It's A Monday

Ya'll I woke up this morning with the best intentions to work, make my blog current, clean, go to the grocery and clean my house.  Yeah...doubt any of that will happen today.

I should have known it was a Monday when I hit a stupid bag in the middle of the road on my way into the station.  Of course it wouldn't come out from under the car, so I had to pull over on the side of the road at 5:00 am to try and get it out.

That's when I decided that I needed McDonald's Sweet Tea to get things rolling.  The problem is, when I pulled up to the window to pay I couldn't find my wallet.  Lucky for me, it was in the carseat.  This meant I had to once again put the car in park, get out, and search through the backseat to pay.  I'm so glad that I'm the only one who frequents a drive-thru at that hour because otherwise it could have been bad.

Now, you would think that was the end of this McDonald's episode, but you'd be wrong!  When I made it to the second window my car was beeping like crazy and I was trying to figure out what the heck was going on.  The poor man handing me my sweet tea had to inform me that I had left the back door open....good thing Eli wasn't in tow!

Fast forward to later this morning when I tried to upload pictures to blogger.  For some reason it wouldn't let me so I had to save them to my computer and then load then.  Can you say "time sucker!"  Anyway, when I family got them loaded, I got a nice little message informing me that I was out of space and would have to purchase more.  RRH.  Don't get me wrong, the $2.95 isn't an's running out to the car to find my wallet that's the problem.

So, this is my Monday sob story and my resolve to get you some pictures up by sometime tomorrow.  We really did have a great weekend, and I can't wait to share it with you.  Until then, I think an afternoon nap and a bubble bath are in order!!


  1. Haha, I had so many days like this during pregnancy! These little episodes reminded me of you leaving your car running in the parking lot freshman year...;) So funny.

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
