So, Friday the 13th, huh? Isn't that supposed to be a bad day? Lets hope not. hehehe. Thursday was good for me. Started off at 7am, getting kids ready for school, and out the door at 7:30am.

Rowan (Laurie's youngest) came over at 7:45am to play for the morning. Laurie has classes on Tue/Thurs. She's studying to be a nutritionist. Cool, eh? Andrea usually watches Rowan (they switch babysitting), but Andrea's hubby was leaving Thursday am, so she asked me.

The boy played real nicely. They watched a movie, played a TON of time in the backyard, raced cars on the hot wheel derby track, and had a few snacks. The morning actually passed pretty fast.

Jake was SO distractable today with his school work. I think he needs a better workspace. Our house is not the most quiet of places. We need a library. hehehe.

I got to spend some time today reading my fan fictions that I like. You know, that one that I recommended is a lot more, um, risque than I'd remembered. Sorry, girls. It's definitely a M rating. Sigh. Why must they do that? The Bleed one.

The kids were about 15 minutes late getting home from school. I was starting to get a bit worried. Finally, I went out to see where they were. And the second I opened the door, there they were. Another mom, and her 2 boys were there with them. She said that her kids were late too, so she went to find them. I guess my kids and her kids were walking together, and just going REALLY slow.

I stayed outside and chatted with her for about 20 minutes. Apparently, she lived 2 houses from me. And I'd never even seen her. See how unobservant I am. She has a kid who's about a week younger than Jake (but a grade off), and one that's in the same grade as Tom. They walk home together almost every day. Go figure!

She's pretty cool. She also has 2 older kids. One is married, has a kid, and is stationed here. Same battery as her hubby. Pretty cool. She said that she didn't know anyone in the neighborhood, so I told her that she could hang with us some if she wanted. Leslie was her name. Nice gal!

I'd put chicken and veggies in the crock pot earlier in the day, so dinner was all ready by 5pm. I fed the kids, then we all got ready for scouts. Field Trip (go-see-it) to the Fire Department. Plus, Jake had Wrestling practice. Busy night.

I had Jake go 20 minutes early to practice, take a book, and wait outside. Then the other kids and I went to the fire house. It was really a good time. Plus, the guy giving the tour was SUCH a hottie. *drool* That always makes the trip more enjoyable!

The little boys had a ton of fun looking at the fire trucks, playing on the stairs, looking at the pool table, but their favorite part was the foozeball table. Funny, huh?

We got the boys all together at the end to take a pic. I'm gonna print them off at Walgreens, one for each kid, and one for the fire department, to say thanks for letting us come. I thought it turned out nicely.

We left the fire house, and stopped by wrestling to get Jake. We waited for about 15 minutes for him to come out. Then it was home, and to bed. Jimmy actually fell asleep in the truck, so he was easy to put to bed - hehehe.

Jake, since he hadn't done a lot of school during the day, had a TON of work to do in the evening. He got most of his classes done, though.

I watched a little bit of TV (Fringe on Fox), then read some, chatted on facebook messenger some, and designed some. Really, though, I'm low on motivation. I need to find some. Anyone have any extra I can borrow?

Ha! I know I can use this one on WAY too many photos. LOL! Click on the links below to go to my accounts to download the PNG file, and leave some love if you like my work. Thanks!

I love that there are still people in the world who aren't afraid to start conversations with strangers - especially when they are your neighbor! My DH gets onto me all the time for talking to people I don't know... conversations in grocery store lines can be quite enlightening sometimes!

I love the new stuff! I love reading your blog... it is so entertaining:). Anyway, I have a request... My son was just called to serve a mission in Madagascar! I looked through all of your stuff and couldn't find anything with 'Called to Serve' or something like that. If you have time, I would love anything like that! Thanks, Kathy

Hey, is there any way to find out which kits Tanja and Diana used for their layouts? They are fabulous! Also, a question on the WA - shouldn't it read "yes it can be wonderfully exhilarating when life is moving quickly, but DOES not move so quickly that speed becomes our only experience, for there is so much more to enjoy"?? Should it day DOES instead of DO? it sounds funny to me. Great art today though, I may have to go grab some of your Christmas packs!
