Awesome April

Oh Bloggy Blog I didn’t forget you, not even a little bit.  April has just been a busy month at work (and at play) that by the time I’ve gotten home at night the last thing I’ve wanted to do is get on the computer and type.  Getting on my iPhone and checking FaceBook is entirely different.

So what has happened in April that has kept me busy, out of (or into) trouble, and has me counting my blessings? All kinds of stuff:

·         Spending Easter with my mom’s family and getting to listen to my 10 year old cousin rock the house on his piano. He’s crazy good.

·         Springtime Concerts with my brother Frank. We saw DIERKS BENTLEY at the Pozo Saloon and a few other acts. Will Hoge has changed my life, okay that’s exaggerating a bit, but I really like him and I would have never heard of him had I not gone to the Stampede. So that’s one thing I can scratch off my New Year’s Resolution list. I wanted to find new music to fall in love with, and I did exactly that.

·         Crashing Bridal Fairs with Meggy, it’s like the pregame to Wedding Crashing.  Baby steps, baby steps.

·         Cousins’ Weekends in Los Angeles (and minimal traffic on the way down).  I got to escape reality for a couple days and go visit Walter and Jake for the weekend, experienced red velvet pancakes, and then my buddy Tess crashed the party in Long Beach for a little girl time after the boys left to other engagements.

·         New Gadgets, I was able to get my hands on a Kindle Fire last week and I don’t think my reading list or library will ever be the same.  I love technology.

·         Shopping days with mom.  Nothing beats Mother/Daughter dates, even at nearly 31 its still one of my favorite ways to spend the day

·         Discovering my own strength.  I finally found it in me to purge some people in my life who were nothing but cancerous tumors on my soul.  I stopped making excuses for them and I stopped allowing myself to torture my heart by trying to keep them in my life.  I have to say my shoulders are lighter, my eyes are drier, and the bruises on my heart are healing nicely.

·         My job. I really like the people I work with (most of the time ;-) ) Plus on Administrative Professionals Day, they bought me flowers, candy, and a Starbucks gift card. They sure know how to make a girl feel loved.

There you have it April in a nutshell. Talk to you next month (or sooner if I get inspired)
