Oh breasts

Dear My Breasts,

I'm not sure if you received the earlier memo, so I wanted to send out a letter to touch base.

Your purpose has recently changed. Hopefully you understand what this now means for you.

No longer are you around to provide nourishment or to fill an empty belly. Now your sole purpose is to appear attractive. If you would perk up a little bit it would be greatly appreciated. A little goes a long way. One would think that now that you only have to hang out and look pretty you would in fact be quite perky about your new lack of responsibility, but alas you don't seem the feel that way. And your lack of perkiness is really starting to take a toll on me.

Remember the good ole' days? When I used to let you roam freely in a halter or tube top? We could get back to that if you would only cooperate. I'm willing to put the last almost two years behind us and begin again. But it's going to take some effort on your part.

I hope that we can continue to have a loving and beautiful relationship with one another, but that will not happen if you continue to have such a droppy attitude. Bring back the perkiness that I used to appreciate, please. That is all.

Just a thought

I always think of this quote from, Garden State:

"You'll see when you move out - it just sort of happens one day, and it's just gone.
And you can never get it back. It's like you get homesick for a place that doesn't exist.
I mean, it's like this rite of passage, you know.
You won't have this feeling again until you create a new idea of home for yourself,
you know, for your kids, for the family you start, it's like a cycle or something.
I miss the idea of it. Maybe that's all family really is.
A group of people who miss the same imaginary place."

I do feel homesick for a place that doesn't exist. Because, in reality, things will never be just the way I want them to be.

Life's twist and turns

So does anyone really know what they want in life. Once you think you have something spectacular or perfect then something comes along and throws in a speed bump or pothole which then throws you off course mind boggled. I am not sure what I am getting at. But just curious does anyone else feel this way at times..

Just another day..

I am so IN LOVE with my new camera I would love to make a spot in bed for it..and sleep with it is awesome. I am still figuring out RAW and Jpeg so I have a some good pictures from the park yesterday but can't put them on here because it is a RAW image and I haven't figured out how to manage them yet. So I will be doing both a Jpeg and Raw. From what I understand RAW is better picture quality so I want that for sure you can't edit them as easily though so I need to do JPEG first I think and correct any mistakes then go from there.

Any is going good I developed another roll last night (all by myself) and some turned out some didn't..I was practicing messing with my exposure worries but there aren't any pictures I really like on the roll but one of a tree and it's bare branches so I think I will print that tonight in the darkroom. Man it's awesome taking this class!! I can't wait for next quarter and get some digital experience under my belt!

Today we are going to the park again WHO WOULDN'T in 80 degree weather..hopefully I can pick up a tan ;) But I want to get the kids out to play and take some more pictures. I think it's more I want to take pictures (is that wrong) then take them to play. But hey I gotta practice or how will I make money down the road and be GREAT! I want to open a business doing this and make great prints and take even better pictures ya know..capture that moment! Anyway the sky is the cheers!

Finally!!! I feel so I can take on the world and capture EVERYTHING..I am so excited to read the manuel and get to shooting!!

Sunny Fun this weekend

We went to the Park on Saturday and Boone played with chalk for the first time it was funny..he thought he needed every single piece in his hand and then he started eating it and got it on his face. I have my sister visiting this week with us and she had fun at the park with us!! We also went to the breast cancer Race for the cure on Sunday and she was so so excited about it she kept saying she was going to be in a pink parade so we made cute shirts and went and walked for a mile. IT was fun and rewarding supporting people who had or have breast cancer!

In other news my camera is suppose to be here today will post when it gets here and we are also going to the park again today so I will have pictures for you tomorrow.. ENJOY THE SUN TODAY!

A great little spot I found

I found this little spot on the way home while out walking and it is so perfect the sun hits it just right mid day and once I get my camera you will see alot of pictures from this little park. The stream is cute and has a spot at the end that is flat where the water goes right around I think it's very cute nestled amongst the big hospitals and buildings. SO enjoy the photos...Oh and the wonderful weather this weekend you know I will have pictures coming

Good marrow

Hello everyone..I am so excited to announce I did my first exposure of negatives in the school darkroom last night in class and they came out PERFECT. I will take a picture of the negs in my sleeve and post on here later!!!!!! I am so tickled (if that's the right word) to be going into this profession it just keeps growing with every little creative idea you could possibly have. The sky is the limit because you can use your imagination for everything...I am going to be taking pictures today and then maybe going to the dark room again tomorrow or Monday and using the darkroom again...IT is so much fun to know hey I did that and not alot of people can just go in and understand this whole procedure. But any who I am off to class and then enjoying the day with my SON!! I miss everyone and sorry I haven't been posting!!!

I am back..

Wow I haven't posted in fooorrreeevvver...Ok so I finished my first week of school back and got over my terrible stomach bug. AND I am still nursing my poor little man back to health after he caught a cough and nasty nose from his cousins (where he always gets it). I got some great pictures from Easter as well. We went to Zack's moms house in Davenport and had the whole family there and went on a egg hunt with the kids and it was Boone's first time participating (tear) I can't believe how fast he is growing. Let's see...oh I got into a fight on Friday evening with Zack's brother a shooting fight because FIRST you need to know a little about this guy...he thinks he is always right and women are always wrong..he likes to say comments like women belong in the kitchen and don't know anything about sports ext...well he also thinks he is knows everything and that he is never in the is a picture so you have picture of what and who I am talking about...

OK so anyways we are dishing up dinner and Zack goes and sits down at the table and goes hey babe did you give Boone some cough medicine..and before I could answer josh (Zack's brother) chimes in and goes what cough medicine what's it called (with an attitude like wait a min you can't give babies cough medicine) and I said no not yet babe..(this whole time Boone is having a coughing attack) I was getting him some dinner. SO Zack's uncle walks in and chimes in you can't give babies cough syrup..then Zack's mom goes don't worry about it..then Zack's uncle leaves and josh is still asking questions what is it..let me see it and I said "well I guess I am not a mom" because I told him it's children's Tylenol and I have the proper dosage from my doctor to give him mind you. And when I said my comment he yelled at me "shout your mouth" and I got PISSED and I shouted back no don't talk to me like that, and he said shout your mouth Nicole I am not talking to you and I said well we weren't talking to you and you piped up and butted in. And he said no I started talking to my brother and I said well this doesn't concern you and he said no it doesn't concern you and I yelled back anything with MY son concerns me and I will chime in WHENEVER I want to and there's nothing you can do about it. And then he changed his attitude and changed everything he was talking about and acted like he wanted to find out what we give Boone so he could give it to his girls (the ones who always get Boone sick) and I said bull shit josh you wanted to pipe up and tell us we were doing something bad and try to be super parent. You don't know shit so don't say shit! And I walked away still just pissed...

But the thing with josh is he is always like that he thinks he can shout at you and you will be submissive to him and he can say whatever he wants and treat people however he wants and I WILL not be treated like that I have dealt with his shit like that for 3 years now and ya know what NOT HAVING IT! And I hope he realizes now I am going to stand up against him and I don't care if he pouts like a baby about it for months. BUt I am the only one to ever stand up to him and I surprised zack and his mom they were trying to break us up the whole time. SO yeah I had to get that off my chest now for Easter pictures lol..

So I woke up this morning at 3 with a horrible stomach ache and ended up vomiting...afterwards I felt better so I went back to bed but woke up at 6 and was really nauseous again and got up and ended up vomiting again at 8:30 and again at 9:30 so I decided (against my better judgement) to go to the ER to see what was going on...we were there for 4 hours before being seen in that time I vomited 3 more times in the bathroom...when we were finally seen they gave me an IV and some fluids cause I was dehydrated and also some queasy medicine to make me feel better we were there for another 4 hours and just got home...ick..with nothing but a paper saying rest and fluids because I have a bad stomach bug and I was dehydrated!!! ICK I hate needles I almost passed out...and I MISSED SCHOOL TODAY DAMN IT!
