Thought I'd share a few pics today :) Here Jake and Tom at the Cub Scout Meeting this past Wednesday, when we made Volcanos. They were SO cool :)
OK, this picture has a story. So, our friends from Chicago, who moved to Tennessee, started selling this Juice stuff. Yeah, I know. Sounds like a real great story so far - hehehe. Anyway, they said that they'd send us some when we got to our new house, and it came yesterday. It's supposed to be this "super drink" kinda stuff. Give you lost of energy or something. Yeah, it came with a DVD, but I haven't watched it yet. The bottle said to drink 1 oz two times a day. So, I had some this morning.
Don't know if it had to do with the juice or not, but I got into a SUPER cleaning/reorganizing mode (well, more reorganizing - hehehe). I decided that the weird closet/non-room off of my living room would be acceptable for a computer room. So, I cleared it out of all the junk that was in there, got the computer stuff ready to move. Then, I realized that there was no outlets in the room, and no cable box (to hook the internet up). Well, I could run an extension cord out the door, and 1 foot to the outlet. That part was an easy fix.
Then, I could run our SUPER long cable from clear on the other side of the room, to the little non-room (now to be referred to as the computer room - LOL!). I dug out the ladder from the garage, and climbed up it, to run the cable along the ridge in the ceiling/wall. Since the cord was white, it was disguised very nicely.
So, i got the computer moved into it's new room, and everything hooked up, and the internet wouldn't work. Dang! Now what??? I tried several times at pluging things in, and unhooking, and resetting thing, but with no luck. The cable was bad. Yep, the one I just braved the ladder to get perfectly in place.
So, Jimmy and I loaded up in the truck and headed out to ... yup ... Wal-Mart. Did you know that they have everything you could ever need?? ROFL!!! So, I got some groceries while I was at it, and the cable. Then, back home to re-string the new cable, and voila! Internet access.
Then, I rearranged my living room. I put the TV and videos in the computer nook, and moved the furniture around. I thought it looked pretty good :)
About 30 minutes before the kids got home from school, the repair guy came to fix the ice maker in the door of our fridge. It was missing a piece. SO, now we have ice at our fingertips. I seriously think it's my kids' favorite part of the house. Really. I'm not exaggerating. They LOVE it. The just get cups of ice to chew. I guess at least it's not chips and cookies, right?
Captain America called last night, and we got to chat on the webcam for a little while. Even though he's not here, it was good to see his face. Boy, do I miss that man...... Even when he's driving me crazy (I KNOW you know what I mean - how do men do that? LOL!) Less than a month to go :)
This WordArt request is from Kelly. Her 3rd grader is going to an elementary school dance with the boy down the street, and her 5th grade son pulled the boy aside, and told him he'd "gone over to the dark side" because he was taking a girl to the dance - ROFL!!! Isn't that hysterical :) Typical boy - LOL!
