Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Charlie Brown was on last night so I had to watch it a day early:) I am blessed and grateful to have such amazing people in my life.

Slow Dance

While cleaning up my email tonight I came across this one Laura Martin sent to me June 2009. I thought it was a good reminder for the coming year.

"This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a
New York Hospital . It was sent by a medical doctor -


Have you ever
On a merry-go-round?

Or listened to
the rain slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?

Or gazed at the sun into the

You better slow down.
dance so

Time is short.
The music

Do you run through each day

When you ask How are you?
Do you hear

When the day is done
Do you lie
in your
With the next hundred chores
Running through
your head?

You'd better
slow down
Don't dance so

Time is
The music won't

Ever told your
We'll do it

And in your
Not see
his sorrow?

Ever lost
Let a good
friendship die

Cause you
never had time
To call
and say,'Hi'

better slow down.
Don't dance
so fast.

is short.
The music won't

When you run
so fast to get somewhere
miss half the fun of getting

When you worry and hurry
through your
It is like an unopened

Life is not a
Do take it
Hear the

Before the song is

Something in the bag

I was at the grocery store today getting Spot some food. I put the bag in the cart and pushed it over to get paper towels. While looks at the designs the bag started to move. This was not dog food settling downward, something in thete was crawling up. I take that bag back to the aisle and get another one off the shelf. No movement inside. I am not crazy this happened.

Christmas 2013

I bought Macie a cute Santa dress, she is modeling it here with Blas. Hollie and I on Christmas eve waiting for the guest so we may have dinner. My dinner of turkey, mashed potatoes with red chile, broccoli salad, and taquitos and salsa all made by Damacio except his mom brought her red chile. Delicious! Tree at their house. Resting after dinner. Not shown are lots of gifts being opened Christmas day.

Blas received headbands game for Christmas. My sister read the directions before the start of the game so everyone knew how to play. I think we all enjoyed the game far more than Blas.

Four peaks French toast

Tricia took Jess and I to breakfast this am. Mine was delicious, 1280 calories and I ate the entire thing. No need to put calories on the menu, spoils the fun.

So weird

Today I had to use this machine for pt. It is weird and I didn't like it. You put your hand in for 15 minutes and move it around in corn husks that have been shredded and it is hot. Supposed to help with circulation.
