Anyway, he chatted for quite a while with his dad, and finally, around 10am, we had breakfast and got ready for the day. It was a lazy day at home. Around lunch time, we fed the kids and ourselves, then loaded up in the truck and headed to Sonic for an ice cream cone. I signed up for the local Sonic's texts about offers and deals and such, and since it was 1/1/11, they were having vanilla ice cream cones for $0.11 today. Can't beat that!
Jim was SO mad that he didn't get to sit in the middle row, but that the dog did. Poor kid!
And Joe just didn't want his picture taken. Yeah, are we SURE he's my kid??
We went through the drive up, ordered 7 cones for $0.83 ish. And the girls working there looked at us like we were crazy. hehe. Yeah, I think their plan on getting people to come and order their sale item AND MORE didn't work out so well with us - hehe. What can I say? I'm cheap :)
Circle K is RIGHT across the street from Sonic, so Captain America and I decided that since Ice Cream wasn't really on our menu plan for the day, that we'd just eat the cones until we got across the street, then pass them back to the kids to be consumed. I got about 4 licks, and it was passed off. Captain America? Yeah, he'd eaten ALL the ice cream down to the cone. I don't know how he didn't have a MASSIVE brain freeze - hehe.
We ran into Circle K, filled up our Howdy's cups (hehe), and off we went, back home.
We got back in the truck, and the dog was SOOOO excited to see us. He stuck his head between the two of us, and gave me kisses - NASTY!!! Everyone else in the family LOVES it when the dog licks them on the face, but I haven't let him do it to me yet. Well, he got me today. And I somehow managed to capture a picture of the moment. Good thing, too, because it's not happening again! Ewwww!
The poor dog was SO sad he didn't get ice cream. But the kids sure loved it! hehe. Yeah, I was wishing for my ice cream back, but happily drank my Diet Dr Pepper all the way home.
Captain America moved the shelf that he built yesterday into the storage shed, and organized it. I worked on a designing project for an hour or so, and did some other computer type work.
At around 4pm, the older boys and Captain America started playing Battlefield on an Internet Party with Uncle Nathaniel (Uncle Fan), Uncle Randolph, and Uncle Lewis (all in the St Louis Area). They had SO much fun. My house was sure loud, though, let me tell you . hehe. I could hear them all talking from 3 different computers. Jim and Eme and Joe rotates though the one remaining laptop and the Wii. I think everyone had a GREAT time playing.
Me? I read. I've been trying to get into the Mortal Instruments books by Cassandra Clare for some time now, and haven't quite caught the spirit of it. Until the past few nights. I finished off the 2nd book last night, and as of tonight, I'm on page 441. I can't put it down! Such a great story :)
And it's late now. It's 12:12pm. We put the little kids to bed at 8:30pm, the big kids to bed at 10pm, and Captain America and I have been reading ever since.
And yeah, he and I both ate WAY too many sugar free candies today. And I figured that since I'd eaten SOOOO many, and I was gonna get diarrhea anyway, I might as well eat off the diet and eat junk. So yeah, my stomach is KILLING me now. Bad choices, I know. I'm not gonna do that again. I'm drinking plenty of water tomorrow, and ONLY what's on the menu. NO more back sliding, food wise, for me. This sucks. And it's stinky. I think if an innocent bystander walking into our bedroom right now, they'd DIE from toxic fumes. Seriously, I think I need to go and get Captain America's gas mask. ROLF! Hopefully it will all "pass" before 9am church tomorrow.... Otherwise, I'm not sure what we'll do - hehe. Don't sit near us, just as a precaution...
