6. boo at the LA zoo--omg... not cool that it was freaking 95 outside! can you say HOT! lucklily, i knew it would be hot so i did not dress diego up in his bat suit. he would have roasted! but he did have nice time checking out the gorillas. they had cool stuff set up around the zoo-i loved the carving stations!
5. tomorrow i plan on passing out halloween pencils to my kids--just for fun! diego had a great time playing with them.

it's been a busy week!!! last week we had a party on friday, a wedding in fresno on sat, drive back home on sun, cesar left to canada on mon--he's still gone. ugh... and the monkey boy learned how to climb out of his crib!!! ugh! overall i've had very little sleep and feel like a single parent... ugh!!!
the party on friday was fun! lots of silly people! they were all of cesar's coworkers-his people. diego had a great time running and just watching everything go on around him. he loves people. he tried to eat everyone's food--ah... my boy loves to eat! oh yeah, there was a dancing scull too... scary!
fresno-gosh it's so darn far! omg... too many crazy drives and too many "close calls." i really hate making that trek! but really, the wedding was beautiful!!! my cousin tina has finally married her prince. that is a whole long drama but know that hector is a great man. i'm so happy she made a match. i'm so happy for her!
gosh... seeing people i grew up with was pretty crazy. they're adults now! lol! how did that happen? kids i've known since wow... since we lived on grant street in fresno--since my parents were married... yeah, that long ago! they're all still around and hanging out with my brothers--still! it was so nice to see them. i've got to find old pictures at my mom's and compare them to now. that would be a great scrap layout!
i have to tell ya... my dress... the pretty cream and black dress here (i'm on the far right) was a whole 99 cents! LOL!!! for real! i love to power shop!
my goodness... these cousin's of mine are growing up sooo fast! i can't believe how old they're getting--- aren't they cute!?! i should clarify--they're the children of cousins... diego's cousins.
spent some quality time with the nephews on sunday. i got them all matching t shirts for halloween. none of the 50 pictures of them came out clearly--i guess with 5 boys, someone would always be moving. they had a blast hanging out together! here's eddie, joey, isaac, miah and diego... wow... say that 5 times fast!
ces won't be home until friday now so i'm hoping to get some scrappin' time in. i can't find my mojo--maybe tomorrow i need to look at some challenges and see what i can come up with. limited time to really enjoy my blogs really affects me. oh well... we'll see what i can come up with! happy witching hour!

a big thanks to lefa for the GREAT mini alpha's for this project! i couldn't have done it without them! i had an idea--didn't quiet turn out the way i planned it but it's okay. i like what i ended up creating. it's just a little something before i really have a chance to "get into halloween."

hee hee hee--that's line i image when i took the "teacher look" photo. i've been busy but finally finding my way. scrapped this a week or so ago but just got to posting it. i just made a cute halloween sign i plan to post tomorrow but it needs to dry right now.
i'm finally better--nasty bug in the house. diego still has a day care cold. poor thing. he's almost off the sippy right now. almost there. still needs one at home for his nap (but not at school) and for bed time. i wanted to start getting him in his bed but he woke up at 6 this am. and then fell asleep in the stroller while shopping for his birthday stuff. ugh! so no big boy bed nap today. bed time will still be in the crib for awhile. i'm hoping by dec we'll be in the big bed for good.
shesh... i've been up since 6. it's now 11. i'm tired.

and... that leads to my 1st day of university classes too! wow... it just occured to me, when the Dr. I said, "welcome to graduate school" that YES, i am in grad school now! omg... i've taken many classes in the past but they're all credentialing classes so technically they're 5th year classes and not grad school. they do not lead to a degree--a credential is not a degree. even if you have two like i do; they're still not a degree. lol! but now, yes, now, i am in grad school.
diego--doing great in daycare! he likes going. he seems to enjoy the kids. he's eating well, LOL-like there would be any question. i'm happy for him!

well, the week has been so crazy! and it's only tuesday. i made a final choice on daycare. diego and i have been visiting daily so he gets used to the place. i like it. he seems happy to be with the other kids. of course, you know, diego will be full time but full time for us is not that full. i'll be home by 4 everyday but wed--i have classes that night.
transcrips, the thorn in my side... i went to too many colleges! LOL! no, not really but it seems there are transcrips for thousands of places. i'm down to my final last two requests. i've spent a good pretty penny on them too. the prices vary so much from school to school. rat bastards!
enrolled in school. i'm so excited about that! i miss being and feeling "smart." of course the whole application process is so silly. it's just a formality really. i submitted my paperwork yesterday and now, yes, a whole 24 hours later, i'm enrolled. yeah... lol!
i need to head over to see dr. saul and get some paperwork filled out for diego's daycare. i also still need to get a TB test. i'm so sick of doing those!
i am so tired... maybe i'll try to take a nap.

so i got a job! i'm thrilled! it's been a journey really... 1st one i was offered but turned it down--something about the fit (money...LOL!) didn't feel right. the 2nd, i didn't get the job but this certain district never hires from the school i went too. and the 3rd... took forever! i mean, forever! but, the offer was a great fit and i'm thrilled! i'll be teaching middle school SDC/RSP--what does all that mean? Special Ed.
i'm hanging out with my neigbors cricut--ugh! i am so in love with this stupid thing! hee hee hee... i borrowed it to make the invites for diego's b day but now i want one. of course, you know she has two so this is the "extra" one. she just got the cricut expressions--it's HUGE! and she is selling this one but is waiting for a friend to say yes or no. i'm next on the waiting list. lol! i have the indie art cartrige right now and i love it! i'm making a mini out of some of the die cuts.

but, while cleaning... i found three sets of chipboard monograms and made a quick mini for myself. i can't wait for FALL. i did all four letters but didn't feel like getting them all uploaded.
i know somewhere there are three mini's started of diego's baptism that i misplaced. i'm sure they'll turn up soon.
