Some rain

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Yesterday the clouds threw a very sudden burst of rain down on us. Hard enough that I checked to see if it was hail. Maybe 15 minutes later I looked out the front window and it was raining steadily. Then I looked out the back glass door and it was not. This is not the […]

Life is good

Monday, September 29th, 2008

No real plans this past weekend so it was full of good family time. I finished Tabitha’s new Disney dress to match the one I made Lindsay and I also finished Daisy’s candy corn dress. I still need to make pants to go with that in case October is cooler than September. It would almost […]

Today I sewed

Sunday, September 14th, 2008

I finished both of Lindsay’s outfits today. I really like sewing doll clothes because even if you make a monumental mistake and have to start all over from scratch, you can still finish two outfits in one day because they are small.

The Disney one is basically a t-shirt dress, except I sewed the shirt […]

Fall is on the way

Sunday, September 14th, 2008

The temp all week has slowly been on the decline but yesterday was practically cold. The kids and I were quite chilly at Park Day, but we dealt with it and had a great time with our friends. It was one of those days where Daisy played too and didn’t just bug me to push […]

sharks, fish, and rays

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

Today was Homeschool Day at the Aquarium. The girls and I headed out first thing this morning and had the whole upper part of the building practically to ourselves. It was so peaceful among those giant walls of fish. We were even alone at the tidepool touch tank which is a miracle in and of […]

They better sleep in

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

Yesterday Daisy fell asleep between 4pm and 5pm. I didn’t consider it that big of a deal because she’s has a mild version of the cold and she didn’t get enough sleep the night before. However, come 9:50 and the child was still awake channeling her older sister by proclaiming she couldn’t sleep. Unlike Tabitha, […]

Daisy loooved her dance class yesterday. During the summer she was just in a half hour movement class just to get her used to the studio. But now she’s in the one hour ballet and tap class which is obviously a better fit for her. She’s so darn cute insisting on a ballerina bun and […]

morning thoughts

Monday, September 8th, 2008

It used to be if I woke up to clouds I would immediately feel down and be thrown into a funk. Now they don’t bother me at all. I know longer consider them a sign of a gloomy day. I’m not sure what changed, but I’m glad for the change because we get a lot […]

couple time

Sunday, September 7th, 2008

Today was one of those blah days. My neck is still killing me and I was tired of sitting around. Usually when I’m in a funk such as this, I need a little more time alone with Chris. So we called up my in-laws and asked if they’d take the kids for awhile. After dropping […]

Saturday at home

Saturday, September 6th, 2008

I did get a lot of sewing done today. It was difficult for me to be motivated because I have weird crick in my neck that would not go away. It wasn’t affected by sewing so not made worse, but it was really all I could think about. Chris gave it a good massage which […]

daily commentary

Friday, September 5th, 2008

Tabitha woke up feeling so much better this morning. It’s too late for me to un-cancel tomorrow’s plans, but at least she seems to just have a light cold. Of course I say this now but in a week I’ll probably be talking about her having a cough that won’t go away because all her […]

So I shall sew

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

Tabitha is definitely sick so my days just cleared up. We were still going to go to gymnastics for Daisy today, but the little rugrat fell asleep on a quick trip to the grocery store and she would not wake up. I tried everything but she literally told me to leave her alone so that […]

Bring on Fall!

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

We finished off Summer with a trip to California Adventure on Labor Day. They open later than Disneyland so going there only allows us to sleep in. We had such a great day that after we finished our dinner in the picnic area, we decided to go ahead and go into Disneyland for a couple […]
