I sent the kids off to school, and Jake and Jim were still sleeping. I went back to bed. But Jimmy was awake 3 minutes later. So I had him come and join me, and we watched a bit of PBS cartoons. About 20 minutes, Andrea texted, and asked if i wanted to go walking. We agreed to go at 8:20am.
At about 8:10, I started to get ready for the walk. I threw on some exercise clothes, a sock hat, a scarf, a jacket, some gloves, and got Jimmy ready, and headed out the door. It was a nice walk. Cold outside, but nice walk. Buuurrrrrrr!
After the walk, I hurried home, and got ready to go grocery shopping. I was supposed to go tomorrow, but Andrea was going today, and I figured that I could go one day early, and have company. Sounded like more fun to me. Hehehe.
I printed out my list, and crossed off all the stuff that I already had. I went to Andreas house, and we drove to the commissary. Jimmy and Luke came with us. I left Jake at home, undisturbed, to complete his school.
We shopped, and got all the stuff that we needed. I was even $50 under budget. I'll save it for the end of the month. Sounds like a plan.
After shopping, we went home, and Jake helped me carry in all of the groceries. We ate lunch, put away groceries, and Jimmy and I headed back out with Andrea. We went to Wal-Mart this time. I needed Blistex for Captain America, and she needed a few things. We found Christmas stuff for 75% off, and I got some gift baskets for SUPER cheap. Lotions and bath soaps and such. Should be good for a "fast" gift. And under $2 is a FABULOUS price :)
We went back home, and Jimmy and I went to lay down for a little while, before the kids came home from school. At 4pm, the kids came home, and Laurie invited them over to her house to play with her kids. Jim and Joe and Eme and Tom went to play for a few hours. Jake was still working on Homework (he was doing SO well without the distractions of Jim and the rest of the kids), and Andrea and I went out to JoAnns Fabric. We wanted to do THIS craft. Here's a pic of it:
Isn't it cute? We got the foam wreath, and we'd already bought the lima beans earlier at the commissary. I'll keep you posted on the progress :) Should be a lot of fun. I think that after our walk tomorrow, I'll go over to her house and work on it. Which means that I need to find my glue gun and glue. I wonder where that is......
The kids came back home at around 6:00pm, and we had dinner. Crock pot chicken, and salad with croutons, and green beans. Mmmmm, tasty. I cleaned up the kitchen (washed ALL the dishes by hand), Jake did school, Eme played Wii fit, the little kids took a bath, and Tom, um, er, well, I'm not sure what he did - hehehe.
I put the little kids to bed, Jake finished up school, Tom and Eme went to read, and I designed. I got 3 new WordArt packs designed. One about friends, one all Mark Twain quotes, and one about the past. I think they turned out pretty good. I did notice a typo in one, but I still have time to fix it. I just need to remember to go and do it - LOL!
I took a nice hot bath, and relaxed for a while before Captain America came home. He and I chatted for a while before bed, and here it is, 11pm. I'm gonna shut this computer off, and listen to Breaking Dawn for a while. I'm already on chapter 9. Dang, it goes fast when you listen, not read. hehehe.
OK, I thought that this one would be PERFECT for the New Year. Maybe you can scrap a page with your New Years resolutions or goals. What do ya think??
And, while I'm talking about New Years Resolutions, I have an idea. Leave me a comment, with your New Years resolution (and an email address), and I'll come back and give out a few of my new WordArt packs that are releasing on Friday. Sound like a plan?
