No Rest for the Wicked

So I went to bed early-ish last night, and actually got some good sleep. So when my alarm went off at 6:45am, I hopped right up, and got in the shower. And was able to get ready and pretty and kids out the door, and me out the door on time! Go me!

I dropped Jim off at Daycare, then headed over to the ACS building for Military Spouse Appreciation Day. Terra met me there, bearing gifts! Awe, thanks hon! LOVE me some DDP!
We registered, and were given bags with TONS of goodies in it! WE had a great time looking through them and finding all the good stuff :) Like this. A ray of sunshine. hehe :) I got a kick out of that one!
And these magnetic clips, aka, hair clippies. ROFL! If I'm bad, just back me up against a fridge, and I'll be stuck - ROFL!
This little dude is cute! ha!
And then we broke off into classes. Terra and Laurie and I had all the same classes. And our new friend, Laura, had all the same classes, but the last one. She was pretty cool! Fit in just nicely with us :)

Our first class was Cooking Thin. And the lady who showed us stuff kept telling us the benefits of Vegan diets. Yeah, I don't think that's for me. I really don't... But the stuff we had sure tasted good! Potato pancakes, mango smoothie, and tortilla soup :)

Terra and I with our Mango Smoothie - SUPER good!
And check out this SUPER cool cake from ACS :)
Next class, Hollywood Makeover!
And there weren't enough stations for us. Hmpf! Terra and I sat on the couch, waiting for our turn, then got in to do our nails...

And I got one of those tickles in my throat, and my eyes were watering SUPER bad, and my nose was running, and I kept coughing. It was horrible. hehe. Poor me :)My nails did look pretty when I was done, though. We had the option of having a Mary Kay make over, but I'd already done my make up, and the room smelled of fingernail polish, and it was too much for me to take. So I opted out of it.

And they had one guy there doing massages. 10 minutes. OR, you could get a coupon for an hour massage at the college. Um, yeah, no brainer. I took the coupon. Laurie didn't hear that part, so opted for the 10 minute massage.

There prices are pretty reasonable, don't you think??? hehe :)
And after this class, we all met out in the main room again, and had lunch. They had these cute boxes with all of our lunch inside of them. Sandwiches, chips, cookies, and cake. Thanks, ACS ladies!
And this dude sang to us.....
And I sang too, from the back, into my pen...

The next class was Painting like Picasso. The teacher showed us how to take a strip of Linoleum, flip it over, paint it, then seal it with Modge Podge (or whatever it's called). It was really pretty cool. I decided to do a race track for my boys with it.
Laurie wanted a race track too,

Terra had to leave after the 3rd class to go and pick up her mom at the airport. She was coming for a visit :) FUN! So Laurie and I headed for Scrapbooking class. And we got the SAME kit as the time that Terra and I went scrapbooking. Hum... Maybe I'll give this one to Emeline and let her play. She'd LOVE that ;)

Here's me. LONG out of DDP. This is just water....
Laurie and I, deciding that it was SO nap time!

Our teachers

After the 4th class, we met back in the main room, and did door prizes. I wanted to win something, but didn't. That's ok :) Laurie won a free golf cart rental. ROFL! I guess I could have won that, right? hehe. I was ok with not getting anything :)

Laurie and I headed out around that time, opting out of the Zumba class. My older kids were at home, and I needed to get Jim from Daycare.

So I got my voucher for Childcare, and headed over to the CDC to get Jim. He'd made me a Mother's Day card (SO cute!) and had had a wonderful day. Good!

And we stopped by the Commissary real fast for dinner and snacks for the T-Ball game. Then headed home.

We had time to do a quick round of chores, and cook burritos for dinner. Then Joe and Jim and I loaded up in the car, and Jake and Tom and Eme played electronics nicley at home, and we went to the games.

Joe's game was at 5:30 at Logan. I was able to stay till around 6pm, then Jim and I loaded up in the car and headed back to Post. I dropped Jim and his snacks off with his coach at 6:25pm, then headed back to Logan. And caught the last 5 minutes of Joe's game. Then loaded back up in the car, and headed back to main post to Jim's game. Seriously!

But, a good thing, we realized that Nicole's little boy is on the SAME team as Jims! Sweet! She lives just a few blocks away from me. Another mom to help me - hehe. Her hubby deployed with Captain America, so she's in the same boat as I am :)

EVentually, it was 7:30, and it was time to go home. Kids got snacks, and we loaded up, and drove back home. I had the kids do another round of chores (you'd think my house would be clean with the amount of time we spend cleaning.... sadly, no...), then we all went in my room and watched a movie. And it's now 8:40pm, and I'm sleepy. I think I did too much today. I don't think I rested NEARLY enough... I pushed it too hard.

Luckily, there's NOTHING on my plan for tomorrow. Nothing at all. I plan on sleeping and lounging around ALL day long. Well, that's my plan, anyway... We'll see how it goes :)
