Goddard Class Picture

From left to right: (Adults) Me, Kellie, & Lori
(Backrow) Jamison, Rebekah, Ian, Jay, Logan L., Avery, Jonathan, Chloe, & Adam

Here is a picture of my 12-18 months old classroom at The Goddard School. This picture was taken on Tuesday, May 3, 2005. My last day working at the daycare was May 4th and on May 5th, John and I went on our roadtrip to New York. I'm currently working on my mural business, and I'm happy to say that I'm currently finishing up a mural for a child's playroom. They responded to my ad in a local paper called the Columbine Courier. I also finished a mural for my parent's house, and I'm going to continue working on my art. In the meantime, I'm also trying to get a job as a nanny, so I can make some extra money on the side.

Oh, Bother!

Sadly, two character voices have recently died. Both within a short time of each other. The voice of Tigger was the first one---his name was Paul Winchell. The voice of Piglet was the second one---his name was John Fiedler. They were both in their 80s! Thankfully, their voices will forever be immortalized in early Winnie the Pooh cartoons. TTFN(Ta Ta For Now) Piglet and Tigger! :(

Saturday Celebration

John and I went to our friend's house to celebrate another friend's birthday. We had lots of fun! Here is a picture of me playing this very psychotic game that shocks you with a jolt of electricity, if you are the last one to push the button. We went to a Thai restaurant for lunch, and Woody's pizza for dinner. In between, we played lots of games. We mostly enjoyed each others company and had fun chatting about stuff. Oh yeah, we also ate a Carvel ice cream cake for dessert!:)

In a New York Minute

Harry got up
Dressed all in black
Went down to the station
And he never came back
They found his clothing
Scattered somewhere down the track
And he won't be down on Wall Street
in the morning
He had a home
The love of a girl
But men get lost sometimes
As years unfurl
One day he crossed some line
And he was too much in this world
But I guess it doesn't matter anymore
In a New York Minute
Everything can change
In a New York Minute
Things can get pretty strange
In a New York Minute
Everything can change
In a New York Minute
Lying here in the darkness
I hear the sirens wail
Somebody going to emergency
Somebody's going to jail
If you find somebody to love in this world
You better hang on tooth and nail
The wolf is always at the door
In a New York Minute
Everything can change
In a New York Minute
Things can get a little strange
In a New York Minute
Everything can change
In a New York Minute
And in these days
When darkness falls early
And people rush home
To the ones they love
You better take a fool's advice
And take care of your own
One day they're here;
Next day they're gone
I pulled my coat around my shoulders
And took a walk down through the park
The leaves were falling around me
The groaning city in the gathering dark
On some solitary rock
A desperate lover left his mark,
"Baby, I've changed. Please come back."
What the head makes cloudy
The heart makes very clear
The days were so much brighter
In the time when she was here
But I know there's somebody somewhere
Make these dark clouds disappear
Until that day, I have to believe
I believe, I believe
In a New York Minute
Everything can change
In a New York Minute
You can get out of the rain
In a New York Minute
Everything can change
In a New York Minute

Downtown Fun

John and I went to downtown Denver today and hung out with our friend, Jay. We went to the Firefighters Museum, and we saw a memorial for 9-11. We also saw lots of cool firefighter stuff from the past. Afterwards, we went to the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch and saw memorabilia for The Beatles and Marilyn Manson to name a few. After lunch, we checked out Coyote Ugly just for curiousity reasons. We went back to Jay's to watch a chess movie about Garry Kasparov. From there, we went to Larimier Square to see artist create masterpieces on the asphalt with colored chalk. A lot of work for something that will end up being washed away as soon as it rains, but I thought it was cool. It definitely will be a pretty sight to see when it does get washed away.
Here are some more pictures from today's events! :)

Here is a picture of John Lennon on the wall at the Hard Rock Cafe.

Coyote Ugly Saloon...interesting place! ;)

Love Doves

Here are two love doves that like to hang around our house. I saw them last year, and they have come back again. I like to see them hanging around. They are very cute when they walk around on the deck railing, and bob their heads.

How can you mend a broken heart
How can you stop the rain from falling down
How can you stop the sun from shining
What makes the world go round

I finished a mural....

I finished this mural for my parents on June 10, 2005. I was working on it all week, while they were out of town. They'll be back sometime today to see it. I put 25 hours into this mural, and I feel really good about it. I think I'll only improve over time.

In other news, I'm working on a sketch today for a couple who are interested in a mural for their baby's playroom. I'm pretty sure they will hire me! It was nice to know that they saw my ad in the Columbine Courier, but I think after the courier is done I will put it in a paper directed towards families only. I think that will improve my chances of interest. Nothing else is new, but I'm hoping I'll have more good news to write about soon.

My Monthly Wish List

Each month I go through the same feelings----I want a baby! Anyone who has ever tried to have a baby knows all about the waiting game. Those two weeks of waiting to know whether I was successful or not is grueling. I've been going to the chiropracter, that helped my brother and sister-in-law get pregnant, for almost two weeks. My sister-in-law, who was told she would never have children, got pregnant after five months of chiropractic treatment. I'm trying to remain optomistic, but I am tired of having a breakdown every month when I get my period. I just want to be successful at getting pregnant and having a baby. I don't think that is asking for too much.
