There’s bears in them mountains

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

We just got back from a weekend trip to Big Bear Lake (popular ski area in winter). We’d been looking forward to this trip for a couple months now and Friday night it was finally here!
We started out after Chris got home from work on Friday night. Let me tell you, that was some nail […]

too much good stuff

Friday, September 28th, 2007

I must ask, how does one get the song “Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang” stuck in their head? I haven’t seen the movie in at least 20 years.
Aside from that, there is way too much going on for me to even entertain the idea of sitting down and blogging. Even now, this is just a […]

not a real post

Thursday, September 27th, 2007

So this isn’t a real post, but if you haven’t seen the William Tell Overture mom, you should really watch it.

It’s Tuesday already?

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

Our weekend plans were seriously altered due to intense rain Friday night/ Saturday morning. It was raining when it was time to go to tennis on Saturday morning and hadn’t been raining for about 2 hours. So Chris and Tabitha headed to the court and spent 20 minutes with about 10 other kids waiting for […]

I don’t like being right

Thursday, September 20th, 2007

Tabitha has Daisy’s cold. I hate when I’m right about things like this. I’d like to think it will be over quick like Daisy’s was, but Tabitha’s colds always take forever to end because they evolve into a cough. She simply has to be better by Saturday morning though as we have plans this weekend. […]

in which I talk about lessons and other things

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

This is another one of those posts that has many different subjects. I spent 15 or 20 minutes last night typing up a post and the computer ate it. By that time I was in no mood to try and recreate it. Oh, pour a drink because this is not brief.
Both girls had a dentist […]

it begins

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

The little one has a cold which kicks off our next two seasons worth of trading illnesses. Ugh. Based on the timing, she picked up the germs either at Disneyland on Saturday or the fair on Sunday. I’m guessing the fair because a kid did in fact cough right on her. Of course, we were […]

various thoughts

Wednesday, September 12th, 2007

One week from tonight I’m supposed to be seeing The White Stripes- a band I adore and have wanted to see for a few years. KROQ has reported that it is now cancelled due to illness. I’m very, very sad right now.
It doesn’t help that I just finished putting Daisy’s clothes from last year up […]

Ahh, that’s where we belong

Sunday, September 9th, 2007

We went to Disneyland for the first time in a month. A month, people. We never stay away that long. We had a great time, too. It wasn’t very crowded at all, the weather was warm, but it’s only in the mid-80s now instead of the low 100s so it’s quite nice. We’re out of […]

latest sewing projects

Friday, September 7th, 2007

I have some pictures to share today. First up is t-shirt, twirl dress I did for Daisy. This is the one that I just fell in love with the fabric and knew I had to make something with it. It’s a rather simple dress, but I’m quite pleased with it. I figure I’ll pair […]

train wreck

Thursday, September 6th, 2007

Tabitha is watching High School Musical 2 again and I feel I should put on headphones because it is next to impossible for me to not stop dead in my tracks staring at the tv in growing horror. I can’t look away once it sucks me into it’s quicksand of tweendom. I’m trying to distract […]

what to do

Wednesday, September 5th, 2007

Thank you for all your lovely comments on Tabitha. She still loves her hair and talks about how glad she was to do it for a good cause.
Yesterday the girls and I stayed home other than Tabitha’s violin lesson and today looks to be the same. But I’d like to take them somewhere we […]

This is my Tabitha at 10:00am today:

And this is my Tabitha at 11:00am today:

That beautiful girl just donated 10 inches of her hair to Locks of Love. Words cannot express how proud we are of her.

hot, hot, heat

Sunday, September 2nd, 2007

We in Southern California were going along about our business enjoying our mild summer. Then the calendar showed it was the last week of August and BAM 100+ temps. It’s hot at 7:00 in the morning and still hot at 11:00 at night. We’re supposed to go to Disneyland tomorrow and I’m not sure I […]
