This photo was taken the day before we got our first snow here in Seattle.  It has been freezing ever sense..Brrrrrrrrrr

Do you remember that first love?  Sadly many of us have been burnt in our first ever love experiences.  There is no way to define in human standards how love looks from one individual to another.

Normalcy

The state of being normal as defined by cuddling with my furry friend and breathing a bit slower this week. May we look at our animal friends today and thank them for their unconditional love. I don’t know about you, but when I spend time with my Linus- I laugh more!

Bathroom Humor

Yesterday was my biggest day with your LIKES on WordPress. I could only think it had to be because of my bathroom humor from yesterday’s blog that made you guys laugh ( https://alesiablogs.wordpress.com/2013/02/07/blogging/ ). I know at times this life can be full of stress we have to face so if at times you break out in a smile and have a big laugh on account of something I wrote—I am happy. Today I am still not feeling well so I will share some of my photos that cheer me up from a trip we took to Disneyland on a road trip a couple of years back right before my diagnosis with the brain tumor. I remember feeling bad physically on this trip, but going to disneyland was worth every moment of not feeling good. You will see by the photos of my son Luke who has autism. He was in his glory!

Blogging

You bloggers make me feel like Minnie Mouse as she is very special to me! Thank you for the awards!

You bloggers make me feel like Minnie Mouse as she is very special to me! Thank you for the awards!

I am somewhat under the weather today, but I wanted to send thanks to several of you that gave me nominations for awards in the last couple of weeks. Thank you again for the Inspiring, Versatile, Beautiful, and of course the most recent was the Sunshine award. I loved that because I felt as if my light is making a difference. I so appreciate the affirmations from you all. I do not think I can get to all the questions that are asked from these awards, but I thought I would share a few things I have not told you about myself or at least I don’t think I have:
1. I became a nurse after my dad thought it would be a good career choice. It was not my first choice. I thought I wanted to teach school.
2. I was robbed while in high school on campus. I still miss my suede coat, cap, and gloves that were taken from me. I guess the robber was cold.
3. I once heard angels sing in my car. I am not kidding!
4. I was given a police ticket for just parking in front of my apartment when I lived in Germany in 1990. I do not think my neighbors liked American GI’s
and that was what I was! When they met my family (who happened to be German), I never got another ticket..Thank God. I think the first ticket was illegal,but
I just paid it.
5. Both of my children were born by C-section. (that was too much information wasn’t it?). haha.
6. I had kidney cancer in 1997. The surgeons took that bad puppy out and now I pee with only one kidney!
7. I had a very large brain tumor discovered in 2010. The surgeons took that bad puppy out and now I still pee with only one kidney!
8. I shit like the rest of you.
9. I had fibroids. The surgeons took those bad puppies out and now I still pee with only one kidney!
10.God–that is way too much information….
Hope all is well in your worlds out there….IF you feel so inclined to share what kind of surgery you have had in your past leave a comment. I am sure I will still be peeing with only one kidney with your surgical story too….THANKS AGAIN TO ALL OF YOU FOR THE AWARDS! I will post some winners soon. Photo of Minnie taken by yours truly.

MEN!

A photo I took a few years back of my husband and son number 2 which proves my unspoken theory MEN never grow up.

After a serious blog post yesterday, it is back to my usual rantings and this one is about MEN:
I live with my husband, two sons, and a boy dog. My sons and dog are teenagers. Seriously they are 19, 15, and 13 years old. I have not lived with a woman in almost 30 years. Therefore, my childhood did not prepare me for the onslaught of manliness. I grew up with only a sister. Now she was a force to be reckoned with, but she pales in consideration of the enormous amount of testosterone that has invaded every room in my home. For example, there seems to be an aversion to bathroom and kitchen etiquette. So simple a task is all I ask of them. My female mind can not wrap itself around the fact that anyone would not think about the other person coming after them:
Should I go on? The other amazing thing about my husband and sons are that they are all 5 foot 7 inches! However, their asses are of all variety of sizes. Hence , my dilemma in sorting out their underwear. Putting the appropriate ones with the assigned dresser drawer can be daunting! How dare they even bug me when they do not have the right ones and have to look in another’s drawers? Well I guess you can call that the punishment I have rendered upon them for the naked toilet and paper towel holders!
The latest craze that I am getting miffed about is that no male species in our home wants to flush the toilet. I just have one question for you guys out there? Is there some kind of water shortage that I am not privy too? In all honesty, I love them all with every ounce of energy I have left in me that is after cleaning up after them!

KIDS!

Growing up in Hawaii offered kids interesting opportunities like BIRDS on your head!

Blogging is still a very new way of expressing myself. Sharing and reaching out to others for affirmation or showing my unique way of looking at life seemed to bring an audience into my world. I am grateful for each of you. A couple of weeks ago I was nominated for The Beautiful Blogger Award ( http://scvincent.com/awards/ ) and asked to share seven things about myself. I thought I would confess some of my childhood mishaps. Now remember these were the early 70’s!!!! I hope it brings a smile to your face and you see a little of yourself in my answers. After all you were a kid once:
1. I thought I was a great singer at the age of eight in 1971. I sang to the same Donny Osmond album night after night. Mom told me I may have actually sang Puppy Love more than Donny Osmond and Paul Anka combined. It seemed Mom was not too impressed with my singing. It was soon after that I had to give up my musical career. I actually auditioned for the neighborhood band and was “promoted” to manager as the band said I hit a few too many sour notes.
2. I loved playing softball. One year while on the ALL STAR team, I hurt my knee and it was swelling pretty bad. There was some guy at the game who said he could “take the pain away” by hypnotizing me. I let him do that right there with the players around me watching. Before I knew it all the pain was gone. I pitched the game and never felt pain. Later I got home and my knee hurt like hell. My mother was not too impressed.
3. I have gone number one in the pool while I was growing up. I could not help it because I just wanted to keep swimming. Now that Michael Phelps confessed that he has done this, I felt it was OK to share. Mother would not have been too impressed so I did not tell her.
4. I studied best with my dog Rascal growing up. I still love being around animals. I played with him more than studying. Mom was not impressed.
5. I was baptised at the YMCA. It was not a real spiritual experience as I froze my butt off when I got out of that water and my tittys could be seen frozen to death! I wonder if I gave anyone a cheap thrill that day? My mother would not have been impressed.
6. I once spit out food right in front of my grandma while eating breakfast she made me. I was eating eggs with something in them when I said, “Gramma this is good, but what’s in these eggs?” She said in her Kentucky accent, “Child that is pig’s brains. They are good for you.” I proceeded to barf. Mom was not impressed.
7. I was once in a tornado. My daddy and I were going down a road when the weather proceeded to change rapidly. Our car was actually lifted off the road. It was clearly an outer body experience. I remember not even being scared. I was like cool looking at dad thinking come on car do that again! OMG was I nuts or what? I never told my mom this story until a couple of weeks ago. She finally seemed impressed. LOVE YOU MOM! I know you are reading this….
