After that, I busted out the sewing machine, and started up again (ok, so you caught me, i didn't "bust" it out, I'd never cleaned up the mess from the last few days - hehehe - don't tell me mom how messy my house is :) I sewed 2 vests for Jimmy, and then Captain America came home. I was able to check my email, and do some brief "work" stuff, then straight to the showers.
We went onto post, stopping first at El Taco Tote to pick up a quick bite to eat. We made it to our appointment at 1:30, to make up a Will. I feel better now that that's done. We got to pick up the final copy next week, and sign it. Mom, if something happens to Captain America and I, you get to handle our money. :) And Paul and Carol, you get to decide what happens to the kids. That way, both sets of Grandparents will have to work together, and my kids are guaranteed to be involved with them. Well, that's the plan, at least. Well, I guess the plan is for Captain America and I NOT to die at the same time, leaving minor children. Yeah, that's a better plan - LOL!
Jimmy fell asleep in the car on the way to Legal, and he was SNORING when we brought him into the waiting room - LOL! Do your little kids snore? I have 2 (the 3 and the 5 yr old) that are SO loud. It's embarassing, really - hehehe. He was sleeping so soundly on my shoulder, that I got a GIANT drool mark there. Nice. I though the drooling on my shirt stage had left me - hehehe.
After legal, we headed over to the Battalion office, where Captain America had to check in. We visited with the Captain (she likes Jimmy - but then, who doesn't - hehehe), and one of Captain America's ... um ... buddies. Is that what you call soldier friends? Anyway, after that, we headed back toward home to pick up the truck. It was all finished Tuesday, not Monday like we first thought. Then we finally headed for home.
The big kids were already home, and Jacob had given them their snacks, and had read scriptures with them, and they were just starting on their chores. Good job, Jacob! Although the younger ones weren't too thrilled that he had them doing their chores - hehehe.
We made sure everything was under control, then headed off to the store, taking Joe and Jim with us. We first went to the tire place, and had them look at our front tires. They were almost out of life, and we ordered new ones. Boy, does the tax money go fast :)
Next, we went to Verizon, and got an additional line on our plan. I figured that if I was gonna let Jacob babysit, he needed a "home phone". Not safe to leave people at home without one. Currently, I'm leaving my phone with him, and Captain America takes his phone with him, so we can keep in contact. But when Captain America goes back to Benning in April, we'll only have one phone, and I won't leave kids home without one. SO, for $10 a month, we can have a "home phone". It was made for old people, so it have big buttons, and is SUPER easy to use. It even had a charging cradle that comes with it. JUST like a landline.
Then, we headed to Wal-Mart. I needed new sewing machine needles (I was on my last one, and I was just SURE it was gonna break before I got new ones, but it didn't - pfew!), buttons, and a few other things.
Back home, dinner, kids to bed, and a LOT more sewing. I made Jimmy another shirt (he's now got 2 vests, 2 shirts, 2 pants), fixed the crotch of Toms pants (blow-out last season), made myself an apron, and made myself a bonnett. And I was POOPED!!! I headed upstairs at 10:45, and still hadn't posted anything for Wednesday. Sigh. No rest for the wicked - hehehe.
And you know what? I really had every intention of dressing up the kids in all of their various outfits, and even trying on mine, and taking pictures. But, if just ran out of time. And by the time I dragged my sorry butt upstairs, I was WAY too tired to even care - hehehe. Sorry, you guys. I'll try harder today :) I think. LMBO!
