10 Reasons I Might Be A Vampire….

Lately I seem to stay up all night more often than not. I’m only averaging 3 hours of sleep a night. I’m beginning to believe my kids are right when they say I must be part vampire. Lets check and see.

How Do You Know If You Are A Vampire

1. Vampires stay up all night……….all the time, my sleep cycle has always been backwards….check

2. Vampires will burn if exposed to the sun……..more than five minutes and I will have blisters…check.

3. They can command you with their voice and eyes ……. Yes I can……(I’m a mommy)…check.

4. They do not cast a reflection….  I try never to look in the mirror if possible because it is scary, so maybe I don’t have a reflection……….check.

5. Vampires transform into another creature……my husband would agree that I do, at least once a month…..check.

6. Vampires promise mind altering sex……check :D

7. Vampires like to bite……only a little, I swear….check.

8. They need blood to survive……..yeah! 8 pints…..check.

9. Vampires can be killed if you drive a stake through their heart…..gruesome but I’m pretty sure I would too….check.

10.Vampires drink the blood of humans……what!…..wait!……no!

Okay, I guess I’m not a vampire. Because I draw the line at drinking blood (even Charlaine Harris’ True-Blood) although I do like my steak rare…hmm. But you have to admit 9 out of 10 is darn close. ha! ha! ha!

Winter In California….

Never let anyone convince you California is always warm and sunny, it isn’t. What a great way to start the new year and I mean that in a good way. We got snow! Yay! I love it when it snows here. It is only enough to play in and it goes away after a day or 2 before you get tired of it. My son in-law M built the ice sculptures you see. He is very talented in almost everything.













This is my grand puppy Jazz. She is not too happy with the snow.
















And this is M showing off. See I said he was talented and he is a musician and music teacher so of course he would make notes. We have had a lot of fun in the snow. I wish it did this every year.
