You know that old saying "Careful what you wish for?", it is so true. You think you want something, you get it and you think, eh, what was the fuss about?

Let's say you really want some cake. You watch what you eat for a whole week so you can have cake. You take a bite of the cake, and think "This is it? I waited for this". Weird isn't it.

Last night Krystal took the kids to a baseball game and Eric was gone so I had the house to myself. Oh yeah. I thought I would work late (but when I was so tired I couldn't type by 5:30 it was time to go home). Picked up something really good (but bad) to eat since it was just me. Watched a bit of MONK (which is always good and this one was with Sarah Silverman, classic). And after about an hour, the novelty wore off. Okay I was in my pj's (could have done that anyway), I had complete control of the tv, (and didn't have to turn it up to hear) I had the ac on (didn't have to turn it up high since I was the only one here) and, wasn't all it was cracked up to be.

Now, that doesn't mean I didn't start yelling once we got home. Actually I don't think we were even in the door yet, but those few hours, looking back were nice.

Bee Hive

I gotta throw away some pics and video's because I need room. Here is a picture of a bee hive we had in our backyard. Eric called someone to come out and they said to just wait and the bees would probably move on.

The next day we went out and the bee's were gone. There was nothing remaining. It was so weird. I am glad we had the photo because otherwise we would have thought we imagined it.


I am on a mission to find things to do. No reason, just can't spend as much time in front of my computer (unless I move it or get a new chair), we seemed to have misplaced our DS, and frankly TV is not quite my thing (although I recorded all of the MONK shows).

Yesterday Krystal and I pulled out all of the furniture and she swept while I foot swiffered behind, in front and around it. Krystal was sneezing all day (I would like to say I felt sorry for her but I didn't because she is supposed to move the furniture every time she sweeps). I washed the rugs too.

Today? Not sure. What will the day bring. I am doing a sort of Tackle it Tuesday each day but sometimes very, very small (i.e. I cleaned out the freezer door). I am sure whatever it is, I will let you know.

I am alive

Okay, so I have let my blog down. I haven't been here. You know it and I know it. The thing is, well I do so much in less than 140 characters who can think after that?

But alas I attempt to try again.

Yesterday Diego started Kindergarten and Siobhan started 2nd grade at a new school. Our Catholic school informed us over the summer that they would not reopen. Not enough enrollment. There were a lot of tears (and not just from Siobhan) because we really loved that school. The Principal, office staff, teachers and all the families were great. It was like a big family. K-8 and only 170 some students.

So they are attending the public school right outside of our neighborhood. It wasn't our first choice, but... The bonus is Carol (Eric's mom) is about 6 or 7 houses away from the school (she is half a mile from our house) and she can take Diego (he starts at 10:32) and pick them both us. I prefer that over daycare.

They also wear uniforms. I don't like that. At least the one's at the Catholic school are cute and different. These are just khaki or blue. Boring. But they CAN wear jeans and any closed toes shoes. It was so difficult to find shoes with no other color than black or white.

So, we will try it and see. I shall join the PTA at this school as well. I know it won't be the same, nothing could be, but we will get through it.

I am off to drop off Siobhan. Bonus that Diego can sleep in since he doesn't have to be there for TWO more hours.

Check back as I will do my best to blog.
