Simple Musings

I am kinda sad we are going to be moving away from this lovely town home in Redmond 🙁 It is always so peaceful on the balcony, even the cats love watching the kids run back and forth.   However, it is time for us to be on our way to the next series in our lives together, Mark and I. We are getting a lovely house together! We are really excited to decorate, tend to, and make it ours…

Being a “Step”

Being a “Step”

I have to say one of the biggest struggles I have had in my recent years has been being a “step parent”. I do not want to be the kid’s mother, I do not want to take their mother’s place… honestly, I am not even sure I want to ever give birth to a child and ever be a “mother”.  But having these lovely kids in and out of my life has proven to be very emotionally challenging.  I love them…

Proposal.

Proposal.

Oh goodness! Mark proposed Saturday evening. He had his original plan foiled! He was going to take me up into a seaplane around Seattle and propose once we were done or something silly like that!! But LAKE UNION WAS FROZEN OVER. For Saturday and Sunday they said. Oh goodness. He planned to take me out to a VERY lovely dinner to El Gaucho in Bellevue. I chose an amazing swordfish steak and he had filet mignon. Our sides were steamed…

Dreams…

Dreams…

I have been to Africa three times this last year… yes I would love to go back. But being able to be there three times has satisfied my desire for a bit. It taught me to be content where I am in life. These last six to seven months have been a challenge and they have been fun. I feel so enlightened about myself and who I am. I have owned up to mistakes I have made and I am…

Opinions of Opinions.

Opinions of Opinions.

Well, where do we begin?! Chik-fil-A, Christians, gays, lesbians, government, mobs, fights…. Guh. No, I’m not going into my own opinion because I am more angry about people expressing their opinions in such a way that is NOT respectful to their fellow man/woman. Firstly, Christians, we have lots of Bible verses to throw in people’s faces (what about throwing some in our own faces), we have our faith, we have our beliefs, but we also have our HORRIBLE attitudes towards…

Don’t take your friends for granted.

Don’t take your friends for granted.

End of story. I am living alone right now and it has been hard because I love people. However, I do enjoy not living with Tyler. I have been able to have more friends over now that he is no longer here. I have had movie  nights with my nursing cohort girls, friends over to watch movies, and tonight I am doing a game night with friends. I am a loner and only child…. but I need you guys. You…

The image of ourselves.

The image of ourselves.

You know that each person sees themselves differently from the people around them. I think this is something we should all agree on. I see myself differently from how my friends see me. But I also have the idea of what I should look like to the people around me as well, that is not particularly where I am at in life yet. For example. I think I’m fat, huge, bulbous. My friends don’t. This helps me get out of…
