The treats

The rice crispy treats have been made. I think the boy will be pleased. I'm eager for him to get home so that he can see his presents and all that and all that...

My SIL is not being very nice to my MIL. I wish that it would change but I don't know what's wrong with her and I don't have the gumption to ask her what's wrong.

A Friday

It's Friday already. Today is the husbs birthday. I don't think that we'll be doing anything tonight. I am making him rice crispy squares though and last night he had his birthday dinner. Quesadillas with homemade tortillas.

I tried to call a Tia on my father's side of the family but her number has changed and I don't have a new number. So that's 2 relatives I have tried to call on the paternal side with no success. This is getting harder and harder I think. I don't know the names of my great grandparents on my paternal side. UGH!

I'm going to get the kids ready when they wake and we will go have lunch somewhere and then maybe to a park.

Refilled

I have been working on my family tree so that the kiddos have a record of their peeps when they get older.

Most of the records are US based and well we know how that works... Anyway, finding info on my Mom's famils is easy but trying to find it for my Father's is near impossible. I think I will try to contact some family on that side but there aren't many avenues to explore with that. Anyway, I will find something.

In other news:
Lately it seems like I can never say the right thing. Like I don't know how to console or comfort someone anymore. Even someone who is a close friend. I feel like what I say doesn't matter. I had a friend who was hurting recently and I just said nothing and then when I did decide to say something, I thought about what I said and thought, "Man that was stupid." I really really need to try to get over that and try harder to connect with people I care about.

In addition:
I said two things in my dream last night that made me wake up laughing. I think I laughed at how dumb they sounded... So I was in a store with a blond girl. I knew who she was but I don't know who she was now, you know what I mean? Anyway, she went to a salon and dyed her hair brown. She ended up going to some party and was the hit of the party and when I saw her later at the store she came up to me and thanked me for the help in deciding if she should dye her hair or not. I was like, yeh, no prob. Then she proceeded to tell me every fun detail of her night and said, "and another thing, I was the hottest girl there." I said, "Cool! Well, you know that brunette is the new blond." My mom looked at me and said, "What?" and I said "Yeh, you know how they use to say all that stuff about how blonds have more fun, well now they say that about brunettes." And my mom laughed and then I said, "Yeh, just like being brown is the new white."As soon as I said that line, I woke up laughing at my dorkiness.... I have never been known to make profound sociological statements or claimed to be a fashionista.

Moreover:
I have a prayer partner at church. Someone picked my name and is praying for me throughout the Lenten Season. It's just nice to have someone else in your corner.

I actually think that's all I have to say.

Doing it for real this time

I'm abandoning myspace.com and making this my blog. I just don't like the popularness of myspace. Plus, I think I like this format better. I enjoy the cleaness of this site much better.

Tomorrow is the husb's birthday. Which will also be the 19 month mark for the babies. Oy! I bought the husb a new Swiss Army knife and a skin for his iPod and some man-perfume (Allure by Chanel). I hope he likes. I have also bought him a plethora of cards. I love cards.

Okay I think that's all. The babies need a nap and I need more coffee...

a couple of things to be sure...

Today I think I'm going to go to Sacramento to see D's grandma. But I'm not quite sure yet. It's still rainy and I don't like driving in the rain.

A couple of days ago, I had this dream about Angelina Jolie. As part of the TVMOTC you get pregnancy pals. Someone who has been there, done that kinda thing... Well, I had a dream that I was Angelina's pregnancy pal. I had dinner with Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston (who said that the rumors of them not liking eachother were media contrived). We had sandwiches and then we went to some auction. Tre weird. Then Brad Pitt showed us their new condo and he said that me and my family should move in and also, Angelina wanted me to raise her two that she adopted for a couple of years so that she could bond with the new baby.

WEIRD!

My guilty pleasure is the band Nickleback. So far they have had 3 songs out that I really like and I really like their videos. Alright ALRIGHT! I admit it!

Anyway, my tea is cooling so I am off...
