this girl’s weblog

just me, my thoughts, and experiences.


for history’s sake and the *tradition* we started taking a pic of traffic everytime we return to LA and drive on the 405 south. this is supposed to be a carpool lane, but we are moving slower than all other lanes.


at least its sunny, and we arent in a rush. have been stressed on this road many-a-time heading to a gig!


back in the blog saddle?

what a great weekend already! we’ve been in southern california for a friends bday (happy birthday girl!), and had a total blast last night. so amazing to see such great friends- we miss them. if only we could live in the bay area, but still see LA friends daily- that would rock. maybe the high-speed train will help with that… yea, when is that supposed to be “done”. surely it wont be as fast as californua voters would like.

i have been thinking about blogging more recently and realized i could blog from my iphone with the wordpress app. love it!

wishing you in whatever universe you find yourself in currently, a lovel saturday afternoon. peace, love, and happiness. (no, im not on drugs… just appreciating the good in my life.)

good things come to those who work hard…

i’m excited about some new opportunities at work! looking forward to contributing more to the organization, helping out during a time of transition, and learning!

plastic bags hurt us all

another reminder we shouldn’t forget…

34 mosquito’s

Apparently, someone has enough time on their hands to determine that there are 34 mosquito’s in Sacramento that have the west nile virus. 34.

34 mosquitos, and one bird.

its a monday, again

what a beautiful weekend. had a great time with my folks, although its always a bit tough having company through a Sunday night. there’s just something about having that sunday night to talk with the hubby relax on the couch and just prepare mentally for the work week.

i’m looking at new job opportunities currently and have one that is promising, but i’m so impatient! i want it now. this is a good exercise for me to try and put my head down and do my current job; but be ready to jump when/if i get this next opportunity.

and then there’s finances. man, what a pain. does everyone manage their money well, except my parents? and, they taught me nothing about it so, i’m learning as i go. ugh. any suggestions on good books or formats to follow? i’ve started a budget worksheet that we’ve been using for a few months now, but we’re still living paycheck to paycheck and i totally hate that.
