Well can you believe that last night Nikki found a dress for the play! Its so amazing what can happen if you just open your mouth and ask people!
So here is how may day went and this is real. I could not make this stuff up!
6:00 alarm goes off must get up and get moving. I need to be out the door by 7.
6:45 Nikki walks in and said that she missed the bus, so I leave a little bit early.
7:15 get to the gas station get gas. I get back in the truck only to find out the battery is dead.
7:20 call Rusty. Rusty is 20 minutes past me, so he turns around to come give a jump.
7:40 Rusty shows up and realizes that someone has stolen his jumper cables, so I found someone with cables and we get a jump.
7:45 I am on the road for a long drive drive down to base. The road I usually take is closed so I now have to drive and extra 45. I don't mind, but I am running behind.
8:30 I finally made it to Ray's house. I got lucky and hit no traffic on the freeway! I was asked to start packing up the food. Not a problem. I got some boxes and just started. I wrote notes on the box's so that the triplets would have fun reading them.
12:30 I was in the master bathroom packing some stuff up when I turned around Rusty was standing there. I about wet my pants. I did not hear him come in so he scared me. I told Rusty to follow me because I had something for Ray. So we go out to the living room and I walked up to Ray and I handed him some birth control pill and said "If Sonja ( his wife) had taken these then you would not need this. (I handed him an empty first response pregnancy test) Then she would not have needed these ( I handed Ray some pre natal vitamin). Rusty then grabbed me and pulled me out of smack range.
1:00 Rusty, Ray and I went to lunch. Ray is so stressed out. He has two days to get his house packed, and loaded before he has to go up to Washington to drop his boat off. Then he will be driving to Iowa to be with his family. The truck needs new brakes and his son is having surgery on Friday.
1:30 Elle calls. I told her about our friends coming home. She tells me that she was hanging out with this guy last night, and then someone knocked on the door. So she answered it. It was this guys girlfriend and she had a gun! Elle high tailed it out of there.
2:00 I have to go to the south side of base to get some stuff for Ambers yard sale.
2:45 get there and get the stuff loaded. I am on my way home.
3:30 I am half way home. Rusty calls me to tell me that he locked his keys in the truck. I told him that I would be down there later. I did not even have a key to Rusty's truck with me.
3:40 Both of the girls start calling me and bitching about the other one. This goes on until I get home.
4:15 I back CJ's truck right up on to the grass. I walk into the house and bitch slap both of the girls for acting like they are 2 years old. I tell Amber to go unload the truck. And I run off to the bathroom.
4:20 I grabbed Rusty's key and head down the hallway. I tell Amber to that she will have to find a ride to work, and I tell Nikki that she will have to find a ride to play practice. I told Amber to take Ryan to our friends house.
4:30 I am back on the road to San Diego! I am thinking about how the girls have been acting and I trying to come up with good punishment for them.
5:00 I call the house and tell Nikki that she and Amber will have to find a time to talk to me about their punishment. Then I have Amber get on the phone and I tell her the same thing.
* here is what I came up for the punishment. The two of them are going to scrub the kitchen from top to bottom. Even the shelves will have to come out of the fridge. I am not letting them off that easy because here is the catch. I am using an ace bandage and I am taping one arm and one leg together. They will have no choice but to be next to each other and they will have to work together since they each will only have one arm. I will be giving them 1 toothbrush to use on the floors. So they will have to work together. I figure they will either kill each other, or they will have to get along and work as a team.*
6:30 I get to Rustys work and I unlock his truck. I go inside and Kevin and his friend Dustin are in the back talking with Rusty. So we all decide to go to the stuff club for dinner. We call Ray and ask him to meet us there.
7:00 we finally get to eat. Kevin mentions that they have no hot water since their boiler broke. So everyone is taking cold showers. Ray asks what his building number is and the boys tell him. Ray tells the boys that he will have it fixed by tomorrow night. It seems that Ray knows someone in base maintenance. The boys are happy.
8:00 I am finally on my way home.
8:45 I am home! There was no traffic so I was able to get in fast lane and just fly! The girls are both in much better moods and Ryan is in bed. I have managed to get one load of laundry done today. I think that is all I have gotten done around here!
I smell like dust and card board. I hurt. I am so wiped out. I am sorry not commenting, but I am just going to go to bed.
