Well, good news! I'm not sick. hehehe. I just must have been tired yesterday. I woke up feeling just fine. I got the kids off to school, and babysat my friend Laurie's little boy, Rowan. He and Jimmy look like twins, only one year apart. Rowan is just turning 3, and Jimmy just turned 4. Too funny. They really play nicely together, so it's not bad to babysit at all.
I got some designing done this morning too. I'd gotten an email from someone with a TON of nice quotes/sayings, so I picked out my favorites, and got 3 WordArt packs out of it. Sweet!
After babysitting, and after lunch, Jake, Jim and I went over to Laurie's house to hang. Laurie was helping another friend of ours, Jenica, make a quilt. Apparently they'd been working on it for months, and had gotten to the "sew it together" stage. I didn't actually sew, but I was in charge of making sure that the pattern was followed. Good job for me - LOL! It went pretty fast with 3 of us working on it.
Right before it was time to go home, Jenicas hubby brought us Sonic happy hour drinks! I was in HOG heaven. Mmmmmm, Route 44 Diet Dr Pepper. Yes!
At home, I discovered that Jake had not been working on his homework. I'd sent him home after an hour and a half to finish up his last 2 classes. Instead, he'd watched a movie? What the heck is that all about??? Needless to say, he didn't have a very good rest of the evening.
The kids did their chores, we made dinner, ate, and then the other kids played. Jake went back to school. He had science and math to work on. He was super grouchy and yelling the whole time. He got a little talking to, and I'm pretty sure he realized that it's better to do your work during the daytime than to wait and do it in the evening. Hopefully...
Captain America had staff duty in the evening, so I didn't get to see him much. Just 15 minutes as he was gathering his stuff and heading out the door. Every once in a while, the guys have Staff Duty. It's manning the desk, or something like that. It's an overnight kinda thing. They come back home at 9am, and get the rest of the day off to sleep. I texted him to see how it was going, and he said he was guarding top secret stuff. Wow! Sounds like a spy type deal - hehehe. My husband, the spy. Not so much - LOL!
I spent the rest of the evening doing nothing. Literally. I played WAY too many boring, pointless games on facebook. There's only so much Happy Aquarium, Bejeweled, and Blocks games that you can take in one night. Here it is, 10:30pm, and I'm bored. I think I may go and clean for a while. Yeah, you know you're bored when CLEANING sounds entertaining - hehehe. Come back home, sweetheart! I miss you :)
This weeks WordArt Wednesday cracks me up! It's SO true to my children. Jimmy in particular. He's like a little tornado going through my house. How does someone so little make SUCH messes? Sigh. Well, I thought that you could use this for pictures of your little (or not so little) mess makes. Children, husbands (hehehe), friends, pets. You name it, it'll work!
