Only The Essentials

Hey there, guys! Today was a MUCH better day. SO much better. No more tears. hehe. Not that tears are such a bad thing. But they take a lot of energy out of a person - hehe :)

Anyway, I woke up around 9am, had breakfast, and chatted with my mom for a bit. And before I knew it, it was time to get ready to go to lunch with the girls! We were going to Chili's at 11am.

Here's a few pics of me before I left the house.
Our snow is mostly gone, but it's still SO cold!

I let the kid play electronics when I left the house, so they were SO happy for me to go - hehe. I was gonna go get my license plate tags before lunch, but ran out of time. AND Captain America called on Skype as I was driving across post, so I pulled over and chatted with him until around 11am. He's doing well, and it was nice to talk with him :)

And I was running late, but I made it there ok. Terra was there too, and we headed into the restaurant. Well, we tried. Chili's was closed. Whaaaat? It was after 11am. It SHOULD have been open...

I looked up the phone number on my Droid, and called them. And they said that they had lost power, but should be open any moment. So we went to the front door, and the manager came out, and said that the power JUST came back on, but that things wouldn't be ready for at least 30 minutes. OK, no lunch at Chilis.

So we headed to Applebees. And texted the other girls. Who just turned out to be Veronica. Everyone else had something else come up. Sick kids, stitches, work.... So it was Terra and Veronica and I had lunch together.

Hmmm, which one should I have???

Terra got an appetizer of queso and chips. And I just HAD to take a picture of this chip for Captain America. Because he would have LOVED it! hehe :)
I decided on the Philly Burger. I didn't eat the top bun, and got a salad instead of the fries, and it was SOOOO good. Yummy!

We had fun visiting and chatting and eating. And then it was time to go. Veronica invited Tom and Jake and Eme over to play with her kids later in the day. Sounded good to me!

So I headed back on post, and went to the on-post DMV. Because my tags were expired. And, of course, they were closed. They SHOULD have been open, but they were closed. Sigh. At least I know that the Gate Guard don't check for such things. I just need to make sure that I don't get an MP at the gate, cause they look more closely. They're gonna be open on Monday. So I'll go then.

And I got home, and changed into comfy clothes. Cause everything is WAY too tight. Sigh. All the desserts aren't helping. One of these days, I'm gonna get "back on the wagon".

I designed for a while today, and organized my quote ideas, and looked for some CU friendly free fonts. And found quite a few, actually. I think I installed about 99 on my laptop. Yes! Gotta like that.

And we cleaned up a little bit, and then the big kids went over to Veronica's house around 3:30pm. And ended up staying to spend the night. Even better! I get a night off!!! Well, I get 2 kids, but two is SO easy :) hehe.

And look at poor Jimmy's eye. I'm not sure what's wrong with it. It's not red inside. Just on the skin part.... Hopefully it looks better tomorrow. I gave him some benadryl.
You can't really tell in this picture, can you...

Anyway, we had something or another for dinner, and the kids watched some movies. And I sat on the couch with them and designed. And I straightened up a little bit more, and put the kids to bed around 7:30 or 8pm. And I watched some TV episodes, and designed and now I'm blogging.

And yeah, it was a good day. And I did feel a lot better. I still need to control my eating, but at least my emotions were in check. And that's important. I'm really greatful for friends today. Who went to lunch with me. Who brought me a slice of peanut butter cake. Who texted to check on me. Who called to chat with me. Who let my kids spend the night at their house. Who offer up prayers in my families behalf. Thanks, everyone :)
