What.a.day. I’m really sad to say that I’m writing this after 3am.
I woke up around 9am when one of my brother’s called. He needed something from Home Depot and I happened to be going to Brookhaven today (a bigger town than our tiny town) and so I told him I’d be happy to grab him something while out there. Then I started school with the kids.
We got a lot done today. Not as much as I’d hoped, but once again I had to cut things short to take one of the kiddos… Asher… to the doctor. He had a vaccination appointment so we got ready and got out the door by 12:30.
Before I left, I made sure the other kids had lunch and then gave them a to-do list. We really needed to catch up on some household chores that have been neglected lately.
We got about a mile from my house and um… we had a little mishap. Asher from the backseat of the truck said, “Uuuummmm, Mommy?” and I turn to see this:
Yeah. This is what happens when you buckle your child into the carseat but NOT the carseat into the truck. We don’t ride in the truck much so I have no idea when/how the carseat got unbuckled. I quickly pulled over and got him all fixed up then we were on the road again.
Anywho… we got to the doctor and Asher played a bit in the lobby while we waited. 🙂
Then when we got into the actual exam room and I told him he was getting a shot today, he decided to hide so the nurse “won’t shoot me” (he said). Hahahaha!
Anyway, he survived the shot and all was good. But while I waited, I opened some mail and my sweet cousin Michelle who lives in Alabama had sent me some candy corn socks!! I love candy corn and I absolutely LOVE cute socks and she just made my day!!
Also while we waited, my friend Chrissy, who is a missionary, posted on Facebook that she missed me! She’s the one who I missed seeing on Sunday because I slept the afternoon/evening away.
Anyway, they live in Virginia but happen to be in Brookhaven this week and since I was in Brookhaven at that very moment, it worked out for us to see each other after we left the doctor’s office … YAY!! Unfortunately, the only pic I have is one Asher took on my phone with some WACKY filter. :-p
This is Chrissy and her husband, Jon. Aren’t they cute? After a great visit and some really good cheese sticks, Asher & I left to run by Walmart, then on to Home Depot, and then home.
We got home around 5:30pm and after unloading the groceries and trying to check email for a little while, it was time to go to church. Oh, and Richy made us hot dogs and tator tots for supper. We always keep it simple on Wednesday nights.
After church… that’s when I realized I was in for a long night. When I actually made my baking list and orders list for the rest of the week, I knew I had a lot to do tonight baking, frosting cupcakes, and decorating 3 dozen cake pops) … and sure enough, I finished at 2:50 am and I still have lots to do before I can deliver tomorrow.
One more thing… our pics from Saturday are ready… here’s one of my faves:
So, now… 3:30 am, everything is put away for the night, this blog post is written (I’m way too darn close to my 31 days goal to miss a night now) and I’m going to sleep.
Happy Thursday ya’ll!!
