painful night.....

since the time i was 11, when mother nature decided to have my hormones kick in once a month, i have had severe painful migraines/headaches. yup. it sucks. hard core. i get one right before "things" start and another one when it stops, both lasting for about 2-3days. last night was part 2 of my feb. friend. yay me. i was minding my own business reading a book when all of a sudden i noticed out of the corner of my right eye there was a fuzzy line thing going on. then i sneezed and i swear someone drove a nail in my left temple that's how bad it hurt. so i took some tylenol and went and laid down in the dark. i felt really bad tho, because my man was sick all weekend and he's done something to his back so that's a bother to him. little a was ready for dinner and i planned on making chicken and waffles (more about those on another post) and he had no clue how to make this. well....he was awesome. they took max out for a quick walk and i started the chicken. when they came back in, i had everything ready for him to make dinner. i have to say.....he didn't do too bad. i laid down while they were making dinner together and little a, even after almost 9 yrs, is still working on "inside voices" lol she was just chattering away about anything and everything. it was so funny to listen to this from the bedroom. she's just going on and on and on and on.........and my poor man was just doing the usual "uh huhs....oh really?" and then at one point i just started giggling...i just hear him go..."CAN YOU PLEASE SHUT UP!?!?" laughing the whole time he's saying it. during the week he's gone 12hrs a day. he's home with us as a family for about an hour before it's bedtime for her. so he's not quite used chatty cathy here. then i hear her go..."yeah...i talk too much, don't i?" but they had a lot of fun making dinner and it came out pretty darn tasty. now if only this headache would go away.....

mrs. darcy......mrs. darcy........

where do i even begin. this book is just amazing. how two people who are so much alike yet so completely unaware of that fact till the end, then fall in love is just beautiful. how simple looks and first judgments can create such silly ideas and notions about people who you may never know because you never give them a chance. but once given that chance, your first ideas, notions and rash judgments were completely wrong and you missed out on so much.

i watched the kiera knightly and matthew macfadyen version of the movie last night. i just LOVE this movie. the chemistry between the two of them is just perfect with the tone of the movie. gentle hand touches and lingering looks......words spoken from the heart that just don't come out right at first but have so much meaning behind them.

there's a secret about me you may not know. inside i'm a complete hopeless romantic. i'm a mushball when it comes to love and romance. not the overly mushy stuff, but stories of two people who are so completely meant to be that despite anything and everything they were truly meant to be together. love songs get me too. romantic gestures melt my heart. a well written romantic movie will move me to tears. the movie titanic had me bawling for days after i first saw it. not so much the jack and rose story line, tho it was part of it, mostly that fact that it's based around an actual event and real live people who were in love died. the old couple holding on to each other as the water is coming up around them.....even now i tear up. how even when they knew they were about to die, they just held on to each other. forever. love does that to people. true love.

the scene at the end of the movie, where lizzie is walking in the early morning mist and she notices darcy walking towards heart completely skips a beat and my breath gets caught in my lungs.

Mr. Darcy: How are you this evening, my dear?

Elizabeth Bennet: Very well. Only, I wish you would not call me "my dear."

Mr. Darcy: Why?

Elizabeth Bennet: Because it's what my father calls my mother whenever he's cross about something.

Mr. Darcy: Well, what endearments am I allowed?

Elizabeth Bennet: Well, let me think..."Lizzie" for everyday, "my pearl" for Sundays, and "Goddess Divine," but only on special occasions.

Mr. Darcy: And what am I to call you when I'm cross? "Mrs. Darcy?"

Elizabeth Bennet: No, you may only call me "Mrs. Darcy" when you are completely, perfectly and incandescently happy.

Mr. Darcy: And how are you this evening... Mrs. Darcy? Mrs. Darcy... Mrs. Darcy... Mrs. Darcy!

{heart explosion}

i came across this picture today that made my heart explode with love and cuteness. these two giraffes remind me so much of aslynn and i. i love how their eyes are closed and are just loving this moment of being loved by each other. makes me want to go bring her home from school and spend the day together doing silly things.


my sister lives in PA. she's going through a REALLY crappy time at work. seeing as how i've got tons of free time now, i started emailing her funny pictures i come across on the interwebs, just little things to help make her day a little easier. so far it's helping. it's also helping us to reconnect and "hang out" daily and talk.

my sister and i are 11 1/2yrs apart in age. so now that we're both older, we're more on an even playing field. i'll always be the quirky baby sister who is the black sheep of the family and she'll always be the wiser one that's always looking out for me. i love her to death. i wish we could hang out more in real life, and not just through emails, but for now that's working out great.

spontaneous invisibility cloak

do you ever get that? like one minute you know that people see you and are talking to you, then *POOF* it seems as if you completely have disappeared!?!? i know my car has this problem, there have been so many random times when i've almost been side swiped by people. fun times driving in ca. fun times indeed.

i guess we all go through times were people see you and can talk to you and enjoy your company, then others where it's like you've completely gone. spontaneous invisibility cloak! when you're under the cloak you can completely see and hear what's going on around you which in it's own right can be pretty darn fun. you can gather little bits of funny stories or shocking news from "she said/she said" stuff. you can see people who think no one is paying attention to them do the silliest or rudest things possible.

i like to think of my cloak as a pretty shinning star covered cloak complete with sparkles and glitter. you can never go wrong with glitter!! ever. or stars. what would your spontaneous invisibility cloak look like?
