My work:
Today I got to catch up on laundry! My new machine has a handy 30 minute cycle for lightly soiled clothes... If only the dryer had one of those... This without Taryn's aid, as she slept poorly last night, woke up with a headache and was vomiting most of the day.

Bob's work:
He didn't get the mobility thingy job, so after his class this week he will return to the fuel shop - on day shift. He also didn't pass the CLEP test he took during his last training, but we didn't except him to, really, since he hadn't studied at all. SO he still needs a math credit to get his Associates degree.

Bob got home at 2:30 today, and was wound up about digital camcorders. He's wanted one for awhile, but we recently started really looking at them. So we compared the two decent ones the BX has, and a lot of the features were about the same, so we decided the decision would come down to how it felt/looked/operated. Since we needed to grocery shop anyway, we packed up and went to the base. Looked at the cameras, and were toying with some ideas when an employee walked by and said the JVCs go on sale Friday. huh. He even found us a sale ad. So the JVC with the same size hard drive and same number of pixels will be $120 less than the Sony, which has a touch screen that Bob doesn't like anyway. Therefore we decided Bob will go to the BX on Friday and buy the JVC. Model GZ-MG 330 if anyone is interested.

After that we had some pizza, and I went to the commissary for some necessities. Didn't make it to Tesco, so I'll probably make bread tomorrow. (Tesco has whole wheat bread for 39p!)

Oh, at the BX we noticed a long line at Baskin Robbins, and Bob remembered today was $0.31 scoop night. I hadn't bothered to remember the date since I knew we wouldn't come in for ice cream, but since we were there anyway... The children had some crazy-looking purple swirl stuff, and I had chocolate with cookie dough. Bob didn't want any.

It's 10pm and I'm still wound up from drinking coke at dinner.

I'm running as fast as I can...but not fast enough to always catch up with everytone! Still reading with interest.

I'm so glad you have a washer again. You must have to do a load daily with all the kids playing so much. So sorry about Taryn getting chicken pox. I knew you could get chicken pox twice, but I thought the vaccine would protect kids from getting it twice. I personally think kids are getting vaccinated way too early and way too much.

Sorry about Bob, but next time if you post when he's testing I'll pray for him. Hopefully that help.

Have a fabulous day!
