My cell phone broke and I had to get a new one. I got this Motorola ROKR which is a phone that has a special feature of being able to download iTunes. The way it was explained to me is that it's like having an iPod and phone in one. I got a really good deal on it but it still wasn't cheap. I got it yesterday and spent a fair amount of time getting it all set up with my preferences. Then I started to download songs. Turns out I got a total of 17 on there before my computer let me know the memory is full. That's less than 2 hours worth of music. Even the smallest iPod holds at least 1000 songs. I was really surprised and I feel a little ripped off. You expect to get cheated on a phone you bought from a guy in Tijuana but not from a trusted brand like Motorola. What is the world coming to? I think I'm just complaining too much lately. I promise my next entry will be about something interesting or positive.

I had a great Easter weekend. it was so fun having everyone in my family in the same house for a whole weekend. We didn't do anything exciting. There was a lot of Super Mario Bros. 3 being played. We had another birthday party for Jaxon, this time a Cali version. We went bowling, went to church, played Phase 10, cooed over the baby, ate too much and stayed up way too late. By Sunday night, even the dogs were worn out. It was sooo nice. Gabe came up for the weekend which was comforting and strange. He's been on a big "get back together" kick lately and I don't know what to make of it. He seems sincere and he really has been putting in a lot of effort (he even went to church) but I just can't shake the feeling that the other shoe is about to drop... again. We've had a million heart to hearts and decided that we'll work on it and see how it goes. I really want things to work out but the problem is in order for that to happen, I'm going to have to put all of my energy into this again. Right now I just feel completely unable to do that and I don't know what would make me ready to dive back in again. The whole thing is compounded by the fact that my family is pretty unsupportive at this point because they don't want to see me get hurt. My whole life just feels like a big puzzle that I have to really concentrate on to put back together and I can't really seem to focus on it right now. I guess I'll just give it time and hope everything comes around. Whatever happens, it was really nice to have all the chickens in one nest for a few days and feel completely at home. I don't get to feel that way too often because all the people I love are so spread out and I really enjoyed it. I'll be sad when my sister has to leave this week but you know what they say, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder." I think that is particularly true in the case of families.

My mom just started a new job and she isn't trained completely yet so she has a lot of free time. She has been reading through my blog and she mentioned to me that she felt bad that I haven't written anything about her yet. Mama, here's your 15 minutes: I LOVE my mom. I really think she's the best mom I know. All of my firends and cousins comment on how sweet and funny she is. I really admire her courage and sticktoitiveness when dealing with life's little situations. I also really appreciate all of the nice things she does to help me out. She emailed me this picture from work the other day. I don't know where she got it but I love this bunny. He's so cute! Can you believe how big he is??? The caption said, "I think they found the Easter Bunny." I'll say! This rabbit is actually big enough for small children to sit on his lap at the mall. Here's another cute Easter cartoon she sent me:
