2 days..

i have some early resolutions. i want my whole apartment cleaned by tomorrow evening. i want to get rid of a lot of stuff. i want to find love in 2007...i'm hell bent on that...and not just anyone will do, and it's my turn! i want to be a better friend to myself, to learn that no matter what kind of flaws i have, they are easily fixed and that i'm worth more than i let myself believe. i'm going to go to the dentist and not be afraid. i'm going to try to quit smoking. that won't be easy and it might be last on my list.

that's a lot of stuff..think i can do it? not sure...we'll see. it was an interesting year 2006...i hope 2007 is better.

1 day until 32

so every time this year i always get a little sad about my birthday. i keep getting older and further away from what i had imagined my life to be like. so...pardon me for a while until the birthday passes and then i'll be on the track to christmas.

Happy 2nd Birthday Kyla Baby!!

you are my sunshine.....

this is the cutest thing i've seen in a while. this little girl learned this song in english, a language she doesn't speak.

Let's go swimming, let's go swimming.....

i have to report that Herman the fly is no longer with us. *L*

so, i have to say that on occasion you find a couple of really good friends online and then some of them go off and have babies and they sort of adopt you as their kid's aunt. Well, i have one of the best little internet nieces!! She's turning 2 on Thursday. i think I've mentioned her before. When i was a nanny, i watched a little girl named kylin. Well this little girl was born the day before kylin and her mom named her kyla. We use to compare babies lol. Anyway, kyla's mom (Amanda) made a movie of her singing a Laurie berkner song (i LOVE Laurie... (or and i think she is so freakin cute singing it (kyla, not Laurie haha) so go to and check out kyla singing :)

that's all for now :)

Shake it like a Polaroid picture

So on top of my real job, i got a part time job working at sears portrait studio.
it's something I've wanted to learn how to do. And man am i learning. I'm learning that it's hard to remember crap! My training consists of 30 hours of watching a computer screen to learn about my job, on the job training (way to push me into showing pictures on my first day *L* smart) and then learning the camera. It's so much to learn but I'll learn it. it may take me 9 years to learn, but I'm not giving up. i think people are annoyed with my question asking but i need to learn.
i like it so far, i hope that continues.

Nothing in my life is really new. I like that the weather is cooler but I'm not looking forward to winter. Figure that one out. I have a new pet fly that I've named Herman. The cats love Herman. I, however, do not.

That's about all for now. Hope everyone is good!

fall over! i'm so exhausted from this week that i can hardly stand it. i'm literally worn out. those kids are challenging. i was SO happy when one set of twins went home today at 1130. then i remembered that the next set is going to be there at 2.

i have about 6 minutes left on my break...i'm finishing up laundry and then i have to go back. too bad i didn't nap on my break.

happy friday!

Happy Mother's Day, Mom!


There are times when only a Mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappointments
And calm all of our fears.

There are times when only a Mother's love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we've dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.

There are times when only a Mother's faith
Can help us on life's way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.

For a Mother's heart and a Mother's faith
And a Mother's steadfast love
Were fashioned by the Angels
And sent from God above.

My life, summarized

So, I have to tell you all about my new job. I had taken a job at a private day care right after my nanny position was done. Well, I worked there for 2 days. Each day I came home and cried. Each day I went to work and cried. It was not a good place for me to be. So I quit. Which was dumb on my part. REALLY dumb, but I couldn't take it. So I went to a place where my friend Michele is the assistant director. They had an opening in the pre-k room. After an interview and 4 days of waiting, they offered me the job. I started this past Wednesday. I'll be the lead teacher in the pre-k room. in my new class, I have 3 (THREE!!!) sets of IDENTICAL twins, 2 autistic children and a handful of "problem" children (a.d.d., home issues, etc). I've come home totally drained each day so far. But I LOVE it!! I'm looking forward to learning all about the kids, learning their names (haha) and being their teacher. Next week is my official start. The girl who was in there before, is moving to MN. Her last day was today. So Monday I start officially being the lead teacher in the class!! Next week is "at the theater" and we're going to go see red grammar on Tuesday. I have no clue who red grammar is. lol. I'll have to do some research. Anyway, I'm very tired and need to go to bed. So that's what's new with me....Hope all is well!

some pictures

i took these pictures a couple of days ago. and as soon as i get more unpacked and a nap in (hahah) i'll take more. so far i have my computer room and my "cat room" set up. i need to leave soon to go clean my old place and get rid of the keys (and check the mail) the flowers below were sent to me by my friend shelli. it's a garden? i think she called it...has 5 mini plants in dirt and then 5 water tubes with daisies in them (my fave!!!)
anyway, off to get more coffee!

P.S. in case you couldn't tell, the pictures are my new place. i know the old and the new look the same lol. same owner. this one is a 2 bedroom upper on the corner of the building. love it. very quiet!
