So the day went on and the kids had fun playing together... we put up a new swing for Millie which she LOVED
and then, since it got so dang hot outside we sat around watching Laura Croft movies (hubby) and reading books (me!).
The kids and I could NOT decide what we wanted for dinner.... it was getting late, we had a friend of Jessie's over and I HAD to feed them something. Jessie was begging for Ice Cream and Oreo's for dinner. Charlotte didn't mind what we had and Jack wanted Macaroni and Cheese. I decided that we would have a contest and who ever could do a head OR a handstand for the longest time would be able to choose what was for dinner. Jessie went first and did a head stand for 16 seconds. Charlotte went next, then Jack but Jessie still maintained the lead... then it was MY turn!! 20 seconds Baby!!! "WHOOT!!!" I declared "Broccoli Fritters for ALL!!!!" Jessie was indignant!! She claims she was unaware that she was able to lean against the wall for support. That was it. A "Head off" was declared. She went again....
FORTY SECONDS!! My turn.... um..... pitiful. She won!! Oreos and Ice Cream it was!!
I headed out to our local gas station where you can choose your flavor by the pint or quart etc so I chose vanilla fudge and rocky road ( hey, I wasn't going to eat it!!). The guy at the ice cream counter must have been new or something, he was scolded for taking off his hat whilst serving me and he could NOT find the right sized lid to put on the top of the ice cream. I really wanted to get going so I said, hey, it's ok, I've only go to go down the street so I picked up my already starting to melt ice cream. several snack packs of Oreos and headed to the check out. I paid the fella and then.... um... where are my car keys?? I never NEVER lose my car keys. I went back to the ice cream guy, I checked the cookie aisle.... no keys. I checked my pockets again, I checked my purse again.... sheesh! I MUST have left them in the car, I mean, hey, I had to have had them to GET here!!! So I headed out side into the near 100 degree heat and thought, huh, what's that sound? Sounds like someone's engine is running... ahem..... that's MY van.... uhhhhh.... yeah. Not only had I left the keys IN the car, I'd left them IN the ignition and left the engine ON and all the windows open, doors unlocked..... HELLO!!! Yeesh. So I sheepishly go home and share the story with the family ending the saga with "and that's what happens when I take my Happy Pills.....!" I'll have to make sure I leave myself a note to count all the kids when I go to the store!! ;D
