Young & In Love

What a strange day I had :) I woke up at 7 something, hearing the kids beating on the old TV that goes to the Wii, trying to get it to work - LOL! I went to the bathroom, and went back to bed, trying to go back to sleep.

Well, I guess it worked, because I didn't wake up until almost 10am. Dang! It's SUCH a great day when your kids get old enough to NOT wake you up and need you in the morning - hehehe.

I came out and make pancakes for the kids, and apples and yogurt for myself, and helped the kids get some chores done.

At 11am, Captain America and I left for Walmart. Johnny had just came, and I only had one tampon left. Not a good combo. hehehe. We needed to go, and go fast :)

We drove to the farther away Walmart in hopes that it would be better than the one close to the boarder, but no luck. It wasn't very well stocked. A lot of the things that we needed, they didn't have. Captain America wasn't too happy, considering he already hates Walmart in El Paso - poor guy :)

I wanted a new purse, cause mine is breaking, but couldn't find one in the purse isle that I liked. The ones that I liked only had handles, and the ones the over the shoulder straps were ugly. Sigh. I'd just have to lump it. But then when we were in the flag pole isle (I know, hehehe), I found the CUTEST laptop case that LOOKED like a purse, so I got it :) It's red and shiney and SO chick. I love it :)

After Walmart, we went to El Taco Tote. By then, I wasn't feeling too well. I was on my diet, and going through food withdrawls. I know, I know, that sounds funny. But seriously, it's like a drug for me. I crave it. I think about it all the time. I obsess over it. Not good. Diets are good for me (very restrictive ones), because it takes that all away. I don't think about it, because i KNOW what it is that I have to eat. I don't care about it, because it's always the same. It takes the "fun" out of food, and allows me to seek for "fun" and "joy" in other, more healthy places. Anyway, it's hard, though, the first few days of my diet. Withdrawls...

SO, I ordered a Steak taco, with just steak. I threw away the corn tortilla, and just ate the steak. I got a little plate of cucumbers, and a diet lemonade. Sigh. Not the most fun of lunches, but it'll be good for me. I have a WHOLE closet full of clothes that no longer fit, and I'm NOT gonna let that be the case. A couple of months on this diet, and I'll lose the weight.

We realized that Jacob was supposed to be at a meeting for church at 1:0o, and that he was gonna be late. We hurried home, got Jake ready, and Captain America took him to his meeting. I was starting to feel SUPER car sick, had cramps, AND food (sugar) withdrawls all at the same time, so I laid down in my bed to take a nap. I put on PBS cartoon for Jimmy, and he snuggled with me for a while. It was VERY peaceful and relaxing.

A few hours later, I felt MUCH better. I made dinner for the kids, and went with Captain America and Jim and Joe to the field by our house and watched Captain America play catch with the boys. SO cute! Joe's a natural. Eme came out and played for a while, too :)

Andrea and I went out after dinner. She'd been home for WAY too long, and needed out. I'd hadn't seen here for a while, and I needed an "Andrea" fix too - hehehe. Captain America took the little boys and Eme to McDonalds for an ice cream, then picked up Jake from his meeting. He'd stayed late to play at his friends house (where the meeting was).

Andrea and I drove around for a bit, then went to Target and the Jewelry Box. I got some socks, and some earrings, a necklace, and a scarf. I just LOVE $1 things :)

We got home, and put the kids to bed. Captain America had a little bit of work to do, I blogged and designed, and now we're gonna watch a movie before bed. Weird day, but it ended good. I'm feeling MUCH better. Less hormonal. Less crampy. Less hungry. Tomorrow should be a MUCH better day :)

This WordArt request comes from Shawna. I thought it was such a fun one. It would work for a new young couple, married or not, OR even for old people. Young at heart, you know. Or for little boys and girls holding hands. Lots of possibilities :)
