First off, I just had to say "HAPPY ONE YEAR Army Anniversary, Honey"!!! It was one year ago today that I sent my man off to boot camp. I still remember it like it was yesterday. Sad to be losing him for 6 long months, excited/apprehensive about moving across country with 5 little kdis and a homemade trailer in tow. Look where we are today! Living on an army post, as a family again, in a BEAUTIFUL house, with lots of friends around. I'm loving life (knock on wood!), and really happy for this drastic change in the diretion on our life. Thanks, sweetheart! You did good for your family! Real good :)
So, how was your Monday? Glad for a new week, or ready for it to be over already - hehehe. I was up at about 8am with the kids, and spent much of the morning catching up online. I facebooked a litte, Farmtowned a little, and even chatted with a friend who I hadn't chatted with for YEARS on facebook. Gotta love it - I say it's the lazy mans way of being a friend - LOL!
Anyway, she recommened this book to me, The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. I started reading it, and almost couldn't put it down! I managed to leave it alone long enough to get ready, and head to the pool with the kids. Laurie and her kids were there, and we hung out till about 1pm. The baby pool was shut down for cleaning, so it wasn't an easy pool day. The little kids had to swim in the big pool, which meant that the mommies had to get in the pool - LOL! We're so lazy - Ha! We LOVE the easy baby pool. Oh well. It's good for us - ha!
When I got back home, we'd made plans to go back over to Lauries house and let the kids play. I got everyone changed, cooked them lunch, and managed to fit in a few more chapters. We went to Lauries house, and were there until about 3:30. The kids had a lot of fun playing, and I had a lot of fun grown-up chatting. Adult conversation is SO nice :)
We came back home, the kids did their chores, and went to their various activities, and I read. I stopped for dinner, and read some more, then stopped for Family Home Evening, and back to reading. The book was FABULOUS! Not the typical fluffy book that I so love to read. This one made you think. Not that it was hard to read, or used big words, or anything like that. But the subject matter made you think about how people interract, and systems of government, and right and wrong. Very thought provoking. I though it would be great for a book club. And I'd never head of it before. My friend told me the're thinking of making it into a movie. It'd be a great one! AND, book 2 is coming out in September. I'll be getting that one, for sure!
Well, this WordArt isn't a request, but if I had a picture of me from yesterday, I would TOTALY be lost in my book - hehehe. I could take pics of Jake and Tom that woudl be FABULOUS for this WordArt too - hehehe. I'm sure you all can use the same for you kids (or yourself - hehehe)
