I Miss My Mom

(originally posted on LiveJournal) I think that about a dozen times each day – I miss my mom. But I really miss her right now. Jack started throwing up right before bed time. Eggs. It may have something to do with the fact that he ate ice off of the floor of McDonald’s last night. … Continue reading

Disneyland Day Four

(originally posted on LiveJournal) It’s been several days, but I don’t want to forget too much. I brought my “real” journal to write in, but couldn’t really do so in the dark. Monday was our final day at the parks. We had a character breakfast with Lilo and Stitch. I finally got my cake with … Continue reading

Disneyland Day Three

(originally posted on LiveJournal) Most of Sunday was, unfortunately, a lowlight. You see, Jack started the day by whining. He wanted to go on a ride, then he didn’t. We essentially dragged him on to every ride in Fantasyland, and he enjoyed each ride, but he still whined. We ate lunch, then I took Jack … Continue reading

Disneyland Day Two

I had never been to California Adventure. The last time we were here was 2000, and it was still being built. It was all right. … Continue reading

Watching Jack get into getting autographs of the characters. The new It’s a Small World. Finally getting to go on the submarine. Main Street Mocha … Continue reading

We Are At Disney

(originally posted on LiveJournal) We’re in our room at the Disneyland Hotel. Highlights of today: Jack announcing, “We live at Disney!” Jack donning his Mickey ears as soon as we got to the hotel. Jack actually going into the “big pool” with me. Jack being brave and asking the lifeguard if he could sit with … Continue reading

Disney Plans

(originally posted on LiveJournal) This is some figuring for our trip to Disneyland. We thought we’d rent a car and drive down, that it would be cheaper. Maybe not. Let’s see… Super Shuttle: $104 round trip. This is the only option from Long Beach. Disneyland Express: $66 round trip. Available from LAX and Orange County. … Continue reading

I hate Quicken on the Mac…

(originally published on LiveJournal) Can you recommend something else? I need something that’s meant to be a budgeting program that can import the data I have in Quicken. It doesn’t have to be free, but inexpensive would be nice.Quicken is a PITA on the Mac. I can’t automatically reconcile accounts with the bank because it … Continue reading
