First off, here's a new Bundle for ya! Well, technically, there's nothing new in there. New, in the fact, that it's never been offered in a bundle before...... Click HERE to go to the product. It's $5 for all 8 packs. Great deal, eh?
Is it Monday already? And the Monday of Spring break, none the less. Where does the time go?
So, another Sunday. Since my truck was broke, we had to shuttle to church. Captain America was up and ready and out the door to meetings before anyone else was awake. We got up at 7:15am and started getting ready. He came home at 7:50am, and we decided that I'd go to my 8:20am meeting with Jake, Tom, and Joe, and that he'd stay behind and get the other kids ready.
I met with the member of the Bishopric, and they released me from my Primary Presidency calling, and asked me to be the Chorister in Primary. Sigh. This makes my 8th time doing it. But, I don't turn down callings, so I said yes.
I left the boys at church, and headed back to get the rest of the family. Apparently, while I was gone, Jake and Tom were fist fighting in the chapel, and the bishopric member had to come and talk with them. Needless to say, the were in SO much trouble when they got home. Both were banned from any forms of electronic entertainment for a month. That's just NOT acceptable behavior.
So I come back home, get Captain America and Jim and Eme, and we head back to church. On the way to church, Captain America starts questioning me if I'm gonna ever get back on my diet. And he says that since I'm probably not gonna, then I oughta get rid of all my skinny clothes and replace them with clothes that fit me at this weight. What the heck? Yeah, I was NOT pleased with that conversation. Did he take a stupid pill this morning? You don't EVER talk to a woman about her weight. EVER. Somehow along the way, he missed that part....
So, my day didn't start off too good. I had to take Joe into the hall during sacrament and talk to him about being reverent, and then take Jimmy to the bathroom, because he says, Loudly, "Mom, I"ve gotta go poop NOW or I'm gonna poop my pants". So out we went.
AND, since I ate a WHOLE bag of prunes last night (I know, I know, not the smartest thing to do, but they're my WEAKNESS. I LOVE prunes...), I had the worst case of stomach cramps EVER. Felt like I'd taken laxatives. SO not cool.
I was doing sharing time, and part of it was to watch the Follow the Prophet movie that I'd spent 3 hours making yesterday. And I couldn't get the TV to work. It's the same brand of TV that we have at home, and has the A/V connections in the front. And they went bad. Sigh. So I had 7 minutes worth of Sharing time to stretch into a 15 minute slot. AND we didn't get to see the movie. I was disappointed.
I did find someone to take 3 of my kids home, then waited for 15 minutes after church for Captain America to get out a meeting, when someone else offered to take me and the other 2 kids home. That was nice. I don't know how long I would have been waiting.
I got the kids food, then went in my room for a break. I wasn't feeling well, so the bathroom and I had some personal time - hehehe (actually, not funny - seriously - LOL)
Captain America got home, and we decided on the boys' punishment. I took a big nap, and Captain America helped Jacob finalize his packing for the campout. The little kids watched a movie, and Tom read his book.
I got up and read for a while, then made lasagna casserole for dinner. I think everyone liked it well enough. I liked it, anyway. It was the first thing I'd eaten that day, so I didn't really feel that good. I know, I need to take better care of myself. I was just upset the whole day, and with the prunes and all, yeah. Didn't feel like eating....
So after dinner, I ask Captain America how we're gonna get Jake to the church at 7:30am. He says that I've gotta call around and find a ride for Jake. Sigh. SO, I facebooked my friend Hilary, who has a kid in Young Mens with Jake, and she said that Jake could come over and spent the night, then go with Nathan in the morning. SWEET! That would work perfectly.
So Jake said bye to the family, and we loaded this stuff into the Saturn, and we headed out. We carried all his stuff into Hilary's house, and I stayed and chatted for a while. Time got away from me, and when I looked at my phone (on silence, from church), it was almost 9pm, I had 3 texts and 2 missed calls. Crap.
I hurried home, and the kids were already in bed. I cleaned up the kitchen, and went in to blog. Captain America and I still aren't talking. Sigh. Not looking forward to this week. I don't have a car, don't have a babysitter, not speaking to my husband.... and I'm hormonal. Dangerous combination, you know. OK, I'll stop whining....
