Trip to the Zoo

OK, so this blog post is gonna suck. Just warning you now. hehe. At 11:30pm, I started blogging. THEN remembered that I hadn't loaded my store yet. WHAAAAT? How could I forget that??? I guess it was because Captain America had the day off, and the kids had the day off, and my day was "off". Fun, but off. hehe.

Anyway, I was SO glad that everything was designed, and only needed loaded in the store. Thank goodness! SO, here's my new stuff for the week. I'm offering the Alphabet Series in 5 chunks or in a bundle. Enjoy!

So here's the speed version of my day - hehe. Captain America and I were up late last night, and so we slept in. Yeah, till like 10:30AM. And so my eating was off. Cause I didn't get breakfast until 10:30am. I had my yogurt and my apple, and got ready for the day. And we got the kids ready, and gave Jim and Joe hair cuts. They looked mUCH better :)

And at a little after noon, we all headed out to the Zoo and to McDonalds for lunch. It was gonna be a fun day :)

Here's Eme in her new jacket, and Tom, and his picture that he drew of Eme
And me playing with the Vampire teeth...
I french braided Eme's hair for the day :)
And here's us at McDonalds. This is the same one that we went to on Joe's birthday. With Maddie and the girls. We had fun!

Everyone drinking soda and taking pictures of themselves, just like me! hehe
The kids got tops in their Happy Meal, and we had fun playing with them :)
Snortin' Coke? hehe

And then we go to the Zoo. We paid $70 for a year membership, free admission. Well, not free, if you pay $70, right? But it was cheaper that way than paying for everyone separately :)

And yeah, I took almost 200 photos. And no, I'm not gonna post them all here. hehe. But they were SO good. They're on my Facebook page, if you wanna look :)

HAD to put this one on here - AAAAHHHH! Tiger Attack!!!

So I put it out there on my Fan Page for someone to scrap some pages with my zoo pictures, and Dara took me up on my offer :) And here's a few that she made with my "trip to the zoo" pictures. Cook, huh???

We were at the zoo for about 2 hours, and saw the whole thing. It's a small zoo. A 2 hour zoo. hehe. It was the perfect size. Not too big, but big enough. Liked it :)

We headed out a little after 4pm, and saw Flags on the way out, and took pictures in honor of Veterans day. Yeah, I'm not a Veteran, but I'm married to one, so that counts, right?

Captain America by the Army flag :)
And we came back home. And I started feeling weird. Emotional, and sad, and a little depressed. Very strange. I hadn't felt like that in WEEKS. What was up?

I got home, made Homemade pizza for the kids, and went to my room. In tears. And I didn't know why. I was just upset. Captain America tried to help, but I was all upset. I prayed, and decided that I needed to eat. Because my eating was off all day. I'd had yogurt and 2 apples and a salad at McDonalds. And that was it. Not good.

But it took me a while to decide to cook dinner. Because I was feeling SO sad and strange. Captain America recognized it, sent me to my room with his laptop to watch an episode of Lie to Me, and he cooked me steamed veggies with spray butter and garlic powder, and a Turkey Burger on a bun with lettuce and tomato. What an AWESOME guy.

And you know what? About 10-20 minutes after eating, I felt normal again. hehe. See, it was just the food. I've found that after having a stint with NO eating, yeah, I can't skip meals. At all. It messes with my mood. And my emotions. So I need to make sure that if I do sleep in, I get up and eat, then go back to sleep. ha!

I came back out with the family, and hung for a while. Captain America was playing Guitar Hero, and some of us were watching him, and some of us were playing video games on the computer. Eventually, we said family prayer and put the kids to bed, left Jake in charge, changed clothes, and Captain America and I headed out on a Mini Date.

We went to BJ's for dessert. Because I've been thinking about Pizzookies for a few days now - hehe.

Here's me with WATER. Aren't you proud?

See, Pizzookie. And some strawberry thingy. Captain America ordered that. I got the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pizzookie
Captain America

My Pizzookie
The Strawberry thingy
And yeah, we were supposed to eat 1/2 of each. But I ate a little more than 1/2 of mine, and Captain America ate everything else. ROFL! It's ok. The old me would have fought for my 1/2. But I'm not eating out of control anymore - hehe. 1/2 a Pizzookie was good enough for me. And I had a bite of Captain Americas strawberry thing. It was good, but I liked the Pizzookie better :)

We ate dessert, and paid, and out we went. But not before I donned Captain America's hat and snapped a picture. hehe.
And we came home, and watched episodes of The Office. Until 11:30, when I realized that I hadn't blogged OR loaded my store. Sigh.

And now it's 1:30am. And I'm sleepy. The office is still on, and Captain America fell asleep next to me on the couch and is lightly snoring. hehe. We had a busy day tomorrow. Kids go to school at 7:30am, we're going grocery shopping in the morning, have couples counceling at 11am, lunch after that, Captain America and I are going on a hike, then get kids from school around 2:30pm. See, busy day.

Let's home I have stamina for it all - hehe. And I promise to eat at the right times. Because I'm not gonna let what happened today happen again... That sucked :)

What a great day, but don't you go skipping meals again!! Sometimes though, everyone needs a little me time as well as being a wife, mum and (in your case) wortart extrodinaire! Make sure you have those me times. I need a Brent to make me dinner when I feel low too, can you clone him please? ;) Love Sarah xoxo

You sound like me! I swear my moods are tied to my blood sugar. Low blood sugar, low mood. If I indulge in a high sugar food... I get seriously giddy. Sometimes I almost feel drunk. *lol*

Those zoo layouts are amazing! That woman is super fast. It takes me 2 or 3 days to do one layout. I'm super slow! :-)
