After our early lunch, Andrea and I went to the Commissary to go grocery shopping. They were having a case lot sale (a big tent outside where they sell a lot of their items in bulk). We found bottled waters, a 24 case for $1.99. That's a WONDERFUL deal. I got 3 :) I also got about a weeks worth of groceries. It's a lot of fun going grocery shopping with a friend. I'd highly recommend it - hehehe. Much more enjoyable than with 5 children - ROFL!
Next, we went back to our own homes, and put away our groceries. After about a 1/2 hour, I met her back at her house, and we washed/detailed our cars. NOT something that I typically like to do, but it needed done. Captain America is gonna be home on Sunday (woohoo!), and my truck hadn't been washed since before he left. It doesn't rain here, so all the dust is starting to accumulate. It REALLY needed a bath. After washing it, we cleaned out the insdie, vacuumed, washed the windows, and cleaned the inside parts. It looked FABULOUS when it was all done.
We also detailed the inside of Andreas truck (suburban). She said that she was gonna make her hubby go to the automatic car wash and wash the outside part - LOL! Captain America usually washes my rig for me, and does a FABULOUS job. He'd be so proud of me! hehehehe.
We also took our kids to the park this afternoon after school. Another of the girls in the neighborhood just had her hubby deploy, and wanted to give her kids piano lessons on Mondays after school. Andrea volunteered to watch the other kids during that hour. We took her kids, and our kids, to the park to play. I think everyone had a lot of fun :)
Near bedtime, Captain America called, and we had Family Home Evening on the webcam. It was pretty cool. We all sat on the couch, with the laptop (and webcam) on the coffee table. And the cell phone on speaker phone. It was pretty neat to have him "be here". It was short and sweet, but I think the kids appreciated that time with Dad.
I'm getting really frustrated with my TV. I wanted to watch "The Bachelorette" tonight, but my ABC channel is non-existent. It just stopped working on Saturday. Sigh. I'll have to watch it today on the computer. It's just not as convienent. I like to have my shows on in the evenings, when I can watch and design at the same time. If I watch it online, I can't use photoshop at the same time. Hopefully the local stations will figure out the digital signals soon, and I can go back to my regular scheduled viewing - hehehe. (Isn't it sad how ruled by the TV my life seems to be - hehehe)
I think I got sunburned again. I'm gonna have to start putting on a little layer of sunblock under my makeup. My face is a nice pink today. Hopefully it turns to tan. But it if does, I'm gonna have to buy a darker shade of foundation. Do you guys have to do that too? Do you have a summer/winter color for your foundation? Surely I'm not the only one :)
I just LOVED how this WordArt turned out :) So pretty - LOL! Is that wrong of me to think? Am I sounding like I'm bragging? NOT what I meant to do - ROFL!
