My favorite singer, Phil Collins will be touring the USA with his band Genesis in the fall of this year but he's coming nowhere NEAR Tampa! That just sucks! He'll be at Giants Stadium in NJ……that figures! It is afterall Giants Stadium IN New Jersey. I got so excited this morning when I saw an email from Ticketmaster saying they were coming on tour. That excitement was quickly gone once I saw they're not coming anywhere near Florida.
Hmmmm, they'll be in NJ on Sept. 27th…..I could always make a weekend of it. I did afterall fly all the way to England to see Pink Floyd in concert in '94.
It seems my little man has quite a following of girls at his preschool. Before Christmas one of the moms came up to me telling me her daughter Gabby talks about Kieran all the time. We keep trying to get the kids together after preschool but something keeps coming up. Hopefully soon. The good thing though is that they live in Bridgewater which is right down the street so Gabby will be going to Kindergarten at the same school as Kieran.
Then this morning, I parked next to Catherine and her mom, and as I'm getting out she tells Catherine to stay in the car and whispers to me “My daughter is in love with Kieran. She's always drawing pictures of her and him, calling him King Kieran and herself Princess Catherine, saying they're going to get married one day”. Kieran overheard this and he was SO cute…his cheeks got bright red.
Then, there's this other little girl, Scarlet, who as soon as Kieran walks into the room, if she's there before him, runs right up to him. It's so adorable to watch!
Looks like we've got a ladies man on our hands.
my nail tips that is. Last night, while chasing Knoxie around I broke one. And lo and behold, underneath, my own nail was growing!!!!! So that started the process of me taking the rest of them off and surprisingly my nails look quite good. I kept putting off going to get them filled because I can't justify fake nails. I do this like every 2 years. I go and get tips put on and within a month they're off. It's like for a time period I get caught up in society's idea of everything having to look pretty and perfect so I get my nails done. LOL Seriously, those that know me know I don't wear makeup everyday, could care less what my hair looks like (ie I get hair cuts maybe once a year), etc. But there are some days that I look down at my hands and see the short stubby nails and succumb to society's ideals.
I have this nail stuff that Sean bought me years ago that when I do use it, my nails look awesome. But again that's maintenance on me and that's just not who I am. So, we'll see how long my own nails stay looking good. I give it a week…. if that.
This morning I woke up and said “it's going to be a good, productive day”. I got the kids off to school, came home and while eating breakfast finished anything I had to get done on the computer. Told myself I had until 9:15 to do it. At 9:15 I started my new routine of decluttering a room (following in Tammy's footsteps). I picked the den today. I told myself no computer or phone until I was done with the den. So I put on my Blue October CD and got to work. And stuck to my plan too which felt awesome! I've decided that on mornings I don't have to be anywhere or do anything I'll clean and declutter a room. My next mission is the kitchen. That'll be tomorrow morning.
But more on today: After picking Kieran up from school we headed on down to Chick-fil-A to meet Tammy for lunch. And had a nice relaxing lunch chatting while Kieran played with some other kids in the play place. We just got home not too long ago.
Once the older 2 get home it's homework, then playtime and then Tristan has an extra practice tonite for strikers and goal keepers. It starts at 6 but coach said he doesn't have to be there 'til 6:30 being they're working with the strikers first. So we'll see how the afternoon is going. If it's going well I'll get him there at 6, if not 6:30. He had practice last night too and then will again tomorrow night. Coach is lucky I love soccer. I know I wouldn't do this much for any other sport. Seriously!
The USA men's soccer team is going to be playing Ecuador here at Raymond James Stadium Sunday, March 25th. But, as of now we're not sure if we should buy tickets. If Tristan's soccer team wins this weekend, then they will be playing in the final and it's the weekend of the 24th. No one knows what day or what time exactly. Every soccer fan we know is going but the parents of the team. The tickets are $50 a piece so to buy them and then not be able to go is not worth it….too much. But I know Sean really wants to take Tristan. I'd love to go too but soccer this year is costing us a fortune so I figure if they do go it will be a nice daddy/son day.
Being there is no MLS soccer team here in Tampa we don't get to see much professional soccer here. So I know they boys would love it. I just checked online and they do still have tickets. After Sunday we'll know for sure and if they can go, hoping there are still some tickets left. BUT I'm also hoping Tristan's team makes it to the final.

was a good one. Saturday we did whatever we felt like. And that consisted of running to Target for a few things (had to get a birthday gift for a party Caelie was going to on Sunday, had to get new goalie gloves for Tristan and Tristan also had 2 GC's to use there as well). Then after that we went to the Celtic Festival in Zephyr Park. It was……….OK. Been to better. And the weather was awful…cold and raining. We stayed for about an hour before heading home.
That night I met my friend Kelli near I-4 and we headed out to Orlando together to see our friend Shannon. Halfway there Shannon called…she was throwing up. So we turned around and came back home. We had a quick dinner together and decided to call it a night. It was nice to get to visit with her, but we were both tired and just wanted to go home.
Sunday was a fun day. Kids had CCD in the morning and then around lunch Caelie and I headed down to Brandon to the Ice Sports Forum (where the Tampa Bay Lightning practice) for a birthday party for one of her soccer teammates. We had a great time. Yes, I was out on the ice skating my little butt off. And boy did that bring back many memories. I didn't fall once! But my back is killing me today because Caelie fell alot! The forum is cool though, has a bar and everything. A definite place to go back to.
While we were skating, Tristan had his science invention partner over to work on their project. They are almost DONE!!!! It's due March 13th so they have to get it done by the weekend being we'll be away. I just CANNOT wait for it to be done and handed in!
After skating, Caelie and I headed right to Kieran's TBall game. He looked so cute out there…so little. They only played 1 inning though because the game was supposed to start at 4:30 but for some reason they practiced for over a half hour and before we knew it, after 1 inning another team needed the field. But the kids still had fun and it was nice hanging with Tammy, Russ and Brenden for a bit. We won't be at next weeks game being we'll be in Naples for the Region C Cup but we're looking forward to the game following this coming weekend.
All in all it was a nice, family weekend.
For the past 2-3 weeks my eyes have been watering and itching like cazy. I figured it was just allergies being it's allergy season here (which I am not used to-haven't had my allergies act up this badly since I was little and back in NJ the season for that was fall). I tried using Visine and that lasted maybe 20 minutes to an hour at best. I was trying not to rub them but they ITCH so badly. So today I went to the walk in clinic to get some relief and make sure it's not pink eye. My assumption was confirmed, it's not pink eye just allergies so she gave me a script for eye drops and also a script for Allegra! YAY! I used to have a script for Claritin but it did nothing for me.
So, now my eyes are taken care of. Now just need to make an appointment for my sleeplessness and waking up at least once a night gasping for air. My blood pressure today was 94 over 64. It's normally low for me but not that low. And so many people have commented on how pale my lips have been lately. Need to go make that appointment I think. Make it and get it over with.
Today is a day for doing nothing! Ya hear that? Nothing. There's no where that we have to be, nothing that HAS to get done, etc. And it feels AWESOME! Didn't have to get up early and be here or there. It's been a nice relaxing morning. One we haven't had as a family in a VERY long time. I so cannot wait for an entire weekend of having to do nothing!!!!! That won't be this weekend because tonight I'm off to Orlando with my friend Kelli to see our long lost college buddy Shannon. I can't even remember the last time I saw her. Probably when I was up at PSU Main Campus but that was over 10 years ago. I can't WAIT to see her. Wonder if she still looks the same, acts the same. She sounds the same in her emails so we'll see.
Then tomorrow the older two have CCD in the morning. Then Caelie and I head on down to Brandon for an ice skating birthday party for one of her soccer teammates. And last but not least Kieran has his first TBall game at 4:30.
Today though is for relaxing up until I have to leave. We might go to the Celtic Festival at Zephyr Park, or we might go look at mini vans for me, or we might even go and get Kieran a much needed new bed. But it's SO nice to be able to decide all of this on our own. It's nothing that HAS to be done ya know?
Ok, off to pay some bills that I've been neglecting and then off to do…whatever.
Do you ever feel like that whatever you do, is just sometimes not enough……even though what you DO do is alot? After today I'm done doing the “not enough”. It gets exhausting sometimes.
On another note Sean came home early and I'm so happy. Besides my mom and my bf Kim (and now even The Pub sometimes) he's my sound board on some things. Even though some things I shouldn't tell him because there's no middle ground with him, no grey area….it's all black and white where with me there is some grey. But there are some things really bothering me (not about him) so I know tonite he'll be my soundboard whether I like his answer or not. And most likely, I won't. LOL BUT, he'll be right.
