Howdy! How was your Thursday ??? Great? Good? I sure hope so. Mine was pretty good, but very tiring :)
Oh yeah, check out Pillow Man :) hehe. There's about 4 pillows in the middle, with "Elmo" on top of them. Elmo is what Captain America and I named the red fluffy blanket... Because it's like a blanket made out of skinned Elmos....
Anyway, I woke up at my regular time, said prayers, and got the kids all ready and out the door at 7:30am. Except Eme. She wasn't feeling well, so I let her stay and sleep. We'd deal with going to the doctor later.
I relaxed for the morning, and went and got ready around 8:30am. And the girls came over a little before 9am. We left Rowan and Jim with Jake, Eme watched a movie in my room so she didn't spread germs, and we went on our hike.
And it was SUPER windy! Crazy windy! But sunny and beautiful outside! hehe :)We got home in time to put Jim on the bus, and then Jake and I spent the lunch hour together. I read for a little while, and he watched a show. And we had lunch. And around 12:30pm, Maggie and I went to Walmart and Lowes. I needed a few supplies for our Craft Day on Friday. Me and my goofy faces, huh?
We went to Lowes and got some 6 foot boards, and we went to Walmart to grab some ribbons and some brads and some fabric for Maggie. She found the COOLEST leathery looking black fabric. Her jewelry board is gonna be SWEET!
And we headed home, and picked up the kids from the bus, and then I got ready to take Eme to the doctor. Jake was gonna watch Jim, and then watch Joe and Tom once they got off the bus.
So we loaded up, and Eme and I headed to Southwest Urgent Care. She was complaining of a headache and her ear hurting. Sounded like an ear infection to me :)
We got called into the room SUPER fast, then waited in there forever. And I SO wanted to take a nap. Cause I was SO sleepy.
Eme was pretty bored too. She played her laptop for a while, and I saw her dozing a bit too. Not in this picture, though - LOL!
The doctor finally came in, looked in her ears and said they were fine. Then looked in her throat, and said that the had pus on her tonsils, and it looked like Strep. Great! She didn't complain of a sore throat. They ran the test, and within 2 minutes, we had a positive strep result. We grabbed the prescription, and headed back home.
I got home, got Eme situated, and got the little boys all ready for hockey. No time for dinner, we'd grab something on the way home. Eme and Jake stayed home, and Tom and Jim and I headed out to hockey. I forgot my coat at home, and realized that I was gonna FREEZE!
We stopped at the Walgreens that was nearest the way to the hockey rink, and they had a sign in the window that said "The Pharmacy has moved across the street near the Church's Chicken". Whaaaaaaat? OK, so we went across the street, and found the Church's Chicken, and yup, there was a trailer, with the Walgreens sign on it. Strange, but whatever. It works. So I dropped off the prescription, and off to hockey we went.
I got the boys all geared up and skated up, and Tom and I sat in the bleachers, playing on our laptops. I got 2 WordArt packs designed, and FROZE! Eveuntaully, I held my laptop real close with it on, so that the heat from it could warm me up. SO not forgetting my coat next time - hehe.
Kari showed up a few minutes before practice got over. She'd had to drop Leo off at Hockey, drop Josephine off at Soccer, come back to get Leo, then go to pick up Josephine. Crazy busy schedule, chickA! And I thought mine was bad :)
We got to chat for a few minutes, then gathered up the kids. And yeah, Jim lost his gloves. Crap. Hopefully someone turns them in after practice, and we get them on Saturday. Because I don't wanna buy new hockey gloves.
We loaded back up in the car, and headed back towards home. Stopping at Walgreens trailer to get the meds. And then, since Little Cesars was in the same parking lot, we grabbed a few pizzas. And we got home, and I had the kids eat the pizza and clean up a little, and I went for a shower. Because I was FREEZING and needed a shower. And a shave everything day :) hehe.
And felt SO much better when I got out. Jake and Tom had put the little kids to bed for me, and we sat on the couch and watched an episode of Chuck. I loaded my store, and started my blog. And watched the latest episode of Glee. And here it is, 9:47pm. I'm almost done with my work. And I only have about 15 more pages in my book left. So I'm not sure what I'll do tonight after I'm finished.
