Wow, girls! Remember how I said I wasn't feeling too well the other night? WELL, I woke up Wednesday morning with a KILLER migraine. I took at pill at 7:00am, and laid back down. Usually, 1 hour, headache gone. Not this one. I didn't take any food with my pill, just a cup of water, and the longer I laid in bed with my ouchie head, the worse my tummy felt. At about 8:30am, I decided to go and get some crackers. I almost didn't make it back to bed. I ate 3 of them (it was all I could force down), and laid back for a while. Headache still there. At 10:00am, I tried for another cracker. And some water. Well, that was a bad mistake. Up it all came.
Finally, at 11:40am, I woke back up, and felt almost human. I got my 3 little kids ready and headed out the the park (free lunch Wednesday). We missed the lunch, but found our friends. And we did get sent home with all the left over watermelon. Yummy! I was moving pretty slow, but the headache and pukey feeling was gone. I just felt weak.
Joe and Eme went home with Laurie to play with her kids, and Jimmy and I headed back to the house. Jake and Tom had stayed at home, not wanting to go. I brought them back the watermelon.
I sat and designed for a little while, and worked on Cub Scout papers for a little while too. I made up a calendar for Cub Scouts though the end of the year. Woohoo for me! I also started a blog for our Cub Scout pack. I was quite pleased with how it turned out :)
I walked down to Katy's house with Jimmy at around 3:00pm, wanting to drop something off for Emily. She had agreed to teach the Cub Scouts how to play Basketball that evening. We were meeting at the church at 7:00pm. She needed to know what to teach them :)
Jimmy and I ended up staying and visiting for an hour or so. We had fun! Jimmy got to play with the dogs, and we watched a bit of Madagascar 2 on Blu-Ray (SWEET!), and just had fun hanging out.
Katy and Emily walked with Jimmy and I to Laurie's house to retrieve my other kids around dinner time. They were said that they had to go, but I needed to get them home and fed before scouts. Poor Joe. He SO wanted to join their family. He told me he wished that he'd been in Laurie's tummy so he could have been born into her family. Nice. And what am I, chopped liver? Where's the love, Joe? I'm sure not feeling it - hehehe.
I made pancakes for dinner for the kids, and my regular stir fry for myself. We were all done and ready to go by 6:55pm. Yes, a little later than I wanted. Scouts started at 7:00pm. So, I hurried over to scouts.
Well, apparently I hurried a little bit too much, becasue as I was coming out of one of the housing areas, I stopped at a stop sign right before coming off of post, and the bike cops ran in front of my truck. The little guy in the yellow shirt came to my window, and said I was speeding, and to pass over my Military ID, my license, my registration, and my insurance card. Dang! Now I REALLY was gonna be late.
I'd always made fun of the bike cops before (sorry for all you bike cops out there), saying how in the world would they pull someone over. Well, I know now. They wait for you to come to a stop, then jump infront of you. Durn you, bike cops - hehehe. I would have only been 5 minutes late instead of 15. Well, I guess if I'd have left sooner, or not speed, then I woudln't have been late also. But it's more fun to blame it on the freakin' bike cops - ROFL!
So, Scouts was good. We had 5 Scout age boys (and a TON of siblings). Emily taught them the rules, had them practice some skills, then they played a game. She really did a great job teaching/coaching them. Thanks, Emily!!! I owe you one!
We left scouts at around 8pm, and had to make a quick trip to Wal-Mart. Tom's glasses were in, and I coudln't remember what time the vision center closed. But I also needed Yogurt for today. Since I was sick, I didn't have a chance to go grocery shopping. I was all out of yogurt. So, we headed off to Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, the vision center was closed. But, I got a large tub of yogurt, and a box of cereal, and a 6 pack of Generic Zero Cola, all for under $5.00. Woohoo for me KEEN shopping abilities - hehehe.
We headed back home, put the kids to bed, and I sat down to design. It was another long day, but it ended well. Especially considering how bad it started. Luckily my kids are pretty self sufficient. The house wasn't TOO badly trashed when I emerged from my hole - LOL!
So, WordArt for today. Yesterday wasn't that day - hehehe. Not an AHHHHH!!!!! moment. Some days are, don't get me wrong. Just not yesterday - LOL! I'm sure that I have a TON of pictures for this one, I just don't have the time/energy to go digging right now :) Now that I think of it, though, I need to take a picture of the bike cops, and blog that with the AHHHH!!!! WordArt. That would work! hehehe.
