CATCH UP - Days 11, 12, & 13

DAY 11 - Another photo of you and your friends. (See the last post about me and my friends - I used all of the good pictures I have of us in that post. It's tough getting "picture time" in considering I see them only once, MAYBE twice, a year.)

Day 12 - How I found out about blogger and why I made one. A friend of mine here in Italy, Melissa Long, told me about blogger. I had visited her blog and decided "What the heck? Why not?" and made my own. Come to find out quite a few ladies I know here have one. Also, I guess it's something to do when I'm bored (being at home all day, that can happen sometimes) OR to post my latest pictures for people to see.

Day 13 - A letter to someone who has hurt me recently. Hmm. They know all of the words in my heart that need to be said to them and it would be a waste to write it out - 1) It's personal & 2) They can barely navigate e-mail, much less find my blog.

Day 10- Songs you listen to when you are Happy, Sad, Bored, Hyped, Mad

Songs I listen to depending on my mood... Huh. Well, I ALWAYS have my stereo going while at home or in the car, & the song playing doesn't always depend on my mood. If it were to depend on the mood...

HAPPY - Any "rowdy", not "sappy" country song, not too heavy of rock, hip-hop/rap - Happy songs..duh!

SAD - People that don't listen to country music have it in their head that ALL country songs are sappy and sad. Well, you're wrong. They're not. When I'm sad I'm usually listening to a SAD country song or any other genre that the tone is low and slow and the words are touching or sad.

BORED - EVERYTHING! Artists A-Z, Songs A-Z

HYPED - Usually a good hip-hop song you can dance too

MAD - Definitely heavy rock

Day 09- Something I Am Proud of In The Past Few Days

Something I am proud of in the past few days. Hmm...There's a few, so I'll share ALL ;o)

Pride #1 - Aidan feeds himself with utensils out of his own dish now! He's been doing it for a while, but I think I've forgotten to mention it.

Pride #2 - I made an AWESOME "thrown-together" Cajun Chicken-Three Cheese Tortellini last week! It ROCKED Aaron's taste buds so I added it to my arsenal! ;o)

Pride #3 - I found out today that my older sister Morgan is giving me yet ANOTHER nephew! I'm feeling an "all-boys" generation coming, considering my older sister Tara had a boy, I had a boy, now Morgan is having a boy... LOVE IT!

Pride #4 - I've caught myself "biting my tongue" in LOTS of situations lately - Online, in public, on the phone... For me, that's good!

Pride #5 - I started my "photography", AGAIN, and was very proud to come out with some almost professional looking photos last week!

Pride #6 - I FINALLY got ONE room of my house swept AND mopped this morning! YES! GO ME!

Okay, that's enough for now!

Ciao, Ciao!

Day 08- Short Term Goals/Plans I have For This Month

Cutting to the chase!

My "short term" goals for this month:

1-Get my Fall/Winter cleaning DONE!
2-Do a rain dance to make the rain go away.
3- Wash my mouth out with soap! I think I'll just teach myself to talk like a lady, soap will come in the picture if I don't do such a great job at it.
4- Get back on the camera.

Back To "30 Days of Me" - Day 07 - Something or Someone Who Has The Biggest Impact On Your Life

Someone who has the biggest impact on my life. Well, that's easy! He poops & pees himself, eats his food with his hands, plays in the garbage cans, throws things in the toilet, pushes ALL buttons (appliance buttons, that is), he has little - no hair, he cries when he doesn't get his way or gets in trouble, he sleeps with a night-light...Shall I continue?

The person who has the biggest impact on my life is DEFINITELY my son, Aidan Scott, who is close to 16 months old. NOT that I was a "wild-child" before Aidan, but the ways I did act, he changed them COMPLETELY, long before I knew he was a "he". Everything I do, say, or even think about, a picture of Aidan pops into my head. No matter what I do, it'll always be in favor of what's in the best interest for him.

Of course there are plenty of others who have an impact on me, but i felt Aidan has been the biggest yet. <3

(I'm not TOO much of a writer because I seem to "babble" so I'm cuttin' it off here.) ;o)

Day 06 - "Favorite Super Hero & Why"

My favorite super hero - I don't have a favorite "super hero", but I can tell you a little about my hero.

My hero is an 80+ year old man, married to a beautiful & strong hearted woman. They live in a small TX town, where I spent part of my growing up days at. This man has seen it ALL, and has been through it all. From the great depression, to serving his time at Pearl Harbor the day it was bombed by the Japs, to living in Kuwait for "umpteen" years, to seeing 8 grand children & 2 great-grandchildren enter this world, after having a FULL knee replacement in his 70's - well, you get my point. He's done it all!

My hero and his wife have been there for EVERY single one of their kids & grandkids, and held their hands when they needed him to. He is the first to be at your side when you call and need help with something, ANYTHING for that matter.

My hero can fix ANYTHING! From a toy car to an actual car & anything in between!

For kids, he's a best friend. He'll let you drive his lawn mower & tractor around his 10 acres, scratch your back when you want him to, buy you anything with just a sweet, innocent smile :0) & play board games with you until 1 AM!

I could talk about my hero for HOURS, DAYS, YEARS, because that's how great of a man, husband, father, Grandad, Great-Grandad, friend...that's how awesome my Hero is.

My hero is my Grandad, Raymond Donald Hull - "Buddy"

I love this man more than any other man walking this earth right now & would be very lost without him.
*(Please don't confuse this with not loving my husband and son, because I do, and of course they are heroes in my eyes, as well.)

Day 05 - "A Picture of Somewhere I Have Been To"

 Somewhere I have Been: Well, since I live in Italy, I seem to get to just hop on a train and head to major tourist attractions. (Top 2 photos - Verona, Italia - A statue of Giulietta (Juliet) - It's said that if you grope her, it brings good luck. The second photo is of her balcony.
The third photo is of me in Venice.
Venice, Italy (Venezia, Italia as they say here) has ALWAYS been at the top of my list of places to travel to since I was a little girl. And BAM! One day I was told I get to move there! :0) I LOVE IT! The food = AMAZING, the views are priceless, the water is stinky lol, the Gondola's are expensive, but it is well worth visiting! 

Verona is a very beautiful city to visit. The only thing we have found to do there is eat, shop at expensive stores, and visit Giulietta's Garden, which is the only reason why I go.
