So I woke up this morning SUPER tired. I don't know why, but I sure was. I read my scriptures, did my morning routine, said my prayer, and went out to get the kids ready. We had breakfast, got kids dressed, backpacks packed, and kids out the door at 7:30am. Jake started school, Jimmy played, and I went back to sleep. Cause I was SO sleepy.
And I woke up at 9am. And felt a LOT better. Captain America had come back home at some point, and was getting ready to go back to work. He had a HUGE test today, and was a bit stressed about it. They were gonna study for it more this morning.
Jimmy and I left a little after 10am, and went and got gas for the truck, then came back home. We hung out here until the bus at 11am, then Jake and I went to Dollar tree and Walmart. I needed bread from the Dollar Tree. And found a bunch of other essential "Crap" too. hehehe.
At Walmart, I returned a pack of ink cartridges for my printer. They were broken. And got a new one. No hassles, so that was good. And I bought a new EHD, because mine is broken. Apparently, I MAY be able to retrieve some of the info off of it, but I don't know how. Sigh. At least my designing junk is still on my laptop with the broken screen, so I didn't lose any of that stuff.
I got some "personal hygiene" items (I hate it when they're out of what I really like) and a few other essential things, paid at the electronics counter, and Jake and I headed back home. We had lunch, and I designed for about an hour before Jimmy got off of the bus. I now have 2 WordArt packs done for the week. Good for me, huh! I'm excited about getting ahead of my work. Thursdays turn into a SUPER huge day when I have to design for 3-4 hours at a time. It's a lot better to break it up during the week :) Captain America thinks so too :)
We got Jimmy from the bus at 2:30pm, and got everyone a quick snack. We hung up some Halloween decorations that we'd bought at the Dollar Tree, and Jimmy posed in front of it. Cool, huh? Thanks, Jake, for helping me hang them up and taking photos of Jimmy! You're the best :)
So now I'm waiting for Joe to get home off of the bus, and then need to pick up Tom and Eme from Afterschool PE. Oh yeah, and recipies! I can give you guys the Taco Bake one off of the top of my head :)
1 pack of corn OR flour tortilla, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 can tomato soup
1/2 cup milk
2 cups shredded cheese
1 lb ground beef
1-2 cups salsa
Brown ground beef and diced onions. In large bowl, combine tortillas, soup, milk, cheese, beef, onions, and salsa. Put into casserole dish, and bake at 350 until heated throughout, cheese is melted, and brown on top. Serve with sour cream.
OK, I'm back from picking up Tom and Eme from AQ (Afterschool PE. What a dumb name - I wonder what it stands for - ha!). And I just have to say, that boys are nasty. All the farting and burping is gross. hehe. Not that I don't fart or burp - ROFL! I just don't get as much pleasure out of it as they do. Or expect OTHER people to get pleasure/enjoyment from it - hehe. You moms of boys will know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. And you moms of girls only will just think that we're nasty :)
I got a card in the mail today from Holland! How cool is that :) One of my blog readers had sent me a "I'm thinking of you" card. It was SOOOO sweet :) My 10 year old thought it was especially awesome :) Thanks, Suzan!
And when I first got out of the hospital, I got a card from another blog follower. You guys rock! Thanks so much for all of your support and care and kind words. It really means a lot to me!
Oh yeah, and Captain America stopped by the house to get dinner to take back to work, and said that he PASSED his test! I was so proud of him! He seemed very relieved :) Glad that it was over, and that he didn't have to restudy and take it again. Pfew!
