A few weeks ago we were invited to go to Universal Studios with some people from Jeremy's work. They have a special where you buy your one day ticket and you get to go back all year for FREE!!! So us being the nice people we are decided that Todd needed to visit Universal Studios since he had never been there. We arranged it with his mom for her to buy him a ticket and we took him on Saturday. We had a lot of fun. Sorry but these pictures are out of order and I can't figure out how to fix them.We saw Homer and Marge at Moe's.
We went to Krustyland and rode The Simpons ride. This ride is crazy, its a motion stimulator ride and you sit in a car (it was a remodled car from the Back to the Future ride that they used to have) and off you go into a crazy adventure at Krustyland. I would go on this all day long if the lines weren't so long.
We got to see a fake shark on the tram ride. I think this picture was actually taken when we went before but the one Jeremy took on Saturday came out yucky.
We did get to see Frankenstein. I would have gotten in line to get a picture with him but it was pretty crowded around him.
Here is Todd on his very first tram ride, this is the backlot tour which shows you some pretty neat stuff.
We got to see the Deathmobile from the Animal House movie. There are a bunch of studio cars there but I did not want to bore people with tons of pictures of cars.
When we got to the Bates Motel, Norman Bates was loading a dead body into the trunk of his car. Can you see him? He is right behind the tree. We were sitting in the very back row on the tram so it was hard to see him.
Well at least it was hard to see him until he ran up behind us. I got a closer picture but it came out blurry!! He was pretty creepy and would just watch you and give a odd smile.
We did most of the rides, well since there is only 4 real rides, we got on 3 of them before it got super crowded and it was very hot. We only stayed until about 5 because I was not feeling good from the heat anymore, but since Todd got the same ticket deal we did we can take him back again so he can do all the stuff we missed. Universal is very different than Disneyland. They have more shows than anything and you can meet a lot of characters. I wanted to get my picture with Homer Simpson but we will do that next time.Todd was surprisingly very good and we only had to beat on him a few times. For the most part he listened and stayed with us. I had a problem with him not paying attention to where we were going when I took him to Knotts Berry Farm a few years ago. He does get distracted and will walk ahead of you even though he has no clue where we are going. But for being a bratty 15 year old he was very good. I told Emily that since the special goes on until the end of April we would try and work it out to take her also, but we took Todd first since she got to go last year for her birthday and I have taken her to Disneyland a lot. So if anyone has the desire to go to Universal Studios go before April 30th and you can go the rest of the year for FREE!!! I love that word!! My next post will be from the Train Festival In Filmore today. I would do it now but I need to go to bed.

Somehow I have made it through another week at work! Its been a pretty quiet week which has been good for my ear infection. Last night was a terrible night. Everytime I went to lay down my ear hurt. I was able to get a few hours of sleep and then was up in extreme pain and had to take pain medication. Once that kicked in and the pain started to go away, about 2 hours later, it was already almost 4 am! So here I am at work with not a whole lot of sleep and I really wish it was 5 already!
Its also tri tip sandwich weekend! Every year Filmore has the train festival and my dad bar b ques tri tip for sandwiches for the historical society so every year we go and have a tri tip sandwich and chili to support them. I just hope that I feel good enough to go because I really want a tri tip sandwich!

I got up today and took all the medications that I am now taking and then I noticed that my throat is sore and now my eyes are burning and I'm feeling like I'm running a fever. I wonder if that is some weird side effect from the stuff the doctor has me on, I should I'm hoping that it is a side effect and that I am not getting sick. I am already on antibiotics for hopefully all this will go away tomorrow. Right now I am so sleepy that I can't think straight!

Last night I discovered that my ear was starting to hurt again and was making my jaw hurt. Well this time I was not going to wait until the weekend to go to urgent care (yes urgent care, not Disneyland Aunt Heather!), I called my doctor and got in right away. He said that there is fluid in the ear and he thinks the antibiotics they gave me just a few weeks ago did not work. So he gave me some stronger ones and another drug that should loosen up the fluid and clear it all out and hopefully I will be feeling better in a few days. So no trip to urgent care this week just a quick trip to my regular doctor.

So I was woken up this morning at 1:21 am by Jeremy and he said that he steped on his belt and the long shiney part that goes into the whole to keep your pants (sorry don't know the name for that piece) up went into his foot. At the time I didn't think much about it because I was sleeping....yep I was sleeping at 1:21 am! So this morning he shows it to me and that long shiney thing went into the bottom of his foot and came out by his heal. He had put bandaids on it because it was bleeding. I told him to call the doctor and see if he need have it looked at. He is now waiting for the doctor to call him back to see if he needs to go in today. I don't know about anyone else but that would teach me to keep my pants off the ground or at least take the belt out of them and put it up somewhere.

Did anyone drink any green beer today? I didn't get to have any this year. I have decided that one day (probably many years from now) we are going to take a trip to Ireland. Jeremy still wants to go to Bora Bora but I have always wanted to go to Ireland and see some old castles. I am not sure how expensive this trip will be but I think we should start saving now.
Not much else is going on around here. It has been way to hot and I wish it would rain and cool things off. I think if it is still hot this weekend we will go to the movies to get out of the heat for a while. We really could use air conditioning in this house. Maybe we will go watch Alice in Wonderland. Jeremy did not go with me when I saw it 2 weeks ago and I really want to watch it again.
I have not been able to sleep good this week. Time change always messes me up and I would really like to get a full nights sleep. Sunday night I slept for a whole 2 hours and then had to get up and go to work. Monday night I got about 4 hours of sleep and last night was about 5. I should probably get off the computer and go to bed now, but the problem is I am not tired yet!!

I want to try to make some things to sell to make extra money, but I can't seem to come up with any good ideas. Does anyone have anything ideas for things that I can make that won't cost me a lot of money?
My mom mentioned in her blog that she watched 2012 and didn't seem to like it very much. Jeremy and I rented it the other night and I laughed through out most of it. Yes I know it's a disaster movie and is not supposed to be funny but it was so over the top with distruction and places falling into the ocean that I couldn't help but laugh. I am actually watching it again now before we have to take it back again tomorrow. I may have to buy this movie eventually.

Why does it seem like when we start to get ahead we always spend more money than what we have? Rent went through today and I get paid tomorrow and my check will be spent by Friday then we have another week to get through before we get paid again. Where does they money go? I have no idea. I had to spend some at Target this weekend to get some things that I have put off buying. There is only so long we can go before needing toothpaste and toilet paper. I paid a little extra on the credit cards last month so I hope it should be ok to just make the minimum payment this month. I still need to make an appointment to get our taxes done but we have to pay for that too. I would get a second job but I am so worn out from work that I don't know if I could handle that. This weekend we are going to work on getting our junk together and will get a spot at the swap meet soon to see if we can unload some of it for extra cash and then the rest will get donated. I was going to work on going through some stuff in our closet tonight but I could not sleep last night. The crazy wind we are having is making me sneeze and giving me a stuffy head. No cold though, just allergies. I took some benadryl but that didn't help. I had to close the window and then I got to hot so I had to turn on the fan and then I was freezing so I had to get another blanket. I hope the wind ends soon! Ok enough complaining for one night. I need to go to bed.

Sunday night I was looking around the house and I realized that we have way to much junk. I threw away 2 bags of useless junk and now each night I look to see what else I can get rid of. I still have the stuff I have to keep, but that's mostly stuff that was given to me as gifts over the years. Like I have a stuffed koala bear that my grandma and grandpa got for me many years ago and I don't even remember where they got it but I still have it. But the other stuff that we don't need needs to go. I need to convince jeremy that we need to take a bunch of stuff to the swap meet and unload on those that are willing to buy crap. We could get some money to spend on non crap like things! Yep I need to get rid of my junk.
