Another whirwind of a day :) Started out at 7am, when I got up, got the kids ready, made them French toast, a triple batch at that (froze 2 batches), and sent them off to the bus. I got mostly ready, and Hilary came over to walk with me.
We walked from 8-9am, then she and I went back to her house where she got ready for the day, we stopped at Sonic for a RT 44 Diet Dr Pepper, then she dropped me off at home, and she went to work at 10:30am. It was a pretty fun morning. I showered, hung with Jimmy for a while, then cleaned for a little bit.
Jake and Jimmy and I loaded up in the truck, and headed off to the PX for a stop at Game Stop, then a trip to the food court for lunch with Captain America. I drove into the parking lot, and the place was PACKED! I instantly started to get grouchy. Yeah, we weren't going in between 11:30 and 1pm. NOT AT ALL. I turned around and made to leave, and had to wait 5 minutes before traffic left me out. Sigh.
I dropped the kids off at home, promising them I'd pick them up at 1:20pm, and we'd go back, and headed off to El Taco Tote to meet Captain America. Yeah, much more relaxing. He and I ate and chatted and enjoyed ourselves until about 1pm.
He headed back to work, and I swung by the house and picked up the kids. We went to Taco Bell in the PX, and the kids each got a 5 Layer Burrito. We went to Game Stop, and Jake tried to find a game that he liked that was ALSO not rated M. Yeah, most of the ones he thought looked like fun were M. I don't mind an M game if there's an option to turn off the language/blood/gore/violence. BUT, if there's not that option, then we're not buying it. Yeah, none of them had it, or the people there didn't know if they did.
He ended up getting 1 game for the PSP, and 2 computer games, for about $23. It was his babysitting money, so I didn't really care what he got. He seemed pleased, though :)
We headed home, and were there for about an hour before the bus. I worked on my Cub Scout achievement plans for a while, and almost forgot to get the kids from the bus. hehehe. I brought them back home, and we got ready to go to the park.
Hilary and Laurie and I hung there for about an hour with our kids, then Laurie took her kids to piano, I took my kids home, and Hilary took her girls to the pool. Eme went with them. I put dinner in the oven, then after Joe's homework was done, left the boys playing electronics, and I went to the pool to hang with the grown-ups. hehehe.
I left at 6pm to take Tom to football, then came back, picked up Hilary, and we headed to Sam's. We got snacks for the Primary activity on Saturday, and I got gas. Then on to Walmart. I got the supplies for the "Jesus is Born" activity. We're gonna build a 2D Nativity craft. With frosting and pretzels and cookies and junk. I"ll take a pic when I'm done. hehehe.
I didn't ever hear from Captain America if he was at Football or not, so after Walmart, Hilary and I drove out to the field. Yeah, he was already home. Oops. He said he was real sorry he didn't let me know. I dropped Hilary back off at her car at the pool, then headed home.
The kids were already asleep. I sat down and worked on my Cub Scout plans some more, then had Captain America look over them for a bit.
And here it is, 10:55pm, and I'm just finishing up blogging. Need to design a freebie, then go to bed. Cause I'm tired. Even though I went to bed before 9pm last night, and had 10 hours of sleep. Yeah, it felt SO good. hehehe.
