Still No Niece

Well I talked to my SIL this morning and her doctor said that she wasn't going to have my niece today! I really want my niece! And also I know how those last days of pregnancy are- anxious and so tired- that I want that to end for my SIL. So is doing awesome though and seems so relaxed about the whole thing. I guess I am the one who can not wait!!!

Julia is at school right now and I went and spied on her to see how she was doing. The school has a TV that you can watch was goes on the classrooms. She has had a rough couple of preschool days and I just wanted to make sure that she was okay. She actually bit a little boy last time, which is so not like her. Lets hope that today went a better :)

And I happy to report that the weather has taken a turn for the better! I am actually wearing jeans today and don't have to put my air up because the back of my neck is sweaty! Oh how I love the cold! Oh course by March I am sure I will be complaining that it is too cold and I want to wear shorts. Will I ever be satisfied??

So that is my story. Exciting as ever! Thanks for reading!

I promise I will not talk about the "sick" that still lives in our house. I cleaned today so hopefully that will get rid of it for a while. Anyway, I was excited to see that my trash magazines were in my mail box today, yet disappointed that they all contain stuff about Britney Spears and her loser husband. For one thing, why make a big deal out of something that may only last a year? And do we really care all that much? I for one think that the girl needs a break so that she can maybe have a good start to her marriage. I just hope next weeks US Weekly will have somebody besides Britney Spears or Jennifer Lopez (another one of those lost souls) on the cover. There has got to be another celebrity screwing up their life somewhere!

Other than that things have been nice and quiet here. My SIL has one more day to go before her due date! I want my niece now!!! I am sure she wants the same. Send her good labor vibes!

I hope you are all having a good day! Thanks for reading!

House of Sick Part 2

Well I woke up this morning with a cold! Then I looked over at Jon and he has one too!! So our house it officially the "House of Sick". Oh well it was bound to happen and I am going to pretend that I am not too sick. Maybe mind tricks will work this time :) Keep your fingers crossed!

Today we did manage to come up with some stuff for the community garage sale that is happening next weekend. Funny as I look at the pile there is nothing in there that I would want to buy, and I was the one who bought it! I think garage sales are just an excuse for you to sell your crap and than use that money to buy more! I will be interested though in taking a tour of my neighbors crap. You never know, I might find something worth while! I have heard stories about that happening. Maybe someone is selling a pair of Jimmy Cho shoes for $2.00!

Well I hope that Sunday is going good for you all. Thanks for reading!

Hot Doc

Well I had to take Julia to the doctor this morning and ends up she has strep throat. Where in the hell did she get that?? Hopefully she is not playing the kissing game with any of the boys at preschool! She has been really good though, just tired and a little cranky, but who can blame her?

Julia's doctor is a total hottie. My friend and I call him "Hot Doc" because he really is!! When he talks to me I get all flustered and I am sure I am blushing. For example:

Hot Doc: So, is she eating or drinking anything?
Me: What? You know you have great hair.
Hot Doc: Thanks. Want to run away together??

Of course that is how it happens in my mind. But today I was having a hard time because right before he walked in, Julia coughed so bad that she threw up all over me, so I wasn't in the mood to be witty or anything. And besides I have no idea how flirt anymore and if I did I should be using it on my husband. I can day dream though right??

Tomorrow though I am taking a mommy break and going shopping. Jon said that he wanted to have a day with Julia and I was "Hey you don't have to tell me twice" I can not wait to buy jeans and some warm stuff. Maybe I can tell mother nature that it is time for it to be cold instead of 92 like it was today!

Well I think I have said enough! I hope you all have a great weekend! Thanks for reading.

The House of Sick

So it is official- Julia is sick! Oh why, Oh why does this always happen to my kid! I just wish that we could go at least 6 months with no sickness in this house. Now I am afraid Jon or I will get sick and that will just make it worse! Oh well, I will deal and she will get better. I am sure there will be a beer or two in my future!

My 10 year high school reunion was last weekend and I did not go. To be honest, there is no one from high school that I would want to have any kind of contact with. Besides, I keep in touch with those who I have stayed friends with and none of them were going. I did get my memory book in the mail today and it was interesting to see what everybody was doing. There seems to be a lot of people who are attorneys now. You see I went to a very up scale high school where kids got BMWs for their 16th birthdays and they all lived in huge houses. I was not one of those (I did have a car though) kids so it just seems fitting that some of them chose professions that would make them a lot of money and they can be jerks doing it :) I shouldn't judge, but some of those people have secrets and I know them. My bio in the book is says I am a Homemaker- not a lot of money in it and I can be a jerk sometimes, but I find it a lot more fulfilling than any job I could have. It was nice though to see the people I did have a connection with were doing well.

Alright I am done ranting for the day. Hope you all are having a great Thursday. Thanks for reading!

Out of It

I am so out of it today! I am forgetting things and my mind is wondering into space! Maybe I am getting sick with a cold or something? Of course that is the last thing I need. Julia has one now and when her and I are sick at the same time it sucks! I don't get to call in my boss and take a sick day! Well anyway, Julia slept so bad last night because she could not breathe. There is only so much cold medicine I am willing to give to her. Tonight though I might break out the Robatusin w/ codeine that the doctor gave me when she had an ear infection. Hopefully that will make her sleep better. I might just take some too :) (not really, but the thought of passing out the whole night sounds nice!)

I did manage to take the kid to the Wild Animal Park today with my best friend Summer. It was so sad though because she fell asleep on the tram ride for about 30 min. and just kinda chilled out in her stroller the rest of the time. I wasn't going to go, but I thought she might want to get out of the house. Right now though she is on hour #2 of her nap! Poor girl!!

Well that is my story for the day. Hope you are all having a good one. Thanks for reading!


PS- Where is everybody lately?? Is Blogger not working???

All Better- Now I am Hungry!

Must stop eating!!! How come after you have been sick you want to eat everything in sight?? Well that is me! I was watching a thing on chocolate chip cookies yesterday on Food TV so I decided to make some. I used Mrs. Fields chocolate chips and the recipe on the back of the bag and they were so good! I will never pay $1.50 for a cookie again! I have to admit I had one for breakfast this morning- the breakfast of champions! My Dad also told me that he had made Beer Can Chicken and that it was so good, so I made that last night too. What you do is take half a can of beer, place a whole chicken on top of it, and grill it on the bbq for about 1 1/2 hours. It was so good and so easy! So I was quite the porker yesterday. Today I will have to watch myself :)

The weather has also been fantastic! Upper 70's with a chill in the air. I am hoping to take Julia to the park today to get some fresh air before it heats up again. I just wish it would stay this way till next summer, but I bet it won't! Aw the joys of living in desert suburbia!

Well I hope you all have a great Monday! Thanks for reading!

Thursday night my husband suggests that we eat out at our favorite pizza place. I was like hey I am all about not cooking. We order the same thing we always get, pizza and a antipasto salad and it was yummy as usual. Well 2 o'clock Friday morning I woke up with the worst stomach pain. I knew what it was right away because I have had food poising before. Well to end this unpleasant story, I have been out of commission since yesterday and I am still not 100%. What really bums me out that I got it from a place that we have eaten at 100 times before and now pizza in some way is ruined for me. I hate being sick, especially with something you have to wait out till it ends. I was able to eat some soup tonight and that made me feel better. I just hope that it ends tomorrow so I can have a good start to the week.

I did manage to make it to my grandma's house today for her birthday. We bought her a DVD player and her first question was "Where do I put the tape?" It took us about 20 minutes to explain that there is no tape and that you have to rent DVD's in order to work it. She was being pretty funny! Gotta love grandma :)

Well I hope you all are having a great weekend. Thanks for reading!

Being Picky

I was watching Bobby's Flay TV show on the Food Network this morning and it made me realize how much I don't like him. I mean, I am sure that he probably makes yummy food, but there is just something about him I dislike. It is like he shtick is to be a cocky bastard. I saw him on "Celebrity Poker Showdown" and he had a purple suit and if I remember correctly he was the first one to go. Maybe I should just watching his show and I would feel better :)

I am taking Julia to get her first school pictures taken today. My kid is not a dress wearing child, but I thought I would throw a bow in her hair so she looks somewhat girlie. I am sure my mom will want me to out her in a dress, so we will see. I assure you though that no matter what she wears she will be super cute! I have a tendency to dress her better than I would ever dress myself. Why is that??

Well this has been a non-exciting post. Things are slow here for now. I hope you all have a great Wednesday. Thanks for reading!

Isn't that the most exciting title you have ever seen??? Sorry, I could not think of anything clever today! Well this morning has already been an eventful one. I woke up with the worst cramps I have ever had and the thing is, I am due to have my period for 2 weeks. I was kinda freaked out and of course the mind makes it much worse. Anyway, after a long hot bath and some Motrin it went away. No clue what was wrong, I am just glad it is gone. Julia was awesome too- slept through the whole thing! Gotta love my kid today!

Yesterday I went and got my hair colored. I have my hair colored every 8 weeks since it starts to grow out and my lovely roots show. You see, I am a natural blonde, but since I have colored it for 10 years, I have to have help to maintain it. Well, I have been reading all of my trash magazines and there is a picture of Reese Witherspoon with brown hair. I thought "Hey I could pull that off". I have been wanting to mix it up a bit. My hair dresser, who I have seen for 10 years, told me that she didn't want me to lose the blonde that was already there. So this is what she came up with:

It is brown, with blonde highlights. I like it, but I think it makes me look older. And every time I look in the mirror, I do a double take. Sorry about the horrible picture. I guess it would help if I was cuter :) So that was my Sunday. We will see how it grows out in the next couple of weeks.

Well I hope everyone has a better start to their Monday than me. Thanks for reading!

So Nice

I was never really popular in high school. I was always the really talkative girl who would get in trouble, but I only had a few close friends. As I read everyone's comments on my previous post about my anniversary, I felt kinda popular. I can not explain how much it touched me and made me feel special! All of you who make visits to my little blog and read about my not so exciting life are the best! I am so happy that I have had the chance of sharing your lives. Thank you so much! You rock!

Alright that enough corniness for the day. I have a rep to protect :) Anyway, today was a good day. Actually this whole week has been good. Julia has really taken to preschool and I have really taken to my time off. It is funny, but I think she is listening to me more (which was a huge problem) and today she said "Hey Mommmy, it's Friday!" Um...Okay. Who taught you the days of the week??? School did- so cool! It just made me so happy!

Well I hope you all have awesome weekend! We are going out for anniversary to go and have steak. Can't wait :)

Thanks for reading!

Four Years

Today is our 4 year anniversary! We were married September 9, 2000 in La Jolla, CA. It seems like such a long time ago. I think I got the pick of the litter and I am so lucky for having a great husband and father of our child. I hope that 4 years become 40 and in the words of Elton John "I simply love you more than I love life itself."

Just Messing Around

Okay so I still am working on the whole html thing and so far I can change the color, move things from left to right, and some what make a table. So as you can see I have used all of my skills to make this new one! It may be a little bright and please let me know if that is the case. I am trying to figure out how I can make plaid for the background (kinda for fall) and mix up the page a bit, but I am not having any luck. I will have to break down and ask the hubby. The only problem with that is that he talks all this computer lingo and it goes right past me. When I was in collage I took a computer course and I would ask for help. We always ended up fighting because he would make it more complicated than it was. In the end I got an A- all by myself! So I learned my lesson about asking him anything about the computer :)

It is hot here AGAIN! Can I complain enough about it? Sorry, but it seems to determine my life when it is 100 or above outside. These are the days that I wish I had a pool in the backyard that I could just dive into! Oh well, maybe one day :)

Well I hope everyone is having a happy Wednesday! Thanks for reading!


PS- I would love any suggestions that you have for my blog. Color, design, content, anything!!

My Girl

Today was Julia's first day of Preschool. You know this whole time of waiting to put her in I was so excited, but this morning I cried a little. Made me realize that she really is a big girl and there is so much that goes along with it. I want her to be independent, yet I still want her to be my little baby! Maybe I will just have to have another one- wait did I just say that??? Anyway here is a picture of my girl in her new school outfit. Thanks for reading!

I am Getting Old??

Since there has been nothing to do around here besides house work (Yuck!) I have been subjecting myself to the TV. It is also 101 today so we don't leave the house for fear of melting. Anyway, MTV had a marathon of "The Real World- San Diego" and I ended up watching it. I am sorry, but I think I am getting old or the cast of that show is getting younger. All they do is drink and have sex! Then I think "Oh yeah I used to do the same thing.", but that seems like a million years ago. Now I am a mom, housewife, and can't even drink one beer without getting tipsy. It just made me realize that I am officially an adult and I must embrace that! It also made me realize that I have no idea what music is all about these days. I need to get with it :)

On another note, Julia did finally go pee in the potty. I thought I was going to cry! I am just hoping that school will help in the potty training department. OH GOD I hope!!! School starts tomorrow too and she is so excited. I have been hyping it up for the last week so lets hope it lives up to all the talk. I am excited too because that means I can finally get my eyebrows waxed because I will have some time!!

Well I hope everyone is having a great holiday! Thanks for reading!

Nothing to Blog About

Okay who loves a three day weekend?? I do! So nice to hang out and have Jon deal with the kid. He loves to spend as much time as he can so I let him :) We have no plans for our three days, but I am sure we will find something to do!

See- nothing to Blog about today. I did have sushi today and my tummy was very happy :)

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend! Cook something good. Thanks for reading!

Back to Normal

Well my friend Summer left today and now I am trying to get things back on track. Julia has not taken a proper nap in the last three days, so right this minute she is crying in her bed and saying "No nap Mommy!". I am just hoping I can have some time to myself so that I can do my wifely duties I have been neglecting.

I had a blast this past week. We were out of town this weekend and that was fun! I got to see my SIL all pregnant and she looked awesome! Pregnancy agrees with her! Then we found out that my other SIL who is 5 months pregnant is having boy. It will be the first boy grandchild in our family. So that was pretty cool. Then Monday Summer came to visit and have been doing nothing but shopping and playing with our kids. I am sad that she is gone! I have known her for almost 20 years and we have been friends for 13 of that. It is funny how we have changed into adults and mothers. We have a crazy past together and I am glad we can still share our lives today.

Alright I am done being corny :) I hope everyone is having a good week! Thanks for reading!


PS 5 more days till Preschool!! Yippee!
