Need A Theme

I find writing about my life, or lack of one, a bit boring!  It is time to figure out what to do with this blog, or to decide that computer social interaction just is not my cup of tea!  It is time to do some thinking about what I want my blog to be about, and get more professional, or jump ship.

Off to brainstorm.

Jared and I went to see Pixar's Brave today!  I loved the movie and shed my share of tears.  It is a wonderful mother & daughter story that I can relate to so much as Emma and I journey through her preteens together!  A great family movie and even better for mother's and daughters to view together!

Determined to make her own path in life, Princess Merida defies a custom that brings chaos to her kingdom. Granted one wish, Merida must rely on her bravery and her archery skills to undo a beastly curse.

Star Spangled Sky!

Yesterday was the 4th of July and it was such and awesome day!  Michael and I rode our bikes to the village green to see the parade that Jared marched in with a friend while we ate ice cream that melted faster than we could eat it!  What and awesome time!  I was also blessed to be able to make dinner for a friend of Michael's that we took over to his 8th floor condo that had a beautiful view of Chicago.  I have never seen so many fireworks at one was amazing!

Happy Birthday America!  And thank you Lord for our many blessings.

No Honesty Allowed

So, I have a blog, but I have no idea what to write about because every time I write a post that expresses truths from my point of view my husband says I sound like a whiny baby and says this is why I don't have friends or family in my life.  Hmm.  So, I could talk about the weather, my kids, the recipes I cook, the books I read, or just make up stuff so I sound positive and happy every moment of my day and don't bore anyone with my thoughts and view points on the going on of my world.

I apologize for being a whiny baby and sharing my disappointments and frustrations , and I will do my best not to complain and try to be grateful for the good, and especially the bad while I learn to accept how I'm treated by others (good and bad) with my chin up and a smile on my face!

Thanks for your honesty babe!

As most of you know I am no longer on Facebook, but I would still like to keep in touch with my family and friends.  I have found that Google+ is a good way to do this.  I am still trying to figure out all the bells and whistles, but feel free to add me to your Google+ circle is you would like, or go check it out if you haven't already!  I also don't have email addresses for many of my family and friends, so feel free to share yours if you'd like!
