Perfect Vacation

I sit here and think about my perfect vacation. I think about Hubby and I going away for a weekend/a week, just us. Maybe a cabin in the mountains, or a beach house right near the ocean.

A cabin in the mountains, full deck wrapped around, a hot tub in the corner of the deck overlooking the changing leaves on the trees below. As you walked into the living room/sitting area there would be a big screen tv up above the fireplace, and a jetted tub in the master bath.
I think about the peacefulness, and stress free, breathing clean air with no neighbors, or the sound of cars/trucks screaming down the highway. I picture us enjoying ourselves, shooting pool, or cuddling up to watch a movie, or his arms wrapped around my waist as we watch the sun set in the tree tops.
I can hear the birds chirping in the mornings, and the smell of breakfast drifting into the bedroom early in the mornings.
Sounds like a perfect get-a-way to the mountains to me.

A beach house right at the ocean. You could sit on the porch and watch the waves crash into the sand, you could see the boats in the distance as they disappeared over the horizon.
The salty air feeling your senses as you open the door to dig your freshly painted toes into the warm sand. I could stand there and picture us walking hand in hand into the rising sun after morning breakfast. As we walk down the beach and play in the water, kicking the ocean water onto each other, playing and laughing.
I can picture sitting in a beach chair with an umbrella as I read a book waiting for the sun to almost set. Hubby escaping to the pier for an afternoon of fishing with some locals.

Sometimes as I look back, really my perfect vacations is nothing out of the ordinary, just a normal vacation, but also a break from the little one. Don’t get me wrong I love Jade, but some times Mommy and Daddy needs a date night too.

What would be your perfect Vacation? Is it the “normal” or would you want to go do something wild?

My Dream Come True

My Dream House

Wow, I have been thinking about this one since 2004.

It is a ranch style house with no “dog houses” on top. It has a straight roof, with a full front porch, and a big enough back porch. My yard is landscaped front and back. The back yard is fenced in for the dogs and all the kid toys are out back as well. There is a cedar type shed for hubby’s things, a garage that has a covered walkway to the side door of the house.

Google Image

(it would look like this but a straight roof)

The outside would be either a moss green plank-board, or desert tan vinyl siding. The shutters would be black, as well as the window treatments. The front porch would be painted white. White posts, and a stained porch floor, or placed rock in smooth cement. Black iron thing to go on the columns of the porch to hang flowers from, the driveway would be poured cement lined with flowers on both side, also poured cement coming from the driveway to the front porch steps.

Google Image

The back yard would have a pond with goldfish, and a swing set that would last forever, a tire swing hanging in the shade of a huge tree, and hanging just barely off the ground. There would be a sitting area with a grill with flowers all around for the feel of peace or romance, just whichever mood strike first. The back yard will be up for entertainment and playing as the front yard would be for the hammock laying as you read a great book, or for a quick nap.

Google Image

When you walk into the inside it would be warm and inviting. There would be a double window when you walk in. The L-shape kitchen would be on your left, with an island that you could see from the living room. The flat screen would fit onto the wall so you can watch tv from the kitchen, and it would be an open floor plan. The Dining room would be to your right.
There would be 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths. The laundry room would be right beside the side door to go to the garage (which is a detached). The laundry room would be big enough to fold laundry, and house everything from the hot water heater, to the washing machine, and dryer, with a small sink just in case I might need to rinse off my shoes from being outside. One of the 4 bedrooms would be a type of office/workout room.

The Master bedroom would be big. It would have double french doors and have a walkway to the porch outside. The bathroom would be connected to the bedroom, with just a door separating them. There would be a jetted tub, with a window, the shower would be big enough for two, and it would be made with slate rock. The walk-in closet would be right outside the bathroom, of course one side mine, one said his, haha!

I shall continue dreaming ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe one day this will be my Dream Come True.

Day 27 โ€“ Whatโ€™s the best thing going for you right now?

I have a family who accepts all my ways, even my weird moments,ย  or my “doh” moments that I have (I even have those on here, haha). That is a blessing in itself to have your family beside you.

I am enjoying myself!! I am loosing weight, reaching out to friends, doing things that make ME happy. It sucks being at home all the time, but I have got to find ways to make myself happy during those times or you will go crazy. I have taught myself to be busy ๐Ÿ™‚ Which is a good thing, but not so good if it is above 90 degrees outside haha!

Another great thing right now is the fact that my husband is going to school to further himself at work. I think it is so great, and he is truly amazing. His first time at school, and after his first quarter he made it on the Presidents List at school!!! How great is that!?

Also, Jade is starting to point out letters when we are in public. She gets so excited!! I am so glad she is wanting to learn now, and she is doing so well. It really makes me proud!

Do you have any best things happening right now for you?

~Note~ Sorry I haven’t been commenting a lot. Been going back and forth with doctors and had test run ๐Ÿ˜› But I am okay just taking it easy. I had a tetanus shot in my arm and boy my arm hurts!!! This is going on 2 days and I dont want to move it too much (It feels as though my whole muscle is bruised). Well anyway, I am around, just not doing as much at the moment. Also, if I have forgot to link you up to 30 Days of Truth, please let me know ๐Ÿ˜›

Day 26 โ€“ Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?

Wow, can the questions get any harder? Like really?

I have thought about giving up on my life when I was growing up.
Going through emotions, bullies, rape, molestation, and other things…
I dealt with the pain by myself. I was mostly depressed but tried to hide it behind my smiling face. I went to school, sometimes numb. Talking is what helped me, but others would tell me to keep my mouth shut about what was going in my life, because it wasn’t just my life I was talking about. It involved people that should be there to protect themselves, but at this point, it was me that need saving, and not the people “involved”. Well, on other hands, that girl got a piece of my mind, and we really don’t talk now.. hmm who would have thought that?
I wont tell “how” if I did or didn’t try to do anything to get me out of this world. Everyone thinks I tell all, but I don’t. There is a lot to me that aย  lot of people don’t know, because I rather them see me happy, and remember me always smiling, then someone who was sad, depressed, or confused.

Now, however, I am happy now. It took me 7 years to get here, and a lot of support from my husband, which we too have had our times, but I stuck by him. I never gave up, I kept my love for him, and I am still sticking by today ๐Ÿ™‚ I am not the same girl I was 7-10 years ago. I am a better me and a person who doesn’t just “deal” with it. I have found myself, and I have figured out that if you don’t like something change it. Now I am on God’s hands, and that is what matters.

People need to realize in this world, that they can not walk around thinking it is all about them. What you say to someone today, they might remember that forever.
The Things I Tell Myself:
“God has a path, and a plan for you. You may not know that plan, or path now. It could be that God wants you to be by your friends side through a tragic event, or it could be that God wanted you to hug your friend, because she is fighting a battle inside herself. You may not know what it is that you may be doing, but just know for everything you do there is purpose.”
“Be there for someone, even if they are not there for you, because they might be helping someone else, and it may not be their time to help you, but to help someone else.”
