Weekend Review

This weekend has been rather hectic. I wanted to post this story yesterday but I didn't really have time (see explanation below). Friday Megan stayed home from school and we tried to get some things done around the house. I had to finish getting ready for the Super Saturday. Betty said Meg could come visit her for a while if I didn't want to drag around two kids while I ran errands. Meg stayed for about 6 hours with her. I think they both had a good time. I ran to Michael's to pick up a few more things I needed for the next day. At 6:00 we did some set up at church. We had some help from Mike, Kelly G., and Greg. Thanks for your help. Then we headed home and had our family movie night. We watched the new movie, Barbie as The Island Princess. It's a cute movie as all the Barbie ones are. I believe Mat is a romantic. She would get all excited and cheer when Ro and the Prince would meet or end up together. She's funny. We put the kids to bed and then I had more prep work to do but I didn't last long. I couldn't keep my eyes open so I was in bed by 11! That's early for me.

Saturday we got up early and headed to church to get things ready. Mickey got out a TV for the nursery and then he and the kids went to Megan's soccer game.

Trying for a Goal

I was at church until 2 doing the Super Saturday. It's a craft day for women. Not many came. Maybe they aren't crafty, I don't know, but those who came had a good time. The big hit was a 72 hour kit. These are great for emergencies or to keep in the car in case you get stuck for hours on the highway. After the clean up I came home and napped for a couple of hours. I can't really remember what else happened except Mickey and Kade went to the store for Kade's dad date and they brought home a few groceries and a movie. I can't even remember if I made dinner or not. After the kids were in bed Mickey and I watched The Prestige. This movie was recommended to us by the Williams. I liked it but was a little confused. The end cleared up some things but I think the ending could be better. I'll have to watch it again.

Sunday Megan was still itching her head. We all went to church but Mickey, Meg, and Kade left after Sacrament Meeting with Mike and they went to visit Betty. I got to drive Betty's car to her house after church. It was nice but different than both our cars. The kids snacked and visited with Grandma. Then we had to leave. Mat announced it was her teacher's birthday and I thought we could make up something and take it to her, she only lives a few streets away. Mat helped me make up a recipe in a jar for chocolate chip cookies. Mattey, Megan, and I rode our bikes over to Sister Miller's house and gave her the jar and wished her a Happy Birthday. It turns out her birthday isn't until Wednesday. Oops, better early than late. We came home and I made omelets for dinner. The girls really like these with ham and cheese. Then it was bed time again. This is a happy and difficult part of the day. Happy for me because it will be quiet for a while but difficult because they don't want to sleep. Anyone with kids knows this. Mat has also been coughing and sniffing. Great she's getting sick again.

Monday morning I spotted more lice in Meg's hair. I took Mat to school because we were running late. When we came home I got on the computer and started looking up ways to get rid of lice. Apparently the RID we used doesn't actually kill the eggs, just the live lice. Nice. I found a few people raved about Denorex shampoo and some people rinse with vinegar to dissolve the eggs or at least make them less sticky. So we went out and got some Denorex and chocolate of course. That makes everything better, just ask Janel. I got Meg in the tub and used a lot of the shampoo in her hair. We let it sit for about 20 minutes, then rinsed, and repeated. This shampoo is for dandruff and it really makes your scalp tingle, also my hands.

Sudsy Meg

Megan didn't seem to mind. She lay in the warm tub listening to a story on CD, Hank the Cowdog. I rinsed out the shampoo again, it was only about 5 more minutes, and then rinsed her hair with vinegar. When I let Meg smell it in the bottle she said it smelled good but once it was in her hair she changed her mind. I then spent about 3-4 hours pulling out all the eggs I could find. My shoulders and back were sore and tight. Meg did really good. I asked her if I got lice if she would pick out all the eggs for me. She said, "No." That's nice to know. The shampoo really helped with her itchy scalp. She got to go to soccer practice at 6. Mat came home from school with her homework and a request for apples, something about the first day of Autumn and Johnny Appleseed Day. Luckily I had some burrito filling in the freezer because after all that picking and doing 5 loads of laundry I really didn't feel like making dinner.

In the evening Mickey and I watched one of the handful of shows we watch together, Heroes. Mickey was thrilled to watch this show in HD. Personally I didn't notice that much difference. Maybe with LOST I will. That's going to be gorgeous.

So that was our long weekend in review. Hope you had a good one. Today is back to normal. Megan was lice free this morning so she went to school. Yea! I got my workout in while Kade watched Disney Channel. Time for my shower. Have a good week.
