Its June Already!

OMG. I can't believe how fast time as gone by. So much has happened since my last post. The greatest bit of news is that my son has moved into his new apartment, started his new job and is starting new journeys in life! I am so proud of this young man. He allowed me to help him fix the place up and of course allowed everyone to help move him to his 3rd floor nest with no elevator! It is a wonderful place and he should be very happy.

Hubby and me took a break and drove down to Disneyland for a few days, It was nice just to get away. Saw Mickey and told him Hello from everyone. The best fun I had was playing with my phone during down time sending crypted pics of myself to my friend Jenn's little kiddos. They are disney fans of had great fun guessing where I was in the photos and they were very good at it. Fun game.

Midget turned 3 years old on the 1st of June. What a milestone for her. We went to the park just the two of us and we played ball for a bit. She enjoyed the one on one time with me.

Buddy is turning into a sturdy  "little man". Thats what we nicked named him or at least that is one of many nicknames. the latest is Gomez. Hubby is convinced he looks like Gomez Addams. He is a lovly little dog and He still growls when I kiss him!

Haven't done much quilting or stitching. I have been in terrible pain at the ankles and knees. Its hard to concentrate and be creative when you are hurting. I will get a handle on that.

Mother's Day at the Beach was WONDERFUL!. Had a great time with mom and sisters. Rode the roller coaster at the boardwalk with my sister and niece and ate corn dogs, ice cream and giant doughnuts. It felt good to just relax in the sand all day and breathe the sea air. More beach day a in my future for sure!

Its All Good!

Well after a very long fall/winter season of doing nothing but work work work, I quit work. I just could not handle the stress and the harrassment I was enduring. The hours were long, the shifts very unrealistic and I have been in such pain in my ankles due to falling off a ladder. Enough was enough and I have realized that my hubby, my children and my health are what I should be focusing on. I have enough quilting fabric hoarded into my little quilt room that I could go on the buried alive hoarding show! So the focus is life and living it.

I plan to clean up my quilting room, prioritize my projects and get organized. I will spend one day a month going to a natural place such as the beach and just relax. I am going to work with my Buddy and get him trained. He is the most out of control pup in the world and needs some love and attention. I love him to death and just can't wait until he minds me better.

Leonard is Oklahoma since December 10th. He is doing the required training for his job with the FAA. He is currantly 96% in his class. Yippee.He will be home in 6 weeks. I can't wait cause I miss him so much.  This picture of him is in the Dallas Stadium two weeks ago. He and some fellow classmates drove to Dallas for the weekend and had fun seeing the sites.
Christina is busy with school. Here she is with my brother Joe on the whale watching boat out of Santa Cruz. We had so much fun. The whole family went on this trip to celebrate my sister Linda's 50th birthday. It is something that she had wanted to do and everyone surprised her. The whales were really neat and they put on a great show.
So this is my update and plan to keep posting my successes in my quilting room!
