You know I had such a fabulous weekend and today was the complete opposite. It’s a busy week of fun things but I also have several not so fun but absolutely must-do things and I cannot fit them all in. I was majorly stressing today; enough so that I gave up on the raw foods […]
Yesterday was a fairly leisurely morning and then off to a quick dance performance for the girls. It was a community type thing where there were booths from all sorts of businesses and programs relating to kids and they had information about what they offered. It’s not our particular city, but close enough that we […]
Today is 82 and sunny and Wed. is supposed to be 62 and rain. How can we fluctuate 20 degrees in 4 days? That’s crazy!
Yesterday was a day of unexpected events. While I was at park talking to a friend, I sensed someone behind me and turned around to see Chris standing there! He took […]
Daisy had a playdate this morning which means I got to talk to a friend of mine I don’t see very often. It was really good to catch up in the time they were here and I definitely hope we don’t go so long in between our next get together.
After lunch I was still […]
We had a field trip with our park group today to a recycling center. Tabitha had a good time and Daisy made the best of it, as is her norm. It was too long and too much lecturing for Daisy, but she’s really good about finding something to be positive about. And I did my […]
Tuesdays are hard because we have two dance lessons first thing in the morning and then 3.5 hours at home before we have violin. In that 3+ hours we have to have lunch and do lessons and that’s after the kids unwind from thier classes. So needless to say, we don’t get too much done […]
I’ve got a few things wrong with me at the moment and I feel compelled to complain. I got a heat rash on my legs last Thursday and not only has it not gone away, it hasn’t even abated and still hurts. Usually it feels better in two days, but I guess the weekend activities […]
We had a lovely day at Disneyland yesterday. We had a few goals in attractions and almost attained them all; I still haven’t been able to catch Captain EO. We rode Dumbo, Matterhorn and Alice before heading across the way to California Adventure. Tabitha and I have been wanting to ride Toy Story for awhile, […]
March 2010 will forever be known as Cookie Madness. We did nothing but eat, sleep, and breathe cookies. Tabitha and I had a total of 9 booth sales, 7 of which were in March. All family activities were put on hold. In the end, Tabitha sold an amazing 755 cookies.
New this month: Tabitha has […]
Tabitha went to her callback this evening with an updated list of her conflicts. Turns out the Club 500 Girl Scout event that Tabitha worked her bootie off to be able to attend is on the same day as one of the performances. That’s non-negotiable for the theater. The woman there at least told Tabitha […]
It’s over! We had our last booth sale tonight and completely sold out. And that’s without having a single Thin Mint due to a shortage. The troop did so well and collectively sold over 2600 cookies! Our council’s goal was 1400 per troop so we are ecstatic about our sales. Tabitha did get her goal […]
I tried to get a lot done today, but didn’t quite manage. I really accomplished the same as usual on a Monday except we didn’t do lessons because I thought I was going to use the day to get stuff done! Only one out of the ordinary task got crossed off my to-do list. Oh […]
Today did not go so well in various ways so I’m forcing myself to focus on the good.
We get to watch Amazing Race in a few minutes.
Tabitha is now less than 50 boxes away from meeting her goal of 750 boxes of cookies thanks to wonderful friends!
We spent a good portion of yesterday going from […]
We chose to end our “vacation” week with not going to book club so our morning was very leisurely. Not even sure what time we finally all got dressed. We did go to Park though to hang with our friends and had a perfectly lovely time.
This evening was another cookie booth sale. We did alright, […]
Nature Center and walk
as well as fun at the park
Hate the word, loving the reality. I can sleep in my own bed each night meaning I never have to worry about taking my pillow with me. I know where the banks and grocery stores are. I don’t feel the need to fill down time as I do in a hotel room. I don’t have […]
I was feeling in the mood to head out today so I checked the list of free days at museums. The one for today was the Autry Museum of Western Heritage so that’s where we went. It was interesting in some ways, but I really felt it lacked cohesiveness. What I really wanted was for […]
Above are tiny little ’shrooms we saw on our hike today.
We did get out and about and took a horrible hike. Horrible due to lack of signage. Horrible due to overgrown “paths” leading to the constant worry of poison oak. Horrible because it highlighted how unbelievably out of shape I am with the heavy breathing […]
So I was in a bad mood for most of yesterday due to not sleeping well the previous night. Guess what, still didn’t sleep well last night. I even dreamed that a neighbor of mine used the same gardener we do and had the same complaints. I guess I was justifying to myself my desire […]
But Daisy did let me sleep until 7:55am so I’ll take it. We had a lovely family breakfast this morning (scrambled eggs, pancakes, and veggie sausage) then we all headed out to another booth sale. Chris and Daisy hung out in the shopping center and she got to ride the quarter machine horses. The first […]
Cold blah blah blah Park blah blah Cookie Booth Sale blah blah blah blah
Though my feelings on the day are not blah, there really isn’t much else to say! We did a booth sale outside of an Italian restaurant and after smelling their food for 2 hours I had to go buy something to bring […]
I owe about 6 emails, need to paint a sign, need to bundle cookies, and need to package cookies for mailing.
Look at me avoid it all!
I’m sitting here shivering and realize that I haven’t really been warm the entire day. I think I’ll grab a blanket to wrap myself in while we watch Survivor.
This was taken on the last day Miss Daisy was 4 years old. She doesn’t seem 5 even now. The day before her birthday, she decided to practice her “5 skills.” This apparently included clearing her throat when she misspoke. She had a whole list in her head of these 5 skills but declined to […]
I’m feeling a bit more clear-headed now that I’ve had some sleep. I think you can hear the tired in last night’s post. Chris apparently is not doing so well though. Yesterday I told him I’d take both girls to Tabitha’s dance class so he could get some alone and relaxation time (usually he takes […]
Why are the writers of Chuck trying to make me hate Superman? Serious bummer way to end my evening. I realized today that I have no time to even feel stressed. I guess it’s a good thing that cookies aren’t stressing me out, but on the other hand, I think I may be so freaking […]
