|I wandered around town a bit this weekend. I started off the weekend feeling out of focus. I felt a little lost in my own skin.|
It is always hard when I do not have my kids. So I decided to keep busy. I took a great walk to Cedros. I had a nice dinner with a very old friend and I took a really long bath. I wrote down all the things I needed to be grateful for. I planned all my goals for September and I can't wait to share them with you. So now it's Sunday and I feel way better. I get my kids in the morning and I got new paints...
Hope you had a fun weekend..

Learning Learning Learning
Why does growing up just fly by? The next thing you know you are 40, not married and you have 3 amazing kids. You are trying to make smarter choices and for some reason ... Your insides are screaming really G? Not only is it time to make smarter choices but I need to start taking owner ship for my poor choices. I would like to share a story my girl friend told me. I hadn't talked to her in a while. We went through a friendship breakup. She said she missed me. I have been missing her as well. I proceeded to ask her why we had not spoken. I asked her why we hadn't talked. She said G you stood me up for dinner...
Wow, really... that hurt!!!I can't remember why I stood her up, but obviously I hurt her feelings and I feel horrible about that... The good news is we are having dinner Friday and I am going to take ownership and apologize for m actions. I love my friend and it sucks that I hurt her. I am choosing to learn and grow from this life experience. Ignoring the situation does not work. In fact it cost me dearly as I had not talked to my friend in years. Heck and I didn't even know why we broke up. I feel like a light went on in my head. I am looking at things a little bit differently. I am choosing to grow.

|This girl was funny she called herself the photo bandit.|
|This was the view from the last bus as we pulled up to the starting line... Can you see all the little runners?|
|One of my favorite photo's... It's my dad and I.. I felt like saying wonder twin power activate, shape of Cheetah, and my dad could be Ice water. It was already 77 and humid at 6:30 in the morning...|
|I was so happy to see these ladies. I was fore sure happier to see them then they were to see me..|

I am ready for the weekend. I have my kids this weekend and it looks like my beautiful 17 year old will be joining me too. (she prefers her friends to me right now) We are going to the movies to see "Franken Weenie."
It looks really cute, artistic and heck all my kids want to see it, so I am in. I also have a half marathon this Sunday. We are also planning a trip to the water park. This week I have been painting and journaling my heart out. My kids and I all heard this song on my way to work. Paola introduced us to it and felt it was quite shareable... TGIF is only one day away...

Have a Great Day
Tuesday, August 14, 2012
I got up early this morning and since I am not running today... I had about an hour of free time. I went down stairs and made a little skirt for myself. I have been trying for a while to find the time to make my vision into a reality. It's not great but I love it and really that's all that matters.
When I was done I looked around and noticed all the extra fabric I had. I thought to myself... my Blythe doll needs a new outfit... I packed up my little travel sewing box and after lunch I made Lilly Octopus a new dress and head band.
Doesn't she look fantastic? She is such a fashionista!!!
I really do need a Blythe Doll with black hair like me... Don't get me wrong, I love my sweet pink haired doll. In fact I ordered here some cool glasses today..
I want to share with you the cutest contest ever. I found this blog yesterday when Bella and I were looking for some cute Blythe pictures.
This site is hosting a Blythe Olympics contest... You have to check it out. I think it's quite possibly the cutest contest ever. Have a great day and stay cool...

This last weekend I had a dream that I had a house in the mountains. As I progressed through my day I thought what about Palomar Mountain. That's kinda close to my house. I went on line and the dreaming began. Then there before my eyes, I saw two cute houses that I thought I could afford. After thinking about it long and hard I showed it to my kids. Suddenly we were all living on the mountain. Isabella was so exited about the possibility of spending Christmas in the mountains. Christopher loved the idea of having a tree house... I loved the idea of being outside all the time. I sat and thought about running thru the mountains, trees and looking at the stars at night...
After dreaming a little dream I told my kids we need to keep an open mind and check out these houses. Just so you know Palomar Mountain is not close to my current residence. If we collectively feel the drive is to far than so be it... I told them to trust their intuition and asked them to share their feelings. With that we were on our way. It took us two hours to get to the houses... For me it was way to long of a drive but I waited for there input... The first house was not we expected... Having said that we took a ride around the mountain. We sat on a rock discussed how they were feeling... I think collectively we all felt it wasn't going to work. Isabella did suggest the possibility of home schooling. Christopher added that we could get two homes one for during the week and the other for weekends. I let them know neither of those were realistic options and with that we headed home... I was really glad we went on our little dream trip. My kids and I spent 4 quality hours together and I was grateful to have all three of my three kids with me... Sometimes just taking the time to dream is worth whatever trip you encounter along the way.
Have a dream filled weekend!!!

So today my little sister woke up feeling not so great. So I thought to myself...What can we make for her to brighten her day..
|My little sister helped me. She has cute little chubby hands that I just want to kiss to all the time.|
|We continued to cut..|
|Then in no time at all.. We were ready.. We had our pieces and it was time to sew...|
|Then Mama Owl was born.|
|Suddenly she flew into the sky..|
|She flew and flew|
|Mama owl was so happy she even did a flip.|
|Here I am she said... ready to love ( check out the head band) She is a cool mama owl.|
|She stopped to say hi to everyone in the majestic garden..|
|She flew into my little sisters hands and felt happy..|
|Mama owl even came with a little heart..Its not perfect but its been mended.|
|Then mama owl lived happily ever after...|
