Disney World ‘08- Day 6

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

Today was the day we were all set to match shirts. I know! Me matching family clothes! What is this world coming to? In any case, our personalized, embroidered shirts attracted loads of attention so it was worth it. Plus the girls both look so cute in their crocheted beanies.
Anyway, we started the morning off […]

trying to climb out

Wednesday, May 28th, 2008

This day has not gone well and I’m desperately trying to get out of the funk. I’d like to dwell on the positive- I had a good time doing lessons with Tabi, I had time to myself to read a new book, I got a lot done on my sewing, I watched Daisy use scissors […]

not much

Monday, May 26th, 2008

We really didn’t do much this weekend beyond enjoying the fact that we had three whole days together. We all played various computer and video games in different groups of two. I took Daisy with me when I went on errands at her request so she and I got to spend a lot of alone […]

first third of the weekend

Sunday, May 25th, 2008

Yesterday was very low key and therefore kind of flew by. We took the girls to Open Gym at their gymnastics’ and they both had a good time. Skills testing is this week and next so Tabitha was working on a few things she needs help with. She still needs more upper body strength and […]

one of those days

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

But in a good way
Everything went smoothly all day long- despite my 6:20am wake-up knock from Miss Daisy. Tabitha can take forever to get going in the mornings so I had a chat with her last night while we were on our way to Girl Scouts. As a side note, the car is […]

Friday already?

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

Love those three day weekends and now we have another one this weekend This week just flew by!
We went to our first Dodger game of the season on Wednesday night due to Chris getting free tickets. The seats were pretty good, and free is good. What wasn’t good was the wind. It […]

weekend in SD

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

We went down to San Diego for the weekend and had a fabulous time. The weather was just perfect and we did all the things we wanted to do.
We drove down Saturday morning and stopped for lunch at the first vegetarian restaurant on our list of three. It was called Sipz Fuzion Cafe. I […]

Date night

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

Tonight was a night out for me and Chris without the kids We didn’t do anything terribly exciting but it’s always good to be alone together. We had a lovely dinner at California Pizza Kitchen. I know I was just there on Sunday, but at the end of that meal they gave me […]

more scrapbook talk

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

For my scrapbooking readers, since Sunday I’ve finished 4 layouts and have posted them at the scrapbook page.
For everyone else, I’ll type a regular entry soon- Chris will probably watch Lost tonight

Yesterday= bad
Today= Not as bad
I’m not 100% but I don’t feel like a zombie at least. Tabitha is fine too, mainly because she was never sick. She decided yesterday morning that she wasn’t sick afterall so at least she didn’t miss ballet. I stayed in the car with Daisy and read a book while listening […]

Three days

Monday, May 12th, 2008

Saturday we went to The Living Desert in Palm Desert. It’s a zoo and botanical garden focusing on desert plants and animals. We tried to go before it got too hot, but alas, it was almost 100 on Saturday. We did get there early though and were able to really enjoy ourselves before the heat […]

site stuff

Sunday, May 11th, 2008

For those that care about this sort of thing, I’ve put up pics of all the scrapbook layouts I completed recently. They cover all of February 2008 and I must say, I like doing a whole month as I feel like I accomplished something (scrapbook-wise, that is). You can go directly to the recent layouts […]

from good to bad

Friday, May 9th, 2008

Today was one of those days that started our really good, had a decent middle and just ended poorly. I guess I shouldn’t say that considering it’s not over yet. This morning the kids were playing together in the way that makes a mother smile. I was cleaning the kitchen and dining room while they […]

eleven o’clock on Thursday

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

Daisy didn’t really sleep much better last night and definitely wasn’t up to gymnastics today. Since I didn’t want her getting her germs on books in the library, I took our portable dvd player for her to watch in the car while Tabitha was in book club. She thought that was pretty cool. I simply […]

not too bad

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

The day wasn’t that bad actually. I let Tabi sleep until 10 just because I know she didn’t exactly get good sleep last night either. So we had a very lazy day- Daisy watched tv then played computer games and I dressed way down deciding comfy was a bit more important today. While Daisy rested […]

this should be a fun day

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

Daisy has a cold which means neither of us slept last night. The best I had was probably the 40 minutes on the floor next to her bed using a blanket for a pillow. My neck is paying for that this morning. At 5:30am, I discovered she had wet the bed at some point in […]

Piggy pics

Sunday, May 4th, 2008

I finished the applique on the tank top today I still want to embellish capris and we’re waiting on accessories I ordered from ebay, but since it is a complete top and bottom, I thought I’d share pictures.

The twirl factor! It can do a full horizontal twirl, but then her undies show, lol.

These […]

homebody wanna-be

Sunday, May 4th, 2008

We’re supposed to be driving to Palm Springs right now, but yesterday morning when I was faced with all our weekend plans just after our week o’ plans, I decided the trip needed to be postponed. I bring it all upon myself so I’m not going to complain, I just needed to not have plans […]

I will survive

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

That was a great Survivor. No spoilers here for those who Tivo’d it, but it was a good episode to me.
Also putting me in a good mood- I finished the piggy skirt! I wanted the pic to be large so details can be seen in the fabric so I’ll just put a thumbnail for you […]


Thursday, May 1st, 2008

Yesterday we didn’t have any classes so were home when Chris got home from work at his new, earlier time. We decided to take full advantage and went out to Baja Fresh, then we did all of Target, then went to Henry’s. When we got back in the car to head home, it was 7:30pm, […]
