I have nothing to hide...I am me and nothing more....

I don't edit myself, nor do I hide my inner silliness.  Life is meant for random outburst of off pitch song and dance.  Causing a smile and warming a heart is worth all the silliness and openness I express.  I'm not afraid to play the fool for entertainments sake...I love making people laugh.  It's funny because my mom couldn't believe I posted my orthodontist picture on my FB page.  Ummmm....she knows me, and knows I'm an open book.  I think it's funny and I love to shock people.  It's funny so I had to share.  Life is about those funny silly moments and esp those moments you wish you had snapped a picture to cement that image in time.  So with that all being said....I gladly play the court jester or juggling fool to entertain....life is too serious enough...bring on the parade....

I'm debating on taking on another job.  I called the guy today and am waiting to hear back from him. We spoke briefly over email.  He liked my work.  It's not my usual pay, only $15 an hour, but it's easy steady work.  This rug place is hiring and needs someone to photograph their selection.  They have 10,000 rugs to photograph.  So this could be a gig for awhile.  Not sure how long that would take, I'm sure their is some mathematical equation I could plug in here and pop out a projected time frame, but unfortunately my math skills fall short and if there isn't an app on my phone for it....I simply leave it at that. Ha!  This deal all rests on if I can make my own hours and my hours are after Eric gets off from work.  So we shall see.

I worked out twice yesterday...go me go me...happy dance inserted here.  Sadly, I watched hoarders and glee while working out.  Glee was good for the treadmill, but hoarders kept making me slow down trying to here what the people were saying.  I swear I love those type of shows.  I'm not allowed to watch intervention anymore, makes me cry too much.

I have a HUGE bleeding heart, it  can be annoying at times.  But I have a plan.  I want to work on collecting xmas gifts at my sons elementary school this year.  I know there are a few families that are struggling.  I want to collect wish lists from the kids and then have local churches and my son's cub scout/boy scout group buy the toys for the kids.  I think every child deserves a magical childhood.  That's why I always go over board for parties at my sons school.  You never know what the home life is like for these kids.  With the economy how it is and how hard up families are these poor kids may not have that much sparkle in their lives.  I went over board for their Halloween party.  But they LOVED it!  I talked with my friend about this and she shared that in her sons class there was a boy who's family was living in a shelter.  You would never think that where we live and where the school is located you would have a child living in a shelter.  That is my whole thought process, you NEVER know.  The little boy was so excited over their class party.  It broke my heart to hear her tell me how excited he was and how thankful he was.  It takes just one moment for an adult to make a difference in a child's life.  Yes, the real world sucks, and yes it's a mean cold world, but there is no reason a child struggling through the harsh realities of this world does not get to experience a little happiness and warmth for a moment in their childhood.   So with all that being said I have to meet with the PTA president and see what I have to do to make this plan happen.

Ok....off to work out I go.  The baby is down for a nap.  8 more pounds and I will be at my goal weight!!!

Aaaawwww I'm not a kids person, but this blog just got me all tear eye... That's a great thing ur doing for these kids and yes this is a mean cold world and for you doing that you are being a bigger and better person. When you collect these wish list, make a post, perhaps someone will help with the purchase of toys and have them delivered there. I know I would... :-)
