Winking Freebie

New stuff in the store! Oh yeah, get excited!!! LOTS of good stuff for you!!! Click HERE to go to my store!

Also, I have a new bundle!!! A school one, for all of your school photos from the year! Oh yeah :)
AND a sale??? Oh yeah, NOW you are talking!!! So, with the 50% off, it takes the WordArt Packs down to about $1.25 a pack. Now, you can't beat that, right? Right? Just PLEASE don't use the coupon on the bundles. I wanna make a little bit of money, you know. The bundles are already drastically slashed. Besides, I asked nicely. And if you do, I will see your name come through on the order, and think bad thoughts about you. And you wouldn't want that, right?? Am I right???

So, woke up with a migraine today. Boo. So I got the kids to school, somehow, took some meds, ate 1/2 a BPJ minus the J, and went back to bed. And woke up at 10am feeling slightly better. More like drugged. ha! At least the head wasn't pounding. Such it is when you run out of your preventative medicine, right?

Anyway, I had to cancel hiking, and I postponed the Mary Kay facial that I had planned. I gathered up my laptop and headed to Kim's house in my jammies. She was packing boxes, since the movers come tomorrow. Boo. Another friend leaving... Such it is. She's going to Hood, where my sister Madi is, at least!

Anyway, she packed boxes, and I designed. I got 3 WordArt packs designed, and then she got a call from the school about her kinder, and had to go up there. So I headed home. I worked some more at home on designing and Miche and stuff. CPT was at the range today, so he didn't come home for lunch. I watched episodes of "How I Met Your Mother" and worked on my projects.

After I was done designing, the FedEx delivered my Miche order!!! And the new releases are DIVINE!!! I think the Green Demi, Judith, may be my favorite so far. I love bold colors :) The electric coral color is BEAUTIFUL too! And Jaz and Jasmine are SO stinking cute!

And the new Hope shells are great! I like their crossword like designs. I instantly duplicated it on Photoshop so I could make a t-shirt for my sales meeting next week in Las Cruces. Oh yeah, I'm TOTALLY winning the "Dress like your shell" contest... hehe :) It took SO long to do, but I think it looked good! I ordered a t-shirt with green ribbing to put the design on, and it's due in tomorrow. As soon as it come and I get it made up, I'll take a picture of me wearing it and show y'all!

Soon, it was almost time to go and get the little kids from the bus. I hopped in the shower, and threw on something green. Because I just HAD to use Judith! hehe. I chatted with Kari and Julia at the bus stop for a few minutes, then headed home. CPT was home from the range by then, and was SUPER tired. He'd had to leave the house at 4am. So he took a nap. The kids worked on chores (or didn't, but didn't get privileges until they were done with them - and rooms) and I loaded the store. And worked on blogging.

Tom helped make sloppy joes for dinner, and then at 5:30, Joe and CPT left for hockey practice. Joe had a baseball game tonight, but ice time is more precious, says CPT. Joe wasn't happy, but I really think he ended up having fun with his dad :) I think he forgot all about the game. It's the last time that Hockey practice and baseball games conflict, too. Thank goodness! hehe :)

Jake worked on cleaning his room, and doing his chores, and he finally got done. Eme had already gotten done, and went to play in the neighborhood. Jake wanted to go and play at Justin's house, but we couldn't get ahold of him. He wanted to watch TV, but because Tom and Jim were not finished with their chores/rooms, I didn't want the TV on. So I let Jake watch Netflix on my iPad.

Then Tom was being a dork and made Jake mad about something. I don't even remember what it was, but Jake was minding his business, watching TV, and Tom negatively interacted with him. And it made Jake mad, and he threatened to beat up Tom, and called him bad words. So, of course, I had to take away the iPad... Sigh. Then Jake was upset, because he had worked ALL afternoon (45 minutes) to earn the privilege. His life was so hard... hehe.

I told him that he'd lost the privilege of using the iPad, but that he should go and spend some time with the dog. Because it calms him down. And that's what his therapist says to do when he is upset. At first, he didn't want to. But then he realized that it was a good idea, and he went to sit with Boxer (as if it were his own idea). And it worked! He calmed down quite a bit. And, I had already sent Tom to his room for being disruptive to Jake, so that stimuli was gone.

After about 10 minutes of calming down, he asked if he could have another chance with the iPad. I said that if he continued to remain calm for 15 more minutes, that he could have another chance. And he did. Even with Jim being "annoying". The increase in meds and the fear of returning to the hospital helped, I think.

Anyway, CPT, after hockey practice, wanted to take his truck to the shop for the weekend. In New Mexico. So he called after practice, and Jake and I left the house in the Saturn to meet him there.

He and the dude talked FOREVER, but it was ok. I'd let Jake bring the iPad, so he and Joe were playing angry birds. And I chatted Miche with Aunt Sue for a bit. She has a party on the 9th that she's getting ready for, and I have one on the 12th, and just booked one for the following week too! SO much fun!

And soon, we were all crammed into the little Saturn Ion and headed back to post. But first, as stop off at the Gas Station Wendys for a frosty. Oh yeah, that was my treat - LOL. And they had Diet Mt Dew, so of course, a 44 oz-er of that!

CPT and I chatted all the way home. He told me about something or another the first part (sorry, honey, I can't remember now what it was....), then it was my turn! I talked about Miche. ROFL! There is a super high up trainer that is coming to ABQ in June, and I wanna go to the meeting! ABQ weekend! Oh yeah. I think it's the same weekend that CPT and the 2 older boys will be at scout camp. So, I just have to find something to do with the little 3. I've got about 2 months to figure it out :)

Oh Amanda... Wanna meet up in ABQ???? hehe :)

Anyway, we got home, got kids to bed, and there ya go, that's my evening. It's now 11pm, and I'm just now getting back to finishing this up. I'm gonna watch an episode of "How I Met Your Mother" on my iPad, then go to sleep. And hope that the migraine that I woke up with today is gone :)
