distractions

Oh boy.

I'm fighting a super-duper craving for potato chips right now,
it's the evil PMS in action.

Instead I'll have an apple and a cuppa this
and hope the cravings pass:


Gotta love organic hot chockit...

Apologies for those of you who know me on Facebook,
as most of these pics aren't new for you.

But whatevs - maybe some stories on here will make up for it? ;-)

My sneaky little sister took this photo of me
last month at my brother's wedding.

I have no clue what I was daydreaming about.


It's so kitch, but I love it :-D

My mom's going to Polynesia in less than a week, 
can you believe it?!

She's dreamt about it for decades and planned for it last year,
and now the countdown is but a few short days.

I think she's flying to the west coast and from there
they get on a huge cruise ship and tour the Polynesian islands,
with lots of stops for visiting.

I'm so excited for her!

You only live once
so make the most of your dreams.

Sometimes it takes enormous sacrifices and face-offs with tough choices
but down the road: you're not taking your wealth with you to the grave.

Live now while you still can :-)

Go mom, go!!

Meanwhile, at the techno-farm:


Vegas watches soccer while I watch him watch soccer.

Someday we'll get to decorating this giant shell of a place...

Anyone else here dreaming of hiring a professional decorator
to take the pain away? LOL!

You are so beautiful.
What's organic hot chocklit? Sounds like I would like it. Somehow ur flat screen tv reminds me of the one we have here in our apartment.
