Well, I have been feeling a tad bit congested as of late. And decided that I was gonna nip it in the bud before it developed into something more. So I took niquil the other night. And slept like a baby. hehe. The right dose, this time. Did I tell you I accidentally took a double dose the other night??? hehe. THAT'S not gonna happen again :)
Anyway, I woke up around 10:30 am. Well rested. And Facebooked with Captain America for a bit, then went to get the kids ready for church. And at 11am, I tried to get Jake to wake up. And yeah, he wouldn't wake up. The other kids didn't wanna go to church either, but they did what they were told. Jake? Not so much.
He knows that the house rule for not going to church is loss of all electronic privileges for the rest of the day. Including TV. Anyway, we got ready, and left the house at 12:10pm. And as we pulled away from the house, Jake came running out of the house, half awake, with his jammies on, yelling, GIVE ME 5 MINUTES!!!
And I could have waited. I really could have. But I'd been trying to wake his sorry butt up for the past hour. To no avail. So I figured that he deserved to be left, right? And then next time I told him to wake up, he'd take me seriously! So he argued with me for a few minutes, then I told him I was sorry, and I drove away. Secure in the knowledge that ALL of the fun electronics were locked in my bedroom. Even the TV power cord. Oh yeah, I'm thorough...
Church was good. And since my #1 distraction was gone, I was able to pay attention. And actually get something out of the meeting. My new friend, Maria, and her family spoke. They were pretty good talks too :) The points that stuck out in my mind the most were that Wishing, and Hoping, and having faith are 3 completely different things. And how true it is.
2nd hour, being the punk that I am, I decided that I wasn't going to go to Sunday School until I could take Captain America with me. hehe. So I sat in the hall with my friends and chatted. And then headed off to Relief Society.
Rebecca taught, and did a great job :) Then we loaded up in the truck, and headed back home. And Jake was still asleep. We got some dinner, and some of the kids and I watched a movie (well, part of one) in my room.
We did some chores, and hung out for the evening. With late church, we really don't have a lot of time between church and bedtime, you know. hehe. At 7pm, it was bedtime/quiet reading time. For some reason, I was SO tired! Maybe that icky sickness that was trying to sneak in? Anyway, I made sure the kids were all in their rooms and ready for bed, I took a dose of Niquil, and headed to bed. 7pm, and I woke up at 7am.
Feeling rested again :) I got up, and started blogging. And watched Captain America. As the kids woke up, the came and joined me. I'm finished blogging now, and 4 of the 5 kids are in here with me :) Hope everyone has a good day! Today and tomorrow are the last 2 days of break, then the kids go back to school! Woohoo :) hehe ;)

Here's the missing layout from yesterday! hehe :) I found it! Well, Sharon put it in the folder for me, so really, I just did what I always do, and it magically appeared. But I'll take the credit. ROFL! I'm liking this one, Sharon! She used my number freebie series, and my month wordart, available for purchase HERE.
