My new favorite thing...

I am always looking for things that save time, especially after going back to work. I started ordering my groceries from No dragging two screaming kids to the store! Then I found these. Once in a while, I will buy these. Not very often, though, because they don't come in wheat. Then I found Dream Dinners. I am so excited! I went today for the first time and made 6 meals in 40 minutes, for $50.00! My freezer is stocked for those "what the heck are we going to eat tonight?" nights. Basically, you go there and they have all of the fresh ingredients and you assemble the meals and package them to freeze. You can go with a friend and split 12 meals, and get 6 each (which is really 12 meals, because you can split those). I suggest you try it if you are short on time! (aren't we all?).

It's the plague! Stay away!

Last week, Cameron got some kind of stomach bug. Up all night throwing up. Then I got it. I thought we were over it, and then tonight he Does it again. I have seen more puke in one week than I need to see in a lifetime! Thank God for the carpet cleaner...

Potty Training-revisited

I had completely given up on Potty Training my child. After this post, I just decided to lay off. Well, Gracie kept saying "I go potty when I free (three)". That came and went. She started lying to people when they asked her. She would say "I go pee pee in potty!" (Liar). Then she started refusing to wear diapers and saying "I no wear diaper, I BIG girl!". Okey Dokey. Then why did you just pee all over the cart in the middle of Target without saying a word? So I insisted that if she didn't go in the potty, then she must wear diapers. Well, now we are trying it again and it is going well. So far two days without accidents. I know not to get too excited, though. Last time she went 6 weeks before she changed her mind!

10 Years

I can't belive it has been 10 years since I lost my Mom. I almost forgot. For some reason, I was thinking it was tomorrow. And on Tuesday, it will be 10 years since Scott lost his Dad.
10 years. Wow

Look Mom, no training wheels!

Fall leaves

I got nothin'.

Sorry, but true. Nothing to say. Work, eat, sleep, play with kids. Repeat. Nothing interesting at all. And yet, I still write about it. They are considering kicking out the really aggressive kid at school, which would make my life (at work) easier, but I am feeling guilty. Where is he going to go? I just wish we could help him in some way. My kids are not perfect, and Cameron certainly has his issues. What if his teacher just decided to kick him out? Now, his issues are nothing compared to this child, but still. It is hard. Oh, and I might be out of a job next year because they may combine the pre-k classes and the pre-k aide might take my job. I was surprisingly sad about it. Oh, look, I did have something to say after all.

Cool new bed

Cameron has been wanting one like this for a while and I finally found one on Craigslist. Craigslist rocks! Also, I think that anyone considering marriage should have to put one of these together. If you are both still alive at the end, go for it!

Fleet Week

This weekend was Fleet Week in San Francisco. Thousoands of people come out to see the Blue Angels. Cameron wasn't as impressed as I thought he would be, and Gracie just thought they were too loud! But we enjoyed it and We had our usual gorgeous fall weather.


Gracie was so tired that she fell asleep while on Scott's shoulders!

TGIT (Thank God It's Thursday!)

Thursday. My only day off during the week. What should I do? Go to lunch with Gracie? Go to the Gym? I'll probably clean the house. Sigh. I realized that every time the babysitter came, the first thing I would say is "sorry the house it such a mess". After 10 or so times of this, I just told her "I won't say that anymore, you can just see for yourself!!"

this is what I do instead of going to the gym...I love fall!

Children of the corn

We went to a fun corn maze yesterday. It took us a while to get out of it!
