I’m amazed

It’s been a long time since I’ve noticed the sky. It happened twice today…once while I was driving away from Red Robin and the sky was blue and pink at the same time, and a second time while I was getting into my car for a midnight run to Wal*Mart. You see, Tim Burton’s Corpse […]

I’ve been afraid to actually read my credit card statements. I am completely in bondage, a bondage that I’ve created for myself. Tonight, I had Scott help me add up simply the INTEREST on all of my credit card debts. I about peed my pants at the total. I pay $21 a day in credit […]

How precious is the time that I get to create! My focus right now is on other things, but I’m making this piece for a friend, and it’s such a wonderful fun break for me to work on! He gave me the word “robots” to start from…and soon you shall see the final! great days! […]

In celebration that I finished the the first Harry Potter book last week, I am settling down tonight to watch the movie. If that wasn’t enough to make me a geek, I’ve been looking forward to it all week, and I made myself pizza and a milkshake. I’m going to cuddle with myself on the […]

I’m already reminded several times a day that I’m single, and that the object of my affection is both far away and out of reach. I’ve tried avoiding things that remind me of him, but I find that I can’t avoid the way that I laugh, the table that needs $7.37 in change, or the […]


Magic Abraham

I think that Josh and Julie are magic. Josh made this video of Abraham’s first week… how did he do that? He had a wife who’d just had surgery, a premie newborn, the start of a new semester, a belated Christmas to celebrate, and a new job to work extra hard at…where did he find […]

Thank goodness for holidays! The Hawker girls got together on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s Day to hang out. We participated in a march in downtown Spokane, took Dad to lunch, and then had a well-deserved nap. Since it was Julia’s 20th birthday, we went out to Rancho Viejo (with the boys too!) to celebrate. […]


Happy Birthday Julia!
