Tuesdays.....Tuesdays.....ah, Tuesdays....

I didn't make it to the gym. I'm trying to work out how to do this on Tuesdays. I can't go to the gym, drive back out here and make it back to the base by 8:30...... but Bible study was good....lots of great ladies to meet...lots of new ladies....

While at Bible study - before - I heard that Jared's physical therapy appt was moved up to tomorrow. He also has a kidney ultrasound and blood pressure reading tomorrow....AND I received a call that he was ill. Please pray that he is well enough for these appointments tomorrow. 

We came home and did a bit of "stuff"....then I took Arielle back to the base for Middle School Drama (I love typing that - always reminds me of Deja and our jokes).  I had planned to go to the gym but was feeling a great need for ISOLATION - time to be alone and SILENT...and so I crept into the conference room with my journals and Bible and enjoyed 90 minutes of bliss.

We made a quick run to the commissary.

As I cooked Zander and Nolan kept chasing flies and talking about bugs.....hmmmmm?

When I was looking for a "26" photo.....I found this.... mystery solved. He looks so cute in my entry way.

NOW - what in the world do we do to keep him alive? The kids are totally excited to have a pet and say it's not as good as a Beagle or Siba but until Dad remembers to vote on a puppy.......how could I say no to such a diversion? ::snort::

Arielle and I are going to go watch Mrs. Potter.

Drama...funny. We are in the throes of Nutcracker with a snow/waltz (Emma), soldier/tea (Ellie) and a PRINCE (guess who)...mix that up with 3 nights of basketball and know that you're not the only one running around like a crazy woman ;-)

Middle School Drama... isn't that a redundancy?!

About the frog - most pet stores (at least here in Washington) sell live crickets very cheaply. We've kept frogs as pets, feeding them a cricket a day. And fun for the kids to watch them eat :D

You need something to keep the crickets in, and you have to feed them - lettuce or something else that's leafy. Pretty easy to manage. MUCH easier than a dog!

Will try to find a store with live crickets - may be a challenge with my limited Japanese.....

Deja - really - Eric is the prince?????? Cool.
