Wow, girls! It's late. Or early. Or however you look at it :) I had a nice day yesterday, starting off VERY relaxing. Nothing much going on in the morning, lazy time. But my 10:30am, it got busy. I worked on my shopping list, and headed off to the grocery store with Jimmy and Joe. I had a VERY detailed list with the amounts, prices, and stuff that I needed to buy. I really was quite proud of my list.

I was able to get everything I needed from the commissary, except for kid yogurt. They were out of the tub that I usually buy for them. So, the kids and I headed off to Wal-Mart. But first, I stopped by the PX and picked up my migraine meds. Thank goodness! I went for 4 days without them ,and was so paranoid that I'd get one and not be prepared :)

I had a list of about 5 things to get from Wal-Mart, and I think I ended up with a bit more than that. I got the kids each a new towel (different color for each kid). I bought the kids each a laundry basket. See, I'm gonna try this new system that I got from one of my blog readers. Each kid gets a different day to do his/her laundry. Jake is Mon, Tom is Tue, Misc laundry is wednesday, Eme is Thurs, and Joe/Jim is Friday. I'll help them till they get the hang of it. But that should drastically reduce the amount of laundry that I have to do. They can gather it themselves, wash it, dry it, fold it, and put it away. That's my goal, anyway. I'll let you know how it goes.

So, back from Wal-Mart at about 12:30pm, and Captain America is home for lunch. Andrea and I had plans to go to the West Side mall at 1:10pm, so I hurry and get lunch, and lunch for the kids.

We head out, with me planning on not spending a dime. Well, we get to Old Navy, and they have these AWESOME swim tops for boys. Joe and Jim are so white, I'm always afraid that they'll burn. These are the perfect solution. I"ll take pics today at the pool for you all (translate = for you, Mom!).

Eme got 2 new paris of shorts, since she had NO pairs of shorts, only some cutoffs. Poor kid. I got a new shirt, but once I tried it on at home, I didn't like it. I'll have to return it. Anyway, we looked in some bath store, with lots of yummy smelling lotions and stuff. We went to Macy's, but I'm not really a department store girl. We also let the kids play in the kids place. I had brought Jimmy, and Andreas friend had brought her 2 kids.

When we headed home, Andreas friend had brought a TON of stuff for us to sell at the garage sale. She said to look through it, and keep whatever we wanted. She was donating the stuff to us, and we got to keep the proceeds anyway. Sweet!

I got a new purse (Coach). Who knew that people actually paid TONS of money for purses - LOL! I'll post a pic of it tomorrow. It's super cute. I also got some candle stick holders, a bunch of DVD's, some kid toys, and Eme got some shoes. It was pretty cool.

We got home at around 4:30pm, and I sat down to design. I got a few things done, then hustled to get dinner ready. I left for Scouts at 6:45pm, and Captain America stayed home with the little kids. I took Jake and Tom.

We had a quick pack meeting, and I had brought my laptop to design a bit more. I got one more WordArt pack designed, and it was time to go home. On the way home, Andrea texted me to say that she and Adela were hanging out at her house, and that I should come and join them.

So, I got the kids home, made sure that everyone was in bed, made sure that Captain America was taken care of, and at 9:00pm, I headed down the street to Andreas. Well, Adela, Andrea, Katy, and I had a TON of fun. We sat on the back patio and chatted for HOURS! Girl talk is SO nice :) Thanks, girls, for all the fun and the laughs! I'll never think of the word AMAZING the same way again :) hehehehe.

Well, here it is, 4:57am. Yep. I just got home. I can't believe it's SO late. Or realy. Given your perspective - hehehe I giving you guys a freebee of something that I'd previously designed, and held out to sell. I'm just too tired to do much else - hehehe.
