D.A.R.E graduate

congrats to our little lady

she got to spend some time with some amazing police officers for the DARE program at school.

the kids learned about drugs and alcohol and bullying.. staying safe and being smart.. lots of other things.. they even had to write essays!

most of the sixth grade class graduated last night.. there were a couple that didn't for some reason or another.. none of my business lol

but my Lacey did!

I have NO idea why these are sideways or how to fix them.. any suggestions?

Our new baby

2011 Chevy Equinox
 dontcha love it's face?

it lights up like a spaceship when it's dark! I love it!

we weren't even looking to buy a new car.. it just happened. lol

almost two weeks of CNA classes down.. cruising right along..
I'm going to take CPR classes in a week and a half, then I'm just about done.. then on to nursing school in May!
Still have a job.. amazingly enough.. we haven't received our 30 day notices yet.. good for the bank account.. I'm getting a little nervous about the school schedule and work, but it will all work out in the end, right?

Protection pouches

I made a couple protection pouches last night.
one for my sister and her family in Long Island NY.
luckily they are safe!
no power and flooding.. but they are safe!
love you sister!!

and one for me..

I put nine herbs inside. and a lucky stone.
I can't remember all the herbs.. marjoram, lavendar, sage, etc.. for protection and safety

said a prayer..
something like

may you stay safe and dry
may you feel warm and happy
may the storm pass quickly
may your home be blessed

blessed be

and they sit in my windowsill charging under the moon


want to see some of my Halloween decorations?

Happy Birthday Dad

you are 71 years old today.
you've been gone for a year and a half and I miss you every day. The pain gets easier to bear, but never really goes away. 
I still cry in the car, when a thought about you, a memory, or an image of you comes into my mind.
I still cry in random places, for no reason. yeah. it's not unusual.
the girls miss you so much.
they love their gramps
I am so glad they got to spend what time they could with you guys.

we know you are hanging out with mama. probably driving her nuts
we know
you two are happy

there are times when I feel you guys.
truly feel you here. with me.
I thank you for that.

here's some cake n pressies for you pops

and in the words of a great man

May you stay forever young.
