We spent almost a week in Kansas to celebrate Christmas. I didn’t eat as much as I usually do because I was really focused on NOT EATING.
That’s the thing about vacations, I tend to let loose and regret it after. I need to really discipline myself and not over indulge.
My time in Kansas is relaxing. This is what my day consists of:
Wake up and eat breakfast. Take a nap and eat lunch. Take another nap and eat dinner.
Then I go to bed.
My husband is a homebody so he enjoys doing nothing. Which makes sense because he’s home and I’m sure all he wants to do is sit on the couch like he used to before he moved to LA and veg out. I get cabin fever. I hate doing nothing and being awake…I will eat everything. That is why I resorted to taking a nap.
The last day was most enjoyable since we went shooting. My favorite hobby. Only if we had better ranges in LA… need to make friends with people who have membership to outdoor ranges.

Tyler’s 2nd to last football game and I had to go since I barely saw him in October. My son is so athletic and quick. He may be small but he is aggressive and loves sports. He dreams to be a pro football player one day and though I may not wish that upon my child, I guess I will support him. My worry will be that he will get hurt and be out of commission for the rest of his life! We’ll see if he likes it in high school. Being small, he may not like getting shoved around when flags aren’t involved.
My husband turn 30 few weekends ago. I asked him what he wanted to do and he said, “I want to go to Kansas.”
So here we were! With his family and friends and enjoying his birthday as if we lived here!
It was relaxing and nice. My gf JL and her bf JH came from NY to celebrate it with us.
Happy 30th Bear!
My uncle retired and we had a huge family dinner at an AYCE sushi joint in Torrance! It’s always nice to be around family and spend quality time amidst our hectic schedules! The kids got to play with each other and the cousins got to catch up! I love my family and always so happy to see them!!
It was the grand opening of the observation deck at #SkySpace #USBankTower in DTLA. I had it in my calendar months ago for the slide and about two weeks prior, I went on the site to get tickets. I wished I had a go pro but I didn’t need one at all. I was upset at the fact that we weren’t able to hold anything (phone) in our hands while sliding down. The cool part about it was that they took a photo of you coming down the slide. Just like at an amusement park! When we had all came down, we went to the kiosk to look at the photos. Of course, mine was the only one that wasn’t showing. They tried to mess with it for over 15 minutes and then I asked to speak to a manager. I nicely said, “I waited in line for over an hour and paid $30 to go down a slide and not be able to get a photo? I’d like to go down again.” He obliged and took me back to the slide, cut in front of the crowd and I got to go on again! This time, my photo came out! I was most appreciative of their accommodation and so happy that we as a family got to experience such an amazing part of our city. The space is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Even my husband who’s scared of heights enjoyed the visit. I can’t wait to come again and go down the slide over and over again when there is no line!
Saw my friend Catalina and her children on VR and I’ve been contemplating about what to get him. This would be a great buy for him and for me since it’s not that expensive!!

Always a bittersweet moment. I love having him around and miss him dearly as soon as I drop him off but then again I look forward to some alone time. But no matter what, Tyler is always on my mind. I am always thinking of him every minute of the day, wondering how he’s doing or what he’s doing and thinking about if he’s thinking of me too… the best part about being apart is when he texts or calls me!
Tyler and I had a really great weekend together. I enjoy picking him up on Fridays even though I have to sit in traffic for 2-3 hours from BH to South OC. But that extra night I get to have him under the same roof means a lot. He’s growing so fast and any time spent away from each other is detrimental to our relationship. It’s crazy because one week we’ll get along great and he’ll go home happy. The next weekend, I will yell and be upset and he won’t go home happy, neither will I. But I understand. There are times I can’t always be the #partimemom and do whatever he wants. I still need to put my foot down and do my part as if I was a #fulltimemom. I can’t let him slide on things because I will not allow him to get away with things because I see him on the weekends.
It’s difficult. I will say the most difficult part is the fact that I can implement mannerisms and behaviors that I think he should learn and carry as he gets older because I don’t see him that often. I don’t get to use the good that I’ve learned growing up to make sure that he has the same upbringing. And as much as it’s unfair, it’s also fair. I realized that no matter how the situation would be, there will never be a fair way to raise a child with divorced parents. One person will always feel like they get the short end of the stick. And i think I’ve come to just accept that fact. Once it’ll be me, another time it’ll be my first husband. (But I feel like it’s me most of the time! :P)
