Fall Break - Disneyland!

During our Fall Break, we decided to go to Disneyland for a day. Yes... ONE DAY! We drove down on Sunday and when we arrived, we hung out with our good friends the Wyrsch Family. Downtown Disney was a must and had a blast! Good shoppes and good company kept us busy! We saw many friends from Ripon there and we knew more were on the way!

Monday morning, bright and early, we were off to enjoy the park. We hit all the major rides first thing in the morning, then we just kept going! We finally connected with Caleb, Brooke & Dylan. More rides and fun!

After a late lunch, we went to California Adventure... WE LOVE THAT PARK! We ran up and down riding all the best rides possible, and we even saw the Aladdin theater performance.

We hopped back to Disney to finish our great day. Lots of "just one more ride" and at 9pm with sad goodbyes, we were off to drive home. That was THE LONGEST drive home but worth it! Can't wait for the next adventure!

What's wrong?

Well, let me tell you!

About 2 1/2 weeks ago I got really sick with double ear infection and sinus infection. After antibiotics and lots of sleep, I thought I got over being sick. WELL... My ears feel like they are going to pop out of my head from all the pressure building inside...not a good feeling. After being told by many people to call the doctor again, I finally did. Since Kaiser has this thing about letting people actually see the doctor, I had a phone appointment with my doctor. I have a hard time understanding him face-to-face, so this call was pretty interesting... he said "blah, blah, blah.... yeah?" and I answered... "yes"! NO IDEA WHAT HE WAS SAYING! I finally got my point across on how I was feeling and ended up with a prescription and you should "blah, blah, blah"! "prescription will be ready in 30 minutes", he said. Knowing well it wouldn't be, I waited until 8:00pm and guess what? IT WAS NOT READY! Had to wait another 30 minutes to be ready. What's the point of them "calling it in" when you still have to "check in" and then they fill your prescription up? UGH!

Running?! Really?!

OK, so the plan was to first post pictures of my vacation and my kids birthday party... but... until I get all my pictures in order, I decided to add my second post. So here it is!


Yes people.... I am running (trying to!). It all started with a co-worker and that is all she talked about.... run, run, run. Then, the boss man got involved and another co-worker and so as people were joining on the bandwagon, I was opposed to it, until I gave in and gave it a try. I HATE running! I feel like I am going to DIE! BUT.... as time is passing and the more time I spend out and about with the two different groups I involved myself with, I am starting to get better but still not LOVING IT! I have decided that my first official run will be the Modesto Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving day. I am excited and I have to say, with my darling daughter at my side, things seem so much better and easier. She pushes me to go faster and finish. She beats me every time, so I need to get better so I can pass her up!!! This is turning out to be a great mother-daughter bonding time. We have fun running together and she hates when "we" have to skip anything! So the goal is to run the Modesto half or full marathon in March. I hope we can do it!

Hello Blog World!

For many years, friends and families have shared their lives through the blog world and I have enjoyed reading them and getting to know them a little more through each post. I have now decided that Facebook can no longer provide me with the space I need for me to share what I have to say, and I have people that shouldn't be reading what I have to post. So The Blog world it is! Please forgive me if I say something that might offend you but I will be as honest and will share what I believe it is true in my mind and heart!
So here it is.... my first post!
