Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

I will try to add more videos and pics later, but it is quite difficult for me! :) I don't know how some people update so much with pictures. I only download pictures onto my computer like once a month. (ok, so actually, I get Jason to do it.)

We tried finishing up King Kong tonight, but once again Jason fell asleep and I was scared by all the bugs and had to turn it off again. Maybe tomorrow we'll be able to finish it. Oh man, we're old fogies..can't even finish one dang movie!

I got my cell phone bill for this month today and I'm pretty upset at myself. My bill is about $300! Oh geez, I need to stay off my stinkin' phone. Who the heck am I talking to? I never think about minutes and use my phone like I have unlimited minutes or something. I am so dumb! Jason was like, "Ooh Tyler, mommy is taking money away from your college fund." But actually, he's cool. He is not the type to get mad about something like that. Shoot...he better not! I have many incidences that I could bring up where he practically flushed our money down the toilet. Anyways, he doesn't have to get mad at me about this because I am plenty annoyed at myself! But the question is: Will it change me?

This morning, I cried in my car driving to work. Well, when I left home this morning, Tyler was still sleeping so I didn't give him a proper good bye of hugs and kisses and smiles. So on my way to work, I really missed him! I took his wallet size picture with Santa Claus out and cried while listening to Goodbye Lover by James Blunt. And then, I told myself I am stupid for even considering working next year. Because I shouldn't care if it takes us another year to buy a house. I should be thinking more about Tyler, who will want his mommy at home. Anyways, about the same time when James Blunt sang, "I am hollow, baby," I felt his pain.

Jason and I were watching King Kong right now but Jason fell asleep and I was too scared to watch it by myself. How come nobody told me it was scary?! I thought King Kong was suppose to be a romantic love story?! I know I will be seeing "native people" in my sleep so I am scared to go to bed!

I'm going back and forth on this teaching next year business. One minute, I'm sure I want to stay home. The next minute, I am sure I want to work. (IF I could find someone I trust 100% to take care of Tyler, that is.) Well, since I don't know of anyone that could take care of Tyler and I refuse to put him in day care until he is able to talk (so he could tell me if someone mistreats him), I guess I'm staying home. I know I whine about my job and count down the days to my vacations. But, I still want to work. Well, we'll see what happens.

Hope you have a great week!

Video Hosting - Upload Video - Photo Sharing

Just testing. This isn't the most interesting video, but it's one of two that I have. Just seeing if this will work. Thanks Susan for the idea..You're my inspiration!

OK, since the first one is a little boring, I decided to share the ONLY other video clip that I have...taken just seconds before the one you just saw. It's kind of embarrassing. I guess this clip will only be funny to those who know me! The guy you hear is Rich, my brother.

Poor Tyler, falling while his mommy tries to record for the first time! :)

Hello there! This is Tyler. Here are some things my family and I've been doing lately.

We went to a wedding. My mom LOVES going to weddings. She always cries.

I learned to play this cool game.

We went bowling. As you can see, my mom kicked some serious ass!

At the arcade, my daddy taught me how to ride a car. I was so good, two older boys were amazed!

It's really hard for my parents to keep up with me these days because I'm walking all over the place!

We went out to eat a couple of times and they only let me eat this baby food.

I went to Chuck E Cheese for the first time.

I had a fun time!

Went on a carousel.

I got my picture in OK! Magazine. Drank my champagne..just kidding!

Hung out with my grandma.

Went to my Auntie Claudia and Uncle David's place for a BBQ.

My Auntie Claudia is 8 months pregnant here. I can't wait for my cousin to come!

They seriously have the best backyard!

Picked my grandpa up from the airport.

Ate at Korean Plaza. That is Uncle Rich's finger. I don't know what he is doing.

Visited the doctor. I was scared but my daddy was there to protect me.

Went to the mall.

I had to strut my stuff in front of the ladies.

Went to the park. My mom was too busy taking this picture and I ended up putting some sand in my mouth!

Visited my great grandma. She wouldn't take her hands off me, so I had to fight her off! Ah-ya!

Went to the California Science Center. My mom wanted to watch the 3D movie and forced everyone else to go!

My Uncle Rich pulled me around in this wagon and we ran into a friend.

My favorite of all was hanging out at Third Street.

My daddy and I listened to some cool music. Jazz is my favorite.

My mom is sad to go back to work tomorrow. When she misses me, she will think about me in my Superman cape (thanks Alice!) and smile.

If I'm trying to save money and I order only a $5 appetizer and you order a $15 entree and $5 dessert, is it really fair for us to split the bill in half?

(I'm not talking about dining with friends and family here, but if you were eating with a co-worker because of work, like you had to share a lunch because you were at a conference together. This happened to me the other day. I didn't want to be petty over money so I agreed when my co-wroker said "it would be easier to split the bill," but now that I think about it, I should have said something, maybe as a joke or something. But I think it was pretty dumb of her to suggest that we split when she obviously knew she had spent more money.) Anyways, just a thought.

I really miss Jason. It's weird not having him next to me. Missing him makes me think about the first time we met and when we fell in love. It's hard to explain, but it felt like one perfect dream. Everything around us would fad away. All I could see is his smile. My heart would actually ache sometimes. I know that if, during this time, Jason asked me to move with him to another country, I would have- without hesitation. The first two months of us knowing each other, I felt emotions I am sure I will never feel again. That kind of love has changed into something else. Still love, but different. But that's ok. To have felt what I felt for even two months is enough to last a lifetime. I will die knowing that I have loved completely and felt loved completely.

Hello. hello. It is my favorite time of day... lunch time! :) The kids want to stay in here and eat, but I'm like, "Get out! Get out! Get out!" Ok, so I'm not THAT mean, but damn, I need some peace and quiet during the day!

Tomorrow is my last day before Spring Break! Wahoo!! I was talking to a teacher friend yesterday and he told me that he became a teacher for all the breaks. (Talk about honesty! At least I say it's for the kids!) He said that he makes 50,000 and that most his friends make about, on average, 75,000, but that he would rather be a teacher and make less in order to get long breaks and get home by 4:00 everyday. I would have to say that I agree. Teaching pays jack but at least I get some sort of life!

Jason is still in Taiwan. He tells me it is hot and humid but I wish I could visit him. Oh wells, he promised me some trips once Tyler gets older. Let's see if he follows through. :0

The other day, I finally subscribed to satellite radio. Well, I got this 3 month promo deal when we got the Audi so I thought I would try it before the summer. Anyways, after all was said and done, I asked the guy what channel Howard Stern is on and he said with a laugh, "Ma'm Howard Stern is on Sirius, not XM Radio." What?! I thought satellite was satellite! haha...I'm confused!

Jenn got into Kellogg Business School (or is it the school to learn about cereal...ok, not funny, but I had to throw that in there!) SO SO happy for my super smart friend. Did I tell you guys that I met Jenn when we were four. I remember the actual day. She had an ET doll in her hand and she was walking it along her window. Good times.

Well, I miss you all. I wish there was some sort of thing where you could play and see Tyler through the computer. You know, like a time machine, but not really a time machine. haha... Tyler is too cute to put into words, so I wish you could actually "experience" him through the computer. I don't know what I am saying.

Anyways, have a great weekend!

What a day! I just got back home. First, this morning Claudia had her baby shower. It was hosted by the Millers, friends of Claudia and Dave in their beautiful home. (Kelly Miller, the wife, is the gorgeous blond tic tac lady...remember those commercials?) My camera ran out of batteries (yes, what else is new?) so I wasn't able to take, cause it was one of the most beautiful parties I have ever gone to and I would have loved to share with y'all. The cake was so cute! It was definitely better than my own wedding cake!

Then, I went to Alice and John's wedding. (Alice, everything was so nice. I had so much fun at your reception. I don't remember ever laughing so hard at a wedding. I know things are pretty hectic for you right now, but give me a call when you get a chance!)
