My New Photographer...

Hello my sweet friends! Hope you had a lovely weekend! As you know, I've been totally slacking on this blogging thing, but I think I'm getting my mojo back. I feel like I want to post and share many good things again...

First of all, I've found a new photographer who can take my picture. I tend to shy away when it comes to taking self-portrait. I can't take my own pictures unless it's 100% necessary because iI feel like I'm being self-important. I can smile at the camera as long as there's someone on the other side, telling me to smile....

Anyway, my oldest Ju Ju was playing with my phone the other day and called my name. "Mommy!" - I looked and there she was taking pictures of me. She took about 5 of them and one came out pretty good. So, I declared Ju Ju as my new photographer!!!! And she loves it. Maybe she can take my pictures of dress up. LOL.


Also, I have two Starbucks I frequent - one has a drive through. A good friend of mine works there and when I picked up my iced-latte, I realized she put a smiley face on the lid. She does this type of trick all the time, but I thought I'd snap a pic and share it.... It definitely put a smile on my face...

I took these pictures of my daughters last week after Ju Ju had the Back to School Night. Ju Ju is going to be the 1st grader tomorrow and Soapy is going to be a pre-K. This will be Soapy's first school. That means, I'm going to have handful of free time for the first time in six years! I can't believe it. I'm excited, but kind of sad at the same time.
I only work two days a week and I've been trying to find the timing to tell my boss that I'm quitting in a few weeks. I know I need to give them 2 week notice which gives me only a week left to give them the news. I'm so dreaded about that, but I want to focus my energy on my paintings and my kids, so that's what I have to do....


So how was your weekend? What's been going on with your life?????

Cute photos (mother and daughters!). Good luck with moving into a new chapter in your life - sounds like it will be a fantastic one.

Oh wow, quitting your job is a bi step, but good for you! And how cute are the kidlets (as usual), and that pic of you is great! I wish Juju could be around me to take my picture! :)

Dorkys Ramos said...

Cute photos! And good luck with the news. If you feel it's what's best for you and your family then you'll find the strength to tell them.

Hello! Look at those lovely girls. Yes, during the summer holidays, it is the busiest season for mothers and wives. Me too. During the Obon there are so many things to take care and my children are with us. But the happiest moment for me and my husband. I'm not a good blogger these days. Enjoy your days.

I can't wait for the day when I can walk in to my boss' office and give him the letter of resignation. But right now I can't. Our mortgage is so big that my husband can't pay it by himself. So I have to keep this job even it's really getting me depressed and sucking the life out of me. But I'm looking for new opportunities and I know soon I'll find something.

Funny the smily face. I also put smily face on people's key cards to their rooms (I work at a hotel) when I give them free upgrade to a suite and don't tell them about it at check in. So it's a big surprise when they walk in to their suite. I do it for people that give me a good vibe.

By the way, you look great!

Totally cute (the girls). I know what you mean about being excited and sad about the girls going out into the world.

Quitting your job, wow, I just got pregnant so that I could take a break , lol. I hope it works out.

Katz: With this economy, I know I was lucky to have my job. But I can't spend five days including Saturday away from my kids, especially when their daddy is gone. You'll be able to do that, when the time is right. Good luck babe! xo
