Tuesday was … well, Tuesday. It doesn’t feel like today is Wednesday, so Tuesday obviously didn’t feel like Tuesday. I hate when days feel like that.
As usual, I struggled to wake up. I have to take a sleep aid at night to FALL asleep. Once I’m asleep, I’m usually a hard sleeper, but damn, that recovery after is killer. Add to it that we have to run the A/C just to be comfortable at night, and we’re just ASKING to be miserable. At least me.
Madi and I both realized we hadn’t given her her practice spelling test. So, we did that real quick. Fourth Grade words are a lot easier than they were when I was in 4th grade. I swear I had these words in 2nd grade.
She, of course, did great, with absolutely no issues.
They gave me attitude at the bus stop. That’s okay, they gave their dad some this morning too. It’s a morning thing.
8:30 in the morning, and this is what it looked like. Welcome to fall in Kansas.
Got my NaNoWriMo chat on with the ladies. Well, we sort of had a chat, 😆 Mostly we were quiet because none of us really had anything to say. Give it a week, then we’ll all be panicking going “HELP! I need sprints!”
In the background, I had “Say Yes to the Dress” on. Am I the only weirdo who actually CRIES during the episodes? Oh well.
I remembered that I’d taken a shower, and had no proof of said shower, so here’s my proof. I’m STILL so loving on these glasses, and I’ve had them for 18 months! I’m definitely sticking with this style for now on!
My arch-nemesis and I met on the field of battle. I’m not sure there was a victor, minus the family, for finally having some clean clothes. How my kids can wear ALL of their clothes in a week baffles the hell out of me.
The laundry pile. Not shown? The rest of the clothes 😆
At least I get to have my fun with my camera. Which reminds me I didn’t take a picture of what I purchased yesterday!! Well, the email order confirmation. For $50, I got an Extreme SD 16-gig and an Extreme SD 32-gig! Sweet, right! I did the math, and I can take over 3600 pictures … when I take both RAW and JPG! SWEET!
Which means I’ll be able to do this digital scrapbooking for years to come. I’ll never run out of pictures. snort The template and kit both release FRIDAY! Exclusively at Gingerscraps. Yes, I have to pimp out my place of employment. More than that. That place is just absolutely amazing and wonderful, and just awesome. The template is by Meg, of Ocean Wide Designs. The kit is called Día de los Muertos, also known as “Day of the Dead” It’s a freaking awesome kit! If you like skulls, you’ll love this kit!
I mentioned yesterday that I don’t eat lunch. Yesterday? I ate lunch. Southwestern chicken strips, mozzarella cheese, taco sauce (Taco Bell brand, medium level), and some Ranch dressing. Wrapped in a whole-wheat tortilla. I got the idea from a Lunchable and South Beach Diet meal I used to get. It’s SO good and honestly, it’s healthy too. If I wanted, I could toss in some lettuce and tomatoes, and make it even better!
I got a new app for my phone. I seriously love my HTC Inspire! The app is called DerManDar (DMD) Panorama. I need to practice a bit with it, but this will so come in handy when I’m at my FIL’s in McLouth.
We had Parent-teacher conferences. 84F at 6pm. That’s just absolutely nuts for October! I really dislike Indian Summer. I love the RESULTS, aka Blackberries, but damn, I could do without the heat wave!
Madison was totally expected. Nothing surprising there. We’re gearing up for Current Events for November. Something short and sweet. Maybe something about elections or something. We’ll let her choose.
Ethan was, for the most part, not a huge surprise. I mean, we’re surprised that he does so well because he always acts like, at home, that everything is such a struggle. He’s showing some issues with some reading things, but both Josh and I, and his teacher, think a lot of it might be an attention issue, or looking for attention. We’ll be keeping an eye on it, though. Just in case.
We came back and the kids found the Toys ‘R Us Christmas Wish Book. Oh boy. Josh even made a hilarious Facebook update about it.
I’m glad we have good friends who’ll tell us we’re screwed, 😆
My husband! He was quite annoyed that I was taking pictures of him. Honestly, you’d think he’d be used to it by now. I mean, shoot, he’s the one who bought the cameras I use, 😆
and this became my dinner. Nothing else honestly sounded good. Chocolate covered pretzels are always so yummy delicious. Yum!
I’ll be back tomorrow with more things! I’m REALLY loving this!
