I think I was in bed by midnight. No suit case packed, no grapes, no money, and none of the other superstitious stuff. I was almost falling asleep when I heard my sister yell out Happy New Year!!! She quickly said good night after that.
I don’t have any resolutions. Do we have to have them? If we have them, do we have to talk about it? I’m not one of those people who has to talk about stuff like that. Kind of like when people give stuff up for lent. They spent 40 days saying over and over how they can’t have certain things because they have it up for lent. WHY?!?!?! Give it up and shut up about it LOL.
I’ve never been a fan of resolutions. BUT I am a firm believer in what you do on the first of the year, you will continue to do the rest of the year. I usually have a list of things I do. This year was way different. It was such a lazy day lol. So I hope I don’t spend the entire year being lazy. For the first time in years I watched the Rose Parade. I watched Christmas movies. I made some paper flowers, something I do hope to do all year long. It’s only 8:30 and I already forgot what else I did today LOL.
I hope you have an awesome 2019.
Hi Danigirl <3 tia Loves you.
Wow this time change really did a number on me. On all of us I’m sure. I do appreciate the extra hour sleep, even if we can only tell for the first few days that we are getting an extra hour. What I don’t like is how dark it’s going to be while I wait for the train to head home.
Having some coffee while I wait for the train to go to work and I remembered that my niece Dani mentioned how I haven’t updated my blog in a long time. I hate that excuse that life happens lol. There is always time for updates I just need to figure out what I want to talk about. When I started this thing in 2007, I just wanted it to document my sewing journey, my progress. I wanted to keep track of how far I’d come. I did a pretty good job of posting. A few years later I was hacked and lost everything. I was so bummed that somebody would actually take the time to hack this or any site and completely remove my hard work and my friends hard work. Who at the time was hosting this site and designing it for me. For a long time I didn’t want anything to do with it and in a way I feel like along with deleting my posts they took some of my sewing passion. I don’t sew as much as I did before. I craft all the time. But don’t sew as much as I want to.
If you’re still reading this Danigirl, Tia loves you.
I’ve been slowly trying to get back into sewing. Making things here and there. I need to get it together and just focus. Sit at my machine and fall in love with it all over again. I might just give it a go tonight while I’m watching wrestling. Yes this grown woman watches wrestling. Since I was 3 lol. Dani asked me about scrunches and I think I’ll make her some tonight.
Belle & Dani, have a great day at school. Congrats on the good grades. Continue to make good choices, and when you’re not sure. Always always always ask yourself: WHAT WOULD MIKE TROUT DO?!?!?! Tia loves you.
I hope your weekend was as uneventful as mine. Who wants to do anything in this California heat.

What are you grateful for?
It’s been a long week. Between the weather, work and an Angels 10 day home stand. I am a little tired. So as I sit here on the train headed to work. I hope today goes by fast.
I can’t believe it’s my 5th post this week. I don’t know why I haven’t been posting as much as I have wanted to. I’m not one to complain about not having time. I can easily post on the train when I’m going to work or going home. I might just try to take advantage of that. Like I said in a post earlier this week, I want to do a do’s and don’ts about riding the train. Metro Monday? LOL.
Did I mention I’m tired? Ha!
Not tired enough to go see this guy play tonight.
Bottom left picture, YES Mike Trout was waving at ME!!! I thought he was waving at a somebody behind me, so I turned around and there was nobody there. Like a true fan girl I wanted to flip out and yell I LOVE YOU MIKE TROUT. But I didn’t. I kept taking pictures and he kept waving!
I could talk baseball for days, but my train is almost at my destination and I better get ready to get off. These passengers are vultures when they are trying to catch their shuttles so I need to pay attention. ROFL
Happy Friday. Have a good weekend.
I didn’t realize how long it had been since my last update until my niece Dani reminded me that I hadn’t updated my blog. She’s probably the only one that checks for updates and that’s okay with me.
A lot has happened in the last few months. Lots of good stuff and some stuff not so good.
I’m back to work. I don’t know if that falls under good or bad LOL. The fun thing about work is that I take metro. If you know me, you know I like taking the train places. So it’s a daily adventure lol. I will be doing a blog post of the do’s and don’ts of riding metro.
I love people watching so riding the train to work has been fun. I posted this in my personal Instagram. But I wanted to share it here too.
He usually wears bright pants. I was surprised to see him wearing black. What doesn’t surprise me is the confidence in his walk. People stare at him because of his bright pants. But he walks like he truly doesn’t give a fuck what people think. GOOD FOR HIM. We should all walk with that same confidence.
Hi Dani girl <3 Tia loves you.
Please stop by on Thursday for an extra special Thank you Thursday dedicated to Hugo Juarez! My friends husband who recently passed. Love you Diana.
Have a great week!
Huge thank you to my coworkers that have reached out to me this past week and a half. I still consider them my coworkers even if I don’t work with them anymore. I was laid off from my job of 22 years and I miss them so much. I think of you daily ladies and I hope you think of me too.
Chia: my days are not complete without you. Thank you for staying with me while I packed everything up. It means so much to me to know that I can always count on you. Our friendship is everything to me.
Mrs. Glorie: I can’t even type without crying. Thank you for always believing in me, for always appreciating me and for always being the friend that we all need in our lives. Don’t let me hear that your giving anybody else a bowl of potato salad or your going to hurt my feelings.
Mrs. Ima: my morning coffee is so boring without you, and who am I supposed to get my news from now? The weather report and the entertainment news from. Thanks for always being the light of my day. Thank you for always loving all my crafts and for always telling me no to give my talent away. I miss you.
Arlene: i had to start making my own pancakes since I don’t have you around to make them for me. Stay positive and stay eating all the yummy tofu. Thanks for always being a good sport and for always being so nice to me even when I was mean to you lol. I hope that you finally learned how to pronounce pescatarian lol.
Maricela: I wish I could have been there your last few days with the company. Best of luck with your new job. I know you will be amazing. Thank you for your support and for always appreciating all my crafts!. I hope I still see you every Christmas for your family photos!
