With Chris getting home so much earlier, our days are just flying by. Both yesterday and today I had to run and errand and take kids to classes so I barely have time to squeeze in their free time, their play together time, lunch and lessons. Then we come home from whatever class and […]
Chris has a temporary reprieve from the uber-late shift so I’m taking full advantage and started walking tonight. I haven’t walked in months and it felt good. We all went to the grocery store after dinner and then I walked home. After a couple blocks it felt like I’d never stopped. I could feel […]
Temps hit 100 today so we spent a leisurely day at home. Chris and Daisy slept until 10 thwarting my desire to make a big breakfast. Instead we had an early lunch. The girls played together and separately, Chris and I played Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, I sewed and built Daisy a train track, Chris […]
We headed back to the candy store today for more Webkinz activities. The owner is so nice that she let my girls do all the activities, even the one we weren’t going to be there for later in the day. First, both girls did a gem hunt (finding a colored stone amongst foam peanuts) and […]
We had a lovely time at Park Day this morning. I got in some really good talking time with the other parents and Tabitha says she had a great time with her friends. Daisy wasn’t really happy to be there, but 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.
During naptime, I started on Tabitha’s piggy skirt […]
Darn that surround sound, no matter how loud my headphones are turned up I can still hear bits of Lost coming from the living room. There’s always explosions and gunfire that breaks through my music. I’m listening to my mellow playlist which just can’t compete.
Anyway, the beeping was here very briefly this morning and […]
The beeping next door led to something big and powerful hitting something else with enough force to shake the ground under my feet. Had I not known what was going on next door, I would have assumed small earthquake. That happened 3 or 4 times and I was starting to fear for my windows. They […]
My neighbors as having work done in their backyard which involves a small forklift-like vehicle and it’s going back and forth from their front yard to their backyard. When it goes from back to front, it travels in reverse, so I’ve been listening to that horrid backup beeping sound that trucks make for the last […]
Yesterday we drove down to San Diego and wen to an environmental fair. It was much bigger than we thought it would be with loads of booths offering information and/or services. The services booths weren’t that valuable to us since they were all based in San Diego, but it was still neat to see […]
Today was rather pleasant. We went to Park Day this morning and it was a nice turnout and even nicer weather. There’s a little girl about a year older than Daisy who is very friendly so I kind of pushed Daisy in her direction and told her to play with K. She’s just the type […]
I finally got Tabitha signed up for her own gymnastics class and I was able to get her into a dance class. Daisy is not in dance yet as the one I wanted is full. I’m thinking I’m going to be going the parks and rec route for a little while, but for a 3 […]
Today was our first meeting of the American Girl Book Club. I have to say it went so well! The girls really seemed to have a good time which was my only goal. I love planning things, but I’m not so good about actually hosting. I’m nervous before every party I throw and often wonder […]
Today is one of those beautiful days with all the doors open and the children are providing a lovely background sound of laughter. I’m adding my own soundtrack in by blasting The Raconteurs. I was playing a bit of Serj Tankian earlier and Daisy started dancing around telling me she loved that music. I grabbed […]
It seemed like a good day at first. Well, not completely at first when Daisy not only woke up an hour early, but promptly started the hysterics when Chris left for work and she regretted refusing to say good-bye. But after that- it was good.
The girls were having such a good time together and playing […]
We’re all battling different degrees of colds and I’m feeling rather tired and disinterested which is why there’s been a lack of updates. Daisy relapsed after I thought she was fine and Tabitha didn’t get her cold right away so both of them came in contact with other kids last week and I feel really […]
I had a brainstorm with a scrapbook layout I was stuck on and found exactly what I needed at a scrapbook store today. I also found embellishments for the other layout I was working on and it looks so much better now. Tabitha was at a movie party and Daisy was napping so I had […]
Since the New Year we’ve gone to Disney World for 9 days, Chicago for 7 days, to Phoenix for a weekend, an American Girl Fashion Show, The Huntington, a Foo Fighters concert and a Wiggles concert and gone letterboxing. We’ve had two birthdays, one birthday party, Easter, Girl Scout cookie booth sales and a recital. […]
