Happy Easter

She is

A handful. She is in constant motion but so sweet! I am trying so hard to get the perfect photo. But not sure I am gonna get it. She looks away so quickly I can capture her sweet face. But I will keep trying. She wants to eat my camera lens. She got me up twice last night, I felt like an new mama.

I hate to say it, but she likes Grandpa better and has spent many hours in his lap today. She likes her new friends, chole and zoey but I am not sure they like her back. But they play around and growl at each other and still little Pepper comes bounding in to say hello. Oh she is cute.

Grammy and Grandpa

Grammy and Grandpa are babysitting this weekend. Its quite a challenge given the house full of animals we have. My goal is to get lots of pics, BUT that is going to be a challenge.
She is constantly moving, chasing, running. She does not sit still and most of my pictures are blurry, like the one above. But I love the composition of her reflection in the dresser. She was chasing chipper at this point. Plus when I get my big camera out she runs towards me and is too close to shoot. However my iphone is ok., So I will keep trying. Silly girl. She slept with richie, zoey, chole and I and got me up twice in the night. I am so glad I choose to have kids young, I could never do it now!!!!!! WE are leaving her in auntie Rachel's hands tonight while we go to Gourmet club tonight. Should be an interesting weekend.

I was still feeling somewhat under the weather Monday morning, not feeling myself still feeling a little nausea with a lingering headache just waiting for a migraine to start. I had been sick for two days not counting the five days of a nasty cold last week. I was going to stay home but alas the sick calls came in coupled with other staff already off with not enough people to cover the afternoon I had to go to work. I was a trooper as always though it was not easy. Then headed out to bowling since most of the team was gone I brought Rachie along to fill in. We are still in first place and I bowled my personal best of 176. So hopefully today will be a better day.

Sick Day

Friday started off okay. Work was as usual same old story, busy and working till five while others headed out early to start their weekend. I have to say that I want to be one of the lucky ones who get to head out early on fridays, but alas it still isn't happening. But I had happy hour to look forward to.
A purple caddilac margarita at Mexicali was in order.

Laughing and joking with the friends Nancy and Sara
Kerry, Dawn and Heather.
Went home early for a good nights sleep. I only had two margaritas, but had a cold and had some Sudafed on board as well. Woke up early 5 am Saturday. Got up made coffee and boom nausea hit me, then I spent two hours in the bathroom.

My dad said I was not as young as I used to be, hangover they thought. I thought OK maybe it was the sudafed and the tequila. I got up took a shower and tried to go to the petstore, Didn't make it, got worse barely made it back home where I stayed in bed till 5 am today. Migraine hit on top of the Nausea and vomiting and ugh. I have not had a migraine in years, I was too nauseous to be able to take something and suffered till early this am. I had to cancel my LA shopping trip today and hope I continue to feel OK today. When you only get two days off a week, to spend one in bed really sucks. I guess they are right I am not as young as I used to be. This balance I am trying to get in my life is not working out so well I think. I am going to have to try to work on it a little more.

Project LIfe Week 14

Project life week fourteen. Still keeping up, still loving the process. I find myself putting more stuff than pictures in it lately and writing down little thoughts instead of just what I did that day.

This week I had four 5.5 x 11 inserts added. This from my trip to see my mom
Pepsi's 9 week layout
Dinner with my future inlaws, heather and garrett
LIfe from behind lightening (i am thunder LOL) I spend so much of my time at work and with Tommy that it requires me to journal so I am not so stressed. Ha HA
The right side.

I really really love it.

10 weeks

My little grandpuppy, Pepsi as I am calling her, turned 10 weeks and in the spirit of things I went to take some more pics. I consider it training for when I have grandbabies. I am sure Heather and Garrett think I am nuts but alas I am allowed as I am a grammy. Grandpa (garrett hates Grandad) taught her how to use her doggy door this past week and she is a pro at it already going outside on her own to go potty. Just shows she has the Welch smarts. She is super lively and loveable. Richard goes and sees her every afternoon to play with her and teach her more things just like a Grandpa is suppose to do. I shutter to think what will happen when they do have babies, I may never see richard again unless he really does open Dicks Diner and Daycare, but he may need to change the title to Dicks Diner, Daycare and Doggy daycare LOL.
I played with brushes over the weekened and put her final pics in this layout. She has such a sweet face. Love it

The Flower Fairy

The flower fairy. That's what he calls himself. Since January he has bought me flowers every week, sometimes more than one bunch of flowers per week. I have taken photos of each and every one of them and placed them in my project life book, but these are four of my favorite with the purple and green ones being my absolute favorite. There is nothing like flowers to make you feel happy, loved.

My Focus

Rachel has been my soul focus these days. She is so BEAUTIFUL, courageous, smart, funny simply fabulous. She just bought her first new car and will be moving back to Long Beach in a couple of months. While I am feeling like my life has been out of focus, hers is bright and clear!!

I took Dad to visit Mom today. The sun was shining and green was everywhere.
My dad was a little blue thou. He really misses my Mom, as do I. It has been five months.
He prayed for her, talked to her. Cried a little.
Was silent, remembering.
Touching, feeling.
Was warm and full of memories.
Mt heart touched hers.
I said goodbye yet again.
Wished I had another day.
Said goodbye till the next time...

I stopped by and said hello and then goodbye to PA as well.

I drove away with my dad in tow knowing they were looking down from above, missing us too.

I am finding a bigger mix in my project life book. I am mixing pictures with STUFF. Stuff like receipts, netflix envelopes, tags etc. I enjoy the process.
