What is Your Pet-Peeve???

I usually don't like writing negative stuff, just because that's not who I am. Today I will have to make an exception for that.. LOL! Okay, who here uses the carpool lane?? Anyone?? I will have to say that I do, Monday through Friday twice a day on our way to work and back. Now on to my other question. What is considered the speed limit on the carpool lane?? I believe it's 65 mph... Okay yes, I said 65 mph Not 40 mph or 35 mph.... I think you kind of know where I am going with this right? Well this morning on our way to work traffic was flowing pretty good, which we made it a point to get on the road a few minutes earlier due to fact that every one is back to full schedule now that summer is over and traffic can get a little hectic. When all of a sudden we come to a halt on the freeway going westbound to work. My husband tells me he thinks there might be a traffic jam probably caused by an accident or lane closure. There where about four cars ahead of us and my husband asked me if I can see what is going on. He turns on the radio to 1070am and they aren't mentioning any closures of lanes or any kind of traffic jams on our way. When all of a sudden my husband notices as we are going up a hill that there was a car that was going about 35 mph on a busy day on the carpool lane and holding up traffic.. Come on!!! Please if you can't handle the carpool lane and it's speed don't get on it and hold up traffic behind you. Especially in the Fast-Trak Lane!

Happy Birthday to my Beautiful Mom!

My mom's birthday was this past Wednesday September 23.. She is 62 years old to be exact! I love this woman with all of my heart. I know there are times I don't say it enough or simply show it. But my mom and I have this weird relationship that only her and I could understand and she knows that I love her so. This woman is one of the strongest woman I've known. She has a kind heart and takes every ones faults at stride. She deserves more than what I can give her. I pray to GOD that he keeps her here for many more birthday celebrations. What would I do with out her.. I LOVE YOU MOM!!!

First Day of Fall....

I can't believe summer is over. It really never felt that summer even was here. I am not complaining I am just saying. But now that Fall is here I can't be more happy that I get to finally wear my warm cozy clothes. In that wardrobe boots, scarfs, gloves and hey maybe even leg warmers are included here.. lol! I love the feeling of cold days where you get to enjoy those nice cups of hot chocolate with the heater on and some pumpkin spice bread. I am sure you are all with me on this one.

Yesterday evening I was pretty busy with trying to get my photos
submitted for my photo class. Wich I am happy to say that I was able
to get it done... This week tutorial was some what of a challenge for
me.. I do thank my hubby and son for being so understanding and
supportive with me. I just thought I would share my son's drawing with
you.. He was sitting in my computer room while I was doing all the
editing and tells me he drew a picture for me... So here it is... I
was so amazed that my 3 1/2 year old son actually put this little
dragon together all by himself ... And that's when it hit me again...
That my baby is growing up... I posted this picture very proud up in
my computer room his little eyes just shined looking at his art work
being displayed..

Is it too soon to think about Halloween??....

Costumes, Candy, Pumpkins.... Is it too soon to think about Halloween?? Halloween is one the most awaited holidays starting from toddlers to adults just because we look forward in looking our best in that one costume we put so much thought into. Through out the years I have managed to show off some of my costumes. Since I don't like to spend so much money on something that I will be wearing a few times through the month of October. I usually go to thrift shops or find stuff around the house that will make my costume stand out. I love costume contest and I always like to participate. This is always the question between my co-workers and I...What will you be for Halloween this year?

This is my little guy as a cowboy..

Me, as a Major League Baseball Player....

Me, again as soldier... I actually won the costume contest at work...

My Husband and I. Him as Pancho Villa and I as an Adelita....

Road Trip...

Today my friend is hosting the topic "ROAD TRIP or DAY TRIP" . The question was do you and your family love to road trip or day trip?? My answer to that was Yes, we do! We like to wake up on Saturday or Sunday mornings with no plans sometimes and say OK lets see where the road takes us. I think the best one are the ones that you don't plan at all. We like to explore our surroundings and see what is out there.. This was one of my favorite locations. This picture was taken at Bayside View Park in Chula Vista, CA. The park was beautiful and just like the name of the park it had a view to the bay.

How to get my son to sleep in his own room??

I have been dealing with trying to get my son to sleep in his own room for quite some time now.
My son is 3 1/2 years old and is still sleeping in our bedroom. No, not in the same bed but in the same room. His crib is one of those that go through the stages with your toddler turns into a day bed then to full size bed. I am sorry to say but my baby better be out our room by the time he is using a full size bed.. (hee hee). On Monday I decided to give it a try and tell him that tonight sweetie you are sleeping in your own room. So we walked together to his room tucked him under the sheets, said a prayer, read him a good night bed story looked for the moon through the window and said my good nights.. In the back of my mind I said to myself "WOW" this is really going to work!! I went back to my bedroom got in to bed said good night to my hubby and I even told him I can't believe he is really doing this...... 30 minutes later..... Guess who was at my bed side... Yes, you guessed it.. My 3 year old son was there saying he wanted to hop in to our bed. I guess I will have to try again. First attempt failed... I have many more to attempts to try.
