End of the (35th) Road

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

Remember all that fabulous food I mentioned I ate yesterday? Apparently I ate too much of it and I awoke at 4:30 this morning with a stomachache. I was like a 10-year-old the day after Halloween. I did yoga this morning in an attempt to, I don’t know, stretch the pain away? I postponed working […]

Celebrate good times, come on!

Saturday, May 29th, 2010

Today was my birthday weekend kick-off! It started just as I like with the house to myself. I did my yoga, had some hot tea while I read blogs then worked out before jumping in the shower. We left the house a little later than I wanted, but were finally on the road around 10. […]

Today has been a very long day. It was Homeschool Day at LACMA (LA County Museum of Art, too lazy to link), so we headed out there this morning. We aimed to arrive early so we could walk around Tar Lake as it’s next door to the La Brea Tar Pits and Daisy really wanted […]

That’s a new one

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Today I received a phone call wondering where we were, more specifically, where Tabitha was. For what I believe is the first time in my mom-career, I completely, 100% forgot about something my child was to attend. Thankfully my friend called as opposed to simply assuming something came up and I was able to get […]

tuesday wrap-up

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

Wow! No Lost tonight for me to blog through! I need a good sit down time though because I haven’t blogged our picture from month 4 for the 12 Project and here it is almost time for month 5! We haven’t taken this month’s photo yet, I’d like to do it on my birthday, but […]

monday stuff

Monday, May 24th, 2010

Chris went to a Lost finale event in LA last night so while he was gone I worked on Tabitha’s Sleeping Beauty dress. I got the bodice and skirt pieces cut out which doesn’t sound like a lot but I’m making my own pattern and the dress is made more complicated by being half blue […]

Due to the last 3 years of Webk!nz purchases, we have an abundance of stuffed animals in this house. Webk!nz alone account for 217 of our stuffed animals and there are tons of others as well. They were completely taking over the girls’ room. A couple months ago we bought two giant bins and filled […]

lovely day in may

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

Tabitha had a great time at her event last night and this morning- the downside being her lack of sleep. Though she may fight going to bed every single, solitary night, she is not fond of waking up after not enough sleep and they were awoken at 7 this morning which is an hour an […]

Today’s Google was the best! I love playing that little Pac-Man guy and the girls enjoyed cheering me on as I got those ghosts. Tabi told me how she played once but she hated the clunky joystick. Kids today, I tell ya! LOL
We stayed only briefly at park as we had extra stuff this […]

this is why I continue not to blog

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Just to give you an idea of my week- I was standing up doing nothing and the underwire on my bra just snapped in two. I hadn’t touched it, I’d been wearing it all day and there is not explanation other than the universe is truly just having fun at my expense.

Last Tuesday

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

So this is the last Tuesday I’ll ever be a Lost widow. I just thank goodness he didn’t watch the first few years and instead caught up on DVDs. It’s not that bad, I don’t mind a bit of time to myself, but I’m chained to headphones because I cannot stand listening to the loud […]

hi there

Monday, May 17th, 2010

I haven’t had a full night’s sleep since Wednesday night, so I’m too tired to blog. Didn’t want to go another day without posting anything though. I’ll probably get a real post up tomorrow. Thanks for your patience

we’re a food kind of people

Friday, May 14th, 2010

We had plans this evening that didn’t quite pan out- as in, they were sorta lame. But the evening was not a total wash because we went to 2 gourmet trucks! They were at the same location but we still drove extra for all the times we circled the block before giving in to the […]

social rule

Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

Going by the rule of “if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all” I will not be commenting on the day. I have a feeling tomorrow won’t be a prize either.

Finally, Easter

Monday, May 10th, 2010

I finally took care of the Easter pictures yesterday. They may be viewed here.

do what you want

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

It’s annual “kick the family out of the house” day! My day started with breakfast in bed served to me by Chris. He even went to McDonald’s to get me a big Diet Coke. I slept until close to 8 which is pretty darn late for me so that was nice. After the girls got […]

the pic

Saturday, May 8th, 2010

It’s very late as we just finished watching “It’s Complicated.” Loved the movie, thought it was so fun and a good time. Too late to blog, so here’s a quick post of Daisy in the dress at the Princess and the Frog birthday party.

Still don’t like making hats

Friday, May 7th, 2010

Darn thing took me about 3 hours of actually working time. And that’s with zero mistakes. Honestly, should have taken an hour. But it’s done and looks good with the dress. Daisy likes it because it’s a dress without pants. She’s decided to be vocal in her dislike of pants which is a shame since […]

found a cool park

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

Tabitha had a birthday party to attend today for a few hours after lunch. Technically Daisy could have gone too, but it was a pool party and no way was I going to get in the pool with a bunch of splashing kids. So Daisy and I found our own fun. First we went to […]

Cinco de Mayo

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

I was going to write today’s post in Spanish, but decided that would be more trouble than the smile it would give me would be worth. Plus I know I would get enough of it wrong to be positively cringe inducing.
As I sit here in the breeze, I realized how much I love Spring. […]

I suppose I should type something

Tuesday, May 4th, 2010

To be filed under the adage of “You learn something new everyday.” I just found out that “alright” isn’t a word. Could of fooled me! Apparently the phrase is “alright is not all right.” Okay then, note taken.
In other news…..
it was a boring day. We did nothing. Honest to goodness, nothing. The girls had dance […]

lovely weekend

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

Saturday was a quick dance performance for the girls in which I did not stay downstairs with Daisy and convinced her to let me watch the whole thing. She kept Chris with her for awhile, but eventually her friends showed up and she let him go as well. I don’t get to see the recital […]
