I have had the flu for days and I am grateful for it today...because I could stay in bed not being able to do anytihng else but cry. Michael woke me up and told me that David died. While I was struggling with the flu I lost the most important person in my life...I cannot stop crying. I have a flu, migraine, and throwing up...and I lost Bowie. I am in shock....
WGB told me this quote when he told me that David died: "If you're ever sad, just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and YOU somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie!" by Dean Podesta It is not comforting...my life has changed.
I can only imagine his families loss...he meant so much to me in my life...they have to be frozen. I know I am.
Happy Birthday David! May 69 be the best! I downloaded the rest of Black Star today, most interesting album he has done since The Man who sold the World and Low...
WGB and I had a nice lunch at Casa Lupe, I had chicken nacho's and then in the afternoon wasn't feeling so great...all night long...a hard fast flu...I have been throwing up all night long! SO bad I never want to eat again!
This morning the girl flew out to go home to South Korea again. I get SO sad when she leaves because it is going to be a full year before we see her again...and this year for some reason it just feels worse. I hate it. I am happy SHE is happy I am bummed for us.
I had an appt with the rheumatologist today...it wasn't good news. She believes I have Fibro. However, the only good news was that she didn't look at me like I had 3 heads...but my body has been dealing with my thyroid issues as well and menopause. It is SO hard to figure out what the hell is going on. She referred me to a Endo...so that is next...I am just tired of feeling this way.
The super cool Lindsay Planner from Adorn It came today! I am excited to work in this!!! I bought an extra one as well...it may be going to a cousin!
It has every month with one of her moon girls with the month theme! And I am going to use it for my Tangie Baxter planner pages this year! So excited!
Each one is on watercolor paper so you can color each month! So much fun!
David Bowie's new video came out...kinda creepy and I am trying to figure it all out...but it was disturbing to my soul!
It was nice to get a visit from the kids and for Jaclyn to meet Twinkle. We had a nice dinner at Amici's but our friend was not at work so she didn't get to meet my kids...It was SO fun to watch Twinkle eat real food at the table! And we all had a great laugh when Vernon tried to set up the playpen!
Have decided to go with a blunt cut and still have my shaved hair underneath to help cool me off...trying to grow it out this year. I finally found Vicki Howells Chunky 3 hour cowl, going to try that pattern. I have been wanting to make some really chunky cowls this year with some yarn I have on hand....
I also was able to set up my new waterproof iPod...
So I love how FAT my daily journal got in 2015...but I think I am going to just do straight journal and collage and not add a lot of the art and stuff in it this year....You can see the Pink 2016 journal...and can tell just how much I expanded...still not as fat as 2014 was!
Today is my daughters birthday she is 35! Holy smoley! When I was 35 she was 17! Where has the time gone? We have always had our struggles and issues that I won't go in to... they are too prickly but I have always loved her.
In a way the poor kid is a mini-me. Over the last few years she has been exploring her art side...and that just makes me so happy. I hope that she passes the love of art on to her son as well to keep it all going.
All I want for her is to "Spread her wings like a mighty eagle and fly. You are flawless and can do anything!"
I am not a perfect mother and I will never be. You are not a perfect daughter and you will never be. But put us together and we will be the best mother and daughter we would ever be.
