Rainy, but still fun

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

I missed blogging last night because at some point I needed to spend quality time with my husband. I haven’t been giving him any attention due to cookies, more cookies, and even more cookies. He’s doing a lot of the work too so while we’re working together, we’re not being together. Anyway, we had a […]

What did you do this evening?

Friday, February 26th, 2010

Me? I stood with 8 Girl Scouts while they sold cookies. They cheered, they danced, they chanted, and they sold their heinies off! Over 100 boxes sold. I’m beat and in need of food and relaxation. Only 8 more booth sales to go!

C is for Cookies- and Closed

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

The girls and I delivered some cookies this morning, ran back home to quickly eat lunch and then went out for a nature walk. Good thing I didn’t have to drive far though. We got to our destination, had to unexpectedly pay parking, parked the car, consulted the trail map, walk 200 yards and came […]

Monkey See

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

We tried to beat the rain today and headed to a park for our little monkey to do some climbing. I know I said we weren’t going to go extra places for a couple weeks, but Chris and I are trying to give Daisy many opportunities to put her climbing tendancies to good use. We’re […]

12 Project

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

A few weeks ago I read this post which also linked to this post. Essentially it’s a project where you take a family picture once a month, jot down a few things about the month, the family, each individual, whatever. At the the end of the year, you get it all put together in a […]

forgot

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

It’s late and I forgot about blogging so here’s a quickie.
Dulce de Leche Girl Scout cookies crumbled in chocolate ice cream, topped with bananas, hot chocolate sauce, and whipped cream= really tasty idea!

yay for evolution

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

You never realize how much you use that opposable thumb until it’s out of commision. All I did was hyper-extend my left thumb so it’s not like it’s a big deal. But, I continued to use it because there wasn’t much choice since I was bundling cookies which meant a lot of ribbon tying (seriously- […]

I thought

Saturday, February 20th, 2010

Today was Thinking Day for Girl Scouts. It’s a day where we celebrate Girl Scouting in other countries. Each troop chooses a different country to represent and sets up a booth with displays and activities relating their chosen country. Our girls chose Greece and made columns to go on the easy-up, a poster of the […]

cookies and peplos

Friday, February 19th, 2010

Today Chris and I loaded almost 2000 boxes of cookies into two cars then came home and unloaded almost 2000 boxes of cookies into the garage.
I sewed 3 peplos this evening. And now I’m sewing the last 2 peplos before I can crash.
That is all.

a time to play

Thursday, February 18th, 2010

The girls spent the majority of the day in the front yard. I know they were making towns for ants that included first a drought, then a flood, then they moved onto mudpies. They weren’t even playing together, it was a case of monkey see-monkey do with the little one being the monkey. Tabitha attempted […]

feel the magic

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

The girls and I spent the day at Disneyland today. We didn’t bother rushing to get their by opening and we were rather relaxed as we strolled the park. We stayed 4.5 hours but only did about 5 or 6 attractions. I think we’ll do it again in a couple weeks.

5 minutes = over an hour

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

My quick project was anything but- good thing I didn’t wait until any later. I got the one peplos done and now I can learn from my mistakes It is easy and the future ones should be much faster but I was having machine issues that lead to frustration which never helps.
I did […]

another one bites the dust

Monday, February 15th, 2010

The girls and I went to a mall today and the Hallmark is closing. When we went to a different mall last week, we found the American Greetings closing. Though it was nice to get a good deal on a few Webk!nz, I’d much rather they both stayed open. It’s so depressing to see all […]

Fabu heart day

Sunday, February 14th, 2010

We had a wonderful day today! First we stopped at Krispy Kreme, which wasn’t that great due to a family that had little desire to control their kids. Two out of three of them fell on me so I’m not just being nitpicky, Thankfully they left soon after we sat down because the only open […]

Sooo fancy

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

The party was a hit! But I’m dead tired so details will have to wait.
I did want to quickly mention that apparently I’m buying the right things. When I was at Target the other night I picked up Season 3 of Psych. The checkout clerk mentioned how much she loves the show. Then I went […]

another Valentine’s party

Friday, February 12th, 2010

Today was our Valentine’s party with our park group. The weather cooperated by giving us upper 60s instead of dreary and cold. We had 19 kids total who started out decorating bags. Then they passed their Valentines out to everyone’s bags. Next was the potluck, followed by the art show, a scavenger hunt, and then […]

The pics are done!

pre-valentines

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

We got into the Valentine spirit today as Daisy attended a Valentine’s party. They decorated cookies and doorknob hangers, had pizza, and played in a generally raucous way. She had a great time as did Tabitha and I since Tabi got to play with the other older siblings and I got to talk to friends. […]

procrastination wins!

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

Yeah, I’m not doing the pictures right now. I had a rough day (the word rough being relative, of course) and I’ve pretty much done nothing of worth for the last 3 hours or so. I plan to continue that until bed.
I’m officially over the rain. It’s so dreadfully dark and dreary and I think […]

one of those days

Monday, February 8th, 2010

But in a good way
For whatever reason I slept really well last night and woke up in a good mood, despite the dreams of mice and rats in the house. I read blogs, did yoga, sat with Daisy, had hot tea and a banana, stared at the blue sky, and then welcomed Tabitha […]

waiting for Tuesday

Sunday, February 7th, 2010

At this point I’m actually looking forward to when Lost is on so I can get Daisy’s pictures up.
Today marked the 5th, and final, day of celebrating Daisy’s birthday. We ended with a trip to the American Girl Place. It was a girls’ day being that it was myself, Daisy, Tabitha, and my MIL. […]

I got nothing

Tomorrow should be a better day.
‘Night.

halfway

Friday, February 5th, 2010

We were putting in our troop’s cookie orders this evening so it was our first chance to tally up Tabitha’s sales. She is halfway to her goal with just shy of 500 boxes of cookies! She still needs another 500 and it won’t be easy, but she is determined. Our troop has a lot of […]

too many pics to even think of going through right now

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

And a good time was had by all We not only went to Disneyland all day on Wednesday, we stayed overnight at the Disneyland Hotel to celebrate Miss Daisy turning the big 5!! I will get to the pictures, but goodness knows it won’t be tonight. I am exhausted, as is the entire […]

We’ve spent the whole day at Disneyland celebrating Daisy’s Birthday Eve. We’re heading back into the park tomorrow for a few more hours for more Birthday Magic!
Details and pictures to come later.

birthday pics

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

I put up Tabitha’s birthday pictures for those that are interested.
She had a really nice birthday last Saturday. We got up very early due to Disneyland opening at 8am and Tabitha insisted on opening her gifts before we went. She was thrilled to receive her new American Girl doll. She immediately proclaimed that both dolls […]

in lieu of a real post

Monday, February 1st, 2010

Tomorrow I shall blog and post pictures. Mainly because I become a Lost widow again starting tomorrow night. 3 hours of it! Sheesh! I better gear up my play lists to drown all the beatings, shouting and shootings.
But tonight I shall share the definition of my names according to the first entries in Urban Dictionary
