Feeling a little mediocre these days...

The last few months I really feel like my postings haven't been as creative and interesting as they used to.  I've been in a funk and although I have still been blogging,  I'll be honest, I haven't been putting much effort into them.  Part of it is lack of time, the other part is lack of creativity.  I just haven't had the desire to spend a lot of time into my posts. 

I hate being in this funk bc I now I am more creative than this. And for those that know me personally, I usually have more things to say.  Lately, I have just been taking things all in and minding my own business....within reason of course ;-O

We've been turning new leafs in the Delima residence.  We've all set new goals and we are working really hard to achieve them.  I'm going to be honest, its not easy with some of them, but we are committed and all working together.  I've still been decluterring my house due to some of the changes.  Between yard sales and putting things on craigslist, I've really gotten rid of a ton of stuff. (Don't get me wrong, I still have a lot more to off load, one pile at a time.)

I've been excited about some things I have been working on at work.  Hmmmm.....maybe that's where I have been focusing all my creativity at??!?!?  I am currently working on some huge marketing events which absorb all of my time there.  One event is a golf tournament at the Broad Bay Golf Course.  We are teamed up with the great folks at the Susan G. Komen Foundation and all proceeds go to the cause.  Its huge!! We have had so much support from the community. All of our sponsorships filled faster than we anticipated.  Its on Sept. 2nd, so for those of you that are local, look for us on the news that day.  Another event I am working on is a movie themed event I entered us in.  It's at a large marketing function and we had to pick a movie that coinsides with our type of business and decorate our booth.  We chose Ghostbusters.  I'll tell you all about another time and maybe I'll even post up some picks.  I will say this....it will def. be a show for all!  Lol.

Well, its time for me to head to bed.  It's been a long day and I am tuckered out.  Sweet dreams all.

Yummy Sweet Potatoes

Over the weekend I finally started Emma on baby food.  We did the rice cereal introduction and Emma gave me the official surprised what.is.that? kinda look.  She's been doing well with eating.  Its no different than when we started Alexi on baby food; about 25% of it would end up in her mouth and the rest of it would be on me or her. Lol

Well 3 days ago we started her on sweet potatoes. Boy does she love them!!!   And so does her face apparently:
And just for the record, this is from when Fred was feeding her ;-)

I want some!!!

I don't know about you all, but I could really go for one or two or five three of these right now!!

Thanks to Rachel at Cupcakes Take The Cake, I will dreaming of these while I eat my ham sandwich for lunch.   Mmmmmmm

Now she is not responsible for this chocolate and cherry cordial bliss.  She is simply passing on the yummy goodness for this savvy cupcake company. WHOM.BY.THE.WAY ships by the dozen.....in Australia :-(  I wonder if they would make an exception for me? HHHMMMMM???  {The wheels are turning}

Monday Funday

Between yard-saling and being sick over the weekend, there wasn't a lot of time to have much fun.  We did have a good friend over for dinner Sat. night.  Its been a while since we've seen him and it was nice just sitting back and chilling out.

I had a yard sale on Sat. for a few hours.  I can't complain; I made just over $70.  Not too bad, right?  Well its gone already.  Yup, I ended up using it all when I went food shopping.  I didn't need it for food shopping, it was just nice not to have to spend $$$ out of the bank acct. for once. 

I was supposed to yard sale on Sunday too, but late Sat. night I started to no feel so well.  I ended up sleeping until 11:30am on Sunday.  That afternoon I also took a 3 hour nap.  I'm feeling a little better today, but still not 100%.   :(

I need to get moving and start getting ready for work.  Hope everyone has a Monday Funday!!

Double The Crack

Do you see doubles?  I do......everyday.  I have had a personal crackberry blackberry for well over a year (on the right).  I now have one for work (on the left).  What in the world am I going to do with all this crack I am carrying!?!?!  Lol

I know what that is....do you?

Does anyone else see that? 

All my life I thought I was the only one. At times I seriously thought I was crazy and literally questioned my thoughts, my feelings and my memories. 

Although I've kinda been preparing myself for its arrival, part of me really thought it would never come.  Don't get me wrong, there is a part of me that hoped I imagined all of this and it was a great big wacky, strange and demented dream.

I was wrong!!

At a time when people should be laughing, celebrating, giving and receiving......I had an unexpected guest.  Others may call it a Pil, Slon or Olifant......I call it an Elephant and its been standing in the corner of the room quietly awaiting its announcement for the last few months. 

At least it was.....

Last weekend I worked up the nerve to do what seems like what nobody else was going to do.....I pointed out the elephant. I also made it clear that it was not going anywhere until it was addressed. 

It was a shock.            I knew it would be. 
It was uncomfortable.  I knew it would be. 
It was calm.                 I was surprised.

What happens now?  I'm not sure.  I do know that the elephant is still in the room and isn't going anywhere anytime soon.  At least not until everyone who's supposed to see him sees him.  When do I think that will happen?  I'm scared to find out.....

Decluttering

The last couple of weeks I have been trying to declutter my house.  Seriously.....I have a ton of things that I am going to be selling in a yardsale next weekend. I can't believe that I have all of this stuff.  That's right......all it is is STUFF.  Meaningless, money-wasting, space-taking STUFF and I don't want it anymore!!!  I think that this is going to be my biggest yardsale ever.  I'm debating on whether or not I'm to put an ad in the paper.  I usually do better when I do, which makes it worth paying the $20 for it.
Hmmmmm?!?!?!  We will see.

The reason for the decluttering other than the pure fact that I just need to? 

Them:
I've decided to share some of my space with my sissy and nephew.  My little sissy decided to make a fresh start for herself and her son and I am happy to help her out. 
I am so proud of her!!
