what I have learned!!!

10 things I have learned about myself in the past 4 weeks....

1) I am superstitious...never thought I was, like seriously I have let black cats go out in front of me my whole life...haha I am so scared of cats... whatever the colour I let them do whatever they want because, I hightail it out of there like nobodies business....mirrors....are you kidding me I am so clumsy I have broken tons of mirrors and never thought about the 7 year crisis....
I would love to tell everyone our "news" like every stinking detail...but something holds me back...I don't want to jinx anything~~

2) I am a total control freak....and this I can not control....hence another list...my last 2 post have contained "lists" :)

3) a bag of chips really does make me feel better!

4) with a big glass of red wine.....even better!

5) even though I am 35 years of age....I am still a zitty mess when I am stressed out!!

6) when I am super stressed I just add more jobs to my "list"....like building a house....offering more and more services at my salon....you know, just little stuff.....hehe

7) shopping makes me feel good too....window shopping, internet shopping, really any kind of shopping

8) I have the BEST family..... moms, dads, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins in the whole wide world!(oh grandparents too)...:)

9) I have the BEST friends....ones I have known my whole life, ones I have known for a short time, ones I have met through work, through the adoption networks, bloggy friends wherever....you keep me laughing, you keep me positive.....awesome!

10) and most importantly.....my husband.....I've said it before and I will say it again......you ROCK!!

okay sorry but that is it.....everything is going well.....keep all fingers and toes crossed....

Mother's Day 2010...

Mother's Day 2010...I have to say the past few Mother's Day's have been hard to swallow....of course my "Mother's" are wonderful and I love to celebrate this day with them....but you can never avoid that nagging feeling all day.....the feeling that you still are not celebrating this day...and it is all around you....people wishing you a happy mother's day everytime you turn around...going to a 90th birthday celebration and all the "mothers" get a rose... and of course they should, just another situation where you feel left out........so today I decided I needed to write a post to all the "non-mothers" out there...all the women in my life that want to be mothers more than anything...not so we can celebrate the day and get the recognition...no, we just want to be a "Mom"...to have that joy......maybe we will, maybe we won't.....this post is for all of you!!

"To all the mom’s out there, you deserve love and respect today but respectfully, this is my blog and I want to use today’s entry to acknowledge my fellow fertility-challenged friends. So to them, I want to directly say the following:

1-You are brave and for that, you have my utmost respect.
2-Eat chocolate, ice cream, or have a margarita whenever you need one.
3-Don’t ever, not for one second, lose your sense of humor.
4-Don’t ever, not for one second, lose hope.
5-Don’t ever, not for one second, watch the show “19 and Counting” on TLC. It’ll just piss you off.
6-Never apologize or feel bad for day dreaming about punching someone in their face.
7-You’re not alone. There are countless out there like us.
8-If you want to be a mother, it may not happen in the way you imagined, but you will find a way to make it happen somehow.
9-I urge you to tell any of your friends or family who just gave birth all about the nap you took for no reason.
10-Don’t let this define who you are as a person or a woman.
11-Ignore the annoying people… even though there is JUST SO MANY OF THEM.
And lastly,
12- Never forget, we are not failures. We’ve done nothing wrong and we’ve done nothing to deserve this.

To all my non-mothers out there, from the bottom of my heart, I’m wishing you a happy May 9th. You are my people and I salute you.

Now let’s all go out, eat some sushi, drink some wine and a big cup of coffee, and then put on a bikini, get in a hot tub and enjoy the quiet and freedom! Happy Non-Mother’s Day!"

One day late.......but honestly yesterday this post would not have been this entertaining!

M.I.A.

Sorry I have been MIA lately......life is busy, crazy, overwhelming, exciting, scary......lots to tell, but not just yet....


"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day."
