7/1/13 01:34 am - 1st of July

Don't know what I stopped posting in here. I can't believe I've had this journal for 10 years!! *hugs LJ* haha

It's late but I just wanted to stop in and say hello.

12/19/10 10:25 am - CHRISTMAS

I love and don't like this season.

My biggest dislike...is the materialism of it all. Why all the need for gifts? Why all the pressure to buy the perfect gift? I don't like it.

I love traditions. I love baking christmas themed cookies, cupcakes, brownies, etc. I love the colors. I love the lights. I love the neighborhoods all lit up and decorated in Christmas decor. I love walking into a store and being bombarded with the smell of faux cinnamon and apples or some wintery smell. I love putting up the tree and decorating it. I love sending and receiving christmas cards. I love tamales because this is the perfect time to make and eat them. I love Christmas songs! And last but not least, I love Christmas movies, especially the animated Rankin Bass claymation ones.

Yes. This season truly has my heart. But not my wallet. I will be content not receiving any gifts. As long as I can sing some carols or listen to them, or watch The Nutcracker (the ballet, not the movie), and bake to my happy little hearts content, I will be fulfilled. This Christmas and every Christmas :)

The beginning of Up always makes me teary eyed if not cry.

I'm a total sap :(

When it gets unusually cold, snowy, and/or rainy, do you prefer to remain indoors? If there's a long stretch of bad weather, do you tend to get depressed and/or stir crazy? If so, how do you cope?


It gets cold here, and occasionally rainy. It's never snowed here in Los Angeles during my lifetime. I don't stay indoors during "bad" weather. I'll go out if there's a storm or if it's cold. I like to do both, stay at home and stay indoors. I love cold weather. i can't get enough of it. It's hot weather that I can't stand. It depresses me. I HATE the heat. Unless you stay indoors with the AC full blast, there's really nothing you can do about it. Hot weather makes me MISERABLE. Where I live it might rise to the 90's but it feels like 100. I hate the sun.

I love waking up to cold, cloudy days. They make me happy. I often wonder if I have the opposite of seasonal affective disorder. Summertime makes me feel more depressed.

12/26/09 12:34 pm - Writer's Block: The morning after

Do you usually experience a let-down after the holidays or a wave of relief that the social obligations are over?


I experience a wave of relief. It's all over. I don't have to dress up to go to parties. I don't have to worry about the traffic getting there (or anywhere). All the gifts have been given, everyone's happy. No more baking, no more taking anything anywhere. No more wrapping. Life itself is extremely hectic and can be stressful, the holidays add to that. There are things that I didn't get to do, that I wanted to do, but now that Christmas Day has passed I don't feel obligated to stressed out about doing them. It's done. It's over. Moving on.

It's a wonderful season, I love it. It's just so difficult getting everything done. Attend religious events, cultural events, holiday parties, send out the christmas cards, make sure you don't forget any gifts, did I bake with my son? Did I read him enough Christmas stories? Did we watch enough Christmas movies? Do I have enough tape and wrapping paper? What about that Christmas cookie recipe, did I ever print it out? Do I have time to take my son to see Christmas lights? And heaven forbid anyone get sick...that can put everything on the backburner for DAYS and then you're REALLY in trouble!

So...today, the day after Christmas I am experiencing a wave of relief. Now...the task at hand is CLEANING UP!!!! Oh no. Why didn't Santa bring me a maid?? haha..

7/7/09 09:45 pm - MICHAEL

I am really upset right now. I registered online for tickets to Michael Jackson's memorial service. I used my 3 email accounts to do so. I knew it was a slim chance. Sunday I had 2 emails telling me sorry, you were not selected.

Today on my 3rd email account I received an email telling me congratulations, I've been selected, where and how to pick up my tickets...yada yada yada...I received that email TODAY. This AFTERNOON.

The memorial service was THIS MORNING....

UGH...............

no words.

I slept wrong a few nights ago and my right shoulder HURTS. The pain should have gone away by now, right? it hasn't. It's beginning to hurt even more. I think I'll take an anti-inflammatory.

5/8/08 04:09 pm - VACATION!

I've been on vacation for over a week and it feels goooooooooooood. I am LOVING IT. I'm off to edible arrangements to pick up some dessert, then over to Elsa's house for dinner! but first...I must do ...LE MAKE UP!

I need a digital camera. : / but being that I dropped a good $750 on tires and brakes for my car last week, it's not going to happen this month. I'm still waiting on my rebate! I should have been one of the first to it. I wonder what's going on.....
