Smiling, Beguiling

about me
My heart is far too big for my brain. I'm a little bit neurotic and occasionally a control freak. I'm totally in love with my daughter; when she smiles all is right in this world. Playing with my dogs always makes me laugh. Getting lost in a good book or film is a swell way to spend the day. Thunderstorms are splendid. Eclectic music rules my world (e.g. KCRW, KXCI, XPN). Sassy shoes make me feel pretty. Feeling the warm sun on my skin a cold windy day is sublime. I believe that one can NEVER travel enough. Politics are important - so pay attention b/c your government may be trying to screw you! Funky architecture is fun to look at. Tide pools are fun to play in. Snuggling up against the velvety soft spot on a horse's nose is pure heaven. Snuggling up against someone you love is even better. Baseball is simply the best sport EVER created - and you will never convince me otherwise. Consuming monster-sized mugs of java does not make me a junkie; it makes me a connoisseur.

Alzheimer's Bracelet - Anonymous

On my wrist I wear a bracelet
To help me think, pray and cope
Of the day I lost my mother
With Alzheimer's there's no hope
She was stripped of all her memory
Of a family she loved so
All her friends and loved ones
Didn't want to see her go
God had a special reason
To end her suffering and her pain
Heaven's gates flew wide open
Such an angel did He gain
Some of her many loved ones
Waited there with opened arms
She now has back her memory
And a... read more

I start my new job tomorrow morning ... I'm going to be a Public Relations Coordinator. I'm scared to death, excited, nervous, etc. Hope I'll do okay. Hope they'll like me. Hope I'll like them!

The End.

Looks like I'm gonna be a working girl again as early as next week. Pending their background check, I have accepted an offer for a Temp-to-Hire position at a large corporation here in Long Beach. I'll give you more details when I'm absolutely certain it's a done deal.

Thanks everyone for sending me your prayers, good wishes, high level positive energy waves, etc. B/c it worked! I'm employed, and now I'll be able to take care of my daughter and my bills. What a wonderful gift that is!

When You Dream - The Barenaked Ladies

With life just begun, my sleeping new son
has eyes that roll back in his head
They flutter and dart, he slows down his heart
and pictures a world past his bed
It's hard to believe
As I watch you breathe
Your mind drifts and weaves

When you dream,
what do you dream about?
When you dream,
what do you dream about?

Do you dream about
music or mathematics
or planets too far for the eye?
Do you dream about
Jesus or Quantum Mechanics
or an... read more
