One In A Million

Hey there girlies! How goes your day? Was it a good Tuesday? Mine was pretty good :)

I heard the kids outside my room, playing or carrying on or something at about 6am. And yeah, my alarm wasn't going off until closer to 7am. So they kept coming in, asking silly questions, and I kept trying to sleep :)

I finally gave up a little before 7am, and went out to get the kids ready. It was supposed to be cold during the day, so I made sure people had real coats on (hehe to my northern friends!) and scarfs or gloves or whatever they wanted. Warm is good.

And I went back to bed after the bus. But yeah, I didn't really go back to sleep. But I did try. And about 30 minutes later, Captain America called on Skype, so I chatted with him for a while. About 30 minutes. It was nice talking to him.

And then, because it was #1 priority for the day, I took a shower :) It felt SO good. I can't even remember when was the last time I did (yeah, probably shouldn't be saying that....). And it was shave everything day, so now I can go swimming again - ROFL! I know, I know, TMI...

And I blow dried my hair, and put on make up, and some cute clothes, and even if I still had a cold, I felt SO much better! Not to mention the Sudafed was non-drowsy... That's gotta help, too :)

And soon, it was time to take Jim to the bus. He wanted Spikey hair today, so after a bath, I gelled his hair, and he was SO happy with it. And we drove on up to the bus stop. And it was SO cold (30 degrees) that we stayed in the truck the whole time :) hehe. And, of course, took pictures :)

And he got on the bus, and I headed off to the Dollar Tree to look for things for Captain America's Valentines box :)

I picked up a few things, and some more stuff for the 100 days of school (cause I can't make up my mind what to use - hehe), and headed to Walmart. I wanted to get some cucumbers (since the commissary didn't have any yesterday) and a few baking supplies. I wanted to put cookies into Captain America's box.

I got home a little after noon, and had lunch with Jake. We watched a Star Trek movie, and I worked on this project. Cool pictures, huh?

My mom is in Young Womens in her ward, and took pictures of all the girls, and sent them to me, and I got them ready to go to the store, 6 to a 4x6. Then, they're gonna cut them apart, and make hearts out of it. I have a pic on here to show you what it should look like. But I just used my printer at home. It would be cooler on photo paper :)

And Sharon made this COOL layout for me :)
Here ya go, huh? Isn't it kinda cool???
I walked to the bus to pick up Jimmy, and about FROZE to death! Seriously - hehe :) It was only 30 something, and I was FREEZING! I needed more than a jacket, I think! Jim and I hurried home, and the next hour just ZIPPED by! I wanted to make cookies for the kids at the library, but yeah, the recipe I picked was a total BOMB! The dough ended up looking like biscuit dough before you add the milk. Seriously. I did try and cook a batch, and while they tasted ok, they were crap. Kinda looked like bologna slices. Hehe. We joked that they were bologna cookies :)

So no cookies to take to the library. This was the 2nd week in a row that the cookie idea was a bust. Maybe 3rd try is the charm, right? Next week...

Anyway, I picked up the kids from the bus stop, and headed over to the library. Capri Suns, Popcorn, and a movie about Alligators and Crocodiles. It was pretty gruesome, acutally. Baby alligators getting eaten by bigger things (or other alligators), or brother/sister birds pecking the little one to death, then throwing it to the crocodiles. Yeah, SO nasty. But I guess that's nature, right...

After the movie, the kids begged and convinced me to go to the library section, and look at books. And we stayed there longer than we should have. Because soon it was too late to go home before taking Tom to babysitter class. Crap...

So we headed over to the Sky's building, but then I realized that I had to feed him first. And I couldn't very well go through McDonlads drive up and NOT get dinner for everyone else too. So I got everyone burgers and fries and Tom got a drink to take with him. And we headed off to the Sky's building, 15 minutes late. I HATE being late....

And I walked in with Tom, to show him the room to go in, and there was no class there. I know I asked the lady at the registration office if it was at the Sky's building. Maybe she meant a different one. Sigh.

So I asked the lady at the office where I should go. And she didn't know. But she thought it was across from the soccer fields on post, building 195. Great. No we were REALLY gonna be late... So Tom and I loaded back up in the truck with the kids, and back to post we headed.

And I texted Laurie, and she said it was building 131. Yeah, that's REAL close to 195, right? hehe. But I found the building, took Tom inside, and found the right place. And left him with the other kids :)

And we headed home. Laurie was gonna pick up kids this week, and I'm gonna get them next week. At least the class is right here on post, and not CLEAR across town at the Sky's building. MUCH more do-able...

And when we got home, I let Eme do the lip pictures too. She thought it was SO much fun :)

I spent about an hour helping kids with homework, and doing chores, and cooking myself dinner (no McDonalds for me), and just hanging with the kids, and then it was time for my Scrapbookgraphics chat to start! So I left Jake in charge, told the kids once they got their own chores done that they could turn on an episode of Avatar.

And the chat was SO much fun!!! There was an awesome group of girls there, and we chatted and played games and stayed longer to chat some more :) And then, I saw that someone was trying to break into my room. See, I'd locked the door - ha! Trying to keep the riff raff out, you know... Anyhow, Jim came in, and said that his tooth hurt. And I looked in his mouth, and he was MISSING A BOTTOM TOOTH!!!
I hurried and got off the chat, and went out with the kids. See that white thing he's holding? Apparently, he tried to put it in between his teeth, and it got stuck. So he pulled and pulled, and finally got it loose. And yeah, the tooth must have came too. We never did find the tooth. Nastiness. Teeth are gross!

So we finished cleaning up, and I put the kids to bed. Late. It was almost 9pm by the time they went to sleep. And no watching Chuck for Jake and Tom and I since it was getting so late. I just sat down on the couch with my laptop and my dog. hehe.

Oh yeah, and check out the snow. Whaaaat? It's not supposed to snow here, you know... I'm hoping it's gone and it's warm by morning, but the kids are hoping that they cancel school. hehe :)And now it's 10:30pm, and I'm done. Once my show is over, I'm going to sleep. And we'll see what happens in the morning :)

Thank you so much this is a beautiful WA! I have a question - how do you get the sprinkle things to stick on lips - butter? Vaseline? I wanna try that too!

Thanks again!

Peggy said...

Thanks for the word art. I want to know too, tell us the tip for getting the colored dots to stick. I'd like to try it.

Mary said...

What great photos you took of yourself and two of your children.I love the heart that you made using photos of yourself. Very crafty.

If you think 30 is cold then you would not want to live in NH. We have been living with very cold temps this winter.As for snow we have gotten a total of 15 inches of it in the past 2 days. :) Enjoy your day.
