A sort of trip to the zoo

I had big plans on Saturday to go to the LA Zoo. We checked the weather and there was only 30% chance of rain and if it was going to rain in la it would be in the afternoon. I was rudely awakened at 6am by rain....not a good sign. Still figured that it would not rain at the zoom until the afternoon, boy was I wrong. It poured on the drive there. We got to the parking lot before the zoo opened and figured we would wait a bit to see if it let up. We waited about 15 minutes and the rain was getting stronger. I decided that we should go to Griffith Park Observatory since it was about 5 minutes away and it is free to get it. We got there and we're able to get a good parking spot, they have very limited parking and you must get there before or right after they open. We did pay the $7 to watch the show in the planetarium. It was very fun. We explored around and saw all the new expanded stuff. I went outside to take some pictures of the view and found that my camera wasn't working. I was a little freaked out since I charged the battery the night before. As it turns out I must have left the camera on somehow and the battery was dead. I am very glad we didn't go to the zoo because I would not have been able to take any pictures and I saved the money to get into the zoo. We will plan another trip to the zoo in January. I do like to go during the winter when more animals seem to be out since it is not so hot.

A boy and his cello

Just a few pictures of Travis and his cello. My poor computer is about ready to be replaced. It took forever to upload these and keeps freezing on me. Another expense  we cant afford right now.

COuld it really be the end of the world??

Hostess annouced this morning that they are closing. NO MORE TWINKIES!!! What is this world coming to? I don't eat twinkies very often but sometimes you just crave a twinkies, with the yellow cake and that creamy filling. What are future generations going to do without twinkies and ding dongs and those yummy little chocolate dounuts?? I may have to buy a lifetime supply of twinkes, only problem is dont they expire??

Well in other news I got to watch my oldest nephew Travis play the cello for the first time last night. He did really good and looked really scared. I will post some pictures of that this weekend while I am locked away in the house enjoying the rain. I had to laugh though, the cello is almost as big as he is.

Thanksgiving is next week??

How is it possible that Thanksgiving is next week?? I don't remember it even being November yet. Maybe I have just been to busy to see that the year is flying by.

In October we lost our little inside kitty, Bella. One night she just went to sleep and didn't wake up. We still arent sure of what happened to her. It could be that she was just sick. Now my old mean cat has decided that the dog is his best friend and he wants to be inside all of the time. Which is fine except for the fact that he wants to get up and be feed at 6 am! My alarm is not set for that early. If I am not up he climbs on me and headbutts me and then rubs his cold nose all over my face. At least he hasnt started to bite me to wake me up. If it wasnt so cold outside he would be sleeping outside again. I cant close the bedroom door because he stands on the other side of it and crys. Damn annoying cat. He doesnt want to sit next to you either, he wants to sit on you. Dont know why in his old age he has decided to be nice.

Anyway one day I will download my camera and post some Halloween pictures. I just seem to forget to do that too.

Do I have time to be sick?

That answer would be no!! Yesterday I was burning hot, and sneezing and coughing quite a bit so last night I took some cold medicine and went to bed. Woke up this morning expecting to feel better but no I feel worse. Now i have all that and a scratchy throat. I don't have time to be sick right now. Was going to bring emergency c to work today but I forgot it at home. Good thing I work in a place where there is plenty if Vitamin C!!

I guess I should update this more often. Not much is new around here. Jeremy had gotten a job with DIal security and they laid him off after 7 days because the supervisor didn't feel like it was going to work out. I am beyond frustrated with the job market here. We filled out applications for Vons and Albertsons on Friday night, yesterday I had him call Vons to check on it and found out that they do open interviews on Mondays, would have been nice to know that when I filled out the application. I am now wondering if each vons store does that and maybe the each do it on a different day. I am still working and I am still part time but at least I am bringing in some money. I am about out of ideas on where to find Jeremy a job. Keep your fingers crossed that he can get a job at a grocery store, maybe we will get discounted groceries.

Aerosmith concert!

Last Monday I finally got to see Aerosmith play at the Hollywood Bowl. Of course they didn't allow cameras in and I tried to take some with my phone but we were far enough away that they came out terrible. Our seats ended up being almost dead center but we were towards the top, just one giant section down from the top. But they were good enough for me to finally enjoy seeing my favorite band. Cheap Trick opened for them and they were pretty good, I am not sure if I like their new music or not but they still sound the same. Aerosmith played for 2 hours so I definitely got my money's worth. For their last song they brought out a surprise guest and it was none other than Johnny Depp or Captian Jack Sparrow. He played his guitar with them and sounded great. My video I took of it was really blurry from the bright lights so I borrowed the above video from YouTube. I still couldn't believe my luck that I got to not only see Aerosmith but I also saw my favorite actor play with them. It was such a great night. I also learned at the bowl it is best to pay the money for valet parking. It was really easy to get my car afterwards and was able to get out of the parking lot a lot quicker!

Importance of annoying things

Yep, that title makes no sense what so ever! Having a hard week this week. Last week our oven finally decided to quit lighting so we can not bake anything, including onion soup potatoes that I so desperatly wanted but we had to cook them in a frying pan instead which meant more oil, but hey who doesnt love fried potatoes??? THen Jeremy's air conditioning in the truck decided to stay ON with the truck OFF....really it stayed on. So $200 later we now have a air conditioning that turns off when it is supposed to. Today I am going to the fun female doctor....hoping to not have to have all of those fun things done when I am there. Really I am just going in to talk to her about a special pill to take that makes you ovulate more and increases the chances of pregnancy. I do not have insurance at the moment but we feel we really shouldnt wait much monger. Who cares if there is no insurance or money in the bank..people have kids all the time without insurance or money...maybe I will get insurance faster at work if there is a kid on the way.

Journey 2 the mysterious island

We watched journey 2 the mysterious island last night. I really enjoyed it. It reminded me of Jurassic park, goodies and national treasure all mixed into one. Plus it had The Rock in it and he is pretty good looking. I think I may actually have to buy this movie I laughed through a lot of it. In other news we are pretty boring people and have not gone anywhere lately. We did go have dinner at Andrea's tonight and went to target. Now we are home and I am watching tv iN the bedroom while Jeremy is playing video games in the living room. Another exciting Saturday night for us! Emily finally passed her driving test a week ago and can now legally drive. She got it on a Friday and didn't go driving again until we made her drive to our house on Tuesday. I remember when I got my license I was never home. All I wanted to do was drive. At least she can go places when she needs to know. We also did go to my favorite store today, bath and body works! They are having their semi annual sale which means they have a lot of things on sale at 75% off. I got some new lotions and hand soap. I only spent $35 and saved over $55. I love when I save more money than I spend. Well that's all for now. I am going to watch another movie and go to bed.

Penn & Teller

See that guy playing the instrament (dont know what its called) thats Penn! Jeremy noticed it a few minutes after we sat down and hardly anyone in the audience noticed. Your not supposed to take any pictures there but i took this blurry picture. They did a really great magic show. I was glad that we went to ot even though the tickets werent cheap. Jeremy won a $400 jackpot on a penny machine so i let him spend some of it on something he really wanted to do. I loved watching Penn on celebrity apprentice, its a shame that donald trump fired him a few weeks ago. If you are in vegas and want to see a show i would totally recommend them!

The best beef jerky in the universe

Thats what the package claims...and guess is true!!! We took a trip to vegas over the weekend and stopped at Alien Fresh Jerky in Baker on the way home. This stuff is incredible. We ate an entire bag of honey teriaky flavor on the way home, it was so good. I wish we would have stopped there on the way to vegas but we didnt. Now that we know how good it is we will ne stopping there more often. In fact they have a website and i will be ordering more. The only problem with ordering it is they had a special at the store of 3 bags for $20. I didnt see that special online but am going to email them and ask about it.

We did do something fun in Vegas, we saw Penn and Teller do their magic show. Totally worth the price of the tickets. I will tell you more later. Its way past my bedtime!

What I want for my Birthday...

Haha, that title reminds me of the theme Ralphie has to write in A Christmas Story, except I don't want a Red Rider Gun, with a compass and a stock and a thing that tells time. Oh no, I want tickets to see Aerosmith in August at the Hollywood Bowl. I am going to check ticket prices this weekend when they go on sale. I have loved Aerosmith for as long as I can remember. One of my very first cassette tapes was Aerosmith Permant Vacation. I only watch American Idol for Steven Tyler. I must go to this concert.

In other news I heard on the news Sunday night after our big rain storm..they said STORM WATCH. Ha Ha, it was a little late for that considering the rain was gone by then.

Somethings missing

All winter I felt like somehting was missing and this morning I figured out what it is. We have not had Storm Watch 2012 yet this year!! Yesterday I frooze all day and today is supposed to be 71 and sunny. Next week we may get a little rain on Tuesday, but where is Storm Watch 2012??? It certainly isn't here. I wonder if we will even get to have it this year.

Hopefully i will catch up on blogging soon. I still need to post pictures from our trip in December.

Valentines Day and plumbing issues

We are not very big on Valentines Day. To me its just a day to waste money and buy stuff that no one really wants. Why show someone that you love them one day a year when you should be doing that everyday. Anyway, Jeremy did go pick us up dinner from Dominicks, we had yummy salad and pizza. He did speak with the manager and found out that they are getting their cappucino ice cream back which is good because we stopped going because they didnt have my ice cream.

I got out of the shower this morning and discovered that the shower wasnt draining. Jeremy went into the bathroom a little while later he noticed that the floor was all wet and there was water coming from the bottom of the toilet. EWWWWWW. I went into the other bathroom and saw water in the bathtub and when I left for work there was water in the driveway. He called the park because last time this happened it was the parks plumbing, anyway they are sending someone over to look at it. Hopefully it is the parks problem and they can fix it today. If its not the parks issue then we are going to call my dad because I can't afford a plumber right now.

Not bad for 9 years old

My car hit 50,000 miles this week. I never drove more than 2 miles to work in the past 9 years so the miles didnt add up very quickly. Now i am driving 10 miles to work so the miles are showing. Poor car.

Happy New Year

Just thought i would post a quick picture od my dads cat Jack. He was hanging out in a box...jack in the box. Haha.

Anyway we hung out at Jeremys moms on new years eve. Had some food and a few drinks and were home before 10. I tried to go to bed but we have rude neighbors who were up setting off fireworks. I just realized i didnt even take any pictures from that night.
