Countdown to Fun!!

Only 2 more days and my freinds will be here! I'm so excited!!! I"ve got 4 of my bestest freinds: Lisa, Felicia, Melanie and Michele coming to see me. Lisa was my roommate right out of highschool. I have not seen her or Melanie since my son was 4 months old..and now he's 14! Michele and Felicia are sisters..and they are also Lisa's cousins. I was close to them as well...they have have gotten to come out here a few times over the years..michele was just here in January. They have a 'girl's get together' every year..but I am so afraid to fly and to leave my son that I never go. So now they are all coming to me!! It gets pretty lonely being trapped on this I"m so stoked they are coming here!

Now..should I tell them there are TWO hurricanes out there in the pacific and one is scheduled to hit while they are here? One of them, Michelle, has been obsessing about the weather..she told me she didn't want to look online about it anymore cuz it was driving her nuts. So maybe I shouldn't! We haven't had one actually hit since Huricane Iniki..that hit 5 days after I moved here..boy was I freaked! Hopefully these will die out as well. I guess one was only a tropical storm...I think that was called Jova...but it was soon to be a hurricane..and then Kenneth was just a catagory 1 hurricane with sustained 75 mph winds. Not too bad..but one make for good waves..2 of my freinds coming have reserved thier spot for 2 surfing lessons on the south side. eh..maybe I better tell them about the hurricanes!

Needless to say I've been cleaning like a mad woman and not making any jewelry. I strung up a few anklets but have yet to photograph them. I've basically given my house a major spring cleaning..trying to de-cat-hair it because one of the girls is allergic to cats. I have two cats..and one of them sheds so bad.

Now I've just got to finish getting our 80's music together..we plan on doing a lot of reminiscing and that includes a lot of dancing :)

Guess I'm not normal...hope that's a good thing

You Are 35% Normal

(Occasionally Normal)

You sure do march to your own beat...

But you're so weird, people wonder if it's a beat at all

You think on a totally different wavelength

And it's often a chore to get people to understand you

LOL! I kinda figured that was the case..actually I"m happy to be 35% normal at least! I never do feel that people 'get' me :\

Anyways..lots going on lately. I was finally caught up pretty good with the jewelry goal is to have 7 new pieces a week...made, photographed, priced and uploaded to the site. It's not too hard if I can do a couple of pieces some of the days and just one the other days. But I always fall behind.

Now I've got other things I must concentrate's my little sisters 10th anniversary tomorrow! Happy Anniversary Sis! I can't beleive she's been married for that makes me feel old! So my mom's got this big major pasta dinner planned with all sorts of sauces. I"m to make the alfredo's been a while..hope I don't screw it up :\

After tomorrow is over, it's time to concentrate on preparing for my company that will be here on the 18th. I'm super of my bestest friends, Lisa, is coming to see me with 3 more of my real close freinds. I have not seen Lisa since my son was 4 months old. Well we saw each other once when my son was 2, but only for a couple of hours. Can you beleive we both took a trip to our old home town at the same time..but didn't know eachother was there? She had been there a week and so had I..but I found out the night before she had to we spent just a couple of hours visiting. Thats what we got for not keeping in touch good enough. So now this is going to be the best visit ever....and I'm going to pretend I'm a tourist on vacation :) Even though I live here..I don't get the time to really enjoy Maui. I admit I've grown bored with it it will be fun to see it through my freinds will be her first time as well as one of the other girls coming too.

Then in October I will most likely be flying out to the son will go with well as my mom and my sister. We are going to go see my grandmother...she is getting up there and it's hard for her to travel now. I HATE flying and I"m already having anxiety about it. But my grandma did it almost every year to see us and she hates flying I keep telling myself that I can do this. But I so wish there were a road..I don't care if it took a week to get there...I just hate flying :(

Well it's a big day tomorrow so I better get some rest. Especially since I've been up since 5:25 a.m. Got one of those telemarketer calls from the mainland..I hate it when they forget to check time differences! I had a hard time falling back asleep this time... the husband was snoring..and the cat was using me as a spring board...I plan on doing some serious snoring myself tonight! :)

Sweetest little thing!

Just had to share this pic of my friends new 'baby' :) I guess the story goes that someone handed her friends little girl a box and said "hold this for a sec" but they never came back and in it was the sweetest little gray kitten. He was too young to be away from teeth yet, so my freind Jei took him in and has been his mommy ever since. You can see more of little Blue and watch him grow at his very own blog

Crafters Can Help

Creative minds join forces for hurricane Katrina Relief: Crafters United

Also I wanted to share this last week but haven't had the chance:

Baylie for Brains
A sweet little girl and fellow beader..only 6 years old was diagnosed in Feb. 2000 with Chiari Malformation (a rare brain abnormality) and in June 2004 with Pseudotumor Cerebri (high intracranial pressure). She's been beading bracelets to sell to raise money for research on her condition and has gotten literally thousands of orders! They are asking for donations of beads, beaded bracelets or time as they can not keep up with the wonderful response they got. Check out the site..she's such a cutie!
