It's been a pretty decent day around here today. I woke around 9:00 this morning which was earlier than I would have liked BUT Anika had an Orthodontist appointment & of course, I had to take her. Apparently that is part of the job description of a Mommy. I took a quick shower this morning but could not make myself wash my hair. It was just too chilly this morning for wet hair even in the house. I got the girls up this morning & they got ready while I was getting ready. Torie spent the night again last night (3 nights in a row) and she went to Anika's appointment with us this morning. Luckily, I didn't have to drag the little two out. Hubby worked 2nd shift last night so he got up with them this morning & kept them home. I was glad, it was too cold for them.
Anika's Orthodontist appointment was at 10:30. It takes us about a 1/2 hour to get there and then they spend about a 1/2 hour with her so all in all it's a very short trip. Today they tightened the chains on her teeth back up. She has had quite a bit of pain with the chains. While she was getting her teeth worked on, I browsed around the Salvation Army that is right next door. I found a few goodies for myself. I got a whole set of glasses for the house. We have NO glasses around here, I really do not know where they disappear to. I just know that last night when Hubby asked for a LARGE glass of ice water, I served it to him in a Mason Jar. Yes, we are that glass poor. I also got Axle a pair of Jeans & a cute Polo Shirt. The boy needs some nicer clothes for Church and stuff. He has a ton of play clothes but very few nice outfits. I found Annalee a penguin that makes noise when you touch it. There is one just like it at Mom's but for $3.00 I figured it was worth buying another for here. It's the only thing your not going to see a pic of because I left it in the trunk and still haven't went out to get it. I got me a new top that is really cute, I'll be able to wear it with leggings too which is a plus. I also got a brown cardigan. I needed it, I didn't have a chocolate brown one. Everything cost $12.00 so that was a pretty good deal if you ask me.
We got home from the Orthodontist around Noon. I had to make a stop by Advanced before coming home. My engine light came on and wouldn't go off so I had them put a computer on it to see what the problem was. Apparently Cylinder 6 isn't firing whatever that means. I told Hubby and he said he would check it. Thank goodness he's mechanically inclined or I'd be in big trouble! When I got home Hubby had the Curly Fries already in the oven & the Hamburger meat already cooked for Sloppy Joe's. I finished throwing them together and we ate. I was VERY thankful he had it pretty much done for me. He's a good guy like that from time to time.
The girls ended up coming home with me. I let them sucker me out of not having to go to school. I swear I'm a terrible Mother when it comes to that. They went to the Garage and that is where they pretty much stayed till Torie's Mom came and got her this evening. I have no idea why the kids like to hang out in the Garage but they do. The Little One's & I hung out in the house. Ax pretty much occupied himself and Annalee slept so I took advantage and browsed possible vacation plans. Yes, I'm already looking forward to vacation in July! I should have been doing a million other things but I just didn't feel like it.
This evening I straightened up the house a bit. I did manage to get another load of laundry done but that was about it. We had sandwiches from the pizza place & have pretty much sat around and done nothing. Can I just tell you that it sure has been nice. Sometimes I enjoy just doing nothing!
Before I go, I wanted to share a couple pics with you. I told you yesterday that I had pics of Annalee playing on her Spring Horse but Hubby had my camera so I couldn't show them to you. Well believe it or not, I remembered today so here they are.
Oh and just so you know, I do have proof that Hubby really had my camera yesterday. I wasn't just telling you that. Apparently, he got bored while underground and decided to take a few photos. For anyone who hasn't ever seen what an underground coal mine looks like, here you go.
Well friends, I really have to lay down. I just can't take it one more second. I'm going to rent a movie but I'm not sure I'll make it through it all. I'm going to try though.
Tomorrow I'll probably be late posting. Anika has a Tournament Game to cheer at tomorrow night so that is where we will be. If we win, we cheer Thursday but if we don't, I guess that is it for the season. I won't tell you that I'm hoping we don't win. Shhh, I didn't say that!
Have a good night Friends!
