Can You Dig It

I am loving this work 4 days 3 days off! We have been keeping busy but it has really rejuvenated me spending time with the people I have had the pleasure to hang out with. We started our weekend early with the trip to D-land with the Heatons. Then as soon as work was out Friday Paul and I loaded up the car and headed to Idyllwild till late Saturday. Sunday I headed down to SD, enjoyed time with Erin, TK, mom, KJ, D! Photos and details to come... off to enjoy the rest of my day!

Intergalatic Battle

Main Street USA

The Heaton's are in town!

They were spending the day at Disneyland so once we were off work we headed out to meet up with them. We had a good time walking around, catching up and even got on a couple rides. Because it is graduation season DCA is closing at 6pm, and Disneyland at 9pm. It was a bummer there was no fireworks show.

The most exciting thing was that just before we found Kenny and Carie they had been on Thunder Mountain Railroad and a girl in front of them decided it was a good idea to stand up! This triggered the ride to stop, everyone had to wait about 10 minutes and then a cast member came and walked them off the ride. While they were waiting this girl decided to try and stand up AGAIN! Not a smart cookie. She got a talkin to when they were walking everyone out. While Paul and I were walking up to meet up with K&C, the girl escorted by two security guards walked by and Paul overheard them talking to her about calling her father to come get her.

A little while later Carie's cousin met up with us. We talked about it and decided to go on Thunder Mountain Railroad so that K&C could "finish" their ride. We waited through the line and the ride operators tried to put K&C and Kristen all in one seat, which didn't work out so Kristen waited for the next train. When our train pulled back into the depot it stopped short a couple feet from where it should. The ride broke AGAIN! We were at a point where we could get off at the exit BUT Carie's cousin was now stuck on the ride! What are the odds? Kenny was sad that he wasn't on that train because he thought it would be cool to say he got stuck in the middle of Thunder Mountain twice.

The five of us stayed till the park closed, Kenny and Carie picked up a couple things for the kids, we talked a bit longer and then parted ways. It is always good to spend time with them. I am glad we will be able to see them again before they head back to Seattle next week.

Progress is Slow

After pulling out one of my favorite skirts to wear to Open House tonight (pick your jaw up off the floor)... I realized that if I ever wanted to wear it again I would need to have it taken in. I think it is time I realize I am not a size 24/26 anymore. When I got home I decided to look back at some photos.

I have pegged my highest weight around 2003. Top to Bottom: Idyllwild Oct. 2002, Disneyland Aug. 2005, Idyllwild Oct. 2003
Then I browsed some recent photos. Top left: Baker Feb. 2009 Top right: Alaska Aug. 2008 Bottom: Rose Garden April 2009

Are you ready for some baseball!

VGCC sponsored a Padres game complete with BBQ before hand at a price we couldn't refuse. Paul and I met up with Jason and David at church, had a nice time talking and enjoying the food. Around 530 people started packing up and heading over to the game. Paul has always wanted to try the SD Trolley so we drove down to JACK MURPHY parked for free and hopped on the trolley. It was about a 20 minute trip. I loved not having to deal with any downtown traffic or one-way streets! We sat with the Laughtenbach and had a nice time cheering on the Padres and talking about what has been going on in our lives. Paul had to drive home after the game so even though it was tied in the 10th we left, something that we generally frown upon.

After taking the trolley back to the car we swung by Amy's new place to check it out. Then Paul dropped me back off at moms, grabbed his stuff and headed for home and a very meepy kitty.

Soon as I got home I of course looked up the score to see who won. Padres won 6-5 over the Reds with a walk off home run in the 16th inning.

Rattle Crash Beep Beep

On the 1st of May mom got into a car accident. Mom was banged up, a few minor cuts, bruising and lots of soreness. She got to ride in an ambulance for a second time as her blood pressure was really high. The doctors kept her for a few hours for observation and she was released.

The Focus got smooshed up and was going to cost more to fix than it was worth.

So this past weekend we went car shopping. Looked at many dealerships and Mom decided on a Honda Fit. Because the Fit is Go!


I love that I can blog from my email!
