Anyway, I drove Jake there, snuggled up with my pillow, and didn't fall asleep. I just laid there, and finally grabbed my phone and played on Facebook for a while. Hmpf! I'd come to like my 40 minute nap every morning. hehe.
We drove home, and I got Tom on the bus, and found Joe still asleep. I had 15 minutes to get him up and dressed and out the door. And Jim too. He was awake and fed, but not dressed. I just wish that I had a few more minutes in the mornings to get kids ready...
Anyway, I walked the little kids to the bus stop, chatted with the girls for a few, and headed home. I had about an hour to clean. Then Amanda and I were gonna go to the post office. I cleaned the bathroom, and did some dishes. And organized some stuff. And got dressed for the day.
Amanda and I went to the post office, then made a sonic run. I was needing some more caffeine in my favorite form, Diet Dr Pepper. hehe. And we made a quick trip to Big Lots. I needed a few things. And back home.
I baked some cupcakes, and got stuff all set up for the party. And Andrea called. And we got to chat for about 35 minutes. MISS that girl! She's such a great friend :) And soon it was time for the party!
We had SO much yummy food! It was a great time :)
Kari and Margot and Maggie and Amanda and her neighbor Jessica and me and Charlotte and Marcia from church. We had 8 girls and 3 kids there. It was a pretty good time!
We had a "gag" gift exchange, and this was my FAVORITE one. hehe. Margot went home with it. ROFL!
Maggie liked it too! hehe :)Maggie had AWESOME nails! We've planned a spa day at Kari's house tomorrow, and we're gonna get pirate nails too!
So I'd been having a slight headache before the party, and took a migraine pill, and felt much better. But it seemed to be coming back after the party. By 3pm, everyone had left, and I had about 10 minutes before Tom got home from school.
I went to get the kids from the bus stop at 3:30pm, and came back home. Kids did homework, but not chores. Luckily, the house was already clean! Woohoo! I tried to rest for a little bit, and took another migraine pill, in hopes that it would go away.
The kids had soccer, Jake was at the youth center (he'd been brave and just tried to get on the bus with no bus pass and it worked!), and Kari and I were supposed to walk the track. But I didn't feel good. I decided, though, that walking slowly for 45 minutes would be better than just staying home and doing nothing. Even feeling bad. So I headed out.
Poor Kari. I know that my not feeling well was gonna make her have a bad workout, but I was glad that she walked slowly with me. She took the last lap by herself, and a lot faster. I went for some water, and sat down for about 15 minutes. This nice raised area looked good, until I realized it was a manhole on closer inspection! hehe.
Soccer was over, and we headed out. We drove to the Youth center and picked up Jake, and headed back home.
The kids had about 30 minutes of free time, and I took a shower. And had kids come in and interrupt me about 10 times. What's up with that? Freakin' kids. hehe. It was supposed to be nice an relaxing. Oh well...
Soon it was bedtime, and I sent the kids to bed. Jake took Boxer on a walk, and I helped Tom with a homework project. All the kids were in bed by 9pm. I blogged, and watched a few episodes of Prison Break. I've decided that Dexter has too much bad language for me. Which is sad, because I was getting to like it. But I can't have all those bad words floating around in my head.... So I'm stopping that one. Prison Break seemed much more tame. ha!
Anyway, I'm done for the night. I'm hoping that my head feels better tomorrow. Our Spa Day at Kari's house ought to be nice! Kari is a trained masseuse! And my poor neck HURTS :)
