Thelma and Lousie? Hardly.

Image
While Lorraine was here, Emmy was checking up on me to make sure we were behaving.  Well I guess we were.  So I am going to make some confessions here, and link up with Mamarazzi.  Nothing juicy here.  We didn't go all Thelma and Louise.  If we did, I wouldn't be here typing this blog.  You know, cause I would have driven off the cliff.  I guess that makes me Thelma cause I'm the tall one.  She's Louise.  I confess...I just derailed myself.  haha.

I confess....

If we had passports it would have been so much fun and all too easy to go to Tijuana that day.  It's super easy to get in.  It's coming back that's hard.  I guess we don't don't look white enough.

I confess....

I read blogs during the college orientation.  At least I did until my phone died.  What?  It wasn't for my kid?  We also passed notes.  I am surprised we didn't start playing hangman.  Or tic tac toe.  They separated the parents from the kids first thing.  Her daughter texted h…

Proud Mommy Moments: Dropping Videos

During her stay, Lorraine got to hear all kinds of wild tales from Ryan and she also got to hear about things he does good or not so good.  Of course, being five, he doesn't realize that he can incriminate himself.  He also doesn't realize that I am sitting right there.  See, I am a lot a bit of a push over and I let the kids play with my iPhone.  Ryan likes to make little videos.  They usually consist of cars crashing or super heroes saving the days.  Sometimes they are actual little vlogs.  I thought I saved one.  I didn't.  Anyvideo...he is always telling me not to watch his videos.  I am thinking because he likes to jump on the furniture.  I began explaining this to Lorraine.  She laughed at this.  I went on to explain that Aunt Cathy has bought him a "Bumblebee" Transformer which he can earn for not jumping on the furniture for four days in a row.  Ryan then chimes in...

"I just don't want you to see my dropping videos."

"What's a dro…

Wordless Wednesday

Here are some pictures of our adventures....


We went to a nice park and just fell in love with these ducks with the pom-poms on their heads.  Even their babies had pom-poms.
While we were there, I changed my text tone for Emmy so I was playing with my phone.  Some guy was giving me the stink eye for that.  We're not in the movies yo!  Plus the ducks didn't really care.  Oh and there were some late teens that must have been up to no good cause every time I got within spitting distance they scattered.  Either that, or I look like a NARC.


Kristin was using her phone and took a picture of Ryan from the front.  She posed him.  I thought it looked neat from behind.
Of course we went to the beach....
the waves were really gnarly!  Seriously coming in at two directions and all at once.  Ryan continues to call this beach, "Big Wave Beach." Emily is usually fearless...she wasn't too happy. Even Kristin kept a close distance My mom had a stowaway on her chair...a water beetle. Get…

Random Fun

Usually on the second Tuesday of the month, I host The Status Quote with my BF Emmy, but she is visiting family and I am in between visits so we decided to post pone until next month.

I took her to Zumba Gold.  She had a blast.  It felt weird to go on a Tuesday.   I didn't recognize anybody.  (We usually go on Friday's)  Lorraine loved the coin scarves.  They are fun.  And gees, I know she is shorter than me, and I am tall but look at how high my waist is.  It's really exaggerated in this picture. 

Wednesday was a big day for us.  We had to drive out to the OC for college orientation.  It was EIGHT HOURS people!  EIGHT!  And that was PHASE ONE.  And what did we get for attending this EIGHT HOURS of Orientation...?
Yep.  A pen.  Eight hours of orientation, and we got a pen.  Oh and my car battery died.  We got separated and I ended waiting in the car.  Watched Bewitched without the engine running.  D'oh!  We got rescued by the security team.  All was right with the world …

I'm Back: Did You Miss Me???

This is me and my best friend Lorraine.  And this is probably one of the last times we got together before her family moved to OH. 
This is Lorraine and I in 2007.  It was the first time we had seen each other in over 20 years.  It was like a time warp.

Over the last week we got to be together again.  Her daughter will be starting college next month.  Again, how is this possible???  Neither one of us is old enough for this!!!  They flew into San Diego on the fourth of July.  Believe it or not it was cheaper to do so.    The night before, I barely slept.  I was so excited to see my friend.  I wasn't even even nervous about driving to the airport by myself.  Directions printed out.  GPS plugged in ready to go.  I was ready to go!  And because I am a bit strange, I popped a Bewitched DVD into my DVD player and listened to the shows as I tooled down highways.  It kept me company.  I did great.  I found the airport and got there about 2 minutes after they had landed.  Perfect!!!
