art day

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

Today Daisy and I hung out at two museums. First we went to a Burger King with a play area until the museums opened. I only mention it because it was the largest fast food play area I have ever seen! It was large enough that after playing for half an hour, there were […]

wiped out

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Man was it a long day. It was fun though so I’m not complaining, I just currently have a headache that needs to go away already.
Anyway, Tabitha has another day camp this week but it’s a tad too far from home for me to drive back and forth. I really don’t want to waste […]

just me and, well, no one

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

I opted out of the Dodger game today in order to spend a little bit of time at home. With Chris home sick last week and the girls and I not home for most of the coming week, I really needed to do housework. I know I’ve mentioned before that I like cleaning when I’m […]

Recital Day!

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

I’m exhausted as I spent 3 hours in a room with approx. 35 girls age 3-6. Chris actually went to the store to buy me Calgon, lol. Anyway, here are my beautiful girls after the recital. I think Chris got better pics than I, but I’m too tired to go through them right now. The […]

end of another week

Friday, June 26th, 2009

I remember when Friday meant nothing to me and neither did the weekends. Now it means Park Day and a lazy dinner to ease into a fun-filled weekend.
Chris was home sick for a few days this week so the girls and I cleared out so he could recouperate in peace. We went to an […]

Apparently it’s going to be a lazy day

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

I have two children still asleep at 8:40am. I type this knowing that will be the magic that wakes them up. Since we have both violin and gymnastics today, I think I’ll just let them be lazy. Well, they also have to finish cleaning the playroom so it’s not all laziness.
We were thrilled to get […]

Made it through

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Chris was in Vegas this weekend with his father and brother to celebrate Father’s Day. Last year the girls and I took a trip because the year before I freaked out while staying alone without Chris. We had originally planned to head out this year too, but dance pictures on Saturday would have […]

I’ve been paying more attention to the bad than the good lately. Time for a look at the good things in life!
Tabitha is really enjoying her theater class this week. That’s really no surprise, but it makes the constant back and forth drive worth it.
One of the instructors told me yesterday that Tabitha is such […]


Thursday, June 18th, 2009

Lately, the only thing I do for myself is read on the internet, watch Friends at night with Chris and attempt to keep up on the house. I’ve been double-booked every day since Saturday. We had American Girl Club, dinner with my mom, sister and sister’s bf, family get together at the in-laws’, theatre day […]

Well, good morning!

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

Major coughing fit woke me a few minutes before 6, so here I am! It kind of works out though. I’ve been going without an alarm all week to get the most amount of sleep which means Daisy has been waking me up. Well, she then wants to immediately sit on my lap and have […]

playroom pictures

Friday, June 12th, 2009

So I mentioned eons ago that we re-did the playroom’s organization. Before it was simply a hodge-podge of as many bookcases and various plastic, lidded boxes we could find. Even when it was clean, it was chaos. After Christmas and carrying into the New Year, we made many treks to Ikea and fixed it all […]

day off

Thursday, June 11th, 2009

The girls and I didn’t do a whole heck of a lot today. We went to Target in the morning to get me cough medicine and though it does hold back my cough, it makes me feel a little wonky and my voice is back to being raspy. I guess at this point it’s just […]


Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

That’s me in a nutshell. Monday morning I was nauseus, all over body achy, head pounding, slightly stuffy nose, killer sore throat, and almost no voice. Tuesday I was mercifully free of all but a small sore throat and slightly stuffy nose. Today I just have a lovely hacking cough. It’s bad enough that I […]

A poem from T

Monday, June 8th, 2009

For whatever reason I woke up feeling very poorly. Not sure if I’ll get to the pictures today. In the meantime, this is a poem Tabitha wrote last week. The style was supposed to be simply two words per line. She chose to write about a propeller hat from Disneyland that she has begged me […]
