I woke up at 6:35, 6:45, and 6:55 am, then read scriptures, said prayers, and got kids ready for school. And out the door and yeah, everyone else was still asleep! So yeah, I totally went back to bed too. Don't roll your eyes. You know you would too. hehe.
So I woke up when Jimmy woke up, and we hung out in the living room. I think the child must be catching a cold, because he's usually the first one up. Poor little dude.
Jake slept in way too long (yeah, gonna have to wake him up earlier tomorrow), but eventually did come downstairs. I worked on my computer for a bit, and Jim played the Wii for a bit.
Oh yeah, check out this kids candy bowl. Yeah, one the one hand, I'm glad that it's all gone. Because I don't have to try and keep him out of it (yeah, I didn't do very good at THAT one, obviously...).
Remember how full it was on Halloween..... Sigh. I'm DEFINITELY coming up with a better plan next Halloween. Letting them "eat their fill" isn't working out too well for me... I honestly thought he'd stop on his own... I was wrong, apparently...
And off Jimmy went. And yeah, I TOTALLY wore these socks and flip flops ALL day long today. Because I'm just cool like that...So I hung with Jake for a bit, and we watched an episode of Fringe while I designed for a little while on the computer, and then I printed off my shopping list. Today was the day. I'd put it off long enough...
I went over my list and crossed off the stuff that I already had, and figured out what I needed, and headed out. I had about an hour to get to the store, shop, pay, and meet Jim at the bus at 2:30pm.
So I grabbed a Diet Soda from the fridge (yeah, NOT the real thing... hmpf!), and headed out to the commissary
And they had bags of bananas on sale! Score! Captain America was running low on frozen bananas for his shakes, and when you can buy a bag for $0.99, it's SO much cheaper than $0.44 a lb. So I bought 5 bags. hehe.
I paid, and loaded up, and headed home. And still had 15 minutes before the bus. Score! Jake and I carried in all the groceries and put them away. And I ran to the bus stop to get Jim.
I visited with Maggie for a bit while we waited for the bus, and they gave us a ride home. And I got to work bagging out bananas. Not the most fun job I've ever done. ha! But they needed done today, because they were already starting to turn brown.
I designed for a bit longer, and Joe came home at 3:30pm. I went at 3:45pm to pick up the kids from AQ, and after dropping Bella off at home and coming home, it was 4pm. I finished up my computer work, and listened to the kids fight about electronics. I think we need a "no electronics" day to convince them that it's a PRIVILEGE not a right...
Around 5pm, I started on dinner. I made Grilled Leftover Meatloaf and cheese sandwiches for the kids. I thought they looked good. And guess what? Jimmy LOVED it. That child doesn't eat ANYTHING I cook, unless it's treats. And the other kids didn't care for it terribly, but ate it.
We spent a quiet evening at home. Eme played with Kayleigh (Leighs daughter) for a while, and we eventually put in a movie. I took a bath and read my book for a while, and then we did scriptures and family prayer, and I sent kids to bed.
Joe and Jim and I sat in Jim's room and read little books for a while, then I snuggled with Jim for about 10 minutes. He and I laid on his bed and chatted and talked and it was SO nice.
And then all the kids were in bed, and I came back out to get on my computer. And I saw that Andrea was online, and we chatted for a while. She's SUCH a great friend :) Even from South Carolina, she's around to keep me company. Love ya, hon!
And now it's 9:30pm. I'm gonna design a quick freebie, then either 1) go to bed, 2) watch a movie, 3) read a book. Not sure what I'm gonna do yet :)
But before I go, here's my 30 Days of Thankfulness, Day 2. I'm thankful for my husband, Captain America. He's truly my best friend, and I love him! I got to text with him a little bit today. Maybe we'll be able to chat on the phone for a little while tomorrow :)
