For me, for my Sims

This is a picture of my new computer, and yes that is a remote! Did I need a new computer? Well, no, not really. But let me tell you, my Sims2 sure are a lot faster now. My husband loves me, what can I say! Thanks babe!

Viva la fun!

73-71 UCLA

Wow, that game last night was amazing. I heard a little on the radio while I was walking. I talked to one of the dad's at Bradley's practice who filled me in up to half time. On the way home there were about five minutes left. I walked into the house with about 1.8 mimutes left. That is when it all happened. UCLA kicks ass. Don't cry Morrison!

Poor Little Diego

We took Diego to the doctor last night to have his ears checked. The nurse came out and said "Diablo Jasso". Ha ha, for those of you who don't know, that is spanish for devil. I said "Diablo? Well, sometimes". It was funny, everyone was looking! Poor little Diablo, I mean, Diego.

Disney Princess plus one!

Siobhan really enjoyed the Disney Princess on Ice.

Mommy and Princess Siobhan


7 miles we walked yesterday. I didn't do too bad considering I haven't been really walking for the last two weeks. ( I missed one Saturday because I was sick and I didn't walk at all that week. Missed last Saturday because it was canceled due to the big storm, yeah right.) Julie and I talked to whole way which made it nice. There was one lady who came back from her run soon after Julie and I returned and she said she was so bored. She said she should never have left the people she was with. I think seven miles on my own (iPod's not allowed), every step would seem forever.

We found out what hotel we will be at. We will be at the Doubletree Hotel San Diego Mission Valley. It looks really nice. It isn't until June 4th, but it feels so much closer. I am sure it will be here before we know it. Thanks to everyone for your support!

Siobhan is getting ready (thanks to big sister Krystal) and I am waiting. Siobhan and I will be heading out to DISNEY ON ICE presents PRINCESS CLASSICS. I have had the tickets for a while and I just told her the other night that we were going. I didn't want to be asked each and everyday when we were going. "Is it today" for three weeks. There are a whole bunch of us from work going with our daughters so we got really good seats at a great price. Pictures will follow I am sure!

Aaliyah, Natalie's baby

want one?

Someone asked if this comes with a USB connector. Hee hee

Can't touch this!

I know that you have asked yourself (probably outloud) "Whatever happened to MC Hammer?" Well, wanna read his blog? Check it out! Hammertime!

I don't normally do these, but...

I am grumpy today. No one reason, who knows why. I really just want this day to be over and I still have to go get dog food. Totally slipped my mind all day. GREAT. Can't send the darn dogs out to buy their own now can I? At least Krystal was willing to make dinner.

Now if some magic fairy would come and clean Siobhan and Diego's room....

broke down

I was a bit late to work today. It was my boss' birthday and we were having a breakfast potluck. I stopped and bought pancakes from my local diner and they took FOREVER! No big deal. I don't get in trouble or anything for being late. So, I have my pancakes in hand and I am driving the three minutes to work, and the tears start coming. I don't know why and I can't control them. I can't sit and let them pass, what if my pancakes get cold? So I compose myself and go in, I am talking to a few people and I feel it coming again. I look at one of my friends, who suddenly looks worried and all I can think is "Please let me make it out of this room before I break down.". I sorta did. I cried on my friend's shoulder for a while and felt a little better. What happened? Where did that come from? The day felt pretty down after that.

It is almost six months since my Dad died. Maybe that is it? I don't know. I miss him like crazy. I wish I could hear him say something smart ass (which would have been just about anything out of his mouth). Or a hug. A hug would be wonderful. Oh.....

Okay, bad mom here. I finally took Diego to the doctor today. He has two ear infections and a sinus infection. GREAT! Well, at least it explains him being a brat lately. So, I will be fighting with him for the next 10 days to see that he actually swallows some of the medicine!

We finally turned the heater on last night. It was the first time too. I honestly thought we would make it through the whole year without turning it on. Eric ended up opening the window sometime in the night. Oh well.... keep warm!

I need more time

I wish I was able to work a four day week at work. I feel like I never have enough time. I STILL haven't seen my cousin's baby and she is getting ready to go back to work. I want to go see Natalie but I just can't find the time. We are so busy on Saturday, that when Sunday comes, forget it. I just want to stay at home. It would be so nice to have one extra day a week when the kids are at school, Siobhan could be at preschool if I needed her to be and I could.. ahh, I could do whatever. Now I know I am dreaming!


This is a crack up. Yesterday through eyes of tears because my head was going to explode, I checked the weather on the internet. It was not raining at the time I checked and it was around 4pm. The forecast told me it would stop raining in the early evening. What?! I mean, can't they update it. It obviously wasn't raining, so how is it going to stop.
Weather people know nada. Any one of us could get up there and tell the weather. They can't even get today right but they give us a seven day forecast now. When will all this stop? Why not just use the Farmers Almanac and be done with it. I say poohy to weather people!

still home

I am finally starting to feel better at 2:38pm. I don't think my head is going to explode, for the moment anyway. So there I am feeling good when I read Andrea's blog and she made banana nut bread. I am a failure as a mother and a wife. I can not tell you the last time I "made" anything. My husband says (truthfully) I don't cook, I heat things. ha ha. It is true. Ok, I am going to blame it on my oven. Yes, it is because of my oven I don't make anything. It doesn't cook evenly and takes too long, yes that is it. (Although really, how would I know, I never use it!)

I really need to do more stuff like that. We all think it doesn't matter, but I remember my mom always making something yummy. We almost always had dessert too. How many families actually have dessert nowadays?

Anyway, Andrea, you rock. I admire you for doing stuff like that. I can't blame my lack of baking, which I actually enjoy on anything. I have plenty of time on Sunday's and usually love to make a big dinner. I think, thanks to you, I will start trying to do something extra too. Maybe not a bread (although I do know people who will say "Don't throw those bananas away, I will make some bread with them"), who are these people? I can bet you I only have about half the ingredients I would need. I would have to go to the store, then I might as well buy some while I there, already prepared, and throw the banana's to the dogs. Oh I am sad!

not feeling well

sickness has taken over the Jasso household. I started feeling bad Friday evening, really bad Saturday, and better Sunday. Oh until Sunday night at 3am (or Monday morning). I stayed home from work today. My head feels like it is going to explode. It doesn't matter how much medicine I take, it still hurts. Eric stayed home to watch the young-ins but he isn't feeling well either. After lunch Diego took a nap so Eric and I talked Siobhan into laying down with us for a nap. She fell asleep but coughed the whole time, the phone rang, she woke up... I think I slept somewhere between that, but not very well. Eric took a nice nap for about 4 hours but he still doesn't look good. Siobhan seems okay. Diego's nose is still runny and he is crying a bit easier than normal, Krystal sounds like she is getting sick, Bradley is okay.

I have a really big meeting at work tomorrow. I told my boss I planned to be a hundred percent by tomorrow and she said something along the lines of you can plan it but it doesn't always happen. She was real sweet. The way I feel now, there is no way I am going to work. So I hope somehow, overnight, the sickness will fly out the open window and we will all be glowing with health.
Siobhan asked today if doctors go to doctors for doctor appointments. I told her yes. She said "but they have to put on their regular clothes first".

Gosh, kids are great!

Happy Birthday Daddy. I miss you so much. I hope you are having a HUGE piece of cake with lots of ice cream!

HEY everyone

Nan sent pictures. In case you don't know who Nan is, she was our exchange student. She lives in Thailand and stayed with us for a year. She went back home in June of 2005, soon after Diego was born. I was so glad she was able to be here when Diego was born (she changed diapers too, BONUS). Siobhan still talks about her every day or so. She will be going to college in June. I hope we keep getting lots of pictures from her. I miss her!

Here are Nan's pics

How come when it is time for your long break at work, it is always called a lunch? If you go in to work at 5am and you "lunch" is at 8 or 9, it is called lunch. If you work late and you have your "lunch" at 1am, it is called lunch. Why is that?
