I'm a stay-at-home-mom of 2 beautiful boys, married, and I enjoy scrapbooking and watching tv/movies. Came to the bay area in 1997 from NJ.

Logan's school walkathon today. I hope we can recover quickly so we can car shop tomorrow. Life is on fast-forward right now.
Walkathon for us today as well! Also hoping the kids don't try to do too much. I'm such a bad parent. :) - Steve and 4 other people
#ThrowOutThursday - 1 minivan - 1 purse that is shedding black plastic flakes all over the place - 1 toddler toilet set
That is one full hefty bag. - Steve C Team Marina
Totally! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Who could top a minivan? :-D - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
I think I may need to join you on your Throw Out Thursday's! - Melly - #TeamMarina
@Melly - #TeamMarina: Do it!!!! Every little bit makes a difference! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
$65 to find out if we have $1700 or $2900 in repairs. Time to move on?
'99 Chevy Venture 119,000 miles. Is this repair the beginning of the end? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I've got a '97 minivan. I asked the mech before pouring money in it. It was his opinion that if I did the repairs, there were still years of good life left in it. If you like your car, if a reputable mech tells you the repairs will take care of things for a good while, that it has life left in it, then it's certainly cheaper than buying another car. - Spidra Webster
How many monthly payments in a new (or newer) ride is the repair and will repair give you that much useful life out of your old ride. - WarLord
'99 Chevy Venture 119,000 miles. We got it for $1 about 6 years ago. I can't roll down the windows, no cup holders for the front passengers, radio only (cassette player stopped working last spring), windshield cracked... I think we're ready to move on. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
$1400 blue book value. Ugh. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
$65 to find out if we have $1700 or $2900 in repairs. Time to move on?
For a car? I'd get an informed opinion on how many more years you can get out of the car if it gets the repairs. - Spidra Webster
It depends. I've put that much money into a car. - Eric - It's My Thing
Oops. Dbl posted. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Yesterday was pretty sucktastic on so many levels. For now, we are a 1-car family. Let's hope the transmission fix isn't too costly!
I can now add Goat Wrestler to my resume. These guys were in it to win it! - Happy Hollow Park & Zoo

It's #ThrowOutThursday again! What should I attack today?
garage? - Tamara J. B.
Recipes - Janet from FFHound!
Shoes! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
linen closet! - Lnorigb
I donated about 10 kids' books to Logan's school for the Walk-a-thon next week. I returned a box of hand-me-down clothes to a friend. I threw out a cracked kid's cup. I spent some time putting together a new couch and gathering documents for a potential refinance. Not as rewarding as past weeks, but I'm happy I was able to do SOMETHING. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Nailed it!

Luke: I'm not the only person who's going to die in this house! Me: O.o
I just scheduled 3 doctors' appointments for myself and still need to schedule 1 more. To say I've been neglecting my health is a bit of an understatement.
Great start to getting back to keeping yourself healthy. - Janet from FFHound!
Good job, Yvonne. - Stephen Mack
If course 1 got rescheduled already. :-/ - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Luke just busted out his first "I hate you." I'm heartbroken. =(
:( - Janet from FFHound!
The Heaviest Catch on Sesame Street. LOL!
Is 30% chance of rain a good reason to drive to school?
Nope! When I was walking the kids to Ellis (oh how I miss them going to a school they could walk to), I found that a little rain meant all the parents at my kids' school went completely nuts and the traffic was insane. So I vowed to always walk, rain or shine, and just take the umbrella and have us all sing Singing In The Rain and enjoy it. - Stephen Mack
If it was just Logan, I could probably get away with it, but I also take my neighbor's 2 kids. Wednesday's are USUALLY walking days since it's also garbage day and 1/2 the street parking spots are taken up by garbage cans. But this morning, my neighbor offered to drive the kids so I was off the hook, but I didn't get my steps in. Grrrr... - Yvonne Renee
My hands are so messed up right now. A couple of weeks ago I got an infection in my cuticle on my left ring finger. Now my nailbed is effed up. Then I accidentally cut my middle finger with scissors. THEN I went nuts and bit off other nails. My fingertips hurt, my nailbed is exposed, and the cut on my finger hurts. I want to redo the last 24hrs.
That sounds horrible!' - Janet from FFHound!
Gah :( Sorry. - Stephen Mack
Oof. And you get reminded of how effed up your hands are, every time you need to do something (especially washing your hands or washing dishes). - vicster: full-bodied
I know. =( I really need to break this habit. =( - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Ouch! - Tamara J. B.
Logan has a case of the Mondays today. Can't say I blame him. #fallishere
A friend of mine in San Francisco has started an online community where families can meet others with similar needs and interests. I invite you to check it out! http://www.avillage.us/
It's Walk & Roll to School Week! I'm hoping to bump up my daily steps after this. =)
Watch out Stephen Mack. :-) - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Bring it! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Dude, Stephen has TWICE my steps a day! Don't think my Little Foot that Could can do THAT much walking. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I can confirm Yvonne walked to school the last two days. She even walked me home yesterday and kept going! - Louis Gray
LOL! Are you spying on me? =) - Yvonne Renee
Obviously. - Louis Gray
Day 3! Louis Gray verified. Lol! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Day 4 verified! - Louis Gray
Day Fii... I have no idea. I had to drive Braden to preschool. #grumble #mumble - Louis Gray
Busted! I'm less than 800 steps from 70,000 for the last 7 days. That's GOT to be the highest 7 day total for me all year! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I walked the kids to school today again. I'm D R A G G I N! #soeffingtired #ifyouneedmeillbeasleepintheshower

At least you made it out the house for a lil while! Woot! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
It's true! Just getting that walk in first thing in the morning is a big deal for me. I'm usually a lounge around in pjs for as long as possible person. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
All the extra walking this week is making me T I R E D. Dishes, laundry, staying awake past 9:30pm... you'll just have to wait until the weekend. Yawn
Oh. And my foot hurts. =( - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Oh no. Just fatigue or reinjured? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Over-worked. Hopefully my foot will adapt to my new normal. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Just take it easy, please. No running marathons quite yet, love. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Fortunately for my foot, running a marathon is not on my bucket list. Lol! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
#ThrowOutThursday is here! I spent some time last night cleaning up the top of my dresser and recycled some old, outdated papers. It's not much, but it was something!
I tossed foods in the snack drawer that were opened and no one could rmbr when they opened. then cleaned the drawer. Also I may have ate the last bag of micro popcorn while I was at it. - Lnorigb
Yay! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I went through Marina's clothes and sorted out another batch for donations. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
I feel incredibly lame right now. I was invited to a dinner event by my alma mater called State of Stevens. It's an opportunity to meet the new school president as well as other alumni plus learn about the strategic plan and the latest research and achievements by students and faculty. It sounds REALLY interesting, I just don't want to go...
I don't want to be surrounded by strangers. I don't want to pretend that I belong in that world any more. My husband thinks it's good practice, and he's right, but I can't. I just can't. - Yvonne Renee
So I emailed and said I couldn't make it. Strange that I don't feel better about having made that decision. I'm just so tired and now on top of that I feel lame. =( - Yvonne Renee
I know exactly what you mean. In my opinion, if it seems really daunting, you probably know that it's too much for you. Maybe you would feel less bad (guilty? that's how I usually feel) if you gave yourself a small "make up" task to do? - Heather
Don't make yourself wrong, Yvonne. The perfect event will come when it's time. - Corinne L
Thanks, guys. I think I'll wait for a less formal event to come along. I'll need to find a way to dip my toes back in and not jump in with both feet. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Post-Craft Day hangover. yawn.
Post-craft beer day hangover is a different matter. - Joe
Totally. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I signed up to scrapbook ALL DAY TODAY from 9-midnight at a nearby scrapbook store. It's now 9:25 and I'm so tired I haven't left the house yet. I wonder if there's a napping area at the store... yawn.
I need to get dressed, choose my stuff to bring, load up the car... I'm so tired just thinking about it. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
AND! I can't post on fb because I turned down a weekend scrapping in Sonoma with friends. Too far. Too much money. Too much advance planning for food, etc. Today's event is more my speed. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
10:25 - motivating towards door... more coffee in hand... yawn - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
11:25... Made it! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Enjoy the time! - Anne Bouey
Have fun! - Tamara J. B.
Find a hotel, check in for the entire day, and sleep. ;-) No one has to know. - Mary Carmen
Mary- I love the way you think! Trust me, I thought of that. Lol! I also thought about a manicure, eyebrow waxing, a movie... haha! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Ugh. Starting a long, hot day with a headache. awesome.
Ugh, that is the pits :( - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
Ick. I'm hoping to hold off the heat headache that I usually get after a couple of days of this kind of weather. I hope your headache retreats soon. - vicster: full-bodied
2 massive cups of coffee later... =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
:( I hope your headache is gone soon. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
The coffee kicked it. Phew! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
For #ThrowOutThursday this week, I FINALLY bought the last item on the school supply list so I could get ALL of the items out of my house. Ahhhh! Huge sigh of relief. =)
Beanbags with personality. Lol!

Side note: How are you getting ffhound to work? Not updated to iOS 8 yet? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Nope. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Ugh... Have to reschedule a hair appointment at the last minute because Luke has a terrible cold and my friend/sitter has a baby and is kind of a germaphobe. Bummer.
Bummer! :( - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
STOP! Shower time!
You can't wash this. - Stephen Mack
2 Armpits 2 Quit? - Big Joe Silence
Now that school is in full swing, I really need a weekly plan. I'm feeling a bit sluggish.
Like a wet sponge. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Slugs are totally different species than sponges you can't be both woman. :) - Steve C Team Marina
I was quoting Airplane. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
