You know sometimes everything has u running... running to work (or in my case) walking to it. Running to get home and get Emily off the bus, deciding on dinner and homework and everything, but today I was sitting downstairs looking out the front window and noticed this squirrel sitting on our front steps and eating the left over part of Emily's peanut butter/jelly sandwich. I could tell it was from our trash because I use a cookie cutter to cut out the center and throw away the rest. I was just so fascinated watching this cute lil' guy eating this sandwich... the way he held it with his two hands, the way just like a little kid would---- he ate the best part first... he licked all the peanut butter and jelly off. I laughed out loud over that one. Infact when he was done eating the one side's peanut butter and jelly off-- he went to the other side before eating any of the just bread part. I just sat there watching him and realizing how nice it was to just take that momentary pause of everything and enjoy that moment... just me and what should have been a pesky squirrel who got in my trash cans but today he was the sweetest lil' thing.... and a needed pause for me. When I got up and looked at the clock it was 5:11 of course and that made me smile as well! =)

Okay.... I'm starting to run out of titles for my entrees.. I'm just gonna start using a play on Movie Titles unless something else hits me that I like better. Anyway, just thought I would write about stuff that's going on. I can't believe how fast May is going... part of me is happy... because I can't wait for summer and Emily to be off. But also it just reminds me of how quick life goes by... April was a flash... and now May... it just goes by too fast. But each week I still can't wait til' the weekend. May's always a bittersweet time for me. My Mom died on May 9th, and it being the month of Mother's Day.... it is both a very sweet time and a very difficult time. I didn't forgot to acknowledge my Mom on here on May 9th.... it's just I did it on Facebook. I thought about her alot that whole week. I always think about her but I really thought about her that week. It's tough. I just miss having her here to say the most generic things to.... like crocs, would she like them? Or Kenney Chesney is in concert and wishing my Mom was here to take. Or just wishing she was here to eat chinese food with. Or would she like this new flavor of Rita's? Wanting to show her Emily's school pictures and get her reaction to them. SO many things... U just don't think that u'll miss and u miss SOOOO badly. I know she would get a kick out of EMily's obsession with the Sound Of Music... she would think that was cool! Wanting to share Emily with her... all the time!!! To see her love for her, to see her amazement of her! I just would really love that. It's all gone and its so unfair.... but that's life. It sucks sometimes but has moments of Brilliance---and u hope for more of those moments then the other. Anyway, what else.... we are going to the Memorial Day parade at my Aunts on Monday. That should be fun!! Emily LOVES it! ! Brian's surgery went well... he had it last Monday and fingers crossed gets the plastic tubes in his nose out today. HOPEFULLY!!! Then we can start to know if it's gonna help him enough so he doesn't need the other surgeries or not. Again FINGERS CROSSED!! Let's see... Emily's 2nd grade field trip is to the Philadelphia Art Museum on June 3rd and I've agreed to be a chaperone! Lets hope that goes well too! It's always a little scary when u don't know the temperament of the other children and hoping that the "bad seed" isn't in ur group. I know that sounds bad but it's true!!! I have to find the sheet for when Emily's end of year eval is... I think it's the 25th but I have no idea of the time.... Yikes. I gotta find that paper. ALright I guess I'll go.. can't think of anything else!! have a nice day! =)

You know I just watched Jesse Ventura on Larry King. I was actually pretty impressed with him. I don't know much about him, I have to admit that I thought Minnesota was a bit nuts when the elected him their Governor. I thought here's this wrestler and what does he know about politics, and since I don't live in Minnesota-- I didn't really care to learn about him either. But he said a lot of things that not only do I agree with (which is a plus for why I was impressed) but he also said alot of things about torture and waterboarding that I didnt know but now understand more about. He also thinks that George Bush is the WORST president in his life time. AMEN.. ME TOO! What he said that I thought was the most telling was about he had been waterboarded as part of his navy seals, and that he knows it's TORTURE!! He also said that if he had 1 hour and Dick Cheney he would have Dick confessing to murder!! It doesn't work because people will say anything to have u stop... not necessarily the truth!!! Anyway, He said some other things that were interesting as well, you should check it out---- I found it on MSNBC.com! Talk to u later.
