Wow hard to believe 2011 is a thing of the past now. This year I am hoping for more traveling to far off places, a new job, a car (and all that goes along with that), healthier lifestyle, and really trying to figure out the things I want my future to hold, and working on those things. Sorry no pictures on this post I'm on my IPad and it will not allow me to. Perhaps there is a way for future posts....I'll have to look into that.
This was one of the last pictures I took with Jerry. RIP. You will never be forgotten.
About two weeks ago I got a phone call from Izzy telling me that a friend of our had died early that morning in a car accident. I cried all day and couldn't even talk to anyone with out breaking into tears. The following weekend was the Rosary/viewing, and the Funeral proceedding with the buriel. That was one of the toughest things I have ever had to go through. It was so emotional for both Izzy and I. Death is something you can never prepare yourself for. Jerry had only just turned 33 in December. He had a girlfriend Denise of 13 years. Both Denise and his Mom were a mess at his services. His mom lost her sister just 4 days after Jerry passed away.
The last two weeks I have been thinking a lot about life, death, and the things I take for granted. Life is short and so many people take every second, every breath for granted and I have begun to stop myself when I find myself doing that. I appreciate my boyfriend and everything he does for me and if I find myself getting into routine, and taking him for granted I give him a kiss, or hug, or hold his hand and think of how I would feel if I lost him. (I don't mean that in a morbid way) I have thought about my family and all the wonderful moments we have shared and all the many more moments to come. Each and everyone of my family members flashed through my head and I thought of how thankful and lucky I am to have such a strong, happy, amaizing, couragous, loving family.
I have taken millions of pictures in my life and I am glad I did. People get mad at me sometimes, but that is just too bad. I will never stop. I may NEVER get around to scrapbooking all of them, but they are memories that I can keep when my mind forgets.
Thank you for reading my post I hope by reading this you hug and kiss the ones you love more, you call your friends just to tell them you are thinking of them and that you love them, you forgive those who have done you wrong, never forget the kindness of others, and Live each day as if it were your last.
~**~*No, I do not plan on dying any time soon, just making plans to live life to it's fulllest until it is my time to part this earth and be with the Angels. *~ ** ~
One Sundy Izzy and I went to Redondo Beach Pier to walk around and get out of the house before we started our work week. We found this little Sushi Restraunt tucked back upstairs where there isn't much foot traffic. We had a nice dinner watching the sunset. It was a wonderful day. You know how I lOVE taking pictures...here are a few.
The Hermosa Triathalon! My co-Workers Eddie, Nicole, and I did the RELAY Hermosa Triathalon. Nicole Swam, Eddie Biked, and I ran. It was a really interesting experience. I had a great time doing it! My time running was (3 miles) 30mins and 20sec. our total time for Team Torrance PT was 1hour 22mins and 27seconds. I was SOOOOO happy because I thought i would be more like 40 mins! lol. Well here are some pictures for you to enjoy.
This was the three of us before the madness started! Nicole, Me (Sasha), and Eddie
Izzy woke up early (if you know him you know that NEVER happens) just to come and support me. What a sweet boyfriend!
The starting line...aka MADNESS I TELL YOU!
The Mandatory meeting where I pretty much hear nothing they said! Good times!
Me and Nikki awaiting the arrival of Eddie, so I could take a chip and run!
Me nervously looking for Eddie! Yes mother I had to pee! ha ha ha
Off I go!
This is when I noticed that the last 20 meters were on the Sand....I mean seriously what idiot thought of ending a Triathalon in the sand. I would really like to talk to them!!!
So this is how the end of a competitive 3 mile race is! UGH!!! HELL!
We were all sponsored by Torrance Physical Therapy!
LOL...This is our Muscle picture! "WE DID IT!"
My Stinky faces and Audra came after the race and we hung out the rest of the day!
I currently work 4 days a week 7am - 7pm. This one particular day off I decided I was well overdue for an Adventure on my own. I packed my backpack, busted out the bicycle and rode it to the beach. It took me about an hour and a half to get there. When I did I ditched the bike at the bike lock area and started on foot. My goal was to walk as far as I could on the rocks until there were no more. This is my adventure in Pictures.
A few weekends ago Izzy and I were invited to the circus by Grammy and Grampy. Grampy got a suite through work and so we got to go. It was fun! I had not gone to the Circus since I was a wee little one. I took some pictures. Here they are.
The Elephantes! Grammy Barbara and Shane
Sasha and Izzy
It's a 3 ring circus.
We were all kinda matching Aunt Shell Pink Floral, Me Pink, Aunt Neen Floral Green, Grammy Green.
They had 7 bikes all driving around this Metal ball....can we say CRAZY!
