Last few days...

Of packing and moving. I may not be able to update you all on the goings on..but believe me, it's rather dull with just boxes and boxes and boxes. We are having a cul-de-sac dinner potluck tonight and that should be nice and teary. But we're leaving on Sunday. So internets, I will update you all soon.

I'm starting to feel...

A little sad. We have had some rather difficult times here in Austin, but we've made some beautiful memories too. I think little man is starting to feel the change upon us and well, I guess that'll happen when you explain to him that we're going to be moving. And the fact that our place has boxes upon boxes that are about to be filled with our material possessions and our memories of our time here. Austin has always been a very endearing place for me. And I do hope to return one day.

On a brighter note, I found these interesting things in our front garden today. Glass, I guess that's not so great. Rusted old nail, a 1976 dime, and a very rusted and faded out penny, I think. I still very much enjoy finding old things. I had a dream to be an Archeologist once, a female Indiana Jones, yet a little more subdued and not as sweaty. But for the most part, I wanted to be one. And it all started by finding an Indian arrowhead with my father at our ranch. I miss those days.

Slowly but surely...

We're starting the packing process...I'm not liking it at all. I'm mostly waiting for one of my client's (I'm a doula/labor/birth assistant in case you didn't know) to have her baby..and I'm thinking it's going to be happening sooner than later. Yesterday, my dear neighbor brought over these beauties from the hens in the back...aren't they beautiful? Amazing. So amazing.

Family weekend....

This weekend, my cousin Christina got married. She had a beautiful wedding and it was nice to see my extended family once again.

Well, with all the hub-bub of getting accepted to school, we're moving?! We are moving back to my hometown of Corpus Christi to be with my Mom and to save up on some dinero. Then we'll be up in Denton for school sometime this Summer, certainly before school begins. This week we've already started moving/packing/simplifying our wares and things... I think we're gonna be having a garage sale this weekend too. So there it is...I don't want to leave Austin, but looks like it's time to go...

It's been one of those days...

We are going through some major changes..leaving old jobs, starting new ones. Possiblities of moving, possibilities of heading back to pursue my MFA. And all of this, literally, all of this is so complex. All I can do is laugh when my son does things like these. And there's nothing fancy about him at all, but he does make me smile, among stress and chaos. He still makes me take a break, breathe, and smile. Thank God.

It was a beautiful day today. Made little Valentine's day cards with my little man and made cupcakes that are sweeter than sweet for dear neighbors and friends. We stayed home tonight. We have a tendency to go out for a nice meal on this occasion, but, we stayed in for a yummy pizza and a glass of wine. Not to mention chocolate covered strawberries from Jen, a rose, and a kiss from my lovelies. I hope you had a wonderful day and evening too. We all should celebrate the love we have for one another EVERY single day.

I'm still waiting...

Waiting on whether or not I have been accepted into a Graduate program. My MFA..Master of Fine Arts in Performance and Choreography. It's been two weeks. And yes, I know these things take a while, but c'mon?!

La dee da..I'm a wierdo...

So, I found this via Floresita...and i thought I'd let you know of my wierdness. Here goes:

1. I hate having closet doors open in my bedrooms at night. We have 2. My husband has one, I the other. and there's a tendency for his door to be open at night. It kinda freaks me out. So, I close it, right away.

2. Refer to #1...actually, I have to close all the doors to the empty rooms (2nd/3rd bedroom and bathroom, etc.) when I'm sleeping. Just have to do it, or I don't feel right?!

3. After washing my hands after using the facilities in a public restroom, I almost never open the door with my bare hands. I'll either wait for someone else or get a paper towel to do it.

4. In the morning, I have to open at least one window blind/curtain in every room to let the light in. I feel awful when the whole place is dark and "covered."

5. At night, I have to have the sheets all the way up to my chin. Yes, all the way up. Sometimes, only my face will show, like an eskimo.

6. I sometimes feel wierd using public phones. Like something is going to jump out of the receiver. So, I just wait till I get home. And I don't have a cell phone.

7. I have to have a banana EVERY morning. When I don't, I feel just awful.

8. I always wash my hands BEFORE I handwash the dirty dishes. Yes, before.

9. When paying, I always make sure my bills are facing the same direction. With the highest value on top and then all others in decreasing value.

10. I always pick up pennies. But get a little wierded out when the "tail is up."

Okay, you've been tagged. Are you a wierdo too? Probably...

Back to the blog world...

Where have you been you say? Well, I've been caught up in LIFE. The good and the bad. But, I'm back. And I've been gone for a while. I'll catch you up on what's been happening too. Life is funny. You get caught in middle of something and it whisks you away. I'm glad you're here too.
