Last Day

Well another year of blogging once a day is ending. I like it when it comes along. It reminds me to allow my mind to wander. I do often think in more than 140 characters (although not always).

This November has gone quickly. Christmas will be here quickly. I am somehow going to get through this holiday and not be completely broke by the 24th. haha no more figuring out how to eat for the rest of the month.

Day one with the iPhone at work

Today is day one with the iPhone at work. I'm currently writing this via voice. I watched a little Netflix at lunch. I have definitely going have to bring my charger. It is nice to be able to text my husband during the day. I haven't taken too many pictures yet. It's funny but since it's new I don't want anyone to see Me with it. No need to show off the new toy. I can't wait to see all the wonderful things this Siri can do

Lazy Sunday

A trip to Target. Reading. Watching TV. Turntable.

It's hot. Why is it so hot in late November. I almost turned the ac on

I fell

yesterday. Oh man did I hurt my knee. Diego and I were putting the cart away at BevMo. We had to push our cart hard to get it into the other one, and the one on the other side went out. I was trying to run and catch it before it hit this lady's car and I tripped over Diego's foot.

Eric said he saw a lady talking to Diego and wondered "where is Di?"

Diego started crying, he thought it was his fault. Eric asked if I was okay. I said yes because Diego was so upset but I whispered No. Poor baby boy. Poor me. I think I shall live.

iPhone 4s

Eric and I were waiting and waiting because we knew that Apple would improve on the iPhone 4 and that someday they would go to Sprint.

So the news was out, they were going to Sprint and it was the iPhone 4s. Not completely new but totally different.

Watching the videos on Siri, I was blown away. Eric, we have to get those. Off to the Sprint store I go.

Will we get a discount?

What plans will you have?

What, when, where?

They knew NOTHING! I knew it wasn't the girl's fault but I was so mad.

Forget it.

Weeks and weeks later, Eric comes home with two.

I LOVE it. I may never have to type again!

Some things about me

I might have said all this before, but who cares. No one reads this anyway. c I don't spell well at all.

I HATE spiders. Not that I don't like them. I am scared. They make me want to curl up in a ball and cry.

I like to sort socks (but only when I like to)

I go through phases where all I will do is read and then I can't be bothered to pick up a book for weeks.

I like to cook on Sundays. I can make a big meal, but I don't care for it the rest of the week.

I like loud music

My husband is my best friend and the love of my life. The spark is still there

The La Galaxy won the MLS Cup! It was SO amazing. Yes there was rain. Yes we were wet. Who cares, it was GREAT! Here is a photo of us all of us pre-game.

That blur in the corner is my husband. haha and yes that is me with a bottle of tequila in hand.

Sunday, November 20, 2011


Today is the day that the LA Galaxy are going to win the MLS cup. I just know it. They just have too. I will make a prediction of 3-1 Galaxy.

Big a@@ tumbleweed

I was driving down the street today when I noticed a big ass tumbleweed. In Anaheim?! WTH. haha I LOVE tumbleweeds! Since the light was red, I thought I would take a picture.

Click on the picture for a full view

It is probably hard to tell how big it is so I took a picture of it next to my car. That thing is HUGE!

When I started working for the company I work for (13 years ago), it was 7.7 miles from my home. That was great. A quick trip on the freeway and I was there.

Then after many years we moved. We moved closer. Actually to the same city I live in. 3.8 miles away. Still took me about the same amount of time to get back and forth to work (10 minutes) but it much more relaxed. Much more! No freeway. I go down a nice street. Casual.

Lately coming home I need a new route. It is dark when I leave and I can't see very well in the dark and I go through some neighborhoods.

Seems as though I won't have to worry about it because after six years of working and living in the same city (I know not many people can say that), we are moving again.

Yep, another move. We need it. Smaller is necessary. We are moving....4.0 miles away. Ha ha I LOVE it. I could hop on the freeway or I could take a street. Either way. Whatever. Bliss

Turkey Day

Eric and I haven't really had a big deal Thanksgiving. We are both grateful to have the day off (and the next day too) but no big call for a huge meal.

This year our friends Emma and Mikey will be joining us. They are from England. Emma is a wonderful cook. She offered to cook dinner for us. I, of course, accepted. I have no problem with this. None whatsoever!

She sent me our menu. Please see below.


Prawn Cocktail

Pate on Toast


Chicken & Beef


Mashed potatoes

Roast Potatoes

Yorkshire Puddings


Pigs in blankets



Sticky Toffee Pudding

One other thing but undecided.

Oh man I am so excited. It is going to be amazing!

The LA Galaxy cup final is on Sunday. Diego was scheduled to have his team pizza party at 1 so we figured we would go as soon as possible. Now they have rescheduled the games that we missed due to rain and there is one at 3pm. Obviously he will have to miss it. We are hoping to reschedule the party as well. I know he is going to be sad to miss another game but the boy does have his priorities.

As different as Night and Day

I always laugh (well not ALWAYS) when I walk into Diego's room. When I walk into Siobhan's room I smile. They are so different. I have posted photos of Diego's bed and Siobhan's bed. This is what they look like each and every day. Siobhan never has to be reminded to make her bed. Diego has to be threatened to make his.

I suppose if I were a better mom I might make his bed up for him, but I am not. Not to mention we have already been through two children and frankly, it isn't worth the bother. I think I will have to continue to "show" Diego how to make his bed though. Enjoy and warned. haha

Siobhan's bed (She only has a shirt there because she had to change right before we left)

Diego's bed

What is that on there? A non inflated soccer ball, a folder, a sweater, some pj's, an extra blanket and I have no idea what that black thing is. It looks like what I put my iPad in in my purse.

Change is hard. Change is difficult to say the least.

Maybe the worst part of change is when you think you are trying. Making an effort. Feeling as though you are changing a bit everyday only to find out others don't see it the same.

Maybe change doesn't mean what we think or how we feel but how it is perceived. Maybe it isn't change until someone else says something like "Wow, is that a new hair color?" or "You've lost weight".

Maybe the changes in how you think you are doing are really nothing at all. Of course this means all the thoughts and hard work you thought you were doing mean nothing. That can't be the case though...right?

How do you define change?

Rain and Soccer

Don't go well together. Well, especially not at Diego's age. He missed last weeks game (which was okay because it was first thing). I think he will probably miss tomorrows game if it rains as it is supposed to. It is supposed to start tonight at 10pm and go all day tomorrow.

Although I have never heard of it, they are going to try and have make up games. I think that is great! Diego was so sad he missed a game and may miss another.

We will be waiting and checking the website to see if the game is on!

I got nothing. I am excited to watch Grey's Anatomy though. Looks like a tear jerker.

Eric and I have been watching a show on BBC (we LOVE BBC) called Whitechapel. It is a modern day Jack the Ripper. Good show. Not as good as Luther but good!

tonight's dinner

I made a household favorite tonight. Hobo dinners. Simple. Easy. Yummy

Ground beef into a patty with onion and whatever veggies you want. Tonight I used brussel sprouts, baby carrots, mushrooms and potatoes. A pat of butter and seasoning all on a piece of foil.

You pull the foil up tight (like a Hobo's bag) and bake in the oven, straight onto the rack. We have an old oven so I let it go about an hour. I always have two or three that have just veggies. So if you don't eat meat, it is still great with just veggies.

This is what it looks like when it is done. See all the juice? It is from the meat and the butter. It makes everything taste amazing.

One for everyone. Pour into a bowl and you are all set. No clean up!

early day

Eric and I got off work early today for Siobhan's Parent Teacher conference. It went well (of course). See photos tomorrow!

We skipped lunch and went out to eat linner about 3ish. I have had a bath, Diego has pj's on and Siobhan is almost done with her homework and it is only 6pm!

I really, really want to go lay down. Only I know if I do, I will wake up in the middle of the night or not able to sleep later. So what will happen, same as yesterday, is I will end up staying up too late because I miss the window! haha Mr. Sandman has moved on!

Why do I still have to use HTML on here for a new paragraph? Geez!

Busy Weekend

This last weekend was so busy, It was wonderfully busy. Friday night included some shopping, watching tv with the kids and

Saturday's game (Diego) was rained out (from Friday). I bought clippers for the cat and cut her hair. In all honestly she looks like crap but at least her hair is short. I scratched her all over today and saw no hair come off. I think I will get better with time (let's hope).

Saturday night our friends Mikey and Emma went with us to Dia Las Muertos (Day of the Dead) in Santa Ana. We had fun. Ran into a couple of our cousins. We had a little bit to eat there and then stopped a hole in the wall taco place to fill out. They came over and we enjoyed their new puppy Ralph and I think they left around 2:30am (old time, haha).

Sunday was the La Galaxy game. I dropped Siobhan off at Albertsons because she had to sell Girl Scout nuts with her troop. Eric, Diego and I headed out to Carson. Luckily it did not rain! Had a good time at the tailgate. I had about...oh....a few shots of tequila. Maybe a few and then a few more. haha It was a little bit cold but everyone had fun. Of course the Galaxy WON! Which is amazing.

Eric called today to try and get a ticket for Siobhan to the game (currently we have 3 tickets but next year we will have 4), but they are already sold out. Man, that game is going to be amazing. I can't wait!

crap, I almost forgot

that i need to blog. tonight the Galaxy won and will be going to the Championship! Two more weeks!

Saturday, November 05, 2011

I finally did it

Today I went and bought some clippers to cut my cat's hair. I looked at reviews, prices, and thought f it. I bought the one they had at K-Mart. It works pretty well. I will post a picture later. Just remember, it works well, doesn't mean I do. Doesn't mean I did a good job. I just gave her a bath last night and now she is going to need another one because of all the loose hair. Poor baby. She was SO good too. She didn't like it. To do her belly, I had to hold her like a baby in one arm. Luckily she is used to being held like that. Oh and the hair color I sprayed her with on Halloween that we thought came off with the bath...nope. Underneath it was still there. That cat had a lot of hair.

I feel I don't know what I want to write about. If I wait too long there will be too much tequila in the system and who knows what I will say. Doing a little I really enjoy this. I haven't had a chance to DJ much tonight but it is still fun to hang out. Maybe I shall write again tonight

La Galaxy

Tonight the La Galaxy won 2 to 1 against the New York Red Bulls. I thought it was going to go differently as we were down by a point in the first few minutes of the game. But we can back and won! Yeah. Another game Sunday night!

have you heard of My husband told me about it and I love it! This is a screen shot of my favorite room. I am in there somewhere
You choose an avatar and pick a room with music you like and go there. When there is a free DJ spot, you head on up and play a tune. People either think it is "awesome" or "lame". For every person who likes it, you get a point. More points, different avatars. People can "fan" you and you can have favorite rooms. This makes it easier to find people you are a fan of when you are looking for a room to enter. You can create a room, but I haven't tried that yet. You can tweet or FB that you are in a room and it tells what room you are in and what song is playing. I like to tweet when I am playing something really cheesy. If you try it, look me for, CucsMom!

How am I supposed to do this?

When I am all over the place? I am a very unorganized person and I just feel even more so lately. Right now Siobhan is trying to organize her Girl Scout nut order. We had to go pick it up and they didn't get half the order but it is my fault! I used the wrong e-mail address. It really isn't a big deal for two reasons. One, they are taking more orders and two, people haven't paid yet. If they don't get the nuts, they won't care (or remember). I am looking forward to getting back to every day blogging. I know Julie will keep me on my toes. haha I love competition!
