Tuesdays are never my friend

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

Weekend was pretty good for us, though there was some canceling of plans. Friday night we hit up Mad T Party which was fun, of course. The crowd was gigantic thanks to some event going on. It was getting to me after a while. But as summer crowds are coming, I either need to deal […]

Not the most productive of weeks. Then I thought Daisy was getting a cold so we even cancelled 3 things we had going on only for Chris to point out to me that it was probably her allergies. He’s right. One day I’ll learn to tell the difference.
So the week was pretty much practicing violin, […]

To dance is to be free

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Saturday and Sunday were both competition days for my girls. Tabitha had 1 dance on Saturday which also includes Daisy and is the production number. Daisy had another dance on Saturday and was her jazz team. I don’t have a lot of pictures to share because most of them include other children, but I got […]

We did stuff

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

Last Wednesday we headed to the Discovery Science Center to see the Indiana Jones exhibit before it closed. Basically they had props from all four movies as well as archaeological finds from various digs around the world. The artifacts were accompanied by information on how to document finds, how to go about figuring out what […]

stay tuned

No good can come of this post

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

If Chris came home from work tomorrow and told me his company wanted us to move across the country, I would look at it as an adventure.
If he came home and said he was now going to work 30 minutes later everyday, I would go into a tizzy.
I cannot handle small changes.
As I look […]

quiet evening

Monday, April 15th, 2013

Upon reflection of today’s event, I had no desire to leave my family and try and have a good time at dinner with a friend pretending everything was fine. Similarly, I chose to keep Tabitha** home from Girls Scouts. So this evening has been spent hanging out together. Tabitha and I watched Doctor Who while […]

Fully stocked

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

Chris and I have fallen into a lovely pattern as of late. We’ve been doing the grocery shopping together and having lunch without the kids’ knowledge. Well, that’s not entirely true. They know we’re shopping and know we grab lunch somewhere, but it’s the where that they are unaware of and we want to keep […]

Cal-Earth Field Trip

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Today we drove to Hesperia (yeah, that’s far) for a field trip to Cal-Earth. Even though I was there, I find it hard to explain. Basically the idea is that everyone deserves a home and they teach people how to build homes out of the earth (not dirt). They are called “super adobe” and use […]

Need a little help from my friends

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

I woke feeling better, though still not right. I did get up and I worked out, but my heart wasn’t in it. But a half-hearted work out is still better than nothing so I won’t dwell on it.
**See what I did there? I do it a lot. I mention a negative and then try to […]

staring within

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Often when I wake up, the first thoughts that pop into my head are what I have to get done that day. On days where we have somewhere to be, I wake up with a bit of dread. So I’m used to not being in the best mood upon the alarm going off (I’m sure […]

short one

Monday, April 8th, 2013

Real quick post tonight because I want to go spend some time with my hubby.
Had dinner with my friend, went really well. I was nervous as hell, because, well, that’s just me. But in the end, I don’t think I made a jackass out of myself, we had great conversation, and I can’t wait to […]


Sunday, April 7th, 2013

I’m not in the best mood right now and this computer is not helping. It won’t log me into Facebook, I have to update everything RIGHT NOW and the keys are being persnickety so please forgive any weird typos I may not catch.
It’s been a fairly lovely day, not sure why I’m being annoyed so […]

LA Sports-a-palooza

Saturday, April 6th, 2013

We had no plans for the day and the Kings and Dodgers were kind enough to not play at the same time so we turned it into a game day. We started with the Kings game at 1pm and had nachos for lunch. First of all, I clearly had no idea what I was doing […]

Flora and a bit of fauna

Friday, April 5th, 2013

Yesterday morning was one of those days where I just want to get in the car and go somewhere. I think the beauty of the day before inspired me despite Thursday’s looming clouds. I settled on two choices to present to the children and they both chose a small arboretum that none of us had […]

here chicky!

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Have I mentioned here that I’ve started crocheting? I know I have on facebook, but seriously doubt it has been mentioned here. I started less than 2 months ago on a whim and it turns out, I really like it! Simple hobby that I can take with me, unlike scrapbooking or sewing. Of course, my […]
