This is pathetic. I used to blog every single day. Today is the first time I’ve even opened my blog in M.O.N.T.H.S. Bah!
The 3 girls have been in Arizona for the last week. Taryn & Tahni for gymnastics camp; Camryn as an adult presence (& stand in for mom). Tahni Skyped me Monday morning, texted me a couple times throughout the day, then Skyped me again at bedtime. That’s the last I’ve heard from her. Taryn has been texting me every day since then, but ended up calling me Thursday morning. She wasn’t feeling well – pukey feeling. She ended up skipping both practices on Thursday, but went on Friday morning (she was feeling better) & I assume she probably went Friday night.
Camryn called me Tuesday night. I knew it was her (yay, caller id!) but the first thing out of her mouth was “Help me!” Talk about giving your mother a heart attack! “Why? What’s wrong?” She was in charge of dinner & the chicken was breaded, but not cooked. She didn’t know what to do with it. I walked her through the directions & told her she could call me back if she needed to. She did, about 15 – 20 minutes later. Apparently, she did fine. Taryn said it was really good, & she said Shelly told Cam she was proud of her!
I’ve had a relatively quiet week. Darci worked at the gym every night so I didn’t even have to go down there!
Monday, the boys & I went to Darci’s to swim, then she came here on Tuesday to do her hair. We actually didn’t have enough time & we had tornado warnings. She decided to go home before the worst of the storm got here. The boys & I hung out in the basement for 45 minutes until it was clear.
Wednesday, I went to Darci’s to do her hair, then we went on down to my parents’ house. Caitlin & Elena & the little girls came in later too. Thursday…. I don’t think I actually did anything or went anywhere. (Well, except the typical laundry, dishwasher, etc). Friday was grocery day, then after getting it all unloaded & put away, Kiernan & I met up with Darci at the Armed Forces Recruitment Center. He wanted to talk to the Air Force recruiter, but no one was in their office. The Marine recruiter was in his office, so we talked to him. He had K take a test of some kind to make sure it wasn’t a waste of anyone’s time. I don’t remember what the required score was… maybe 50 something???? Anyway, K got 75. He told him that with that score, he could pretty much do whatever he wanted. 😀 We spent close to 2 hours there talking to them. I think he might be leaning in that direction. (He talked the entire way home! That’s twice now!) If you know Kiernan at all, he’s extremely quiet & doesn’t say much.
Anyway…. today has pretty much been a waste. A trip out for breakfast, to the bank, & home. I folded Tahni’s clothes & put them on her bed & that’s about it. I’ve texted with Taryn a couple of different times, but she’s the only one I’ve heard from. I asked if she was ready to come home…”Yeah, I should be, but I’ll miss Arizona.” She fell in love with it just like Camryn did the first time she went.
Oh! They did get to go out for lunch & shopping with their Aunt Vickie on Wednesday. I guess they only had a 2 hour practice in the morning & nothing that night, so it worked out well.
I guess that’s about it for now.
Getting their boarding passes.
