What I should be doing today is making the Birthday Boy his b-day breakfast, maybe some pancakes with a few candles poking out the top, with some juice and any of his other favorites on the side and either have it waiting for him on the kitchen table or serve it to him in bed.
But I can’t.
I can’t because I don’t know what his favorites are.
This is something I have to live with on a daily basis. All of these unanswered questions that a parent should know about their kids. The simple things I will never, ever know.
I wonder about the small things all the time. What would he look like? How tall would he be? Would he have a girlfriend? What would his voice sound like? Would he be one of those kids who aren’t afraid to tell their Mother’s they love them in front of their friends? I would like to think he would be. How big would his hugs be now?
Oh, his hugs. How I miss them. His hugs always made me feel like it really was going to be ok.
What I wouldn’t do for another one of his wonderful hugs. Only this time, I’d be sure to never let go.
I want to wish Mikey a Happy 15th Birthday today!
I love you more than words can say.
Loving you always,

You know, it is beyond frustrating when no one will listen to you. It’s as if you are some foreign being from another planet trying your very best to communicate with the people around you, but they all look at you as if you are dressed in a huge pink tutu with a clown wig on your head, wearing hightop sneakers and feel like they can’t take you seriously. It doesn’t matter what comes out of your mouth, they laugh at you anyway and shrug off whatever it was you said.
I’m telling you, I need to get me a bunch of those Universal Translators the characters from Star Trek wore so I can pin them on all those who shrug me off so now they have NO excuse.
However, that will never happen.
I suppose my repeating myself over and over again will have to be what happens until I either snap or they actually make those translators.

So, what do you know? It’s the return of the slacker. So sorry for those few of you that actually take the time to read this thing. I have been in a blogging slump. I have lots to say, it’s just that those words don’t leave my brain and make it to my fingertips for me to type them out.
However, while in one slump I came out of another. I am finally being creative again with my card making and crafts, so that’s a bonus. It’s just finding the time to sit down for a bit to get those creative juices flowing. Between the hubby, kids, constant noise and the voices chattering in my head… I’m surprised I still have hair. My sanity on the other hand is still in question. It’s just really hard to think when there is constant noise.
I am also sooooo behind with commenting on other blogs. Just so you know, I do peek at them and I have things to say. I will do my best to get caught up with everyone.
I just thought I’d pop in and say HI! I also want to let you know that there will be a guest blogger playing on here every now and then as well. I will let her introduce herself.
Until then, I hope everyone has a great day!
P.S. I want to wish my Dad (who doesn’t read this) a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! xoxo

My nephew Jacob!
He came into the world a little earlier than expected (he was due on the 25th) but is a happy, healthy little boy! My sister is doing great and my brother-in-law is happier than anything to have a boy.
My niece, Colby will make a great big sister!
Can’t wait to see them again tomorrow!

This goes out to my blogger buddies. I am very sorry I have not been commenting, replying, etc. I am in the middle of working on my Vegas post and struggling to do so. I seem to be having an off time/day/week/month. And for that, I apologize.
I am excited to dig into my bag and binders of notes I recovered from my parents and share some of my silly teenage years of loving and crushing on a multitude of boys. I was a geek in school, so my crushes were just that. Crushes. So you’ll have to bear with me and my life as a dullard.
So once I get my arse in gear and finish my Vegas post, I will get on the note reading and reporting as well as hop on your blogs and comment.

Hello everyone in blogger world!
For those of you who care, I have returned home safe and sound from Sin City.
Results from the tournament… We played, we lost, we had a BLAST!!! We all wanted to make it to the money round, but that never happened. Next time.
Can’t say that I committed any real sins, but I did cave to an old, bad habit. I SMOKED WHILE I GAMBLED! Oh the horror! I quit smoking cold turkey back in 2003 when we decided to start a family. I smoked for 17 years, however was never addicted. To me, it was more of a really bad habit. It partnered well with my coffee, computer time, hanging out with friends, reading, etc… I know, some would argue that I was in fact addicted, blah blah blah… But I disagree. I really had no issue with quitting. I guess I would classify myself as a very casual smoker. I smoked a whole pack while in Vegas for the week and haven’t looked back. I suppose it fits well with the phrase, “Whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” However this time around it went to the border. (I still had some left and didn’t want to bring them home, so I finished my last one at the U.S. border!)
I want to give a special thanks to my PPH Cousin who guest blogged while I was away. THANKS PPH!!! I didn’t have the chance to blog anything before I left and I think what she wrote up was perfect!
I have yet to upload my pictures and go through them, however, that will be my task for tonight. I didn’t go overboard with the camera in Vegas as it was too bloody hot to walk the strip, etc. 108℉/42℃ was the hottest day while there. Other days were around the 102℉/40℃ range. With the blistering wind that felt like an open oven right in your face. EWWWWW! Besides, I took a whack of Vegas shots the last 2 times I was there. There is only so many pictures one can take of the same thing, right? This time, there are a bunch of odds and ends and shots from the drive home. I will also blog about some of the adventures with the drive within the next week or so. Right now, I am trying to get back into the groove of things.
I’m glad I’m home.

I was at my parents house last night and was going through a few boxes that I hadn’t brought with me when I moved out. It was sure something else taking that walk down memory lane. A place I haven’t been to in over 15 years.
During my ‘walk’, I came across a box FILLED with notes and letters my friends had written to me. We used to write back and forth to each other in class and slip them into each other’s lockers, bags, etc. We wrote about many topics, including the boys we liked, the stuff we did when we weren’t together, our broken hearts, our happy moments and the troubles in our day to day lives.
I haven’t had the chance to go through all of them yet, as it will literally take me weeks, if not months to dent the hundreds of pieces of paper, some in a 3″ binder and the others folded into tiny squares (you remember those fun forms of origami we all used to compact the notes?). However, I did skim through a few and let me tell you, it’s going to be interesting! It’s too bad I don’t have the letters I wrote to them. I wonder if they still have those letters?
This trip back to junior high and high school should be something. Hopefully I can find some juicy, 15+ year old gossip to share!
