Let me just say I feel like I have been run over by a steam roller. I am tired, sore, every bone and muscle in my body feels as though it has been through a war. The past 2 days have really taken there toll on me. I now admit it. I am not 29 anymore, lol. I am 46 and a grandmother. I'll take my shawl, slippers and rocking chair now please. And a double dose of Geritol too, lol.
So, yesterday, I went over Emma's, and the kids wanted to go out and play. So, I sat out in the yard for 2 hours with them playing. I enjoyed watching them play, and Daniel chase the girls around the yard. Then he decided he wanted to collect rocks. This child loves rocks. Marissa begged me to go to the beach with us today. So, I gave in, (she knew I would). So, last night Emma dropped Marissa off to me at 6pm. The girls played til 9:pm then it was bedtime.
I woke them up at 6:am, to get ready. Jim was taking us to the beach. We went to Sea Side Heights. We left the house at 7:am. We were 5 minutes from the beach and Marissa throws up all over herself, the seat and the carpet, which in turn made Rebecca sick too. Jim finds a safe place to pull over. I clean up Rebecca, get her to stand outside the van near Jim. Get Marissa unbuckled and gt her out of the van and clean her up. The whole time she is crying and saying I'm sorry Mommom. Poor kid, it wasn't her fault and I told her that. It seemed to calm her down some. I got the trashbag, paper towels, spray cleaner, baby wipes and citrus wipes and cleaned up the entire mess, sprayed the seat and floor down with Fabreeze and put the kids back in the van. I was worn out by the time I got back in the van. We finally got to the parkinglot outside the bathroom and shower houses. We unload the car, umbrella, 2 chairs, cooler, basket of toys, bag of chips and the wipes, my cooler pack, and a small back pack holding my camera, cellphone, keys and the Coppertone spray SPF 50. That stuff is great. The girls were in the sun from 8:30 til 1:pm and didn't even burn. They had a great time playing in the sand and the water. By 1:pm I was ready to leave and so was Jim. We were worn out. I didn't get a pic of Jim but I will tomorrow. He is so red. He is fried. He took a shower when he got home, and went to bed with air conditioner on. Poor thing is hurting and I have nothing for it, except vinegar.If he gets up later I'll put some on him. It always takes the sting out of the sunburn. He'll smell like a salad, but at least he'll feel better. I didn't get burned. I sat under my beach umbrella in the shade.
It seemed like it took forever to get home. Jim took a shower, then I got the girls showered and clothes changed. Fixed them a sandwich and a glass of juice. Dan came over a few minutes after 6 to pick Marissa up. When 8pm rolled around, Rebecca was so ready for bed. She was so tired she didn't even want to brush her teeth. But after spending almost 1500.00 on dental bills for her, those teeth were brushed. She gave her daddy a kiss and hug, said goodnight to him and crawled into her bed. Her thumb was in her mouth before I even got the covers on her.
And yes, Lisa. I watchedPart 1 and Part 2 of CSI episode and it was awesome. Jim watched it with me. And I can tell you, we're both hooked, lol.
Well, that's about it I guess. I need to relax. I think I'll go make a cup of tea, play a game of Dice City Roller in POGO, and go to bed early myself. I am worn out, exhausted more then I have been in a long time.
I have a favor to ask of all of you. Could you pray for my cousin Carmen. She is trying to quit smoking. And is in need of some extra prayers. And as for her new Dog, Cooper. He saw the vet today and got a clean bill of health. Carmen said Cooper is healthy, teeth are great and his weight is perfect. Way To Go Cooper!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love to you all........................
