  1. Missing my mom so badly tonight...its been four weeks

    I'm having a time right now of missing my mom so much. Today marks four weeks since she died (the first time), since I walked in expecting a visit with her and dad, and found her literally taking her final breaths. I still can't believe that my afternoon went the way it did that day. NOTHING I had planned that afternoon happened the way it should have, but instead, I KNOW that God rearranged my day so that I could be there right at that moment. There is no other explanation.

  2. Oh gosh, I just booked my oldest DD her first flight alone!

    What on earth am I going to do without her for two whole weeks? She has decided that she's brave enough to take a short flight alone from Vegas to Sacramento this summer to go stay with her best friend, who moved away from here last December. Luckily, its non-stop. I get to walk her right to the gate, and hopefully they'll let my friend pick her up fairly close to the gate on that end so she won't get lost.

    I imagine they are going to have the BEST time ever, as this ...

  3. A bird attacking a cat!

    I don't think I would have believed it if I hadn't seen it myself yesterday. Wednesday morning I happened to be on my usual neighborhood walk in the morning. Not too far into it, I came upon a black cat crossing the road (is that bad luck? ), followed closely by a small bird. That bird kept pecking at the back of the cat!! Surprisingly, the cat seemed completely unbothered by it. Didn't even flinch. Then, the little birdie flew up onto the stop of a street sign, where it appeared ...

  4. One more week til Emily and I board the jet plane....

    We leave for Sacramento one week from today!! Emily and I are SO excited to go see our best friends. Its been five months since they moved away from this area. Since then, I've had quite a few life stresses and would have loved to have my friend here to support me through it all. But, I've survived and now get to look forward to spending a week doing girlfriend stuff!! I'm especially excited to see Snatam Kaur in concert, again, (this is my THIRD time since last June!!!), and to share ...

  5. Dang!

    Ugh! The spa just called again and said that the colon hydrotherapy machine isn't quite fixed, yet. They thought it was working, which is why I made the appt for today, but I guess its still having problems and I'll have to re-schedule it again. Who knew that I'd really want to do this? The things I do!! Oh well, I'm getting my hair done (at a different place), so that's one thing in my favor today!

  6. Hooray for me! I finished a 7 day Master Cleanse!

    Whew! It's over! Last night (Monday night) was the first solid food I've had in a week. I technically should have waited another day. But, being that lunchtime yesterday I starting drinking fresh squeezed orange juice (a normal transition after the spicy lemonade), it was so good to eat a light homemade vegetable soup for dinner. YUM!!! It tasted SO good! In total, I lost 8 pounds. I hope to be able to keep that weight off, especially if I keep up my exercise and eating right.

  7. Three days down, four to go! (at least!)

    I'm doing another cleanse, the Master Cleanser, for detoxification purposes and overall health. But, one benefit has been some weight loss. So far I'm down 5 lbs, which I'm sure is mostly water weight. It was started on Tuesday morning, and its now Thursday night, so I've been 3 full days without any solid food, but only taking in the spicy lemonade concoction. So far, so good. I'm hoping to make it at least through next Monday, and then gradually go back onto solids again. (I have to go ...

  8. Now I know "what's going to happen next?"!!!

    I really shouldn't have asked.

    My grandma had another stroke, that's what happened next. I seriously can't believe everything that's gone on in our family and extended family the past few months.

    I think I need to start talking in positive affirmations, and hopefully the universe will start sending some GOOD things our way for a change! Sheesh!!

    (and btw, for anyone wanting to know more about my grandma's condition, I've posted an update ...

  9. What's going to happen next?

    I can't believe the run of bad luck that seems to be happening these past few months.

    First, my mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer just before Christmas. And, our best friends moved away that same day.

    A couple weeks after that, I found out I was PG (which was a GOOD thing), but then it ended a few weeks later in a blighted ovum/miscarriage, for which I had to have a D&C.

    My mom got very ill a few weeks ago (due to vomiting and dehydration ...

  10. A month ago today (pg & m/c ment)

    A month ago today---January 8---I had a positive home pregnancy test. It seems like such a long time ago, and yet its only been a month. Only two weeks into my time after getting that positive test, I started spotting. About a week after that, I had my bloodwork done and found out my numbers aren't climbing the way they should. That same week, I had an u/s where they couldn't detect any sign of a baby, anywhere! But then, I had one more blooddraw and that showed my numbers going up ...
