Day 150 – May 8, 2011

This morning, I woke up a little earlier that I wanted to (yet again!). I couldn’t figure out why the wireless network was so slow, so I decided to try to figure it out. It turns out that the router wasn’t broadcasting its SSID, but at least the network was private 😀 So I set up the wireless network on your mom’s laptop, so hopefully it will be used for more than Solitaire 😀

After a late breakfast and some chit chat, it was time for me to go.. but not before we took some photos

Your mom and her Mother's Day present

Your mom and me

Your mom and H

The trip was definitely too short.. but I’m glad I got to go 🙂 Thanks L & H for having me over 🙂

Day 149 – May 7, 2011

This morning, I slept in a little.. not too much because I had a bunch of things to do!  I tried to unpack a bit, but that didn’t go over so well. I packed a night bag, and went to the grocery store to grab a couple of things. I started baking. I made the Vanilla Lime Pound Cake.. it took way longer than I remembered it taking 😦

I put my overnight bag in the car, fed the cats, got gas, and was on my way to Corpus! It took me 3 hours to get to your brother’s, but to actually drive to Corpus, it took almost 4 hours! Also, the GPS was a little off… luckily I was able to get back on track!

As soon as I got to Corpus, we went for dinner.

Rigatoni's

I had the chicken parm.. it was really good 😀

The flowers you sent your mom had already arrived!

So pretty!

Earlier this week, your brother went to see your mom and took her out to dinner. His girlfriend started this puzzle

this was a toughie!

and we tried to put some parts together.. but it wasn’t easy 😦 Once we were ready.. we played cards! We played 3 games and everyone won one. At midnight, H gave your mom her Mother’s Day present. The card was really sweet 🙂 After the third game, we called it a night!

Day 148 – May 6, 2011

This morning, I was craving Mexican pastries so MF & I made a trip down to the Mexican bakery.

*drool*

At lunch time, I went to meet up with my friend SK at the House of Blues.

Houston HoB

SK was in town for the day. Since I had a late breakfast (mmmm pastries), we just went to Starbucks to get some drinks. After chatting for a drink, we went to run a couple of errands — he needed to go make a deposit and pay his cell phone bill.

Shortly after I got home, I saw this..

Turns out it wasn't the kitty love we thought it was... it was more motherly LOL

Poor little Tomasa.. there was no milk that was going to come out of that nipple!! I laughed and laughed and laughed and eventually she stopped.

The kitties were just hanging out looking sad... as though they knew what was going on

I felt so bad separating them but I was under strict orders not to bring home the tiny little kitty 😦

In the afternoon, it was time to drive back to Austin! I put the cats in their carriers, loaded the cats, and finally loaded the kitties. It wasn’t too bad of a drive.. except Eddie wasn’t very still for a lot of the drive.

Such a curious little one!

The drive was pretty uneventful otherwise.. and after 22.5 days of being away from Austin, I was home 😀

Day 147 – May 5th, 2011

Happy Cinco De Mayo!!

This morning didn’t start off very well.. first, I woke up after having had bad dreams… and as I talked to you, Dusty fell off the windowsill and scratched me on the way down.

Owwwwie - it looks worse than it was

In the aftenoon, AF, A and the baby came by after A got picked up from school. H is in the orchestra and they’re playing downtown. So we headed downtown. It was exciting to watch them.. and it also made me miss being in a large band… I loved playing in front of others as part of the band in High School.. did I ever tell you I was in band? lol

The Advanced {String} Orchestra

Proud mama and crazy cousin 😉

Las 3 bellas

It was a fun evening 🙂

Day 146 – May 4th, 2011

Happy Star Wars day — May the fourth be with you!!

MF made breakfast again yay and we went out for a late lunch after we picked up H from school.. street tacos and we shared a hamburger!

Ever since last night, it had seemed like Eddie and Tomasa were upset with each other; I hadn’t seen them together at all!! But late this morning, I finally saw them together again and Eddie was grooming her {it sure does look like they’re kissing!!}

Cuties!

This afternoon, there were no excuses and I went to Zumba with her. On our way out, we noticed the Siamese’s kittens outside.

This was Eddie & Siamese in April last year

Chillin' outside.. 5 out of 6

Oh there's the 6th!

They’re so cute!

Zumba wasn’t bad.. after that, we went to look for a book at Target then Walmart and went to Taco Cabana since we were starving at this point… we also had a margarita while we were there 😀

After surfing for a bit, I decided to call it a day!

Day 145 – May 3rd, 2011

This morning, I woke up and got to work straight away. I had a few more things to do before my 1:1. At 11am, I called my boss and went over things I needed to work on for our group’s website. After that, MF and I met up with her friend for lunch.

I had the fried mojarra.. can't remember the name in English

After lunch, I went back MF’s to work some more.. in the meantime, I noticed Dusty got more comfortable at MF’s house

On top of the fridge!!

Eddie also had to climb up stuff

This evening, I watched TV while Mireya went to Zumba. Nothing much else went on…

Day 144 – May 2nd, 2011

Ah.. Monday. The only thing that made starting a Monday good {aside from chatting with you of course} was that MF made breakfast smoothies and toasted some waffles. AF was coming by after dropping A off at school. For some reason, I was surprised to see her with the baby… sometimes I forget she’s got a baby lol.. I tried working but had a hard time concentrating. I didn’t end up doing a whole lot of work during the day.

I got to see the little kitties in action 😀

Hugs

Eddie grooms Tomasa a lot… then he hugs her.. it’s really cute 😀

In the afternoon, I finally got my groove and started working. I stayed working while MF went to Zumba. I worked way into the wee hours.. I wanted to get some things done before my 1:1 tomorrow… Off to bed!
