And what do I have in the Golden Oldies section, you ask? WELL, remember that 20 wordart pack bundle for $11.11 I did a week ago or so? WELL, it went over so well, I made a few more. Here's 20 Summery WordArt packs for only $12. That's $0.60 a pack. Not too shabby.

And this is a smaller bundle. 10 WordArt packs for only $6.00. Still $0.60 a pack, though :)
Hey girlies! What's happening? Long day again yesterday :) SUPER long, in fact. I woke up around 6am, cause I couldn't sleep. I had my Tummy Tuck consult at 8am, and needed to get up at 6:45am to get ready in time. Sigh. So I tried to sleep in till around 6:30, then finally got up.
I fixed my hair and make up, and got dressed. Here's the finished product. I've gotten good at hiding the extra skin. hehehe. Do you like my phone? Zebra is cool, you know...
Captain America came home from PT at around 7am, and we both got ready together. We headed out to the place at 7:30ish. It wasn't too far from our house. Closer to downtown. At University Medical Center offices. Nice place :) PLUS, we passed a Fallas Paredes on the way, and it wasn't in a scary neighborhood like I thought it was from the online map. WOOHOO!
Anyway, we sat and waited for almost an hour before they brought us back to see the doctor. Here's me, playing with all my extra skin. Yeah, that's ALL skin. See how far I can pull it? Remember, I've lost just a little over 100 lbs. That's a TON of skin....
So the doctor knocked on the door a little after this, and I hurried and tucked my extra skin back in my pants and acted normal. hehehe. Well, normal is relative, you know... ha!
Anyway, doctor came in, we talked about my weight loss, and he said he wanted me to put on a gown. This gown looked like it was made out of paper towels. And not Bounty. The cheap paper towels that break when you get them wet. Yeah, don't pour water on me - ROFL! Here's me sporting my awesome gown.
So the doctor FINALLY came back in to see me, him and his nurse. And Captain America was there. So I laid back on the table, and the doctor dude felt my nasty stomach skin. And poked and prodded and had me try to sit up, then announced that I had 2 hernias in my belly area, and separated stomach muscles. Dang, that's not good. He had me feel it, and I could feel something. Captain America didn't look too happy about it. He was worried.
So the doctor said that we had a case to present to the insurance. It wasn't a cosmetic reason to get it done. Sweet. Well, besides the fact that there's really something wrong with me, that is. He said it was probably due to so many pregnancies. Yeah, that would do it.
So he went and got the office camera, and took photos to submit to the insurance. Nice. I had to stand naked by the wall, rotating so he could get all angles. Let me tell you, THAT was uncomfortable. Me, naked, with 3 other people in the room. Sigh. The things we do to be beautiful. Oh yeah, and get medically necessary things done. hehehe. I don't want herniated stomach muscles...
So I FINALLY got to put my clothes back on, signed some papers, talked to the insurance lady, talked to a scheduling person, and got to go. They have me scheduled on September 29th, pending insurance. Apparently the insurance sometimes approves for this, and sometimes doesn't. They always should, since it's medically necessary, but it just depends on who you get. So keep your fingers crossed for me :)
Captain America and I stopped at Fallas on the way home, since it was RIGHT on the way home, looked around for about 1o minutes, and off we went. I found a few $3 shirts. I LOVE a good deal.
Maddie and her girls had gone to the thrift store by the time we got back home, and I worked on my Golden Oldies sale items for a bit. Captain America got lunch, and headed back to work a bit before noon.
When Maddie got back home, she and I and all 7 of our kids headed out to McDonalds, over by where we were today at the doctor. It was a NICE McDonalds with an inside playland. Here's a few pics from our afternoon.
Joe, the Birthday Boy, and I (sporting my new yellow shirt from Fallas ($2.00))
Hilary was babysitting a few of Laurie's kids today, and stuck at home because she had no car. So when her hubby came home for lunch, she dropped him back off after lunch, grabbed Laurie's 2 kids, dropped by my house to find my missing wallet (I was gonna need it to get back on post...), and joined us at McDonalds. We all had a fun time. So we had 12 kids between the 3 of us. Wow!
Here's Joe and Hilary
After everyone was done eating, we drove across the street to Fallas and looked around a bit. Jake spent his babysitting monies on GI Joe toys (the real ones), and Joe wanted to spend his birthday money on them too.
We were only there for about 30 minutes, which actually is a long time with 3 grown ups and 12 kids (aaaahhhh!), then headed home.
Captain America and us got home at about the same time, which was nice. I whipped up a b-day cake for Joe, and got it in the oven. We got the kids situated, and he and I and Joe snuck over to the commissary to pick up some ice cream. Joe picked out strawberry, and I wanted something with white ice cream and chocolatey gooey insides. Found the perfect one, and we headed home.
Jake and Eme had been in charge of the cake, and it was cooling nicely. I spread the coconut pecan frosting on it, and decorated it with army dudes. It looked pretty cool :)
I took a movie of us signing to Joe, but it's still on my camera. I'll get it off of there later :)
Here's Jimmy and I. Neither one of us felt particularly well. I didn't feel good from the carrots from yesterday, I think...
Joe was like, WHAAAAAAt is THIIIIIIIS? when Eme gave him a page with Meircats on it. hehehe. We always tease him that he's a meircat. ROFL! (and I don't care that that's misspelled...)
I ended up skipping on the cake. I wasn't feeling too good. I was a bit stressed out, and kinda felt sick to my stomach. So I skipped it. Looking back, I really wanted it. I still do. But I"ll resist. I'll have some cake and ice cream on Jake's b-day on the 31st.
So I sat down at my computer, and didn't move for the longest time. Kids played with friends, and played on Wii, and did whatever for the evening. Captain America had a game. I really wanted to go, but I couldn't get my big sale work done AND do the game. Sigh.
I got 3 WordArt bundles together for the Golden Oldies sale. 2 packs of 20 and 1 pack of 10. It took forever, but I liked how they turned out :) So no new stuff this week. But bundles. Cause EVERYONE likes bundles, right? hehe.
