Half Asian

I don't remember why, but while we were in the car I asked S. what her race is. She said American. I pointed out the R. is Asian, and therefore she is half Asian. She asked me which half!

I've Seen It A Thousand Times

And it it still makes me choke up.


It actually came out before I had kids; back in the day when I was
more in to grown up movies. The first time I saw it we started the
dvd and th revving of the engine sort of startled me, and left me
thinking I wouldn't like the movie.

But by the end I was hooked.

I truly believe that Cars is Pixars greatest film. The message and
the story are beautifully done. Its a fabulous illustration of
friendship and integrity.

Last night I saw it again and down came the tears.

Taken Over and Thrown Out

Well, we got bought out back in Feb. Things started to change immediately. They went from cold to cold hearted and now they've progressed to freezing us out. Not only have they withheld coffee cups for over a week, but they've cleaned out the medicine cabinet. The only thing left is some expired tylenol and some bandaids.

Place and Order

I gotta write a post about place and order. Its Z's hallmark.

Dance Day Saturday - And Friends!

Dance class today. Both classes are prepping for the big recital next month. They are doing great.

We went to Rainbow Park this afternoon and met Y and Y :-) I didn't realize just how much S loves Y. They are peas in a pod. The kids ran and played and laughed. It was a picture perfect afternoon. And for me, it was a guilty pleasure. I spent two hours getting to know M better and she is positively a delight.

Dinner at El Amigo, shopping at Zad. It was a good day.

Pajama Day

It was Pajama Day at school for S. She chose to wear her blue Disney Princess PJs that Eileen and family gave her for Christmas (or maybe it was her birthday!). I found her Disney Princess blanket and pillow that she used when she was in Pre-K and I also sent a bedroll. She took her new Ruby Bridges book to share. She had a great day. She looked adorable running in to school schlepping her backpack and blankets. I was very happy she had a good day.

Clutter, I gotta get rid of the clutter in my house...

Our Lady of Pancakes

So, I'm a kinda busy person. I work full time and run my household pretty much myself. So when I want time with friends I gotta squeeze it in. Sometimes on Saturday mornings I meet my bff for breakfast at Our Lady of Pancakes (aka the Ihop next to the 40 ft steel statue of
Our Lady of Peace). NOTETOSELF: take a photo of th statue.

Anyway, we met at 6:30. Its fun. I noticed, though, that my demeanor wasn't so upbeat. I noticed this the other day when I was on the phone with bff. I think, overall, even though I am no longer weeping through my days, I clearly have work to do on the depression front.

Blogged from my Blackberry while S is in dance class. SWEET!

Grown Up Movies

Tonight is a good night for Z. He and Baba are watching a grown up movie together in the front room. As they watch I can hear them talking about the characters, the actors and what's happening on the screen. Rao is teaching Z. that Robert DiNero is one of the stars of the movie. They are watching Ronin.

The bad guys are running away! Did you see how they are driving the car?

Where's the good guy - going after the bad guy, right?
