Borrrrinnnngggg!

Yesterday was boring. I don’t remember doing anything but the usual (waking up, getting Eenan ready, cleaning, cooking, picking up the kids from school with Mario, then just lazying around here all day). I did make lasagna for lunch though…and I made it right this time! There was enough meat for the very top layer (unlike last time ) LOL. It was SO good! There weren’t even leftovers this time. We all got some (Mario got two huge servings), then Noey came over with her friend Amber and ate some, Big Mario and Ricky had some, then Mary, Mom and John had some. It was SO good! I could so have gone for some leftovers right now *sigh*.

Rejeana gave me a link to a game called The Crimson Room so I spent a while trying to figure it out. It’s too damn cool…I was determined to figure it out even though it took some time. John came home and I told him I figured it out and his mouth dropped…he said one of his classes last year spent the whole year trying to figure it out and he was amazed LOL. If anyone else figures it out, let me know in the comments! I tried figuring out the next two rooms and gave up, got in the shower and when I came back out, Mario had solved them both–using a walkthrough! After seeing the steps though I don’t think I could have passed those other two. Too darn confusing!

Today we woke up, got ready, and dropped Mom off at work. Then we went to see Gramma at the new nursing home she’s at. It’s pretty there. It looks like a huge house. She was so happy to see the boys, because at this place they let the whole family visit, and there’s no limit on visitors. We gave her the Diet Cokes and sugar free candies Mom got her (found out today that she indeed does have diabetes…she got two insulin injections yesterday–so we know I’m screwed and will definetly get diabetes later on). We talked with her and met her “neighbor”–the lady who shares the room with her. She was thrilled to see the boys and Eenan already has a stack of pictures he drew for her to put on her very empty walls. She also wants plants (she dropped hints when she pointed out the pretty mini rose bush the lady next to her has). We’ll hopefully visit her again tomorrow.

We came home, ate lunch, went back for Mom, brought her home since she’d be babysitting the boys for us, picked John up and then we left for the movies. He and his girlfriend’s anniversary was a few days ago so they wanted to see eachother and made plans to go to the movies. We didn’t want to drive all the way back twice, so Mario and I watched a movie too. I finally met his girlfriend, she’s a cutie and they look nice together :). We watched Taxi, which I thought was going to suck but it was pretty damn cool. I laughed so hard I snorted once …and there were people on both sides of us…

We were joking and cracking up on the way home…then Mario made me mad ’cause he wouldn’t stop at the Joy Dollar…we finally have one near by! I’d of gone myself, but the Sentra doesn’t work, I can’t drive the van and John’s car goes crooked because it needs new tires and I’m scared of driving it…blah!

I hope we do something tomorrow. We should go see Gramma again and hopefully go to a Jamaica (festival? fair) they’re having at the church. Goodnight.

Chillin’

Found this link at Renay’s site. I can’t believe people still support that man when he lies to our damn faces. Granted, I wasn’t thrilled with some of the things Kerry’s promising to accomplish in this last and final debate, but I’ll be damned if I’ll be voting for Bush. *cough* But anyway…

I woke up this morning and checked the weather outside like I usually do, but didn’t watch the news. I wake Eenan up, feed him, and get him ready. John gets here and I wake Mario up. I didn’t want to go with Mario to drop Eenan off, but thought ‘eh, whatever’ and got dressed. It was 7:40am…he needs to be in class by 7:45. It’s not even a minute drive to the school so we weren’t worried. I call Mom over to watch Jaylen while we drop the boys off and we pile into the car. And it doesn’t start. Great. We’re completely out of gas. Kept telling the husband yesterday we needed to stop desperately, but did he listen? No.

So we walked. I still had my coffee cup in my hand and left that way…you can tell I don’t walk much in the mornings LOL. It was a nice, overcast morning, so the weather was perfect. Jennifer and Tia Alma saw us so they went around the block and picked John up. We were a block away from the school so we kept going. We joked the 9 blocks to the school. Eenan enjoyed it I think. We decided, if we get a dog, we’ll take Eenan to school waking, if the weather permits, more often. I hadn’t taken a walk with Mario since…back in ’98 when I was pregnant with Eenan LOL. He kept joking that he was gonna pass out :p. Eenan was late to class of course, but we explained what happened to Miss Ortiz and she was understanding.

Later on, it actually started getting chilly and it rained! It hadn’t rained in forever and I did not believe the “cold front” they kept talking about was ever going to come. It’ll probably only last till tomorrow, but it’s been nice. Tommy came over and drove Mario to get some gas in a tank (LOL) and then we filled up the car. And it started. I’d never heard a more beautiful sound. We went and got a few things we needed (paper plates, paper towels, trash bags, milk) at Dollar General and then went around looking for boxes for Mom to start packing her stuff. When we got back, the new neighbor was outside and we chatted for a while. He gave me the devastating news that McDonald’s ran out of the Hello Kitty Happy Meal toys . No wonder I kept getting the darn Beanie Baby ones instead. Oh well. It’s…not really weird, but surprising that we’re talking to a neighbor. We don’t really talk to anyone over here…we wave hello, but that’s about it. We’ve never engaged in a conversation with anyone here…well, except for during our garage sale the last time. It’s nice being all neighborly :p.

I made cookies for Mario and the boys this afternoon, then family came over and they all left to Yadira’s since they thought Big Mario had gone to sleep but he was really just laying in his room. The boys went with Mary so Mario and I stayed here alone. He’d already started a fire for a bar-be-cue so we decided to stay behind. It was nice. Mom came over and then later Big Mario joined us. He brought out some liquor…forgot the name…and Mario tried some LOL. I don’t know how he can drink that stuff. Big Mario brought another bottle out and told me to taste it with just my finger and my tongue got numb where I tasted it . He brought some Sprite out mixed with the stuff and I took a sip and OMG–I got heartburn! I’m so not a liquor person . It was nice and fresh out…it finally feels Autumn-y! I wish we lived where the leaves actually changed colors and it was cool the whole fall, then COLD in winter. It feels like summer all the time over here with the occassional “cool fronts”. I don’t even remember it being cold for long last year :(. But then again, I’ve lived in Texas my whole life and I don’t know if I could survive and actual “winter” somewhere else LOL.

The food was great…Fajita tacos with queso fresco and salsa verde…the heartburn was so worth it . We went to pick Mary and the boys up at Yadira’s, I put Eenan to bed and now here I am. We found out Cookie is indeed a boy…so his name is now Mr. Cookie? We’ve been letting him out of his cage and he’s been running around the house. He loves it. He gets all psycho and starts jumping really high too LOL. He’s too cute. I can’t believe he’s a boy though!

Ok…eyelids feeling heavy. ‘Nite.
