Back to work :(

I had a nice long weekend. I left work early on Friday to go buy some sunscreen for the kids for daycare. I found some! Friday night we really didn't do much other than go on a bike ride to the park and be outside. I think I spent most of the weekend outside.
Saturday morning Dan took X to a car show while O and I went shopping. I found a couple of pairs of pants and a cute skirt. Then I went to Menards to pick up some hanging baskets and picked the guys up at the car show. X loved it and then we went to Culver's with my sister-in-law, brother-in-law and nephew. They went back to our house to give X his birthday gift. His birthday party is this Saturday and they can't make it. He got Hi Ho Cherry O and he insisted on playing it. It was nap time so he didn't get a chance then. After the kids got up from nap (I watched Sex and the City while they napped) we took them to ILs house. Dan and I went to MOA to meet some friends for dinner and a movie (Star Trek…


I'm sitting her at my desk listening to If I Were a Carpenter that's on my MP3 player. It's a CD I bought when I was in high school. I knew who the Carpenters were because I had listened to some old records that my dad had around. Even listening to it more than 10 years later I still like this CD. Anyhow listening to it brought me a flood of memories from HS. Some memories are so attached to certain music. There are times when I listen to the 90s station on satellite radio and am reminded of a little snipet of things that happened in that time. Like listening to Crazy by Aerosmith reminds me of me and my friend singing it and dancing to it and annoying some of our other friends. But listening to this CD reminded me of a friend I used to have back in early HS. We were such good friends and I don't know what happened. I think he moved away and we never kept in touch. I wonder what ever happened to him, what he's doing. He was such a support for me and bel…

Funny Blog

If you're in need of a laugh everyday check out Cake Wrecks. It features cakes that have gone wrong. From things that are written on it (one said "We are proud of our high school dropout") to ones that are themed (Dora, Star Trek, etc) and really don't look like they're supposed to. I check this blog out almost every day and it makes me chuckle pretty much every time I visit. So check out Cake Wrecks and have a good laugh.

The Lake

We went to the Bakken Museum this past weekend. I'll post some pictures from there in another post. First I wanted to post some pictures of Lake Calhoun and the nice view. We walked across the street to the lake and I took some pictures.

This is the first one I took:

Then I thought I should move my camera a little to the left and get the skyline:

A closer view of the skyline:

Dan and the kids with the skyline behind them:

I've actually have never taken a picture of the skyline before. I guess I never really appreciated it and noticed that it's beautiful across the lake.

Lost - Season Finale

This was the end of the season. Next season, which is the final season will not begin until 2010, so we have almost a year to wait for the final season.

Jack is still trying to get the bomb and follow what Daniel told him to do. Kate is with Sawyer and Juliet and they decide they need to stop Jack. So they get off the sub and head back to the island. As Jack and Sayid are going into Dharma camp, Richard knocks Eloise out and tells them that he is protecting their leader and that they need to do this on their own. So Jack and Sayid are in a Dharma house and it's Horace's house. Sayid decides to put on the Dharma outfit so they can blend in. But Phil spots them and shooting begins. Sayid gets shot and Jack shoots a couple of people. Then in a van comes Hurley and Miles to take them. They head out to the Swan station and they get road blocked by Kate, Sawyer and Juliet.

Jack and Sawyer decide to have a little chat. Sawyer is trying to figure out why he is doing this and…

O's hat

I made a cute little hat for O and I'm also making one for myself. X asked for a hat but not a girly one so I'm in search of a pattern for a boyish hat for him and some boyish yarn. Here are the pictures of it.

I got the pattern from crochet pattern central.

I used some yarn that I already had on hand to make it.

Here she is wearing it last night.

This morning:

She has a big bruise on her cheek that she got from her headboard a few days ago.

My new garden

I had a good Mother's Day. Although I am quite sore from it because we dug out a new garden. I got a trellis from my in-laws for my birthday and we found a place for it. It looked nice in the corner of our fence where we only had a bush we planted last year. So therefore this inspired us to make a new garden. I wanted to put a small bench underneath the trellis and a little path leading up to it. So we got all the things we needed and set to work digging up all the grass that was there. After several hours of work we got it done. Well it's mostly done, we still need to add a few more plants and I want to make a stepping stone with the kids hand prints to put in front of the bench.

This is what it looked like before we dug it up. We had the garden outlined.

This is me in it after we had everything planted and dug up.

Me and the kids.

Lost - 05/06

We are getting close to the season finale. Last night's episode picks up right where we left off.

They show Daniel being shot but this time they show what Jack and Kate were doing. After he gets shot they decide to leave but the Others catch them and bring them forward. Eloise then tells them to put them in her tent. Also one of the Others that captured them is Charles Widmore. Also we find out that Eloise and Charles are together but love is complicated.

Jack is still on board with Daniel's plan, which is to get the bomb and set everything right. Kate is not so sure and thinks that it will kill everyone. Eloise comes into the tent and asks them what they are doing there. She also has Daniel's journal and looks in it and sees the inscription she put there. She says it's her writing but she doesn't remember writing it. Jack tells her what happened and that they need to get the bomb and set everything right. She believes them because she remembers Daniel wh…

Last Night

It was a little odd last night not to have Chuck and Heroes to watch. Medium was 2 hours and it started at 8pm. I have been reading the graphic novels for Heroes and they continue through the summer. It was so nice outside yesterday that we went for a long bike ride and stopped at the park. Other than that we just did laundry and watched some TV.

Tonight I have my Pilates class. Dan told me to pick up a Papa Murphy's pizza to have for dinner so that's probably what we'll be having. The shows I watch on Tuesday nights are Reaper and Fringe. I always miss the first half of Reaper though because my class goes until a little after 7pm so I normally get home close to 7:30pm.

Mother's Day is this weekend. We don't really have anything planned for it. My mom lives in another state, but I did send her a card and gift and I will also call her. We're going to the in-laws Saturday night to give mother-in-law her gift, which we haven't bought yet. Dan says he…
