My daughter Samra and her boyfriend Carl got here on Sat. and they had decided to stay at a nearby hotel within walking distance of the house. They wanted some alone time for Valentines Day.
Saturday evening I took them over to our favorite Italian place in Fullerton for dinner and afterwards we did a little walking to hit one of her old favorite stomping grounds store, Impso Facto (sp) sort of a punk clothing store that she use to like to shop in. One of her good friends did modeling for them too.
When we got home my husbands truck was in the driveway. Samra was so funny she said "Mom whose truck is that". I was "Honey Daddies home from Tulare", and we were all glad to see him. Jeff said Phred went nuts for about 15 mins. after he got inside and he had only been home about 20 mins. or so. He of course went right to bed. The kids went back to their hotel and after Frank got off work he went over and hung out with his sister, Carl and some of her friends.
I made a nice Sunday dinner for them Ham, mashed potatoes, green beans and mixed salad with fresh croissants from Costco. I only had half a croissant with dinner and really small amounts of ham & mashed potatoes but a lot of green beans. We ended up invited my husbands friend Jim over as his older teenage kids (19) were with their mother for the holiday. I had invited another friend and her family but Rosa's family had made some plans so they didn't make it.
Monday morning Jeff had to work 12 + hours again and before the kids left they took Frank and myself to breakfast at IHOP. I had healthy meal turkey bacon(2), egg sub., blueberry wheat pancakes (2) and water. I couldn't finish the meal so Frank ate what was left along with his own breakfast. lol
After we got back to the house Samra and I went through a bunch of pictures from when she was a young child, so she could share them with her pre-school kids. She told all of them that she grew up in the same city as Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm was in the city next store. We found a bunch of pics with Disney characters from Rescue Rangers and Duck Tails. A couple from KBF with Snoopy and Lucy so she was very happy. I was happy because she took some of her unopened Barbie's that were limited additions like fashion designers Bob Mackay (Cher's designer)in the late 1980's. She also took a lot of stuff from those days too. Half the closet was cleared out. Hurrah!
Was a great time and the weather was fantastic too.
Did good walks Sunday and today, yesterday did Leslie Sansone dvd "Fast 4 Miles". So getting my exercise in too.
Hope everyone had a Happy Valentines Day and a wonderful Presidents day also.
