Carpets cleaned & Boardwalk after school

The carpet cleaners did an awesome job. The carpets look new again. NF Carpet Care @ 619-286-6530

When I picked up the kids we went to Target to get the birthday present for J's friend's party tomorrow afternoon.

Then we went to the Boardwalk.
We had ride tickets left from the birthday parties there on saturday.

Plus I'm planning on having D & K's birthday party there in a couple weeks and want to see what the palce is like on a Thursday afternoon....... it is completely empty!
We try the pizza buffet and buy some tokens. The kids had a lot of fun.

starbucks drink for today..... Mocha Frappuccino

after running around all day...... it's a stop at Starbucks drive thru for Mocha frappuccino.

J is going with a birthday party afterschool so this is also a special treat for K who is feeling left out. She's ordering a Mint-Chip chocolate and D's getting chocolate milk.

Our new favorite show.
We rarely watch the disney channel, but we've been watching these shows over and over .... thanks to the DVR.
D really enjoys them..... he likes the rocket and the adventures.
So far the whales & ocean one is his favorite, but he likes the eagle & chinese dragons episodes too.\

Jesus=The Bread of Life

Soul Scents weekly devotionals.Feel free to pass them on to your friends. Free subscriptionis available at:

"Jesus replied, I am the Bread of Life. He who comes to Mewill never be hungry, and he who believes in and cleaves toand trusts in and relies on Me will never thirst any more(at any time)." John 6:35 (Amp)

When Jesus says He is the bread of life, He is inviting usto feast on Him. He wants to be our family, our sense ofhome. He wants to be our life. We feast on Jesus by invitingHis constant presence into our life, by focusing on Himinstead of trying to fill our hunger with other people orthings.Feasting on Jesus means we believe in Him, cleave to Him,trust Him and rely on Him. He isn't just a snack. He's thenutrition that fills us. He is provision for all our needs.He is love to our hungry souls. And, unlike me, He neverruns out of the energy to provide the bread we need. Infact, He says He is so nourishing that we will never behungry again.

There have been plenty of times my heart has felthungry. But what I'm discovering is that the more I rely onJesus-the more He becomes the very thing that sustains me,the less my heart rumbles and growls. The more at peace Ifeel. He satisfies my hunger to be completely and deeplyloved, and no one can take that away from me.

"Father, in Your awesome, mystical way, fill my every hungerpang. Be my every meal. Help me to rest in Your presence andprovision instead of turning to people or things that don'tsatisfy."~Paula Moldenhauer

Sisterchicks Down Under - read the book!

Finished Sisterchicks Down Under.
I liked it better than the first one {on the loose}.

just take a number and get in line....................

I just can't even say enough is enough.
Is this a test???
Can there be more problems in life? Problems .... Just take a number and get in line.....>>>

So I'm spending all morning trying to solve my missing wallet problem, with drivers license and credit cards. Thank goodness they didn't get any money out of my atm or my visa, and I don't think they tried to use my other card ..... we worried they would try to buy GAS! since they had the cards and my zip code.
NEXT the school calls and K has a hurting ear and I have to go pick her up.
Since D was barfing on Sunday I figured she has an ear infection. Plus she had been swimming and that ususally gives her some kind of ailment, usually it is her eyes, afterward.
But I pick her up and she is happy and skipping. I'm not acting the sensitive mother...... how can she be sick and skipping to the car???
I tell her--- you are sick, if you are leaving school, you must go home to bed.
As I find the eardrops and consider if I need to take her to the Dr. for ear infection.... I ask her to change her clothes and take the earrings out so she will be comfortable.
{background..... a few days ago she put in my blue topaz earrings. Her ears were pierced in March and we waited the 6 months for her to wear dangly earrings. She had those in a few days and then switched to the blue topaz ones,,,, I think it was last wednesday.}
I want her to lie down for 20 minutes with the drops in her ears and no earrings.
She says she can't take one of them out. She is moaning in pain.
I come and check and find that the tiny BACK of the earring is INSIDE of her earlobe!!!
It is a very tiny back and.....It has worked its way inside the hole and is inside the earlobe, you can't even see it!

I try to take it out.... she is screaming..... I get a nervous stomach hearing her scream with the pain... so I stop and call the Dr. They can actually get us in today... a Monday. I do try my mom and our friend who is a nurse, but they are not answering.

So we are off to the Dr. It is a fight to get her into the car. She is wailing and I have to drag her to the car. Then I BRIBE her with STARBUCKs. There's a store off the lobby of the clinic. She stops screaming and we actually make it in there without any more screaming.

The Dr. is squeamish trying to get it out and finally just does it quick while I hold her down.
I ask her how she made it through medical school if she is squeamish??????????????
I wanted to be a Dr...... but I was squeamish working as a Candy Striper in The Emergency room as a teenager.... so I gave up my dream..... Oh there are so many questions in life.

Then the back is out, it is covered in blood. The Dr. puts it in a specimen cup......K thinks it is cool..... she wants to take it to school and show everyone???? She's going to be a Dr. I bet!

We make it back to pick up J. He has lost his other front top tooth and tells the story of it coming out and blood everywhere on his desk at school. I'm more concerned about it on his white uniform shirt.... but there is none.
I ask K to choose between Starbucks & Foster Freeze. WE all go to Foster Freeze for anything they want on the way home. French Fries for all. J gets his first Root Beer float. He's been wondering about one for a couple weeks.
K an oreo blizzard; D an m&m blizzard; & Reese's pb cup blizzard for me.

DID I Mention that I whacked the side rear view mirror of the Yukon on the garage on the way out and shattered the mirror in it>>>>>>>>>>>

Will it ever end???? NO????? Take a number!!

if your wallet is stolen or lost.... notify

yes my wallet was stolen or lost at the mall friday night.
Sadly I didn't figure it out until I'm in the checkout lane at Lowes. But I had other credit cards and ID so they let me pay for my 3 ceiling fans and check out.
I hoped and prayed my wallet was just fallen out and still in the car.... but it was not.
I checked my ATM records online at home and saw 4 attempts to use it.
Called to close that account and the other 2 cards that were in there.
I can't get a DMV appointment to replace my drivers license until 10/24?????

the baby is sick

Don't you hate it when the baby is throwing up and there is nothing you can do.
You can't even explain it to them or let them know it will be over soon.
Poor D. he's not a baby, at 35 months, but, he was struggling so hard to understand what was going on with his body this morning when he was throwing up over 3 different episodes.
But he took a good nap, actually fell asleep exhausted.... and woke up with a good appetite and feeling much better in the late afternoon.

G bought the Robots movie yesterday, so we've been watching it over and over and over.......
until the end showed scenes from Ice Age 2 ..... so we had to dig out Ice Age and watch that.
