Week 3

Happy Birthday to me!  Today is my birthday, and I even took the day off from work so I could have a day to myself--what a concept!  I should do this more often ;0)  It was yet another busy week that quickly came and went.  At least we had a nice long weekend and of course our highlight was the 49ers making it to the Super Bowl.  It's been a long time since we've seen them there.  I grew up in their glory days but that was a long time ago so it's wonderful to finally see them back on top.

Here's how the rest of our week went:

Day 14- Monday, 1/14/13
A new year means new meds.  The people here at the Target pharmacy know me well.  We saw Brandon's neurologist today.  We see him every 6 months and the year prior he had a really good year with only 3 migraines that resulted in vomiting attacks, but the past 6 months have not been so great.  He's had at least  8-10 episodes (so many I've lost count) and even the timing has changed so now its effecting school as well.  It must be time to try something different.  We're switching his daily meds to a beta-blocker in hopes that will help more.

Day 15- Tuesday, 1/15/13
I just picked the younger boys up from school and as usual they are raiding my pantry before starting homework.  It's getting harder and harder to keep this thing stocked.  Just wait until the oldest gets home and then it's game over.  These two are lucky they get a head start.

Day 16- Wednesday, 1/16/13
Rusty and Bella like to taunt each other.  Our afternoons can be pretty crazy with the two of them chasing each other around.  It's all fun and games though, and when they get tired they'll settle down and snuggle together.

Day 17- Thursday, 1/17/13
Tyler is studying for his finals.  He had English and Biology today and Spanish and PE tomorrow.  Next week he starts all new classes--Geometry, Engineering, Biomedical Sciences and more PE.  I know he's ready for the change.

Day 18- Friday, 1/18/13
Justin's friend Adrian came by for one last sleepover.  He's moving across the country to Pennsylvania next week!  This is the last time they will probably see each other which is really sad.  Look how sunny and warm it is too.  It's staying light later which is nice and even though our mornings are still frosty the afternoons feel nice.

Day 19- Saturday, 1/19/13
The Wongs took John and I out to dinner at Bandera for my upcoming birthday, and then we went back to our house for more drinks.  Sharon gave me some pretty crystal earrings in this cute little Paris box.  Love it!

Day 20- Sunday, 1/20/13
The SF 49ers win and go to the Super Bowl!  We watched the game at Sharon and Richie's.  It was a close game and tense at moments with our team coming from behind in the final quarter.  After they pulled out a win the guys could all relax and celebrate their team's victory.

This next week won't end soon enough.  We're heading to the mountains to play in the snow and ski for my annual birthday trip and of course everyone is super excited.

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you next Tuesday.



  1. Happy Birthday and GO 49'ers!!!! I cannot even imaging keeping a pantry stocked with growing boys in the house - I have girls and my 14 year old is always hungry :) Enjoy your ski trip!

  2. Happy Birthday! Your annual birthday trip sounds so fun! Have a great time! Hope you can get some medicine that will help Brandon. Love your photos! Have a great week!

  3. Happy Birthday! Have a great trip :) LOVE the glimpse into your life.

  4. Happy Birthday! Have a blast on your trip.
    My boys seem to eat everything under the sun and they are only 2 and 4. Really worried that it will only get worse as they get older.

  5. Happy Birthday to you!! Sounds like you had a lovely fun week...kuddos to you.

  6. Happy birthday!! Love the football photos, even though I was rooting for the Falcons :-) I hope the beta-blocker works for your son.

  7. YAY for the football party!! Oh man- it was quite a game. Nail biting. We were pacing the floor for most of it but SO INCREDIBLY HAPPY with the outcome. Harbaugh Super Bowl is exciting.
