sometimes, when i don’t blog… i feel guilty. but it usually means, that it’s all good…. ( jayne i promise this post won’t cost you $10)
nothing crazy exciting is happening, but life is good 🙂 crazy busy.. but good 🙂
this time of year, when you’re supposed to reflect on what your thankful for… and gear up for all the holidays… is actually a more mellow time for me.
i don’t have a ton of family.. really its just me and my dad (who is in NH) and he could care less about the holidays…..
so with not as many classes going on… life is calm for me..
i’m excited to goto WA to spend some time with luke, and melyssa… but i also look forward to coming back….
i plan to finish going through boxes, which has been put off and put off… i’m excited to start my painting process and decorating… and just generally cleaning out AND SIMPLIFYING 😉 ( i sound like ali)
it has been a month since watcher passed, crazy how time flies… and 2morrow is 3 years since my grandmother passed…. not great things to think about… but taking some time and reflecting how much they influenced my life, is a GREAT thing to do.
i know a lot of my independence and stubbornness comes from my grandmother
i know she cringes everytime i layout in the sun with little to no sunscreen
i know she is watching over me, and still proud of who i am
i also just got off the phone with my dad, he found out today that my "step grandmother" ( who technically isnt since my dad is divorced from her daughter) has had a massive heart attack, and the outcome doesn’t look good. I immediately feel guilty for not writing her as much as she wrote me… but i am more focused on thinking good thoughts for her.
wow, this post was really all over the place!!
i hope to post from WA with some pics from the a muse store…
Enjoy your time off, enjoy your reflecting, enjoy the things you ARE thankful for…
(I’m thankful for you, because who else would I cause SO MUCH trouble with??) 😉
Jenn, You know that you have a wonderful extended family that loves you. One of my favorite sayings is, “Friends are the family you choose for yourself”
I’ve lived long enough to know that time spent feeling guilty about some thing is time wasted.
I’m glad the good memories are easing your loss.
Enjoy every minute of your trip. Send pics of you and the Amuse store.
Have a great trip! HUGS to all the A Muse ladies for me. 🙂
hope you have a fantastic voyage and come back with tons of coolio pics to share… happy turkey day (in advance) 🙂
looks as though the Jenn we all know and love is returning:). Reflection is good especially when the memories are happy ones as they are what makes you the person you are 2day. Have a great tim ae on your trip (just in case I don’t see you today), but I’m sure I will see you before I fly out.
Have a safe trip sweetie! See you when you get back.
