The perfect PBJ

How to make the perfect PBJ, as dictated by a 3 year old.....
The ingredients;
Frozen Wheat Bread(the spongy kind),
Skippy Super Chunk Peanut Butter,
Boysenberry Jam

1 Granny
1 Rufus(the dog)

Drag the chair over to the island, get the frozen bread out, Take out two pieces, place on plate. Get Jam from Fridge. Get Peanut Butter from pantry.
Climb on chair, direct said Granny to open Peanut butter jar, hold at angle so I can watch, scoop out peanut butter with knife. Then cover every inch of bread, leaving no bread showing.
Open Jam Jar, let me smell, and scoop out a huge lump of jam with spoon, spread on other piece of bread. "Hand 'poon to me for the lickin".
Then kiss both pieces of bread(making the kiss noise) put back on plate, use knife to cut into triangles(see attached photo).
Make the granny carry it upstairs to our office, place on table turn on Sponge Bob... TADA!!! Perfect-- Spank You Granny!!

How to mend a broken heart

After a year of feeling like shit. I finally got a name put to it. Coronary Heart Disease. Months of fighting, pleading. They finally listened. I saw a Cardio Dr. 3 weeks ago, got the diagnosis, drugs and told to go home and rest. 3 days later.. told surgery is scheduled. Can't take the risk. 
2 weeks later, splayed out in an operating room,  tube being snaked up and through my body. (yes it hurt like a mofo). I had a chance to experience the fine line between life and death. Every time the ballon expanded, chest pain to kill a cow. Finally after 45 minutes of expand, reset, expand, they seated the stints and fixed the 90% blockage.
Amazed I didn't have a heart attack(ok astounded) they seal me up, put me back together.. Tell me it was close, but my life as I knew it is over.. New diet. Exercise. (like duh..  what did they think kept me alive all this time. *rolls eyes*) 
Basically the upshot is, ya can't choose your genes, but you can choose how you live your life. 
So back to five miles a day... Thank God I can still breath, and I'm not worm food. 
Ohh and BTW.. red wine can save your life... just sayin
So be good humans, love each other. Make me proud to know you.  I love you all.. -- Huggies   Colette Tuteur

How to measure your life

It has come to my attention recently; that a lifes, after all is said and done, is not measured by our deeds or accomplishments, but rather by our dreams, realized & unrealized.
Our dreams, goals and aspirations lead the way for future generations to be inspired and lead.
To judge a life buy deeds and or actions places you in the precarious position of Judge & Jury....
I find my self in the unique position of looking back over my life. I am thankful for my dreams realized and unrealized, the friends and family I have. I love you with all my heart and soul.

Thank you all, I am honored to be in your lives... Isobela Capalini/Colette Tuteur

The Great Donut Debacle

As I have mentioned before everyone in my family thinks they are funny.
Not just a little funny. But, the kind of fall on the ground gut laugh funny. (and face it sometimes they are).

I have boys, they eat everything in site. No food substance is safe. All food products are at risk and subject to ingestion, unless properly marked NOT FOR YOU, with appropriate name. (aka belongs to MOM don't eat!)

With this in mind.....
Donuts are a rare commodity in my house. I never buy them. If they want them then it's up to them to go and purchase them.
My daughter, (the kind of person that can eat ANYTHING and still weigh 103) bought 2 cream filled donuts, ate one, put the other in a bag with name etc. --"DON'T EAT MINE-" Figuring that it would be plain enough .
Oldest son came home, and like a bullet he was face to face with that donut. Warnings were issued. But as we all know children never listen.
This child's mind works differently. The torture of his sister is and always has been foremost in his mind, anyway he can, he will.
With camera in hand, glass of milk, he proceeded to document the ingestion of that cream filled donut. WITH play by play cards. Each one written out, placed in front of the donut, giving the full play by play on bite number and taste description. (ummmmmyummmmmmyyyyy) (Creammy) etc.. 8 pictures in all. Showing the demise of that poor donut.
Now most would of finished the donut. Not him. Leaves a small last bite. Prints out the images, attaches them to the bag. Puts the bag back into the fridge. Leaves it for her to find.

Roll forward to 1am, discovery of said donut. (or rather remains of said donut).
Imagine 104 lbs of fury, unleashed on 6' 180 lb drunk guy. Ice cubes, water, pitcher, nail polish, blush, lipstick. And yes some place there are pictures.....

What a year can do with your life!

As we roll through life, and cross paths with people we don't always realize the full impact that they will have on our lives.

We all have goals and aspirations that go unstated in the backs of our minds.

Then once in a while we get dropped in a position to realize those aspirations and dreams.

Such is my life as of late.

I have a group of friends that are amazing. They have changed my life. Where else can you find people that are as nuts as you are, and let you have your way with their club.
I started here in SL a year ago. Wanting nothing more then to have 1-2 friends, a small piece of land, job and be semi able to build.
WOW boy did I over acheive. I have more then 3 friends, a kick ass job as an Officer for Friendly Fire. DJ job. To top it off, I own half a sim with my partner/husband!! AND YES I CAN BUILD!
My friends~ I love you all!
