Monday, fires and cheering up...

Wow, I sure am glad this day is over. The after work - work - was really kind of frustrating today. Devin could see I was a bit irritated and did a wonderful job trying to cheer me up! He sure is a pretty good little guy.

I am not sure if everyone is aware but the other side of Palmdale (other side of the mountain) is pretty much on fire and the air quality is pretty darn bad. Devin has been a little worried about his breathing. He hasn't had a asthma problem for a while but with all the past experiences he is worried. They kept the kids inside today, during breaks, that have a history of that.

On another note; both Devin and Desirae are enjoying being back in school.

Today has been kind of a lazy day. I tried to lay down for a nap (which didn't go well) and when I got up Desirae was working on a craft at the dinner table. Otherwise everyone has been kind of just hanging out.

Denise and I did do something cool where we found a receipt for a Spanish tortilla which is basically an potato, onions and eggs mixed together into something similar to a pie. They were REALLY good in Spain and I could never figure out how to make the darn things. So with the receipt and TouTube we were able to figure it out. They are pretty good and if you are in the mood for something different you should give it a try!

Finally... A blog...

Well, it has been a pretty long while since I have blog or really posted anything. A lot of things have been going on but for the most part it was throwing out my back that really screwed up the momentum on blogging. Not being able to really use a camera doesn't help either. Today Deanna really wanted to have her picture taken and while "we" were cleaning out the garage she pushed it and I broke out the camera. As you may have heard we have a lot of fires going on in Californian so the weather was very weird and the lighting was kind of off with all the smoke and ash in the air. Deanna had a lot of fun and it was cool taking photographs of her.

Since the last post my back has finally gotten better, the kids have spent a week at Nana and Max's house, Denise and I did a over night trip to the coast, Deanna had her 4th birthday and the kids are back in school... Hmm, so there is a pretty big empty spot for the last couple of months... Oh well, hopefully I am back on track with this now!
