Day 174 - Lisa

Jacob is coming, Jacob is coming!  Today was all about running errands, stocking up of favorite foods and prepping his bedroom.  We spent way too much time at Costco, there's a big surprise but they were selling these variety packs and I could not resist.  My mom and I will fight over the Orange soda. I'm betting 2 to 1 Jacob takes a Grape and I bet the Bubble Up is the last to go. 

The boys' flight was delayed by one hour.  His mom (my cousin Monica) sent us pictures of him at the SFO airport and I did the same when he landed.  He was a happy boy.  Not scared was the verdict, he loved it and oneeya loves him.  So every thing is good!

Day 173 - Lisa

Ha!  No, but Maria Elena aka Sis does!

Day 173 - Sis

Recently we went out for dinner and decided to take home a dessert.  My choice was key lime pie.  I rarely have it and when I opened up the carton, saw this pretty presentation, the taste buds started to flow.  One bite told me it was all about presentation. Sigh.

Day 172 - Sis

Music is important but stereo equipment still in boxes so you make do.  This old boombox has come in quite handy and so portable too.  Makes me want to watch Spike Lee's movie, " Do the Right Thing," and hear, " Fight the Power."

Day 172 - Lisa

I have never had to pay when moving out of a place due to damages or wear and tear;  my string of cleanliness states in tact.  We got a refund for moving out.  Woohoo!

Day 171 - Sis

My office, set up by designer daughter.  It's quite nice and I have a calming view of the backyard  through another window across from me.  Of course when the designer is sitting there the view isn't quite the same. Next week it will even be harder to enjoy when the "kitty' garden window is installed and these two windows are removed.  The feline in the house will surely use the whole thing to stalk bugs, birds and bathe for hours.

Day 171 - Lisa

Now that's a plastic food container!  Finally.  I'm so sick of our warped ZipLock throw aways!  It's the little things in life...

Day 170 -Sis

Listen you have to understand that alcohol isn't in my daily life.  A drink or two while on a vacation, glass of wine with a nice dinner or a beer on a hot summer evening, pretty much accounts for my intake.  So I really don't have to explain why I packed a bottle of California wine to be stored for three years, except that a nicely aged wine will be enjoyed in Georgia! Disclaimer: The previous statement does not include trips to New Orleans!

Day 170 - Lisa

My sister know how to take care of her sis.  As I texted her complaining about all my aches and pains since moving she kept texting back - "just wait your birthday gift is on the way."  Thank you George!  More Spa stuff - mom stop rolling your eyes!

Day 169 - Lisa

My crazy friend Kim and her husband Ronn sent us the below housewarming gift.  Only a true Giants fan can understand the coolness of this gift.  LOL!  I sense that Aye ChiaPanda will come to life and go on many adventures with Dos Dames as his owners.  ;>  First quest?  To grow the most Gigantes Chia Afro ever!

Day 169 - Sis

I just love it when I get paid to wash, it would be better if it wasn't out of my own pants pockets. Hmmm, need to work on a wage increase, I mean come on Sis, 30 cents?!

Day 168 - Sis

It's turning into a good day to unpack with this bonanza find, the wonderful cast iron pans!

Day 168 - Lisa

Father's Day is kind of surreal with my Dad having passed 8 years ago now.  So today I say "Thank you Dad for giving me many life skills.  Today I salute your open-mindedness to share your mechanical skills & knowledge with your "girls."  don't know how I'd manage without them or your tools."
