Lord help me!

My earlier blog today was how Krystal is getting so big. She will be graduating in June. NOW, Siobhan has a loose tooth. Oh my why do they have to grow so gosh darn fast. I am not ready for all this change. Diego will be 3 next week too. I must be strong!

Yep, it is finally here

My daughter will be graduating high school in a few weeks. Where did the years go? Seriously the years have flown by. I remember the night before she started Kindergarten. I cried all night in Eric's arms. My little girl growing up. Starting school. Big girl. Now this. It almost seems as though there has been no time in-between.

My beautiful girl. She really is beautiful, both inside and out. She is a sweet, thoughtful and very loving girl. She is always ready for a hug or just to hang out with her parents. Which from what I hear, we are pretty lucky!

There are a lot of graduation activities coming up. She will be so busy. I am fighting the tears even now. All I know, whoever sits by me at her graduation better NOT say anything about my crying. I cry at most anything anyway, but this! My little girl is all grown up. Not grown up enough to date, or drive, or.. well she IS graduating though!

My latest read

I am still reading this book and I am really enjoying it. All the struggles that women went through when they started to work and had the roles they played in society completely change. I think it is very empowering. Pick it up!

Please say it IS so!


Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true?

A : Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... Don't
waste them on exercise . Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up
your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can
extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer?
Take a nap.
____________ _________ _________ __
Q: Should I cut down on meat and eat more fruits and vegetables?

A : You must grasp logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay
and corn. A nd what are these? Vegetables . So a steak is nothing more
than an efficient mechanism of delivering vegetables to your system.
Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a good source of field grass
(green leafy vegetable). A nd a pork chop can give you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable products
____________ _________ _________ __
Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?

A : No, not at all. Wine is made from fruit. Brandy is distilled
wine, that means they take the water out of the fruity bit so you get
even more of the goodness that way. Beer is also made out of grain.
Bottoms up!
____________ _________ _________ __
Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?

A : Well, if you have a body and you have fat, your ratio is one to
one. If you have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.
____________ _________ _________ __
Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular
exercise program?

A : Can't think of a single one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain...Good!
____________ _________ _________ __
Q: A ren't fried foods bad for you?

A : You're not listening... . Foods are fried these days in vegetable
oil. In fact, they're permeated ! in it. How could getting more
vegetables be bad for you?
____________ _________ _________ __
Q: Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?

A : Definitely not! When you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You
should only be doing sit-ups if you want a bigger stomach.
____________ _________ _________ __
Q: Is chocolate bad for me?

A : Are you crazy? HELLO Cocoa beans! Another vegetable. It's the
best feel-good food around!!
____________ _________ _________ __
Q: Is swimming good for your figure?

A : If swimming is good for your figure, explain whales to me.
____________ _________ _________ __
Q: Is getting in-shape important for my lifestyle?

A : Hey! 'Round' is a shape! !
____________ _________ _________ __
Well, I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had
about food and diets.

And remember: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the!
intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in
the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, What a Ride!"

Happy Mother's Day!

I was reading this book last night. I had just started it. I got to page 36 where she is discribing what happened when her mom died. I lost it! I started crying and I just couldn't stop. It went on and on for what seemed like forever but was probably 30 minutes or so. I wanted to scream. I really wanted to scream. But I can't. I didn't want to freak Eric out, he had no idea what was going on anyway. Can you imagine? I am NOT the type of person to just scream. Well, maybe if there were a spider, but I am sure this would be more of an animal sound then anything else. I am seriously wondering when this is going to get better. Time heals all wounds don't they say? I think they lie! I actually cried myself to sleep. I am paying for it today. My head is killing me. Tears do not always heal.

Happy Birthday Stephanie!

I know it is a dark photo. This is Jose, Stephanie and ME! This was taken at Original Mike's in Santa Ana for Stephanie's 24th birthday. That girl would not get a drink unless someone else was drinking too. I NEVER have that problem!

Having fun?

Diego having fun (?) at the Bowers Kidseum today with Krystal. Of course she didn't stay long because he was being a brat! In his defense, it was naptime, but still. Eric and I were going to enjoy a lunch all by ourselves, just when we sat down at the table, she called to be picked up. Oh well, maybe next time.

Galaxy rocks!

Perfect picture of Donovan jumping over a Chivas USA player to go on to pass to Cobi who scored a goal! SWEET!

My husband is obsessed with these pictures. I don't get it. He will laugh and laugh!
