Does every kid do this?

If you notice I gave him lucky charms cereal. He had a full bowl of cereal. Well like all my kids.

He manages to eat nothing but the marshmallows. Not the actual cereal part, nope just the sweet stuff.

All gone no lucky marshmallows to be seen.

Spooky Cute!

We had some people from work over for a little party. We did pumpkin carving, and the kids wore their costumes. I think everyone had fun. We served spooky worm spaghetti with meatball eyeballs. I made cupcakes and plenty of iced sugar cookies. Yeah sugar all around.

I think everyone had fun. I hope we could do it again next year.

Christmas Wishes! Ida Style

This is just a wish list will the list every come true probably not. But hey one has to wish for Christmas right?

I want to spend a few days at the Hotel Del Coronado. In San Diego, you can go ice skating by the sea. They decorate so beautifully. I hope some day to spend some time there.

I need a makeup case. I have been buying myself make up lately a lot of it. So I need a new place to put all my make in. A new case would do the trick. Better than the beat up old case that holds my make up now. It's on it's last leg.

Yes there it is. I want some one carat diamond earrings. Yes it's not going to happen but I want it anyways.

oh and the mother load. I want another purse. Yes I don't need it but mama needs a new bag.

Where I won't be at too expensive.

I would love to give the gift of a UFC fight to hubby. But that is a big hell no. Not for 750.00 a ticket. I can not afford that. Even if it's our anniversary. Sorry hubby!

Hubby looking for work!

I may have blogged about it. But my honey was getting burnt out at his job. He had been in administration at the hospital for 4 almost 5 years. He was tired and cranky. So he decided he wanted a change. Well changes included him quitting his job. He will still teach the Nursing students and paramedic students. But this really gives him free time to pursue his dream.

He wants to become a flight nurse. Now hubby is getting up in age. So he needs to book it soon, and start training. I am all for it. It's his dream. Who am I to stop him? So he will be studying ICU and Recovery Room. He needs some different experience before he can fly.

But I am happy for him. I hope it works out. :)

In the mean time I will be working like a mad woman. Since the bills don't pay themselves, and I didn't notice a money tree in the back yard.

Oh and admin. gave him a 300.00 gift card to the Marriot hotels for his servitude. I am looking forward to using it.

My job security!

A moment at .36 cracks me up. I know it's not nice to laugh at old people but damn!

Melody Lane

If you are ever bored and traveling through Lancaster,CA. Find this road. I think this particular one is paved over. But the city of Lancaster is adding another one.

I am home!

Not like I was away on some exotic vacation. Nope I was working the last 4 days straight. 12 hour days. I was mentally tired. I would come home and crash out.

Now most people know I am not the computer whiz. I guess I could auto post for the blog. But since I won't even attempt it. My blog will suffer in my absence.

I will get back to blogging soon. In the mean time I am going to bed.

Some Cards to Enjoy!

For my close friends.

For the Anniversary

To all the old groupies, no Mindi not you or Tiburon.

For the Hubby!

For the kids.

Cheap and Easy!

No not me!

It's the new food blog by one of my buddies. She started a blog about recipes on the cheap. Really clever recipes that we all can use to make our dollars stretch. Something most of us can use, since our 401K's are in the dumps.

I hope you can check it out. She will be updating often. You can also suggest some recipes too for your 5 minutes of foodie blog fame.

Have fun saving!

It's the most wonderful time.

The weather I am hoping and praying has finally turned. This morning we decorated pumpkins. I took all the boxes of Halloween decorations down from the barn. I can't wait to start decorating. It was cool enough to open windows. Cool off the stuffy house. Yeah for not turning on the a/c. Saves me some money! Yeah!

Homie's For Life

We were invited to a party with a theme. The party is thrown by the local ambulance department. The same people who will shock you back to life, do CPR, get you out of that accident. Well they chose a Homie Party Theme. Now if you have not seen a Little Homie they are figurines you could get for 50 cents in the bubble gum machines.
So now that my latin-ness is packed into plastic figurines. From which to choose from. You can choose from Papi Chulo, Shygirl, Loco, Puppet. Oh the list goes on and on.

Thankful Thursday

Thanks Tib for the new logo. :)

1. I am thankful that I have 4 jobs now. Yes I still manage to work only 3-4 days a week despite having 4 jobs now. I now do IV infusion, ER, ICU , and other ER.

2. For cooler weather. It still gets in the 90's in the afternoon but the mornings are wonderful. I even shut off my a/c in the am.

3. Finding a pretty dress for the wedding we have coming up. What can I say I like getting dressed up seeing my husband in a suit.

4. When my hubby kisses me bye in the morning while I am still laying in bed. I get to smell his cologne, and fall back to sleep to the smell. mmmmm

Tag your it!

Tiburon threw this tag out on her blog I decided to play along.

Random facts.
1. I am a worry wart. I usually let things get to me. I worry about a lot of stuff. When I was in elementary school, I had an ulcer. It was horrible.

2. I let my kids fight. I know I should always break them up but sometimes I just let them go.

3. I hate my body. I hate what gaining 64 lbs did to it. :(

4. I have so many gray hairs it isn't even funny. I have to color it every 4 - 6 weeks or else I look wicked.

5. I want to punch some of the people at my work some days. I think I could do it and run away really fast.

6. I have a collection of crosses on my stair well. It's my thing. I have received crosses from every where. I love them .

7. I watch UFC way too much to where I know the people's names. It's ridiculous.

Four and Four

I am supposed to go to my picture folder and open the fourth folder and then open the fourth picture and talk about it.
The picture is from my 10th year reunion that I did not attend. I had barely had Nicholas, and my vainess kept me from going since I was sporting a serious baby bulge. But I recieved this picture. In it are Kami, Andy, and Kristy.

The 2 girls were my good friends in elementary school. The boy is who I was suppose to marry when your parents were deciding your futures. LOL
I kissed him once , but that was all. I miss all 3 of those people. Especially the middle one. :)

I tag Belinda, Dani, Sara, Diane, and Rachel.

Halloween in my neighborhood!

Well maybe not that bad. But there is some foreclosed houses here. I blame people not reading their contracts, and 100% financing. For that reason, I will not be able to get as much candy this year. LOL

Too good to be true?

Who knows if this is true considering I got it in a chain mail. But In & Out is celebrating it's 60th anniversary.

In-n-Out's 60th Year Anniversary is Wednesday, October 22nd. All hamburgers will be sold for 25 cents, Cheeseburgers 30 cents, Fries 15 cents, and drinks are 10 cents!!! So mark your calendars!

I really hope this is true I will be a fat cow that day, forget the diet.

Pictures for the Bored!

That would be something I would do.

Ice Ice baby for Mindi. ;)

I so feel like running up to people sometimes punching the crap out of them than running. But than I would lose my job.
