Little Star

Another busy day comes to a close. hehehe. I was up at 6:40am, showering, getting ready, and heading to the doctors. I had an appointment to talk about my tailbone issues. The lady doctor said that she had the same thing. That Physical Therapy would probably help. But that there's not too many people who do it. So she was gonna make some calls and find a therapist who did it.

I told her that it wasn't so bad when I was fat, but now that I'd lost weight, that it hurt more. I also asked about if the army would pay for extra skin to be removed. She said that the army will pay for one elective surgery per person. She put in a referral to talk to someone about a "tummy tuck". I know a ton of people who have had referrals, and the insurance have denied them. Doesn't hurt to ask, right? We'll see how it goes.

I was back home by 8:3oam ish, and helped make pancakes for the family. We hung at home for a bit, and I designed 3 WordArt packs. I still had 2 more to do, but figured I'd do them in the afternoon.

At 11am, we all got our swim suits on, and headed to free lunch. We had 4 adults and 7 kids. Not too bad ratio, huh? LOL. They had tacos and salad and oranges and milk for lunch.

After eating, we drove to the pool and stayed till around 2pm. It was a fun time. The kids all had a BLAST! But we got a bit burned, even with 50 spf sunscreen.

Here's my niece Ella and me in the background

And me in all my swim suit glory. Sigh. hehehe

My dad and the baby in the big pool

Ella and Jacob

Laurie and Madi and I chatting

After the pool, we came home and vegged for the afternoon. We watched Alvin and the Chipmunks, and Lily took a nap. The kids just kinda laid there and rested while watching the movie - hehehe. I got my other 2 WordArt Packs done.

At around 5pm, we headed up to the PX for dinner in the food court. We figured it would be easier than a restaurant with 7 kids ages 1-12. LOL

Here's us walking into the Food Court

Joe, Jim, and my dad

After dinner, we headed to the Exchange to browse around. We didn't mean for it to be a group shot, but it kinda turned into it when everyone jumped into the picture...

After just a few minutes in the Exchange, we realized we needed to go. WAY too many children - hehehe. We headed to the On Post movie theater, and watched Prince of Persia. About 10 minutes into the movie (if even that), Madi decided that it wasn't for Lily. Lily didn't want any part of being at the theater. hehehe. Good thing it only cost a buck on Thursday nights.

Madi and my mom and Jacob (he'd already seen the movie) and Lily headed home. Ella came to sit with me about 30 minutes in, and instantly fell asleep. Jimmy sat on one side of me, and fell asleep next, and Joe came to sit on my other side, and fell asleep. Where I'd normally be cold at a movie theater, the kids kept me nice and heated. I just wished I'd had socks - hehehe.

After the movie, we took the sleepy kids home, and put them to bed. Here it is, 10:12pm, and I think I'm gonna be to bed early. Nice! Especially where I'm getting up early to go grocery shopping in the morning. I need my strength - ha!

So I have a Page Corners WordArt pack coming out on Friday, so in honor of that, I made you guys a "Page Corners" WordArt. Hope you like it!

They gave the PX a facelift since we've been stationed there. It was no where near that nice when we were out there! :( My son has been walking around singing Twinkle Twinkle little star to his baby brother for weeks now! :) Thanks for another awesome word art.

Lots of shared times with others stationed in the same place and shared lives. It all brings back fond memories for me. Your the best !
