Yes... I suck... I'm sorry! I completely missed all of last week. I'm a terrible P365r!! I will take my lashings at noon with a dignity!! I'm not exactly sure why I missed all of last week... other than I'm a terrible P365r. I could make up an elaborate lie... but that just wouldn't be right!! ANYWAYS!! On with this weeks pictures!! :-D
Sunday 13 February - First things first!! Monkey got the sides of his hair shaved down almost to the skin!! This made his mohawk look REALLY big!! I never would have thought that taking off a 1/2 inch (maybe!) would make the rest of his hair seem that much longer. Of course, our Associate Pastor and Pastor LOVED it! We made a joke that if he keeps going, we're going to have to change the bulletin! Our Associate Pastors name is Sterling, and he has a very very VERY tall (Like a foot tall!!) mohawk, but, because our church is on the larger size, some people don't KNOW that his name is Sterling, so, we call him "Mohawk Man." Sam brought one of the guys that he works with to church with us, and then we all went out to lunch at Andys' after.
Monday 14 February - I make pancakes for breakfast for all my little lovebirds! We had exchanged Valentines Day gifts a couple days before that, but, since I didn't take pictures last week, I guess I could just tell you now!! I got Sam a really nice leather bound journal that has John 3:16 around the edge. Sam got me a really nice black leather NLT Bible and a nice leather bookmark. We also got The Love Dare for Couples book as a "group gift." Monkey got a small fish tank for Blueberry, his Betta. He had been trying to save his allowance for some time to get one because his old one broke and he had been in a breeders net in our large tank for a while. Bug got some "dangly earrings" because she's now obsessed with making sure that her earrings match her outfit. She got monkeys, ice cream cones, and some very nice silver circles with color inserts. They both got chapter tabs for their Bibles as well. They thought that was super awesome.
Tuesday 15 February - IT'S GIRL SCOUT COOKIE TIME!! That's right. Bug has 4 bags of boxes of Girl Scout cookies. I had to drive her to school because I wasn't about to let her take those on the school bus!! I also took my car in to be looked at. My TPMS light was coming on, and I knew that couldn't be right considering my tires are filled with Nitrogen!! I arrived at 1:30, and apparently me telling them that I HAD to be home by 3 was optional. Even tho my appointment was for 1:45, my car didn't get pulled back until almost an hour later. At which point I was just happy it was even back there! I found out that it had a recall on it (nothing for the TPMS light tho) and that there was something wrong with my power steering pump. They ordered the parts and I should have everything fixed late next week. Sam also told me around 3 that he was going to take a nap and come home from work.
Wednesday 16 February - I wake up to an empty bed. This isn't something totally unusual tho. I'm a military wife. Even tho my husband doesn't deploy or go in the field, he still has duty and other things that keep him at work all night. It's just unusual for him to say he's going to take a nap and then never show up. I don't worry tho. I know he's been having issues sleeping and figure he's just slept thru the night. I get the kids off to school and clean the entire house (other than the laundry)! By 3 that afternoon I was getting pretty antsy because he hasn't called or anything. The kids and I go to the store to get something for dinner, and I find Cheerwine Sherbert!! If you don't know what Cheerwine is, it tastes like cherries and it's produced right here in North Carolina. It's one of those things you either love it, or you hate it. Sam finally comes home as I'm looking up the number to the duty hut. Needless to say, I was a little bit upset.
Thursday 17 February - Buggy has school pictures today. She picks out a white shirt with a short black crop top attached to it, a blue and black plaid skirt, black capri leggins, and her hair in a side pony tail. I swear she was born about 40 years or so too early! Of course, I forgot to take pictures before she went to school, her hair looked pretty good when I first did it! And of course, here's an outtake picture. I seen this and I couldn't help but laugh really hard!
Friday 18 February - And of course, she is coughing her lil lungs out, and she's not even awake yet. About the same time that I'm getting Monkey into the shower, Bug starts coughing in her pseudo-sleep. She wakes up about 6:40 and comes out and croaks out a "Mommy... my throat hurts!" I give her some cough medicine, and figure she will fall asleep on the couch. I call her in for school and after I get off the phone she asks if she can watch Annie. I tell her that's fine, and her and I end up snuggling on the couch and watching girlie movies most of the day between my laundry and cleaning. Around 1, she asks if she can go to school, around 2:30, she starts coughing again. :-/
Saturday 19 February - Bug feels good again this morning and I make eggs, bacon, and hash browns for breakfast. I was going to make some Cinnamon rolls, but, I didn't have enough brown sugar, and I didn't feel like changing to go to the store for one product. Oh well I guess! After some morning cleaning, Monkey helps Bug deliver some more cookies. Bug and I do a little work out, and she kicks my butt in the flexibility department. She also kicked my butt in the can-do-cardio-and-not-sweat department! I take a shower, and we get more cookies ready to deliver. We go to our friend Keonas house and we all walk around her neighborhood delivering cookies together. Len comes and spends the night tonight, and they are all currently in the bathroom with the little tabs that change the plaque on your teeth red. I love when they show each other up in the toothbrushing department!
