American Idol Blog Trouble

I am alive. This STUPID laptop hates my blog and freezes every time I try to post pictures. That's why I haven't had any posts and the posts I have made, lack photos. Eventually I will get to my desktop and add the photos.
We have been so busy and things are not going to be slowing down. I know many of you are much busier than I am... I guess your just better at managing your time. :)
Right now I am in San Francisco. I am at The Westin, watching American Idol and trying to get Mama's Boy to GO TO BED!! This boy does NOT want to sleep in the crib at this hotel. The Boss had a big presentation to do last night, so when Mama's Boy woke up at 2am and wouldn't fall back to sleep, I took him in the stroller and walked around with him until 6:30am (so the boss, and our hotel room neighbors, could get some sleep). After walking around for 3 1/2 hours, I was confident he was completely out (about time!) so we came back into the hotel room where I left him asleep in his stroller until 9:30am. I was so freaking tired!! Then, (this is how wacky this kid is), he takes a 2 hour nap in the crib at 11am. I took him shopping for 5 HOURS, and he was nearly PERFECT! Now, it's almost 9pm, he's been sitting in the crib for over an hour and refuses to fall asleep. I am going to go CRAZY!!! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! At least I have my American Idol. Which is sorta sucking tonight.
PS- The Boss surprised me last Wednesday morning and took me to Pismo Beach for 3 days, as part of my Valentine's Day gift! So sweet! And much needed!! It was so fun... we needed a few more days. I'll do a post next week after we get back from the cabin and I'll put some pictures up. I promise!! No... I don't.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

So, I know I have been so sporadic with my blogs... I'm sorry! I almost NEVER turn on our upstairs computer, I usually wait for The Boss to get home and I use his laptop. For some reason this laptop does NOT like my blog... so sad... I know. It just doesn't want to load. It takes FOREVER to load and then won't let me sign in. Anyway, I've been VERY frustrated! But today, I made it!!
Our Valentine's Day was great! I threatened The Boss with his LIFE that he better NOT spend too much money. We have a budget now (that's an entirely different post) and I have to threaten him into abiding by it. Anyway... to kick off Valentine's Day, we went to dinner and a movie with the Thompson's. We ate at Cheesecake Factory, where I seriously had the BEST orange chicken EVER! It was soooooo worth it!! We were running late in order to catch the movie so The boss was upset he didn't have time for his Cheesecake... (again, another post entirely). We went and saw "He's just not that into you", which was funny, but was very very very PG-13. That's all I'll say about that. Then we went back to the Thompsons and played "Trains" where of course I won!! :)
To continue, my real Valentine's wish was to sleep in on Saturday... of course... impossible. We went to my parents for my mom's "Family Valentine's Day Dinner" with red ice-cubes and everything! It was fun and of course very very YUMMY!! Then The Boss and I had to chaperon the youth dance, which was fun, but not exactly romantic. But that's okay. We had a great one and we hope all of you did too! Man how things change when you have kids... right?
