Today is day 3 of my 10 days with 4 kids. I'm having a really great time with them but I'm exhausted!! Friday we did nothing all day and I cooked meatloaf and mashed potatoes and corn for supper. Saturday morning, Blue showed up with donuts for the kids. He didn't sleep here on Friday because he worked late. Saturday morning I also woke up with a scratchy throat and a terrible pain in my ear/jaw. M3 and I went to the after hours clinic to get a prescription and then to the store. M1 was at a friends' house Friday night and M2 and D stayed with Blue. I didn't know at the time but they were baking me a birthday cake. Yesterday was my 28th birthday. M3 and I came to pick up the rest of the pack and headed to the movies. D was invited to a birthday party at the theatre so we dropped him there and then the four of us went to DSW. I bought some shoes (that I tried to find online but I cannot) and so did M1. Then, we all went back to the theatre to watch the movie. It was such a cute movie. Then we all came back here and Blue grilled hamburgers for us. The kids gave me an adorable cake and a present. I have pictures. It was really nice and sweet and I appreciated it so much. Today, we went to church. I loved it. I have been to this church a few times but I'm really thinking of joining a Bible study there. I would like to find a church home. This may be it. I met some great people and had a nice morning. After church, we went to eat Mexican food and now we are resting. I have to bring three children back to church tonight for choir and youth group. M1 is 15 and the kids don't have school tomorrow so she has invited two friends over tonight. If you are keeping score, that is six kids for me tonight total! Three 15-year-old girls, a 13-year-old and one 8 and one 9-year-old. It's really not that bad. I am having a great time! I am so busy and I don't have any time to do anything but take care of kids though. I like it a lot. I'm usually not so busy. I'll be back soon but I cannot promise when.
