Dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had.

Pics from vacation.  Let me just tell you, to get this sweatshirt I'm wearing now was a huge fiasco.  I wanted a particular sweatshirt (a black sweatshirt with the california flag on it that says Santa Cruz.  So, we found one but it was 40 bucks so Jason said we could probably find it cheaper on the wharf.  So we went all the way down the boardwalk and to the end of the wharf and not one other store had it.  Then, JJ wanted to step in the ocean so I ran up and down the boardwalk while her and the babies checked out the ocean.  And when I said ran, i mean ran.  No where had it.  I made it back to the shop I originally found it in for 40 bucks but they onlyhad it in small when I checked.  Now, mind you I was ready to give up much earlier but Ryan pushed me on.  Finally I had already given up but i found one more shop next to our parking area (parking was 11 bucks at the boardwalk!) a surf shop, and they had it!  For $40.  oh well. I got it.  and a pretty okay story, too.

here's the pics

I could never be famous, not with this smile

Howdy and hello from sunny california.  So far so good. Time change is the hardest to acclimate to but we seem to be doing pretty good.  Went to Gilroy Garlic Festival.  Got stuck in crappy horrible traffic on the way. My advice is to not follow any routes suggested by the California Dept of Transportation.  Festival was super crowded.   Had a clown tell me that I had a beautiful and delicate tattoo.  He was nice and not really creepy even with this comment.  Ate excellent garlic fries and bread and garlic corn on the cob.  We also discovered that Athena really likes garlic fries.  Yet another weapon in Jason and Ann's war for feeding Athena.  Asher of course likes everything. 

I'll post some pictures soon, I promise. 

Anyway...going to Santa Carla...um, I meant Santa Cruz.  Lost Boys in the house!  And we will check out a bunch of awesome Redwoods again.  More pictures I'll post later.  I'm super excited, you know my love of lost boys.  I'm a sap.  In fact, I'll suggest you listen to Cry little sister by Ventana when you read my next post.

Babies are attacking, I'll talk to you later.

There has never been a better time to die

So, yeah, last minute packing.  Fun.  Can't find camera, I'm all nervous about traveling and feeling out of sorts.  I'm sure it will all come together but i'm still stressed.  Oh well. 

Ry has an interview on Monday, actually it's on tuesday but he will fly out monday for teh interview.  So hopefully he gets it and can have a better schedule and see us more often.  We will see. I have my fingers crossed. 

Prob won't write too much while I'm gone.  See you in a week or so.

Murder Boy, Birthday Boy, I think he said...

So, forgive me if I don't write for a few days, I'll be in sunny CaliFornia! 

Last day at work for a while, forgive me if i can't take it seriously. 

Had fun last night with my bro and martin and rachel.  Good times. 

Totally want to have an alice in wonderland themed party.  Need to work on "eat me" cakes and some type of "drink me" beverages.  and a costume.  poo, i'm bad at costumes.

I don't care what you think as long as it's about me

Feeling weird lately.  I don't know why exactly but I just feel out of sorts with my emotions.  I don't know what I want.  I feel like I'm missing out on something really cool.  I think this is part of my end of 2o's crisis or something.  don't mind me, though, I'm just whining. 

I'm super duper loving Ventana right now.  I will def go see them again when they have another show. 

Started packing for California last night.  It was super cute.  I had a laundry basket and the suitcase on the bed with Asher and he would take what i put in the suitcase out and put it in the laundry basket and then put it back in the suitcase himself.  Over and over.  very cute.  He needs a hair cut and I am afraid.  It's a very difficult procedure to perform.

What am I here for, I left my home to disappear is all

So, the countdown is upon us. I'm really excited.  I wish teh cats would start to use the really expensive flushing cat box we got to try to help with the litter box issues we are having...having a diabetic cat sucks. 

I'm feeling weird about relationships I have with people.  I wonder if it's just that I'm out of sorts the last few days.  I don't know.  I need to meet some new people maybe. 

I'm having a lot of 20 something regrets, too.  Like, i wish i had done that in my 20s.  Mourning the loss of my 20s.  I don't know why I feel like this, I have a pretty good life, it's just not what I had expected for myself.

Stay the Fuck Away From Me

So, had a great weekend.  Was super fun.  Family Reunion was a nice send off.  It was soooo hot, though.  Ry got sick yesterday and took teh baby home while I stayed and got my ass kicked at bocce.  Oh well.

Looks like it's gonna rain all day and that's okay with me. 

The count down to Cali is well on it's way.  Gotta pick up a few more items and then start packing.  Should be good times.

I wish I knew right from the start

So, i had a pretty great weekend after i got over the fact that Walmart hates ryan.   and me by proxy.  Anyway...

Friday went with The Vic to see Birthday massacre and Ventana.  ROCK!  What an awesome show.  It was soooo hot, though.  I almost passed out and i never pass out.  I almost threw up, too, it was so hot, but I didn't and I'm better for it.  And the show was worth it, I can't wait for their new album, it's going to be excellent, I can tell.

Then on Saturday went to Hudson Wine fest with JJ, her mom, martin and Asher.  He was so hot, his little face was red.  We had to go inside to eat so we could get him out of the heat.  But I think he had a fun time and it was nice to get out with some peoples.   Thanks JJ for being our designated driver!

And I'm working now but today is my fam reunion so I am super excited about that, too!

I'm going in for the kill

Just travelled to central ohio to listen to a bunch of men pretend they were the most important people on earth and reiterate the same point a hundred different ways.  Gotta love government meetings.

I'm so tired of being in a car, too.  don't you hate it when you are stuck to the back seat and the people in the front are rocking the air conditioning at full blast?  I have decided that there is no way to be comfortable in the back seat of a car.

So busy....

I have been super busy at work lately.  sorry I'm a slacker. 

Taking Steve to Bspot for his birthday/fathers day thing tonite.  Should be fun.  JJ and my brother and martin are coming as well.  Jeh was gonna come but then discovered that everything is cooked in lard and that ruled that out.  Oh well.  Lard must be delicous. 

Going blueberry picking on thursday.  that will be fun, too.  It's supposed to be 93 degrees out though, seems like every time i go blueberry picking it's a freaking heat wave.  Hopefully the bugs don't destroy us.

Shoot to thrill

I can't remember the next part of the line so you just get shoot to thrill, it's ACDC if you didn't know.

I have a feeling shit is really gonna hit the fan here at work this week...

Baby gym was fun but Asher was totally not about participating.  He just wanted to run around and climb things so while other mommies and babies were participating in class and having fun he was climbing blocks and I was left to participate all by myself, which isn't nearly as much fun as it sounds. You end up feeling kind of dumb when your kid waves to you each time you pass in the circle but won't come and play in the circle with you.  Oh well, he seemed to have fun and that's all that matters.  Boy, it's expensive, though. 

Hmm...good times.  Have the tea party for the fifty book challenge with the library today.  I'm nervous about going.

No time to write!

Sorry, guys.  i have been busy training new employees at the city and have had no free time at home to write, either.  I know, I'm a bad girl.  But I'm making up for it now, right?

I am really enjoying the training, hopefully I'm not too boring or anything.  I don't think I am but you know how I go on about science...I do love it. 

Gonna spend this morning trying to find a baby gym for asher.  I hope it doesn't end up costing too much...

Well, talk to you tomorrow!  Ry has an interview for Stow today, the first of hopefully three.  Wish him luck!

I ain't saying she a gold digger, but she aint messing with no broke

So, I am training new people at work, 3 of them. I'm talking and driving and then I'm sitting in a gravel driveway on a slope trying to get a dummy tire on a ford escape.  Or rather, the two guys I was training took over like ants on a picnic and me and the other girl just stood in 90 some degree heat and watched.  I have this theory that men are attracted to a broken down car like magnets. They don't ever want any help, either.

combinate it with the flavor and it goes like this

So, I am addicted to podcasts.  JJ turned me on to howstuffworks.com, I must have downloaded 100 different podcasts from there already and I've not even made it through even half of the archives.  I love it.  Such great stuff.  I really like the one called "stuff your mom never told you". 

I am super busy at work this week.  It feels good.  Rewarding.  Hopefully it will all pay off, you know?

Ry and I are getting my mom to watch the baby tonight so we can go out to dinner.  Not sure where we are going yet. I'll probably let you know if it's somewhere fun.

Number 100 in the hizzy!

This is my 100th post.  I'm pretty proud of myself.  So proud, I almost forgot to write today.  I just got really wrapped up in what I was doing at work (I'm digging my job lately) and I worked all day long!  

It's sooo hot outside.  It sucks to work outside when it's this hot. 

The airline has unassigned my seat on the return flight from california to cleveland so now I don't acutally have a seat on a sold out plane.  I'm pretty miffed about it, at least ryan and asher have seats.  They told me i need to arrive two hours early to the airport to make sure I can get a seat on the same flight (I do have a seat on that flight, they assured me) and maybe next to my 1 year old baby.  I hope the guy who they sit next to Asher when I don't get the seat appreciates taking care of babies who will probably be pretty unhappy about sitting still for five hours.

We know how to get down in this city

Mmmm....I'm tired. First day of first shift.  Asher did not appreciate being woken up and dragged in the car first thing this morning, either. 

Happy Birthday America.  Hope that goes well for you.

Didn't get to see fireworks again this year, Asher kept falling asleep before it was time to go see them.  Oh well, guess it's tough to be a 1 year old. 

Yea!  Today is sweet potato fries for lunch day.  Holla.

Asher and Lydia had fun playing together last night.  Here's some pics.

Let this be our little secret no one needs to know we're feeling higher

So...how stupid.  I am not sure of the details but the day that Heather came off of bedrest (she's 37 weeks today) she runs to the hospital and insists her water is broken.  Gah.  

What else can I say after that?

We're falling apart at half time, dance, dance, cause these are the lives we chose to lead

Uneventful day, really.  I was busy at work, thus the late post.  Nothing too eventful.  Did I mention yesterday that Ryan got a speeding ticket after his horrible day?  Just icing on the cake, right.  Poor Ry.  I wish I knew how to help him.  I just don't.  Someone needs to buy the condo, that would help. 

Looking forward to everyone coming over and hanging out for the 4th tomorrow.  Still have to go shopping, I havne't bought any food for it yet.  Plus I have to clean the yard still.  Oh well, should still be fun. 

Can't belive how fast teh summer is going.  It's just flying by.
