Helping Oklahoma

21 May


With my help in creating the site my kids have started a fundraiser.  While watching the news last night they were deeply affected by the devastation in Oklahoma and the number of lives affected by this.  They wanted to find a way to help them so I assisted them in creating this site.  Please visit and donate in any way you can at http://www.crowdrise.com/helpingoklahoma/fundraiser/lisaalaniz.  The proceeds go directly to the American Red Cross which in turn will help the victims in Oklahoma.   All help will be greatly appreciated and it will allow the children to feel like they made a difference.  Thank you for your help.

Summer 2013 Nature Photography Contest

20 May

I have elected to enroll my son in a nature photo contest.  What I like about this is that it’s completely free and offered through the city we live in.  This is good on so many levels.   It allows my son to try something new, photography.  Through the course of this he will of course learn about the importance and beauty of nature.  It also will give us some good quality, bonding time which is always important.  I’m excited to see if he will win one of the many prizes that will be awarded in August.  I will keep you guys posted with pics and details of our nature journey this summer.

I'm going to be so wise when I finally pull out of this.

Sad. Funny. Truthful.

Combining depressing thoughts with comedy and brutal honesty makes for some interesting writing. I know at least one person other than me agrees so that's good enough for me.
