My son has just given me a list of guitars and accessories that he's looking forward to buying or getting as gifts. Even though he's 17 it just never seems to end, does it? LOL On his list was a pretty cool looking floyd rose special. I really wish I could get him a few things to start off his collection. Hopefully my uncle, who shares this passion, will come in to save the day ;)

My aunt has been all over the place in her nearly 50 years but she hasn't gone to many of the southern continents. She lives in Europe so they go around a great deal there but she'd really like to take her girls to some of the poorer countries. I think that would be a wonderful experience for them given that they are teens and one really loves to be as helpful as she can be. I think she's going to be a great teacher or humanitarian of some sort one day. I have a few friends that have done a lot of traveling southward doing humanitarian work and they have highly recommended it. They get to enjoy what each country offers while doing a lot of great things for people that need it. There isn't much better than that kind of feeling of fulfillment. I really wish I had done something like the Peace Corps when I was younger, myself. She's mentioned going to some countries in Africa and South America. I would love to take our kids to those places some day. How neat would it be to see animals outside of a zoo in their natural environment?! Anyways, she's been pricing out ethiopian airlines tickets and trying to find some of the nicer places to stay. She's also mentioned Zimbabwe and a few other places (of which I can't recall). I'd imagine that it would be a relatively cheap vacation, but you never know with the amount of tourism there. I hope they do get the chance to go...and bring back lots of pictures!

My (almost) eight month old already seems to have his first crush. It's really funny to watch him react to her on TV. "She" would be "Nina" on "The Goodnight Show" on Sprout. She totally captivates him and we think that his first word is going to be "up" because of her doing the "Sprout stretches". He will imitate her as she says it and it's really just too cute. We are starting to wonder if we could find a way for him to meet her, as unlikely as it may be, but it would be such a wonderful story for later on!

My father in law is pretty big on smoking. Typically he smokes pipes but he's been known to delve into cigars. He just recently had surgery and I thought it it would be a nice "get well" gift if we sent him something. Having quit smoking myself, I'm not entirely sure on what to get him. I went to Famous Smoke Shop and they have a great selection of products and I could easily put together a nice gift. Thank goodness for the internet lol.

Whenever a season ends I usually end up trying to find all the sales so that I can stock up for the next year. It was relatively easy since DD doesn't grow every often or much when she does, but all of a sudden I have three kids who are all growing either rapidly or on schedule and now I'm not sure what sizes to be buying lol. At least I can still shop for me. I've been trying to find patagonia sales to get a few things that have recently worn out of mine. I love shopping!

Way back when I used to have a stack of police officer business cards from all of the incidents I had with my ex. I was thinking about this the other day and how happy I am that I don't have to deal with any of that anymore. Of course it's always possible for something to come up again, but it's nice to know that I don't have the number memorized anymore and it's not one of the 10 numbers I have on speed dial. I'm glad I made a good decision for myself and my children, finally.

I'm so tired of having to worry about everyone else and their feelings when no consideration is pointed our way. We're heading towards a custody war with his ex and a battle with his mother shortly after. It's really hard for me to understand how these types of people ended up in his life but I really wish they would just go away and stay out of our lives.It really makes me just want to disappear.
