Wow...5 years later!!!

Hello old blog....oh how I have missed you!  I just had the best time reading all of my old posts.  Some funny, some sad and some just really lame.  So to anyone who still has this in a is our family update!

Homer and I are looking forward to our 15 year anniversary this October!  He is working for a dermatologist up in Orange County doing SEO, web site design and management and oh so many other things.  He loves it and has been there for almost 3 years now!  I also do part time work for them from home which is so nice.  I can put in as many or as little hours I want.  
Pookie is now 14!!  She is in 8th grade and doing pretty good.  She was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis is August of 2010.  I have a whole other blog talking about that here if you'd like to check it out.  Boo Boo is in the 5th grade and buddy is in 3rd grade.  It's crazy because when I started this blog he was only 3 years old.  
We also now have a dog named Roxy.  She is about 5 years old.  
We are still living in the same house in San Diego and loving life.  Well, I think that's about all you need to know.  Lets just pray I don't ignore this blog for another 5 years!!

Twenty Days Until Jonas

Yes folks, it's true...I am taking my kiddos to the Joe Bros Concert. Why you ask? Well, actually I am probably as big a fan as they are. I like them for many reasons and #1 being that they are a wholesome Christian based family. It is so refreshing to have music and teen heart throbs that are positive for your kids to enjoy. Now that aside they are pretty darn cute and have some great songs. I bought the tickets a month ago and just told my girls on Friday night aftert the Camp Rock movie premiered on the Disney Channel. They are so excited!! We are seeing them in Ahaheim and I also recently found out that they are filming the concert. I imagine it's for their movie they are making. The nice added bonus of this show is that I now have three weeks of leverage to use any time I need the kids to help around the house or to just behave.

Long Time No Blog

Well hello friends. Yes, it has been a long time since I have blogged and I have no excuse! I just have not been feeling up to it I guess. I have however been investing lots of time into reading everyone elses blogs. I truly find it so fascinating to read about other peoples lives. Kinda like the grass is always greener over there syndrome.
A quick update for are out of school for the summer. They both had great years and did very well. Next year I will have all three of them in school.

I am off to a barbecue...not very well planned out I know...come here with only a few minutes to chat. But until next time......happy summer!!

Wow, where has the summer gone...

Wow, over a month since my last post. Believe me, I have thought about posting almost everyday but just never did.

Lets see, whats new around here....I have had a toothache for a couple weeks now...went to the dentist yesterday and I have to have a root canal. Sucks so bad....the only good part is that they gave me some drugs for the pain. I made my appointment for next thursday which happens to be boo boos 6th birthday.

Today we have a mandatory meeting at my work. I work at a heathy grocery store...a lot like Whole Foods but its a smaller chain here in So Cal. Anyway, the rumor is that we are being bought out by someone else. Everyone at work is getting worked up about what it could be. Are we closing, are we changing our uniforms, are we all getting big raises???

Boo Boo is turning 6 next week. We are having a party for her at a great local park. Summer birthdays are a bit hard because you lose touch with so many classmates. I made sure before school was out to get a list of all her friends and addresses. Out of the 14 invites I sent out I have heard from about half. Don't you hate that?? Its hard to plan. We are doing a Costco those and pizza. She is having a pirate theme so I want to get little treasure boxes and fill with gold coins or gold wrapped candies.

School is starting soon. We are pretty much ready. It's still very hot here so the first few weeks they will probably just wear summer clothes.

Well, there is your update...enjoy the rest of your summer.

Things I should have posted about but didn't...

Hello, yes I have been missing in action. I have noticed a lot of regular blogs that I read have been less active the past couple of weeks. Why? Well, it's summer and lots of people are either getting ready for vacation, on vacation or recovering from a vacation. I am in the the third category. We had a great week with all of our family. We did just about everything we wanted to. Legoland, Sea World, the fair, the beach and the pool. It was great, tiring but fun.

We kept the fun going the following week with another trip to Legoland (we have annual passes) for the 4th of July. My parents joined us and we had a great time.

This week has been a bit different. We started the week off with a trip to the beach. Tuesday I took the kids to see Rataloolie (sp?) and wen't to my parents pool afterwards. Around 5 p.m. we got a call telling us that my uncle Ted had suffered a major heart attatck and was in grave condition. He was one of the uncles who was just here for the reunion. As of today he is still in the hospital in bad condition. They are unsure of the outcome. He actually stopped breathing for a bit so they don't know if he suffered any brain damage. We are praying for a miracle....please join me.

I hope to be back soon with an update.....until then we will be enjoying the summer as best as we can.

Having a Wonderful Time.....

Well, we are on day 5 of our reunion. So far we have been to the pool, beach, Legoland, Sea World and had lots of laughs. Last night we sat in a big circle (about 20 of us) and shared our most emabarrassing or funny moments. My cousin Trish has so many!! Like one where they went to a drive in theater as teens and told the box office that their passenger in the car with them was blind(not true) so they wouldn't have to pay to get in. Since we are all friends here I will share is pretty funny...
When I was 19 I went out on a fancy date with a new guy I was dating. He was borrowing his dad's brand new beamer for the evening and taking me to a nice restaurant. So, I decided I was in need of a new outfit. So off I went and found a really cute crisp white bouse and black skirt. I got all ready and was getting approval from my cousins and aunts (who were all visiting) and suddenly we noticed that the blouse I had bought that had brass buttons over each bosom..........was a maternity shirt!! Well, they just could not stop laughing and making comments about easy access. I , being a young girl wanting to look perfect for this special evening was mortified. My date never knew but my family has never let me forget it.
Do you have a funny story to share....please leave it in my comments.

Here is a picture of the hotel where we will be hanging out at all week. It's right on Mission Bay. My cousins (5 families) are all staying here in the villas or suites. We will just drive down there for the day and then come home in sleep in our own cozy beds at night.
Anyway, it is only 7 am and I have not heard a peep from any of my cousins who arrived very late last night and are currently probably sleeping at a hotel only 10 miles from my house.
