Flower fields

Today was another beautiful day, a bit over cast and sweater cool. I had Emily so we decides to go to the flower fields. They are so pretty and I love going anywhere even if it is all touristy or even full of schools on field trips.

Beautiful Day

Wow! The weather has been beautiful the last few days and days to come I love it. Sunday I took a drive down to La Jolla and sat on the each near the children's pool (where the seals have taken over the beach). It was such a peaceful place to clear my head after the crazy week.

Yesterday was a meeting with crazy mom. Not sure if I feel great may e the calm before the storm? I would line to think that she would walk away quietly but don't feel that way about this situation.

For now I am just going to enjoy the beauty of the day and get ready to go to St. Louis next week.

What a week

This has been a really long tough week. I don't understand how someone could make false allegations against another person, walk into their place of employment and demand someone's employee records, find out that is not an option and decide to make more false allegations there as well and think that there will not be any repercussion. This happened to my friend this week! Some crazy lady wrote an email to him and cc'd the email to some potential employer and made many false allegations. Later he found out that an hour before he was emailed this same crazy lady wend into his place of employment and started giving the receptionist a ton of made up crap! I all for freedom of speech but this is gone to far.

My toes were in desperate need of a pedicure today so on my way south towards San Diego I decided to stop and try out a new salon to get a pedicure. I walked into the shop and was greeted by some very cheerful women. I was directed to the wall of polish and asked to choose a color, so many colors and I had to choose only one.
After I chose a pretty blue I was seated in a lovely massage chair with heated seats. How did they know I love heated seats?!?! Next, they placed a large pillow on my lap and reclined my seat. Wow a nap too! Pretty soon she began working on my toes without a word to me. Did she know exactly what I wanted? I guess . . . I couldn't see one thing she was doing over the giant green pillow placed on my lap. Eventually the pillow was removed, my flip flops had been place gently on my feet and I was directed to a toe dryer. My blue toes looked beautiful, what would this cost me I had not told her what type of pedicure I wanted, all I knew was my back was so warm, sweat was beading up on my forehead and I had blue toes.
Wow $18.00 plus a tip was all I was charged for the mystery pedicure. Will I go back to this salon? Maybe. . . I will have to be sure that I do not get a fungal infection in my toes but the experience was nice and the place looked clean. Only time will tell.

Have a wonderful day

He's 17 today

I love him so much and cannot believe how fast he has grown. We brought him home as a 22 inch 9 1/2 pound baby and now he is 6 ft 4 inches and almost 200 pounds. 17 years has been good to him. I hope the rest of his life is wonderful and he continues to enjoy and discover all the wonders life has to offer.

Last day of being 16

Today is my wonderful sons last day at being 16. He is such a a sweet teenager who doesn't mind his mom being around.
As per our tradition we have been celebrating birthday week! It is so much fun.
Monday we went to his favorite breakfast spot - 101 diner
Tuesday he got breakfast in bed well it was more like brunch
Wednesday he got to open his Dr Dre headphones.
Thursday we went to Extraordinary Desserts before practice
Today we went to his favorite lunch place - Miyabi
I cannot believe he is turning 17 he is so amazing and caring and sweet. He enjoys hanging out at the hospital playing video games with his friend who has cancer and will not be coming home from the hospital. It's nice to know that he will always be there for his friends.
I wish you the best year coming and may all your wishes come true. I love you!
