I stopped writing on the blog as it started to get to difficult and timing but I had to start up again to talk about my wonderful husbands cooking. He finally gave into my continual pestering him to make fried chicken. He was nervous as it seemed more of a task than it actually was. I must say I was MORE than impressed with his PERFECT first try. The taste, crispiness, and juiciness was something to rave about. In fact that is the sole reason for writing this up. After having leftover chicken the next day for lunch we managed to take a household vote for dinner plans and decided we should have FRIED CHICKEN again. We all have favorite dinners or dishes that Michael makes and I think this fried chicken may kick his Mexican burritos out of first place. Other favorite foods he makes are bbq chicken, steak, pork chops.. Ryan will tell you lasagna is his favorite meal. Ethan says cube steak, green beans, and rice with a close second on his Mexican food.
All I know is I love the way Michael cooks for us and I appreciate him and enjoy his cookin’

In a room full of furniture…I am an accessory that doesn’t get moved much. I am cleaned once in a while. I sit and I am still. The dust settles on me once again. I watch life go in and out in slow motion, unlike the life that is moving quickly by me not stopping to see my colors, the new cracks in me, if I have been polished, and if I should be moved to a better place. I would like to be in the light feeling the warmth on my cold ceramic outer shell. Each day goes by and like a new vase throughout the years soon shines less and less and becomes unnoticed.

Standing up to hug Michael
Dancing with Michael
Going on dates with Michael
Taking my kids to school
Helping out at school
Baking for my family
Going out with my friends
Taking pictures the way I want and not from a wheelchair eye level
Having fun with my kids and sitting on the sidelines in a wheelchair
Typing at a regular speed
Getting up to get something I need
Going to the bathroom when I want
Taking a bath when I want
Walking and not having to be carried everywhere
Organizing the kids rooms
Helping people and not having people have to help me
Getting dressed myself
Going to the bathroom myself
Not feeling well
Not being in pain
Not feeling overwhelmed
Standing up and not having to sit on the couch 16 hours a day feeling like a piece of furniture
Feeling happy and content
Life as it should have been

While going through Martinez at night he sees all the refineries all lit up and telling us how amazing it was that Edison invented the light bulb and there were so many lights to be seen. It was beautifully lit up.. great thought..

Asking about the sun and moon Ryan thought the sun was bigger because it was in the middle of the atmosphere and the moon was farther away.. good thought..

I found this lady who was selling vintage playing cards in a variety of everything imaginable from flowers, to people, mini cards, dragons, and animals. I thought they would be fun to get so Katilin could practice her drawing and have a few fun pictures to try to copy and maybe spark some new ideas to draw. I love the seashell one and the little girl feeding the chicks..
