time to vote....

ok- it is time to vote...

am i the #1 oddest odd ball in the world?

it is snowing like a blizzard outside
the thermometer says it is 22 degrees
and i am sitting in my toasty office
wearing flip flops and smiling :)

ooh-pick me! pick me!

My heart is smiling :)

let me first start by saying i am easily amused,
i am easily entertained, and i am odd. i always tell
my kids "i am odd and proud of it" then i go into my
speech that if we were all the same what a boring life
it would be.......and i am sure in their heads after the "i am
odd and proud of it" all they hear is blah blah blah....

anyway... on my way to work (every day since 1-1-08)
i crank my "theme song" of the year as loud as i can stand
it and sing along. since there are no kids in the car to tell
me i dance better than i sing. btw, what a polite way to say
you are a lousy singer... i have such (occasionally) polite
kids. but today i added in a little xtra fun... i am tapping my
my feet with my freshly painted toe nails.... oh yeah, did i
mention i am tapping my flip flop wearing feet?
those of you who know me once i mention the flip flops
can imagine just how happy i am..... now i realize this is
january and it is cold out....not to worry... i brought my furry
clogs to work .... just in case some of that white
stuffs starts falling from the sky....


today in "my world" as crazy as it my be
life is good.....

fav song of the week

since i seem to be forever behind on my song of the week (good thing i don't try to do a song a day) i had a hard time choosing so here is another one for you....

wind beneath my wings
by bette midler

i dedicate this song to my kids they are truly the wind beneath my wings they lift me up and keep me going when i just want to crash to the ground and give up... they are my heroes... being teenagers in the here and now is not an easy task with all the peer pressure and drugs so easily available... but they are making the right decisions and i am proud of their choices. i love you all three !

Today is just another ordinary miracle

today is just another ordinary miracle

if you think about it for very long there are a lot of ordinary miracles that happen all around us on a daily basis....
and if i were to pause for a second in my busy life i would recognize more of them. but one miracle that happened today simple as it may sound my first miracle today was... i woke up! that in its self i believe is a miracle....

another miracle i saw this morning came in the form of the beautiful face of my daughter smiling at me. which believe me the smiling part does not happen very often on a school day at 5:30am she most definitely is NOT a morning person.

so, i took that wonderful miracle of her smile and stored the image in my heart to retrieve
on a day when it is not a smile i happen to see but a frown.

ryane- thank you for your beautiful smile today :) i love you

this brings me to my fav song of the week
