Bringing Up Baby

Hey there guys. Quite the busy day at the Harty house. I didn't know it was gonna be quite the madhouse it turned out to be when it started, but dang if it wasn't!

I got up at 5:25am, and headed out to Seminary with Jake. And fell back asleep in the parking lot. But ended up playing on Pinterest the last few minutes because I was freezing. See how cold I'm looking. This is me freezing!

Jake got in the car, and we headed back to post. I got Tom off to the bus, and got Jim and Joe all ready for the bus. Eme, thank goodness, was already ready.

And off to the bus we went. The kids got on the bus, and the moms chatted. There was a new family that moved into the new housing down the block. The mom seemed pretty nice. They had 5 kids, oldest was in the 3rd grade, youngest was 1. I remember those days. hehe. I'm glad I'm where I am now, though. hehe :)

I went home, saw Jake off to school, and got ready to go grocery shopping. Because we had no food in the house. Nothing at all. I dorked around at the house for a bit, found an outfit with white accessories (and my white Miche purse).

Anyway, Amanda came and picked me up, and we headed to Walmart. We grabbed a sausage biscuit and a soda from McDonalds (check out the table-less booth!)
and started shopping :)

And my cart starting filling up. Funny how that happens, huh? Deeper and deeper into the bowels of Walmart we went...

And we were almost done.... Here's Amanda's cart. Yeah, you can totally tell that she only has 1 kid, huh? hehe :)
And here's my cart. All filled. That's how you know when to stop shopping, right? Because you can't possibly fit another product in. LOL.




Nice face, huh? Maybe this face is the reason that I get weird looks all the time. IT's supposed to say, Crazy amount of groceries, huh? Unfortunately, it just says "CRAZY". hehe :)
I have too much fun at check out stands...
Isn't King Sized Minis an Oxymoron???
Amanda went first, and paid for all of her groceries, price matching the soda, 4 packs at $2.50 a 12 pack. Then it was my turn. I got all the groceries, 2 new books, a new shirt, a school hoodie for Jake for xmas, and a new pair of jammies for just under $300. Not bad, huh? Considering I haven't been grocery shopping in about 3 weeks or so...

We got to Amanda's car, and went to put away the bags, and found a leaky milk! So back inside we headed. Yeah, SO not happening!
No use crying over spilt milk! We exchanged it for a different one:) I definitely got my workout today.... hehe. OK, so maybe not. lol!
Next stop was Walgreens. Amanda had a buy 2 Cover Girl cosmetics products, get $8 off coupon, and Walgreens had a buy one get one 50% off sale running! Sa-weet! So we were gonna go get some make up. But first, hairy lips???? I wasn't sure what this was at first... hehe :)


We ended up with 8 different Cover girl products (foundations, eye liners, eye shadows, blushes) for under $8. Retail at over $50. Good deal, huh??? I bought some new Orange and White and Yellow nail polish, since we'd run out of time for a nail fill. And if I was gonna have to have funny nails for another week, then I wanted to have better candy corn nails. hehe. Better polish is worth it!

We headed up to the front to pay, and I found this. Um, yeah, I know it's an apple, but WHAT is on it. That ain't no caramel apple! What the heck???
And I got this precious text from my mom and Maddie today of baby Jack! Isn't he SO cute!!!
Amanda dropped me off at home, and helped me carry in all my groceries. She headed home, and I put all my stuff away. Dang, it takes forever. I finally got it all put away, and I put on my new shirt. Isn't it cute??? I bite. ROFL! I thought it was too funny :)


I gathered up my stuff for the library, and my nail polish, and headed over to Amanda house. I showed her how to put on the 4 colors of eyeshadow, and then pained my candy corn nails. Check out her pretty blues and greens!
Soon, it was time for the bus. And I parked my truck WAY too close to this "tree". Yea, I call it a tree cause it's taller than me. Hey, our standards here in Far West Texas are VERY loose... hehe.
The girls chatted, and finally the bus came. Check out ALL the kinders with their fire hats! Must have been fire prevention week. lol!
We got the kids, ran home really fast to grab a few treats and Tom, and headed to the library. Amanda brought drinks, Kari made banana muffins, and I brought carrots. We had yummy snacks and watched the movie Harry Potter 2 with the kids. I worked on an Invite to an FRG coffee for Kari, and we all chatted and had a grand time. If the internet had been going faster, it would have been SO much easier. LOL.

My kids were SO excited that the magazine with Austin on the cover was ALL over the library. Hehe. I had to go and see what they were talking about. It was the Bliss NOW magazine. ha! Good one!
Harry Potter is a SUPER long movie, so we didn't get home till around 6pm from the library. We cooked Sausage Egg Cheese English Muffins for dinner, and then Leigh, the neighbor lady, knocked on the door. She was letting me know that the commissary had DDP for $0.33 a bottle for 48 oz sodas. Sweet! And of course we had to chat about kids and sports and school and such.

But then, we were SUPER late for practice. I got Jim ready, finished off the food, had Joe grab his homework, grabbed the food, gave Tom and Jake and Eme the direction for staying home, and off we went. And we still made it with 1 minute to spare.

I spent the whole time at the game working on Kari's invite, and yeah, there was SO much info on the thing. We decided that it had the amount of info that a Flyer should have, not an Invite. Invites have a TON less info than a flyer does. Good to know, right? hehe.

Anyway, we stayed a few minutes after practice, but finally got it done. And as I'm typing this at 11:40pm, I just realized that I failed to send the file to Kari! I'm SO sorry, hon! You totally needed that sooner than later - I suck! I'm sorry :(

Anyway, we loaded up to head home, and Kari left just before me, and my car wouldn't start. Something about needing to jiggle the part you stick the key in. And it totally wouldn't turn over. OR move. Or wiggle or nothing. Sigh. I tried a few times. And waited. And tried. And waited.

Yeah, I texted Kari to see if she'd come and pick me up.... No response. I texted Amanda. No response. I put it on Facebook. No response. Crap! Now what? the little boys were starting to panic.... I knew that we'd get sooner or later, so I wasn't really worried. Someone would eventually find us - ha!

Kari called, and wanted to know if we still were stranded. Yup. So she headed on over, and brought Brian with her. Thank goodness! He hopped right in the car, and jimmied with it like he knew what he was doing, and it started up! The thinks that if he replaces some something, that it will fix the problem. Um, ok. Be my guest! Go for it! As long as my car starts when I need to go somewhere, I'm all good! hehe :)

They headed out, and so did we. I got my kids to bed, and let Jake stay up and watch a movie. The Freshman and Seniors at Austin High School don't have to be to the bus tomorrow until 11:30am. Some testing or something. Who knows? All I know is that we're skipping Seminary, and sleeping in! Thank goodness!

I put on my new jammies, and sat down to blog. See, aren't I cute!


No, it's not shiny metal pants, it's my laptop. I'm not quite that cool. ha! I watched a little bit of Lord of the Rings with Jake, then went in my room to watch some TV. Soon, Captain America was on Skype and we chatted for a bit. They had a situation in the past few days, and it's been a trying time for everyone. He was still having a bit of a hard time. Poor guy. He's getting ready to go on 24 hour shift, but hopefully after that, we can talk for a while. I'll be glad when this deployment if over. It sure takes a toll on a person, you know...

It's now almost midnight. So much for getting my beauty rest... I guess if I go to sleep right now I can get 7 hours. And that's pretty good, right??? Wednesday, Jake starts school late, I'm getting a massage, kids have Cub Scouts, I wanna swing by the Scout Shop, I wanna finish planning for my Cub Scout lesson, and I'm going with Amanda to the mall. I wonder what other adventures we'll have??? Cause you know me! Adventures await me at EVERY turn!!!
