Don't Worry Its All Good

From Track Side with Melli & Other Stuff
Don't worry it's all good let me tell you why!!! I have a great job working in a great hospital with a great staff.
I gave a great husband Brian who after 29 is my best friend he still makes my heart swell when Im with him and miss him when he's gone.
My father Jerry 91 is doing good for a guy his age he is an amazing man whos had an amazing life Im very lucky that I still have my dad around.
I have wonderful in laws Ann and Rob they have always treated me like there real daughter what a blessing they are.
Although I live away from the one place on planet earth Orange County and the beach, I love living in the small town of Boulder's the lil town that built the 7th wonder of the world Boulder Dam, I love being away from the insane Vegas.
It's all GOOD
Today was the first day of testing at Dayton seems Hendricks cars all did well, I'm not really thrilled about racing as I once was guess thats what happens when you get old like me lol. I miss Mark in the 5 and I know I'm going to draw the IRE of some, but Kasey Kahne just doesnt fit there he really doesn't fit anywhere.
This isn't personal but with years of watching drivers work/driver their asses off and attain top status in cup Kasey has not done so, In my humble openion.
Kasey didn't do much with his last team, and he only gets up on the wheel when he needs to impress, that my dear friends has don't happend to me lol
Mark my words on this and watch the 5 this and tell me that Mr. Hendrick made a mistake.
Ciao for now hugs

Happy 2012

I want to wish you all a happy 2012 may you all have a great year. I don't make resolutions but I am going to get into shape this year or better shape I slipped on 11 due to a year long funk, which I'm refusing to have in 2012 lol.
Brian and I are doing great busy with work and just life in general....Dad is 91 and doing well, slow but well and as for me I'm good with a new attitude.
I'm going to spruce up our house which will take most of the year I really am in the mood to shake things up with coastal living colors bring a splash of the ocean in the house I love the ocean as I born in San Diego and I really miss it, so that will be nice when it's finished.
For our vacation we went to Norfolk VA staying at the Colony in VA Beach which we's a very very nice condo complex right on the beach. The weather was great our good friends Gary and Maria kept us busy and we had a blast we miss them but keep close on my NEW IPAD 2 which I love love.
Brian traded his 2004 Avalanche for a 2009 and let me tell ya that is a totally cool ride I love it. It's sea foam green with the chrome package, running boards, burl wood on the dash and center console, it's bling lol.
And my kitchen is all updated with a new 5 burner refinished hood and a new double oven all in black, I don't like the look of stainless steele, guess thats due to working around it in the ER for 35yrs lol.
Last but not least on the Nascar front...2012 will be interesting for all teams. Some are underfunded, same as with Rusty Wallace Racing he's closed his NNS shop for 2012 sad sad. Kevin Harvick Inc closed the CTS shop and sold it to RCR.
There is an abundance of drivers needing full time rides or just rides period that is also due to the lack of funding. Roush Racing has parked the #6 for the year :( that breaks my heart as that was the car Mark Martin drove for 18yrs, oh well we all need to stay positive and just pray our Country continues to rebound.
That's it for now and I know I've said this before but this time I mean it I am back and I WILL rant this year you can count on that.
Ciao for now and have a blessed week
