just like any other day to us! But it's still fun to get dolled up for a night  out on the town!



We started the night at one of our favorite places for drinks and apps! 


We decided that the place was getting a bit crowded and loud (we could hardly hear each other speak). So we decided to grab dinner and eat at home while watching a movie! 



It may not have been the most romantic but after all it was the most perfect for us! We both had fun and got to spend time laughing and talking with each other! And in the end isn't that what Valentines day all about, just being able to be with the ones you love and spend time together?

14 years

Tomorrow (February 1st 2017) will mark 14 years since we lost the The Columbia and the seven brave men and women that were on board, may the never be forgotten!
please say a prayer for the familes of the Columbia 7!

"My fellow Americans, this day has brought terrible news and great sadness to our country. At 9 o'clock this morning, Mission Control in Houston lost contact with our space shuttle Columbia. A short time later, debris was seen falling from the skies above Texas. The Columbia's lost. There are no survivors.

Onboard was a crew of seven -- Colonel Rick Husband, Lieutenant Colonel Michael Anderson, Commander Laurel Clark, Captain David Brown, Commander William McCool, Dr. Kalpana Chawla, and Ilan Ramon a colonel in the Israeli air force.

These men and women assumed great risk in this service to all humanity. In an age when space flight has come to seem almost routine, it is easy to overlook the dangers of travel by rocket and the difficulties of navigating the fierce outer atmosphere of the earth.

These astronauts knew the dangers, and they faced them willingly, knowing they had a high and noble purpose in life. Because of their courage and daring and idealism, we will miss them all the more.

All Americans today are thinking, as well, of the families of these men and women who have been given this sudden shock and grief. You're not alone. Our entire nation grieves with you. And those you loved will always have the respect and gratitude of this country.

The cause in which they died will continue. Mankind is led into the darkness beyond our world by the inspiration of discovery and the longing to understand. Our journey into space will go on.

In the skies today, we saw destruction and tragedy. Yet farther than we can see, there is comfort and hope.

In the words of the prophet Isaiah, "Lift your eyes and look to the heavens. Who created all these? He who brings out the starry hosts one by one and calls them each by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing."

The same creator who names the stars also knows the names of the seven souls we mourn today. The crew of the shuttle Columbia did not return safely to Earth, yet we can pray that all are safely home.

May God bless the grieving families, and may God continue to bless America."

The sisterhood of the seatbelt purses

When we first arrived in cali, I notice a lot of my new friends had seatbelt purses. I had never seen one before and thought that they were the koolest thing ever! Our first Christmas In cali I was gifted a seatbelt purses of my own gifted to me by my new Cali friends.

It was so much more than a purse, it meant to me that I had been accepted as part of the group. I thought of the purse and still think of it as a sign of everlasting ffriendships. That people here in this new town liked me for me.

Sure I miss my east coast friends, but it's nice having the safe feeling of friendship here on the west coast too.

Makes you wonder

I thought that I had friends, I mean I have people who I hang out with and we get along. Or at lest I think we do. But then I see them out doing stuff together with out me. So does that mean we are only friends when it's convenient for them and does that really make us friends. Because sometimes I feel like I am forgotten and not as close with peeps as I once thought. Sure this week I been sick (fighting a bronchitis flair up) but it would have been nice to have been asked.

At lest I still have the fab four! We may not talk as much but we know that if one needed to talk at 2am someone would be there, so I guess in that way I am lucky! I have my awesome hubby and amazing kitty cat! My family and the Cali Crew!
