My Summer Vacation

Ok, the end of my summer vacation would be more accurate. Today marked to momentous occasions here at our house. The first was the unusual police activity. A visitor to our house commented that we must live in a "real good" neighborhood, which actually we do live in a pretty decent area, but today (and the last week) were not examples of this.

Today, the police pulled over a car on the main road in front of our house. Working in and around the house, we just casually noticed it until a second police car showed up. Then they began to search his car, so it got kind of interesting. At some point though, the second car left and minutes after her left, was pulling over another car in front of our house. Now then, we're not sure what transpired that prompted the police to get up in arms (literally), but there it was. Bill was yelling to get the girls to the back of the house because the police were drawing guns. After a few minutes they had both passenger and driver cuffed on the sidewalk. In the mean time, Mr. I-just-had-my-car-searched was standing behind his car, with his arms out to his sides as if to say, "What about me?" (This was while the couple was still cuffed on the sidewalk.) The police waved him on, so he left. About 10 minutes after that, they removed the couples cuffs, shook hands with the driver, and sent them on their way. That was the city provided fun for the day.

Now then, the rest of the entertainment was provided by me. Foolishly I thought I might go back to playing hockey (and for some reason I still want to), but if today was any indication of my ability to do so, then it's a pipe dream. I decided to go to Give Hockey a Try Day (GHATD) put on by the NCWHL. I'd like to say there's no pictures of my foolishness, but some of my friends were there that seemed more than happy to take photos. (If you did get any identifying ones, I'll pay you good money to destroy them.)

In any case, according to the critics I still don't bend my knees, can't do a crossover (duh), and generally played like I always had (there's a reason I never moved up a division people.) In any case, I had a lot of fun, fell a couple of times including once on a great breakaway (not to hard to do at GHATD). I'm embarrassed to say that I had 3, maybe even 4 clear shots on goal and I biffed them all. So, I sadly hang my head, head home, and wonder when I'll be able to do it again. Lookout green, here comes the best biffer you've ever seen. ;)

So, that's the end of my summer vacation. This week it's back to work for me. blech!

Another 8 hours of my life gone!

Ok, yesterday I had to take a "Super User" computer class for a new system we're getting at work. It was definitely one of the longest 8 hour periods in my life. Let me give you a sample.

Instructor: There are 3 ways to close your window, the "x" in the top right corner of the window, the exit door on the tool bar, or the exit option in the File drop down menu. (All were explained as well)

Instructor: Please close your windows

LA (lame ass) student: I can't get my window to close, what do I do?

Instructor: What have you tried?

LA student: Nothing, I can't figure it out.

The instructor (being very patient) walks over to her station and helps her out.

5 min later

LA student: Now how do I exit this again?


At least she didn't come back after lunch. The afternoon session went much smoother, but it's still 8 hours of my life that I will never get back. Sigh.

Dinner Alternatives

Tried a new event tonight on two counts. The first was that I had the first date with my husband (no kids) since the girls were born. Yay us!

The second is that we went to 1DinnerSolutions event. It's a place where they do all the prep work (cleaning, chopping, etc.)and then we come in, follow a recipe to put together 40 dinners (10 meals that serve 4 people each.) It was actually quite fun. We had sort of tried some of their dinners before and weren't overly impressed, but the ones we did tonight seemed pretty good. Probably because we put them together ourselves, so we could add more of what we liked and leave off things we disliked. So now we have a freezer full of dinners (which are better than fast food or take out) and the memory of a relaxing evening out.

Really weird too - I ran into a friend of mine that I hadn't seen in almost a year. We were sitting at a table and in she strolled with another girlfriend of hers. It was nice to be able to chat and catch up.

We just may do it again in August.

Sweet Relief

Just got back from the dentist where they replaced the temporary crown I had lost AND they entertained the girls while doing it. I am once again mostly pain free. Yeah!

They fly, they creep, they crawl

Since Liz and Andrea have seen fit to update us with dead fly details, and Viv keeps us up on the antics of the spiders at her house (and the population fluctuations), I thought I'd send out an update on the ant situation.

I started at the most basic level of what everyone passed on to me, pepper. Along the same lines were cinnamon, paprika, turmeric, and a few other spices, all of which I was warned stained, thus the reason for starting with pepper. It seems to have been a good starting point. Other than my house smelling like black pepper now, we have been fairly ant free for a week now - Woo hoo!! Keep in mind that this does not kill the ants, merely repels them from sharing the same space that we do which makes me happy. It also makes me a little happy to see their crunchy little butts go running when sprinkled with pepper.

Dental Issues

Oh yeah, one last thing - the temporary crown I had placed (while waiting for my I'm-oh-so-old permanent crown)fell out and I'm in constant pain, have a headache, can't eat, drink, or brush my teeth (gross.) Must see dentist in A.M..

The last 24 hours and Up, up

The last 24 hours have been rather interesting. Yesterday started off with my SIL coming over to quilt with me (yes, for those that don't know, I do quilt.) My parents also came by, so they took the girls for a walk, and another walk, and yet one more walk before they left. Sam napped for a very short while, Riley revolted, so both to bed early last night. This is where the fun begins.

I was sitting in the nursery and suddenly heard someone yelling, "Help, help me. She's hurting me, she's stealing my things. Help me please." A few more helps and then things got quiet. I couldn't decide if the person was serious or someone goofing off (we have a lot of silly teenagers in the area). The front drapes were open, so I walked to the edge of the window to peer out, couldn't see much, but there appeared to be a person sitting at the edge of the lawn. I foolishly opened the front door to get a better look, couldn't tell what they were doing, noone else around. Closed and LOCKED door, went to get Bill out of bed. He wasn't about to go out there either (at this time we had both decided through a little covert observatoin that this person didn't seem to be injured,etc.) We thought it'd be best to allow the authorities that be deal with it, so we called 911. After a somewhat lengthy call to get all the details we notice a police car drive by and continue down the street, then it comes back and disappears down the street the other direction never stopping. We call 911 back, and they inform us that the police didn't see anyone. That's because they didn't turn onto the side street (we're on a corner) like we told them in the first call. Back they come again, and this time they stop. Bill goes out the side door and they detain him along with this other person - we're assuming it's because they aren't sure who they were called for. When it becomes clear that it's the other person, they send Bill on his way. Apparently the person was rather intoxicated, showed no injuries, so they gave them the option of a cab or going in with them. Apparently whatever was decided, they person ended up going with the police leaving a large pile of trash and a broken Yager Meister bottle in my front yard for me to clean up.

Thinking the excitement was over, Bill went back to bed (I was suffering with Liz' insomnia). Over the baby monitor I hear Sam start fussing. I wait a few minutes as sometimes she will settle down. Then I hear, "Up, up", Sams' mantra lately. I go to check out the monitor and don't see her, so I assume Bill has picked her up. A few short seconds later Riley starts to cry (she's uncovered herself again and is cold.) I go in to rectify the situation only to be informed by Bill that Sams' "Up, up" was her triumphant way of informing us that she had climbed out of her crib. The kid is 14 1/2 months old. This isn't supposed to be happening yet, but then again that's the story of Sam. Anyway, she snuggled in with Daddy and stayed there the rest of the night.

The rest of the 24 hours was comprised of more quilting, swimming at my parents house where the girls learned to blow bubbles and jump in the pool. They cried when it was time to get out. Dinner (both girls are doing better with a fork), then bedtime where so far all is quiet. I'm off to dreamland myself - hopefully.

Bike lanes are there for a reason.

Sadly all bicyclists pay the price for the few rude ones out there that give bicycling a bad name. To those of you who feel the need to assert your rights and ride down the middle of the street, holding up other traffic when there is a PERFECTLY GOOD BIKE LANE NOT BEING USED, you are not doing yourself any favors. It's people like you that make drivers mad, cause them to drive erratically around bicyclists, and endanger everyones lives. You are doing the planet, yourselves, and others a great service by riding your bikes, but please try to be courteous to those who may not be as selfless as you are. In your pursuit of health, please add manners and consideration for others to your list so that we might all enjoy and yes, even share the road together.

Tea or not to tea

I have to say thanks to Andrea (or maybe more accurately, Andrea's employer) for turning me on to Tejava. According to the label it is "Premium Iced Tea, Handpicked, Microbrewed, Unsweetened." It all seems to be accurate. Yum, yum. Perhaps this should be on the Food Blog.

Busy, busy day

Started the day out by going to the dentist - it was the girls first visit. Surprisingly, Sam opened her mouth up and let the dentist poke around a little. Riley otoh, only let her peak once, then clamped down and turned her head every other time she tried. They both got balloons with slinkys attached which they really like. Sam liked hers so much, she chewed it off the string and cried when it floated away up to the ceiling.

After that, went to breakfast at Joes Original Pancake House in Los Alto. The food here is usually good, and was today. The service also is usually pretty good (not excellent, but good) but was horrible today. They didn't bring my hot chocolate, we asked for the girls eggs first as they were starving (they came almost last) and Bill's breakfast didn't come until the girls and I were done with our breakfast. Then we sat for another 10 minutes till I finally went to the front to get the bill which was wrong, waited some more, got the correct bill, paid (didn't leave a tip for only the second time in my life) and left. Despite this, I would still recommend you try it out if you like pancakes - they have every variation you could possibly think of including crab pancakes.

Our day did not end there. I took the girls to meet with some moms and their kids from my twins group. We had a lot of fun, but my children moved from blanket to blanket like little thiefs, stealing the toys of the other kids. I'll be putting them out as pick pockets any day now. ;)

After that, we went by the Ethiopian place on the Alameda and it made us think of our friends Liz and Andrea (cuz it's where they go for Ethiopian food). As a result, we stalked Auntie Andrea and took a nice walk to Printers Ink Cafe, had a great open faced mozzarella and tomato sandwich, walked back, toured her office, then headed home which is where I am now.

Almost dinner time, gotta go.

Ants update II

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention with the pepper - ants really don't like it. I surrounded some of them yesterday with it (let's call it a test) before I actually lined the baseboards with it. They were very flustered, didn't know where to turn, and were basically climbing all over each other in their frenzy. I was kind though, and relieved their stress by reducing their complexity (See post from July 13th, Ant Invasion 2005).

Ok, I'm officially old

Just got back from the dentist a bit ago, and have been informed that I am getting two crowns. I've never had more than a small filling before. This is the dental work of old people. Next thing you know I'll be requiring a walker. :(

Ant update

Ok, we haven't called the exterminator yet - thought we'd try some of the home solutions first. We went with pepper along the baseboards last night and so far, no ants today. Woo hoo. After spending most of yesterday battling them, this was a pleasant surprise. Will keep you posted on the ant war, but right now it's 1 for the mighty pepper and 0 for mother nature. Of course I have been sneezing all day.

Ants Everywhere!!

Ok, we've been doing battle with the ants for weeks now. Bill has sprayed around the house, under the house, we've wiped up ant trails galore with soap, 409, and windex, and yet they still keep coming. This morning was apparently their biggest onslaught yet. They marshalled their forces to surround us - the living room (aka: the girls playroom) had ant trails around all four sides this morning, a heavy black one about 10 ants wide that traversed under the sofa, and numerous other small ones. The room was semi-dark this morning when I got up with the girls so I didn't notice them at first. I was sitting at my computer when Sam came up to me, I leaned over to kiss her and noticed she had about 30 ants crawling on her. After getting them all off her and passing her off to Stacey, I checked Riley who also had about 30 ants crawling on her. Cleaned her off, passed her to Stacey and spent the next 1 1/2 to 2 hours cleaning up ants. Why do I tell you this long story? Because now they are attacking my babies, and that's personal, so any hints, tips, tricks, or good exterminators that you know of would be greatly appreciated. I desperately need to end this infusion. HELP PLEASE!!

Andrea, Where does poop go, phase II?

As you can tell, we've had another incident involving poop. Yesterday Riley learned how to take her diaper off. I thought it was associated with the fact that we got some new diapers - apparently that was not the case. We found out the hard way when she was back in her old diapers today.

I was sitting at the computer when I noticed an odor, before I turned around I said, "Ok, who has the dirty diaper?" Usually when I say this they come running to get their pants changed. Noone came running this time and I soon found out why. As I turned around I was greeted by Samantha with a fist full of poop and a diaper. My gaze quickly went to Riley who, as you guessed, was happily dancing around naked with poop on her feet, leg, bottom, and hands. As I jumped up, they both took off running, spreading the poop across the living room. Thank goodness we had already ripped out the carpet - the hardwood floor is much easier to clean.

I know it shouldn't, but it still amazes me how fast they can do things like this.

Weekend update

This weekend was extra special because it is the first weekend I have officially had off since I went back to work from my extended maternity leave. This was last October for those of you keeping track. Anyway, we didn't do much, but I totally and thoroughly enjoyed not going to work AND being able to spend family time together. Usually it's me and the girls or Bill and the girls. The only missing part was Stacey since she works most of the weekend and plays with her friends the rest of the time.

Saturday we got up late, showered, and went up to Ben Lomand for a friends birthday party for their one year old. The girls had a great time as there were several kids there for them to play with. Sam was enthralled with their dogs, and just sat in front of the sliding glass door forever watching them, "talking" to them, and patting the window as if sher were petting them. Apparently we really need to get another dog. But oh, do I want to housebreak one at this time?

Riley otoh, had a great time being right in the center of all the action. She had a great time playing with the other kids, and of course the new toys. She loved the board with all the different hooks and latches on it - I guess I'm going to have to try and find one of those.

That night we went to my brothers for haircut night - it's an event that takes place every 5 weeks with a long history I won't get into here. Anyway, a bunch of family and friends get together, we have a potluck (in the summer we usually BBQ), and about 75% of the people get their hair cut.

They have a little above ground pool that stands about 3 1/2 feet high, and is about 8 ft in diameter that most of the kids were having fun playing in. Samantha walked right over and started trying to figure out how to get in. She reached up to the lip, grabbed on and pulled herself part way up, they used her feet to "walk" up the side a little more. If she could have figured out how to get up and over, she would have been in the pool. Riley just kept reaching for the top and laughing when water would splash over. Since they were both so enthralled, we stripped them down and held them in the pool where they proceeded to kick, splash, laugh, and have a great time. Riley even put her face in the water repeatedly coming up laughing every time. Hopefully this means I'll have a couple of swimmers on my hands.

Sunday we went to Home Depot, got some blinds for the girls room and a shelf with the illusion that we will make their room more conducive for sleeping. This week we'll have to set up the extra crib in there and try it out. We also got another mini blind for the kitchen, a couple of portable ac units, and scouted out some area rugs.

After that, we went to our friends Rich and Angelica's. They were having a garage sale, and we scored some useful stuff, had a BBQ, and then headed home with the girls.

All in all it was a good weekend. Two more to go - yeah!!!

Saturday, July 16, 2005

Woo hoo

A rare occurrance, but I got an "A" day at work. What this means in laymen terms is that our unit was overstaffed, so they didn't need me at work last night. That means that I got to stay home (and start my vacation a little earlier) and still get paid. What a deal!

Thursday, July 14, 2005

More fun...

I'm off to the Farmers Market with the girls. Mmmmmmm, lemon crepes and pluots here we come.

I'm a fun mom, really, I am.

Last night at work I was mercilessly teased because I don't allow my children to watch hours and hours of mindless tv, put them in cloth diapers, and generally try to feed them an organic, healthy diet.

The tv thing - they do get to watch, but I admit I do limit it to less than an hour a day (sometimes none) of Baby Einstein, sign language DVD, or Plaza Sesamo (Spanish Sesame Street.) The girls don't mind, and they seem to really enjoy these shows. They are however, developing a real sense of humor, love of exploration (they've figured out how to break out of their play area on a regular basis), and a certain creativity in problem solving that you just don't get from spending hours in front of the television.

As for the diapers - that just makes good sense. We have the kind that go on just like the disposables, they're cheaper in the long run, AND best of all, my girls don't get diaper rashes from wearing them like they do with the gel filled disposables.

Lastly, the diet. I think it just makes good sense to start them off right, but I have no illusions that they will remain preservative, nitrate, sugar free their entire lives. I just want to give them a basis to fall back on.

Anyway, they kept taunting me with a very sarcastic "Let's go play at the Fishers house today - it's so fun." WELL I'M TELLING YOU NOW, it is fun. The girls laugh, giggle, and play every day. So there, all you skeptics out there.

Oh my...

a Mennonite just walked by my window. Now that's not something you see everyday.

Ant invasion 2005

Ok, what is with the major ant invasion lately? We can't seem to keep them out of our house. They keep finding new and better ways to get in despite the fact that Bill has waged war on them both inside and out.

This morning they found a new way into the house under the kitchen sink and up through the deteriorating grout. A professor of Bill's once told him there were 3 ways to kill an ant:

1. Slow it's metabolic functions (starve it)
2. Denature its enzymes (poison it)
3 Reduce it's complexity (squash it)

I chose options 2 and 3 as #1 just wouldn't happen in this house. Just with the babies alone, there's too much food around to slow anyones metabolic functions. Then there's me and Bill.

Any other ideas on preventing the little pests from getting into the house would be greatly appreciated.

Radiation Oncology

Went with my sister to see a radiation oncologist today. Such a vague science. He had a lot of good reasons for why she should do radiation therapy, but she had just as many for why she shouldn't. On the one hand, it's good to know that her case isn't so compelling that they could say, "Yes, you absolutely should do radiation", but on the other hand it would make the decision oh so much easier. Right now they strongly recommend it, but said they would respect her wishes if she opted not to do it.

Realizing that she's not thinking clearly right now due to the chemotherapy, she is postponing making a decision until she's done. They can't do radiation anyway until that time, so best to wait.

Compact Parking

Ok, pet peeve number 3296. I know it's an old one and there are people who fall on both sides of the issue, but seriously people, if there are many, many open spots marked for you, use them. The reason I'm ranting about this now? Let me tell you about work. We have a limited number of spots where larger cars can park. The lot is 75% compact, and they are compact. There are issues every week with someones car (either their own or someone elses) getting scratched, dinged, etc. because of the compactness of the spots AND because 2/3's of those spots are bound on on side or the other by a cement pole. Anyway, it irritates the heck out of me when they occupy the few spots left for larger vehicles (don't tell me to get a smaller, more gas efficient car - I like my hog.) The topper was this weekend. In addition to the compact spots there are also several motorcycle only spots. While trying to park last night, I was a little more than irritated to find a motorcycle in a large car spot when ALL the motorcycle only spots were available. Now I've ridden a bike, and I would like to say that I would never do that. I wanted to leave a nasty note on the bike, but hey, I'm just not that kind of person.

Ok, rant over. Sorry for the brief interuption of this blog.

Not much to blog

Up all night working - long night, but good. The baby I was working with this week was/is very, very sick, but getting better. Kind of reminds me why I do this. I was forgetting that after my last couple of weeks at work. That's all.

Dentists aren't all that bad

Seriously people, if you need a dentist I highly recommend Dr. De La Paz. I went to see her this morning for a cleaning (long overdue) and she was great. The office is very clean and not dentist smelling/looking at all. It's very private. I never see another person while I'm there as they have seperate waiting rooms, they don't overbook, so you don't have to wait when you arrive. She's very gentle, but thorough and most importantly she uses technology. Her xrays are all done digitally so they are available instantly, she uses lasers and ultrasonic technology. I don't usually recommend people, but I am very impressed with her AND her office staff. They are all very professional, but also very nice. If you're interested, she has two offices, one in Palo Alto and one in Sunnyvale. (650) 323-2600 or (408)530-0000

And in case you're curious, no, I'm not getting a kickback or free dental work for this.

There's stubborn, and then there's subtley stubborn.

What happens when you have one stubborn child? Seriously folks, what happens? I wouldn't know as I have two stubborn children. One just happens to be more of the stealth variety. Today for instance, I was eating crackers, Samantha wanted some, so she came up to me and very nicely made the signs for eat and more (good compound thinking for this age). I happily gave her a cracker at which point Riley began to howl and reach for a cracker. I told her she had to make the sign for it (she knows how), but she shook her head at me, threw herself on the floor, and howled. Needless to say, she did not get any. This went on for 1/2 an hour with a few pauses. I soon found out what those pauses were for. You see, her sister, who is just as stubborn, just not always as noticeable, was asking for more on a regular basis, one for her and you guessed it, one for her sister. At least she's using it for good and not evil.

OMG, the most brain dead fun you can have in 5 minutes

I don't know how long this ad will remain on Yahoo's website, but you've got to try it out. Go to Yahoo, and click on the guy sitting in the chair in the Saturn ad, drag him, let go, and watch him fly. Ok, I know it's lame, but for some reason it was so much fun.

The "miracle" of life continues

Last night was yet another one of those nights at work. Tonights blog is dedicated to Tyler. I hope I helped you little one, in your brief visit to our existence and that your parents will be able to believe that there was nothing they could have done differently for you, their sweet boy. You are such a beautiful little soul, and I know that you are looking out for them. Please bring them peace. There's not much more I can say without breaking confidentiality, so when you read this take a moment to send a loving thought to Tyler who is no longer suffering, and to his parents who I fear will suffer for the rest of their lives.

Friday, the worst day of the week.

Why is it the worst day? Because that's the day I have to try to squeeze in a little extra sleep so I can leave my girls to go work all night, and for the subsequent one or two nights (depends on the weekend.) I will never like Fridays again until I can stop working this schedule. Aaaarrrrgggghhhhh!

As for the girls, entertaining as usual. Sammi picked up her Snoopy and was hugging it and walking around with it. When she noticed Riley didn't have one, she went and found Riley's, took it to her and tried to get her to hug Snoopy too. Sadly Riley was involved with other things. Not to be deterred, Sam just hugged both Snoopys. Go Sam.
