around town

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

The girls and I headed out first thing this morning to get some errands taken care of. We went to Lakeshore Learning first and I must say I was disappointed in their lack of selection in paint. I wanted two shades of blue and I was lucky to get that! They only had basic colors […]

daily posting

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

I wasn’t in a very good mood this morning- though not for any particular reason. I was just kind of down. So when we got home from Kindermusik, I wasn’t in the right frame of mind to start lessons. As such, they didn’t get started until well after lunch so there were a few things […]

Well okay then

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

That was a pretty strong earthquake. We’re fine. There is stuff everywhere, but nothing broken it seems. The girls are terrified so I’m trying to focus on getting everything back to normal for them quickly. We’re having lots of discussion time too.

12, Oceans, Egypt, Candy, Fair, Matter

Monday, July 28th, 2008

Yesterday was our 12th anniversary. We went out in the evening for dinner at PF Chang’s. My mother had given us a gift card there since I enjoyed it so much last month and wanted to take Chris there. He loved it as much as I did and we had a great dinner. We had […]

The show

Saturday, July 26th, 2008

Last night was the show Tabitha’s theater class got to be a part of. Tabitha gets to keep her costume, which is nice because she decorated it herself. For my sake (and my car’s sake!), I’m glad it’s over. But Tabitha had a great time and is really glad she did it. She looked great […]

and back to a crazy day

Friday, July 25th, 2008

I had no time to sit and blog yesterday. It was just typical of this week.
Drive to theater class to drop off Tabitha
Drive home
Do housework
Do dinner prep work
Drive to theatre class to pick Tabi up
Drive home
Shove snacks and drinks at everyone
Get the girls dressed in leotards
Remember to put food in oven and set delay timer
Drive […]

not much to add

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

Daisy slept almost 2.5 hours so I was able to do laundry, eat, clean up toys, and read. When she woke up we only had a little bit of time before we headed out to get Tabitha. Tabi talked our ear off the entire drive home leaving out no detail of today’s theater class. Once […]

not bad

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

Tabitha is at her class and Daisy fell asleep on the way home due to waking up an hour early. Today makes up for yesterday

Is “collapsing” on the schedule?

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

I had to leave by 9:30 this morning with everyone completely ready for a long day, including bellies full with a hot breakfast, and extra-primp time for Tabi as she was having headshots done this morning at theater class, and I had to pack her a lunch. I drove half an hour to drop her […]

life in the theatre

Monday, July 21st, 2008

Tabitha started a theater class today. Needless to say, the child had a good time. I was apprehensive when I drove her there as it was an unknown, but I was soon put at ease when parents were told we were more than welcome to stay. Unfortunately I didn’t have that luxury as Miss Daisy […]

Disney, pizza, and a trophy

Sunday, July 20th, 2008

We headed out to our favorite Sunday spot today first thing in the morning. It was overcast but cool so really lovely weather to get a lot done at Disneyland. We were hoping to ride the new Toy Story ride again, but after waiting almost an hour, they emptied out the line due to technical […]

Back to 1824

Saturday, July 19th, 2008

Today was our American Girl Book Club meeting. Our subject was Josefina, a New Mexican girl in 1824. I feel it was a very good meeting today simply because I think I put more work and organization into it. Don’t get me wrong, the other meetings have had plenty of thought behind them, but this […]

Taco Friday

Friday, July 18th, 2008

We skipped going to the park today because I felt the need to stay home. We did have to go to a make-up violin lesson but since it’s close to home it wasn’t that big of a deal. Tabitha’s teacher suggested we think about moving her to a 45-minute lesson instead of the current half […]

Friday Eve

Thursday, July 17th, 2008

I like Thursdays because if we don’t errands to run, then we’re home until the afternoon when it’s just one stop for gymnastics for both kids at the same time. The only downside is I have to plan meals around the fact that I’m not home until dinner time so I usually end up cooking […]

As American as Apple Pie

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

Last night we settled in for the All-Star Game and had a baseball themed dinner. We had [veggie] dogs, peanuts, cracker jacks, and nachos. We ate dinner in the living room to watch the game which sadly ended in a National League loss (after 15 innings!). It was pretty fun and might be a good […]

Settle in, this’ll be a long one

Sunday, July 13th, 2008

I have soo much to blog about. If you’re not in the mood to read, there are pictures as well if you just want to scroll down.
So all this week Tabitha had a class at the Natural History Museum as she does every year. This year she chose a class entitled “Animal Theater.” The focus […]

no time to sit

Wednesday, July 9th, 2008

Tabitha is at a day camp this week so there is just no time in the day. In addition to this activity, Daisy started both dance and Kindermusik this week and of course there is still violin for Tabi and gymnastics for both of them. Not that this chaos isn’t of my own making, I’m […]

hanging out and living life

Monday, July 7th, 2008

Nothing extra going on around here- I just haven’t felt like blogging. After a couple days it feels like an obligation and that’s a sure way to get me to not blog even longer. But we’ve had a good past week and a half.
The last weekend of June we took the kids to Disneyland for […]
