Sometimes I get all caught up in the day to day life and forget to do the little stuff, like pick my nose. How can I forget to do that?

Not sure why but somehow I stumbled upon a Maroon 5 song that I hadn't heard before. I love it. And here are the lyrics...

Do you mean all the things you are?
Are you pleased with the way things are?
Wear that dress to protect this scar,
That only I have seen.

Do you give just to please yourself?
Do you wish you were somewhere else?
Justified all the things you tried,
said that it was all for me.

And be near,
Just for the moment,
Stay here,
Never go home.

Did you know that everything she ever does is for you?
So it goes, the story of a broken heart comes true,
It comes true.

Have you learned all the secrets yet?
Will you burn by the things I've said?
Took the dive just to feel alive,
but never heard the truth.

Now I'm in love but I don't know how
I'm in pain cause I want it now
As I sit watching her eyes close,
I slowly open mine.

And be near,
Just for the moment,
Stay here,
Never go home.

Did you know that everything she ever does is for you?
So it goes, the story of a broken heart comes true, comes true.

I am so confused by this.
I know that life is hit or miss.
Days are stung by too much sun,
I think that you may be the one.

Cover yourself up in me,
Shrouded in what could have been.
I will listen to your pain,
if you listen to me.

Did you know that everything she ever does is for you?
So it goes, as the story of a broken heart comes true,
Did you know that everything she ever does is for you?
And I know, the story of a broken heart comes True,
Come true,
It comes true,

I'm not sure what Christmas brings this year but I'll be sure to every healthy moment of it with my family. My husband and my son. The two people who love me unconditionally and will never leave my side. I have so many words to get out but am still having trouble getting them to ...flow.
to be continued...

Catching Up.

A lot has been going on over the past couple of weeks and I don't even know where to begin! We had company for Thanksgiving, they left, we went back to our regular scheduled programming and now it's already December 7 and I can't figure out why the heck time is going by so fast?

This year was our "1st Thanksgiving" as hosts. It was fabulous. I was really pleased with our turkey, all of the side dishes I made and the good company that surrounded us. Everyone seemed to enjoy the afternoon/evening and all in all it was a success! The only thing missing was Joey. He was in Florida with his dad and grandparents for the holiday weekend. He had fun, however, got a little too spoiled. Ugh. Nothing I can do about that except show him how much we love him and let him know that it's not ok to eat chocolate everyday and not brush your teeth. (but we won't talk about all of that....)

Joey had his first band concert for 5th grade on December 1. It was so cute! Brought back so many of my GOOD memories of being in band as I grew up. It was always so much fun and I will never forget some of the friends I made and the lessons I learned. I still remember my band teacher Mrs. Snyder. She was a hoot!

This past weekend was so great. Joey and I went to the movies on Friday night for a Momma-son date to see "The Christmas Carol". It was cute. Same story, obivoulsy, but the 3D animation was a lot of fun! Jim Carrey is always a pleasure to watch in movies as well. His humor always gets me laughing. Saturday morning Joey had his last soccer game of the season. So happy that is over. I think he was getting a little burnt out by the whole thing, not to mention I was a little burnt out by a certain mom. (again, something we won't discuss here). After Joey's soccer game we went to Chander Subaru to meet...... Travis Pastrana!!!!!!!!!!!!! When Paul's cousin Stacie told me he was going to be there for the day signing autographs I instantly knew I had to be there! I LOVE HIM and have always wanted to meet him. The best part was that he 100% lived up to my expectations. He was so charming and nice, down to earth, sociable and not stuck up like so many of the other "celebrities". Joey was really stoked to meet him as well, as he is one of his idols. I think Joey (& I) would give ANYTHING to just hang out and ride with him for a day. After spending the afternoon hanging out with him we went home to get ready for the Phoenix Suns vs Sacramento Kings BBall game. Something else I had been looking forward to for quite some time. When we lived in California, Paul and his brother had season tickets to the games so we went to quite a few. I really have missed basketball games and was so happy to go! It was def a different feeling though being almost the only Kings fan at US AIWAYS Center. It's ok, we still cheered them on (& they lost).

Aside from my daily schedule I have a lot going on in my mind and my heart. Trying to sort life out and take it one day at a time. I'm enjoying it as I go and am trying to make a difference. The answers will come to me, I just know it.
