Stuff..

My brother James to the rescue! Yesterday my brother came over befor noon and left my house at 10:30pm, wow. He let me use his computer programs to start my web pages and showed me a few things. The world wide web is so overwhelming, alot of things are easily found and used, like blogger. When it comes to hosting and all the many features and technical terms, I'm struggeling to keep my head above water. Anyway, I've spent days and hours working on web pages and I hope that it's up soon. It is just a preliminary set up. I will have to constantly update info and so on.

Unfortunatly, all the time spent on these new projects has taken away time from my favorite things to do like, clean, laundry, clean, laundry. I was even late yesterday picking up Kaleb, Oops! It ended up being a good thing. Lately Kaleb has had a bad attitude about doing things, all things, putting his shoes on for example. In the morning, granted it's early, he puts his shoes on, if they dont just glide like butter on to his feet he kicks them off, folds his arms in a pout, scouls and says, 'I can't do it!'. Homework his attitude is slightly diffrent. He acts like he is above doing it. 'No, no mom I dont have to.' It turns in to an argument and the above actions on his part.

I wondered if his teachers have had issues with this. I wrote a note to his teacher and ran into her when I was late picking up Kaleb. She mentioned that lately in class he has taken the role of police officer. I've herd him pretend like this lately, he would arrest his brother or Moqui for some pretend crime. She said it wasnt really an issue for her in her class. Get this, his P.E. teacher wants to fail my 5 year old because he acts like he doesnt have to participate if he doesnt want to! Fail, kintergarden P.E.?

I do not want to dampen or limit his imagination, or do things he doesnt want to. However the things that are asked of him are character building skills. What's a mom to do? This morning I talked to him about it. Police officers work together to catch bad guys and sometimes they have to do what others ask of them, but they work as a team and work out and run all the time so they can catch the bad guys. I think he understood, I will still have to talk to his P.E. teacher to see if there is something specific he is doing or not doing to make her want to fail him. Although, in some ways it all seems to be over rated for kintergarden. His regular teacher says he's fine at recess, probably because he can do what he wants, I'm not too worried. Just odd.

Update






It must seem like I crawled into a hole or something. The exact opposite is true! I've been consumed with creative energy, ideas and excitement in each day the unfolding of new opportunities and avenues of expression. Recently I went to the local YMCA to pick up on yoga where I left it in 2006, to my dismay the instructor had an accident and there would be no class. The fitness director that brought us the news asked if anyone would be interested in going through a few moves. I said that I would be happy to, if he had a t.v. and instructional video. Long story short, I volunteered to teach beginners yoga class Tues. and Thurs, from 10-10:55.

The fantastic part of this news is I am not only getting sponsorship to become a certified yoga instructor, but my Reiki business will benefit as well. The volunteer director there laid out some ideas and ways of educating people in the community about Reiki and my business through open houses and workshops. I'm sure you can imagine how great it feels to have outside support of your work, ideas and offer a venue for future efforts. Awesome!

In case the word has not gotten to you the viewer of this blog yet. I have now finished Reiki level 3 training and will be working toward Master/ Teacher certification. This of course take time, apprenticeship, and patience all of which I look forward to putting forth in order to bring Reiki to as many lives as possible, one person at a time, dog, cat, baby etc... I have a home studio all set up, cards, flyers, forms and brochures, all of this has kept me very busy.

Okay, so I am working on putting together a website and I don't have a clue how to get my ideas on a navigating website, so this is a casual call for help, is there anyone out there who can help? Mean while, if you want to know more about Reiki, who it's for, what it is, email me and I will send you a brochure that explains it all.

My kids:

I am always observant of what my kids take interest in, partially to monitor content, but also to encourage their individual growth. A flyer was left on the truck at a the wal-mart we were shopping at, Ethan noticed it and asked about it. It was for martial arts. Ethan's face perked looking at the suite the boy was wearing. I asked him if he wanted me to call and see if they taught 4 year olds, "Yeah, that would be cool mom! Then they can send us a suite for me!" I'm sure Kaleb will probably want to go as well, although it's likely it's just because Ethan is.

Moqui has had a rough time, she has two new teeth on the bottom. The last week she would wake up in the middle of the night with pain. This was not fun for any of us. She was inconsolable, even after orijell, rocking and cuddling she just had to cry it out, keeping me and Adam up. During the day she was fussy, but with a little Reiki and allot of snuggles she would just fall asleep in my arms. We were tired up until the last few days, I even kept Kaleb home one day because I could not get up. Aside from that she's cuter than ever.

Adam has been sick this last week, I wish there was more I could do. When he's unhappy or sick, we might as well all be sick and miserable. He's been good about resting and allowing his body to rejuvenate, I asked if he wanted Reiki, he said no. Sometimes being sick serves a higher purpose, I know he usually enjoys getting Reiki, so it didn't hurt my feelings or anything. Anyway, that's about it for now, I will keep you all up to date as often as possible.

Bust a Move!

I am energized tonight. PBS has great programs all the time. Tonight they had featured the young brother of the Marley legacy, Damian Marley. Not only does he have this funky reggae, hip hop, fresh sound, but he's in my opinion beautiful! I think I'm in love. Anyone who knows me is already aware of my love is deep for the man Bob Marley. I also like Modestyahu for the same reason that I can get into Damain's work. They combine great music with great message, giving praise to Creator for this life and it's delivered with "one love".

So energized by his music, I found myself in my pj's, in the middle of the room movin' and shakin' what my momma gave me! Girls, you know how great it feels to move like that with no bra on, LIBERATING, or painful, depending on your cup size. Yet still liberating because you feel alive and inspired, right! Anyway, I thought I would share the love. The PBS show was way better than this video. So if you like what you see then go to the pbs.org site.


Enjoy!

PEACE 2007

The last few days of 2006 were really great! I spent time with my grandparents whom I love very much, went to Emi's shower to spend time with more family I enjoy so much. I was also lucky enough to spend one on one time with Emily and her awesome husband Brandon, talking and getting to know each other better. They spent New Years Eve with us at our house. We cooked pinto bean soup (my favorite dish), watched movies, laughed and joked, enjoyed a private show of all of Moqui's best tricks. At the new year I gave Emily and Brandon an angel card reading and I was able to share with them some of my favorite art by Alex Gray. Everyone should view his art in my opinion, he's phenomenal.

My prayer and hope for this year is for PEACE!!! Peace in the middle east, Africa, in America, in our homes. That prosperity and love will be the agenda of our people. I have looked threw many clips that I thought were profoundly touching, the type that carry a message. One was John Lennon's Merry Christmas video ("R" rated), this shows the life of our brothers and sisters living with war in their homes and also the suffering of families and children as an effect of war. You should know that if you chose to watch this video the real images paint an ugly picture of reality! My intention is only to share a small part of why I passionately disagree with this particular war and to encourage others who feel the same way to use this medium to share and voice themselves as well. Also to inspire action towards ending the war, either threw prayer, protest, or just being informed enough to know why this war is wrong and telling others who ASK about it. I in no way wish to push my views on others and I have the utmost respect for other peoples opinions, so please if you have something to say email me.

This video is touching with a message of love and hope. It made me cry and laugh and just feel good. No worries this one is "G" rated. I love you all and wish the best for all my brothers and sisters this year.
