I Do All My Own Stunts

Hey girls! It's Wednesday again. Half way through the week again :) So, I got up yesterday at 5:15am to take my oldest, Jacob, to his scout activity. Who gets ups that early??? ROFL! Well, my hubby gets up that early, as does the rest of the Army….. But I’m not part of the Army - ha! Army wives don’t have to get up so early, right? That’s the story I’m going with. Hehehe.

Anyway, Jacob and I were out the door by 5:30am, and at the church parking lot by 5:50am. We were supposed to be there by 6:00am. And guess what? No one was there. Well, that’s not quite true. There was one other mom there dropping off her kid. We waited till 6:08am, and were starting to get worried that maybe they left us. A few minutes later, one of the leaders showed up, and said that they decided to meet somewhere else. Thanks for letting us know. Hehehe.

So, we headed off to the new location, and I dropped Jacob off. I managed to get back home before the kids woke up even. Why is it, that they sleep in when I have to get up early, and wake up early when I get to sleep in. Murphy’s law, I guess. Hopefully I get to sleep in today.

Eme, Joe, Jim and I worked on getting their bedrooms all switched around. We got most of it done. And it looked pretty good when we were done, even. Jimmy was a little upset that his bunk bed was still upstairs, but I know my limits. That’s gonna have to be a project for when Captain America's available to help. A girls gotta know her limitations. Hehehe.

I spent some time on the computer, and a little bit of time in the kitchen cleaning. I decided to take the kids to the movies, even if it was just the kids and I. We saw “Escape to Witch Mountain”. It was really good. A nice action/sci-fi movie for kids. Gotta love that J And the Rock is pretty nice too - hehehe. Only one kid had to leave to go to the bathroom, and Jimmy was only slightly disruptive. At one point, one of the aliens made some things in a car float, and Jimmy stood up, and pointed, and said “Look, Money!!!”. The guys behind us got a kick out of it.

After the movie, we went to another store in the little strip mall, looking for some shorts for Eme. Well, the kids were HORRIBLE. Let me clarify. Tom and Eme were horrible. Jim and Joe were just fine. The kept getting in each others space, and being super rude to each other. After several chances, I took away computer privileges from each of them. Needless to say, I’ll have to go back and hind some shorts for Emeline a different day.

We got home at 5pm, and made dinner real fast, then headed off to Andreas house for a Pampered Chef party. I texted Captain America and told him to come and pick up the kids when he got off work, which he did. It was FUN party. I didn’t eat any of the food, which looked SUPER tasty, but just had a lot of fun hanging out with my girls.

The party started to dwindle at about 9pm, and I hurried home to tell Captain America that I was coming back to hang out more - hehehe. Adela, Andrea and I put in a movie at 10:30pm. We watched “Daylight”. It was pretty good. Sylvester Stalone and Viggo Mortensen. When they were young - ha! Good action flick. I’ve got this thing for natural disaster movies. Heck, any ole disaster movie will do. And this one didn’t disappoint - hehehe.

So, it’s 2:10am, and I’m still at Andrea’s house. I’m writing this on Word, and them I’m gonna copy and paste it to blogger when I get home. Aren’t I tricky. I’m so glad that I have friends to hang out with. Thanks, girls, for having me!!!

This WordArt saying came from Andreas son’s tee shirt last night - hehehe. I thought it was hilarious, and it just screamed out to be WordArt-ed. So, here it is J
