My Daisy cracks me up. She just went down for her nap and insisted on taking two bouncy balls and a book on the life cycle of Monarch butterflies into bed with her.
My initial plan for last night was to take Tabitha to hula but take her home around 8:30pm or 9:00pm. In the end, […]
We attempted to take the recycling for the third time today and once again the machine was broken. I’m tired of hauling all those empty 2-liters in my trunk. Do you know how much Diet Coke I drink? Seriously, it’s packed to the gills.
My monitor took a weird dive last night and now there […]
Finally downloaded two songs I’ve been wanting, “Woman” by Wolfmother and “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor” by Arctic Monkeys. Still blasting the Raconteurs every chance I get as well. I need to listen a bit more to Pearl Jam’s new one since we’ll be seeing them in less than 2 weeks.
It’s time for everyone’s favorite game: “Find that Odor!” [queue the music and applause]
It’s not the trash, diapers, dishwasher, sink or fridge. Thank goodness it’s not too pungent and is just kind of sweet. Still. I’d like it to go away. I’ve been cleaning everything possible in my kitchen today. I even dumped salt down […]
My typing fingers are silent for a bit as I’m having a rough few days. Just depressing weather and I’m head-achy and dead tired from way too little sleep in way too long. I may need a few more days or I may post 5 things tomorrow, hard to say.
So last night one of the layouts I did was when Tabitha received her violin. The pictures are not of her actual violin because at her very first lesson her instructor told us she needed the next size up and the pictures were taken the night before. We went to exchange it and it actually […]
Yesterday I got three scrapbook layouts done, one single page and two doubles. Go me! LOL Now, if I do that many every day for the next two years, well, I still won’t be caught up. But I left my craft table open hoping I get another layout in today as well. It’s tricky fitting […]
Once Chris was home we hit the mall for the Clinique counter where I got conned by a salesgirl. Next was the Gap because they were having a BIG Sale (according to their sign). It was pretty good but we only walked away with khakis for me and a hat for Daisy (The hat deserves […]
Tabitha has rather long hair and it is prone to tangles. She has taken to sleeping in a “plait” as she likes to call it, which has definitely helped. But even the tiniest tangle is cause for “OW!” as loud as can be. Now Miss Daisy finds this quite funny and laughs hysterically at every […]
Last night we spent some time in our back yard after dinner. The girls put on a Chinese New Year Parade. How does one put on a Chinese New Year parade, you ask? Well, child number one grabs one end of the jump rope and child number two grabs the other end. They then march […]
We hit Disneyland today for what was supposed to be a 4 hour trip. We got up super early and were dead tired owing to the fact that Chris and I didn’t go to bed until 1:30am. The kids, of course, went to be much earlier and slept later. Speaking of which, why is it […]
I really need to change that pic on the right there. Speaking of which, for those that said they didn’t see a side bar at all, make sure you are on the front page http://ancfam.net. If you read through an RSS feed and then click here it takes you to a page with just that […]
We had a play date at a park yesterday. Daisy was in climbing heaven. There were three different climbing structures in three sizes, of course, she spent most of her time on the largest one. At one point she did go to the medium one and as she was climbing up to the second level […]
Why you should never fall asleep with a toddler around. I dozed off yesterday while laying on the couch, my two children happily reading in the same room as I. Perhaps 10 minutes passes, maybe even less. Suddenly I am awakened by a little person who decided it would be fun to climb on the […]
Don’t you hate when you go to read a blog and the first sentence is about how the author doesn’t feel like blogging? How do you feel when it’s the second or third sentence?
In any case, life has been going on quite swimmingly as usual. Massive heat kept us away from our favorite location, Disneyland. […]
Tabitha: Man, it’s like an oven in here [the car]
Me: That’s because Daddy’s cheap [he drives with A/C off to save gas]
Chris: I prefer the term ‘frugal’
Tabitha: Okay, then it feels frugal in here
Chris: [rummaging in fridge] What should I take for lunch?
Me: A twenty
Me: Daisy, sit down
Me: Good girl, sit down
Creative writing […]
It turns out I was wrong, it wasn’t just an okay birthday because I was making the plans, it’s because Chris wasn’t here. The moment her walked in the door, my mood improved ten-fold. We didn’t do anything special or even out of the ordinary, it was just better because he was here. Therefore, the […]
