Missing Grandma, 6 years later

Well it's a sad day for me. I lost my beloved Grandma 6 years ago today. She was like a mother to me. Those who read my blog know I have spoke of her before with a dedication. I just want to repeat some of my words to her on this day. I will include the link for the post I put for her because it meant so much to me to write about. She was everything to me and with time it seems to only get more painful without her. With everything in my life that happens I want to speak with her and I miss our talks and her hugs. She helped raise me with my Mom and we were so close. Soon after her passing I couldn't stop crying and felt so lost without her. I prayed that I could feel some sort of peace and the next day I found out I was pregnant with my twin boys. I think they were a gift from her to allow me to go on with my life and to lessen the loss of her a bit. But now that my boys are 5 years old and don't consume me as much as they did as babies I find myself being lost without her a lot of the time. I really miss her so much. I would do anything to see her again. I know in my heart I will someday. I love you Grandma. Te Iu Besc always..

My hair nightmare!! Anyone have a bag?

I have been going to my hairdresser for about 2 years now. She is fully aware of how we do my hair each and every time. I have never had any problems. I usually get it short in the back with layers in the front. I always leave it above my shoulders to put in a ponytail since I enjoy wearing them often. Then I enjoy the layers that hang down in the front. The other night she asked me and I told her I wanted the same. She suggested we layer it a little more in the back. I decribed a little like Rachels haircut in friends later in the show. We seemed to be on the same page. I told her what I wanted and she told me that was exactly what she would do. And even though the back will be a little different it would be nothing too drastic. WELL, she couldn't be more wrong. My hair is a horrible nightmare. It's really short in the back and longer in the front. The complete opposite then what I usually get. I CAN'T put it up in a ponytail. Any kind of style she put that night is no longer there. My hair has become totally unmanagable. I want to scream and cry. I want to go and cut off all of her hair for messing up mine while slapping her a few times. How could she think this would look good? She just got a promotion as art director that day. She should know better. I am so upset because I look so ugly! I feel ugly. And there is nothing I can do about it. I can't get my hair back. I don't have any options accept to let it grow but that feels like it could take forever. I don't even want to leave my house. I have never had this happen before and I have to tell you it's not fun. I'm just so upset by this hair nightmare. I want my hair back! NOW!

RIP Corey Haim Gone Too Soon

December 23, 1971 - March 10, 2010

This is so sad. 1980's movie star Corey Haim died today of an apparent drug overdose. I am so upset about this and sick and tired of these movie stars always dying way too young. Drugs are pure evil. They destroy so many lives and I just wish these people would realize this before it's too late. I wish Corey Haim could have been one of the lucky ones. He was so talented and had so much to offer us if he could have just got control of his life. I will always remember him in some of my favorite movies, Firstborn, The Lost Boys, Lucas, Dream a little dream and License to drive. Corey Haim you will be missed. I know you had many demons you fought daily and I'm really sad it had to end this way. Hope this lost boy has found his way to heaven and I hope he has finally found some peace and are happy wherever you are.

Twilight, where have you been?

Ok, so I think I'm the only one on the planet that had never seen the vampire thriller Twilight and I never really understood all the hype. but now that I watched it over the weekend I must say I have become a fan.

Although the acting was not great nor was the story line, there is just something about it that hooked me. I enjoyed my self tremendously and of course it doesn't hurt to look at a certain eye candy named Edward. Besides his looks, something about him intrigued me. He is very sexy and the mystery of him and the question can he control himself around the girl he loves kept me very interested. It has mystery and seductiveness without all the vulgar sex, blood and gore. The characters are unique all in their own way and the music and scenery is truly beautiful.

I am looking forward to finally catching up with everyone else and seeing the second movie when it comes out later this month on DVD. Then come summer time I hope I can make it to the theatre to see the third installment. Twilight... where have you been all my life I wonder, but now that I know about you, I can't wait for more.

Hello Spring.. Cleaning that is

Today is a cold day yet I'm getting started on some early Spring cleaning. Starting tomorrow it looks as if we will have at least 5 days of warmer weather. I am thankful we had a decent winter, but I have to tell you I'm looking forward to it.

I always thought having this 2 story dream house of mine would be fabulous. While it is in many ways, when it comes to cleaning it can be a bit overwhelming.

I have 4 kids (yes that includes my husband) and they all seem to have amnesia when it comes to remembering how to pick up after themselves and what a hamper is really for. My two little monkeys like to run around and leave toys and their mess everywhere and it seems to always find my couch cover or clean floor. Not to mention please guys, aim aim aim... My teenage daughter seems to think her bedroom floor is a closet and I get that famous roll of the eyes with any mention of her doing chores. My husband still can't get the hint the garbage bag is waiting for him by the door for a reason and clearly that rinsing a dish and putting it into a dishwasher only takes 30 seconds.

Being a full time Mom is a huge job. Although I'm very lucky I get to stay home and be with my children it doesn't mean I enjoy every aspect of it. I hate dishes and laundry. It seems when I finally get ahead there is a new pile waiting for me.

I dream of the days when I can twinkle my nose like Bewitched and everything is done for me. But until then I have this huge job to do myself and I am going full throttle at it. Ready, set go....I'm on my way...Wish me luck. Things could get scary
