Back from the abyss. Must catch up. California should not have been an abyss but the iPad decided it didn't like the WiFi device Hub brought (that it uses sometimes at home). Hub forgot the charger for his work computer (Freudian slip?) so we couldn't use it. Hotel didn't have WiFi. No time to find a Starbucks and sit.

Was very fun. Great to go to Disney and decide what food I wanted(Hmm.. burger & fries, Mexican, pizza?) and be able to get it. Boys had more fun than they thought they would at Disney. They went off together and saw what they wanted.

Boys took a Surfing lesson at Bolsa Chica beach which is at the north end of Huntington Beach so we didn't see the competition. They did well. J go on his feet on the board almost immediately. M got up to one knee and almost standing.

Universal Studios was a crowded mess. They don't do crowds well like Disney. Had some good stuff but I had to pack a lunch.

Traffic was crazy. We tried to go to the La Brea Tar Pits on Tue before the airport but we just sat in traffic for so long, we had to give up.

Anyway, we try to read & catch up. Hope nothing too exciting happened while I was gone. smile.gif

Traffic is a royal pain out here for sure.

Bolsa Chica.........Jim's favorite beach. Across the street there is a great birdng area. I forgot about it

Sounds like M & J did really well and bet they had such fun

Wasn't where you'd get a surf board to rent there.

Glad you had a good time but sorry you missed the B Pitts......next time maybe.

Psills!!!!

Happy Phriday the 13th!!!! biggrin.gif

Hell forgot it was the 13th!!!!!! Maybe that's why the ............. hit the fan todaylaugh.gifcool.gif

2 transients have left the building! The other 2 move out TODAY!!!!!! I will have my gym back!!!

WooooHoooo

Oh crap! and I'm on call.....

Well at least there isn't a full moon. Our place would go crackers with the full moons.

HI-------all the rest of the sillies.

Peter.....don't miss the sketters.....one bit out in So Ca.

We can sit out all nite....... un like Pa or Ohio.

Yeah, but many of our customers own cottages well north of Toronto. They go there for the summer and take their pets with them. We get a spike just after LaboUr day when they come back to the city and realize that they left the leash, ball, toy, food, or whatever behind.

I hope they leave it all at the cottage. What is the hot dog thingie for Xmas this year? My dog won't care, he only loves his squeaky tennis balls and frozen pb filled Kong.

It's finally summer here! Got up to 90 today, and three days ago I was wearing a sweater :blink: . I've been slowly moving stuff back into my kitchen and cleaning it as I go.

Gotta do homework. One more week of school, then off to Spain!

Jess - we need pics of your kitchen on the book. Or did I miss them when I was in the abyss? Dining room almost sort of finished, will post pic soon. Hope the crazy wall cover translates, we love it!

Emily- M & I are in love with the fruity poodle. He has always said he would have a big dog like a Rotty or a lab mix and a little fluffy Bischon or Yorkie. He saw Hank and now he might want a Standard instead of the small fluffy. In fact, in 5 years when he has his own apartment at college, could he have Hank? just kidding. :P

No, no. no! Canna have Hainque... . .. . ..he is too adorable - - can't give him up. M could have one of my children, though...not a problem there.... .. . :lol:

I must post a new pic of the Hankster. Unbelievable how much he has grown in two weeks. I get up in the morning, I look at him, and he's bigger. And yes, M should absolutely have a standard poodle - - they're big, non-shedding, frighteningly intelligent, patient.. . . . they need a fair amount of exercise, however, and they need a lot of mental stimulation. Like the brilliant border collie, 'tis absolute torture for a standard to be kept sitting in the house with nothing to do all day.

Mygawd, I'm just looking at him now. .. .... ..he almost comes up to Elsie's shoulder. When did THAT happen?? :wacko:

I haven't seen that one before, but I have a big framed poster of a similar 1940's woman (or was it during the first World War? Could be either) standing in her rudimentary kitchen and in big letters around her it proclaims, "The kitchen is the key to victory -- Eat less bread!"

My baby is going today to get his High School locker and try to find his classrooms. :huh:

Mygawd, Jack does this next week.. . . . ....just ridiculous that this little guy is in grade nine. .... . ... :o

Heelooow! Got most of the ink outta the carpet, but I ran out of hairspry, so I will have to pick up some more. It was a banner day here... Still too hot to do a damned thing. Too hot to even do a bit of tanning for my trip-although I'm all about the sunscreen!! We walked Max to school at 8:30 this morning and I was sweating up a storm! So he had his first day, I got most of my packing done, Max started his first gymnastics class with the older boys- no more preschool all around :( and I caught Madeleine doing the "Mary Catherine Gallegher" today and I lifted an arm, took a wiff and about fell over! The kid's already got BO! Between gymnastics and an hour of yoga with me tonight- good Lord!! I don't want to start putting chemicals under her arms just yet, so I think we'll just go for a daily shower...there goes my water bill!

I've never been so ready for a vaca in my life!!!
