back in the driver’s seat

Friday, March 30th, 2007

Last night after dinner, Chris and Daisy went up to the car place to get my tire replaced while Tabitha and I walked up there. We stopped at Juice it Up, walked on the hiking/horse trail and had a lovely chat the whole way. We talked a bit about places she wants to go in […]

more clothes

Thursday, March 29th, 2007

I have two catalogs that I received recently and was planning on getting a couple summer outfits for the girls (mainly Tabitha). Last night we went walking at the mall just for the heck of it and I found several things at Old Navy and Children’s Place for both kids and Baby Gap for Daisy. […]

While Chris watches Lost and I sit here with my headphones, I must remember not to surf myspace because of all the embedded music. Usually my speakers are off so I don’t even notice, but now I’m listening to Chris’s “chill tunes” list and it was quite jarring to have Katrina and the Waves burst […]

I think, for once in my life, I’m actually getting good sleep. It’s taking me more than 1 minute to fall asleep at night and I wake up of my own accord around the same time everyday. I can’t tell you the last time this happened. Oh, and I don’t remember a single, solitary dream. […]

We’re are not currently sitting at Kindermusik singing the hello song. Why? Because my car has a most decidedly flat tire.
Bad car-ma strikes again!

another weekend, another monday

Monday, March 26th, 2007

Very nice weekend, though we didn’t do much. Saturday morning we slept in and eventually I made breakfast. It was late enough that we called it brunch and just skipped out on lunch. This weekend I made eggs, beans and rice fried together and topped with cheese. Chris and I put it in tortillas whereas […]


Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

I’ve been dragging for a couple days, just kind of going through the motions. But today Daisy and I walked in the sun while Tabitha was in book club and that felt wonderful! Unfortunately, I had sore muscles and a pounding headache by the time dinner was done. So Chris took both kids to his […]

whine and cheese

Wednesday, March 21st, 2007

Daisy fell asleep late and woke up early so she’s in a bit of a whine mood this morning. It rained last night, not sure if it will continue, but in any case, the park Daisy plays in while Tabitha is at baton will surely be too wet and dirty to play which will undoubtedly […]

I’m so in

Yay for Pirates!

Tuesday Talk

Tuesday, March 20th, 2007

I’m a bit bored and really what better time to post. Usually Tabitha and I do lessons during nap time on Tuesday, but we jumped right in on them when we got home from Kindermusik and finished most everything. We have two short science lessons and one history test left but that’s it. Right now […]

Yesterday I was doing lessons with Tabitha and she decided she wanted to do lessons with Daisy. What ensued was 45 minutes of cuteness. Tabitha got it just right. Her language was appropriate (meaning at the right level to be understood by a two year old), her expectations were just right and she was flexible […]

I keep mine home on purpose

Monday, March 19th, 2007

Rosie mentions all four kids were home on snow day, she is asked what she did with them all day. She gave some ideas of what she did to keep them occupied while the underlying feeling was how hard it is for parents when kids are out of school. How is it different than a […]

back to Monday

Monday, March 19th, 2007

We had a pretty good weekend. Friday was my MIL’s birthday so we went out to dinner. For the first time ever, Daisy sat on Chris and bugged him throughout the whole meal so I actually got to eat. I think it comes from her sitting next to Chris at home for meals. Usually she’s […]

Or- “Signs My Grocery Store Does Not Want Me To Shop There”

They raised the price of my and Tabitha’s milk
One month later they stopped carrying it completely
They have now raised the price of Daisy’s milk
They cut the Morning Star Farms selection in half
They stopped carrying dill sandwich pickles
They stopped carrying Tabitha’s favorite variety of soy […]

I put a couple braids in Daisy’s hair today and thought the results were sweet.

Then I decided to video her for my own amusement. I asked her to do a couple faces because she has the best angry face, but then she got upset with me in the middle and she does it on her […]

no sunshine

Friday, March 16th, 2007

So we watched “Little Miss Sunshine” Tuesday night. Eh, I wasn’t feeling it. I didn’t hate it and don’t feel like it was an utter waste of my time, but it didn’t entertain me and that’s all I look for in a movie. Next up, “The DaVinci Code.” Chris read the book and loved […]

What time is it?

Thursday, March 15th, 2007

My youngest child thinks the time fell back. She’s now waking at 5:30 in the morning which is an hour before her normal wake-up time. But since we sprung forward, her body *should* think that’s 4:30am which is obviously gobs too early to wake. And the kid is loud with her displeasure when I tell […]

By Tabitha,
Hiya! Just a little report on the day. It was a pretty normal day. I tried to play two games with daisy, but they didn’t end up how the rules said.We played Pretty Pretty Princess withe a new twist, and Spinning Wishes arguing a little bit. After that, Daisy went down for a nap, […]

Laughter as medicine

Monday, March 12th, 2007

Nothing, and I mean nothing, can pull me out of being down like watching clips of “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” on YouTube. I’m sitting here with my headphones laughing my patoot off while my family thinks I’ve gone insane. We’re waiting for Daisy to conk out so Tabs can go to bed. And then […]

funky cold medina

Saturday, March 10th, 2007

In a bit of a funk today, think it started yesterday. It’s not really weather related as we’re having pretty good weather lately. Why I blog when I feel down is beyond me because I just talk about the weather.
I’ll talk a little about hula I guess. For various reasons, we have decided to take […]

I uploaded new layouts to my scrapbook page. The top two rows are new as is the first one in the third row, though it goes with the one next to it.

show me the posts

FYI I’m taking a brief blogging hiatus. I’ll be back soon. Like within a week kind of soon. Just not today

Music and Lyrics

Thursday, March 1st, 2007

We just got back from going out to see “Music and Lyrics” with Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore. Very cute movie with several funny parts. I especially loved the video done like the ‘80 because it was just so silly. Chris and I had a good time and it was good to get out alone. […]
