I Created... All is Good.

Over the weekend I actually did some scrapbooking. After months of nothing I was about to do a little something. I am hoping this is the beginning and there is so much more to come. Send good vibes this way.

This picture is the one I use on the invite to my 33rd birthday party. It was taken by Nayshawn.

Recital Weekend

What a busy but beautiful weekend. Saturday was the rehearsal for the kid’s Dance recital that was held on Sunday. It was a lot to do in such a short period of time but the end result was well worth it. And I had to do it all sick. My sinuses started acting up on Saturday and it went down hill from there. My kids make me so proud. I am truly blessed to have such talented kids. In all the excitement I only got one picture of Nayshawn and none of Niah. My losing my touch so I guess I’m going to have to order pics. After the show we took my little stars out for dinner at Chili’s. The dinner was good but it would have been better if I would have been able to enjoy their 2 for 1 cocktail special…LOL

Nayshawn in his hip hop costume...Loves it.

I am definitely looking forward to next weekend. 3 day weekend is always a good thing.

Oh and I did some scrapbooking this weekend... Just one page. I will post a picture soon.

May 17th 2010

How could I have forgotten to tell you guys the best news .... I have found a job and I actually am going on my 3rd week at work. It's a great company and a wonderful environment (unlike where I was working before). I really hope it stays that way. I was so stressed out at my last job that I was having massive headaches and even insomnia. I have decided that my philosophy will be to just go to work get my work done and go home. Really not trying to make friends. Of course I will have to socialize but I will consider my co-workers just that co-workers. I have come to the conclusion that once you bring friendship or want to be friendships in the mix it just causes a whole lot of trouble especially when there are women involved. I am looking for a peaceful working environment and if that means not getting mixed up in that whole friendship thing that's what I plan to do.
This weekend will be a busy one. The kids dance recital is on Sunday with a dress rehearsal on Saturday. No rest for the Mommies. I don't mind though, I really enjoy watching them do what they love to do. And then after that it will be a break for the summer. I am so ready to relax and go at a slower pace. I only have one trip planned for the summer so far maybe two. One will be to Jamaica. I haven't been back since my grandmother died 2 years ago. Am I ready??? Not sure but gotta do it. My Dad has got some really great spots that he's found for me to take photos of. So that has got me excited.
I haven't created anything in a while. I was browsing older posted the other day with all my scrapbook pages and painting and realize I really got to get on that. That is part of who I am and I've lost it. Being creative has always made me happy. So my goal for the summer is to start creating again.
TTYL .... hugs Shawna

Updated .. Finally

Hello ... Hello is this thing on??? Yes people it's me. I know I haven't been consistent with updating my blog but as always I promise to do better.
So my Little Man is a tween now...He turned 10 yrs old on the 5th of May. OMG I can't believe it. It seems like all of a sudden he's so grown. It's bitter/sweet. I'm happy that he's getting older and more mature but sad that he's a lot more independent now. Eventually he won't need me any more.

The life of a Mommy is so emotional. The little things can be so difficult to handle. But what makes us Moms is the fact that we are the only ones that can go through what we go through and come out of it stronger than we were when we first started.

Oh I've been thinking about doing a picture a day. I started this last year of flikr and never finished so maybe I'll start that again. We'll see.

Anyways ttyl ... hugs --> Shawna
