Define Normal

New stuff for the week! Woohooo! Click HERE to go to Scrapbookgraphics.com to check out my new stuff. It's on sale for the first week, $2.00 per pack!

Dang, girls. My day was SO long :) hehehe. Started off sometime in the middle of the night, when a bug crawled on my face. SO scary. My hand shot up there and flipped the thing across the room. GROSS!!! I snuggled closer to Captain America, and tried to forget about the nasty thing. He killed it for me in the morning. Ewh!

I woke up for real at 7am, got the kids ready, out the door and to the bus, got Jake up and going with school, got Jimmy situated, saw Captain America off to work, and headed out to walk with the girls. Since Hilary and I walked SO fast yesterday (56 minutes), Laurie and I decided to see if we could walk that fast today. Andrea and Veronica and Becky were WAY back there. I hope they didn't think we were being rude, or trying to ditch them. We just wanted to walk fast, that was all :)

We got to the end of our block, and saw that we had 1 minute to get back to Andreas house before we were slower than yesterday. hehehe. So we ran. I know, we're dorks. We beat the time from yesterday by 5 seconds. 5 min 55 sec. hehehe.

So we sat down on Andreas step, and waited for the other girls. We all hung for about 15 minutes and chatted, then dispersed. I wandered back home, and helped Jacob with math. He'd gotten a bad grade on a math test a while back, and his teacher re-set the test so he could study and take it again.

Jake had done the review pages while I was gone walking, and I went over it with him, and helped him on the parts he didn't understand. It took about an hour, but he got it. And then he took the test. I sat down and designed. I got 3 1/2 of the 5 WordArt packs designed. I was working real fast - hehehe.

Captain America came home at noon, and got lunch, then packed for his few days in the field. At 1pm, Hilary and I headed out to the store. She wanted to go to Sams club, then to the commissary. I picked up a few things at Sams. Milk was cheaper. And a BIG box of Giradahelli's (yeah, can't spell that) brownie mix. 4 pouches. $3.01. What's an AWESOME price. So I got one, so that I could make brownies for the teachers for teacher appreciation week.

We swung by my house, dropped off the milk and cold stuff, and headed to the commissary. I grabbed 2 bags of bananas, and brought them with me. Laurie was gonna make banana bread for the teachers, and then I'd give her a tray of brownies, and she'd give me some banana bread. 1/2 the work and twice the treats. We're so smart - hehehe.

Laurie and Hilary and I went to the commissary, and got a few things. I need to go shopping tomorrow. I didn't have my list ready or anything. So I just went along for the ride, basically - hehehe.

We were back at home before the bus came, and we all went to our own homes. No park for us. I had SO much to do before 5:30pm. I tasked Jacob with helping Joe with his Cub Scout project. The Tiger cubs were trying to earn the Wildlife Conservation Belt Loop. Jake was teaching him about the food chain, and about an endangered species. The cheetah, and then they made a poster of the food chain. Good job, boys!

I sat down and finished my designing. I got it done, and sent it to Joy, my preview maker. I designed at Teacher Appreciation card for the teachers for tomorrow. I uploaded it to Walmart.com, then made 2 batches of brownies.

Yeah, it was a cereal and PBJ nite for the kids. Sorry, guys. I meant to do more, but there's only so much one person can do in an hour and a half. At 5:30pm, Tom and Joe and I loaded up in the truck, and headed out.

We dropped Tom off at Football at 5:45pm, then headed to Scouts. Scouts was from 6pm to 7pm, but we left about 10 minutes early. Captain America showed up about 10 minutes before we left. He chatted with a few of the leaders, and we headed back home.

We dropped off Joe, and Hilary came over, picked up Captain America and I, dropped Captain America off at the Auto Crafts store to get his Truck (it's fixed, mostly, now), and he drove back home. Hilary and I drove to Walmart by Transmountain, and got the photo card. And some cough drops for Jacob. And a few other household things. She had pics to get for her kids school too.

We stood in line WAY too long, making us late to get Tom. We were only about 15 minutes late. Got Tom, and headed home. She dropped us off, and headed back home herself.

I went inside, and luckily, the little boys were already in bed. Jake was watching a movie, and Eme was on the computer. I told Eme and Tom to go shower and go to bed, and I let Jake lay on the couch and watch some more movie. He's not feeling too well.

I drove the brownies and the cards over to Lauries house. She wasn't done with the banana bread yet, so I just left her share and the cards and headed home. Oh wait, I dropped some off at Andreas house too. And Hilary took a part when we were at Walmart. I'd made enough to share :) Cause I'm nice like that, I guess - hehehe.

I came back home, and did some computer work. LOTS of store work, actually. But I think I'm done. I'm blogged. My store is loaded. I just need to design something for tomorrow. And post it, and I'm all good :)
