After they left at 7:20, Jimmy, Captain America and I got ready to head onto post. We were meeting with Legal Aid to see what our options were housewise. But first, we dropped off our Surburban at the car fixing place. The rear differencial was bad, and it needed a new rear end (yeah, I have NO idea what I'm talking about, I'm just spitting back what Captain America told me - hehehe). Then we headed onto post.
Captain America had to check in at the Battalion office at 9am, and that took about 30 minutes. Jimmy and I hung out in the car. I chatted with my mom for a little while on the phone, and Jimmy ate his homemade trail mix snack. Sorry about the mess in the car, hon.
We then took one of our computer towers over to the repair shop. $65 just to look at it. Holy crap! That's SO expensive. BUT, Captain America had some family history information on it, and really wanted it off of it. SO, hopefully it won't be too much to fix. Or we'll just get the report of what needs fixed, and have either Nathaniel (Captain America's brother) walk us through it, or Joe (my sisters hubby). They're both computer wizzes. Fun thing, when we were there, the man was looking at it, telling us it was dirty, and maybe that's why it was having issues. He was like, "did you know there's a cherrio back here". Nice. Jim must have slipped one in while in the backseat at the Battalion office (cherrios in the trail mix) - nice.
Next, we went to GNC at the PX (army mall) to buy some vitamin supplements. Captain America found a site online that showed some good suppliments for improved breathing. Seems to be working, so far :)
We headed off to our appointment at legal aid at 10:30. The lady was SUPER nice, and had a few options for us. Finances are NOT fun to deal with. Sigh. Being rich was obvisously not a trial that I needed to have in this life - LMBO!
After Legal, we headed back to the PX for lunch. I also stopped by the Exchange (kinda like Wal-Mart on post, but you don't have to pay sales tax) and bought Joe a "Leap Pad" alphabet thingy. It's a little fridge magnet thing, where you put a letter on it, and it sings "A - A says ahhhh, and A say AAAA, Every letter makes a sound, A says ahhhh and A". Jimmy was THRILLED with it. He tested it out quite a bit. Joe needed a little bit of extra help learning his letters, and I thought this would be a fun way to learn.
After lunch, we headed back to the Battalion office for the 1pm check in. More waiting in the car (this time, though, we had a toy to play with - hehehe). When Captain Americawas done, we headed back home. Jimmy fell asleep on the way, so when we got home, I had about an hour and a half of un-interrupted sewing time.
I got buttons sewed on a few shirts and a vest, pants fixed, and Joe got a new pair of pants. Now, Joe has 2 shirts, and 2 pants, and a vest. Jimmy has 2 pants, 1 shirt (so I need one more shirt, and a vest for him).
I also did some designing before the big kids got home from school. 2 more WordArt packs for Friday. Woohoo!!!
After dinner, we had Family Home Evening, and after that, we all played Superman Uno. It was fun, but not as fun as Batman Uno - hehehe. The Kriptionite card kinda slowed the game down. When it's played, everyone else has to either lay down a green or a wild. If they can't, they have to draw 3 cards. It kept the game going, and going, and going. Oh well :) Family time is family time, I guess.
After the kids went to bed, I got 2 more WordArt packs done. I meant to stop at 9, and go watch Medium, but I forgot - hehehe. I'll have to watch it tomorrow online. And Heroes too. LOVE that one :) Monday night is good TV :)
Today is, hopefully, my sewing day. Oh drat. I just remembered that we have ANOTHER meeting with Legal. But in the afternoon. We're drawing up a will. That's always a good thing to have when you have 5 kids - hehehe. But I should be able to get some sewing done in the morning. I need to make a list of what I still need to do. Lists are my friend! Ha!
Hopefully I'll get some pics of the kids in their outfits today. Then I can post them for you all tomorrow. They're just SO adorable. My kids, that is. The outfits are passable - my sewing skills leave MUCH to be desired, but they're ok. Just don't get to close - hehehe. They're good from a distance. But then, I don't really want people getting that close to me, anyway. Ha! I have a LARGE personal space bubble - hehehe. At least with strangers - ha! (how do I keep getting off on these RANDOM tangents ???)
So, on to WordArt :)
And, just so you know, I've fixed the spelling mistake in yesterdays "Life" wordart. You won't notice it, really. I had to look REALLY hard to find it, and that was after it was pointed out to me - hehehe. The beauty of having a LOT of words in there - it's had to spot a mistake - hehehe. SO, all of the links from yesterday have updated files, as of 10pm MST. So, if you downloaded it before that, you got the "Point of light" instead of "Points of light" version - ROFL! Sorry about that, girls!
Here's part 2. I just LOVED this one - I could envision layouts of moms (or dads, or siblings, or family memebers) holding little ones, rocking them to sleep - awe, so adorable! I can just see them now :) Makes me want another little one...... ok, maybe not - LMBO! I guess that's when you know you're really done with having kids - hehehe. Baby fever is DEFINITELY done at our house :) OK, where did THAT tangent come from - :)
