BSB & Back To School

Wow, went to the Backstreet Boys lastnight with Niamh...and wow, were they ever amazing!
Boogied and sang my heart out the whole night.
Was outraged at my fellow Kelonians' behaviour after the concert...was absolutely disgusted.
Danielle and Niamh spent the night, seeing as Ni and I didn't get back until about midnight. We were kinda freaked out because on our way home, from the halfway point of the bridge to as far on the westside that we could see from the bridge, the power was out. So we were kinda thinking that home mighta been without power, but they were't thankfully.
All day Saturday, Darius had a little lump on his forehead, but it only looked like he bonked it with something, then Sunday, it started to get really large. Like, actually swelling, which I thought was weird, so I took him to the walk-in clinic. The Dr. said to just put ice on it...*rolls eyes*. Carry on to today, and he's still quite swelled, except it's spread to just above his right eye, and down to the bridge of his nose, and he almost looks freakish. Plus, the corners of his eyelid areas is starting to turn reddish. *sighs* We've been putting ice on it, but it doesn't seem to help it, but if it does anything, it's just keeping it from getting too big. He also whalloped it good this morning whilst showering with daddy because he slipped while being too rambunctious (which usually means he's hitting a growth spurt). Lots of ice.
Got up this morning, and dragged myself outta bed, had breakfast, fed Darius and showered. By then Danielle and Niamh still weren't awake. They didn't roll outta bed till about 11. Lucky bums. After everyone looked decent, we ehaded out the door cause the girl's still had some school shopping left to do for Niamh. We took them to Winners, where they decided they didn't feel good and wanted to head home early. :oP So, we parted way, and I dcided to take us to Wal-Mart for some Darius Pre-School shopping. :o] how exciting. Not like there was lots that I needed to buy, but I only really needed some snacks, and new shoes since he's actually growing out of the ones we have here for him. he really only fits about 3 pairs out of the 8 pairs that we have. And they're a little difficult to keep track of. So, new stylin' shoes, some yummy & healthy snacks...and a few miscellaneous things for us adults and the home...and 132 dollars later. *sighs* Oh well. It's all made up for just watching Darius walk about trying on his new shoes, repeatedly, and then putting them in his backpack, and practising putting on and taking off his backpack for school. :oD He's really excited about going to Pre-School. :o] I can't wait for his friest day, which is Thursday.
Have resolved myself to doing at least SOME sewing this week to get Darius some decent looking school clothes because I need to leave a spare with the school for him, just-in-case.
Snagged some Arby's and spent the rest of the afternoon and evening out at Chance's friends' place in Winfield. Was actually really enjoyable, minus the really cold breeze.
Over-all, was a good weekend. Had a date with Chance on Friday night, which almost got ruined, but was rescued barely. Still managed to have somewhat of a good night. Went 4x4-ing on Saturday, and spent about 9 hours out wheeling, and about another 2 at Chance's friends' house...we were gone for just over 12 hours by the time we got home.
Busy weekend...but that's the way long weekends are supposed to be...right?
