Tonight we went down to the local children's shelter and donated a bunch of toys, books, and clothes. I want Kiah to learn and understand that there are a lot of children that are less fortunate than us. I know it is hard for someone his age to understand, but I get so tired of him being so materialistic. I want to start doing a different charitable cause each month with him.
Hopefully it will help to conteract some of the hold the advertising industry has on my son.

So in Downtown Willow Glen every December they have horse drawn carriage rides. For years (5 Years to be exact) I have been trying to get Chris to take me there for Christmas. Well this year I thought I was finally get my Christmas wish. After convincing Chris, Mom, Lin, Granny, and Kiah we had to go we made it down there in time to see the last carriage ride arriving back. At least we almost made it. We still had a fun time after Santa claimed we were all naughty including granny and made us all sit on his lap. Chris refused but still let me take a pic.

The last month and a half has been so full of different emotions. My sister Linsey was sick and we were all fearing for the worst. She was basically in kidney failure and there were times when it really looked the worst. She has a very rare genetic disease Ethylmalonic encephalapathy. We thought her symptoms were related to her disease, but it ended up being a different rare disease called Minimal Change. As of right now she is doing good, out of the hospital and in good spirits. I can't believe how your life stands still when someone you love is deathly ill. Now that she is in remission we are trying to make her life as fun as possible. Love you Lin!!

It was our 12th Anniversary of being together. Go figure, one of these years we will get married. We went to the Big Foot museum that Chris had been wanting to visit and then I got to go to any thrift store I wanted. I didn't find anything special but we did have hot chocolate on the pier. Which in it's self sounds totally romantic, but when you add the element of fishing to it, it kinda changes things. None the less we are still in deeply love with each other and cherish these crazy moments we call life.

We went to the Branham High Flea Market on Saturday. Chris and I had never been there and we just barely made it there before it closed. It was hot as hell and Kiah kept bugging me for video games. Which he knows I'll never buy them from a flea market or garage sale. You know they won't work. In the short time we were there I managed to find some really cool treasures and only spent $3.00 on them. Quite a few items were free so that was a double score. Next time around I might try to get a space to sell some stuff. I am tired of giving everything to Goodwill, only to have them mark it way up. We'll see how that works I'll probably buy more than I sell.

I can't believe it is already July 22nd. This month has left me exhausted and it is not even over yet. We went up to Orleans, Ca in the beginning of the month.
As soon as we got home my Grandmother who has dementia wondered and was brought home by a sheriff.
Since then everthing is just a blur of social workers, daycare kids, karate, swim lessons, and phone calls.
And to top it all off I have lost my mojo and have't been able to produce something worthy in almost a month.
