One year ago this am...
I lost my Mom.....
So today is 1 year that I lost my mom. Gosh.... so hard to put into words, feelings....I have so many emotions about it....still.... She was my biggest cheerleader, my confidant and really my best friend. I used to joke about it with her and tell her she was my BFF and I didn't realize until we lost her just how true that was. I miss talking with her the most......and then seeing her as the hubby and I spent SO MUCH time with her and my dad. Its been rough.

Mom and I had the best relationship and she and my dad was so a part of my life. I was proud to show her off and she has been to a many parties, bashes and gay clubs and drag shows since the 80's....She kinda grew up with me as I grew myself in my 20's and 30's and now 40's... Yep she was my BFF! And everyone thought she was SO COOL.....

I kinda took my cue from her as I have always taken friends and made them into OHANA or family-- by taking all my friends and family and making sure they all she said it was the Hawaiian way....Show your aloha! Its all we know......I know...its how we were raised! I know this is why I have a BIG OHANA...a very large and wide circle of friends through the years....Its a bit differ than what I see here and what some seem to practice... Its strange for me to see people separating friends and or families... I say learn to share... Live and learn ALOHA! I am just glad I had her as my mom....I know she guides and walks with me everyday.

I Miss u mom!

My Magzine Reading Pleasures
Well I have to admit we have really recessionized our magazine subscriptions this year. I have kept my EW, Instinct, Sunset and OUT mags. We actually get 3 OUTS per month for some insane reason as somehow we got 2 free subsections and so I pass off the extra issues to friends. We got rid of so many others as I think at one time we had 8 plus mags coming in the mail. I got rid of all the fashion and gossip mags. We get our gay news, fashion and such from OUT and Instinct. Then my garden, design and all things west from my SUNSET which I adore.

This was last week issue of EW and I have to say EW is a very good keep. It gives you the latest in TV, film, music and so much more. Its great and its a perfect cliff note version on a weekly basis for all things media... it just rocks... I highly recommend it. Had to mention it as I loved the Jason Bateman cover a few weeks ago. He is such an everyday guy and that is so refreshing these days. I wonder what his sister Justine is up to these days?
