Movie Night at the Jasso's

Last night the Jasso's big and small gathered around the TV to watch a movie. There was a fire glowing in the fireplace, popcorn all around and the lights turned off. The event? Creature of the Black Lagoon.

I hadn't seen it before. Diego was laying on the floor with Bradley and fell asleep before it finished (it started at 9). Siobhan watched the whole thing. When the Creature first showed his hand, Diego's eyes were open wide.

Today, they both say they liked it. Diego said "why did you put me to sleep I wanted to watch it". He doesn't get that he was already asleep. Next week, Return of the Creature of the Black Lagoon.

As a side note, there was a Twilight Zone on afterwards that I had never seen. (Thought I had seen them all). Buster Keaton. It started out as a slient movie until he used a time machine to the 1960's. Good one!

I HAD to post this!

Eric and I have always enjoyed Indian music. This guy is a serious singer, but he did this song for fun. Listen to it, it will get stuck in your head! The video is pretty funny too!

Last one, I promise!

No more vacation

Back to work today. Ahh, nice being back to work. Everyone misses you. Wonders where you were, what you were doing.

Tomorrow my boss and I are driving to Ventura (90 miles EACH way) for a meeting. OH MY GOSH! I can't believe some people drive that each day. We are meeting at 7am at Starbucks and hopefully will make it there by 9:30. My work has an office there so we are hoping to stop and visit them as well. I have never been to that office, hoping to not go again anytime soon either. ha ha

We finally decided where to have Siobhan's birthday party. She turns 6 on the 31st. Everyday she wants to know if we can go get the stuff for the party bags. Geez, we have almost two weeks! I am trying to get a count here! You can't just go buying bags if you don't know how many kids are coming. She invited all the girls in her class. Sounds like a lot but it was only nine.

Diego is finally getting this potty thing. I know Andrea, I know. He has been going poop on the potty for almost forever, but pee, who cares. He lets it flow. It is our fault too. We have been using pull ups, nothing to make him go. I think it is because he is our baby. What is the rush! I think we are over the "he is our baby thing". ha ha He has been doing well.

Eric is off this week to stay with Diego. His mom (his usually watcher) finds out on Friday when she gets out of rehab. Until then, we will continue taking turns.

Siobhan is watching Happy Days. She likes that and Brady Bunch. Innocent shows. You gotta love that!

Today, um, not so much

The last two days have been so beautiful. The kids have spent the whole day outside playing. Finally our HUGE backyard being put to use. The older kids earning a little extra cash working the backyard. Today, cloudy and rainy. It wouldn't be a big deal if it weren't a holiday. Ah, I will be thankful for what we had.

Watching the football game yesterday where is was really cold made me really thankful. We have a fire right now, ahh nice.

I am ON vacation

So, I am on vacation this week and where did I end up? WORK! ha ha am I dedicated or what? I scheduled something this week so I had to go in, I didn't mind. I LOVE my job. I kept telling everyone "I am not here I am on vacation!" ha ha

It has been wonderful being able to pick Siobhan up from school. I wish I had some sort of adjusted schedule where I could do it everyday. It has been really cool being with Diego everyday too. I think we are closer because of it.

Siobhan told me she had a headache at school today. She said "Do you think it was my brain actually?" She is too much!
She is running a temp though, she NEVER gets sick! She's been coughing too, I think she might have a bit what I STILL have!

Oh, I think I will post the books I just finished reading!

Playing "stay at home mom"

I am off this week, well mostly because Eric's mom is still in rehab. She usually watches Diego. Krystal has been watching him the last week but she is back to school today. Eric will take off next week. After that, we will see but will share the load.

I have to go in on Wednesday for a video conference with one of our other sites. It is also one of my staff's birthday's so Eric will stay home and I will just go in the whole day. Today Diego and I dropped the girls off at school and went out for breakfast. Then we went to the market and are back home watching Toy Story. I love to hear him laugh. He quotes the dang movie all of the time.

Our dryer went out. Why! I went to Sears on Saturday. They have a mail in rebate that is effective on Sunday for free delivery. Okay, I will come back on Sunday. I went in Sunday. The only person who was working that department mother had died and there was no one there until the afternoon. I came home and told Eric that maybe our dryer was going to start working again. (I tried it, no such luck!) I am going to Howard's today. I like them better anyway and they don't charge you $10 to haul away your old one.

I haven't been online too much. Eric got me the newest Sims expansion pack and I am still hanging on to whatever illness this is that I have. I think I might actually take a nap today. Playing at stay at home mom is better than actually staying at home because I am almost positive that no stay at home mom actually gets a nap!

Eh? Speak up? I can't hear you!

I swear it feels like there is a sock in my right ear. My throat feels a bit (just a tiny bit) better, but my head and my eye. ow! Diego started coughing and has a runny nose. Wonderful. The medicine I gave him seemed to help his cough a lot.

We went to Bradley's soccer game today and it was freaking cold! We left the house about 2 and it was not so cold. We went and got Diego's haircut and headed to the game. We got there about 3:15 and man, the wind was blowing and it was cold. I am not usually cold and I was COLD! I wished I had brought a blanket instead of just a sweatshirt.

Siobhan was complaining she had to go potty. K could not find one open. I kept telling Siobhan she could go like they do in the woods but she wouldn't have any of that! ha ha I tried and tried to talk her into it, but eventually we found an open restroom at the school.

It is supposed to storm. So far it is raining, sort of. Based on the news, Storm-watch 08, you would think it is going to rain for 40 days and 40 nights. We will see. We will see.

Someone SHUT the door!

Someone let a bug in. A big bug. A virus kind of bug! I am S I C K! Grrr. Came on New Year's. Eric and I took S and D to lunch and I said "my throat kinda hurts". Eric said it is probably because of all the winds, makes sense. I have asthma so the Santa Ana's effect you in all sorts of ways. So, I figured he was right.

I couldn't sleep that night. My throat HURT! I tried spray. ffftt, that sore throat bounced that spray right off. "ha ha you will do NOTHING to help here spray. In pain she must be!".

Yesterday I went and loaded up on dayquil and nyquil (my tried and true favorite) gel-caps. I took a daytime on as soon as I got home, drank a lot of Gatorade and relaxed. I felt among the living. Took nyquil last night, and still couldn't sleep. At first I couldn't sleep because Eric was laughing at all the noises I was making. (nice babe!). I woke up thinking "what IS that noise", only to find it was me! We laughed at that one! I kept waking up. Eric was waking me up, "Turn over". I can't even blame him. I finally went to the couch to watch a little tv.

This morning, ouch! I think Eric is right, it has something to do with sinus'. I feel pretty much okay otherwise (except tired!). I did not want to get up this morning (really closer to afternoon). I am armed now with a hot shower and some more dayquil. I think I am going to go get a coffee from this wonderful new coffee shop right by us. THAT will make me feel better! ha ha

Keep healthy out there people. Oh and for you So Cal people, they say it is going to ACTUALLY rain. Real rain, not the stuff we usually call rain. Be CAREFUL! (It probably won't even rain, they are never right!).
