Almost new year

December 30th, 2009 · No Comments

Okay so I know that it’s not new year yet but I just kinda felt like posting, even if there is nothing really going on. Quinn got an Wii Fit for Xmas and I have been using it more then him lol. Hate/love the damn thing though. It has this test it does where it tells you your virtual age…. well I am either 32 or 43. My mom was told that her virtual age was 63, my dad was 74, and poor Sam is 42. But other then that the thing is fun like crazy fun…. you can go jogging, skiing, and all this other stuff that you could NEVER get me to do in real life. The kicker is the flying chicken thing, LOVE that one. So I have dedicated myself to loosing weight finally. Nope it’s so not a new years resolution, because I never keep those. Just going back to listening to my body, which means I am done eating breakfast cause it makes me nauseous and will eat only when I am hungry from now on. Strange thing is that as soon as I eat (hungry or not) then I am hungry all day. So I try to be good and force myself to eat breakfast even though my body is really saying ‘no thank you’ and then end up eating all day long. Well no more! From now on my body gets to tell me when what and where. So anyhow, that was all. Will post more on the new year when it’s actually the new year. Most likely we will eat very well, drink way too much, struggle to stay awake, and the first one to fall asleep  will be Thomas – the last one Quinn. LOL lets see if I am right 😉 …. toodles!

And so this it Xmas …

December 25th, 2009 · No Comments

So Xmas has come and passed for us here in SoCal. Well, that is not entirely true cause we kinda got 2 of them, on the 24th and on the 25th. Everyone celebrates one except Quinn and Sam. Quinn is going to see his dad today for his 2nd Xmas and Sam is going to see his uncle. Mom had a dizzy episode two days before Xmas which scared me a little. Told her to go to the doctor asap, just in case. She was diagnosed with an ear infection and was put on medication. She is okay though, just a little antibiotic and it will go away. But enough about that. So our Xmas was …. awesome. We all got tons of stuff, most of all Quinn though. Thank you Sweden for measurements, toys, etc 🙂 Quinn got a Wii Fit which was in use until midnight … mind you Quinn went to bed at 11 so that last hour was just us adults lol. He got movies, games, Nerf guns, Bachugan’s, more toys, clothes, etc.  Here is a run down of the day. First came the gingersnaps with names and the lussekatt. Then came the waiting and waiting, after some glogg it was FINALLY time for Kalle Ankas Jul at 2pm. The 2009 version was already online, so we are up to date. Meanwhile there are some fixing in the kitchen. Then finally when it’s all over we eat. *SIGH* and there was a lot of eating, and a lot of food…. yum yum yum. Then after crashing for at least an hour trying to digest some of that food Santa finally came… this year he was very very young but oh well who is complaining right?! After the opening of gifts it all just became a blurr. I assume it’s from some sort of Xmas food and candy overdose delerium. No worries though, we are all okay. So a Merry Xmas it was. Merry Xmas to you all.

Decorating the tree

December 14th, 2009 · No Comments

So I spent the weekend at mom and dad with Quinn and Sam. Finished all the Xmas shopping by the way *YAY*!! Mom had decorated most of the house and the lights were all up outside. LED lights are awesome but they are so bright compared to regular lights… so instead of that golden glow, there is this bright white shine. It looks very nice though. Sam got to fix my moms lawn angel, one of those things that she puts out on the lawn every year. It moves its wings back and forth and my mom loves the darn thing lol, however half of the angel didn’t light up… so mom asked Sam to fix it, and of course Sam came to the rescue. So this year (unlike last year) she has a flapping angel in the front yard that actually lights up, and she is so happy.  This weekend Quinn and morfar went and picked out a tree, and they did an awesome job. The tree was beautiful! After some issues with the lights (poor Sam to the rescue again) the tree was lit and decorated by Quinn and mormor… I put the glitter up, in case you were wondering what I was doing lol. And then all the presents were put out under the tree to the delight of Quinn. We will miss Santa Thomas this year but Quinn is really looking forward to handing out the presents to every one.  Shame on me, I didn’t get pictures of the outside but I did get some other pictures to share with you all. OH and Erica if you are reading this THANK YOU!!! Got lantern, candy, Xmas decoration stuff and I LOVED IT (Sam and Quinn too)—– HUGZ TO YOU! YOU ROCK!

So here we are, another day closer to Xmas and still no clue of what to get people. Not to take into consideration that I still don’t have a job so I don’t have any money to buy stuff with.  *sigh* Oh well, I guess it will be a true Xmas this year lol. Mom asked me what I wanted and when I told her flooring she wasn’t to pleased with me…. but truly, I do want flooring… or a gift card I can buy flooring with. That would make me happy 🙂 It has been a rough year though, A LOT of stress and A LOT of stuff going on. Been struggling with bouts of depression due to everything, which has trickled out onto other areas in my life, weight gain, loss of work, financial problems… and then there are those other things that stress me out too. Like Peter and his health… I feel so helpless and so far away, I wish there was something I could do to help. Hoping that me sending thoughts to help you keep well and get better helps . Then Erica and Alexandra… it tears my heart out… if I could take your pains and make peace I would, I love you both so much, and life is too short.  Anyhow, now that I am all teary eyed and all … lets move away from that subject before I start bawling. Note to family near and far… I LOVE YOU ALL, please take care of one another.

So this Friday Quinn got an award for  CITIZENSHIP at his school. Very cool! Mom, dad, and Thomas came all the way up here to see him (suprise), and Sam went too. After that we went to our place and had pizza. Here are some pics of the event
