Today is my husband’s birthday!! I woke up this morning and he had made me breakfast. The reason for this is that he gets up at the crack of dawn when it’s practically still dark out. His internal clock just won’t ever let him sleep past 5:00am. (I am SO the opposite of that!) So, since […]
Daddies are so important. I’m so lucky that my kids have a great one!
Today we went to the fire station to visit Rich on Father’s Day. It’s a bummer he had to work on his special day, but he didn’t seem to mind. He loves when his family visits him at work!
Umm…..how cute is this picture?
Rich got back into town (from fighting the fires in Big Sur) last night — so he came home late in the evening and we all had a nice day together today. He was super glad to be home, after being gone 15 days from us. And me and the kids, of course, were glad […]
Rich doesn’t get good cell reception where he’s at right now, so our phone conversations are brief and choppy at best. But today I understood him perfectly well when he said they are talking about keeping them there another seven days. Another seven days? Are you kidding me? What must his lungs be like by […]
Rich has been up north fighting the fires up there. He is in the Big Sur area, it’s almost been a week now and there’s still no talk about them coming home anytime soon. Looks like he’s going to miss Andrew’s birthday tomorrow. Bummer I worry about the air quality that he’s breathing day in […]
Rich just called and he and his crew just got sent to Monterey, CA…some seven hours away, to fight a brush fire. Darn!! Not only do I worry for his safety …but now he’ll be gone for who knows how many days. Bummer! So now not only will I be thinking and worrying about Audriana […]
Okay…so on his days off, this is what my husband is doing to “make ends meet” for our family. Yep, up on a ladder…way, way up…not fighting fires like usual, but painting houses. This is a house in Newport Beach, and while he was doing this one, a few home owners next to it came […]
August has 31 days, right? Okay…so I’ve got my calendar out in front of me and here is what I see — “O.T” marked in a circle on 9 days, which means “overtime” which are 24 hour shifts that Rich works on top of his normal 24 hour shifts at the fire department. So then, […]
Here is my ninth child, Shay. His real name is O Chez Mocha, but I just call him “Shay” for short. Sometimes I call him Shayboy. He’s so sweet! He’s a 3 year old Arabian. I bought him when he was just 12 months old. I had him down in the stables near me for […]
Afton had a soccer tournament about an hour’s drive from our house this weekend, and because we also had a lot going on at home, we decided to let Rich take her for the day and I stayed home with the rest of the kids. In between games they had a few hours to kill, […]
