I love being one of those moms who cheers on her kids and team members! In highschool, there was a guy we all adored, Brent, whose mom was that mom you just adored. she screamed, hooted and hollered for each and every kid on the team. the guys all lived at their house. she treated them all like her own sons. I can only hope i would be that loved by my kids' friends. There is nothing more fullfilling than going to your kids game and seeing him look for you in the stands. smile when he see's you.....then try that much harder to impress you!

Brents mom passed away suddenly during highschool and brents friends were at her caskets side. Ive thought of those moments through out the years and only hoped i could be like her one day. The mom all the kids love!

Life is good today-and tomorrow will be even better. It so easy to get caught up and wine and complain about running here and there during the week with the kids, but after a nite like tonite, its all worth it! The look on my babies face as he strikes a friend out in their first baseball game was priceless. Then he looks over and smiles REAL big at you cuz your watching. thats what it is all about! the love of a family!

Today was a day that all i could think of proud to be an american. truly proud. i saw people stand up for what they believe BAD ASS country! If any of you noticed, all of the tea parties were peaceful. Americans in red/white/blue. i even saw a young lady dressed as the statue of liberty. They held up signs that were pretty funny too. My fav was a poster of George Washington with the logo on it WTF? How true is that!?!?! WTF is going on in our nation? Why is it acceptable that we have lost all control? I am praying that we are able to find a balance in our nation before it gets to be a full blown american revolution. Although i loved watching Glen Beck today at the Alamo in Texas. TX wants to sucede from the nation and be a country in its own. If so, I AM THERE! Texas is the proudest state ive ever visited. And ive been to a lot of states. Everyone has a flag pole with the texas and american flag. all business' have the flags flying proud and free.

Speaking of states, ive been to quite a few in my years and still have never found that perfect one to live in. I dream of colorado, but have never been there. weird huh? my dream is semi country living. Need to be near a city, but dont want to live in the heart of one. I wouldnt mind a smaller town even outside a larger one. Im spoiled, i need shops and culture and good food. Im done with heat, im done with cold. SO my friends, where is that perfect spot? I fear ill never find out! but when that day comes that i get to escape the desert again, im praying i find it. Green grass and happy people. thats not a lot to ask for. proud americans-hell its sounding like texas. so much for escaping heat!

moral of the story is stand proud today my peeps. stand up for what you believe in. be an american today and fight for our future. PROUD AMERICAN OUTTTT!!!

I have those friends who i can barely live without, but they all are FAR FAR away! Why is it the best ones you have are the ones you link up with early in life? thank god for things like the internet, email, blackberrys, blogs, webcams, facebook, cellphones with unlimited minutes........or id never make it in life! but how do you find new friends? most of my close close friends and family are states away.....i have made a few truly great friends here, but i want new ones. i want crafty ones. i want someone with common go to lunch with on a lazy rainy saturday (like today). Maybe when i move to a diff neighborhood ill find that gal pal. for now, ill just live day to day like ive been doing for years.....on the phone and internet 24/7. LOL

As i sit here with my 16y/o son...awaiting Metallica to be inducted....i cant help thinking how cool it is to like a lot of the same music as my kids. Its funny to think of my parents and what they made me listen to. Country western.....which was ICK to me back then and Paul Harvey-good day! Here i am approaching my 40s and thinking how COOL it is that my son wants ME to go to metallica with him....and im ALL OVER IT! I remember the day he started really getting into music and he and I went through my CD's. I gave him his first Ozzy CD and told him someday he would enjoy it. Now I am the one raiding his CDs and itunes. Times sure have changed, but i think for the better. As parents we seem to share more with our kids than our parents ever did. Im greatful every day for having something in common with my kids. Ive always had a passion for music and spent a lot of time as a teenager in my friends basement while they formed their band, which later became semi-famous in the midwest. Even had a band member break away and find fame. Those were good times...good times.....

So heres to you METALLICA! ROCK ON!!!!
