try-its and scrapbooking

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

It seems to be working to have my craft table in the dining room. I have completed several pages since moving it in here. I did replenish my picture supply so I have enough for a little while. I’ve completely finished all of Tabitha’s 8th birthday stuff. It came to a total of 12 pages. […]

where did the time go?

Tuesday, May 29th, 2007

This weekend went too fast which means you know it was good. We had a play date, Tabitha was in a Memorial Day parade, we had a lovely visit and lunch out with my mother, Chris and I watched Night at the Museum (really cute and fun), and we tried something new: letterboxing.
Letterboxing is similar […]

Fun House

Saturday, May 26th, 2007

One thing I like about our house is it’s fun. You want to play darts? That would be our bedroom. Jump on a trampoline? Living room. Go down a slide or ride a roller coaster? Then you want the back yard. Computer games are in the dining room, dollhouse in the girls’ room and every […]

try this

Friday, May 25th, 2007

Tabitha has a been a Try-It fiend lately. Since Sunday she has completed 4 and we’ll finish up another one tonight when we make an marionette. Her current project has nothing to do with Girl Scouts though. She is writing a Thomas the Train Engine book for Daisy. First she’s writing out the story on […]

late may

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

Yesterday was our last Kindermusik class until summer session starts in a couple months. By the time we go back, Daisy will have lost all enthusiasm for it and we’ll be starting all over again in regards to her participation. Frankly, I don’t care if she participates if she doesn’t […]

This is what I do in my spare time

Monday, May 21st, 2007

And I had a good time doing it, lol. We have a Neverland play mat so I flipped it over to the blue side and placed it atop two kid tables pushed together to create the play space. Daisy really likes being able to walk around the track, but if I just use one kid […]

I finished the girls’ sock monkeys! I’ve had it in my head that I was going to sew sock monkeys since reading this post at DD’s blog. The directions really did seem easy enough that even I could do them. My interest was re-fueled after receiving Daisy’s sock monkey dress and we finally went to […]

Darn you Target. Darn you and your sweet, alluring orange clearance tags. I went there for socks. Do you hear me? socks! *sigh* I’m hopeless.
About every fifth visit the receipt printer gives me a paper telling me I’m pre-approved for a Target card. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Can you imagine me with a credit card to Target? That […]

the yard in back

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

Daisy took a relatively short nap and since she awoke the girls have been playing in the back yard. I assume they’ll come in at some point but so far they’re having a grand time.
Today is the day I get back to normal. I don’t mean my lingering illness, I mean it’s May; almost […]

last two days

Monday, May 14th, 2007

Saturday was fairly relaxing. We did go to Target in the morning for various necessities but made it through there quickly before coming back home. During Daisy’s nap, Tabitha played on her web sites while Chris and I played our video game, but I started feeling really drowsy so we went to lay down and […]

You gotta love a mom (mine) who sends her daughter (me) a Mother’s Day card.

sometimes the caffeine just doesn’t cut it

Friday, May 11th, 2007

I am so tired. It’s not even lack of sleep it’s just this stupid cold. I thought it was light and mild and even said on Tuesday that I felt great. Now I’m just tired with no energy whatsoever. Yesterday I finally just tried to kind of nap before Chris got home. Of course the […]

Funky Monkey

Wednesday, May 9th, 2007

Daisy’s sock monkey outfit came today! I love it! In hindsight I should have taken her picture with my sock monkey, but I don’t think she’ll tolerate another round of pics, she’s really not feeling well.

things are progressing on the home front

Wednesday, May 9th, 2007

Last night Chris primered the small wall. We kept putting it off but now it’s done. Hopefully painting will take place tonight. Also, Mr. F came today and finished taking out the last of the ice plant on our hill. Yay! Now we need to decide on a border, lay the anti-weed fabric, and fill […]

well that was a sucky night

Wednesday, May 9th, 2007

Daisy is definitely sick so I’m glad we didn’t go to Kindermusik yesterday. Around 10:30 last night she awoke and for whatever reason thought it was time to get up. It took me over half an hour to get her back to bed and by that time, Chris had fallen asleep on the couch. For […]


Tuesday, May 8th, 2007

I’m feeling great, but still have a few symptoms and I think Daisy may be coming down with it as well so we won’t be going to Kindermusik today. I just hate when other people go to classes while they are potentially contagious and I don’t want to be that which I hate.
Never did […]

Just when you think it’s safe

Monday, May 7th, 2007

I finally get those darn High School Musical songs out of my head and what does Tabitha do? Watch the concert. Ugh! You know by the time they are gone again, number 2 comes out and that’s just a whole new round of *stuff* in my head. It’s like baby diapers- I don’t like them, […]


Friday, May 4th, 2007

We headed back to the mall we were at a couple weeks ago and went to the Hallmark where we bought Tabitha’s Lil’ Kinz. They still only had the one Lil’ we already bought but they had several full size Webkinz. I figured that would be the case and was prepared to buy a $17 […]

game time

Friday, May 4th, 2007

Last night was my turn to conduct the activities for a Try-It at Brownies. Tabitha had chosen “Playing Around the World” which meant playing a few games from different countries. I was so nervous for most of the afternoon that the girls would think the games were lame, but instead they had a blast. Two […]

self esteem

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2007

Tabitha and I were in the car alone today and I like to use that time to have good conversations together so I asked her what she liked about herself. I was so pleased with her answers which ranged from physical (specifically her eyes and hair), to things she can’t control (she likes her family), […]

I know we did stuff

Tuesday, May 1st, 2007

I always put off writing my little weekend recap and then for the life of me I can’t remember what we did. Other than Disneyland, because we always go to Disneyland. Hmm, Saturday. Oh well, guess it was less interesting than usual. Wait, I remember now. Chris and I cleaned up most of the backyard […]

Is this encouraging?

Tuesday, May 1st, 2007

As Daisy is over 2, this is in our future. Cool? or Scary?
Daisy has requested a pink potty, but she also wants one with a flush handle. Can’t find pink but at least she’ll get the handle.
