I developed a sore throat Friday night, could feel it coming on at dinner. Ran a fever during the night, took some headache medicine on Saturday morning and felt ok. We had a busy Saturday, got our 'new' car registered-it cost us a whole $10 to do so! James had a softball game, once again the tradewinds have left, air is filled with vog and it is HOT! Poor #4 as soon as we got to the game he had sweat droplets on his head. Kids played around while the guys played ball. Other team didn't have enough players so it was just a scrimmage. Then we took our picnic lunch to a shady spot where it was a tad cooler and decided we'd go to the $1 theater to cool off. So we took the kids to see Horton Hears a Who. We had a good time, movie was silly. Got home rested and had supper(thanks to the crockpot)
Sunday, however, the fever wouldn't let me go. James got a lot of home projects done and kids got to practice their skills on being quiet.
I'm still not 100% but feeling better each day. #2 made me a cute get well card, my intent is to take a picture of it to share with all.

If you hear #4 calling for hat that means he is looking for the cat.

James officially started some college classes last night!!

I started playing the grocery game. I have a friend(or 2) that have had huge savings with this. I'm not sure how well it will be for me because of my location and being able to use the commissary but I'm going to try the trial run and see. I've also been reading about square foot gardening and may give that a try this summer as well. I haven't had much success in my gardening ventures out here due to space and kids/balls trampling stuff. But figure instead of waiting for the space I might try this new (to me) idea-it's not like food prices are getting any better.
