Yesterday and today

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

Yesterday I was eating breakfast with Lilo and Stitch, today, Cheerios in the dining room.
Yesterday Tabitha was having one of the best days of her life, today she woke up early and coughed so hard she threw up.
Yesterday Chris was home on vacation, today he’s back at work.
Yesterday Daisy was cranky as heck for […]

Weekend Rush

Monday, January 29th, 2007

Today we have nothing so I can take a minute to write about the past three days.
Friday was the first (Un)Official Homeschool Day at Disneyland. Chris took a vacation day so we could all go as a homeschooling family. Not many of our friends were there, but plenty of homeschoolers showed up. We all met […]

First recital :)

Faux Friday

Thursday, January 25th, 2007

My post is titled as such because once Chris gets home, he’s home for 5 days. Yay!
The tie-dye went well last night. We used two colors, green and purple so some areas are a bit more brown. We have an event tomorrow that suggests the wearing of tie-dye which is somethign I have always […]

Project day

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Today is the day of projects. So far Tabitha has made a solar cooker and homemade house cleaners; we’re tracking the sun by tracing shadows in the driveway; Tabitha is currently outside collecting stuff for the terrarium she’s making; we’ll be recycling tonight (that’s more “cleaning the garage” than project); and we’ll be tie-dying tonight […]

Lights! Camera! Action!

Sunday, January 21st, 2007

The party is done It went off beautifully and everyone seemed to have a grand time. It was a movie theme, so everyone started off with a walk up the red carpet with Chris acting as papparazzi. Once inside, we had them vote on the movie choices to decide which one would be […]

Can’t stop til you get enough

Saturday, January 20th, 2007

Every now and then we get a series of days that are just non-stop. We had Girl Scouts Thursday night, park day first thing Friday morning, then violin Friday afternoon, hula this morning, Girl Scout Cookie Rally this afternoon, and tomorrow is Tabitha’s party. At this point I’m just waiting for the kids to go […]

mmmm, muffins

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

Yesterday got worse and worse with both kids refusing dinner (and Tabitha, at least, has always eaten pesto before). But there was good in last night. After dinner we went to the mall and ordered Tabitha’s cookie cake for her party this weekend. She had one at her 2nd birthday, but of course she doesn’t […]


Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

I’m just annoyed today. It actually started last night when I researched Tabitha’s sore throat that is not getting better. It seems, based on her symptoms, that the caused might be me (indirectly). Because of the heater being on so high and nearly constantly, I’ve apparently dried her out and now she’s suffering. Not only […]

what ails thee?

Tuesday, January 16th, 2007

Tabitha has a slight illness, but I don’t even know what it is. The main symptom is an extremely sore throat. Right now she’s only eating ice cream, broth, hot rice, and frozen orange juice pops. She also has a fever off and on, but never high enough for me to consider lowering it. I […]

I put up some new pictures from January if you’re interested.

This is how we deal with cold

Monday, January 15th, 2007

Yesterday we headed to Disneyland like programmed robots because it was Sunday. Nevermind the fact that the high was only 60 and we were getting there at 8:30am so the high was nowhere in sight. We’ve been having record overnight lows and that was evidenced by the ice on the roads and sidewalks wherever sprinklers […]

Let there be light

Saturday, January 13th, 2007

In both of our bathrooms we have a hanging light. Very outdated and I’ve wanted them replaced since we moved in, but have always had problems finding a ceiling light that is ok to use in the bathroom. We can find plenty of vanity/ wall lights, but none for the ceiling. Last night we […]

Thursday catch-up

Thursday, January 11th, 2007

I am trying to post on my site, but for whatever reason it’s not working too well right now. I even had to take the picture down on the right because I changed the caption to match new pictures and then the new pictures refused to upload so it was wonky. I’ll try again later. […]


Monday, January 8th, 2007

Today was a rather pleasant day in that it was a return to the usual routine. Tabitha and I did lessons after a rather lengthy time off, though they are abbreviated since I’m waiting for a shipment to come in. I’ve ordered a writing program (as in, working on stories and such) and also art. […]

Saturday morning

Saturday, January 6th, 2007

Chris has gotten up with Daisy on Saturday for the last month or so. Now it’s my turn so here I sit like every other morning. But our satellite is out due to all the wind yesterday so Daisy is just watching some DVDs as opposed to Playhouse Disney. She’s a TV junkie, unfortunately. But […]

Day is done

Friday, January 5th, 2007

Brownies last night went very well. Tabitha had a great time, as I assumed she would. Next time is our turn to bring snack and it’s supposed to be healthy. The only problem I have with snack during the meeting is our meetings are late, so in my opinion, everyone should have eaten dinner. […]


Friday, January 5th, 2007

As you know it took us three years to get to Disney World from the time we first decided to go until the time we actually made it there. Our next trip was to be Jan/Feb 2010. We were going to do a Disney Cruise for Tabitha’s birthday and then Disney World for Daisy’s birthday. […]

It’s finished!

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007

That is my gorgeous new entry way I finished up all the trim today and Chris put up my mirror when we came home from work. The purple is just a shade darker than it looks in the photos. I’m so happy


Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007

I know I’ve talked in the past about our not-so-good experiences with Girl Scouts. In a nutshell, it took me 5 months to have Tabitha placed in a troop; then there were basically no activities at all for the year; in the end she didn’t get the special ceremony that is kind of a big […]

the fumes are gonna get me

Monday, January 1st, 2007

Yesterday Tabitha and I went on our annual end of year shopping trip. It was a nice girls day and we also saw Charlotte’s Web. I didn’t think I would enjoy it since I don’t like the animated one I grew up with but in fact, it was quite enjoyable. The only problem with the […]
