the IPhone curse

*****Long wordy story alert*****
So we all know what happened to my last phone.....urine bath courtesy of Davy and my boys never flushing the toilet. I was able to borrow a hand me down cracked phone, thanks to My Mom in law. Thank you Nancy, it was better then no phone.
 Well for Mother's day Scott surprised me and got me a new phone. He called around and traveled far to buy me one that wasn't $$. He even got me a waterproof and shuck proof case, cuz we couldn't get insurance cuz it wasn't a new phone. Oh, it was the best gift ever. I was SOO happy.
I am completely dependent on my phone.....I  learned this the hard way. It reminded me of Davy's appointments, I never get lost(thanks Google maps), it's my camera and video camera, a babysitter for Harper and much much more.
Well my new phone lasted all of 6 days. S I X D A Y S!!
Last Friday I met Scott in LA after his meetings, to go to a friends Art show. Well i got there a little early, so I thought I would hit up the 50% off sale at Urban Outfitters(cuz I'm a sucker for a sale). I do regret this now.
So as I was in line, a Lady next to me, reached in her purse for her wallet and noticed her phone was gone. I knew this cuz she said, MY PHONE IS GONE.
I had a notsogood feeling. I looked in my purse and my phone was gone too!! It was a total theft ring going down at Urban. I called Scott(from someone elses phone) and told him to use find my IPhone, but these guys were pros and the turned my phone off immediately.
Believe it or not Scott got his phone stolen a month ago and we got it back using find my IPhone.
But my precious was not coming back to me.
So I sat in front of the store and cried and waited for Scott to come and meet me. The night was ruined, I just wanted to go home.
 The moral of the story is....... always get the insurance on your phone and teach your kids to flush and close the lid on the toilet.
   The End

P.S I do have a phone again, with insurance.

My life lately

 Life has been busy, really busy. So I thought I'd catch you up.
*Currently Davy is sick. She has been fighting something since Thursday. But we are not in the Hospital, so that is the good part. But man is she miserable. The poor thing got a staph infection. She had blisters all over her body and a fever. So painful. But she is on her way back to healthy.
* We have not found a house yet. So in June we will for sure be moving in with the in-laws. I know the day that I leave my Lil house I will be a wreck, so have patience with me. I really need to start packing up, but i am in moving denial.
* Max is now a boy scout, which means overnight camp outs, which means anxiety attack for Mom. I was so worried. But he did great and he had a blast.
* Oliver broke his arm in P.E. Before you start feeling sorry for him, know that it was the best day of his life. He loves the attention. He also failed his hearing test at school. Which makes sense cuz I feel like he never hears a word I'm saying. So we will be seeing an audiologist in the near future.
* Scott has been really busy working on a bunch of new projects. I will fill you in on that later.
* Harper has been playing baseball, or more like laying on the grass and picking weeds. I don't think he has the attention span for it. I think he is more suited for soccer.
                                                    and now for the pictures....

Transmission LA

 Over the weekend Scott and I went to this radical art show at the MOCA called Transmission LA.  It was curated by Mike D(beastie boys).  It was so very fantastic, especially cuz Scott was asked to create an installation for it.
 So the deal was, there were the actual contributing artists and then for one night they asked a bunch of different people to create installations and show them on an empty space of wall around the museum. It was very very cool. They also had  Diplo DJ and the koji truck outside for food.
Scott looped a video of random kid show characters(what else), with randomness in between. I was so very proud of him. It turned out really good. Thanks to Colt and Craig for helping him get it done in time. It was worth the sleepless night.

                                    We thought we'd pose cheesily in front of it.

 Seriously, who is this guy? If you ever want to know what goes n in Scott's mind, watch his installation. Some wacky stuff.
This was one of my favorites, it was by artists, Ara Petersen and Jim Drain. It was a hallway of fan driven spinning wheels, I could have stared at it for hours. I wanted to somehow take it home with me. I think I could have hypnotized my kids with them for sure.
I would tell you to go down to the MOCA right now and see this exhibit but it was the closing weekend, soooorrryy. But you can go here and read about it.

After the art show we headed to an arcade and then to a Karaoke bar. Which I haven't done in a loooong time. It was so much fun, but we did have good company. I sang a little Justin Timberlake, while Scott chose something on the soft sides......air supply. It's actually  a little no fair cuz Scott can really sing. while I sound tone deaf . But I had a good time regardless.
So do you have a favorite song to sing  when you Karaoke? Come on give it up........
