Bleh

This morning I woke to find my car was broken into. They stole my husband's wallet and pay check and our cell phone. The smashed the driver window to get in and there where tiny pieces of glass everywhere. My husband never carries cash so he never saw anything wrong with leaving his wallet in the car especially parked in the drive way. The worst part of the whole situation is having to replace his wallet and contents and the price of a new window. We already have to get the whole back side fixed from an accident last week on our way to L.A.for a photo shoot. Some kid rammed his uncle's SUV into the back of our brand new car while we where stopped in traffic. We hadn't even put the license plates on yet.

THE PARK

I live in this area of San Diego called Chula Vista. The further east you go the newer and more parks you find. I went to the park with the kids today that they call "the water park." It has sprinklers that they can run through as well as a regular play ground. Well the sprinklers were shut off for some reason so the kids played on the playground equipment. All the kids love this huge circle that is sloped and spins. A bunch of boys where on there and my 3 year old daughter grabs onto one of the sections to spin with them. One of the youngers boys (around 5) takes her sunglasses off her face and tells her if she wants them back to get off. She gets off and the boy throws the sunglasses into the wood chips. I tell him to leave her alone and one of the other boys grabs the sunglasses and throws them even further. By this time I am pretty angry and I basically yell at the boy to leave her alone. The mothers never once even turn their heads to see what was going on. I felt like grabbing the two kids and dragging them over to their mothers and yelling just at much at the mothers as the kids by this point. Their daughter asked what was wrong but they just sat there gabbing away. How could someone just ignore their kids like that. I went to another park and the kids had a wonderful time. The really like the mister they have at the other park.

Gym

Bally's Sucks! So I was supposed to get a refund yesterday along with a phone call. Nothing. I wrote this the other day in My Space.

Evil Bally's
Current mood: pissed off
Category: Sports

I hate Bally's. The one closest to my house is totally dirty and the machines are broken. They shrunk down the size of the kids club to make a break room for the trainers. Its the only major gym around here with no slide in the kids club whatsoever or toys really. I went to a smaller Bally's further away and they had a small slide from Toysrus and jump ropes and all sorts of things to play with.

I cancel my membership last month while I still could and they are like it won't officially be cancelled until the billing date. It was charged and so I assumed the membership was cancelled. So this month I am looking at my bank account online just to see if I had to go to the bank with some checks I have or if they could wait until the next day. I am expecting at least $50 in one account and a couple hundred in the other account. WTF the one that was supposed to have $50 was negative. So I look through and there is another charge from Bally's! I sent an e-mail over the weekend that has yet to be answered and I call today because I was out of town and now I have to wait for some supervisor to get a chance to look at things when I am sure it shows on the computer I called multiple times last month to get it cancelled.

Another thing that pissed me off was that you scan your card when you go and they where out of cards for over a week when I signed up. Well there is a minimum amount of times you have to be able to cancel the membership and they where not wanting to count the week and a half of gyms visits when they where out of cards and hand swipes when the system was down. If they can't keep there system up and working they can't require things like that. They where trying to punish me for their broken down commnication between the gym and corporate.

Border Wait
me
mediaessence
Today was my brother's daughter's baptism. It was in Tijuana and I went with my parents and two children because my husband had to work. So we wait in line and get up there. My parents hand the agent their "green-cards" and I am holding my ID out the back window. She is sitting there with this expression of pure laziness trying to move the least amount possible. She says " I see this is going to take a long time. I need everyone's documents. I have 2 and I see 3 people." Finally I hand my ID to my father and he hands it to her. She scans all 3 cards hands them back and just sits there. Then she asks me "How did you become a citizen?" with this attitude in her voice. That is kind of rude to ask. I have always been an American citizen. So I guess I became one by being born! It pisses me off. It is one thing to be asked where you where born and another to be asked how you became and American citizen. Especially when all your info is displayed on the screen in front of them as they scan your ID. Just because half the people who work at the border have "green cards" does not mean that all the people crossing the border have them.

My husband being the white boy he is gets pissed off at the border patrol's agents attitudes every time we cross. He like can't they see I am white? We also notice that the attitudes can vary greatly by what car you are in. It is definitely different crossing with my parents (who have "green cards") and my husband(white boy). I don't even get asked anything when I cross with my husband. The worst is when they get angry with you over not understanding their thick accent! If you ask them to repeat a question they basically yell it at you and just keep asking questions which you have to try to figure out by the words you did understand or things just get worst. Not everyone has an accent but the ones that do act like they speak perfect english and should never be asked to repeat.

The power goes to their heads! They act like they are doing the most amazing job. The lady today did not even notice the two kids in the back in their car seats. They where quite obviously there. The car seats are huge and they where wearing these big coats and eating ice cream back there. I could have been smuggling 10 illegals in the back seat and cargo area and she would not have noticed. She was too busy sitting on her stool being crotchety to do her job correctly. She was just concerned with not having to move out of her stool to scan the cards of the people who's heads where peeping out the windows. If I would have left my window shut would she not have even bothered with me?

Halloween

Wednesday night my husband and I went to a club called Blood and Glitter at the Beauty Bar. I made a hot pink tutu to go under a black one I made before. I wore a corset and a lace tank top underneath. I made the bracelet on my right hand. I need something for my hair for a huge party we are going to on Saturday and new fishnets since I already ripped those. I also want to try to find something to cover my arms. A little shrug or something. I wore some hot pink pistol earrings I got in my Sampler this month. That is what inspired me to make the hot pink tutu and made me go crazy trying to find a pink top to go under my black corset.


Sick, Sick, Sick

The only thing worst than being sick myself is having two sick kids! Alejandro (4) went to the doctor today for the 3rd time since last Friday. He has been throwing up and lost 8 percent of his body weight. They gave him a shot(7th poke since Friday) to control the vomiting and if he wasn't better by tomorrow the doctor said to take him to the ER. The shot worked great and he was able to keep down food and drink by the end of the day luckily.

So the only thing he wanted to eat was orange chicken so I took Anabella (2) to pick up some sweet and sour chicken. Its all the same to him and the doctor said the more sugar the better. While we where there my daughter started sneezing and coughing and her nose got all runny and has a full blown cold now.

Tomorrow is going to drive me nuts!

My Sampler is Here!

I got my Sampler. It was a really fat one this time. I really like the mini memo board and can't wait to try the body butter. I have not really had a chance to look at everything. I just opened it and set it all out before I mess up all the packaging.

Baskets

I really love these baskets I am going to have to buy some when my kids move into their new room.
