I can't believe Belle...she was jumping and jumping...very weird she is!!
It's snowing here on and off today. I like the snow, it makes me feel all Christmasy...but not today! The wind is crazy...and that makes me cold...and if I get cold...I don't get warm. I stay cold and shivery the whole day.
I used to have to walk to work in this insane cold. It was -50C that day with the windchill and all I kept trying to think as I was walking against the wind was Hawaii, Florida...anywhere warm.
When your hair turns to icicles its damn cold out.
Well, its not that cold out today...The weather channel says it's only -10C with the windchill...it feels worse than that. I was out waiting for my son's bus earlier and it wasn't coming. It was horrible because all the kids were crying they were so cold. I started hugging the other kids to warm them up. It was so sad...those kids broke my heart!! The bus came about 5 minutes after that!! Thank goodness!
I am way behind on all the awards I have recieved in the last couple of weeks and months but this one warmed my heart. I can't pass it on but I can share it with you all.
I have been having a rough couple of weeks...and this week I have had to deal with a pinched nerve in my hip. As a mom it's funny how nothing can slow you down. While my husband was at home I would just swallow the pain and when he was gone I would weep into a pillow.
But today when I saw this award dedicated to me, it warmed my heart....thanks TeacherJulie!!!
This is what she wrote about me....
Taylor Blue.... tireless, that’s what you are, amazing how you can sustain a number of blogs. You give the WAHM a good name.
So thanks girl...you made my day!!!
I spent a lot of time over at MySpace yesterday...don't know why...LOL....
Well, actually I do...Hee hee...I found Milo Ventimiglia's myspace page...and there he had a blog post about how he got to fly in a F16 (Click to see the clip). He has always wanted to fly in one and finally got the chance. He was going to join the Air Force back in the day but decided to act instead...thank god. If he didn't I wouldn't be able to drool over him every week!!
But it's made me want to tell you my story...actually it's a little like his!! Which is really weird.
I watched Top Gun when I was a kid....it came out when I was like 11. I remember watching it over and over. I loved the sound that the planes made...(and I still do...I hear planes flying everyday...we live in a flight path...sometimes they get so low and our windows start rattling!!!)...but anyways. I really wanted to fly those planes! My dad brought me to air shows and my passion for planes just became worse. So finally in Grade 8 I made the decision, I would join the Air Force and learn how to fly those planes. I talked to my stepuncle who was in the Navy and he said that because I was a girl I would never fly in combat. (That was a LONG time agO!!!) I was mad at that...why would I learn to fly those planes and never get to use them?? So I decided to not go through with it....
I think about sometimes how I should have went through with it...it would be amazing to sit in those planes and fly...fly FAST!!!
My son got some money for his birthday last week...yup...he turned 5 on Monday...yada yada yada. Anyways, that's another story. But we went to Costco and got a really good deal on this track. It came with 15 hot wheels cars and this hot wheel track. Can I say that Hot Wheels has become cheap? The track constantly bends and it just sucks in the whole. I have to listen to this when it doesn't go right....
Do you think I like to see this when my little man gets frustrated .... NO!!! So please...Hot Wheels you are the best company around. Please don't be so cheap anymore.
I have been having problems with my daughter lately. It's becoming pretty crazy here because of it. But everytime I get so angry I have this video to look at! She took my camera from me and taped this herself. She makes me laugh so hard.
She couldn't believe that even I was so mad at her for taking my camera I laughed so hard when I saw this...
Bluefur.com had a contest a long time ago. I totally entered thinking there was no way I could win. But just a week or so ago I got a message that I won! So what I got was a 22 inch LCD widescreen monitor. I already hooked it up! I can't get over how much cooler being on the computer is. Thanks Bluefur!!!
Enjoy the movie I put together of our Halloween. The day was mild too. How lucky were we that we didn't have to put a snowsuit under my son's costume. It would never had fit. He would have looked like the marshmallow man! It seems like Halloween isn't as popular anymore. Since September 11...there hasn't been much. I don't know why?? But we still had lots of fun!!!
I am a Freelance Writer. I am always searching the net to find the next great site that I can find freelance design jobs at. Well, I was surfing around and I found this one...I can put up my profile and have people find me or I can search for a job and put a bid on what I want to work on. This is really helpful because even if I don't have any active bids I can still be called on to work in the freelance design workforce.
Some bloggers are really honest in their blogs. It becomes a different life in here. Something that you love to share. Words can only say so much so what if we could get the chance to know them even better?
Please take a moment to tell my readers about me (I love it when people talk about me)- the Taylor Blue that many of them know only from what I write. Do you good gossip about me? A story to tell? Thoughts to pass on? Also, is there some post that stuck with you long after you left? If so, please leave a comment.
If you would like to do this go ahead. Just be sure to tell me because I would love to tell you what I remember about you...
Thanks Tish for the cool idea....it all started with her....
Now, how about telling my readers all about me?
