Its wet outside!

Its raining and cold today! Its my favortie kind of weather!

what to do?

So I twisted my ankle sunday night while putting laundry away and yes it is the same foot that I messed up in july. I have kept it wrapped and have been using a brace that my grandma had and it still hurts. I am trying to decide if I should go to the doctor and pay money that we don't have right now or hold out until my insurance kicks sometime in late january. I am trying to keep it warm because it seems like when it gets to cold it hurts even more. Right now I have a space heater pointed at it so that it does not get cold but it is already acheing. At least I have a 3 day weekend to stay off of it!

Christmas Eve

Its Christmas Eve and I get to work this morning. There is not much for me to do this morning but I still have tons to do when I get home. I really want to download my camera but I have to wait until I get a new computer. Oh well, I guess I should get to work now!
Merry Christmas!

i know what santa's bringing me...

So santa (aka my dad) called me to see if I would like a new kitchen sink and faucet for christmas today. I was thinking are you kidding me, of course I want those. For those of you who don't know about my kitchen I currently have a yellow, yes 70's yellow, sink and our faucet is cracked and is about ready to fall off. - myself have just been to cheap to but a new faucet. So I am getting a new stainless steel sink and faucet from santa! I know that's a silly present to be excited about but we really need it and I don't have to purchase it myself!

I did try to go to the mall today to try and finish my christmas shopping but there was no where to park! I am going to have to attempt it again tomorrow or maybe monday night.I only have one gift left to get and of course I can only get it at the mall. I also need to find time this week to wrap presents and to bake. I had wanted to get our picture taken with the dog for christmas presents but I lost track of time and did not get that done. I am still trying to get used to working again so I feel like I never have any free time. So I am making cookies for christmas gifts again this year.

Jeremy and I finally saw the new moon movie (the 2nd movie in the twilight series) it was ok. The 2nd book is my least favorite so the movie kind of bored me.

Well its past my bedtime! I got to get up early tomorrow and get lots of stuff done.

Happy Birthday Brett & Evan!

Happy 4th Birthday boys! Sorry about the halloween picture but its the only one I had on my phone. Aren't they the cutest super heros!

Travis on pirates of the carribbean!

It was so dead at disneyland because of the rain that we got out own boat on pirates! This was our 3rd time on it that day at travis's requst we got off and got right back on. This is him lounging on the boat.

Travis in Disneyland jail!

Here is Travis on his birthday soaking yet and in jail at Disneyland.

Happy 8th Birthday Travis!

Ok so I am a few days late. Travis turned 8 on saturday! I took him to Disneyland in the rain, yep in the rain. We had lots of fun and got really wet. I will post some pictures soon. I didn't take very many because of the rain!

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

Yep it has to happen...

I must purchase a new laptop. Our desk computer is old and runs terrible and really just needs to be dismantled and thrown away and I can no longer download my camera to our laptop. I need to purchase a laptop for myself to use just for downloading my camera and doing the other projects that I had once been doing on the computer. So it looks like after Christmas I will putting away what we can for a new laptop for me.

We did get our tree last night fom Green Thumb. We will go pick it up tonight since we went ahead and had it flocked. We even put up our Christmas lights last night. Now i need to find out stockings and then i will be done decorating for this year.

december 7th

Yesterday was our 7 year anniversary. We both worked all day and I came home feeling yucky so we decided to stay home. Jeremy went and picked up dinner from dominicks, which was yummy. I watched a christmas story, took some nyquil and was out before 9:30. We will do something another day when I feel better.

Picture of the view on the way to work

Not sure why this post is all messed up. I did it from my phone. Anyway just a picture of the snow on the hills.

Sunday, December 6, 2009


Yep I went to Disneyland again today. We had lots of fun and got theresa to go on indiana jones so she has now offically been on all the big rides at Disneyland, now we need to work on the rides at California Adenture! I will probably go again next Saturday for travis's birthday and then not again until next year. I need to download my camera but the computer isn't working right. I do believe its time for a new one. I guess we are going to save some money and buy a new laptop for me so I can put all my digital pictures on it. Anyone want to donate to my new computer? Ok time for me to go to bed since tomorrow is monday!

To flock or not to flock...

That is the question of the day. I want to go get our Christmas tree and Jeremy wants to get a flocked one this year. We did that 2 years ago and the nice thing was all the needles didn't fall off. One year we even flocked it ourselves with a can of spray snow
(We called it our flocked up tree!). I wonder where the pictures are from that tree. I remember the one time when I was akid that we got a flocked tree. I think is was 9hristmas of 1981. I got a new brother that year (yep I got a brother) and for some reason I wanted a "white" christmas tree. I am not sure which parent agreed to it but I remember picking out the tree and asking for it to be white and then waiting a day or 2 before the tree could come home. I don't think we ever had another white tree after that.
Now I need to figure out if I want heavy flocking or light flocking. That is my delima for today!

thanksgiving is what?

I am currently in the car going to tagret. We have already been to toys r us which opened at midnight but they still had the thing that I wanted even though we got there at 4:30. Now its off to target and then kmart and kohls. And then back home to visit with meghan for the one day I get to see her while she is here. I do have leftover turkey in the fridge when I am ready to go home and eat it.

Sunday, November 22, 2009


I can't figure out how to post pictures from my phone to my blog! Anyway the hockey game was fun even though the kingd lost! We did have a group of annoying people behind us who talked the entire game. They really didn't say anything interesting. They talked about going to disneyland and how they all haves passes but some go more than others. One girl lept talking about people she goes to school with or went to school with at one time. Then every time a song was played the dumb girl would sing with it but she did not seem to know any of the words and got them all wrong. Emily and I spent most of the game trying to understand their wacky conversations and laughing because they were just odd. One guy kept saying that he was glad that he was huskey because it was keeping him warm and that if he ever got the chance to play hockey he would just fight with everyone. Yep there are some strange people in this world.

I am up late trying to get a head start on laundry. I have one load that just finished in the washing machine which I am going to put in the dryer and put another into the washing machine. I think that once I do that I should go to bed. I am getting very tired! Tomorrow or later today since it is after midnight, I am going to see if I can figure out how to post pictures that I take with my phone. I got a cute one of emily at the game. It is closeup of her with her tongue out! Oh well washing machine is now done, time to switch laundry!

Saturday, November 21, 2009

What am i doing today?

I am currently ridding in my Dad's truck going to a hockey game! My dad, my sister, my Aunt Robin and I are going to the kings game. I am going to see if I can take pictured with my phone and post them to my blog. I love technology! I did make it through my first full week back at work after being sick for 2 weeks. Next week is a short week since it is thanksgiving. I am so ready for turkey!

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Just learned a new rthing!

I can blog from my phone! I guess it means that I can do an update when I want or even post pictured that I take with my phone. I will have to play with this and see how it works.

Monday, November 9, 2009


Yes I am still coughing and I have a fever that keeps returning but I am heading back to work tomorrow. Hopefully I can go all day without a nap. I have spent the past week in bed, this swine flu thing is bad. You can hardly breathe and you are tired and cant do anything. I need to weigh myself to see how much weight I lost. I know that I had lost 4 pounds from when I weighed myself on Halloween until I went to the doctor on Tuesday. I may need to take a gallon of caffeine with me tomorrow just to get through the day. Anyway I need to go to bed, but I just thought that I would let everyone know that yes I m still alive.

Stuck in bed

So while Halloween was fun, I will get pictures up later, after I got home from trick or treating was not fun. Jeremy had been in bed all day not feeling good. He was running a fever and could not breath very well. So off we went to the er. Surprisingly they were not very busy for a Saturday night. we got taken back almost right away but were stuck there for almost 3 hours. As it turns out he has the flu and wouldn't you know it i woke up Sunday with it. I went to work Monday for about 20 minutes and had to come home I was running a fever and felt horrible. I went to urgent care today, since I do not hve insurance yet, and was told that I also have the flu, however since almost every person they have tested for the swine flu has come up positive they are no longer testng for that and just assuming that if you have the flu then you have the dreaded swine flu. Yep I get to say it...we have the swine flu....and wow it is bad. Jerey had to get 2 breathing treatments in the er and one today at his doctor's appointment and I had to get one while I was at the doctor. We are both on tamiflu, which is cheap for him with his insurance but is $93 for me. We both got an inhaler, which again is cheap for him but almost $50 for me and I got some lovely cough syrup with codiene in it to help with the coughing. Jeremy gets to go back to work on Monday and I am not allowed to go back until Tuesday. Of course since I just started my job I do not have any sick time, this of course could not happen once I had insurance and sick time, so I get to miss 6 days of work which means 6 days of pay, which means we get to struggle once again this month to make ends meet. I am not sure why once we start to feel like we are getting ahead stuff like this has to happen. Oh well I am off to bed since my medicine has kicked in and I need to get as much sleep as possible.

The Weekend is over already?

Not sure how it happened but the weekend is over and I did not finish reading a book. I picked up one of the Dexter books Friday night and I have read maybe 40 pages so far. My hair appointment on Saturday took a while so I did not read much that day and today I felt like watching stupid movies. So Emily and I watched The Blob (the 80's version is terrible), Scream and Sleep Away Camp 2. They were all pretty stupid. So now my plan is to catch up reading some blogs, then I am going to read a few pages of my book and then I am going to bed. I need to get to sleep early so I am not so tired in the morning. Hopefully this week I will get around to downloading my camera so I can post some pictures from my 3 day Disneyland trip and maybe even some from the Highland Games.

First week is over...

I made it through my first week of work! So far we have been pretty slow which is good because it is giving me time to get used to being at work all day. This first week did fly by pretty quickly but I am tired every night when I get home. I am trying to get myself to beed early but I am so used to staying up late that it has been kind of a struggle. My favorite part about my job is the cappacino machine that we have. We get to have lots of coffee!! I also like the fact that I have my own cubicle and don't have to sit at the front desk. That desk is being saved for when we hire a receptionist, I am very excited that I will no longer have that title. Right now I am customer support and temporary receptionist. We are waiting to hire one until we are a little busier.


My new shoes came the other day and they are to small so I will be taking them back to the store and getting a refund. I am kind of bummed but I know that I will find something else better.

We don't really have any plans for this weekend except returning my shoes and I have a hair appointment tomorrow. Tonight I am hanging out in bed watching tv and reading a book. I may play Toy Stpry Mania on the Wii in a bit and then I am going to bed.

Goodbye Freedom, Hello Paycheck

My freedom is almost over! I have one more day until i go back to work and I am already looking forward to taking a vacation. I bought some clothes today and will wash everything tomorrow and be ready to start work on Monday. I am excited to have a job again, but also nervous to be going back. I am really to recieve these cute shoes that I had to order from the shoe store in the right size.

They did not have my size in the store and they offered free shipping so I ordered them and am waiting for them to show up. Until my foot heeals all the wy I have to stick with flater shoes so I don't mess it up more than it already is. In fact I am having lots of pain in it today. I have way to much walking the past few days and plan on relaxing as much as possible tomorrow so it does not hurt on Monday.
Not much else is going on with us. We watched The Propsal with Sandra Bullock in it tonight. I love that movie. If you have not seen it then you need to rent it. Betty White is super funny in it. Now I am going to go lay down and maybe watch Snow White. I am in a disney movie mood.

Rain Day #2

It's still raining today!!! I am going to be bummed tomorrow hen it's not raining. I am so looking forward to winter and hope that it is a very rainy one for us. I get to wear jackets and pants and my fuzzy cheap version of uggs (you know those warm fuzzy boots).

I wish I could say that I m getting a lot done during my last week of freedom before I go back to work but I really havent done anything other than play on the computer. I need to get the house clean and do laundry. Maybe I will go through in a load of towels in a few minutes. I would love to go take a nap but I am trying to get myself back on a normal schedule. I need to go to sleep before 2am. My dog is super lazy. In fact she is still in bed and once again has not gotten up to eat breakfast. I do need to go to the pet store and buy more food the animals. I really just want to have a lazy rainy day. I should go make some coffee.

Tuesday, October 13, 2009


It's raining!!! I love it when it rains! I got a job and I start on Monday!! I am super excited.

I relly don't have anything else to blog about right this moment. I am just sitiing here drinking coffee and enjoying the rain. The dog is sleeping because thats all she does all day long. She has not even gotten up to hve breakfast yet. She is not going to want to go outside today because of the rain. She does not like to get wet. She gets mad when we give her a bath. Maybe it will stop raining long enough for her to go outside.

Friday, October 9, 2009

Keep your fingers crossed!!

I am going to meet with my old bosses at their new office on Monday. Hopefully they will get me started soon as I am going crazy without a job!!

I have had nothing to blog about lately. Fall TV shows have started. We are addicted to The Vampire Diaries. I know we watch to much tv but this show is pretty good all though probably meant for teenage girls but we both enjoy it. CSI has started again, rumor has it this might be the last season for the Vegas one, which happens to be my favorite. I really hope that they don't end this show, that would make Thursdays even worse after ER ended. Heros started again and i am already 3 episodes behind. Jeremy watches it every Monday but I keep forgetting to watch it. I love having TIVO, I love being able to record my shows and watching them later without commercials. I don't have to watch them while they are on tv, I can watch them the next day!! Yep we are exciting people.

Literal Videos on You Tube

Since I can't seem to sleep tonight I thought that I would play around on the computer. Gretchen has been telling me about the literal videos that she has been watching on You Tube so I thought I would check them out. The best one I have watched so far is Meatloaf's I would do anything for love. They take his video and sing the song differently, it's all sung about what is happening in the video.

Hopefully this link works. I had to laugh at this video it is hilarious!!

Thursday, October 1, 2009


Yeah it's finally October. I am going to decorate for Halloween this weekend. We are not normally home on Halloween but I still like to decorate. Plus it gives me a chance to clean up from the summer. Now if only our weather would coperate and it would cool off. Today we had heat and santa ana winds. I am ready for cooler days and crisp temperatures. Anyway I will post Disneyland pictures soon. I still have to download the camera.

Wednesday, September 30, 2009


I got my letter from unemployment today and I have been approved for the new extension. I am very happy to say that we can last a few more months. Hopefully it won't take me that long to find a job. I spent tonight filling out the claim form so I can start receiving checks again.

I had a very good time at Disneyland and will post pictures soon. I am just recovering from 3 days of walking and am still very tired. It was very hot there and now that I am home I am freezing and can not get warm.

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Yes I am going again...

Yep I will be at the Happiest Place on Earth this weekend but this time I get to spend Sunday with my 3 nephews and niece! It's happy family time at Disneyland. I am very excited because I have never been there during the Halloween Season. I just love to see their decorations. They go all out t Christmas so Halloween should be good!

What else am I doing? Looking for a job and hoping that the unemployment extenstion of 13 weeks gets passed soon. It is going to be for those of us whose beneifits expire this month. Hopefully it will pass like now but could take a few days. I am sure I will have a job by the end of the year but really need those benefits to keep going so we can pay our bills and buy some groceries.

I think this week I am going to try and get some of the house organized nd maybe pull out my Halloween decorations. I am so ready for fall to start. I am done with the hot weather I want some rain!

How do you know...

How do you know if one of the work from home jobs is legitimate? The online newspaper job section has tons of those work from home jobs but I am afraid to check into any of them because I don't want to think that it is a job I can do only to find out that it is a scam. The other job that is posted way to much is sell Avon. I wouldn't mind doing that for extra money but is anyone buying that kind of stuff right now? Avon is cheaper than Pampered Chef or Partylite. Maybe i will check into it and see if it is a good way to bring in extra money, especially if I am only able to get a part time job.

My foot is slowly getting better. It's been 2 months since I tore the ligament. All tghe research I have read says that it can take 2 months or longer to heal. If I do to much on it I do get some swelling and if it gets to cold it hurts alot. But it is a lot better than it was. Sunday I woke up with a sore throat. I took some medicine and spent pretty much all day in bed sleeping. My throat still hurts today but will hopefully be gone tomorrow. I don't have the time to be sick right now.

Thursday, September 10, 2009

Another no...

Target has turned me down for a job. Apparently they are not hiring right now. I have called Barnes and Noble and Borders and neither of them are hiring. So now what? I may have to go stand on the street corner and beg for money like everyone else is doing. I wonder what I should put on my sign. Well tomorrow is another day and there will probably be the same jobs listd that I have already applied for. Hopefully Sunday's paper will have something promising.

4th in the Nation

Did anyone else read the article I think it was on Friday that California is the 4th highest unemployement rate in the nation? Yep we are almost all the way to the top. Ventura County's unemployement rate is like 10.9% or some insane number like that. Once again the jobs that are listed say you must have expirence in one thing or another and of course I do not have the kind that they want. Even our Walmart is not hiring, not that i would work at that store, I refuse to shop there now. Last time I went I was ran over by shopping carts like 5 times by kids who were just running wild through the store with no parents watcching them. I would have loved to spank them just like the old guy who smacked some screaming kid at walmart because the mother was not dealing with it. I am sorry but it may seem wrong but that guy made me proud. I get tired when i am in a store and some kid is screaming because their parents won't buy them candy or whatever it is they want. Well thats what the parents get for giving in to kid and getting them something when the behave bad. Why would you reward a kid for bad behavior? I took Travis to the grocery store one day while I was watching him and he told me that he was not going in. I explained to him that we had to go in and get food for lunch. We went in and he was being a monster the whole time, once we got in line he decides to tell me that he wants gum and takes it off the rack. I told him no, he was not listening and I don't buy stuff for kids who do not listen. He put it bck and of course was mad at me for a little while but he got over it. Once we got out to the car I explained to him that when he acts like that I will not buy him stuff, if he had been good then maybe I would have picked up a special treat. Anyway yes I was glad the old guy at walmart tried to handle things with the kid, all though yes he may have gone about it the wrong way. I think I would have just said something to the parent, but then again some people just don't listen. Wow this post turned from job hunting to spanking to no special treats. Did anyone follow anything I said? I think maybe I need to get some sleep. Hopefully tomorrow will bring better prospects of a job.

Thursday, September 3, 2009

What to do...

Do I take a part time job and find another way to make up the extra money or do I keep looking for a full time job? So far I have not found much. I just soent almost 2 hours looking through Craigs List hoping to find something. I did apply for an office job at a construction company but they don't pay much. Should I sell Avon to make extra money? Is anyone buying Avon these days? The frustration of not having a job and not finding one is starting to really bug me. We are ok for the next 2 to 3 weeks and then after that we will be pinching and saving to pay rent.

Enough about my problems. Jeremy has been working down at the harbor the last few days while they are filming a movie. It has been hot so he comes home tired and cranky and sunburned. I sure wish our house had air conditioning. It has been very hot this week!

To Bad...

I just got a call from one of the companies I applied with on Monday. They actually took the time out to call me and thank me for my application and to let me know that they have filled the position already.

So now what? I called the temp agencies and they do not have anything for me at the moment but will keep looking. I checked the classifieds again and there is nothing new, just the same stuff from Sunday and Monday. This is going to be a long week.

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

Job Hunting...

I spent yesterday and today looking for a job. I appiled for some that I do not have the expirence for but am hoping that they will look at my resume anyway. Today the same jobs were posted from yesterday so nothing new this morning. I really hope that the economy picks up soon. Does anyone know of where I can get a decent job?

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

School has started...

Our neighborhood is quiet once again!! All the kids are bck in school and its so nice and quiet during the day. My sister Emily started her senior year in high school on Tuesday and my brother Todd starte his sophmore year. Emily was not even a year old when I graduated and Todd was not even an idea yet. Yikes that makes me really old!! Travis starts 2nd grade tomorrow and Theresa will be going to kidnergarten. I can't believe how much those 2 have grown up or how quickly it has happened. I keep thinking that maybe I should go to school but until I get a job we can't afford it. Hopefully I will find something soon as I only have a few more weeks left of unemployement. Time for bed for me. I have had a long day of playing with Travis and Theresa they spent the day with me today and I am worn out.

Friday, August 21, 2009

Sucked in...

Jeremy started watching Dexter and now I am sucked in!! I don't need anymore tv shows to watch. I am really liking this show though. Its nice and creepy. For those of you who have not watched it, it is all about a guy who works in the police lab but is also a killer. He only kills criminals. It has been pretty funny so far.

The weekend is here and we have no plans so far. I am hoping to not be stuck in the house all weekend. I have been sick all week with a flu thing and am ready to go outside. I need to go purchase some laundry soap so we can catch up on laundry. Maybe that will be our friday night out, going laundry soap shopping. Yep we are boring.

5 weeks...

After spending many hours on the phone yesterday calling the unemployment department I finally got through. They are not sure why I was sent the weird paper and in fact a check was sent out for me over the weekend. I did find out that I have 5 weeks left and then I am on my own. Which gives me 5 weeks to find a job, hopefully I won't keep getting told that I am either under or over qualified.

Sunday, August 9, 2009

Unemployment frustratons!!!

2 weeks ago I receievd a half a check from unemployement and was told to fill out the next claim form and send it the following week. We were expecting full check this week and in yesterdays mail there was a letter from the unemployment office telling me that I need to refile my claim because I am potentially eligible for a new claim that will be effective on 7/12/09. So I go to their website and try to file again only to find out that I have to call them. Of course they are not open today and they never answer the phone when I call. So tomorrow I will be spending the day on the phone trying to get through to them. Now I am trying to figure out what to do if i am not approved for a new claim. Can we survive on Jeremy's paycheck? Sure we can if we don't want to eat or pay any bills. Keep your fingers crossed that I am able to get through to someone tomorrow and find out what is going to happen.

UPDATE.... I have been calling them all morning and keep getting the same message. We hav to many calls call back later. How am I supposed to refile if I can't freaking talk to anyone on the phone????

Happy Birthday Jeremy

Yesterday was Jeremy's birthday so we went out to dinner with some friends. We went to PF Changs!! Yummy yummy yummy!!

Here's a not so happy picture of the birthday boy. He hates taking pictures.

Now he is on vacation for a few days. We have nothing planned other than sitting on the couch and being bored. I really want to get out of the house though!!

Smoking Vacuum!!

On Monday Jeremy was vacuuming our bedroom and I noticed that smell of a vacuum burning. Sure enough he turned it off and it was smoking!! So I went online to find a new vacuum for a decent price and found a Bissell that is made for pet hair. Wow just what we need one to suck up all the dog hair that Sierra likes to shed. I was worried that it would cost a lot so I checked Kohls because they were having a sale. Sure enough it was on sale for $79.99 so I went down to Kohls Tuesday night and they were out. I had also checked and found the same vacuum for the same price not on sale. So since Kohls was out of it I went to Target and get the vacuum. Wednesday morning I vacuumed our room and ths thing worked great! By the time I was done with that room I had to empty the container. It was full of the lovely carpet dirt and pet hair. Later on Jeremy was going to shampoo the carpet fo I decided to vacuum again and it pulled up more dog hair. The carpet has now been shampooed and tomorrow it will get vacummed again to clean the rest of the hair that the carpet shampooer pulled up. Next we will work on the living room floor. I can't wait to see how much crap it sucks up there. I normally hate vacuuming but with this new one I think I will be doing it all the time. This is the new vacuum. Isn't it pretty?

Oh yeah before I forget I am still having foot issues. I thought it was healed and so I did some stuff and it has swelled up again and hurts tonight. So more time off my foot. I really hope it ends soon I want to get back to the gym!! Also Jeremy's mom went ahead and got him a membership for the gym so we can go together now. Jeremy's Birthday is on Wednesday August 5th which is the same day that the Ventura County Fair opens. Not sure what the plan is for his Birthday yet. I did go to the Dodger Game last Saturday night and it happened to be the Hollywood Stars game night. I was amazed to see of all people there...Meat Loaf!!! I will download my camera soon and post some pictures. I am still in shock that Meat Loaf was playing he looks pretty good for his age.

Reality TV

I love reality tv. I love watching people make complete asses of themselfes on national tv. Tonight Hells Kitchen started again. This is one of the better shows. I also watch Big Brother and can't wait for Survivor to start again!! Yes I watch to much tv. Being stuck at home I am watching even more tv and daytime tv sucks!!

Nothing else new here. Just hoping my foot will get better soon. I am tried of trying to stay off of it and am getting bored sitting around.

Foot Update...

I decided to research some more on my foot issue and from what I read it can take 6 to 8 weeks to heal!! I don't have the patience to stay off of it for that long, it has been a week already and I am going crazy. I did way to much on it yesterday and lost my footing in the shower this morning and so now it hurts even more! So I have spent today on the couch watching boring tv, reading a book and coloring. I am hoping that tomorrow I can at least get up and get some laundry done. Jeremy has had to work all weekend he has been gone from like 10am until after midnight so I have been on my own. Tomorrow I am going to have an exciting day of paying car insurance and other bills and then we will be broke again until payday and then we get to pay more bills. Why does it never seem to end?

Friday July 10th

For Emily's birthday she was given 2 tickets to Universal Studios and guess who got to take her, yep thats right me!! This is a long post with a lot of pictures so bear with me.

We did the tram tour first and got to see some sound stages. Next it was on to the robot arm cars. They did an explosion and then the cars dance around. It was pretty neat to watch.

Then it started to rain and we got hit with a big flood. Hollywood magic is so much fun!

Then we got to part the water and go through it. Our car did have water come through the floor and my feet got wet!

This fountain is in all of the old monster movie. I thought it was neat looking and really wanted to take it home with me.

Jaws tried to eat us. I couldn't believe that he was actually working the first 2 times I went it had not been working.

We even got to see the plane crash area from the War of the World movie.

We went on the Jurassic Park water ride twice and of course I was drenched, but since it was so darn hot it felt good.

We tried out the new Simpson ride which replaced the Back to the Future ride. Surprisingly it was a lot of fun.

Emily would not put her head in the sharks mouth so I made her stand next to it.

We watched a show of animal stars. This guy was my favorite!

And of course we had to watch the Waterworld show. I hope that they never get rid of this one. It is the best!!

We had a pretty good day. I would very much like to go back again. The only bummer part was my left foot started hurting when we got there and just kept getting worse throughout the day. By the time we got home I could not walk on it. So on Sunday we went to the urgent care and they took xrays to see if I had a stress facture, which I don't however it was determined that I tore a ligament in my foot. So now I am stuck at home keeping off of it as much as possible and trying to figure out how to properly use the crutches. Now you may ask how this happened and the only thing that I can figure out thanks to my mom is that I wore flip flops on Friday with to much walking in them. My mom said that had heard about girls going to the doctors with foot problems and it is linked to wearing flip flops!! So next time I go somewhere where I will be doing a lot of walking I will not be wearing flip flops. I should hopefully be healed in 2 to 3 weeks. But for now I am stuck at home being bored watching way to much tv and reading some books.

Happy Birthday Emily!!

Today my sister turns 17. Wow that is scarey. She is not supposed to be 17 yet. That just means that I have been out of high school for 16 years. Here are 2 pictures of this bratt child. Not sure what I am going to get her for her birthday yet. I guess I should go out and find something for her.
