Thanks to this lovely title, I now the Patsy Cline song, "Crazy" running through my head.  Anyone else?

It's only Tuesday, and so far the week has lived up to the title.  Let's review, shall we?

If ya'll don't know by now, I like to be busy.  It's just a spice of life that keeps things interesting, which is probably a good thing since yesterday involved working, running to the grocery, picking up a dress from the post office, going to the bank, cleaning, cooking dinner and doing laundry.

I know you're probably thinking to yourself, "Morgan, that's not crazy.  That's normal." You would be right, but stick with me because here comes the crazy part.  I'm singing at my brother's wedding this weekend, and as luck would have it, the practice CD got jammed in my disc player.  Nine hours and several attempts later, it finally came out, but it was too late to practice...rrh!!

Fast forward to bedtime which is never a pleasant experience in our household, but this week is one for the books.  After being gone all last week, Eli is just a little out of whack he thinks 11:00 is bedtime.  After Sunday's little bedtime debacle, I decide to ease him back into our usual routine.  So, I gave him a bath at 8:00 like normal.  Rather than go to bed at 9:00, I let him watch a movie  hoping he'd drift off.  Not so much...10:00 folks!! It was a whole hour earlier, so I'm hopeful that tonight could be closer to normal.

Things got a little crazier at midnight when an animal yelping woke me up.  I'm still not sure what was going on, but I'm going to risk being tacky and say that I think it might be cat mating season.  Anyway, I dozed back off only to wake up two more times to pee. Oh the joys of pregnancy.  Confident that I couldn't possibly pee another drop, I fell asleep quickly.

You guessed it, my shut eyed didn't last long.  The stupid battery in the smoke alarm decided it was dead and should beep.  I didn't know how to change it, and didn't want to wake up Eric, so I retreated to the family room.  Don't get me wrong.  I could still hear it, but it was less offensive.  Finally, Eric awoke and at 3:00 in the morning we were on the search for a 9 volt battery and step latter.

No sooner had we solved the problem and drifted back into dreamland than it happened again. I kid you not.  The smoke detector in Eli's room did the same exact thing.  It was by the grace of God alone that we had another battery!

The peace and quiet didn't last too long.  As I fell asleep for what I was certain the final time, Eli cried out.  Yay!  Needless to say, our night was exciting, but would you believe it continued this morning.  I didn't realized it had frosted, and my car was covered when I left for work at 5:00 am.  The defroster only worked on the driver's side which meant I was leaning out the window trying to see the road.  The good news is it wasn't broken.  I didn't know that I had the stupid thing on duel control rather than driver control....rrh!

Once I could finally see and stick by head back in the window, I realized something else.  I could smell something burning, really?  Out the window my head pops once again.  I even asked the drive-thru lady at McDonald's is she smelled anything when I stopped for coffee.  Please don't fret, after talking with Eric, we confirmed it was a little oil from the oil change yesterday!!

You would think the nonsense ended there, but you'd be wrong.  I wrote down an interview for 10:00 instead of 9:00.  Not only were we 45 minutes late, we had an equipment error too.  Nice!  Haha!

I'm really not upset, and you know why?  This is stuff they can't make up, even the best sitcom writers! Ha!  Plus, it makes for awesome stories (and maybe bored readers.)  Oh well.  This is my journal. and I want to remember the insanity!

I also want to remember how no matter what chaos I deal with early on, seeing my son in the afternoon makes it all melt away.  That's why you're enjoying pictures from our trip to the park and library.  They are the moments that make life so sweet.  They are moments that will forever be etched in my memory, and they are the moments that are all too fleeting, and the speed at which they pass is perhaps what is most CRAZY!!

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
