last night we watched The Gods must be crazy I. Miguel was laughing so very much, loved the whole sillyness factor. I mean it was that belly laugh kids can do that just makes you want to tickle them so they'll keep doing it. It was adorable and also addictive. So tonight we will do #2 and see how it goes. That one is very funny also :)

I'm tired, goodnight

hugs, maria
I don't think I have ever been so excited to have a long weekend as I am today. The younglings get out of school at 1:30 and then all 3 have the day off tomorrow. I have already warned my alarms AKA Patrick to not wake me up tomorrow as I intend to sleep in. I am so frigging tired, I think I will live on red bull and emotional strenght because I am really, really tired.

It's been such a busy week, with parent teacher conferences, hospitality, tennis, kickboxing, yoga, dates with 85 year old men, lunch with Pat, date with Desiree... it's been fun, don't get me wrong, I thrive on social interaction but I'm not sleeping at night and that makes me bitchy....

anyhow I need to give kids breakfast... ttfn

Oh being sick just sucks! Of course I had to get sick on the week that everything else falls on, birthdays, tennis, photoshop classes, health screenings... you name it, it was happening this week and so no surprise I get sick...

Next week will be only slightly less busy but i guess since I already got my sickness at least i get that out of the way.

I'm reminding myself right now to charge the camera so I can take pictures of Larisa's party tomorrow. Her friends Morgan and Savannah are coming over to play and stay for the night.

Tonight after the cake is done I'm gonna shoot myself up with Nyquil and take a good sleep.

Tomorrow will be a good day right?

oh boy

do i hate being sick! bleh... I have much to do and little time to complete it. I spent the whole day in bed yesterday, literally the WHOLE day. My throat hurts and I'm freaking exhausted. Today I have a pre-birthday party activity at school for Larisa, then tennis clinic. Then Larisa and I have to make her birthday party cake for tomorrow.

Her celebration is tomorrow and I have a nasty house to clean. I am excited as she turns 10 and I'm excited about making the cake with her, he is a little princess baker and loves to do it.

Tomorrow, I am also excited because I have a Photohop class that I signed up for about 2 months ago. Miguel has a birthday party, then we have company to eat ribs and celebrate Larisa's party. Then her friends stay for a sleepover.

Sunday will be a LITERAL day of rest....

so today I was so good! I was so buy and yet managed to do 1 hour of kickboxing and 45 minutes of yoga. I know I'm gloating but I had never done either one of those classes and I feel very accomplished!

went wedding dress shopping with my soon to be sister in law and my mother in law. It was a fun and unifying experience (i think anyways)

We're going to watch The Proposal tonight which is such a funny movie, I loved it, laughed my butt off.

Not feeling very chatty but wanted to update my blog. TTFN

a new week upon me with lots to do, I actually slept well last night and yet I wish I could have slept better. I'm cold. I turned on the fireplace to warm up the kitchen and I'm going to make hot coccoa and something warm for the kiddos.

I wish I could write something poetic or life changing but it's happening this morning, haha!

Weird thing is that i woke up with a ong by the Killers stuck in my head.

"This Is Your Life"

Candy talks to strangers
Thinks her life's in danger
No one gives a damn about her hair
It's lonely down on Track Street
She used to go by Jackie
The cops, they'll steal your dreams and they'll kill your prayers
Take a number where the blood just barely dried

Wait for something better
No one behind you
Watching your shadows
This feeling won't go

Crooked wheels keep turning
Children, are you learning
Acclimatize but don't you lose the plot
A history of blisters
Your brothers and your sisters
Somewhere in the pages we forgot

Take a number Jackie
Where the blood just barely dried
You know I'm on your side

Wait for something better
No one behind you
Watching your shadows
You gotta be stronger than the story
Don't let it blind you
Rivers of shadow
This feeling wont go

And the sky is full of dreams
But you don't know how to fly
I don't have a simple answer
But I know that I could answer
Something better

This feeling won't go

Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it
Wait for it

So I got a good night sleep, but man I couldn've slept another 3 hours or so.

Got tennis lessons today and need to finish up laundry OR ELSE! Woke up the kids early and everyone is ready, that is a relief, we had been straddling the late line wayyyyy to much lately and I hate that, I don't like being late, it's actually a big pet peeve of mine.

I'm Hospitality Chair this year at the school and my first official activity will be happening in 2 weeks, things are somewhat moving along but there is still a need for more food to be donated. Still I think we made good on the first day of it.

I've gained weight and feel fat and soft again, shit, shit, shit...

I might have to nap when I get home, I'm really sleepy still but so much to do and tonight is my evening out.

hugs, maria

I got this awesome little black biker chick leatherette jacket today and I'm just so pumped about it, it's way too cute! That of course only intensifies the size of my big butt but I guess I will have to live it, since it's my butt anyhow.

Today was a good day, and I did 30 minutes of cardio in the eliptical machine which makes me sweat (heh, I first wrote swear, maybe a freudian slip, ya think? ) I'm making fish tacos and we're going to watch Imagine that with the kids.

Larisa's birthday is in less than 2 weeks and he is about to give me a hernia with all her questions, details, requests and ideas.... She is such a little planner!

Emotionally I'm still a wreck for personal reasons, sigh...

I'm running Neon Tiger on my mind, but i've been listening to Jumper a lot also and Absolute, and today Miguel declared his second favorite song is "Free Falling" it made me so sad, he really misses his bro. I downloaded a new album called "Signs and Wonders" by Animal Kingdom, I listened to most of them, well the samples and I liked what I heard so we'll see how the whole album rates.

Miguel is getting fired up so I better start working on dinner and relaxation...

hugs, maria

p.s. and just for a change, here's some pictures

a new week starts, with a very busy day, but I'm ready for it. I have my fall hair going, I look different, I am getting used to it, it's much darker but I LIKE it. I feel kinda goth or something because it's really an intense dark brown.

We did a Halloween scavenger hunt and I had a really fun time, especially dressing up with a *very* blond wig.

I'm going to scoot and prepare stuff for today but, here's a couple of points:

- Janet, enjoy your first day at your new job
- Des I'm thinking of ya
- Jonna, I can't wait to shop today!
- *^$^&*$@ :P

Arghhh.. this is stuck on my head

I go crazy, crazy, baby, I go crazy
You turn it on
Then you're gone
Yeah you drive me
Crazy, crazy, crazy, for you baby
What can I do, honey
I feel like the color blue...

and i'm not an aerosmith fan. Man's freaky but this song hits me so visceral....

so much

I've had so much on my mind i've been ignoring the blog. I've been not only emotionally busy but busy every where else too. Lot's of activities going on, my house has suffered, my health and my emotional state also. It's time to get a move on and get over myself and my self pity. Get my emotional ass of the ground and move forward. In the span of 4 weeks I've lost and gained 7 lbs, I've lost my health and beauty routine and neglected a lot of things.

Some other things are moving forward, slowly but surely, others not so much. I miss friends and then have also made new ones.

Hugs, maria
