At 2:30am, I had a little boy come and crawl in bed with me. Poor little thing was so upset. Joe, bless his heart, had gone to bed with jammies that had a rip in the knee. And I guess that in the middle of the night, Jim's foot had gotten stuck in the hole, and he'd pushed himself off on them, and ripped them. They sleep in the same bed, you know...
Anyway, Joe was SO upset. He had to come and tell me how his favorite Jammies were ruined. So, since I knew that Joe was having some rough times at school recently, I figured that maybe sleeping and snuggling with mom would be a good thing for him.
This was a HUGE thing for me. Cause I don't EVER let kids into my bed. I can't sleep if kids are touching me. hehe. I really can't. So, from 2:30ish until 6:30ish, I had un-restful sleep. And was super tired when I woke up. But it was worth it. Because I could tell that Joe was happy. and he felt a lot better. Love ya, Joe!
Tom came in at 6:50am, and I asked him to go and turn on Jim's light. So he went in, turned on Jim's light, threw his coveres off of him, and tried to make him get up. Um, yeah, NOT what I directed him to do.... NO wonder Jim got up on the wrong side of the bed today. He was angry and grouchy and whining the rest of the morning. sigh.
We had family prayer at 7am, and got Tom off to the bus. Then got the kids dressed and fed and off to the bus at 7:15am. Jim was still mad. He refused to eat because it wasn't his favorite cereal. He couldn't find his shoes so he had to wear his "stinky sunday shoes". He couldn't find his homework. It was a stupid day, he said. Poor Jim.
The kids made it to the bus, and the moms stood around and chatted for quite a while. Today it was me and Rebecca and Kari. And we chatted for so long that before I knew it, it was time to go to Amanda's house to watch Eclipse! Oops!
I hurried back home, and realized that the kids had left the dog out of his kennel. And he'd gone into the out of limits kitchen, and knocked over my ceramic crock pot! Freakin dog. The crock pot fell on the floor and shattered. sigh. Not a happy camper.
I changed my clothes real fast, and headed over to Amanda's house for the movie party. Amanda was making crock pot Lasagna, and Kim brought stuff to make her crock pot roast. Me? Yeah, I wasn't htinking that far ahead. I did think to bring my laptop and design for a while. I got 1 wordart pack designed, though. So now I have 3 for next week. Oh yeah :)
We watched Eclipse, and filled Amanda in on all the stuff she'd missed. And by 10:30ish, we were all done, and it was time to jet. Amanda and Kim and I all headed out to the beauty college. (Just so you know, it's 11:16pm, and I can feel myself not making any sense. If I fall asleep, and start silly talking, scare me awake....) hehe.
Anyway, Amanda got her hair cute, and Kim and I got our gray hair retouched. They foiled her hair because it's a lot lighter than mine, and for me, they just covered the gray. My lady was awesome! She's thuper nice.
We chatted and had a grand ole time. She has a pretty high ranking enlisted hubby, and told me about how she's working at the commissary at the bagger, and loves it. and how she loves this job goo.
After my color was all done, and she'd blow dried my hair, we realized that kim was gonna be a LONG more time. And my hair lady realized what was going on. And asked if she could just play around with the curling Iron with my hair. Rather than just messing arounEd with the mannequin. Sounded good to me. LOL.
So I ended up with pretty ringlets for the rest of the day! SO NICE!!!
Here's a picture that I have of Amanda's step kid... Um, yeah, I fell asleep. This is NOT Amanda's step kid. This is Kim. Getting her hair done. ROFL!!!!! Sorry Kim and Amanda.
The beauty college is very inexpensive. I only paid $25 for my hair, plus tip. But we were there for HOURS! We didn't get back to post until around 3:00pm. My car was at Amanda's house, so Kim dropped me off there.
While we were at the beauty place, Amanda and I had gotten a text from Kari saying that Brian (Kari's hubby) was in an accident!! SO not cool! He was OK, but they were taking the other dude to the hospital. Some yahoo had run a red light on post, and totalled Brians' truck. Sorry, Brian! I know how much you LOVE your truck!!!
Amanda and I had some of her crock pot Lasagna for breakfast/lunch at her house, then headed to the bus stop. We chatted with the other parents, then I got a call from Jake's facility. They said that he'd probably get released today. I'd probably get a call tomorrow.
OK, gotta focus. Just fell asleep again! Wake up! Wake up! So the kids wanna play at the bus stop, over in the track area where Scotty exercises. Works for me. Kim and Kari and me and Amanda were all the just chatting and laughing and soaking up the warm sunbursts. We stayed for about an hour, then headed to our respective houses.
And I started to get my kids ready for the babysitters. I was going to visit Jake tonight. I had Eme walk over to Rebecca's house. I dropped Jim off at Kim's house. I dropped Tom off at the youth center with his book. He can check himself in there, and read for a bit.
Joe went to Leo's house. And Kari saved me, and asked Veronica if she had Kassie is she could get a copy of Joe's homework.... Thank goodness!
And amanda and I headed out to the hospital. It was funny, because she was chatting wit her mom/dad and later, my mom called to talk with me! Good one, huh? hehe. Our parents were checking out for us :)
We got to where we were going a few minutes early, so we popped our head into Howdy's on the way to the hospital. We got the new meds for Jake, and the paper.... Yup, I fell asleep. Now meds for Jake. No paper. We bought snacks!!! Because you can take unopened snacks into the room. jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjSo cool! Crap, I fell asleep again! This is getting bad....
OK, so Amanda and I got to the hospital, signed ourselves in, and went to see Jake. He was happy to see us, and to see the snacks. He's asked for Amanda and I together, because he said that he likes to watch the interplay between the two of us. hehe.
We had some serious conversations, and some goofy conversations. I hope that it's gonna go well when he gets out. I really hope. He's a very smart boy. I know that if he puts his mind to it, then he can achieve whatever he wants!... Did I tall asleep again? Or was I just rambling?
We got to stay for the hour to visit, then we headed back home. We check out a local park, and made plans to come back on Monday. The kids are gonna be SO excited! this park looks killer!
We continued driving, and swung by the movie theater on the way home. And popped our head in to buy 8 tickets to Breaking Dawn for tomorrow! Oh yeah! Now, to get the tickets to the girls, and to get my money back - hehe :)
Once back on post, we worked on gathering up my kids. Eme came home from Rebecca's house. We got tom from the Youth Center. And Eme too. We got Jim from Ms. Kim's house. And dropped them off at the house. Then headed over to Leo's house.
We ended up chatting with Kari and Brian for quite some time. Those guys are SO awesome! Kari had gotten with Veronica to get a copy of today's homework for Joe. They are SUCH sweethearts! Thanks, you guys :)
I tried to get the kids to bed as fast as I could. It was 9:30pm. Super late. I needed to load my store. And blog. And I needed sleep. Really bad. Something's gotta give. But yeah, NOT my get away weekend. Something ELSE has gotta tive. LOL :)
