Birthday Party

We went to a birthday party yesterday for a girl in Siobhan's class. They only live about 2 minutes away. They had SO much food. A big jumper (which they didn't get to enjoy too much because it started raining) and karaoke. Oh man, it was funny. I am really glad because I got to meet three of the mom's. They all seem so nice. I talked to one almost the whole time. It made it nice because we were one of the first one's there and the rest of the people were family or friends. So it gave us someone to hang out with! Siobhan took home the biggest gift bag I have ever seen. These were real bags. She had a lot of fun playing with all the girls. I even let her do her nails. One of the hardest things about a new school is you have to meet all new parents. These are girls she will go to school with for at least the next 8 years, so if I can find a few mom's I like, BONUS!

Filet of..tater sauce

Last night we went to Sprint to sign up for a new plan and get phones. The guy was nice but what a talker. When we finally got out of there, we went to McDonalds to get the filet of fish (Lent!). Got home and I opened mine, there was NO fish in it. Can you believe that? ha ha It actually tasted better that way. I have a free one coming my way next week! Lucky me!

Clean Sheets

Isn't it amazing how clean sheets can make everything so much better. I sleep so much better every time I they are clean. If only I could wash them every three or four days! (Not that they get dirty that fast, they just feel different!)

Beautiful Weekend!

Ah, nice long beautiful weekend! Yesterday (Saturday) Siobhan had dance and then I took her and Diego to the Santa Ana Zoo . It was fun. We rode the train, went through the maze, feed the goats and they made lady bugs out of red rocks! It was fun. The last time we went we signed up for a membership. We often get memberships and don't utilize them. I am bound to use this one. Plus they have a great play area! Siobhan wanted to ride the elephant but I told her she had to wait until Daddy was with us.

Last night Krystal went with her friend out to eat and to the Block for a movie. The rest of us enjoyed some Dairy Queen and watched The Mummy on KDOC TV Endless Classics . Well, Diego fell asleep but the rest of us watched it. Next week is The Mummy's Hand!

Earlier in the day, I woke up from my nap (going to the zoo is hard work, ha ha) and I was looking for Siobhan. She was asleep in her bed. That is so not her. Eric said Diego came out of his room, and he asked Diego "Where is your sister", and Diego told him she was laying down. When she woke up she had a fever. It was 101.4, not too bad, but this kid is never sick. Loaded her with meds and juice, it went down later in the day. She has a little cough but otherwise seems good. There have been kids are her school out for a week or more. Hope she doesn't get whatever that is!

Today I am going to visit my friend Cheryl. She had knee surgery about a week and a half ago. Just going to take her lunch and visit for a bit! I miss seeing her everyday! The younger kids are busy playing outside and the older one's are busy working outside. I am trying to think of something new and fun we can do tomorrow to enjoy the day off. Ah, not only a long weekend but a short work week. Eric is off Friday so he only has to work three days. Lucky dog!

Enjoy the sunshine!

A scare

So my mom was in the hospital for chest pain. She had an angiogram. Turned out she is a big faker. Thank goodness she is fine. She was in the hospital for three days but the turn out was she is great!

Scared me. I told her not to do that again! Really, I can't even begin to describe the feelings I had. Glad it is over and turned out as it did.

Where have YOU been?

Yesterday we had Siobhan's 6th birthday party. It was a lot of fun. We had it at Irvine Park. Great turn out. She got so many presents! Spoiled brat. She got a lot of clothes too, which of course she loves. She is such a girly girl!

Today I took Krystal to Urgent Care. Her asthma has been bugging her. When we got there her Pulse/Ox was 89/90. Okay, I felt bad. I was giving her a hard time about taking her. She is drama! They gave her a breathing treatment which did nothing. They gave her an IV and Prednisone (steroids) which helped a little bit and another breathing treatment. When we left she was up to 95/96. For all of you out there who don't know it should be 100%. 89% is LOW!

They are putting her on two weeks of Prednisone (usually only 5 days). No school tomorrow (she is not to stay home by herself) and no track for TWO weeks! K is so upset. They have their first meet on Friday. She won't be able to run.

She hasn't had an asthma problem in a very long time. I can't even remember the last time. She will be loaded up with stuff now! I know she is going to be a PAIN on these meds. They make her crazy.

Our Urgent Care visit went well. I haven't used it before at this location because we are always able to get an appointment. We waited only about 2 minutes before being called in. This is not uncommon with asthma. They usually get you pretty fast and people always look at you because you seem fine and they have been waiting. It was about 20 minutes before the Dr. came in. Nice place though, we got good attention and they seem to get most people in and out pretty quickly. (I know because we were there for about 4 hours). I think they let us go because they were closing soon, ha ha.

Oh, over all it was a very good weekend. Andrea, I wish I could have given you our visit history instead of your own.
