Alrighty! My channel is a go. I decided to go ahead and do "Vlogust" and so far so good! I'm loving what I am doing. I finally feel like I found a hobby to keep myself occupied and now I don't get all stir crazy. I'm still learning my way. I cannot wait until I can get some better filming equipment, but that will have to wait a little bit. I'm just trying to come up with some ideas for vlogs.

Also, I'm trying to figure out how to get my name out there. I'm hoping to turn this more into a profession. I know that that involves a lot of work, but I feel like I found something that I am good at. I want to keep my channel light and airy. Nothing too serious. I mean if you know me in person you know that for the most part I am a goofy person. I just want to laugh and love and have fun. Most of all I want to make people happy. If one person smiles when they watch one of my vlogs then I feel I've done my job.

I was thinking of doing mostly reviews of TV shows and products and especially make up.  I was then thinking "How can I separate myself from the pack?" By doing what comes naturally to me of course! Making a total ass out of myself. I stopped doing theater and still feel the need to perform in front of an audience. So I was thinking and I have a few things up my sleeve. I guess you'll just have to stay tuned. In the meantime check out my channel.

Onward and upward!

Long time no blog

Hello! I realize a lot has happened since I last blogged. I love blogging and need to make more time to do it. The real reason I am writing is because I am giving some serious thought to starting my own YouTube channel. I haven't done it yet because I am nervous about all the trolls on there posting mean comments since that seems to be a problem. I don't understand trolling and I don't like it. Now, I love make up and all but I am by no means a "make up guru". I would leave that for my BFF to cover if he ever did his own channel. The other reason I haven't started yet is because I haven't a clue how to do it. I have to figure out the video editing and all that jazz. Sometimes I watch channels and I think "If they can do it then so can I!" Then I look at the program installed in my computer and I'm like "Um...maybe not."

So what will my channel be about. Well what I know about. TV! I figured since I am an avid television watcher I might as well put it to use. I know that on Fridays I would like to do a weekly review of "General Hospital" since I have been watching that show since I was born. No, I am not exaggerating. My Mom put me on the couch next to her the day she brought me home from the hospital and had me watch it with her and I've been watching it ever since.

I would include some non-television show stuff like some of the other "housewife" vlogs. Product reviews, day in a life type of stuff and of course lots about my babies.

Now I'm not sure when I will begin this whole process because I am still up in the air as to whether or not I will actually do it. Like I said I'm not sure how I would be able to handle the mean comments. Maybe I will luck out and no mean people will watch my channel. We'll see. I guess until then stay tuned!

As always
Onward and upward!

Well hello there! How are you? How's your job? Wonderful! What's new with me? Well I finally did it. I moved to Seattle. A life long dream finally achieved. Do I like it? No. I LOVE IT! I really miss my friends. However, Facebook makes it a little easier to be so far from home.

So here we are, 3000 miles away from our old home. Changes are being made and I'm loving every minute of it. After years of just saying, we're doing. Today we went and hiked around Tradition Lake. It's amazing how getting out there in the fresh air really invigorates you! Granted, this isn't new news. It just felt good to be out in nature and enjoying the beauty of it all.

I will say I miss our garden terribly. It's only temporary until we buy a house. I sure do miss waking up and walking into our garden and picking the fixings to make a salad for dinner that night. In time I will get that back, but for right now I am working on building an army of potted plants. I will plant some herbs and tomatoes. Hopefully this will satisfy my need to garden. Since we are coming up on berry season I plan on trying my hand at making jam. I'm becoming even more domesticated since moving out here. I want to learn how to crochet! When I do...Afghans for everyone!

My little Lex will be THREE in a little less than two months. Time sure does go by fast. Although I feel like I can recall everyday since he was born. We went to our first parents meeting for his preschool this past week. I had a friend who told me to make sure you get onto any parent board you can. So I did. I am now the new Treasure for the Issaquah Co-op Preschool 3's Class. Not only will I be working as a treasurer, but I will be working in the classroom at least two days a month.

I really love the idea of this because I want to be a teacher. I figure this will help me get a better idea of what teaching will be like. There is a LOT of work involved at a Co-op preschool. I am interested to see if this is going to be overwhelming or if I am thinking that it is more work then it really is. The previous treasurer said that it really is all about being organized and that being a treasurer actually helped her redo her household budget. And who couldn't use that?

I'm happy. I'm loving our new place. I'm loving cleaning it and making it all nice and cozy. It's a little weird having David working here at home. I'm sure that if he ever were to work at an office I would miss having him home. It's wonderful that he gets to see the babies so often. He just comes out to get a refill of water or something and gets to see the kids. Turtle is attached to his daddy and even though he sees him through out the day, he still has a meltdown when ever David leaves the apartment.

Life's great out here in the Pacific Northwest. I highly recommend coming out here. And if you do, look me up and we'll get a coffee.

Onwards and upwards!

Country mouse?

Oh I get it....I know what my problem is. I hate living in the suburbs. Time to move to the city. I'm no country mouse.

My babies

I know most parents think this, but I have to say there's something magical about my children. Maybe it's the innocence in their eyes or their smile when they look at me. I just feel like they are here to do good. Like their so purpose in life is to make the world a better place. People seem to fall in love with them and not in that fake "we have to pretend we like them" way, but an honestly become smitten with them.

I love my children and am so blessed to have them. I never liked kids and wasn't dying to have any. David and I had discussed having kids but it was a if it happens it happens kind of mentality. It's a lot of work having kids. People say that and it's one of those things that you kind just say "Yeah yeah hard can it really be?" I had no idea! They are a handful.

Especially Lex because he's two and mobile. Lucy however is really attached to me for some reason. I have to be in her line of sight or else she freaks out. I ran out to pick up dinner for us the other week and when I came home David said that he just calmed her down because she frreaked out as soon as I left. She's giving him a complex. I think she's just a "mommy's girl". I love being a wife and a mom. If anyone had told me what I was in for even six years ago, I would've said you're crazy! I had no idea my life would change so drastically. I guess to put it a different way, I feel like my life started.

I don't want you to get me wrong. I'm not one of those women who is more in love with their children then they are their own husband. My identity isn't as David's wife or Lex and Lucy's mother. I am still me. I still want to be social away from my family. I am thinking of my future which is why I've gone back to school. I've decided that I will continue on to Law School after I complete my degree. I would just say marrying David and having our babies has made me more dimensional. I'm not as superficial as I used to be. However I still judge people by their shoes.

Political rant

As I have said many times I am a republican. Card carrying member since 1998. Even before then I was a republican. I was born into a family of republicans. I am a Marine Brat whose father worked at HMX and got the honor of serving the last good President we had Ronald Reagan.

I don't always agree with my party, Michelle Bachmann annoys me. I really don't like Sarah Palin. I don't agree with my parties views on same sex marriage. Someone give me a reason why gay people shouldn't get married that does not involve the "Bibles" definition. I do think that the health care industry needs an overhaul. I'm for the right to own a gun. Why? There are bad guys everywhere. You're telling me that if you get guns out of homes that the bad guys aren't going to get them elsewhere? You are delusional. Especially since the economy is so bad that in some towns they can't afford to have a fully staffed police department. You bet your sweet behind I am going to have a gun to protect my babies. Anyone breaks into my house and endangers my family will be shot.

I am also pro-life. That is as far as I willing to talk about it. I once saw someone post something along the lines of "if you are pro-life you are only kidding yourself. You are anti-choice." I will resist the urge to punch that person in the face next time I see them. That would be as ridiculous as me posting "If you are pro-choice you are only kidding yourself. You are pro-death."

I also think that it is ridiculous that they want to raise the taxes on the wealthy. Why? I mean seriously why? They earned that money and they do pay taxes. There is this stupid posting put out by Elizabeth Warren. Yes, the rich didn't get rich on their own. But you know what? They still pay taxes. You want to raise taxes for corporations? Guess what will happen? That's right more jobs will be sent overseas. Why? Because the labor is cheaper and they won't have to pay taxes. So how will this fix the economy? Oh that's right it won't. I'm not going to give the knee jerk response that most conservatives would and call her a communist. I will instead just say I strongly disagree with her.

You want to fix the economy and bring down the unemployment rate? How about you give the big corporations more tax breaks as an incentive to bring the jobs back to America! Duh.

I find it amusing that all these politicians are vilifying the wealthy when they themselves are richer then I will probably ever be. I personally think it's a joke. Talk to me about raising the taxes on the wealthy when a.) They stop giving themselves pay raises that they clearly don't deserve b.) get the spending under control and c.) All of them stop pointing fingers and blaming the other party. They are all idiots and remember what they say about pointing a finger...there's always three pointing back.

I don't know a lot about politics. I don't like to hear other peoples opinions. I know I'm contradicting myself by writing a post about it but at least you have the option to not come read my blog. I will simply end this post with a quote from Reagan.

"Government's first duty is to protect the people, not run their lives."
Ronald Reagan

My hump my hump

I wish my butt was back up where it used to be. It moved to Miami when I wasn't looking.
