I was reading through my blog and realized I never finished talking about our awesome weekend in NJ.
Let's see. Saturday Kim, Kevin and Stephen went to a thing at Stephen's school….a contest I think it was right Kim? So we had Taylor and Liv with us. We drove around Toms River a bit, looking at what's different and what's the same. Drove by our old house of course and it looks the same. Except they tore out all our azalea plants in the front garden and replaced it with some awful, old looking Mary statue. (I'm sure lightning will strike me for that one, but you know me and religion). And they added a cute white fence to the front as well. The houses on either side look the same but there's now a new house on the corner which looks nice. Still think they should have torn down the blue thing next to us being it was SO tiny, but that was up to them….lovely people that they are (said VERY sarcasticly). We also drove down to Island Heights to see the water. Sean and the girls got out of the car but I didn't…it was TOO cold!
After driving around for a bit we took the girls to Friendly's for lunch. They LOVED the ice cream. (Can't find one around here) Then went back to the house. Which we then went to Kohl's with Kim and Kevin because Sean needed new shoes and they were having awesome sales. I forgot just how close to our house that store was in NJ. And it's funny because I didn't go that much when we lived there but now being the store isn't as close I want to go all the time. After Kohl's we went home and had a yummy lasagna for dinner. Then, grabbed some beers and headed on down to the basement to watch Moving Up and the episode my parents and my old house that I grew up in were in. Watched it twice in fact being it aired again and each time got more and more pissed off at the woman that moved into the house. The guys went to bed early (slackers) and Kim and I stayed up late just chatting. It was NICE!
Sunday during the day we didn't do much, or did we? I can't remember the day. Or was it Sunday we went to Kohl's? Sunday night we went to Kristin's house for a Superbowl party and had a blast! Both Sean and I and Kim and Kevin cleaned up on the pools that were going around. Many funny conversations were had that night too. And I got to see Kristin's new baby girl who is gorgeous!!!!! AND I also got to see Kristin's parents…Aunt Janice and Uncle Russell. It was a great night until I decided to mix beer and wine, got home to Kim's house and threw up. That wasn't so fun.
Monday morning we all kind of moped around. That day sucked as it was the day we flew home. We sat around and watched the Disney movie Highschool Musical which was cute. Gotta have Caelie watch that. Then it was time to say goodbye to the girls. I cried of course. It was still a bit early so we went to the Toms River Diner for lunch, trying to postpone the inevitable.
Got to the airport and said our goodbyes and as they pulled away I started sobbing (kind of like I am again now). OMG I MISS YOU GUYS! Thanks for a WONDERFUL weekend and can't wait to see you again!!! Hopefully SOON!
SO, you know that commercial with the 2 guys, one's a Mac computer and one a PC and they're talking about updating the computer to Vista and peripherals and all that?????? Holy crap this is going to take forever! You have to download this upgrade advisor 1st for Vista so it can check out your computer and see what's compatible and what isn't such as software or devices etc. Then if you have stuff not compatible you have to then update it all at the vendors website. I'm now updating Norton otherwise I have to uninstall it and it won't be able to be installed again because it won't work without this upgrade which is taking FOREVER!
We should have just waited to buy a new one once Vista came out like with the laptop! Hindsight is always 20/20!
is what I'm about to do on the kids computer. Wish me luck. Hopefully I'll be back soon.
Take this quiz to find out!
Just when we thought soccer was over….we were WRONG! Not only are the older 2 munchkins in a soccer clinic once a week for the next 3 weeks, but once that's over we were told Tristan's team will still be having practice at least once a week until the end of May (when the season is officially over). Then, the 1st week after school is out is the British Soccer Camp which all 3 kids will be attending. Then, tryouts for the traveling team will be sometime in June and then the traveling season starts up again in July. I don't see a break anywhere in there except for the 2 week break we had for Christmas. And even then that was only 1 week really..the week between Christmas and New Years. Sean and I were talking about how when Caelie gets old enough…and IF they'll have a team for her age (right now they don't) if we'll let her try out or not. Can you imagine? Three kids all on traveling teams?????? HA!
new computer. I'm now at the kids new computer. We got it for them a few months back. It's an HP and it's awesome and we keep it in the den/dining room. I was thinking of keeping this one for myself and giving them the old Dell. It's much faster then the other one. Although, I did just get a new laptop so I mustn't be THAT greedy right?
today and loving it. Haven't done much today but hang around playing with Kieran or playing on the computer. I did get some laundry done so I feel somewhat productive. But other then that it's been a quiet, low key day. Knoxie has even just been laying around which has been nice. But that will change once the older two get home, I'm sure. Caelie has soccer tonight but that's it. Hoping Sean's home in time to take her because it's going to be chilly out on the field tonight.
go and get Knoxie at 10am??? Do I, do I, do I??????? It's been so peaceful here. Yesterday we hung around doing nothing all day. Kieran started throwing up in the morning so any plans of car shopping that we did have went out the window (or down the toilet-lol). So we stayed home all day doing nothing. Kieran and I did try to nap in my room but the phone kept ringing so I got no sleepies. I was exhausted by 5pm last night. We had a quick dinner and then everyone was in bed early.
Kieran's home this morning since he was sick yesterday and we're having a nice quiet morning home. It's nice to not have to clean or go food shopping for a change or have to be anywhere for that matter. Hoping tomorrow I can start my weekly workout at the Y with Dawn. I am psyched about doing that! I'm also psyched because I found out Sam (the mom of one of the kids from Tristan's soccer team) also is a member there. Yay!!!!!
Ok, off to enjoy some time alone with Kieran for another 45 minutes before all hell breaks loose with THE dog.
What a great St. Patty's Day the Spicers had! We all had SO much fun on Saturday night. And it had a great deal to do with the company that was here.
Tammy, Russ and the kids got here a bit after 4 and we hung out on the back porch. A little after 5, Jenn, Sean and Ian got here, but it didn't click with Sean what was going on yet. Even though I hadn't told him they were coming. Soon after that Nelson and his boys got here (from Tristan's soccer team) and then Shannon, Shane and Josh and that's when Sean started figuring it all out. Then people just started arriving. It was awesome!
And the amount of alcohol that was consumed……LOL……wow. All the stuff I bought, plus 4 other families brought some and when I opened our cooler Sat. night after everyone left, there wasn't alot left. I didn't drink that much….I started out with about 3 but then once I started doing the food, I'd open one and then lose it so I was fine all night. Around 10 I remembered I didn't eat all day either so I grabbed a hot dog and that was about it for the day. Best hot dog I've ever had though.
I still have some food left…we ate the 2nd Shephard's Pie last night. The kids and Sean wolfed it down saying it was awesome. My allergies were acting up so I couldn't taste a thing. But how could you go wrong with Shephard's Pie…all it is is ground meat, gravy, veggie and mashed potatoes. The other I had made for the party….well……I had forgotten to bake it and Tammy and Shannon wanted to try it. So I put the oven on and put it in there for 30 minutes. There was alot of commotion going on in the kitchen at the time as everyone was still coming in to eat. I went to take it out of the oven and realized then I had forgotten to take the plastic cover off…..so it was baked in with the pie. LOL EW!
It really was a fun night and I feel blessed by knowing everyone that was there. I love it when something falls together like that. Everyone came that said they would…..everyone I invited actually came too. And I was telling my mom how Jenny H. and Sam brought appetizers without me asking, Tammy and Shannon helped me in the kitchen, how Shane cleaned up the entire back yard for me, how Shane and Russ manned the grill for me and how Becca and her friend cleaned Caelie's room (not sure who cleaned Kieran's but I am grateful) and she said “Wow, you have some great friends there” and she's right. Everyone that was here Sat. night are good people. I feel like a better person just for knowing them all. And now that I've had my 1st official BBQ, this feels like home. Won't be doing that again for a while with everyone at the same time……but it was nice to have people yesterday tell me what a great time they had Sat. night. Going to see them all again next Sat. at Kieran's BDay party at CEC.
