Well, 2010 is almost over! Just a few more days, my friends. Are you ready for 2011? I'm really not sure how I'm gonna make it through the WHOLE year on my own. I'll need you guys to help keep me sane, you know! If you see me on Facebook next month, say hi. I may be dying for some grown up interactions. LOL!

Anyway, Captain America and I woke up around 9am. And yeah, my phone was STILL freaking out. Wouldn't receive texts. Wouldn't tell me if I had emails. Wouldn't tell me about facebook. So basically, all the features that I use regularly stopped working. SO not cool. I was gonna need them to fix it again...

Captain America and I decided to go jogging in the morning. And I put on my cute little jogging skirt/shorts, and my shoes, and a long sleeved shirt, and thought I looked SO cute. Until I stepped outside. See, it's been in the upper 60's ALL week. Well, not today! Something chilly was blowing into town. So I put some yoga pants on, and a pair of gloves, and was good to go. Well, with all the other stuff that I had on before, silly!

We took Boxer with us, and jogged a shorter distance than normal, but still, we jogged. About 2 miles. Maybe a little less. Still, I wasn't really feeling it, so I was proud that I did anything at all. hehe. I was feeling the extra 5-6 lbs I'd picked up since my b-day, and I wasn't liking it. Today was gonna be the first day of no cheats. Sigh. It was kinda getting me down.

I did feel good about exercising, though. We got back home, kids were all doing great, and I took a shower. I made lunch for everyone, and at around 11:45am, Captain America and I headed out for our couples counseling session.

(this is only the 2nd hat I've found that fits my HUGE melon - ROFL!)

It was a good session. We learned about the "proper" way to address "complaints or criticisms". As long as we remember the rules and the procedures, we should be fine :) I think we need a little cheat sheet to keep with us at all times - ROFL!

After our session, we headed to Verizon. Because my phone was acting up. Sigh. I put our names on the waiting list, and sent Captain America off to Howdys to get us some drinks. See, I was thinking. I facebooked for a while, and after about 20 minutes, they called my name. Captain America was there about 5 minutes after that.

The chickie helping us said that yeah, it was my phone freaking out, and that flashing it again wouldn't help. She had one in stock, so she was gonna switch it out. Yes! New phone :)

And you know how it goes at Cell Phone stores... FOREVER to get stuff done. Captain America and I had fun playing with the IPads and such. He was pretending to make a call on this one. Apparently they're JUST like the droid, but they don't do phone calls. HA! He said he'd wait for them to be able to make phone calls too. Yeah, he'd be SUPER cool then.... hehe.

We figured out how to get picture texting on our additional phone lines, and the internet blocked on them, and a few other details, then off we went. Our sodas depleted... hehe

And since this particular Verizon store is RIGHT next to the mall, we swung by to grab me a screen protector. I knew that the ones at Bassett were only $5. They couldn't be that much more at Sunland Park, right? Wrong! $12.99. Yeah, I think not!

So we just walked around for a bit, then headed home. Here's us at a ToysRUs mini store.

I tried to get Captain America to sit on this chair, but he wouldn't. hehe. This was at some sports store. He likes the Rams and the Chiefs and the Cardinals in Football.

He kept asking me to dare him to get on the horse. ROFL!
Since the last collar we bought for Boxer was too big, we decided to swing by Pets Barn on the way home. It was RIGHT next to the mall. Handy, huh? We got a smaller collar for the dog, and an engraved name tag. It says his name on the front, and my phone number and email address on the back. I figured that would be better, since we move SO much...

And they had this local honey there, too. So we bought a jar. $10, I think it was. But I've heard that local honey is WONDERFUL for allergies. Because it's made using local pollens. The kids and Captain America sure thought it tasted good!

We headed back home, fed the kids snack, and relaxed for the rest of the day. Captain America and the kids played a few battlefield games, and I worked on some designing for a while. And we watched a few movies. And around 8pm, we put the kids to bed.

And at 9ish, Captain America and I decided to play cards. We LOVE playing Rummy, but haven't played in a while. I remember now why. Because I always lose - ROFL!!!

So I lost HARD when we were playing to 500 points. HARD. :( hehe. So I decided that we needed a "championship" round. At least it would be a chance for me to redeem myself. Yeah, not so much. He set me. 60 Captain America, -60 me. Ouch!

But it was fun. And we had fun joking around and laughing. That's always a good time! And here it is, 11:19pm. I'm finishing up my blog, and he's reading his book. I'm gonna go join him, and read for a bit too :) Just a few more days of vacation, and I"m gonna take advantage of all the time I have!
