Things are tough for most people. I get that.

Things are tougher for most people. I get that too.

Sometimes I want to be selfish and only think about my hard times.

This means thinking about my future.

I have my bachelors in Liberal Studies. I wanted to be a teacher.

Do I still?

Not really.

I want to go back to school. For what?

I have no idea.

Do I go with my first major? Business with a focus on Accounting

Or do I go with one that means I would still work with kids? Speech Pathologist.

I have been contemplating this a while.

Do I go for the one that is the most sought out, or the one that means I am still helping youth?

This is a decision I must make on my own.

A lifetime of awareness

This week on facebook you have either noticed and/or changed your picture to a cartoon figure(s) that you grew up watching and loved.

This is to spread awareness for child abuse. At first I thought people wouldn't think of this as an awareness but as a way to jump on any band wagon.

Last night I was looking at all the cartoons from before my time to now. The only thing I was thinking? Innocence.

When children are abused that is what's taken. Every time a child is beaten, belittled, or even scarred in any way we take away their youth and add fear.

This makes me angry, because giving life to a human being is a privilege. These are minds we mold into adults. Every child has the right to to be brought up by mature adults who embrace their innocence and helps them grow into the people we want them to become.

By that I don't mean what we want, but the hopes and dreams they clutch to as children.

Remember to embrace innocence and not just until December 6th, but always!

Toys R Us nailed it when they coined the phrase "I never want to grow up"

Conversations that make you go Hmmm...

Why do I love being a parent?

Because of the awesome conversations and/or phrases I get to hear come out of my Chick's mouths.

Last night while in the car, Chick 2 asked if it hurt when I had her.

I told her, "Oh yeah"

She then asks, "Does it hurt like when you have to poop but can't?"

I tell her, "It hurts a lot more than that"

Rooster then explains, "It's like trying to poop out a watermelon"

Baby Chick is in the stage of learning and repeating new words on a daily basis. Of course some words don't sound quite like the real thing.

While playing with her one day she says, "My horse is pissing"

I think I almost pissed myself when I heard this.

Then I realized what that truly meant...

"My horse is missing"

Oh and yes missing is still pissing in her vocabulary.

Aloha Friday #6

It is Aloha Friday once again! This means today is a day for taking it easy, therefore I will just ask one simple question. Click the picture to learn more.

Today's question:

Do you think you could survive without technology for a week?

Honestly, I would love to say oh yes just give me a book to read or supplies to make jewelry and I am set. However, I know I would go crazy without my phone, or computer. Just the thought makes me break out in a cold sweat! I know there are people out there a lot stronger than I am and to that I have mad R-E-S-P-E-C-T!

Monkey hear, Monkey say

We have officially entered the stage where what we say can and will be used against us.

That's right... baby chick has finally entered the repeat everything stage.

I am the winner in this area, because this momma chick; who is known for having a potty mouth; has taught her little chick a few not so cute phrases.

"Oh crap"
"Darn it"
"That sucks"

At least they are more PG-13 right? No rated R words thank goodness.

Rooster is the winner for more positive phrases learned:


Is it wrong that I still giggle when she says, "oh crap" just so she says it again?

Come on it's funny right?

The dreaded topic...

That topic would be death.

It is unfortunately going to happen.

The only thing keeping us from dying is the fountain of youth and finding it is a must for that to work.

To prepare for death *shudder* we have Wills in order to get our finances and burial requests in order.

Now what happens to our networking sites like Facebook? Do they get deleted? Do they stay in order for people to post well wishes?

There is now a site that takes care of this, This site allows you to name an heir to your Facebook page.

Go to to learn how to get your Facebook taken care of.

At first I thought it was a little morbid. I mean name an heir to my Facebook?

I mean I won't be able to see it once I'm gone.

However, when reading what the site has I thought it would be nice to know that people would have a page to do the following:

  • A Life Status Indicator on your Facebook profile

  • Real-time death notification to all connections

  • Dedicated tribute page with memorial service, donation information and guestbook
It is hard to think about our untimely death, but it's always better to be ready for the unknown!
