beach time

Monday, July 31st, 2006

 Yesterday we headed out to Cabrillo Beach because nearby the Black Pearl is docked so it can be redressed for the Pirates of the Caribbean 3.
The first pic is just from my camera zoomed in maximum and the second is zoomed in and then putting it up the lens of the binoculars. Both images can […]

Swashbuckling Anniversary

Friday, July 28th, 2006

We chose a Pirate theme for our tenth anniversary. Trendy,  yes, but who cares? Fun! I dropped the kids off and went to pick up Chris after he got off work so our night could  begin. Disneyland, of course. First stop was the hat shop to get our pirate mouse ears. Next stop was in front […]

simply to write

Thursday, July 27th, 2006

I was thinking today how many people who don’t actually know Chris know anything about him simply by reading my blog. I know there are plenty of wives out there who use their blog as a venting tool and merely bitch about their husbands with the occasional nice word tossed in. That’s not my style […]

Great, I’ve ruined another one

Me: Oh, darn.
Daisy: Sh*t
Me: Um, no, I said ‘darn’
Daisy: Sh*t
Me [thinking]: crap!

a timeline

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

Saturday 10:00pm- AC turns on and only warm air blows out. We discuss and try it again to no avail. Go to bed because what else are we going to do?
Sunday am- AC still doesn’t blow cold. Chris cleans our fan and calls his parents to ask about borrowing any extra fans. We spend time […]

Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot

Monday, July 24th, 2006

Our a/c is out. We’re hitting close to 100 degrees every day with 70-something% humidity and our a/c decides to quit working.
We sought refuge at my in-laws’ yesterday. We went there to pick up some extra fans -we only have one- and stayed awhile since Daisy was asleep and there house felt so […]

We slathered on the sunscreen, donned our swimsuits and headed out to a new location for today’s park day. This particular park has fountains that they run from 11:00am-6:00pm daily in the summer. Except they didn’t. We saw fountains. We saw loads of people in swimsuits. We did not see water. Needless to say, the […]

I’ve been meaning to mention forever about a new show on USA Network called “Psych.” You see it was created and is being written by a friend of mine, Steve Franks who long time readers will know I’ve mentioned as the lead singer of The Friendly Indians (the band of our friends that Chris and […]

I subscribe to an email newsletter than sends me little tid-bits about my baby’s growth once a week. This week is about talking. It says, and I quote:
“You can label sensations, as in, “The sidewalk feels hot,” or objects: “See the airplane?” When you push your child in a stroller or walk with her in […]

quick rundown

Tuesday, July 18th, 2006

Chris had plans with a friend after work on Friday so the girls and I picked up food and headed to his work to join him for lunch so we’d get to see him that day. It was nice and something I’d do again, but maybe not on a Friday with traffic.
Saturday morning Tabitha […]

More PJ

Friday, July 14th, 2006

Other things I wanted to mention about the Pearl Jam concert.
We arrived early because we had to pick up our tickets at the box office and weren’t sure how the lines would be. Zero lines so we spent the time walking around and around the Forum. At one point I saw someone who looked so […]

Word of advice

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

If your one year old thinks the words ‘bathroom’ and ‘potty’ are synonymous, perhaps you should think twice before asking her to put something in the bathroom.
Toilet: 1
Barrette: 0

Three Pearls

Tuesday, July 11th, 2006

Pearly Shells
Saturday was our Halau’s annual hoike. It’s been a long week of practice and Saturday was also a very long day before the start of the show. When all was said and done though, the show was wonderful. I mainly only saw Tabitha’s 4 dances as I spent a lot of time downstairs with […]

Again with the unconnected thoughts

Friday, July 7th, 2006

We watched the first two episodes of Rockstar:Supernova last night. First off, stupid ass name. Secondly, Jason Newsted and Gilby Clarke look horrific. Third, Fourth and so forth, Dave Navarro is rivaling Ryan Seacrest in the race for title of Grand Metrosexual on a Reality Series. We watched 2.5 hours of the show in one […]

17 hours and counting

Monday, July 3rd, 2006

I’ve been up since 3:45am, how about you? Two sick kids. One of which will only take mom (that’s me) and of course that’s the one that was up the most. I’m dead tired and about ready for bed myself now that we’ve got half the offspring in bed for the night.
But despite my absurd […]

Tabitha shared and now both Daisy and I are sick. I’m in the middle and Daisy is at the beginning. Good news is it seems to be a fairly mild cold.
We surprised Tabitha with her Crocs today. She’s been anxious to get them. There was only one pair in her size and they were purple […]
