Soda Junkie

Morning, all. Hope everyone slept well :) I was up at normal time this morning, and got up and got breakfast made for everyone. I made pancakes for the kids. I hung with Captain America for a few minutes when he got home from PT or whatever he was doing, and helped him get on his way to work.

I sat down on the couch for a few hours in the morning to get some designing done. I got all 5 WordArt Packs for the week done, and even started on an alphabet. I was pretty pleased with all of my hard work. hehehe.

At 11:05am, my kids, me, and Ella headed over to Free lunch. Lily was napping, so Maddie stayed with her. The kids had chili and tater tots, milk, and cantaloupe. Some of them liked it. Some didn't. Can't please everyone, right?


Me, all dressed up for the FRG luncheon


Ella, wearing the boys' clothes. So I had to put a pony in her hair. LOL




Me, grouchy at someone or another. Can't remember now why the grouchy face...


Do you like my new necklace??

We got stuck behind this on the way home. Sigh

So when I got back home, I dropped off all the kids, and headed to my FRG luncheon. The new Charlie Battery commander wanted to meet with all the spouses. It was about an hour long. They fed us, but I, of course, don't eat. Well, I eat, but I only eat my diet food. Cause if I ate regular food, I'd gain 30 lbs in 4 months again, and we don't want that....

Anyway, it was a nice meeting, and we got to hear from the commander, and meet the other women. Seemed like nice enough people.

After the meeting, I came back home and ate lunch, then worked to get everyone ready to go. It took about an hour, but we got to the pool at around 2pm. Here's some pics from our time there.

Maddie and Lily

Jim (we'd bought swim rings and foamy balls yesterday at the dollar tree for the kids)


Maddie and Ella

Jimmy came out of the bathroom at one point and couldn't get his pants pulled up. TOO cute. hehehe.


Joe and all his swim rings

Funny boy!

Maddie and I

Joe playing with the Nouhan (Hilary) kids.


Jake and Lily

Laurie came to the pool with her kids about 10 minutes before we left, so we didn't get the chance to hang out. :( That's ok, she and Hilary were chatting when I left.

We came back home, and started on dinner. I had an egg, sausage, and hashbrown casserole all ready to go in the oven. And it was only 4:15pm, so it would be done by 5pm. I was SO proud of myself. Until the entire house filled with egg smoke. Apparently the pan wasn't big enough....

And it leaked ALL over the bottom of my stove. Sigh. I pulled it out and spilled more, but got it to the sink. I tried to wipe it off inside, but it was WAY too hot. Captain America came home from work about that time. Between the two of us, we managed to get the egg mess cleaned up, and the casseroles back in the oven at 4:30pm. Still within dinner range....

I chatted with Captain America for a bit, and finally came out to check on the food at 5:10pm. Yeah, food cooks better when the oven is actually on. Sigh. You ever have days like that??? So I put 1/2 of it in a frying pan and cook it up, and the other half in a baking dish and freeze it for next time. Half made enough for everyone, so it was all good.

I cut up 1/2 a watermelon and a cantaloupe, and made some toast (burnt the first batch - I was on a roll....), and got dinner on the table. I cooked my fish and veggies, and ate too. I did realize something cool, though. 115 grams of yellow squash/zucchini chunked and in a mini ziplock baggie with just a tad of water for 2 minutes in a microwave steams it PERFECTLY! I'm just sayin....

After dinner, a storm tried to roll through, so we gathered up stuff in the backyard, and got a few sprinkles. It passed, and the kids went outside to play. I finished off my alpha, and started blogging. It's now 7:43pm, and Captain America should be home within the hour from his softball game. I optioned out tonight.

I find that right before I start my period, I have one day of "Blah". Where everything seems to go wrong, and you feel sad, and melancholy. Well, today is the lucky day. Hope it goes away quickly....

OK, done blogging, and am gonna put a movie in. See ya tomorrow!
