Another Day

No matter what happens in life we hope and pray to live another day. No one I know has died recently. This is not about that. Is is about surviving the troubles and stresses each day.

Another day promises something better. Today could be so terrible that we cannot wait for another day.

Its like a new begining only instead of a new year it just a new day. An chance for things to get better just because we were rewarded with life another day.

Another day could mean that is just like any other day. "Yesterday the grass was green today is just another day."

Somethings do not change. Regardless of what we do we cannot change them. Noone wants to change the grass but even those who do cannot get the green out of grass.

So what do I mean by another day. I have not got a clue. It was something that popped into my head so I decided to blog about it.

Hopefully we know the things we can change so we do just that, and the things we cannot. We ignore.

PROJECT RUNWAY SEASON 4

I have never been devoted to any television program. I am loyal to some and other I care less about. But even the shows that I watch loyally can be dismissed without a second thought. But I am devoted to Project Runway.

This show starts out with 15 designers’ ends with 3 who will design 12 outfits for a Fashion show at Bryant Park in NYC. The judges, Michael Kors, Nina Garcia, Heidi Klum ( who is also the host of the show ) And a guest judge which changes each episode. And we must not forget TIM! I love the way he talks.

So far 2 episodes in and I can’t wait for the next one. I know I have watched these 2 episodes at least 6 times (Thanks to BRAVO TV) and each time I see something a little different.

I have been a seamstress of sorts for over 20 years. However any photos of past accomplishments were lost in a fire of the family home several years ago. I have contacted several people that I have made gowns for in the past in the hope of rebuilding my photo album.

Family Traditions

Every family have traditions. Some revolve around pagan holidays or worldy traditions and some happen by accident.

One year for what ever the reason we all found ourselves over my cousin/Aunt Polly's house, since we were all together and everyone was off from work or school the next day some one suggested " lets watch movies all night".

Who knows, it could have been a challenge to see who could hang (stay up all night) and then go out in Field service the next morning. So we went out and rented movies and stayed up all night watching movies and eating snacks.

The next morning, Bridget would get up and go out in field service the next morning, of course she is one of the first to fall asleep.

Those of us who did stay up all night continued watching movies into the next day and then would go home around 3:00 or 4:oo to sleep because we had to work in the tomorrow.

We have been doing this for at least 20+ years and none of us can remember what started this family tradition…

In my own little corner.

As I started to think about writing this I was reminded of my favorite part of the Cinderella play that aired on TV when I was a child. While her stepmother and stepsisters were getting ready for the ball. She sat in a little chair and sang a song of all the imaginary places she would go to and all the things she would do while sitting safely all alone in her little corner in her own little chair.

November 8 is the 4th anniversary of my marriage to Tag. Three months before this date we made our plans, first of which was to make sure we had to whole week off from work. We talked about the places we could go, the people we could visit, the things we could and how much it would cost. Redid the budget so bill would get paid and we could still vacation.

We talked about visiting Terri in KY. She had been having some difficult times being alone and I just wanted to reassure her that she was close enough for us to get to her and just hang out with her for a couple days.

We talked about vis…
