The Long Catch Up (faire in separate post)

My dad would have turned 79 today. Happy Birthday Daddy!

It's funny how Mommy becomes Mom very early on, but Daddy never quite made it to Dad...

It's been a tough couple of days. G came home on Friday. Adjustments again. Kids not quite sure what's going on. Lots of melt downs - tantrums and tears.

Kids & I went to Rainforest Cafe for lunch and then went to the San Francisco Bay Aquarium on Sunday. They often check ID when you charge stuff in the store at the Cafe, and the guy said, "you've been here before because I remember checking your id". Yup. Checking my journal, I believe I've been there with the kids about once every two weeks for the past two months. Kids loved going through the aquarium's tunnel. Watching all the fish swim around you, above and the sides just fascinated them. Kyle got brave and touched a starfish in the tide pool area. I got to pet a skate. Didn't realize how soft their wings would be.

Auntie Yoshi (aka Auntie June) came home from the hospital today. Thursday, she fainted and fell in the lobby of her apartment. Suffered a compression fracture of her tail bone (I think). Turns out she has a bleeding ulcer and that's why she fainted. She seems to be doing much better, but please send some healing thoughts her way. She just turned 89 last month.

Dinner at Foxy's on Tuesday - American Idol as usual. We also watched When Harry Met Sally which I had never seen before. Very cute - enjoyed it very much.

Wednesday night, took Joycie out for a belated birthday dinner at Black Angus. Got a newbie waitress. She definitely needs some more seasoning. Food was good. Company was wonderful. Lots of yakking.
