CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You're not living in Iraq or Sudan or the
Congo, and you don't have to walk five miles a day with a jug on your
head to fetch the water you need, and you're not so bereft of food that
you have to resort to eating worms and tree bark. So how bad could your
problems be? The single best thing you can do to start fixing your life's
small glitches is to feel waves of gratitude for how many resources you
have and how lucky you are. The second best thing would be to
aggressively take your worried attention off yourself and turn your mind
toward people who could really benefit from your help. As you carry out
those two assignments, your dilemmas will begin to solve themselves as if
by magic.

i love this picture of carson. ok--spring semesester is over and what is that sound? oh yeah, that's the sound of me groaning because summer school has already started. shoot me now.

but i do have a cool horoscope for today.

Your horoscope for May 15, 2010
Enjoy yourself, lisa. You have a great deal to be grateful for, so give thanks. Take pride in all that you have accomplished so far, and share your joy with others. Feel free to let go of the reins and sit back comfortably for a while. You have worked hard for a reason: to enjoy life. If you don't do it now, then when? Take time out and be with loved ones tonight.

I actually did enjoy tonight with loved ones. Dallas, Taylor and I watched the first two episodes of 'Heroes.' I am not a big tv person, nor do i have time for much tv. so i hate dallas for introducing me to a show that has piqued my interest. of course right after watching it we learned that it just got cancelled. so i will only have to watch 4 seasons. and to be truthful i'm going to watch it because of Sendhil Ramamurthy. that man is hot.

i am going out tomorrow night with friends too. some much needed relaxation is on its way...L

this is how i spent my mother's day for the most part. Having fun making some scrapbook pictures. I know, I could have done other, more important things like homework, but this was much more fun. I got some nice gifts from my children, some homemade cards and lots of love. Plus an incredible italian dinner cooked by dallas. I love being a mom. It's exhausting for sure, but i am grateful for all my lovely children and the happiness they bring in my life...L

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

— Marjorie Pay Hinckley

happy mother's day to all my wonderful girlfriends, mother's or not, you add to my life as well as your families and I wouldn't know what to do without your love and support...L

happy sabbath and horoscope for today:

Take time out today to change the things in your life that need restoring, lisa. Explore your emotional needs and find ways to satisfy them. You may need to adopt a radically different approach in order to get where you need to go. Even if things seem unstable at first, they are likely to smooth out and be much more dependable in the long run. Be an individual instead of just another cookie from the cutter.

Definitely there are things that need restoring in my life. I'm officially divorced now. I haven't done a lot of things specifically just for me in a long time. I have mainly focused on my children and my education. While I won't quit focusing on those I do need to take care of myself as well.

Dallas is home! Sweet happy day. He is busy getting enrolled at ASU and finding a job. The girls and I are loving having him here. He's a tremendous help and a ton of fun. I'm hoping he can endure the copious amounts of estrogen floating around this house.

OK--so at the girl's elementary school every friday they have some jamba juice and other fun things to buy extra at lunch time. Haley asks for $2 because that is what jamba juice costs. Last friday she asked me for $4 because she also wanted popcorn. I gave it to her and a couple of minutes went by and Anna says--why do you need $2 for popcorn? It only costs .50 cents. busted. Haley got this funny grin on her face and needless to say she didn't get $4. something is telling me my sweet innocent baby is growing up. shoot me now...L
