You Are Megara!

Charming and witty. You are always the first person to come up with a wisecrack. Sure, you have an attitude, but that's why people love you. You keep them on their toes. Sometimes you can be misleading, but always end up doing the right thing for the people you love.

No phone, No computer, No fridge...

Can you believe it is possible in the 21st century to live without these things. I think that i have gotten use to it by now since i have been without for about a week. well i am cheating here at my MIL's house using the phone and computer. but the fridge!!! Why does it take so long to deliver a fridge that was ordered a week ago? I guess i am getting a tiny taste of my dream to live like a colonial woman. Only this i can get around with a cooler and ice. Not too hard but i just can't go down the lane and get ol' bessie to squeeze out a few bottles of milk for us and then make butter! haha we are surviving and i think this experience has made me appreciate the power of prayer and just plain patience! I wish i had pics to post for this but since i am not even at home to load them i see no point. wait for futher descriptions of our new home.

Well i took Jeremy to work today in morning LA gridlock fashion. and then i realized i forgot to close our garage door and had to go back and close it!! talk about wasting my $4 bucks/gallon on that! But we had our bikes and stuff in there so i could just fall prey to the townhome community weirdos that don't work and just hang out with their dogs all day smoking who knows what and boozin' it by the pool. More to come...

Soakin' up the California Sun

We made it in no less than 12 hours!! Actually the drive was ok since i was able to listen to Spongebob for hours and laugh and finally the girls watched Superman and I was able to follow along. I caught myself smiling alot just thinking about the movie. Jeremy drove the truck and it seemed to go so slow since i was following him. But we had the walkie talkies and had a great time talking back and forth about all the crazy billboards and whatever popped into our mind. Quoting movies had us laughing and took our minds off the long drive or the screaming kids for me. Poor Jeremy had to drive during the day with the heater on so the truck wouldn't over heat. It must have been about 140 degrees in the truck! Poor Jeremy! Tomorrow we go apartment hunting. I've got me eye on two that look absolutely fabuloso. Wish us luck. I won't even tell you how much it will cost us to move in and what the monthly rent is like!

If you like Pina Colada......

and getting caught in the rain!! That is what happened to myself and little family while on a bike ride to the duck pond at BYU and back. It started out just fine. It was overcast but not too bad and all the duckies loved getting the bread. so it was starting to get boring feeding them and i noticed some rain drops. the kids hopped into the bike trailer and jeremy and i were off. it was sprinkling, then a little harder, then harder and then hailing on our faces(the girls were fine and dandy in the trailer all snug and warm and dry) and the lighting was cracking and the thunder rolling, all the while i am yelling at jeremy " wow, honey, what a great idea to feed the ducks today!!" We pedaled our little hearts out and were still soaked to the bone. If you were here you know that it was a full on flash flood. I wish we had pictures but we didn't get any or risk getting the camera wet. As we pull up to the complex, our neighbor was on her balcony watching her daughter and laughing hysterically at us in our condition. I thought it was rather hilarious too! We are all cozy now, with root beer and pizza to keep us dry and happy!

The Spongebob Cake

Just to clarify about the cake that sarah and the rest of us enjoyed-Yes we did make the cake all by our wee little selves. We thought it would be fun to make and have the cake pan for many more cakes to come!

Happy Birthday Sarah!! You're 5!!

Wow it actually happened amidst all the boxes and small moving space, we managed to have about 5 kids plus parents for a very quick, easy Spongebob Birthday Party. Actually before we sang happy birthday to sarah, i led all the kids in the SPBOB theme song. it was a riot!! good thing jeremy got all our ridiculousness on video. I just don't know how to configure it to blogger. So Grandma Carol baked the lemon cake, i made the frosting and together, Jeremy and I frosted the cake in true Warren over the top style. Sarah got way too many presents even though i told them it was not necessary since it meant more work for me to pack it all. But they turned out to be great. Emily thought it was her birthday too! I am so proud of my 5 year old, who today, asked me what Cumbersome meant, and then told me the whole definition. Seriously, my teeth broke when my jaw hit the ground. She learned it from Word Girl on Slow down girl you are growing too fast!

We finally did it!!

I know this is a week old but Jeremy graduated and I feel this huge boulder rock off my shoulder! We feel free at last, free at last. It only took 6 years and 2 kids to get a Bachelor's! Wow we took the long road not the high road. So my kids are driving me mad since they are both so whiney and crybabies that i want to sell them to the gypsies and never set eyes on them again. it is ok to write that just as long as i don't say it out loud. otherwise it might happen! so enjoy seeing jeremy in his cap and gown- i know i did.
