Longtime readers have probably seen most of the faces in this photo. This was the last time we were all together in one place at the end of 2015. The new face in the photo is Chelsea, my oldest son's fiance (we love her!). Alex is off in New Mexico starting his adult life... Continue Reading →
Christmas 2014 pics
Oh boy am I behind.....too much studying...tax course is done, now working on a quickbooks online course...so here's a photo dump from Christmas Day with the highlight as the feature - a group selfie of course!
Start the day with a 4.7 mile run that includes conquering Torrey Pines hill. Follow up the run with a nice Frappucino and a couple of beers along with a BBQ lunch prepared by the boys for my parents and I, then a round of Phase 10 won by Alex (yet again). Happy Mothers Day!
Senior Night Photos
The pregame ceremony felt rushed...the announcer didn't even bother saying all our names after he utterly butchered the last name...BUT....at least the pictures came out pretty darn good: Game report later - other photos are still loading...it was a heart breaker... 😦
Side Effects May Include…
As jammed as my days are, you might wonder how the house and yard stay maintained. Well, a lot of the time, they don't! I've already had one neighbor comment on the dead grass I can't blame her - it does look bad and she's newer to the area so never saw the dirt... Continue Reading →
Merry Go Round
It's a tree ornament AND a state of life! Another old classic, though not as old as the mouse. This one has been around ever since we started using white lights in a tree - which I think is pretty much when my parents bought the first fake tree we owned and my mom and... Continue Reading →
Oct 23 – All My Children!
Day one of vacation was filled with many errands and accomplishments. There was also a final debate. But none of that matters. Because this happened: Right to left: 16, 27 and 27's older sister (same dad) and her adorable baby girl. While I have been keeping up with her through Facebook for awhile now,... Continue Reading →
Here's my Facebook status from Sunday night: "Collapsing into bed having managed to pull off a movie and bbq birthday celebration despite the grill master being out of commission. Thank gawd for substitute grilling experts (oh, it was just a *little* fire!) and super easy going friends and family and that last burst of energy... Continue Reading →
May 20th – Mother’s Day redux
When you have kids, you have to let go of any notion that your day belongs to you. Best laid plans and all that. Same for cats as we learned last weekend when I had to postpone Mother's Day dinner plans due to Chip's little bladder adventures. However, my idea that this weekend would be... Continue Reading →
May 12 – And peace was restored
Mother's Day is tomorrow, but I am declaring that I celebrated mine today. 26 and I had a great day together (along with the aforementioned friend I took in to work yesterday). I lounged in bed. The vet called to say Chip needed another day on the catheter. He was clearly feeling better but there... Continue Reading →
