Eve again

Sunday, December 31st, 2006

Yesterday we all went out first thing to get our errands done. But from the moment we left the house Daisy was declaring we were going out to dinner so we knew food was in the forecast. First stop was Lowes to buy paint and accessories. Tomorrow we plan to pain our entryway. We painted […]

A new day

Friday, December 29th, 2006

Good morning! Much better today. Chris stopped at Baja Fresh on the way home yesterday to pick up some soup for me. When he came home, he took over laundry and listening to chattering kids duty while I laid on the couch. Then off to the store he went with Miss Daisy and he […]

Head pounding
Eyes burning
Nose clogged
Throat scratchy
Body aching
Not a good day so far.

Post Christmas

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

Today Miss Daisy is mad because I won’t let her watch “Wiggles Christmas” and the Christmas books are put away. She kept asking “what doing, Mama?” over and over yesterday as she watched me put away all the decorations. The house is stuffed to the gills with new stuff and she wants the decorations back […]

From us to you

Sunday, December 24th, 2006

Chris and I stayed up until midnight wrapping gifts, but we were tired and going slow and also distracted by “Scrooged” so we didn’t get quite as much done as we had hoped. This morning Chris took the kids to the park so I could finish up. I then met them at the park and […]

done, whether we are or not

Saturday, December 23rd, 2006

Last night we took the kids to my in-laws’ so Chris and I could get in more shopping. Then we headed out this morning to finish up and also get the food we need for Christmas Day. I was supposed to go out again but made the decision that what we have will suffice. I’m […]

Now *that* was a concert

Thursday, December 21st, 2006

Oh Axl was good, very, very good. I don’t so much feel that I went to a Guns N’ Roses concert, more like an Axl Rose concert since I didn’t know any of the band members save for one keyboardist. Though Izzy did come out and play too for 4 or 5 songs. There was […]

who needs a title?

Wednesday, December 20th, 2006

I got all my cards addressed last night, then Chris did the return addresses and together we signed them all. It was late and we were rather tired hopefully they all say the right thing and all have a picture. I probably missed a few people, but let’s hope if I did, those people didn’t […]

thoughts and a pic

Tuesday, December 19th, 2006

I jammed my left thumb yesterday in such a way as to snap my nail off much further down than it should be. Now it’s bloody and painful. Just looking at it makes it hurt let alone actually using it.
I’m less enamored with Family Fun this month because their kid friendly recipe is frickin […]

The return of Mr. F

Monday, December 18th, 2006

My gardner decided to show up today. He told me he forgot last week. Problem is, he was supposed to be here 2 weeks ago. Then he left without asking for my check. Bizarre. Gardners are often times more trouble than they are worth; on the other hand, the overgrown palm tree now looks normal […]

Let’s party!

Sunday, December 17th, 2006

Yesterday was Tabitha’s Christmas party! The initial plan was to not tell her about it until about an hour before the guests arrived, but I had to chuck that idea because Friday I had to shop for tons of stuff for the party and also all the baking that had to be done. Plus she […]


Thursday, December 14th, 2006

Last night we went for a tour of a candy store so they could show us how candy canes are made. While it seemed like the ideal holiday activity, it was not. There appeared to be two very large groups there, not just our group. So all the kids were told to squash in to […]

I gave her the chocolate anyway

Wednesday, December 13th, 2006

Daisy has taken to singing lately. She sings all the time, even making up her own songs like “Everybody’s coming, doot, doot” and such. I’ve been meaning to catch it on video for a couple weeks and finally did it yesterday. Of course the kid didn’t feel like cooperating, but the video I did get […]

Now that was a weekend

Tuesday, December 12th, 2006

Friday evening, Chris and Tabitha went off to the halau’s Christmas party. Daisy and I stayed home because I was pretty sure Daisy was coming down with a cold and she had only slept 40 minutes at nap time that day. I definitely made the right decision as I found myself counting down the minutes […]

Day 2

Monday, December 11th, 2006

It’s been a while, but my Disney World bug is back so I wrote up a report for our second day in Disney World. Photos may be clicked to enlarge.
Sunday, September 17, 2006- Day 2- Disney’s MGM Studios
Up at what felt like the crack of dawn to us but we finally made it out to […]

Park day

Friday, December 8th, 2006

We had a most excellent time at the park today. Violin was cancelled for this week so we planned a picnic for the park and ended up staying three and a half hours. And I didn’t feel the need to look at the time even once, that’s a big deal for me. We had two […]

not quite as planned

Tuesday, December 5th, 2006

Our play date turned into a park date which was fine, but then Daisy took a marathon nap and I ended up waking her up 10 minutes after we were supposed to be at the park. Factor in changing her and drive time (it’s far) and we were 45-minutes late. By then it was starting […]

thoughts as they spill forth

Tuesday, December 5th, 2006

I did it wrong this year by spreading out the decorating. Now it seems like a chore and the joy is not there. Never again. Next year, all in one day from start to finish.
Daisy charmed everyone with her dancing at Kindermusik today. She was really on, that’s for sure.
The one kid who usually bugs […]

It’s only a flesh wound

Saturday, December 2nd, 2006

I have suffered two head injuries in as many days. Yesterday I was purposefully striding from one room to another and had forgotten about a high cabinet that was open. I smacked into it so hard that I literally did what the books always say and went reeling, grabbing at the walls to prevent me […]

Break out the advent calendars

Friday, December 1st, 2006

Today Christmas officially begins I like to wait until the 1st because that’s after Chris’s birthday, I don’t want him overshadowed. He did have to work yesterday as he took his birthday day off back in September in order to extend our trip by one day. Once he was home he opened […]
