Momma Said There'd Be Days Like This

Ya'll this has been a day for the books. I'm not complaining when I document the following occurrences. I'm actually laughing out loud and hoping I don't have another 24 hours like this EVER again!!

1. The day starts with me corresponding with show guests cancelled yesterday due to storms.

2. One said guest shows up unannounced for LIVE show, but all is well.

3. Reporter's story falls through leaving me short on time for tomorrow's show.

4. Co-worker tells me clothes make me look "bigger" on air. She was trying to be nice, but it wasn't the best day.

5. Pull extra hours to help co-worker out. I volunteered to do this, so it's what happened next that lands this on my list.

6. Said interview turns out to be a video only shoot that I wasn't actually needed for.

7. Van breaks down on way home from work.

8. Make it to Advance Auto, but can't get it to start leaving parking lot.

9. Pray whole way to mechanic that was less than a half mile from Auto Zone.

10. Have to leave van overnight and swing by work to pick up utility van to drive.

11. Pick Eli up 5 hours late!

12. Swing by grocery for healthy meal essentials aka... Hamburger Helper.

13. Make it home to cook said meal, but realize there is no milk.

14. Take screaming 2 year old to gas station in husband's car to purchase overpriced milk.

15. Eat dinner, leave mess in kitchen, bathe said two year old, pray for a better day, hit the hay!

As the old saying goes, "March comes in one of two ways." For me, it was like a lion. Let's hope it goes out like a lamb! Haha!!

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
