I was going to write about how you think you can joke with people but not always. Sometimes they hear seriousness where you are kidding. But I decided not to waste any time on it.

I would rather ask for a few prayers for some friends of mine who have loved one's who have some health issues going on. Please say a few prayers for those who are doing all they can to stay healthy.

Hey there, Hi there, Ho there

I thought I would take a few minutes and talk about how I miss my friend Vangie. I met Vangie about 9 years ago. it took me a little while to get to really know her, but once I did, true friendship. She stayed at our house and watched our dogs while Eric and I took the kids to Europe for three and a half weeks.

She dated a friend of mine and I thought, how perfect is this?! It didn't work out but I am still friends with both of them.

She moved away to be near her son (who couldn't admire that!). She is one of those people that if you went a year without talking, the minute you do, it is like you talked last week.

She is someone you can truly be yourself with. No judgement whatsoever. Really!

Here are a few things about my friend Vangie.
She ALWAYS looks great in photos!
She went to culinary school (but that isn't what she does now) and I am STILL waiting for my 8 course meal!
She has a Podcast! I mean, I am the computer person with everyone I know and she has a podcast. The first time I heard her say "Are you calling me fat" on it, I cried I missed her so much!
Vangie will give you everything she owns and help you get more.
She is a great mom.
She ALWAYS makes me laugh!

She will be welcome in our home, anyday, anytime, for whatever reason!

I miss you Vangie! Mean it!

where have you been?

I think I have been twittering so much I forgot about my blog. I can only do so much people!

We decided to take Siobhan out of dance. She doesn't feel comfortable where she is at and there is a performance coming up. She is going to start soccer in a couple weeks AND she is in gymnastics. I think it will be okay.

Today Krystal is going with her friend to LA. They are going to take the train, spend the day, eat and shop and come home tonight. We have a galaxy game. They better win!

I feel a little sickness coming on. Everyone at work is sick. My mind shall keep the body healthy!

Now I have SEEN it all

As you may know, I feel that people are on their mobile phones WAY too much. Today, I saw something I never thought I would see.

A blind lady walking down the street on the cell phone. WHAT? I would THINK she would need her additional senses when walking down the street instead of chit chatting on the phone.

Okay, maybe I am overreacting, but still...I don't know. What do you think?

My trip to Vegas with friends

Last weekend, we met at my house and left about 9:45am. Out on the road. The road that seemingly never ends. We stopped at Del Taco for breakfast when we all started feeling the hunger. I was amazing Julie could drive and eat a big ass breakfast burrito. (I am in awe still). Natalie was chatting in the back about how she needed to call her friend who lives in Vegas when we reach state line. "You better call him now", I told her.

We found the hotel quickly. It was nice. There was bit of a line to check in. The second we walked in I realized I had TOTALLY forgotten what it was like to be where people are allowed to smoke inside. It has been ten years since people where allowed to smoke inside here. Ick!

We upgraded our room for a mere $10 more. It was nice! Big! We relaxed, unpacked and watched as Julie pulled out her home bar. This girl knows how to travel!

We went out and enjoyed the day. We got some drinks, spent a few dollars and got something to eat. In the Paris Hotel I was amazed at how they made the ceiling look like sky. Not cheesy but really look like sky. Then we headed back to our hotel to relax and prepare for the night!

Beth (the birthday girl) and her friend Annie met us at the room about 7. We enjoyed some good drinks (via Julie!). We walked over to the restaurant, Diablo’s Cantina. Perfect choice! The music was loud and great. Our booth was in the perfect location and the drinks and food were great. We stayed there a couple of hours and then headed out to the strip. We walked around, went here and there. We ended up at this place that had Mini Britney . I won't comment on that, I have included the link for you to judge for yourself.

Tired and with hurting feet we headed back to the room. Beth and Annie said goodbye and I was in my pj's when Julie said "I am heading downstairs for something to eat, what do you want?". It was 1:30 AM. I don't know why I was so surprised. Eric and I lose all track of time when we are on vacation too.

The next morning we woke and headed over to Beth's house. She lives here in OC but bought a house there. She goes whenever she can. It was really cute. I wished we could have stayed longer. It was nice to just hang out. We went out to eat and headed home.

I got car sick on the way home. It was really windy. I asked Julie if I could drive and you probably couldn't shut me up after I started to feel better. It was great. It was fun to get away with the girls. I said we should do it again sometime just because. I hope we do.

Hey, have you seen Di?

Oh, she is in Vegas with her friends for the weekend. Eric is probably having his own party at home (ha ha with FOUR kids!)
