I just lost a whole blog and now must start again.............

We went on vacation last week mainly we stayed home and made lots of day trips around CA. My dear friend Stacy came from Ohio to visit and we were able to show her many parts of CA. We had a great time and miss her dearly now that she is gone back home. Here are a few pics

I have now had two breaks in the past week. My kids have both been invited to sleep over with families twice in one week.
WOW!!!! Two dates in one week we are living the high life now * laughs*

We went to see Transformers on the first date and if you are wondering "why?" go back to The Queen blog and know that Marty decided it was his turn to see a movie. It was a good movie that I did somewhat enjoy but I ended sitting next to a very rude, neurotic lady. I would go further into detail but won't for fear of disgracing myself in the process. I can tell you it was a doozy and by the end I wanted to tell her she owed me 9 dollars but didn't.

Tonight we went to dinner and Costco * I know,I know how sad is that..... I got a new spice rack there though and I am happy with that. It still was nice to be together without the kids for a little bit. I am missing them now though.

Here are your funny kid stories for the week:

Conner " SIs, is really the funny one around here she is such a silly girl"

Marty and I chuckle and Marty says " Conner you are funny when you are not trying to be funny buddy" isn't that the truth

Elizabeth and I were having a discussion about her room ( most of you know that she is famous for the state it usually is in) and I tell her it is "OK" that it is sometimes messy because that is what little girls do but that we need to clean it up when we are done with it. She smiles and says "That's what Tigger's do best is make messes and I am a Tigger" seriously my kids know how to crack me up to get out of things.

We had a minor crisis when she threw a book at Conner last night when they were supposed to be in bed. It was this book:

Which is a rather large book and so she gave him a bloody fat lip. Apparently, she wasn't mad and she was trying to be funny and he was coming in to take her Nintendo DS. He was crying and she was crying and I told them that this is why I put them to bed and expect them to stay there.

Concert for Diana

As many of you know I am a big, lifelong Diana buff and this concert was very important for me in many ways. I originally wanted to buy tickets and go to the concert but they weren't allowing kids under 12 and I wanted my children to go with me. So I resorted to watching the concert on VH1 all day and recording the one on NBC.

  I was so impressed at what William and Harry put together for their mother and the strength it must have taken to get through the day. I think most of the acts were geared toward their tastes. Duran Duran was disappointing to say the least and I thought that Nick Rhodes having to look at the notes on a laptop was a sign of the times. I really enjoyed Elton John's opening performance that made the hair on my arms stand up. I enjoyed watching Lilly Allen, Rod Stewart, P.Diddy, The Andrew Lloyd Webber presentation and the English national ballet is what my kids are still talking about.

 I think the most touching moment came at the end when the played never before seen movies of Diana set to a Queen song that really brought the whole day into perspective. I think it was a wonderful way to spend the day remembering her and that is what I did.

my new blog

I have been blogging for several years now on myspace but wanted to share with more people who choose not to join for numerous reasons. I am bringing over the archives of my old blog to here and posting those so I can have them all in one place. I always like to read the archives of a new blog that I start reading that way when something posts I am in the know of what they are alluding too. I love being able to share and express my self in written word and having a archive of past events. Bear with me as I am not a good writer or English major by any means. I am a wife and mom who wants a way to share with other wives and moms. I hope you enjoy as much as I enjoy reading other blogs myself.
