That's me right now, bumming. Paul has been working really long hours. He hasn't been home for dinner on a weeknight for about three weeks. They have been working on a big project, so that is the way it is. I always seem to call his office at the wrong time. I just haven't gotten my grove back yet since our move back to California. Everyone is busy, busy doing what I do not know, but busy. I just don't have any close friendships here yet. I have been thinking about trying to take an art class or something, to meet people that have similar interests and to learn a little something, but it doesn't fit into Caden's school schedule and I never know when to count on Paul being home, so that will have to wait too. It seems like all I have been doing is waiting. I have been waiting for my new laptop to load our pictures from Caden's 7th birthday party at Disneyland.

To top it all off, we just found out that our car that we purchased would have to be titled as a salvage, so now I am carless and we have to begin another search for a car. We seem to have no luck whatsoever with keeping a second car. It was a volvo wagon with only 70,ooo miles on it only a couple of surface dents, and it rode and drove really nice. Oh well, at least we had it to get us to Disneyland and back! So wish us luck on finding a car and actually keeping it :).....

OK, so that is my lame explanation on why I do not blog so much anymore, it seems the same story, different day. I still am having extreme problems with my back. I am trying a new treatment where they burn the small nerves that are impinged in my facet joints. The first of three procedures is next Wednesday. They will numb the nerves to see if it helps, if it does help, it will only be for a few hours. The second procedure will be the same to make sure the first wasn't a "placebo" effect. The fthird and final procedure is where they actually burn the nerves, it has helped some people for 6-12 months, and ever so often has taken almost all of the back pain away. My regual nerve blocks help my leg nerve pain from the scar tissue and permanent nerve damage on the sciatic nerve, but do not help at all with the back pain. We are hoping and praying this helps. I want so badly to get to work on my ceramic art again, I have been drawing so many ideas, but cannot stand at the table long enough to complete anything.

Ok, I am sick of complaining. If you got this far, sorry for whining. Just gotta let it out....

So to get my mind off of all of these things I cannot take cafe of right now, I played a little flickr game....

The concept:
a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
b. Using only the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd's mosaic maker.

The Questions:
1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What high school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. Favorite drink?
7. Dream vacation?
8. Favorite dessert?
9. What you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. One Word to describe you.
12. Your flickr name.

so this may be strange, but i saw your name under house on hill road's flickr contacts, noticed that you were from northern california, came to your blog and realized (looking at your photos) that we live in the same town! and i thought i knew all the local bloggers :) anyways, just wanted to say hello neighbor (we live within walking distance from western states trail too).
