When I first heard this song, I could'nt stop crying. Driving to work on a Tuesday morning, just reflecting on our world and how lost people seem to be. Listening to people talk about their pains, their worries, and their emptieness. I turned my radio to Air-1 and they were interviewing Jeremy Camp and how he came to wrighting this song- There Will Be a Day.

Got in line early this morning to vote. After, a feeling overwhelmed me. I turned to Kira in the car and said, "Let me tell you Kira, remember to always do this..." She turned to me and listened as I told her, "Remember to always do your homework, your own foot work on issues." Don't act like the kids at school that just echo what their parents say, find out for yourself what potential presidents stand for, research each issue and what they believe, don't take my word for it, or even better yet, when you research and find out the facts, you are able to 'call your mom out' on issues I may view differently then you." "Don't just say what you hear your parents saying, challenge your parents, find out the truth and you'll always be able to speak intelligently on issues, to your classmates, teachers, parents, and to whomever may want to debate with you."
"Kira, it's your right to dig for the truth, to speak the truth, no matter who may agree or disagree with you."
She listened and shared her views about the last few days in school regarding the election. Some kids for Barrack Hussein Obama and some for John McCain. Kira stated clearly who she was for. Her words to me: "I wish I could vote, this is probably the most important election in my life time."
My mom's friend said it best two days ago:
Mom's friend: "I'm scared for the future."
Mom: "But as believers, we know we do not need to be afraid."
Mom's friend: "I guess I'm sad for our world, a world my children never got to know that was once good."
I pray for Hope, Love and His coming

It seems that my emails are lost in portal hell and Janice no longer gets my important emails informing her of the boring details of my life. blah blah. So I can peak in on her life at her blog. THE WOMAN KILLS ME. Her blog about per Project Runway Losers! HA!!!! LOVE THAT!!!
Life seems to still be moving along as I (and my house) recoop from a baaaaaaaaaaad tummy virus. Livie STILL isnt 100%. This last week was a complete MUTHA!
when we were all sick the girls toilet broke, (Thank God Tod is the man he is and was able to fix it) then Friday afternoon starting my first of 80 thousand loads of laundry the washer broke.....ever have weeks like this? Thank God Tod is the kind of guy that doesnt get upset abput things, he just fixes stuff and moves on. I love that..... I on the other hand would still be in the laundry room crying and kicking the washer! Then Sunday we were all too sick still and weak to go to Tod's company picnic at the Boardwalk, so we missed that. that sucked!
Good news is Kira BooBira is back home and we couldnt be happier. We have missed her so so so so so soooooooooooo much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She had a blast at Gold Country with Kendra and her family. She seems to have grown even taller and got even prettier! HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE!? Her flauless skin, her beautiful eyes, and hair!!! Wished I looked like that when I was 14 1/2!!!!
Myoko came by the house yesterday to pack things up for college. Man, I will miss that girl. Seeing her face makes me happy. lol! She kills me! She can fustrate me to the point of breaking, and then when I see her and she talks to me she is so sweet and kind and a gentle, loving, giving soul. I hope her journey is happy as she leaves home. I love her and will miss her dearly. I pray for her daily. She's a beautiful girl inside and out and I have complete confidence in her she will go far! I just want her to be happy!!

Sunday we headed to the beach. It looked foggy and cold but it was pretty darn warm, with a light fog that would surely burn off by noon.
It did end up burning off and Aiko and I GOT BURNED~ Livie had a blast and Tod kicked back!
We are extremly blessed to have the beach so close to us!
My cousin William got Livie this little beach hut, and I told Tod we couldnt take her to the beach until we had one, so that worked out PERFECT! LOL!

Last year little Livie was just about 2 weeks old when 4th of July came.
This year, she's a little over 1 years old and a blast to have as a new member to our family!
Grandma Joyce and Auntie Karen got her the cutest little 4th Of July outfit! We bbq'd and relaxed most of the day. Tod and Aiko are still outside playing Guitar Hero!
Due to the major fires in Ca. and here in Watsonville, they have canceled the sale of fire works. Tod is bumbed beyond words but we all know it's just so not worth it. Two weeks ago it took Tod and I each 3 hours to get home because of the HUGE fire just 3 miles away from our home and a mile from his grandma's home. She was evacuated and came to Tod's moms home, which is around the corner from us/ It was heart breaking to worry about his grandma's home all night. The next day the announced she could go back home, her home was safe! Amen, good is wonderful.
Unfortunately, there were homes lost in the fire as well as live stock.
So this year, we just chilled.
I got Livie in her bath and she had a great time, Aiko and Tod peaking in on her through our bathroom window and making her laugh! Then off to bed! Around 9:00 Aiko came in the house with a bin full of strawberries from our next door neighbors! How yyummy and sweet of them to do that! They look gorgeous and TASTE WONDERFULLLLLLL! Tomorrow Aiko and I are gonna cover some of them in chocolate and white chocolate! (Kay, my mouth is watering now!)
A few pics from today and tonight!

We have had NetFlix for some time now and we all LOVE it. I am the one to normally get on line and pick the movies along with the house requests.
About three weeks ago I was on a documentary roll. I chose three documentaries and the entire family just rolled their eyes.
We watched MurderBall- incredible! I love the players of the game and it was an inspiring story to all who watched.
God grew Tired of Us- I can't stop thinking of these Boys. Their story, their journey, and their ambition is more then anyone could fathom. There story shows how innocent they are and shows how we here in the U.S could stand to embrace their customs and their way of life.
IT IS A MUST SEE. This movie will make you laugh and make you hopeful and really make you think about how we treat each other in our society.
A little change never hurt.

So Friday Wanda and I left work early, it was slow and everyone was gone for the day.
It was extremely hot and my air conditioner no longer works in my car. I pick up Kira and start the long Friday night travel of bringing her back to San Jose where she gets picked up for her dad's weekend and then I head back over the hill. Normally it takes about an hour and a half. I notice on the way to take Kira that on the other side of the freeway its backed up past where it normally would be backed up, about ohh, 10 miles!
The heat is now about 92 and it has to be about 99 in the car! We sit and wait for Kira's pickup and we are sweating in crevasses that we didn't know we had. sigh.
After Kira gets picked up I think about heading back to work, just right down the road to get more work done and hang out in the air conditioned building. I some how pass my exit and sit in traffic.
I finally get home and it's almost three hours later. I was exhausted, irritated and sweaty.
Mom, Livie and I left Saturday for Betsy's - right back into the center of the sun basically!!!
It was 102 and again no air conditioning in my car. Betsy's apartment has air and it was heaven when we dragged our tired sweaty asses up her three flights- YES, THREE PAINFUL FLIGHTS of STAIRS!
Alllllllllllllll weekend long I was never cool enough. Not until we got home last night and I tool the coldest shower of my life. The fog rolled in along the coast at about 7:00 pm and it was a welcome friend to me! hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Tod tells me this morning it is supposed to rain this next weekend! Praise God! He heard my prayers!!!

Oh! I have been meaning to post this!
I was lucky number 50 in Damaris' first kit for the month of May. Not only was the kit packed with cool fun goodies, but I received an awesome goodiebag with MORE cool awesome fun things!
Kira and I were jumping up and down in my living room opening up the package!
I never win! So it was super cool that I was the 50th person to purchase her first kit and receive my cool goodie bag!!! She ROCKS and her kits are KILLER!!!
(I just purchased the June kit and I LOVE it all!)
Posted by The6ofusinca at 10:01 AM
maaaan, what a looong week. One of those weeks where almost everything I touch, turns to poop. Kira I think feels the same way. School has been hectic, it's been hot, and our home has been busy and trying.
So the weekend is finally here. Kira is with her dad this weekend and Bernadette and Kira are at an allday crop tomorrow in Tracy.
Mom, Livie and I are going to Betsy's tomorrow morning for an overnight visit. Betsy is having her renewal jewelry party tomorrow night, should be fun. Livie loves hanging out with her and Mr.Murphy Man the cat.
Tod is working and will have the house to himself. Lucky dude if ya ask me!!!

We slept in on Monther's Day since Livie slept in till 8:ish. wohooooooo! Tod and the girls gave me a camera! Its' the one that I dropped and broke that I originaly got for Christmas last year. No warranty and buying a refurbished one wasnt an option when we could spend $60.00 more bucks and get a new one again...... soooooo that's what they did, and I am thrilled!
The girls got ready and headed to their moms. Tod got ready and headed to his moms and grandmas.
Livie, Kira, mom and I made our way to Mt.View to be with grandma, Karen, and Betsy.
We went to our favorite Italian place in downtown Mt.View and had a great lunch and a great time. Livie was great and the waiter was great with her! I got some killer pics of Livie with Betsy and Livie with Grandma Joyce.
With all us women, it gets load and chaotic and I wouldn't have it any other way. These women mean the world to me and I cherish these times with them.
Our family is blessed to have my grandma with us and my mom. Last year mom was so ill and close to dying, that it's a miracle that she is with us to share another Mother's Day and to see her healthy again.
Now all I gotta do is download pics...... hopefully tonight.
Tomorrow is Tod's birthday so I have some running around to do after work today and tomorrow, so ..... pics may be downloaded LATER. Hehehe

So Friday I woke up with my raging cold and it just seemed to get worse and worse as time ticked away. Friday Janice came by around 10:30 ish and we all took off to Michael's in Salinas. I was pretty disapointed in their store since they didnt have much on the shelves and I soo wanted to grab some goodies and head back home.
My eyes were watering, my nose was running and I couldnt stop sneezing..... Do I feel a fever coming on... ooh of course I do!
We headed back home to have lunch and scrpa and watch the second part of QVC scrapbooking. Not sure if it was just me, but I wasnt super impressed with their goods, so no ordering.
My fever raged on and I had a runny nose that just wouldnt stop. Tod watched Olivia for us. Janice made some mini acrylic albums for us, mom made a card, and Kira had a big fram and pictures she was working on for her friend who just lost their dog.
I took a break on the couch since I was feeling like doo-doo.
Last year I missed NSD and this year I was sooo ready. I guess my immune system wasn't!
So tons of snot rags later, I called it quits! I just couldnt go on, my body and head had had enough!
Tod ordered Hot & Sour Soup from our little resturant that we love and I was
mee~mee town before long!
NEXT YEAR, I'M SO ON IT!
(I did get one layout done, but no memory on Tod's camera to take a picture of it.. *Rolling eyes)

So it's NSD Saturday and we will be celebrating it tomorrow since Kira and Janice already have plans to volunteer at her school to paint and clean up, Comcast Cares Day- blah! Hehehe! Tod would be doing it but he's on call (YEA RIGHT!)
So today was the worst part of my cold, my head hurts, my nose hurts, my bones ache and I can't stop sneezing! aurgh!
The day didn't get better... went to Costco for snacks for tomorrows crop here and to get some prints and enlargements. The prints were fine, but my enlargements were wayyyy off, chopped heads, people cut out of the picture, sigh, I think being sick and in a hurry I didn't even think to look at how they would appear. The lady who works in the photo dept said to bring them to the service desk for a refund and to redo... yea, here's the thing, I have been in Costco now for an hour and a half, I am sicker then a dog, and , yes AND great Aunt Flo is here and its the second day so, nope, I can't just "stick around" and "refund, wait redo, and wait some more"
My BAD. So I sucked it up and left. I can work with the other pics I have, but was soooooo drooling over the enlargements that I picked out. I suck! haha!
Tomorrow Janice will be here around 10:ish and Kira is skipping school. Mom and Livie will be here too. We will have qvc on since they will have scrapbooking on to. I already told Val and we laughed about how annoying Lisa can be, but soooooooo wanna see some new toys and things to buy.
Tod will be home and has tins of things he will be doing outside.
Tonight I have to pick up Kira from school- they had a DC Meeting and then we have to go to the grocery store for things I forgot at Costco, like artichoke hearts, drinks, cocktail sauce, and lemons.
The menu is:
chips and salsa and guacamole
Later for lunch:
Pastrami sandwiches and chips
Stopped by Mike's on the way home and I haven't been in there since, hm, like a year, seriously, since Janice and I made my baby shower invits. Man, have they changed. OF COURSE they were out of Cricut cutting mats and blades- I guess somethings never change! ha! Man, Martha Stewart has a corner on the market with her line.
Ended up purchasing a Me and My Big Ideas paper pack, some rub-ons, and a little stamp for mom.
Almost time to eat, Tod is Q~ing outside, pork loin. hmmmmm me likie!
So here's to NSD weekend and I hope ya'll celebrate in your own great way!

During Val and Ant's trip to Ca, we took to Monterey and had a great time on the Piere and shopping. We took TONZ of pics, but this one is my favorite.
I have never been more in LOVE with this man then I am now. He treats me like a queen and now I know what unconditional love means.
Happy to be in his arms.
