  • We did sleep in for a little bit today, but for some reason I couldn't go back to sleep. I read all of the internet and then decided that I should get up and be productive for a few minutes. Eventually, I even moved on to the treadmill for a bit this morning. I didn't want to, but I am really trying to walk 4 times a week...and since this is the last day of the week, I felt like I had to.
  • I then ran to pick up Campbell and Keaton. They had tons of fun spending the night at their friends' house. They were just finishing waffles and a game of Clue when I arrived. 
  • I brought them home and soon the Hogs game was on. During it, I did show Whitman how to make mac and cheese. Now, I am pretty sure that he isn't able to make it by himself, but at least I have shown him what to do. He had difficulty cutting through the butter so I at least know what we need to work on. 
  • The Hogs didn't do as well as we wanted-I tried to help by taking my nap the last few minutes of the game. I was able to sleep despite the yelling. At one point, everyone was yelling so that I thought that we were about to make a comeback. I didn't open my eyes though until the game just had a few seconds left, and then I saw that my nap didn't really have an effect on the outcome of the game.
  • After the game, Campbell, Keaton and I dropped Robby off at Grannymom's house to work on their taxes. Then we drove to Academy to find some soccer shoes. Gracious there was nothing there. Campbell did find some shoes that she was willing to pay 20 dollars for-I had a set limit that I would pay so she had to come up with the extra money.
  • There were no choices for Keaton except for black, and they didn't have her size. She is more frugal than her sister so I don't think she would have chosen anything extra even if she had that option. Thankfully, we were able to find her some that will be delivered this week-crossing my fingers that they fit since it is different size.
  • Campbell also ended up with a shirt and sports bra. She asked for the shirt but needed the other. Keaton didn't get anything extra, but she had just gotten a shirt during basketball practice. There were tons of people out shopping today at Academy.
  • Well, there were more people at Sams which is where we went after Grannymom's house. It was absolutely crazy there. It was so crazy trying to push the cart at Sams, that I didn't get one when the girls and I ran into Walmart. We should have-3 two liters, 2 things of cheese, 4 boxes of cornbread mix, and 6 bags of muffin mix-it was a lot for us to carry. But we were able to move around that store quickly since we didn't have a buggy.
  • After putting up the groceries, I started on supper. Potato soup, cornbread, chicken roll ups and leftover mac and cheese. It was all pretty good, and at least killed hunger. 
  • A bit later in the evening, the Wilsons came over to help us eat our dessert-a turtle cheese cake that we couldn't pass up at Sams. It was just calling our name and wouldn't let us leave the store without it. I have always loved cheesecake-and this one was especially delicious.
