Saturday fail

Saturday, July 31st, 2010

Last night we went to see the musical that Tabitha’s day camp was performing in. Her class was more involved this year with more dancing and reacting to what was happening on the stage. She had a great time at her camp, as she always does, and declared it the best one yet. The kids […]

weekend update on wednesday

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

Tabitha is in a day camp this week and today I thought rather than go home, Daisy and I would spend the time going to a couple parks. Just to be sure we’d have enough to do, I also found a nearby McDs with an indoor play area. Daisy chose the big park to go […]

My crazy kids are hooping it up in the front yard oblivious to the cold. I actually went inside to put on sweats and my slippers and am only abstaining from the sweatshirt on principle, what with it being July and all. I came out so Daisy could play in an area that isn’t visible […]

safe and sound

Saturday, July 24th, 2010

Tabitha came home completely exhausted but full of happiness for the wonderful time she had. She ate wonderfully and only had PB&J one day and wasn’t cold at night at all. So next year I can cut my worrying in half because it won’t be the unknown. She wrote in her journal everyday during […]

I went to my book club meeting this morning- I had a good time! I personally ran out of steam after about an hour, but I think that’s just because I’m not used to discussing books and there were distractions of keeping an eye on the kids at the same time. I’m looking forward to […]

like a missing limb

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

We sent Tabitha off to camp yesterday.
I’m practically hyperventilating just typing that sentence! I actually was fine saying good-bye and didn’t cry or embarass her, but as we were driving away I just felt so weird. I thought I’d be fine because she goes on outings and sleepovers without me but I guess since I […]

I’m just resting my eyes

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

I’m typing this up while lounging in bed because I’m seriously contemplating going to sleep now. I have a book that I may read but that’ll put me out very quickly. It’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” as I’m joining some other parents from our park group in a discussion this week. Thankfully the reminder was […]

la playa

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

We hit the beach with a group of our homeschool park group friends. Good times. I actually went in the water and probably spent more time in the water than the previous 2 years combined. Admittedly, only up to my hips.
And that’s it because the only other thing of note today was I took a […]

Sewing Webpage

Tuesday, July 13th, 2010

I finally finished my sewing webpage! Well, in all honesty, it’s missing a picture I cannot find and 2 others need to be replaced with larger versions. But it’s fine for now and I’d rather get it up sooner, rather than later. It has pictures and descriptions of everything I’ve sewn since I started sewing […]

Disneyland today

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

Long day.
Lots of fun.
Dead tired.
End of post.


Saturday, July 10th, 2010

Not that I super care about how many hits a day I get since I’m fairly low, but it is sad to see the average go down. Oh well, my worth is not measured by hits, lol.
First thing this morning we headed out to a mall to do a meet and greet with Phineas and […]

late night

Friday, July 9th, 2010

Chris left an hour an a half ago to pick Tabi up from an event this evening only to find out it had been delayed an hour. I’m not happy about how late she’ll be getting to bed. I’m drinking some caffeine so Chris and I can spend some more time together this evening before […]

I also choose Miami

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

Because I’m pretty sure they have some damn sun shining.
The kids did most of the work for dinner tonight so that was nice for me. I supervised, more with the little than the big, but I didn’t have to step in and do anything. I even let Daisy cut the tofu, I figure the soft […]

piercings, clouds, and dinner

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

Tabitha has a magnetic lip ring that we bought her quite a few years ago. She’s wearing it today to book club and has informed me she plans to really get her lip pierced when she’s older. Now, I personally don’t care as it’s her body, but this is the same child who last […]

lovely, lovely

Monday, July 5th, 2010

Seriously wonderful weekend all together. We had good food, good times together, as well as apart, and overall just wonderful. It was relaxed for the most part though Chris did do heavy yard work. The highlights, not in order:
Going for a walk to watch neighbors’ fireworks
Watching Percy Jackson
Going fabric hunting with Tabitha
Watching the girls […]

stuff ‘n fluff

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

The illness from hades came full circle and Tabitha got sick again with my cough. It’s been real fun around here. She’s much better now and thankfully never seemed to get quite as bad as I was (or at least, how bad I perceived myself to be) so life can finally get back to normal. […]
