Trust Yourself

What a day, what a day :) It started off with getting kids ready for school. Dang, the weekend really takes it out of ya, doesn't it! Monday morning rolls around, and I'm just dragging. BUT, they got out the door on time.

I was ready to go walking by 8:30am, and Jake and Jim came with me. Jimmy in the stroller, and Jake walking Katy's boxer, Athena. I think it was more like she walked him, but they both seemed to have a great time. It's fun to walk and chat with the girls. Thanks, you guys, for helping me exercise! I LOVE it (but only when with y'all!)

We stayed and chatted for a while after the walk, outside on the sidewalk, then wandered to our respective houses. How cool is it to have friends on your block! First time experience for me! Gotta love it :)

I helped Jake with his school, and got lunch for the boys and myself. Captain America came home at noon-ish, and then at 1ish Andrea and I went to visit Kim. She's leaving for Florida (I think that's where she's going) for the rest of the fall/winter (I think - ha! Maybe I should listen more), so we wanted to go and hang for a bit.

We didn't stay long, since she had so much to do. I got back home, and was able to design 2 WordArt packs for the week. I've got 3 of the 5 for the week already done. Amazing, I know.

I moved the TV from Jimmy's room back into the living room. My original plan was to be able to put a movie on without it distracting Jake from his school work. BUT, Jimmy has been sneaking food into his room, and destroying the carpet. At least if he sneaks food into the living room (which I'm NOT ok with), it'll be on the hardwood, and won't ruin anything. I re-arranged things, and it looks ok. Nice cozy living room.

When the big kids got home from school, I read them a chapter or 2 of The Hunger Games. It's really starting to heat up now, and the kids always beg for more. We got dinner ready (spaghettie with my frozen meatballs from before), then got Jake out the door and to Wrestling. After wrestling, a few of the girls and I and some of our men went out to dinner. Total impromptu thing. Don't you just love that! Here's a few pics from the night.

Here's Captain America, with the BEST chip of the night. He's so silly. There's certain chips that he likes better than others, and this one, apparently, was the BEST. Too funny. We're at Chili's, by the way :) These pics are on my cell phone, so that's why they're kinda bad - hehehe. Can you believe that I left my REAL camera at home. DAng!

Here's Captain America and I

Ryan and Andrea

Kim and Big Mike (their son is Little Mike (he's a Marine!)

Katy and Adela (their men are deployed)

We had a lot of fun eating and chatting and making fun of the LAME waitress. We totally had to keep asking for drinks, and they didn't bring our ticket when they should have. Geesh! Oh well. We're happy when we're making fun of people - LOL!

So at one point, we were talking about PMS, and about how I throw things when I'm PMS-y and agitated. SO, I gathered all the knives on the table and pretend to be Wolverine. Yes, I know. I'm a dork. But you all love me! Please say yes - LOL!

After dinner, we came back home, and it was after 10pm. I got Captain America to bed, and headed out to Katy's house. We watched Survivor episode 3 from last week, and then the season premiere of The Amazing Race. They were both SO good. We still have to watch Amazing race episode 2. I think it's gonna be a good season this year! I like both of those shows a lot. AND, it's so much better watching it with friends! Thanks, girls!
