My Last Day

If you only had 24 hours to live, what would you want to do?


I love the beach. I find nothing more relaxing than sitting on the sand listing to the waves of the ocean. Its so calming and soothing.

If I had one day left to live, I would pack my family up and spend the day at the beach. Just that simple. I would want to spend the day with the people that mean the most to me.

We must remember that tomorrow is not guaranteed. So live each day to the fullest. Live the life you've dreamed. Live a life of love.

At The End Of The Day

Day 1 - A photo of yourself and a description of how your day was

How was my day? Let's see it's almost ten o'clock at night and I am just now getting an opportunity to write this blog. I made it home, got everyone fed and off to bed. Its been a long day! Work was challenging as usual but I won't bore you with the details.

The highlight of my day was rushing home to watch my oldest play in her volleyball game. When I get there I was a little surprised to see that the building was dark. As I made my way to the gym I realized the electricity was out and here I thought they were just doing their part to conserve energy!

After a half hour of darkness the lights finally came back on and the games began. This is my daughter's first year playing high school sports and we are so very excited for her to have this opportunity. She is very passionate about volleyball and enjoys playing it. I love cheering for her and her team from the side line. And I have to be there on days like today when her team just couldn't pull off the win.

This evening games presented a lot of challenges for her and I. Everything from the way the team performed to the lack of communication from the coaches. Although things didn't go the way we would have liked I wouldn't have wanted to spend my evening any other way.

Me and my beautiful daughter

I would love to hear about your day...

Busy Times


It seems that no matter how much time I have it’s never enough. I promised myself that I would take time to publish a blog every day. I’ve been finding it very difficult. Not only because I am new to blogging but also because I cannot think of what to blog about! So here I am with five million project ideas written down and floating in my head but no time to work on them. Maybe it’s because I am completely addicted to Etsy’s forum and Facebook fan page! Or maybe it’s because I am blogging!?


I opened my Etsy shop at the advice of my family and friends who love my crochet items and suggested I should sell them. I have been on Etsy for a year and have made four sales. I think it’s great but now I am obsessed with making another sale. I am so stressed about it that I am overwhelmed with ideas on what to make so “people” will buy my items. So I need to slow down and focus on one thing at a time. I have special orders from friends and family I need to work on. But I really need to figure out what I want to focus on for my shop - any ideas please help a giel our! I need to slow down so I can continue to enjoy doing what I do. I don’t want to turn this into another job – I already hate the one I got!


I am not sure what I am going to do when I start classes – now that ought to be interesting. Between a full time job, marriage, 3 kids, church events, sports, family events and then adding school – is there enough time in the day? When I get home I have to stay away from the computer if not I am on facebook – chatting away with old friends or searching the web for another “idea” that I will never get to. So here goes to trying to stay focus and enjoy what little time I do have, doing what I enjoy the most - - crocheting
