A girl CAN dream........

We were going up some stairs and then we had to cross a narrow bridge of some sort, he moved to the side so I could get by first, and slowly, oh so slowly he moved closer to my face, so close I could smell his breath and then his lips touched mine ever so gently. He looked at me and then kissed me again. Then the next thing I knew I felt my husband grab my toes and say ''time to get up"......until we meet again tonight George........

Values and Goals for the Holiday season

So, I'm taking this little online class called "Holidays in Hand" and my first assignment is to write or blog my values and goals for this season. Hmmmm.....this may take a few minutes. I know that one of my goals is to be more organized. I am trying because I have started a shopping list for the family and extended members of the family so that is a start. But I have also been fighting with Christopher because he says it is to early but I want to start shopping, he won't write a list out so a fight ensues.....So I guess that comes to Values. What is more important, trying to have an 11 yr old make a list for Santa (who I think doesn't believe anymore,) or spend time with him talking about the books he loves to read or the games he loves to play. So o.k., I get it. Another is that I am going to try and be more forgiving with family and try to reach out to more family members that we really don't connect with.....I am going to try and remember that the holiday season is for love and peace, not fighting or gossiping about others......

Daycation

Chris and I had a chance to sneak away for an overnight to Mohegan Sun Casino Monday. What a fun 48 hours! We went to Mystic and had a great lunch at the cutest restaurant. I wish I would remember to take pictures...you think I would being obsessed with my camera. I do have a couple but they are crappy. Probably cause I was either drunk or hungover.....But what is a "night of drunken debauchery" if it weren't for those pictures....oh, and to the people in the pool area. I'm sorry I acted like a sex crazed teenager....but boy did I have fun!!!!


Mystic


After the Pool....


Hungover...let's go home.....


oh and no bells and whistles went off for us at the slot machines.....just to let you know in case some of the relatives got wind of us going down to gamble....wink*

I need to embrace change.......

“Change is as inevitable as rain in the spring. Some of us just put on our raincoats and splash forward.”
— Amy Bloom



I am always the one who cannot stand to change anything. I like the way things are and my motto has always been, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". But I see now that I do need to change. I need to change my eating habits, I need to change my cleaning habits, I need to change some of my "friends" and I need to change my underwear!!
