1000 times better

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

Yesterday was beyond miserable. In the evening, I asked Chris for a back massage because I wanted something to feel good. Somehow he massaged the cough right out of me! This morning, it was just about gone. I took zero meds all day and didn’t have one of the freakishly, violent coughing fits until around […]

hacking it

There’s more to life than [still] being sick, but it still works for a title.
Today was a relaxing day for the Anc Fam. Tabs slept until nearly 9 and Chris later still. I didn’t even serve breakfast until after 10. Then we gathered up our donations and headed to Goodwill. We hadn’t been in a […]

time for the show!

Saturday, June 26th, 2010

Today was the long-awaited dance recital. We had dress rehearsal first thing this morning, then a brief break, then back to the theater for the show. The girls did great (of course) and the kids were all adorable. I helped out in the little kids’ room again this year. Hoo boy, was it ever loud! […]

First time using the netbook at a park to blog. I don’t have any access to wi-fi of course, but I’ll upload when I get home. I just have Daisy with me as Tabitha and Chris are at the NHL draft. Thankfully it’s just round 1 so it shouldn’t take all night, but there’s still […]

glory be

I actually tried on, and bought, 3 dresses today! I went to Gap to try on a skirt and top that I was thinking of purchasing online since I had 30% off. Well, the skirt was nowhere to be found, then I saw the signs that said all women’s sale items were an additional 40% […]

together again

Monday, June 21st, 2010

Chris came home from his guys’ weekend today. Though us girls kept busy this weekend, we were most definitely glad to get him home. One benefit though to me being sick is I was too tired to hear noises that weren’t there so I actually slept this weekend. We celebrated his homecoming by going out […]

still sick/still sunburned

Sunday, June 20th, 2010

I’m so weak I can’t do anything if I feel even a tad less than perfect. Oh, I can go do fun stuff, hence a lovely afternoon at a science center today, but I can’t do anything I’m suppsoed to do. Although, I’m guessing my use of the word can’t isn’t accurate, probably more like […]

big plans

Saturday, June 19th, 2010

I know I’ve written before how I love to plan parties but I don’t actually like to attend them. Apparently this applies to anything in my life. I had lots of different ideas swirling around in my head for what I wanted to do tonight after the kids were in bed. I spend a good […]

progress report

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

I was asked about Tabitha’s current grade level by no less than 3 people last week. This leads me to believe others might have the same question so I thought I’d kind of spell it out for anyone wondering.
She turned 11 this past January, so if she were in a brick and mortar school […]

Is it pink?

Is it blue?

You decide!

excellent day!

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

Slept in, made pancakes for the fam, girls played outside with water, relaxed on the computer, got dishes, vacuuming, and one load of laundry done, kicked back at a McD’s so Daisy could play, browsed Target, bought loads of produce at Sprouts, had a yummy chili and baked potato dinner, spent some time with Tabi, […]

the dress won

Saturday, June 5th, 2010

I sewed for 7 hours today and finally had to come to the conclusion that I wasn’t going to be able to finish. I probably have another 2-3 hours of work in front of me and that’s if it all goes smoothly. I just reached a point where my body gave up. I was in […]

First blog post on the new netbook. The keyboard is a bit smaller than full size, but manageable- other than my thumbs hitting the touchpad on a regular basis. I do love having it though. It’s the perfect size and just what I wanted. Definitely a big thank you to both my mom and my […]


Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

The last couple days I’ve wanted to spend some time with the girls away from the house. So yesterday we went to a play area at a mall that Daisy had never been to and today we went to a new park with a lovely tree for exploring. Sadly, neither outing was what I’d hoped […]

the end of the celebration

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Yesterday was a pretty good day for a birthday. The weather was gorgeous which is really all I ask for on most days. We did go to Disneyland as usual and we rode rides I wanted to ride. I tried to buy myself a frozen banana as a treat (I cannot remember the last time […]
