mexico spring break

well i'm feeling rather nostalgic now. but can it be called nostalgia when it was fewer than 3 days ago? we are just back from an incredible trip to tijuana, mexico, lovingly called t.j. by the locals, or should i say socals? i think it's only southern californians that really call it that, being that the spanish language doesn't easily allow for the sound jay. anyhoo. i have been watching video footage at work, not so sure if it's allowed, but when the boss is away, jess will hit play...oh that was bad. and looking at my pics too. i'm very disappointed in them since 99% of them are grainy. oh well, the memories are still there and i'm soon to have a super disc of all the photos taken on the trip courtesy of my good friend lance. an i only have a minute more of this lunch break. so i bid you adios until next time.

luck o' the irish

hello out there in cyber land. i'd like to give a big shout out to my "little" brother on his birthday. happy birthday, code!!! so, do you think st.patrick would be offended that people are calling him paddy? i know around here at the hospital there is a lot of green going on. even our decorative fountain thingy is green. i, myself, have forgotten to don the color today, but have managed to escape the obligatory sly little comments about pinching. probably not for long, though.
well, all is coming together for mexico. i can't believe we will be leaving in a day and a half. my cousin is sewing a dress for one of the orphans and i can't wait to see it. surely it will blow away the wal mart competition, which i purchased last night. kids' clothes are expen$ive. well, that's about it from here. i really need to get some pictures to spice up this page:)

you like me, you really like me

i apologize for the lame title. i just always feel like i don't have anything interesting to write about, but that may be due to the fact that i am unwilling to put the most interesting things online. the title should have read, "you love me, you really love me." because lately i have just been blown away by the friends in my life and how much they love me. last night i received a phone call from a friend in california who suffers from late stages of endometriosis. i believe that i have the same disease and have yet to do anything about it. she begged me in a whisper from her excruciating pain, "please don't wait too long." it haunted me. i know God is giving me a warning and that i need to go to the doctor. but i have just been receiving encouraging words from friends as well and have been having a good week. God is really good to me.
