The Day Before...

AACK!! I am such a procrastinator!! I can't believe tomorrow I get to leave for Utah. I'm so excited to go back to Women's Conference. It is such an awesome experience. Its time for my lamp to be refilled. Big Time. What I think I am looking forward to most is the personal messages that I will receive at this conference. I need those messages so badly. Junk food/snacks...ready, sort of. Clothes are washed..I just need to pack it all. I have been so lazy today. It took forever for me to get going. Its the way it is for me, I guess. Couple of videos to share, the first is a video from a couple of Filipino kids singing Dance with My Father. Loved this one. Pics to come...

Friday Adventures

This week has been so blah! I didn't get to work much at all. But, I did get to visit with a friend for lunch. And, a unexpected trip to Mesquite. No reason except I wanted to go to Wally World- it's a magical place. ; )

It was while in the dressing room stall trying a dress, I hear this being sung by one of the workers...

It almost made me want to buy the Red album from Taylor Swift, almost. I could not find it, am I the only one who buys CD's anymore? Very small music section. I bought Bruno Mars instead. : )

I have to share the card I got.
Today I'm thinking of the times you've listened with compassion and gently given guidance...
The ways you've cared and encouraged, always wanting the best for me...
The ways you've offered honesty and love straight from your heart.
You've cared for me the way a mother would, and I couldn't be more grateful.
I hope you enjoy this day for all Mom's...because you're like a Mother to me.
Happy Mother's Day

I seriously couldn't have said it better myself. This is for my dear friend Linda, who has always been there for me. I hope this year to do a Motherless Daughter's brunch on Saturday, I hope this plan works out, I have always wanted to do this. Maybe go to Kneader's in St. George? I think it would be nice to do. I am not gonna lie, Mother's Day is always rough. But I've done things in the past, like give flowers or a gift to someone I think about at that time, usually to do some sort of sevice helps me. We can all remember our mom's in our own way.

Anyway, so here's the pic of my fabulous find! :)

And along the way home from Mesquite, we discovered things like Orange Whips..Fake pink snowballs, my first time to try that, eh on the snowball. And the Boulder City Biker Gang...that could be a new song I should write, ha ha ha. You had to be there. But I have to end this post with one of my favorite songs from Bruno Mars-

I hope my friends know they can count on me as much as I count on you. -xoxo

As I sit here in the middle of the night, nursing a super bad attack of allergies..and doing middle of the night things, I feel the need to write this down for me. I am p.o.'d .  I had my first encounter with what I think is either a case of dementia..or alzheimer's...or just getting old. I phoned my grandma, who moved to texas . Who I have not called since Christmas. She has not once phoned me since she moved down there. Everytime I call the calls are weird. This time she railed on me. She sounded mad...over sheets. Thats right. The sheets we lie on at night? Yup..she said I called her in the middle of the night and I told her I hated them. And..she told me that she was not going to call..or write. I have called once at christmas...and the other was in October! Sometimes I feel why do I bother? Its like I keep getting a door slammed in my face. I try to be positive, but you know what? Its hard. Its hard sometimes being apart of a church who's focus is on the family. And the family that has unconditional love for me, is not here. But with that being said..I won't give up trying to make a contact with my grandma. I know she is in the twilight of her life. But I just think what gives seniors the right to be mean? Really?!! I have said this before, I wish I have learned to give zingers...but that is not me. No, I'm just the one that is on the receiving end and gets kicked in the stomach. Thats me.  But with all that being said. I am going to focus on being kind. And focus and realize the people that call me...that do care about me. They are the ones that matter. And to know that my Heavenly Father and Savior love me unconditionally. And that will do for now...

"There are those among you who, although young, have already suffered a full measure of grief and sorrow. My heart is filled with compassion and love for you. How dear you are to the Church. How beloved you are of your Heavenly Father. Though it may seem that you are alone, angels attend you. Though you may feel that no one can understand the depth of your despair, our Savior, Jesus Christ, understands. He suffered more than we can possibly imagine, and He did it for us; He did it for you."
- President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

The first song on here..even though is the anthem for EFY, I can relate to this tonight.

Wraping up March.

So this post is in April, but I am writing about March. I haven't posted in a little while, whoops. Where did my time go? Oh well. Not alot happened in March...okay thats not true. LOL. Here's history-

I attempted making Cafe Rio tomatillo ranch, for relief society. For 45 people yikes. It's from our best bites-amazingly good. I'm not making for a very very long time. :)
Caught a beautiful sunset...
Been welcoming the spring season, and unfortunately allergy season. ACV really does work, along with this. Sometimes allergies suck. But no sick calls! :)
Went to my first book signing to meet Cassandra Clare. Super fun, and Madness I tell you!! :)

Improving my patient realtion skills- ok not really.
Discovered my Dad's art skills. And realized his book was named As SIIS Turns. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree seeing I named my blog As My World Turns. It was meant to be. :)
Discovered this culinary delight. Really? And why is there a pic of a family walking along this package of cheese?! Just adds to the cheesyness.  ;)
Made freezer meals for the first time that go straight from freezer to crock. Cause I love to be a lazy cook sometimes. ;)
Finally decided this needs to be hung in my kitchen. Its getting framed now. It was my one art purchase from Rome, Italy.
A reminder for us all.
And lastly....I did it!!!!

Holy. Cow. That is all.
