Right brained

Are you a Right or Left Brained thinker? Inquiring minds want to know! Well I'm a Right brain thinker, who would've known? Hell, not me. I always thought that I was a Left Brained thinker because I do a lot of things that a lefty would even though I'm right handed. Take this test at Tickle

You're a Right-brained!

Ahhh the Weekend

Yes! Its finally within reach.... the weekend! I've been looking forward to this all week just so I didn't have to get up early in the morning. I am usually up by 6:30am the latest every morning, but for the past week (since returning from Las Vegas) I just can't sleep during the night and I've been falling a sleep about 3am, so I'm not getting up til' almost 6:45am to get the boys out for school. I then have been jumping right back into the bed and not getting up until 9:30! Now I don't know if the weather had anything to do with all this (but I think it did), because it has been raining and dreary since I returned. I've actually felt very depressed. It could also be that I'm home all the time now. Not working (due to dr's orders) is making it very difficult for me. Hopefully, it will get better now. The weather is suppose to really nice for the next 4 days and that itself is refreshing. I love to see the sun shining. And boy it is shining bright this morning! I might actually hit the track this morning for a walk.

2peas challenge for today: Share on your blog about your weekend plans.. what are your plans? What are you looking forward to? Give us all a peek into your life.. what are u looking forward to this weekend? I've got a busy Friday and Saturday. Today I need to go back to JC Penney's to return some stuff I bought DJ that didn't fit him. Then I'm going down in the scraproom to get a little organized and pack up a crop bag for a crop that I'm going to tonight. It is from 7-midnight and the girl that holds it calls it "Crop and Cocktails" very fun. Then tomorrow she is having another crop "Crop and Lunch" from 12-5. I then have a Comedy Show/Dinner to go to at 6:30pm. So I will be very busy. Thank goodness nothing is going on Sunday and hopefully I will sleep.

Thats it for me... Hope everyone has a terrific weekend.

What an evening...

DJ and I had last night! We attended the Suffolk County Wrestling Association's Annual Counties Award Dinner. It was held at Sports Plus here on Long Island. This dinner is held to honor the young men that placed 1st-6th at the Counties Tournament. DJ place 6th this year at 130 lbs. I was not really able to get good photos due to the lighting in the banquet room, but here are 2 photos. In the photo below, DJ is the one all the way on the left.

In the photo below DJ is with his coaches. These coaches just hate it when I have a camera with me, lol. They will miss me when I'm gone I keep telling them.Doesn't DJ just look so handsome? What else is a mother suppose to say? I just love this kid so much he doesn't have a clue! I'm so proud of everything that he has done so far in his life and I know that I will continue to be proud of everything that does in the future.

Gloomy Tuesday

hmmmm. Did I spell that right? I've been really out of it lately. I don't know what is going on with me. I'm exhausted all the time and just don't know what to do with myself. This weather on the East Coast hasn't helped since I got back from Las Vegas. Maybe it's depression? Who knows.

Ok,,,, changing the subject. This Sunday, ds DJ decided to wrestle. I just can't get a break lately. So we headed out early Sunday morning and didn't get home until about 4pm (which is pretty early). This is due to the fact that again, DJ stopped wrestling becasue of his hand. I don't know why he won't let me take him to the dr. but that is probably because he knows that it will get a cast on it and he still want's to wrestle. He was a little upset because he was actually wrestliing very well Sunday and he was over weight! Meaning he was in a higher weight class than he usually is in becasue he was 1/2 lb to heavy and he didn't want to run the 1/2 lb off that morning. So he was wrestling guys 8 lbs heavier. I know that it really doesn't seem like a big difference, but it really is. Here are a few photos from Sundays Wrestling.
This was the first match he is wearing the red and black uniform (singlet).

This next 2 photos are from his second match. He is in the blue and black singlet.2peas challenge: Describe your most perfect girlfriends getaway.. with all the details... where would u go? What would you do togther? I'm pretty sure that my best friend and I would love to go on another cruise. We had a wonderful time when we did that 26 years ago. I think we would love to do the cruise of Italy. I've heard great things about it. If not then the Carribean. We would do a lot of sight seeing, laying out in the sun, eating of course and just catching up with each other. It would be very relaxing and fun.

Wacky Wednesday

It is really wacky here today! I just don't know what the heck I'm doing today. We need to get ready to pack to go home. Yes, we are still in Las Vegas, going home tomorrow afternoon. To be honest with you, I really need a vacation from my vacation! This one has been very difficult. I can't wait to get home and just relax.

Today, I got up and decided I really didn't want to much. DJ stayed at my son Jonathon's last night so he wasn't here bothering me this morning to do something. Joseph and I went to my parent's house and hung out there for a little while. Then we went to Walmart and lost my mother. I don't know what she was doing, but we couldn't find her for about 40 mins! Just aggravates the heck out of me. Joseph and I then came back to my sister's and sat around for a while, waiting for DJ and my niece Alley to get back here so we could go to SkyMania. SkyMania is a trampoline place. It is wall to wall trampolines! They love going there. We went there for an hour of jumping. They jumped and I watched today.

As promised, I have some photos of Red Rock Canyon.
It is really beautiful there. We go every year. My kids never get enough of it.Below is Joseph on one of the Rocks! He is pretty high up there. You can't really tell that from this photo.
And here is DJ! They climbed all the way up! Ok. that's it for me today. Catch you all on Friday hopefully!

Hello Monday

It's been a pretty long week for me. I haven't been able to get on here to update due to DJ's wrestling schedule. We flew out to sunny Las Vegas last Monday and on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday it was wrestling all day! I'm exhausted. We will be here until this Thursday afternoon.

On Tuesday we went to Red Rock Canyon! We go there every year. It was just a wonderful the day we went. The boys hiked up the rock! They went pretty high. Almost to the top.When I get a chance to upload the photos I will post them. It is just a very beautiful place to visit and explore.

Easter was spent at my sisters. We just cooked the entire day. I baked a wonderful cheesecake (my great-grandmothers receipe), Peanut Butter Chocolate Bundt Cake (Melissa, from 2peas receipe) except I top it with a wonderful chocolate gnache and then heavycream whiped cream when served and then I also made "DIRT" thats a pudding with crushed up oreos. We also made lasagne, garlic bread, a ham, potatoes, gravy, corn, and broccoli.

I'm not so sure what we are going to do today. DJ want's to try to get into a gym and get a workout in. Then who know's what we will do. I would love to work on my tan.

2 peas challenge for today was about color. Lately I just love to work with red's, oranges, and black. I really like earth tones the most.

Ok, thats it for me today. I will try to post again tomorrow. Hope everyone has a wonderful day.
