Dinner and a movie

NO, not with my husband..with my friends!!! I love Ry, but he really isn't a dinner and a movie out of our home type of guy. I love him, it's not a huge deal..but I want Olive Garden and a great movie. So Ry set me on my way. It is probably his last weekend before his long out of town trip, so he has sent out into the world to have fun!

Not to worry my friends, Sunday he has Netflix and steak planned. After we go to church, then #2's basketball end of the season bowling party, wow what a mouthful...and then a boat party. So we will totally be sick of each other come Monday!

It's suppose to be superstar warm I am thinking a quick beach trip might be in order this afternoon..BEFORE soccer practice!

check on you guys later

Busy busy busy

I have been a bad blogger. I wish I had some fantastic reason like a great vacation, but really no. I have normal "mom" duties that have kept me from my blog. Plus my husband is home. So he monopolizes the computer, but I can't say that I care. At least he is home. He is getting ready for an "out of town" trip, and I think emotionally I am just not ready! Though, I am not sure Navy wives ever get "ready!" I think we just smile, sometimes cry, through it until our husbands arrive home...

Friday, February 13, 2009 one

I think this is at least the sixth or seventh post I have started with that word. Sometimes that is all I can come up with. Days like this I need more wit! It is werid to think, just Wednesday I felt FANTASTIC. I mean purely amazing. While away I didn't get enough sleep and was just drained. I alway sleep better when Ryan is home. I think my entire house does. I have yet to see Nanea or Traysea before their morning wake up calls. Pure bliss is what I say. So Wednesday after having three full nights of great sleep, I woke up energized!

But then it was off to the feeling fantastic, I sorta had a downer.

The decision to not have anymore children is looming. Now, emotionally it is SO difficult for me. It is such a final decision! I need Jessalee to go back to work so I can love on her Annabelle. Or Misty to go back to get her Phd and leave those two handsome fellas with me. I need the baby fix. Of course, right at this moment I have this huge hole that I think needs to be filled! There as SO many reasons to make this decision final..but in my heart I just can't say yes. I keep having to remind myself, I have three, praise God, happy, healthy children. Blessed with boundless energy and the ability to turn anything around. Why chance not seeing them grow up, ronee? So everyday, I am going to have to settle into the fact that having another child would be my selfish want. Sigh...So day one, a day closer to being okay with the thought of no more children. I know it's the right decision, I just don't like it!

What makes today a great day

The reminder that even tons of miles away.  Eva the diva loves me.  Oh and her mom and emmalicious too...
Thanks guys!  I love you too!

I am behind the times. (sorry this got really long)

Luckily, Chinese New Year's last 15 days.

It's been crazy. And I have sorta been self absorbed, so #1 reminded me yesterday that I didn't give them their New Year wishes. Now, if you don't really know me..and only know via the world wide web, then you have no idea that I am from Hawaii and have been blessed to be a mix of different nationalities. I love it. And growing up, never really thought anyone was one thing. The charm of Hawaii is that everyone is a "mixed plate" of things. I happen to be Hawaiian (Native), Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, and White. Okay, English. But brought up in a primarily an Asian house. Chinese and Japanese customs and traditions where always observed in our house. And in Hawaii, schools celebrate every holiday under the sun. Just in case someone is something. every year at this time my children pull out the Chinese Astrology book and try and see what their predictions for the year. Now, Chinese are extremely traditional. There are a list of a million things that you are and aren't suppose to do during the New Year Eve and Day and this 15 day period.

How Your House Should Be Cleaned

The entire house should be cleaned before New Year's Day. On New Year's Eve, all brooms, brushes, dusters, dust pans and other cleaning equipment are put away. Sweeping or dusting should not be done on New Year's Day for fear that good fortune will be swept away. After New Year's Day, the floors may be swept. Beginning at the door, the dust and rubbish are swept to the middle of the parlor, then placed in the corners and not taken or thrown out until the fifth day. At no time should the rubbish in the corners be trampled upon. In sweeping, there is a superstition that if you sweep the dirt out over the threshold, you will sweep one of the family away. Also, to sweep the dust and dirt out of your house by the front entrance is to sweep away the good fortune of the family; it must always be swept inwards and then carried out, then no harm will follow. All dirt and rubbish must be taken out the back door.

Of course this didn't happen at my house. I did..not clean on Chinese New Year. But mostly just an excuse not to clean!!!

Each one of my children did receive their Lai See. Which is red envelopes with crisp dollar bills inside. This is a tradition my children NEVER forget. Oh and lucky candy. But Lai See is for children and unmarried people that come to your house to celebrate. It is suppose to symbolize you being blessed with money through out the year. It is the one tradition that every Chinese child LIVES for!

For me, it's always been Gau. Which is a dessert. And I can make myself sick on it. back to my in order..

#1 is a Pig or Boar. Depending where you read it. Because she is born in year of the pig, I have always called her my piglet.

According to Chinese astrology, someone born in the year of the Boar is usually an honest, straightforward and patient person. They are a modest, shy character who prefers to work quietly behind the scenes. When others despair, they are often there to offer support. This type of person is reserved with those they do not know too well, but as time passes and they gain confidence, those around them may discover a lively and warm-hearted person behind that mask of aloofness. Despite those born in the year of the Boar having a wide circle of friends and acquaintances, they have few close friends who understand them and share their inner thoughts and feelings. It is easy to put trust in Boars; they won't let you down and will never even attempt to do so. Such people simply want to do everything right according to social norms.

It's scary how much this is #1. Not that we ever really believe in these things. Because we are Christians and have no belief in the stars and tea leaves. But it is always fun!!!

My hope for her this year is that she finds something she is totally passionate about and just pursue it!

#2 Was born in the year of the horse. And she is absolutely a horse!

The horse personality is often willing to give as well as expect a lot of liberty. These people are extremely independent and confident. The horse person is very quick-witted, inquisitive and determined. They are very good at recognizing patterns: she or he is on to the thought in your mind even before you've expressed it. In general, these people are gifted.They adore being the center of everyone's attention, but they prefer to be recognized for their skills and are easily flattered. On the other hand these people have an honesty and genuine warmth which attracts lots of people and helps them make new friends. People as a rule confide in a horse person because he/she is sincerely interested in their thoughts and feelings and is able to help with both wise words and an action, but there is a small problem about it - the horse person is so excited by new discoveries that it is difficult for them to keep a secret. This is not something that arises out of malice or revenge - sometimes they just cannot help themselves.

The Sheep, Goat, or Ram, is thought to be the most artistic or creative sign of the zodiac. The Sheep is artistically talented and has a great sense of fashion. Chances are that this type will prefer to be a designer or painter, or go into the kind of profession where he/she can make the most of his/her gift for creating beautiful things.

These people are extremely beautiful creatures - they think before acting, and try not to hurt anyone's feelings. If it ever happens that the Sheep person causes unforeseen problems, it is very likely that he/she will step forward to rectify the situation. This side of their character helps them maintain a healthy social life as well as enabling them to deal with life's ups and downs.

My hopes for my children....

#1 that she finds something she is so passionate about this year. whatever it is, and I know I should be careful of what I ask for...but I really just want her to fall in love with something and do it!!

#2 that she starts to take the time to just be 6..well almost 7. She always wants to be older then she is!!!

#3 that she starts to stay a little more focused and find a way to focus all of her healthy energy!

Sorry this was such a killer post!

In my own bed

So after everything, I made it home safe and my own bed!

Thank GOD Ryan is home, because I came home. Changed out of my clothes and just lied down at one..and that was it. He woke me up, made me eat, and then I went right back to bed.

Boy was I upset when his alarm started singing. And lately he let it ring, until it decided to stop. HATE HIM! I think he needs to read Sunshine's alarm posting. So easily said, I was not ready to be up this morning.

I plan to take it easy today. I promise. Well, I have to take the girls to school and get the van registered and start the unpacking process. The one MAJOR plus was that while we were away, my mommy washed all our dirty clothes. I heart her! She knew the last thing I would need would to be to come home and have a weeks worth of WINTER clothes to wash!

I love my mommy!

My family

I hate to announce this via my blog..but my family as suffered a loss.

Nothing is better then the healing power of my family! I can't wait for the day that my brothers family is just down the road! I best friend lives 30 minutes from me! Sometimes you just need to be able to breakdown in front of someone. That they can walk into a room and hold your hand and that is enough. No words. Just tears.

So tomorrow night, God willing, my family will be all tucked into their own beds.
