after the zoo, which by the way, was another classic example of "just because the sun cant see you etc" because it was cloudy all day but i definitely got sunburned, we went over to lauras house for dinner. joe and william and sydney were there. we had deep fried turkey, which was a new experience, with all kinds of veggies etc etc. it was so yummy! sydney is like a foot taller than when i saw her last. she is a middle schooler now and i am proud to say, she reads like me. walks around reading. reads while she eats. reads while playing video games. ok she doesnt really do that but i think we are secretly twins separated at birth or something. joe took a family picture with everybody in it - just ignore my moms pants. long story.

Sunday we went to church in the morning with my family. we did not get to hear the new pastor and i was kinda disappointed about that. i did learn that one bushel of wheat can produce 50 some odd bushels per acre. so that was exciting.
after lunch missy (aka mindy) came over and we went to the mall. we walked around for a little bit then went to jugo juice aka jamba juice aka zumo juice and got some orange carrot juice. yummy! we went out to trinity and saw all the construction on the fine arts wing - it is gonna be pretty sweet. we went to her house and i got to see her parents again... we grabbed the brian regan "i walked on the moon" dvd and watched it at my parents house. he is one funny guy!!! (say 8! say 8!)
after she left we all went to kobes for mothers day dinner. YUM! except i got sick afterwards. but it was good while it lasted. heehee. we took a mothers day picture (bryce was at work) in the backyard. joe and laura and william came over and bryce came over and we played guitar (we in the broadest sense of the word - i watched of course) and watched mitch hedburg on youtube and just hung out. it was fun. bryce has written some hilarious songs about his apartment and working at dillons and other such nonsense. when he finally posts those on youtube i will give the link out. you will laugh. hard.

really, i am just waiting for kelly clarkson's new cd and tour. thats it. american idol couldve stopped there for all i care.
babs last night was verrrrry disappointing i am sorry to say. CORRECTION: it was bette midler, which is worse. babs, if you are out there, sorry for slandering you.
the beatles tribute was odd.
the group songs were pretty good - loooooved the take 6 arrangement for the guys.
ford commercials - not as good as the ones last year!!!!
funniest part: during the golden idol awards... replaying the bit about the high heels and ryan says simon stay out of my closet and simon says (hee hee simon says) well then come out!
classic american idol banter. loved it.
36 hours and we will be en route to kansas...
ceci is going to have baby javi while we are gone and that means it will be forever until i get to meet him.
cosmo and that other hamster are staying with dan, emily and sara. i hope that new one doesnt bite sara (or dan or emily but especially sara).

this morning, he just went a step too far.
i was blearly-eyed, stumbling around the kitchen trying to make toast and coffee and warm up some egg casserole when zzzt. all the kitchen small electrics stop working. jeremy gets out of bed (side note - every week day i get out of bed at least 30 minutes before him and eat breakfast. if you know either of us at all, you will know that this is a BIG DEAL) and comes and fixes it so at least the coffee pot and toaster work. i attempted to warm up my casserole on the stove (which was completely unsuccessful) and ate my toast. at least the coffee pot was fixed. thats all im saying.

we went with the slovaceks "after church." i say that because although that was the original plan, we did not actually make it to church. we drove out to zuma around lunch time. it was great becasue of the marine layer in that there were very few other people there (except for the family reunion right next to us - why does that always happen?) the sun played peekaboo behind clouds all day but we all put our earbuds in, read magazines (meaghan and lottie: glamour and martha stewart living, al and jeremy: handgun and hunting magazines), watch the dolphins and seals, and eat.
but it was significantly warmer than last time we were at the beach with al and lottie so maybe next time we will be able to actually wear just our swim suits and no blankets. :)

this will replace my semi-weekly emails - so you guys can check here (or maybe subscribe - i am not sure how it works yet) every so often and i promise to keep posting.
last weekend was really busy. friday after work i went to xi with emily and (of course) had fun. jeremy met us there and he and i went to the pet store to buy hamster food for cosmo. while we were there, i fell in love. with a little grey ball of fur. saturday jeremy went back out there and brought her (and a new huge cage) home with us. so now cosmo has an as-yet-unnamed sister.
we also went to best buy and i fianlly got a computer to replace the one that just stopped working a while back. so that is SUPER exciting.
after shopping we met up with al and lottie for dinner then went to arianna's art show. she had some amazing photographs. some of the other kids had some cool stuff too, others really not so much.
saturday was kinda a normal at hoe sort of day. we played with the new baby hamster and she bit me. i may have cried. (that hurt!!!)
sunday was one of the busiest, most mosaic-oriented days we have had out here so far. we had to be at beverly hills high school at 8 because we were directing. service got over around 1 and we grabbed some lunch and headed over to the mayan club to stage manage the music festival awaken humanity was holdin to raise money for missions work. we were there until after 11 (i had already taken an hour nap in the green room) and rode in complete blessed silence the whole way home. i was using ear plugs (how old does that mke me sound? but at least i didnt have custon molded ear plugs zac) but i had a daging headache from all the music. and it was good music too but just alot and really loud. the artists were for the most part very fun to work with (not to name names, but daniel bedingfield was not one of those - jerkface). project 86, christafari, and several of the unsigned bands were all totally cool. overall, it was a great experience.
paj and raj were back this week. at least they didnt try to talk to me then ignore me after i left the comfort of my itunes and computer games. :)
p.s. if anyone has name ideas let me know! :)
