Beer Samples

I met with Kim on Tuesday and we went to Buffalo Bill's in downtown Hayward. We each had the beer sampler and Kim educated me a little on the finer points of beer tasting. Contrary to reports elsewhere, I did not get "plowed." heehee We had some yummy jalapeƱos that started this nasty rumor of my inability to hold my liquor. I managed to get a really hot one and it did a number on me. Whew! was it ever hot!

Conversation was great and we laughed a lot. After we finished stuffing ourselves, we took a walk down B Street and stopped at Starbucks for coffee and frappuccino. We walked back up A Street and I took Kim back to her hotel.

Thanks, Kim. :)

Saturday Musings

I've just been puttering around on the computer making sig pics for folks. I did not expect the response I got when I made that offer - talk about a deluge! I think I'm done with about a third of the requests that were made.

Last day of school was yesterday but the girls will continue to do some work through the summer - math, reading, writing. We went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium on Thursday and it was fantastic. The shark tank was very cool with some huge tuna and huge-mongous sunfish. I didn't know they were that big. Three divers entered the tank while we were there. One was cleaning while the other two kept an eye on the sharks (and waved at the kids). All of the exhibits were beautiful and I'm looking forward to when we can spend some more time there.

I haven't heard much from my big girl. She tends to only call me when she needs something but I take what I can get. She owes us money so it's hard to just call her to pass the time of day without that subject coming up and I'm a little tired of asking about it. Oh well.

We're gearing up for the big trip to Washington in just a few weeks. My mom is going to fly out here and drive up with us. My brother is getting married on the 7th and I'll be making the cake. I need to get busy making sugar flowers so I'm not rushing to do it the week before. I called my friend that lives in Sequim and she offered for us to stay with them the entire week of the 9th-13th. I was only thinking of staying with them for a couple of days and then hotelling it after that. She said that would be silly, that their home is central to many of the things we want to do and we should just make their house our home base for the week. What a financial boon for us! After that it's on to the Peep Meet. I'm so looking forward to that. It'll be very cool to meet some more of the great OT peeps.

Wow! What Knockers!

Oh, heck, but I had a good time with Bravie. :-) What a great person. We met at a Chinese restaurant central to both of us and we took the Banana with us. The employees were quite enamored with Sanjana and were eager to take pictures for us.

We had so much food that we probably could have invited a few other customers over and still had leftovers.

The Lemon Chicken was by far the best. Bravie even fed me some. Yum!

Sanjana was fairly quiet throughout the meal. I don't think he was very hungry either because he didn't eat very much.

We laughed and talked and enjoyed a great meal and I'm looking forward to getting together again very soon. :-)

I hope nobody saw that!

I'm sitting here with a bag of frozen corn on my knee. Yes, I fell out of a chair and skinned my knee. I was sitting in an office chair and leaned over a bit to make sure that the grape vine I had just thrown away actually hit the garbage can. The chair started tipping and I tried to catch myself but couldn't. I ended up on the floor with the chair on top of me and skinned knee. I thought I might need some help getting up but then I realized I didn't want to have to explain how I actually got there in the first place. Geez, who falls out of a chair anyway???

This 'n That

Sooo... it's been a few months. I said from the start that I didn't think I would actually end up posting to this thing but tonight I figured why not.

I've been busy with the girls and school. They resumed swim lessons a couple of weeks ago and started a PE class once a week. Lots of gymnastic type stuff in there as the teacher is former Bulgarian gymnast. They are having so much fun that my little Jane decided that she would try a flip on our bed (even though I spoke to her very strongly against doing that) and we ended up in the emergency room because she landed on her neck and sprained it. Better safe than sorry. They x-rayed her and said she sprained it really good and no flips for the next week. She got to keep the collar they put on her when we got there so she had a good time with that for a couple of days.

My dear sweet husband bought me a bike a couple of weeks ago and we've been having a great time with family bike rides. Last Friday night we went down the road to a nearby Jack-in-the-Box and then rode down the street to one of those little parking lot fairs. The girls rode some of the rides and then we bumped into one of their little freinds from church. The girls had enough tickets to share with her so they went on a couple more rides with her. Then we rode our bikes home. Hopefully everyone will be in shape and skilled enough to do some riding when we go to Washington this summer.

Here's a pic of my bike -

I quit taking Wellbutrin a few weeks ago and must say that I feel better than I have in a long time. I think meds are great as long as you need them. I felt like they had served their purpose for me and my doc agreed so here I am. :)
