Naturally

Well we woke up this morning from a long weekend and the baby daughter started throwing up. ACK! My poor child. I don't know what's wrong but hopefully it will pass very very quickly.

Yesterday we had a bbq at the MILs. The FIL comes back today from Ohio.

The baby son is happy go lucky and doing yoga poses. Seriously, he's doing the Child Pose (bala-asana) perfectly. Probably because he is a child and it's very very easy for him to get into that pose.

My friend Nicolas and his partner Yesenia meditate and do yoga with their daughter Azucena as a daily routine. Perhaps I will start doing something like that. From what I have heard their girl baby is very well balanced and centered. She's 4 now. I can't believe it!

Anyway, the kidlets are eating their apple and listening to Dan Zanes, I should get out there but they are having so much fun without me.

Insane In the Membrane

This week was kinda crazy... Just kinda. You know, not really weirdly crazy but it had enough drama in it so that I was happy to call it a week.

Monday and Tuesday were pretty normal days. Then on Tuesday night the Husb told me that the had scheduled his Wave Front Lasik surgery for Thursday. O-KAY! So that was one thing...

Then I just kinda putted around doing some small but essential chores on Wednesday. Grocery shopping got done and we went to the tot lot down the street. I didn't cook that day. I decided that we would have leftovers! Yay for leftovers and tupperware. The kids were pretty tired so they went to sleep quick.

Thursday started out kinda normal. We just hung out and had breaky and what not. The MIL came over about 12pm and the Husb came home from work. He had lunch and then we got ready to go to the laser center to get his eyes sliced and diced. Had issues with the pharmacy. Of course, why wouldn't I... Then we came home and the MIL stayed until about 9pm. I made rice and cream of chicken slop for dinner. I like slop.

Anyway, on Thursday I found out that one of my friends passed. He was only 35 years old. I am still some what in shock but mostly just curious. His girlfriend didn't tell us how he died, just that he died and I suppose that maybe an explanation (died in his sleep is what I just read) will come soon but I can't help but wonder. He had been severely depressed recently and she did say that he didn't commit suicide. Which is a relief. There are so many ways to die. So I talked to my friends that knew him and we decided that we should do something in his honour. Since the funeral is going to be in Ohio I'm looking into foundations or flowers or something. He was a coold guy. He liked the Golden Girls and folky country bluegrassy music. He liked cookingand knitting and he moved from the Bay Area to NY to be with Janette. Anway, I do blather on... I will miss my friend. He was awesome.

Friday the Husb and I went to this eye appointment to see if everything was okay. They said he was healing perfectly. We went to lunch afterward, sans kiddos cause the MIL was taking care of them. Do you know how long it had been since we had been alone!?!?!?! It was great. Came home and then we went over ot Nordstrom's to by the Husb some cool shades for his now non-prescription face. He's beautiful still. Even without his glasses. Afterward we went to the park.

It's just been a lot of go-go-go this week but it's over and now we can move at the snails pace I like....

don't pull the rope

I woke up this morning to J and K both yapping for daddy. Yay! I just slept uncomfortably all night long with you and you want your daddy. Sure thing!

Anyway, yesterday was a lazzzzzy ass day. We didn't get a move on until about 2pm. It rained all morning so the parks were wet and we decided to take the kids to The Jungle in Concord.

They had a good time. It was crowded though and they don't do a good job keeping the big kids out of the toddler area, even though they say they do. So anyway, a good time was had by all and we came home and had dinner. Then we watched Sesame Street until like we usually do.

Choir of whines has commenced...

oh my life, is changing everyday...

I had the craziest dream. I had a dream that I was pregnant and I didn't know that I was pregnant. All of a sudden my water broke and I gave birth at my house to my daughter. We put her in the sink and washed her off and my husb told me I had to go to the doctor's office because I just gave birth and they're going to want to know about it. I said okay and went to my Dr.'s office and they wouldn't see me yet I had to wait in the waiting room and I was starving and they brought me a plate of food and I was told that I would need an escort out because this was also an abortion clinic and there were people protesting out there. So I waited and waited and I must have seen my doctor but I don't remember that part. Then all of a sudden I was going to a Juliana Hatfield concert where John Strohm was also playing. She came up to the girls I was sitting next to and asked what song she wanted to hear. She said, "Pet Semetary" I was like What the Fizzle is that?!?!?! So she started singing the song (It was spelled like the movie in my dream) then John Strohm came out on stage and sang a song that I was singing in the dream but now I can't for the life of me remember the song.

Houston, there's nothing wrong!

A long time ago in a land far far away (oh, sorry, I have been reading too many stories to the kids)... I guess it was like 1993 I went into Apple Records and bought one of the coolest CDs I ever bought. It was only like 5.95 and it was worth sooooo much more. Anyway, I bought The Muffs. I bopped to that cd for the rest of the 90's and then when I moved to Califaztlan I kinda forgot about it. Yesterday as I was picking up all my CDs that my children pulled out of the CD holder, lalalalala there it was! Yes, it is now rockin' the iPod properly.

Also yesterday, I went to the groceries. Big deal you say. Pashaw! I bought Creamy Chocolate coffee creamer by CoffeeMate. Holy creamy goodness, it is the greatest thing ever!!!!

Oh I was having a really downer of a couple of days. You know how in middle school the competition for the smart kids starts? Well, yours truly was one of those smart kids. There was a girl that was my nemesis, we'll just call her Trollop. (She's not really a trollop but for the story's sake, oh and my ego's too). Well, I had a dream about her a couple of days ago and I woke up and thought, "Hmm, wonder what she's up to?" Came in to find her, well, I found her. She's got her Ph.D and she went to 3 very elite schools and not only that she's a professor at another great school. OMIHECK! I felt like a total loser! What the heck was I doing, nothing compared to that. WOW! Reality bitch slapped me in the face. Okay, then after talking to the incredible man I married I realized, I was jealous because I wanted to be where she was already in her life and I felt like she was doing something important, shaping the college student of today into the leaders of tomorrow. Wait a minute, back it up back it up, beep beep beep... I'm doing something JUST AS IMPORTANT! Okay she teaches people things that they want to learn but I am incharge of teaching my twinks EVERYTHING. I have to teach them their alphabet and their numbers and colors and language and about the world and about life. I have to teach them about things that are fair and unfair. AND to top it all off, I AM THEIR WORLD RIGHT NOW! I'm everything to them. And there is no more important role for me right now than being their mother.

pow! right in the kisser

One of these days, I'm just going to disappear from the internets!

I was drunk, I didn't know that it would hurt. I am full of good excuses.

I woke up this morning and was able to have about 15 minutes to myself before the twinks woke up. That was a first which was really really nice.

I kinda just messed around for the time and then J came toddling out of the room. He's so funny when he has just woken up. Anyway, K followed closely after. She can't not follow her brother everywhere.

I am hungry and the chilluns have just settled down for a happy nappy so now is the time for me to eat something but am I? No. I'm blogging. Oh well, there's always time to eat.

Today I think I'm going to go to Walnut Creek for a spell. I have to finish buying mother's day stuff for the MIL and the SIL. Dark Chocolate form Leonidas for the SIL and something from the glass case from the Hallmark store? Who knows what else I may buy.

Neglecting Again

I'm neglecting blogging again. Why? I don't know. It's not like I have been busy or anything. I haven't really been doing much of anything except being the mom that I am. Home with the kids.

Friday was boring. And yesterday wasn't that much more exciting.

Life is just kinda passing by...

Right now the kids are laughing and I'm being told to take a nap. Guess we all need a time out.

I've got a story. Hope you like 'em gory.

I was really sad this morning because I looked at my userinfo page on LJ and I found out that someone I thought was a good friend of mine dropped me like a hot potato. No explanation or anything, just dropped me from her friends list. Like I said, made me sad because I really (and still do) like her a lot. She's funny and has a great life. But, c'est la vie. I hope she has a beautiful life because she's that cool. Anyway, then I realized, why the hell am I so sad. I didn't even know her in person. I mean she was cool but hey, maybe that's just the end of our internet friendship. So bid her a fond farewell.

This weekend seemed uneventful but it was nice. Saturday we just chilled and went over to the ILs house for dinner. We were suppose to cook dinner but we ended up buying food instead, which is always nice when I don't have to cook. We hung out and we did have homemade peach cobbler. I need to find a better recipe. It was good but not flaky enough. Hee...

Yesterday we spent the morning here at home just hanging out then we got ready and went to Mt. Diablo for some hiking and what not. It was FUN! We had a great time. Like we always do... It was HOT though. We didn't even have Spring. We went straight to Summer. So we got home and the kid sister and I went to Safeway and we had steaks. I love cow. Cow is good.

Today my girl JC came over. We hung out. We were suppose to go to Berkeley but because of the protests so we went and had Indian Food and that was that. We went to the park with the kids but I was unprepared...

Pretty much that's all...
