Too tired to think of a title
Just got back from OC fair. Geez, we spent almost eight hours there! It was a really good day to go, didn't feel that hot either. The kids had loads of fun and I had loads of food.

How many more years do I have to endure this?
Today was such a bad day. Constant fighting over everything and anything between my two kids. It started after A. got up from her nap. It drove me nuts!

I only read a few chapters last night and got really tired around midnight. But John woke me up about an hour and half later throwing up in the bathroom. Couldn't go back to sleep after that. I started reading again. And didn't stop until God knows when.

Now I am paying for it.

Harry Potter Weekend
Saturday was running errands, didn't get home until 3 in the afternoon. Right away sent John to wait for the mailman. He didn't have to wait at all. When he got to the box, the mailman was there. He got two boxes from him, one for me and one for our neighbor. I wonder what was in it? I could hear the neighbor's scream of delight inside of our house when John gave her the book. Surprisingly I didn't start reading until night time. Whatever I have read so far I am liking it. I think I felt asleep reading around 3am.

Had to drag my ass outta bed on Sunday to watch "Order of Phoenix" with a friend and John. It was a bit boring in the beginning, still it was a good movie. Although it is my least favorite of all the Harry Potters.

Potty training sucess
Amber is potty trained. Yay! Joy! She has been for a while now. What a relieve!

Since my last bitching section, I decided to make her go at least once per hour. If she did her business, great; if not, that was fine too. I did that for two weeks, obviously my persistent paid off. If nothing else, it sure saves lots of diaper money, which means more trips to Starbucks for me.

Off to bed now. Took the kids to circus tonight, or was it last night? JE felt asleep during intermission, but our daughter stayed awake the whole time, not even during the trip home. I blamed the cotton candy.

A day in downtown
Every other Friday, John is off work. That was the case for the past Friday. We decided to make it a day in downtown LA.

We took train, then dash to have breakfast at the Pantry. At 10:30 in the morning there was actually a line out the door. But we didn't have to wait long to get seated. The food was plenty and as yummy as I remembered, which the last time I was there was about ten years ago. JE enjoyed it too and ate everything on his plate.

After breakfast, we took another dash and headed out to California Science Center. It was our original plan, but when the dash dropped us off in front of Natural History Museum, JE decided he wanted to go there instead. We have a membership, so money was not lost on admission. We saw dinosaurs, mammals, displays from the movie Night at the Museum, and butterflies.

When all were seen, we headed out to Philippes for some french dip sandwich. Oh my God! I was so disappointed, the sandwich sucked so badly. Cole's is so much better and bigger, unfortunately it is closed for remodeling. At least I know now. Needless to say I left very angry and unsatisfied. We did end up having some mochi afterwards, so it made up a bit.

It was a pretty good day spent with family and not to mention the gas and parking we saved.

John got a notice for jury duty, it happens to be around the time we are in Australia. He had to call back and reschedule. He is actually excited about it. As for me, long ago I have checked that I have small ones to take care of at home, I have not got a notice for years.

I lost my phone. Good thing it is insured. Still some a-hole picked it up and used some minutes yesterday.

Almost over
Our neighbor finally stopped shooting fireworks. It has been going on for the last hour. So annoying! I love fireworks, but not if it was that close to our window.

Anyway, had a good day today. John and JE went to see Transformer this morning, while Mom and I shopped for gifts for our Oz trip in August. Some crazy sales were happening today. JE really enjoyed the movie, and I just took him to see Ratatouille on Monday. I guess this summer is going to all about watching movies. I personally really liked Ratatouille, except the part about all the rats cooking. That grossed me out a little bit.

Tonight John also took JE to a Dodgers' game. It had fireworks after the game. I think they are still stuck in the parking lot.
