where ya been, who'd you see, what'd you do?!

i finally answered
the last three days' comments.
in their respective boxes.

so i need to figure out
how to make time.

for cooking dinner
for blogging.
for sleep.
for everything else
that goes with being a mom/wife.
it's a good thing this job is only a few
hours a day so far.
this past weekend was a blur.
starting with thurs.

bekahboo's 16th.

which means my boy one will be there in oh
nine weeks!!
friday was sick day.
saturday meant catching up before
the new job.
sick days only mean you move your
chores one day over!!
laundry, shopping, cooking.
new job orientation.
arieah's birthday party.
lots of kids and lots of relatives.
(we're mexican)

which brings me to today.

You must post the rules before you give your answers.-
You must list one fact about yourself for each letter of your middle name.
Each fact must begin with that letter.-
If you don't have a middle name, just use your maiden name. -

At the end of your post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name.
(Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and need to read your blog for details).

tagged by steph.
i'll play along with the tag
but i'll use my *first* name
no use of the middle name here. :)

g- grouchy before my morning coffee
l- laughs at "stupid funny" movies like "happy gilmore"
o- ornery when the mood strikes
r- remembers when big macs were served in styrofoam containers
i- incredibly irritable today. being a girl sucks.
a- antiques thrill me.

this says i need to tag someone.
like 6 someones.

then i choose
dani m
dani a
and carrie
all of whom can be found
to the right under bliggity bloggity bloo.

heck, it's always good to share a little something
about yourself. :)

yesterday i

found a cool tree.

watched my girl practice.

and finished the valentine tree.

(which i purchased at hobby lobby.)

we have a family dinner tonight.
wish me luck.
(or pray they serve martinis at the restaurant.)

how can you not

want it?

ps: comments for the last two days
are in that day's comment box.
love you gals!! you always make me feel

Wednesday, February 6, 2008


i got sidetracked.

(click to enlarge)

wide open spaces.

it seems that is what i am missing.

dani asked to see some more pics
of the city i live in.
and i will try to get out there and snap some...
but i have to tell ya.
the city looks ugly to me.

i am not sure how one can feel homesick
for a country that isn't one's "home"
but it seems this is the case.

i miss oporto
and michel's patisserie
and freakin baker's delight finger buns.

i miss movie theatres in the mall
and boost juice
and my beloved rouse hill fruit barn.

i miss my gals at the rouse hill aus post
and my newsagent, who held an issue of
DOG magazine for me, just so the girl one
wouldn't miss out.

i miss aldi's and a clean maccas
and the boab trees in front of
the mean fiddler.

i even miss $12/kilo bananas.

on a totally different note:
i will be making little decs for this today.

odd weather

for a february day.

it's more of the same here
in texas.
looking for a bit of excitement.
or something.

i start my new job on sunday.
i am hopeful. :)

be well, peeps.

Monday, February 4, 2008

not mine.

i'm not feelin it today peeps
so i should throw my pic up and find something
to do with this blah.

stevie is my brother
abi is my sister.
my kids aren't so brash to each other.
at least not to my knowledge. :)
katie: the last pic was straws.
i moved my hand at the
last minute.
i love mistakes like that.
365: uhm, yeah, immodium in the
vending machine.
that should've
been a clue
right there, huh??

Sunday, February 3, 2008

oh. okay.

you know how some people post
overheard conversations
or just conversations they've had that day?
they are so sweet
and cute.


here's mine:

stevie to abi (who is playing guitar hero.)
"abi you suck."
abi to stevie: "stevie, you just got served
you suck [jumbled word] balls."
me to abi: "mc donald balls?"
stevie and abi to me:
"DONKEY balls!!"
me: "oh, okay."

why does my coffee sizzle?

it kind of freaks me out.
when i pour it, it sizzles like
bacon on a hot surface.

makes me wonder what it's doing to my insides.
(but not enough to make me stop drinking it.)

this freaks me out.

birds on a wire.

this makes me laugh.

(i took this pic before i quit the phone job.)

this means it was windy

and this means i was bored.

enjoy what's left of your weekend peeps...
today i cheer for the refs.
because, let's face it,
if the cowboys aren't in it,
who cares who wins??
