We have decided to move our family out of SF to the ‘burbs. And since now I have no time between the kids and the hubby, job and life, my blog is coming to an end.
Thanks for reading, but more thanks to my friends S, S, P, Y, T, K, C, and P for helping me write such fun stories about the kids. 🙂

My blood pressure has spiked. Bad times. We were worried about that and now the doc wants me to “rest” and take a medication.
Rest. what is that? I don’t rest. Sitting here at home trying to rest had made me restless.
oh god, feb 20th… you seem so damn far away. 100 days and counting.
BH and I are looking to buy our flat here in the Castro. It’s nice. We have a great view of SF and a backyard. It’s fairly large as well.
I am boooooored.

I got an email wondering where I am. (Um, last time I check I was in Colma.) I guess you can’t drop the marriage bombshell without a few explainations.
a few months ago I started dating my high school sweetheart again. BH (which means better half but ironically are also his incials) and I have known each other since birth. Literally. We were neighbors and our moms went into labor 6 days apart from each other.
Anyway, we have been quietly seeing each other. Of course the enveitable happened… I’m pregnant. Actually, I am about five and a half months pregnant. surprise! I am having… a baby. Like with my little guy, I am not finding out the sex. I am due on Feb 20th.
So that is why my blog entries are few and far between. between working, running after the older child (wow, i can say that now), moving (oh yeah, that too.), the computer being sent BACK IN FOR MORE REPAIRS and life in general I am just exhausted.

ok, last summer when I needed a computer, my sister’s firend sold me her macbook. I can say that it has been wonderful to have.
However, Rick jammed his peanut butter sandwich in it after fleet week. Fuckity fuck. So after a week, I now have my computer back.
lesson: never let the three year old near the computer when cranky.
also, I have a little bit of a surprise: I got married yesterday. City Hall, no big deal. I think I will call the better half BH (get it?) Anyway, we have been dating for a bit and we got married.
And now, you may guess why so sudden. 🙂

Fleet week has ended in the city. As much as I enjoyed the show today, I do have to say thank god. It’s hard to have a child of almost four relax and nap in the afternoons after not sleeping well the night before when the Blue Angels are practicing over the city.
Rick loved his day at the fleet week celebration. He jammed to the music, gave high fives to the soldiers, and even pretended to fire his “finger gun”. Question: where did he learn that? He has no toy guns in the house and I only let him watch age appropriate movies? WTF?
Rick loved the stunt plane show. He was jumping up and down laughing and pointing at the planes as they looped and whirled. He really didn’t care too much for the blue angels though, which is honestly surprising. Usually, at least I assumed, that every little boy wants to be the “top gun” sort of plane flyer. Not my Rick though, he liked the stunt planes.
I bet he’s going to love roller coasters. I think it will be great next summer to take him down to Santa Cruz to see the boardwalk. I think he will still be too small for the big roller coaster but I bet he will like to see it. I love the boardwalk. I haven’t been to the boardwalk since I was in college in the mid-90s but the nice thing about it is that I know it hasn’t changed because it’s historical significance.
Anyway, it was a fun day with the military and Rick had fun. And in the end, that’s all that really matters. That, and I got some awesome photos for my photo album.

For the past few (maybe six now?) weeks I have been studying for an exam for my test. The national board exam to be exact. Well, I can tell you that a monkey could pass the exam. Yes, I passed. Maybe now I will have time to blog more.
Today Rick and I played hooky from school and work. We laid out in the sun at golden gate park and watched, for about three hours, the Blue Angels Practice over the city for this weekend’s fleet week here in SF.
My lord, it was LOUD! And Rick loved every minute. So this weekend we are going to the air shows at Fleet Week. Fleet Week is always fun in SF. Cool air shows, big boats, and military propaganda. Yea!
I am off to bed. All that studying made me sleepy. Hahaha.

I broke my tooth yesterday and wound up at the dentist. That in itself is a terrific story to which we’ll will have to tell at a late date. The main point is that is to be made is I broke a tooth and had to go to the dentist.
I hate going to the dentist. I have this lovely joy of being disgusted by all the noises that dentist machines make. They send icicles down one’s back quiet quickly and easily. Chills are not your friends.
I always try to play my ipod when at the dentist. It’s an easy way of trying to distract ones’ self from the whirling and scrapping noises that goes on. However, there are the times when my iPod has a “funny” moment. You know the times in your life when this happens: you get stuck pulling a double shift when you are exhausted and the radio is playing “no sleep ‘till Brooklyn”. Crazy coincidences like that.
Yesterday, when the doc was putting this discussing putty in my mouth to cast a mold for the broken tooth, laying their with her assistant and herself with their hands in my mouth, my iPod shuffled over to a tom waits song.
I stated laughing so hard I almost choked. I held up the iPod when the doc asked what was so funny. I was almost crying I was laughing so hard. The song? “A little drop of poison.”
I better remove that from the shuffle list.

Well, unemployment didn’t last too long for me (obviously) and it’s a good thing too. i was going crazy at home filling out CV’s and making sure that my benefits were extended.
So where I am I going to be working now? In colma. where is colma? it’s the small little “death town” in between Daly City and South San Francisco. If you know the bay area then you know why I called it a death town. the entire town’s money making market is in… funeral and cemeteries. That’s right, the bulk amount of cemeteries in the bay area are in the city of Colma. And I am going to be working at… a mortuary.
cue six feet under music.
I am not really sure what this is going to be like. Usually, I am taking people apart, not putting together to make presentable. and I have to take a licensing exam but that’s no problem as I have always excelled at exams. at least the commute from the Castro will not be so bad and Rick will still have his mom picking him up from school etc. Best of all: no more graveyard shifts (pardon the pun)!!!

Yesterday was my birthday. I am now in the latter half of my 30s. What did I get for my birthday?

I had 201 views on this blog yesterday. most of the views went to the creative writing part. weird.
In case you are wondering where I am, I am in San Louis Obispo. I have only been here once, about 18 years ago, for a wedding.
And now I am here for… a wedding. My older brother is FINALLY tying the knot after 23 years of living in sin.
