Home sweet Home!

We made it. The move was successful. Havent found anything damaged yet. There is still much to unpack..

Wedsnesday we had A/c vents and ducting cleaned and sterilized for our asthma sufferers, dryer vent cleaned, chimney sweep out.

Yesterday we celebrated our first holiday in our new HOME. The beginning of new memories, and traditions. This is an exciting time.

The kitchen far exceeded my expectations. They said it was state of art. Well let me tell you. I LOVED my experience in it yesterday. Everything cooked to perfection, tons of counter space. Next Thanksgiving it will have double ovens. That will make it even better!

The family is very happy and comfortable here. We made the right choice when we put in an offer on this home. More to come later.. I must get back to unpacking. The boys start school in 3 days.

Today we are enjoying the first rain since we have lived here.

Don’t eat at RODRIGOS

image

They discriminate against people with Life threatening food allergies.

We have been eating there for 15 years. Waaaay back to when they were called Don Jose. And my children were 2 and 4 years old. And have ALWAYS brought in food for kids.

Well tonight we were asked to leave. Oh I did after I gave them a ear full. And my husband vented.

I will NEVER eat there again.

I can’t say what I want to. Because I’m a better person than that. But I will give you a clean version. SCREW YOU RODRIGOS!!

Oh!! And everyone I know will soon know you discriminate against people with special needs/ food allergy children!!

Ok breathe… The children are fed. Now to figure out what my hubby and I will eat.

Thanks for stopping by…

Summer fun on the weekend

We had a great and slightly weird weekend.

It started with going to the Aquarium of the Pacific. The boys and I have been there a few times. My hubby had never been.

We had an awesome time there. We then went home and made reservations to stay in a cabin at a camp ground. This is where it got weird.

We arrived Sunday after looking at some open houses in that area. My camera kept screwing up. Wouldn’t video tape a certain home. Hubbys camera battery died in that home even though it was fully charged when we left our house 2 hours before.

Both videos I tried to take have weird clicking and then shut off. I tried to tape whole house. I never shut off video. Camera kept doing it.

We had a great lunch at Benny’s

While in city we also looked at the old mill. People claim its haunted by a 16-18 Year old girl. All looked good to me. Its an abandoned building.

Its old town section is adorable.

Well then off to camp ground and a scared to death pup as soon as we entered the cabin.

image

Pup wouldn’t let my son set her down. She was shaking and shivering violently. As soon as hubby got there I told him something on here she’s scared of. He turned place upside down.
We found rodent droppings. We got in car and drove home! Thank God my pup has a good nose.

So our mini vacation went wacko. But we’re not going to die from some rodent virus. And for that I’m greatful. We set out for an adventure. We got one!

Maybe it was the super moon that created the weirdness.

Monday found us at ShoreLine Village, The Korean friendship bell and a picnic lunch.

Then off to lunch for his favorite Jack In The Box!

While at Jack in the box I ran into a friend I haven’t seen in way to long. It was nice to catch up.

And of course after that we need to go clean the MILs place. Here is one of her cats.

She has 2 their only friendly to her. Growl and lunge at other people.

I’ve had 9 cats in my life time and NEVER seen cats as mean as hers.

And … the sun came out right before ceremony! Woot. It was a toasty day in the sun. But I’m not complaining it was gorgeous! Don’t get sun here too often in June at the coast. It was a delight to have it on such a special day.
