Wow, what a day. Have you ever had "one of those days". Where it doesn't matter what you do, everything goes wrong. I hate those days :) Hubby and I got in an argument last night (he likes to call them "discussions", but I know what they are - LOL!). It's all worked out now, but geesh, I hate fighting. And it's always about STUPID things. Dumb little things that aren't even worth fighting about.
So, we weren't speaking when we woke up, and I ALMOST didn't go to church. Which if you know me, that's HUGE. I ALWAYS go to church. Kids have to be REALLY sick for me to stay home. I was just feeling bad. I realized later that I was feeling a bit lonely for my friends I'd left in Oregon. I had a REALLY fun group of girls that I hung out with there (and my BFF Maren!!!), and didn't like the idea of having to start all over again.
Church was nice, and I was really glad that I went. The kids were well behaved during Sacrament meeting, and were excited about meeting their teachers and their "new friends". A really nice lady named, um, I think it was Amy, introduced herself to me during Sunday School, and she even sat with us. She seemed pretty nice. She gave me her number, and said that she'd show me around town. Now, I just have to get my courage up and call her. You all know that I'm SUPER shy, and HATE making phone calls, right? HUGE phon-a-phobic. See, you didn't know that about me, did you - hehehehe.
Relief Society was nice. The lady doing the lesson passed out chocolate, which is always good - hehehe. I never quite understood that one, though. Serving in Primary (the childrens organization) for years, we were always told not to hand out food of any kind to the kids. And yet in Young Womens and Relief Society, they're getting treats and such ALL the time. Hmmmm, little bit of a double standard, wouldn't you say - I'm just saying.....
After church, Captain America was talking to someone in the chapel, and I gathered up all the kids. They were wild, and ready to go home. Jacobs teacher came up and said that she was glad that he was in her class, and that the boys were all WILD and making paper airplanes and being too crazy. Nice. Just what a mom wants to hear on the first day of Primary. We had a little chit chat on the way home, needless to say :)
Tom and Joe were fighting. Something about bumping heads, and then Joe karate kicking Tom in the leg - I don't know - I didn't get all the details. At that point, I hurriedly gathered all the kdis, and took them to the truck. I THOUGHT that Captain America would get the hint that I'd left, and come out too, but, you know men. They TOTALLY don't get hints. I'm sure he just thought that it was much quieter all of a sudden - geesh!
So, we sat in the truck for about 10 minutes and waited for him to finish his conversation and come on out. We had the "proper Sunday behavior" talk on the way home from church, and praised the ones that actually were following those rules :)
I don't think it was until about 4:00 that Captain America and I finally made up. I just HATE fighting. It's so draining. And such a waste of time. There's got to be a better way :) But, all's good now.
We managed to salvage the rest of the day. We all had dinner together, then gave the kids hair cuts. Captain America does SUCH a better job than I do - LOL! I'm not as picky on the outcome as he is - hehehehe.
The kids all got baths/showers, and went to bed at 8:30, all ready for their first day of school. And Captain America and I were able to spend a nice quite evening together.
You know, for as mad as he can make me, he can make me equally as happy. But everyone fights, right? It's not just me? You all get upset with your hubbys from time to time? Surely it's not just me :) But you know, even when I'm the maddest at him, I still wouldn't want anyone else. I think that boys are just had to deal with sometimes. Or maybe it's that they don't know how to deal with girls. Yeah, that's it. LMBO!
Sorry about my downer post today - hehehehe. I really am feeling much better, though. I bet that today will be a fantastic day!
Check out these WAY cool posters (ok, so maybe I'm thinking their a little more cool than maybe they actually are - LMBO!!) (oh yeah, Ann, that means Laughing My Butt Off) that I made for my friend Brooke. She's the Activities Chairperson for the Florence Ward (where I used to attend church), and LOVED the posters that I made for her for the Christmas Party, so asked if I would help out with the posters for the Valentine's Party. What a great idea for a dance! I SO wanna go - but I'm NOT making that drive again, even if your dance is gonna be WAY fun.
I liked the way that this one turned out. My first attempts wasn't so good - hehehe. It's funny how my WordArt evolves until I have it JUST right. But sometimes in the designing process, I just wanna scrap the whole thing. I'm glad I didn't this time. I like my finished product :) Click on the image below to go to my box.net account to download the PNG file, and leave some love if you like my work.
