Open Arms

Morning, you guys! How the heck are you??? Me? I'm good. But tired. It's almost midnight. How did it get so late again??? Good thing it's Sautrday tomorrow. So I can sleep in. Don't wake me up, you guys! Maybe I'll even take an Ambien so that I can sleep REALLY well. I think I need one - hehe. And deserve one - ROFL!

I woke up at 7:30m, and was SUPER tired. But I knew that Jake had horse camp, and I wanted to make sure that he was ready. I got up, got a little ready, and woke up Jake. And he said that he didn't wanna go. And I was SO tired that I just let him go back to sleep.

We hung out at home, and watched TV, and cleaned a little, but that's it. It was a VERY relaxing morning, and I SO needed it. We eventually got ready to go to Piano Camp, and Eme and Joe and Aunt Sue and I headed out. Jake was still asleep, Tom was reading, and Jim was watching a movie. Maddie and the girls were upstairs.

We dropped Eme and Joe off, and headed to do some errands. Our cell phone that we use as a house phone broke. So I took it to Verizon to see what they could do about it. And they said that it didn't have insurance. That none of our phones had insurance. Whaaaaat? That's not cool. I've used that insurance before! I know that we used to have it! And I don't remember it dropping. They gave me the phone number for the insurance place, and said that there was nothing else they could do for us. sigh. So I facebooked asking if anyone had an old crappy phone that we could have. ha!

Then we headed back to post, and stopped by the TMC to do an errand for Captain America. He wanted me to go to his BDE desk and find a phone number. And set up an appointment for something or another. So I found who I needed, and got the stuff all set up. And then it was time to head on over to pick up the kids.

Aunt Sue and I and one other Mom were the audience. And Joe and Eme and one other kid were the performers. ha! I videoed all of their songs, but am too tired at the moment to get them off of my phone. Tomorrow. I'll put them on facebook tomorrow. Here's a few pictures that I took, though :)

The recital started at 11:30 and got over at 11:40. Ha! Now that's my idea of a concert - hehe. The kids did VERY good. I got a photo of Eme and Sister Horton, but Joe didn't want one. Little stinker!

And we headed home. And got lunch for everyone, and spent the afternoon being lazy again. LOVE that. I made a Facebook fan page for Aunt Sue's beadwork. She does some amazing work! Click HERE to see her page and like it!

I'd told the kids to go and clean and do chores at some point in the day, and Tom, like usual, went upstairs to do something or another. And ended up back in his room, reading. Or napping. Or something. hehe. I guess it is summer, right?

At around 4pm, the grown ups needed to go and grab a drink from Howdys! We left Jake and Tom in charge of Jim and Eme (Joe was playing at a friends house), and went for a drink. And a VERY fast Goodwill run.

I'm such a perv. Guess what my first thought was when I saw this? Nasty! hehe.

And what's this??? Fake boobs in a box? hehe. Can you tell my hubby is deployed?

I found a few shirts, and a wallet for Jake. Cause he needed to have his High School ID with him at all times when he's at school. So I told him that I'd pick him up one. And I found some Heelies for Jim/Joe for $3.50.

This is so in case you can't remember what you're eating your soup in... ha! Aren't they cute, though?

We popped our heads into Family Dollar, and I found a new belt for Jake, and we got some Ice Cream sandwiches to share. Yum! Then we headed home. I started cleaning up, and then, right as I was about to start thinking about dinner, Tom came to me, SUPER sick.

So he wasn't just hiding from chores after all. He'd been sick! Silly kid hadn't told me. He had a fever, and was burning up. I took his temp, and it was 103.2 Crap! I called Tele-nurse, and got him some gatorade and motrin. And while she was on the phone, I asked about Jim. Because he had earaches for the past few days. Sure, he was a little bit better today, but who knew when it was gonna come back...

It was 7:30pm, and tie for the little ones to go to bed. Maddie stayed home to get them down, Jake was supervising Joe and Eme, and Tom and Aunt Sue and Jim and I headed to Urgent Care on 54 and McCombs. There's a new one out there.

We pulled in the parking lot, and the building was in a strip mall. SO funny :) We went in, signed in, and waited. And it was only about 30 or less minutes before we were called. Jim watched some Backyardigans on my iPhone, and Tom laid down over 2 chairs and snuggled on my lap.

And then it was our turn. They got the kids vitals, and asked what was the problem. And then we were put in exam room 2. It was SO tiny. And after about 5 minutes, they came and moved us to a bigger room. Thank goodness!

The nurse came in and did a preliminary check of the boys, and then about 10 minutes later, the doctor came in. He checked Tom first, and ordered a Strep kit. Which, luckily, came up negative. But his throat was super icky. And one ear was a little red.
Joe's turn was next. His throat was good, but his nose and ears were a bit red. The doctor said that they were not contagious. Thank goodness! And prescribed them antibiotics and ear drops. Sounded good to me.

We loaded up, and headed to McDonalds next door. And grabbed a super quick dinner, then headed to Walgreens. And dropped off the prescriptions. The lady said that it would be about 20 minutes. Too long to wait inside, but too short to go home. So I went back to the car, and we waited.

Oh yeah, and when I walked out of Walgreens, my shoe broke. Randomly, out of no where, the freakin' shoe breaks! I need to gorilla glue it, I think. Because they are SO comfortable! Well, when they're not broken. ha!

We waited in the car for what felt like forever, then went to the drive up window. And waited for another 15 minutes in line. Then FINALLY got all 3 meds. And paid, and headed back to post. Jim fell asleep in the car, but not before we could give him the first dose of his meds. Tom too.

We got home, unloaded the car, and put the kids to bed. I gave Tom and Jo their ear drops, and had Jake take his pill, and then go to bed. It's now 12:43pm. And I'm SO tired. I wanna sleep in forever tomorrow. Ha! We'll see :)
