Momoishi Beach

Dorothy, I think you'll want to watch this clip. ::grin::

Our Saturday got off to a LAAAAZY start. Mike and Jared were up late last night. I know Mike was working on computers at 1:00 a.m. I believe he came to bed at 2:00 a.m.

I had some visits with ladies about healthy food choices. Connie and Windy came over so I could explain an expel spreadsheet....BUT....the computers weren't working at the moment they showed up. The kids LOVE havng the S kids come over and had a great time playing.

Windy and I decided it would be a good idea to make the best of this sunny day and take the kidds to the beach. This gave both Dads a bit of quiet to focus....we came home and 3 of our 4 computers are connecting to the Internet. The wireless router is still not working. Mike wonders if we need to buy a new router. He ended up setting up a network and having ONE computer go online and others piggy back or something...we're not at all sure that it's connecting to Fiber Optics or that this is the fastest way...but it's working. NOW....when we get the wireless working life will be normal.

I made a real dinner tonight. I realize I need to get back to our diet/lifestyle...and I need to begin keeping menus. My schedule includes activities on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and without a plan we're too short of time or energy to cook real food for dinner. This week - just a true confession - our last four dinners were: Tuesday ORGANIC cookies/cookie dough, Wednesday ALL NATURAL ice cream, Thursday Fresh ground whole wheat Waffles and Friday is Pizza and movie night....

This afternoon I made the shake and bake mix and made REAL shake and bake chicken, ranch potato wedges, bread and corn...the only thing not from scratch or fresh was the bread...and that I will begin next week even though I haven't found gluten. ::snort:: I must get our LIFE's been 6 months of PCS and it's TIME.

Choosing Joy!

We've been off-schedule also. I think I'll get to work on a new menu for this season. We've just been flying by the seat of our pants.LOL

I'll be praying as you get back into "normal." Whatever that

At least it was ORGANIC cookie dough for dinner!

The video was super cute. I bet Dorothy misses her friend but you gained a good friend! I think she needs to head to Japan and visit you both :-).

Seems like the final step of getting back into a regular life. I'd be looking forward to this part of the routine!

Best part- I now know what your voice sounds like!
Sharing the ranch mix with a sister who cannot do Hidden Valley!

Hi D,

I couldn't get the video to work. {sniff}!

I love reading that your kids enjoy having the S family over! It brings tears to my eyes that you all seem to be getting along so well. I miss them so much, but am glad that you have found friendships in eachother.

Bummer, Dorothy. It worked so well from this end.

Janette - yep my voice yelling at the beach anyhow. LOL

Romany said...

Jamie helped me. It took half an hour but we got there in the end. It was worth it! LOL!

We usually can't see video on people's blogs.
