no need for an alarm

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

For the second day in a row I was up well before the sun. In general I prefer to have sunlight when I wake up, but it wasn’t really a choice. Once I’m awake in the morning, then I’m pretty much up. I tried to go back to sleep this morning, but after 15 minutes, […]

We get to dance class this morning and on our way in, I ask Daisy if she was planning to dance in her Crocs. She smacks her forehead and says “Ohmygosh! I forgot my backpack!” I thought it was no big deal and went back to the car; except, she meant she left it at […]

easy like sunday morning

We had a very laid back weekend. It wasn’t supposed to be, but Tabitha came down with a cold that necessitated the postponement of some plans. So we hung around the house watching Dodger games and a Brady Bunch marathon. Tabitha loved the Brady Bunch for which I’m glad because on my Christmas list is […]

kicking back

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

I had minor stresses today and was feeling less than stellar this afternoon. I wanted to stay home from gymnastics but chose not to ask Tabitha to do that. Probably should have as I did not have a good time. Debated about eating out once we were home, despite having dinner ready to go in […]

what’s my age again?

Last night was our long awaited night to see Blink-182 in concert with Weezer. So here’s the background- about 7 years ago we were given free tickets to a Green Day/ Blink-182 concert. Jimmy Eat World opened for them and I enjoyed them enough that I decided to purchase their CD next time I got […]

is it bedtime yet?

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

Nothing like having very disturbing dreams and then being awoken in the middle of them. I still haven’t shook the dream hangover and it’s been over an hour. Oh well, nothing a little pick me up from McD’s drive-thru can’t cure. If you can’t tell, yes I’m drinking caffeine again, but not at home. Because […]

from this morning

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

I have a severe case of writer’s block, I think. Every time I open Wordpress, I type one sentence and end up closing and never finishing.
Chris is home with a very sore back today, so I left Tabitha there to get a few lessons in while I’m at dance class with Daisy. Then I […]

daisy quote

Monday, September 14th, 2009

“I love everything!”
“Except walls.”
::long pause::
“But ceilings are pretty nice.”

Thoroughly enjoyed the 3-day weekend

It certainly was a good one
Sunday morning we met my in-laws for brunch at Acapulcos. It was very delicious, they even had fried plantains! Aside from the food, we also had good conversation. All in all, a wonderful morning!
We relaxed at home for a little while and then Chris and Tabitha went off […]

Need an earlier start

Sunday, September 6th, 2009

I didn’t get up until 6:30 today, but since I can’t exactly go straight into a bleary-eyed workout, by the time I started it was 6:50. I’ll admit I cut it a smidge short because I can’t find one piece of equipment, only about 5 minutes, but by the time I was done and out […]

starting the day off right

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

Not quite 7:30am and I’ve worked out and showered this morning. I really like when I can get myself going. My alarm was set for 6:30am, but then the shower in the master bathroom decided to randomly let water out at 5:45am waking us up. Then Daisy came in a few minutes later and said […]

I’m not sure how as I sit here on a Friday morning, it feels like the week dragged on forever. We added dance back into our weekly activities so that could contribute to it. Especially as the girls now have class on two different days whereas we used to only go on one day. But […]
