One Of Those Days

Yesterday was one of those days around the Watson home. You know exactly what I'm talking about.

One of those days where your husband pulls a muscle in his back and is sent home from the doctor on bed rest.

One of those days you drop your housework, bail on the diet and sit around watching movies and eating fast food so that your husband feels loved.

It was one of those days where your 80 lb dog decides to sleep on your injured husband's chest.

One of those days when you do 30 loads of laundry and still can't find the pants you need.

One of those days where you pull a "dry clean only" shirt out of the wash...oops!

It was one of those days were it takes an act of Congress to cook a meal.

One of those days were your son dumps a bag of cheese on the kitchen chair just as you finish cleaning up from dinner.

One those days that your playroom looks like this and you could care less.
Yesterday was one of those days that is quite literally insanely normal.

One of those days where I praise God for a man to nurse back to health.

One of those days where I praise God for having too much food instead of not enough.

One of those days where I praise God for the laughter found in an 80 lb dog.

One of those days where I praise God for clothes to wear even if it means extra laundry.

One of those days where I praise God for a happy, healthy little boy even if he does slow me down and make messes.

One of those days where I praise God for a home to mess up and enough spaces to even have a playroom.

It was one of those days that the blessings of my life far outweigh the stresses, one of the days I praise God for the chaos, and the joy it brings into our home.

Yeah, it was one of those days!!


  1. I needed to read this. I so need to change my perspective and realize how freakin blessed I am! Thanks for the reminder.

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
