Here are all my postings on facebook for the last year.
1/31: We attended a church conference last night with Elder Bruce Porter. He is one of our leaders and happens to have a background in Poli Sci. He voiced his concerned about the divisiveness going on in politics right now He asked everyone to avoid contention in speaking of politics and for everyone to support and pray for the president. He said all good Christians should rise above their difference and unite.r the president. He said all good Christians should rise above their differences and unite.
2/13: In Target, Monterey was running off so I had to put her in the cart (with no belt.) She said "Mom, if you don't let me out, I'm gonna scream." She started standing up and I told her: "If you don't sit down, I am going to scream." She was so shocked, she sat down and didn't say another word. So glad she didn't test to see if I really would do it.ee if I really would do it.
review: I loved it! details: the story? is AMAZING. The songs and talent? were SUPERB. The language? Well it is a good thing I have experience working in LA Probation Camps 'cause that is the last time I heard language like that. (I think it was accurate and integral to the story - not for shock value.) So if I suddenly start using potty language, you’ll know why.

3/10: blaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went online to register for the Disney give-a-day-get-a-day and the program has ended. #%$&#! I didn't read the fine print that said only one million can do it and then it is over. Procrastination is an ugly thing, but even uglier when it costs you $420. I'll see you at Disneyland later this year with the word IDIOT tattoo’d on my forehead.isneyland later this year with the word IDIOT tattoo'd on my forehead.
3/13: We are an army of cleaning machines. After three hours of work, I am confident to say that every surface has been swept, mopped, dusted, scrubbed, scoured, vacuumed, and polished. Now we can spend the rest of the day having fun. (And finishing the laundry - that is an all day affair when we are doing all the sheets, towels,rugs, etc.) We can go out and have fun in-between switching loads.

5/11: Hey all our desert buddies: we will be in town this Sat. the 15th and would love to see you all. Maya and Monterey need a forum to play and I'm all about air conditioning so I made a call to Pump It Up ... details to follow. For now plan on coming with your little ones from 5:30 until 7:30 to frolic and giggle. Spread to anyone who doesn’t check their facebook.ead to anyone who doesn't check their facebook!
5/16: Just got back from a wonderful trip to our former home in Palm Desert. Our vacation mantra was "upbeat and relaxing." We ate at our favorite place: Fisherman’s. We stayed at our favorite place: Shadow Ridge. We saw all our favorite people. We went to see Ryan's grandma, who is not doing well and even she was in good spirits and the visit went much better than we anticipated. Good times.d spirits and the visit went much better than we anticipated. Good times.
8/22: Beachcomber Cafe
okay confession time. I cancelled by dentist appointment, because I wasn't in the mood (- well I am a little sick. I am getting over a cold. I am in the sore-throat at the end phase.) I am in the mood to bake: whoopie pie time! So far I have a batch of classics going, a PB & J, and the banana are in the oven while I make their cream cheese filing. Overkill? Me thinks so.

10/3: My car is testing my love. How much more will it do to me before I forsake it and get a new one. The problem is - all of its issues are minor and weird. Newest quirk: If I lock it, it won't disarm unless I bypass it. So I get to look like a criminal every time I get into my car. So I leave it unlocked. Is it wrong for me to leave it unlocked and put a big sign on it that says “Steal Me.”g for me to leave it unlocked and put a big sign on it that says "Steal me."
10/22: Madison reports to me that the way to earn extra credit in science is to give the teacher a movie gift card. I said "Really?" Today she came home and explained "one way to earn extra credit is to see a science related movie and write a paragraph about it and then turn it in with you ticket stub." This is why I wanted proof before I alerted the media and contacted the principal and school board. proof before I alerted the media and contacted the principal and school board.
11/18: I wish I could fast forward about ten hours and have everything on my TO DO LIST done. Really now, is that asking too much? Here it is:

get out the fondue pots (done)
pick up teacher evaluations
teach three classes
finish delivering invitations

Mystere by Cirque du SoleilTI has the slowest valet on the entire strip! But the show was great.
Rainforest Cafe Normally, I refuse to go to bad food-overpriced-theme restaurants. However Maya and Monterey had been begging for the past year. This was one of their Christmas presents.
12/25: Presents opened, breakfast burritos consumed, scooters ridden, new clothes tried on, Just Dance 2 has been danced to, and now we are watching "A Christmas Story." Merry Christmas to all. (I wonder if anyone would care if I crawled back into bed?)
