30 Days, Day Twenty-Eight

Day 28-Something that stresses you out
Something that stresses me out? Well the big one is confrontation, I hate it!! I hate fighting, and I feel just horrible if I offend someone. Like it really bothers me and I feel guilty. I'm not sure why, but I've just always been that way. Except for when it comes to my husband. Maybe because I know he loves me unconditionally. I also think because I know he will be there no matter what, I feel ok to argue with him I know he isn't going to love me any less for stating my opinion or being myself. Or even if I'm completely wrong he will call me out on it and we may argue but in the end I know we love each other and nothing can break that bond. My poor husband, I wonder if reading this he will be happy that he is the only one I like to fight with or he will be sad that he is the only one who has to take my shit. And I'm not saying that I am afraid to be myself that's not it, but sometimes I'd rather let my friends/family voice their opinion and just keep mine to myself if I don't agree. I'm totally content with that. Oh and if I've ever offended you please don't be afraid to tell me, sometimes my mouth gets me in trouble and things don't come out right. Especially in text ;)
Another thing that stresses me out is a new one. At my new job sometimes I have the Doctor, the Office Manager, and the Receptionist asking for something or I have 12 charts piling up on my desk. I guess it just more overwhelming than stressful, but sometimes it feels that way.
I have this friend who once told me nothing ever stresses her out. I love her so much and sometimes I wish I could live more like her. Everytime I see her or talk to her she is positive and happy. Her outlook on life reminds me of one of my favorite movies Pollyanna. I am happy and try to always think positivley, but sometimes it's just plain hard. She is a great inspiration!

30 Days, Day Twenty-Seven

Day 27-Pets
Well I guess the first blog didn't say my 30 days had to be consecutive. ;)

I've been looking forward to this post because I love my pets so much. They are my babies, and I couldn't live with out them! Believe it or not we have 4 animals!
It all started in 2006 with Bella our white and Orange cat. When we first got him we were told he was a girl, that is where the name Bella comes from. When we brought him to the Vet for shots we were surprised to find out that Bella was a boy. So now we call him Mr Bell or just Bella. When we moved into our apartment in 2008 we couldn't bring him with us because he was an indoor/outdoor cat and animals were frowned upon at our complex. So he stayed with my Mom. Even though we were not supposed to have a cat at our apt, we just couldn't live without a furry friend so we adopted Pinky our tabby cat. He stayed indoors and didn't cause trouble so it worked out purrfectly. He is my little snuggle buddy and I adore him! When we moved into our house we thought it would be nice to get Pinky a friend and since my Mom had become so attached to Bella we decided to let her keep him (while visiting regularly) and we adopted our beautiful Lola, she loves giving kisses. A few months later My Mom's land lord decided she couldn't have an outdoor cat because he bothered the neighbors. So we got to bring Bella home with us. My Mom was sad, we were worried about having 3 cats but in the end it worked out great! Bella loves it here in Long Beach, he has so much space to be himself. He loves when my Mom comes and brings him treats :)
We had thought about bringing a puppy into our family for quite some time, but we were worried about the cats, and didn't know if it was right for us. Then in November of 2010 our home was broken in to and all of our jewelry and electronics + some were taken from us. We then decided it was a good time to get some protection. Instead we got Bentley, haha I kid I kid he is a wonderful dog. Even though he isn't the most ferocious dog out there he makes me feel protected when I am home alone or when Josue and I are both gone from the house. Bentley is adorable, and he loves to play. Josue is smitten with him and is his snuggle buddy ;)
I'm not sure how we became such animal lovers, but now that we have these four I couldn't picture my life without a single one of them! Sometimes we even have to tell each other no when we think about adding one more to the family. As much as I want a friend for Bentley we know that four is enough for us... for now ;)

Day 24-Something you've learned
Can I skip this one?
ok fine here is a corny one :)

Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.

30 Days, Day Twenty-Three

Day 23-Favorite vacation
Josue and I have taken at least one vacation every year since we've been together, and lots of small trips in between. We haven't been to Europe yet but to lots of islands. Our favorite so far has been a Vacation we took in January 2010 for my Nursing School graduation. We flew into Puerto Rico and took a 7 day Caribbean cruise then we stayed in San Juan Puerto Rico for a few days.

Day 22-Favorite city

Hmmm favorite city?
I really want to skip this one because their are so many amazing cities to just name one. I guess I will say the city I grew up in Whittier, CA. I loved living in Whittier and if it were more freeway accessible I would probably like to live their now.

30 Days, Day Nineteen

Day 19-Something you miss

So I know it says something I miss, but what am I supposed to write about the spicy chicken bites from Jack in the Box or my favorite mascara that was discontinued? Um, no! So I am writing about the someones that I miss.

When I was twelve my softball coach passed away suddenly, I wasn't particularly close to him but it was my first experience with death. I remember feeling so strange, sad, and out of my element. My best friend Ashley was the only one that could help me through it. I can't quite explain all that she did for me but, she told me not to worry because he was in a better place in Heaven. She was there for me when I needed it! I'm not sure why but her explaining it really helped me with my first encounter with death. Two weeks later Ashley (and her sister) were murdered! My spirit was crushed. For someone to take such innocent lives was devastating. Even in all my sadness I knew that Ashley was okay, and in a better place because of her helping me just two weeks prior. My young friend was wiser than her years and helped with each death experience I came upon in the future. I have been fortunate that my experiences have been limited to the girls, a HS friend, my great-grandfather, my grandfather, and most recently my Aunt. Ashley and all the mentioned people will be in my heart forever. Our memories will never be forgotten, but I can go on with my life because Ashley helped me to be strong.
