Yeah, I'll come back on here tomorrow and fix this. I'm WAY too tired to even think about blogging...
OK, I don't know what happened last night, but I was SO exhausted that I just went to bed. I did get the freebie posted and the pictures uploaded for the blog, so I did do something, right? hehe.
I was up yesterday at 7:30am, and had the kids ready and to the sports camp by 8am, then headed back home. Jake and Jim and Joe were sound asleep, and slept until 9am (11 for Jake). So I had an hour of uninterrupted cleaning time. I started on the kitchen. The boys woke up, and watched some TV, and I kept them from trashing anything. hehe. Check out my finished result!
Jim was SO cute sitting on the couch, watching TV, petting the dog.
OK, so I got a comment about me posting lost of pictures and appearing Vain. Well, it IS my blog, so I would think that there could be pictures of me, right? This is my journal. I want my kids/ husband/family to see/remember pictures of me. And I don't only post good pictures of myself. I post bad/funny/embarrassing pictures of myself. hehe. I have been accused of over sharing things, you know. hehe.
I'm not posting pictures of myself on here to that y'all think I'm vain, or trying to get attention. Really, I'm just documenting my life. And it SHOULD include pictures of myself. Plus, my husband is 1/2 a world away, and he LOVES seeing pictures of me on here. Please don't begrudge him of that :)
Anyway, here's some blatant examples of my vanity in pictures (hehe). (You know, Prozac is a wonderful thing - I don't get offended at anything anymore - ROFL!)
Jim came in, saw my bright green eye shadow, and said that I looked like I was turning into an Alien mom. ROFL!
At 11:40, I got Jim and Jake and Joe ready, and headed to the Youth Center on main post to pick up Tom and Eme. I grabbed them, and we all headed over to Biggs. I dropped Jim off at the CDC, Tom, Eme, and Joe off at the SAS, and Jake off at the Youth Center. And I was kid free!!!
I headed back to main post, and met up with my girls at Amanda's house. We were going out to lunch. Kari is leaving for a month to visit family in Wyoming, so we wanted to have lunch with her before she left. Terra and Amanda and Kari and I all went to Cattle Barons. It was a WONDERFUL salad bar.
Terra (LOVE the slightly darker hair, my dear!)
And meWe had a TON of fun at lunch. I was feeling in a joking/playful mood, so when Terra headed to the bathroom, I put this on her water glass, wanting to see if she'd notice. ROFL! She eventually did!
And when Amanda went to the bathroom, Terra hid her phone, I hid her wallet, and Kari hid her purse. Yeah, HOW old are we? 13? ROFL! It was one of those days. We ended up sitting and chatting and laughing for a good 45 minutes after we finished eating. hehe.
We headed back home, and this is how I found the backyard. Boxer had managed to get himself ALL twisted up with his tie on cord. Oops. Gonna have to fix that next time I leave him on the cord...
And today was the day to tackle my room. I didn't take a "before" picture because I was embarrassed by the HUGE mess. But here's the finished result. And yes, this IS clean for me!
I went through all of my purses (I have SO many, all with a little bit of stuff inside) and found ALL of my missing lip glosses. I didn't realize I had so many.
At 4:30pm, Kari's kids came over, and we loaded up and headed to pick up the other kids. I got Jim from the CDC, and Joe and Tom and Eme from SAS, and dropped Tom off at the Youth Center with Jake. And headed to the pool. I'd brought swim clothes for everyone to change into. We met Amanda there, and got about 20 minutes worth of swimming time in.
And they blew the whistle for Thunder. Sigh. I REALLY think it was just an airplane. But 15 minutes later, yeah THAT was thunder. And it unloaded and rained quite a bit. Since we have no AC in the truck, we left the windows down, and got a bit wet as we drove back to Biggs to get Jake and Tom.
We headed to my house after getting them, and I let the kids watch a movie. And I fixed dinner. And Amanda came over, and we played on our computers while the kids watched the movie. And yeah, the reason I usually don't clean is because it upsets me when things are clean and the kids make messes. Whereas, if it's already messy, it doesn't bother me quite a bad. hehe. I almost cried when someone spilled coolaid ALL over my freshly mopped floor. LOL.
We had ice cream and brownies for dessert, and at 9pm, Kari came to pick up her kids, Amanda headed home, and I was exhausted. I got my pictures loaded, my wordart hosted, turned on some 24, and laid down on my couch. And yeah, that's all I did. I went to bed relatively early, and slept SO good last night. hehe. I was tired!
