Today was a whirlwind.

I made it to class this morning. I got back my last essay and got an A- on it. He looked over the rough drafts that a few of us actually brought in (soooooooo not feeling bad about only having 3.5 out of 6 pages with me... out of the dozen people that actually showed up, he sent 3 guys home for not having a rough draft at all, and everyone around me only had 3-4 pages done too!). I've got a bit of feedback to go on, so with a little bit of His help I should get my essay done and ready to turn in next Friday.

I left school and stopped at Del Taco on the way home for breakfast... got home and left again shortly thereafter to go to Joann's. Got a call while at Joann's from one of Sabrina's friend's mothers asking me if I could pick up her daughter after school and watch her for a bit. Left Joann's and went to Petco. Came home and made Niko's lunch. Did 2 loads of laundry. Did the dishes, then left to pick up the *four* girls.

Got everyone loaded in the van, including my Dad, and hightailed it out to a park 20+ miles away to meet up with some strangers friends... all lovely ladies that I had met 7-8 years ago on AOL's breastfeeding or cloth diapering boards. Two of them I had met and hung out with several times before, but the third was a special treat as she lives over 10 hours and two states away - her family was in California to visit Disneyland. It's so much fun to finally meet in real life!


Sabrina allowed the kids to completely bury her in the sand. I am going to be washing sand out of her hair for eons.

Came home, gave the kids more snack foods. One of the neighbor girls showed up at my house too... *five* girls now. They were playing inside, outside, on the Wii, painting each others nails, dancing... Started prepping for dinner. Sabrina's friend's mom came to pick her up, hubby got home, cooked dinner, ate, watched Hell's Kitchen... I am ready to collapse. My head hurts. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
