So here's a few pictures from Tuesday that I forgot to post. I guess I need to download my pictures every day, huh? hehehe.
OK, I know it's blurry, but what's wrong with this picture? Even in the blur, you can tell that these legs are TOO smooth......FOR A MAN! Enough said...
Like I said on yesterdays post, I did call around in the morning and find out that yes, someone had stolen my money bag, taken all the money out, then ditched the bag. Luckily the $25.00 Verizon Wireless rebate debit card was still in there. I still need to go and pick that up. It's safe and sound behind the Customer Service desk at Wal-Mart.
It kinda ruined my morning, though. I didn't really feel motivated to go and do anything. I did get the kids off to school on time, though. Here's Eme on her birthday morning, with her new shirt on. She's so cute!
I needed to go grocery shopping, though. I did make up my list, and even texted my friend Laurie to see if she wanted to go with me. She was busy in the morning, though. BUT, by the time I finally got around to getting ready and going, it was 11am, and she was available.
It's amazing how much more enjoyable a menial task like Grocery shopping is with a friend. Jake came, and pushed Jimmy (4) and Rowan (almost 3) in the kid shopping cart, and Laurie and I pushed the food cart. It really was a good time. I came in $0.45 cents under budget. I was starting to get a little nervous there, considering I had exactly $200 in my wallet, and the total was $199.55. Luckily I had a few dollars left over from last week to tip the bagger. I did get a few extra, out of the ordinary things this week, though. Like 2 new kinds of Herbal tea, and a pumpkin (bringing our total to 3), birthday cake, ice cream, cones, and a few other "non" essential but fun items. Gotta do that every once in a while :)
After grocery shopping, Jake and I put all the groceries away, then had lunch. Grilled cheese w/ cotti salami sandwiches. I must have been hungry, because it tasted SO good. LOL! I spent quite a bit of time this afternoon on the computer, checking emails and such.
I made 2 batches of Carrot Cake cupcakes with homemade Cream Cheese frosting for Eme's "Party". Mmmm, I just LOVE carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Tasty! And the ice cream was white with fudge swirls. Can't beat that!
At about 3:30, I started to get everything ready to take to the park for Eme's party. Well, it wasn't really a party so much as it was "come to the park and eat ice cream and cupcakes with Emeline". But she didn't need to know that - LOL!
Andrea showed up at my door at 3:45pm, and wanted me to ride to Juarez Burritos with her to get take out for her family. I left Jake in charge, and told the kids that we'd go to the park at 4:30pm. I texted my other friends to let them know, and off we went. I'd never been there before, and it seemed like a good place to eat.
Andrea is a lot of fun to hang out with. Thanks, girl, for asking me along for the ride! I'll come and hang out ANYTIME you want! hehehe.
"Party" at the park was good. I had bought 2 boxes of cones, each with 2 packages of cones inside. One whole package was crushed. I was a few kids short of ice cream, but had PLENTY of cup cakes. Sorry, kids! I tried my best. hehehe. Eme seemed pleased with her party.
It was so bright and sunny it was hard to get pictures. Poor Eme is squinting big time. And yeah, we're still in the 70's and 80's here in El Paso. None of that cold white frozen white stuff for us!
And, some cash (don't leave it in your puse at Wal-Mart, someone may STEAL it - I'm just saying....). She got money from a friend, from Captain America and I, from Grandma Ida, and from Grandma Lyn. She's pretty excited about going and spending her "dollars". When my parents are here, we're taking her out to Chili's on Saturday night for dinner. Should be a good time!
After the park, we came home, and had pulled pork sandwiches for dinner. Mmmmm, tasty. Sure, it was left over pulled pork, but it was STILL good. My head was starting to hurt a bit, so I took a pill and went in my room to relax and take it easy.
Jake and Tom and Captain America left for scouts at 6:30pm, and the other kids and I went in my room for a ovie. Eme got to pick it out. Can you guess what it was? She's SO much like me it's scary. We watchd Twilight. ha! She and Jim ended up falling asleep just before it got over. Captain Americaand the other boys were home by then, so they helped me get the kids to their rooms and in bed. All in all, it turned out to be a great day.
