Tonight we celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary at Fred 62, a diner in Los Feliz. Kids get a menu coloring book and the three of us worked on it while waiting for the food.

Here's Theron at the library. We like to walk over on Saturdays, it's only 4 blocks away. Recently we checked out The Secret Garden and we're halfway through it now.
Where did the weekend go???

Last night I had magaritas with my friend, Mike, like a real human being. We ate some good appetizers and discussed how we both love Natasha on America's Next Top Model. I can't believe I didn't take our picture but I did snap this picture of a mural during my 40 minute-should have been 10 minute - ride home. The one chicken says "I'm hungry" and the other one one says, "Let's get falafel".
Mike and Erik will be celebrating their 20th anniversary next month! Mike and I (and Joan and Beth) will be celebrating a 40th birthday soon and we talked about that. Actually, a lot of people have been asking me about it and what plans I have. Well, I don't really. It seems like it should be big, but I don't know. When I do think about it I do my face exercises, which means these days I do them everyday. Probably I've been ready for this for a while. I have a bathing suit with a little skirt and everytime I'm in the drugstore I examine the home dermabrasion kits.

This is my contribution for our friend April's baby quilt. Everyone gets a little pack of the fabrics and creates something. There was no theme and I've been wanting to do something 3-D. I wanted the bud to fold up and down for something fun to do.
Ashley went to the doctor finally for his ear infection and found it was worse than he thought - the infection is so advanced he has possibly been sick for a very long time and between that and his wisdom teeth there may be some explanation for why he's been so down for so long. The doctor gave him a potent antibiotic that is guaranteed to kill everything from the neck up.

CSI Echo Park

Theron and I found this nest and two broken eggs on the porch this morning. Then Theron and I had a cyclical discussion about eggs, babies, where are the babies, what about the eggs, and on and on.

Vacation, all we ever wanted...

We are comfortably settled down at the vacation house, otherwise known as Joan and John's home. This vacation was of course planned for the week after my allergy testing that showed I have a 50% chance of being allergic to the following items: eggs, pork, fish, shellfish. To confirm this I am to elimate all four things for 2 weeks and then begin adding them back in and watching for reaction. This will take place next week. Tonight we ate the biggest crab legs we ever imagined possible and we will definitely be eating mussels and the most delicious clam chowder anywhere.
In spite of the biting wind, Theron insisted on getting in the ocean. He's shown here in his new wetsuit. He was doing fine and then he suddenly took a tumble. Ashley rushed in to save him. Theron was fine, he just had sand all over him and in his mouth. Ashley's shoes were soaked, he lost a sock, and his cell phone might be dead. Oh, well. Those things can be fixed.

We feel very good and happy. We're just sad we couldn't coordinate to visit with Joan and her family on either side of our trips.

Last weekend, decorating Easter eggs.

Disaster Week

I don't really want to go into detail, but this last week was definitely a good one for hiding in bed. One bad thing that happened was that the winds knocked out our internet and I spent the rest of the week trying to figure out how in the world I ever got our router to work. I'm still not entirely clear but yesterday we were back up. ! So, back to Theron's world -

Since the last week was a blur all I can really comment on was our very nice weekend, walking around Chinatown and washing our cars. Some little boy in Chinatown grabbed Theron's hand and said "Let's play!" and they had a happy little encounter. How nice to make friends so easily. I appreciate so much the friends I have now, as they get harder to come by once you're out of school.

Theron was a big help with the cars, scrubbing tires and spraying with the hose. He said it was a very important thing for a little boy to do.

Oh, last weekend we saw Grandpa Flip and Grandma Rita and Theron finally got to see the REAL TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES! As Theron would say, it was gweat. Theron got in a lot of "fighting" with Grandpa and there were only minor injuries all around. I can't believe we didn't take any pictures, but maybe I do believe it because Ashley leaving his spongebag at the hotel was the beginning of the bad week.

Anyway, how did it get to be April???

This is Theron choosing to read before school one day, instead of watching cartoons.
