The most important things in life aren't things... want to hug the world. Just give it a big old squeeze....hug the stuffing right out of it, and everyone. Hugs make you feel safe, secure, and loved. And it's so simple to do. But I can't hug everyone's problems away, or make the ouchies of the world stop. But if you're reading this, then i urge you to put your right hand on your left shoulder, your left hand on your right shoulder. Good. Now squeeze!
And now, as an exercise in taking the focus off all the devastation and destruction take a look on the little things in your life that make you happy right now.

Here's what i came up with:

Music. All kinds of it. And the dancing to it. The close your eyes and just move dancing to it. And singing really loud in your car so the people at the red light look at you funny.
Dogs. always so happy to see me. They just live such a good life. Sleep, play, walk, eat, and start all over again!
Towels fresh from the warm. Just like a hug if no one else is around to give you one.
Character band aids. Cuz nothing says boo boo be gone as well as a big bright pink Hello Kitty band-aid.
Slippers. Warm, fuzzy, stinky, comfy, cozy. Home.
Cheezies or Hickory Sticks. It'll take you right back to being a kid.
Any candy from your childhood for that matter. I prefer jawbreakers, lick a stick and Nerds.
Touch Lamps. Retro and so much fun to sit there and mess with.
11:11. There's something infinetly cool about it. And it's a chance to make a wish. But make it a good one.
Jumping on the bed. Childlike fun. and Free!!!
Soup. Any kind of soup you like. It's warm, tasty and just plain wonderful
Hitting every green light on the way home from work
Your favorite song on the radio on the way too!
Dip. Dipping things is fun. It's also a strange, tiny, fun lil word.
Hottubs and fireplaces,lipgloss, babies hands and feet, freshly cut grass, gingerbread houses, chocolate chip cookies, bounce dryer sheets, laughing kids, an old friend, movie theatre popcorn, sex, Tele-Toon Retro,garden gnomes, playing footsies, q-tips, nicknames, cloud watching, twirling until you get dizzy, swing sets, your kids when they are sleeping, garden gnomes, Shiraz, TV infomercials, Youtube in all it's glory, foot rubs, polar fleece, mini mitts, vitamin C, ice cream, the color purple, colored pens, tattoos, "that's what she said" moments, reality shows, painted toe nails, vanilla, favorite jeans that make your bum look 'hawt', OJ (the juice not the douche bag) new sheets, Fridays and Sundays, coffee and of course having the freedom to write whatever the hell i want in this blog!!

Now it's your turn.....

Oh ya...and xoxoxooxoxox!

Wait For It.....

I don't believe they didn't shut this down yet. Seriously...i haven't update since MAY and I have a grand slam total of 2 followers. Guess they knew I'd come back...with a pile of insane stories.

I HAVE been rather busy these past few months. Let's see...since May...seems like a long time ago, now that the white stuff is on the ground. And it's a whole friggin new year!! May, may have been green. Who knows....much of the time it feels like the phyncter of the universe...Just kidding...but seriously...the weather here is the SHITS! Regardless one can get into as much trouble here, as anywhere.
Trouble finds me consistently here anyway. The only majors that really stand out for me this summer are the 2 weddings I happened to partake in, and various events leading up to the wedding. Here....because it's the new decade. Pics

To explain, we am of course covering Corey Hart's legendary "Sunglasses at Night' with crutches as geee-tars. And the lovely ladies of the day, as well as showing off my Retro Princess dress. So fun to dress up. And of course share in the joy of 2 great friends and the lucky men who had the wise sense to marry them.

Moving on from fun. Then like Limmeny Snicketts Series of Misfortunate all hell breaking loose, shit began to hit the fan. They say it goes in 3's. Not so much here. Starting with my Grandfather's passing. A sad time for all, but also a real celebration of a great character of life, and wonderful man. Also a blessing to not see someone you care for in anymore pain.

Speaking of pain...Handy Smurf also took this time to put on his running shoes and ran right the hell outta our marriage. I saw the bottoms of a few wine bottles. There was a text message letting me know we could split up things, as I was on the way to another major family event requiring professional portraits to be taken. I hope my nose wasn't too red. Maybe that's why i haven't seen those?

Followed promptly. by.. every mother's dreadful years descending in full. Like an alien spaceship hovered down one day opened the door and spat out what looks like my daughter but must be one of theirs. Yup..Lil Miss Not So Lil Anymore became a full blown teenage over the summer. Complete with attitude let me tell you. Truck loads of the stuff.

Speaking of trucks...or vehiculars in general....mine blew up at this time. Or I procastinated and THEN it blew up. I knew the shaking and 'klunk ker plunk a plunka' noise it made was a bad, bad thing. But I was a bit focused on other things.

Oh, and I came down with "what the doctors don't know what it is yet, but it's really made me sick and skinny diesease. " Otherwise probably called "STRESS". Leaving me discussing intestinal noises and pooping alot more than I am comfortable explaining to my massive amounts of followers. :P And giving the finger to stress in general for all it does to make people ill. Truth be told I am giving the finger to many things lately. I NEED an agressive hobby. In the meantime 'Supreme Deer Hunter" on ye ol' Facebook has been getting alot of love from me!! Yes...i make gun noises and mimic Dirty Hairy alot. what!? It's good therapy. Try it!!

I have developed, "Spends alot of time alone hobbies" that I've always wanted to do. I paint (and I might add I'm a regular Picasso masterpiece wielding artist if I might say so myself) and I also have been studying up on natural medicine, yoga and all things New Agey and calm. After shooting fake deers, one needs to find peace and forgiveness after all.

I've learned alot, about friendship, love, life and death, commitment, parenting, family. That these are the things that make up who I am. Alot has been revealed to me and continues to be...and I'm so into this new year thing. I have major plans of course for this one! Blog more was actually one i wrote down!! No kidding. Just wait for it......I hope to have much more cheerful episodes for you coming up right after this next commercial break....

Vamp snowman which aptly melted when the sun came up, and my e-christmas card...i was saving the environment by not sending cards. And being cheap.
