who am i ?

...I'm not a "stay at home mom", because I'm never home....I'm not a "housewife", because that implies being married to the house...not quite. A home-maker? maybe....anyway, we went ramming around town again today, the outlet mall....here is Camille Anaya.... Do these little angels look like they're up to something? Notice the rabbit ears on Kathryn, thanks to Evelyn. Kathryn, Evelyn, Suzanne, Jonathan, Sonja, and Charlotte Claire in front of Kathryn....They all have their new dresses on except Jonathan, who has a new shirt on....
Here is Miss Charlotte Claire with a new dress on...$4.99 at the Childrens' Place...

Charlotte Claire and Jonathan in the ice cream truck....Emily and Abigail put money in it, and uh-oh, they liked it!



Here is Jon climbing on Bigger Birder, as he is called here.





Here is Evelyn Joy, the lucky school skipper.....with Charlotte Claire


Here is Camille, the amazing nursing baby....in her carriage. I like taking the carriage out shopping, because when she gets tired, I just lay her on her tummy, she finds her thumb, and she's happy....






So, I went shopping again...I haven't been to the outlet mall in a long time. By the time I get a few things for each kid, wow it adds up. But I am a cheapy.
I am watching American Idol with the little girls, but the channel doesn't come in very well, and Kathryn keeps trying to get it to come in. We live in the country!
We called Molly when we left the mall, and asked her to put the meat on the grill....she is only 14, but she did a great job grilling steak and chops.....Paul inventoried our freezer, and we're trying to eat what's in there....
Tomorrow I'm going shopping yet again....I am out of sugar, almost out of wipes, and need to stock up on diapers, because last time I only got a small package....so, to BJ's....I think I might just get up and run without the kids, Charlotte Claire missed her nap already today, and she may just turn into a monster. Em is home tomorrow, as is Abigail.....Abigail is looking for a job, but part of me secretly hopes she doesn't find one....She is such a sincere, faithful girl.....she's funny, reliable, precise, helpful, just a good girl. She's twenty one years old, and she just finished her third year of college, an accounting major. Well, Kathryn got the channel in, oops, gone again.....

I have not been to the outlet mall in eons! It takes me about an hour (I think) to get to the one in Waterloo. I have the same problem with the Freihofer's Bread Outlet. Too far to Geneva and too far to Henrietta. May as well pay the extra and shop in Webster as that's only 15-20 minutes away.
