immunity, don’t fail me now

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

Seriously, the kids and I are coming down with another freaking cold. Our immune systems have never been this crappy before, why now? Since we have some can’t-miss plans coming up starting tomorrow, I went to Henry’s and got us all some immunity booster vitamins. Even if they don’t work, as Tabitha said, at least […]

faux-thanksgiving #2

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

We gathered at my in-laws’ house yesterday for a big family Thanksgiving. It was wonderful with I think 16 of us in total including a kids’ table and everything. Straight outta Norman Rockwell, just as I like it
We were listening to Weezer’s “Can’t Stop Partying” yesterday in the car. Tabitha mentions that it […]

not the usual

Friday, November 20th, 2009

The girls and I took a little break from the norm yesterday and today. We took our sweet time getting ready yesterday morning and then eventually headed out to a park. I sat with my book and felt the glorious warmth of the sun on my back while Tabitha and Daisy spent time building a […]

And they say dodge-ball is a dangerous game

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

So when I started playing Simon Says with the kids today, I didn’t expect it to end abruptly with the girls singing “It’s a Small World” at the top of their lungs, with their eyes closed, and then slamming their heads into eachother so hard that they were both in tears.
But it did.
But the […]

The “why” it is

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

Tonight I explained to the 10 year old exactly why I don’t let her read or watch Twilight. She didn’t really make me feel it was worth my time so next time I think I’ll just fall back on “because I said so.”
Right now I’m just happy to be not running off to someone’s […]

mmmm- pie

Today I headed out by myself to do a little clothes shopping. I had a 30% off coupon for Gap that was good at the Gap Outlet so I figured I could put it to good use there. It’s a bit of a drive to the outlet mall, but definitely worth it as they have […]

no bad luck here

Friday, November 13th, 2009

We had a lovely time at park today, though there were only a handful of families due to a local festival. We then got a change for the norm and went out to lunch with my mother as today is her birthday. The four of us had a nice meal together and got some good […]

ups and downs

Thursday, November 12th, 2009

I felt pretty good most of the day, but there was one really, really low point. I’m raring to go now though, which is good since Survivor is on tonight. I decided yoga was just what I needed this morning to warm up so I did hop on my Wii Fit for that. I skipped […]

I’m sitting here thinking I’m cold for no reason. I’m wearing long sleeves, pants and socks, but I just feel cold. The thing is, it’s not cold in here. The thermostat says 70 so it’s not like I need to turn the heater on or anything. I checked today’s weather though and the high is […]

no title tonight

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

Daisy first got the sniffles last Monday afternoon. She still has them. Tabitha has had a cough for roughly 3 weeks now. I’ve had a sore throats for a week. Chris has a full actual cold. Basically he put together all the symptoms the rest of us have and combined them. At least his way […]

PJ Photos

Friday, November 6th, 2009

I put up my photos from the two Pearl Jam concerts. Even if you aren’t really interested, you should click through just to see how amazingly close we were! If you want to see any of the videos, go to Youtube and search tarazandra. There are also videos from PJ in 2006, so if you […]

Let’s get those immunity systems working now, please

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

Kids are sick again. It’s just a cold for Daisy and an even more minor cold for Tabitha, but it’s annoying because we all just finished being sick. I blame the ever-changing weather as our bodies are constantly being thrown for a loop.
Not much out of the ordinary has been going on this week. One […]
