So I'm up at 6:30 am. I must be getting old. Or been sleeping too much lol. So I'll do a recap of yesterday for you!
Yesterday morning started bright and early to get up and go to softball. Jessica had her first tournament game at 9:00, which meant that we had to be there at 8, which meant we had to leave the house by 7:30, which is why I was up at 6. Anyhow, got up and took my shower and made some pancakes since going to softball all morning and not eating breakfast is a very bad combination. Of course Jessica didn't want to EAT the pancakes because she hates breakfast foods. But she did manage to get 1/2 of one down. Everyone else ate just fine of course. So we decided we'd take 2 cars since Melissa had a game at 11 (had to be there around 10) and we knew they were going to overlap and they were at two different locations. So I left first with Jessica and Trevor.
Her game was at the Sports Complex. I had never been there before but it was soo nice! Bleachers where you could actually see what is going on with the game, no gopher holes for the kids to step in and a back stop that ALMOST stopped the foul balls from killing the fans. Their team actually did really well since they were playing the #1 team. They have the best team play the worst team which then makes the top bracket and the bottom bracket for the tournament. The game was 11 to 7 so we are now in the bottom bracket. Jessica of course was pissed off because the coach had her playing short stop instead of catcher. But we only have ONE MORE GAME if they lose the next one. I'm a bad mommy and am praying that they lose just so we don't have to deal with these idot coaches anymore! They play again on Monday (crap that's tomorrow!).
During the game Trevor went through his usual range of emotions. He was bored. I didn't bring his scooter out of the car since I wasn't sure if you were allowed to have scooters on that nice concrete. Apparently there was a sign somewhere but I never saw it and no one else cared because I saw lots of kids with scooters and skateboards. About half an hour into the game I had Scott go get his scooter out of car because he was driving me nuts complaining. That kept him busy for most of the game.
After the game we went over to Melissa's game. Scott's parents were there. It's been so nice this year with them coming to see the kids' games. They don't get out much at all so I'm sure it's really good for them too! Anyhow, Melissa's team lost too. They don't have tournaments though so it's not that big of deal and seriously most of the time they are more interested in what they are having for snack than if they won or lost. Scott was talking to the other coaches forEVer. God. So I grabbed Jess and left (Trevor went home with Grandma and Grandpa).
So I needed gas. Went to the big Safeway gas station since they are about the cheapest in town and I get 10 cents off a gallon if I spend $50 at time in their store, which let's face it, with 3 kids is totally easy to do. So everyone and their brother was there. I waited my turn and got my gas for $3.77 a gallon (what a bargain-NOT). So when I went to leave the guy behind me was up my ass and the car in front of me was too far over so I couldn't get out between him and the car across from him. I seriously thought the people behind me were going to shit their pants with all the excitment that was going on back there. Waving their arms, pointing to the too small hole between the cars in front of me, backing up but not enough for me to get out. Sheesh stupid people. Finally the car in front of me was done and they could get their gas.right.now. Seriously if things like this freak you out I think you need to step back and look at your "big picture" and be glad that this is the only thing you have to be upset about.
So off to the grocery store to hit the potty and get some stuff for dinner. I swear there is something wrong with Safeway's electrical. Everytime I go in there, no matter what kind of shoes I'm wearing I get shocked everytime I touch anything. Doesn't that seem like they have something wrong somewhere?
Then we went home. Melissa went to her friend's house and Scott was outside working on his car. Jessica was doing the I'm bored routine. So we decided to go to the movies. We went and saw the movie Baby Mama. I thought it was good but Jessica didn't like it that much. Guess that's the difference between being 14 and 34 with 3 kids. Anyhow it was cute.
We went over to Barnes and Nobles when we were done so I could go pick up my book Half-Assed that I had ordered. It's written by one of my favorite bloggers. Of course I have like 3 books I need to read before I get to this one but now I have it :O)
After picking that up and watching my 14 year old flirt with the guy there :eyeroll: we did a little bit of the mall crawl. I went and bought myself a pair of running shoes so I can stop using my crappy shoes as an excuse as to why I don't exercise. I really want to start jogging and at least now I have some shoes. Hopefully they won't kill my feet.
That's about it for my exciting day. Sorry it's like 3 miles long!Pin It
