Happy Belated Birthday to Tia Elia!

So sorry tia that I missed your birthday. I had not looked in my list recently. I guess life is so hectic lately. Nevertheless, I hope that you had a wondeful day and that you will have a fantastic year ahead. We love you lots!

Smile power

Ok, so today has been pretty busy for me although right now, I am at home and quite content. I worked 4 hours. Then, picked up Austin from school to take him to the Dentist to take two baby teeth out. By the way, he did sooo well! I am so proud of him. Dentist's offices are not his favorite thing. Even the smell bothers him. I also found out at 7 a.m while at work, that Adam had not gone to school because he was coughing. Ruben was so kind and stayed home for a while to be able to take him to the doctor. It turns out that it's just a cold. No fever or redness of the throat, etc. So, I went to the Dentist with both boys and then we stopped at Walmart on our way home. I am trying to be good about gas and plan my trips a little better. Since I work in Corona, I can pass by Costco or Walmart on my way home and that way, I am saving gas. I have had to go to Corona twice today since both my job and the Dentist are there. Thankfully, I am home now and since it's so hot outside, I am glad to be in a cool atmosphere.

I still have to get some wall pictures. The other ones do not match anymore. I decided to change colors from blue to this crimson to add excitement to my life, lol!

Empty living room

The blue sofas are gone after 9 years of lots of use. Thankfully, Salvation Army picked up the old sofas. My living room is so big now....maybe I will keep it empty...NOT! It won't be too comfortable!

So close, yet soo far....

On my way home from work today, there was a huge accident in the freeway. I think it was a Big Rig that caught on fire. I was so close to the exit, but not close enough. I still had to wait one hour stopped in the freeway.

Taco Soup

I made this soup today. It's really good and spicy! Thanks to Leilani for sharing it on her website.

Taco Soup
optional diced onions
optional meat, preferably fake (TVP!)
1 can Rotel (tomatoes with chilies)
1 can diced tomatoes
3 cans beans (1 each of black, kidney, and pinto)
1 can corn
1 can water, if needed
1 pkg. taco seasoning
optional 1 pkg. Ranch dressing
optional cilantro
Saute onions and ‘meat’. Add all the ingredients, including the juices except for the can of black beans. Unless you like muddy looking soup. Let simmer for 1-2 hours until all the flavors come together. Great for the crockpot!
Garnish with cilantro and serve with a dollop of sourcream, tortilla chips, and/or grated cheese.
