Enjoying the sunny weather

I made breakfast for the twins since Garrett was gone at a friends. Then I rushed to get to church on time, 9am. I was serving in the nursery and we only had one baby. I walked the dogs, mopped the wood floors and made lunch for the whole gang. Now I am going to watch a Julia Roberts movie "Duplicity" Boys are at baseball practice and the girls are playing in their room, the dogs are sleeping and I get some piece and quiet...

This Stay at Home Arrangement

Well, the day started off, with making breakfast, lunches and getting the kids out the door for school. Then I came back and took the dogs to the groomer to get cleaned. They were so dirty from all the rains. Then I went to Smart N Final. Did you wonder why it is so FINAL? Then off to Kohls to return some clothes and then buy more, this time I tried them on, SMART! Cleaned out the car, put away the groceries and now I can eat my Chick-Fil-A breakfast I got at 9:30 a.m. and now its 12:15 p.m. I want to get my nails done, but before that I have to pick up the dogs and go to Walmart, but the clock is ticking...

Las Brisas in Laguna Beach

Wow, was I surprised when my BFF Amber said she was taking me to a special place for lunch, she wasn't kidding. We drove down PCH to Laguna Beach and stopped at Las Brisas. I have always heard about this place from my family, but I have never been there before. We sat on the patio overlooking the ocean while drinking, eating and laughing. We went for a walk and took pictures of ourselves and the scenery on our cell phones. Me, the Photographer, didn't bring my camera. I just thought we were going to Huntington Beach for lunch, but it was much more than that. We had such a great time. Then after leaving the Ritzy area, we went to Big Lots and I bought scrapbooking supplies since I should have some time to scrapbook my thousands of pictures. :)
I can't wait for tomorrow's adventures.

Wednesday, February 17

I decided to start another blog and update it while I am off work. I am off work because my voice has been gone for 3 months. I had a cold starting, Friday, November 13, 2009 and lost my voice thinking it was laryngitis, but it never came back to my normal voice. I continued to do my 8 hours a day phone job until I my voice disappeared, December 7, 2009. I was off the phones doing projects and my time being extended till December 24 then till January 22, then till February 3, then till February 10, which was my last day of work....Now I am home being the MOM I haven't been in 13 years. My kids love having me home to make them breakfast, lunch and dinner. Drop them off at school and pick them up. I can help them with homework and most of all they like when go to fun places because we have extra time now to get out of the house. All these things were done by their amazing dad.

My first day was great. You ask what I did, "I went to Disneyland with the twins."

My second day off was spent going grocery shopping. Then picking up my dad to go to the twins class for "Friends Day", which is a Valentines party. Mike and I went out and had a nice dinner for an early Valentine's Day.

Then came the weekend, the twins and I spent the day with a good friend and her kids and caught up on our lives..

Then Valentines Day with my hubby was wonderful. I got a new washer and dryer. They are amazing.

Then, Monday, the kids were home from school, Presidents Day. We went to lunch and shopping, fun fun. My son and I first, errands and shopping. The it was the twins turn. We went with some good friends and had a great time.

Then, Tuesday, cleaned the garage and sorted laundry to make room for our new washer and dryer. I went to my son's basketball game which I have not been able to go since I was always working. My washer and dryer were delivered and now I have done 6 loads.

Today, I am going to have lunch with my Childhood friend, who was out of my life for 20 years.
