Happy Birthday Andy

Well I am finally getting a quiet moment (as long as Andy stays asleep) to post about Andy's birthday. It is so amazing to think it has been a whole year with my little Angel. I started thinking at 9:15 am on the 15th about my water breaking, then throughout the day I was thinking "we were at the hospital" Tony was going to get Chinese food, I was asking for the anesthesiologist---again. When I went to bed on the 15th I thought "man this thing was still going" I woke up on the 16th and thought "I can't believe it is still going on this long" Into the morning I kept thinking "4 hours", "2 hours" and "I was pushing at this time" All of the sudden it was 11:41 am & he was officially 1 year old. Then Tony & I were remembering the first day in the hospital, taking him home & so on. What a crazy ride.

About Andy's Birthday party. First I have to thank my sister & family for their gift. They sent Andy money so we could party hardy. I also picked out a Barney doll with the money, and he loves it since he is such a Barney freak! On Thursday (his actual) we visited Chuck E. Cheese to see the show & play around a little-loved it-not scared of Chuck E!

On Saturday we had a few of Andy's friends over to party-for all those inquiring minds out there-YES we had pizza-Thanks Sis

Warning-BIG Soapbox

I don't usually rant (on my blog-at least) Of course those who know me well, know I can rant with the best of them. I am in sales after all. So, today I shall rant. Oh! Oh! where do I start. I fume so bad sometimes my mind is all a scramble. I guess it starts with Earth Day-what the hell is this??? One day a year to be good to planet Earth? Shut up I say- why practice one day-what is THAT going to do? Just let the world go to hell one more day a year.
Lets go back to high school when I was in the Ecology club or that short stint in college where I had declared Ecology as my major (until I was knee high in some backwoods swamp with spiders the size of dinner plates & snakes swimming by) Ok, how about Interior Design-ahhh better. I have practiced saving the Earth everyday since way back. I recycle everything, turn off lights, stop drafts, blah, blah, blah. But I guess I get steamed about Earth Day the way my husband gets steamed about Valentines Day. We are forced to do something. Not because you want to save the planet, not because you want your child to drink clean water in the future. Not because you don't want your grandchildren to be born with 3 eyes & a horn; because it is trendy. YOU SUCK. I think using more paper & ink & gas to deliver these stupid advertisements for Earth Day has done far more harm than good. Everywhere I looked today I saw some new crap for Earth Day. How about Reduce-not produce more crap (no we need new logos & slogans on those ads). How about reuse this crap next year (no we will need a new message & flashier sh*t). How about Recycle (too hard-easier to throw them in the trash). YOU SUCK TOO! Earth Day has become one more trendy holiday to get people to buy crap they probably will not reuse or recycle. I have an idea...take your family to a nature preserve, a state or national park, show them what this Earth truly has to offer & why we need to protect it; each day, each minute & each second. Might I suggest the Hillsborough River State Park, beautiful hiking, canoing, birdwatching & the clean clear sounds of nature. Hopefully sans the spiders & snakes. I can't wait to read the comments on this one. Happy Earth Day!

Quick update

Had a great time last Saturday at my friend Cami's new house (which is beautiful)for some much needed scrapbooking. I got to hang out with the greatest friends one can ask for-thanks guys-love ya!

I have found myself a new job. I will start around the end of April/First of May at an apartment complex, helping people find their new home. Sad to be leaving Andy-as Forrest Gump would say-"That's all I have to say about that"-

We went to the YMCA's Brunch with bunny here is the greatest little pic
