My Happy Place

New releases in the store! Yippee!!! Click HERE to go to the store to get a chance to pick up the new stuff! I know you're just SO excited! hehe :) All layouts by Sharon, who is on Vacation at Disney for 2 weeks!!!! Lucky duck!!!!

Hey there you guys! Sorry about the skipping yesterday! hehe. My inlaws got in at 10:30pm, and we were up late chatting. And before that, I was cleaning ALL day long! And we had piano for Eme at 4pm, and then the Pinewood Derby at 6:30pm. Man, it was a mad dash to get ready.

Anyway, we were all ready for bed around midnight, and hit the pillow and were asleep. CPT was awake and gone before I got up (to PT), and my alarm went off at 6:45am. The kids were SO excited to go in and see Grammie and Grandpa Harty. At 7am, right before Tom left for for school, I let them go in and see them. Joe needed his backpack and Jim needed his shoes (they were staying in their room). They were SO excited!!!

We got the kids ready, and spent the morning at home. Carol and I played in my Miche purses, and I ordered her a Classic bundle, cause I like her - hehe. Plus, she can take it back home, and show it off to everyone! It was a nice, low keyed, relaxing morning. We eventually showered and got ready for the day, filled up the Suburban, and headed over to the East Side to meet the girls at Olive Garden.

Kari and Laura (Kari's friend from Leo's party on Saturday) and Maggie and Hannah and Kim and Julia and me and Paul and Carol were there. We had a ton of fun eating soup and salad and breadsticks. I was SUPER hungry! hehe. Olive Garden was DEFINITELY the place to go, too! And somehow, I managed to get out of there without taking any pictures! I was off of my groove, I think! What's up with that???

Then it was off to Savers. Carol got a few things, and I got a new brown Nike zipper hoodie (emergency sweatshirt - it was COLD today!) and some teal sparklie shoes and some Steve Madden slippers. Good Savers day! I used my 30% off coupon, too!

Then, we headed back to the bus, and made it just in time. We collected the kids, and went back home to get ready for Ice skating. CPT got home at the same time as we did, and he took an advanced party to the skating rink. Eme and Joe and Leo and Paul and CPT headed out to go skating, and I followed behind with Tom and Jim and and Jake and Carol. We were so slow that Jake was off of the bus! hehe. It was his first time getting to go skating this year :) He was mildly excited for it.

We did get there pretty late, though. It was about 30 minutes into it, and the dude who was passing out the skates was already gone. Tom managed to track him down, but Jake doesn't have very good people skills, and got super mad and grouchy about it. He stormed off, but eventually cooled off. He needed to go and talk to the guy about getting the skates, and he didn't want to. He eventually did, and got to skate for about 10 minutes. He was happy when we left, though. So it must have all worked out.

Carol and Paul and I got to sit and visit. Jim decided to just not skate. Whatever. If he wasn't to sit and chat with Grandpa Hary, more power to him. Works for me :) We really did have a good time.

After skating, we all stopped at McDonalds on the way home and had Sundaes. Chocolate ones and strawberry ones and caramel ones and plain ones. They were SUPER yummy! We eventually got back home, dropped Leo off, and I sat down to do my weekly work, and CPT cooked some soup for everyone. The kids did their homework (Grammie and Grandpa Harty helped), then we watched a Civil War DVD with CPT. After my store was loaded, I snuggled next to CPT on the couch and took a nap.

I woke up at 8:30 when the show was over and helped get the kids to bed. And by that I mean that I yelled "Harty kids, time for bed", and they all went to their various sleeping locations. hehe. Yeah, it's nice to have older kids - ha!

CPT and Paul spent the evening discussing stuff from the video, and Carol and I painted nails. I did her fingernails a pretty light shade of dark pink, and I did my toes silver. We watched part of the Temple Grandin movie, and then it was time for CPT to go to bed, so we all called it a night. It's now 10:56pm. I need to "secure the premises", and then it'll be time for bed for me too. Night, y'all! See you in the morning!!!
