Lucky number 13

Monday, July 27th, 2009

13 years ago today, I married my best friend. I am just as much in love with him today as I was then. Happy Annivesary, Sweetie!

We’ve been working on fair projects non-stop since we got home from day camp this afternoon. Currently, Tabitha is putting sequins on her octopus one-by-one using straight pins. Tedious, but it looks fantastic! Daisy finished her entry for the coloring contest, then did her fish decorating entry, and her starfish decorating. The fish is just […]

rough week

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

Chris came down with a cold on Saturday. Apparently he gave it to the kids and of course this is no time for them to be sick. We’ve got day camps, for goodness sakes! I’m being the bad parent and not keeping my kids home. *sigh* I hate when I do something I don’t […]

Would you look at that?

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

Got the old look back, as you can see. Still plan to upgrade and change things around, but I’m happy for now.
Today was another Dodger game for the Anc Fam! Miss Daisy was less than pleased and the spoiled princess didn’t even really care that she got a free Webkinz out of the deal. […]

That 70s party

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

We had another American Girl Club meeting yesterday. This time the character was Julie from 1974- that would be the year I was born. Nothing like your birth year being represented in a historical doll line to boost the self esteem! I was really flummoxed as to what crafts and activities to do but I […]

This week we’ve had one class for the whole week- that’s one total commitment which is astounding for us. I’ve been sleeping past 7 and not caring if I didn’t start working out until 8:30am. It was so freeing not to wake up and feel behind in the day.
Today we did have Park Day, […]

Well, it’s not pretty,

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

but at least I know my archives are here and safe. Maybe now I can finally relax and lower my stress level. The knot is my stomach is finally gone. Losing my archives would be akin to losing all my family albums and scrapbooks. I don’t keep a seperate diary and refer to my blog […]

ignore issues

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

The blog has been hacked and I’m tearing out my hair to fix it. In the mean time, wonkiness will surely abound. For those that read in Google Reader, that’s the problem I’m working on.

It’s all good

Monday, July 13th, 2009

I changed the title of my last post because it looked like “content” as in, put your content here and I meant it as content=happiness. I hate coming up with titles anyway, that is probably the hardest part of blogging for me. I guess I’m not witty enough
Tabitha is currently fascinated by the […]

party, books, cheesecake, movie

Monday, July 13th, 2009

Sunday morning was slightly chaotic with me taking Daisy to a birthday party and Chris and Tabitha taking his car for service. Just as I pulled up to the party, he calls me to say that his car won’t be ready for 5 hours. Thankfully, I had good friends at the party who were all […]

He’s Just Not That Into You

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

This was a movie that I was anticipating and planned to see in the theaters when it came out. Then it came out and I read several reviews that made it seem like not that great of a movie so it was downgraded to PPV status. We downloaded it a couple weeks ago and finally […]

Not the best “Mommy” day

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

Just finished a rousing round of Zooreka and am about to sing a bedtime song to the eldest child before I can sit down and say “Thank goodness they are both in bed!” It was just one of those days where both kids were argumentative with me and I was in no mood so I […]

does not seem summer-ish

Thursday, July 9th, 2009

Mid-July and we haven’t done one summer thing. No beach trips, no water trips to California Adventure, no water play in the back yard. Just, nothing. It’s not even warm in the evenings for goodness sake. It gets to the low 80s, so I turn the A/C on around 2:30 and then turn it […]

the end of camp

Sunday, July 5th, 2009

Tabitha had the last day of her summer camp yesterday. The theme was Africa and the camp is focused on learning through art so lots of projects came home this week. It also involved archaelogical digs and cooking. This is the first year we’ve done this particular camp so it was all new to us. […]

you spin me round round

Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

Today Daisy and I went to Disneyland while Tabitha was in her class. That kid ran me ragged and I ended up feeling nauseous and like I was still in motion even when I wasn’t. We started off nice and tame with “it’s a small world,” but then it was twice in a row on […]
